2401  Media / Single-Player RPGs / if it's not broken dont fix it... on: June 24, 2007, 05:33:42 PM
The Wild ARMs games started out with three party members, shouldn't you be happy they went back to their roots? :/

i'm never in favor of a series taking a step backwards unless its a situation like xenosaga 2 -> xenosaga 3. also i think 3 member party's are fine if theres only 3 playable characters. in my opinion it was particularly bad in FF7 since one of the bosses sticks you with a random party effectively punishing you for only focus'ing on a few characters.

Dade i'm not trying to say ffxii should of had ffx's battle system. however had ffxii had ffx's battle system and say removed the tag in/out function thats where i would have a problem
2402  Media / Single-Player RPGs / if it's not broken dont fix it... on: June 24, 2007, 06:37:19 AM
why does it seem like almost no rpg series can follow this one simple rule? i just read that wild arms 5's party count was reduced from 4 to 3. wtf? while this upsets me i'll still play the game. plus ffx-2 is most likely a much worse offender.
2403  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Things We Hate about Star Ocean 3... on: June 21, 2007, 12:25:37 AM
2 things


and something that tends to be in all tri-ace games enemies that are so difficult you are better off running away than fighting them however its made worse in SO3 when you have to break a huge chain because you accidently ran into a soochie on the top floors of sphere 211.
2404  Media / Single-Player RPGs / My Favorite Part About Idiotic Fanboys. on: June 21, 2007, 12:11:51 AM
i admit it im a huge pso/u fangirl... as for ToS.... a huge part of ToS theme in my opinion was racism wich is something i easily relate too. its all an issue many rpg's that include it tiptoe around it or dismiss it by the end of the game(see FFX) one of my favorite rpg's of this era is probhally arc the lad: ToS. another thing a like about ToS is Raine and Presea. even though Raine is the the token female healer she is not prissy or weak minded unlike Sophia who i want to stab in the forehead with a railroad spike(and whos VA also made me dislike Alicia in VP2). Presea owns for being the party powerhouse wich is a role usually reserved for males.
2405  The Rest / General Discussions / GameFan and other game magazines on: June 16, 2007, 01:04:09 AM
i was a huge fan of gamefan and egm back in the day,but i dont really like egm anymore because they pander to casual gamers now.(Jen called star ocean 3 and ToS uberhardcore jrpg's)also other stupid things like complaining about a lack of save points in valkyrie profile. i dont like game informer because they seem to favor american made games and ever since they tried to defend GTA as satire lol............ yet i have a subscription to both magazines due to vip deals at gamecrazy and gamestop.

Quote from: "Lard"
Quote from: "Eusis"
There's also the factor too that wasting time to flesh out an online experience harms development of the single player game.

I've never played an online RPG that has a decent story. I don't think they exist.

i have,can you guess what it is?
2407  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Worst RPG you've ever played. on: June 12, 2007, 04:55:04 AM
wow do i even wanna touch this thread?

ill bite

dragon quest 8


its almost ironic that both games provide you with the opportunity to gimp yourself. but DQ8 made it worse by having a story that bored me to tears. ffxii's story was interesting but marred by horrible gameplay.
2408  Media / Single-Player RPGs / PC/Console separation needs to exist... on: June 12, 2007, 04:43:43 AM
Take a series of threads that arrose on Nintendo's absolutely idiotic forum regarding Metroid Prime 3. Suddenly, you see "fans" who are claiming that they'll boycott the game unless they get full online multi-player. My reaction is that, if you're asking for multi-player Metroid/Zelda/Final Fantasy, etc, you're really missing the point. 3 years ago, you'd never have seen this.

i guess thats why Final Fantasy XI recently had its 5 year anniversery. i personally think online multiplayer in games like metroid could be great. because online multiplayer and pvp can be two completely different things. in fact the possibilities there are blowing my mind right now.
2409  Media / Single-Player RPGs / The Very Saddest games... on: June 10, 2007, 11:15:17 PM
Celes attempted suicide lost a lot of its luster because of the presentation. also by that point in the game i much more closely identified with Terra,so even if she succeeded it wouldn't of meant much to me. also i dont know if this counts as a sad moment but there was a moment in arc the lad twilight of spirits where:
the game makes you chose between kharg and darc and i thought the one you didnt chose was gonna die and it was a hard choice to make
2410  Media / Single-Player RPGs / The Very Saddest games... on: June 10, 2007, 12:26:43 AM
super robot taisen OG2
when captain daitetsu dies

grandia 2
when mareg dies... omg

Rouge Galaxy
theres a moment where lilika has to see her past and she is blaming herself for her moms death. im not quite sure why it brought a tear to my eye but it did
2411  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Wild Arms series on: June 09, 2007, 06:48:35 PM
im a huge fan of the wild arms series. i got my introduction with WA3 and havent played 1 or 2 yet(but i hear anastasia is awesome) but one of the things i like about the WA series is the role reversal both WA 3 and 4 have females in a position of leadership. and in WA3 i never would of expected a big buff indian dude with a shotgun to be the party's best mage :D
WA5 is curently my most anticipated rpg since i loved the WA4 battle system.  doesn't that come out in july or something?
2412  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Suikoden General topic on: June 09, 2007, 12:10:06 AM
in my opinion suikoden is pretty medicore. i've only played 3,4,and 5 and out of those i only finished suikoden 4 and it was the one i enjoyed most. 3 and 5 lost my interest before the end but 3 kept my interest longer. however i get the feeling i would of enjoyed suikoden 5 more had i played 1 and 2. another thing about suikoden 5. its not that the graphics are bad but when the same company puts out stuff like metal gear solid and zone of enders is kinda disapointing.

just for reference:

i lost interest in suikoden 3 when
the three characters meet up to fight a red dragon or somethin

i lost interest in suikoden 5 when
lyon get injured and you have to unlock the full power of the dawn rune
2413  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Japanese RPGs you've spent the most time on? on: June 07, 2007, 03:53:49 PM
i dont know the exact time but in recent memory:

super robot taisen Original Generations 2 - 2 complete playthroughs to see all the branching paths and unlock all the secrets

Super Robot Taisen Judgement - just finished my first playthrough and for similar reasons as OG2 i will playing through the game a total of 4 times then i will get to Super Robot Taisen W for DS. SRT J clocks in at 52 chapters >_>

Valyrie Profile 2 - dual playthroughs + multiple seraphic hate completions to get angel slayer.

Radiata Stories - all characters recruited in my book.

Star Ocean 3 - tried to get all battle trophies but gave up after i unlocked sound test

Rouge Galaxy - unlocking all constumes takes some serious time :o
2414  The Rest / General Discussions / Where did the effeminate male look come from in Japan? on: June 06, 2007, 06:35:17 AM
i always thought it was an attempt to appeal to females. i mean i dont think ive ever seen a buff male in shoujo media.
2415  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Valkyrie Profile 2 on: June 05, 2007, 07:55:02 PM
i cant beleive people had trouble with that boss i beat both forms on the first go around. also it is NOT a grinder. if you think its a grinder you clearly dont understand how to play the game right. equipment and equiped skills are far more important than levels. even then fairly early in the game you can get a orb/sphere?(i forgot what they are called) that gives X2 exp.

its hard for me to give an idea because i beat the game then did the serpahic gate and completed it multiple times. i could probally beat the game now in 20-30 hours but thats with a firm grasp of the mechanics.

oh yes i <3 hrist :D
