2446  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Your current-gen top rpg list on: March 26, 2009, 09:06:28 AM
I'm quite a bit behind on my "current-gen" rpg playing. I have only played through and completed Mass Effect. Then again, not a whole lot else looks to be worth playing through, so...
1. Mass Effect

It seems no one knows how to make a GREAT(universally acclaimed) jrpg with the current technology. Every game that comes out seems to have some pretty major flaws. Doesn't seem to be much on the horizon either, besides FF XIII. It's all so...sad.

If it's like Phantom, then I'll have to pass. I liked that game for a little while, then got tired of it. Especially that godawful never ending dungeon, whatever it was called.
Zelda needs to be completely re-imagined. I like to think of Twilight as the culmination of the old school Zeldas. It was good, but its now time for something FRESH. I don't think trains fit the bill.

Played some Gears of War last night. What an awesome game. Admittedly, I'm not very good at it, but it's just so intense and engaging.
I tried to install it to the hard drive the other night, but my 360 was telling me this disc was unreadable(not so - its new). Then it was locking up on me. I guess I'll just have to play off the disc.
I saw Dead Rising for $20 at wallymart the other day so I picked that up. I played for 20 minutes or so. The only thing that concerns me is being under time constraints. I hate that(I'm looking at you Majoras Mask). I tend to take my time with games. We'll see how it works out.

Nan ran out and got Twilight from the Red Box early Sat. Morning. She read the books and wanted to see the movie. I wouldn't call it a good movie, but it wasn't horrible either. I'm actually curious enough o want to see the future movies.

I don't think I ever mentioned that my family went and saw Coraline in 3D. Very imagtinative movie. I liked it a lot. The 3D was implemented perfectly.

Maybe bacon wrapped cheese stuffed grilled meatballs...



Yes, indeed, my friend.
Thanks for the laugh, Mesh.

I hate meatballs. Yeah, I said it.

I love meatballs. I make great ones for spaghetti. I also love them covered in BBQ sauce. Swedish meatballs are quite tasty as well.

I especially enjoy eating balls of meat on Fridays during Lent while surrounded by very Catholic Mexicans. But that could just be me....
2452  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Battlestar Galactica - comments after viewing season 1 on: March 20, 2009, 02:45:19 PM
I'm afraid to do any internet searching for BG discussions for fear of spoilers. I've also had to avoid the other topic here,for obvious reasons. I finished watching season 1, and have watched the first 2 episodes of season 2.
I freaking(or would that be frakkin'? god, I suck) love this show.
Am I the only one that DOES NOT find #6 hot? She's played as this uber sex symbol, and it doesn't work for me. Hell, I find the little engineer girl more attractive.
I love the grittiness. Totally unexpected. People die! Bad things happen. Serious business.
Odd aside - Anyone else think about how Jamie Bamber has to suppress his accent to play his character? Why would they cast the role with someone with a natural accent if they didn't want it?(Same with House, I suppose)
The episode I just watched (2.2?) If they knew a cylon ship had crashed into the Galactica, why didn't anybody check it out? It was driving me nuts.

What IS the deal with Baltar and #6 anyway? Don't spoil anything, but... up to this point...as far as I can tell...she is all in his head. But how did a cylon get there? How would he know how to imagine it/her? What it/she would say? It confuses me.

Once again... NO FRIGGIN SPOILERS or I will kill you through the interwebnet. I am fully aware that most of you are about to watch the final episode tonight. I am jealous, but enjoying what I am watching, so oh well.

AH! Check that out. IT WORKS! man, you are the total shiznit...or whatever. Thanks a ton. Now I'm off to see how much music i can get off my game cds.
2454  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: Can I rip the music off my TG cd games? on: March 18, 2009, 01:37:47 PM
Hay, thanks for the help. I'll try it tonight.
2455  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Re: Can I rip the music off my TG cd games? on: March 16, 2009, 12:51:19 PM
So how does one make a copy of a cd that isn't even being recognized when placed into the computer?
It shows one 55 byte file that doesn't do anything when I click on it. That's it.
I realize that I probably won't be able to do much. I just thought somebody might have an idea or two.

2456  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Can I rip the music off my TG cd games? on: March 16, 2009, 12:23:17 AM
I would REALLY like to get the music off my Y's I & II and Dungeon Explorer II games, if possible.
I would buy the soundtracks, but can't find them through searching(if they exist at all).
So what is my alternative? Using the game discs themselves forever? I don't like doing that, and I'm afraid they are going to stop working one of these days.
I read that I could use my PC to open the files and save into a new format, but when I put them into the drive nothing happens. 

2457  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Super Game Journal Turbo II - The New Challengers on: March 07, 2009, 12:58:34 PM
beat Mass Effect last night. I freakin' loved that game. The ending was kinda lame, though. Obviously set up for a sequel. I actually want to start up another game, but play as the female Shepard and be a real hard ass with my decisions(I was too nice before). I'm considering getting the DLC, but wonder if it's worth it. Anyone?

I guess I'll get back to Xeno III now. I want to finish this so I can be done with my PS2.
2458  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Star Ocean: The Last Hope news.(56k Warning) on: March 07, 2009, 12:45:34 PM
Johns game times don't count. He has some superhuman time decelerator or something. His game times constantly floor me. I'm normally double or triple what he runs. I honestly don't get it, especially with rpgs. Minus sidequests, shouldn't we all be clocking pretty close to each other?
Oh, uh, I haven't even bought the game yet, but I just had to comment.
2459  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Best RPG of Last Generation? on: March 04, 2009, 08:37:42 AM
Best rpgs of last gen? That IS tough.
My Favs:
Dark Cloud 2
Skies of Arcadia (never played Legends, but I feel like I should)
Tales of the Abyss/Symphonia
Final Fantasy X/XII

VERY difficult to pick the best, but I would probably go with Skies. Put Grandias battle system in there and you'd pretty much have the perfect game.

I'm still playing Xeno III, so it doesn't qualify
DQ VIII was good but needed a better ST
Suiko III needed a better battle system, and V bored me silly
Grandia II is completely overrated. Battles = great. Everything else - eh
never touched a DDS or a Shin whatever game. no interest.
Shadow Hearts sucked due to the wheel of fortune(admittedly, I suck at timed button presses, but I really don't think luck is a good base for a battle system)

2460  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Super Game Journal Turbo II - The New Challengers on: March 02, 2009, 01:51:12 PM
Mass Effect - Played through Virmire
What the hell? Wrex goes bonkers and gets killed. Then I had to choose between Ashley and Kaiden? It happened so fast that I didn't realize I was picking who lives and who dies. I picked Ashley because I figured I was already there anyway. Then Shepard tells Kaiden to "die proud" or something and it registered. Now I'm pissed, and even a little sad.
I'm going to do a few more side quests then head off to Ilos
What a great game this has been. A western rpg with non-linear gameplay that makes sense and doesn't confuse me. Plus characters that I actually care about.
Obviously, the games not perfect. The environments all look too similar. The game needs more music. The overall story is just not that compelling.
Despite the flaws, I actually can see myself playing this again. I NEVER do that.
I hope I haven't ruined myself for jrpgs now, but I'm not sure I can go back after this. I do know that I'll be way more selective.
My son and I continue to play Castle Crashers. It's gotten a  bit tougher. I think I need to spend time replaying earlier levels to build up my guy. OMG its an rpg!
I wish this game had a difficulty setting so I could put it on "pansy"
