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.

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.

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
6171  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.

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.
6173  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.

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).

-UDON's Art of Capcom - $10
A collection of ("official") fan art done for several Capcom titles.  Mostly Street Fighter, good for those enthusiasts.

Contains a great collection of official images and lots of production sketches.  Mostly artwork, a section at the back details the world.
 Sold! Thank You!
-Persona 4 Artbook - $25
Contains all characters, alternative versions, sketches, promotional images, all of it.  Great artbook, especially if you're a fan, finish your love with an in-depth overview of the P4 art and world.
Sold! Thank Yo!
-Ar Tonelico II Artbook - $20
Nagi is awesome and IMO this game had the best characters of the series.  Lovely work.
Sold! Thank You!
-Tales of Vesperia - $15
Fujishima's production designs and sketches for ToV, similar to the US releases of the Symphonia artbook.  Features an interview at the end, though in Japanese.
-Megaman X Series Artbook (Eng. Udon release) - $20
All in English, covers the entire X-series.  Great artwork, and it's great to hear the "thought" process behind the series.  Great for X fans.  Made me nostalgic.
-Breath of Fire V Artbook - $20
Artwork from the darkest installment of the series.  Large amounts of sketches too showing alternative versions of pretty much the entire cast.
 Sold! Thank You!
-Seiken Densetsu 4 Ultimania - $10
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.
-End of Eternity/Resonance of Fate Artbook - $25[/b]
Lots of artwork: CG, sketches, world, and monster collection (a ton featured that never made it into the final game), and some pretty whacky promotional stuff of the fav-3 (Zeph, Vash, and Leanne).
[/s]  Sold! Thank Yo!
-Tactics Ogre Artbook - $40
Contains all class artwork for male and females, monster design, and promotional art.  Best of all, it contains all the artwork from the release 15 years ago!  Oh, also comes with the tarot card pictures too.

-Wild Arms 3 Artbook - $35
Everyone's favorite J-western-RPG series.  The third title contain a great motley crew, and has huge pics of all the main characters, sub characters, town characters, locations, and an in-depth look at the world.  Great promotional material artwork too, one of my favorite books.
-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.  
Good if you missed them, and I'd charge cheap, but I'd wait for an offer than give a price for something like this


In terms of Artbooks I also own: Atelier Rorona & Totori (covers the first two games art) (Sold! Thank You!), Drakengard 2 (The Last Story artist kicks major ass), Seiken Densetsu 4 & Children of Mana (Rare, OOP, you'll pay a lot if you want this from me), Breath of Fire I-V (all games covered, remakes too), Suikoden 3 (er, they never made a proper artbook, so it's a guide but with all the art needed), Capcom Design Works (a compilation of a whole bunch of their titles over MANY years), Zero no Kiseki (yup, the new "Trails" game), Soejima's Artbook for 2004-2010, and The Art of FF9 (Eng.)... these I will sell, but are also my personal favorites and will only sell... for a price.

Brings a goddam tear to my eye

Fucking right it does.  Brilliant damn work Mesh
6175  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Best Star Ocean: TLH combination. on: December 13, 2011, 11:00:43 PM
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.
6176  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
6177  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The ridiculous crap that comes out of Japan... on: December 13, 2011, 07:44:22 PM
THINGS NEVER SAID IN PEOPLE'S HISTORY:
I want to live in Japan for a normal life.


*aliens approach Earth*

Alien 1: Perhaps there is intelligent life on this blue rock....!

Alien 2: ... wtf is this, let's gtfo.
6178  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Best Star Ocean: TLH combination. on: December 13, 2011, 07:25:45 PM
I hated every single guy in the game for various reasons... wait no, let me rephrase that. I hated every character in the game.
Thus, my party was only the chicks because even if I hated them, at least they had girly parts.

Arguably, the best party is mostly chicks (Reimi, Sara, and Meracle), and Arumat looks like Lightning.

This guy's ability to draw faces is awesome.  Best pokemon thing I've seen in a while!
6180  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Best Star Ocean: TLH combination. on: December 13, 2011, 05:39:37 PM
I have replayed Star Ocean: TLH several times, and I am finding that the best player combination is Edge, Reimi, Meracle, and Sarah.

Edge can suck Arumat's scyth.

Also, this belongs in some SO topic from a year back because there are only enough SO enthusiasts here to justify only one topic.  If it's any comfort, we're as general so as to not even have one of "these types" of topics for Final Fantasy.
