Wow, a NIS game that's NOT an SRPG?  Might be hope for them yet.  :P

A Witch's Tale is reportedly a side-scroller as well, starring a li'l witch who dresses much like Etna.

I really loved the #Reload soundtrack too, which was done by the Korean band N.ex.T.

I have that soundtrack.  And yes, it is all kinds of awesome.  It's the Guilty Gear XX #Reload: Korean Version.

Song of the moment is "If Only I Were Gay" by my buddy Seth Bisen-Hersh.  I think it's fitting for many of us on these here forums.  


There's bound to be a solution
Short of prostitution
For my lack of sex life

Girls aren't always in the mood
And when you are they think you're crude
But guys are in the mood every day
Why can't I be gay?

Girls will make you work so much
For just the slightest feel or touch
But guys are willing to give it away
Why can't I be gay?

I know there would be some traumas
Like being hated by some
But it would be worth all the dramas
Except maybe swallowing cum

Girls will always want to wait
At least until you've had one date
Just skip the date go straight to bed
Let's start by giving head
I say, oh why can't I be gay?

Sure I would get some all the time
But a dick up my ass is scary
But girls already seem to think
That I'm a flaming fairy
*don't know why*

So since
Girls and boys should get along
Why does it always feel so wrong?
Hey getting laid is a pretty strong incentive I'd say
Just picture it
In the bedroom we'd always stay
Having sex 4 times a day
No dealing with emotional junk
I wouldn't even have to get him drunk
And if I found a hunk I'd shout hooray
If only I were
Undeniably, so reliably, homosexually GAAAAAAAY!

Goatee-man looks like Seifer Almasy (FF8) in a sad attempt to look as cool as Shinjiro Aragaki (Persona 3) and failing miserably.  

But as with everyone else, pretty visuals, yeah yeah yeah, I expect pretty visuals in an FF game, but I too want to see some gameplay footage.

Dincrest that's not THAT hard to do.

For us, no.  But for a dude living in a sexually repressed country like India.  Yeah, I'd say that's a challenge.

Regardless, it's all pretty ridiculous and worthy of the point-and-laugh which is totally what we all did.

So Dincrest, you're no more part of RPGfan staff members?

I don't see any other one who could preview/review our game, you seemed the only one to love old-school games, and most of all indie games :)

Blace is right.  Yes, I left the RPGFan staff back in May but was convinced in June to come back as a contributing editor, as my green bar indicates.  I have a review of another indie PC RPG title in the works, but I'm not at liberty to say what it is.  

I do love indie gaming, but believe me there are others on staff who are even more into old-school RPGs than I am.

Eden's looking good.  I respectfully disagree with Mesh in that I like the font.  It looks good to me and, most importantly, it's readable.  Perhaps being an old fogey with bad eyesight, I'll take large sized, readable fonts over ye olde English and/or the kind of tiny font used in Gust titles.

I cannot say I'm surprised in the least.  I'll bet in his college days he took the challenge of watching 4 hours of American porn and not getting a hard-on.
5393  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Question About Future Xenosaga Projects on: August 25, 2008, 02:33:42 PM
No worries, Jet.  I have mixed feelings about Xenogears myself.  Fantastic plot but wooden dialogue.  Fun battle system when the people are on foot, but gear battling wasn't as much fun.  Slow pacing in all aspects: plot progression, character movement, dialogue speed.  Ill conceived platform jumping segments (hated Tower of Babel.)  Excellent music, but the same compositions tended to repeat often.  

Still, it's one of the few JRPGs of its kind, especially among those released outside of Japan.  That's partially why I think it and the Xenosaga games are held in such high esteem when, in fact, they're not quite the best RPGs out there.  

To tangent, I'm frankly quite tired of swords and sorcery, knights and castles RPG settings.  I want more space opera sci-fi or futuristic giant' robot stuff like in Xenosaga.  I want more cyberpunk like in Soul Hackers.  Heck, I want more modern/contemporary like in Persona or Earthbound.

Was Xenosaga I-II for the DS any good? The idea of a portable KOS-MOS is intriguing. Makes me wish I could read Japanese.

http://www.rpgfan.com/reviews/xenosagads/index.html Long story short, the game is decent, but nothing fantastic.  Some of the story events in Ep II are a little different since the game pretty much follows Shion rather than do any character switching.  The music was horrible, though.  

Don't Takahashi and Monolith Soft have that DS RPG Soma Bringer coming up?

And I'll agree with the first poster in that good sci-fi RPGs are few and far between.  Besides the Xenosaga games, Anachronox and Mass Effect are good outer space ones.  And though it never came out in the US, Soul Hackers was an excellent cyberpunk RPG.
5395  The Rest / General Discussions / The Avatar, Title, and Sig Thread! on: August 25, 2008, 09:41:44 AM
Me am have 2 avatars.  The one I use for my staff profile is of my favorite skull on a "Donnie" paintjob my buddy Giarmo (aka Guitar Guru) did for a customer's guitar.  

The one I have on the boards now is Sly Boots from the RPG Anachronox.  Fantastic game.  

My title is something Yukari said to Junpei in Persona 3 and is something I'm sure Sly has heard from everyone who's ever known him.  

My sig is a placeholder sig till I can think of something more creative.

When in bad neighborhoods, people can sense fear like dogs can so always move fluidly like you aren't nervoue.  Also, don't draw attention to yourself in any way.  Wearing nice clothes is a dead giveaway that you may have money or valuables.  

A friend and I were accosted by a group of 12 year old kids in west Philly.  They came on either side of me and punched me on the side of the neck.  I'm a fairly big guy (5'10", 185 pounds) and have a high pain threshold so I just walked on like it was nothing.  They started following us, but the friend I was with got them to lose interest in us and we got out alright.  

When walking around slummy parts of Indian cities like Madras, so long as I wore shabbier clothes, made no eye contact with anyone (thus not drawing attention to myself), ignoring everything around me, and not giving off any nervous signals I was generally left alone.  This was pretty key for me, as folks like that can smell Americans a mile away and to them American= money.  

Safety in numbers definitely.  I would never go to a questionable neighborhood unless I had at least one friend with me.  Knowing where crowded areas are that you can duck into works.  And making sure I don't draw attention to myself, don't stand out as a target, and make people disinterested in me works too.  

But no matter what, it's much tougher for a woman.  No matter what, women will always be targets to accosters.  So extra measures will need to be taken.

To add to my own insufferable vanity...

 (I'm a very smiley person in real life as Pat and Damian can attest to, but I don't like smiling in photos.)

Capoeira's such a beautiful martial art.

I have nothing more to add that you guys didn't already say.  That song was bad though nowhere near as bad as St. Anger.  Metallica died with the '80s.  I think the only '80s era Bay Area thrash band that's still kicking ass and taking names is Testament.  

That Pyramaze song was f'n awesome, though.

I'm reminded of a story years ago when some old bag in Florida called the authorities on a girl with a lemonade stand.

EDIT: I'd rather the girls sell fruit and veggies at a roadside farm stand than sell cocaine or their bodies in some dark alley streetcorner.
