Glad to see you getting into RPGs!

Just be prepared, a couple of posts back when you listed the RPGs you'll probably get... that is years worth of gaming right there. Heck, I have a backlog of RPGs nearly a mile high and I've been playing them heavily for the past eight or so years!

Thanks Az. Sounds like they're both worth taking a look at.

I can relate. I get that pretty often as well, though my understanding is that most Westerners find Asians to generally look a lot younger than they are.

Oh, that reminds me of a funny story.

I was checking ID one day at work for this Asian woman. I wasn't paying a lot of attention, but I glanced at her quickly and thought she looked under 20 so I asked for ID. She looked surprised, showed me the ID and she was 37...

Honestly, that is difficult though.

When I read reviews from others I tend to be the game in a significantly shorter time than it took them. But then if I get obsessed with something and go off doing every side quest, it's hard to estimate how long it would take to just beat the game. You can do it, but it won't be all that accurate.

That's why I, at least, tend to just mention it somewhere within the body of my review.

I took a walk to my local bookstore the other day and saw they had a HUGE section of re-released classics, and older fiction at very cheap prices. Having only read a couple that were in the display I bought myself:

--The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle)
--Treasure Island (by Robert Louis Stevenson)
--Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (Lewis Caroll)

Also contemplating picking up The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, A Clockwork Orange and Lolita. In fact, if anyone has read them I'd love to hear what you thought.

Only read Sherlock so far. And it was fantastic.

When did RPGFan's forums turn into Facebook or Twitter? 

I don't have an account for either for a reason.

Brewfest is currently going on in World of Warcraft.

When not having drunken brawls with Dark Iron Dawarves I must say that Drunken RP is highly amusing.

Glad to see the graphics are a little better.

But otherwise it just looks like more of the same. A desperate attempt to make some money back off a few failed titles. Disgaea is losing it's charm for me. I really enjoyed the first (Etna, Lahral and Flonne were a great, and unique cast). Two had much improved gameplay, but was weaker otherwise. 3 was just a complete rehash with atrocious graphics.

I'll probably skip this one.

So excited for a new one. Bugs me Capcom aren't doing it though.

But I'm sorry, that looks nothing like Dante. Nothing like him at all.

Well, they've lost at least one sale then. Liked the first one, didn't like the second one. Therefore I'll be avoiding the third if it's on PSP.

Now now, no need to be nasty.

Disclaimer: I am posting on this thread, but I am not drunk.

Mind you, not as annoying as the time when I used a Chimera Wing from the menus, flew off into the sky and hit my head on the roof...  and still that Chimera Wing was used up, but it didn't work.  Just tell me 'You can't use that here...' or something.  Don't let me use an item up and then tell me I can't do it.

Heh. First DQ game? I actually like that. I think it's charming.
823  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Quest IX on: September 06, 2010, 05:57:59 AM
I found it extremely annoying. Some I didn't know how to complete early on I had to abandon to take on new ones.

I'm buying the most expensive version possible.

I love how you say the "most expensive version", rather than the best version.

Given, the two usually go hand-in-hand. But it was still funny.

It just needs to die already.
