736  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Disgaea 3 announced, PS3 game. on: July 17, 2007, 06:25:17 PM
The first Disgaea was like a huge feast. It's great, it satisfies you and when you're done...you don't want anymore. 2 came and went without me really caring even though I LOVED the first and now 3 will.

 And seriously, it's a niche series so why would you put it on a console nobody owns just to make it look like that?

It would have been a LOT better if they did this 8 years or so ago when the show was still good and people actually watched it. It's still kinda neat though :P
738  The Rest / General Discussions / The PS3 price tag gets teh slash'd on: July 09, 2007, 04:08:27 PM
Yeah, it's like they know the problem and are holding back and half assing the solution. And the longer they wait to bring it to a acceptable $300-350 price the more it's going to get burried.

Pirates of the Caribbean 2 followed by 3.

 I thought 2 was decent. Then I saw 3 and it said to me 'No, 2 sucked. This is how it's done'. Or at least '2 sucked until the last 15 minutes'(Which was a cliffhanger I'd have hated if I saw it when the movie came out. But it was awesome when you only have to wait a day instead of a year for the rest). 3 was great, I'd say on par or better then the first one.
740  The Rest / General Discussions / GameSpot revamping rating scale on: June 23, 2007, 05:30:06 AM
Quote from: "Zebulun"
I've always liked the /5 scoring system. No decimal points.

I agree, it forces a decisive score. Even 1-10 no decimals is a bit much. A 7/10 doesn't tell me much. It's the number between a mediocre game and a good one. On a five point scale it's a 3 or a 4. So the reviewer has to comit and say flat out whether he thinks the game is worth playing or not.

 Of course you could say the actual review is more important then the numbers, which would be right. But if a game got a undecisive score then the review will likely be the same.
741  The Rest / General Discussions / Good... cosplay? on: June 18, 2007, 06:00:59 PM
It's perfect..Kefka's just so much more of a fruit when you aren't reading his lines :P

 Calling Sephiroth a mama's boy was pretty awesome though.

This is pathetic! You sound like chapters from a self help booklet

I didn't think it was all that great a line...but I swear it's truer than ever these days.

When I was a foolish wee lad I read gamepro. Later on I read EGM and slowly stopped unless what was in a issue skimming through caught my eye. Then they started 'wrapping' them so you couldn't read it at the stands. I don't know if this was good for business overall or not, but when I would read something at the stand, if I liked it I'd buy it, even if I'd just read the part that interested me most. Since I couldn't skim anymore I stopped buying them altogether.

 I remember my friend having nintendo power too. And it was ammusing too, since it was during the dying N64 stages. Goldeneye graced the cover almost every month, long after Goldeneye was released.
744  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Wild Arms series on: June 10, 2007, 05:17:01 AM
Quote from: "CluelessWonder"
I was getting a heavy incestous vibe between two characters that I prayed was due to a crappy localization and not there in the orginal game.

Well, it DID come from Japan.
745  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Wild Arms series on: June 09, 2007, 07:18:17 PM
You see, Wild Arms 4 has really turned me view of the series around, so I'm thinking of taking a look back at the rest of the games.

That's probably the best in the series, just because it has Raquel and a great battle system. But it also has little in common with the rest of the series. Save for some outfit designs it doesn't even have the series trademark western theme. Still, you said you gave up on 3 and I can say it's easily the worst of the games so you may like 1 and 2. I'd say remake over 1 myself. The original's battle system moves kinda slow and as a first gen PS game it looks absolutely hideous.

Shrek 3 also. I guess a unenthuthiastic 'watchable' sums it up. I don't regret time spent watching it, but nor do I think I'd have really missed much if I had passed on it. Certainly nowhere as good as the first two, though I figured it wouldn't be going into it.
747  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Japanese RPGs you've spent the most time on? on: June 07, 2007, 07:49:45 AM
MMO's asside Ye Olde Phantasy Star and Final Fantasy IV are the two I've probably played the most, just via replaying them over and over. Damn kids today and their huge backlogs. In my day we had to play the same rpg over and over ago. In the snow. Without any electricity.

In the post snes world I'd say dark cloud 2 comes next. It's charming, it's fun, it's a time sink and I've never actually beaten it. I'd get distracted and stop playing it and then play it again a few months later and start from scratch.

As for #hours in a single playthrough I couldn't really tell you. I tend to leave the game going and wander off. Going shopping, going online, taking a nap, it all makes the numbers inaccurate :P
748  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Gold farming in WoW. on: June 05, 2007, 03:50:07 PM
(You'll need a means to breath underwater for this.)

 There's a lake northeast of shattrath filled with eels that drop motes of water. Between motes and npced greys and greens I manage 50-90 gold in a half hour(Though granted usually closer to 50). I get responses from the guild that they've had terribe drop rates in my spot and that I'd have better luck with the water elementals in nagrand, but when I tried there I had the opposite results. Maybe it's kill speed that puts it ahead. The eels are just 62 and they have low health even for their level. Or maybe the nagrand is better and I've just had bad luck(Or maybe I was at the wrong spot, more than one place to find water elementals there). Regardless you can try either of those, but if you want to try my spot don't go during peak hours. If you go peak hours they'll be other people there and if you don't have it to yourself you may as well go somewhere else.

 Playing the AH can make you some side money as well.

 Whatever you do though, don't expect it to be quick. Even if you can find a spot with 200g/hour you're still looking at 20 hours of work to get one.

Really, just calling him 'That black guy' would come off as poor taste, so the white folks just decided he was Hatian. In truth though, he's from California. The Californian.
750  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Tales of Legendia on: June 01, 2007, 03:17:02 PM
Legendia was sub par for the main game, but it got REALLY bad in the epilouge. I actually liked some of the character rap ups, but just running through the same old dungeons fighting monsters that just flat out have too much hp relative to the damage you can put out was extremely frustrating. It didn't make battles hard, just way longer than they should be for what's supposed to be a fast paced battle system.
