sure if you consider a girl thats been playing games since the nes days NOT a hardcore gamer. in my opinion a game without violence is incredibly boring(as an example it would take me about 5 minutes to get bored of tetris unless im playing against someone). but i guess it kinda depends on your definition of violence,i mean even a game like mario party has violence. however if your talking about the type of violence that appears in games like GTA then yeah i agree with you there.

wow the comments about that keynote were more entertaining than the actual keynote. i'd like to ask miyamoto if he even cares that nintendos new direction is alienating people.

while i was looking for it i stumbled upon this:

if theres any truth to that nintendo clearly doesnt learn from its mistakes.

on my local news they said that the nintendo guru at the gdc(miyamoto im assuming)said that they need to make more happy games that can appeal to more people. and something about violence giving games a bad repuatation. and that would be the final nail in the coffin.

*goes to look for a more credible source than her local news*

i think of the xenosaga series more as being interactive novels than videogames. those games give you the impression that they were far more interested in telling a story than presenting a fun experience. all they had to do is plagerize ffx's battle system and character battles would of been fun. because it almost seems like they didnt want battles to be fun to the point where people start skipping the story to battle more.



now about Fun. i think thats a very objective term. i think FPS are retarded because you get no sence of acomplishment that you can build on the next time you play. yet many people enjoy FPS greatly. obviously they must or x-box would of tanked long ago. own and enjoyed my gamecube but i detest the wii. to me it just seems like nintendo is saying to sony and microsoft. here you can have all these hardcore gamers we are gonna dip into the casual gamer crowd. we will even help you out by repelling the hardcore crowd. i've believed this ever since i heard an interview where nintendo said some people are intimidated by a controller but nobody is intimidated by a vcr remote. if nintendo really wanted to try why arent they handeling stuff like starfox and f-zero in house,and why dont they try to invent new franchises that can appeal to people that like metroid zelda and starfox but maybee ceased to care about mario long ago.

seems 1up is down keeps timing out for me maybee ill try again tomarrow.


edit:scratch that it loaded now. ill ammend my post after i read it :o

edit2:ok i thought it was stupid do these guys even play their own games? they seem kinda clueless. a real life rpg would be boring because it would be hard to keep the player entertained. you cant exactly fight bullys every 10 steps.i think some of the posters here have better ideas on how to make good rpg's than these guys.

the problem with ffxi's customization is that you can very easily gimp yourself on the liscence board. also since the game imho foolishly doesnt use the job system it just feels like a watered down version of ffxi's battle system. i molded basch into a paladin theres just one problem! there no provoke! wich leads to other characters inexplicably getting hate for no reason. right now ashe for no appearent reason gets massive amounts of aggro with her ninja sword even if i strike the enemy first. in my opinion ffxii's battle system is inferior to ffxi's. oh AND.............








FFXII IS HOME TO ONE OF THE MOST BULLSHIT BOSSES IVE EVER ENCOUNTERED IN AN RPG!

FUCK YOU ELDER WYRM! i seriously went through close to 20 phoenix downs at that boss,and in order to have that many i had to farm!! IN AN OFFLINE RPG I HAD TO FARM WTF? mist knacks are incredibly broken too and not in a good way its beyonf me why they drain your mp to 0 and mp is your lifeblood in this game.


while i do think RG is better im sick of the characters yelling my name queing me to let them heal. while i'd like to complete both games i fear i might not be able due to various annoyances.

um i played through the original valkyrie profile about 10 times. theres so many characters and unlike vp2..... each one is unique. i played through xenosaga 3 twice because i wanted to check the alternate skill paths and i missed a lot of sidequests and such in my first playthrough. typically theres 2 reasons i'll replay a game
A.nostalgia
B.gameplay

currently playing rogue galaxy final fantasy 12 and shadow hearts ftnw.
havent played RG since the event with MIO. in SH FTNW i just did some sidequests and am about ready to head to las vegas.
in Final Fantasy 12 i just beat Belias afterter he owned me 3 times i had to use an elixer so i could do a second quickening chain. im wondering if im doing something wrong in ff12 because its hard to raise money for new gear when a lot has to go to phoenix downs and hi potions. i tried to fight some rock turtle and got my ass kicked. it was like fighting genbu with 3 people. man this game makes me kinda homesick for FFXI.

i'm not that far into the game yet but that prissy robot reminds me a lot of C-3PO from star wars. i just got to the but where you see MIO then get thown in jail..... i never thought i'd hear someoneone say O-M-G outloud.
also ive seen the gameover screen one to many times.

Quote from: "GrimReality"
I don't understand all the love for this series. I played through about half of the first game and had to stop. While the settings are great, that godawful judgement ring completely ruined the game for me. To leave everything up to chance button presses just completely turned me off. I can see using such a mechanism for bonus type stuff, but not for the whole game. UGH.


its not chance it's skill or technique if you will if you got good at hitting the red spots like i did you were rewarded greatly. there was even accessories that increased the size of the hit zones. plus im pretty sure part 2 had an auto mode but using it removed the red areas from the circle.
