5461  The Rest / General Discussions / George Carlin RIP on: June 23, 2008, 08:14:21 AM
'Tis a sad day indeed.  George Carlin was easily my favorite stand-up comedian of all time.  I used to joke around to my friends that George Carlin should be president.  Hell, I still think he should be president.

Perhaps the deaths of Gary Gygax and George Carlin are a message that it's time for me to stop playing games and get serious.  :P

All kidding aside, Carlin was one in a million.  I don't think there'll be another comic quite like him.

Quote from: "Serene Prophet"
I suppose if I wanted anything, I really want to see what companies have coming for PC RPGs.  And NOT MMOs.  Especially if you find something offbeat like The Witcher.

+1 on wanting more on PC RPGs that aren't MMOs.  I definitely want information on, say, Theseis for PC and 360.  And for Square Enix, if there's any word about bringing those PSP Star Ocean remakes to the US.  

And if there are any independent developers there, I'd like to know what they have cooking as far as RPGs go.

I forgot if I posted this already.  Whatever.  It f'n brutalizes.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QOb6JSQd-Qw

It's studio footage of Cannibal Corpse, just the guitar, bass, and drums doing Frantic Disembowelment.

Although it was a PSP game, I felt that Wild Arms XF was a very challenging strategy RPG that actually *gasp* required strategy.  I'm easily the only critic who liked it because the other critics failed to figure out how to play it and just whined like babies because it wasn't like FFT.  

I notice someone mentioned Romancing SaGa.  Yeah, that game was definitely challenging.  That and any Megami Tensei title would be your best bets for games that are challenging/harder than your average RPG but not cheap.  Odin Sphere was challenging too, but it's an action-RPG and often got unbalanced.

Like me, Angelo's old enough to know better, but still too young to care.  And I laughed back in the day when he renamed Griever to "YourAss" just to have Ultimecia say "I will now junction myself unto YourAss."

Well, the haters can go soapbox all they want.  The rest of us will just enjoy the video games we like.

If I ever form a new band, we simply have to cover "I Wrote This" by Patrick (from Spongebob) because the song is freaking awesome.

Twinkle, Twinkle, Patrick Star,
I made myself a sandwich.
My mommy named it Fred,
It tastes like beans and bacon,
And smells like it's been dead.

Writing stuff is hard so I use a pointy pencil
Pointy, Pointy, Pointy, Pointy, Pointy, Point.
P.U., what's that horrible smell?
Drum solo!

(Drum Solo)

I have a head,
It ends in a point
Pointy, Pointy, Pointy, Pointy, Pointy, Point.
This song is over,
except for this line,
You win this round,

The most disturbing thing in the article I read was that one of the baby daddies was a 24 year old homeless guy.  

Words fail me.

I beat Jake Hunter today.  My thoughts are in the reader reviews forum.  In short, the game was a disappointment.  Visual novel fans should skip it and spend their $20 on Fatal Hearts instead.  

I'll be getting back to Anachronox tomorrow.  Fantastic game.  I was thinking of doing a reader review of it when I beat it, but it'd be pointless since I agree 100% with Lothodrus' editor review and I wouldn't be adding anything new.
5470  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Jake Hunter Detective Chronicles on: June 21, 2008, 12:21:57 AM
Well, I have a review of it in the reader reviews forum.  

If you want to burn $20 on a visual novel, I'd say skip Jake Hunter and get Fatal Hearts for PC instead.  I really wanted to like Jake Hunter, but the game really isn't very good.

And Bill, he did drink.  He orders Camus cognac at the bar in the first case, and in the beginning of the third case he has a massive hangover after drinking 7 glasses of Camus the night before.
5471  Media / Single-Player RPGs / FFv13 put on hold... on: June 20, 2008, 09:02:59 AM
Sony must've written up some very specific terms in its contract to Square Enix for the Final Fantasy IPs.  I doubt that FF13 will hit the 360 because of those contract terms (which I obviously don't know since I was never in the Sony office when the terms were drawn up.)

That's just creepy... and this coming from Mr. love adventure fan over here.

Great finds!

On a semi-related note, I see that Mazes of Fate is being ported to the DS & will be released very soon (June 24th).  Anyone have any thoughts on this game?  I never picked up the GBA version, but was always curious as to how it turned out.

I never played Mazes of Fate on GBA, but I believe someone here on the boards did and his impression was that the game had beautiful artwork and was a solid dungeon crawl, but there was a lot of slowdown.
5474  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Upcoming DS RPGs: Witch's Tale & Black Sigil on: June 19, 2008, 09:08:33 PM
I was browsing this crazy intarwebnet thingie looking at upcoming RPG releases, and a couple of upcoming DS releases caught my attention because, well, there's almost nothing about them yet they'll be on US DS systems this year.  

One is A Witch's Tale, an action-RPG by Hitmaker that NISA is localizing.  It's reportedly coming out in October, but details on it are almost nil.  Still, the artwork is cool; I like the pseudo-Van Gogh thing going on.  



Another one is Black Sigil, being published by Graffiti Entertainment who also published that GBA dungeon crawler Mazes of Fate.  Black Sigil's being independently developed by Studio Archcraft based out of Quebec.

http://www.graffitientertainment.com/index.php/games/black-sigil (there's a 4.5 minute trailer on the site and a whole slew of screenshots.)  

So I just thought I'd put mention of these titles out there since many of you here at RPGFan like stuff that's under the radar/outside the mainstream.  It's pretty cool to see stuff like this on the DS, especially indie stuff like Black Sigil.

I haven't seen anything about A Witch's Tale on any retail sites, but I see that Black Sigil's available for preorder at Amazon.

Looks like your basic turn-based system.  Worked for me in Phantasy Star and works for me now.  

And, yes, I too am a little puzzled about the mariachi scarecrow.
