Terranigma.

Picks WAY the hell back up after the clusterfuck that Dragoon Castle was, thank god. Beruga's Lab is pretty neat and has the same sort of creepiness to it that the black omen has (only not as much). The only problems are that:

A) It's not really clear that you need to keep returning to the elevator to progress. Actually letting you pick floor 1, 2, or 3 (Well, F1, B1, and B2. Wevs) while ghosting the ones you CAN'T use would've been a bit clearer, while also signaliing when you become able to go to different floors. Or something. I'm wondering if maybe it did and it was lost in translation. Also it wasn't clear if the various crawl-through vents were decorations or not. Same for the teleporters, especially since you have to jump into them. Better if you'd just walk in, or walk up to and press X.

IoG:

I think Lance is about to play Russian roulette. I love this game.

Breeth of Fair, the Frist:

I did some dungeon. I don't really know why. Back to IoG!

pulled up a picture of Neal (Dincrest) and determined that he's black. He's from India. Look at his last name.

I hear they made Dincrest black for the international release of RPGFan though,

Damned localization changes.

It's not really any worse than any other very traditional SNES RPG.

What about the people that try to find out where you go to school because... because they want to marry you?

tl;dr

---edit---

Wait, wait. What the fuck? Half of my posts are over 1000 words in length and I'm not in your goddamn little MSPaint comic? What the fuck! I'm not doing that for my own personal sense of well being, you know.

Oh well, we at least have Black Sigil to take it's place.

That's supposed to come out next week dawg.

What'd really be funny, of course, is that as soon as you boot up up your DS with Black Sigil in it, DNF starts playing.

be totally within ethical bounds to emulate.

Ethics aside, that's not a kosher topic for discussion.

I didn't like SD3 much. I was actually playing it today. It's kind of slow and gets rids of all the puzzle-solving bits from SD2, where you used your weapons to interact with the environment. It does add a day/night cycle, a weekly day cycle, and class changing, but the first two are more cute than consequential and the latter's just not a very interesting class system.

I never understood the love for this series.

It was the only SNES RPG with good writing.

I tried doing the queen bee fight in evo. I'm not sure I have anything positive to say about this game.

The Japanese version of Terranigma generally runs around 25 if he knows la lingua japonica, and actually modding your SNES to play Japanese games doesn't involve anything more than breaking the tabs out of it, unlike PAL games which need converters. If there's an EU script somewhere for printing out and playing with, he might try that.

Actraiser is theoretically nonlinear since you can build towns in any order you pick AFAIK, although the difficulty of some of the bosses/sidescrolling levels and necessity to user certain spells in certain towns might require you to level up by building up certain towns first.

Soulblazer is also fairly linear but it lets you backtrack and sort of mandates it at points if you want certain items or whatever.

Earthbound looks interesting, i'll try to put aside my dislike of the Smash Bros games.

Unlike the original Smash Bros. games, the two Earthbounds that spun off from it are actually turn-based RPGs. This sort of upset some of the original Smash Bros. fans, but I personally thought it was a move in the right direction imho.

Who owns the rights to Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure now?

Morrowind:

Killed some dudes with my axe. Freed some slaves. Made them party members. So now including my main I have a party of five people. Yey. I don't have a clue what quest I'm going to do next. I'd honestly just like to get some money, wood, and a wood-carving kit so I can make myself some furniture, but I'd also like to start exploring the main questline and seeing what's what in the storyline as I've never, ever done that before.

Actually I have a thieve's guild quest to do. It's just that my thievery skills are too low. Namely pickpocketing.

usually very different in style to the average western RPG like Oblivion, Mass Effect and Fallout 3.

Bethesda's games are not indicative of Western RPGs. Goddammit.

I'm going to be illustrating a point and I need an audiencial volunteerist. You, little girl! In front! Hoshino Kid!

Would you please explain for our friends out there in TV land why you don't like Western RPGs?
