I definitely don't buy as many games as I used to, that's for damn sure. I buy games I have a definite interest in and know I'll want to finish, rather than years ago when I used to buy whatever sounded good and I'd like to play 'at some point'. Those games accumulated and I no longer cared to play them years later so they, like Xenosaga, got sold. That's pretty much the only reason my backlog shrank.

Plus I mainly jump on Atlus games right away because they tend to go out of print in like five minutes. :P

Right now I'm debating if I should even play Final Fantasy XII, or see what I can sell it + the guide for.

Damn. Garu and Zan both looked like wind to me. Even though DS and DDS (...) both call it a force spell, maybe I just thought they were using different terminology. :P

There's earth spells in DDS too. They're called Tera there (for Terra, which makes sense). I wonder where Hama comes from, Mudo sounds... Latin, I'm guessing.

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

Void Death is useful enough to keep equipped for the long haul.  I keep it on Serph at all times.  It blocks those annoying curse attacks too. :P

Yeah, I equipped it on Serph as soon as he learned it. Of course, I did that then died, then forgot I had to set it again, but Gale having it by default saved my ass. :P

Almost done the castle dealie.

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.

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.
2950  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.
2951  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Another countdown from Squeenix on: July 31, 2009, 11:18:30 PM
I read that. I never did play Lord of Vermilion, though. :P

It's now a VI for me.
2952  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
2953  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
2954  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.
2955  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
