796  The Rest / General Discussions / Games Radar: Top 7 series run into the ground. on: January 27, 2007, 04:45:12 PM
There's TONS of reasons to not like the mega man series anymore. The two things that killed it for me personally though? One was playing through one of the games and collecting all the boss weapons...and they were all absolutely worthless. Niether effective or fun to use. Stealing boss powers was the best part of mega man games and nothing they gave me could compare to the dinky pea shooter.

 The second thing was Zero. He's awesome and a badass. And a spotlight stealer. Never should have been a fully fleshed out selectable character, instead he should have got his own series sooner then he did.

 Tenchu I don't think was ran into the ground so much as people just lost interest. Played one and two, and while you see obvious flaws, they were fun. 3 was enjoyable, but it was starting to get old. Then whenever I hear a new one's out I just don't really have any motivation to play it.

 Last sonic game I played was the dreamcast one. Just didn't make the conversion to 3D well, though I'm biased against 3D platformers. Mario 64 wowed me. Then everything else just felt boring(I couldn't even get into psychonauts which everyone raved about. I liked the whole feel of the game...just not the game itself). Of course I don't have to have played shadow to laugh at how absolutely horrible the more 'xtreme' sonic concept is.

Tomb raider just gets a 'Wow they're STILL making those?' whenever another gets anounced. I mean, how can you kill a series nobody has played for ten years?

Now we just need midi's set to auto play embeded in people's sigs.

 The fact that the board shows 15 posts instead of one at a time will make it even better than before!
798  The Rest / General Discussions / Old School Avatar Month on: January 25, 2007, 08:15:46 AM
This and some Phantasy Star 4 ones were the oldest I could find. I accidentally made it too fast, only to find out it was better that way. My all time favorite which I wanted to use in december-Super Metroids Ridley with a MSpaint santa hat is sadly long deleted ; ;

 I suppose there's some old cowboy bebob avatars too. But CN replayed that so many times that even the most diehard fan stopped caring about it long ago. Well, everything except the soundtrack anyway. I'm going to go listen to Yoko Kanno now :P

 Anyway, send in the Sephiroths.
799  Media / Single-Player RPGs / XenoSaga series: Need advice. on: January 21, 2007, 09:21:06 PM
XSIII was great. Not only were they forced to moved the pace of the plot up to a better level, they also decided 'hey, let's make this one actually fun to play'.
800  The Rest / General Discussions / interesting article on american vs japanese games. on: January 21, 2007, 12:39:56 PM
motion sickness

There used to be so many games I didn't get to enjoy..or got to enjoy, but regreted it later in the 90s because of motion sickness. Fortunantly though as technology got better it stoped. Once games started to be more fluid with less framerate issues it stopped being a problem.

 Half life I could play for hours. Doom, made me want to puke. In retrospect I wonder if it was motion sickness :P
801  The Rest / General Discussions / Foreign languages. on: January 10, 2007, 12:04:23 PM
I've just took a random adult education course in Japanese on a random impulse a few years ago. I really enjoyed it, and given the difficulty of the language that should tell you how little was actually taught. And even most of that's been forgoten and I'm back down to the 'Zomg kawaii neko-chan sugoi! =^_^= ' internet level Japanese.
802  Media / Single-Player RPGs / "knights do it two handed" on: January 08, 2007, 08:27:34 PM
Yeah, it'd suck if pop culture references ruined a rich and complex story like FFV's.

ZOMG evil tree!
803  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Blizzard bans 100,000+ for cheating/gold farming on: January 01, 2007, 04:45:51 PM
Unfortunately, it's a case of though it looks impressive on paper, in reality it doesn't do a whole lot.

Well, they can't stop them, but FFXI proved that effort needs to be maintained to keep them in check. SE's attitude was that if they banned a gil seller they'd just make a new account so there was no point, but then the RMT seriously fucked over the economy about a year ago. They sold so much gil for so cheap that only the gilbuyers could buy the big items as paying more wasn't a issue for them. So SE started targeting the RMT mules so they didn't have enough to sell and it helped.

While the economy in WoW doesn't seem to have the large FFXI flaw of it being to damn hard to make money that drove people to buy gil in the first place they should still do everything to make it as hard on the RMT as possible. Banning accounts and filtering website names is a good move.
804  Media / Single-Player RPGs / the first couple hours in midgar on: December 31, 2006, 09:38:37 PM
I still remember what I was thinking leaving midgar. 'What the hell?'. I mean, leaving the city eventually is a must, but after all the talk of the planet dying you walk ten damn feet and it's sunny green fields.

 If I'm on a near dead planet I need to SEE that. Just taking Barret's word for it isn't the same thing.
805  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Ps3 Rpg outlook? on: December 28, 2006, 11:47:48 PM
I imagine PS3 will be THE system for console style rpgs just like the PS2 was. The Japanese developers aren't going to start making the xbox their favored system as it's not popular in Japan and it's unlikely that they'll go for the wii just because it's been 10 years since nintendo has been a serious competitor.(Outside hand helds that is, where they absolutely dominate.)

 I don't like it. Charging people $600 I WANT the PS3 to fail so that I don't need to buy one. But unless microsoft buys SE or nintendo really shows they can compete then the games that I want to play are going to end up being on the PS3.
806  The Rest / General Discussions / Swag thread on: December 25, 2006, 04:58:06 AM
Apparently I'm hard to shop for.

$75 total, from a few different people.
807  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Disgaea 2 on: December 24, 2006, 11:25:25 PM
I enjoyed the first game a lot, but for some reason I had no interest in this when it came out.

It's the same for me. Disgaea 1 was AWESOME. And guess it was so satisfying that I just I got my fill of it. I tried a few NIS games after it, but they just couldn't duplicate the feeling I got playing disgaea.

 Even if 2 matches the original I still don't really have a desire to play it. Which I myself find odd. If something is awesome I'd think that I'd want more of it. That's the case with other games as well things outside gaming. But not with disgaea. And I don't think I'm the only one either. Disgaea was pretty damn huge, not mainstream wise, but within the whole rpger circle it came out of nowhere and knocked everyone off their feet. The followup strategy games didn't.

 I guess they just made the first one TOO good or something.
808  The Rest / General Discussions / Forbes: Gaming's Last Hurrah (As We Know It) on: December 22, 2006, 11:10:23 PM
I don't think it all has to be MMORPG's though nessasarily. Shooters, racers, sports etc. could all hypothetically go that way. They'd have to be ONLY pay to play though with no upfront cost though or I'm not sure people would go for it.(With a few exceptions perhaps if something is BIG, but not really as a whole)

It's still apples and oranges though. You can't have as structured a game online as you can in a single player game. On the other hand playing with actual people just can't be duplicated. They've each got their own things that make them good. I'm sure online games will become more popular, but they aren't going to replace single player games.
809  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Transformers Trailer. on: December 22, 2006, 05:24:44 PM
Honestly the dark and serious tone seems a bit much to me for a movie about cars that turn into robots and blow stuff up. It should be more serious than the cartoon, but if it's overdone and tries to be more then it is I'm going to be insulted rather than entertained.

 It IS just a teaser trailer though, and trailers love to exagerate so we'll have to see.
810  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.
