Hnnnnnnnn The Dark Spire maybe? Although I'm sort of thinking that's going to just end up being a grindfest or completely miss the point of how first-person dungeon crawls work.

Dragon Quest 5 DS, maybe. Unless Square takes out party chat again, in which case I'm not buying it out of principle.

It's kind of hard to get hyped up new games because the DS is the only sort-of-modern system I have, and my laptop doesn't have a graphics card, and I'm not fond of a lot of indie RPGs because they're generally either kind of derivative JRPGs or kind of derivative roguelikes. And getting anticipated about indie RPGs is a tad risky given the high projects to vaporware ratio.

As for the AI doing nothing problem, it's a combination of the Attack/Defense skill level, strategy set for the character, and current HP or MP. It's not a bug, but it can be annoying.

No. It was a bug. They AI broke. None of the other conditions would've caused the NPC to behave like it did. I'm not the only person that experience this. If it actually was a feature, it's a damn stupid feature, and if it's something you can turn off, then that speaks volumes about the level of feedback you have on the game's mechanics in-game.

And the dungeons were horrid, which was the worst part for me. Nevermind that they made item making a pain in the ass. Nevermind that the game was just flat-out ugly. Nevermind the stupid turtle minigame. Nevermind that the battle system was slow and felt kind of outdated. The only game I've played where I liked the dungeons less was Daggerfall, and *that's* what killed the game for me.

Crusader Kings:

All of my decent marshals and stewards keep becoming counts, so my stats are getting worse. Specifically, in a recent push into Turkey towards some one-province, non-allied Muslim beydoms, I apparently pissed of the Very Massive Sheikdom of Seljuk turks. So they went to war with me. I took one of their provinces on the western front, they took one of mine. Big deal. However, 'cos they were distracted, I had some of my vassals in east Georgia (one of which was now a Duke, because I had enough of the provinces over their to make that title) take out... oh, three or four provinces in the east. Then I declared war on someone who as part of a (small) Emirate. Whoops. They didn't do much cause they were fighting in the west, but then some OTHER non-Seljuk aligned Sheikdom go mad because I was getting too close to their borders. And then they declared war. And then Azerbaijan decided they wanted in on the action too. Azerbaijan alone isn't a huge problem as they're small. Same for this other Sheikdom. Problem, though, is that I'm drained from fighting the Seljuks, and now I'm fighting two separate wars on two separate fronts.

On top of this, some of my old vassals died and their kids don't like me as much. Their kids also aren't masters of the battlefield which DOES NOT HELP.

Also, they're Muslims, so if I try to offer peace deals with them the Pope gets all up in my grills as he's like


and i'm like

goddamit you stupid bastard i'm orthodox go to hell

Also Leon doesn't have any kids. That could be a problem. His wife's like, in her 50s and he's only 30 so I don't really blame him. He is, however, chaste. Which IS a problem. So I need to change the inheritence law to something more beneficial, but I think that can cause revolts which is *bad*.

You can make your own sea kitten in some flash game there. Most are horrifying. It's great.

Not even kidding, that sounded like an incredibly interesting game. What exactly are you playing and where can I get it?

Crusader Kings. Paradox Games makes it. I think they sell it on Gamer's Gate, though if you live near a Half Price Books & More it's typically sold for like, 6 bucks there..

Risk meets The Sims isn't an ENTIRELY inaccurate way of describing it. Also the extent to which it works as an RPG depends on the extent to which you play it as one, kind of. You do have to delve into the dynastic stuff to keep from shooting yourself in the foot, but how much you want to micromanage inter-character relationships is up to you (and the expansion pack, which I don't have, adds a friends & rivals system which sort of furthers it in that sense).Int

Oh well, for explanation, Ninja Gaiden has, or had, this weird tendency to show up on eBay as Ninja HME because of how the kanji for gaiden look. I noticed that you were actually spleling out HIME now though.

sorry but i don't understand what you mean here, would you please explain it?

I dislike Star Ocean 3 a great deal.

What is your native language, out of curiosity?

Puzzle Quest! It's also pretty cheap (and if you don't want to play it on the DS, it's been ported to, uh, every other system. And computers.

Ohio's unemployment fund just ran out. So not only do we have maginally retarded people killing their mothers over Halo, we're also broke.

QUMPLOR Uses More Processor Levels for Outrageous Rasterization.

I... that has nothing to do with JRPGs.


Free-leveling Upgrade Realization Network for General Enhancement

You know. Enhancing your generals in an SRPG.


Generalized Roleplaying for Armored Shape-Shifters


Alechmically Augmented Ancestor Armor Artifacts.

It's a kind of giant robot.

Sweet, this didn't happen in Ohio!

Although admittedly this is something I would expect from Ohio. A girl from the neighborhood I grew up in sold her baby to a couple out in California, for instance.

Persona 4- In Heaven level 5, this cluster of regular encounter enemies who get to strike first and cast megidolaonn twice in a row are pretty annoying.

Is it true that Heaven is a place where nothing ever happens?


Giorgi Bagratuni died with fairly crappy stats all around. Despite his successes in expanding Georgia, he lost much of thta territory when his vassals defected, primarily because of mistakes made during a pre-emptive and poorly planned war against the Tribe of Cuman. In the second or third war against them, he died, and his son Leon Bagratuni, Count of Saray, was crowned the new King of Georgia. Immediately after this, three more vassals defected--one in North Georgia, one of the former Alanian states, and the province of Albania, all of which were reconquered and reincorporated into the Kingdom of Georgia. The County of Kakheti also defected, but refused to cede land at peace signing. Current early expanses made under Leon Bagratuni include taking over the Emirate of Turkmens and its single-province vassal, and the Tribe of Bolgar and its single-province vassal. Georgia is slowly gaining the gateway it needs to migrate into Scandinavia.

Leon has also gained the trait honest, after refusing to cheat on his wife while at war, and his piety and prestige are increasing. He is also respected by his vassals, one of which has been around, I believe, since the rule of Leon's grandfather, Bagrat Bagratuni.

Currently, the County of Semakha, ruled by a 13-year old, and containing the essential province of Imertia, has refused offers for vassalization. They have also made an alliance with Georgia's eternal enemy, the Tribe of Cuman (which is slowly being eaten by Ryazan, Muscovy, and Hungary).

Why the hell did I narrativize that. Goddamn I'm a loser.
