I'm sure this'll come back to bite me but most land shards are in chests or just lyring around or quest rewards so I don't see how they're THAT easy to miss.

SoA has a slow start.

I have some suggestions that aren't on that list:

The US invasion of Panama.
Kievan Rus' society.
The Kosovo Conflict (or anything involving the former Yugoslavia).
The Chechen Conflict and the parallels between that and the US invasion of Afghanistan and Iraq (Bonus points for focusing on parallels between the Moscow bombings and the WTC attacks.)

I LIKE the first three hours of nothing but exploration and puzzle solving.

Agreed. There aren't battles but saying there's nothing happening is a bit of a misnomer, as it's more or less interactive, unlike some games with slow starts where you're essentially reading text for an hour straight and then you get a tutorial dungeon.

Also, yes, DQVII IS slow, but the benefit of the slow story progression is that even random townie NPCs get character development. I also liked the later introduction of the job system. In most RPGs, by the the 30% completion mark, you've seen all of the gameplay the thing has to offer. Putting the job system off gets away from that trend.

Also, it's a PC game, but it's also free and will work on your computer as long as it's Windows: http://www.agdinteractive.com/

It's an adventure game with really heavy RPG aspects, and your stats are required to solve some puzzles (and most puzzles have multiple solutions depending on which your best stats are). The combat in the remake is pretty neat -- action based, but fairly complex -- and there's a day/night system like in Persona 3. The story's also really nice and doesn't strangle itself on humor like a lot of other Sierra games did.

Somewhere near the end of Torneko's chapter and I'm getting really sick of it because it just told me to grind for 35000 gold, which is more like 10000 gold if you get the statue which is still a lot, and now I'm grinding for some equipment crap for the king.

And Lennon got shot and a lot of musicians have died from cancer.

anyway news says Barker and DJ guy should recover but to be the only survivors in a crash like that? That must be really weird feeling.

Hey, anyone know if anyone's doing a fan translation of the party talk stuff (in plain text or HTML format, please. Let's keep this legit)? It seems in inevitable, but I'm wondering if anything's already in the works.
7480  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Quest IV on: September 20, 2008, 01:03:38 PM
yuanshu, do the NPCs ever get any dialogue later on? I finished Alena's quest last night, and Borya and Kiryl both got two lines each. That kind of makes the whole removal of the party talk even more... dissapointing if it really does mean it took out all sorts of character development that got added to the new script.

Also I have no idea what the shopping thing is for in Torneko's quest.

I only played 3 but I never got anywhere in it because unrotatable camera + small TV screen = I can't see anything, ever. Also, I never figured out how saving worked in that game. Did you only get to save your game after a screen change? I know it let you save anywhere but it didn't seem like it recognized anything I'd done sometimes, and I'd always start at the beginning of the area with none of the stuff I'd done done.

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.
