It's different. You'll spend a lot more time working on your units (you can practically put your own mecha together by buying and upgrading parts). The story is more interactive. You visit towns and other places and you can talk to random NPC's, but it's all menu based.

If you're new to SRPG you may want to read this topic

I recommend Vandal Hearts (PSone). It looks horrible, but the gameplay is pretty good and unlike many newer SRPGs it sticks to the basics.

Nature decided male+female=offspring. Humans added morals.

We could always eat our young when we run out of resourches. It works in the animal kingdom, so it should work for us as well! :D

The hell? How could someone have sex with something that looks like an 8-year-old? Someone who's not a pedophile, I mean.

I don't care their games are low budget, easy and light-hearted. They always manage to keep me entertained for 30+ hours and that is good enough for me. And unlike many other RPG games Gust games never make me feel as if I'm doing chores. All the normally unpleasant parts (back tracking, gathering items, fighting random encounters) are painless and sometimes even fun.

I doubt this is new. Anyone remember those things from Xenosaga III you don't want to remember?
1522  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: My own brother disgusts me on: February 10, 2009, 03:56:17 PM
I'm his big senior, but I'm also the sister who was unable to finish college. I do have an income, but part of it comes from the government because of my disability. I work at home, so he doesn't see me go to work. He likes to hold that against me. In his eyes I'm a lazy freeloader.

His friends are just like him. Binge drinking is a favorite pasttime in this area. They all have jobs, but that is their excuse to not hold back during the weekends. My brother has gained a lot of weight the last 5 years. He used to be underweight as a kid and a bit chubby in his early teens. Now he's fat. His beergut has stretch marks, that's how fast it happened. And that's what worries me most, because many people from my dads side of the family died early because of unhealthy lifestyles. One of my aunts got so fat she couldn't walk anymore.

I can't ignore him. We both still live with our parents. I guess I could refuse to make his bed in the mornings and just leave his dirty laundry on the floor, but if I don't clean up after him the house will become filthy... And he's my brother. He may be an ass when he comes home from work, but we get along fine the rest of the time. It's not as if he's an agressive drunk, just a very unhealthy one.
1523  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / My own brother disgusts me on: February 10, 2009, 06:13:30 AM
Don't get me wrong, we get along quite well most of the time, but he can be so disgusting. Not farting at the table type of disgusting disgusting, but he's fat, smells like sweat and beer and talks as if he's proud of it!

Yesterday we were all sitting around the table and we were talking about things like odd jobs, how we spend our extra cash etc. My sister does some promotion work in the weekends and my brother commented he made a lot more money at her age. She replied she didn't need a lot of money to do the things she likes. Then my brother said "Yeah, you don't go out much. I have a very active social life and spend €400 a month on booze alone!"

It didn't stop there. My sister and I told him that's unhealthy and a waste of money. As a rebuttal he proudly exclaimed he's considered an alcoholic by some standards. He also said that we're all going to die eventually. To which I replied: "And you'll be the first one to go."

He didn't get mad, instead he started making fun of my social life. I went upstairs soon after, not wanting a confrontation. 

It's not just his drinking that disgusts me. He's also very fat. If I had to estimate his weight, I'd say he's around 250 pounds. He's starting to have a hard time fitting into XXL sized clothing. He eats unhealthy, snacks a lot. Sometimes he skips dinner saying the bratwurst contains to much fat. Which I kinda true, it's not something you want to eat when you're trying to lose weight. But do you know what he replaced the lost meal with? A salami pizza from the freezer. A 1000 kcal salt bomb!

He's not stupid. He is an assistant accountant, studying to become a fullfledged one. Maybe he is in denial. Everytime someone tries to say something about his lifestyle he starts verbally attacking that person. My mom could probably reason with him, but she doesn't. He isn't fat, he's just big boned. Yeah, right.

It annoys me, it disgusts me, but it also worries me.

I don't know what I want with this topic. Advice would be welcome. I guess I just wanted to tell this to someone who might listen.

Europe got Heritage of War. Europe. That makes me think the chances of the US getting Growlanser PSP aren't that slim...

4 days, 3 hours and 20 minutes.

Not I really spend that much time here. I leave windows open for multiple forums, even when I'm working. Yay for working at home?

I remember when money was a bigger problem then time. I don't know what's worse, not being able to buy the games you like or not being able to play the games you bought...

"He acts as an innkeeper and armor salesman and is the one who gives you the bazooka, of all things. He's also a living cameo, so he asks you if you've heard of his adventures fighting Zeromus and becoming a paladin (I find it funnier if you pretend you don't)."

Was that in the European version? We didn't get Final Fantasy IV until the end of the 32/64-bit era. We did get Secret of Evermore and it was great fun, because of the boss battles and some awesome settings. We also got Final Fantasy Mystic Quest, which isn't too bad when you're like 8 years old. It had some interesting boss battles as well. I like how you could see the boss weakening after doing certain amounts of damage. And you could kill the final boss with a simple cure spell, hehe.
1528  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Are you overwhelmed by your backlog? on: February 01, 2009, 03:11:50 AM
My backlog isn't that big:

PSone
-Alundra (weird, because I really like the game. I really need to finish this one this year)
-Final Fantasy VI (I tried to get into it three times, but failed every time...)
-Granstream Saga (the faceless people and almost everything else annoyed me and I quit halfway through the game)
-Persona (first person dungeons and weird localization kinda ruined it for me. Remake please?)
-Saiyuki (dunno why I quit playing this, I think I got distracted by something else)
-Thousand Arms (the first disc makes a very painful high-pitched noise)
-Vagrant Story (I think I quit because of save game troubles...)

PS2
-Grim Grimoire (bought it recently)
-Growlanser: Heritage of War (got this for Christmas, haven't played it yet)
-Jade Cocoon 2 (recent purchase)
-Magna Carta: Tears of Blood (slow game is slow)
-Musashi: Samurai Legend (I doubt I'm ever going to finish this)
-Ring of Red (interesting, but battles become tedius after a little while)
-Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner - Raidou Kuzunoha vs. the Soulless Army (bought it recently)
-UNLIMITED Saga (got the game for free, played it for a bit, then decided I will never finish it. That doesn't really count as a backlog game, does it?)

PSP
-Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology (recent purchase, brother is playing it now)
-Wild Arms XF (started, but then my brother wanted the PSP back to play God of War. I will continue when I get the chance)

Xbox360
Blue Dragon (recent purchase)
Eternal Sonata (recent purchse)
Fable II (it's my brother's game, but I want to play it too)

I usually buy a big stack of games when I go visit my friend. There is a big store there with a lot of used games. Last time I bought 5 PS2/PS RPG's for less than €90. Those games usually cost €40-€55 new or are impossible to find new, so I don't hold back when I go shopping there.

My rule of thumb is that I'll buy a console when it has 10 games on it I want to play.  Buying a $4-500 system for one game is just silly, if you ask me.

That's my rule too, but I fail at sticking to it.

1998: That new Zelda game looks great! And we'll also be getting Mother 64 and Tactics Ogre! And more! This is going to be great! I'll buy a N64! :D

In the end Nintendo killed mother and Europe didn't get Tactics Ogre. Hybrid Heaven was okayish, I guess. Mystical Ninja was crudely rendered awesomeness, of course. Pokémon Stadion was fun for a while and I had a lot of fun with Zelda... but... it's a good thing the N64 never was an expensive console.

2008: Fire Emblem! I must buy a Wii!

Games I bought for it myself: Fire Emblem: RD, Shining Force, Shining Force II and Tetris Party. Yes 3 out of 4 games were paid with Wii points. Most of the other things I played on it were games I had to review.
1530  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon DS on: January 23, 2009, 03:52:29 AM
Yes, the game gets points for epic turn-based battles. It's the longest Fire Emblem and it has a lot of different battle objectives. You won't be doing the same thing every chapter, that's for sure. Some people like the huge cast and switching between parties, others don't. I didn't mind it, but I wasn't fond of it either.

I didn't think the game was too difficult on normal. It gave me less trouble than FE7 HM and FE5 (that game was evil!). Wild Arms XF, one of the games I'm playing now, is giving me a lot more trouble than FE:RD ever did.
