1621  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Graphics in RPGs - how important are they to you? on: April 16, 2009, 10:53:36 AM
Graphics are important, because they show what I'm and everything else is doing on the screen. Graphics need to atleast be functional. Look at Tetris for the Gameboy, totally unimpressive, but still very playable. Now look at Vandal Hearts, ugly, but the graphics don't get in the way of the gameplay. There are also games like Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Echoes of Time. That game is unplayable on my TV, because someone thought singleplayer splitscreen was a great idea. I can't read the text and I can barely see what I'm doing. Graphics ruined the gameplay.

Oh and more polygons doesn't equal prettier. Style matters. Style is why I think Kingdom of Loathing looks more appealing than generic next-gen action game #87.

Strangely, cultivated carrots were originally purple or yellow. Apparently, carrots weren't bred to be orange until the 17th century. From Wikipedia:
The western carrot emerged in the Netherlands in the 17th century,[12] its orange colour making it popular in those countries as an emblem of the House of Orange and the struggle for Dutch independence.
The ones I grew tasted exactly like orange carrots.

I knew about purple carrots predating the orange ones, but I had no idea they became popular because it's connected to our royal family. That's a fun little fact, thanks :)

From GameFAQs:

Vandal Hearts is a Role-Playing game, developed and published by Konami, scheduled to be released in 2010.

Didn't they announce it somewhere in 2004? I very much doubt the game was in development for over five years.

I wouldn't be surprised if Flames of Judgment is what Vandal Hearts DS was supposed to be.

The setting sounds pretty cool. At the very least it's an guarantee this game will actually have a futuristic setting, instead consisting of any backwater planet after another. The plot reminds me of Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter, I don't know if that's a good or a bad thing.

We used to have sunflowers, but that as years ago... We used to have a lot of flowers. My mom and dad used to have a little rose tree with red roses, a wedding gift. They moved twice and the tree always went with them. For a long time it gave us one rose every year. It withered away a few years ago.

To be honest, our garden is a mess now, because we don't do a whole lot of gardening. My dad sometimes starts a little project (usually strawberry or tomatoplants), but the plants are gone before there's any fruit, because he loses interest >_<

I miss the flowers, but a messy backyard can be nice too. My rabbits have plenty to snack on. Our lawn looks like crap, but the bunnies love the dandelions that grow on it. And though they're weeds, dandelions look nice.

Cacti are nice. I think the small ones are very cute.

And stinging nettles are very useful. They attract several kinds of butterflies, which is one of the things I like about them. More importantly, you can eat them. Very nutricious and it tastes like spinach. I rarely eat them, but I often dry the leaves and give them to my rabbits. Oh and did you know there is a German company that makes clothes out of stinging nettles?

I like trees, the bigger the better. My neighbourhood used to have a lot of old trees lining the street, mostly beeches. They chopped most of them down though, because were damaging the infrastructure or something. Yeah, like a tree root slightly pushing up the bricks is a problem if you can't go faster than 30km/h anyway... Now Beechstreet no longer has any beeches :( On the other hand, because of the lack of trees, Towerview can actually view the church towers.

We have several smaller trees in our backyard, most notably two prunus serrulata "Amonogawa". No, we did not pick them because of the fancy Japanese name. Both trees were planted at the same time, but the one on the left is much bigger than the one on the right. Could it be becasue we buried some dead pets underneath it?

Other plants I like are.. stinging nettles. It's an interesting and useful plant, even though it's ugly and stings.

Vandal Hearts games have always looked like a swamp of bad taste, but sheesh, it's not as if they can still use the PSone's hardware as an excuse! Come on... making a good Vandal Hearts game can't be that hard. Just take the gameplay from the first one, then make everything look less ugly.

AI allies never work. The ones in Final Fantasy Tactics were a reason I lost battles (AI units that need to survive should not rush the enemy head on and get killed on the counter, okay?) and Fire Emblem was the charge of the light brigade over and over again...

I thought a tree wouldn't be any more off topic than amigurumi, so I thought it would be okay. Sorry.

My tree is too close to the neighbours' property. It would have been okay if it was only two meters high, but my tree is obviously a bit taller than that. It's been there for 12 years now and if the neigbours don't ask us to take it down within 8 years, the tree is free to stay.

Look! My illegal cherry tree is in full bloom! Grow illegal tree, grow! Make your sakura filled branches touch the sky!

Almost finished Persona 4. It was foggy (after several days of rain) this morning and since I was still half asleep when I saw it, I kinda panicked a little -_-'

For some reason I was able to finish the Lovers social link after 11/30. According to FAQs that shouldn't have been possible.

1633  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What game have you logged the most hours in? on: April 06, 2009, 04:19:48 PM
Pokémon Red, if you count PBS battles. If not, Disgaea? I put 120 hours into that one. Terranigma should be close, since I replayed that game way too many times. Ditto for Lufia II.
1634  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Super Game Journal Turbo II - The New Challengers on: April 06, 2009, 10:43:17 AM
More Persona 4. 11/20 and I only have a few social links left to finish. I don't think I'll be able to max lovers, but I don't like Rise so I don't consider it a big loss. There is always next playthrough...

Now I'm working on the final hermit social link request. I really want to catch that guardian today (game time), but I'm not having any luck...

There are dating services and match makers specifically for millionairs, perhaps someone could create a service like that for gamers or geeks in general? Might be profitable if you attract the right people...
