The big problem with Septerra Core is that it basically uses ATB, except the bar moves SLOW AS HELL and you can't do anything to speed it up, so more or less most of the game is spent by you sitting there and watching a bare slowly increase.

And while you wait, you think about your own impending mortality, but more horrifyingly, the death of everyone you know and love, and even more horrifingly, and perhaps oddly, the inevitable collapse of your favorite retail chain in the face of this recession.

Mine, of course, was Value City.

FFVI was the only FF that didn't end with the planet exploding, because in FFVI it happened at the midway point.

Personally I think NC is pretty damn sexy and I would like his beard.

Played BG2 for a little bit. Killed some random enemies, found a teddy bear for a kid, got some new quests. I don't really like the D&D core mechanics but the Ultima-ish-ness of the game interests me. and I had DS2 turned on briefly but barely played it. I've kind of lost the energy to do things and I had really bad hiccups since noon-ish.

Your favorite game is a blight upon the universe.

My favorite game is a blirght upon the universe.

Let's all sell our vidyagames and donate the money to charity.

FFIX is an exotic flavor in that its an FF game where all of the systems seem to actual feed into eachother in away that makes sense.

Also because you couldn't abuse Trances.

Also also I didn't care for the game's linearity.

Also also also for every charming Vivi there was a *facepalm* Garnet/Dagger.

Also also also also Necron.

In short there are things that one can find fault with just like every other FF game but I believe this one had less divisive issues (i.e. either being clearly inspired or clearly boneheaded) than the others.

Also also also also also Tetra Master sucked ass compared to Triple Triad.

Nothing in your post has any goddamn thing to do with the portion of my post you quoted.

PS2 is a pain but I'd say PS1 and 4 are definitely still worth playing. Sure, PS1 has tricky dungeons and grinding, but the dungeons are definitely doable without mapping (I did it, so I mean) and the grinding seriously tapers off after a certain point, and you're pretty likely to hit the level max without any grinding in the second half of the game well before the end anyway.

And Baya Malay is STILL hard.

The EPIC DUNGEON them from PS1 is so damn love.

Esthar is sort of like you're watching a black and white movie, and then this new character is introduced and they're all rainbowed colored.

Each character has five skills. That's not too much freedom, and I don't see how that could've gimped your main character unless you did something ODD like put ALL of your points in a personality skill. Just allocate points into whatever you're currently using, saving enough for the other skills if you wanna help them along too.

My new 50-something co-workers also like Hannah Montana. They also think that switching to all digital cable, and banning trans-fat containing oils in restaurants are the first steps to becoming a Communistic society.

FML.

Also a compelling argument for why a remake may not be a very good thing.

See, I like the idea of remakes as... well, patch versions. Like, remake FFVII, but leave it visually more or eless the same -- just add in some new features and rebalance it and fix bugs. Y'know?
6838  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Forgotten Old Square RPGs? on: June 09, 2009, 07:47:35 PM
gen, that's the gustav side of things, mostly. wil's is almost entirely dungeon crawl.

although yeah less explorationy and a lotmore linear, but you can stillg et sidequests and stuff. or at least backtrack a bit in certai n time periods
\
\in a lot of ways sgf2 is probably the most unconvential game in that series. honestly o don
t eve grasp how diuels work still, or the stuff with chiups. and the tech system is... odd.

Good example, recently, is game sites reviewing Korg DS. Especially IGN. People are complaining about it not being a tracker or something weird. Well no shit it's not a tracker.

However i still maintain that whole "fine line between acquring a taste for and putting up with" idea which is somewhat pavlovian in nature anyway. Maybe RPGs really ARE boring. We're just like, used to tahat. Or nu,b to it . So maybe its the nn rpgers t hat can see itmpre?

goddamn finger fuuuck

what I mean is that broad statements like "turn based always sucks" is utterly worthless -- i mean you can see similar things with strategy games now -- but some of the non-rogers playing rpgs are sort of doing it with fresh eyes.

in a sense smt:n really changed how i percieve rpgs and made me a hell of a lot criticaller about the.

additionally when wasnt game informer shit and some sort of gamestop shill rag WHORES

The remake looks kind of ugly though :( There's no PERSONALITY in the art.

Also yeah what the hell. SGF2? Plays like a normal JRPG? I admit i have a hard time getting into it because it's easily the hardest saga game out there and definitely has the most unforgiving weapon breakage system in place out of the bunch, but... normal JRPG? Maybe if you never even touched Wil's story, ever, but even then...

also i hurt my finger at work today :( and i can't type right :( or play videogames that use shoulders buttons :(

Or games that use buttons in general. Balls.
