Even if Sony spends their entire conference apologizing that doesn't actually make anything better.  A quick apology is fine but frankly I would rather hear about the NGP.
I can already tell you something about it. Apparently it's now called the playstation vita. So help me though, I hope that's a false rumor, cuz it would be the single most embarrassing console name since the Wii.

Drakengard was too much for me to deal with.  Great game, but just too depressing.  Nier has pretty colors and a promising future; Drakengard is just bleak.

To what extent was it promising?  They didn't cure black scrawl on Yonah, did they?

What I meant was that as you're playing the game, you're successfully defending people, helping people... there are actual good things happening.  I shouldn't have said future; the ending indeed makes me want to LARP Persona 3 with real guns.

Drakengard was just scary and depressing the whole time.

Um, correct me if I'm wrong but....

wasn't the whole black scrawl just the inner soul of the person the gestalt body was saved for trying to get out, instead of leaving and becoming one of the enemies whose names I can't remember for some reason?

Again, I could be wrong, I mean I steamrolled the game in 2 days and did essentially everything but wipe my file clean (ending D). It's all still fresh-ish, but it's not like it stuck real hard in there.

Damn, how bad would games be ruined if they merged? Seriously, Call of Duty:Ivalice? Final Fantasy Pro Skater? Dragon Quest:Modern Warfare?

I dunno if I posted in I posted in this topic or not yet, but I will now anyway. Nier's gameplay was pretty meh (generic devil may cry-ish beatings, combo system was bleh). Add to that the severe lack of weapon variety (sword, long sword and spear), and gameplay wise, it's all but disappointing.

Course gameplay doesn't mean everything in the game. The music score was astounding, literally enough to drive me through the rest of the game. The areas all had an amazing feel to them just because of the music playing through each of them. All the time I spent grinding for items and sellable stuff was doable just because the music kept me motivated. Of course, epic music leads to some epic boss fights, and most of the bosses were pretty astounding themselves. The last boss of act 1, for example....yeah not gonna spoil it. Let's just say it was amazing (and hard, he killed me like 5 times in a row on normal). The story definitely binds it all together, but it's weird. Sometimes it's spot on, and sometimes it's a bit much (like the forest area...yeah just strange really). But after the first playthrough and you get that little extra bit of story and all of a sudden the game is in a league of its own storywise. It's been mentioned, but you gotta play through it at least once to get a full feeling for the story, or even moreso a full appreciation. I mean, the whole bit about Kaine's past....that was well written. I tried so hard to imagine it while reading, like a good book, you know?

The makers did a really good job in the story department, and the musical score is incredible as well. Just a shame the gameplay was sub par. I still put this at at LEAST a 9.2/10. I gameflied my copy, but I intend to buy this one next time I got some cash on hand.

I though I was gonna have to reach for some medication while reading that, before I got to the end sarcasm bit. x.x
The sad thing is it's not completely outlandish. I mean, you can't honestly say no one here has ever done the full day grind.

If you shake it enough, it will eventually be quiet. At least, according to Peter Griffon.

I'd personally get used to being behind the trend of gaming, and start investing in a nice comfy toilet seat since the only gaming you'll probably get in is on the throne.

Don't do the crime if you can't do the time?

Besides, I bet many of us work full days and then grind for 12+ hours playing FFXI or (gigglesnort) FFXIV or RO or WoW or what have you. Come back when you run 36 hours of abyssea taking your level 30 Warrior to 90.

How about a MMO chocobo racing game a la FF7?
My god I spent days making the perfect chocobo, between breeding several different wonderful status ones with ridiculous speed and stamina (always capped at 999, but yeah), followed by the lame hours of breeding each one to get the gold finale, I hated it so fucking much. Course, when all was done, I managed to win races by just draining my stamina and walking to the finish line. Teioh couldn't hold a candle to me.

I would never touch a DQ MMO, it would be a horrible endeavor, doomed to fail and ruin a generally well made series of games.
2949  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: I guess Square Enix hasn't learned their lesson... on: May 26, 2011, 03:27:01 PM
Squenix didn't develop Nier, they just published it. I doubt they'll actually have three different FF MMOs running at the same time, so FFXV is out as well. I'm guessing they'll go for something original this time.

something original this time.


Something here just doesn't add up....

Also, Nier was pretty awesome, but it was mostly because of the awesome music. Gameplay is pretty generic, and even then it could have took some lessons from Capcom. I'd lean more towards an everquest revival, or maybe (god forbid) a FF tactics MMO, not gameplay wise but based in the Ivalice universe.

Apparently they're making a new MMO, and Wada claims he's nearly comfotable with XIV too...what the hell are they smoking?
2951  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: FFXIV Thread on: May 25, 2011, 12:09:04 PM
Wow lot of hate in this thread and lot of people that I do not think really know what there talking about. We do mmo show every Sunday and have people from FF14 in there all the time. They are enjoying the game now and most give it a score of 7 or 8 out of 10. This is after massive changes that are done in 2 updates a month from the new team. The biggest problem now with the game itself is the missing content to continue on. Since they are 3 months or more delayed in rebuilding in the life cycle of the game. The community that does enjoy the game are having to wait now for more game play.

I have the PC version and broadcasted it a few times to 100+ audiences live, with few people who where not impressed by what it looks like now. But I am waiting for PS3 myself to really dig in. I think by the time that comes out it will be full MMO that we did expect on day one.

BTW anyone that thinks they have opinion of game that only played the beta you did not even touch what FF14 is now so I really wish you guys would stop the hate.
I really wish that when you judged a game, you did so with the fanboy glasses off, because anyone without a damaged retina can tell FFXIV should have been scrapped, and anyone sorry enough to pay for it deserves their money back and big fat apology from squeenix.

Would you pay full price for a computer that doesn't have a mother board? How about a T.V. that doesn't have a power supply? A game console without a disc drive? A happy meal without a toy? No, so why would you buy a game that isn't finished, or worse, is broken? I could understand a lack of content to an extent, but it was missing certain functions that you really need to play it well. It's because of fanboys like you that Square Enix releases shitty titles, slaps a big ole FF logo on them, and gets away with releasing crap. Christ Sega did a better job of releasing an MMO than SE did, and PSU was terrible shit (I can't really call PSO an MMO since it wasn't really all that massive, but thats me and even then PSO>>>>>FFXIV).

I heard the store is gonna be sometime this week, but yeah, I'm not holding my breath. Also, CDFN yeah Sony's been dropping the ball lately, but look at your other options...

Give MS money and pay for XBL meanwhile they flood you with adds and an online service that's no better/worse than the competition (assuming you don't red ring before hand)
Play all three good games on the Wii...and hope you don't finish them before the end of the week.
Play on your PC, which is actually not a terrible idea if you can afford maintaining a good PC (I can't)

Sony's fucked up real bad right now, but generally, they've been the least bullshitty of the companies, offering good games, free online, and until the last 3 weeks a solid and secure console. I'm still pissed about this whole thing.but sony's still further up on my preferred list than any of the others (not by much though).

Eagerly awaiting MGS Peace walker and Lord of Arcana. Both need full screens and a damned controller.

I want to say something rasonable about how some people are getting really stupid about this situation. But when you see people bitching about that they are getting good games for free, you know something is wrong with this community.
I could honestly not care less about the free stuff being offered. I want the functions I mentioned earlier implemented already. If I wanted bargain bin titles from Sony, I'd go out and buy them, but I cant change the music playing during a game on my ps3, nor can I talk to someone who's not playing the game I am. These are things that matter to me. I have nothing against the games they offered, mind you, but I'm not impressed that they took games that people probably already own, and offered us them for free, nor am I impressed that they're giving us a month of a service that so far still isn't functioning for free, unless I already paid for it and then get 2 months. All their doing is giving us stuff they don't lose money on. Now if they credited everyone on PSN with 25-30 dollars, that would have been respectable, and again if they add some functions they've been fooling around on, like the 2 I mentioned, would have been nice.

Not like it matters, I'm gonna go back and play on my PS3 when it's back on again anyway.
2955  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: George Hotz (geohot) VS Sony. on: May 17, 2011, 01:31:05 AM
I'd sacrifice all the free shi....stuff they're offering for upgraded functions on PSN, like fucking cross game chat already, and maybe the ability to play music during the games like failbox.

Also, wow that free stuff is so....crappy.
