i love meta game stuff. in fact that phrase reminds me of a game i loved in high school. magic the gathering. if you really delved into and abused the item creation system money was in short supply. if you knew what you were doing you could make a godly metal pipe.

The thing I can imagine with the Wii is that, because of the controls, it would likely be more of an action RPG, with controls more akin to the Tales series or even Star Ocean....you get what I mean anyway.

So, basically, what you're saying is that because of an ADDED FEATURE (remember, developers don't have to use the motion sensing, and many don't) RPGs aren't going to be epic on it? I'm sorry, but that's a lame excuse.

If you don't care for the Wiimote Nunchuck setup (which I find extremely comfortable, btw, even as just using them as normal controllers), developers can program for the Classic Controller and even the GCN controller, which are pretty close to the PS3/360s controllers (I would argue that the GCN controller is better than the DualShock).

Also, action RPGs have become just as epic as turn based RPGs, as of late. I spent 90 hours on Tales of the Abyss.

do you actually believe that? its even been shown recently that nintendo forces peoples hand,and they have a history of doing it.

anyways im gonna be honest here. outside the fact that i dont enjoy FPS or most non sports american games in general so if 360 leads this generation that represents a change. and im very slow to accept change. in fact i didnt buy a ps1 untill the saturn import scene finally died.

oh and nice wall of text up there eusis.

whether the device worked perfectly is not the point. exploring fucking sucks unless there is some type of reward. nothing pisses me off more than being stuck because i cant find out where to go next. and if you think it wasnt worth it all i have to say is lol......even at the end of the game i could easily spend all my cash upgrading weapons and/or armor and the statues were a nice source of cash.

i actually kinda liked the evolution games when they first came out on dreamcast. but by the time words came out they had aged and thier novelty was gone.

segment breaking fails unless a reward for doing so. example star ocean 3 rewarded the player for exploring each map. however it doesnt have to be that obvious some dungeons have nice treasures if you stray from the path that leads to the goal. also guys dont forget videogames are entertainment before they are art. one of the more artistic games imo shadow of the colossus barely has a story but is still highly entertaining. also these themes you speak of most likely fly right over most gamers heads. when i was playing valkyrie profile 2 i wasnt thinking of any themes. heck i dont even think of them in a game like crono cross,but i do love connecting the dots between CT and CC. i can be quite content accepting things at face value.

i like any villian or group of villians that are not inherently evil to the point where if you were put in the same situation you might join the villians team.

yeah i posted that after only reading the first paragraph. i think the last adventure game i played was full throttle many years ago when i had a mac.
2439  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Fantasy... on: July 07, 2007, 04:01:22 AM
i just read the first paragraph and lol'ed so he likes slow skill'less games with story?

edit while i didnt like the first paragraph the rules were quite good.

good golly miss molly that is a massive wall of text.

On the flipside, RPGs are highly underdeveloped in their ability to inspire us and force us to think about things.

i dont want them too last time i checked video games werent al gore's medium of choice. i wanna be like ZOMG did you see that damage! i doubt a videogame is gonna convince someone that racism is bad or that being a homophobe is wrong though i dont think any rrpg has even attempted anything on that front. you know there was this point in xenosaga 3 where i was asking myself. do i really need to know about kevin and shions past?

i was reading about OG2.5 on gamefaqs and boy does it go out with a bang. i love the inclusion of D originals also. i too hope atlus brings this over they could even remove the voices all together and i wouldnt care. even though it would be quite amusing to hear some of the hot blooded females voiced XD

Its very unlikely Sony will catch up hardware-wise any time soon, if ever. They know their bread and butter, and that was  Blu-Ray as a long term profitable venture and using the PS3 to push it. The price barrier is just too high, and not enough games are coming out for it.

Japan IS Nintendoland, no doubt about it, and I guarantee you the PS3 will never catch up there. Ever. Sony has a good chance in Europe, but with GTA4, Halo 3, and the better versions of football games being released on the 360, it won't capture the casual jock crowd of the US. And don't underestimate sports games, remember it was those games that helped the PS2 beat the Dreamcast in the times of old!

after your comment about dreamcast i disreguarded your entire post.

also E3 is coming up next week so that will be very important.

i think shining tears is great if like me you have a high thresh hold for repetition and have someone to play it with.

theres also phantasy star universe, 2 baulders gate games, 2 champions of norrath games. ive only played one of the .hack games but at the time i played it i found its combat to be inferior to phantasy star online(is was the first game in the series that i played).  hmmn could valkyrie profile 2 be considered realtime?
