Are we positive this Giygas guy isn't that one dude that just got banned for talking about emulation, because some of his mannerisms seem a little similar.

However, nothing beats DQ7 for the slowest JRPG of all time award.  It's like 3 hours before you actually get in a real fight (aside from an early slime battle for plot purposes).

Yes, but you ARE actually doing stuff this time, like going through a puzzle dungeon and exploring towns and stuff. Persona 3's start seems a lot slower than it really is because it's almost entriely non-interactive, even though it was only about an hour or so in length.

Finished Baloch's tower in DQ7.

Somewhere in the middle of Alena's thing in DQ4.

Got up to the Kran in Unreal.

You have to admit that SO3 wasn't a matter of "easing into it" but rather a matter of "nothing is happening for three hours so just deal with it" though.

Is Felghana the remake of 3? I loved 3's music.

Plenty of old-school action with some truly great music.

Everyone tells me this but Ys 6's music sounded like stuff you'd hear in grocery stores in the 80s to me.

PC (Non-Mac). Freeware. Best RPG I've played in a long time. Low system requirements. Quite traditional.

Yeah, Persona 3 has the slowest start in a game since like, Star Ocean 3.

Tartarus is the only dungeon but it changes its appearance every block, and new gameplay elements start cropping up (floors with two stairs, floors containing nothing but rare monsters, etc).

haha yea it was a nice idea but they could have implemented these dialects a little better.

The Scots was pretty well done though which is why the Russian just like made me WTF.

And I'm pissed about the party chat being taken out because I hear it was the main source of character development in DQIV. Having played DQVII, it was DEFINITELY the main source of character development *there* so I'd believe that about IV. It added to the characters in DQVIII, for sure, but it was pretty much the only source of character development in DQVII and if it's the same way with IV... yikes. I really hope this isn't a case of the Square guys at Squenix taking out their frustations on the Enix guys, as that doesn't really bode well for 5 or 6.

Anyway I think I found further confirmation you can get a full Immigrant Town without Wifi. Except something from another forum:

Quote
The immigrant system is different in the fact that there aren't, I don't know, about 100 different ones to pick up in the various pick-up spots. In the DS one, there's specific characters findable at specific points in the game instead. It was pretty cool I thought to be able to recruit NPC's from earlier chapters (like all the combatants from the arena) in the PS1 one, but I don't remember them being recruitable anymore in the DS one. It's very streamlined in the DS one and there is only 1 final form of the town instead of 7 or however many variations you could have had in the PS1 one.

Lovely.

I never even understood the weapon system in FFX. Well, I did. Rather, I never had enough Bomb Fragments or Chocobo Nards or whatever it was I needed to collect to unlock new abilities on them (or am I thinking about Aeon Abilities?)

Sort of confused by people complaining about Scottish accent in game. As far as I can tell from http://sco.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scots_leid, it's not actually transcribing the way the accent sounds but using Scots orthography, to an extent.

Also it looks like the wi-fi stuff in Immigrant Town is just being able to send out custom emissaries. i think. I seriously hope it hasn't been neutered from the PSX version where you could get some 38 NPCs from around the world there. If it is, that combined with the removal of the party chat is seriously some serious fucking fuckshit.

I heard they took out party talk that they added for the japanese version.

Dammit, it doesn't have it in the US version but I didn't know it was *removed.*

And reading some other stuff, apparently party chat amounted for half of the game's script. What the fuck?

I hope they didn't do something stupid to Immigrant Town. It sounds like it involves that thing where you put your copy of DQ4 in search mode and if anyone ELSE has their game in search mode too, you get a new immigrant. The problem with this is that nobody will ever do this. I hope there's some sort of component where you can find immigrants in the single-player game.

I just saw the Spore review and if I were to talk like Yahtzee for a second:

Well shit, that was shit.

In DQ1, though, grinding actually felt somewhat meaningful as a level up usually meant more noticably betterer stats or something, and your level capped out around... 20 or something anyway. In general I'd say that for a lot of old-school RPGs, the levelling up process was a lot more meaningful for similar reasons, and it was FF1 that sort of... went against this.

Also what the crap they took out whips and boomerangs?

Anyway though I ended up getting this because, judging by the imminent collapse of various banks, the economy needs help! MY help! By buying this game -- from a local, privately owned shop, no less -- I'm doing my patriotic duty to help out the United States' economy!* It's sort of like a Victory Garden except I don't have to worry about homeless people stealing my cabbage.

Anyway, failing to find anything Hebrew in origin that I liked, I decided to go Caucasian and ended up with Naskhida for my hero.

* Or at least I keep telling myself this to fend off the inevitable feelings of buyer's remorse.

music not being crappy J-pop all the way through.

What about the parts that were non-vocal, non-j-pop ambient music?
