1846  The Rest / General Discussions / Best worst video reviews on: November 22, 2007, 01:52:11 PM
I've watched most of the RPGs reviews and learned this:
1. They like RPG's (this is mentioned a few times)
2. But dialogue is always slow/boring/tedius/excessive (this is mentioned every review)
3. If it's good, it's the greatest thing EVER.
4. SaGa Frontier is not a bad purchase

Okay, the last one was more of a surprise than anything else. They were actually pretty positive about the game and provided actual arguments to support their conclusion. It greatly contrasts the Final Fantasy VII review which basically said: everything sucks, but it's Final Fantasy and it has three discs, go buy it!!

Also recommended: Secret of Evermore review

I like how they say the N64's hardware will be extremely beneficial to the RPG genre.

Well, I was playing some old SNES RPG on my laptop (yeah, ROM= bad, but I'm not going to pay €50 for a game with text I can't even read) and I was halfway through most of them. One day I asked my dad to install Office 97 while I was at school. "No problem" he said. When I came home for school and turned my laptop on, a very clean desktop greeted me. I looked through my folders, well no, I didn't, they were gone. My dad's reaction: "Office 97? I thought you asked me to reinstall Windows 98."

Edit: And no, he didn't install Office 97 after reinstalling Windows 98. I had to do that myself. I had to sacrifice a whole evening to get all my favoriete software back on my laptop.
1851  The Rest / General Discussions / Your favorite glitches, what are they? on: November 09, 2007, 04:28:25 AM
I don't remember exactly what I did in Ogre Tactics: The Knight of Lodis, but I think it involved cloning a zombie angel knight (angel knight died, I resurrected it, I think...) and then snapping the clone to get a Snapdragon sword.

I voted for the L block multiple times as well. Not because I like Tetris that much, but because the character battles have been milked to the bone. Nice to know people agreed with me.

Arc the Lad:Twilight of the Spirits

+Darc's half of the story was pretty damn cool
+Story told from two perspectives
+Environments looked nice

-The other half of the story was a cliché fest (and what kind of name is Kharg anyway? Sounds like the sound my cats makes when she coughing up a hairball...)
-Worst case of Mary Sue-ism EVER
-Had very few strategic elements even though the battlesystem was similar to that of a strategy RPG

Next: Growlanser III
1854  Media / Single-Player RPGs / A practice in objectivity on: November 04, 2007, 07:48:34 AM
Okage: Shadow King

+Story has some good plottwists
+Interesting character and location designs
+Funny dialogues

-Mediocre soundtrack
-Plays like a bad NES RPG
-Crappy camera angles

Next: ... Drakengard? Nobody has mentioned that one yet, right?

Front Mission 3

+Almost endless customisation of wanzers
+The more realistic story is a nice change of pace
+Internet simulation was a good addition to gameplay and story

-At times, luck is more valuable than strategy (activation of skills, you can't always choose which part of the enemy wanzer you want to hit etc)
-The main character whines a lot and will likely annoy the hell out of you (in one Playthrough I named him Shinji and give him a purple wanzer, hah.)
-The story is not something for everyone, some may even call it a political borefest

Next: Terranigma

You can throw all kinds of vegetables in the sauce. I usually add an extra red unions, pepers and whatever I find lying around (even broccoli!).

Tomara, that... Is a good idea! I totally do not eat enough fish. In fact, I might try pushing red meat out of my diet completely and just go for chicken and fish instead... Hmm, the grocer has boatloads of fresh mackerel as we /are/ in a Maritime city. Good idea! :P

It also helps to go vegetarian a few days a week. It's healthy and cheap.

Anyway, the problem is that most people have a common conception that fat = unhealthy. This is not always true.

+1.  Your brain needs certain lipids (fats) in order to function properly, if I'm not mistaken.

You're thinking of Omega-3 fatty acid, right? Yep, this stuff helps you concentrate. It can be found in fish such as salmon and mackeral, these fish contain a lot of 'good' fat, so it's a good idea to eat fish every week.

Fat is also an energy source and in cold areas it's essential if you want to stay warm.

-What MP3 player do you have (brand and model)?
A Xen from Xaiox (like this one but an older model)

-How long have you had your MP3 player?
5 years or so.

-How much memory does your MP3 player hold?

-How much did your MP3 player cost you to purchase?

-How often does your MP3 player malfunction (e.g., freeze up, lose memory)?
Never. I use it daily, but the only thing that doesn't work anymore is the pretty blue backlight.

-Does your MP3 player use an internal rechargeable battery?
Nope, I use two external rechargeable batteries.

-If your MP3 player has an internal rechargeable battery, how long does it last you? How long is it SUPPOSED to last you?

-What kind of mechanical user interface (scroll wheel, arrow buttons, touch pad, etc.) does your MP3 player use for you to make your selections?
It has a tiny stick you can move up, down, right and left. Push it and the music pauzes/plays, push it twice and the device shuts off.

-What software does your MP3 player use to support it, and how well does it work (e.g., iTunes, Windows Media Player, Creative Organizer, etc.)
It came with it's own software (but supports others such as WMP as well), but I never use it because I rarely add/remove songs.

-What special functions does your MP3 player have, that are unique to its model or brand, if any?
High quality voice recording

-When you bought your MP3 player, what helped you decide which one to purchase; what criteria did you use, if any, to make your judgment?
It was my brother's MP3 player first, he bought it and used it for a few years, until he got a new mobile phone and later on an Ipod. He chose this Xen because the sound quality is excellent and because the casing alluminium casing is very sturdy. This MP3-player is just about the only music-player that has survived my brother's use.
