If only Tri-Ace and other JRPG developers could figure this out then we could avoid games like IU and SO4 where everyone has to talk like a J-soap star in a generic Sentai show.

Well to Sword's credit, at least it avoided the uncanny valley, implied pedophilia, and cat buggery.

It's freeware Quake 3, in your web-browser, with really bizarre in-map ads.

So run around with the bang-bang and the pew-pew and marvel at the crappy netcode and how there's like 30 maps and people only ever play on three of them.

A female spotted hyena.

(Also I heard gin's route was supposed to be really hard because of a boss rush or something?)

Like that time I made an erotic FFVIII mod for Tetris...

Been playing Devil Summoner 2, Devil Survivor, Wild Arms ACF and Red Faction Guerrilla. But, you know what I just thought of while playing Devil Survivor? What a fusion between Arioch and Mara would make.

Probably the last boss of Persona 1.

The lack of dialogue in FFA made all the stuff more emotional and whatever. Less is totally more sometimes.

Beat the Sky Dragon in CC. Took two tries because grobyc died the first time. Otherwise fairly easy. Dark Serge is coming up shortly. Dark Serge is NOT easy.

Sort of disappointed that there wasn't much in Another Gaea's Navel. Sort of expected Leah to get a level 7 tech there, though she learns that automatically at 35 stars. Wonder what her dialogue about making a decision was supposed to refer to.

Oh wait that refers to something from the ending. Lol.

Also did that De-Hydrate fight, and reloaded because I wasn't sure if you were supposed to do something else to like, revive the hydra marshes or something.

Code:
One time I wrote this fanfic about Tidus and he's like fifty and a woman and he's vividly describing his adventures at the gynecologist except I was ten back then and didn't know how to pronounced that right, so needless to say it kind of was like guy-nick-oh-LODGE-ist. And I thought it was related to the word vaginecology, which is the ecology of the vagina, which in a sense makes sense I mean if you're considering bacterial flora populations and what-what except back then I was ten and thought economy and ecology meant the same thing and needless to say I sent some SERIOUSLY embarrassing e-mails to Trevor Chan to the effect of wondering why certain resources were absent from Cap Plus.

Anyway I'm sure that if you DID establish an economy of vaginas it'd be prone to bubbles and busts just as well, and we'd still be in a huge recession right now. That's not really the point though. We'd probably be cloning them and burning them for fuel, and we'd still have pollution from that, and resultingly, ecologists -- vaginecologists -- would still be throwing a hissy fit. There is no clean form of energy hewn from the flesh of our fellow humans !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What is the point?

I'm not honestly sure.

Of course, if we can expand heroines to non-playable but somewhat important female characters, I think that the house master from The Longest Journey is up there. Thriving liberally on every pre-invented lesbian trope in ever, just hearing her talk is like, oh god lady shut up I do not care about your sex life with your creepy, mannish lesbian girlfriend.

Lesbians are not all plumbers or British. Lesbians can be BATMAN VILLAINS! And every time I realize that I listen to Seal - Kiss from a Rose, and swoon.

Oh my god that was the most retardedest thing I ever wrote in my life.

I have this thing against token lesbian characters in RPGs, especially when they just milk really, really overplayed lesbian tropes.

Anyway since KillerAmore mentioned it in another thread, that stupid goddamn heroin from Sword of Mana. Granted, she's more completely purposeless, and not as FUCKING RETARDED as the male lead (I WILL KILL YOU DARIUS! OH MY GOD I AM SO SORRY I KILLED YOU DARIUS!), but whatever story re...  relevance she had was sort of mangled and the attempts to give her MORE importance... ... didn't work.

And that whole dire, dire situation with what they did to Amanda. Eugh.

By the way, does Mei Lin from Terranigma count? She's not really a HEROINE per se -- not in the same way Elle is -- but she's still kind of annoying, especially during that clusterfuck called Dragoon's Castle.

Or Kira from Illusion of Gaia, except she's really intentionally annoying to show her growing out of it, which is... actually I felt thta worked.

Curses can be useful.

Hell if I can remember what for, though.
6401  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Laughing Scene from FFX on: August 17, 2009, 12:06:15 AM
As far as characters go, FFVIII's biggest problem is that outside of Rinoa and Squall, nobody fucking mattered at best and didn't even receive development past disk 1 at worst.  As a result of this you  barely see Squall and RInoa interacting with them.

And as a result of THAT, it's hard to imagine them interacting with ANYONE, let alone fall in love.

Tidus and Yuna are just more complete individuals.

(And Zidane, of course, would fall in love with a pulse and bobees).

---edit---

Actually, you know, in a sense FF:CC was sort of thematically in line with 9 and 10, or at least far, far moreso than 12 was.  Although I'm not really sure WHERE its story went because I... think I felt compelled to make 8 characters and level them all up which is all kinds of tedious. What's funny is that I got FFCC really shortly after finding out that I'd have to get my wisdom teeth taken out after all, and I still dread getting them taken out -- even though I already did, four years ago.

You could probably lump The Spirits Within in there too but seriously who wants to remember that ever happening.

QuakeLive: I'm doing better than I thought, but something feels off with this game. The weird-ass netcode and collision detection has been discussed elsewhere, but the physics ALSO seem light to me. It's like nothing has any body to it.
6403  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Laughing Scene from FFX on: August 16, 2009, 08:04:43 PM
Been playing FFX again lately. It's sort of like IX and X were the beginnings of an awesome ditch trilogy that never got its On The Beach.

I beat abaddon with Serph, too.

Except he hardly ever used Agi spells on me so wevz.
6405  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Super Game Journal Turbo II - The New Challengers on: August 15, 2009, 08:00:15 PM
Doing Gaia's Navel - Another in CC. There's still a bunch of other optional stuff I can do too. And I'm at 43 hours. Which is 10 hours longer than it took me to beat the game the first time.
