For that matter, why is it Zan in some games, Garu in others? :P

Wow, that's a few questions in a row there.

I completely forgot about this, but someone translated those Persona 3 4koma:

'She probably meant FFX, not FFVIII, Junpei.'

ROFL I love these.

This might be somewhat relevant:

http://hiimdaisy.livejournal.com/26044.html#cutid1 - Spoilers for the first hour or two of Persona 4.


This wins. I liked the description of Yosuke's Persona, Disco Ninja Frog! I'd love to see her do a P3 one.

I resumed the operation of Persona 4 after I interrupted it earlier for Digital Devil Saga.  Or, as the plebeian rubes would say in their common vernacular, restarted it.

I got the Dojimas maxed.  My only real goal now is to work over Naoto...when I can. :P

Just hang out with her whenever she's around. I started that link at least a week later than the guide said it was available, and I still got it to 7 and I didn't hang out with her too much before December.

Digital Devil Saga - back at the Maribel's base. Got my ass kicked by regular enemies three times, time to start using Void Death methinks. :P

SMT Persona 3.  There just isn't enough depth in these games in my view.

what
That was about when I stopped reading. Too bad it was almost at the end of his post.

Digital Devil Saga, Solids' (or wtfever) base.

Getting my ass kicked less = good. Red eyed statues = creepy. Mantras = fun. Can you tell I've been grinding a little? :P

Think I'm done with most of this base.
2947  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: How do you like your combat/story mixed? on: August 01, 2009, 02:32:51 PM
I tend to love a really good story, so long as it ain't like Disc 2 of Xenogears where you're watching more than playing.

That said, just because a game has a great story doesn't mean I'll give it a pass for shitty gameplay. If I'm gonna go hours in between pieces of story, the battle system better be somewhat enjoyable.

I read that. I never did play Lord of Vermilion, though. :P

It's now a VI for me.
2949  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPG Backlog? on: July 31, 2009, 11:03:49 PM
Fire Emblem GC (incomplete)
Fire Emblem Wii (unopened)
Fire Emblem DS (just got last weekend)
I'm actually quite surprised you haven't beat them by this time... XD

So am I, believe me. XD I'll get to them. Eventually, I swear!

Anyway, I mentioned P3 because it's the first game in a while that's made me want to go back and play again to get/do everything. I'm sure I'll want to with some other games (especially MegaTen ones), but I know it ain't gonna happen. I have a really nasty fall class schedule coming up, so I probably shouldn't even THINK of video games after this summer til..oh, Christmas. :P
2950  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: "Start your journey now, my lord." on: July 31, 2009, 09:41:57 PM
Strange... since we put that up, the front page will only give me MegaTen ads. (But I still get Evony on the boards.)

To be fair, I think it's the only pic we had for the game :P
2951  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Another countdown from Squeenix on: July 31, 2009, 05:27:44 PM
Hmm. I like the art.

The fact that 7 was written as VII and not, well, 7 probably made him think of FFVII.
2952  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPG Backlog? on: July 31, 2009, 05:13:19 PM
Do you guys seriously 100% RPGs? I mean some of them have some obscure bullshit and it sucks having to replay a 30-50+ hour RPG just to have you have 100%..

Not really. I used to, in games I love a hell of a lot, like Chrono Trigger. I used to love doing all the secret dungeons and optional super-bosses though I may have quit around the time I was playing FFX-2. I think I did everything in FFVII too at some point. :P I'd love to do it in P3 - max S-links to get all the special Persona, 100% compendium, all that. And the secret boss. I hear she's a pain though :P

Just curious, did you ever make it past the third screen? :P
Fuck if I can remember. I don't even know what I DID do. :P
2953  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Super Game Journal Turbo II - The New Challengers on: July 31, 2009, 05:05:55 PM
Why would you restart because an optional boss kicked your ass?  Just come back later.

I'm under the impression he loaded his save and went to fight King Frost, rather than restarting the game because he died to King Frost.

I have decided that Eusis is the only person on these boards with basic reading comprehension skills.
I was under the impression that you stopped P4 to go back to DDS, only to get your ass kicked by King Frost :P
2954  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPG Backlog? on: July 31, 2009, 03:57:47 PM
This pretty much sums up my backlog. :P

I think my problem is that I keep going back to games that I have already finished (repeatedly). I played through Persona 3 five times through and have spent 433 hours and 25 minutes on it, with Persona 4 following right behind it with four play-throughs, eating 378 hours and 13 minutes of my life. I'm never going to finish any games if I can't move on... :P

You have no idea how much I was tempted to replay P3 again. I came close many, many times this month, and that's the very reason why I stacked all my MegaTen games on top of my PS2: to remind me why I SHOULDN'T replay P3, at least not yet. :P

When I count games I actually HAVE, my (realistic) backlog looks something like:

RPGS:
Persona 2 (...eventually I'd like to play both)
Digital Devil Saga 2
SMT Nocturne
The.. rest of Devil Survivor
Fire Emblem GC (incomplete)
Fire Emblem Wii (unopened)
Fire Emblem DS (just got last weekend)
Final Fantasy XII

Non RPGs
Metroid Prime: Corruption
MGS3

..and for some reason, I never actually beat God of War II. I think I got stuck in some room or other. :P

Not counting stuff I don't have. If I listed that, I may be here all week.

I sold my Xenosaga games. I realize this may shock some of you. :P

What the hell, I just now got on the front page, ads for Sears warehouse sale.
