1261  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Western RPG With Engaging Storyline? on: December 16, 2010, 06:19:14 PM
I'm looking to see if anyone can name some Western RPGs with engaging storylines. I've not played that many in the genre, and out of those, Mass Effect, Planescape: Torment, and arguably Fallout 3 were the only ones I came across that had a story that held my attention and made me want to know more about it. I won't list the others, because if they're listed, that would give me a proper frame of reference, and perhaps entice me to give those games a second chance, or at least adjust my expectations.

List:

Anachronox(PC)
Dues Ex(PC)
Septerra Core(PC)
Summoner(PS2)

and Strange Journey is from 2009

You are....right. I'm really confused now.=P

Released in '09 in JP, '10 in NA, right?

That's what I thought but the cart says '09...Oh wait, you're right March 23rd 2010, I got it for my birthday this year just days after. Okay, so that's my #1.

Wait, I forgot what came out this year.

My list:

1) SMT: Strange Journey
2) FF13 (only FF I played from start to...well, I made my brother finish it for me =P)
3) Sands of Destruction (cutesy and worth the $10 I paid for it)
4) Hexyz Force (only a few hours in, though)
5) Pokemon HeartGold (I played it for 5 minutes and was already bored to tears)

I'll tell ya around Xmas. I seriously haven't played anything that came out this year...

wait! I played a bit of Hexyz Force, so I guess that'll have to do.=P

I'd like to decide how good it is on my own, so I'll still be getting it.
Statements like this are silly.
So do you buy every game that your interested in just to see if it's good? That would be ridiculous. At some point, reviews and general comments by others who have played the game HAVE to come into play.
If a game I am interested in is getting universally awful or mediocre reviews , I'm going to be bummed, but I'll move on. No way am I buying it just to decide on my own.
Now, if renting is a possibility, then that would make sense.


Now now, I just meant in that one instance. I'll be getting it regardless of how good The After Years is because It's Final Fantasy 4 and it would take something radical like ugly 3D graphics or a dumbed down difficulty to scare me away.:P Of course, once I'm done with FF4 I'll find out if TAY is really any good.

In retrospect, I probably should've mentioned some of that before, huh.^_^;

Kind of an old article, but yea, they like their "-ia"'s. Remember Symphonia, Vesperia, and Phantasia?

I did follow the link in your signature a while ago, Mickeymac92.  But like you mentioned they have closed registration.  I've just customised my spreadsheet with the same ideas from Backloggery...

Neat. Oh, they might reopen the registration if the revamp(which should be done soonish) reduces the server problems they've been having, in case anyone was interested.

Anywho, I think I've done what the OP was kinda talking about durring last Summer: I started treating games that weren't RPGs like they were RPGs, making it harder for me to enjoy those Non-RPGs. For instance, I started treating Death as a major consequence in action games, when death is more or less to be expected, and dying on a level is a minor setback compared to losing hours of play in an RPG.

I've tried doing that 3 times before, but I could never stick with it. I'm glad it worked for you, though. I'm just too impulsive - I play whatever I'm in the mood to play.

It was hard at first, but it eventually works out.  I have a backlog of great games to play right now, but I'm currently playing great games so I'm happy knowing that I'll finish my current great games and move on to my backlog of great games instead of starting them all at once and fucking it all up.

I'm a very organised person - sometimes people mock me for it.  For example, I have a spreadsheet of the games I own which is arranged into genre, format and whether they have been completed or not.  I even arrange my games on shelves and have the ones I haven't finished sticking out slightly so at a glance I can see what going on.  All alphabetical, naturally.

Oh boy...

I have something like that, too, on the Backloggery. Too bad they closed registration, it's a great way to keep your games organized.

Anyways, I'll give it another shot and see if I can stick to it, especially after Xmas.

Was that trailer super-choppy for anyone else?  Didn't seem to be a CPU-usage issue, either.  More like there wasn't enough bandwidth but they weren't buffering it.

It was ultra bad for me, a few Frames per seconds, actually. Luckily that Youtube Trailer worked out fine.

I tend to play only 1 RPG at a time these days.

In the past I would have 2 or 3 on the go at once and I found that I would never finish them half the time, so I decided to focus only on 1 so that I could enjoy it more.  Sure, it takes me longer to play a game, but at least I'm more likely to finish it.

I sometimes break this rule, since I do a lot of travelling for work, so for example, now I'm playing Dragon Age: Origins at home on console and Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light on handheld.

Alongside RPGs I will limit myself to 1 other game for each of the formats - again, so I get round to actually finishing them.

Since following this rule, my gaming has been a lot better - I'm finishing more games and enjoying more games.

I've tried doing that 3 times before, but I could never stick with it. I'm glad it worked for you, though. I'm just too impulsive - I play whatever I'm in the mood to play.

Played some Got my butt kicked in Melty Blood Act Cadenza. That boss is mad cheap, but otherwise it was a nice way to pass the time before bed.
1274  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The 2011 Thread on: December 15, 2010, 09:39:08 AM

Except their list consisted mostly of Xbox 360 and PS3 games that I don't care about, whereas you had a very diverse, rip-offable list.=P
1275  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: were you a good RPGfan this year? Xmas wishlist. on: December 14, 2010, 08:37:39 PM
Stuff I asked for:

1 $20 PSN Card
Final Fantasy: 4 Heroes of Light
The Dark Spire
Etrian Odyssey III: The Drowned City
Sonic Colors (DS)

I was a very good boy so I hope I get them all.=3
