if a ff7 remake where to use the white engine it would conceivably would not take to long to make no? white engine i believe is what ffxiii uses as well as the new SE MMO

From IGN:

"Yes, ship. Star Ocean 4 will, expectedly, continue the same space theme of past entries. Players have their own ship this time around and can travel freely through the stars, landing and exploring as they like. The game will feature a large number of planets, although Kojima noted that players will be able to land their ship in places that aren't really properly formed planets."

i was inactive for a year and my characters were still there when i came back. when i say inactive i mean my account  was deactivate due to a lack of funds in my bank account. i think you are fine as long as you didnt delete them yourself.

i want to clairify something. i wasnt miffed about the 2H buff persay. i do enjoy playing drg after all.

it was the combination of the 2h buff,1h got an accidental nerf though i wonder if it was a temporairly intentional thing,and lastly SE hasnt thrown monk a bone in a longass time unless you count +mind and vit gear as bones.

i sorry you didnt like the characters. i personally love Tri-Ace's penchant for strong female characters.

what are you talking about? why do people want to solo in mmo's?thats like masturbating at an orgy. its near impossible to have a system where both solo'ing and partying are equally effective without having adverse effects on the other. anyways i'm loving the new ffxi pokemanz. anyways my apkallu just got served by a wamoura of the flying death variety. if you dont know what that is its basically a moth form of a crawler.


Sometimes you can't find someone to do stuff with and/or just feel like doing something by yourself. People pay the same amount whether they want to solo or group, why should it matter to you what they want to do?



theres a bit you can do by yourself:
level up your npc
learn some bluemagic spells for bluemage
catch some pokemanz
craft
ive taken to playing other games while i lfg personally.
also i don't care what others want to do. except in this case if SE let every job solo it would most likely have a negative impact on those that want to party.


also while i dont know a whole lot about wow i don't think you can reach the max level solo easily. but if you are not one of those hardcore players i can see how you would get some enjoyment out of soloing in wow. the only way i could see soloing being added to ffxi without effecting the core gameplay is solo assaults heck ive used beseiged often for buffer.

since star ocean is heavily influenced by star trek i wont be suprised if star ocean 4 has a borg-like mennace =P
2274  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Star Ocean 4 on: September 11, 2007, 05:31:52 AM
some of you might cringe when you see a certain something in star ocean 1. not gonna outright spoil it since some of you seem interested in the remake. i played the dejap translation a couple years ago.
2275  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Who´s getting Final fantasy tactics: the lion war??? on: September 10, 2007, 02:59:24 AM
if it was for ps2 instead of psp i'd be more interested. that and the fact that i've beaten FFT on psx about 10 times. also as far as balthier is concerned i was under the impression that the FFT ivalaice is not the same as the FFXII ivalice. unless its in the future and bangaa and seeq and viera are extinct,but then you have the problem of explaining the differences in the summons.

My only real problem with SO3's battle system, is how you could run around like the dickens (at least Fate, could, anyway), but when you finally got down to swinging your sword, it was slow.

I'd swear that the animations of your attacks were done in slow motion.

For that matter, an enemy could step a millimeter away from you during your sword stroke, and it'd miss.

For that matter, quick/weak attacks were pointless when enemies always used guard/barrier; you'd need a slow/strong attack to hit them without getting paralyzed all the time.

What I hope they improve in the sequel, is to make the battle system more reminiscent of that of a hack n' slash game.

I'd still like enemy encounters, and encounter them in real-time like you did in SO3, but once you're in battle, I want to be able to jump and execute combos, and all sorts of shit like that, like you do in games like Devil May Cry or Chaos Legion. They only variation they ought to do is to make combat faster than it is in DMC/CL, or hack n' slash games in general.

I never got any of those combo special attacks that they showed in the SO3 gameplay demo footage; my guess is that they weren't even included in the final game.

To be honest with you, I'm not so fond of traditional RPGs as I am of hack n' slash games; I'm really losing interest in menu-based fare.


your entire post shows me that you had little understanding of the SO3 battle system. hard attacks are meant to lower an enemies guard so that you can set up link attacks with the soft attack. link attacks are important because the damage gets progressively higher during links capping out at 300% damage. and again the AI in SO3 was only stupid if you didnt raise attack or defense. i expect in star ocean 4 your allies will ask to use healing items like they do in rouge galaxy and tales of the abyss. since in SO3 if a character got low on hp they wouldnt attack and would avoid enemies and if they had a healing spell they would use it on anyone who is low. much like VP the SO3 battle system was very methodical.

i honestly could care less if the plot is medicore as long as i get to kick ass in style and am treated to yet more wondeful endgame dungeons and content. i hope they adopt the tales series exhibition matches. i would love to kick the crap out of jack russel. id also be curious to know wich SO3 ending was cannon. i never got the fayt/nel ending but i liked the fayt/maria ending sophia can go die in a fire.

i felt grandia 2 was pretty tame compared to tales of the abyss if you were to say that the score is a metaphor for the bible. that however is besides the point because clearly no gamers are athiest and might actually like rpg's that assault religeon.

i also didnt care for fable being on that list because of what it implies.
2279  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Star Ocean 4 on: September 07, 2007, 10:18:41 AM
dont cry to much. every star ocean game ive played(all of them except the gameboy color one)have some kind of retro planet. from what i can see in the scans the female character looks like a sophia archetype.... wich would be fail. i'm hoping they bring back battle trophies.
