Joke account, I hope?

I like Disgaea's character designs and since most of the story scenes consist of practically nothing but character art, I don't think the game looks that bad. Not eye-bleeding bad in any case...

- an unnamed event takes place that leaves Aspel desiring strength

Village is burned down by the imperial army and/or his childhood friend is kidnapped, because she's the chosen one. Oh his mentor/father was killed because he knew some ancients secrets, or something.

Place your bets!

Quote
- Quote attributed to Aspel - “I don’t want to lose anyone again.”

Isn't that what they all say?

Quote
- games theme is “Protect” or “Defend”

Original.


Quote
- large story

Environmental friendly too, as it's made from recycled material.

Quote
- new gameplay elements

*insert silly acronym here*

I dunno if that is hardcore. My brother plays stuff like Breath of Fire, Suikoden, Fire Emblem, Xenogears etc. These are not games he would buy himself, he goes through my collection and plays whatever he thinks looks interesting. When he buys his own games it's usually something like Fifa Street of Def Jam. He's more of a cheap ass casual gamer than a genuine hardcore gamer.

Years of bad experiences, mostly.

While there's cases where they're tolerable or even handled relatively realistically (Sue), a lot of the time it just seems that they're there to fulfill some silly quota.

A generic RPG cast has a very high chance of containing:
-hero dude
-mage/healer girl who may or may not be the chosen one
-tough guy
-ninja girl
-animal/mascot
-mysterious guy
-annoying brat

You could almost be describing Tales of Symphonia's cast with that list.

Final Fantasy VII and X too. And more...

BTW I liked Genis, he was cute :)

(and technically Soren)

Code:
He's the same age as Ike, maybe even older. Even though he ages slower than normal he still looks like a teenager and teenagers are common in JRPGs.

What's even more interesting: they try to degrade you -> you degrade them -> they turn into lovesick stalkers. That's how Sumire got most of her followers.

The guys who are flattering seem more in love with an idea: finding someone who shares something they love. 

Yep. They focus on one aspect, a common interest called gaming, and ignore pretty much everything else. Some even fail to notice the girl doesn't like the same type of games he likes. If he likes FPS and she likes point&click adventures they aren't likely to play games together.

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.
1496  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: would you say the older you get, the less fun games are on: March 30, 2009, 03:54:59 AM
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.

Yes.

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!
