i'd say it's not warranted. of the decent rpg's i've played recently that did not come from the east one was a ripoff of final fantasy X(lord of the rings third age) and the other three were all made by bioware. knights of the old republic imo is the best western rpg series ever. i love the fact you can make your own avatar without sacrificing the story. i think the true threat comes from companies like the one that made god of war. not ubi soft or rockstar.
2552  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Which monsters do you enjoy to see the most in a RPG? on: February 01, 2007, 05:30:35 AM
in ffxi there was these rat beastmen i really liked. they were the only  beastmen that dont aggro but the thief ones when you fight them they will drop bombs at your feet then haul ass away from you. while this may not sound interesting on it's own imagine it in the context of a mmorpg where you will be lucky if they dont come back with a link. suicide bomb goblins were always fun too unless you were a pld. i generally frown on cute monsters in rpg's. i like sci fi and fantasy not disney. plus if you ever fought a sootie in star ocean 3....then you know cute monsters suck. in phantasy star online i loved the Sinow Line of robots. every monster in monster hunter owns because i've been a dinosaur freak since i was a kid.

sorry to bump but theres something i'm kinda curious about. was super robot taisen OG for gameboy advance even considered for strategy rpg? or did it slip through the cracks? most people probally dont even know it's out.

sonic is not grasping at straws but the gba sonics are 2d and supposedly good.
2555  The Rest / General Discussions / Games Radar: Top 7 series run into the ground. on: January 27, 2007, 01:45:34 AM
i'm gonna disagree with tomb raider because in my opinion it never had anything to lose.

not sure what to say about megaman the series has always been hit or miss but megaman X7 was definately it's all time low,however the battle network games i've played i found enjoyable.

i totally disagree with viewtiful joe unless you factor in the horrible anime. but i'm the type thats always been content with more of the same.

cant really comment od dynasty warriors but samurai warriors added a lot more than any of the DW games.

ok therest is grasping at straws.
2556  Media / Single-Player RPGs / So, what makes a game an RPG? on: January 27, 2007, 01:26:46 AM
to me a important part of any rpg is some kind of character growth. not emotional but statistical. i have not played TP yet but zelda games largly lack this. in most zelda games if you are good enough you could beat the last boss with your starting three hearts because your attack never improves and neither does your defence(you would think through out his journey link would learn some new sword attacks or become more proficient and powerful with his sword?). games like zelda and metroid create the illusion of being an rpg because the games lock you out from portions of the game until you aquire so and so items. if zelda is an rpg then why is the entire megaman series not considered an rpg? or even metroid?

Zelda 2 is an rpg.

2561  The Rest / General Discussions / interesting article on american vs japanese games. on: January 21, 2007, 04:01:11 AM
at the very least this article gave me an understanding of why people like games like grand theft auto. but im curious how i picked up the mannerisms of japanese gamers when i was born and raised in america. i fit most all the explanations they gave of japanese gamers. ask me what i want for dinner without giving choices to choose from and you will probally get a blank stare.

this is kinda weird though because FFT would have to take place sometime after or before FFXII simply due to the presence of airships in FFXII maybee balthier will replace cloud? cloud was pretty worthless in fft outside of finishing touch. then theres the whole deal with the summons. isnt Zodiac the only summon to appear in both games? i wonder if they will adjust the weigraf/velious fight to make it less punishing. i suppose they could make an elaborate side quest like the ones for beowolf,worker number 8,and reise that awesome dragongirl.

its been over a year since i played it but i seem to remember the wolf colossi in the mayanish temple giving me fits. other than the flying one i also enjoyed the one in the desert since it requires you to use the horse. there was also this one that goes underwater with you on it that i thought was pretty cool.

in valkyrie profile 2 my party in the bonus dungeon currently contains the following powerhouses.

Code:
Lenneth,silmeria.hrist,and brahms

one of the greatest moments ever in video gaming for me it least. is when you fight that bird-like colossi. i was like zomg speed! i also find it amusing that the 2 colossi that are probally the hardest are also the smallest. i'm unsure of these camera angle issues you speak of but it could just be that i'm more forgiving,because i also remember people complaining about slowdown but i recall no such thing.
