2657  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.

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.

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: "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.

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.

if it looks at least as good as FFVA i'll give it a shot. the originals graphics were way to pixelated but i dont mind the look of FFVA.

also i havent played ffxii yet its on my backlog because i'm obsessed with valkyrie profile 2.

lol i like to pretend ffx-2 doesnt exist.

i'm hesitant after trying some of level 5's previous works, namely both dark cloud games and dragon quest 8. in all cases the games failed to keep me interested. a lot will depend on how enjoyable the battle system is.

i beat valkyrie profile 2 today! the character that can join you in the last battle if you fufill a certain condition is just badass. this is the best rpg i've played since vp1. now its time for my second playthrough :D there is a quote after the end credits that makes me think tri ace has plans for a third game.

The Destinies mend rifts in time as Man etches fate anew.
While another future awaits on lenneth's wings.

this was one of the hardest boss fights i've ever done. it's on par with some of those from Final Fantasy XI. it gave me that sense of anticipation where the battle could go either way and you just wait and hope in despair and hope it goes your way.

Quote from: "Ramza"
I posted months ago that FFV Advance also had the "attack its weakpoint for massive damage" quote in it.

And I think Raze's spoiler-text about sums it up. FFV isn't a very deep or serious game for starters, and if they wanna have a more light-hearted translation on a handheld port, I'm all for it.


while that may be true i love character building wich ffV has a lot of via the job system. its one of the few FF games where i welcome random encounters. if ffx-2 didnt let you change jobs in battle i might of liked it more.
