2641  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.

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.

2647  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.
2652  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Which monsters do you enjoy to see the most in a RPG? on: January 17, 2007, 08:24:01 PM
i just fought 2 hilarious enemies in valkyrie profile 2.

Dog Alicia and Dog Hrist.
HAHA! i was laughing to hard to concentrate on the fight when dog alicia said
"I'M PLUMP" theres other dog monsters too but the mention of thier names would be spoiler material for some of them.

Quote from: "MonCapitan2002"
Quote from: "everluck"
They both wind up dead, IIRC. Can't recall if they killed each other or if Delita commits suicide, though.

I don't remember any reason for it at all. I've finished the game multiple times, but that's one thing I've never been able to figure out. It's just a huge "WTF" moment.

Hopefully the remake reconciles that.

The PSP re-release is a port, not a remake.  All they are doing is adding some CG cutscenes and character classes.  It is still essentially the same game.


neither term is appropiate.

calling it FFT 1.5 or directors cut would make more sence.
its a shame fft and ffta/ff12 arent the same ivalice would of been cool to see references to agrias or something. technically i guess ffta and ff12 aren the same ivalice either. it would be coolif you could run into ritz or marche.
2654  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Which monsters do you enjoy to see the most in a RPG? on: January 17, 2007, 02:18:11 AM
the following monsters fail!
any non humanoid non elemental monster that can cast magic. LOL@wolfs casting poison!!!!11

any monster that can revive heal or spawn more monsters

valkyrie profile 2 has all of the above :/

monsters that poison you suck too especially if the poison stays on your after battle hence making it far more lethal to you than it ever will be to a monster. resulting in psychological warfare.

moving on...theres this monster in shadowhearts 1 that i call the monster that slaps you with it's penis because thats what it does. it has a penis and slaps you multiple times with it. frankly i'm amazed something like that didnt get censored even though it was abstract. i also thought those garden soldiers you fight in FF8 were pretty cool. at least i dont have to question thier ability to use magic.

i'm resistant to the idea of learning spanish because i hate how accomidating companies here are to spanish speakers. i doubt if i went to japan that there would be an entire channel dedicated to english speakers,or english language menus' etc. i know a few german words because i have german ansestory and mom has this picture on her fridge of her grandparents grave that says vatter and mutter(sp?) my girlfriend is japaneese so i know some japaneese if its spoken or written in katakana but not a lick of kanji.
