...but fuck balls if I asked them to lleave the battle system alone if they remade it again.


i dont know what this  means for CTs battle system.... but im also drunk.
Personally, I'd want to have AT LEAST a real time battle system, maybe like the LMBS from tales, or a more action oriented scheme like dragon's dogma. Hell if I had my way all rpgs would be action systems like dragon's dogma.

See, arguing this over a forum takes too long, too much to type and most of it gets lost behind other posts. I don't dislike turnbased games, but I'm not going to ask for them instead of games like dragon's dogma, or ni no kuni, or tales of anything. Turnbased is boring, lacks strategy, and makes an otherwise gripping adventure a challenge in how long I can smash my x button before I notice I should heal. And say what you want about the shin megami shit, I've played a few and they operate mostly the same outside of status effects actually working well, meaning I need to heal for those too. Bash XIII all you like, but it required a tad bit more strategical thinking in later fights then hit hit heal repeat. Even tactical rpgs give you positional control so you can target enemies in groups better.

Yes, I enjoy the hell out of games like Chrono Trigger, but fuck balls if I asked them to lleave the battle system alone if they remade it again.

Implying any of those lord of the rings games were any good though....

I mean, don't get me wrong, turn based isn't unplayable or anything, I'll play anything if it interests me. It's just we have so much more knowledge and experience now...why limit what we're doing?

Actually, Agent D, X was a big step forward ... For turn based games. X-2 was much better for the atb.
Touche, but turn based is so ancient anyway. Why would you go back and reinvent the wheel basically, especially as few games at that point (rpg wise) were still turn based. Nowadays, even FFXII's style of play are so much more entertaining and engrossing, turn based is mindless jamming on the X button for fights.

275 pound bench press TIMES TWO MOTHER FUCKERS!!!

MY POWER KNOWS NO LIMITS, RAAAAWWWWRRRRRR.

I felt bad though cuz I totally farted on the second press, and it was loud.

I'm trying to figure out how Alisha could think X-2 was a step backwards in gameplay. X was a massive step back in gameplay.

funny i thought the gameplay of X-2 was a horrible step backwards.
In what way was X-2 less then infinitely more interesting gameplay wise than X? X had some strategy, but it was controlled, no sort of threat while you considered how to approach a fight. X-2 not only kept you thinking, but also gave you options to prevent (or in most cases delay) enemies attacks and commands. Compared to X, X-2s level of gameplay was like nes to n64.

I saw some meathead at the gym today doing bicep curls, and the fucker curled 85lb dumbells...this upset me greatly because I cannot curl 85lb dumbells, so I tried to curl said dumbells. Got them up to about halfway where the bicep would be at full exertuon, and noticed that I was an asshole because I cannot lift it. Feeling even more angry, I grabbed 75lb dumbells and with the rage of a forest fire, I curled each dumbell three times.

Agent D. was angry, Agent D. lift heavy object. Agent D. not so angry anymorr.


Also of note, 450lb shrug attempt...got the barbell up from the ground position....held it there as I felt the callouses on my hands rip off from gravity, shrugged one MOTHA FUCKIN time, and dropped 450 lbs faster than a fat guy on a slim fast diet.

Yes ladies, I'm still single.

Long story short, if you put the Final Fantasy logo on it, people will buy it...no matter how stupid it gets.

That being said, I'd play through X-2 again, the gameplay was great.

I almost peed myself in glee.

But there's no discussion about it, Ashton's right the story was terrible. Doesn't stop what I said being accurate. At least XIII-2 had good gameplay and music, and more not terrible story. Caius was still the best not badguy villian in the series too. Story still sucked....seriously, I think X-2 and XIII-2 were made from the same basic thought process...odd.

Lol, Kalm. I still remember my first playthrough of FFVII when I tried to get past the swamp and didn't realize that the little scene with the big snake was the cave entrance. I ended up spending 2 days at Kalm just leveling and figuring out where I fudged up. Ended up killing the snake once I was so retardedly powered up.

Now they're doing the same thing with XIII.

Let's give XIII a good ending, show some character sacrifice, and save the world with faith in the human (?) race.
Now let's have XIII-2 fuck it all up, show why we shouldn't believe in ourselves, and prove that change does nothing...oh and kill the character we saved back in the first one.
Fuck, bad move. Let's do another attempt with XIII-3. What's the worst that can happen, people don't like it? They'll buy it anyways.

I have disdain for pretty much the entirety of BioWare's catalog (everything post KOTR). I don't recommend any of them.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution is fantastic, though. It might be my favorite non-downloadable game of this console generation. Witcher 2 looks awesome, but I haven't played it.
Deus Ex human revolution is available for download off xbl, so it meets your criteria of downloadable title.

Heh heh.


Dragon's Dogma is probably less of a western RPG and more of a japanese beat em up with wrpg elements, but I'd stick here anyways cuz it's awesome.

Mareg was king of Grandia 2. His ending was that of a king of warriors!

I do have to add one now, dawned on me last night. The entire Wutai sequence in FFVII, especially if the whore steals all of your materia, as I sometimes got lucky and was left with a couple. I mean seriously, you have crap weapons since you can't upgrade til after Wutai, no materia, and a very annoying walk to the town without anything but the plain vanilla attack and some items, which you probably only had a few xpotions for healing purposes and a bunch of useless hi potions. It could easily be one of the most i.furiating areas in that game.

Speaking of FFVII, is it odd that I still remember the code for the space ship to release the blue huge materia? It's either circle circle square x or circle circle x square, but 90% sure it's the first one.
