1981  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: A place to decide the most popular RPG. on: August 01, 2011, 03:47:38 PM
Yeah, it's ridiculous L block won. Z block is way cooler since it's all twisted, same goes for its twin S block. Don't you love those edgy characters? Straight it just overcompensating though. It's funny once, but then you just hate having to depend on that one. And Square is just boring and predictable. Now T block, that one is underrated. I love how it always finds a way to fix whatever mess the other blocks get into.

Sorry, that hasn't been funny since the first Tetris fanfic was written but I just had to get it out. Totally serious about the T block though. T blocks rock.

I'm... not good with needles. I have very few fears. One of them is needles.

Don't worry, you'll get used to needles quick enough if they decide to poke you with one every month or so!

...

Though you should probably be worried if it ever gets to that point :P

Tomara, I totally understand your gripe. I'd be pissed, too.

Thanks. It's good to know I'm not the only one who feels that way.

So no terrifying butt disease. It's just some minor fissures created during movements. I also got some blood drawn. I didn't cry this time.

Aw, did you have to take your little jacket off too little boy? :P

I can't believe I'm still worked up over that nurse. Next time I see her, maybe I should make her cry. I just need to remind myself to do it before she sticks a needle into my arm, her aim was off as it is...

Ugh, I hate hospitals. The nurse was all like 'take off your little coat*' and 'think happy little thoughts'. It's a little hard to convey in English, but she talked to me like I was a 5-year-old. I hate it when they do that. I told her so too, but she ignored me.

*which would be 'jas' in Dutch. We attach a 'je'-at the end to make it sound cuter or indicate that the object is much smaller than usual. Up until a kid is like 6-7 years old, pretty everything he/she owns or does is -je. They wear a 'jasje' instead of a 'jas', they eat a 'boterhammetje' instead of a 'boterham' (sandwich) and so on. Talk like that to an adult and you deserve to be punched in the face for being a condescending twat.
1985  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Breath of Fire IV - August 16th on PSN! on: July 31, 2011, 02:05:06 PM
It's a pretty good game with a memorable (playable!) antagonist, a pretty advanced battlesystem (swap teammembers mid-battle, use combine attacks to create new moves and increase your damage output!) and neat little sprites. If you're new to Breath of Fire, you might as well start with this one. Or maybe Breath of Fire III, that one is good too. The earlier games feel very dated and Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter, while a really awesome game, scares off a lot of people with its unique and challenging gameplay.

What am I saying? Everyone should play Dragon Quarter! It's a gritty reboot that actually worked, it dares to be different and does it well, and it's perfect for anyone on a diet of MegaTen, Demon's Souls and Nier (which is like, 95% of the people who post on these forums?)!

Oh, but this thread is about the fourth game isn't? Yeah, that one is good too, in a more traditional kind of way.

You never now... Maybe they'll use the PC version, convert it back to a PSone game and release that on PSN? :P

If the whole (internet) conversation is about some other M.J., sure. Writing the full name becomes a bit of a drag after a while.

SF2 does get super hard towards the end, but the beginning is a cakewalk.

The Battle of South Moundtop, the horror... the horror...!

Funny how the hardest part of the game is a SRPG and thus totally irrelevant to this thread.

One of my brother's classmates has a mother like that. He had some allergies (nothing deadly, just stuff like mild hayfever) and that made his mother extremely overprotective, which in turn turned him into a annoying, egocentric kid nobody wanted to hang out with.

Still annopys me that it takes her this long to care or notice.

Want to borrow my mum for a while? Her reaction to pretty much everything:

"It's the weather. It happens to everyone around this time of the year."

Spent the whole night puking your guts out with a crazy high fever?

It's the weather.

Still tired despite having slept 12-14 hours a night for a whole month?

It's the time of year.

Nearly drowned in the swimming pool because some asshole kid pushed you under and you seem to have lost half an hour of your memory?

It happens to everyone.

I know she says things like this because she cares and doesn't want us to worry (she used to be a nurse) and sure, it's not like most things are all that serious (just bothersome), but it would be nice if she would just acknowlegde how we feel...

On the upside, atleast we didn't grow up to be sissy hypochondriacs.

On the other hand, we never put our health first. For some reason work feels more important than being able to walk in a straight line. I need to make a new appointment, because people are starting to stare at me whenever I go grocery shopping...

I feel sorry for you :( Chocospread is awesome. On the other hand, having more brands might unleash a national health crisis upon the US of A. Or something. Maybe.

Anyway... wiriting a preview for a game you've already played is surprisingly difficult. And ironic, if the game you're previewing is Tales of the Abyss. I already know what the game is like. I know exactly what's going to happen. Give me half an hour with the 3DS game and I'd probably be qualified to turn the preview into a review...

So... do you guys only buy Nutella or are there other choco spreads available as well? Like Duo Pennotti?

And here I was thinking that little warning system from MegaTen was old as hell and that Etrian Odyssey was a game designed with nostalgia in mind. All the little counter in the corner of the screen does is warn you the odds of getting ambushed are getting higher and higher. It's random, but the odds are different at different times. As for having some control over those odds for a limited time, that's pretty much a neccesity if you want to keep the game enjoyable. Players should have a way to not encounter weak monsters or improve the odds of getting out of a dungeon alive.

Have you played any of the Etrian Odyssey games? Going into the labyrinth and discovering you're out of warp wires when you're all worn out is enough to put you on the edge of your seat. Or how about when you defeat a boss and are allowed to enter a new stratum. Will you risk it all and look for that warp pillar or will you use a warp wire and save before going to the next floor? Or maybe you'll rest first and... nevermind, you were murdered by butterflies!

Challenge shouldn't be random though. I prefer a game that gives a fair warning and methods to avoid those encounters.
