It looks good but I'm kinda reserved, charging for a game made in RPG maker doesn't feel right....

How is that any different from a local band charging for a demo CD they recorded using GarageBand on a MAC or something?  

I support grassroots indie efforts.  Instead of lining the pockets of corporate record labels (e.g.), I feel like I'm giving the money directly to the creators.  

And if not anything else, Aaron Walz and his team deserve my money for sound.  The music in the Aveyond games is awesome.  

And if you want a freebie, Ahriman's Prophecy is a freebie, along with all the downloadable "goodies" for the games.  The Aveyond 1 music pack's awesome.

I use a Gameshark and boot disc on my US Dreamcast to play Japanese imports.  It's always been reliable.  I would imagine you being able to do that  as well.  

EDIT: My semantics were unclear.

Been playing Aveyond 2 lately.  Really good game.
5464  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Dragon Quest Swords Release Date announced, Feb 26 on: December 12, 2007, 08:48:08 AM
When it comes to Dragon Quest, the spinoffs seem pretty hit or miss to me.  I'm not a fan of DQ:Monsters.  I'm not a fan of the Torneko games.  But DQ: Heroes Rocket Slime was really fun.  Another game like that would be sweet.  When will we get another Rocket Slime or DQ: Heroes game?  

Regarding DQ: Swords, it seems like a traditional RPG with a non-traditional control scheme.  Hopefully it'll work.

And Dincrest, wasn't Winter's Bane Owen's own band? I don't feel like researching to back that up so I'm probably wrong and come to think of it it was probably just a band that he happened to be in.

I wouldn't know.  If so, then I stand corrected.  Still, in my mind he got the boot from Priest when Halford came back and now got the boot from Iced Earth now that Barlow's back.  The guy has skill and talent, but some rotten luck.

Everything else aside, the one thing I'd want eventual confirmation on is whether or not SO4 will be on both PS3 and 360.  I'm guessing its likely given tri-Ace is creating Infinite Undiscovery for the 360.
5467  Media / The Soundroom / Care to guess who's back with Iced Earth? on: December 11, 2007, 08:10:54 PM
Jon Schaeffer's still a douchebag.  Ripper Owens got shafted again.  Guy needs to form his own band so he won't get kicked out when the old singer returns.  What's going to happen with Matt Barlow and Pyramaze now?  

But the whole cattiness isn't new in rock bands.  When Vince Neil was kicked out of Motley Crue and replaced with John Corabi, Nikki was not at all shy about badmouthing Vince and the sentiment was mutual.  Corabi was an excellent musician, but not right for the Crue.  So Vince was brought back in.  I have mad respect for Corabi, though.  After reading The Dirt, he impressed me with his professionalism and good attitude.

Regardless, yeah, Burnt Offerings= my favorite Iced Earth album.
5468  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Official (cause I said so) Mass Effect Thread...GO! on: December 11, 2007, 03:00:26 PM
Isn't Mass Effect supposed to be part 1 of a trilogy?  I read that in a few places.
5469  Media / Brush and Quill / The Filth: A New Round Robin for people to participate in. on: December 11, 2007, 11:14:23 AM
help but wonder.  "Zenar," I says to myself, "what are you thinking?"  I started running straight back home and started talking to myself about Eeyore all night.  

My housemates had had enough.  "Get over that crazy bitch already!" they'd tell me.  "She's rude, crude, violent, completely psychotic, looks like a goddamned donkey, treats you like crap... ugh, it's not like she can do something truly amazing like lay golden eggs or fly like Superman.  What the hell do you see in her?"  They'd get so frustrated with me.  It wasn't uncommon for them to grab my shirt collar and shake me violently.  I knew they cared about me and my well-being, but Eeyore had a spell on me.  

I'd heard it all before, so I just brushed my teeth and went to bed.  It was Saturday so I slept in.  It must've been 2pm when I woke up.  I was greeted by my housemates' teasing.  "Rise and shine, sleeping beauty."  "It's aliiiiiiiiive!"  "Must've been a rough night, eh doggie?"  

"Yeah, it kinda was," I replied.  "I went to one of 'Eeyore's' shows, and..."

"Uhh, who's Eeyore?"  

"Real funny, guys.  She's that chick I'm going with that you all can't stand.  Violent temper, looks like a donkey.  God, why am I even bothering?"

"Sorry dude, but I don't remember anyone like that.  Do you guys?"  

Everyone shook their heads.  

"Okay, joke's over.  I know you're all pretending to forget her so that I might see that life's better without her."  

"Dude, what joke?  We're not pretending anything.  You sure you're alright."

I could tell they weren't clowning around.  I immediately called Eeyore on my cel phone.  I was met with the voice of a gruff and grumpy man that sounded nothing like anyone either me or Eeyore knew.  The number was on speed dial.  I know I had it right.  

I took a walk.  I asked around the local haunts.  It seemed no one knew about Eeyore.  It's as if she never existed.  But I knew she existed.  She was real to me, and only yesterday she was real to everyone else.  Why was it that I was the only one who could remember her?  Was I the one going crazy?  Or was I the one completely sane and everyone else was going crazy?  

That night there was a hailstorm.  There has never been a hailstorm around these parts before.  It was some freakish hail too, hail the size of Cocoa Puffs.  This hailstorm made me feel...

Egad, you're right.  Aveyond 2 was released 12/6.  I've been concentrating on so much other stuff with real life and RPGfan that I completely missed this one.  That's sad considering how much I loved Aveyond and Ahriman's Prophecy.

EDIT: I'm a couple of hours into Aveyond 2 and it is good.  The visuals are prettier and the music is arguably better (Aveyond 2's battle theme is awesome.)
5471  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Seiken Densetsu 3... (thanks for dice for correct me) on: December 09, 2007, 10:20:19 AM
Henceforth, if anyone needs to air their verbal "dirty laundry" please do it with the private messenger.  

Back to Seiken Densetsu 3.
5472  Media / The Soundroom / Song of the Moment Part 7,894,673,589.3 on: December 08, 2007, 03:24:40 PM
Two songs.  I seem to be hearing "Highway Star" by Deep Purple everywhere lately and it's always stuck in my head.  

Another one is "Middle Boss" from Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology.  It's IMO the only good track on the OST and it has this great melody at the :27 second mark.  Sticks in my head like a barnacle.  So catchy.
5473  The Rest / General Discussions / Awesome/Stupid YouTube Video Thread on: December 07, 2007, 08:21:38 AM
Not YouTube, but an awesome vid.  This 10 year old girl Gabi Wilson belts out Boogie Oogie Oogie while playing some funky bass.  The slap solo during the last 21 seconds is sweet.  I think we have another Rhonda Smith in the works.  

5474  The Rest / General Discussions / Game Journal #9999 on: December 06, 2007, 08:45:33 PM
Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology- The last 3 bosses are actually challenging after a pretty easy ride.  Final boss is cheap, though.
5475  The Rest / General Discussions / Australia hates Christmas! on: December 06, 2007, 01:55:12 PM
I heard about that incident, or a similar one in Australia, a couple of weeks ago.  Why am I not surprised?  It's like activist groups here in the US trying to make Santa slim because a fat Santa encourages children to eat nothing but cookies & milk in this age of childhood obesity.  That's ridiculous.  Kids do NOT aspire to be Santa Claus.  No kid wants to be "just like" Santa.  Santa is not a figure kids imitate.  

I thought this news story below it was hysterical.  http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20071206/ap_on_fe_st/odd_house_fire_dog;_ylt=At7vl5gBYi1tf1awGX69eS4Z.3QA Man's best friend, my afterburner.  That's something I would expect a cat to do.
