This is marginally game related.

I got in some weird argument with some RPGamer dude about WA1 v. WA: ACF. My point was that I didn't like ACF as much because it dropped a lot from the original, namely having fewer fast draws and getting rid of the second tier spells. Then the guy started arguing me that it didn't.

What the hell? ACF has fewer spells and fast draws. This isn't an arguable point. Whether or not making most of the new content very late game was a good idea is an arguable point. Whether or not the personal skills being added was a good idea is an arguable point. But not which game had more spells and fast draws, dammit.

Teddie is an idiotic character who felt to me as a fanservice, just another contribution to ero doujins.

Wait. People write erotic porn about giant plush bears?


Wait. Of course they do. What was I thinking.

When it comes to jrpgs SMT's writing is second to none.

Yyyyeah pretty much.

Anyway, I'm kinda surprised that Strange Journey has animated demons. It looked like they were reusing a lot of resources from Devil Survivor, like they do with a lot of their games (which I'm fine with since it means stuff gets released in reasonable damn periods of time), but I guess not. And Strange Journey is *pretty* and it damn well better come out here.

Gay Yuri is my hero you shut up :(

I read a plot synopsis for uh... Tales of the World 3, I think, and it sounded really retarded.

Frio and Kyaro, two teenagers, love the Tales legends and read about them every day before they go to sleep. After an earthquake, Dr. Brown finds an ancient time traveling machine in the ruins. Using this, they can go see the Tales legends. They go to sleep and prepare for tomorrow. Before Frio went to sleep, he read a Tales legend again. But this one ended strangely: the hero arrives too late and the world is destroyed.

Bullshit. Real teenagers don't read Tales fanfics before going to sleep. Real teenagers furiously masturbate to Tales fanfics before going to sleep. This is not canon with reality! FUUUUUUUUUuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu--

So I started playing tales */*/*/*/*/ Radical Dreamers, because I want to do this write up analyzing the themes in Chrono Cross, and I feel that I should play RD to get a better background in that. It's... actually pretty neat and atmospheric though the translation is a little rough.

Just beat the second real boss in WA1. Fun game. I wish summons in FF8 worked like they do in WA1, with having a touch of a charge time and the like.

I like how in most oldschool JRPGs stat-dropping attacks don't work on bosses, and then in WA1, they ONLY work on bosses.

Psycho crack doesn't seem to confuse bosses though :<

stuff about component cables, resolution, etc...

I got my current TV sometime in the late 90's, and it only has RF hookups. It's also small.

Star ocean 2. It's funny when you're so underlevelled that you like level up every other fight.

FFT? I take your FFT and raise you a Breath of Fire 2.

(Also, if you want some awesomely bad translations, look for English translations of Russian games).
6354  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Wild Arms 2 on PSN on: July 25, 2009, 05:43:28 PM
I've seen worse translations. Far worse. Far, far worse.

It's not based on it, but Titans of Steel: warring suns seems like it pretty much rips it off lock, stock, and barrol.

Play Sim City, pretend buildings are turgid manparts, unleash tornadoes, pretend they're 11-year-olds in a blowjob factory.

Sansa Clip has the advantage of being pretty much the only player in that price/size bracket that, like, has a screen and good audio quality. Ipod's comparably priced thing is, what, the shuffle? And no proprietary software to fuck with YOOOOOOOOOOUuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.

Apparently Sansa's older models are totally worthless, though, and I'm not sure how the Fuze and View are. As I said, it's intended to be a very good, more inexpensive player -- which it is and does a good job at being, admirably. It's not an alternative to a current gen Regular Sized iPod or a Zune. It's for people like me, who are totally bothered by this newfangled technologickery (despite being a comp sci major) but still need music to ease the pain of their soul crushing jobs because meth isn't allowed at work.

WA1 had a pretty good story I thought. Normal WA1. Not ACF.

WA2 suffered from not being as concise as WA1 and also it had a really inconsistent tone and it was like, super anime-ish, but uh... 90's anime. WA1 was more like a 70's anime.

WA1's main problem is that it has a highish encounter rate and non-boss battles aren't particularly fun, but that's pretty much every RPG ever.

WA2's inconsistent tone is like... well Lilka's prologue boss is a potato monster, basically. And WA1 had a somewhat betterish translation. WA2's other main problem is that the addition of Personal Skills doesn't really work out that well because they're mostly useless. It's still fun as hell though.

Goddammit Gen mentioned that Oakage sumbitch in somewhere and i was like "fuck dawg i think i wants me this" and now i can't find this.

is this going to be some motherfucking pikmin 2 or gradius 5 bullshit where i spend a year looking for it then end up finding it in like St. Mary's or at that weird little exit by Findlay?

Though the cool part about living in rural ohio means that if i go to a gamestop they have like 30 copes of P3: FES for 10 bucks becuase nobody games here.

So apparently Armor Down works in WA1, just not on normal enemies in the early game because their defense is near nothing anyway.

And SO2 is kicking me !! literally it grew f No I'm not going there I mean that metaphorically. I'm in the POWER FIELD and it's like really hard. Stuff is done kill me good :( Also I'm trying to level up Noel to make him into an ITEM MAKER since he's not good at combatsing.
