FFXII - Haste + Berserk = awesome!
Quite a bit of stuff going on. I played through the Stillshrine.
Beat the first boss pretty easily, but had a hell of a time with the Esper boss. It kept putting my characters to sleep! Add in all the minions and it took me forever to beat it. It came down to keeping everyone hasted and Balthier berserked. Then I went back to Mt. Bur and got in a fight with one of the Judges. He was pretty tough but I somehow managed to beat him. Now I'm supposed to go all the way to Archades

Instead of continuing with the story, I am going after some hunts.
All my characters are around lvl 29 right now.
I have no clue how to use Quickenings, so I never use them. What the hell are you supposed to do after initiating it? Anyone feel like enlightening an idiot?

Good job, CW, beating Garuda without the berries. I got my ass kicked the first time I fought it. BTW, I have no idea why that would be a spoiler.

FFXII - I am now in the Miriam(that the name?) Stillshrine, after some fancy sword. I wish I had Haste. Hopefully, it won't be too long before it finally makes an appearance.

I am at the point in my life where I barely have time to play an rpg once, let alone 2 or 3 times. There are far too many good games out there for me to play, than to go back and play something I've already been through. I miss enough good games as it is.
Anyone wanna spot me some cheese?
2689  Media / The Soundroom / RPG soundtrack questions on: March 01, 2007, 01:16:09 PM
Most everything that needs to be said has already been covered, but I feel like chiming in anyway.
DR's got it right with the Castlevanias. Great tunes. Still havent played Curse yet, though. I need to pick that up.

Y's Y's Y's - I have all sorts of Y's cds but the original soundtrack to Y's I & II remains my favorite. Y's III was quite good as well.

I agree on FFXII. While the music doesn't outright offend me, it is certanly nothing memorable. My fav FF ST's were IV & VI.

The Chrono games have great music. I prefer Trigger over Cross.

I stopped playing Suiko V due to boredom. The music didn't do much for me either. I can't recall a single tune.

No one else ever brings it up, but I love the ST to Dungeon Explorer II for the TGCD. The game didn't do much for me, but I still listen to the music after all these years. Great stuff.
Same with Gates and Lords of Thunder, if rock is your thing.

There's been very little good music in games lately. My personals faves of tyhe last few years are Skies of Arcadia, Dark Cloud 2, and Okami.

Still reading the first Thomas Covenant book. I am about halfway through, and it HAS improved. It's starting to feel like a genuine fantasy book now. I Still cant stand how whiny Thomas is, though.

I don't really care about the subject at hand. I just wanted to commend you for your topic title. If only more people would come to such a conclusion, no matter how they got there.

I don't understand all the love for this series. I played through about half of the first game and had to stop. While the settings are great, that godawful judgement ring completely ruined the game for me. To leave everything up to chance button presses just completely turned me off. I can see using such a mechanism for bonus type stuff, but not for the whole game. UGH.

FFXII - Played through the Henne Mines and beat Tiamat last night. I expected Tiamat to kiick my ass all over the place, but I beat him/it pretty handily. Back into the jungle I go. Most of my characters are around lvl 25. I've put in about 45 hours.
2694  The Rest / General Discussions / 4# lanruoJ emaG on: February 06, 2007, 10:38:47 AM
FFXII - Finished the Tomb, went through a bunch of story stuff, and am now back in Rabanastre. I'm supposed to go find some people south of the Giza plains, but I want to do some hunts.
While I just got the Gigas esper, I wonder if I wlll ever use it. I haven't done anything with the quickenings yet. Not sure if I even understand how they work.
2695  The Rest / General Discussions / Non-RPG interest. on: February 06, 2007, 10:32:35 AM
I still primarily play rpgs like the FF games and such. I'm not sure why, as they take me forEVER to get through.
I really enjoy adventure games like the Zeldas, Okami, Dark Cloud 2, Metroid, etc.
Castlevania games have always been favorites. Too bad I don't own a DS or a PSP, though.
I like playing racing and puzzles games with my wife. I still bust out F-Zero for the occassional rush of adrenaline.
I like action games, but I mostly suck at them. I play stuff like God of War and Metal Gear on easy mode. Much more fun for me. I love Resident Evil 4, but it is too hard without an easy mode. I suck.

For starters, I don't have a PSP.
Second, I actually still have my TG CD, along with a copy of the japanese version of Rondo of Blood.
I also still have my copy of SOTN.
I am not going to buy a psp just for the 3d "enhanced" version of Rondo.
That being said, this IS great news for those who never got the chance to play it.

Man, I am an idiot.
Just when I'm starting to figure this game out, I do something really stupid.
Last night I wandered around the sandsea area for about an hour and a half just looking for treasure and leveling everybody up. I see the big orange fireball looking thing, but stupidly ignore it's presence(because the color of it's bar indicated that it was passive). Then one of my characters attacks the big orange fireball looking thing(salamander?) This thing then retaliates and obliterates my entire party as I try to run away. You see, I normally keep the attack gambit on "nearest visible". If I had any kind of brain in my head I would have changed it to "party leaders target" as soon as I spotted that orange thing. I suck at gaming.
Funny thing is that I love this game even more for demanding this of me. Nothing wrong with having to think while gaming.

FFXII - Played through  the Sandsea. Made it to the entry of Raithwells(sp?) Tomb. Got my ass kicked by some flying bird monster thing. I powered up a bit, made some adjustments, etc. This sucks mostly because while the game was saved the first time I got here, it doesn't do it again. No save crystal either. I had to march all the way back to the save crystal at the beginning of the area. Now I'm going to have to march all the way back to fight the thing again. Why did it save the first time, but not thereafter? Stupid.

About 120 pages or so into Lord Fouls Bane(see sig).
This has been..."interesting" so far. Donaldson is going to great lengths to make Covenant the ultimate Anti-hero. This is going to sound harsh, but I'm already tired of reading about Leprosy. I know that's what makes this different than other fantasy books, but I hope it evens out as the book(s) go on.

After all these years I finally saw The Thing. Pretty cool movie. Good atmosphere and creature effects.
