Fuck, in general.
5567  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Japanese RPGs you've spent the most time on? on: June 07, 2007, 11:15:28 AM
I've played through Suikoden 1/2 about twice a year each since 1998 until now.

I have no idea how many hours that is.

You really need to play Pt. 1

Well I'd heard this game was short, but damn. Didn't expect the first disc to be *that* short.

All the first part of the second disc needed was Shion sitting on a chair to describe what was going on and it could have been a perfect Xenogears prequel.

Finally.

Oh and, I fucking hate Pronger. Dirty git.


What's wrong with Pronger?

And agreed  - finally.

Actually I'd argue we were even better off with the PS1

So far, it's not that bad. Though I've only just arrived at New Miltia and seen Shion's brother.

You haven't gotten to where it actually gets bad. Between the beginning of the game and that point, it's actually an improvement over the original thanks to being so much faster. Then at, uhh, the third dungeon I guess you can call it, they up and forgot why they made those battles so damn quick, and they start dragging out to 5 or even as long as 10 minutes. I hated it.


Are you talking about the part in Momo's psyche? That's where I am now. And it is dragging.

Ah bloody christwhore.
5575  The Rest / General Discussions / Do you like sequels with or without continuity? on: May 30, 2007, 01:26:57 PM
In getting into a raging debate about canon and continuity, I'm curious.

Do you prefer your RPG sequels to continue on from the previous game - ala Digital Devil Saga or Xenosaga? Or at least do a good job of world building with consistent details ala Suikoden?

Or do you prefer sequels that are independent from each other but carry on the spirit of the previous game - ala Grandia, Final Fantasy or Phantasy Star?

I much, *much* prefer the worldbuilding over independant sequels. There's alot to be said for a consistent vision with rules and attention to detail. Makes me feel like the writers actually give a damn.

I haven't played it myself, but from what I read the main complaint was the fact that you have to boost your attacks to do decent damage, even in normal battles. Thus, dragging battles for longer than they need to be.


Boosting was a big part of Xeno 1 too. I don't see the difference.

Robot Alchemic Drive (RAD)

Found it as I was checking some of my PS2 games. The plot and voice acting is cheesy, but its still a fun game. It feels fufilling remote controlling a giant robot, giving the other a good upper while buildings get destroyed in the process.


Love that game. Voice acting is atrocious - to the point that it's almost legendary now. Controls are unique and it's an overall fun game. Nice choice.

I just finished Okami and am starting Xenosaga 2.

I don't mind the battle system, it's not that different from FF 12's, saving up to buy skills, instead of equipment.

Shion's new voice *is* crap. Chaos' is an improvement.

The music is a mixed bag. I've had the soundtrack for ages - but I don't remember that really shit battle music being on it.

All in all, not as horrid as I've been led to believe.
