I just killed Lucas Blight... why did you guys say he was a great villain? He was awful.
I kept expecting him to capture my sister and torture her and kill her and eat her for breakfast, yet nothing of that happened, because he's just nice like that.
Code:
except for the fact that you are forgetting  that he was an ax crazy, batshit insane,  and a brokenly strong non true rune wielding character. Story wise it took your whole army to beat him. If Joey''s plan had not of worked he would  have killed every man, woman, and child of the city states,  and enjoyed every minute of it

Burning village and genocide is normal in war. I don't see how that makes him evil. Alexander the Great did tons of it and he's Great.

I agree with this for the most part.  He IS evil, but certainly "more the same" if you've kept up with history's greatest assholes.  Kinda odd to down-play it like that.  But certainly for the revered "greatest villain", he was in one sense: insanity.  He never really betrayed, hurt, back-stabbed, stole, and caused despair any more than he just went on a killing spree.  There was no drive or really much to sympathize with (again, my understanding of the game is far but perfect after so long, but either way, it was certainly nothing I could recall).  I think we're at the same crossroad that the "worst RPG" topic is at, and that would be what really defines "best villain" is subjective.

Apparently it was just his ruthlessness and malice for stemming out of simple causes or simply for the sake of "doing bad".  But, I agree, I found his end barely made an impact and found his screentime short lived to garner that much attention.

(then again, I played the game like 7 years ago, maybe I gotta replay it- but that's what I remember)

I give credit to the funny or creative ones (Assassin's Creed enjoys an amusing kill or two).  Or I liked how RoF made a picture out of it.

Are people still surprised about DLC pricing for popular games?  Really?  I was pretty sure most people had just given up and accepted it by now.

Doesn't make it any less ridiculous.

Technically you're paying an additional $5 for ONE character whereas you already paid full-price of the game for.

Anyways - I'm sure a sale on this would pop up eventually, no?

Peckers (think of Hooters if it was aimed towards women)

=D

From new game journal.

Quote
I like it so far, but not completely sold yet (too much goddamn dialogue, and like 5 battles thus far... get on with it!!).  I'm not sure whether I love or hate the artwork and spritework.  The stark black shadows annoys me in the artwork, and so does the sprites' meager frame rate (outside of battles anyways, the in-battle ones look great!! ...which is odd, it's like they gave up for the field sprites).  Great music so far, but the prologue last an hour and we hear about 3 recycled tracks.  I like the game, but the lack of polish adds a bitter taste.  I'm at the "first big choice", I think (the twins are making a big deal about a node, so...).

Super Happy Fun Super Journal!
I like it because 'super' is in it...not once, but twiiiice.

Finally playing Radiant Historia.

I know fuckall about the series... but I'd pay and kill to see this done in a videogame.

My vote is on Madoka for MVP of the season. 2-chan also agrees.
If they don't mess up with the ending, that's going to be an incredibly good show. (anime mess up endings 95% of the time)

Considering it's competition, that's like saying that Lunar is the best JRPG to come out on the SegaCD.

That said.


@Dice: Were you seriously expecting something else coming from the guy who did a visual novel where the main character sees nothing but body horror among other things? With that said, it obvious that it gets worse.

Code:
For instance magical girls are little more than glorified liches, that become witches after succumbing to despair, in an existence of nothing but despair, all for the sake of aliens needing to harvest emotions to patch up the universe currently existing on borrowed time.

Obviously, don't read the code if you don't want the spoilers.

Haha - wooow.  I have an enormous respect for the author... mainly for taking the sort of romance visual novel and magical girl plots into some sort of dark extreme version of them. 

Watching the opening now feels like some sort of cruel joke in a sense - it certainly doesn't represent the show, but mocks what these types of shows usually contain.  It's genius...!!...??

Some games have ridiculous achievements to obtain and I generally don't care for ones that are either stupidly tedious ("do _____ x times), or ones that require a long as time to acquire. Just not worth it and prove little about talent. Worst yet is the final hit to the ass, "get all other trophies" for the platinum prize. Too bad there's no other incentive to platinum a title (a buck off PSN or something).

Some are fun to get. And some I go out of the way for. But some just suck.

Speaking the title's a month away, you'd think there would be more information being posted about it.... or a website at least.
7092  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Gust announces new Atelier game on: March 06, 2011, 02:31:21 PM
According to VGChartz Rorona sold more in the west than in Japan which would make a localization a good business.

I don't mean to doubt something I can't prove.... but for some reason, that just feels...not true.  Mighty hell if it is.
7093  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: March 06, 2011, 02:44:22 AM
Sweet Jesus Ass McHell.  Minor, early series spoilers, the cutesy styling of Puella Magi Madoka Magica is extremely deceiving.  Redundant title aside, you get lured into this magical-girl fantasy, where our heroine wears pinks, and her high school friends transform, and they fight witches along some cute wish-bestowing creature... and then you're treated to a beheading of one of the girls 3 episodes in!!  And, no, it doesn't get better.  

Available for stream [for now?] - but I kinda like this darker take to the magical-girl plot.  For one, there's more story here than Sailor Moon had it's entire 5 or something years on air.  

I do recommend it, feed your curiosity for some cruel animated stuff, and feed the guilty pleasure for cute colours and transforming highschoolers as being marginally amusing.

Seems like Rorona flopped here to justify a Totori (or is it too soon to speak). 

Meh.  I need more out of these games to really consider them. =/
Lovely art as of late though (forgot the artists name, Mel?  She's wonderful).

Reliving the nostalgic moments in my childhood I guess?

Also, manchild as Mesh said.

+1 to that too. I have no shame in occasionally enjoying the kiddy stuff, not just pokemon. :p

I'd come in with an army of Psyducks.
