Quote from: "Bernhardt"
"Barrel!" - Click upon a barrel in any Atelier Iris game, and one of your characters will shout out the obvious. Ingenius in it's simplicity. I guess it's AI's hilarious, non-sensical quirk; every RPG has at least one of those.


You beat me to it. That is my all-time favorite humor quote.

A recent favorite of mine comes from that broken PSP game, Generation of Chaos.

"there are no judges that await you: only the executioner!" ~ Gena

Other than that, I'll have to admit that I don't know game quotes very well. I mean, I know about Spoony Bards and all that, but nothing very cool.

Masamune's correct. We get games as advance releases, for free. That's one perk of working at this site.

And yeah...again, like Masamune said, don't be giving rude snarky comments to the site's webmaster. That's just a terrible idea.

And, IMO, the game isn't very good.

948  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Replaying RPGs? on: February 28, 2007, 09:32:36 PM
I wish I could replay games more often than I do. The most time I had to replay games where those lovely middle school and high school years. As such, this is what i can remember playing:

FFV - I've beaten it 3 times now if you include the GBA game. I beat it once for fun, then I wrote my own walkthrough on the 'net the second time through (it was crap but it had screenshots to guide you), then again for FFV Advance.

FFVI - 4 times on this one. The first time I beat this, I had this weird glitch; when I went to get Gogo, one of those construction-worker-dudes kicked me off the bridge. In fact, he kicked me off the bridge a good half-dozen times. The last time it happened, I was SO angry that I mashed on my controller as I fell from one screen to the next. Then, I hit start to use potions/ethers (low hp/mp from the random encounters), and TADA! I had 99 of every item in the game, including the Paladin Shield, Ragnarok Sword, and whatnot. In Espers, I had Odin and Raiden simultaneously, which is supposed to be impossible. It was excellent. But I felt like it was cheating, so I beat it a second time that same year. Then there was the PSX remake. Ten years later, GBA port.

Chrono Trigger - Only fools didn't take the time to get ALL the endings. This took me three complete play-throughs instead of two, cuz I missed a few my second time around.

Alundra - Once by myself, once with a friend and my little brother...we had WAY too much fun with this game.

Star Ocean: The Second Story - Once with each protagonist in the lead. The first time I totally missed everything and got a crap ending. The second time I was on my way to the best ending, but I missed some trigger to get the last event with Chisato...it pissed me off.

Final Fantasy Adventure - I beat it once per summer for about...six summers in a row. It was my "family road trip" game.

Final Fantasy Legend II - Same as Adventure, but slightly less awesome for me. I probably beat it 3 times.

That's about it...except, more recently, I'd say I beat Ys: The Ark of Napishtim either 3 or 4 times and gotten really good at Time Attack.

I wish I had more time to play RPGs more than once, but as a devoted reviewer, I try and portion my time out evenly for as much stuff as I can. Currently, I can boast that I've beaten 101 RPGs...I won't stop until at least 200! :)

PS - Welcome. You sound hip.
949  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Things you can’t bear in RPGs on: September 04, 2006, 10:04:26 PM
I can't stand the following things in RPGs:

1) Programming or text-based errors that destroy puzzles (see the "Fate" puzzle from Tales of Destiny).

2) Good storylines with poor execution, or vice versa (lots of RPGs have this problem).

3) Killing God -- j/k I'm just being stupid. I don't mind using that cliche, depending on HOW it's used. I think all religious people ought to expose themselves to this sort of thing, whether it be book, film, or videogame. There is a primal urge (whether it be good or bad you decide) to rebel against authority, and if God's the ultimate authority...yeah. That's one of many motives to fight back at God.

4) RPGs with bad music, or a lack of a real score.
