As a recently recovered cripple myself let me welcome you back to realm of the walking Grim! Congrats!!



I've been dying to do the Disney Vacation.  Is that bad/boring?  I just wanna get pampared, headbutt Mickeymouse, and hit up a waterpark. 

If that is bad or boring color me wicked and mundane because that sounds appealing as all hell to me. Haven't been to disney since I was little. And it wasn't really a vacation, I was only there to compete in a competition.

On your way through pick me up in Northeast Pennsyl-tucky will ya??

Alex and Luna, Lunar Silver Star Story. Being in love since they were kids, knowing they were always gonna be together, and then Luna's kidnapping and Alex becoming the right hand of the goddess to save her...and the secret of her story altogether...man it's touching even if it's cheesy as all fuck. All the character's love stories were pretty nice, but Alex and Luna...I'd like to meet a guy who wouldn't want this to happen to him. Pretty sure every guy in existence has a fantasy along these lines.

As far as Romance is concerned I must agree that Lunar nails it! But to expand, its less the exclusive Alex/Luna love I appreciate and more of the romance dynamic in the series. Jessica and Kyle in particular really entertained me but it was the Hiro and Lucia relationship in Eternal Blue that I was truly able to relate to a bit more than any other romance dynamic. While Alex/Luna and Hiro/Lucia both illustrate an idealistic love, I always felt like Hiro was "fighting against the odds" a bit more when it came to winning Lucia's affection (which proved endearing) whereas the Alex/Luna thing was predistined and illustrated Alex's dedication to his love. In other words, Alex fights to protect indomitable love whereas Hiro is fighting to attain it.

I'm also going to echo the Celes/ Locke mentions on account of really being able to relate to Locke. Nothing more need be said on that note.

But truthfully romance is not my gig. Honestly it disturbs my enjoyment of some narratives. Maybe it is simply because I'm not that affectionate or easily taken by the opposite sex or maybe it is because in the wake of saving the world/destroying evil empires/slaying demons and liberating the opressed bagging myself a wife would become an afterthought... but the truth is the only romances I can really relate to are those involving an uninterested party too dedicated to their purpose to even notice the affection. Sorry if that sounds confusing.

On that note, I really liked Tatsuya in P2 EP and IS. What I liked was how he was way to wrapped up in being emo about his problems and the battle at hand making his own love interest and those interested in him distant 2nd's so to speak. Clearly love motivated him, but it was not the sole driving force behind his fighting and often times clearly ignored in the interest of "the greater good".

I also liked Asbel being damn near oblivious to the affections offered to him in tales of graces F as well his brother Huberts outright denial of them.


Which finally brings me to my final answer to the question. Cloud and Tifa. I could go on for awhile about why this illustrates the most relatable relationship or romance dynamic I've seen in a game but I would be echoing my earlier points. What the cloud/tifa dynamic has that makes it unique is the element of Aeris. And all in all none of the love interests really bud or develop as result of the far more impacting and dire events transpiring outside of this character development but rather the element of "love" itself just acts as proper motivation or fuel for our heroes. The love in FF7 is far more bitter sweet then we usually see, and in my experience "bitter sweet" tends to be a far more common "flavor" of love.

If I can pull it off I may remain skype-less. I think I read something about there being emotion icons to express yourself or something to that effect...
604  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Which game brings you back? on: August 01, 2013, 04:53:36 PM
Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VI, Final Fantasy Tactics, Donkey Kong Country 2, The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, Mega Man X.  I could play those games forever and ever.  I might be able to say the same about Persona 4 - I played it for the first time in January, almost immediately replayed it in February into March, and I kinda want to play it again.  Holding out until I buy a Vita, though. 

I was only touching Rpg's with my earlier answer... DKC 1-3 and Mega Man X 1-3 also hold some of the finest nostalgic value of all for me as well! Fine tastes you've got good sir :)

Just finished Atelier Ayesha. What a lovely and charming game that proved to be.

I am going to express what I feel compelled to here rather than reviving the dead thread over in single player... I already brought it back from the grave once.

Really all I have to say is KEITHGRIFF KICKS ASS (he really stole the show for me in a manner of speaking)!! Actually I felt he, Willbell and Marion were all quite memorable for me.

Totally adored this game. What a nice change of pace after playing persona 2 IS and EP back to back. I wish the turn based system in Ayesha were used in more epic adventure with some serious tone to it.

With that done, I think I'm gonna tie up my final loose ends in P4 Arena for my last current gen endeavor before Dragons Crown and Xilia next week.

But soon its the weekend... and that means retro gaming for Klyde!! Looking forward to getting back to Secret of Mana! It was reeeeeal hard to put it down last weekend-LoL

this thread has officially planted the SO2 seed in me. i see a play-through in the not so distant future. never did entertain the psp remake and it has been long enough that I have effectively forgotten most of the game (always makes for the best re-plays... sense of both nostalgia and excitement... I love knowing I'm gonna love it without remembering why)
607  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Which game brings you back? on: August 01, 2013, 02:35:33 PM
Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, FF6, Lufia, and breath of fire 2 in the realm of rpgs. I'll probably continue to re-play these aforementioned titles until I die-LoL

ok... there has been way too much going on here in this thread for me to backtrack, quote and properly reply. so I am gonna make this a general statement to all those who kindly assisted in clarifying "skyping" to me.

first I thank you.

secondly, no i truly did not know about skyping. furthermore, you would be astounded at how cleverly ignorant I have remained  to some major progressive staples of society, particularly in the avenue of media, social networks, eletronics and even gaming. As stated, Dragons Crown will be the first effort I have ever made to play online multi-player in any respect. I didn't even add friends to my game accounts until 2 months ago with my little animal planet effort (epic fail).

adapting to advancing tech for me is a necessary evil I begrudgingly accept. if I had things my way phones would still have chords on them... skyping just has not proved a necessary adaptation for me (yet).

is my stance ignorant? most certainly. logical? certainly not. Am i defending it? by no means. just being honest. thank you for entertaining my idiocy without laughing (too hard). LoL

so i met this girl. at first we were just good friends but then just by being her she started to effortlessly tear down every last emotional wall i had errected over the years until my love resistance was 0. now i have been afflicted with the strange status effect known as love. at first i was terrified and confused but she said she loves me too so im so happy i could cry. a few girls have professed to love me over the years but i couldnt love them back until those barriers came down.

perhaps this is the change i needed

You should come visit me and I can teach her to tattoo and she can tattoo her name on you. LoL

NOTE: Refer to my recent posts if you don't get it...

I'm contemplating a back tattoo, actually. I haven't pinned down a design yet and probably will leave it to ruminate for a year or two. Not to mention seeking out a top of the line artist and having money for it.

Doing solid black well is tricksier (yes I said TrIcKsY) than some care to recognize. Many (artists included) think even solid saturation in tattoos is easily, or at least safely, achieved. This is not the case unfortunately and I've seen many "good" artists incapable of doing and solid saturation of black that passes in my book. I don't know if I qualify as "top of the line" by your standards but I am confidant I can handle whatever it is you want if your ever in my area... you of course get the RPGFan discount... I've been dying to tattoo one of you folk for well over a year now!!


EDIT: Well, it appears I misread "back" as "black" so half of what I said is irrelevant and out of context... sorry. Refer to the title beneath my name if you don't get it. LoL

is it harder to tatoo darker skinned individuals?

Sometimes. Certain colors tend to work better and stay longer, brighter colors for instance. That's my understanding as an observant outsider with many acquaintances that do tattooing. How did I do, Klyde?

Oddly enough a lot of the brighter inks don't show up as well on darker toned individuals. Now when I say dark, I mean extreme african american dark. Otherwise skin tone, while an influential factor in choice of tonality, is not inhibiting in any sense.

On the tattoo note, while it is not a gaming or anime related piece I'm posting this any way because I had a grand ol' time getting to do it. Skin tear pieces are not uncommon... Skin tear pieces over this large of an area however are.

Thanks for the prompt responses! What is and how does this "skyping" work?
612  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Kickstart PS1 style RPG, takes place over 3 decades. on: July 31, 2013, 03:21:24 PM
The one PS1 style RPG on Kickstarter that I like is Soul Saga, but the big reason for that is that Aivi Tran's doing the music and I really like her stuff.

that looks freakin' awesome... i may be more excited to see this than most future prospects I am aware of ATM
613  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon's Crown (Vanillaware RPG, now 2013 all regions) announced for PS3/Vita on: July 31, 2013, 03:17:37 PM
So, as I have expressed in past posts, I've never EVER done online co-op/multiplayer before. i need some pointers here... do I or should i purchase any slick accessories (head set thingy, mic, keyboard???) that would enhance playing this specifically, with you fine folk?
614  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The favorite sidequests thread on: July 30, 2013, 03:39:00 PM
I really loved doing the cube puzzles in Wild Arms Alter Code F even though the prizes sucked for the most part (with the exception of a few.)

But my favorite sidequests are always those that yield playable characters as pays offs (yuffie and vincent/ff7 type stuff). Hence why the Suikoden franchise proved a wet dream for me.
