1576  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Favorite "Tales of" Game and why? on: August 13, 2012, 02:54:59 AM
Once again, I'd love to hear your explanation of why Vesperia's battle system is broken. 

Me too, man. I played the game front to back with almost zero problems, and the only problems I did have were due to the AI that I didn't know how to change at the time.

Yuri's one of the most powerful protagonists in the series, if not the most powerful, but that's all I can think of... Oh and you can do this crazy chain thing with Rita, but it doesn't work very well when it really counts (though boss battles). Most Tales games have one or two tricks you can exploit, but those never really destroyed the battle system.

Anyway, my favourite is Abyss. Really liked the characters. Luke may be an annoying/depressed idiot, but it's hard not the sympathise with him. Second favourite is Vesperia, I think. For similar reasons. And it reminds me of Lunar, which is a good thing, because I love Lunar.

I don't drink coffee, but I'd buy something there just to pay them back for having the guts to make a joke that most of the public won't get. :)
Including me. Care to explain it?
Someone doesn't get the laws of equivalent exchange, hurr hurr.

Edit: I just came up with another one.
I wonder if that coffee has been passed down for generations in the Armstrong Family?

Oh, and never ever order a tall latte there!

I got... Ryohei Kato, a gymnast.

A guy. Of course. Always a guy...

I'm a reverse Dincrest.

I'd rather have a job I truly enjoy and make less money than make a ton of money doing a job that crushes my soul.  I can't put a price tag on my happiness and sanity. 
First. That's pretty much my situation and I wouldn't want it any other way. Besides, I can stretch those peanuts I get paid pretty far. Combine that with not having many wants or needs and life is quite comfortable.

On the other hand, I guess getting decent pay for a job I don't have and having enough spare time to enjoy it would be nice, too...

Hi people without kids. </asshat>

All in all, safe job for me. I had my dream job and it didn't pay enough. Now I have a depressing job, but I can afford to keep my family off the streets. Fair trade.

Heh, it's not like my parents had much more to spend and the five of us (two adults, three kids) had it good too. We were considered poor by many standards, but bills were paid on time, there was enough food, we had the clothes we needed, our home was nice and clean, and we could afford small luxuries if we saved up. I even had my own laptop. Sure, it was used and outdated, but with some creativity I was able to use it for years. The experience of getting that thing to do what I wanted it to do made me happier than a new laptop could have made me.

I'm playing it, but my PSP is on its last legs and it's suprisingly difficult to find a replacement. So now the game freezes every 15-20 minutes and I'm playing without music half the time. The game is pretty enjoyable though.

Ah, the blind deaf maid from outer space who's suffering from dementia, right?

Nah, I just wear glasses and sweatervests.

I think I might be moe.

I went to give blood today. I'm pretty good at bleeding, so I walked in without a worry. I had forgotten about the nurses. 98% of all the nurses I've ever met have had this 'aw, look at her being adorkable, I must protect her!' reaction to me. The other 2% is my mom and she's a 99 pound badass, so she doesn't give a shit as long as I'm not chopped in two. Which can be kind of nice, because having people worry about you is annoying.

Anyway, first the doctor wanted to double check a bunch of stuff. Apparently all the healthy looking stats on my digital chart didn't fit my (adorable, weak) appearance. She made me drink a bottle of water, despite me being perfectly hydrated (and wanting a bathroom break really badly). The nurse who hooked me up was nice, but afterwards she made me stay in the chair and drink my tea there. I wasn't allowed to leave the chair until she gave the okay. I was feeling fine by the way. After waiting for a while and getting bored, I sighed. Another nurse noticed this, and quickly dropped the chair back, because I obviously wasn't feeling well despite my protests. Two nurses and a doctor later, I was finally allowed out of the chair, but the nurse wouldn't let me walk away unsupervised or even unsupported. She told yet another nurse not to let me leave and to check up on me every now and then. Everyone kept offering me something to drink, but since they already made me drink over a litre in less than an hour, the only thing I really, really wanted was to go to the bathroom (again).  

In the end I was able to flee when the current overprotective nurse turned her back to me to make some more tea. Then I walked to the other side of town and got some awesome ice cream (to make up for the really shitty cookies they made me eat).

Edit: ugh, they made me drink too much and now I have a headache...

Wow, that's a real mess, like something out of a tv show... Good to hear both sisters are all right.

I just want to say that I think the music pack for this game is the single greatest piece of DLC I have ever encountered.

The free DLC, Makina Domain, is pretty cool too. It took three trips and multiple months of synthesis, but I just slaughtered everything in there.

I'm just several endings away from platinum.... but I'm not going to bother with that. The past sixty hours were fun and that's enough for me. I'll youtube the endings I missed.

My brother and uncle are organising a family gettogether, but they keep neglecting to send me the e-mails. So while others already know when and where is it, what it's going to cost and what the payment deadline is, I haven't received any information outside of what mom told me. My brother says he can't send me anything, because he doesn't know my e-mail address, but I've given it to him personally more than once. Yesterday he told me that's not good enough, he doesn't use paper anymore and it got lost. He still lives at home ( I don't, but I usually visit twice a week) and my e-mail address is also in my parents' addressbook. I guess I should just take the hint and stop asking about it. He doesn't want me to come...

Of all the articles in the first post, this was the only one that surprised me:

A poll revealed that almost all teachers have been forced to work in classrooms where temperatures exceed 24C, while a third have taught in 30C.

Does it matter? You can't control the weather and airco isn't everything either. Sometimes it rains all day and you arrive at school all wet, because your raincoat couldn't handle it. Something you're in the wrong classrooms during the wrong time of year and the room temperature rises to 33 degrees celsius. You just learn to cope and keep on studying. Learning enviroments are rarely ideal, but the weather is the least we should worry about.

If there was anything (or anyone) that ruined classes for me, it would be fellow stupid who wouldn't stop messing around and teacher who gave up on trying to correct them. I guess it's easier to just complain about the weather than to actually improve the situation. I wonder who's lazier in that situation, the students or the adults...

I don't remember my years of secondary education fondly, but they did teach me something useful and that's self-discipline. Atleast I understand that you often have to do things you don't enjoy to accomplish something in life.

I'm glad this wasn't anything like that. It was a guild thing, though it's not something they've done before. This was a nuisance (and illegal if they didn't get permission), but in the end it's all in good fun. The fair is the most important social gathering of the year in this village after all.

Edit: Looks like they won't use the sirene again next year. The thing was so loud it could be heard the next town over. Some of the old folks got confused and thought the Germans were attacking.

I just woke up to something that sounded somewhere in between something to racing passed you to break the sound barrier and failing, and the civil defence sirene. Turns out it was some asshole riding through town using a sirene... for I don't know what. I guess he could be a guild member trying to gather people at the fair grounds on the outskirts of town. I understand the guild is important, but this is ridiculous. It's early in the morning, I wanted to sleep some more!

I think it finally stopped. After half an hour it finally stopped.

In From the Abyss I found a ring that absorbed all fire damage in a fire dungeon in which all the enemies only had fire attacks. Stayed there for a bit longer than absolutely necessary and squished the of the (short, short) game.
