1  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Quest XI will be out 2016 on: June 16, 2014, 04:35:38 PM
I'm still waiting for DQ7 on 3DS. Would much rather play it there than on laggy PS1.

FF X-2 Opening Theme

This is probably my favourite piece in the entire game. I spend ages at the loading screen just listening to it play.

SO much love.

Piano collection version is also lovely.

I want a Parasite Eve piano collection after listening to A.Y.A.

I really REALLY like the HIDEAWAYS vocal tracks. Kiss of Jealousy ftw. :)
4  The Rest / The Bazaar / Free LR:FFXIII DLC (Xbox 360) -- test, JP only? on: April 22, 2014, 03:32:21 PM
I bought the first print of the Lightning Returns: FFXIII soundtrack from Japan. It came with a DLC card inside. I don't know what it's for -- prolly some costumes.

I'll be trying to use the PS3 code at some point. If anyone has the 360 version, feel free to try this code:

HMQKM - GPCDR - M443C - VKM9D - V3W9Z

my fear is that it'll only work with the Japanese version of the game. I figured I'd let one of you guys, who owns LR on 360, find out.

So ... claim the code and let me know. Thanks!

There are really only two categories for VNs. Those that have porn, and ones that don't. Anything that doesn't get tossed into the all general ages bracket. I don't necessarily agree with it as some of these VNs deal with content that is definitely not "all ages" material. VNs get such a negative stigma for porn that the All Ages rating is flat out telling you there is none in it.

per Andrew's own explanation in the article, I'd say there are three categories.

1) nukige -- sex is front and center. It's the point of the game. It's the gaming equivalent of porn.
2) eroge -- sex happens. It can be seen as a "reward" of some kind, or just something that happens. It's the gaming equivalent of a Hollywood movie with a racy sex scene that includes nudity.
3) "all-ages" -- no nudity. Caveats noted elsewhere in the thread apply. :)

Tomara -- I'd forgotten about Villgust! Hmm ... on that note I suddenly remember a whole bunch of other Japanese RPGs I could probably get in there.

Monsoon -- Thanks for the tip. I'll look into Sporcle.

I'm thinking I might make one that's localized-only, and specific to the first generation of CD consoles (Sega CD / Saturn + PlayStation). That would be mucho fun.

This site, you just type in stuff and get answers right. It's a kind of addictive site. I was introduced to it with a map of the world, you have to name all 196 (current) sovereign nations, and you have 12 minutes. I took it 30 times until I learned them all, and now I can do it in like 6 minutes. Then I started taking other quizzes, and searching for quizzes. And I noticed a distinct lack of good RPG quizzes.

So the link up there? That's just a big (but non-exhaustive) list of RPGs on 16-bit consoles (SNES, Genesis, a few PCE/Turbografx). I give you the hint, you give the answer. I have the answers laid out in alphabetical order.

I might add more to it, or I might make more quizzes, such as game-specific quizzes where you have to name all playable characters or other trivia to the game. There are a bunch of pokemon quizzes, but I would be more interested in doing, say, a Xenosaga lore quiz. :P

Plz let me know what you think.

I like the anti-frustration feature where if you die, you can continue in most cases at the point where you died.

ME TOO

ah yes, Sega Master System, where the brown-haired Aron faced off against "Dark Dekt."

Also just a friendly reminder, Ys has no apostrophe.

This.

As an Ys fan, I'll also assure you it's pronounced "Eece" (fleece minus the fl), not "Wise"

Also, get over your PC aversion because Ys Origin is great. :)
13  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGs you're ashamed to like? on: April 08, 2014, 01:38:15 AM
I liked FFX-2.

No, really! I love camp. It was so full of ham and cheese that it went way beyond being annoying and was just damn funny. Besides, I'm just easy to please with a job system and mission based structure.

This.

I don't think I feel shame for liking unpopular RPGs. And X-2 is right up at the top of such a list. Camp was fine with me. The job system rocked, the battle system rocked, everything about it was super-fun.

I cannot wait to pick up X/X-2 HD and go nuts getting 100% achievements on both. Getting the "International" content is super exciting for me as well. :)

One of Nintendo's worst decisions (IMO) in the last decade was to declare that they'd be limiting the number of soundtracks they'd release. Lots of their games aren't getting OST releases. Twilight Princess was a notorious one. Another one that ABSOLUTELY deserves its own attention, but didn't get it: Kirby's Epic Yarn.

This soundtrack is all kinds of amazing.

Here's a pick: Deep-Dive Deep.
