i have a question. i always thought the ST series was a strategy rpg hybrid series but i just watched a video and saw this girl fighting a big robot on a horse and it looked a lot more like an action rpg than a strategy rpg.

do we really need another remake of lunar 1? i'd prefer a remake of lunar 2.

i live in ohio so cedar point is pretty much all i got but thats definately not a bad thing since its the coaster capital of the world :D

Roller coaster rankings

The following steel[9] and wooden[10] coasters were ranked by Amusement Today in 2008:

[edit] Steel

    * Millennium Force: 2nd
    * Magnum XL-200: 7th
    * Top Thrill Dragster: 9th
    * Maverick: 12th (voted Best New Ride for 2007)
    * Raptor: 19th

[edit] Wooden

    * Mean Streak: 39th
    * Blue Streak: 48th

Cedar Point also holds several IAAPA Big E Awards for Live Entertainment productions.


i'm suprised the maverik is only ranked 7th since its probally my favorite.

well i seen a couple anime's with lesbian couples. one of them was particularly interesting to me because one of the characters was having a hard time accepting the fact that she is gay.

i never understood the point of a fps rpg personally.

i'm mildly excited but i have to learn more first. i've seen the sakura wars anime though and i enjoyed it.

I'm all for including homosexuality in video games... as long as it isn't there simply as titlating fodder for straight gamers. I DO NOT see Mass Effect's lesbian relationship as a step-forward for gay rights, for instance... in fact I see it more as an objectification of lesbianism for the enjoyment of straight males. Maybe it was fairly tastefull, maybe it wasn't even neccessarily unethical, but let's not kid ourselves either.

Which actually brings up a problem I have with Alisha's "interpretations": Fanwank. I find it awfully offensive to the original material when people do this kind of crap. Perhaps that's why I don't like fanfiction in general (especially not pornfics), though there are occasions when a fanwriter can do the original material justice. One of the most frequent and offensive subversions is homo-to-hetero or hetero-to-homo (the latter being more common). It reaches a degree of way-more-offensive when straight females transform straight males into homosexuals (owing to the issue where straight females have no god damned clue what being a male homosexual is like -- I don't either, but then I'm not doing this), but it's ridiculous either way.

Hrist = Not a lesbian.
Aelia = Also not a lesbian.

Fear Effect on the other hand? Go nuts. :P
well it's not like I write fanfics or something. it's just something to help me forge an attachment with a character. but sometimes it backfires on me such as in the case of Raquel in the ending of WA4,and Tear when she blurts out that she loves luke at the end of the game. oftentimes when i see a depiction of love in a rpg between a male and female such as the scene near the end of FFX i feel like a fish out of water. maybee it's partly jealousy since the last time my girlfriend kissed me in public someone threw food at me >_>

I have to say that being a gay gamer would kind of suck when there aren't very many gay relationships in video games.  The percentage of gay gamers (I haven't bothered researching it, but I'd imagine it's slightly higher than the world's proportions in terms of sexual preferences)  doesn't really support that kind of close-mindedness.  Granted most of the straight relationships are pretty bad in video games anyway, but people with different preferences are mostly left to imagine relationships that aren't canon since the games themselves tend not to do it.  Which I always found odd with JRPGs anyway because gay characters are a dime a dozen in anime, including even those with a similar target audience age.  Even the fact the developer gender skews highly towards males doesn't really explain this discrepancy because last I checked a lot of guys like the whole lesbian innuendo bit.

it does suck but i'm really good at reapropiating(sp?) a character that shows even the slightest sign. such as Hrist and Aelia in the VP series. maybee i'm lucky but i've never faced negativity online due to my sexuality. about the bible... what if the bible said god created black people to be white mans slaves? would be have people wanting slavery because the bible says so?

i'm a fan of this series but i hope they allow a control method that revolve around swing the wii mote.
2290  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: SRTOGS Endless Frontier on: May 07, 2009, 04:22:41 PM
i dont know hathen. i personally thought SRT D was REALLY hard! and comparatively speaking i thought SRT og2 is fairly easy. however i think some of D's difficulty comes from the fact that the amount of stat you get from upgrades is really low compared to later games. and some of what makes SRT OG2 easy is the plentiful combination attacks. maybee if i'm lucky kaguya nanbu will appear in a future OGS game.

eh... i'm generally not a fan of western rpg's. don't get me wrong that lord of the rings rpg was pretty good and i like diablo'esque stuff. but fallout and morrowind suck.
2292  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Turn Based RPG, Do they no longer exist? on: May 07, 2009, 04:05:15 PM
What is there not to like about handhelds?  You can play them anywhere you want, you don't have to stay rooted to one place to use them.  I personally feel they are superior to consoles in every way possible.

But yeah, if you want in on the whole JRPG thing for this gen you're going to HAVE to make the move, because console sales are dying in Japan and all the devs are moving to handhelds, because that's where the money is.

i generally dont like handhands unless i can play them on a TV wich is why i now own a psp.

i was pleasently suprised with what the browns did. for a while it looked like they wanted to gut the offense in order to improve the defense but that didn't happen.
