You too can have your very own suikoden pachinko machine.

trying to rush this game so I can get ready for Rune Factory 4 and finish up Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny.


Really hyped about Rune Factory 4, but since I am European and the 3DS is region locked I am out of luck. No importing for me this time.


Playing Wizardry VI at the moment. The game is pretty brutal at the moment but I am really enjoying myself. It does look like I will have to draw a map though. I have been trying to understand the classes and races at the moment. The manual is helpful but it still leaves unanswered questions.
I also need to decide should I have a Bard or a Thief. The thief can unlock stuff better than the bard but the Bards sleep inducing musical instrument is kickass. Thought about having both but neither seem strong enough to be a frontline fighter. Only problem I had at all with the game at all was the low SP at character creation but downloading Cosmic Forge rose the probability of getting usable amounts. The combat itself is great fun.

Played Wiz 8 back in the day, only one I really ever played.

They are similar to Might and Magic series, but a bit more in depth and "hardcore". The storylines from 6 through 8 are more or less continuous, and you can carry your party through the whole way, but 6 and 7 are pretty archaic compared to today's standards. 6 doesn't even have an automap, and 7 does, but it's related to skill level.

Thanks for the advice. I have seen a lets play showing the beginning of the game and I don't think the age of the game will bother me. Guess I will have to resort to drawing my own maps though. Brings back memories of those fighting fantasy adventure books I got as a kid.

Just play Wizardry IV.


Anyway, if you get the wizardry games from GOG, don't play Wizardry Gold. It's busted and always has been. Original DOS W7 is available as an extra. Use that.

And if you get Wizardry 8, please try out my fast animation mod :(((

Had no idea about that. How bad is it? I don't mind playing the DOS version but I thought Gold had added in a lot of stuff.

I actually have very little knowledge when it comes to PC gaming. I have yet to play games such as Planetscape:Torment, Balders Gate, the Ultima series(4 is free on GOG so I will have to try that), Wizardry or Neverwinter Nights. One of the reasons I want to play Wizardry above the others is due to being in a dungeon crawler mood.

I will be sure to try the mod if I ever find myself actually getting past 6 and 7.

Although I probably will not get this anytime soon, the game seems interesting. It seems to have improved a lot on the first with such things as all money is pooled together rather than divided and the appraisal system is removed.

I have both, and I have to recommend the 3DS. The Vita is a lovely system but its really lagging in games right now.

Hopefully it will be similar to the PSP and go from having barely any to almost matching the DS for its rpg library.

It probably has not been the first time and I doubt it will be the last before the series is finished. Then again my friends are probably going to love my reaction when/if

Latest book spoiler
The true king of westeros Stannis Baraethon kicks the bucket. Stupid ambigious ending. Obviously Stannis chances of surviving the series is miniscule but I can still hope. Because hope overcomes everything in a song of ice and fire.

Civilization 4: Baba Yetu

Love this piece.
608  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Recently watched Episodes of TELEVISION BOX offerings! on: June 03, 2013, 04:38:29 PM
Edit: New page so just warning that these are Game of Thrones book and show spoilers

Spoilers for both.
Are you talking about replacing Robb's head with Greywind's? Nope. The deaths occurred literally in the final 10 minutes, but seeing as there is one episode left, they could still do that next week (along with Catelyn floating in the river).

Thanks. Yeah, that is what I meant. Hopefully they do add it. My friends only watch the series and I have been waiting for the show to get to the red wedding ever since the Ned incident in season one. I am a horrible friend who enjoys watching their reactions as their favourite characters die.

1. What is your favorite word?
Triumphant (As in "that idea was most triumphant)

2. What is your least favorite word?
Saint "Patty's" Day (One of my foreign cousins called Paddy's day this and I instantly grew an irrational hatred for the word. Okay hated is a bit strong but I do dislike it)

3. What turns you on?

4. What turns you off?
Anorexic thin. I actually don't mind chubby girls at all but being bone thin turns me off.

5. What sound do you love?
The sound of rain.

6. What sound do you hate?
The scraching sound my old PS2 makes. (The disks are not damaged at all but the console sounds like it is being slowly eaten from the inside)

7. What is your favorite curse word?
Gobshite or shitbiscuit (There is no real taboo with most swear words in Ireland. The closer you are to a friend, the more you swear in conversation with them.

8. What profession other than yours would you like to attempt?

9. What profession would you not like to do?
Librarian (This used to be my dream job until I discovered what it actually was about)

10. If heaven exists, what would you like to hear God say when you arrive at the pearly gates?

We fucked up big time and need to send you back. Remember the words blue marmalade..blue marmalade...

For anyone that has seen the episode and read the books.

did they do "you know what" with Greywind?
611  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: June 03, 2013, 05:40:11 AM
And the lack of dynamism wouldn't normally be an issue but you backtrack a lot in Morrowind/jump around between towns a lot. But they never really change so it gets repetitive.

I agree with you that the NPCs doing nothing is immersion breaking. I tend to install a mod these days that gives them a routine. It really makes the world feel more alive.

I do disagree about the towns though. I thought that they did a good job making the towns seem different. Not disagreeing that there is a lot of backtrack though.

One other thing to mention is that the Morrowind community although helpful tends to be filled with elitism. They don't take critisism to the game well which is ridiculous as the game like every other has its faults.
612  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: June 02, 2013, 10:06:17 PM
Just read that a giant Morrowind overhaul got released.

Debating if I want to get it off Steam and see what all the Morrowind fuss has always been about...


Morrowind is my favourite Elder Scrolls game but there are probably a few things you should know before buying it. There are a few things that turn off players of Oblivion and Skyrim who try Morrowind after the later installments.

The first is the combat. The combat is based off of invisible dice rolls. This means that you hit an enemy with your sword and depending on your stats, you may miss or hit. The lower your blade skill the more chance you have of missing. Due to your lower stats at the beginning of the game, attacks missing a lot of the time turns players off.

The second thing is the lack of full fast travel. Fast travel in Morrowind is basically like the carriage system in Skyrim. You can only fast travel to cities and not all cities are connected together by fast travel. Meaning you may have to travel from town A to Town B before getting the option of fast travelling to Town C. You cannot fast travel to Dungeons outside of the mark and recall spell. While sounding bad, it does raise the aspect of exploration which I loved.

Lastly is the absence of Quest markers. Meaning you have to judge where to go by the journal. The map may update with the location of the site but you have to complete the quest without any aid outside of the Journal.

Those three are the main thins that turn people off. If you can get past those factors you will find a great game. The world feels truly alien unlike the more traditional fantasy setting of the later two. There are a lot more weapon types and spells. It contains all the fun things you would expect from an Elder Scrolls game.

It does have the same levelling system as Oblivion though so if you disliked that you could always get a mod that replaces it with a different one. I personally use Galsiahs leveling system.

Nier: Kaine's Salvation
One of my favourite songs from NieR. I love how a lot of their music has lyrics. I can't think of much games that do and even those who do don't have it to the extent NieR does.

FFVII Crisis Core: The Price of Freedom

Final Fantasy X: To Zanarkand

Radiant Historia: The Red Locus
I actually loved all the battle themes from Radiant Historia. I liked how they were all named after a colour.

Black and White: Sailor Song
If you have played the game, this song will forever remain in your head.
614  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Alright peeps, lets try: Top 10 Favorite Games on: June 01, 2013, 11:21:12 AM
In no particular order

1. Final Fantasy VI

This game had charm, and lots of it. Gameplay wise it is probably where the series starts losing whatever dificulty it had but it is still a blast to play. I also find the sprites have passed the test of time better than certain early 3D games like FFVII and Legend of Dragoon. Not to mention you can suplex a train.

2. Suikoden II/V

I have actually played V more times than II. Story wise and music wise II is probably better but V kept drawing me back. I thought war battles were better done in V. I was not a huge fan of them in II.

3. The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind
By far my favourite Elder Scrolls game. The world felt more alien than oblivion and Skyrim which really drew a player in. Exploring was really fun too. I actually liked the absence of a quest marker although some of the journal hints were confusing if not plain wrong. The combat is a bit difficult to get used to although if you can manage to get a skill past 45 you will be able to hit the vast majority of the time. The ashy voices of the Dunmer are also awesome.

4. Rune Factory 3
There was such a huge jump in quality from 2 to 3 that it was surprising. Frontier was great but 3 just seemed to have everything and more.

5. Crash Bandicoot 3/Spyro the Dragon
Yes, these are here. No, it is not a mistake.

6. Shadow of the Colossus
Great game. The satisfaction of finding out the weakness of a colossi was probably the best part of the game for me although some just click with you instantly
Dat Beard

7. Trails in the Sky
This game just clicked with me. It is one of the few games where I spoke to every NPC repeatedly without regret. Each one seemed to have their own mini story going on rather than the usual "Welcome to town A" or "I have heard the villain is villainous"   

8. Radiant Historia
I am a sucker when it comes to time travel games.

9. Thief 2: The Metal Age
I am not normally a big fan of stealth games but really enjoyed playing this game. The first game is also great.

10. Shin Megami Tensei III: Lucifer's Call
I really enjoyed the minimalistic story going on and the gameplay was also great.

Honourable Mentions
Crash Team Racing (I prefer it to Mario Cart)
Tomba (Play it)
Guardians Crusade
Tales of the Abyss (Only played it recently on 3DS but it jumped up to being my favourite tales game)
Xenoblade (My favourite game on the Wii...although it does not exactly have much competition)
Breath of fire IV (I hated this game for years. It was just so different to the other titles but then something clicked making it my second favourite BoF game.
Valkyria Chronicles (This game was just great)
Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness
Persona 3/4
615  Media / The Soundroom / Re: Random VGM on: May 31, 2013, 09:09:17 PM
Soma Bringer - Idea

Rune Factory Frontier - Home
Rune Factory Frontier - Kross

Because you can never have enough Rune Factory

Tales of The Abyss - Meaning of Birth

I actually prefer it to The Last Last Battle music.

Portal - Credit Song
Love it but do not listen unless you have beaten the game. Portal 2 credit song is also awesome.
