I can hit some really high notes. A music teacher said I could probably break glass if I wanted to. I've never tried it, but maybe I should...

In any case, I put your avarage Japanese voice actress to shame.
1982  Media / Single-Player RPGs / What dead series(or mostly dead) do you miss the most? on: July 22, 2008, 04:00:40 AM
Not really a series, but I miss Quintet... Maybe Terranigma was just a fluke, but all their other 2D games were above avarage.

Nippon Ichi needs to leave their underworlds alone for a while and focus on cute girly RPG's again. I want more than a Rhapsody port, I want an English version of Little Princess and a new game if possible.

The worlds needs more Lunar, but that's obvious.

Another hardcore Breath of Fire game would be great. I love Dragon Quarter.
1983  The Rest / General Discussions / The sports thread on: July 21, 2008, 09:55:26 AM
I hate watching sports, but for some reason I love reading Eyeshield 21, a manga about American football...

Back in high school I was always the kid with the poor motor skills, so I dislike most sports. However, I am pretty good at dodgeball, mostly because the fear of being hit by a ball gives me superhuman dodging skills. Oh and I'm not all that at bad archery, I just never got around to buying my own bow...
1984  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Vay was just remade and released. on: July 19, 2008, 04:21:28 AM
The new sprites look weird and otu of place, as if some photoshopped the screenshots.
1985  Media / Single-Player RPGs / RPGs you're embarassed to own. on: July 18, 2008, 02:01:17 PM
That game sounds awesome! If I had to choose between that and a recent random generic RPG, I'd pick that.
1986  Media / Single-Player RPGs / RPGs you're embarassed to own. on: July 18, 2008, 06:53:22 AM
Embarassed about a RPG I own? Nope. They're just part of a collection, the crappy ones too. If I have anything to be embarassed about it's my fangirl behaviour that pops up one in a while. Last time I got it bad was Xenosaga...
1987  Media / Single-Player RPGs / RPGs as coming of age on: July 18, 2008, 06:49:28 AM
My first favourite was Terranigma (SNES), one of those great RPG's that will likely never get a port or remake... I must have been 10 or 11 when I played that game for the first time.

The Lunar games for the PSone come in second place. I just turned 14 when I bought my first modded PSone so I could play Lunar and Rhapsody. I don't know if I should call that cute, hardcore and/or insane...

Sewers are another dungeon that's rarely been fun.

The sewer in Lunar 2 was filed with bunnygirls... after you cleared it...
1989  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Luminous Arc 2 announced for US on: July 12, 2008, 03:43:50 AM
Even if it wasn't anything special, it was enjoyable enough. I liked that you could finish the game within 20 hours, it wasn't unnecessarily drawn-out like many other RPGs. If Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy is a meal, Luminous Arc is a snack. Everyone wants a snack once in a while, right?

Long final dungeons don't bother me as logn as there are enough save points. It is what comes after: long final boss fights and long endings.

Usually it goes like this:

0:00 Equipmentcheck and final bathroombreak

0:05 You make your way to the boss' room

0:20 The final boss is finally done with taunting, explaining his master plan etc. The heroes throw in a speech or five to lengthen the conversation even more

0:25 The final fight finally begins

0:30 First form beaten

0:50 Second form beaten and it's conversation/event time! More taunting, more explaining, more speeches and perhaps some flashy stuff.

1:00 The final form fight finally begins!

1:30 The final form fight finally ends and it's conversation time again!

1:40 The hero now gets to take on the final final form by himself, while his friends cheer for him/sacrifice themselves to make the final final fight possible.

2:00 Finally, it's time for the ending! And oh boy, it's a long ending!

2:15 The ending is still going strong and there is no pauze-button. You're starting to long for the bathroom.

2:25 The ending finally ends! Oh no wait, it was a false end of an ending!

2:30 The words "Fin" finally appear. You rush to the bathroom and swear you'll never ever drink anything again during the final stretch of a RPG.
1991  The Rest / General Discussions / Cannabalistic Thug Holds Jesus at Gunpoint on: July 10, 2008, 02:20:50 AM
I wonder what they do two the kids who can't hold that stuff down and barf it right back up again...
1992  Media / Single-Player RPGs / RPGs Only You've Played. on: July 10, 2008, 01:58:05 AM
-Sword of Hope (GB), found it at a pawn shop and all the text was in German. The first half of the game was fun, after that poor design pretty much ruined it, but I finished it anyway.

-Tenshi no Uta (Super Famicom), it was short and fun and looked kinda nice.

-Kouryu Densetsu Villgust (Super Famicom), I have no idea why I saw this game through to the end

The square button brings up the map. I can't recall any dungeons where the map was not available.
1994  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Stupid RPG conventions/cliches you can't get past. on: July 09, 2008, 12:31:36 PM
Press the square button?

And as far as teleports go, Nocturne wasn't the worst offender. Sword of Hope: First person perspective, invisible teleports, countless rooms that look exactly the same and no map.

Grampa Wil from SaGa Frontier 2 was quite badass. I never took him with me to the final boss, but he did stay behind to fight a boss on his own to buy the others some time.
