Yea, sorry I snapped Dade.  I was having a very bad day when I posted that, and unfortunately your post also triggered one of my pet peeves--I can't stand it when people make claims that openly defy logic.

So, once again, sorry.

that avatar makes it almost impossible for me to take anything you say seriously.

the only problem id see here is the amount of time it would take to download modern games vs going to the store and picking it up. to give you an idea i recently downloaded disc 2 of valkyrie profile because i lost mine when i moved and iirc it was 21 winrar files taking aproximately 30 mins for each file on cable.

no offence but how the hell do you go from ToS to ToL graphically? and on that note TotA looks sexy.

I'm not much for 'soccer' or any other major sport besides hockey although I might watch the odd Baseball game if i'm bored. I just don't understand it I guess but I find it incredibly slow-paced and boring.

I always think of the Simpsons episode where the announcer is freaking out even though nothing is really happening. "holds it.....Holds it.......HOLDS IT!!" and Homer lamenting that he'll kill himself if Portugal doesn't win.

Might have been a slap in the face for football fans but you gotta admit is was pretty damned funny.

what the fuck? hockey is just soccer on ice. i played soccer as a kid but never really caught on to it.

Each of the games seem to take place in different versions of Filgaia.

(Though I suspected at one point that perhaps 1 and 2 connected.)

There's a reference or two to WA2 in 4, but for the most part, it seems that they just might be little *wink, wink* sort of things.

WA4 also references WA3 because before you get the the sandship you pass through the ruins of baskar.

Disregard my e-mail about this post; I didn't know I had received a comment invitation.

Anyway, this has been "disproven", so to speak. Apparently, someone at GAF made it up, and 1Up saw it and believed it.


This IS false, and has been proven false for several days now. This is so goddamn frustrating how this spreads like this. Journalistic integrity, people!

The person who fabricated this rumor at the GAF Boards has already admitted to making it up. Rawmeat, please, for the sake of truth, acknowledge this with an update to the news story, before yet another rumor-that-has-already-been-proven-false spirals out of control.

That being said, I fully expect to see Ridley in Brawl, and wouldn't be surprised by either Bowser Jr. or Wind Waker Link. But again, this rumor is FALSE, and has been proven false at the GAF boards.

(The comment is at the bottom of the page)

I'll have a look on GAF to see if I can find the supposed thread.

i get some infos on test vp2

9/8/8/9 (34/40)

VP2 review tidbits: Graphics rock, combat is deep. Game is tough, not enough tutorials (haha), steep learning curve. Feels like a very well crafted product. Basically each of the four reviewers all felt the game was really hard and the learning curve was steep so it took them some time to get used to the game.

Dengeki PS2:


- There are tons of secrets and finding them is awesome
- In true VP tradition the areas are horizontal scrolling so even though the backgrounds are really detailed and pretty, you can't interact with them
- The game's action, puzzles and combo-heavy battles feels very much like VP
- The combat has a high learning curve and can be confusing at first
- The game is pretty damn hard and sometimes unforgiving
- If you spend time figuring out the game, you can find tricks and weaknesses that make even hard boss battles much easier
- Tons of characters, so managing equipment can be a pain
- The camera view that changes between movement and battles can be pretty confusing
- You can skip special attack animations in battle

Let's not forget the most important facet, is the fact that this "minigame" does not equate to giving the player a form of convenient transportation ( something that has been a standard in almsot every other MMO on the market). Instead, it's yet another distraction  to create yet another distraction (racing) in a game comprised of distractions - having lost player direction and "fun" since the release of Chains of Promathia.

Aht Urghan is a promising new expansion, but SE's habitual release of incomplete content in a retail package leaves much to be desired, especially after the year we had to wait to have CoP completed, and hated almost all of it.

Dio's right, most of us have grown up and expect alot more from the gameplay experience in the MMO market, and that's an arena FFXI has failed miserably to adapt to.

define conveinent. you have chocobo's ,airships,and outpost warps. Aht Urghan introduced a new town. Al Zhabi, surronded by exp camps that are literally 5 minutes away thanks to the warps used for assault. and these camps are better than any previous ones(2 minute respawns).i'm a monk and id rather go to these camps than king ranperres tomb. to top it off al zhabi has everthing you could ever need. every crafting guild is present,a jeuno linked AH,and theres even an npc that will warp you to jeuno for free. ask any current player and they will probally tell you ToAU is infinately better than CoP was. I've tried WOW and i cant put my finger on the reason but i hate that game. i just couldnt get into it. maybee its the art derection heh.
