5281  The Rest / General Discussions / The villain discussion on: July 05, 2007, 03:03:19 PM
Quote from: "The Darkrider"
"Roger Bacon" (Shadow Hearts) - Fuck, I can't remember his real name.  That doesn't matter though.  As far as pure evil goes, I can't think of another villain in recent memory that does it quite like he does.  That is, until the sequel comes along and makes him out to be stupidly sympathetic.  I liked him better as the heartless motherfucker he was in the first one.


I agree, it was revisionist bullshit to make Roger sympathetic in the second game. I hated it.

As far as Suikoden II goes, Luca Blight is one of the weaker points of the game. Yes, he merciless, but also one dimensional.  The really good part about Suikoden II is it doesn't have a main villain after Luca is killed. It's about the conflict between Jowy and the hero - and it's much better.

I actually thought Seymour from FFX was a pretty good villain. He was smooth, he had charisma....yet this oily factor that just made him stand out as "sleazy dickrag". Plus he was dead, which helped.

I have to agree, it's pretty much entrapment.

Alisha, surely you can find *one* guy in your country who's not 17yo you'd like to procreate with?

Hmmm......It's  more barren than you'd think.

The Xenosaga series (all three games) is worth picking up.

Shadow Hearts 1 and 2 are worth getting

Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne, Digital Devil Saga (both games) and Devil Summoner are all must haves.

Final Fantasy 10 is also a must have.

FF 12, less so, but worth playing once.

For what it's worth, I actually *really liked* Tsugunai - Atonement, despite some antiquated gameplay mechanics.

Haven't played the Wild Arms games on PS2 - someone else can inform you better than I can. (But avoid the remake of Wild Arms 1 at *all costs*.)

Drakengard 1&2 are interesting but not perfect games.  

As are Grandia 3 and Valkyrie Profile 2. But they're both worth owning.

Not worth owning is Radiata Stories. It's shit served on a DVD.

I don't give a crao about Disnazi shit like Kingdom Hearts - nor will I ever. Play at your own risk.

EDIT - Sorry, I missed the real time part of this thread -I'm drunk.

Transformers was great!

I was surprised how much I liked it. Very Michael Bay-ish, but definitely one of if not his best. I loved the humor in it, very well done.


That's the first time I've ever seen "Michael Bay" and "best" in a sentence together.

I just don't get the enthusiasm for this movie.

I read that and I partially agree.

I think it's just a matter of time until the PS3 catches up.

Sony know their bread and butter.

Playing RPGs on handhelds is okay......but it's not quite the same really.

Handhelds are for when I have some time to spare.

When I have a solid length of time to sit down and play, I prefer to play on a console with a big TV.

As for the Wii, well we already had this discussion about Suikoden VI

I honestly doubt that Mrs Saxon was
Code:
The Rani


Too obscure.

Probably just a boring human. The finale was pretty gutless but about what I was expecting.

Quote from: "Ramza"


Honestly, Legaia is not good. IMO, Legend of Dragoon is much better


I hated Dragoon more than I hated Legaia. I couldn't even finish it.
5288  Media / Single-Player RPGs / any modern rpgs/soundtracks like Parasite Eve etc.? on: July 02, 2007, 08:22:04 AM
Yeah, go for the Atlus games

Shin Megami Tensei
Persona
Digital Devil Saga

I can't really think of any other RPGs with "modern" soundtracks

Degolas is right.

It's meh.

Go for Ico.

I hope it kicks ass, and I hope Lucas doesn't rub his taint all over it and turn it into some CGI shitfest.


I read they were going to make the whip CGI until Ford threatened to quit.

Bridal Ceremony of the Lilitu - Danzig

(I always liked the versions of Careful With That Axe Eugene and Set The Controls For The Heart Of The Sun from Live At Pompeii)
5293  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Games these days on: June 28, 2007, 12:58:27 PM
Well....for something random and weird - try Mister Mosquito.

Lego Star Wars is fun. LSW 2 is better as it's the original trilogy.

I can't really recommend any scifi RPGs because Xenosaga is about it really.

Well you could try Digital Devil Saga.

One thing you might like is Shadow Hearts. It's an RPG that stands out enough on its own from the sword/sorcery genre.

Like driving games? (just asking)

Okami is a good adventure game with a cool interface.

You could always try picking up some PS1 games for your PS2, if you don't already have a bunch.

Just trying to throw out some different ideas.

Quote from: "KeeperX"

I don't know what version of Samurai Western you played, but I distinctly remember being able to take the top quarter or so of a person's body off in the berserk mode.  Sure, it was the head AND an arm, but that's still decapitation.


Ah I can't honestly remember. I remember blood spurting out of the guys but that's about it. Not a game that really stays in your memory.

Prime - :P

That's not an unplausible theory except for the part about
