Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology- The last 3 bosses are actually challenging after a pretty easy ride.  Final boss is cheap, though.
5567  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.

That happens to me sometimes on a bass forum I post at.  Usually clearing my private data (or temporary internet files on IE) does the trick.  EDIT:  Clear your cookies too.  That should help.
5569  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Sakura Taisen DS update, Jeanne D'Arc is the bad guy? on: December 05, 2007, 03:16:33 PM
Okay, enough is enough.  Sakura Taisen's an import favorite, a DS installment is cool, etc.  

No one's getting scooped.  There are tons of primary and news sources that say the same thing, we only use those and not fansites for news, so someone's getting their underwear in knots over nothing.  

Now everyone's getting hostile stupid.  

Topic locked, have a nice day.

Well, you can always switch your control from Senel to someone else.

Maybe I need to poke around more, but from what I can tell, you can't. At least I haven't figured out how to when I played, maybe it's so you stick with Senel in the main quest then stick with each of the characters in their respective after-game quests.

Really?  I haven't played Legendia, but other Tales games have allowed me to switch control to someone else and assign AI to the main.  So I assumed that Legendia allowed you to do the same.  I know in Radiant Mythology, if you press START while the battle menu is up, you can switch.

Well, you can always switch your control from Senel to someone else.  

Speaking of Tales and Senel, I'm still having fun with Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology.  
Senel recruited me for a quest in the Aelderwood and I took Tear and Luke with me.  After killing the first monster, I got a skit I wasn't expecting.  Tear was gushing over Senel's fighting prowess saying how he's so much more experienced than Luke and never leaves any openings.  Senel shrugs it off and Luke gets a little jealous that Tear's all impressed by Senel's fighting.  It was so cute and so funny.  It was also funny when Senel and Luke were fighting about who was taller and who could grow more.

If the game was more plot based and not a stripped down single-playing MMORPG with hundreds of repetitive fetch quest, this would've been one of my contenders for best handheld RPG of '07.  

Here's hoping Tales of Innocence delivers and makes it stateside.

...and some social links are just plain weird.  The Moon S-Link character was a weird one.
5573  Media / Single-Player RPGs / FFXII: Revenant Wings on: December 03, 2007, 11:10:39 AM
Hmm... maybe after FFX-2, gamers are iffy about true sequels in the FF franchise.  It doesn't help that Motomu Toriyama, who directed FFX-2, also directed Revenant Wings.  I liked X-2 personally, even more so than X in many ways, but I'm just an oddball like that.  Or maybe that handheld RPGs typically don't get the kind of fanfare that their full-sized console brethren do.  

I too thought more people would be rocking Revenant Wings.  I'm not because I'm not really into RTS games and I wasn't as into FF12 as many of you were, but let's not go there.

Still playing Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology.  I saved up enough Gald to get this great piece of armor for my character (her name's Ascarya).  During a dungeon run I got this nifty skull helmet too.  She looks so badassed now.  

I'm still in the Doplund chapter.  Ascarya's level is in the mid-30s.  I'm really digging this game.

I think it's that AI in a turn based engine seems odd because that's never really been done.  I'm cool with AI in action-based RPGs like Tales of Symphonia, especially since the Tales games have always programmed good AI for computer characters.  I never had to babysit them like I did in Star Ocean games.

Bern- those are IMO the only flaws in the game (along with one floor of Tartarus looking like a Lite Brite.)  But the good far outweighs the bad.  I spent a good 95+ hours on one playthrough.
5577  The Rest / General Discussions / This is the most disgusting thing you will ever hear of. on: December 01, 2007, 11:38:16 AM
As long as you and your sometimes vindictive self don't pull crap like this when you're a doctor, Ashy-poo...

This is completely disgusting, yet oddly hysterical as well.  I mean mistakes like this should only happen in Hollyweird and not the real world.  For the really depraved, how horrible would it have been if it was a girl who had to poop out of her hoo-hoo?

"Kenny, we replaced your heart with a baked potato and you will die in about 3 seconds."  Although the squirm/cringe/sick/vomit/eww worthy medical procedure on South Park was Wendy Testaburger getting implants.
5578  The Rest / General Discussions / Reviewer fired over Kane & Lynch review...? on: November 30, 2007, 08:16:03 PM
Didn't one of the articles say the guy was with Gamespot for 10 years?  Being fired over ONE bad review in that span of time raises a red flag or two with me.  Did the game's developers sink that much revenue into Gamespot for advertising and the review lost Gamespot so much revenue to can a 10 year employee?  

I think there's a lot more to the firing than the review.  Maybe the review was the straw that broke the camel's back.  

Who knows?  Either way, I feel badly for the fellow.  I mean, to get canned and have that one bad review be the event most connected to it sucks.  All anyone's going to remember is that review and not all the other good stuff he's done over his decade there.
5579  The Rest / General Discussions / So I just bought a DS... on: November 30, 2007, 04:08:29 PM
As far as graphic adventures go, Trace Memory, Hotel Dusk, and the Phoenix Wright games are the best.  There are the Touch Detective games as well, but those are not as good.  I liked them personally, but most people weren't keen on them.  

Trauma Center is a good DS game, but be warned that it can get pretty difficult pretty fast.  If you or your family are into more offbeat stuff, Cooking Mama's great fun.  Elite Beat Agents is fun too (it's a Parappa the Rapper type game), but many of the songs are not very good.  

Personally, I think the DS is a tad weak in the RPG department but strong in other genres.  I hope Tales of Innocence makes it to US shores.  That game looks awesome.

DR- +1 on Rocket Slime.  I loved that game.  It was so much fun.
5580  The Rest / General Discussions / Help Jimmy with his honor's thesis...please on: November 29, 2007, 08:28:38 AM
Alright Jimmy, I have a better idea of what you're looking for.  Anything in my lengthy post would still stand.  Not that I suggested anything beyond what you already had, save Grandia II, FFX-2, and possibly Diablo and Wild Arms 1.
