6451  The Rest / General Discussions / Game-opinions no one else agrees with. on: May 16, 2012, 01:09:33 PM
I good topics and I'm stealing them....

What are some of your more uncommon opinions about gaming??
We all have them, probably one of the main reasons we are able to debate here the way we do.

- Dragon Quest sucks.. lots.
- Turn-based is old and out-dated (unless it's changed up a bit...I like the spin titles like Radiant Historia added, or the speed and tweaked mechanics of FFX's).
- Motoi Sakuraba is one of my favorite VG composers (ranked among a few others, and even if he DOES rip himself off)
- On the other hand, Nobuo Uematsu is overrated.  Granted, he is good... but its pretty much only HIM and Nintendo getting orchestrated concerts.
- I think Tales of the Abyss is in my favorite video game story ever.  Luke one of the most human/best developed characters, and Ion as an NPC.
- Mario games have lost their touch.
- Skyward Sword was a terrible Zelda title.  Twilight Princess being one of the best.
- Zero Suit Samus looks stupid and ruined whatever air of mystery to Samus (and long wavy hair > mushroom head and ponytail).
- FF5 and 6 deserves a remake more/before than 7.
- Chrono Cross is a good follow-up to Trigger (while I thought the plot was top-notch, the writing, like a lot of titles of this time, was terrible), and the battle system was great too! Granted, I still think Trigger is outstanding as well.
- Tri-Ace is one of the best video game developers (although, I hear their latest Japan-only efforts were below par... here's hoping they come out of it, and Japan will finally gracefully move on from the PSP soon).
- Persona games... meh. Really? People like scaling one dungeon every night?  On that note...
- Dungeon crawlers do little for me.  Took Dark Cloud 2's bright fantasy colours to make me happy. And on THAT note...
- Level-5 is terribly overrated aside from a very, very few select tiles.
- WRPGs automatically earn one less star for being so...uncreative and essentially being Tolkien-rip-offs time and time again.  This is not to say they games are bad -- but creativity goes a long way with me. =(  Ohhh...elves and dwarves... again.
- Mario Kart Double Dash is one of the strongest racing games made (...mainly for the Co-op element...)

PS: Ashton, don't change the avvy.

Besides that I couldn't help but wonder how hot she'll be to justify it.

I wonder how to keep plots fresh nowadays.  Seems like a lot of the good ideas have been used in destroying the world in creative ways.

Famitsu interview with Hideo Baba [Tales producer]:

The new game’s catch copy is: “Are you prepared to destroy the world for a girl?” This is related to the game’s story and battle system.
It is a mothership title (this was already known).
Until know, the series has beeen known for its “high fantasy,” with swords and magic, however, this time it aims to explore the world view through human civilization. It’s “modern and inorganic.”
“It’s a new world, you’ll compete in this story.”
“Of course, we kept in mind the sense of a Tales game, but the next stage that we are taking Tales to was a challenge.”
“Besides this title there are others under development. We’ll debut new content to everyone on June 2nd, look out for it.”

The first point is especially curious.  Sounds like you might be a sort of anti-hero for that one.
6455  The Rest / General Discussions / Games you've basically "Memorized" on: May 16, 2012, 12:13:47 AM
Some games are worth another go.  Some worth a few more than just two runs.  What games do you know the ins and outs, the dialogue or layout, the items and secrets... all that jazz.

Mine quickly (and off the top of my head kinda):
- Star Ocean 2. Even down to the nitty gritty of "what NPC to talk to to advance the story" and the items and all that.
- Valkyrie Profile is also another one. The items, puzzles, equipment, characters... I admit I do double check the requirements for the A Ending since they're pretty fucking ambiguous
- Zelda Twilight Princess for the most part. No puzzle really stumps me and I know where extras and all are located.
- Final Fantasy 6, fucking Squeenix, remake it you bitches, why do you ignore this one?!!?!?
- Hoping to add Final Fantasy 9 soon, I'm doing a pretty perfect run thus far.
- Res5 is there as well since I played multiplayer with it with a few peeps (not many good co-op games these days D: ).
- I'd say a Tales game -- but I don't think I've ever 100%-ed the Collection Book. But I do have them pretty damn well mapped out otherwise for what's important.

Poor dog.
After watching this and that Ideon vid you posted (grusome; the corpse and the man-eating fish and the missle to the head kid were probably the two best).... old anime scare me now.

Coolest Iron Man outfit ever.  Seriously -- no, it's not cardboard made.

Cat-cat singin' the blues.... I was surprised.

Putbull hates baths. Too cute.
6457  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: May 15, 2012, 01:19:08 AM
I'm going to drive to where Klyde lives to get a tattoo. Picking up Akanbe- and Mesh along the way.

I'm never chatting you again. >=(
6458  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Forget everything you knew about Tomb Raider! on: May 15, 2012, 12:32:17 AM
Forget everything you knew

One step ahead of you there, buddy!

I think the same every time this thread gets bumped.

For the umpteenth time I'm more pissed, angry, and manic than I've been in a month. Why does it always seem like nobody else gives a shit?

Because no one likes pissed, angry, and manic folk?
What shall we give shits about -- what's troublin' ya?

I wanna find a new job.  One of my buds is leaving, and the new Gamestop policies have turned the job to Communist Russia (and we're a stupid busy location, if it's not Toronto's EB reeling money, it's ours, so head office looooves paying us a visit).  Now me and one other girl are non-closers (i.e. less responsibility fun-ployees), and everyone who is a key-holder will judge us even if we're in between tasks and tell us to get busy.  If one of us is caught slacking, the key holder that night gets written up too along with us, with only one strike to get it.  What the fuck.  I want out.  I hate how they make it feel like it's our fault for shitty sales this month -- not our fault Prototype 2 was one of the "big listing" titles this month.  Not many people are too eager to spend upwards to $70 on an 8 hour game.
6460  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently watched Episodes of TELEVISION BOX offerings! on: May 15, 2012, 12:05:23 AM

Argh... been meaning to find and watch the old Batman series.  I don't remember the action much though, and an opening is a bad way to relate the rest of the series.  But... yeah, I remember good things at least.

I didn't get the GoT ending this week.  The corpse was odd?  My attention sort of drifts in and out for the episodes while I do other work... =/

Mad Men was pretty good, Betty wasn't too annoying.  I actually like her as the "ex-wife", and Megan as the wifey.

No more New Girl till next season. D:
6461  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently Viewed Movies Episode 2: The Vampire Bites Back on: May 14, 2012, 10:54:21 PM
Yodes: Road to Perdition is probably in my Top 20 list.

Lightning's Story "Requiem of the Goddess" trailer

Thanks to PlayStation HK we now have the first trailer for Lightning's Story: Requiem of the Goddess. -- Source: Nova Crystallis

Hmm..  This is hopefully cheap, as far as I could tell, you fight Caius only (multiple forms don't count), or gives story deets.... or hell, I may just watch it on YouTube, save some pesos.
6463  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: May 14, 2012, 01:02:43 AM
Naaww man.  Chronic.

6464  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Key Developers Leaving Square Enix… on: May 14, 2012, 12:12:38 AM
I agree actually...
But to answer your last point:

I don't know how popular it is in Japan.

IIRC, it ain't.
6465  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: May 14, 2012, 12:03:39 AM
I need some roach in the worst way.

As it stands I drank cheap tequila last night and my head feels like it has sandpaper in it

I had a headache then too... worked wonders.

The Good: We ate at a place called "Hockey Sushi" :D
The Bad?: There is no "hockey" at "Hockey Sushi". >=/
