It might still be Shiida, since that's the translation used in Smash. Besides, "Caeda" was on the European website too before they changed it to Shiida.

The gameplay is very solid, but the story is stuck in the early nineties. Not that you need to follow to story to enjoy the game, you can skip every scene with the start button. Some elitist Fire Emblem fans think some of the changes ruined the game, but they're overreacting like fanboys like to do. The class swap system brings depth to the game without unbalancing the gameplay. The bonus chapters require a mentality change, but they're completely optional.

You need to let characters die if you want to get to the bonus chapters. I got to all the bonus chapters once, but it felt horrible. I was putting unarmed characters right next to the boss to reach Death's quotum. I killed all the characters from the bonus chapters as well. Except for Etzel. I just couldn't bring myself to kill him. *has a thing for sexy mages*

NM can be completed with just about any team. I know some people have finished it with just facelss replacements and Marth.

Jagen isn't worth holding on to... because he's Jagen... A whole set of useless characters was named after him, so don't expect anything from him. Draug is okay, very speedy for a knight, but he doesn't gain much def. His whole def growth comes grom is class. If you want a good general, try Sedgar or Wolf.

You lost Cain, Abel and Frey? They're some of the better characters :(

BTW, even if you're a vegan, unless you're strictly adhering to an organic diet, don't they, uh... isn't everything fortified with cyanocobalamin?

Not everything. Plus, vegans are often fond of homegrown vegetables and the like. Fortified meat replacement products are a good way to get some extra vitamins, calcium etc, yet are frowned upon by strict vegans, because those aren't natural products.

Ah well, their loss.

Proteins aren't that hard to come by. Getting enough vitamin B12 is harder. Many vegans and vegetarians wrongly assume you can get it from plants. While it's true B12 can be found in some plants, humans can't actually absorb the B12 from plants. B12 deficiency is pretty common among vegetarians/vegans.

"So as there is less of a demand for foods like fish, there is more of a demand for other foods, and jobs open up in those industries," Byrne says.

Yeah, like meat.

Unless people are already vegetarians for one reason or another, the avarage meal looks like this: potato/pasta/rice - vegetables - meat/fish.

Seakittens are not going to change that.

Besides, rabbits are cute and people still eat them. If bunny-power doesn't protect you from hungry humans, nothing will.

i don't have any specific game recommendations but I do suggest you find the most colorful RPG you can think of and play that, and try to avoid the dreary, depressing ones, and i'm pretty sure you've already played them all because nobody likes making colorful games anymore.

Magic Pengel: The Quest for Color! It lets you draw your own monsters :D
1989  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Entire Life Completed RPG List on: January 12, 2009, 04:33:29 PM
Don't we on staff frown upon list threads?

Not "frown upon" as much as "think they're really fucking pointless".  It's a good way to see who has themselves a case of RPG Asperger's, though. :P

Well, yeah.

The list helped make my case "obvious". The RPG's thing and the fact that I actually kept a list... ^_^'
1990  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Down in the dumps, and need a good new RPG... on: January 12, 2009, 03:35:10 PM
If you like the first Arc game, you're going to like the second one even more. The first game is rather short, but the second game is huge and has plenty of optional content.

The Saga games are an aquired taste. Saga Frontier II is pretty close to more conventional RPG's, but still has some interesting innovations and original ideas. First of all there are two main storyline which both span multiple generations. Like Suikoden it has normal turn-based battles as well as duels and strategic battles. There is plenty of room to customize your party and the towns and dungeons offer a lot of variation.

Romancing Saga is good too, but the non-linearity can be very overwhelming.
1991  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Entire Life Completed RPG List on: January 12, 2009, 02:56:20 PM
I'm working my way through Life right now.  Sadly, I don't think I'll get any replay value out of it, but to say that there are thousands of hours of playtime for most characters is an understatement.  Of course, I'll finish it someday, but I'm not giving away the ending. :D

Some people say there is an optional dungeon available after you complete it. I heard the design depends on the choices you made during the game.
1992  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPG's that are easy to get into. on: January 12, 2009, 12:57:37 PM
I'd say Trace Memory (not a RPG) or Chrono Trigger. Trace Memory is a short and interesting adventure with puzzles that involve the DS's technology in one way or another. Chrono Trigger is just stuffed with everything that's (potentially) awesome; time travel, mechanical dragons, frog knights, floating islands...
1993  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Make your own stupid jRPG abbreviation on: January 12, 2009, 10:47:31 AM
It's always weird to see Skies of Arcadia abbreviated to SoA on Dutch forums, because SOA is the Dutch abbreviation for "sexueel overdraagbare aandoening", known in English as STD.

Interactive Dual Intelligent Overturn Tactics - just in case the Tales series gets its own SRPG installment in which part of the strategic battles are fought as duals. You know, you engage the enemy on the strategic map, then switch to a LMBS battle.

... I can actually see that happening.
1994  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Down in the dumps, and need a good new RPG... on: January 12, 2009, 09:09:33 AM
Why not instead of buying a new game, go on a trip down memory lane? Replay something you liked a lot, but haven't played in years. A feel-good game like Lunar or Grandia.

Or, since your taste seems to go against the flow... how about a SaGa game? SaGa Frontier II or Romancing Saga. Romancing Saga has a have focus on exploration, but the non-linearity is a turn off for many people. SaGa Frontier II is more linear and has a storyline spanning several generations.

So, uhm, yeah...

I played my first RPG in 1994, I think. Up to 2000 it all went kind of slow, because of me living in Europe and the lack of internet all over the world. Then in the first week of Januari 2001 I got my chipped PSone and things went downhill fast. 

Oh, in case anyone wondered: I've kept I list of completed RPG's since 2001. Mostly because I like making lists.
