Is armor also created through smithing or is that another skill?

Smitheroo.

Occasionally some weapons (maybe armor?) is made through the tech-smithing (forgot what it's called ATM).  IIRC some of Maria's weapons are made that way.
Smithing gives you weapons and armor, Engineering gives you Maria's guns.

Hey after all the assholes I saw walking around with naruto head protectors, nothing can truly surprise me anymore. I have more then enough dislike for the rest of persona 3, but that whole evoker business always threw me off. It just seemed to capitalize on some emo fad I wanted to be no part of. I actually knew a girl who carried around an unloaded handgun when she dressed up as her created character from the persona 3 universe. Did I mention she was a loon?

On topic, I decided to try playing Disgaea again, which I played for only a short while when it first came out. Didn't really get behind the character art so much then, but I played some more of the nippon stuff and started to like it, specifically makai kingdom.

Parasite Eve 1 and 2
Brave Fencer Musashi

Shame I sold most of the originals, even worse when I lost a bunch of em due to a storage unit fiasco. I'd list Ps2 rpgs but i think all the ones I have are already listed here.

Touche, I guess I just really hated XII that much.

Persona 3....no nevermind fuck that piece of emo shit.

You are going to burn in hell.
At least it won't be because i thought my 9mm pistol could summon my inner demon to eviscerate my enemies if I shot myself in the head with it.

WHO THE FUCK THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA? AMERICANS ARE DUMB AND IMPRESSIONABLE ENOUGH WITHOUT BEING MOTIVATED TO ATTEMPT SUICIDE FOR MORE POWER!

If the characters make a happy face, you have created 1 item. For every time the bar fills and they make a happy face, you make 1 item. If they frowney face, ufail.

At your point in the game, you can make a couple decent weapons. Just keep resetting til you get a price area of like 500 to 600. You can make a few decent items in that range, and even better, if you save and pay attention, you can make some money creating and selling stuff you make. Trial and error are key here, or a friendly gamefaqs guide for those without patience.

XII...everything that was bad about XIII stemmed from this piece of shit.

You're going to need to explain this one, because given their opposite approaches to design (large world with story taking a backseat versus a tunnel where story is first and foremost) this doesn't make sense.

Maybe blaming XII for XIII being shit ia a bit extreme, but everything i disliked in XII was there in XIII. Shit characters, bad story, crappy music, and a lack of understanding of what their fans enjoyed in previous games. Course, the real reason I may have disliked XII so much was just because of how much I hated XII.

Btw, the only thing I hated in VIII was the story progression. Squall's devolution to a little bitch from a cool badass sucked, much like Cloud in VII, though Cloud at least did it humorously. I never understood why prople hated VIII so much. Plenty to do, decent characters, easy pick up but no walk in the park for vets (unless you grinded alot), it really was a decent title.
2603  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Worst Final Fantasy game (No online games) on: January 08, 2012, 01:32:48 PM
Definitely II for worst ff title. I just hated how much I had to grind to progress. Magic sucked all the time, enemies were annoying, and even though I beat the game, god help me I can't remember any of the plot. I just rememver the 4 guys who died and then got the add on story for the gba version. Maybe it's because I played a first generation game 15 years after it came out but I hated it.

Close runner ups include XIII and XII. XIII is pretty obvious, the only saving grace being the battle system which I kinda enjoyed abusing. Characters were annoying, especially the aussie bitches, and sazh had such a sad story why the hell was he the comic relief? It didn't add up right. Oh yeah, why is pulse the australian outback, and what does squeenix have against australia? XII...everything that was bad about XIII stemmed from this piece of shit. I rank II higher on the hate list only because I didn't enjoy anything about it. XII sucked everywhere, except for the gambit system and fran. She was definitely the greatest pixelated piece of ass on ps2. Scary, but true.

The rest of the ff titles all had good points and some bad points. VII was probably the leaat flawed of them all, and VII the most before being a bad game. Spin-off wise, tactics is king, followed by crystal chronicles, then the others were meh to okay. Worst was definitely without question tactics advance. I hated progressing through it, and those god damn judges could eat my asshole, fucking arresting my characters.

Idk, lunar 2 had its moments, like blue dragon master outsourcing children to countries as killing machines. The one big thing I enjoyed was Leo and his awesome commentary in battle. Nothing like popping a healing nut only to have the good sir Leo shout "Sample My Goods!". I enjoyed my lunar 2 experience, but then again I am a sucker for a good rpg damsel in distress type story.
2605  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Games You'd Like To Give Another Chance And Why? on: January 05, 2012, 01:14:05 AM
I have a stack of ps2 rpgs sitting on my shelf that i vow to one day complete or replay.

Xenosaga III: i just wanna list this one cuz i am in fact replaying it now. I love this game, was great gameplay and so damn pretty for its time. Kinda wish we'd get a similar style game brought out soon for not wii, but yeah....

Shadoq Hearts Frome the new World: 5 times I have started this game and got about 40% through it. I think the change in music always kills me. Not the silly story, the weird fucking character or the indian who use gun-fu, I can deal with all that. But that battle muaic change always ALWAYS pissed me off.

Radiata Stories: I played this game for a solid week, kicking everyone i could and fighting every dude and chick i saw. Then I found out i screwed up one bit of a quest to get this one guy on my team, and could not get him on that playthrough now. Game was pulled and thrown across my room. I'd like to try again....but damn all that kicking people was arduous work.

Grandia 3: This is a atrange one. I beat this eons ago, but then I steamrolled the other 2 this year and I don't think would be correct of me to not replay 3 now, which sounds eaaier than it is. Grandia 3 was some of the worst fights in a game ever. They all took forever, and forget boss fights. Get a beer hat, you're gonna be busy for a while.

FFXII: I beat XIII last week and killed a long gui (easier than i thought). If i can do this I should be able to stomach that shitfest of a story...then again.

Legaia 2 Duel Saga: You know, I played and liked this game. Then I got my ass kicked in one spot for 2 fucking days and said k bye. I should go try that game again.

Persona 3....no nevermind fuck that piece of emo shit.

Ar Tonelico 1 and maybe 2: I enjoyed one til that one certain scene that anyone who is familar with this series knows. Then it all felt weird all the time. I felt dirty, like my mom was gonna sneak in my room and catch me rubbing one out kind of dirty. Seeing as my mom passed away 2 and a half years ago, maybe I can give it another shot.

I'm pretty dilligent with my games. I generally won't start one unless I intend to finish it. It takes some serious dislike or trauma for me to not complete a game, or a better game comes out. Persona 3 is probably the one circumstance that arguea againat my statement. I just really hated playing that game.
2606  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lunar 2 Eternal Blue on: January 05, 2012, 12:39:53 AM
Some wet-blanket hero treasure-fucker and a naked blue woman go off to save the world from a villain who wasn't beaten hard enough the first time, and are joined by a ragtag motley crew, that parallels Lunar SSS's cast, as they meddle in each other's problems.

EDIT: HUNTER...treasure hunter! right.
That may very well be the best description of lunar 2 made in a negative fashion that I've ever heard that was in fact....completely accurate. Wow dice, no lunar love?
2607  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: smell ya later, 2011. smell ya later forever on: January 03, 2012, 10:52:42 PM
2011 was 9 months of shitty terribleness followed by the best 3 month evar!!!!

Quit Radioshack (this alone fucking skyrocketed my love of 2011)
Got a new job as an audio video installer.
Met Harvey Keitel (which is related to number 2)
Didn't get the flu this year.
Played FFXIII and didn't find it to be the absolute worst game ever.
Didn't have to fix my ps3 (this one is mucho importante)

Overall pretty good year. Would live it again.
2608  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Community Photo Thread: 5th Anniversary Edition on: January 03, 2012, 09:24:26 PM
I just went looking through my phone for photos, and noticed that out of some 200 photos, I have no pictures of myself. I need more photos of me.
2609  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: PlayStation Vita Announced (Feb 22, $249/$299 for WiFi/3G+WiFI) + some games on: December 31, 2011, 06:37:49 PM
I'm at a loss. I want the vita, but it seems like it may have to wait. The memory card fiasco and battery life are really aggravating. The games that are coming out right now don't interest me terribly, outside of mgs hd collection which i have on ps3 and 360 and maybe zoe collection. I think i may just opt to nab a new pc instead.
2610  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Just when we thought it safe to play on psn.... on: December 31, 2011, 06:26:16 PM
You know what's sad? It's pretty much guaranteed that people who don't have money to waste will still buy games. Piracy seems to be something people with money do. I mean, who do you see get hit with copyright lawsuits? Not the broke kid who just saved up for 4 years to buy a ps3, but the college student with 4 harddrives woth of downloaded music and movies, whose parents are in their huge living room shocked to see their perfect child who went to good schools and got everything he wanted in life could do something so horrific. Piracy is a crime for people with cash. I'll stick to working for my desired items in life.
