Guys. GUYS.

I have the perfect tagline for this. Check this shit out:

"Lightning DOES strike twice."

You're welcome, Square Enix.

put simply i like characters that go against typical gender roles. or at least the ones i grew up with. if she fought with a staff and -aga nukes i would have much less interest in her. along those lines i might of liked hope if he wasnt such a douchebag for most of the game.
She does not go against 'typical gender roles.' If anything she codifies them. She starts off as a insufferable bitch because she "had to do it to protect Serah" or some shit, but it was actually a worthless front to hide the weakness inside her. When she finds out that being an insufferable bitch is actually not productive in doing anything but being an insufferable bitch, she stops and basically becomes an ineffectual background character whose only purpose was to say what the party's goal was then spout out a nonsensical monologue at the very end of the game involving 'achieving the impossible.' She was not important or effective in any way, and her 'going against gender roles' only served to hurt and distance people she cared about.

Thank you for phrasing this more eloquently than I have thus far.

Nice breakdown of it. I wouldn't be adverse to a future Souls game having an easy mode. As long as they respect that "easy" doesn't mean "half damage from enemies, less HP on baddies." The atmosphere, progression, and tension in Dark Souls are one of the best parts.

This is so fucking bought it's not even funny. No wonder Kojima didn't want to waste his time on Rising.

And my aforementioned characters with personalities!

a new Chrono Trigger game

XIII-2 is practically that.

Take that back, right now. Never, EVER compare XIII or its spinoffs to CT. Now go stand in the corner and think about what you've done young man.

Every character in CT has a personality. Every character in FFXIII combined together, all at once, ALMOST has a personality.

I did still enjoy ME1's gameplay. It was more RPG-like, and a bit more explore-y.

The. Impossible. Game.

Doo dodo doo.

At least they can still get the gameplay right.

I am a really awesome guy.

I had two thoughts about the plot threads it introduced.

1) Entirely made to attempt to justify their ending.

2) Fucking ridiculous.

Code:
So the Leviathans noticed that all the species they enthralled were creating AIs that rebelled... so to counteract this... they created an AI. Which rebelled. Face fucking palm.

That said, I guess the gameplay was still solid. But my god, they need to just fucking stop.

Well, the story is that Basch was to be the main character, then Balthier. S-E got all pissy that the mains were a bunch of adults and not some teenage hussy, so Van was created. Executive meddling gone too far.

That game should have had an awesome story. More character development and more focus, could've been as good as FFT.
1227  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Squeenix teases 13-3? on: August 30, 2012, 07:32:19 PM
imo the last FF with a male lead was FF9.

FFX Tidus?
FFXII Vaan?

I think we were getting some sarcasm :)

Also, if Square Enix wants to become rich quick, just give me either an HD remake of FF9 or FF9-2. I will forgive them for everything else.

Playing this a lot. I love Dark Souls.

I couldn't be more excited. Especially about FFIX-Chips. The tracklist-- oh god, the tracklist.

Called it.
