2446  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Great pretentious crap sequels. on: March 28, 2007, 12:31:28 AM
i disagree with the people crying about phantasy star,but whatever people are entitled to thier own opinions. theres something else worth mentioning here. games that on thier own are good but are horrible sequels. chrono cross and valkyrie profile 2 being the biggest offenders. both games retcon.
2447  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Can* English Voice Acting ruins Characters in RPGs? on: March 27, 2007, 11:47:38 PM
i thought the voice for fran was quite apropiate. maybee you need to get some and um.. you know actually hear a black woman speak. there was many things i hated about ffxii but the voice acting isnt one of them. for the record i hated fran but her voice wasnt even close to the reason.
2448  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Is it just me or is SoA putting more effort into localizing? on: March 25, 2007, 11:53:59 PM
its shining force but its not a tactical rpg so i cant be bothered to care.
2449  Media / Single-Player RPGs / a feature all future rpg's should have is..... on: March 25, 2007, 11:46:38 PM
yeah thats one of the reasons i loved the kotor games.

rogue galaxy has like 4-5 costumes for each character and all they effect are elemental resistances and if one you like has poor resistances you can fix that by equiping an elemental sheild. maybee its a girl thing but i love it when games have alternate costumes. and they can greatly effect how much i can stand a character.

actually rebecca kinda looks like virginia gone wild.
2452  Media / Single-Player RPGs / a feature all future rpg's should have is..... on: March 24, 2007, 02:39:42 AM
i used the kolona costume with presea and had no problems owning the game even on the highest difficulty. rogue galaxy also has alternate costumes. i believe tales of the abyss has them as well but they are no longer attached to titles or something.
2453  Media / Single-Player RPGs / a feature all future rpg's should have is..... on: March 24, 2007, 01:17:30 AM
Alternate Costumes for all characters!
the only game i think of where it was kinda sad was xenosaga 2,and 3. its especially sad in xenosaga 3 since you cant even unlock the costume shion starts the game with. but enough of that this isnt a rant about xenosaga 3. i demand more games that let you change characters costumes!
2454  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Will you be buying a PS3 for the Level5 and S-E games? on: March 24, 2007, 12:44:51 AM
already have one. Virtua Fighter 5 is awesome. i'm thinking of donloading tekken 5 DR too since i never picked up tekken 5 for ps2 and i think it only costs like $20 to download it. i also just imported gundam musou should arrive in a week or so. being able to import any game without the need for a mod chip or anything is a huge boon to me,since a crap load of sweet fighting games came out for ps2 in japan but were never released here. and honestly i'm pretty hard headed so ps3 would have to end up like saturn for me to seriously consider a 360 in the near future. games like dmc 4 heavenly sword and ffxiii dont hurt either.

About time a female cast member doesnt use a rod.




Did you play WA4???


yeah really Raquel used two handed swords of ownage. she was the main melee force in the party.
2456  Media / Single-Player RPGs / i give up. on: March 22, 2007, 06:37:26 AM
um there is no skill involved in ffxii especially since mist chains are largely dependant on luck. in other games you can use skill and/or strategy to beat a boss even if you are underleveled. the freedom the game gives you with the liscence boards provives you also with the opportunity to gimp yourself badly.


i have absolutely nothing wrong with games being hard except when that difficulty is out of your hands. if a boss is hard for you in a game like shadow hearts3 or ffx you can employ strategy to try and get past it. but if a boss is hard for you in ffxii it likely means you have to go grind till you get stronger then come back. wich became a redundant process in ffxii that i finally got sick of.

Rogue Galaxy is coming to an end for me. since the end is near i'm doing various sidequests. i cant put my finger on why but hunting quarries is way more fun in this game than it was in ffxii. once i finsh RG i'll finish shadow hearts FTNW in wich im in a similar situation. curious to see what shanias ultimate fusion looks like but maxing all those fettishes will take some time.
2458  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Wild Arms Vth Vanguard on: March 22, 2007, 02:51:48 AM
sweet. still a while away but cool. i just watched the intro several times because the opening song is addictive to listen too. and i noticed Avril Vent Fluer has a sword :o
2459  Media / Single-Player RPGs / i give up. on: March 21, 2007, 11:39:22 PM
thinking back on this today i realized all my quaims with this game can all be traced back to various boss battles,because i was fine with the game till you hit some of those boss battles.

Hard boss battles + skill-less battle system = fail.

Whether or not you enjoyed the game, the fact of the matter still is that FFXII was accepted by the majority as a great game.  As I've said myself, the storyline and character development is a bit lacking, but it's by no means horrible.  On top of that, the fun gameplay makes up for it.  I've heard a few people complain about how FFXII "plays itself", but I think that is a really flawed argument.  I don't think it's the best FF or even one of the top 3, but it's still one of the best RPGs to come out in all of 2k6.


actually i would lump ffxi with xenosaga 2. two games i couldnt continue to play because the battle systems were horrible/boring/unrewarding. it honestly baffles me why they didnt just use the job system for this game. then again if they did that they would have to rebalance the game since if everyone in your party doesnt have curaja at the point i was at your party wont last long against bosses,looking back i was probally dying because i wasnt actively curing party members with my controlled character. and this game is very unrewarding in terms of what you get for exploring and doing marks. roughly half the license board is wothless. *points at the techniks* i never thought id see the day id be calling an online rpg better than an offline one,but ffxi shits all over ffxii.

I JUST DONT UNDERSTAND HOW THEY TOOK THE SYSTEMS IN FFXI AND MADE THEM WORSE!
