2581  The Rest / General Discussions / The Pulse of the RPG Gaming Community (Wii / 360 / PS3) on: July 03, 2007, 07:38:42 AM
games aside its as simple as this. wii is loli jail bait. xbox360 is a big muscle guy that looks ugly and ps3 is a hot japaneese chick.

in all seriousness even though i champion gameplay i believe in rpg's graphics are possibly more import than they are in any other genre. simply due to the fact that many times you will be watching on screen attacks that you commanded. ive never liked xbox so it would neeed a phenominal rpg for me to consider one. something like valkyrie profile 3 would have to announced as being exclusive to it,or a new SRW game. wii just has no interest for me,and its image is offputting to me. ps3 has some hot shit in my mind. ffxiii and a new level 5 game :o plus non rpg's like dmc 4 and heavenly sword.

to make it short and simple i like mainly rpg's and fighting games and the ps3 is likely to have more of both. meanwhile the xbox is chock full of fps wich is a genre im not a fan of.
2582  Media / Single-Player RPGs / any modern rpgs/soundtracks like Parasite Eve etc.? on: July 03, 2007, 12:09:16 AM
i gotta sound like a fangirl by now but theres super robot taisen/wars original generation 1 and 2 for gba they both either take place in present day or the not to distant future. and imo has really nice upbeat music depending who you attack with :o and both games are published in the states by Atlus lol.
2583  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Front Mission 5 (USA)? on: July 03, 2007, 12:02:07 AM
front mission was pretty difficult as far as srpg's go. its almost like super robot wars without seishin. so i wouldnt be suprised if the drop in price was from a lot of people trading it in. i liked FM4 but never finished it because i lost interest near the end of the game.

Anyone here who knows me (or still remembers me) can tell you that it's pretty impossible to offend me, personally. I just don't care to see sophomoric behavior and the degradation of a perfectly viable topic. Not that it's my job to police these boards--old habits just die hard.

i normally don't get angry like that but this was something that built up over time with people saying i am bitching every time i don't like something.

back on topic i can think of a few games where making things more complicated actually made the game worse than its predesessor(sp?)

i understand what you are saying about stagnation but thats not what im talking about my beef is series that make big changes after only one installment(xenosaga1/2,FFX/FFX-2) you dont need to reinvent the wheel until it starts to wear out. also that crap about appealing to a wider audience pisses me off because it often results in making the games worse. not to mention shining tears rips crap from shining force such as Anri/Neige,behemoth/dark dragon
2587  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Soul Calibur IV on: June 29, 2007, 09:39:51 PM
SC3 was disapointing only because a couple characters such as sophitia were breoken and the tournament mode AI was also broken. i just hope setsuka returns. the only character i hope doesnt return is night terror he joins the ranks of cheap fighting game bosses.

edit:after watching the video i hope they either release it in arcades first or have updates to the game via xbl and psn
2588  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Blue Dragon for both NA and Europe in August. on: June 29, 2007, 09:31:43 PM
the problem with short games at least for me is that i'm a marathon gamer. so if a game is only 20 hours long i can knock it out in 1 weekend witch in my opinion is NOT 50-60 dollars well spent. its ok if the main storyline is only 20 hours long as long as there is some worthwhile unlockables and/or bonus dungeons ala VP's seraphic gate. as for blue dragon... the art direction blows. and from what little i've seen all the characters look like kids.
2589  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Bioware to develop Sonic RPG for the DS - WHAT THE HELL on: June 29, 2007, 09:23:08 PM
i actually thought sonic riders was fairly decent,however in my opinion sonic is one of those series that makes absolutely no attempt to grow up with its audience. also i think theres some things that sega does better with sonic than nintendos does with its series. example since sonic 2 sega has continued to introduce new and interesting characters,meanwhile mario still has mario as the only playable character,same goes for zelda. i keep holding out hope maybe one day i'll see a female incarnation of link.

The Wild ARMs games started out with three party members, shouldn't you be happy they went back to their roots? :/

i'm never in favor of a series taking a step backwards unless its a situation like xenosaga 2 -> xenosaga 3. also i think 3 member party's are fine if theres only 3 playable characters. in my opinion it was particularly bad in FF7 since one of the bosses sticks you with a random party effectively punishing you for only focus'ing on a few characters.

Dade i'm not trying to say ffxii should of had ffx's battle system. however had ffxii had ffx's battle system and say removed the tag in/out function thats where i would have a problem
2591  Media / Single-Player RPGs / if it's not broken dont fix it... on: June 24, 2007, 06:37:19 AM
why does it seem like almost no rpg series can follow this one simple rule? i just read that wild arms 5's party count was reduced from 4 to 3. wtf? while this upsets me i'll still play the game. plus ffx-2 is most likely a much worse offender.
2592  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Things We Hate about Star Ocean 3... on: June 21, 2007, 12:25:37 AM
2 things


and something that tends to be in all tri-ace games enemies that are so difficult you are better off running away than fighting them however its made worse in SO3 when you have to break a huge chain because you accidently ran into a soochie on the top floors of sphere 211.
2593  Media / Single-Player RPGs / My Favorite Part About Idiotic Fanboys. on: June 21, 2007, 12:11:51 AM
i admit it im a huge pso/u fangirl... as for ToS.... a huge part of ToS theme in my opinion was racism wich is something i easily relate too. its all an issue many rpg's that include it tiptoe around it or dismiss it by the end of the game(see FFX) one of my favorite rpg's of this era is probhally arc the lad: ToS. another thing a like about ToS is Raine and Presea. even though Raine is the the token female healer she is not prissy or weak minded unlike Sophia who i want to stab in the forehead with a railroad spike(and whos VA also made me dislike Alicia in VP2). Presea owns for being the party powerhouse wich is a role usually reserved for males.
2594  The Rest / General Discussions / GameFan and other game magazines on: June 16, 2007, 01:04:09 AM
i was a huge fan of gamefan and egm back in the day,but i dont really like egm anymore because they pander to casual gamers now.(Jen called star ocean 3 and ToS uberhardcore jrpg's)also other stupid things like complaining about a lack of save points in valkyrie profile. i dont like game informer because they seem to favor american made games and ever since they tried to defend GTA as satire lol............ yet i have a subscription to both magazines due to vip deals at gamecrazy and gamestop.

There's also the factor too that wasting time to flesh out an online experience harms development of the single player game.

I've never played an online RPG that has a decent story. I don't think they exist.

i have,can you guess what it is?
