Fuck, now I wanna play VIII again. It's like when you have mcdonalds, you know it sucks, there are real burgers you can get elsewhere, but sometimes you just need to have it again to remember why you don't eat it.

Also, I can't remember who now put me over the edge to actually post about the excessive flamebaiting. But if you feel the need to state it's not you, that shows a certain level of doubt and maybe you should be more careful with your posts anyway.

Nah. I never need to be careful about posting the awfulness of FF8. I'm not intentionally flaming anyone, but I will shout from the rooftops about the terribleness of that game.
Generally speaking, it's not flamebaiting when a large portion of people agree with your comment. You may like VIII, but it's pretty well regarded as having obe of the more sucky story development processes in a ff title, and by far the worst gimmick (draw) in all of them. Sure some people like the game, but lard hasn't gone and insulted anyone about their poor taste, lol. But seriously, I didn't mind VIII, it was a good romp when I first got it.

I much preferred when he dropped in on a Malboro personally ;)

Not sure if you know which part I mean, but I'm damn sure I have no idea what you're talking about :)

As far as worst FFs go, its probably no surprise I'm going to point to FFXIII. Linear to a fault, unlikeable cast of characters, fairly simple story made unnecessarily complicated by confusing terminology, battle system that plays itself.
He was making a joke, you're referring to a key point in the third disc. I like his reference better, too, cuz malboros fucking sucked ass in VIII, and if you wanted doomtrain, you had to fight some. Odin popping up to drop one for you was ALWAYS awesome.

Laguna's battle music was awesome. Hell most of VIII's music was pretty good. Draw system aside, its gameplay mechanics weren't terrible, just easy to abuse, like pulling a long summon out to mash through selphie's limit break choices (still haven't landed on the end). Just don't grow too attached to squall as a character, he takes a nosedive later.

I wanna see what the regular fights look like. I mean special boss stuff is special, but you'll spend 75% of the game beating up standard thugs. That's what I'd like to have tried. They could have taken a lesson from the ffxiii-2 demo.

Who doesn't appreciate Tingle? I mean cmon, even in smash bros melee he was awesome, trolling people by inflating his balloon at the worst times. Tingle is great.

Hey, 14 main titles and only NOW they have a person dressed up as a chocobo? Honestly, it could have been worse. At least she makes it work.

Your ps2 may be having an issue. I know some old ps1 games of mine didn't work well on my ps2 at times, like breath of fire 3. Try it on a ps1, or a different ps2 if you can (or a ps3). Otherwise idk dude, game hates you.
2694  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: How long do you play an RPG for in one sitting on: January 11, 2012, 12:34:13 AM
Depends on the game. I managed to blitz through Nier in one 20 hour romp for the first completion. I can essentially play any game til I get bored, hungry, tired, or find something better to do. I've put 24 hour runs in before, with ample potty breaks and nourishment. It's just got to be engrossing, otherwise I'll normally do 2-3 hours on a game.
2695  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: January 10, 2012, 11:53:52 PM
I'm mildly scared that this is the closest I'll ever get to an actual chrono sequel, so I'm praying it'll be good.
2696  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: January 10, 2012, 11:46:09 PM
I totally dropped 2 hours into it. For a demo, that's impressive.
2697  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Chrono Cross first impressions on: January 10, 2012, 10:47:57 PM
Linearity is like a good cheese. It stinks, but some people love that stink.

Given how prevalent it's become in FPS games I'm thinking a less fancy analogue is in order. Fast food burgers maybe.
They all make you fat, but some people are already fat to begin with?
2698  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Worst Final Fantasy game (No online games) on: January 10, 2012, 10:46:25 PM
To be fair, thinking that the entire RPG genre will slip into MMO only is FUCKING RETARDED.
He's got a point. It is pretty retarded to think that, within our lifetime anyway.
2699  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Megaman X! On iOS. on: January 10, 2012, 10:44:36 PM
I can safely say that i will never play that x game, and I have played EVERYTHING that features megaman x. The rage of watching that knows no words. I have been completely offended by capcom, and that's after trying out the asura's wrath demo.

No, most of the hate came from people who universally hate MMOs, and are worried about the entire RPG genre slipping into being MMO only.
This is a idiotic fear, and anyone who thinks this must be functionally retarded.

To be fair that looked more plausible before the subscription model practically collapsed. Combining this with how TOR manages to combine what people liked about Bioware's games with an MMO format and I don't think there's really too much to fear one way or the other now.

There's still the fact some people don't like MMOs of course, myself included generally. If it took 50 hours to get to level 10-ish in FFXI then I simply don't care to make the time investment an MMO like that demands.
To be fair, current FFXI leveling is significantly faster than even most ff games. With a good group you can hit 99 in probably a week if you have abyssea, which comes with all new copies of ffxi. Course, without it and soloing....heh yeah.
