2566  Media / Single-Player RPGs / weird hand gestures on: February 18, 2007, 11:09:01 PM
this is something i first observed in skies of arcadia but its popped up in various rpg's since then. since ive only seen it in jrpg's i wonder if people actually talk like that in japan because those hand gestures are kinda weird :O
off the top of my head i recall seeing the weird hand gesture while talking in skies of arcadia,phantasy star universe and xenosaga 3 but im sure its happend in other rpgs too.
2567  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Xenosaga Episode III: Also Sprach Zarathustra on: February 18, 2007, 04:06:35 AM
ive been playing this game over the past few weeks and whiile i think the story is quite good and thought provoking(at one point i likend the U.M.N. to the internet and wondered if they were trying to say the internet is evil) it baffles me that over the course of 3 games they couldnt craft a fun battle system. the ES battles are fine and fun but the normal battles while no where near as bad as XSII are still bad. whats the point of knowing turn order if theres little you can do about it? in FFX knowing turn order was helpful because you could kill or incapacitate a monster before its turn. in this game you can break monsters but as you get farther into the game that becomes less helpful because chances are you wont be able to kill the other monsters before the broken monster recovers. several times i just got mad and said fuck this and just used Erde Kaiser to break all the monsters. why does the game still punish you for changing party members mid battle by sacking your turn? master skills should always be active instead of require an exuburant 99 ep to activate. they dont even last the whole battle. butmy biggest complaint about this game is.....MIYUKI IS AWESOME! a perverted collete how come she doesnt join your party on a permanent basis. who cares if shes a shion clone as soon as disc one ended i knew shion was gonna do something stupid.

Code:
i deffinately DID NOT hesitate to smite her when given the chance i finishing striked her ass XD


so far my favorite moment in the game was the final showdown with margulis. the music in that battle was so great i didnt want it to end.

i dunno i thought DQ8 was pretty oldschool thats one of the reasons i hated it. i hate battle systems that just force you to trudge through and push your resources to the limit in between refill points like *cough*xenosaga3*cough*

also thanks for the info pertaining to mass effect and blue dragon . both sound interesting but i still have issues with the graphical style of BD.

out of curiosity...am i the only one that just doesnt care about blue dragon? visuals that look like dragonball dont exactly inspire me,and thats basically all i know about the game. however what could get me to get an x-box 360 if they makes games similar to knights of the old republic. i got to play the first one this summer when i was house sitting for my brother and i enjoyed it a lot.
2570  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Growlanser Generations...opinions on this title. on: February 15, 2007, 11:48:35 PM
i think its crap. i recall  a stage where some big guys shoots a laser so you have to anticipate when its coming way in advance because of how slow the guys move.
2571  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Valkyrie Profile 2 - Silmeria on: February 15, 2007, 02:33:52 AM
valkyrie profile is one of those games thats made artificially hard if you dont understand the mechanics correctly. even understanding the mechanics it has one of the hardest last bosses ever. i highly recommend getting toughness and first aid asap. i also reccomend removing Alicia from your party asap.... shes an ok character but god do i hate her with a passion.

Personally, I think that RPGs are going to become incredibly niche in this generation, just like they were quite some time ago.  Only the absolute geekiest of the geekensteins will care about them.  I think that games are becoming more and more mainstream and the game manufacturers are going along with this.

So I don't think that the 360 will be God's RPG Machine, nor will the PS3, nor will the Wii.  We will probably have a few games spread out over the new systems like in the SNES / Genny era, but I don't believe we will have any "solid" RPG machine.

Unfortunately.  :P


if that happens i will probally be a very sad panda especially if you consider what happend to fighting games after dreamcast.

Short answer: No. Most of the Idea Factory games are low-budget remakes of existing current/old generation games. The same counts for Tengai Makyou ZIRIA and Super Robot Taisen OX, btw. So those games are nothing to be excited about. And quite frankly, Blue Dragon's sales in Japan did not really impress me at all. Sure, the game managed to sell more than 100,000 copies and pushed units, but the 360's sales performance in Japan so far has been as bad or even worse than even the original Xbox's, despite better third party support.


hasnt the ps3 already outsold the 360 in japan? so i havent been impressed by lost oddesy or blue dragon
2574  Media / Single-Player RPGs / XenoSaga series: Need advice. on: February 11, 2007, 02:42:00 AM
i disagree i just finished disc 1 and i'm still rife with confusion. in XS2 i quit at the battle with
Code:
sergius
and i feel like i missed a lot.
Code:
mainly i feel like i missed something important between ziggy and voyager

 disc 1 was a massive head trip for me. i really hope disc 2 actually lets me play the game some but theres also still a lot of questions to be answered.

i really wish miyuki was playable longer. she's one of the most refreshing female characters i've seen in a while.

@Alisha-You really should sign up to Shoryuken.com. It's a great forum for fighting game fans. You'll find everything you need there.  Even match making to find people to play in your area. And in my opinion, it has the best general discussion area of any board I've been to.


thanks i'll check that out.

i think it depends what type of person you are. if you are an explorer type i can see why you would be more interested in scenery. i'm more of an adventurer/fighter so i'm more interested in my characters  and the monsters they intereact with.
2577  Media / Single-Player RPGs / How many PC RPG Fans are there? on: February 09, 2007, 08:06:34 AM
one of my biggest problems with pc rpg's has always been the art direction. but as a female the character design is a much bigger problem. it seems with my limited experience that western pc rpg that developers make little attempt to include characters that appeal to female gamers. just because im a lesbian doesnt mean i like girls fighting in metal underwear.
2578  The Rest / General Discussions / Non-RPG interest. on: February 09, 2007, 07:44:01 AM
my primary interest before i got into rpg's(the first rpg that really got me into them was shining force 2) has always been 2d fighting games. unfortunately ever since the death of arcades the volume of fighting games has declined signifigantly wich has lead to me feeling lost in the current gaming era. back in the dreamcasts prime i was buying games almost weekly,but now i barely buy one game a month. if the  US ps3 lets you play ps2 imports i will probally start snatching up a bunch of fighting games that were never released in the states. melty blood,the rumble fish etc. ive recently taken some interest in games like devil may cry 3,but i mean what is there really in that genre? just devil may cry and god of war,maybee zelda? i have absolutely NO interest in FPS or war sims wich makes me feel incredibly lost in american made games.
2579  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Rogue Galaxy. on: February 09, 2007, 02:08:33 AM
i could of gotten this game a few days ago but i got xenosaga 3 instead because it was 10 dollars cheaper. but now i wonder if i shoulda gotten this game instead since xeno3 is more like an interactive movie than an rpg :/

i agree with hidoshi and think it's cool. plus rosenqueen is a reference to the shops in disdaea 2.
