I eagerly await Squenix's next response/plan of action for the game.  Eagerly.
Apparently both Square stocks AND members for FF14 have taken a nice dip. =X
8237  The Rest / General Discussions / So, besides gaming, what you're thing? on: October 27, 2010, 09:27:21 PM
SUURELY you have another hobby besides video gaming.  Try to avoid or add to the whole "movies and music" thing - I'm going more for hobbies and extracurricular or what have you.


I delve into the arts myself (Go see at http://vanilladice.deviantart.com/ ).  A lot of anime-styled stuff, but I've become more versatile into many other styles as well (which you'd see if I had a chance to update and draw more stuff). I love to draw and I'm taking Art History in school.  I feel like I can "breath" when I see art, I love how I feel around it, and I love how it's a sort of "historical picture book" so to speak.

If not drawing, or gaming, I love going to the gym.  I had a shakey heart when I was growing up, prone to heart palpitations and the like, so I started to work out in order to promote a better lifestyle and help my overall stamina.  Yaay!  I liked it.  Lost some weight when I was gaining in high school and feel great. =)
One particular, i love riding my bike around the city.

I love walking around the mall.  Sue me.  I don't really have money to buy, but I do enjoy a walk.  I try to be a rare girl gamer that buys games and buys some fashionable stuff (fuck me, spent $60 one one game, then went to buy a $200 jacket - fucken hard stuff to live like!)

I hate sounding like a housewife, but I love cleaning.  My mom is a pack-rat, and I do everything but.  I love cooking too.  I didn't pay much attention to it at first; but our family recently emptied our pockets for a nice kitchen renovations and we've been cooking so much - screw restaurants; over priced and poor service compared to cooking for people.  The best thing about cooking: it's a hobby no one can hate you for, we all love to eat.  And I bloody love food - it's a life highlight... so gym is a must...

Otherwise, I'm sort of anti-social.  I have a few close friends and I don't care to make time for a lot of people.  Probably a bad idea and a bad outlook.  But it's hard to find someone genuinely interesting.
I usually do one on one's with friends, and one of my favorite things to do is go to my room, watch a movie or play some games (sorry) and have a beer and chat.  That or a coffee shop or a restaurant.

Aww :( I'm taking linguistics right now, I could've helped you.

It wasn't my thing; the help was crap (in class, I'm thankful to RPGfan-ers haha).
I started to get lost by Chapter 3 and decided maybe this wasn't a good choice.

You're doing okay with it???  I don't think anyone in my class really was.
8239  Media / The Soundroom / Re: NieR Gestalt & Replicant / 15 Nightmares & Arrange Tracks, 08.12.2010. on: October 27, 2010, 07:53:19 PM
Expect a lot of techno though for the DLC music - hit or miss.

The website sample is nice; I adore Kaine's theme and find it beautifully (if somewhat an odd choice given the character's demeanor and personality).  I'm curious for the rest.

It'll be a long wait til December - so no more thinking about it!!
8240  Media / The Soundroom / Re: Symphonic Fantasies music from Square Enix, on sale September 15. on: October 27, 2010, 07:49:45 PM
1. I hate Medleys

2. The tracks they picked really don't interest me

3. We need more orchestrated FF9, the best orchestral music in the series, and one of the only not to have an orchestral remix album.

I don't feel you at all on #1 and #2. I totally feel you on #3.

I found the Chrono Cross' Medley was the best - otherwise I'm inclined to agree.
I hate when the arbitrary "songs of choice" usually get pinned to game-important themes, rather than actual good tracks.
8241  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Suikoden Topic on: October 27, 2010, 07:44:47 PM
I guess it's somewhat appropriate that they're using the Suiko 4 characters for it. Pretty sure we're being trolled here.

8242  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Suikoden Topic on: October 27, 2010, 07:18:08 PM
I echo this response.


The person and team who thought this was a good idea should be shot.  No question.
I hope the series isn't dead...  then again, I wonder what the fuck has been so hard so as to rival the II and III game. I mean, the formula they have is basic, but somehow always fucked up when it comes to playing.

I was thinking about this series.  How I loved seeing the histories of the characters being played out across the games.  Goddamn shame we won't see one for some time at this rate.
8243  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Triggers and Crosses, the wonderful and horrible universe of the Chrono series. on: October 27, 2010, 07:10:05 PM
Viper and Riddel arn't bad choices for party members at all.  The main drawback is that Norris has a better balance in his MAG/ATK over Viper who's mostly ATK-based(And thus Norris has better overall usefulness and survivability in late-game), and Riddel is White-aligned meaning she's competing with Serge for a party slot, and considering that Serge NEEDS to be present and he's one of the best characters in the game already, that's not a good position to be in.

Of course, this is all from my munchikin view of the game, where I had to min/max everything all the time, so YMMV.

I liked Riddel's special-skills (she was later replaced with the similar, however blue innate, Lenna). HP restores are always welcomed, and same with reviving element uses.

I don't know why I stuck Viper on, he usually performed alright, and I like the look of him.  Same with Norris (not too typcail JRPG looking, Norris could actually qualify for an Aryan Nazi Commando look!!).  I hated the man's accuracy, proved a thorn at the best of times. =/

...truthfully, in the end, I found the game way too short to really want or be able to get acquainted with many characters - added that half of them aren't that really good.

I've always admired Tales games for keeping a relatively decent balance on "good" characters, each were wonderfully unique (heh, though only 6 to choose in Abyss).  At least these bad characters (even in Suiko's and Cross) were extremely easy to fish out.
8244  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: Linguistics anyone?? on: October 27, 2010, 06:59:05 PM
I know a great deal about linguistics, so I'm all for helping.

Thanks all - I sorta dropped the course already though...realizing I didn't want a full term of this.. =(

Thanks a lot for the consideration though, and sorry for wasting your time/post. =)
8245  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Triggers and Crosses, the wonderful and horrible universe of the Chrono series. on: October 27, 2010, 03:21:28 PM
Norris and Guile are also top picks to fill out your elemental roster.

Haha I liked Norris too, not many seem to either.
I usually stuck it out with Riddel's magic, but she was an alternate.  I kept Glen around whenever I could.  Kinda hard to go to a GREATGODDAMNCHARACTER to anyone else speaking a lot of the roster sticks...
I liked using Viper for some reason, as well.
8246  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nier on: October 26, 2010, 10:51:10 PM
Oh god. Don't start that crap.

Y'know, Nier is one of the best games I've played this year. I love it. But even I can understand why a critic would give it a mediocre score.

Agreed.  If I was to review it for a more widespread audience using an (attempted) unbiased viewpoint, I'd probably rate it around a 6 or a 7 too.  There are problems with the game.  I can love the game, but I can also admit it's not perfect.

I'd give the game about the same.  I think an oral/written review is better than the numbers.  I hate bloody scores sometimes.
8247  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Drink Moe for the future of Japan! on: October 26, 2010, 10:49:57 PM
So in business class they teach is to respect other foreign [markets] traditions...

I think we JRPGfan forumers are accustomed do the saturated stylings of the Japanese... Imagine the rest of the populace who see this new marketing.

THe guy has had a pretty fruitful life though.
8248  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Youtube on: October 26, 2010, 02:29:41 PM
Also I want this guy announcing every sports.

I WHOLE-HEARTEDLY agree - I love this guy. x)
Funnier every time!!!

I dunno. I feel like the "excessive cursing is hilarious" shtick is getting pretty boring. It feels so juvenile. Maybe I'm just getting old...

One of my favorite stand up comedians doesn't even say so much as "shit" let alone "fuck", I actually find the scenario and the way it is said better than all the "fucking". :P
8249  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: Delete Account on: October 26, 2010, 01:09:45 AM
Sorry if I made stupid posts to be honest I've been drinking a lot lately, I was diagnosed with cancer not too long ago and I don't really have any friends or family to turn to. I'll stop posting on the forums as much from now on though.

Be flattered - you're a rare class of demi-troll that hasn't even been banned thus far.  The RPGfan Police are pretty quick on the trails of other trolls too.
8250  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Halloween Haps on: October 26, 2010, 12:16:41 AM
My best Halloween was when I was a kid... and my parents *made me* dress up as a Christmas Tree.... I got first place in a costume contest.  It's probably because I WAS THE CUTEST LITL THANG or something.  I dont give myself credit for much.... but I do give credit to my CHEEKS.

... but a Christmas Tree, really folks? =(
