2611  The Rest / General Discussions / Sega threatens to shut down YTMND on: January 12, 2007, 05:17:29 PM
hmm....and it looks like YTMND just went down. uh oh.
2612  The Rest / General Discussions / Sega threatens to shut down YTMND on: January 12, 2007, 01:40:39 PM
They survived Scientology's legal threats. Now let's see if they can survive Sega.

I for one have always been a major YTMND fan. Let's see how they do.

Riesz/Lise (the amazon spear chick) is my all-time favorite character. I've beaten SD3 three times, and each time I had her in my party so I could take her to a different class by the end. She's simply excellent.

(funny, though I used her 3x, I never made her my main character. For main characters I did Duran, Carly, and...I forget...Kevin? Whichever got me the 3rd last dungeon).

I posted months ago that FFV Advance also had the "attack its weakpoint for massive damage" quote in it.

And I think Raze's spoiler-text about sums it up. FFV isn't a very deep or serious game for starters, and if they wanna have a more light-hearted translation on a handheld port, I'm all for it.

The last line about sums it up. "God I'm a douchebag."

2616  The Rest / General Discussions / Bye-Bye to Blu-Ray? on: January 07, 2007, 03:30:41 AM
I don't trust sources that use contractions when they mean to use possessive pronouns.

alter it's course to more profitable waters.

and again

each with it's own seemingly continuous chain of production pitfalls.

and again!

has dropped the ball in it's own court.

Here's a 3-in-one, along with a typo using "on" instead of "own"

From it's core, the powerful Cell processor,with it's poor production yields, has added pitfalls to it's on rollout that is compounded by the difficulty in mass producing the Blu Ray in the Playstation 3.

And who can forget using a verb as a noun?

The affect

Looks like Gadgetnutz needs a proofreader.

In all seriousness, if PS3 bites the bullet for Blu-Ray, all I have to say is "good." I never saw the good in it.

2617  Media / The Soundroom / Song on FFV OST, "Harvest", DRIVING ME CRAZY on: January 06, 2007, 04:24:57 PM
I know what you're talking about. It's actually not quite as similar to the songs in your head as you'd think: it's just that synth and the melody. Trust me. ^^

But yeah, isn't FFV Advance a sweet trip? I loved going through it.

2618  The Rest / General Discussions / RPGFan Games of 2006 on: January 06, 2007, 03:27:36 AM
Also Superflat, FFV Advance is little more than a port. We get some new artwork, the bonus dungeon and jobs...yeah. But it's *BASICALLY* still FFV. It's hardly a new game.

FFIII on the other hand...well, it was COMPLETELY re-worked from the ground up. That fact alone probably gives it more weight than FFV.

That, and, it'd look a little nuts to give a "best handheld" award to a GBA game instead of a DS game. I myself voted for LostMagic, and if I hadn't voted for that, it probably would have been Magical Starsign (put the word "Magic" in a title and I'm sold!).

I think I may be in agreement with Eusis, however, that in our "genre" awards we may want to put in a "traditional turn-based RPG" category, since the console/PC/overall winners can hail from ANY of the genres. That's just good sense. (Though, in our case, it would've just been a way for FFXII to win three times over).

2619  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Ar Tonelico out soon on: January 06, 2007, 03:19:50 AM
wow. Talk about thread resurrection.

And your question makes NO sense to me. None whatsoever.

If you want the artbook/soundtrack, you'll probably need to *PREORDER* it, likely from NIS America themselves.

2620  Media / Single-Player RPGs / New Etrain Odyssey trailer on: January 06, 2007, 03:18:17 AM
ah yes, from "Project Yggdrasil." This is the game that was tentatively entitled "Yggdrasil Labyrinth" ... which would have been a headache since the games "Yggdra Union" and "Deep Labyrinth" have also been recently released. Glad they gave it the name "Etrian Odyssey."

The gameplay doesn't look that great (as stated, it's Wizardry-like FPoV dungeon crawling), but the character design, story, and !YUZO KOSHIRO! music will probably win me over.

2621  The Rest / General Discussions / NES seiken densetsu, ff7 with 3 characters, saturn shenmue on: January 05, 2007, 01:29:35 AM
the info about the origin of the Seiken Densetsu series is very interesting. It's funny that "Seiken Densetsu" is now known in the US and Japanese as the "Mana" series, though "Seiken Densetsu" translates to "Holy Sword (Excalibur) Legend" -- word up.

2622  The Rest / General Discussions / RPGFan Games of 2006 on: January 01, 2007, 09:06:29 PM

Although "complex" and "convoluted" essentially mean the same thing, most people use the word "convoluted" as though it were a bad thing: the word has a negative connotation, much like "stagnant" and "permanent" mean about the same thing, but one has a stronger negative emphasis.


PS - Yeah...I don't understand the whole "Zelda is an RPG" thing, but I know that since the beginning of time people told me it was one, so I went with it.
2623  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Rogue Galaxy. on: January 01, 2007, 01:49:03 PM
It's definitely not March. They've had the game *completed* in English since mid-December, and they've been giving out those demos for a month now. Jan 30 would be correct.

And yes, the game is going to Pwn your world.

2624  The Rest / General Discussions / Happy New Year, RPGFan on: January 01, 2007, 05:03:09 AM
I'm going to disappear for a day to recover from my lack of partying. Boooring new years for me (and it was my anniversary too!). I basically just played GBA games and hung out with my newborn.

But I hope you all rock 2007 harder than any previous year. I know I'm gonna try.

2625  The Rest / General Discussions / Saddam Hussein Executed in Iraq on: December 31, 2006, 02:17:03 AM
Quote from: "Hidoshi"
Also: What does it matter if he was a Muslim? I can hardly consider a man like that a real Muslim. Then again, I subscribe to Kirkegaarde's sentiment that faith in God is something you earn through your experiences in life, not something you are just given by the clergy.

Thank goodness for Kierkegaard. However, as you said, not everyone will share Kierkegaard's sentiments, and it looks like Sunnis have already begun to use Saddam's death as a reason for outrage and violence, and according to a recent BBC report, Saddam's death will probably be a new tactic for terrorist recruits that think "the West killed a Muslim man...it's Jihad time!"

I wish Mohammed would just come riding down on some sweet @$$ chariot and be like "sup b*tches, you're not defending the faith by acting like pansies. Grow some balls and get over it." That would be nice.
