OK, using this input and my own personal gaming preferences I've come down to six choices:

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
Earthbound
Final Fantasy Tactics
Skies of Arcadia
Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King
Tales of Vesperia


I'll make the quiz about one of those six.  I apologize that it's half Square-Enix, but a lot of my history of playing RPGs is Square-Enix.  A few more days of discussion, then I'll pick one and start replaying, playing, researching, and writing.  So let's talk.

Least-favorite class ever: Battle Suits from Disgaea 4.  I love most of the Disgaea 4 classes and characters, but Battle Suits are just lame.  They're decent fighters, but automatically self-destruct when their HP goes below 10%.  I've had one at full health gain 40 levels after one attack, have its HP below 10% as a result of its new max HP, and then die.  **** Battle Suits.  

Haha - that is tragically hilarious.  I must have never created one of them...
Yeah, their requirements are on the high side, so most people don't create Battle Suits or Androids unless they delve into the post-game.  But seriously **** Battle Suits. 

I'll listen to the new cast tomorrow at work, probably.  Depends on whether I have an office day or field work.

I have played Radiant Historia and I enjoyed it, but I dunno if enough others have played it.  Would anyone besides Aeolus be down for that quiz? 

And in addition far we've had people propose or second SMRPG and FF Tactics, and I could write quizzes about either.  Do we have any additional suggestions? 
514  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show! on: August 10, 2013, 11:43:54 PM
I could *definitely* do quizzes for FFT or SMRPG, but not Valkyrie Profile.  Haven't played it, sorry.  I do own a copy of VP Lenneth for the PSP, though.  I ought to get on that. 

And thanks, PF!  More prizes means more incentive means happier players.  I'm all for that.  Do we have any other suggestions?  I want to have several on the table before I ask for final thoughts and make a decision.

...I won't be participating in the next quiz, because I'm writing it instead!  StarMongoose is going to be extremely busy this month and I offered to write the August 24th edition of the quiz in his place.  So you know what that means...

I need some help deciding which game to quiz y'all on

For the next several days, please suggest any and all RPGs on which you'd like to be quizzed.  The quiz format, rules, and prize are going to be exactly the same as they've always been.  In general, my expertise is Japanese RPGs from the early 90s to the middle 2000s, but there are exceptions to that rule, of course.  Fire as many suggestions as you want and we'll see what sticks.

Woo!  Had a blast again.  Thanks for continuing to do these, Mongoose!

I've been in a DKC mood.  Recently played DKC Returns.  Might revisit others soon.  

Jungle Groove (Donkey Kong Country)*
Stickerbrush Symphony (Diddy's Kong Quest)
Lockjaw's Saga (Diddy's Kong Quest)
Enchanted Riverbank (Dixie Kong's Double Trouble)
Palm Tree Groove (Donkey Kong Country Returns)**
Music Madness (Donkey Kong Country Returns)***

*that song, along with 10-15 others, is remixed brilliantly in Donkey Kong Country returns.  Worth checking out.  
**this is one of several jazzy remixes of Jungle Groove / Jungle Hijinks.  Most of the silhouette stages use a jazzy version like this one.
***that's a remix of Fear Factory from DKC, and the stage has its obstacles and enemies moving in time to the music.  It's fantastic.

Finally beat DKCR.  Last few stages were a real pain.  But honestly, my favorite video game genre other than RPGs is platformers, and this was a hella-good platformer.  Too bad the new DKC is for a console I won't own until at least 2016.

Big fan of Settlers of Catan, Ticket to Ride, and Agricola when it comes to "regular" board games.  For more roleplaying-ish stuff I'm way into Betrayal at House on the Hill.  Win conditions different almost every game, and it gets REALLY DAMN DRAMATIC if you sink good playtime into it.  100% recommended to everyone that likes character-building games, variable win conditions, and horror themes.

Speaking of love triangles and friends.

Has this thread mentioned Vyse x Aika x Fina?
I hadn't, but I guess I was thinking more about couples.  That is as obvious a threesome as you can get in a PG-rated game.

I used to watch Kim Possible with my younger sister, because it was on before her Disney shows (Lizzie McGuire and Even Stevens).  KP was solid stuff.  I think I have the first KP movie on DVD somewhere.

I heard that Bonkers was originally going to be a cartoon adaptation of Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but they couldn't get the license for whatever reason and remade the concept with new characters.  Too bad.  Bonkers was okay, but not my favorite.

Starters:
Jolteon
Alakazam
Rhydon
Starmie
Tauros
MOTHER****ING SNORLAX WHAT

Bench:
Dragonite
Venusaur
Hitmonlee

EDIT: I should mention that this was the most recent time I played R/B.  My first time I'm pretty sure it was mostly Venusaur, Zapdos, Snorlax, and Starmie.  Whatever.  TL;DR Snorlax and Starmie are the best.

Holy crap, I remember Fillmore, but I think it was slightly after my time.  Did it last very long?  I remember thinking it disappeared. 
525  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGfan Community Quiz Quiz Show! on: August 04, 2013, 11:32:45 PM
**** all that.  Bulbasaur all the way.  Annihilates Brock and Misty.  By the time you get to Surge you have a Geodude, Onix, or Sandshrew, and by the time you get to Erika you should have a Kadabra*, Growlithe, or Vulpix.  Some of us don't have the time to level up a Charmeleon in the Viridian Forest.

*remember, every Grass pokemon in Gen.1 is also poison element except Tangela
