 As someone who plays a lot of SRPGs, I have to say, this game is worth playing.


Heh, and a dude like me who's typically not an SRPG player likes the game as well.  Go figure, eh?

I'd take 1up's review with a grain of salt.  Hell, I'd take my upcoming review with a grain of salt.  Though I don't necessarily disagree with the flaws 1up mentions (and even the flaws they don't mention), it sounds like they didn't get too far into the game before completely dismissing it.  They didn't even mention the game's good points, like the music.  

Yes, classes can be switched in a flexible manner and some classes can be considered non-traditional.  

No, the game does not force you to use certain jobs in certain missions.  But it does suggest what kinds of classes would give you the highest chance of success in a given mission.

I like the game so far.  I'll have a review for the site by the end of the month as well as a review of the OST.  Impressions so far: a good, but not great, SRPG with an engaging story and a stellar soundtrack.  

Lately, I've found myself unexpectedly impressed by handheld game soundtracks.  I'm sure Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles -Ring of Fates won't be winning any awards, but the OST is amazing.  By the same token, XF is nowhere near the level of FFT or Tactics Ogre as far as SRPGs go, but the music is incredible.  

The character art isn't that bad.  It's generic, but not horrible.  The art is no better or worse than that of previous Wild Arms titles.  Now Shadow Madness is a game that had godawful character art.

PSP's become *the* go-to system for SRPGs.  FFT, Disgaea, Jeanne d'Arc, Wild Arms XF...

When I preordered it, the person behind the counter didn't see it, I mentioned it was on the website a week ago, she read a few titles on her screen and when she said "Shin Magenta" I said "that's it.  Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3- FES."  

Shin Magenta, Shin Magnetic, Shin Magma, Shin Megan... close enough.  So long as it gets preordered.

"Twisted" by Savin Ill.  Savin Ill's a hip-hop/funk band using live instruments and the guitar riff on "Twisted" is great.  Rockin'

Why the fuck can't I find Wild ARMs XF?  :P

It should be at EB tomorrow or Monday despite the fact it shipped out on the 11th.  Lazy.


Losfer, I'm playing Wild Arms XF to review for RPGfan.  I will say that my initial impressions are very positive.  Game's really fun (and challenging), the music's fantastic (I'm reviewing the OST as well), and the story so far is quite good.  

I don't want to say much since, well, I want people to read my upcoming review (I've only had the game in my possession since Monday).

Reminds me a bit of Hatebeak, a death metal studio project where an African Grey parrot sqawks black/death metal vocals.  I also remember going to this backyard show where a grindcore band was playing and the house dog was barking at the lead singer the whole time because, well, grindcore singing sounded like barking to him:P

I'm also reminded of this YouTube video that isn't on YouTube any more of a 2 year old girl thrashing out to Divinity Destroyed.  Man, that was so adorable and awesome.  I hope my hypothetical child enjoys thrashing out to Divinity Destroyed.  That band is awesome.  

I usually see cats residing at punk houses.  Those cats are either completely insane or extremely friendly/trusting.

I'm into beer tasting (I've tasted over 200 in my life and have tasting notes for about 50) and the most recent gem I had was Dock Street Illuminator Bock Beer from an upstate NY brewery.  It had body, a lovely toasted malt flavor with some nice hop and spice notes, and went down smooth.  

Life's too short to drink bad beer.

Just really interesting varieties of electronic music (usually danceable) that I typically don't hear in other venues. I can't say much more beyond that since I'm not too versed in the subgenres of electronica.  I think others like SandInYourShoes may be able to better explain it.

That's funny you mention that, Dincrest, about gay bars. In Vegas, I feel like this is completely true as well.


I think that's just a universal rule.  I'm straight but have/had many gay friends over the years so I'd go bar/club hopping with them.  When I was an undergrad at UAlbany, there was this one gay bar a lot of straights went to because it was one of the only places with a dance floor folks under 21 could get into.  I was friends/classmates with one guy who DJ'd there occasionally, so I'd go to see/hear him spin.  When I was living in NYC, I was friends with a lot of musical theater people and went to a few bars there.  Again, awesome music.  Just recently, a friend of mine celebrated her 21st so we went bar hopping in the Philly "gayborhood" and this one bar we went to had incredible music.  I was disappointed at the lack of a dance floor, though.  I wanted to dance.  I so should've asked one of the bartenders about the music.

So Deggy Weggy Poo- didja hook up with the cutie in that 2nd picture?  Or at least one of her less attractive friends:P

Elru, you'll find that quite a few of us would list Basch as our favorite FF12 character.  I didn't get that far into the game, but Basch was awesome.

Best I can offer you Dag is some encouragement in the pursuit of fulfillment in your life.  Loss of any kind is a pain in the neck to deal with and I hope the next part of your journey helps you find something great.  

Dag may come off like a bitter bastard in his board persona, but he did something for me that was totally awesome beyond words, it meant more to me than he probably realizes, and I love him for it.  I refuse to say what it because I'd like to let this good deed remain unbragged.  I'm a weirdo like that.  

dasch- Belgian craft brews rule!  Hoegaarden (esp. Hoegaarden Grand Cru), Duvel, Chimay, LaChouffe, McChouffe, Delirium (Tremens and Nocturnum), and Krait... OMG Krait!  I don't consume beer often (I allow myself a "cheat meal + beer night" once a week and that beer and cheat meal have to be excellent.)  

Some things I ponder in life:  

Why do gay bars always have the best music?  

Will the world end if, for once, a lying liar from Liarsburg New Jersey is not elected into my state's political office?  If you think your state is corrupt, New Jersey has been more corrupt for millenia.  And people wonder why we New Jerseyans have that "middle finger in your face!" attitude.  

Why don't smoke detectors have a "never mind" switch?  I mean, I've accidentally set off smoke detectors while cooking stir-fry and I had everything under control.  Smoke detectors really should have a "never mind" switch.  

Why do peoples' answering machine messages always say "I can't come to the phone right now"?  Do people think we're too stupid to figure out the obvious that because your message has come on you can't get to the phone?

I love the very end when

Who's a bigger nutcase threat to gaming as we know it?  Jack Thomson for his frivolous lawsuits or Uwe Boll for his poop-tastic film adaptations of video games?
