2626  Media / Single-Player RPGs / FFIII comparison on: November 09, 2006, 09:26:41 AM
Quote from: "GeekyDad"
I'm only commenting from what I've learned thus far in my own reading about the game, having not played the Japanese DS version etc. But from what I understand, the characters have been given more backstory and personality. Also, there's been some balance changes to the various jobs, so as to encourage players to use more than just the Sage & Ninja classes by the end of the game. Of course, the music has gotten a make-over as well.

I think in the end though, we're supposed to get the overall basic experience of the original Japanese FFIII.


to add a bit more about the job system:  it's more balanced and user friendly i guess you could say.  All jobs should be a fairly viable option to use at any point in the game.  I guess on the NES version some of the jobs sucked royally and some were too strong making it moot to play anything else.

I think all of us could look past it better had it had online playability: Seriously, who here wouldn't at least like to give it a go or two online?


I would absolutely buy it if it had some form of Wi-fi ability.  One of my best friends for about 7-8 years growing up is always 3 hours away at school.  I always used to game with him and I'd love to be able to do that again.  He was even talking about us playing the game together but it's just not possible without any wi-fi connection.  I am pretty disappointed.  Hell even the new Pokemon DS has better wi-fi capabilities than this game.

Yes...that was a close election...BUT....it was also a record turnout for votes. Yeah everyone should vote if they are capable, but in all honesty....if you dont have the time or energy to read up on the issues and the like...then you SHOULDN'T vote.


I agree 100 fucking percent.

Take my roommate for example.  "My dad's a democrat, so I just vote democrat straight down the line."

It pisses me off.  I have nothing against any party, but that kind of voting is ridiculous and to be frank, I'd almost rather people like that not vote.

Name (if you don’t mind providing it):  Wes
Online/Screen Name:  Akanbe / AIM name is in profile
Age: 22
Location:  Pennsylvania
Profession:  student.

1. What MMORPG’s do you play?  World of Warcraft

2. When did you first start playing MMO’s? 2004.

3. How many hours would you estimate that you’ve spent playing on MMO’s?   500-700 total

4. On average, how many hours per week do you spend playing MMO’s?  10-15

5. Do you think playing MMO’s has altered your ‘real’ life, be it a positive or negative change?  The only negative thing that happened was that I spent less time studying.  My grades may have taken a small hit, but not a big one.  My social life didn't change all that much because when I first realized I picked to play an online game over real life friends, I removed myself from that [game] situation.

6. What are your views on real money changing hands for items inside the games, for example, someone selling their high-levelled character on eBay?  It'll always be there.  Someone can always profit off a lazy person.  I don't think it's an ethical way to play, but it's their money. (kinda reminds me of micro transactions)

7. Do you think that playing for as many hours as some people do is unhealthy?  Yes.  Not only is it unhealthy physically but socially as well (socially, it depends on the person imo).  Communicating via a PC is very different than real life communication.  I also remember on a specific WoW realm forum post about a college guy trying to get to Grand Marshal PvP rank.  He made a .jpeg file which showed two things: his character (finally in his GM gear) and an email reply from his professor which told him the chances of him passing the class is zero because his grade average was so low.  Also one of my real life friend's friend had to drop out of his university because of WoW.  Now because of WoW he's at a community college instead of the rather good university he was at.

8. Finally, would you say you play MMO’s to escape the troubles of real life?  When I was first introduced to WoW, yes.  I had some relationship troubles and WoW helped me forget about that.  As for escapism, I don't think any other offline game could ever do that to me.  After I got through the relationship troubles, I just played for fun or to relax from a long days schooling - not escapism.

2631  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nintendo DS recommendations? on: November 02, 2006, 12:23:11 PM
Quote from: "Britton"
And does anyone recommend the DS screen protectors? I hate scratches on my screens... does the stylus scratch the screen at all? I see Nintendo doesn't make official/licensed screen protectors for some reason, and I've heard some of the third part screen protectors leave a gummy/sticky substance on your screen. I'm just trying to decide whether to get these or just use the stylus directly on the screen.


Search for Hori screen protectors.  Those are the best ones when applied correctly and shouldn't leave a substance on your screen.  They may only be available through import.  Supposedly if you want to avoid getting dust in between the screen you need to let your shower run on hot for awhile so all the steam brings the dust to the ground, then apply it.  I never got one because I don't have a steady hand and I'm sure mine would be crooked or have air bubbles.

As for games, I only have two at the moment:  Kirby's Canvas Curse and Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow.  Both really fun games depending on what type of game you're looking for.  Can't go wrong with Kirby no matter what though imo.  I don't much about the rpgs on here besides the mario one(s), but FF3 should be pretty good.  I know I'm looking forward to it.

Wells here's my list of recommend games for the DS:
...
Osu Tatakae Ouedan(worth the import, playable w/o japanese)

It's a sad day indeed to see him go.  I think the Price is Right name is so embedded with Bob Barker that they should stop producing more when he retires.  I doubt it will happen, but it'll be interesting to see how long the show continues after that.

I've been playing Disgaea 2.  I enjoy the battle system and am liking the game a lot overall.  I'm on chapter 7 where things are picking up story wise.   Story is so-so so far and some of the things don't make sense to me (in a "what?" sorta way).  

I've unlocked a good many new classes so far.  They're more of a pain in the ass to level up than what I remember from Disgaea 1.  However I am liking that each class DOES have some class specific moves to make them a bit more unique than the classes in Disagaea 1.  There are some returning classes, but thankfully they got a graphical update and look nice.

Finally.  I knew as soon as he posted here it was going to be the habeus thread all over again.

On topic, I didn't read much of the article, but I agree with what other people said.  Intolerance is bad.  I really don't like it when people push their views onto other people (unless asked).  I don't ever really offer up my views on any pressing issues because I know people often don't want to hear it.  If it's a discussion of the topic, that's a different story.

"...Throw in the fact that the main character [Squall] is the freaking poster boy for MySpace, and you get a game that literally sucks the fun out of anything within 10 feet of the Playstation you're playing it on"

HAHA.  I really didn't like FF8 much.  It had nothing to do with the story itself but more or less the gameplay really bothered me.  I haven't played the game since it came out, but iirc i really hated the draw system, junctions, assigning summons, upgrading weapons, etc.  I played other FF's before seven thankfully and I don't think I was being a jaded gamer, i just really didn't like some of the system parts.  To be honest, I wish I still had the game because I wouldn't mind replaying it now.  I wonder if I played it now if I would still have the same gripes about the game?

As for Chrono Cross, I was probably expecting more of CT for that game.  Again, I haven't played CC since a month or so after it was released but I can remember a few annoyances that bothered me.

It's the nature of the game.  In my guild it's hard to get a group going for anything other than 40 man stuff (at which point everyone goes freaking nuts trying to get in).  Hopefully post-BC that won't be an issue. :p


With the cap being lowered to 25 man for raids, wouldn't it just get worse?

I have no idea what race / class I'll be because i'm fairly uninformed, but with the recent news of the Burning Crusade being pushed back till January, i'm looking for something else instead so I can play it over Christmas break.

I'll be on.  The game looks sweet.
