It's better to have just started this thread, there may've been a megathread but a quick search yielded a ToV thread from 2008 that didn't even go for very long. Best to let it lie.

I may get around to finishing this someday, I'm sorta lost plot-wise but I can just read the summaries again.

Allow me:  It's a Tales game...You're not missing much.

I thought it was the best PS360 Jrpg.  Probably not much of a feat considering you can probably count the number of jrpgs released in the US on the ps360 on one hand.

ok.
I didn't deny that???

Story:
- Lets write a good story and let people see it from 2 different angle.
The entire first half of the game (ie; Expel) was technically and completely unnecessary seeing as how... it gets blown up anyways, and your efforts literally get destroyed.  The second half is ACTUALLY about the plot.

This is a preference, at least I think so.  I have no problem with Jrpgs that just fuck around for the start because characters are still getting developed at least.  I liked how Lunar Silver Star Story had a couple smaller quests before starting the main story.

It's more than that annoying me. 

They DO develop a sort of myth behind Expel around demons and monsters.  But with "Expel's fate" it doesn't matter.  Remember the first, maybe, third of the game is dedicated to getting those ancient writing from Cross Cave analyzed?  WELL... sure you find the fuck to translate them, after one tedious fetch quest to appease Bowman to introduce you to the linguist... but there was no resolution to what those writings meant.  Oh wait.  There is.... when the developers remembered it last minute in Bowman's fucking ending. 

Linguist-ass: "These docs talk of a paradise"
Bowman: "It must have been Nede"

OOOOOHHHH... not that it matters anymore when Nede meet's IT'S fate and Expel comes back.  Furthermore, not like this plot point can every be resolved unless you took Bowman

Like I said.  Is it good writing?  No.  It's charming.

Aw fuck it.  I give up, I'm through trying to argue this kaka.  I'm no nerd!!!!

I hate people commenting to that effect already though.  WORST ENDEING EVARRR....! D,:
Who cares.  A good game is all I need.  Most game endings tend to disappoint.


Didn't they say that FFXIII-2 had multiple endings?

I *think* what it does is open certain game parts (perhaps ending-like, on just "conclusions").  Not necessarily a new ending.  Like I said... it explicitly says, before credits roll, To Be Continued.

Everybody who I've heard played 999 says it's amazing.  $35's a little steep for a used copy... but maybe if you get an employee discount?

Funployee Discount = 15%  .... =/

THere's a used copy of 999 at work ($35 x_X ).... wondering if I should splurge.  :D

I love the title for this game, but I thought the anime opening was worthless.

Really, another sequel? I guess square was  not kidding when they said they were going to whore out Fabula Nova Crystallis

Mm.  You'll never see me complain about a sequel if the game is good.

Yay!  Stuff is being sold!  I can't believe it!! :D  ♥ ♥ ♥

Keep an eye folks, if there is something you're interested in,
come to me with a price and I'll see what I can do, especially if it is something you may be interested in. :)


Everything must go!?

Apparently the ending for FFXIII-2 is really, REALLY bad, and pushes the idea of another sequel...

I just skimmed through the ending.  It explicitly says: To Be Continued. 

*groan*  That was pretty ballsy of them.

More importantly, it BETTER FUCKING COME OUT AFTER VERSUS. >=(
Or they're just gonna cancel it's production.  I'm feeling it now. x(
7074  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Best Star Ocean: TLH combination. on: December 16, 2011, 12:22:50 PM
You need 2 mithrils, plus the weapon from the blacksmith gamgee, sharp edge. Customize it twice with mithril and you got the eternal sphere. Technically you can come across 2 mithril before nede, but you had to do some sidequesting, and pickpocketing. Course, who didn't pickpocket in SO2? Battle suits ftw!

I never understood how to get the battle suits. D:
Then I got upset and went all "Forget it!! *pout pout* I don't need that!  I can win the game without it!!! *pout*".  I know it's tricky though. :P

Don't you live in Canucklandia? It's not expensive to ship to the States?

I don't think so.  But still, I just want to avoid it with a single $10 item. =/
Ah fuck.  WHatev, but whatever I don't care. :P

I didn't understand that.  Unless you meant by the fact it'll probably be out 2014.... December.

That's awfully optimistic!

*groan*  Why are Micro and Sony getting eager to announce PS4 and X820 or whatever the hell?
As far as I'm concerned, companies suck at meeting a reasonable time frame still.

I have a theory that FF Versus probably sucked, then reality struck like a plague with the backlash of FF13-1 and 14.
7077  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Best Star Ocean: TLH combination. on: December 16, 2011, 01:37:23 AM
Technically you can get an Eternal Sphere in the first few hours of SO2, but it's almost cheating... sweet sweet wonderful boss annihilating cheating.

IIRC you had to wait for an ore or something found on Nede the earliest.... no?
That was the soonest I got it (no way did I wanna grind for skill points on Expel).

Final Fantasy Versus XIII

We're talking about REAL games here. Though I guess that's why you striked it out.

I didn't understand that.  Unless you meant by the fact it'll probably be out 2014.... December.

It's nice to have SOME idea what all those terms mean. But yeah, it's more important to regrasp the battle system.

I'm also just being a bit of a jerk.  The stories are charming enough -- characters especially. :)

Also.. I found the skits in this kinda crappy (Symphonia's were my fav).  I skipped 'em most of the time, but usually gave em a chance

Why the fuck, man....just why.  >=(


They're cute, aren't they?

Maybe it's in bad taste, but since I had nothing better to do (digging in the dark is hard), I've been looking at the website of a rabbit shelter. I'll get a new one after Christmas (some rabbit shelters are closed now, because they don't want to end the animals to end up as Christmas dinner). And, like I joked about in another thread, I'll name it Barnaby :)

I may make UNRULY GIRLFRIEND DEMAND and ask boyfriend nicely for a bunny.  I'll get him ...basketball tickets or something.  Or Leafs hockey tickets... I think they're about the same price... maybe more. x(

I got my pooch though too.  I've always admired animals for being able to make you smile at least once a day or so.  It's no wonder some folks can get shaken up quite a bit when a pet does go. =/
