I think the graphics were fantastic, SNES or not. How old they are might matter more had 2D not died just a few years later. Personally, I can only imagine the graphics of those two games being considered better from an artistic and/or subjective viewpoint, as from a technical viewpoint, they certainly aren't better, PSIV's cutscenes exempted.


for me it might of had more to do with the actual attack animations. i guess after playing shining force 2 they looked too cheesy for me and far too pixelated. clearly the snes was capable of better. out of curiosity was ff6 the last FF game to have a female lead before ff12? perhaps if i had tried ff6 right when it came out instead of after playing crono trigger and seiken densetsu 3 i would of felt differently.

i remember trying this game back in the day and thinking to myself. wow shining force 2 has better graphics than this. one could argue ps4 does as well. graphics aside the intro was pretty impressive for its time. i think i stopped playing after i got out of the cave where the moogles help you because the graphics were to crappy to keep me interested. i mean didnt this game come out after crono trigger yet they stuck with those pixelated mess of sprites

I made a new character a few chapters into the game. Of course he's useless as is, so I'm trying to level him up. What is the best way to go about that? Should I have him soloing low levels or something?


This strategy becomes a lot more effective later on in the game once you open up a power leveling map, but it'll work for where you're at now, as well.
I'm not sure if it's the best way to go about things, but it's the way I did it. Go somewhere where your strongest character can one-hit the monsters in the area, and perform team attacks with the weaker party member (just have them standing next to eachother). It'll split the experience 50/50, but chances are that killing higher level monsters as opposed to soloing weaker ones will be more beneficial.


tower attacks will work as well.

about valkyrie profile 2. chapter 3 was a massive borefest but it ended on a good note and chapter 4 is made of fucking win. events from both games are starting to intersect. Hrist/Ahly is easily the prettiest of the 3 valkyries and im starting to understand her true motivation.

i just want to clarify something about GTA. its not the game itself or its violence that i dislike(although i think it sells WAY better than it deserves too) it was when every game starting trying to copy its open ended gameplay that i started to get mad. heck you could even make the case that ffx-2 fell victim to this curse as well. i like my games to have structure. i get bored fast without it.


also dios what you just posted further illustrates nintindos unwillingness to take financial risks. thier whole online is a fad BS with gamecube was their way of saying. we dont want online because we dont think we could make money off it. regardless of what i've been saying i will get a wii eventually just for smash bros brawl and the new fire emblem,wich along with starfox and metroid are the only nintendo franchises i give a rats ass about.

Fuck me, Valkyrie Profile 2 is hard as hell.  Every time I hit a new area, I get repeatedly trounced.  I've never seen anything like it.

I just cleared this place filled with lightning from above and poisoned water below.  I struggled through that place for 45 minutes (it's like ten screens big :P), then stepped foot in the next area and got fucking murdered.

I think it's time I went back to WoW. :P


yeah i found that too. it seems like a lot of dungeons lately the sealstones are stacked against you,but by the time you get to the boss you can make sealstone setups that make the boss a cakewalk. in that place i put a stone in a dias that make enemies attack with earth element. plus i left the lightning blessing in it's dias so all the enemies attacked for half damage and you get a lot of earth protection gear there. btw chapter 3 is way to fucking long! :o

im currently playing valkyrie profile silmeria 2 and disgaea 2. it seems like everytime i get someone cool,i get someone even cooler a few dungeons later. like i just replaced Celes with Circe. and in disgaea 2 ive spent more time in the item world than in story mode because im obsessed with unlocking all the character classes. so far the mage knight seems uber.

oh and about VP:S alicia makes me want to pull my hair out except when silmeria is taking over. i hated that voice in star ocean 3 and i still hate it now.

i agree with eusis even though devil may cry 3 is closer to an rpg than zelda i would have nothing against it being under action rpg. in a way its like you level up everytime you beat a boss and get another heart. but for just console rpg no way. next people will be saying metroid prime is an rpg. =o


edit: VP:S as action rpg? lol

at first when i clicked on this topic i thought it was gonna be about valkyrie profile then i quickly realized its called midgard not midgar like the town in ff7. kinda funny theres al;so a town called nibbleheim or something wich is very close to something else related to vp
2590  The Rest / General Discussions / Hobby versus Lifestyle and the monies involved on: December 31, 2006, 11:03:30 PM
at one time i refused to accept first shift jobs because of the effect it would have on my game playing. a lot of people i play witrh are on the west coast so yeah... i'd say its a lifestyle for me. while 500-600 is a lot i think its worth it for the games im gonna get to play. especially since i dont play pc games. i have more of a problem with dumping money on a hdtv than i do a new console.

i don't dislike the wii because of the controller. rather im afraid of the potential consequences for me if the wii succeeds. especially in my opinion after what i feel was the negative effect that the GTA series has had. i've seen information that points to nintendo trying to capture a more casual audience with both the wii and the DS. if wii succeeds whats gonna stop the eventual trickle down effect of companies copying what worked for nintendo?
and if im a fangirl of anything its phantasy star. had psu come out for wii and 360 and instead of ps2 and 360 i'd in all likelyhood own a wii right now.

what caught me off guard is how a system with potentialy one of the worst launch lineups ever is garnering so much popularity.


http://www.gamerankings.com/itemrankings/simpleratings.asp

Twilight Princess is ranked at 14.

Which games above that were a launch title? Halo? Pft....that game is an overrated piece of shit.

Yeah...shut up.  Nintendo always wins at launching.


soul calibur was a launch title coinsidently dreamcast probally has the best launch lineup in history.


I'm going to go ahead and just quote someone here...

"I've never read anything by Alisha that didn't immediately make me want to kill myself and her."

Can you PLEASE just GTFO? You fail on so many levels that even Bubsy 3D is making fun of you.


i love you too. just because my opinion does not coincide with yours i fail? nice. i also fail to understand how my previous post called for that reply but oh well. as someone who plays fighting games and rpg's almost exclusively is it really that hard to understand why i dont like the wii? and in turn why i would not want it too succeed.
2593  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Disgaea 2 on: December 31, 2006, 12:26:56 AM
something i think is worth mentioning that the sprites for disgaea 2 apear to be redrawn after using the same ones for all previous nis games. the characters look bigger and more animated.

what caught me off guard is how a system with potentialy one of the worst launch lineups ever is garnering so much popularity. all during christmas break my brother was trying to convince me as to why the wii is great and i just dont see it. also its not that i think the controller is stupid,its that i fail to see its potential applications in the type of games i like without changing them to fit the wiimote. i just could not imagine a game like psu with the wiimote. currently theres 2 wii games i'm interested in and both use either a gc or classic controller. i think i'll pass on trauma center i dont think ive ever fully enjoyed a game that didnt involve some kind of violence or competition. heck even when i was young tetris bored me within 5-10 minutes.
