I love Rhapsody! One of the reasons I got a PSone actually.

I can't think of any favourites I'm ashamed of liking. There is nothing wrong with liking a bad game for the right reasons. Some are terrible in a way that's just so funny you want to keep playing. Nothing wrong with having a good laugh, right? And honestly, most games so atleast something right. If you enjoy that part so much you're able to ignore the flaws and enjoy the game, well, good for you. Just don't go all raving an ranting about how reviewers know nothing and your opinion is fact. That's annoying.

So I will now proudly announce that I like Final Fantasy Mystic Quest / Mystic Quest Legend. The back to basics approach is something I can appreciate having played it back when I was so young I could barely read any English. Also, killer soundtrack.

What else? I had a ton of fun with the first two Ar Tonelicos. Yeah, could have toned down the awkward fanservice a lot, but hey everything else was pretty awesome.

Oh, and I enjoyed Suikoden IV. It was a bit of disappointment after II and III, but on the other hand: nice boats.

You could lift three times that weight, which is maybe even scarier :(

As a fellow short girl I have to say: staying under 120lbs is my goal as well*. Weight twinsies! :D

(Not just because of health reason, though that's a big part of it. I've been the same weight for nearly ten years now, so I have lots of clothes that still fit perfectly fine, meaning I don't have to buy anything new unless I spot something I like. Having to buy a whole new wardrobe would be a really expensive side effect of weight gain.)

Nah, you just want a complete package. Nothing wrong with considering all aspects (including flowing visors). The people who go straight for the murderous yanderes are the crazy ones :D

I'm just gonna say:  I hate group projects.  Do they get better in a work environment or do people generally remain unbalanced in what they can contribute?

Group projects make me want to throw stuff at people. Like, when they've been corrected a dozen times and they still do it wrong, making your workload heavier because they can't be bothered to do it right? Yeah, makes me want to get rid of my old cups and plates.

Lots of Yuri fans here. Well, he's attractive in more ways than one, so that makes sense. But whenever I look at him I just see my friend's boyfriend. That's just awkward.

Besides, Raven is hotter anyway!

Yeah, I know, way too many issues, but he still has lots of things going for him. He's great with kids and a good cook who's considerate enough to make you your favourites even if he himself isn't a fan. And despite the whole looking at pretty girls thing he's a loyal guy. Wait, that may be a problem as well...

Competing with the memories of a woman who's be dead for ten years can't be easy
37  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The official waifu thread on: April 02, 2014, 05:07:15 PM
Yeah, pick one! It's fun. Pick half a dozen while you're at it. If I understood anime correctly, no person should be without a well-balanced harem of unbalanced personalities :D

BTW I just thought of a perfectly good husbando: Katsuya from Persona 2. See, I can make good choices.

If I was gay, I would totally hit Godot..

Visor on or off?
I'm picturing sex with visor on and glowing.

And I like it.

Is it weird that I'm wondering what kind of effect that coffee addiction is going to have? I mean, would you have to wait for him or the other way around?
39  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The official waifu thread on: April 02, 2014, 04:30:38 PM
That makes me want to play Pokémon <_<

I'd pick a husbando, but my taste in fictional men is absolutely horrible (half of 'em are backstabbers, but they're sad backstabbers and that makes me want to hug them and bake them cookies) and Muppy is already taken, so... yeah.

EDIT: Also relevant, I just lost my grandmother who was only 61. She smoked, despite having lung problems like COPD. She was too young to go, and she had nothing but regrets at the end over it.

My dad is approaching that age as well and honestly, I'd be surprised if he reached 70. No COPD, but he does have a bunch of heart problems and since he hurt his leg last year (the bone won't heal because he's so unhealthy) he moves around even less. Rarely leaves the house. I have yelled, begged, cried and encouraged, but he won't change. It sucks, because my dad used to be pretty badass. Now you could just replace him with a big rock and no one would notice. No wait, we would, because rocks don't yell or complain.

Mom won't quit smoking either. She did promise she'd only do it in the garage after painting the living room lovely light colours, but that didn't even last a day. You know, back when I still lived at home, my Wii was yellow.

Worst part is, they actually have some pretty good examples of how wrong things can go. My aunt, one of dad's elder sisters, also died at a fairly young age. Basically ate herself to death.

I'm fine with people living the way they want to live, but there is nothing great about being unhealthy all your adult life. Those people aren't happy because they eat as much as they want, they're miserable because they are struggling with diabetes to the point of losing feet or eyesight. Because it feels like they're having a heartattack whenever they go up the stairs. Because they can't keep up with the kids let alone grandchildren. They hate either themselves for it or the world for turning them into what they are. Or maybe they'll just hate everyone and everything and become isolated from society. That happens too.

Anyway, not saying people should just drop everything that unhealthy, because there is no need for that. Moderation is an awesome thing.

Unlike KH3 where any idiot could see the "gameplay" bits were just empty shells slapped together quickly for the sake of a trailer.

Oh yeah, they had this trailer with the running up buildings, right? Camera looked too cinematic and actions too well timed to be real.

such jaded.

                                                            much cynicism.


Hehe, I remember getting really excited over Final Fantasy VIII, but quickly found out the games are bound to be disappointments if I kept that up. If I have no or low expectation, I can't be disappointed, can I? So really, I'm doing Squeenix a favor by acting like a pissed off granny :D

Except that I slipped into Dutch for a second. 'Miljoen'? Seriously, Tomara? Dutch isn't even that suitable for angry rants...

I remember there was an interview after Type-0 came out where they admitted they didn't really start working on it until two years after the first trailer.  It was just a vague concept up until that point.  It's not really clear what the situation with XV was when it was first announced, but I wouldn't be surprised if it was similar...

XV is now basically announced-but-never-actually-made Final Fantasy XIII Versus-stuff with a different title, so I suppose they're a little further along than usual. There was some actual gameplay in the latest trailers. Of course, this doesn't mean the game is anywhere near complete, but atleast they seem to have passed the 'here's some fancy smancy FMV, we'll attach and actual game to it someday' phase.

Which isn't actually all that hard when the skeleton of the game has been development hell for 5+ years <_<

BD was gonna make decent sales in Japan because the game was made for that territory in mind. The success of BD in the West was something SQEX Japan never saw coming, and decided not publish the game by themselves. I guess they underestimated the market for that kind of game over here.

I wonder if they never take notice of what other publishers are doing. There are multiple smaller publishers who survive by releasing niche Japanese stuff and do just fine. They don't have to worry when one of their games doesn't sell 5 million copies, nope, when a title sells 200.000 copies the first month they celebrate with cake. And heck, Nintendo (well, mostly Nintendo of Europe) is pretending it's the 90s all over again and releasing third party JRPG's.

Oh well, I guess whatever money they're making isn't good enough for Squeenix.

As for KH3 and FFXV, wake me up when those are out. There is no way I'm boarding that hype train.

Why can't Squeenix be like smaller publishers that are all like: hey, we're making this game and we're almost done. It'll be out in three months. Here's some screenshots and a trailer of two. Thanks for listening!

Oh, yeah, wait. It's because they pour millions and millions and millions into their projects. If they don't start shoving it in our faces now, we won't start believing this is something amazing we should be looking forward to for years. If we don't believe, we won't pre-order and if we don't pre-order, there won't be x miljoen sold the first month and the company will enter financial crisis mode and start pooping out unneeded sequels.

Vent frustration on the forums of some small green site about RPGs.

It's because of how equipment progresses. There are different ranks and the next one is often 50-100% stronger than the last.

Some tips:
-Some houses have some really nice epic or even legendary equipment. Raid them.
-Always check stats before you equip. Some items of the same type may have different stats
-Don't neglect charms. They don't provide any real defence, but can protect you somewhat against certain attack types
-Weapons such as spears and certain staffs offer some nice ranged attacks. See if you can build a decent combo out of those (until you have some better armour).
-Dodge. Dodge. Dodge.

-Just switch the game to casual. One of the lantern thingies near to shop in Metallia's swamp lets you do that. Because honestly, this game isn't worth the frustration.
