I got my hands on Kingdom Hearts II today and I played it for four and a half hours straight. That's the first I've done that with any game since Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance last fall. Okay, so I guess that wasn't too long ago, but still!

I was somewhat disoriented at first having not played Chain of Memories and having no idea what was going on. I'm glad the game filled me in to some extent. And wow, it was actually pretty sad.

Poor Roxas. It was kind of heartbreaking to me to find out he was only a portion of Sora. I suspected something along those lines from the get-go, but it was still sad.

I stopped at Yen Sid's tower. Supposed to be reading some book.

Only RPG I've finished so far this year would be Grandia III. Though I imagine Kingdom Hearts II will be on that list in a few weeks.

I was recently introduced to the band, Flogging Molly, by a friend. I am in love.

Currently listening to Drunken Lullabies by Flogging Molly.

I would have been just fine with Nintendo Fuck Yea, or Uber-Nintendo 69. If Nintendo GO is true, though, I won't complain. A bland name if you ask me, but then again I think all of Nintendo's home systems have had lackluster names.

I'm still buying one :P

Breath of Fire II is a great game. As Eusis said, it actually tried for a story which was original at the time. The first one is just a dungeon crawler with a high encounter rate and a story that makes Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest look like a Shakespeare tragedy.

That's why we're Americans Deg. :P

EDIT: On topic, I still prefer brownies to cookies on most days of the week. Especially if buying from the store. Brownies > cookies.

Ghost in the Shell seem a lot more plausible now.

I think this is pretty cool actually, though I did find it funny at the end of the article where it says they're working on a way to not damage the neurons during the process.

Quote from: "Sketch"
And just curious, from those who thought the final boss was unreasonably hard, what the hell was tough about him? He wasn't easy, but he definately wasn't 'break your controller' hard. My heart was pounding the entire way through it, though.

Yea, I just finished the game and I actually found the last boss to be one of the easier ones in the game. Emelious was much harder. It was a very anti-climactic final boss battle, IMO.

The ending also left a lot to be desired, though really the whole game did as far as plot and characters are concerned. But yea I found myself not caring the game was over. I didn't even bother watching the credits.

Fun game, but really needed some help as far as actual story goes. Alfina was nearly enough to make me turn the game off and never play it again, but I persevered against her wicked VA and nonexistent character development!

I think I'll be taking the game back to GameStop when I go pick up Kingdom Hearts 2 this week.
954  The Rest / General Discussions / Mario has nothin on this dude. on: March 27, 2006, 08:17:18 PM
I agree with Neal that jumping was a little awkward, especially when I made it to the part with moving platforms and pits underneath. Poor flashpants fell down the same pit three times in a row.

But it was entertaining.

Lil Jimmy doesn't know his own lil jimmy can stand up straight and be both delicious and nutritious to the girlies.

... :(

That's just messed up. I remember kids my age sending love notes when I was in first grade. I even remember boys who would pinch girls in the butt, and guess what, the girls often did the same thing to them!

Obviously this boy needs help. :P
956  The Rest / General Discussions / Square Enix to make a "surprise" E3 announcement on: March 27, 2006, 05:55:45 PM
I would enjoy a Final Fantasy VII remake, but I don't think it is necessary. Aside from a few typos in the US version I really don't see anything wrong with the game. I even enjoy the graphics still. I suppose for younger gamers who may not have been around at the time it was released would welcome a remake. After all, it has been around nine years since its release.

I won't even guess what the surprise announcement will be. I'd like to see a new Chrono game be announced more than anything, but that most likely won't happen.

I'll just wait and see.
957  The Rest / General Discussions / Chocolate Chip or Oreo on: March 27, 2006, 05:43:17 PM
I never liked any kind of Oreo until they finally gave the world "Uh-Oh Oreos."

But they still can't compare to the mighty home made chocolate chip cookies. I love eating them soon after they've been taken out of the oven and the chocolate is all gooey. Ah, ecstasy!

I made it to the end of Surmania expecting to finish the game and the game didn't end! aldsk;fjasd;fljads;fjads;ljf

Just killed the Omega Breed boss at the beginning of, I'm hoping, the final area.
959  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Are Storylines Really So Important? on: March 25, 2006, 06:58:15 PM
Once upon a time I thought story was unimportant and as long as the RPG was FUN to play. That is until I played Star Ocean 3. I hear epic, fantastic plot, and what do I find? Characters that piss me off to no end and a story that crapped out within the first five hours. I loved the battle system, but I just couldn't stand the incoherent characters and a story that wasn't going anywhere so I gave up on it.

After that experience I revised my rules: If the battle system is fun, and with plot and characters that don't just end up annoying me, I'll most likely enjoy it.

A recent example, though not the best one, is Grandia III. It has a simple plot, and characters that hardly develop. But neither of them are so annoying to keep me from playing and enjoying the game...though Alfina comes damn close at times.

Grandia III reminds me a lot of an updated RPG from 15 years ago. The story and characters are both very undeveloped yet it's fun to play.

Okay, I've given my rambling two cents.
960  The Rest / General Discussions / Game journal yeah whoo. on: March 25, 2006, 05:20:51 AM
I'm now in Surmania in Grandia III.

I'm at the save just after the death of Raven.

I love the battle system for this game, but wow, I really don't care about the characters or the story. If this game had been released 15 years ago it would have been fantastic story wise, but by today's standards it is severely lacking in that department.
