5416  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Odin Sphere on: July 06, 2008, 06:57:06 PM
I've said this in previous Odin Sphere threads and I'll say it again.  How is it that Odin Sphere had massive slowdown, yet Grim Grimoire (also a VanillaWare developed game that often had MORE going on simultaneously than Odin Sphere did) had none?  The time between those two games wasn't lengthy either.  

I liked Odin Sphere for what it was and it's easily worth the 16 bucks the guy paid for it.  It's worth the 20 bucks new you can get it for nowadays.  Yes, it has massive slowdown, gets repetitive, can have unbalanced difficulty (the slimes in Cornelius' final quest come to mind), and has flaws, but it's the most gorgeous game I played in 2007 and I liked the Rashomon-esque storyline.  I like seeing a single story from multiple viewpoints.  The voice acting was stellar in both English and Japanese.  I thought the game was quite fun, particularly in small doses.  Cornelius rocks!  Of course, I was able to overlook the flaws more so than others were.

Canadian geese are pests and I'm surprised it isn't open season on them, at least in Jersey.  They're everywhere, multiply like crazy, poop all over the place, mess up the ecosystem, poop all over the place, are ugly & loud, poop all over the place, are very unpleasant to have around, poop all over the place, are often aggressive to people (they're as tall as little kids and if a goose pecks a little kid, it hurts and the goose will be relentless), poop all over the place and are reason enough for me to want to declare war on Canada.
5418  Media / The Soundroom / Judge my metal band... please? on: July 06, 2008, 10:58:02 AM
Their loss.  Do they even realize how hard it is to find bass players?  A good bass player is IMO the hardest thing to find in a band since there are fewer of us running around than guitarists and even drummers.  

So you got kicked out of the band.  If you as a bassist can hold a solid groove and pick up on material quickly you'll have little trouble finding another gig.  Or you can take the opportunity and use the time to woodshed a bit and get better at bass.
5419  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Xseed has two surprises for E3 on: July 05, 2008, 09:36:15 PM
I'm interested.  I've always liked XSeed's localizations, both in terms of quality and in what they choose to localize.

Well, at least Wesson cooking oil's better than Pabst Blue Ribbon, which is the swill of choice for New Jersey rednecks.
5421  The Rest / General Discussions / Ronald McDonald part of "giant gay agenda" on: July 05, 2008, 08:12:32 PM
Gee, and I thought Burger King was the one with the gay agenda what with that one commercial of the dude waking up only to find that creepy king in bed with him.  :P

All joking aside, this AFA sounds like that one uber-paranoid and uber-vocal soccer mom who ruins everything for the rest of us.  Like Kyle's mom in South Park.

Perhaps we should take a cue from Mrs. Brozlovsky and blame Canada for its artery clogging clusterfucks like poutine and donairs.  And declare war on them for the damn geese.  Yeah, that's the ticket!  :P

(I know this is a wacko response, but how else should I respond to this thread?)
5422  The Rest / General Discussions / Americans Are Fat Motherfuckers: A State-by-State Ranking on: July 05, 2008, 08:05:38 PM
I can see why NJ is not a fat state.  We probably vote in corrupt politicians so we can burn calories fuming about corrupt politicians.  Even at Rutgers, despite the artery-clogging clusterfucks known as Fat Sandwiches we expend calories either chasing buses or fuming about the suckiness of the bus system among other things.

Yeah Sierra Mist is a citrus soda in the vein of 7Up or Sprite.
5424  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Suikoden VI on PSP?! on: July 03, 2008, 08:05:26 PM
Even if it's on PSP, you could still connect it to your TV to play it on the big screen.  The TV out is one reason I really like my PSP.
5425  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Star Ocean: The Last Hope on: July 03, 2008, 08:01:47 PM
The Elite models don't seem to have any problems and I believe the new Jesper or Jasper or whatever chipset installed on newer 360s released this summer should fix things.  

Still, it's not like consoles haven't had problems in the past.  First generation PSones would overheat, first generation PS2's were very glitchy, a lot of people talked about first gen Dreamcasts and GameCube's dying on them.  And anyone who had an NES had to do all kinds of crazy and weirdo things to get it to work right.  

Sure some of the 360's problems and glitches may be more excessive than what's happened on other consoles in the past, but it's not like other consoles haven't had notable failure rates.

Cielo was a playable character in the Digital Devil Saga games.

I think a lot of folks are surprised (either pleasantly or unpleasantly) with how well the 360 is doing in multiple markets.  Not just gamers, but corporate/business types as well in the gaming industry.  

I mean, it was semi-headline news last week that Sony's posting a 3.3 billion dollar loss on the PS3 (and I'm sure they've bled more money since then), since they're selling it below manufacturing cost, it hasn't been selling as well as they'd like, and it's going to take something fierce for them to recoup that cost.
5428  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Persona 4 on: July 03, 2008, 04:22:12 PM
When it comes to Persona, Magami Ibunroku Persona (aka Revelations: Persona), Persona 2: Innocent Sin, and Persona 2: Eternal Punishment are all directly connected.  

Persona 3 is its own entity, though there are references to other MegaTen games such as the MMORPG being called Innocent Sin and that one soda being called Cielo Mist.

If you want to get crazy, then Tamaki (one of the mains in Shin Megami Tensei If...) makes cameos in MIP, P2:IS, and P2:EP and some students from that high school hang out in Sumaru City (they wear the uniforms that aren't Seventh or Kasu uniforms.)

Hey Darky-poo, how's Bloodlines running for you?  Fairly stable?  Last I heard the game was really buggy and since Troika's gone bye-bye, patches are scarce.  I wonder if any fans made patches.  I know Anachronox was buggy as hell and even crashed some with both official patches, but with a pair of fanmade patches combined to the official ones, the game's quite stable.  

I'm still playing Anachronox.  And for kicks, occasionally playing some Wild Arms on PSP and some Star Ocean 3.  Replaying SO3, I realize that I forgot how exciting the first few hours are in the game especially since the latter portions of the game (esp. the infamous plot twist) didn't leave a good impression.

I don't know... if the picture thread is any indication, we @ RPGFan make geeknerdiness look fierce.
