5641  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.
5642  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...
5643  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Aveyond & Ahriman's Prophecy (independently developed RP on: December 10, 2007, 12:35:49 PM
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.)
5644  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.
5645  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.
5646  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.

Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology- The last 3 bosses are actually challenging after a pretty easy ride.  Final boss is cheap, though.
5648  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.
5649  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Log-in troubles on: December 06, 2007, 08:14:45 AM
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.
5650  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.
5653  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Persona 3 on: December 03, 2007, 01:33:15 PM
...and some social links are just plain weird.  The Moon S-Link character was a weird one.
5654  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.
5655  The Rest / General Discussions / Game Journal #9999 on: December 02, 2007, 12:38:57 AM
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.
