1  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Grandia III Spoof - "Drak Is Grumpy" on: March 14, 2011, 05:49:18 PM
Grandia III Spoof - "Drak Is Grumpy"

Remember that scene in which you talk to Drak, and his advice is pretty much nigh-on worthless? Or perhaps, I should ask if anyone even played Grandia III at all?

Well, this's my own spoof of that scene! (P.S. I go by "Dei Lahaan," my hippie name, on YouTube; kind of plugging my channel while I'm at it).

The humor's full of cuss language, and it's pretty juvenile at that, I admit it, but quite frankly, I was in stitches laughing, after observing the fruits of my own labour.

This is my very first attempt at video editing and voice acting, so it's a pretty raw, rough cut - the voice acting is dopey - I intended it to sound that way.

Also, this was digitized from a VHS recording. Yes, I know, VHS in this day...

At some point, I'll probably end up re-doing this, when I've better equipment and software, but for now, this will just have to do.

I got the idea to do this spoof from this frame right here:



See how completely bored and disinterested Drak looks, in regards to what you have to say?

At first, I was just going to go with one joke: The part where Drak begins questioning the legitimacy of his OWN advice, but it snowballed into the other lines I added, before and after that point.

Have a look, a watch, a listen, let me know what you think!

3  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Cheat Codes / Cheat Devices for Nintendo Wii on: February 10, 2011, 04:53:19 PM
Well, I had both the Gameshark and Action Replay for the PS2 back in the day, so I'm wondering:

Aren't there any cheat codes or cheat devices for the Nintendo Wii, like there were for the PS2?

Y'see, I'm beating myself over the head, trying to slog through this tedious Wii JRPG called Arc Rise Fantasia.

I don't really care for the battle system, and the game doesn't look like it's going to be ultimately rewarding enough for me to make the time investment of all the level-building I'll have to do...

Granted, I'm about...30 hours in already?! Okay, yeah, I'd rather not spend...90 hours, or whatever it will end up being, just to finish this one damn game...

...and I can imagine there're be other Wii games I'll want to hack, as well.

Any help? At all? Please?

The points they "Overlooked" in the review were things you were already supposed to know. n00b.

I was already supposed to know it's 75% dating sim 25% combat and the combat is incredibly simple relative to other SRPGs?

Those are pretty important facts to be ignoring or misstating.
DUDE. FIFTH FUCKIGN GAME IN THE SERIES. IT'S A SERIES THAT'S BEEN AROUND FOR A LONG TIME.

Even I know about the series, and I'm hardly a guru on the subject.

Now, take your ignorant self, and get a clue. Literally. People who know nothing should just listen to what others have to say, and LEARN something.

Wow whee, in other words, an SRPG I might be able to play WITHOUT getting annoyed with...

The way I've always looked at it, you're playing the Sakura Taisen games more for the plot, characters, comedy and dating sim; there's plenty of other damn SRPGs in the world if you want a serious, balls-to-the-wall SRPG; not enough dating sims, at least, (1) not decent ones, or (2) released in the U.S.

I decided to actually pick this game up, since so many people here were talking it up; pretty sure I'll enjoyed it, but I haven't had time to slip it into the disc slot just yet.

I'm not trying to discuss whether it's enjoyable or not, just pointing out facts that the review looks over.

Did you find the game at an affordable price?  mine cane from amazon at a heavy 50$.
Yes. $30 (U.S.) from Amazon.com, free shipping. Where, or how, pray tell, did you get your copy?

None of these games are overly difficult, and unlike most strategy/RPGs they actually have proper towns and exploration elements, as opposed to being a long series of endless battles broken up by cutscenes.
Oh yeah, and that's exactly why I liked Rhapsody on the PSX, putting aside the embarrassing musical numbers, of course!

SRPGs, huh? Damn, I hate SRPGs...not that you didn't know that already...

FFT, I quit about 3 story battles into the second chapter; I just couldn't rescue Mustadio before he got killed, and I played that game back in 2000~2001; before I'd gotten acquainted with Gameshark. Can't even remember how long I struggled through the game just to finish the first chapter, either...wasn't even playing very many other games at that time, either...I rathered play no game than play FFT.

Honestly, the only SRPG I've ever played through the whole thing without Gameshark was Disgaea; and that's because it was relatively easy; they were pretty generous at affording you opportunities for a character to skip 10 levels with one kill...on a CURRENT battlefield, along with your character's stats being CURRENT, or where they should be at that point in the game.

Are there any SRPGs you'd recommend for gameplay, to one who doesn't really care for SRPGs at all? Many SRPGs, I just Gameshark to check out the setting, plot, characters, music, etc., but once, I'd actually like there to be an SRPG I actually ENJOYED playing.

You could say Grim Grimoire, but that's actually more an RTS, and it didn't involve level-building, either. Also, short game, relatively easy. Finished it in 3 consecutive days. Damn, I love RTSes...

Anyone else watch the trailer?  Impressed by the environment , but slightly cringing at the character models?
The character models seem very FFX-ish; the tambourines in the music make me think Shimomura (Legend of Mana).

Definitely looking forward to this and Last Story. Especially the music. Hopefully, both'll get officially released soundtracks.

Also, Dickson. Tee-hee!
12  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: God Knows How Accurate...But this makes me HAAPPY (VP & BoF) on: April 14, 2010, 11:52:04 AM
Yeah, when the crap are we going to get a BoF sequel, if ever? BoF V was back in...2001/2002, was it?

I guess they really lost people with that last installment, what few people they had, eh? Not that the BoF series was a big seller anyway, right, much less did they print a whole lot of copies, did they?

Were BoF III and BoF IV ever released on PSN? Wasn't BoF III released on PSP? I really don't have my facts up to date...

A lot of games, back in the day, left me feeling pretty contented; Grandia II, as far as I was concerned, could've been the last Grandia, and I would've been happy. Final Fantasy X could've been the last FF, and I would've been happy.

BoF V, I enjoyed more than all get-out (I mean, I REPLAYED it 3 times! In a ROW! I went for 100% on that bugger!), but I could still stand to see what else Capcom can come up with!

And VP, is that on PSN, too? I swear, one of these days, I'm going to get a PSP, if only for a lot of those classic PSX titles that're available now...wankers need to release Threads of Fate and Chocobo's Dungeon, while they're at it! The SaGa Frontier games wouldn't be bad, either!
13  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Radiata Stories on: April 02, 2010, 12:32:55 AM
Anyway if i remember correctly, there is no extra stuff with the optional characters, just a story to get them or things like that, i DO know that yo get some characters is necessary to have some others related to them... not 100% sure, its been a while since i played
Okay. I just wanted to know if getting any of the optional characters opened up any side stories or side quests...but it doesn't sound like that's the case.

Otherwise, I only have 2 gripes about the game:

1) Save Points are scarce; the only real save point in the game is at Jack's House, or wherever your headquarters are.

2) Needing an item (The Flee Ball) in order to escape from battle; having no choice but to get your ass kicked when you run out of those things is just stupid...

...

Honestly, the fact that all of the townspeople that you can fight, are stronger than ANY of the monsters outside of town, is DEFINITELY part of the humour of the game; it's kind of like, if THEY'RE so strong, why don't THEY go save the world?! Well, most of them ARE recruitable anyway...

about raki.... its possible to beat her once or twice normally but after you are gonna need those bombs that do like 9999 damage or was it 999?
They would have to do 9999 damage; at that point in the game, 999 isn't squat.

I used Eco Weapons, Selfish Cannons, and Hell Fry; the first two are available at Cynthia's shop in Pastalia, and 3rd, at the Bonbertan Restaurant in Rakshek. Rakshek is such a funny name...

I don't believe there's a "bad-bad" ending.
Its probably not so much a "Bad End" as its a "JAPAN!!! End" which is essentially the same thing at this point.
What the hell is a "JAPAN!!! End?"

An ending that consists of something that would cause you to shout "Dammit Japan!" like putting an underaged character into a highly sexual situation. I would think that to be obvious to someone who's played through most of AT2 by now.
Talking about the Cocona ending, eh? They say she's only 11 or so, but I can't help seeing her as being 13, maybe 14.

I thought you meant along the lines of those anime, in which you start out in a fantastical world, but near the end, somehow, you get magically transported to Japan (e.g., Drakengard, or Eureka Seven).

I love these games...the focus on stupid anime-themes really starts to get old, predictable, and in the way of everything else the game should focus on that's more interesting.
Ehh, I still don't think they really loaded it up with innuendo; more innuendo than Ar-T1, maybe, but the Ar-T series has always given me the impression of a desperate world hanging by a thread...and somehow, they're actually able to throw in humourous bits here-and-there. I mean, sure, there's bath-and-towel scenes, but nothing too explicit, unless you really have a dirty mind...not to say anything disparaging of anyone here, mind you!

I suppose, even in a REAL post-apocalyptic background, I'm sure SOME people would still be able to maintain a sense of humour...
