781  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Ragnarok Online Forever :)... on: December 21, 2006, 03:41:48 AM
Getting away from whatever the original post was, RO had such potential. Fun at first, but they never really did anything with the game or fixed a few balance issues(Took WAY too long to rest to full). Had a great sprite based feel too it and catchy music though.

it had to keep pushing it.


I remember a old episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. There was a random joke based on umpire sounding like vampire. Nothing hillarious, but it might give you a light smile. Or it might not. Regardless it was a one liner that took 2 seconds.

Mad TV did the same joke, I guess not knowing the show they were doing a parody of already did it themselves. Went on for five fucking minutes.


The only decent sketch type show I've seen is Robot Chicken(Not live action, but same basic deal). It's not just good because it's got good writters, Mad TV or saturday night live could have good writters and still suck. It's good because it's SHORT. The problem with sketch shows is they have too much time to fill. They kill themselves extending jokes for time and, even worst, by having recurring characters.

I wanted it to be funny, but the laugh track killed it for me.
784  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / World of Warcraft OH MY GOD CURRENT EVENTS THREAD on: December 18, 2006, 05:30:05 AM
Went affliction spec on my 35 warlock to test the waters. I really, really miss improved voidwalker. Having just gotten out of the FFXI 'one enemy at a time' habbit I'd send VW in, lay the dots, and then fear kite/dot a second mob while VW finished off the first.(And then send him on a third mob since his usually died first) The main idea going affliction was to support this style since..well, it's more fun.

With a new dot in siphon life and the lack of a 30% stronger taunt the first mob just comes to kill me before the VW takes him out :P And while being attacked is managable my health is my mana and fighting multiple enemies at once is already costs a lot more than one at a time. I'll probably end up going xx/08/00 for imp.voidwalker soon(Or at 38 so I don't lose siphon life), despite the annoying fact I'll always be 8 levels behind where I could be on the affliction tree.

Looking at what I HAVE and not what I've lost though, the tree is filled with awesome.



I also got a enchanted gold bloodrobe. It's hot and now the orc chicks can't get enough of me.

No anime intro?


They took away the usual good music that goes with the opening too. I can't say it's not trying, it's just not working.

I was hoping Square Enix could develop an original title for PSP.


Don't be silly, people don't make original titles for the PSP.

I had the same problem when I first played. I got stuck at the Riovanes castle battle and I saved between the first and second battles, so I was screwed and had to start over because Ramza was too weak to fight that battle alone.


Same here. Pretty big flaw in a otherwise great game not putting you on the map to save there. If you didn't go after the right skills or did some side leveling then you're pretty much fucked.

I think I did read one thing where you could basically run around him  out of his range without being attacked and use Ramza's speed boost repeatedly and then fight him so he doesn't get any turns since you're so fast. That's probably not something one's likely to come up with themselves though on their first playthrough when they're stuck.
787  The Rest / General Discussions / Sony's new viral marketing campaign bit them back hard. on: December 14, 2006, 12:39:52 AM
This has been getting around. The 'unfounded conspiricy theorist' in me can't help but thinking it's a fake, fake blog. Like either people made it just to go around saying sony made it or sony DID make it and leaked that it was fake themselves with a 'no such thing as bad publicity' mindset.
788  The Rest / General Discussions / Nintendo sued on: December 10, 2006, 11:11:59 PM
All nintendo has to do is pull out a twenty year old light gun to win the case.
789  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / WoW 2.0: THE AFTERMATH =^.^= on: December 06, 2006, 11:29:12 AM
Pet scaling was pretty nice. At 29 my voidwalker went from 900ish hp to 1500(Then just under 1800 after deciding to spec demonology) and gained about 500 armor. He's also doing damage in the thirties instead of teens, which isn't huge, but it DOES help with hate. His mana doubled too so I'm a lot less likely to have to wait for him after extended fighting when he doesn't have enough to torment.

 Succubus didn't gain as big a damage boost as VW, but her armor/hp puts her almost, but not quite, where the vw was prepatch defensively.

 My imp has 600 hp instead of 200, but is otherwise weaker. Never get to use him so I took points out of imp. imp and imp. firebolt. Chaingun firebolts were awesome though.

 All the demons have new vocal lines too. Sometimes though it seems they'll start a old line and then use a new one.

 For all the new fancy talents, I can't use any except demonic aegis and I'm going to pass on that one for now.

I'm liking the world itself better visually then FFXI's. The characters themselves aren't as good as a whole(Dig gnomes though) and while you've got more customization with the camera zoomed out some of these finer details are lost.

 Plus, no catgirls :P
791  The Rest / General Discussions / No Castlevania for the Wii.....well....the remote at least. on: November 23, 2006, 10:11:57 AM
It'd be great if they go third party support, but I just don't see it happening. They've been a failure as far as consoles go since the 16 bit era ended. You buy their consoles to play zelda and a few other in house stuff and that's it, and this time they don't even have that going for them since for some odd reason they made the latest zelda a gamecube game and just ported it.

 Sony's been getting a lot of hate for high ps3 prices and just being dicks in general and they kind of make you WANT for nintendo to make a big comeback and crush them, but they just don't have it in them.

 More on topic, konami can't make a great 3D castlevania anyway. They managed 'good' with curse of darkness, but nothing exceptional like the 2D games. I'd love to see them TRY to make a 2D console game, especially after playing valkyrie profile 2. Obviously a completely different type of game except for the sidescrolling, but god it looked so damn gorgeous and put ideas in my head about how a awesome a 2d castlevania could be. But it seems like konami feels they just can't make a game like that on a console these days so the DS is going to be where the castlevania goodness stays.



*-Yeah, probably using '2D' improperly. You know what I mean.
792  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Blizzard nerfed blood elf females :( on: November 18, 2006, 10:37:30 PM
My only complaint is I can't choose one at this point in time so I end up with a ugly orc warlock instead of a hot elf :P
793  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Thinking I'll finally give wow a try.. on: November 17, 2006, 11:26:11 AM
Started up on Norgannon with a orc named Kahtar, because after staring at the character creation screen with nothing but blanks figured Orcs should have names that sound klingon :P

 Decided against my usual melee fair and made a warlock. Level 7 running around newblet town with my imp. Probably be back on later in the evening.

Which leaves the question, where are you people?
795  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Final Fantasy XII on: November 15, 2006, 03:50:55 AM
I beat the white chocobo first time I tried in my 30s, but mostly just because he likes to run away for no reason and let me recover. I did think I was screwed when he got low health

Code:
and went phyical immune since every spell I threw at him healed him. Found out bio worked fortunantly and sloooowly wore him down casting it on the rare occasions I wasn't busy just strugling to stay alive.


Tough as hell fight.
