After seeing stuff like this on the internet for years and my characters having gotten hit on often back in ye olde PSO days, it makes me wonder.  Why do socially inept guys think they'll actually score a date from a gaming forum or an online game?  Do they think that girls who'd frequent those kinds of cyber hangouts are easy and would actually date their sorry behinds?

Not easy, but their only hope. I think they think something like "OMG, a girl I have something in common with! We like the same games/anime/comics, I totally have a chance with her!"

The Popolocrois games are total cuteness, I guess you could call them kiddy games. I can tolerate kids in a game like that, because the story follows the rules of children's stories. But the token super happy/bratty kid surrounded by adults (I use the term loosely...) in a serious story? Nah. That's annoying.

I have more games to play, less time to play them.

As a kid I got maybe 4 new games a year, if I was really lucky. I tried to play all of them, even if they were bad, because games were expensive and you should not waste money. I could easily spend one hunderd hours on the really good games.

Nowadays I get 1-2 new games a week. I play most of those games as a reviewer. Not all of those games are games I would normally play, but someone has to tell people Ready 2 Rumble Revolution is a horrible, horrible game. I still play a lot of RPGs from start to finish, but the odds of me replaying a game are low.

When do you get stat boosting and TP restoring foods in the Tales games :/

IIRC all Tales games with cooking have TP restoring dishes. You usually get a recipe that restores 20% TP early in the game. Some games also have dishes that temporarily give stat boosts. For instance, in Tales of Symphonia you can make riceballs (small HP & TP restoration) and seafood stew (small TP restoration, temp. def+). You get both these recipes way before the end of the game.

Otaku senior citizens, I guess. Actually, that would make perfect sense.

-- Cooking, in every Tales game I've played. Sure, it's a mainstay. And in theory, it's useful because you can only have up to 20 gel units of each kind of gel, whereas you get a lot more ingredients in general, so you save your gels for battle and cook outside of battle. In practice, cooking doesn't heal enough HP to be actually useful, 20 of each kind of gels is plenty enough for any given dungeon, and if you need to heal in batte, use a healing mage.

I always use it for MP restoration. It's often cheaper than regular items.

-- And a question to the peanut gallery: Was magic useful in Terranigma?

Best way to take down Bloody Mary if you don't want to grind. Otherwise? No.

Funiest part:

From introduction:

The original goal of Aiko was to help our aging population to do simple tasks like make tea and coffee, tell them the weather, read a magazine or remind them to take their medication at the correct time. There are many applications for Aiko in the home, office or public places.

From gallery:

This must be one of its many applications!

I agree. When I hear a song from Chrono Trigger in a game that is not Chrono Trigger, I will associate it with Chrono Trigger and how I experienced that game, not with the game I'm currently playing. Stealing popular scores won't make me enjoy a game more, it might even make it forgettable.
1465  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Persona 3 is getting on my nerves. on: March 28, 2009, 03:10:18 PM
Yes, all you need to do is prepare for everything and it isn't that difficult to cover the bases... I had more trouble with the final boss from Wild Arms III. Just as many forms and some of them required some nasty trick that wasn't very obvious. Persona 3 on the hand, gives you all the information you need.
1466  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The RPG towns thread on: March 28, 2009, 04:47:43 AM
I'm a whore for growing/expanding cities.

Play Terranigma.

Terranigma had some great towns, because they tried to make every place unique instead of just the next "equipment upgrade here" town. Doing all the little sidequests to boost the economy was fun. Neotokyo had some cute little easter eggs
until everyone was killed with that virus
And then there is Crysta of course, it's a lovely town with lovely music and then you find out the truth. The towns in that game were all properly connected to the storyline, that's what makes them memorable.

I'm currently playing Persona 4 and Inaba is great. It's a lot like my town, but a bit larger and with murders instead of suicides.

SO2's Indy was cheap. PS3's boss? Not so much. It was a long fight and a bit annoying because of the arcana shifts, but it isn't too difficult as long as you don't forget to scan. I don't think I was overleveld, I just fought 75% of the enemies I encountered on my way through Tartarus.
1468  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Your current-gen top rpg list on: March 26, 2009, 02:47:38 AM
Okay, lemme see what I've played and finished so far...

Dragon Quest Monsters - JOKER
Lunar Dragon Song
Children of Mana
Luminous Arc
Final Fantasy III
Etrian Odyssey
From the Abyss
Dragon Quest V
Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
Astonishia Story
(Puzzle Quest)
Riviera: The Promised Land

That's more than I thought I had played, but most of it is crap or port/remake. There is very little that is actually exclusive to the new consoles/handhelds. My brother owns a Xbox 360 and I've played Blue Dragon and Fable II on it, so I'll count those as well.

A top 5 would probably look like:
1. Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn
2. Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon
3. Etrian Odyssey
4. Dragon Quest V
5. Fable

Frankly, the PS2 is the system I use the most. Companies are still releasing all sorts of RPGs for it. Last month I had a lot of fun with Mana Khemia and now I'm pouring all my free time into Persona 4.

Health experts generally tell you to eat more slowly, and to drink water while you eat(sometimes as much as one swallow of water per forkful of food).

They do? Back in elementary school there was a teacher who never let us drink anything during lunch, because it was supposed be bad for your health. I usually had something like whole grain bread with peanutbutter with me, so after a few bites I has always thirsty, but I wasn't allowed to drink until I finished my bread. That sucked so much. I'm glad the bitch was wrong.
1470  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: I give up... NISA is making me sick of localizations.... on: March 22, 2009, 04:57:39 PM
XSeed is great. They pick up decent titles and their localisations are solid. No complaints there.

I know you guys have heard this one.  But at least we are getting the Cross Edge game. (Raises shield in defense).

I'm the same way. Crappy localisations? That sucks, but if I want to play the game I'll buy it regardless of what the publisher did. The alternatives are playing the game in a language I don't understand or not playing the game at all. The alternatives are worse and the localisation could ever be.
