Ahoy all.  I need help.

I need a new desktop.  I have a fabulous Mac Laptop, but, like laptops, it overheats, and like Mac, it can run only about 1/1000th of the programs a Windows computer can.

I'm also a very poor little girl.
What would you all, who I assume are good at this sort of thing, recommend to a budget PC that would work really well with graphic work??

I'll appreciate any answers/recommendations I can get.

Xenogears is odd. The gameplay isn't particularly... good, and the battle system is based around this elaborate combo system which adds absolutely nothing to the game. The story also is... a thing. But I definitely would recommend playing it, because it is important.

Imma throw out some recommends for:

- SaGa Frontier
- Brave Fencer Musashi
- Shadow Tower. Or anything King's Field, really, tho I think Shadow Tower is the best.
- Wild Arms 1 and 2.
- Legend of Mana (It's really easy, but has like, my favorite setting and story from any Square game).
- Granstream Saga
- Guardian's Crusade
- Star Ocean 2

Oh and Valkyrie Profile but that probably causes a million dollars.

BFMusashi annoyed me with that steam tower chapter about to blow up -- the song was repulsive and played everwhere.  I was thinking of playing this again though, but 3D PSX action RPGs play ragged at best.

Granstream... fucking weird ass title.

Guardian's Crusade had an awesome intro opening, I loved how 80s it sounded.  But I honestly can't remmeber if it's good.

SO2 and VP have been able to stand the test of time quite well, IMO.

Puzzles.  Charm.  Dramz.  Injuns.

I don't like it myself (I...just don't think BoA has a nice voice =/  It's a sappy-ass tune too).  BUT.  I *adore* the end credits instrumental version of it -- it's perfect.

Even my pet rabbit likes that one. Opening song? Ran around the room thumping, frustrated I didn't get myself to safety. Ending song? Sat sideways on the couch with his little ears straight up so he could see and hear better. My bunny has a good taste in music :D Then he went back to eating the furniture.

I'd squeal in real life if I saw that.  That's so cute. x)

Appropriate repost.

I have played a lot of tales games...this one has the most enjoyable win quotes. Sophie is hillarious.

The next week one with malik had me peeing.

I love how he just doesn't respond at all. xD

I love the "all male" victory as well.

Awesome ad.  C'mon China, does NO ONE speak REAL English???

On the one hand, I haven't gotten a chance to play this in any form yet so an HD port would be a great jumping in point.

On the other hand, it's a Crapcom game and I'm finding it very hard to justify spending any money on this, even in light of the above statement.

The game dates pre-douchbag-Capcom, it it helps.

NOT digging the tight girl's leotard that Adol is wearing for "pants".  Kind of weird to see Adol, a WARRIOR, without armor too (how very JRPG of you, Falcom... ah well, at least it isn't the just a one-sided armor that also plagues J-heroes).

The graphics are...damned surprisingly good from Falcom!

Xenogears-Ya, I have heard many times that the game really tanks on the second disc. I am really interested to start it up just to see how drastic the change is from disc one to disc 2.

How to make classic video game quotes:

Villain: MWA HAHAHA!  I remember you're father, and how he screamed when I killed him!

Fei: My fatherYou mean my dad?!  What did you do to him?!?!

Villain: I'M NOT TELLING YOU! Mwwwaaaa haahaha

She's pretty and all... but tits that big (and, being raised by a brother, I have no problem ogling women) are just... nasty.

Ah well, at least they're more realistic than utter-endowed Io.

Move closer. :D
We can be buddehs.

I seriously need a gaming buddy that isn't my brother.  My last on stopped gaming, and the one before that became a hipster asshole.

You should try Suikoden, 2 is especially good.


If that was put up on PSN why the fuck haven't I gotten it yet?!?! 
7485  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Playstation 1 RPGs on: June 20, 2012, 11:26:39 AM
Generally, everything that's been put up on there is a pretty solid RPG.  Not one thing I've ever though "aw hell no, EWWW".
