901  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Final Fantasy XII on: November 09, 2006, 06:01:18 AM
Starting over was a good thing for me.  Already I just finished the Nalbina Dungeon-Mimic caves area, and have Vaan with a Quick, and characters at level nine.  Ive managed my LP much better, and ive discovered that Montblanc gives you items for each rank, and money for bosses defeated.

I had no clue about that before, so now my enjoyment was like a 8/10, is now a 9/10.

I have to say, this is probably like in the top 3 favorite FF.  Its just got such a great world, pretty fun battle system, I love being able to PICK YOUR OWN WEAPON.  I mean, being able to choose from Crossbows, Katana, Ninja Sword, Rods, Staffs, Poles, Swords, Knightswords, on and on, its just great.  Kinda sucks though, since your not sure exactly what each does, in terms of benefits and such, but still, fun stuffs.

Sad thing is im only renting it, so on the 24th I gotta send it back..unless I get 39.99 then ill buy it...heh.

Well off I go!

Well I think those items get you especially good things from the bazaar, or at least thats my guess...but youd probably have to check a faq on that.  

Im gonna start over, made it to raithwall, but I wasted tons of LP figuring out what weapons were where....so I figure id start over, and better spend my points, and do more powerleveling, so I can have more cash in the beginning.
903  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Final Fantasy XII on: November 04, 2006, 03:45:16 PM
Personally, Vaan is probably one of the better male protagonists in the PS era series.  So much better than that moron Tidus.   And personally, I enjoy him as a character.  Im only about 5 hours or so into the game, so I havnt gotten far, but I can sure as hell say this game is probably the most enjoyable PS2 FF ive played.   The setting alone is vibrant and interesting, moreso than most of the previous FF games.  

The battle system takes a bit getting used to, but not much, gambit is interesting, especially for strategic buffs, and the option to not be forced into a specific weapon is a nice addition.

License system is a bit of a mixed bag, since you dont know exactly what skill reaches which, especially in the equipment stuff is a bit come and go, but not a big deal.

Personally, already I like this game more than 8, 9, 10, and 10-2, and thats just from the 5 hours i've played it.
904  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Phantasy Star Universe on: October 31, 2006, 03:27:00 PM
I dunno, maybe i just didnt like the configuration of the PC version, and maybe the Online is much more enjoyable than single player.  *shrugs*

I might try it out again someday, but I have other games on my mind.
905  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Phantasy Star Universe on: October 29, 2006, 05:38:10 PM
Well I played some of the single player for this...and...wow..im sorry, but I cant even see this being that much fun online for much more than a few days.  It just feel uninspired, and the combat is rather...dull.  I dunno..when I started it up, I was expecting something cool, since everyone here is all gaga over it, but frankly, I was sorely disappointed.  Thank goodness for rentals.
906  Media / Single-Player RPGs / FFXII-Anyone waiting for this title...worth the wait? on: October 27, 2006, 07:32:30 PM
Meh, Final Fantasy is one of those series you just dont wanna even discuss...cause youve got your fanboys and your haters, and htey are like vocal...aka WoW fanboys and Haters ><

Personally, I enjoyed the demo, the new gameplay is...well...new.  Course for some people, its gonna be a make or break, cause itll be to much of a "change" and they will whine and cry about it.  Frankly, so long as its intergrated smoothly, plays smoothly, and works out, I dont care.  It seemed fine in the demo I played, so I have little doubt the retail version will be any worse for the wear.

I have a gamefly account, so I have it as my next rent, so once im done with bully ill have it sent my way, and hopefully ill enjoy it.  Im sure there will be a few reviews out there that hate on it for the changes, and others that will give it high reviews JUST because its a FF game.  But meh, I usually only look at reviews for the really bad scores.  Otherwise I leave it to my own experience.
907  Media / Single-Player RPGs / PSU: RPGFan's Hang Out on: October 25, 2006, 03:49:40 PM
Man, with the way you guys almost worship this game, it makes me wanna get it, but I decided to go with buying the gamefly service.  I figure makes it easier to try the singleplayer games I like.

If I ever do get it though...and you guys still play, ill make sure to stop by, enjoy yourselves!
908  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Bully on: October 24, 2006, 01:55:20 PM
So, ive been reading the reviews for this game.  Sounds pretty fun.

The idea of playing a game set in highschool sounds kinda lame, till you realize you can beat the crap outta the assholes, and mess with teh teachers, all while doing all the stuff you couldnt do in real school.

Im actually really thinking about picking this up, but ill see what the RPGfan group has to say.  Anyone pick this up and play it yet?  Whats your opinion on it.  


(And if you say you didnt cause your waiting for FFXII and PSU..yeah ok I get it...lol)
909  Media / Single-Player RPGs / .Hack GU on: October 24, 2006, 02:38:38 AM
Yeah FFXII is on my list, but PSU just, I dunno, I didnt like the gameplay of PSO, and PSU doesnt look much different.  Just not very interested...lol.
910  Media / Single-Player RPGs / .Hack GU on: October 23, 2006, 08:51:58 PM
The first games were somewhat fun, though the whole 4 game deal was rediculous.  Anywho, this one seems to be getting alot better hype, and I figure ill make a topic for it since it releases tommorrow.

If anyone has had their hands on an import, give us your impressions of it, what you think etc, and if you pick it up, please do the same.

911  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Good to see Blizzard doesn't favor sides or anything... on: October 16, 2006, 11:37:35 AM
Plus its a level 23 polearm with stats...I dont think there are any such things in existance so far at that level (or at least not many)...so for polearm lovers...yay?

I dunno, I probably wont be playing, so not a big deal...but spear does own hammer any day...just cause spears usually look cool as hell...hammers...not so much.  And yes, ive played and seen some of the higher level ones..still dont look that great...though same could be said for most polearms...bahh im rambling.  

Still, ill be interested to see all the equipment added with the exp.  Especially in terms of weapon classes that dont have much, aka Polearms and Fist.
912  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / The Burning Crusade on: October 14, 2006, 02:18:09 PM
errr...Sept?  I think you got your month wrong bucko...

But yeah...I had quit wow...but who knows, if the exp looks fun enough..I may just have to start anew...and make it all the way to 60 for once...mwuahaha.
913  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Tales of the Abyss on: October 13, 2006, 09:25:36 AM
Grr so tough to decide...I loved tales of eternia, and tales of destiny....so this looks real good, specially since its only 39.99.  But the Devil Summoner looks pretty cool as well...and the time setting sounds so interesting...><

914  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. the Soulless Army on: October 12, 2006, 09:09:38 PM
Well my main questions, for those who have played, is....hows the storyline, and how difficult or not difficult is it?

Any other info would be enjoyed as well.  And yeah, I like dubs, but only good ones, the speaking does add a little more flair, if done right, but if the story is good, it doesnt really matter.

For me, story is a big point...and if Devil Summoner is just pretty much fighting, with a meager story...kinda like Nocturne, then I probably wouldnt be interested.
915  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. the Soulless Army on: October 12, 2006, 02:33:21 AM
Well let us all know how you like it.

Ill be deciding between either it, or TotA.  However the lack of voice acting does kinda stink for Devil Summoner...from the review I read.
