New pet peeve: webshops that don't keep their website up to date, listing items that are no longer available as in stock. I'm still waiting for that Final Fantasy Legend game I ordered 9 years ago from Futurezone, good thing it was pay upon arrival, heh. Proxis isn't any better, 14 of my 15 orders there were canceled by Proxis, because the items I ordered we no longer available. Again, good thing I didn't have to pay in advance. Last week I ordered Tales of the Abyss from Next-Level. I had to pay in advance. Guess what happened? I'll probably get my money back soon, but this is really annoying. Tales of the Abyss is very hard to find and I thought lady luck was siding with me for once...

The only thing I don't like about it is the tiny touchpad, the one on the Wind is larger. Keyboards are almost the same (and they're both pratically fullsized). I prefer the one on the Wind, because of the larger backspace key and the fullsized arrow keys. The NC10 has a larger right shift key.

Other differences:
-NC10 has longer battery life, 6,5 hours versus 5,5 hours, IIRC
-NC10 looks fancier, because of the chrome
-Wind is a better name than NC10, because it's a great set-up for lame Fire Emblem jokes.

People who can't accept other people aren't their clones.

"I don't understand why you would want to play videogames."

"I can't understand why you don't like my favourite boyband."

"I don't understand why you read so many books, why don't you go to parties like I do?"

I'm not asking people to understand, but it would be nice if they could atleast accept that I'm an individual and don't neccesarily like the things they like. What's so bad about people doing their own thing anyway? Friendship isn't about being carbon copies of eachother.

Samsung's netbook (the NC10) is excellent. Both the screen and keyboard have a decent size (so no horizontal scrolling and tidalwaves of typos) and it doesn't have any heating problems like many other netbooks. The MSI Wind is also recommended, since that's basically the system all other good mini notebooks were based on.

But the remake seems to be based on the PSone version.

Atlus is my first choice as well. Atlus, or maybe Xseed.

Two weeks ago Xseed did mention wanting to bring over a "enhanced remake of a classic PSone RPG" in this interview.
1478  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lunar: Harmony of Silver Star on: May 13, 2009, 03:47:42 PM
Well, the Psone version was more of a port of a remake... which probably isn't much better.

My problem with this remake? The first remake was great, can the new remake meet the standards Silver Star Story set? The first two versions were good games, but being a remake of a good game is no guarantee for quality.
1479  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lunar: Harmony of Silver Star on: May 13, 2009, 01:34:34 AM
Do we really need a third Lunar: The Silver Star remake? Wouldn't it be much easier to port the Saturn/PSone version and make some minor adjustments?

Maybe it was just me, but a lot of the girls there seemed to fit at least some kind of archetype.  Though now that I think about it, maybe not.  The girls were just weird, even for high school girls, but at least in a fun way.  I remember having an argument with someone over the characters in this game a while ago, so maybe that's where the idea came from.

I haven't played it in a while, so maybe I'm just exaggerating.  Sorry.

There's the catgirl (who seems to be obsessed with finding a good boyfriend, because she wants a lot of babies), the gothic lolita ghost girl, the sick cute girl, the mature 12-year-old...

But the game tried to cater to the female players as well, or maybe that's just the English version. Have you heard some of the conversations between Vayne and Roxis? And their ending? I'm sure that spawned fanfics...

It annoys me that RPGs made in America or Europe are all lumped together into one all-encompassing 'WRPG' genre and then dismissed as all being the same. I don't like tri-Ace, but I don't assume every other game made in Japan will play similarly.  Many 'JRPG' fans would love BioWare's games because of the strong characters and stories, but for some odd reason they're lumped together with Bethesda's stuff, even though they're nothing alike. And the main complaints about Mass Effect (bland art style, dull side quests) can't be levelled at their earlier games either, just look at some screenshots of Jade Empire or try some of the side quests in Baldur's Gate II.

I'm not saying I don't like any RPGs from the west, just that it's much harder to find ones I like. I like Jade Empire, but I'm not a Star Wars fan, or science fiction in general for that matter.
1483  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Kitase: Final Fantasy XIII not a JRPG on: May 08, 2009, 06:04:41 AM
There are several reasons why I rarely play western RPGs.

1. Hardware. Most of the good ones are PC games and I have a laptop from 2003. I did try to play some older games like Lands of Lore, but I don't really like first person games. I also don't like playing with a mouse and keyboard.

2. Choices. There are already so many choices I need to make in reallife, so I usually prefer it when there is a clear objective in the games I play. I don't want to wander around and do some quests until stuff happens. I don't mind if I can't pick the role I play, as long as it's a role worth playing.

3. Graphics. I'm sorry, but I prefe colourful games over the brownish and grayish ones with maybe some green. If a game is brown/gray/green it better have some unusual and creative setting, not just dreary towns and realistic forests.

I don't like the water temples with those puzzles where you have to raise or lower the water level by flipping a bunch of switches divided by atleast 10 random encounters.
1485  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: "The Greatest Enemy of the RPG Genre" article... on: May 05, 2009, 02:13:38 AM
I'd say the main game is usually more fun than all the tacked on extras and hidden things. For me the fun usually starts declining somewhere near the end and I'd rather start a new game after finishing it, than going back to all the secrets in the game I was playing.

Fun isn't always of the same quality. The cummalative fun from short game can equal that of a longer game. Now, if someone could define "fun", we'd be able to do some math, because math is fun. Or not.
