Tales of's (Symphonia up), Trails in the Sky, Radiant Historia, Personas, Star Ocean (plot is in the negatives though), Suikodens (surprisingly), Valk Profile, Nier, um what else, the FF's if you havent played one by now.  I think these are all considerably deep.  Hell, sometimes the one saving grace of a poor plot comes in the form of it's characters.

I have Chrono Cross if you wanted.  Might be out for PSN soon, and it's still pretty cheap on eBay (hence why I have it).

Every martial arts movie should have Quick Time Events.

I loved that movie. WHERE'S MY ELEPHANT!!??!?!?!?!

Hm, looking at those comparison shots, they do seem to have created completely new character models and changed geometry and textures in the environments. If they went through the trouble of creating new assets I have to wonder if they couldn't have taken it a step further. Then again, Revelations is in a league of its own, nothing of what has been shown for the 3DS comes close, gotta give credit to capcom here.

It's amazing what they did, that's kinda why I'm bitter than Nintendo couldn't do better on their own bloody handheld.
Minor role I know, but the Hyrule knights look a step above the N64 graphics...

I did watch the camcorder vids on YT, and I like some of the visual changes, they're much less stoic anyways.  I just really gotta gear up to face the Water Temple again and a few other "fun" puzzles (I did find it funny how much easier the water palace in Twilight Princess was :D )...

EDIT: music video for the 3DS Prof Layton game
This is awesome -- If I ever did a song for a video game, I'd love to be remade in "its" style haha

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(  The closest I ever got was 115lbs, and people said I was "really thin" (obviously not the twig, size-0 thin, but you know what I mean... actually girls that size can be creepy, when thin pants are still baggy on 'em). 

Love your pooch by the way. x)

4 hours in and I don't think I can continue playing this game. Music is the only aspect of it I actually like. Gameplay got too damn boring. Story aint that good either and I can't recognize this Aya...

Please, someone, tell me the ending is worth it!

No. God no.

It's pretentious Squeenix mind-fuck.  More importantly, pretentious.

It'd be weird to do FFX because to me it's not the graphics that really date the game. It's the terrible dialog and voice acting.

I blame the dialogue more.  Bender DiMaggio is awesome. x)
I do think Yuna's voice is one of the worst things to happen to FF as a whole though; there's something not right about it, she sounds like she doesn't understand the language instead of soft and frail or whatever, worst is it doesn't transfer well to X-2.

I'm almost done with season 1 of Darker Than Black. It's kind of confusing and the story is all over the place, but it gets brownie points from me for having a Chinese main character who's a badass normal and badass abnormal rolled in one, and isn't treated as just the comic-relief guy.

I have a new favorite anime character now.

I do a tip of the hat to the Japanese doing good Chinese characters.... and non-Japanese (ie; Euro-mericans) that aren't blue eyed and blond.  Still have yet to find the latter.

Watched the first episode of ...um, Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko (which literally translated to the fun title: “Electric Wave Woman and Youthful Man”).  Whats with making lead guys in harems look like absolute losers?  He's okay, he's got a dick haircut, but seems personable enough.  Truthfully, I only started watching this because of the appealing and interesting opening theme and animation.  Gorgeous animation, but the "aunt" character is one of the worst things to happen to anime all year, who's like a 39-year-old 8-year-old.  Weird story, hopefully it goes somewhere because meh. 

All this hubbub about Darker than Black makes me hope its something a bit more on the thought provoking side.

Dice needs to read up on the history of RPGs

Sticks... and... STONES!!

So I've been working on one of my two pen and paper RPGs recently... It was supposed to be Persona in America (done the right way (I'm looking at you, Revelations: Persona)), but all the Persona mechanics just didn't seem to transfer well enough, so I decided to change it to something more like Shin Megami Tensei if...

I feel wrong for doing that. Should I?

Not too sure what to say without the context of this here.  What is a paper-pen RPG?

I just took my Matrix Blue Pill that makes me wake up like nothing ever happened.  Huge headache all day... Took my pill, and essentially, I'll see you all later.

I wonder if they'd remake FF6 the way they did 1-4.  Fucking hell, they need to get on FF's 5 and 6 already.  How the fuck did they justify this whole FF4 remakes bonanza and not even consider the next two?  Something better be sizzling...!!

((insert Yoda's Hulk smiley here))

Visual novels: Saya no Uta is pretty goddamn morbid.  ...no seriously, it's a plot point to simply "be" like that.

Nier (not PSP... but not many "dark" PSP titles... because otherwise, aside from a few minor additions, and old, Breath of Fire V and the SMTs was the last that I can really say stuck to memory)
7498  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: A dark game? on: April 16, 2011, 11:38:51 PM
I don't really think LoM is very fun to play but in terms of story/setting/characters it is maybe my favorite Square thing. Shame about the gameplay though.

I liked it, but I thought the battles could use some heavy duty mechanics tweaking.  It feels difficult to just attack sometimes, clunky too.  If there was any way it could have been as fluid as Castle Crashers (very similar battle style), then I'd have loved it way more.
7499  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Nintendo 3DS Launching at $249.99 on March 27 in the US on: April 16, 2011, 11:37:02 PM
I don't either - but waaay better has come from Nintendo.  If the new Res Evil game looks as good as it does, why does this one look way worse than Twilight Princess?  But again -- I'd rather see it in action before I'm more absolute with my opinion.

Looking at these comparison shots of Ocarina, I would say that the graphics were improved considerably from the N64 version.


All things considered, especially with how other games look, this still looks kinda poopy.  I'm not changing my mind, and screw nostalgia (thats a bullshit reason for a "remake"), but I would look to see it more in motion; even HD games look kinda crappy as screenshots, seeing it in motion is always best.
