I think that Advance Wars 2 and Advance Wars: Dual Strike are better than any Fire Emblem game that I've beaten (4, 6, 7, 8, and the DS remake of 3.1), especially when you throw in multiplayer.  Days of Ruin wasn't very good, but neither was Radiant Dawn.  I'm going to give AW the edge for fun multiplayer and for how awesome Dual Strike is. 

Dual Strike was really, really good. Agreed here.

Shiny FOES await you, John-san.

Actually, good points. The art design in the worlds was all top-notch (and to be honest, I actually remember liking the Fantasia world). I think more what I miss was the multilevel, platforming and kind of "you have to find the exits out of here and explore" deal that KH1 had going on, whereas with BbS, they were definitely great looking, but they felt like big boxes. And actually, I like Traverse Town, even though it is pretty empty. I think it's because it was the first 'world' in a KH1 game and it was full of awesome music and Final Fantays characters running around with Disney characters and it was pretty much the essence of KH.

And I really hope KH3 just decides to act like 3DS didn't happen and go back to the 'save everyone from BbS and fight Xehanort' awesomeness they were brewing with BbS.

I CAN DREAM DAMMIT

BBS ruined Neverland for me.

To this day I'm not entirely sure where anything in Neverland BbS is. I don't think they've EVER gotten Neverland right, except maybe in KH1, and that was just because of the flying boss fight against Cap'n Crunch.

Really? I have to say, I agree with your thoughts other than the worlds in 3DS-- I actually thought they were the worst in the series-- just big huge open rooms devoid of anything other than stuff to bounce around on. They sure looked nice, though, especially Tron. I'd really love a combination of the complexity (to the point of being obtuse sometimes) of KH1's worlds with the combat of BbS.

I'm up to the final bosses in Kingdom Hearts 3D.....and oh wow do I hate the battle system in this game. I'm constantly finding myself dying because the game is not responding as quickly as I want it to. I really just need to grind to an obscene level so I can just obliterate these jerks. >.>

I didn't mind the core of the battle system, but I hate the focus on 'absurd action' and monster raising in place of a legitimate party and the slightly more grounded combat in KH2/BbS. I wouldn't be unhappy if flowmotion got the boot in the next game. I definitely felt like the game wasn't as responsive as it should have been, especially in Riku's case.

Also a plot that makes sense pls

Annnyways, I think I'd skew more towards Fire Emblem once we enter the Advance Wars: Days of Ruin territory. That's the only game I wasn't enthralled with, even though by all accounts it should have been my favorite. It just felt like something was missing.

This could be the first day of a glorious turnaround.

I really want Square Enix to make an explosive comeback this year and totally bring everyone back into the fold with a glorious return to RPG glory.

"Please be excited for E3 this year!"



Their E3 announcement will consist entirely of "Come see us at the TGS!" (and maybe a new Tomb Raider game expansion pack DLC iOS microtransaction-based game).

That's not a bad assumption, though I have no basis for saying this.

Well, easy boss, sure, but that doesn't mean the song isn't awesome :)

I'm going to buy this game just because of this song.

EDIT:

Uh, I guess it's a boss theme spoiler?
883  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: February 27, 2013, 07:43:24 PM
Or at that very least, they could localize Bravely Default WHICH I WOULD HAVE PLAYED IN JAPANESE BUT HEYO REGION LOCKED 3DS

I agree, Neal-- playing new SMT games is allll right with me (oh hello P4). I'm much more excited for that and Soul Hackers!

I'd like to verbally congratulate myself for calling Mr. Steinman's Alien reference being within 15 minutes. I did also make a face with the "Most of my students haven't heard of it." part.

And I know we've belabored this quite a bit, but it is really funny to me that you love System Shock, but really hated KOTOR. Eh, to each their own.

(On a side note, read a review in PC Format giving AC3 a 2/5. It. Was. Beautiful.)

Mr. Steinman

yes.

Hey, I'm just trying to get into college...

Respect for one's sensei is respectable.

Or as Rex of Rex Kwon Do would say, YOU BOW TO YOUR SENSEI!!!
