2131  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Pontificating Sega's future RPG offerings on: July 14, 2008, 08:46:55 PM
Valkyria Chronicles is pretty much Sega's latest RPG offering.  Considering Vyse, Aika, and Fina make cameo appearances, it's safe to say what team was involved in its creation.

Lame....

Now we have just another game that's dumbed down to work on both consoles.

This console generation is turning into PC gaming.

One of the biggest advantages console gaming had was to deliver an amazing gaming experience given the hardware the console had.
Now we have games that can't be optimized for any set of hardware and have to work universally.

Anyone who thinks the 360 or PS3 is that much different in visual capability is silly.  They're both running GPUs based on PC videocards from ATI and Nvidia two generations ago... almost three considering what's up-and-coming.

You know, nevermind the whole object-oriented programming angle.  The idea that no one console is capable of being used to its fullest capability because it's a multiplatform game is dumb.
2133  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Star Ocean 4 being exclusive to the 360? on: July 14, 2008, 07:26:24 PM
Finished watching four trailers on the marketplace.  Star Ocean 4 looks incredible.  Fable 2 also looks incredible.

Non-RPG wise, Resident Evil 5 looks amazing, as does Gears of War 2.  My 360 is going to get a lot of playtime, holy shit.

I doubt it, but we know it's coming to the console first.  Additionally, a new trailer is up on the Xbox Live Marketplace.  There's also a new trailer for Fable 2.  Downloading them as I type this.

'08 was going to be the year of the PS3 only in fanboys' minds.

I don't regret owning all three consoles, however.  White Knight Chronicles is going to be published by SCE and thus will never see the light of day on 360.  Likewise goes to Uncharted 2, whenever Naughty Dog finishes it.  Valkyria Chronicles is going to ship in November, and Little Big Planet will be here soon.

PS3 isn't the RPG console this generation, but it still has games to play if you think the entry fee is worth it.

Boring trailer is boring.  Seriously, more than half of it was stuff we've already seen, 99% of it was CG, and it was a poorly pieced trailer at that.  The earlier ones had far better music and had better direction.  Like this one.

Show us some freakin' gameplay already, Square.  NEW gameplay that is, not that same sequence of Lightning launching soldiers into the ceiling.  We saw that bit two years ago.

Man, those announcements are badass.

I just hope they're patched to already existing 360s. :P

It will be.  I imagine they're saving all of this for the annual fall dashboard update, since they skipped the spring update that they usually do.

Disc swapping argument negated.  Now, I'm on the fence as to which version I buy.  I will wait for information.  The reasoning?

Play from hard drive. Copy your games from the game disc and play directly from the hard drive.  Not only will the drive not spin, but load times are quicker, as well. Of course, you will still need the disc in the tray to prove you own the game.

That is fucking amazing.  Oh God, I am sooooooooooo happy right now.  My only gripe with Mass Effect was the loading issues for data... installing on the hard drive would eliminate the vast majority, if not all of it.

Basically. It's a stupid argument.

Not really.  I know Metal Gear Solid 4 has the multiple installations, but that was a special case for a game I already trolled in a thread on this board as being overhyped and overrated.  Three other games I own have the one-time install and you end up with little to non-existant load times.

That's disgusting.
2141  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Holy Crap. Final Fantasy XIII for Xbox 360 on: July 14, 2008, 04:17:37 PM
LMFAO @ FFXIII on 360.

I already own a PS3 though, so I'll be getting it for my PS3 since I won't have to deal with disc swapping.  Sony sycophants are undoubtedly shitting their pants.  I need to go read all the flame wars.  It should be precious.

You obviously never played the Phantasy Star series.

2143  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Infinite Undiscovery on: July 08, 2008, 10:45:21 PM
In case you hadn't noticed, this game will let you have a big-ass freakin' BEAR in your party.  A bear named GUSTAV.  A bear that pulls a SHORYUKEN while smiling like a dumb animal the entire time.  8D

Boring wolf in Vesperia is boring.  Wow, a wolf in a Japanese game.  Because we didn't just get finished with Okami and Zelda: Twilight Princess.  Get out.
2144  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Infinite Undiscovery on: July 08, 2008, 09:04:08 PM
Who cares.  It is a happy bear.

2145  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Infinite Undiscovery on: July 08, 2008, 08:57:08 PM
8D
