2221  Media / Single-Player RPGs / top 3 best/worst Final Fantasy games (no spine-off) on: August 08, 2007, 06:31:30 PM
My worst is FF12. Jesus that game was pitiful. Horrible storyline, terrible character development, terrible characters thrown in to appeal to the Squeenix fanboys (Vaan and Penelo), repetitive uninteractive combat grinding, terrible story progression, shitty gambit system.

Just to show the scope of the Final Fantasy series:

And yes, that list is missing a few handfuls of games

Quote from: "Alisha"
as i understand it TP has better story at the expense of moving the gameplay forward. i did however like the segments where you play as the wolf.


I would say it had a better presentation upgrade more than story. Although the story IS better than usual, although the character development is stale as ever.

i never played the oracle games but one of the things i really like about minish cap as opposed to the console zeldas is that for the most part the weapons you get feel new instead of rehashes of old standby's. the point i was at in twilight princess it just felt like OoT with new stages. also i think length can be relative when comparing a 2d game to a 3d game.


Well TP was made that way on purpose, it was really fanservice to the OoT fanbase. Remember how badly Wind Waker sold? They probably wanted to change that.

Sega isnt exactly the developer giant either these days anymore. I guess they'd rather invest their lower budget stuff on a action-RPG, a genre is very popular these days. Also, they have still been making SRPGs, the last one was on Cell Phone though.

Minish cap was good, I really liked the broken amulet sidequests but I don't think its fair to compare it to the bigger Zelda games. Minish was really short, at least it had some fanservice to show how the "Green Hero" legend got started.

Wait till you play the new DS Zelda, it will blow you away. Nintendo is still the best at making their own products of course.

Geez dont throw him into a grindfest so easily.

If you're totally new to RPGs, try the Paper Mario series, they're very lighthearted and fun. FFX isn't a bad choice either
2229  Media / Single-Player RPGs / What new rpg should I get? on: July 24, 2007, 06:14:27 AM
Taro's quest.
2230  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Shining Force hits the Virtual Console. on: July 23, 2007, 07:17:45 PM
Cool, hopefully it gives these wiippersnappers a taste of a classic game.
2231  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Anyone into Puzzle Quest? on: July 23, 2007, 01:12:38 PM
I'm waiting for the Xbox Live Arcade version to come out since I sold my DS :(

There's also a Wii version coming for $30

Even if there isn't a price drop, there were a lot of good deals last year and there probably will be this year too. By good deals I mean stuff like $100 rebate on Xbox 360s brand new.

I actually got my 360 at Best Buy last christmas. They price matched a Toys R Us deal which was $100 gift card with an Xbox 360 purchase.

Its definitely a good time to buy consoles around the holiday season, PS3 and 360 will probably have a lot of special deals since they're selling poorly.

The Japanese way is legit too, Microsoft doesn't care. They could have already stopped it if they wanted to, but they anticipated people downloading via the Japanese marketplace so they even put up a Full English Demo up there, with ESRB rating and all. The big deal about other regional accounts was that people were downloading licensed movies and TV shows (Which they stopped)
2234  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Game developers shouldn't fear old consoles... on: July 19, 2007, 03:00:31 PM
What really grinds my gears about console hardware discussion is how everyone associates a console's technology with just graphics. A console can do much more than just make a game shinier. Take a look at something like Dead Rising or Assassins Creed where you have over a hundred NPCs on screen at once, it's just fantastic. Draw Distance, AI, Objects on screen, Physics, online interactivity, they're all huge leaps that should be taken advantage of.


Of course the cost of development is MUCH higher now, and some developers just can't cut it (Nippon Ichi for example).
2235  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Mass Effect on: July 19, 2007, 12:01:22 AM
You HAVE to see that Conversation video. Its freaking unreal. It flows so perfectly and the characters stand around and move so naturally. God I want this game.
