Thoughts on people who played yesterday?

I think it came out a day late or something.  Canada did anyway, I dunno.

I can really see it both ways, ideally there is a balance of both great story and great battle system in the best RPGS, but there have been plenty of games that totally enthralled me based one element or another. 

For instance - I loved Final Fantasy 9's plot, setting, characters, and the fact they simplifed the battle system, but it was just so SLOW with all of the animations, even just for the attack command, that made everything just drag.  The plot kept me glued to my seat for the duration, however. 

On the flip side, Resonance of Fate - I LOVED this games battles to no end, and fighting them out & customizing my weaons in that game became my life for awhile- the game plot however is probably the most disorganized lump of crap and nonsense I ever encountered, yet- the game sucked me in for dozens of hours. 

The plot for RoF is pretty deep, but unfortunately relies 90% on *you* figuring out the missing puzzle pieces to ID the bigger picture.  They went for a minimalist style, and it was neat to *have* to watch the two opening videos to get the plot, and even talk to NPCs for more.  ... all things considered, as unique and different as it was ...never again.  Weird how Tri-Ace works stories around.

For a game to be in production this long is almost ridiculous. It better look like real-life or something.  Shadow and Ico could be done within 10 hours... 5 years developing on 10 hours..?  I hope it's longer than that...

Man, that exam must've been rough on you.



For me: I want to achieve more in life, but at my own lazy pace.



Haha, it will be.  T-minus 7 hours.

A sort of bleak topic if you, after reading the topic, curl up in a ball, and sob softly..."noothing..."

But what is it that has you wake up and do the same bullshit almost everyday?

Draw me something!



Alright. Give me some days



The quality of drawing will vary on the quality of game.  I'm sure I saw a Hannah Montana game there somewhere.

EDIT: which reminds.  When it comes to clearly shitty games and movies that you don't need to play to find it is shitty, how the fuck do some many find financing?  How does a programmer feel to know it took a group effort to make it suck?  Sad.

Can you extend any employee discounts to me?


It's about time you bring something to the table in the internet friendship

wtf, if I recall, you sent me a PM, unloaded some pics, and said:
"MAKE ME AVATAR..NOW. PLZ THANKZ" -Yodz.

Your turn, bitch!!  Draw me something!

I spend employee discounts on ME. 
ME ME ME ME ME!!

I can't imagine employee discount making much difference after shipping it over and everything anyhow...

I am joining the Hipster clan and gonna go find my grandma's glasses.  This forum is like, so mainstream even in a non-mainstream genre...LOL.

Anyways, went to drop by restaurant job, and one of our waitresses was crying like crazy.  She just moved in with her boyfriend, and her home situation sucks with both parents (she doesn't plan/can't move back).  She may have found evidence on her BF's cell that he has been cheating on her.  Who the fuck is stupid enough to invite their girlfriend to move in with them, only to subsequently cheat on her shortly after.  I don't even like the waitress that much, but I still wanted to take a butcher knife to the idiot boyfriend.

First day of work at other job, Gamestop.  Tuesday.  Game release days.  Evening.  BRRR.  I fucking hate first day and those first few awkward shifts were youre crawling slowly up a big ass and painful hill.  They threw me to the wolves to "pick it up" under pressure.  I daresay it works, but good lord, I am pooped.

That butler's design hits all of my weaknesses at once.

Long hair even on anime guys still doesn't do it for me -- even the "hot" anime guys.  I dunno why.  I think it's that itching fact that men can never take care of long hair like that in real life; they let it grow, get strung out, then grow it as a massive comb-over when they use a massive ponytail to cover the barren patches!!!  .... sorry.  One guy is what it took to ruin long hair for me ... the fucken greaseball (I say this because he was an asshole too).

Game is shaping up nicely though.

Does being big-boned exist??  I have no idea how some girls about my age are at 95 lbs....  I like steak and all.  I'm more the type to work out than to switch to all veggie-diet (I'd eat it more if it meant smaller boobs though...hmm). x( 

Well, muscle weighs more than fat and I've noticed most girls that size can't even lift a twig. I'm quite short, yet you can count my ribs at 115 lbs.

Thank god, I thought I was alone~!!!

If I could, I would give every one of the cunts who are outside my window performing construction a pair of concrete shoes, then I would throw them off of Niagara Falls.

Spoken like a true North American...!

Going to work.  I'm tired now, and nothing like looking forward to waking up with just as little sleep tomorrow.
My doggy is sitting beside me right now though, and it's a nice thing when you're stressed. x)

Persona 3 FES, and P4 are under 20 on amazon...


Dare I?


Should I get those two or Radiant Historia?


Caution, young one.  You got pretty pissy with DDS' dungeon crawling.  
Though, I think P3fes and P4 fix most of that, the story is infinitely better (arguably not on the fes part though).  From everyone else: they'll probably say yes; I say yes, but with caution (I seem to be the only one here who rates the persona series as "above average"/10, unlike everyone elses "SUPERMAZINGFANTASTICO"/10).


I'm not sure how long the sale would last, but I think it's a deal of the day thing. I saw it via the news feed from RPGfan on facebook.


I tried my hand at SMT with strange journey and DDS1... wasn't my cup of tea so maybe I better slide on this

6539  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Aw crap, it's Pokemon all over again... on: April 19, 2011, 12:02:16 AM
This time with mid-20th century mystery-puzzle titles.

- Layton (the instigator)
- Dr. Lautrec and the Forgotten Knights (which kinda looks cool; but I am bias, Lautrec has a sick-ass 'stache)
- And now Namco Bandai's Treasure Report.

I don't know how i feel about this.... it is a blatant attempt to join in on the popularity of the series, and I love the blend of styles going into this (I love the mid 20th c. era), and I love the highly under-appreciated "mystery genre".  But c'mon? Thinking about it though, I personally find Layton boring when it comes to it's core (some of the puzzles are ridiculously stupid logic, and it gets annoying where you catch every fucking townsfolk during their mid-daily crossword puzzle they can't goddamn figure out).  I'm curious if these titles will take a more active approach in problem solving than simply pictures and A, B, C, D options.

I'm torn.

Thoughts?

I'll be honest. For all the defending I did for the game I just traded it in today; having only played about 10 hours worth. I wasn't particularly disgusted or dissatisfied with it; but with all the things I want to do/need to do during a week AT3 really didn't justify being something to waste 4+ hours on every so often. Every time I thought about the game I could simply find no motivation or desire to play it. Take that as you will.

On the contrary to ..whatever, how honourable to admit that!  I probably wouldn't; I'm a pussy like that who feels the need to save face about such things.  ...d'oh.

I kinda had that with AT2; it was good, just not enough.  I loved nearly everything about it, but the gameplay was such, such, such a drag after so long (I still have it's artbook though haha).

And yeah, the embarassing and perverted strip scenes are enough to make me avoid it.  Likewise, CDFN, for the reason I wouldn't know how to explain that shit to people other than I'm a big freak who wants an anime body pillow.
