oh, I forgot, this board doesn't like a challenge and just wants a good story. >=/

I play Dark Souls everyday, your argument is invalid.

I generalized so I can be a jerk.

I'd actually argue thats where a lot of love for the Tales series comes from.  At least they're consistent releases (more or less).

Personally, I hate how lazy and poor the developers became as well, what with all this switching to the handheld systems.  And I guess while we eat-up celebrity gossip like a drug, the Japanese love their shitty girly games (Hatsune Miku sing-a-longs, IdolMaster, and whatever bizarre dating-sims or social games).  While the Vita will be great for forcing Japanese to up their quality, it's obvious they've been overshadowed.  WTF is Capcom doing these days anyways besides fighters?  I'm hoping Dragon Dogma turns into their next big thing, but without more press on it it's turning pretty gray on the radar for "who gives a fuck".

Your guys distaste for this title has left it sitting on my shelf for over a year now-LoL.... Everytime I finish a game and am selecting another, the general attitude of this forum quickly ushers me past Star Ocean 4.... I am however currently nickle and diming a playthrough of First Departure and enjoying it...

Most of us don't mind SO1 and SO2 nearly as much as we do So3 and So4.  I think that's somewhere around 80 points!

Duuude... SO1 was crap.  The PSP one anyways.  It was CLEARLY half assed, and the Millie sprite was obviously a redraw of Rena's from SO2.  It did nothing different, and I'd argue the SNES title did more for gaming.  Mt Metox was actually a really pretty and flowery mountain... the PSP version made it a big brown rock.  Could you ask for more generic artstyle too?  I said earlier that the Item Creation system was a direct import from SO2, just changing some items around.  The game's extra's are easily beaten too.... oh, I forgot, this board doesn't like a challenge and just wants a good story. >=/



Hey look, Ranma Saotome made a cameo!!  Good grief.  I was annoyed with SO1...

There was nothing about SO1 that impressed me beyond the realm of "it's like SO2"...sometimes too alike.

IMO Star Ocean the Last Hope has what is the most "complete" feeling battle system of all the titles.
- The First Departure was broken, they direct-import the item creation system (what a rip) and without a proper new difficulty, the game was way too easy
- Second Story was great.  It did become really easy to exploit the skill system to do mass amounts of damage, and some stuff was pretty easy to miss.  But hey, to this day the endless debate of Opera/Ashton wages on.
- Till the End of Time was the first really tough Star Ocean, and I loved it for that.  It was easy enough (till the final boss) to get through SO2 without item creation, but this one made you use it or die trying without.
- Last Hope was a great battle system, but did have character balancing issues (magicians are pretty useless in the SO universe, but this took the cake).  The game was difficult, but the battle system felt really good. 

All of you whiney bitches who just want a story, deal with it or just don't play... but IMO, you miss a really good hit at some quality RPG gameplay to make up for it.  Excuse a story for once, hell, a lot of you did for FF8.  At least these games had some sort of character building, something that can't be sad for half of the RPG roster which offers up mindless grinding.  To each their own.

All games are ROLE-playing games.

:D

The rest of the OST so far has been pretty nice, I did a youtube tour of it.
I can't say I care for the vocal tracks, but even the good ones from The World Ends With You didn't sit well with me.
6142  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: December 14, 2011, 12:04:07 PM
This is why I only take extended breaks in the Winter. Sometimes in the middle of the Summer, too. Because I am the only one at our office that does what I do, if I leave during a busy time all hell breaks loose. I come back to a bunch of salesmen asking questions and needing bids done ASAP. During the Winter, I generally come back to what I left. Maybe one or two things to do, but not much. I'll be off between Christmas and New Years, and there will be no worries about work piling up as most everyone else is to. We always wonder why the owner doesn't just shut down for a week like most landscape companies do.

I'm sure this why like half the world wants to become a teacher.  Summer's off, woooo

Final day to study for exam.  I couldn't care less... I'm soo so so drained by this point. 
I can sum up most of this semester this way: A waste of paper.

If only I had NTSC region consoles!

If you're looking to sell the Atelier Rorona & Totori art book, how much would it be?

You hit my "prized treasure" list; offer enough and it can be yours.


:O I want this inside my body and stuff. So awesome.

Make an offer and it's yours.... to do... whatever... with. >:S
6144  The Rest / The Bazaar / Re: Dice's Artbooks & Games Super Sale on: December 14, 2011, 02:37:21 AM
You should add that all books ordered will smell like a girls bedroom, a realm unexplored by many a RPGfan

I had too, you usually troll my seller threads



I'll just call that Polski for "Good luck, Steph!"

Made a relevant edit at the end of first post; thank you for pointing that out Yoda.
6145  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: December 14, 2011, 02:25:50 AM
I think the game[play] looks pretty stellar so far.  I'm probably gonna tune out every cutscene... or watch it only to end up curdled up like Steven Hawking and drooling at the mouth.  But gameplay wise, everything looks pretty oh-kei to me.
6146  The Rest / The Bazaar / Dice's Artbooks & Games Super Sale on: December 14, 2011, 02:17:22 AM
NO LONGER UPDATING.  MESSAGE IF YOU WANT ANYTHING, I'LL SEE IF I HAVE IT STILL.



Here ye, here ye!
Come one, come all.  Dice is broke, and is selling her gaming wares!!
A Christmas treat for thee?  A new gift to bring in the New Year?  
Come down, take a look!

Price's are negotiable to a certain extent, just PM me with ye offers.  
Ordering from the Northern Americas is highly appreciated, however a small toll extra for those outside, I'm afraid.  Still!  No harm in looking.  Picture available upon request as well!
Shipping is now a small fee within Canada, add a bit extra for the States, and we can work out whatever outside of the Am'rricas. (cut me slack, I've been doing it free for a while, and I actually lost quite a bit of money doing it this way).

The Ultimania for the kind-of Seiken flop: S4.  HOWEVER.  The artwork is above average, and especially if you're into that story-book look, and the bright colours beautifully seen throughout the entire series -- have this, there is a section devoted to all production work and promotional work.  Only $10 because it isn't a proper artbook, but contains all of the goods of one.

-Star Ocean: Till the End of Time Artbook - $20
More than an artbook, also contains an amazing Encyclopedia-like section of the Star Ocean UNIVERSE.  Sadly, in Japanese.
Sold! Thank You!
-Wild Arms Alter Code: F Artbook - $20
The PSX remade classic got it's own artbook.  A much fresher take to the crude anime in the PSX version.  Great artwork of all aspects of the game.  The Guardians are especially lovely.
-Symphonia  Sold! Thank You! The [Free] Artbook that came with Tales of Legendia for PS2.

The sad thing is I would have used Sarah more if her voice didn't want me to hurt people.

Same with Lymle.

We can't forget Edge too

"EVERYTHING EVERYTHING EVERYTHING!!!!"


Ngh, this game.

Please, it was a throwback to classic 90's game voice acting.
6149  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: December 13, 2011, 10:21:05 PM

Also, Chocobo theme in FFXIII-2. I, uhhh, wow.

I'm happy to burst your bubble; there are three Choco tunes.  "Crazy", is sadly one of then, but "Groove" and "Rodeo" are the other two.

C'mon, don't hate, we all now how embarassing the Japanese love being. :P
