I'll just go on the record and say that men who play as females the majority of the time, are creepy, disturbed, or sexually deprived individuals. There are exceptions because this is a generalization.

I assume you have conducted conclusive research on this subject? Could you post some of your statistics and findings? Also how do we quantify "Creepy"? I look forward to reading your papers.
I'm going to PM you 892 pages on the subject. Microsoft Word okay with you?

I look forward to it. ;)

During the brief time I played FFXI when I was about 13, I played an Elvaan (sp?) female. No real motive behind it, I didn't even think it was an issue that my avatar was female.

Ah, Persona 3. Anyone who remembers my...statements, about it a while back, I have to say; I'm very sorry, and a hypocrite. On a mere whim, I retried P3 2 days ago, and I haven't been able to put it down; it is just so engrossing. Does it make my list of favorite RPG's? No, but it's still dang good. And again, anyone who remembers that thread, sorry for saying that P3 is obsolete. It isn't.


At least your man enough to admit it.

Highest Growth Rates in Mystery of the Emblem:

STR - Jake (However, Est actually has the second highest in the game, which is unusual for the female characters)
MAG - Malliesia and Elice are tied for highest magic, both female.
SKL - Palla, female, with about 6 other female characters come at a tied close second
SPD - Shiida, female
Luck - Tiki, female, plus she is Mankete
DEF - Macellan, male (Though, if you aren't a Knight you aren't really going to compete in this)
RES - Wrys, male

So to me, it seems to be pretty balanced, with female characters excelling in magic, speed, skill and luck, While male characters excel in Strength and defense.

This is truly nothing out of the ordinary for a JRPG. I fail to see how it is sexist. Maybe if ALL the female characters were magic users, but they aren' there are melee classes there, and while they may not be the highest in terms of strength, they could still outlast a male character if used correctly by playing up their superior SPD and SKL.

Oh, yeah. As soon as this hits the EU i'll be playing the shit out of it. Although the time limit does stress me the fuck out, I did enjoy Annie. I'm a huge Atelier fan.

I know this is the "Fucking JRPGs" thread, but, man, am I getting tired of the constant FF ragging going on around here lately. It's like if you want to be cool, you have to HATE SquareEnix/Final Fantasy.
Now, I've barely even played FFXIII(maybe 4 hours in), but I like it well enough so far.
Previous to that, I recall enjoying pretty much every single FF game I played. I thought FFXII was fantastic, minus some nitpicks. I may not enjoy them as much nowadays, but that doesn't matter, as I don't replay games.
Some of you people seem impossible to please. They're freakin' video games. Sure, my tastes have changed a bit over the years, and I now gravitate more towards Western style games, but come ON.
If you hate it so much, why talk about it over and over and over again? The constant negativity really is getting tiresome.

I talk about how Final Fantasy failed a lot because I feel that they are not beyond redemption, and it hurts that they have chance after chance to make something great again, but miss the point entirely. It's about disappointment rather than hatred. For me at least.

Don't be insulting by claiming the rest of us can only not like Final Fantasy XIII because we are trying to fit in with the cool kids.

I'm sick to death with the incompetent hero thing. I want a hero who kicks ass, takes names and still manages to be a nice guy in the end.
Plenty of those in both JRPGs and WRPGs.

Which? Incompetent heroes or kick-ass heroes? I'm sure there is a large amount of both. I don't dispute that, but if I had to say which one I am sick of seeing, well.

As flawed as XII is, definitely one of my favorite FFs. I have no doubt that if Matsuno had stayed in the lead we would have received a better game. However, I still think the idea of having Vaan is the point of view for the story could have been a very good one. Sure it hurts the power fantasy of players who want to be the big bad knight, but if they had actually played up the uselessness of Vaan could have been very interesting. Imagine playing FF4 from the perspective Edward except you're not as big of a sissy. I actually think that sounds pretty cool.

That sounds fucking awful. Never say that again.

Wait.

You have a girlfriend?

Also today I saw a furry. This is how I know I am now going to a large college.

I wish I knew why I was still in college.

Furries actually attend college in the full gear? (I'm assuming that's how you were able to identify one from a distance)

Oh well, you could have really bad voice acting, or you could have voice acting with a main character on speed.


BAM WE HAVE A FOREST!

I have never wished for an option to turn the voices off more. As I said in the Game Journal, makes me miss Silent Protagonists.

Though, that being said. I got a few chuckles playing Suikoden 4, when people ask the main character questions and he just stares at them, or mimes an answer. It was so ridiculous.

and I sat through those long-ass credits so I could save it post-game so I could transfer the save.

It is actually the save file near the end of the game with you having 108 stars of destiny that you will need. Or at least I am pretty sure it is.

Perhaps, but there is definitely a save at the end of the credits, why would there be if it wasn't for the carry-over? It's not like theres a new game +

I'm not sure if I can trust Mesh's opinion on writing, ever.

I mean the guy writes anime fanfiction

I wrote a fanfiction about you Thoren. :)

The THINGS you do to Mesh. You are so naughty.

If this turns out to be a worthy game, however, no one will doubt Ninja Theory again.

Don't hold your breath.
