Why in god's name would you ever need to grind in FFIX

Maybe because he's running a level 1 game challenge.

Or he misspoke and meant grinding in Chocobo's Hot and Cold.

I can't seem to figure out the game's skills system - is it supposed to develop that slowly??
I found the 8 bouts with Beatrix a pain in the ass.  I also found experience sucked too often to really find the effort to grind.

This thread reminds me of why I left the Gamespot forums
That card-based RPG on GameCube was utter shit.

Which one?

Lost Kindgoms (Rune).

This thread reminds me of why I left the Gamespot forums

Same here, except I left RPGfan for it, I thought this was the better forum.  At least more intellectually stimulating, but sometimes....
C'mon.

Granstream Saga
Azure Dreams (actually, I hated the Choco-Dungeon-Styled crawlers)
That card-based RPG on GameCube was utter shit.

Not the worst, but I'm throwing Persona 3 for being extraordinarily over-rated.
And again, not the worst, but sometimes I wanna lump the Kingdom Hearts series for shitty plot.  Certainly the most pretentious.
...hey, a "Gaming Razzies" contest might be fun.

I'm willing to bet money on FF13's popularity if it didn't have "FF" in it.

Stage 7 (from streams) is really cruel.

The light on the level landscape comes and goes, so you gotta remember where you pushed that block.

Though the victory theme made me giggle a bit.

EDIT:  Got the soundtrack.  The classical songs have been remade beautifully!!!!!  In the middle of it now.  OST getters, this one is nice (thus far).  I like Shoji a bit more now.

Two more interesting Tales of Eternia port fuck-ups.

After fighting Sylph, his first piece of dialogue has his name in Japanese....SHI-RU-FU!!!

When Efreet was summoned in battle, he blew up into a slew of the PSP battery icons (this was kinda cool actually).

I was a little skeptical about the high school mentality in Easy A as well but I just assumed that there are parts of the States where teenage sex just isn't commonplace (either that or the screenwriters were taking a jab at teen movies with similar settings).

Saw "Morning Glory" today. It was entertaining- I thought Rachel McAdam's character was a little annoying but I liked how her general optimism wasn't taken very seriously/was made fun of ("are you going to sing now?").


I thought it was a Community College?

Anyways yeah, I was the same on Easy A.  More the idea of how quickly the movie shoots from 0 to 100 kilometers and everything just blows up.  Also, I think her girlfriend (not the gay guy, lulz) spread a lot of the dirty rumour that wasn't even true.

Hyper Dimension Neptunia characters is lady goddesses in the disguise of video game consoles.  I call it a bad visual pun of sorts....

Here, let me fix that for you:

Wohoo! finally a chance buy one of the most overrated rpgs of all time...!

I agree, DQ is overrated as hell.

At this rate, we might be getting Legend of Mana and Threads of Fate next week.

x)  Yip yip!

At least you get Adult Swim.  Hell, speaking Canada has to air so many Canadian things, I generally find myself wanting more (I don't care about the shiny star exceptions, Canadian programming generally blows).
8247  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: February 28, 2011, 12:08:23 AM
Well, at least you have one.
Mine stopped talking to each other long ago.

I'm sorry.  And believe me, I think about that every time I get upset with one of them.  Even if a friend told me they needed another vay-cay on top the one they came back from, I'd still wanna slap them.

As for the bro thing.  That's a diving relationship - he's become extremely arrogant lately, and it's driving me mad (he was the guy I looked up to, y'know?).

Pretty cool idea.  Lord knows I still live for some of the golden titles of an era gone by.

Didn't Gamestop buy out EB
Many memories of hanging around the EB in Carousel mall as a youth pondering their PSOne and Dreamcast collections in relation to how much money was in my pocket. Had to have enough left to go to the food court, haha
Good times. I was definitely a mall rat in middle school. lol

Carousel Mall? Sounds like... San Bernardino or close by.

Yeah GameStop bought them. They still carry the EB name in Canada though (unless a new location opens up, then it's a GS).

I liked EB. GS is always hit or miss here.

I like our EB, except this olde EB still takes the Boutique part literally - it is the tiniest place ever.

Same thing keeps happening with Chapters.  Any new Chap locations are under Indigo (even though the former title makes more sense).  Speaking of Chapters, my closest one just renovated the Kids section.... and made it 5 times the size it was.  It's weird how these book stores are more about atmosphere now.  Kids section is HUGE, and the home decor and office supplies blew up in size too. Pfft, kids don't like to read!!!

What the hell. Sorry, off-topic.

One day it has no plans to come here, the next day we're getting trolled?  How unlike Atlus...or any company to be so wishy-washy...

When asked directly they're going to say "No" even if they'll announce it the next day. Only a leak would get them to admit it pre-emptively.

Mm, I dig that, I just found the statement a bit dead-ended at first in regards to it, is all.

Anyways, YouTuber MasterLL (purchaser and quite the talented JRPG-er on YouTube) has been putting up videos.  Amazingly done cutscenes to say the least.  More than that though, I'm really happy to see Soejima's style in longer animated sequences (and certainly higher budgeted than P3 was).  The transition to 3D was quite gallant as well.

... is it weird to say how much Vince's eyelashes irk me?  Funny how despite guys being as pink-lipped as girls, games avoid the aspect.  Same goes for lashes.  $0.02.
