KillerAmore got me wanting to play DQ7 so I did for a little. I'm, uh, in Probina. Everyone in my party is currently level 19. Yes.

kyuusei, me being me, you might want to take this with a grain of caveat emptor, but Persona 1 was my favorite Persona game (in spite of some issues, such as the dungeon designs... um... not... not being particularly great). By and large I liked 1 and 3 more than 2, as 2 didn't feel, to me, like it had the same clarity of vision that P1 or P3 had.

Wizardry 8's a bajillion times better on easy mode.

In all seriousness this stuff does... bother me. As I mentioned in the My Life Sucks thread, my coworkers were all... rather insane neocons, who think Acorn's a secret police organization, that Obama's an outright socialist, and various other stupid shit I thankfully seem to have finally forgotten.

See, there's always going to be those quasi-militant survivalists out there, who like to collect guns and put on uniforms and pretend they're the real Americans defending America from whatever the hell. And occasionally shit like Ruby Ridge goes down. But I do tend to believe that the average... whatever you'd call these folks... is too fatassed and lazy to do anything.

I've gotten a lot more sympathetic to Bush since this stuff's been going on. People gave him a lot of shit and now I don't know if he really deserved it. I mean, I've heard people say that Bush needed to die. But I mean... no, that's horrible, don't think that shit. Sure, he fucked up in a lot of ways and maybe did deserve a lot of what he got, but when it's to the point that you're saying you want him dead or you're attributing all sorts of crazy shit and conspiracy theories to him... That's not any better than what people are doing now.

I just don't remember stuff being like this during the Clinton years. I was too young, I guess, but...

Let's apply math!

1. There is a God.
2. Ancient people worshiped this god.
3. Ancient people characterized this god as male.
4. Males have penises.
-----------
1. Based on the assumption that God is male and that males have penises, and that both of these assumptions are tautologically sound, then it follows that God has a penis.
2. Based on the assumption that ancient people thought about god's gender, we can also assume that they thought about what this entailed -- that is, that god has a penis.
3. Based on points 1 and 2, we can assume that ancient people thought about God's penis.
4. Based on assumption 3, we can assume that rule 34 is older than dirt.

COLLEGE HAS TURNED ME INTO THIS!!!! WOOOOOAARGH

Not a game but tiles for a sidescroller I should make to learn XNA or game maker or something.

I don't know this doesn't sound that interesting. It sounds like it's just a fairly bog standard RPG with Studio Gihbli anim... Gibhli? Whatever. Animations. I'm not particularly big on either of those.

Yeah I mean, they could've taken the REALLY lazy route and just completely axed the party talk.

But I mean seriously who would EVER do something like that?

Wizardry 8 is still annoying even with a mod to like, speed up enemy movement. Combat STILL lasts forever because attack animations are slow and you whiff constantly and there's like a half second pause between enemies switching turns. It's not very involving or fun. Putting it in continuous combat mode works a bit, but... I'll try novice mode. If that doesn't make things smoother, I'm getting rid of this.

Also, Wizardry 7 had similar problems. First, it's very, very hard starting from level one. honestly, I probably spent five hours in that game and never actually got to the first town. Partially because enemies level with you. See, early on, you either need to get LUCKY to get past fights, or uh... you have to level up. Which isn't really hard to do since there's a little sidequest dungeon you can do (which still requires some levelling and luck to get through). Except the enemy leveling curve, compared to yours, is more or less linear. In most games with leveling enemies, you either A) enter a situation where their gains v. yours is more logarithmic. B) If not you DO gain more strategic options to deal with things (This does sort of work out for Wizardry 8).

* As an aside about that. In Saga Frontier it's possible to grind in such a way that enemies end up stronger than you if you're like, fighting enemies that don't give good stat advances although this isn't particularly problematic unless you're grinding too much. RS1-3 were a lot worse about this. Also apparently you can fail missions too much/waste too many turns in Unlimited Saga to get enemies to, uh, level past you, but I've never actually witnessed this and you pretty much have to be intentionally failing missions for it to happen. Also heard RS: Minstrel Song can do this but I've never seen enemies level up in that at all. I think Quest rank is just determining what quests you get.

In FFV8 I know it's pretty logarithmic since you gain stats from GFs whereas enemies just straight level up. You end up strong than them anyway (or should). I'm not sure how that bizarre thing Lunar did where bosses leveled with you worked.

It's not unintelligible. It's just the only game I've ever played that had comma ellipses.

(Admittedly I didn't really like anything else about the game once I got further into it and realized how absolutely broken it was, so maybe it gets better later on but uh, I think I got up to the point when you get Spar. That's pretty far in the game).

I think I'll give Wizardry 8 another shot on easy mode. I mean I don't like playing stuff on anything but normal, generally, but any regular combat is lasting like 20 minutes and completely decimating my party. Maybe I broke the game with some mod. I don't know. Also the enemies level with you.

I play Wizardry 8 for like, an hour and half, and successfully finished two encounters.

This game is shit. Why did I ever like it? Honestly. It's unplayably slow, individual battles can last well over ten minutes, status attacks work but don't seem to actually matter much, and more of your attacks miss than hit (whereas most of the enemy attacks hit).

Seriously. What the hell did I ever see in this game?

Never mind, I was wondering if you got to the point where this certain kid over narrates stuff and if you noticed it. :P

What... town was this in? I really don't remember it at all.

Hoshino I'm not sure what you're asking me but uh...

Seriously, what ARE you asking me :( What's wrong with the phrase "cold hard floor?"
