2416  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Final Fantasy 3 has all the charm that so many RPGs miss on: April 15, 2007, 10:45:00 PM
Quote from: "The Darkrider"
If by "charm" you mean "outdated game mechanics that would have been doomed to oblivion years ago were it not for the tendency of older gamers to look back on the games of yore through rose-colored glasses and lament the long-gone days of monotonous level grinding to artificially inflate playing time through sheer repetition", then I guess it has charm out the fucking ass.


thanks for stating what i wanted to but couldnt quite put into words. when rpg's started healing at save points they basically are saving you the trouble of using tents or whatever. i think thats one of the reasons i hated DQ8 since basically the only way you could fight a boss fresh was too warp back to town heal up then run from every encounter till you get back to the boss.

thanks i think i'll stay away from ff3 now. what you described is what i like to call artificial difficulty. developers instead need to come up with innovate ways to make games challanging instead of cheap tricks.

Quote from: "Dincrest"


Any RPG that utilizes a card battling system is frustrating for me as well.  I'd like to rely on skill rather than luck of the draw, thank you.

.


uh sure some luck is involved but deck building is a skill.

sorry nothing compares to fire emblem. nothing like a character you like getting 1 shotted by a boss or unit that traveled its maximum range to hit you and forcing you to restart the whole map if you want to keep that character. the super robot wars games can be bad sometimes to thanks to the enemies fucking hax accuracy.


Me:WTF they had a 15% chance to hit!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*throws gamecube controller at the wall*

Me:WTF trump card missed with an 80% chance?

when was the last time nintendo created a new franchise that can appeal to those that like zelda metroid and starfox?


The "Brain" franchise?  Big Brain/Brain Age have sold insanely well, and hold appeal with the casual as much as they do with the hardcore.

Nintendogs?  Same deal.  Animal Crossing, to a lesser extent.

All of those titles have hit the million+ plateau.


the games you just mentioned are exactly the threat i speak of. the first time i played metroid prime i played it for 4 hours straight but games like brain age and nintendogs cant even keep me entertained for an hour. my concern is that if nintendo becomes number #1 via these types of games more traditional game types will start to be phased out in favor of those that appeal more to casual types. ive already seen the copy whats successful effect generated by GTA whats to stop that from happening here?

with the mini cd's i wasnt refering to the cost but nintendos control over them. and the failure to grow up with its audience... when was the last time nintendo created a new franchise that can appeal to those that like zelda metroid and starfox? as i said before i hope nintendo fails because it represents a threat.

im suprised they didnt mention gamecubes mini cd's since the concept there was probally the same as with cartidges. they also should of added nintendos utter and complete failure to grow up with its audience.
2424  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Why not: all time favourite RPG on: April 10, 2007, 11:45:31 PM
until recently it was valkyrie profile lenneth-psone version however it has recently been overthrown by super robot taisen OG2. 2d orgasms all over the screen and i just love the feeling that many of the characters are actually friends. too often in rpg's the party members just seem like aquantences(sp?) that will go thier sperate ways after the journey.
2425  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Grandia III review... on: April 10, 2007, 02:37:29 AM
something i think you need to consider when reading a review is reviewers tilt, wich i can usually discern from reading a review. for me i play rpg's for the gameplay so i would rate a game with a great battle system and an average story much higher than a game with a fantastic story story and average battle system. from your posts here so far i get the impression that you value story above all else.
2426  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Super Robot Taisen OG2 ROCKS! on: April 07, 2007, 02:12:13 AM

About time a female cast member doesnt use a rod.

Did you play WA3?

Edit:
Quote from: "Eusis"
Who are you kidding, practically no one whose playable dies in JRPGs anymore.


Everyone dies in
Code:
Digital Devil Saga 2. And they don't do a Grandia because they're not actually resurrected.


yes WA3 was my furst WA game but im not sure of the relevance of you asking me this.
2428  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Super Robot Taisen OG2 ROCKS! on: April 07, 2007, 01:22:00 AM
i cant believe im the only one that thinks this game is made of win. seriously even OG1 destroys fire emblems for one of my favorite SRPG's of all time. and barring a disaster OG2 will probally dethrone the original valkyrie profile as one of my favorite rpgs ever. maybee it will get more attention if the ps2 OG gets released here. i guess im just a sucker for 2 sexiness.
2429  Media / Single-Player RPGs / a feature all future rpg's should have is..... on: April 07, 2007, 01:12:38 AM
if you like multiple battle themes SRT:OG1 and OG2 have lots
2430  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Super Robot Taisen OG2 ROCKS! on: April 02, 2007, 04:42:00 AM
ever since i put this game into my gameboy player i cant stop playing. i keep telling myself i'll stop after this mission but then something awesome happens and i keep playing. i find the story actually quite interesting too. plus im sure to be playing through this game a second time due to the branching paths the follow different characters.
