Fuck this economy in WoW. Who the fuck sells a DEMON BAND http://www.thottbot.com/?i=3604 FOR 20g?


Items around levels 17-19 and 27-29, especially rings and necklaces, are big on the PvP twinks who play characters that do nothing but PvP all day and all night.  My dad has over 500g just by buying Falcon's Hooks at 2g or less and selling them for 7-10g.

Comparing games to previous titles in the same series is almost a must when it comes to games of any genre.  While it's important to extol on the virtues of a game, it's also important for there to be a benchmark set aside from score.  It seems like you're more angry about the score than the review itself.  When I reviewed Digital Devil Saga 2, a direct sequel, it was important to draw parallels as to what was different and what was the same - if I had simply reviewed it as a standalone game, it wouldn't have been nearly as insightful as the review was written in the end.

You also have to consider the audience of a magazine vs the audience of a site like RPGFan.  The average person coming to our site is going to have some knowledge of RPGs and will want to play them.  The average reader of PSM or GameSpot or IGN may have no interest whatsoever in playing a turn based title, and the reviews and scores tend to reflect the audience.

I'm sure there's some mainstream genre that you don't like, that's par for the course for someone who posts here.  While you might shake your head and say "How did Winning Eleven 9 get an eleventy billion out of 10?", there's going to be at least 10 guys going "Why did an RPG get anything higher than 5/10?  This turn based shit sucks."  Believe it or not, RPGs are still a very niche genre in America if the name on the packaging isn't Square Enix or Konami.  Even then, things slip straight through the cracks (Romancing SaGa, Ys: Ark, etc).

Get over yourself.  You've not even played the game yet and yet you're insulting someone for their opinion over the game?  Let me be totally honest with you: if I had been the reviewer instead of Pat, It would've gotten somewhere between a 78 and an 83.  Am I "a dumb bitch"?

Where is Fallout 2 and Planescape: Torment?!


Pfft, the games wouldn't have probably made the list anyway since they were made by American devils.  Now if they'd been Square Enix games, then we'd be talking.


Hey, PlaneScape and Baldur's Gate 1 & 2 were published by Sega in Japan.  Sega!  They're Japanese!

Though, honestly, that brings the total amount of PC games in Japan that aren't hentai, love adventure, or Falcom-developed to like 12.

Oh, right, Planescape just came out like 3 months ago in Japan.  Poor, poor PC Gaming in Japan.

Machi is a Japan-only Adventure title for the Saturn.  Here's an auction for one:

Engines and Turbines would only create thrust, not lift, and if the thrust is cancelled, there's still no air moving over and under the wings for lift.  I say not with a standard plane, no

seriously

i think i am looking for a game that doesnt exist

a hybrid between
shenmue
earthbound
pokemon
chrono trigger
final fantasy xiv
riviera
and some sports titles



i cant get no satisfaction


So you want a football game where you ask people if they have seen a man in a black car while hitting Mr. Saturn with a bat and collecting pikachus throughout time, while doing everything with a point and click interface in a game that doesn't exist (Final Fantasy 14?).

That makes sense.

they should have called the company e-soft


sounds way better than 'square-enix'


Squaresoft had a strong brand name.  Enix had a strong brand name.

Calling it "E-Soft" would eliminate just about every piece of brand loyalty they had.  They did what was a smart move, hands down.  Keep all of the brand loyalty with a simple name.

Sorry, I need to be more clear.

http://www.imdb.com/chart/top  Top rated.  Not top grossing.

Straight from Fark.com:

Start with an actor's profile.  Follow links until you get to a top 10 movie.

For example, starting with Nikki Cox:

Nikki Cox -> Terminator 2 -> Edward Furlong -> American History X -> Ethan Suplee -> The Butterfly Effect -> Ashton Kutcher -> Reindeer Games -> Ben Affleck -> Mallrats -> Kevin Smith -> Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back -> Mark Hamill -> Star Wars

Now, there are a couple of stipulations I'm going to add on.  No Television.  No citing JFK.  No citing any Kevin Smith films aside from Clerks.  No Rat Race, No Mad Mad Mad Mad World.  Essentially, just don't use any of those movies that have tons and tons of cameos.

First actress?

EQ2 is far more 'casual' than EQ1 and FFXI - you can do quite a bit of Soloing, you're not stuck to a group like you are in FFXI.
