2431  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Is the localization better in Tales of Abyss? on: September 06, 2007, 10:11:11 AM
im pretty sure the localization for tales of symphonia was done by nintendo. i assume that why the ps2 version was never released here.

I'd like to think I'm half-decent at videogames, and I've had the same thing happen to me in Wild Arms 3..

Yeah, but you're not Alisa, so I don't really feel any compulsion to rag on you.

Anyway though, a lot of games are balanced so that dungeons are really an act of planning and survival, this sort of, uh, requires the 'planning' aspect to be present. Not letting you buy items would apparently take this out. This is a fact Alisa failed to mention, so that post mostly came off as, "Waah! I don't want a game where I could LOSE!"


i dont mind losing unless theres no technique to it. to give an example of what i mean. say i wipe in pokemon. more often than not its not because i ran out of potions. i can revise my strategy and try again. however in a game like DQVIII if i died it was always because i either ran out of resources or was underleveled. how dare you accuse me of not wanting something to be hard. i play tales of the abyss on unknown after all. i just want there to be a method to the madness. paper scisors rock is the greatest game ever created.

The game is also pretty tough too.  Its kidna comforting knowing normal enemies can potentially be dangerous.

what exactly do you mean by this? if normal enemies can wreck you it often leads to me running away from battles because im afraid of running out of resources.

i liked megaman network transmission on gamecube wich combined elements from past megaman games and battle network. it still has the card setup and takes place in the battle network world but at its heart is a side scrolling megaman game.

So you guys didn't cry when
Zero died in MMX?

Should I have even bothered to code that?

Seriously, though, MMX is the only one I've played all the way through. I tried to get into the older ones but couldn't, which is kinda weird since, as PM pointed out, they ARE more or less identical.

I'm actually somewhat interested in Star Force, though.

dude zero must of died 2-3 times by now.

2438  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Top 3 most difficult RPG's on: August 30, 2007, 02:39:10 AM
saying VP2 is hard is like saying playing the clarinet is hard when you havent taken the time to learn it. relatively early in the game it brutally punishes anyone who button mashes,and you cant disable the function that causes that. the punishment is in fact a reward for players that correctly time attacks.

FFX isnt hard BUT the monster arena is. i recall a monster that petrified my guys under water when they had stoneproof,and in FFX any character petrified under water instantly is removed from the battle.

heres my list.
Tales of the Abyss on v-hard and unknown
enemies on unknown have around X4 to base stats on unknown. the liger queen took me about 40 minutes of chiping away before jade showed up.

FFXII some of the bosses are total BS seriopusly they were reminding me of HNM's in FFXI

DQVIII-i found the combat system pretty unforgiving and because of the way the game chips away at your resources i started overcompensating wich ultimately made things worse.

Fire Emblem Sealed Sword-this is the one with Roy and its absolutely brutal if you play for no deaths. there was a battle were i was beseiged by wyvern knights and i still havent managed to win that battle without any casualties. even with archers my archers cant kill them all fast enough.its also the home of bullshit like a boss sitting on a castle with a brave sword and a brave bow.

growlanser generations-its been a while so i dont recall exactly what the factor was but i recall both games being difficult.

im not even gonna bother here i got some enjoyment out of rouge galaxy but got none out of DQVIII. DQVIII was an exercise in frustration. slap RG's battle system on DQVIII and i think i would have liked it. anyways white knight story looks fucking amazing from what ive seen so far. i just hope they dont rename it weisritter story or something XP

humorous may not of been a choice word but you the champion of writing and characterization suddenly talking about gameplay caught me off guard.

Will someone explain to me how "Mega Man X turned the series in a new direction"? Basically, it was exactly the same as the original games, but with animal robot bosses, and wall jumping. I'm sorry, people these days talk about X as if it was God's gift to games, but when it came out, I kept thinking that it was just "same old, same old".

You want a great post-NES MegaMan game? Try "RockMan & Forte" (effectively MegaMan 9), now THAT game had some actually original stuff in it.

coming from you this is humorous. while rockman and forte is nice its only advantage over megaman 8 is bass/trebble as a playable character.

the X series added 2 more playable characters, zero and axel. i agree with shiguma though X4 was the pinacle of the  X series though i hear X8 is good. unfortunately X7 gives me painful memories of the following phrase. "burn burn burn to the ground"

FFT battles are generally short compared to many other srpg's thats a lame complaint imo

as for me the first time i played:

FFT i didnt like it and got stuck at the thieves fort battle only once i grasped the game mechanics and the job system i loved it.

Dragon Force a similar deal as with FFT

Valkyrie Profile Lenneth while i never disliked the game it wasnt till  my second playthrough that i truely fell in love with the game.

overworlds are over rated and often lead to frustration for me. as for me ill definately be picking this up since im clearly the only person on the planet that doesnt give a damn about bioshock so im pretty bored at the moment.

can you use the classic controller for this game or does it force you to use the wii mote? i enjoyed the first mario strykers.

i used to go to gamespot when it was called videogames.com. i sometimes go to gametrailers.com because i believe seeing a game in action is far better than any review especially considering the only EGM/1up editors i consistantly agree with are che and maybe milkman. also i believe it or not gamefaqs message boards are a great source of information since you will get a lot of hardcore fans posting the latest news. since they post/translate from japaneese sites/magazine scans its info you wouldnt get from most mainstream sites.
