i think im around september now and i cant remember the last time my characters got tired. on a side note the music in this game is awesome. the FES opening rocks,and having lyrics in a lot of the music is really cool. this game also has an addiction factor on the level of pokemon D:

i just picked up FES. so far the game made me throw my controller once. i had gotten to the third barrier,and there was still a TON of time till the next full moon so i went to grind and gained about 5 levels. then i said to myself one more battle then i'll leave. then what happens? a monster cast mudo/mundo? on the main character and he dies...... on a lighter note did anyone try to make the main character give into lust in the love hotel and shack up with yukari =P

I never said gender/sexual orientation/whatever is not complex. Of course it is. I'm just saying, personally for me, I look for other personality traits in people.


Being a gay person, I just get slightly irritated when LGBTQ people are attention whores about their orientation and have to let the whole world know about it. I know a LOT of people like this. I get even more irritated when they define themselves solely based upon their orientation, as if this is all they have to offer. I kinda understand why a lot of gay people are flamboyant with the way they act given the history of gays that have had to hide their sexual orientation from everyone at the risk of getting discriminated or hurt. But sometimes when I see a queeny flaming gay at the club strutting by, it's just a huge turn off and it's like... ugh, just stop.


I guess an ideal world for me would be one in which nobody gave a damn about sexual orientation anymore, that gay/bi/straight/tran/genderfuck/queer were all accepted and tolerated in society with attention being focused on other social issues.



my only response to this really is that oppression breeds pride.

and to those that said they need a character they can relate to,how do you think i feel? thats why i prefer characters that are not romantically involved with anyone. also why i was quite miffed with the the ending of wild arms 4.

As long as they are really subtle about it and not have the protagonist be a walking stereotype, I fully support this. It's nice that some games even include homosexual characters in the first place, but if they are there purely for comic relief or some wow/surprise factor, it kinda ruins it for me. I still love Joachim though.

Gender/sexuality is one of those things I consider a secondary (maybe even tertiary) trait. Meaning, oh you're straight? bi? gay? That's nice, moving on! There's a plethora of other human characteristics that define one's personality, so if one were to create a homosexual protagonist, I just hope that the protagonist's gender/sexuality takes a backseat to some of the more interesting personality characteristics that could be addressed.

it can be more complex than you make it out to be.

I think making a game that focuses primarily on the protagonist's homosexuality and things associated with that (gay discrimination, rights, identity issues, whatever) would be really, really interesting and progressive for video gaming, but sadly I don't think the world is ready for that just yet.

theres already some anime like this so it cant be that far away.
2330  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Are old school RPGs still welcome? on: May 12, 2008, 08:37:55 PM
i like them provided they stand up to the test of time. stuff like phantasy star 4, both lunars, arc the lad collection and the shining series. btw mesh i live in ohio too and you are right non chain stores dont exist here.

the fire emblem series has tons of lesbian subtext,almost always involving pegasus knights. most notable to me was Lyn X Florina as well as heather in radiant dawn(she even says she joined your party to meet all the pretty girls :D). you could also make a case that there is some subtext between hrist and silmeria but thats a one way street. theres also Aelia in the original VP. i've heard that one of the saga games had an out lesbian character but her lines were censored in the us version.

i havent played since before christmas. but lately ive been getting the itch again. i only hope i still can because i got an email saying my POL account was terminated for not paying.

heres an old picture i found of a good day in dynamis. my sam is level 52 lol. i quit the job a couple years ago because at the time i couldnt afford a haubergon and i suck horribly at farming. i always depended on bcnm and ksnm for cash.

Quote from: "Der Jermeister"
I'm not particularly fond of crossovers since they typically come at the expense of good storytelling...



i dont know i think the super robot wars games have pretty good stories. but instead of trying to frabricate some half baked reason for all the characters to be together they pretend all the characters exist in the same universe. and they also have original characters as well as the crossovers.


im concerned for chaos wars since it was supposed to be released around mid april but got delayed.
2336  Media / The Soundroom / What kind of music do you listen to? on: May 10, 2008, 10:33:48 AM
i mainly listen to dance ,hip hop and um techno but thats kinda the same thing as dance i guess. i listen to some pop too. when i was in high school i was into britney spears more upbeat stuff. i also listen to music from videogames. but that mostly falls under the category of megaman(1-8,and some from the X series)super robot wars(only from original characters) phantasy star online and universe(epiosde 3 has great music) and FFXI has some great music as well. i used to listen to rap when i was younger but that was back when coolio's fantastic voyage was new lol. i listen to rhianna but that probally falls under hip hop or pop.

2339  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Most Anticipated RPG for the summer on: May 02, 2008, 02:03:23 PM
not really looking forward to anything but may pick up a 360 in the summer to try blue dragon and  lost odyssey.  what i am really waiting for is the big stuff like white knight story.
2340  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Persona 3 question on: May 02, 2008, 01:59:20 PM
i have been thinking of picking up FES since it includes the original game but i am still on the fence. as someone who values gameplay over story whats the likelyhood of me liking this game? normally i would jump on any game that is hyped here but personally the last 2 times i personally got burned. suikoden 5 and dragon quest 8 if you are curious.
