Concerning FFVI I am a bit undecided. A question I would have is would it be sprites or 3d. Personally I think sprites would work a lot better. If it was created with modern 3d for Xbox360 and PS3 I would probably prefer if it came with FFIV and FFV (Similar to Phantasy Star 1-2-3 for GBA). FFVI is my favourite rpg but by todays standards it is quite short.

...I never understood the attraction people had for the graphics in FFIV for DS. All I can say is poor Rydia. Poor, poor Rydia.

To me at least Gear seems like a digimon. Honestly though, I will probably be happy as long as we do not get another Probopass.

.  He would have had her go off on a rant for several pages about what a moron Rand is and how can she be expected to deal with a moron like him who can't even get simple things right!!!!!!!!!!

You forgot to mention she would then drink tea. But I agree that it is great to see changes such as that one. Also as much as I loved the past books, if Jordan had continued writing them I could see them reaching the mid twenties at the very least.

The problem I had with Mat was neither his responses or his actions but rather with his...tone?. Also Talmanes seems a chatterbox compared to his old self. Nothing major but Mat has probably been my favourite character ever since his one on two duel at Tar Valon in the early books.

Strange to say it but I have the odd feeling Mat may be the real dragon reborn. Although that may just be my dislike of Rand and being a fanboy of Mat clouding things. For all I know Padan Fain could pop out of nowhere kill the Dark One and Tarmon Gaiden never occurs.

Probably skies of arcadia.

Or you know...Crash Bandicoot 3 and Medievil (The Gallowmere game)
786  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: If you could have one game localized... on: June 21, 2010, 08:23:21 PM
I would probably choose Atelier Lise from Gust. Its first batch was full of bugs but although it was fixed the game gained bad rep. With Atelier Annie out it seems NISA decided against localising it.

I was happy with the ending although I think it may have been better if they did not explain what the alternate reality was. I loved it when Juliet and Sawyer remembered each other. It was just too sweet.

One question that keeps popping up in my head is did Jack actually pass anything onto Hurley. I thought that at that point every power was gone.

I feel sorry for Jack's son. As Ben is staying behind I assume the alternate reality will play on as normal. With his "mother and father" vanishing into thin air it sure sucks to be him. For all I know he is the reincarnation of the MIB who finally gets the freedom he desired.

Speaking of MIB I kept thinking until the end that they may have just put MIB sitting outside a cafe or something with a slightly sinister smile on his face as he slowly stands and walks into the distance.

I am a pretty random person in real life. I find that I have a lot more success if I get to know the other person first.

It is great if we have similar interests but it is fine as long as they do not hold mine in disdain. I am a good listener and am fine with lots of talking as long as it does not stray into how am I feeling too often.

Appearance wise I do not really mind although I am not a big fan of when some women wear inch thick foundation that makes their face look orange.

As for likes...I may have a slight glasses fetish.

I just finished The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss and the twelfth book of the wheel of time.

I cannot wait to get The next book by Patrick Rothfuss. He has a very unique way of telling a story.

I enjoyed the work Brandon Sanderson did in the Gathering Storm but some characters seemed slightly off.
While Mat and Talmanes seem like they have very different personalities than the earlier books this is to be expected by a new author. Overall I was very happy with it. On a brighter side Perrin is his old self again and Rodel Ituralde suddenly shot up to being one of my favourite characters in the series. (I always had an immense dislike of Rand so I am not the best judge on how he was portrayed. He seemed his regular self to me though)
790  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Nomura would like to make a First-person shooter (with belts and zippers). on: June 21, 2010, 05:44:02 PM
Maybe you can use a belt as a sling that fires belt buckles. Also there could be portals similar to oblivion gates except for the fact that they are giant zippers that when opened are a portal to another dimension.

I used to spend a lot of time in FFXI. Of course I had more difficulty with the game than others. I tend to be a solo player in mmorpgs which may lead to the question of why I play them in the first place. It took a lot of grinding to get the character to a high level and although there were some parts too difficult to beat on my own, for the majority of it I managed okay (Thank you Beastmaster).

I thought that when I quit it would be easy as I had no interest in the end game contents. However it seemed I had grown attached to my character and the amount of work it took to build him up.

I am really enjoying this. A lot of people seem to dislike Cecilia but I find her refreshing compared to the stereotypical white mage personality. I am currently trying to get the Neutral ending.

I find it hard to believe anyone had to grind in Mimana. The lack of a dungeon map made it so by the time you found the boss you were overlevelled. I did not dislike the game as others seem to but one thing drove me mad. You think they would assume that we knew the main character hates kids after the seventeenth time he said it. It was actually surprising the first few times as most main characters are the opposite but that soon wore off.

Speaking of Neku's personality

I always thought at the end he seemed slightly out of character. I always felt it should have went more like

Shiki: I...I am your most important thing?

Neku: Do not seem so surprised. I had amnesia. It was obviously either going to be you or Daisukenojo

Beat: Uahahhhhhh!
794  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: if you could make or produce any game(s) you want on: June 21, 2010, 03:27:39 PM
I once toyed with the idea of the main character being a grunt soldier in a war against an ancient evil. The ancient evil can only be defeated by the "Hero from the prophecy of hope...or something" The twist?. Another person becomes the "Hero" while you remain a grunt the entire game. The "Hero" also never joins your party. Your party does not battle the ancient evil.

Honestly though, if I was to create a game I would probably have it as a country in civil war due to the lack of ability of the country's leaders. Three different storylines would be told with the ability to switch between them similar to Wild Arms if the prologue kept going. The order of choices you make would have effects for the other characters.

The main characters from the three stories would be
Character A
A young father going off to war in what he believes is for the good of his family.

Character B
The wife of character A who has to rally the remaining people in her village to fend off bandits who see her home as easy prey.

Character C
A high ranking officer for the rebels. His choices effect the outcome of certain battles.

Some that I have played in the past that sound similar. Out of these I would say MagnaCarta is the closest match combatwise. It is slightly similar to Shadow Hearts ring but with X, circle, square and triangle being pressed instead of just X.

Mario RPG games
Sands of Destruction

Breath of fire: Dragon Quarter

Dragoneer's Aria (This is only listed because of the guarding system which is a ring type. The rest of the combat is regular turn based)
