My party consists of Arumat, Bacchus, Sarah, and Edge.

Sarah is the best healer despite having crappy AI.

Funny, I thought Edge was out classed by the end, or more specfically, by the post-game dungeons.  Maybe I just didn't set him up right....

Places explored better be really cool.

I knew Katherine was that creepy-ass monster.

Someone's pissed.

Come on, AtlusUSA!

Also, Vincent learns his skills from the sheep. No, seriously.

HEY!  I hope that's sarcastic.  My time as a sheep herder was more enlightening and more of an eye-opener than any job before that, sir!!!!!

Refresh my memory, it's been some 8 years probably since I played last.

All I remember was the title's ...diminishing fun factor after a few summons were in my inventory.  Mind you, back then I wasn't really "old enough" to want to take on the weapons (something I wouldn't mind doing again).

They nerfed Reimi? How much? Arumat and Meracle are technically way stupidly stronger.

I hear it was some of her skill damage and her critical hit % that took the major hit.
Most of the time my party is still Arumat, Meracle, Reimi and Sarah - so it didn't bother me; I do think these are the biggest tanks though.

Sweet jesus I had the most retarded kids in at my restaurant.  I seriously wept (not seriously).

Bunch of kids, 18-20 years old come in.  They're loud and obnoxious already - so I knew this wasn't gonna go well.
We have a $0.50 Wing night at my sports pub place, and they asked me ...
"How much is 20 of the fifty cent wings?"

(le gasp, "really???", I think to myself)
Me: $10.

"How much is half that many wings?"

(jesus christ)
Me: ...$5....

Later on, they get some Smirnoff Ice's, 3 of them, one of guys had to drink 2 because his bud didn't have ID (and the others *just* made the cut) I was watching like a hawk.  Then it got better.  They were getting up, with the bottles and making their way for the door (they paid me, thank god).  I tell them...
"Uh, you can't take those outside - it's against the law and all that...".

They say back to me what can only be described as PURE GOLD.
They say, "It's okay, we're going to be in the car, no one will see it".
Which is fucken worse.  Especially if they get caught by cops (and since they're half retarded already, I suspect it has happened or will in the near future), they'll have open drinks in a fucking car during daytime hours.

LOGICK I HOPE IT GOES WELL, your success and pursuits makes me happier to contrast what I just typed. x)

While not as critical as PotRoast, I didn't understand the analogy either.  Then again my brain is fried with this stupid fucken paper I'm reading called "What Isn't History". 

I thought FF7 could be brilliantly retold in a more next gen format.  The 5-foot tall "3D-sprite" look of FF7 leaves little the imagination when cloud is shaking his fist sockem boppers.

I've been wondering is the Playstation 3 version really worth getting or should I stick with the XBox 360 version?

Up to you.  Disc swapping fucking reeks.  But they also nerf a few characters (Reimi particularly - although she's still in my team), and they moved some items (Reimi and Arumat's best skills being of notable mention) and made others harder to create.  And if you're one of them "purists" who hates the fact the menu screen changed from the anime one... well... the anime one will worsen your ability to see colours as bright as you once did.  It's highly saturated and there's too many colours flying around compared to the tamer CG one.  Some of the anime portraits suck donkey dick too (I think anime-Myuria looks ugly compared to the real-face).  Otherwise, you can play the title in Japanese. 

If you can find it cheap and find the question worth asking, it might be worth it.  Especially for the added challnge (something I was happy to get back to after Golden Sun: DD constituted mashing the "attack" button to achieve victory).

...possessing your best friend for no apparent reason and was defeated by the main characters yelling awkwardly voiced lines at it.

HEY!!  It was NOT a stupid reason!  The girl Faize loved for 5 minutes was sacrificed.


And hard to argue when ME is just generally an awesome title you're working with.  The only thing I didn't like when I saw ME was the character interactions, and how Shepard kinda sounds like English was programed into him and sounds like some sort of dick-head cyborg (that, and I liked picking the ruder conversation options, they're funny).
Though I've never been fond of game comparisons.  Kinda ruins whatever individual characteristics a game stands for (ie; high budget FF games getting high scores, or similarly [bad example but moving on] Tales titles with lower budgets still getting the same grade with reviewers).

Hard to really explain what I mean, but I hope you get the gist.
8246  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Catherine from Persona team on PS360 on: January 10, 2011, 07:47:00 PM

Kind of odd liberties taken with the animation sequences... but anyhow.

I love Vincent's running animations heh
8247  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Star Ocean 4 International coming to the PS3 on Feb. 2010 on: January 10, 2011, 07:43:15 PM
I won't pressure too hard (sorry I love to debate), but if possible, could you answer one last question. Like I said, I am trying to enjoy this game.
Other than the main characters/environment graphics, Lymle and the combat, did you like anything else?

13 sex
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ages_of_consent_in_Asia#Japan
While 16 is the marriage age
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marriageable_age#Asia

Assuming the story lasts a year (which is the usual off-time at the end of the story, based on previous SO titles), she was legal in all ways.

Again, did you read my post?  I never said I like the story - I cite it as one of the (if not THE) weakest link.  I liked the gameplay, the customizing, the graphics, the worlds, the difficulty especially.  It was one of the finer battle systems I played on a new-gen console, and certainly one of the better tweaked ones.  I don't even like Lymle, I already said she's one of the shittier characters.  I just think a lot of the hate for her is odd and boring by this point.

I stopped playing games for story and waited for those titles to come to me (ie; Nier), since most games have godawful rubbish or silly or predictable as stories anyways.

And I don't know why you're pushing this age of consent thing in Japan when I don't even give a shit and it has NOTHING to do with my argument nor does it give a strong credence to SO4 being an in-disguise sex romp.
8248  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Star Ocean 4 International coming to the PS3 on Feb. 2010 on: January 10, 2011, 05:32:12 PM
I don't have time to respond, but I still generally disagree and you didn't seem to read my post carefully.  I agreed with some points and completely can't care about others or find them bizarre.

And after such minor complaints, please don't say "you're trying hard to love it"; because I don't feel it at all.

Do you REALLY think Squeenix would have allowed an eroge in their roster?  Any history of such is minor at best and maybe reduced to in-game social interactions.  That's the developer speaking, definitely something Squeenix would have had.  The fact he wanted to make an eroge doesn't make it apparent in the game aside from (like I said) the usual shitty Japanese-anime-esque scenarios we see time and time again.  Undie jokes and shower scenes didn't have to be there, but lord knows it almost comes expected in modern day titles (something I pray to Christ they stop soon - I've boycotted Neptunia for it; works since I the game isn't too hot otherwise).
And I want proof of this "Lymle is 15 because it's the legal sex age".

You do realize you ruined my argument of hating Lymle for her attitude with a far more childish one?  She's "retarded"?  What is that about?  Worse even is how you're pointing fingers at this game where many other titles are offenders of "young fighters" as well.  She fought for her fucken grandpa or whatever, and turned to help Faize through his dull crises.  The Grandia series has one young fighter per title, the Suikoden's too.  FF9's Eiko is SIX years old.  She's in fucken grade 1.
I personally thought everyone blew that "kay" thing out of proportion, I found the fucking cat meow's way more annoying mainly because of the character types attached to it.  Meracle annoyed me for that (but usually I overlooked it since she was a ringer in the battle field).  I think preserving those stupid verbal tics are a matter of translation integrity to some extent.  And that's some target audience to drop a game because of it.

Cutscenes were no more than 10 minutes, MGS topped this but no one complained (granted the scenes were better) and these scenes were skippable (with synopsis included).  Dungeons were longer, your point there is an exaggeration.  Odd since I heard more people complaining of the linearity of games that "travelling is bad".  Frankly, it was easier to march around these "fields" than a full out world map.

I'm not sure what kind of character depth you want here, but most is said about them in PAs and whatever story parts.  Unless you wanted the depth where a character was raped, then went to war, lost an eye, lost a lover, came back for revenge, but still hasn't got it.  We had character backdrops.  They were fleshed poorly, and accompanied with (like I admitted) a set of idiot characters (save about...3 of them).

I weep how a lot of people hate this title because of characters and story.  I've said it before and I say it again; but I love tri-ace for making a game for me to play, not a title for me to sit and watch.

Go play Persona or something; the character depth is there for you, and why you'd bother arguing a title in such depth when we're clearing representing different sides is a waste of time, quite frankly. =/

And if an NPC's lack of fingers bothered me, I'd have chucked all my older systems long ago.  And I had the x360 version of SO4 as well, I SYMPATHIZED with your disc swapping.

It's a mockup. They don't even know for sure that that's the length of the cable. Way to make a story over nothing, Kotaku.

Isn't that what Kotaku always does?  They are the gaming equivalent of a tabloid.


I usually like them for being quick on the uptake though.

Sweet Jesus, for a system that has the pathetic battery life it already does, no way I wanna spend it huddled by an electric outlet to play a title. =(
Hope it's longer or we get one helluva "suspend game" thing built in.
