I'm not trolling or anything, and even so Final Finatasy is one of my favorites franchises the only feeling I have for FFIX is disappointment.
I don't like any of the characters and I hate Quina. I didn't like the music, the locations, the fact everyone looks like a dwarf, the plot.
To be fair, I found the skill system interesting, the FMVs were great and the ending song was good.

I've tried playing it a second time on different occasions just to see if I might change my mind about it but yet it didn't do a thing.

Your not the only one who feels that way... I am an Final Fantasy-freak, having played through almost every one (including spin-offs) to arrive stateside at least once (no Dirge of Cerb though, I hate anything that even feels like a shooter...).... iX to me just lacked something crucial in the cast and plot that left me totally unimpressed..... I must say, while Amano's illustrative work for this title is some of my favorite that is where my affinity for this one ended... And the song was the only good thing about the ending IMO

can you all recommend and anime for a newbie? I grew up w/ shit like robotech, fist of the northstar, records of the lodoss war (some of it)....
I don't like the "dragonball" type shit. Persona-style has always intrigued the fuck out of me but I don't want to watch an anime of that until I actually finish one of them.

It'd help if you recommend one available on hulu or netflix

I recommend "Berserk!" (Fantasy, mature), "Outlaw Star"(sci fi, not so mature, great soundtrack, entertaining), "El Hazard" (sci-fantasy, not so mature, very entertaining),"Serial Experiment Lain" (sci-fii, no real action, psychological, mature in a non-blood-and guts way, highly recommended), "Escaflowne" (fantasy with some sci elements, great action and story, nothing too mind boggling or hard to follow) "Baccano!" (for something newer and very unique, lets just call this one a mix action and good story telling set in the early 1900's) "3x3 Eyes"(fantasy supernatural, mature) "Death Note" (sort of psychological, sort of supernatural, decent production value, well regarded... personally I loved it) "Mushishi" (great episodic supernatural and slightly psychological, no action)

I think if you look into the aforementioned you'll find something to tickle your fancy and shoot you off in some direction...

NOTE: None of those suggestion include ANY Dragon Ball type stuff.... Most of it is of the 90's era, close to, or remniscent of (except for Baccano and Death Note).... Oh, and none of those suggestion include any of your Samurai, Martial Arts type stuff (I usually don't dig those too much myself), but if you do I totally second the Samurai X suggestion given by Akanbe (just make sure you go for Trust and Betrayal as alot of the Sam X stuff is very different...)

What's the FF6 keychain you got?

Ahhh Dice! Truly fine tastes you have my dear..... Had I been looking at this post, that would have been the first thing to caught my eye as well :)..... Anyhow I have nearly the whole cast but I just can't bring myself to part with them..... I love em way too much as FF6 stuff is pretty hard to come by....

So I've narrowed down the bonus FF6 keychain to Setzer, Celes (Opera apparel), Strago and Umaro....... The others I simply can't breathe without... simple as that I'm afraid.
1414  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: January 23, 2012, 03:08:24 PM
Says the fella who played star ocean and xenoblade?

Admittedly Star Ocean barely qualifies as sci-fi at all while Xenoblade is... in some ways it comes off more as sci-fi flavored fantasy, in contrast to fantasy flavored sci-fi you might see in, say, Dying Earth works. Still, you definitely shouldn't rule out genres if the work sounds interesting enough to you.

That about sums up why I enjoyed both Star Ocean and Xenoblade..... but don't get me wrong, I am not defending my stance or position on the matter.... I am bias and rule things out I probably shouldn't based on the fact that A) I tend to have a pretty good idea of what I like and what I dont as far as RPG's and games are concerned and B) There are way too many "I can't wait to play" titles sitting on my shelf to entertain any more "possiblies".

But like I said once again, I am not defending what I said.... it was accurate and it stands... however nothing in life is black and white... certainly not our tastes and affinities which change and shift all the time..... that being said its silly to think when someone says they like or dislike something, that exceptions don't exist which you can split hairs over.... Particularly when it comes to such subjective matters as to what qualities qualify a title for a genre....

That being said I will re-phrase and expand on my statement..... With the exception of Xenoblade (and the Xeno-series), Star Ocean and a few other select titles (loved X-Com as well...) I pretty much can't stand giant robots unless they are sentient and relatively creepy to me in some sense (ala Evangelion).... I can't stand when sci-fi is primarily space based..... I can't stand D&D styled western fantasy with the exception of Tolkien's and Terry Pratchett related stuff (though Pratchett is European)....  And yes, I am relatively close minded... LoL.... The end

Man... reading this thread is almost making me consider putting aside my disdain for both sci-fi and WRPG's and giving ME2 a go.... almost.... close but no cigar as they say....

Anyhoo.... today is a big day for me.... why? BECAUSE I have finally decided at 90 hours to move on with Xenoblade without neurotically and compulsively forcing myself to finish more quests!!! This is both difficult for me and liberating.... if you knew what an obsessive-compulsive-anal-completionist-type that I am you would understand.... But yes at 90 hours in, Klyde has said "screw colony restoration, damnit!!"...... I just feel like its time to lay this one to rest at this point..... Great as Xenoblade may be, I have too many other titles to afford it any more time.... I've been playing this thing since november.....

EDIT: This declaration has been made, by the way, to hold me to my word in a sense..... otherwise when I come home from work later I'm gonna reconsider this epiphany and scramble around for quest items that have eluded me for days now..... LoL
1416  Media / Brush and Quill / Visual art thread! on: January 22, 2012, 05:30:24 PM
EDIT: 1/28/12: Changed this to the visual art thread to broaden the scope of things and hopefully get more people posting on this one then just me.... It wasn't my aim to have "Klyde's Visual Art thread" but I'm starting to get the feeling no one in this community really gets involved with art much here.... This edit is more or less a last ditch effort to really try and foster some involvement...

So I've been enjoying my steam-punk thread over in general discussion (even though no one joined me in posting any of their own creations...) and thought to myself "hey, why not a thread to show off our lovely communities efforts as far as anime and gaming art is concerned!".... but I didn't know where to put the thread (here or general discussion)..... so I'm tossing it here!

I know you guys have a taking a swing or two at your own personal illustrations of Cloud Strife! Show em off!!!

Only rule, lets keep it to our own personal creations!

I'll start with a gaming tattoo and original anime-esque rendering currently in the process of becoming a half sleeve for a lovely client on mine!



and.....


1417  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Last Story - EU Limited Edition Details on: January 22, 2012, 02:06:31 PM
I actually think after playing xenoblade, I prefer the euro voice-overs.... Totally grabbing this one, Klyde is....... Sad part is I still feel like I need to buy the US releases when they come out to do my part in making sure companies see fit to localize these gems....
1418  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: DO you Get 100% in every Rpg? on: January 21, 2012, 05:39:20 PM
On this note, I'm so stuck on whether I should move forward with Xenoblade or not.... so many more hours of quests, but I'm really just feeling moving on at this point.... I completed a ton of stuff but sort of slacked a bit on the reconstruction side-quest..... Don't know what to do.... 86 hours in.... compulsively trying to complete things.... all I want is STORY..... ohhhh the madness of it all......

You obviously were the first choice actor for Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo, but had to turn it down because the action wasn't hot enough for you. I'll be taking my prize now. ;)

Damn your good!! While that is true, it was not my career path of choice thus, it was not the answer I was looking for.... Sorry, you'll have to keep playing :)

On that note....

TODAY'S HINT IS.....This profession requires a # of years of shcooling/education....

NOTE:
The hints will become less general and more narrow as time goes on..... can't make it too easy right off the bat now can I?

And onto todays post!!



I call this one "The Queen"

Well for now, this is Klyde Chroma saying, be well, be safe, and happy guessing!
1421  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atlus Game Announcement Thread - Mark 2 on: January 20, 2012, 03:27:46 PM
Voice-overs or not this growlanswer news makes me happy as a lark..... I am a huge growlanser fan... in fact I dare say its the only SRPG series I've enjoyed as much, if not more than, disgaea.... this news makes me wanna replay em bad!
1422  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tokitowa - Time and Eternity (third person 2D/3D RPG, imageepoch, PS3) announced on: January 20, 2012, 03:23:17 PM
story aside, I'm sold on the aesthetics here...... good golly, I hope we see an american release
1423  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Klyde's Steam and Clock Punk Thread on: January 20, 2012, 01:14:21 PM
That is a mighty sweet tat.  Did you draw it, or tattoo it on him, or both?

Both. 9 out of 10 tattoos I do are all completely original. That is, not flash (pictures on the wall in the tattoo parlor) or from direct reference (brought to me from clients).

Much more work being a custom artist, but far more lucrative and rewarding.
1424  The Rest / The Bazaar / Re: Dice's Artbooks & Games Super Sale on: January 20, 2012, 01:00:48 PM
Ya know, I come on this forum everyday now for quite awhile.... never do I check the bazaar....... and damnit... if only I saw this post earlier... some real gems you had in the art book department dice.... and you let em go at such a good rate.... im keeping an eye out here anymore, thats for sure
1425  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Klyde's Steam and Clock Punk Thread on: January 19, 2012, 05:38:26 PM
Today we have something special!!.... A clock/ steam-punkerly tattoo!!!

This was absolutely awesome to get to work on..... when a client brings me a concept I am already passionate about in some respect (gaming tats, anime, et cetera.....) it doesn't really get any better then that :) This job was a true blessing for me.



Now...... Moving on.....

...TODAY BEGINS "KLYDES PERSONAL TRIVIA CONTEST" (as detailed above) where brave souls from across RPGFan Forums unite to guess their little hearts out to win a steam-punkerly creation!

The first contests topic is "KLYDES FIRST CAREER PATH OF CHOICE!"

Before I decided to make visual art my lifelong pursuit and primary source of income I had many jobs.... however I did also have direction as far as to what was to be my career (not just an odd job to make a buck).... Plans however fell through, for various reasons which will be disclosed once the contest has ended.... Now onto the first clue!

CLUE NUMBER 1: This job has a dress code, or appropriate "work attire" if you will....


Stay tuned for more clues and remember your allowed 1 guess per calender day, so don't be bashful! Take advantage of each day to narrow down the possibilities! The ending date for this contest is Thursday Febuary 2nd
