Yeah for me, im done with MMO's.  Nothing really strikes a fancy, not even Conan.

Maybe Warhammer...if its not a WoW clone...though Warcraft is technically a clone of Warhammer...*head hurts*

Im gonna stick to buying SP games, since theres a crapload I havnt gotten yet, and I need to play...not to mention ones that are coming out soon.

I agree the Ein system is fairly meh in this one.  I would rather have had a small cast of developed characters, than the few you get, plus a bunch of "no name" Eins.

Anywho, im about..12-13 hours into it...at Crell Montrfriage (sp?)  So far ive been doing ok, probably not power leveling like I should be...but meh.   I did get lucky and got a item that gave 300,000 exp, which I gave to alicia, so she was 17 when everyone else was 7 and 6.

And FYI

Code:
The Ein you get from each item is random, and picked from a few different ones...adds some replay I suppose


I did find it lame that all the sorcs were males, all the light fighters females, all the heavy fighters males, and all the archers females, in terms of Ein...kinda makes it a lil boring...well at least thats what its been for me so far.

Havnt really done much with the "crafting" system, ya know, gathering monster parts and stuff.  Just been using what I can buy, or what ive found.  

And yeah...the Sealstones are cool...though some of the effects arnt really understandable..at least to me.  Like (Turns to Ice) or whatever, or (Turns to Fire)  what the hell does that mean?  lol.  Ill figure it out though...maybe im just being blind.

Anywho great game, and gorgeous.  Glad I picked it up.  I loved the first one, and this one is just as fun imo, though the character selection so far has been...not as varied as in the 1st.

Oh, and I have seen nothing about breakable items yet in my 12 hours of play, so...yep.

Well, its not out quite yet, gotta wait till the end of october, since they pushed it out to fix some bugs *proof that LA made them rush KOTOR2*

Anywho, I love the first game, still have it and play it regularly, both online, and the various premiums.  Plan on getting the Wyvern Crown of Cormyr soon.  Horses..hurray!

Ive always been a DnD nut, but I find the PnP game to be somewhat of a pain, since my group only played like once a week, and I wanted more...plus pnp can get a bit..boring.  So this is like cake served with sex served with ice cream for me :P

Course, itll be a bit before any good RP worlds are up and running, but im excited anywho.

Anyone here preordering?  I plan to so I can get my hands on the Toolset, and mess around with it.  I never touched the original games, but I figure this time I might give it a shot, so I can help out a RP world I play in on NWN, Myth Drannor, build up their 2 server.

Ok, well im done rambling, anyone wanting to post thoughts, complaints, whatever about this, here is your thread, enjoy!.
919  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Cross-Realm PvP on: August 28, 2006, 01:13:13 AM
From what ive heard with Cross BG 6, times have been as little as 1 minute.   Seems to be running very, very smoothly.
920  The Rest / General Discussions / GameSpot speaks with 4 analysts on PS3. on: August 23, 2006, 02:01:36 AM
Amen Ryos, Amen.

I dont care what the price is.  I care what there is to play on it, plain and simple.  If all the good RPGs come out for PS3, ill just save up and buy it.  If not, then ill pick whichever does.  Of course, I dont singularly play RPGs, but they are the main factor of my counsel purchase.
921  The Rest / The Bazaar / No Longer Needed on: August 22, 2006, 10:38:29 PM
Alright folks, its back up again, for a resonable price..so yep.  Just look above to the edit, and follow the little green link.

923  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Final Fantasy III DS gameplay video! on: July 15, 2006, 03:05:48 PM
I think it looks perfectly fine.  Im ok with the retroness of the battle system.  And I find the graphics to be decently done.  I mean sure, your not gonna get PSP quality 3D, but the DS never will I think.  Frankly, I think this one will do fine as a 3D game, cause it looks like SE is doing a fine job.  I guess im not that much of a stickler for PS1 era 3D graphics, so long as they do it well.

Hopefully this will be an enjoyable title, DS FTW!!!
924  Media / Single-Player RPGs / This Fall/Winter is gonna suck....but is also awesome. on: July 14, 2006, 10:39:09 AM

925  Media / Single-Player RPGs / This Fall/Winter is gonna suck....but is also awesome. on: July 12, 2006, 11:04:49 PM
Well I was looking through gamestops PS2 RPG section, and Holy Crap....I was hoping maybe to buy a new system this year...but I guess not...granted, not all those release dates are set in stone, but I wouldnt doubt that a majority will be out by then...

Rogue Galaxy
Marvel Universe
FFXII
.Hack GU
Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2
Xenosaga III
Valkyrie Profile 2

So yeah...I dunno exactly what the point of htis post is...cept to...inform folks of the wave of stuff coming.  I guess....the point of the post is to see who else will be ending up uber poor...lol
926  The Rest / General Discussions / North Korea tests long range missle, five short range. on: July 11, 2006, 04:18:41 PM
Well North Korea anywho, I think South Korea is a little less...Kim Jong Il or however you say that little munchkins name.  Yeah, I how people are worried.  Like it was said above, theres a difference between a government testing missles, and a crazy lunatic dictator doing it.

And I agree for the most part about the US getting invoved only when it benefits or endagers them...but, isnt that a countries peragotive?  Protecting itself?  I mean...most other countries would do the same I think.  Its nice to think everyone only thinks about helping others (which the US still does even if it has ulterior motives) but there the survival instict, and greed, that still keep people thinking first and foremost about themselves.

Anywho...I dunno if a preemptive strike is necessary yet...but I guess all we can do is wait and see, and hope it doesnt turn out for the worst.
927  The Rest / General Discussions / LocoRoco to include Racist Elements? on: July 07, 2006, 09:25:59 PM
Well I posted the Sony story on another site, and well, im gonna post what I posted regarding it here, rather long, and some of you may disagree, but I dunno, I feel I made some good points.  I think what we all need to keep in mind though is Society is never gonna get over racism, prejudice, or whatever for quite some time.  It may shift from time to time, but humanity is just not able to move past these kind of ideals at the current, and probably future time.  Sad, but true.


I suppose it can really be said that its in the eyes of the beholder on this one. If anything, I see it as merely a fun little challenge, the black person (black PSP) being challenged by the white person (white psp). I dont see it as the white person whooping the black person, or looking at her as though shes lesser. I see it as..say a fight between a black soldier and a white soldier.

You dont go on saying that..."ZOMG, KILL BILL IS RACIST CAUSE A WHITE WOMAN KILLS ASIAN WOMEN!! ZOMG!!" To me, I sort of see the same thing going on here. There is no "blatant" racism going on, and frankly, the only people who would see racism are those who feel that racism should still be considered as a basis for any clash between white and black, or whatever.

Personally, I get a small feeling that this is in some way just another crack at the gaming industry. I wonder if, for instance, a car manufacturer did something like this. Would the reaction be the same? Would anyone even care?

Another interesting aspect, is that American organizations are outcrying this...when the billboard is IN ANOTHER COUNTRY, and the company is FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY. Who are we to involve ourselves in something like this. Especially the NAACP, when they said,

"The days of blacks being portrayed in minstrel shows are long gone, and with good reason," Callender said. "The minstrel show was an awful chapter in history and this ad smacks of that age and time. It is even further unacceptable that some corporations still think it is ok to use racially charged media images. The latest Sony ad conjures up bad memories of when stereotypical and offensive images of people of color were accepted means of selling a product. Sony should immediately apologize and discontinue these archaic advertising tactics."

Wow, so quick to say its racially charged eh? How bout instead of damning every use of different skin colors, you might...I dunno, think of it as just a normal part of life? You should try and hide the fact that black people are "black" and that white people are white. Its like saying you shouldnt contrast between green grass and brown dirt. In my opinion, your just propagating racial stereotypes by insinuiating that this billboard is racially charged. I say that weve reached the point nowadays that this should NOT be a problem. Its not like its saying white is better than black, or vice versa. Its just contrast. So what that they used human beings? They could have easily used dogs, or cats, or something else, yet somehow, if its human, its so much worse?

Is it because of slavery and oppression? How bout you forget about it, realize blacks as slaves is part of the past, and stop trying to dredge it up at every convenient chance you get? Yeah, theres still racism, still oppression, but ya know what? There is always gonna be. You could say "By accepting this add as not being racist, your saying its ok being racist, and that racism is ok"

Of course im not, im not saying that at all, but in my opinion, this does not seem racist, or insensitive, or anything of the sort, its simply an add, portaying a white person and a black person. Couldnt you say that always portraying attractive women, and men, is prejudice against not so attractive men and woman who are probably just as ridiculed as ethnic groups are today. Its rediculous bickering, when all this energy could be used on so much better things.
928  The Rest / General Discussions / LocoRoco to include Racist Elements? on: July 05, 2006, 07:21:38 AM
Ahh yeah, sorry Rico, its been awhile since I read the article.  My bad.
929  The Rest / General Discussions / LocoRoco to include Racist Elements? on: July 04, 2006, 05:53:29 AM
I have to agree this is rather rediculous.  I think it was morgan freeman who said that in order to remove racism, we have to think it doesnt exist (Or something along that lines, I forget the exact wording).  While obviously you cant just make something disappear by not thinking about it, he has a point in that if you try and point out anything REMOTELY racist, your adding to the fact that racism is still a viable and "normal" part of our culture, and while im totally against racism, I think sometimes people see things that arnt always there.

Frankly, everyones always gonna be racist, and prejudice, but its never generated towards one race in particular.  How many "white" folk are insulted racially? How many asians? Latinos?  How many homosexuals, other sexual preferences are prejudiced (is that a word?) againts ya know?

I mean if its obvious racism, like "This is my slave, african mcblackblack, go out back and whip him for 40 gold cause he tried to learn to read" or something, then yeah, theres a need to stand up, but something like this, or the "pokemon" thing.  Its fucking rediculous.
