i've gone from loving this week game to fucking despising it. warcadia is shitty and full of cheap assholes. EVERY time i get beaten by the boss, i have to go back through a screen full of 1500 of the fuckers, only to be klled by the boss. repeat ad nauseum. can't remember a bigger disappointment in recent memory.

I'm definitely digging it.

I can deal with the fixed camera, it's an RPG staple, and it doesn't bug me that much.

The crappy battle music on the other hand.....

So far though, that's my only real complaint.

And yeah - voice acting is excellent.

So, I'm back in Canada for holidays (horrendous trip home and shitty weather!), and have my PS3 set up and running.

I downloaded the Folklore demo because I was curious and really dug it.

Liked the music, mechanics seemed interesting and it's by (if I remember correctly) the guy who originally started Shin Megami Tensei (or is associated with it.)

Went to the store today and picked it up, along with Silent Hill Origins and Dementium The Ward. (New game for each system!)

I don't remember a big thread about it on here. Anyone else played it? Enjoy it?

Hitman.

Meh. Which is pretty much what I think of the games.
5105  The Rest / General Discussions / Reviewer fired over Kane & Lynch review...? on: November 30, 2007, 01:39:29 PM
I've never liked GS's reviews. I think they've always done a terrible job, overall.

I stopped reading closely after the "Devil May Cry 3 is too hard" review.

That said, I actually did agree with his Twilight Princess review (his comments about the music were spot on) and the idea that this kind of thing is happening is really troubling.

And people wonder why gaming journalism is taken seriously.

Edit - Penny-Arcade did a commentary.

I really liked Hotel Dusk for the DS. Great graphic adventure.

Saw IV - better than I expected.

Quote from: "Raze"
SII-Classic.
SV-Basically built on the foundation of II means if you like two you'll love it. For the same reason though, relying so strongly on imitation it can't surpass what it's imitating.


I thought it imitated a little too much.
5109  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Suikoden Favorites on: November 26, 2007, 08:34:10 AM
I've played them all (including both the Suikogaidens with walkthroughs)

Here's how I'd rank them (in order of favourites)

S2
S3
S1
S5
S4

Maybe I'll give Suiko 5 another playthrough while I'm home at Xmas. I liked it, but I thought it relied too much on nostalgia, personally.

I still think Suikoden 3 is underrated, and thought the Trinity Sight system was brilliant. It's just too bad about the battle system. The first three games really play out as a trilogy, and they are my favourite RPGs, period.

"The battle system was also some sort of proto-breath of fire thing that never did anything for me."
What?

And *please* lose the coloured text.

Elizabeth.

After going to see the Queen a few months ago, I wasn't quite ready for another docu-drama about a Queen.

Not bad for a historical film, but certainly could have been watched on TV.
5111  The Rest / General Discussions / Best worst video reviews on: November 22, 2007, 11:49:50 AM
I'd say check out the Xenogears but you've all already seen it.

They spend about 10 seconds reviewing the game and then just show the opening video.

Don't forget that Star Ocean's music is a rip off of Final Fantasy 6.

Silent Hill "Much of the game is silent, so the game is aptly named".

ugh

The anime snippets in P3 weren't exactly high budget, though if it can capture the same feel (and hopefully the same music - I'm a fan of its acquired taste) I'd love it nonetheless.


So am I, but honestly? The Fes OST is pretty weak.

Saw Beowulf as well. Wasn't as boring as I was expecting it to be; entertaining.

Quote from: "Lard"
Which actually wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be until the part where Angelina Jolie's character is walking on the water - in *high heels*.


That bit made the audience laugh. :P


It made me cringe. :P

Did it.

Weren't they supposed to take my blood?
