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.
2690  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.
2691  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.
2692  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.

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?

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.
2695  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.
2696  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Worst Final Fantasy game (No online games) on: January 10, 2012, 10:31:49 PM
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.

Chrono Cross isn't really non linear. You have to go through certain areas in order to open new areas. You can visit areas you shouldn't be in yet, but it's not really useful to do so in most cases. Sidequest wise, yeah you can do a shitton of stuff off the main story path, but most of it is en route to your destined spot anyway.

In any case Chrono Cross has the best boss music in an rpg, which alone makes it one of my favorite games ever made.

I gotta say, if the demo is a solid impression, this feels great. I had no problems with paradigm shift outside of commando being shit against multiple enemies, but now you can designate how they attack, either your target or their own, and that works on all the paradigms now. Fine tuning they call it, and it is sweet. The music is better so far, love the new battle theme, and the cinematic actions during boss fights are cool so far, but I haven't fudged any yet so I don't dislike em yet. Mog is funny, though I don't approve of the voice. Jumping, even though it's not hugely amazing, makes me enjoy travelling. Chocolina is the best chocobo cosplay evar. If XIII had been like this when I first saw it I would have had it the first minute it was released. This demo was great, and square enix may finally be catching on if they keep this up. Eagerly awaiting January 31st....

Hey after all the assholes I saw walking around with naruto head protectors, nothing can truly surprise me anymore.


So...that phased you that a primarily teenage demographic wears a singular article of clothing in support of a fandom they enjoy but decades of grown adults standing around shirtless and covered in archaic war paint at 4 in the morning for the same reason, on top of probably owning hundreds of dollars in clothing to support same sports fandom didn't? >.> Just sayin'...

On topic I'd actually love to give Fallout 3 another chance. New Vegas really taught me how to properly explore an open world hybrid like the series evolved into; unfortunately I was still too much in my mindset of disliking the change from it's top-down ancestors to fully get immersed into the game. I saw a friend playing in on 360 the other day and that rekindled my interest. Unfortunately there seems to be some unspoken ban against the PS3 version of the GotY version. PC? Got it. 360? Got it. PS3? I live near the second largest city in the state and there isn't a Gamestop, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, not even a Vintage Stock which carries it. :-\

This forum isn't large enough to express my hate for professional sports and the idiocy that follows it. I wouldn't condone anything sports related.

My pooch headbutt the door in my room open, and decided to pay a visit tonight.

Made my heart all warm and fuzzy-wuzzy.  :)




Heh, the first one looks like he's eyeballing you for a hit of some weed, the second looks like he had himself a nice drag. Dogs are cool.
