LOL.  The article is about facts regarding game design, not opinions.

I rest my case.

And lets leave it there, please, this whole discussion is becoming very tiresome...

Aww, I noticed no one here has played Ogre Battle 64, have they? I was just about to ask for some comparisons, but I should probably Finish Ogre Battle: MotBQ first, anyways.

I think this guy needs to watch this to see it in a new light.
I love Classic Game Room even if it seems like it gives nearly everything a good review.
I heard through my sister that she watched someone play Drakengard and supposedly it sucks.
Anyone else have a second opinion on it?

Personally, I like that CCR's reviews are mostly positive. It puts me in the perspective of someone who enjoys certain games despite their flaws, which is far more helpful to me than someone saying so-and-so game sucks. It's nice to hear what the problems are, but all I really need to know is how do I enjoy those games so that if I buy that game, I'll be able to enjoy it, too.

Minority Report - I really don't know what to say about it. It wasn't bad, yet I was itching to get out of my seat halfway through. Its attempts at humor were unnecessary, and I found the plot mostly confusing, and that rarely happens to me with movies. Yet I found it enjoyable, and the ending was nice. Also despite being confusing, I found it predictable towards the end, but that's a comfort by then.

Replayed some of Jak II and I must say: I have no idea why I had so much trouble navigating the map before. I didn't get lost once after completing two missions, and only kind of got lost when I attempted one of the horrible vehicle missions, which have only gotten worse since Jak & Daxter. Looks like it's 3 outta 3 after all.=)

Average Ones:  Final Fantasy Tactics,

im glad to know im not the only one who thinks so, i found it to be pretty lackluster and to have a relatively broken combat system.

My main beef was battles simply took way too long.  Mastery of classes therefore, took forever.  Hell, even blackmages took 3 full rounds for some spells to pull and by then everyone is out of the vicinity.

Have you ever played Tactics Ogre? Battles in Tactics Ogre are way longer than any battle in FFT. I thought FFT's battle were relatively short.

SNES Rom > Speed up Button. =)

haha, win. the length didnt bother me too much, i just found the difficulty to be a bit too high. to the point of causing me to exploit on of the flaws in the games system. but yea, that whole thing where spells took more than one turn to cast....so crap.

a lot of people dump on FFTA but its actually the game that made me a fan of the genre.

Shining Force my game that made me a fan, but FFTA is the game I always go back to whenever I need a good warm up.

Okay, so I found out that dungeons reset when you go back into them in Beyond Oasis. Too bad I forgot to save when did that, now I have to do it all over again, and I already completed this same dungeon twice, and it's a long one, too (still no where near Zelda long, though). Looks like I'll be tackling it again tomorrow...two dungeons is kind of my limit...

I beat Dragon Quest IX. I'm finally starting to slow down on this game a little. Just random quests and shit now. Still, I can't think of any other game I spent 80 hours on, save maybe FFVII (I leveled up to 99 on my first playthrough) or WoW, but that doesn't count.

Glad to hear you enjoyed it so much. Gotta love a game you really want to sink that kinda time into.

I started up Beyond Oasis yesterday, and I must say: I LOVE it! Really fun game, it is. Very fast-paced for a Zelda clone. I completed 3 Dungeons just last night, and I'll be doing so more tomorrow. Didn't play much today, not even SMB, but I did finally start up Beyond Good & Evil, which was also very good. I'll play some more of it once I'm done with Beyond Oasis.

Thanks for the replies.  I'll give it a shot and see how the first dozen episodes go.  Only thing that I foresee really pissing me off is a 13 year old main character.  We'll see how it goes.  Thanks.

The main character is disturbingly mature for his age, and a lot of what he's done so far either make sense, or would make sense if he was 30. And I think he even has a wife and kid, too, but I'll have to check up on that. "They're just friends", but that doesn't explain the kid...
1329  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky on: December 06, 2010, 01:30:53 PM
Fucken A!  Loved the early press when the game first came out in Japanland.

I agree about the old box art haha

Can't wait to play.  And sorry, Ive been outta the loop, but I thought they released another Legend of Heroes (a more recent title)

They released 3 games a ways back, but the developer is also responsible for the Ys series, which have been released recently.

Man, I need to play Tactics Ogre...

its not the graphics its the shitty antiquated gameplay thats the problem. ALL of the gba fire emblems are better than the DS ones.
Explain, please.

what is there to explain? the gba FE's have more classes and better looking animations theres various omissions. plus MY UNIT sucks ass if you only want to make a female unit.

Hence why this isn't Fire Emblem 11. Personally, I'd just adjust my expectations. So wat if it's worse than the GBA Fire Emblems thanks to some omissions, which are due to the fact that it's an old game? Does that stop it from being good or at least decent?
1331  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenoblade + The Last Story on: December 06, 2010, 01:16:04 PM
Xenoblade pretty much plays like every MMORPG out there. Why people are so excited about it ? I thought JRPG fans hate single player MMO.

I DID enjoy FFXII a lot actually, the bigger problem with 'single player MMO' is when you take some of the worst aspects (grinding for items to pass a quest) without some of the best (large, well developed world). At worst I don't see Xenoblade taking only the worst there, and I certainly don't see it being as much of a time sink. Then again it's not like I'm limiting my game interests to JRPGs here either.

Yeah, if they can come up with an interesting world, which all the videos I've seen seem to focus on, I can see Xenoblade being very enjoyable.
1332  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Will there be a Lunar 2 on PSP? on: December 06, 2010, 01:13:42 PM
I'm amazed at the hype, personally.  Like Dragon Quest, I find these titles to be too plain and based on too many archetypes to be interested in them.

The phrase, "cliched, but well done," is how I would describe Lunar: SSSC. Even though the characters are super-archtypal, they're very well done. Between the anime cut scenes and the voice acting, you really got to know them much more inimately than most other RPGs.

That and the humor sums up my reasons for enjoying Lunar: The Silver Star.

I'd also like to note that I played Lunar and FF for the first time two years ago, and I still enjoyed them.
1333  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Favorite and Least Favourite Tactical RPGs on: December 05, 2010, 05:57:56 PM
Advance Wars is one of the best console tactics games.  You missed out if you're calling it average.. putting it in the same category as grindea factory trash is just sad.  Also note that Advance Wars is not an SRPG.. neither are a bunch of other games people have listed in this thread, but I haven't felt like pointing them all out.

Front Mission 4 is good if you like party management/customization.. so if you claim to be a tactics fan you should have enjoyed it more.. although that depends on your level of skill.  I've found that skill plays a pretty big role in whether someone likes FM4.. that and whether they like customizing and min/maxing mech configurations.

Check out www.tbstactics.com if you're a tactics fan.

I love Advance Wars. I also enjoyed Front Mission 4, though I think I would've prefered Front Mission 3 and Front Mission 1.

As much as many may hate the Working Design's translations. The Sega cd and PlayStation Working Designs scripts made "Lunar the Silver Star" one of my favorite rpgs.

I loved the Translation, at least in the first game, even if the humor didn't always feel like it belonged. It lightened up a story that would've been too boring if it was actually trying to take itself seriously.

I haven't seen V Gundam, but if it's anything like Zeta Gundam then I can only give a mixed review. Sometimes the show is spot on, others it falls falt or is overly dramatic. Also, Zeta Gundam is fucking long. 50 episodes is a lot for a show that doesn't keep a consistent stride. I have five episodes to go before I'm done, but I can say the latter half was more enjoyable the former.

That sums up my opinion of Victory Gundam, but so far I think Zeta had a better overall excecution. It is getting better, though, and it hasn't plodded as much as Zeta tends to do. I think...
