Sensei Phoenix, I have to agree with Neal on this one, as a human being, and as an athiest. We ALL have faith in something, faith is in inevitable byproduct of consciousness. I do have faith in science, I have faith in the inexistance of an intelligent prime mover/God. Simply because athiests like myself may feel that science is almost completely irrefutable, that is only because we have put our faith in logic. We have put our faith towards a particular universal model that can be calculated in ways we can repeat. That in itself is faith.

We athiests have become so at odds with world religions that we've come to site "absense of faith" as our differing factor. But I think we've simply redefined "faith" out of our equation.

Faith doesn't have to be defined as something "blind", faith can be defined by logic, as belief in logic is a leap of faith in of itself, even if it's a very concrete and has much evidence.

I came to the conclusion that I, as everyone else, has faith, when I realized that I was an athiest, believe it or not. I used to call myself an agnostic, but then I realized that I really did have a belief... that I really didn't think a God existed, and no amount of trying to make "everyone happy" by remaining neutral, would change that.



i have faith in nothing. wich at times leads to hopelessness.


So you're a Nihilist?

No, anyway, I don't like...  The names being thrown around in here for us "faithless" folk.  Not ascribing to a dogma isn't itself a dogma.  Nihilist, Atheist, Agnostic, Anti-Theist...  I think for a lot of who shun religion, being rounded into a category is self defeating.

The abscence of something does not equate the parallel of that coin.  The non-belief of a God is not anything like being a member of a religion.

It's like when I hear Satanists praising the good name of Satan and denouncing the name of Christ.  Subscribing to the Satanist club and subscribing to Satan is accepting and becoming a part of Christianity.  Because Satan is the parallel of the coin that is Christ.  And adhering to Satan's will is adhering to Christianity, because Satan and Hell are still part of Christian Myth.  They're parts of the same machine powered by the Bible and fueled by believing in Christ.

Satanism = The schism towards yet full acceptance of Christianity.


nah im just an athiest that deep down inside hopes there is a god. because death without an afterlife would seriously suck. i've been casually searching for a religion but let me say from my viewpoint the prospects arent good. ive been to catholic weddings where the preist basically said god created women for men,and as far as i can tell condemns my sexuality,and doesnt allow women to be preists.  i dont know much about muslums(sp?) but it appears they make the women cover up to protect them men from temptation. the only religion i currently know of that promotes equality is wicca heh...

With all of these great ideas, we should all get together and make an RPG. :P



if i made my my own rpg i would make the protagonist a lesbian and give her a romantic interest. maybe even create a love triange with a female antagonist. i grow tired of reappropriating characters.

i would like to see less punishing of the player for not partaking in extra stuff. a prime example of this is ffxii. i would also like to see some expression of characters personalities in battle. sorta like how in ff9 when garnet was depressed she couldn't concentrate to cast spells. lets say 2 characters in battle are friends and one gets attacked make the other character get angry. wich could be manifested many ways in battle. star ocean 3 did this but it was very primitive. if a character that say cliff had a relationship died  his attack would go up.

i also agree we need more new game+ but take it a step further and take a page from phantasy star online and valkyrie profile and make some items and characters only available on higher difficulties so that challanging yourself isnt the only motivation to play on higher difficulties. something else from CC i would like to see more of is team attacks. although team attacks were pretty gimp in wild arms 5. lastly no more of this anybody can be anything garbage unless its handled like FF5.

i also want to see more multiple forms of combat. for examples see PS4,wild arms 3/5 and skies of arcadia. i also like the duels in suikoden but they are too easy. its like paper scisors rock but they are giving you a clue what they are gonna use first.

arc the lad ToS is probally one of the best rpg's for ps2.

for me it could just be that when it comes to valkyrie profile im a purist. from that standpoint not much that VP2 did concerned me but this isometic view concerns me and it reeks of waah lets try to come up with a use for both screens.

cos its the same story, characters etc...

just different gameplay...

i don't think a name dictates the style of game...



actually it does this would be like calling FF13, final fantasy tactics 2. also i'm seeing a lot of people on various VP fansites also complaining that its for DS.

heres some better scans.

ug even the battles are isometric if the battle animations arent at least as good as VP lenneth i will be very disapointed. and the fact that its for DS is no excuse as evidenced by this:

2351  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Chaos Wars for ... PS2? on: March 17, 2008, 11:34:34 AM
wow i think im already sold. as a fan of SRW i'm a big fan of crossover rpg's. naikiri dungeon 3 on gba was pretty cool too. just when i was thinking that ps3 was pretty much done when it comes to rpg's.


if anyone is curious how it looks.
