Anyways, as interesting as it is to see those filters applied I'd really prefer to play a game the way it was intended or close enough.

Yeah, like those Steam-based Lucasarts game that came out last week and they have filters on them and it makes them look really, really bad.

Also, depending on your viewpoint, Bleem being reverse-engineered entirely might be seen as even worse. I seriously doubt that a "BIOS piracy" court would hold up in case, given that Bleem won Sony's lawsuit against it, and it was a for-profit program too.

That being said, I AM surprised nobody else has tried writing their own PSX BIOSes, from what I can tell.

Why the heck is FFIX embossed and bloom'd?

Gale's pretty neat if you listen to it by itself. Completely inappropriate as battle music, though.

It really shouldn't be that hard to modify CC to play something else instead...

Hm... Replace it with... Predicament, maybe...

I also kind of have my own weird interpretation of CC's plot/themes that I really need to type up sometime to submit somewhere so that everyone can inevitably tl;dr it. Basically though I think that the Time Devourer stuff is mostly just a MacGuffin and that the thing's really about focusing more on the accidental themes of saudade and regret that came up towards the end of CT.

I almost saved her in my first attempt, but some fucking asshole came out of nowhere and Binded my whole party, and I couldn't make it to her in time. :P Gonna do a second attempt after I do some fusing. I actually haven't fused anything yet. >.>

Haru isn't that hard, especially since she stays put. You just need to get up there. Also the demons will go after your party, or at least they should. Anyway I'd say having one or two demons with dark wave is absolutely necessary, along with someone with devotion and someone with flight or an equivalent far-moving skill. Put the healers in with your distance guys. The dark wave-equiped party won't need it :P

There are people who don’t like the music in Chrono Cross?

Prime Mover.

I think my favorite, recentish non-SMT JRPG is Yume Nikki.

Hey look, RPGFan is in his wall of shame

Well in all fairness you guys do kinda suck >:T

Okay if you use ePSXe -- preferably as legally as possible. You know. Running your own goddamn discs. Don't go steal shit ya damn kids -- it's going to be on your computer which means that at least you've got some degree of antialiasing, which neither the PSX or PS2 really do.

The biggest difference though is that you can get some games working at a decent speed. King's Field, for instance, is slow as *balls* on a real PSX. Also save states, which make Persona 1 a far, far different, and a far, far more enjoyable experience.

NO JUST FEI AND CITAN GET THAT SHIT OUT OF HERE.

Actually in all seriouness I think Billy's whoring-himself-out-to-pay-for-his-sister-itude WAS pretty mature on Square's part.

I think one of the biggest problems in WRPGs is their tendency to be "WOOHOO! LESBIANS!" and "Eww! Gay males!" I know in Fallout 2, for instance, you can have female gay relationships if your character is a woman, but not gay male relationships if your character is a male. I think Arcanum did the same.

Billy wasn't exactly gay, because he wasn't selling himeself out because he *enjoyed* it, but the entire thing is presented in  a pretty mature fashion.

Same with Kim and Elly's infertility issues.

Did Fei have sex with Chu Chu?

Well, I can tell you that he WASN'T having sex with Citan, much to my chagrins and the chagrins of everyone else out there in TV land.

Oh the acidtrip maze. Yeah, those are neat. There's a couple of them.

By the way. When you get to an area, in a little bit, that's sort of dark and foggy -- it's in the second city you go to -- make sure you bring a demon that has light up, and that you use it as soon as you get into the dark and foggy area.

Why?

Just trust me on this one :<

Anyway, beat that one mission in FM1 with the SAMs. Finally. Still trying to figure out what a good tradeoff between defenseness and speed is. I guess lighter mechs move faster, so I MIGHT want to remove missile launchers from some people, or switch over to those Missile Launcher Arms. It looks like the current mission is one where I'd benefit from being an immobile wall of bullets though.

---edit---

Also playing the uh, GBC version of Devil Children for comparison... it's a lot... drearier. The music and the colors are really washed out. The remakes were cuted up a lot I guess.

The remake has some added hidden things though :T

DF had some great aesthetics though. Loved the music. Always thought it looked really nice (for the most part). Just... not fun :(

Devil Summoner 2: At about 5 hours.  The last area I went through was already better than virtually any other area that's ever been done in SMT.  Hoping there's another one like it later...

Which area? I must admit I sort of stopped playing DS2 when work started and ten hour shifts made me tired as hell and i pretty much only had energy for like, playing Korg DS-10. Now that it's July I'm more acclimated. I should get back to DS2. That's on my list of three games to finish this summer.

I wish it had more hundred demon fights. I don't know if there are more later on or what. Something like that would've been horrible in DS1. In DS2 it's like eating fireworks and kaleidescopes.

Anyway, continuing on in the ice area in Devil Children. Demons will rape you if you let them. Also, I stumbled upon some hidden demon in, uh, a house. It's like a raccoon with wings, in an iron lung. And I got a fusion accident. A rather beneficial one. My demons still kind of suck but not AS much.

Also with Torment, like... in the Clerk's Ward. Trying to decide if I'd rather join the Godsmen or the Sensates.

Played Riviera and Front Mission 1 a bit. On the porch :>

DDS1, at least, and especially early on, has save points every other room practically, so you can really break stuff up. I should probably finish DDS2 sometime but I dunno if it'd still hold up for me.

Anyway I started up a game in Devil Children: Black Book. I have the PSX remake because it was on ebay years ago when I got it. The problem is that it actually uses kanji, which I can't read, making figuring out what certain menu thingies do a pain. Also the GBC version kind of looks better IDKmybffjill.

Remember. In Xenogears,

Code:
most of the characters are either Fei or Fei's mom.

Fei is Fei.
Lacan is Fei.
That other Fei is Fei.
Grahf is Fei (and maybe Lacan?)
Fei's dad is Fei.
Wiseman is Fei's Dad, and thus Fei.
Elly is Fei's Mom.
Sophia is Fei's Mom.
Miang is sort of Fei's mom or rather Fei's Mom was a Miang.
Ramsus is a clone of Fei.
Cain and Abel are both Fei, somehow.

And they're all constantly having sex.

Quest for Glory 2 VGA, because it's freeware and I have to whore it out constantly.
