31  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Looking for some good western style RPG's (No elder scrolls games or PC games) on: March 23, 2013, 05:20:39 PM
My PC is a little old but can run the original Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare just fine. The only reason I said no PC games are because a lot of the "great" RPG's are a little older from at least the 90's and I don't want to buy them used because the whole CD key thing and I don't hack or use key generators or anything. Other reason is compatibility issues even though I'm using a Windows computer. I might have to change that little exception of PC games....
32  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Looking for some good western style RPG's (No elder scrolls games or PC games) on: March 20, 2013, 11:14:12 PM
I say western styled games because I'm pretty sure most users know that a Japanese company can make a western RPG and a North American company can make a Japanese style RPG. I don't necessarily like the terms jrpg and wrpg but anyway....I looked through my collection and noticed the only western RPG's I have are Mass Effect a couple of the Fable games and I think X-Men Legends on Gamecube lol. The systems I have to work with are Xbox 360 and Playstation 2. I never got into any of the elder scrolls games because I don't like how they don't have a huge emphasis on story and kind of leave the player off to do whatever they want instead of guiding the player through stages in the game. Correct this if it's wrong maybe I'll consider the games. Thanks
33  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Curious to see others opinions on Working Designs if it was a new company.... on: March 18, 2013, 10:09:42 PM
Basically does anyone think Working Designs would be as relevant as it is or have as many fans as it does if it was a new company that formed say within the last decade or so something along that. Reason being is that in my opinion their are a lot more publishers that seem to specialize in bringing strange Japanese titles to the US that end up becoming hits. Examples are Xseed and NIS for sure. The biggest one is probably Atlus which was probably the second company after Working Designs that started to do this. Don't get me wrong I definetely think that these companies were influenced by Working Designs even though it was a small company. these companies also seem to provide great localizations as well as packaging extras with the first releases of their games. There's no question that Working Designs was probably the first and they were around at a point in gaming where things like this just weren't normal and they were also appreciated by many people. Too bad the company is no more I'm curious as to what games they would have brought over
34  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Question about SMT Nocturne on: March 18, 2013, 10:02:37 PM
I've never played any of the SMT games even though most gamers talk about how great these games are. I did a little reading up on the series and found out that originally they started out as Megami Tensei and then later games became Shin Megami Tensei as they were created. What I gathered was that this was the main series and the Persona games seemed like a side story. I went to a Gamestop a few towns away and saw that they were still carrying PS2 games. One being this one and the other being Digital Devil Saga which I know is two games. I don't want to track down the other game and I rather start off trying out the series with a game in the main series as I also read that this is SMT 4 in the long line of games. I like more traditional RPG's not a super complicated story or gameplay elements. Also I doin't mind if they are random battle or turn based battles. I guess that's one of the reasons a Persona game never really appealed to me. I like simulation certain simulation games but this one controlling Japanese kids as they go through their regular routines with relationships and meeting other people didn't appeal to me at all. I didn't like the mix of simulation and RPG together as well as the whole setting of the game. Don't get me wrong I like modern games and games from this generation (not only old RPG's or RPG's with traditional gameplay elements) but there was just something about those games that didn't make me want to play and seemed like if I did buy it and playthrough it that it would be more of a chore than something fun to play. How does the main series compare are the simulation elements out of it or not
35  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: I need to borrow someone's Legend of Dragoon disc 2 on: March 16, 2013, 08:34:53 PM
Like I said I tried that too. It doesn't work I've tried most ways their are to fix it I need to use another disc to play it on
36  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / I need to borrow someone's Legend of Dragoon disc 2 on: March 16, 2013, 08:07:50 PM
This game is known to give the PS2 a lot of problems when playing it. Basically I run into this part where the game fades out to a black screen and the music is still playing but it doesn't load up to the next scene. This happened on the first disc and I ended up buying another disc and than didn't have anymore problems. Then on disc 2 I'm running into the same problem. Cleaning it doesn't work as I've tried it already and I also tried to play it on another system. I don't need any advice on what to do because I know what to do and nothing works. If someone would be so kind as to send me their disc 2 just to get past this part I'll pay for shipping and also pay to ship it back. I probably won't even have it for a week I just need to get past the part, save and than continue to use my disc that I have already. I don't want to buy another extra disc and I don't really have the money even if it is around $20 thanks

I edited my topic sorry
38  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Who has The Legend of Dragoon for PSX? on: March 16, 2013, 06:58:11 PM
Basically I need to ask something about the disc but I need to see if more people actually have the game
39  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Who has The Legend of Dragoon for PSX? on: March 16, 2013, 06:49:02 PM
A pretty common game but I'll know the answer if no one replies to the thread. Basically I already know the game runs horrible on the PS2 and especially the slim one. When I first started the game I couldn't even get up to controlling the main character before the game wouldn't load up. When moving from this certain scene the game would fade out to a black screen while the music still played but wouldn't load up to the next part. I cleaned the disc and even tried it on another PS2 to no avail. I ended up purchasing another disc 1. Not a whole nother game just a disc. I had no problems and got to the second disc and again same problem. No it is not a battle or anything or a boss because I know their's is a pretty bad glitch on the 2nd disc. Basically what I'm asking the community is it someone would lend me their disc 2 I'll even pay for shipping just because this is super frustrating and I don't really have the funds to buy this game again even if it's only around $20. I'll pay for shipping if people are really mistrusting I guess they can make a mark on their disc that only they will see or know where it is. Even though I won't switch the discs and send the other one back. I have a feeling it's the PS2 even though I've tried another system. If someone could help I'd really appreciate it thanks
40  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Round 5: Secret of Mana vs Kingdom Hearts on: March 13, 2013, 09:56:57 PM
Yeah I enjoyed the first Kingdom Hearts and the second along with Chain of Memories the others are haven't even played and when I look at story explanations it's all over the place so much that I'm not even interested. That coupled with the characters going through the same worlds as the first games except for maybe a few differences kind of confuses me how the series is still so popular with fans talking about how great the newer games are. What made the first game great was just how simple the gameplay and story were while still being serious and entertaining all at once. The game never took itself too seriously which was also great because their are Disney worlds in it so it all makes sense. With the second game they started too become serious and besides that it was too long with having too see all the worlds again and the gameplay started to become repetitive with all the combos it was all just button mashing. I still liked the game though because it did add a lot of new worlds and characters and wasn't as serious as all the side stories coming out
41  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Round 5: Secret of Mana vs Kingdom Hearts on: March 13, 2013, 09:51:25 PM
I still don't understand why so many people like Secret of Mana lol. Is it just because they possibly played it when they were young maybe. I didn't even though I have the original cartridge I was thinking of playing it on the virtual console. I could care less about the co op gameplay but even the single player gameplay I kind of like because it keeps it from being a button masher. I enjoyed Secret of Evermore when I played through that game and people seem to rate that game far behind
42  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Round 5: Secret of Mana vs Kingdom Hearts on: March 13, 2013, 09:46:40 PM
The purpose of these threads are for one myself to see other people's opinions on the games listed, which for one are not the most common games to be compared. (They are not FFVI vs FFVII threads) I try to pick some games that might have a little bit in common but wouldn't neccessarily be compared for any reason and also games that aren't talked about too much. I would understand if their was a Star Ocean vs. Tales thread to be called a repeat but, for example the DQ3 and FF3 thread both games are from the same generation of gaming, both from the two biggest RPG series and also have some gameplay similarities like the job system and both games also aren't know for having exactly epic stories. I was very interested and delighted to see the responses because they were both in depth and I had no idea about either of the games honestly. That's another thing I don't always weigh in on the games because some of them I want to find out more of them. Also if you're gonna complain about the thread don't post in it. By the responses in the other threads other users seem to like them. Also this week's thread I couldn't really think of two games to compare and I was actually thinking of making a final round thread but after this I'm going to continue making them lol
43  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: So finished FFXII....onto The Legend of Dragoon on: March 13, 2013, 09:33:46 PM
Just got on to the second disc and so far this game is awesome. Their is something about it....I mean the story is not complicated which I like and the gameplay is just so fun. I think one of the problems with RPG's of this generation and the last one is that they try to make themselves so complicated that either I have no idea what's going on or they try to be so original and different that it's just dumb. Both gameplay and story wise and the games of the playstation generation and before it were just great. The game so far isn't too difficult except for some boss fights but the game isn't too easy it's a nice balance
44  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Round 5: Secret of Mana vs Kingdom Hearts on: March 13, 2013, 08:59:18 PM
Two Action RPG's from the same developer that don't take themselves two seriously. (The first Kingdom Hearts) The later games started to go all over the place and weren't as good in my opinion. I was surprised at so many people in the RPG community talking about how great Secret of Mana is compared to other games released on the SNES. I haven't beaten the game but played a decent amount of it waiting for the epic story to start or the plot twists to come about only to be disappointed and read that they never come about in the game. With these games I'm gonna have to go with Kingdom Hearts just because I think the game is more fun gameplay wise while neither are button mashers I like the enviornments better in this game
45  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Kinda technical question (Playstation) on: March 04, 2013, 08:15:57 PM
I wasn't sure where to post this but was just curious how long does the average sony made Playstation 1 controller last? I have a red PSone controller that worked fine this week until all of a sudden the "X" button stops working for the most part. (Need to press really hard and multiple presses for it to work) I thought it was possibly the game (The Legend of Dragoon) but I tried using it just on the sony menu and had the same problem. The controller looks like its in great shape and I've had it for a while. Also do all PS1 games played on a PS2 work with PS2 controllers? Because I'm using a PS2 controller because of this problem.
