166  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Should I replay FFX or wait for the remake? on: March 31, 2013, 10:47:16 AM
Well, the problem is that the new stuff hasn't been working for me lately. I loved every FF up until FFXI (no interested in MMOs). Didn't enjoy FFXII and the great automated battle and lame Vaan shoehorned in. Didn't enjoy the rail-running do-nothing-but-fight-and-watch-cutscenes-of-emo-people FFXIII, didn't enjoy it-doesn't-make-sense-so-it-must-be-a-paradox! (then is the whole GAME a paradox?) FFXIII-2, going to pass on FFXIII-3, no interest in FFXIV (MMOS again), etc, etc, etc.

They didn't bring out FF Type 0 or Bravely Default, two Square games I was looking forward to.

The ONLY new Square game I have enjoyed since FFX was FF:Dimensions. That's it. Everything else..... meh.

But I did enjoy playing some of the remakes on the handhelds, would pick up FFX and get some sweet love for my Vita.

Walked like 20 miles today. Went to Katzinger's Deli. Had a gruyere, onion, and spicy mustard sandwich. Got absinthe ice cream for dessert. Followed that with a kombucha.

Yeah that'll make you puke.

I feel sick just reading that.

I've been bringing in some of the worst numbers at work lately.... I used to be the best (till they told me I was the best...goddamn jinx!!)

Then I come home to see I am missing two invites to party and have some fun.

Now I am copying notes from a textbook.

I was feeling poopy till my puppy barged in and said "what up" in her doggy eyes.

Me

Yeah, I've been the same way. The Bank is audit obsessed and one typo meant my numbers plummeted like a rock. The worst part is that the bad numbers stay on your record for the year so I'll be at the bottom of the rankings until someone else screws up. The sad part is, that this doesn't show all of the good stuff I go out of my way to do, so it just feels like a screw you each month when they post the rankings.

I need a puppy to cuddle.

Well, if I didn't already have them...... Quite a few people on these boards were considering the DDS saga judging from the SMT thread :)

There are people out there who are out for themselves and don't care about hurting other people if it gets them their way. And there are people out there who want to make both persons in the relationship happy and support each other in the downs and cheer each other in the ups in this thing called life.

Yeah, I guess its harder for a guy when the girl is the abusive one. Women get support, people know about abusive men, but for some reason, abusive women aren't seen to be as scary by third parties. BS though - men are more likely to do physical abuse but its the mental and emotional abuse that is harder to spot and harder to recover from.

I'm more visual, so my hobbies are pottery (both throwing and sculpting clay), drawing and painting fantasy art.

I like to cook and bake, much to my husband's delight. He goes to the gym extra times a week so he can have extra helpings ;)

I am also a book junkie.

I qualify as disabled (legally deaf) so I am getting some taxes back. That will pay for for 1/3 of my hearing aids that need replacing next month.

On the subject of health, not feeling so great these days. I've been having random attacks of severe vomiting, and my doctor can't figure out why. I have been on a waiting list to see a specialist since October (Canada - where everyone gets health care if you don't mind waiting for it). Starting to feel a bit alarmed since I am now passing blood in addition to the vomiting. Still have another month to go. 

On the plus side, everyone thinks I look great for all the weight I've lost!  <_<  (I haven't really told anyone IRL).

Maybe a digital release is an option? Didn't they say that the PS4 will not be able to handle the physical media, but perhaps it could the digital.

Bioshock isn't my thing, but my husband is squee for the series. I'll probably be watching him play while I am going through EO4. :)

See, arguing this over a forum takes too long, too much to type and most of it gets lost behind other posts. I don't dislike turnbased games, but I'm not going to ask for them instead of games like dragon's dogma, or ni no kuni, or tales of anything. Turnbased is boring, lacks strategy, and makes an otherwise gripping adventure a challenge in how long I can smash my x button before I notice I should heal. And say what you want about the shin megami shit, I've played a few and they operate mostly the same outside of status effects actually working well, meaning I need to heal for those too. Bash XIII all you like, but it required a tad bit more strategical thinking in later fights then hit hit heal repeat. Even tactical rpgs give you positional control so you can target enemies in groups better.

Yes, I enjoy the hell out of games like Chrono Trigger, but fuck balls if I asked them to lleave the battle system alone if they remade it again.

Really? I feel the same way about action. Smash my X button until I notice I need to heal, stop and heal, go back to mashing X. I always felt that turn based games offered a bit more strategy vs. more "realism" in an action game. The action pauses, you can consider your next action, and execute it without being rushed. Turn based games often seem to have more relevant spells, etc. than action games, where they do seem to be mashing one button for the majority of the battle (ok, so random encounters you will often use just the X button too, but at least I don't get sore hands/thumbs from the mash-fest).

Well, I do need something to play on a portable and my Vita needs some love. I'll likely pick up Toroti then!

So for those who have played it, is this a good first game for me to experience this series?

Oops thanks. I thought for some reason the flame was in the South Sanctuary. Now figured out I was supposed to move on. Thought those ships were still there. Derp.
177  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Etrian Odyssey IV announced for 3DS on: March 18, 2013, 08:40:35 PM
I don't see any.... I am in the building where the conference took place. Am I supposed to go to the other building?

Just entered the Echoing Library. Where the f... is the stairs?
