DQ5. Just got the dude to marry Bianca. somehow "Hey, we're childhood friends. Wanna get hitched?" is more believable than most Squenix love stories.

Various tips for FF8:

A) You have to go out of your way to lose.
B) You acquire a fuckload of spells quickly.
C) Learn refine item, get fish fins from that fish enemy outside of balamb, and refine them into water.
D) Just mash auto-junction constantly.
E) In battle, pretty much do whatever does damage. I think the only way you could reasonably expect to die is if you just defend constantly.
F) Once you get Odin and the thing that replaces Odin (or that Odin replaces. I forgot the order), you will literally win every random battle instantly.
G) I'm not sure that you'd ever have any reason to cast anything besides Aura, in terms of spells.

That doesn't make any sense at all, unless steam was offering some sort of pre-patched version for some odd reason (which still doesn't make a lot of sense).

And I doubt that GOG would be applying any special compatibility patches as that would A) require that they have access to the sourcecode which is INCREDIBLY unlikely. B) require that they reverse engineered it somehow which isn't exactly kosher.

Various amounts of money.
Gift card for a local garden center (Debating whether or not to try growing sabal minors in Ohio. On the one hand, it's palms in Ohio. on the other hand, it's palms in ohio).
Bag of dirt.
Pot of various haworthias and aloes.
Banana seed kit (actually ensetes but who's counting?)
Some other cool things (Lightweight and/or plush Christmas ornaments, which'll be great for decorating my plants).

The advantage of GOG Is that they update the games to run on Vista\Win7, among a host of other things.

The oddworld games run in windows Vista/7 as-is AFAIK, as do the Unreal games. If the older unreal games DON'T run in windows it's a matter of a graphics card incompatibility and I don't think anything GOG does would address that (other than packing OldUnreal with it).

If it's a DOS game, you use DOSbox.

I tried Arx Fatalis on Steam when It first came out, the word "ASS" doesn't even begin to describe the shit job they did with that game.

The GOG version Is a dream to play, plus I love allot of the old games they have.

Okay what? I'm confused. What problems did you have with the steam version?

I've known plenty of men called the latter, so fuck you.

I know plenty of men called Cameron and Greer but those are still girl's names.

*ICE BUUUUUUUUUUuuuuuuuuuuurn*

Anyway I got Bangai-O Spirites today. It's fun makin' shit asplode, dawgz.
6758  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Crystal Chronicals order... CANCELED on: December 24, 2009, 06:26:42 PM
I don't really pre-order stuff unless it comes with a pre-order bonus, honestly. As such I avoid stuff like this entirely.

Do you guys live in a place where games go out of stock or something? Actually, funny thing about that. One time I told this guy I'd wait for FES to price drop before I picked it up*. He's like NO YOU CAN'T DO THAT ATLUS GAMES NEVER PRICE DROP THEY JUST GET RARE AND EXPENSIVE.

To this day, I can think of about three malls in the general Black Swamp region that have that game for like, 15 dollars. Several copies.

* I never did pick it up. I sort of stopped caring about P3 after uh... I don't know. I think I got fuuka.

Steam generally has better prices than GOG. For instance, Steam's Unreal pack has EVERY game in that series (except 2003 but that's sort of been stricken from the annals of history) for 15 whereas GOG seems to omit ONP and UT3 and is like, 20 or 25. Additionally Steam's oddworld pack is like, 3 bucks. GOG's is more.

hearing him called SEH-cil instead of SEE-cil is going to drive me up the wall. :P

SEH-cil is the male variant. SEE-cil is the female variant. How do you not know this?

Yeah, DQ4 DS is sort of a castrated translation of a castrated port of a PSX remake.

DQ5 is pretty damn great though.
6762  Media / General Games / Re: Romance of the Three Kingdoms - Which one to try first? on: December 23, 2009, 11:57:37 PM
Most recent ROTK was released on PC.

Sort of prefer Paradox's games, though.

CT wasn't silly. It was lighthearted. There's a significant difference.

A major plotpoint involves reviving the main character with a doll you win at the fair.

Anyway modern WRPGs are trending towards grimdark grrr but I think that's sort of modern gaming as a whole and it's stupid as hell.

I wish I could pinpoint the exact moment it happened, really, but I can't. Sometime before Oblivion came out, though, as exemplified by the fact that Morrowind had a sense of humor and Oblivion did not*.

I mean, even PS:T, something which SOUNDS total grimdark, is more Seussian than anything.

Basically what I'm saying is that Ultima 7's sexually frustrated unicorn, bee-loving nudist colony, and dragging a hapless 15 year old to a whorehouse totally would not fly today (although the last one... probably for different reasons. Sparky is totally funny though. He's like "8D" and Iolo's like ":(" and then the Avatar is all "Name job goodbye." Totally lulz. Totally, totally lulz).

* One game had you collecting the twelve whatevers to save a starving, injured fisherman. The other one had you finding pants for some guy that got his pants robbed.)
6764  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What ever happened to... on: December 22, 2009, 10:02:51 PM
we love and respect the eras of gaming we grew up with

I grew up with 16-bit gaming and don't like it :(

Got the fire ring in DQ5. I think. Wonder how long till I can start knockin' chicks up.

Also gave my Evil Apple a top hat. Suddenly I like RPGs again.

Recent talk on the other board's got me jonesin' for some Elona (up in this bitch).
