2596  The Rest / General Discussions / Tragicomic: 1up feature on video game stories on: March 24, 2007, 01:15:43 AM
He might be excited enough to try and include nongaming family members and friends, forgetting they won't be able to measure the "good" story against any other games. It's like presenting your own toddler to guests. You might clap and cheer over little Johnny's ability to stack blocks, but the guests, who have seen more impressive things from dogs, will just smile and nod politely.

This is a good metaphor. And, as a gamer and father, I am generally disappointed (even disgusted) by the lack of enthusiasm by my associates who only "smile and nod" over something that ought to be considered exciting.

Cultural elitism can suck dese.

Interesting article, but I wouldn't call Locke an "emo thief."


Edit: Also, they talk about visual novels (such as Hotel Dusk) as if they're some sort of new phenomenon. ...shows how one-sided the coverage is. I understand they're writing for an English audience, but a one-sentence "visual novels have been around for decades in Japan" would have meant a lot to the discerning reader.
2597  Media / Single-Player RPGs / A New FF game to be announced...? on: March 23, 2007, 10:21:12 PM
Heraesis XIII being the next MMO makes a good bit of sense.

But I'd prefer the VII remake.

I'm surprised by the FF hatred on this board. I mean...that's fine that you think Nomura and Kitase have ruined the series, but that in no way changes the fact that S-E is still making quality games.

When I posted this thread I was hoping for people to make good, creative guesses. All I see is whining for new IPs and *overheard* complaints about the usual stuff.

Peter Molyneux.

He is distinctly missing from the #1 slot.

Well said.

uhh Eusis? That news story only listed the games they're presenting related to FF. The Square Enix Party will include many of other non-FF titles, and will probably introduce some new non-FF stuff too.

So, back on topic, anyone have speculation on what this new FF title will be?

Edit: Where'd you read that?

My money's on the FFVII PS3 remake. It has GOT to happen.

agreed with Eusis. XIII is a whole different ball of wax from XII. You may still wanna give it a shot.

Horny robot? Come on guys, that's the Fruit Fucker!

I'm not as up-to-speed w/ Penny Arcade as I'd like to pretend I am. :(

Quote from: "Hidoshi"

This is a thread about how Nintendo sucks, though.

Actually it's a thread about how Nintendo is doing surprisingly well in hardware sales.

Cute quote, but...oh wait Hidoshi didn't say it. And I sure as hell don't appreciate it.

The robot who jerks it to "shoot off" bullets made me laugh pretty hard.

If it really is being advertised as an RPG/adventure, I want to review it for this very site. Even if it's a piece of sh*t, it'll be a funny piece of sh*t.

Spica this time? She wasn't even a Reyvateil...

...and just for the record, why couldn't you partner with Claire in the game? Forget Shurelia, I'd like an older woman, and one whom I can actually see her face...


Well, can you tell this is my current favorite game? 'Cuz it is.

1) I thought Spica was a Reyvateil...even if she's not, she's quite involved in their lives. I own the album, review is coming soon.

2) You see Shurelia's face plenty...wait til Phase 3...

3) Claire is a side-character / shop-owner, much like Spica. Also, Claire said she doesn't want to sing for the sake of power; she just sings regular music now.

4) I'm glad this is your favorite game. There's a lot you have to "get past" (esp. for more casual RPGers) before you can really say "I enjoy this game." But it's excellent IMO.

I thought it was going to look something like:

I'm surprised.

If you look up "overall sales," that is most definitely what it looks like. But for monthly? Yeah, Wii is still riding a NICE wave.

PS3 may still be a late bloomer; the thing is just too damn expensive right now and doesn't have enough good software for it. But if PS3 doesn't start selling well by, say, Summer of 2008, Sony's gonna have some BIG problems.

Yeah. It's doubtful that any of the main-series Summon Night games would ever have a shot of coming to the US. Summon Night 4 just came out a few months ago on PS2, but right on the heels of that, Flight-Plan released Dragon Shadow Spell (which I'd consider a superior game to SN4).

If you import, I'd definitely check the series out.

Anyone who kept up with the series would think in completely backwards order from you. The GBA games were released as little side-story projects after Summon Night was firmly established as a strategy RPG franchise.

In response to the original post:

the Langrisser series. Though they were originally seen on Sega consoles, I believe they all eventually made it to PS1.

Legally, they probably will win the case. People can and will continue to look at the situation and say "ok that's fucked up," but really (o rly? ya rly) this is the trend that comes after the sexual revolution and emphasis on civil liberties. Next on the plate are polygamy and intergenerational-homosexual love (aka NAMBLA). I promise you that, at least in Europe (if not America), these issues will be seriously challenged in courtrooms in the next two decades.

But Degolas' reaction can sum it up for most of us.

And, some of what i just said relates to what Hidoshi said. But remember, you're still drawing a line, we just re-drew it in the past few decades to let homosexuals "in" on the acceptable side. Incest, polygamy, and "concensual" pedophilia are the next ones up. I'm not saying my 2 cents on it, I'm just telling you how it is. ^^;
