I watched the first couple of episodes because I love the books so much, I was terribly disappointed.

Every book translated into another media (except perhaps video games) always loses something, because there is simply too much to fit in. However, I wasn't prepared for how much of a disappointment it actually was. They got the character of Darken Rahl all wrong, even his appearance and habits. He looks like a JRPG villain and talks like one too.

I never expected a faithful adaptation but this really takes the cake, my boyfriend won't even read the books now because the TV show is so bad. Which is a shame because the first 5 books or so are VERY good. It had so much potential.

Just read on the main page about the games protagonist not being Marth but a customizable character of your own choosing. Personally that sounds rather cool and I'm on board with it however the whole thing about your support conversations changing depending of what character you create sounds risky.

If it is as simple as Male character is able to support with A B and C and Female character is able to support with D E and F then I don't see many problems arising, but if it goes so far as to say it's changing support conversations based on unit type, gender AND appearance then that sounds like it's just going to be a mess, and it would be hard to generate any meaningful conversation with other characters if his or her backstory is so ambiguous. But maybe thats just me.

Lost Odyssey had those touching little short stories in the form of Dreams. So that gives it a little edge over FFXIII for me.

Otherwise they both are on the same level for me.

Square Enix needs to make an RPG where it continues the format that FF6 through FF9 (or FFX) followed.

Make a fun turn based system that isnt this pseudo MMO shit, let ATB be able to be toggled on or off, let the player control his entire party without bullshit, have a world map or area selection that doesnt suck, have story and characters that matter all the way through, shit..

Is it that hard to make a Final Fantasy game that doesn't suck ass these days? We haven't had a good one in 10 years.


Though maybe they have forgotten by now what it means to make a good turn-based game. All their recent best sellers and ones who have had the highest acclaim have come from their action-rpg titles. I guess that is just the direction they are going now.

I would dig an FF7 remake, not because I am a graphics whore - I just think it would be fun to see such a large part of my childhood being celebrated and given a makeover. Would they keep some of the things intact though? I mean, FF7 was probably the most sleazy of the franchise with the likes of Don Conero and his gang of raping thugs (also, sex dungeon and transvestitism.) More recent Final Fantasy's have never approached that again and I wonder if they would like to keep a squeaky-clean image.

It would be really, REALLY cool to fight the likes of Ruby Weapon and Emerald Weapon in this gen graphics, or even ps2 graphics. I still get a little thrill when diving in a submarine under the sea and shitting myself because Emerald weapon is 2 centimetres from my face and rapidly advancing.

But yes, I think FF7 being remade is a good thing. Though I am not hoping for the kind of detail that was put into Final Fantasy XIII, which was although a great technical feat, it didn't impress me anymore after a chapter or two.

I doubt this will add much to the topic but I enjoy handhelds and console rpgs equally. Although I hold both at different standards. Obviously length and graphics have to be taken into account when comparing the two.

My DS gets just as much love as my PS2. I don't have a PSP right now. I used to yeaaars ago, but there was nothing interesting on at the time and I gave it to some kid. My PS3 pretty much gathers dust, but I don't think it will be like that forever.

Light Warriors is neither a grind nor a slog. Its a nice little game. While not quite the girl youd take home to mom, its definitely the non-gay male friend who you would take to Sunday dinner, who would help say grace and then thank your mom very sincerely for the corn bread.

That is an awesome paragraph!

It makes me wonder whether the writer thinks that all gay men wear their sexuality on their sleeve and she would be able to pick up on their homosexuality within moments of meeting them or that gay men don't say thank you and mean it sincerely.

It's kind of funny reading this thread.  I've never watched an episode of the show (for no particular reason) and have always thought that it was about people trying to get off an island kind of like Survivor but without the reality TV show aspect of it.  Now just reading the last page people are mentioning super powers and monsters.  Big ol' wtf from me.

Anyways, I'm kind of curious if anyone noticed the excessive commercials that were played during the series finale?  Some sites are reporting that it had 107 commercials run during that time which clocked in at a minimum of 45 minutes of commercials.  Anyone notice this?

They were charging $900,000 an Ad. So i heard.

In the case of P5 the graphics will probably have the same style as P3&4 but with more detail. 

Apparently not.


If it is P5 on PSP - what a let down. Not saying anything bad about the PSP, I just had my hopes up for a PS3 title (god forbid something I end up actually enjoying comes out for that system).

Human Centipede

The film creeped me out, but not half as much as my own imagination creeped me out before I actully watched it.

That was awesome, thanks, CDFN. I can't wait for her to upload more.
