I liked the fighting in Fallout.

I did not like the endless fighting in Fallout 2.

Okay honestly as I've said a MILLION times before, I thought Fallout 1 was better than 2 in pretty much every way. Fallout 1 was a concise, punchy, and well-written RPG that you could beat in about 15 hours and replay readily. Fallout 2 tried to reimagine Fallout 1 as an epic-length RPG with lots of dungeon crawling and really crappy humor that was based on nothing but pop culture r...

Comparison!

Fallout 1 = pixar.
Fallout 2 = dreamworks.

Yeah. The review made it sound like the latter.

It's possible the reviewer just sucked at the game and was grinding to compensate but I like giving the benefit of the doubt.

(mind turns to sacha baron cohen; leonard cohen; national film boards of canada; boards of canada; and i am away lying on my back and watching airplanes fly across the surface of the moon. --kjetl)

Admittedly the game sounds like it lacks backtracking and most SRPGs have finite enemies in battles, so... kinda of confused.

well the RPGFAN review of Devil Survivor said it was grindy so I guess I'm not looking froward to that anymore. And now my signature is SUPER relevant. !!

While I certainly enjoy an occasional break from them (As is evidenced by my love for Chrono Cross and the SaGa games) there's a reason they've been around for as long as they have, and for why they're crossing over into other genres(Because they work and are an effective tool).  They're not going anywhere.

Well, okay. CC gave you slight bonuses for like doing one or two battles per star level, but essentially in CC you got experience levels after beating a story boss and nowhere else much.

Or have experience levels but do it like Morrowind where an experience level is some DERIVED thing based on various other forms of character advancement. Like, applied to the SaGa system, every x number of total stat points gained across all stats amounts to a new "level."

I think experience levels are sort of an outdated concept in general, really. Just give the player stat points/skill points/let them learn new skills/whatever at pre-determined plot points or for completing a certain number of/a certain specific side quest(s).

DQ7 did it the worst; spend dozens of hours gaining job levels only to lose characters.

From what I remember Kiefer is the only character that permanently leaves your party, and that's way before the job system opens up.

Dragon Quest has never really been a story-heavy series so I don't see any problem with making it online.

I meant that less in a "Oh no what about the story?" and more in a "I hate multiplayer generally" sense.

Bad experiences with counterstrike when i was younger.

I just got Annah in Planescape.

I haven't been able to give a damn about other games since starting Planescape, no matter how hard I try.

Eustace, it's fully 3D.

No random battles and paperdolling sounds loverly. But I'm not sure how I feel about the supposed online component?

Rinoa attacks enemies by shoving her arm up her dog's nether regions and then throwing it at them or something. Rinoa is totally a princess in the sense of "Hi I live in Ohio and my 4-H club voted me queen and now I get to parade around the county fair," because that's just how we roll in Ohio.

The only reason I'd argue that Rinoa isn't one is that she's dead for half the story and thus can't be a gossip girl at school.

Yeah, but I went to Mortuary School.

It'd be even awesomer if it contained Wasteland, too :(

My personal theory is that Soul Blazer should be ported to every present platform and included standard, honestly, but that'll never happen.

I seriously had a goddamn dream about a Soul Blazer DS remake where you like, your little orb dude... you controlled it with the stylus. Why doesn't this exist :<
