I know what you mean. I work in a gaming store too so you can imagine how often I buy stuff.

Click the image in my signature. It's a site called Backloggery designed to help you make progress through your backlog of games! It's good fun to use.

this timeline thing is one reason I don't really play any games in this series.

I don't understand why that would stop you playing? It's not even remotely important to the enjoyment of playing. They don't even talk about it in the games.

Although I'm pretty sure there is no evidence to support Twilight Princess occurring after Ocarina of Time rather than before it.

There is actually: the woman who runs the fishing game has a picture of her ancestor there, the guy who ran the fishing game in OoT.

Ah! I did not know that! Good to know! :)

Edit: Actually, placing Wind Waker would be tricky too, wouldn't it? I mean, there's no game so far yet that covers the seas receding. Obviously PH and ST after directly after it, but how does that explain Hyrule being back to normal for ALttP and further on? Is there anything to suggest Wind Waker isn't right near the end?

It doesn't bother me they don't release a timeline. I like the speculation! Haha.

I've played them all and that timeline seems to make sense to me.

Although I'm pretty sure there is no evidence to support Twilight Princess occurring after Ocarina of Time rather than before it. Though after it does still seem more likely. And why can't Wind Waker follow Majora's Mask? Having the timeline split doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. I could easily see it being...

Ocarina of Time
Majora's Mask
Twilight Princess
Wind Waker
Phantom Hourglass
Spirit Tracks
Oracle Seasons/Ages

...without a timeline split. And how exactly do you place the Oracles in a timeline? They don't even occur in Hyrule. I can't see how anyone could give any evidence to support where it fits into. Correct me if I'm wrong but, the Goddesses, Impa (and Link, of course + Zelda if you used the special passwords in both games so you can fight Ganon) are the only familiar characters in it. If anything, with Din, Nayru and Farore being physical beings in it leads me to believe it could be a very early one. Or, a very late one.

I still support the idea of The Wind Fish in Link's Awakening being a descendant/forefather of Jabu Jabu in OoT. Which one though? Who knows? :P

I play a LOT of games and while plenty are good and/or above average in all respects, sometimes it's that intangible mojo that burrows into my mind and stays there for eternity. 

It's often the... "This game is so awesome! But I can't quite put my finger on why" kind of thing. It's like how if someone asked me to list my top 10 RPGs ever and my top 10 highest rated RPGs ever. The lists would not match.

This kind of thing always gets on my nerves. It's these kind of stupid people that want 100% political correctness all the time that are ruining our world. I have no qualms about being free with your sexuality and not feeling you should be ashamed about it. That being said, the writer of that article is an idiot. They remind me of extreme feminists. Who I also hate.

I'm on  my first playthrough so I'm trying to get by with everything I find along the way, I'm trying to avoid guides as much as possible. Yesterday I killed the adjudicator, on the first 2 tries I was owned but on my third try I figured out a way to beat it without being touched, figuring this stuff out by yourself is really rewarding.
It's a fascinating game, yesterday I was entering 4-2 for the very first time, I had just beat the adjudicator and was messing around with my equipment, a BP invades and completely destroys me with a meatcleaver, I didn't even have time to react. I was raped in a matter of seconds.

That sucks. I always wanted to be invaded, though. I have now played the game for nearly 40 hours (probably just less than half in body form) and have not even once been invaded. Boo.
863  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Demon's Souls on: July 18, 2010, 04:24:16 AM
It completely depends on your ranged weapon.  Most of them are Dexterity based.  Sticky Compound Long Bow+5 is typically considered one of the best and that has an S in Dexterity.  You only really need 30 or so in total to use this weapon effectively for all of your standard and New Game+.

Ah yeah. I forgot about the stat bonuses some weapons are affected by. I have the Compound Bow at +2 right now. Not with Sticky. I haven't killed Flamelurker on this play yet so I can't upgrade anything fancy. Again but Dex is like, 14. So that may not help all that much anyway.

Armor doesn't mean shit in anything but PVP.  And even then, only the armor that resists magic is any help at all.  This game is all about dodging if you're melee, you aren't going to get anywhere in NG+ if you don't realize that.  So yeah, if you're having problems winning with Melee pick up a bow, it makes everything easy-peasy.  There are some enemies who will literally just stand there and let you shoot them if you're far enough away.

Does strength score contribute to ranged attack power? Because my dexterity is reaalllyyyy low.
865  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Demon's Souls on: July 17, 2010, 10:54:28 AM
No, closer to white. Believe it or not. I got close to PWWT on most worlds on my first play through. Once I max that out I'm gonna head back towards black after I kill off most of the bosses. Assuming I get that far...

I grabbed the Brushwood armor set from 1-1 which has the highest physical defence, but is ungodly heavy. I swapped from Garl Vinland's Dark Silver set (which is better for PvP--High magic resistance) to that. It has helped quite a bit, but it hinders my ability to roll which is a problem for some enemies and bosses. Especially the armor spider. But it made getting 1-hitted by Tower Knight all the more annoying. Especially seen it takes a huge amount of souls for me to level up.

I must say though, a lot of the bosses seem like they'd be easier if I was ranged or magic. Most of the bosses can only do damage to you if you're close to them. Unfortunately for me, being pure melee, I don't have a choice. But I'm thinking of ditching most of my armor when I fight bosses. If they're gonna 1-hit me anyway I might as well make myself be able to run and roll faster.

I finished my play through a week ago or so. I played Temple Knight with sword and board and, honestly, didn't have that much trouble with it.

New Game+, on the other hand, is hell. It is unbelievable hard. I beat Phalanx but got 1 hit killed by Tower Knight. I tried Armor Spider and I could roll quickly enough. I think I'm getting to the point of throwing the towel in. Being 1-hitted when I have a HUGE amount of health and the best defensive armor in the game is a bit of a bummer.

I played it a while back. Haven't in some time though. I really enjoyed it, but it's in desperate need of more maps.
868  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Where Should I Begin? on: July 16, 2010, 08:46:50 PM
That said, I did actually enjoy playing Dual Strike, it's just that the overall quality of the product really is in the toilet when compared to the other games available.

Oh, I totally agree about the balance. It was ridiculous. But I reckon the game as a whole was so much fun. To me that's more important. I felt Days of Ruin wasn't interesting or fun or anything in-between.
869  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Where Should I Begin? on: July 16, 2010, 09:42:16 AM
If you're going to get a DS Advance Wars game, skip Dual Strike and get Days of Ruin instead.  It's got a somewhat better balance(Still not as good as AW2 though), has online play, and the story is arguably better (Not that you'd play AW for the story anyway).

:O No way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hated Days of Ruin. I thought it was really lame. It tried to be serious and failed, I thought. I loved Dual Strike to death. Huge amount of side missions, commandos, special abilities, units etc. Plus, it's just great fun. If I remember correctly, Samy + Eagle = Win (except for sea battles). Though I agree that AW2 is the best.

I've never played Dragon Quest before, but the one thing that turns me off is the first person battles. I also don't know which one I should get, seeing as a new one was just released. Is the story in IV really that engrossing, Eusis? I know the new one emphasizes multiplayer and the story suffers "nameless-hero syndrome", but the gameplay itself looks fun.

I thought that about the battles too. Until I actually played it. I really grew to enjoy that it's different from other RPGs in that sense. I personally didn't like IV all that much. I could never relate to the characters. I think V is the best of the ones on DS.
870  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: kingdom hearts re:coded gameplay video on: July 16, 2010, 01:57:04 AM
However, I'm actually not overjoyed at the footage or at getting re:coded.  Things are starting to get stale; we really do need KH3. 

You're spot on there. The more of these they bring out the less I'm interested. I did enjoy 358/2 Days though, even if the whole plot progression kind of cancelled itself out at the end. I'm really looking forward to Birth by Sleep.
