A short summary of the wholesome goodness that is Einherjar:

Exhibit A: Einherjar, like Dynamis, features *massive hordes* of enemies.



That PLD, who has incredible gear and full merits, flashed one of the Dark Elementals, which resulted in *ten* of them swarming him as the BRDs tried to sleep them.  He lived for, oh... five seconds?  But his sacrifice was not in vain, for the elementals were successfully slept!

At this point, the BLM leader called out a time, and the 8 BLMs began simultaneously casting Thundaga III.  The plan was to Thundaga III > Horde Lullaby > Firaga III > Horde Lullaby > Thundaga III, then they would be dead.  Frankly, I'm not entirely sure what happened, but hey, let's move on to...

Exhibit B: {Death}ga, another feature of the cavernous hell known as Einherjar.



There it is, your standard "Einherjar wipe!" screenshot.  We raised, rested up, and actually did a damn good job finishing off the rest of the elementals and 4 of the 6 Tainted Fleshes before running out of time.  Didn't make it to the boss fight, haha.

All-in-all, considering that 75% of the shell's members had never done Einherjar before, I think it was a great attempt.  We shall return next Monday for another opportunity at losing exp, gil, and our sanity!


looks like you coulda used some monks with formless strikes >_>
2327  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Suikoden VI on: January 28, 2008, 12:39:51 PM
i hope they can do something to spice up combat. i cant really explain it but the combat in suikoden V seemed boring compared to suikoden 4. maybe the graphical quality had something to do with it.
2328  Media / Single-Player RPGs / where does this sterotype come from? on: January 28, 2008, 12:31:41 PM
maybe its just the enviroment i was raised in(2 girls,5 boys,and the women run the show in my family.) but when i think of power i think of women. ive always liked confident and strong women like Aelia and Hrist from the VP series. even though she was strong physically Avril from WA5 annoyed me a lot.
2329  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Worst Hero & Villain on: January 14, 2008, 11:06:49 AM
haha how could i forget the worst hero ever just because he sucks! its Roy from fire emblem. unlike his smash bros appearence hes one of the worst characters in the game but you have to use him. he is by far the worst hero in any srpg i've played. hes like eirika except not awesome.
2330  Media / Single-Player RPGs / where does this sterotype come from? on: January 14, 2008, 10:24:38 AM
as you know many rpg's use a sterotype where female = caster/healer and the males are melee tanks. but where does this come from? the 3 earliest console rpg's i can think of are final fantasy, dragon warrior, and phantasy star. dragon warrior only has a male character. final fantasy lets you choose your classes but i dont recall if it even had a playable female character,and it most definately DID NOT come from phantasy star because well Alys was just awesome and lutz is the mage throughout the series.
2331  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Worst Hero & Villain on: January 14, 2008, 10:18:22 AM
baffles me why so many people hate squall especially since i've known so many men like him in the real world. hi see your best friend there she would fuck you in a heartbeat all you have to do is ask! but instead you fall for the next pretty face you see! *facepalm* maybe you hate him because you are just like him and dont want to admit it!!!!


the worst hero ever is clear the main character in dragon warrior 1! i kinda disliked the main character in suikoden 4 as well. also any timid female character voiced by michelle ruff makes me want to kill someone. rukia is fine but that voice made me want to strangle sophia and alicia.
2332  Media / Single-Player RPGs / favorite hero and boss from any game on: January 14, 2008, 09:56:09 AM
this thread got me to thinking. why are feamle main villians like non existant? the only one in recent memory i can think of is edea/ultimicia. you could possibly also count Freya in VP2 and maybe Ahly/Hrist before she joins you.


edit:guess ill add in some more heros i liked.

Shion-Xenosaga
sure she annoyed me at times but i annoy people too. plus you've got that Shion X Kos Mos subtext going on through the whole series.
2333  Media / Single-Player RPGs / favorite hero and boss from any game on: January 09, 2008, 11:22:34 AM
this hard for for me because its usually not the hero i like but the supporting cast or a character(s) that is the hero's support pillar(s). though despite not finishing FF6(i lost interest when kefka torched the planet) i really identified with Terra so i guess that make she my favorite. when she said can a human or esper love i knew exactly what she was thinking since im biracial black/white
2334  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Best secondary characters... on: January 09, 2008, 09:13:24 AM

Raquel WA4

2335  Media / Single-Player RPGs / RPGs with multiple protagonists/points of view on: January 04, 2008, 02:26:12 AM
i hated the multiple viewpoints in suikoden 3 because i became attached to chris then had to play as someone else but it was interesting.


er i know im a huge srt fangirl but theres also super robot taisen original generation for gba with different paths for ryusei and kyosuke. but the two different paths dont directly interact until about halfway through the game. theres also front mission 4
2336  The Rest / General Discussions / POLITICS: I like Ron Paul on: December 31, 2007, 12:05:37 AM
i dont really know much about him. but its unlikely id ever vote republican since most of them are against gay rights or have religous backing.

not really asuran fists hasn't aged well. i in fact sometimes prefer howling fist over asuran since howling fist and dragon kick were buffed.

Quote from: "Prime Mover"
On FF6, The GBA version is great, and cheap. Slightly better, overall, due to some added dialog that was left out of the original. The PSX version is aweful, try to avoid that if at all possible.

And, oh, I'll just state that not everyone thinks Chrono Cross is the best thing since sliced bread, I thought it was terrible and a disgrace to the Chrono Trigger name. Where CT excelled in being light-hearted and entertaining, CC becomes cynical, dark, serious, and ultimately: extremely pretentious. Just my POV, but I know others share it too.

Oh, and do pick up a Wii (or at the very least, a GameCube) if you get the chance, there's a lot of really GREAT RPGs and Adventure games out for it, and many in the works.


reguardless of what you may think CC's gameplay is solid.
