I love this game. It's buggy, stupidly simple, button mashy grindy action. For a launch MMO, it's actually not that bad, some slightly odd glitches here and there, but far from unplayable. Every other mmo should take a que from this game, when it comes out, THERE NEEDS TO BE SOMETHING TO DO!  DC Universe has kept me busy since launch (yeah, 3 days I know, yada yada) and I'm dying to do much more on it. The main quests are nothing, they're just powering up the characters. It's all the other stuff I wanna do, like the huge alerts (freaking hard even when overleveled), the duos which I know nothing of yet, the big bosses like Les Luthor, Joker, and the rest of them, and when I say I can't wait to bring the fight to brainiac, I'm not lying. The game is worth trying, even at the 15 bucks a month subscription.

On a side note, I typed this while watching Black Swan....it's not really all that great, just artsy crap and a 28 year old virgin who gets off to Mila Kunis. Replace the ballet focus with video games and Natalie Portman with any game nerd and it's the same movie.
2988  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Which Final Fantasy Has The Best Story and Why? on: January 10, 2011, 02:15:36 AM
My most preferred FF title is probably a clash between VI and tactics. Tactics offered a very dark story that got worse as you went on, which offered me a good reason to power onward. A very medieval political scandal, and the antiheroes who operate under the disguise of bad guys that were, in turn, worse guys. I ate it up, it was like watching a robin hood-like tale play out on my console. That, plus the job leveling, and trying to make my one man army unstoppable was just so much awesome.

VI, on the other hand, was a very different approach with some similarities. The story was more misleading bad guy wants power, lesser baddie wants chaos, uses big baddie to get his objectives fulfilled. It's like no matter where you turned, you were already getting screwed, you just didn't know it yet. But no matter what, you kept trying. And to add insult to injury....

Well I won't spoil that.

Either game was amazing, but idk which I'd rather play on a dull afternoon and my internet exploded leaving me just those options. Tough call.

Just downloaded the beta and finished patching this morning. Played about an hour and a half before my PS3 froze (lol). It's fun, but it's easy to get lost traveling around. As parn said, it's pretty basic stuff.The first area is a lie, btw, cuz as soon as you leave it, everything will kick your ass. That being said, the UI is a wee bit laggy, hope it clears up but won't be upset if it sticks as it's tolerable. Loading times are very decent, I was expecting huge waits between hub worlds but it's not bad at all. Now I like diablo clones, they're fun as all hell, but Idk if I wanna toss money per month at it, considering the vast number of em free to play on PC, but I only played for an hour, I may be a little underwhelmed atm. I think I'm gonna remake my character as a female dual wield flyer isn't my idea of cool, just wanted to mess with the interface and see some things. Gonna try to take some shots via PS3 and load em up here sunday.

Edited because I forgot to look before I lept. In any case, PS3 version got delayed, don't care now, they're admitting they screwed up to begin with essentially.

Hardest parts of the game are dullahan (lol, he raped me dead twice now), and the goat puzzle. Don't ask what it is, you will see if when you get there.
2992  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Golden Sun Dark Dawn in 10 days on: December 01, 2010, 10:04:10 PM
Beat it second day I had it (tuesday morning), best 40 bucks I ever spent.
2993  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Golden Sun Dark Dawn in 10 days on: November 29, 2010, 10:56:19 PM
Got it yesterday, been playing it for about 20 hours now, and I am pleased greatly. Granted, I went in biased because the original 2 were great imho, so unless this took a whole new route and did everything wrong, I probably would have liked it anyway. Music is the same (loved the golden sun intro theme, made me smile), graphics improved but feel the same as far as designs go, and the story is much the same as the originals (slow to start, lots of filler til you get back into the main quest, dire events ensue). It's enough nostalgia to keep me content, and enough new material to flesh out the old tired feeling. My only gripe thus far is I wanna see the rest of the old Colden Sun heroes. Isaac and Garet were cool and all (forget Garet's porn stache, check out Isaac's beard of manliness), but Felix and Jenna were favorites, and Mia was cool too, as was Ivan. Sheba and Piers...meh, but still.

Spoilers.....

It's also the week of thanksgiving in the states, many people could be out preparing for the trip to the family's house, shopping, and/or simply busy enough not to keep tabs.

On a side note, saw a commercial for it today....30% more excited now. Next tuesday can't come soon enough.

eventually be fixed in short order

I think this sums up how badly people try to justify some of the nonsensical shortcomings of this game pretty well.

Quote
more than half of them will still find something else they don't like about the game so they can continue to have something to complain about

Ah yes, the good ol' "you'd complain about something even if it was perfect" argument.

Quote
who genuinely want to play the game

ITT: People who wanted something out of the game enough to stick through a heavily flawed alpha/beta, then spend $50+ on it despite that didn't want the game to be good.

Jaded much? How about you bring something new to the table. As you don't play the game and have no interest in doing so and the complaint train has run its course, why are you even still contributing to this thread?

I gotta say Stephen, I think you're a little too near your fandom right now. From any perspective, be it as an investor, a developer, or a player, FFXIV is a dead-on-arrival product. It has too many problems. If they're fixed down the line, great. It becomes viable. But right now, it's like renting an apartment that lacks plumbing and windows. Sure, you can get them put in, but until the landlord fixes such issues, it's not a place I'd want to live.

It feels very much like you're making the argument that people don't "get it" when it comes to FFXIV, which isn't the case at all. Gamers often get a variety of Stockholme Syndrome, wherein they defend the developer or game despite all rational arguments telling them otherwise. I've been there myself, and I'm sure we all have. There are guilty pleasures we all enjoy, and some of us aren't ashamed. There's nothing wrong with that.

The issue I think most people have with your method is that you attempt to validate your opinion in a factual way, or resort to a defensive tone, neither of which holds up when the situation is this one-sided. I understand loyalty to a brand, to a company, a product, or even standing by your investment and purchases, but you can't be too self-righteous about it.

On the other hand? Yeah, I'll agree that some people go too far with the "hurr hurr bad gaem is bad" tone of voice. It's not fun to sit back and watch while your guilty pleasure gets slammed. Sometimes you just can't and you need to say something. Again, been there, done that. But remember, you cannot then go out slagging people because they have valid complaints, no matter how numerous or aggressive they may be.

In the end, this thread isn't just for praise, awe, and neutrality. It's also for bitterness, disgust, and disappointment. It's for the grievances as much as for the applause. I'd say we all have to respect that.
Dude you're my fucking role model.
2996  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tactics Ogre on: November 19, 2010, 01:56:41 PM
I played the original Tactics ogre YEARS ago, having rented it at blockbuster video alongside parasite eve (odd that I remember it). Loved it soooo much, but got screwed up at a specific fight where you solo this guy (can't remember his name) and he can basically one shot you with ease cuz he's a dual wielding faggot. I remember how I would train for HOURS to get one guy a level or 2 above everyone else and then have everyone kill that one guy to get that huge exp bump, level up, and get the next guy to do it, etc, then spend hours looking for battlefields to try and recruit people, and get those freaking orbs!!!!!! God the grinding was worse than Final Fantasy Tactics, but it was so worth it when you could wipe the floor with your enemies (which of course leads back to my failure fight with that one asshole GOD what was his name, it was chapter 4 towards the end I think).

Eagerly awaiting this for PSP now.

Liked the first 2 for old school fun and was glad the game looked great but did not fall into the trap of slow game speed. The story was shit, and so was the premise, and you should feel bad for thinking it's good.

Seems like a very pedestrian sequel to me, but I'll play it. Not expecting anything bad or anything great, just some good comfort food old school JRPG. If game speed has not been kept the same heads will roll.

You shut your filthy mouth you evil, repulsive, dastardly menace!

I will say this much about the fights. The lack of attacking when your targeted enemy dies is a bit annoying, but I liked it cuz it made me anticipate what I was doing better, setting up attacks much more efficiently and paying more attention to the fights. Not exactly a defense, but I liked that I couldn't just mash the A button when I was not paying attention.
2998  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Golden Sun Dark Dawn in 10 days (Now with possible spoilers) on: November 19, 2010, 03:32:38 AM
This comes out in 2 weeks, and I didn't see a topic on the first 4 pages about it. I deem this inexcusable and have thus created a topic.

Seriously, huge fan of the first 2, especially as gameboy advanced titles. Very well made, good music, solid story, and a very interesting premise with the whole psynergy thing. Not gonna get into specific descriptions but this one takes place a few years after the second one and follows the exploits of the original protagonists children. Very excited to see how it comes out, will be buying day one.

Thoughts, comments, opinions?
2999  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: FFXIV Thread on: November 19, 2010, 03:16:24 AM
How is it possible that FFXIV currently is making Phantasy Star Universe look like a good mmo?

Even better, how are people STILL defending this? Do you all walk around with a big sign that says "Insert stick here" right on your ass? I don't get it, why not just stop playing the game, play something DECENT for a small while, and check on the game when it finally starts to get cleaned up?

Or just keep playing, and tell us how your game is so great.

I want to pick this up, really I do, but I hate Dynasty Warriors-style games. Ninety nine nights, Warriors series, hell even final fight and streets of rage beat em ups get me bored shortly after starting....unless you add 2 player. I could hate the living hell out of the original dynasty warriors, but if a buddy asked em to roll with him on it, I'm there.

That being said, my post is already dead...
