7th Saga


FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK

That is one of the hardest games I HAVE EVER PLAYED.


It's not so much hard as broken. They lowered stat growth per level because apparently the original was 'too easy'. And they absolutely broke it. Like that dragon that takes a hour to kill because you can only hit him for 1 damage. Not supposed to be like that, they just fucked the game up.

There's a way to really see the difference too, characters who aren't in your party get their original stat gains per level. Pick up the elf mage at a high level as a physical class. She'll be meleeing for like 300 when you're tapping things for 50.

That's what killed septerra core for me. Sloooow enemies. I really liked the setting, but I just couldn't get through it.

I started watching one piece again and I'm liking it. I stopped years ago because it got a little TOO weird with Chopper and hairy trannies who fight with ballerina techniques. Now I actually like Chopper and ballerina trannies are still annoying, but slightly more bearable.

 I think somewhere along the line Japan lowered my standards :P

what is Osterhagen Key an anagram of?


Earth's Gone.

Also, Storage Hen. I don't think that's what they were going for though. http://wordsmith.org/anagram/ is fun :P

Edit-Garnet shoe!

Lagoon could have been awesome(Well, decent at least) if your 'sword' wasn't so incredibly, incredibly small. You'd take damage running into enemies just trying to get in range to hit them. Agree on the music though. It was like 15 second repeating midis. But they were the best 15 second repeating midis ever created :P

Be sure to get spybot search and destroy or something to make sure you don't have any keyloggers so they can't just take the account again after you get it back. Wasn't a issue when I left, but I'd since heard RMT started using them for FFXI like they do for that other mmo. Getting the firefox browser with the noscript addon helps to stop you from getting new ones as well.

Edit-Oh, and update your Flash player. Older versions have vulnerabilities and you could get a keylogger from a flash ad banner or such without even clicking on it. Pretty big deal a few months ago with sites like allakazham having them.

Well the show likes to pull solutions out it's ass, but I think it was just fine in this case because there were consequences for doing it.

669  Media / Single-Player RPGs / voice acting so bad its funny. on: July 02, 2008, 10:15:23 AM

Unless you understand Japanese, that statement couldn't be more invalid. If you don't understand the words spoken, there is no way you could evaluate the quality of the voice actor's presentation of them.


That's the beauty of it. Acting could be horrible and you'd never know except in the extreme cases. Anime and game characters also have a tendency to say, well, stupid shit and it's a bit more forgiving to read it than it is to hear it.
670  Media / Single-Player RPGs / "Countdown Site" = Chrono Trigger DS? remake, new on: July 02, 2008, 09:09:40 AM
My interest all depends if it's really a remake. 'Remake' is used as kind of a blanket term, but there's actual remakes and then there's ports with a few extras. Remakes combine the nostalgia with a new experience. I'd only be interested in ports if I actually wanted to play them on the road. My DS generally doesn't go farther than a trip to the bathroom though :P

672  The Rest / General Discussions / Nerd girls are sexy now, it seems. on: June 24, 2008, 05:36:16 PM
I'd always found 'cute' to be just as attractive as 'sexy'. And cute often ends up being nerdy. Of course the articles theme seems to be a lot less 'cute is hot' as 'Dallas cheerleaders want to come to your house for some world of warcraft and then have sex with you.'.

I tried the first just a bit ago and gave up on it because while I enjoyed building up characters and such the game I was building them up in just wasn't very good.(Not even counting the horrible story and judge system. I knew those were faults before hand and accepted them before playing)

 Looking up info on the sequel I wasn't impressed. Not much new on existing jobs and in fact some were dumbed down to make 'new' ones. Green mage is a 'new' class that can cast things like protect and shell. And white mages can't cast protect and shell anymore. Things like that can be overlooked if they make a much better game, but doing that in the first place doesn't give me a ton of faith that they're making a good game.

 I'll have to see what people say about it. Can't really trust reviews too much because it has final fantasy in the name and because portables are held at a lower standard.

It feels like blind patriotism to support the 360. It's like an American car in the 70s. Fast but unreliable and prone to breakdown.


I don't even have a 360. So it's without bias when I say ps3 failed. I don't have a current gen console. I waited for ps3 to go down to a reasonable price and to start to succeed. Neither happened. I play WoW, DS and RPGs for the PS2, which still come out because RPG companies won't commit to a current console.

 Eventually though, I imagine I'll get a 360 and perhaps a wii as well along with a huge backlog. I guess I'm waiting for SE to put the nail in the coffin and announce FF13 as multi platform. If they stay exclusive PS3 it could actually turn the tide and others would follow, but I don't see that happening.
