Yeah, but in that case, it's either the dev's fault for making the encounter too difficult/unbalanced, or the player's fault for not being good at the game.

That's a nose. Not a penis.

Also the latter pokemon games get some xenogears mindfuck going on or something, with like, god being a pokemon.

In the Wizardry 1 pc port I think you could even lose stats and hps on a level up...not sure if that was a bug or not though.

No, that was intentional, and based around what stats you used the least. It might not have been IN the Mac version, but it was definitely intentional.

Leon also has a decent attack, too. It's not a TON of damage but it's decent, and it's got like, rather good range.

That's an excellent question, which also applies to RPGs in general. What's the point of experience levels, except to make the player grind? If there's no grinding at all, what's the point of experience levels? In REALLY well balanced RPGs, you just tend to gain levels naturally, and experience level is somewhat decoupled from skill advancement today, too.

Get rid of experience points, replace with new levels gained from completing side-quests/certain events/boss battles. Tombs & Treasures meets CC. No more grinding.

I don't believe Ernest locks you out of Celine. You need Opera to get Ernest, so no Ashton, but getting Ernest just locks you out of either Leon/Dias, Chisato, or Noel, IIRC, and it's NOT LIKE THAT'S A HARD CHOICE.

Pokemon's like SMT, only instead of having penis monsters, you have... um.

FFIX:

Not a whole lot. Got Garnet's first summon. Did some synthesis. Got Quina back (^____________^)

IoG:

Finished the floating garden.

Anyway, game ID question. I seem to recall playing a game where you could get a picture of some area in the game via like, a fortune teller, and there'd be something important there once you figured out where this place was. Now, I know RS did this (whther or not the fortune teller meant anything is a different story of course) but I thought a few other games had similar features. Like perhaps Ookami? Any ideas?

I don't think the end of Donnie Darko was actually time travel but who knows.

Speaking of time travel, CT mostly just used it to deal with the history of the world. The only time time travel was used in a "LET'S CHANGE TIME" sense was that thing in the beginning with the grandfather paradox which was sort of retarded and not in line with the rest of CT.

As far as exploring history goes though I think Terranigma is a thematically similar but better game :3

Trying to understand how time travel works in CT isn't really a great idea if you don't want to go insane.

Really trying to resist the urge to just say tl;dr and failed.
6508  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Super Game Journal Turbo II - The New Challengers on: April 24, 2009, 11:27:35 PM
True, but that's nowhere near as problematic as like, you know, totally axing party chat.

The bastards.

The only people I know who hated college are the ones who were really anti-social or didn't even try to get involved with anything.  It's really one of the better parts of your life, try to enjoy it.

There's nothing to get involved with here, most of the people I know from classes don't live in town, and generally the people in town never get out anyway. And I don't drink and the bars look horrible here even if I did. I go down town all the time and I never see anyone down there. There ARE things down town but not a lot. Sometimes I just wander through town and I still rarely see anyone. Everything interesting is apparently in Toledo, except that's a half hour away, I don't have a car, and apparently Toledo's not a horribly safe city. I can't really describe it. It's just stifling here. There's no soul or culture or... whatever you'd want to call it. At least I graduate next year, and'll probably be going to grad school in a city I *like*.

Anyway, Alex was a little older in SSSC than in Legends or the original Lunar.

Maybe I'm just not thoroughly thinking it out, but I don't really recall nearly as many annoyingly childish younger characters percentage wise compared to the newer games.  Eh...

SNES games didn't have very good character development. GOOD character development is a double edged sword in that while likable characters get more screen time and purpose, so do the, uh, really annoying fucks.

Vivi's sort of anomalous because he doesn't strictly *act* young, although when he does, it's in a very... eh, real sort of fashion? I feel that FFIX's story had a lot more humanity than most FF storylines.

Also think Gabo from DQVII works. Doubly so were it to have had a better translation.
