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.

Some of those African models look really sexy with bald heads.

Black people are just hot in general. Especially Dincrest.

FFL3 is way better than FF3 maybe your parents just have good taste and you didn't know it because you'd be like "what my mom and dad are cool NO WAY" and then they fly out on skateboards, jammin' some Lunchables.

DDS1's still only like 25 hours long, though.

Anyway, I played Front Mission DS a bit. Unless I'm missing something, it looks like there's no point in using any parts other than the best available at every town, since, at least as far as body parts go, it's pretty much always more cash == more HP, Def, and Weight capacity. There's not a whole lot of tradeoffs yet from what I've seen.

Actually it's apparently only 20% of the dialogue and depending on your tastes the rewrites might be good from what I've read. It... ends up a lot more serious.

On the other hand, seriously missing puzzles is bad, but it might just be missing puzzle alternative SOLUTIONS, but even then I can't get any info here.

And the background music was removed.

But yeah, ScummVM didn't work for me, probably because that'd void what copy protection the Steam version offers

It's not the copy protection actually. It's some data file weirdness.
6474  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: LucasArts arrives on Steam with graphic adventures! on: July 10, 2009, 03:18:27 PM
The Steam version doesn't work with ScummVM AFAIK.

---edit---

And the Steam version is the CD Rom version which apparent;y had half the dialogue and puzzles cut in order to fit voice acting in. Nevermind. Not buying it anyway.

Yeah and then you learn that Fei's manparts got burnt off by Elly's lasernipples when they had sex on the Yggdrasil, too.

And Krelians as well, for some rea--

Waaaaait.

Elly, you whore :3

I usually hit the burnout point at around 13 hours, unless I really love the game. It happens like clockwork. And if I don't get burnt out at 13 hours, I get burnt out at 25.

I guess it's because DDS is more of a grind than Personas 3 and 4.

DDS shouldn't require any grinding at all, unless you're constantly trying to max out your skill chakra thingies as soon as you get them, which isn't really necessary. It's a pretty short game, too. None of the bosses should require any grinding, though. It's not a particularly difficult game.

Anyway, doing more stuff in Torment. This is the only game I really feel like playing anymore.
6478  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: How long is looooooooooooooong? on: July 10, 2009, 10:25:52 AM
It doesn't matter to me. I generally stop playing games at around the 20-30 hour mark. With most JRPGs that's more than enough to really see everything the game has to offer.
6479  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: PSX vs PS2 rpg lineup on: July 10, 2009, 02:27:44 AM
Older games are more instant gratification. Chrono Trigger's target audience can't be much older than 15 or something. Gotta keep the attention span going. You get a modern RPG like Oblivion and that requires a lot of time to get anything rewarding from it except not really because it's shit anyway and I guess because it's targetted at 30 year olds is basically why it plays with CSPAN with more castrated flaming vampire corpses nailed to the wall.

I really wish I had an imagination though. I don't even daydream much anymore.

It's not really a big deal though. Lots of people have uninteresting ideas.

Older games might have the magic touch but I think they're shit. I swear to God it's like every time I replay an old favorite I end up hating it. And I can either try to relive that nostalgia -- recapture that nostalgia, and maybe in the process I'll ruin it, but... you know, I see zeitgeists in the sound of the windchimes in Lumina in Legend of Mana or in the music from Zeal or the opening animation for Wild ARMs and... and what?

What's the point of memories if they're just dark maps that don't lead anywhere you can ever get back to?
