Darkrider still hasn't told us how his turkey-cooking adventure went.  I'm really curious to know how it all turned out.  Or at least whether he used Dag's brown bag idea.

...only in the Neal household would the Thanksgiving bird be tandoori chicken.

...he was smited by Ultimecia still wearing a Spongebob costume.  Just then, a purple-ish object came twirling down from the sky.  It was a familiar Warwick Fortress MasterMan bass!  That could only mean one thing.  Dincrest had been brought back to life.  

Only Dincrest was a bit, ummm, different than usual.  Instead of his usual clothes, he was now wearing...

Spongebob Squarepants, who was really Ultimecia in disguise.  Ultimecia then noticed...

Heh, but what if it was a DragonForce RPG, hmm?  

But hmmm... who to play as.  I'll probably play as Marko Paasikoski, the bassist.  He too is a user and lover of Warwick.  The site says that all manner of weapons will be used... but I'd want to use their instruments.  I mean, Henrik with a keytar of doom.  Or Jani with his Ibanez "axe."

http://www.rpgfan.com/reviews/tracememory/index.html Here's my review of Trace Memory.  I'm pretty much the graphic adventure/digital novel/dating sim/love adventure guy on the staff.  I have a review of Touch Detective too.  It's nice to see that 3 of us (me, Clueless, Britton) actually liked Touch Detective, which I feel got unfairly slammed by the critics.  Methinks they don't play enough adventures.  http://www.rpgfan.com/reviews/touchdetective/index.html

I believe Cing, who developed Trace Memory, is also behind Hotel Dusk.  And given how much I loved Trace Memory (I consider it a DS "must have") I hope Cing doesn't let me down with Hotel Dusk.

Toilet, with Limp Bizkit swimming in it!!!

Just then...

I find the prospect of Drakrider cooking a turkey very amusing.  

Go all American, dude!  Take a turducken (deboned chicken stuffed inside a deboned duck stuffed inside a deboned turkey), coat that thing in flour, spices & lard, and deep fry it in coconut oil.  Use a pressure cooker/fryer like Colonel Sanders did!  :P

(If the thought of that didn't give you people a heart attack, then I pity you.  But still, only in America would someone create a turducken... with sausage stuffing.)  

As for me, I love Thanksgiving.  Fun with family, getting happy off of tryptophan and beer, and sharing funny stories about how wacky we all are.  (I'm part of a very large and very dysfunctional Indian family, but we're generally a happy bunch, especially when we're soused on comfort food and alcohol.... and don't talk about sensitive topics.)  

I'm looking forward to Thanksgiving, because life has been go go go for me lately and the break will be nice.  Last Thanksgiving, our neighbors had the garage door open and the guys were putting a turkey in a huge deep fryer and acting all "manly" while the wives were all like "oh, my fucking god.  Will our husbands EVER grow up?"  My family lives in a very ethnically diverse neighborhood, so Thanksgivings are always amusing.  I'm still waiting for the day someone decides to emulate that Cosby Show episode when Cliff Huxtable decides to break out the grill and make BBQ ribs in the middle of November.  

Pizza on speed dial when the turkey doesn't work out.

From what I understand, DR, the game is supposedly based around stories and characters in Sonata Arctica lyrics, so I'm sure the FullMoon werewolf will be in there.  Hopefully the boy who wanted to be a real puppet will make an appearance too.
5829  Media / The Soundroom / Sonata Arctica... video game (RPG to boot) on: November 20, 2006, 06:11:51 PM
This would probably fit better in Computer RPGs than music, but more Sonata Arctica fans would probably look in this forum.  

It seems Sonata Arctica will be starring in a PC action-RPG and doing a lot of the music for it.  It's called Winterheart's Guild.

http://www.winterheartsguild.com/wg/index.htm

It's no secret that I love Sonata Arctica and hopefully the game won't suck too horribly.  

It' s probably old news, but whatever.

"If Neil Diamond were to form a metal band, it would be Sonata Arctica"- one of my friends.

Man, I hope this game makes it stateside.  I'm digging the traditional art style.  

I just preordered Hotel Dusk: Room 215 and I can't wait for that one.
5831  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Worst RPG you've ever played. on: November 20, 2006, 10:57:49 AM
My main beef with Legend of Dragoon (besides some horribly cheap bosses like Grand Jewel and issues with money/items/EXP) was that the plot was pretty much a by-the-numbers RPG plot until disk 3 with the whole thing
Code:
about Rose and the Dragon Campaign of 11,000 years ago.
I thought *that* was more interesting than the whole Dart story.  

So basically, I chalk Legend of Dragoon as a classic case of the RPG world's mythos/backstory being more interesting than the one you're currently playing through.  This holds for Tales of Destiny as well.  I had fun with the game and it had some interesting aspects in the plot (I liked how religion was handled), but the whole backstory about the Aether Wars and how the Swordians came to be was more interesting than Stahn's quest and I wished the game could have been about that instead.  

EDIT: Oh snap: My old reader review of Bokosuka Wars http://www.rpgfan.com/reviews/bokosuka/Bokosuka.html reminded of another RPG that was horrible beyond belief.  Bad music, bad graphics, bad gameplay, bad story, bad everything:  Super Hydlide for Genesis.  That game is even WORSE than Secret of the Stars, and we all know how much disdain I have for that game.    

So, yeah, 3 worst RPGs of all time, and this is me at my most objective:
-Super Hydlide
-Tecmo: Secret of the Stars
-Bokosuka Wars

One of my friends was curious about Sonata Arctica because he always saw someone in his class with a Sonata Arctica shirt, so I sent him some links to check out.  

His quote: "If Neil Diamond had a metal band, they would be Sonata Arctica."  

Hence my song of the moment is, well, anything by Sonata Arctica.  I love that band (probably my favorite power metal band), but my friend's quote is spot on.

Still, the point is that there are other companies doing what Working Designs did, doing it as good or better, and doing it in a more timely manner than WD ever did.
5834  Media / Single-Player RPGs / The Lunar series/Working Designs. on: November 19, 2006, 09:27:59 PM
I don't know... Atlus and NIS America aren't exactly big and they're able to bring more niche titles to the US and with excellent quality translations to boot... and much faster than WD ever could.

There was a time when WD was the only game in town for good translations, but they've been hopelessly outclassed for years.
5835  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Worst RPG you've ever played. on: November 19, 2006, 07:49:35 PM
I'll be honest, I wasn't keen on Lunar 1 and 2 either, but I can see why they are held in high esteem as they are.  Good games.  

I still stand by my assessment that Bokosuka Wars and Tecmo: Secret of the Stars are the worst ever.  There is not a single redeeming quality about either of those games.  

I urge anyone to even try playing Secret of the Stars and that will forever change your mind on the badness of some of the games listed in this thread.
