Oh yeah, that. I was surprised they let me in. Eight years ago I was a stupid teenager and my English was pretty bad. I was afraid people like Dios were going to flame me, but everyone was actually really nice. And Sumire more of less ignored me, because I wasn't a potential minion.

Europe is still waiting for... like... everything that is not Final Fantasy, Unlimited Saga or Samurai Legend Musashi. Namco Europe is even worse. The only thing they ever gave us is Xenosaga 2, even though they're sitting on a big pile of Tales titles.

I love my NTSC U/C PS2. And companies like Koei. Koei's great.

Hey, is it difficult to play imports on the Xbox 360?

With FFX no game previously enabled you to change characters in battle on the fly

Breath of Fire IV.

BoF4 did a better job of it as well. Sure, you had to switch party members to hit monsters' weaknesses in Final Fantasy X, but Breath of Fire IV had a neat little combo system and the people in the back row actually did something, like cheer the people in the front row on.

It's not just that, it was all related to the story as well. Ari is the type of person people overlook and after a certain event
it gets so bad people can't even see him anymore. The player is then encouraged to go around the world and speak up. You can't continue the game until everyone is aware of his existance.

Looks like fanservicy RPG's are going to be more common. I wonder when they'll release a game that caters to the yaoi crowd?

So I finished watching Metal Gear Solid 4.

Not an RPG mind you, but the sheer cannonade of vitriol the fanbase expunges towards even the most moderate of critics over that game is disgusting. I don't think RPGs are alone in this era of fandumb. It's gaming as a whole. About the only thing not on the chopping block is the sports genre.

You think? Ever seen a PES versus FIFA discussion? Scary stuff.

Yes, and instead of fusing them together, you make them make babies. And then you make the offspring make babies, because incest is totally a kind of eugenetica.

Not creepy at all, nope.

And don't get me started on pokéballs and little kids being kicked out of their house to promote animal cruelty.

In the Persona games I usually give the answers that grant the highest rewards. Being a dick to everyone just screws you over. Because of that the MC (especially in P3 and P4) felt too perfect, he doesn't really represent me. In Persona 4, I thought Naoto and Kanji were much easier to relate to XD
1494  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Secret Party Members in RPGs on: April 24, 2009, 12:07:51 PM
secret characters are cool. it's funny though how many i've missed in games like srw and fire emblem because i was supposed to talk to an enemy instead of killing them.

Heh? It's not that difficult to find out which enemy characters are recruitable in Fire Emblem games.
1. Portraits. Recruitable characters and boss characters are the only enemies with portraits.
2. Talk status. Most Fire Emblems have a screen that displays exactly who can talk with who.

Characters like Stefan are much worse.
1495  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The youthful protagonists thread on: April 24, 2009, 12:02:45 PM
FFXII has Balthier and Bash but the MC is Vaan.

Didn't they create Vaan (and Penelo) to give players a character they can relate to?

Perhaps that is the problem with many Japanese RPG's, they focus too much on making characters that most players can relate to (young character, new to the world the game is set in), instead of creating interesting characters?

I never knew Golden Sun was so controversial! Like some others, I found the game to be positively excellent, and think it holds up well even today.

Golden Sun was one of the first GBA RPG's, so it got a lot of attention. It's not a bad game by any means, but there are plenty of GBA RPG's that can compete with it for that spot. However, Golden Sun is a popular game, so I guess it's an essential game if you want to know what everyone is talking about.

When I was still in high school, someone from my year bought a rat during lunchbreak and brought it to school. I was surprised the petstore sold it to her like that. I mean, she was walking around with it as if it was some mascot animal from a cartoon or comicbook.

Perhaps that is what people expect, a fluffy sidekick that will only act in ways that are convenient for the owner, right from the start. That's not how it works. If you want a good pet, you have to train it. You have the be strict, but at the same time you need to try to understand why the animal does the things it does.

My rabbits become more and more interesting as I learned more about their behaviour. For instance, Senka wiggles her tail a lot. People often thinks she does that because she is happy, but what she's actually trying to say is "leave me alone, you're annoying." Beppie, my little albino, had the habit of biting everything she was unfamiliar with, including people. This was often seen as aggression, but she was only trying to see what kind of material she was dealing with, she was curious. Chibi used to bite whoever tried to give him food. He was not trying to be mean, he was bored and wanted to challenge the owner. This behaviour disappeared almost as soon as he got more living space, a partner and some toys.

I'd replace Golden Sun with Fire Emblem. Golden Sun was nothing more than an above avarage game to me. The graphics were nice, the battle system was fast enough and most of the dungeons were fun. What annoyed me was that the characters all talked to much. They needed whole minutes to explain even the most basic things. I don't mind huge amounts of text boxes in games like Phoenix Wright, because those characters have something interesting/entertaining to say? But Golden Sun had boring characters that talked about boring things, bah.

That was long, but interesting. I had no idea SEGA had been close to deals with all companies that now rule the market.

Hey, is it me, or is there a lot of SEGA talk lately? Is something going to happen or are we all feeling nostalgic?

If you had good reasons and the animals didn't suffer...

What bothers me more is that people buy pets without knowing much about them. Many people think rabbits don't need much space, because the ones in pet stores are so small, but rabbits love running and jumping. Others think rabbits are like living toys and that they'll sit on your lap whenever you want, when in fact most rabbits don't like being held. And then there are many who fail to realize most pets, rabbits included, ask for long term commitment. Little Timmy might be 8 years old now and love his little furball, but the rabbit will still be there when he hits puberty and finds new interests.

I got my first rabbit for my sixth birthday and my second one a few months after that. It was my cousin's, but it was hard for her to take care of it, because it was agressive. The rabbit was lonely, bored and had a strong personality to boot. She calmed down soon after she moved in with my rabbit, but never stopped disliking people, because of bad experiences she had early on. But she did like me and she was very smart. When I opened her cage and then the door to the stairs, she knew I was going upstairs and that she could come. She'd run ahead of me and wait by my door. She died when I was fifteen. She wasn't what most people look for in a rabbit, but she was a great pet and was with me for most of my childhood.
