Even though the DS and PSP are the least expensive gaming platforms one can buy


You can get a new PS2 for a little cheaper and its the king of rpgs.


I was referring more to current-gen systems, but fair enough.

Niche fandoms have their own set of frustrations.  Is it me, or do many fans of something obscure and niche come off as really possessive over that niche?  Has it ever sometimes made you want to grab them by the shirt collars and say "get over yourselves!"

Oh yeah, I do remember you mentioning it to me in that old Aveyond thread.  Game's looking good and you know me, I'm all about the indie RPG scene (I'm totally looking forward to Black Sigil on DS.  I hope that game's good and if it is, that it'll open doors for independent developers to create DS software.)

...but some people simply don't have $300 to drop on two handhelds and have money left over for games.  So they buy one and a game or two.  Even though the DS and PSP are the least expensive gaming platforms one can buy, we don't know if a person has a financial situation where they can only buy one.  

But if money is an issue, a DS is cheaper than a PSP and DS games are cheaper than PSP games.

If you enjoy strategy RPGs, PSP hands down.  Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness, FFT: War of the Lions, Aedis Eclipse, Jeanne D'Arc, and Wild Arms XF are the good ones that come to mind.  

The PSP also has the Star Ocean remakes being localized for it, so that's the system to play if you're dying for Star Ocean 1.  

The DS I think only now is starting to hit its RPG stride.  The World Ends With You was fantastic.  In terms of future RPGs, there's Black Sigil, that Bioware Sonic RPG, NISA's A Witch's Tale, The Dragon Quest remakes to name a few.  

The DS is a far more durable handheld, but the PSP has a larger screen and can be hooked up to a TV.  Both I think are solid systems for RPGs.  But the DS is less expensive and I believe in every gaming market (Japan, US, Europe) it's the most popular platform, so it has a very good future.

Both systems have their fair share of crap, though.  For example, do not be fooled by the name Cozy Okada on Monster Kingdom: Jewel Summoner.  That game is complete shit.

Speaking of Wendee Lee, I just got finished watching vol. 2 of Lucky Star.  I heart Konata and Yui.  Kagami's probably my favorite character, though.  

So which end of a chocolate cornet is the head?

Why am I reminded of Cartman's mom in South Park?

I think perhaps the concepts of childISH vs childLIKE would be pertinent to this discussion.

And here's the scary part: even at my age, the SQUEEEE factor's important to me.  Being a reviewer, I'm somewhat jaded on RPGs so I keep playing them to find that next RPG that will make me go "SQUEEEEEEEEE!"  

Chrono Trigger makes me go SQUEEEEE every time I play it.  So does Persona 3.  Anachronox has a high SQUEEEEE factor for me too.

I also have a soft spot for RPGs that are terrible because sometimes it's fun to rip a game apart in a review.  See Monster Kingdom: Jewel Summoner or Jake Hunter: Detective Chronicles.

Lossie, sweetie, baby, honey, I am SURE someone in Japan made a hentai game featuring catgirls with dicks.  Probably threw some S&M furries, multi-breasted bunny girls, and a donkey girl with a big ass in it for good measure.  

I don't think Brave Soul (an H-RPG) has a dickgirl in it, but I would thing some hentai game developer created an RPG with dickgirls.  

Hentai games are so numerous in Japan it's not even funny.  Sure English sites like Peach Princess or MangaGamer may appear to have a lot of translated (and uncensored) hentai games, but that's probably just skimming the surface of what's available in Japan.  

So the moral of the story is that if you're playing average ordinary everyday RPGs purely for the dickgirls, perhaps you need to branch out to a different red-light district for more explicit dickgirl action.  It's in much the same way that if you're purely in RPGs for story, perhaps a book should be read (although books don't have great gameplay.)  Or if you're purely in RPGs for gameplay, fighting games have better combat (although fighting games don't have great stories.)  

Playing RPGs like Thousand Arms and love adventures like Hourglass of Summer appeal to the hyperactive 13 year-old fanboy in all of us who goes "SQUEEEEEEEE!" at the thought of dating anime girls.  H-games appeal to the 18 year-old fanboy in all of us who goes "SQUEEEEEEEE!" at the thought of fucking anime girls.  So if I didn't have an inner child who went "SQUEEEEEE!" at the kinds of stupidly absurd things that gaming brings us, I R wouldn't be RPGFan riter.  Gaming's like comics or something like that.  Anything's possible and only limited by the imagination.  If Lossie-poo can imagine catgirls with dicks, it can potentially be in an AO Wii game with motion sensing controls.

Tsk tsk tsk Darky-poo.  Tsk tsk tsk.  I am ashamed at you!  Apalled!  Disgusted even!  You have really let me down.  

How could you even think about using mere plebian RPGs for your dickgirl lust?!?!?!?!  Perhaps I need to grab you, Lossie-poo, and his dad Nad (shall I call him Naddy-poo or Naddy-pie?) by the balls and drag you all on a field trip to a land of milk and honey called hentai games.  You want more dickgirls than you can shake a stick at?  You got it.  Of course, if you want other kinds of perversions (say cat-girls, dog-girls, bunny-girls) they're there too.  

Bah, RPGs being the best source for dickgirls, my ass.  Hentai gaming's where it's at for that kind of stuff.

If you run, it only makes you look guilty.  In a similar vein, Olsen demanding immunity only makes her appear defensive and suspicious.
5458  The Rest / General Discussions / The child protagonist on: August 06, 2008, 09:56:44 AM
Many of us are saying we like it when a child hero grows up and develops throughout the course of the story.  But are there people out there who don't really want that?  Is the fact that wide audiences don't want to see child protagonists grow up why many comic strip characters never age?  And when child protagonists do age, do these people get put off?  I'm sure there are people who adored Harry Potter in the early books when he was a wide-eyed, fresh faced, innocent child and got put off by him when he became a teenager, complete with the backsass, know-it-all atittude, and fly-off-the-handle disillusioned rage common in teenagers.
5459  The Rest / General Discussions / The influence of the fanbase on things you like on: August 06, 2008, 09:11:11 AM
One thing I've seen some folks touch upon is popularity.  I'm sure all of us had a band or something we really liked and kept saying, "these guys are awesome, they should be huge" and then the second they get some wider popularity and exposure, said band's not so cool any more and the "true" fans who "liked them before they were big" abandon them.  

Ain't we fickle hypocrites?  We want our favorite X to get big but get upset when it does.  I'm sure many of us older RPGers would marvel at 16-bit RPGs lamenting that a wider audience doesn't dig them, yet when mainstream gamers snatch up FF7 in droves, many older fans would go "bah, they're not worthy/tr00 RPG fans.  Back when we were playing FF they were playing f'n Mario."  

Amazing how big an influence on our perceptions of stuff the fanbase is.

Inherit the Wind is a movie that should be required viewing by all, especially the state of Kansas.  It's totally relevant today.

I also recently caught The NeverEnding Story on TV.  Love that movie (still looks beautiful even today) and the book is quite good.  I read the book a while back, but for the life of me I can't understand or recall why in the movieAtreyu was told that he couldn't take any weapons on his quest.  That seems a bit silly.  Perhaps there was something in the book I just can't remember.
