2116  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What one RPG would you award 100% to? on: March 19, 2012, 12:48:32 PM
Planescape: Torment

That's as close to a perfect game as I ever expect to play...

Jeez, tiny people here.  I'm an XL myself.  Mind you I'm in pretty good shape, I'm just big.

If a shirt is too big you can usually find something to do with it.  But if a shirt is too small...

Played through the whole game in one sitting.  After doing that I kind of feel like that's how the game was meant to be played.  Didn't bother chasing trophies or anything, just went straight through.  Took less than two hours, but the game felt worth every penny.  This is a visual and artistic masterpiece.  I have never experienced anything like it before.  And 'experience' is the right word there.  You don't really 'play' it in the traditional sense...

My multiplayer experience was great, too.  I teamed up with somebody for a good chunk of the game.  Even without communication there's a real sense of camaraderie.  Love how they give you the names of the people you met along the way at the end.

This game is amazing.  If you're hesitating then just get it already.  There's nothing else like it.

Zero went through a shit load of changes over the course of development.

I assume you're referring to the fact that it was originally planned for cell phones since I don't know any other major changes that occurred during its development.  But if you read the post-release interviews and stuff they really give the impression that the cell phone game was little more than an idea that never really got off the ground.  By the time serious work on the game started they had already switched platforms to PSP.  Switching platforms in the very early stage of a game's development isn't that strange.  The strange thing is announcing the game while it's still in that stage.

That's what I pieced together from various sources, anyway.  I didn't exactly save the links, though.  The only one I found with a quick search was this

Quote
Type-0 was announced five years back, Kitase reminded, adding that he's happy to see it released. The game was in actual development for three and a half years, said Tabata, although there was a period where progress was at a bare minimum as he was working on a different project (The 3rd Birthday). He doesn't feel that the development was long, and wants to get to work on his next game.

Note the "actual development" distinction.

I don't know, the impression I get from Versus is less one of development hell and more that they announced it way too early and haven't actually been working on it for most of the time.  You keep seeing these stories (and I mean relatively recent stories) about how "after game X is done we're going to work on Versus", but if they had so few people working on Versus all this time then why did they announce it so soon...

And then there's the revelation S-E made after Type-0's release that development on the game didn't really start until two years after it was announced.  Before that it was nothing more than some ideas and concept art.  I get the impression that Versus might be similar.  Sure they had that trailer way back when, but that was all pre-rendered stuff, nothing to do with the actual game.

The real question is why does S-E announce these games so early?

You could just... you know... restart your router to get a new IP =/
Oh snap, the secret's out!

And let my IRC sessions time out?!  The horror!
2122  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: March 14, 2012, 05:42:51 PM
Is the voice acting for this game as bad as it seems in all the trailers?  Honestly I'm starting to think I should have just imported it...
2123  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: XSEED bringing Ys: Oath in Felghana and Ys Origin to Steam on: March 13, 2012, 10:48:01 PM
Heh, well I'm not really complaining but did he really do anything banworthy?  Unless just being annoying is banworthy...
2124  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: XSEED bringing Ys: Oath in Felghana and Ys Origin to Steam on: March 13, 2012, 07:39:09 PM
Ive counted more than 1. I wouldnt of brought it up otherwise

Either you're not very good at counting to 1 or you have a completely different definition of "anti-Steam" than I do...
2125  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Best PS3 exclusive JRPG? on: March 13, 2012, 07:35:34 PM
Here's my list:

Valkyria Chronicles
Valkyria Chronicles
Valkyria Chronicles
Valkyria Chronicles
Valkyria Chronicles
Valkyria Chronicles
Valkyria Chronicles
Valkyria Chronicles
Valkyria Chronicles
Valkyria Chronicles


OK, seriously, Totori is pretty good.  Tales of Graces f should be good too, but I haven't had the chance to play it yet.  Don't go near the trash that is Ar Tonelico 3 unless you're already invested in the series (which it doesn't sound like you are).  Anyway, there aren't really a lot of exclusives these days.  At least not on consoles.  Handhelds, on the other hand...

But play Valkyria Chronicles, really.  I know you said you didn't like SRPGs, but Valkyria Chronicles is a completely different beast from any SRPG you've played before.
2126  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: XSEED bringing Ys: Oath in Felghana and Ys Origin to Steam on: March 13, 2012, 07:23:37 PM
althought I am suprised to see such a strong anit steam feeling right now on here

It's like you're in another dimension, trying to participate in a discussion happening in our dimension, and all we're getting are half-sentences.

Meaning alot of responses I am reading seem anti steam for some reason

You do realize that all of those responses were by the same user, right...
2127  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Journey - thatgamecompany's new title on: March 13, 2012, 03:55:02 PM
Definitely getting it.  It's short enough that I might even violate my current moratorium on gaming for it.

Yes, a game being short is a feature for me these days...
2128  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Next Inazuma Eleven Series is About Time Travel on: March 11, 2012, 08:52:33 PM
NA probably won't get it anyway :/

We didn't get any of the Inazuma games :/ So sad. It's because Americans hate soccer.

And yet Americans liberally use the term "soccer mom."  The social contradiction of that amuses me.

The term actually fits quite well.  Soccer may not be popular at the competitive level, but as something for suburban parents to ship their gradeschool kids off to to get some exercise?  It's very popular.
2129  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Ass. Creed III on: March 11, 2012, 05:39:01 PM
It's just ridiculous when you have a revolutionary war movie in which everyone is speaking like they're from modern-day london.

That's what people have been trained to expect.  They would complain if it was anything else.

Media caters to the lowest common denominator, not to the truth.

Just finished watching The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya. It was a bad idea to watch this movie, but I'm surprised by how long the story of this series is with the novels and all that though.

Why was it a bad idea to watch it?  It's a great movie.
