This kicks the crap out of the album version, especially the last minute and a half.

Yeah, pretty much. They should've gone with the long version for the album and, I don't know, dropped Sugar Daddy or something.

Anyway, my current song of the moment is Wayne Coyne's penis.

I mean Flaming Heads - Watching the Planets.

... Lips. Flaming Lips.

Which are also in the video although they're less "flaming" and more "undulating" and "birthing."

I'd liked to be ironic and say the book was better except I seriously fucking hated that thing.

Anyway still not seeing how this is supposed to be different from any other generic dark-and-edgy hack 'n slash game?

Speaking of books written by dead Europeans, though, I demand an RPG based on Dead Souls or maybe A Hero For Our Times. Preferably not written by Eastern Europeans. They tend to make some very fucked up RPGs.

The Mysterious Island? I haven't played it yet, I probably will at some point. Is it terrible?

I don't know. The first part involves going through about 10 or so random events, most of which kill you. And they kill you randomly. I never got beyond it.

Okay seriously, this is a web forum. Would it kill you to type full words?

Which just tells me that FFXII would have been a lot better if they had manned up and removed the fucking stupid menu system, and just made in an Action RPG.

*sigh*

Yeeeeeeeeeeah :/ What's sad is that it ALMOST plays like that when it's just Vaan, and then you get a party and it's like...

Does anyone have a backup of the site circa 1999/2000 when it had that giant banner with the random videogame and anime characters in it.

Bethesda's games are full of filler, though. It's not just sidequests. It's travel time and shit like that which maybe Oblivion mitigated by its fast-travel thing, but still, mostly filler. I tend to think ideal game length is a roughly cubic function ranging from 0, being least ideal, to about 30, which is most ideal, dipping to another low point at 60-70, and then rising against as it approaches some asymptote of around 200 hours, let's say. Reason being is that once you get to a certain length the game necessitates a different play style and becomes digestible again, whereas a 70 hour game is still probably going to be one huge irritating glob of game.

Huh, dink smallwood. Haven't played that in a gazill.

Did anyone ever find that weird semi-sequel adventure playable at all?

Ragnarok:

1. Weird death. I read a scroll and my dude turned into an "ivy creeper." I get the message "you may never die..." and the game ended.

2. The blue wheel fuckers are evil.

3. So are bears.

I meant the original FF:CC. That had combos?

Gen, it's not ragnarok online. It's a goddamn DOS roguelike from 1992.

>:C

More Ragnarok. Was doing pretty well till I got some weird teleport curse and destroyed my sword. Which was -1 at that point. Balls. Then a berserker killed me.

Anyway gen you should play this game you'd like it:

Therefore, it is quite possible to begin the game as a male sage, and end the game as a lycanthropic female Fire Giant conjurer with 14 fingers, 3 eyes, and the ability to form giant paper whales using origami.

I'd actually kill for a Devil Summoner game set in feudal Japan. :P

That'd work, actually.

Oh wait I should've done a WHERE'S MY BLANK DAMMIT for an english release of the original Devil Children games, which were actually good and probably the most stylistically similar games to FFL2 I ever played.

I didn't have as much of an issue with XG's ground battles as I did with its mech battles. After learning how to spam that chick's beams, it was pretty smooth sailing, but otherwise it was very clunky.

Well I mean, in the sense that LoL had an actual combo system whereas XG's was more like a fancy menu system for picking attacks, and LoL had, uh, that thing where flying or short enemies were impervious to high or low kicks (which SH:C later had!), or various other nifty details.

The real crime of XG's gear battles is not having compartmentalized damage like Metal Saga or Front Mission. I mean, what if you could've blown off an enemy gear's ARMS or something to disable it?

Then again I think XG would've made a lot more sense as a linear strategy RPG anyway. You can't put FUCKING PLATFORMING BITS in a strategy game.

Ragnarok Online?

No. http://members.chello.at/theodor.lauppert/games/ragnarok.htm

Anyway I was gonna play that but I got distracted and starting making a game in game maker where you play as a shark dong and have to impregnate sharks and the basic mechanics come from Ikaruga. Also I have the munchies.

I think that plant I bought was sprayed with somethin' funny.

Also I seriously wish I was making that up. I need to get a life.

(if you're curious, it should be done by wednesday).

--- edit---

Actually did play Ragnarok some. Kept dying. Mostly from bears.
