2686  The Rest / General Discussions / Favorite plants. on: August 05, 2008, 11:08:55 AM
What the hell?!
I don't come to rpgfan for a topic on plants. I come here to get away from the plants for a few minutes.
For those not in the know, I'm a horticulture guy. It's what I do for a living. I'm rather fond of plants. I just don't ever think to make a topic about it here.
For the record my favorite plant(s) are ornamental grasses. Easy to grow. No real upkeep involved. Dramatic display in masses, especially in the fall.
aaaanyway...

Quote from: "Losfer"
All systems this gen are disapointing in one way or another.  I love my Wii, but God damn...  I want some new games.  I can name a few games for the 360 and PS3 that I am excited about, but NOTHING for the Wii.

I know Nintendo's a company and all and making money is why they make games, but fuck, release some real games please.  You have your Wii Fit and Wii Sports and Wii Music to make money with...  Can we have a new Zelda game?

...And can third party companies release something besides fucking Petz Babyz Pool Party?

I think the Wii itself is a good example of this. For the longest time I wanted one, but couldn't find it. For months I complained about not being able to find one. Now we finally have one, and I am left wondering what the fuss was all about. I should have bought a damn 360!
I think all sorts of people are falling for the hype on this thing.
I will admit now that the popularity of it is getting on my nerves. I recall listening to a radio show, where the hosts have never talked about video games that I am aware of. Then suddenly one morning the female host was asking the male host "which game is your favorite? Golf or boxing?"
As if the sports pack was the only game(s) available for the system.
I actually think there all sorts of people buying this thing that will never buy another game.
Hell, I brought my son over to my aunts house(shes 70 or so) for kidsitting and there it was, sitting on their couch.
I think I'm turning into the guy who hates something just because its popular, but all these bandwagon jumpers are irritating the hell out of me. I hope I can do a 180 on it someday.

I don't remember if I posted about it or not, but I actually did finish Metroid: Zero Mission. I beat games so rarely that I feel pretty darn good when I do.
I liked that game a lot.
TOTA: I am in the absorption Gate -
Code:
I am saved at the point where the party gets split up. I'm pretty sure I'm almost done.

I'm really going to miss these characters when it's all over. The story has been a bit weird, but the characterizations have been fantastic. I've enjoyed this game more than any rpg in several years.

On a side note, I've been watching Nan play Mario Galaxy, and have been really impressed with it overall. I'm seeing things in this game that I have never seen done anywhere before.
I just want them(who? anyone) to make a more mature/cooler/my style game with these mechanics. My hopes aren't very high, though.

I just remembered the other dude I was going to mention in my previous post.
Kurenai
Wasn't he a friend of Thirds? Pretty much just as confrontational, too.
If I recall correctly, they both spent a LOT of time ragging on FFX.
Between the two of them, we had some pretty epic threads. I always enjoyed reading them, regardless of who I agreed with.
2691  The Rest / General Discussions / Oh snap, my 2000th post! on: July 29, 2008, 10:45:26 AM
I know I wasn't one of the first 50, but 63 is pretty close. And what I am about to ask of you is very important to me, being an Atheist and all.

Could you ban GoD from this forum? I would really appreciate it. The dude made 4 posts then left, never to be heard from again. The nerve.
; - )


Running through the member list, it's amazing how many people sign up, post once or twice, then never come back.
I'm also seeing names of people that I had forgotten about and wonder what happened to them.
2692  The Rest / General Discussions / The Nostalgia Thread. on: July 29, 2008, 10:26:48 AM
I actually kinda miss the mailbag. Odd.
I suppose I've been around since 2000 or earlier.
I wonder what happened to General Mortars? Without him around, I think I may very well be the oldest member here, at 33.
I remember selling all my great Saturn games to Ogami Itto(Mike Bracken). I regret that immensely, but I guess I really needed cash at the time.
In regards to Nicole, I've got you all beat. I bought a Grandia II t-shirt from her that she had gotten at some E3 show. I wonder where she is now.
I miss Galactic, too, although I think I've seen a few random posts from him recently.
Third was awesome. I may not have agreed with him on a lot of things, but his posts were always good reads.
Yeah, this is the only gaming board that I still post on, if a bit irregularly.
The only other site/message board that I really liked was the GIA. I still miss that place.

Tales of the Abyss - Over 60 hours now, with all characters around lvl 50.
I am at Mt. Roneal.
At this point in the game you would think that I would have a good grasp of the battle system and its intricacies, but I mainly just button mash with the occasional arte thrown in. Seems to work ok. I never quite figured out how to use the colored rings on the ground properly. I seem to trigger them by accident sometimes, though. I'm just not in to any kind of customization.
2694  Media / Single-Player RPGs / FFIV DS Impressions Thread on: July 24, 2008, 08:54:04 AM
I made sure I had headphones on when I started this up. The music is wonderful.
I didn't really get anywhere yet, but my first overall impression is great. the graphics look really good, Especially the enemies.
I'm very impressed with the dialog so far. Well written with decent voice acting, too.
Unfortunately, I need to finish Abyss before doing anything else, so that's all for now.
2695  Media / Single-Player RPGs / FFIV DS Impressions Thread on: July 23, 2008, 01:07:58 PM
Just got back from picking it up. I've been pretty excited for this ever since it was announced.
I should have brought my DS with me to work and played some over lunch.
Oh well. I'll start it up tonight, then offer my thoughts.
2696  Media / Single-Player RPGs / What dead series(or mostly dead) do you miss the most? on: July 22, 2008, 08:54:42 AM
There is a serious lack of Phantasy Star in this thread. I want a proper game. No on-line crap.
Skies of Arcadia demands a sequel. I really can't believe this hasn't happened yet.
Like many others, I SO want a Lunar 3.
Another(good) Secret of Mana would be nice, too.
2697  The Rest / General Discussions / RPGFan Gaming Journal: The Road to Infinity on: July 21, 2008, 04:04:18 PM
Tales of the Abyss - I keep thinking i've got to be near the end, but the game just keeps going. The clock is around 55 hours. Characters are around lvl 45 and I am
Code:
off to the meggiora highlands again to do something to a sephiroth tree or something. This after the peace treaty was signed and we stopped the core from vibrating.

I have really enjoyed this game. The story is pretty wacked out but the characters have made it all worth it.
I still want it to end, though.

I went back to Metroid: ZM to try and beat mother brain again, and finally did after several more tries. I played through all the stuff after that and made it to the Metal Ridley thing. Died a few times and gave up. I'll try again tonight.

Hooked up the Wii to our DSL line and DLed Super Metroid, Super Castlevania(not sure why, on this one) and Dr. Mario from the WiiWare. Any WiiWare games anyone would recommend?

I am A GOD at badminton. Seriously.


I challenge you, US vs UK....TO THE DEATH.


No!...To the Pain!
; - )
I love badminton(always thought it was spelled differently. Stupid silent letters) Too bad I only get to play about once a year.

I'm not really big on watching sports. Ok, I don't watch them at all. But for some reason I always watch the Olympics when they come on. Less commitment, I suppose.
I do have to say that it irritates me when people refer to a sports team that they enjoy watching as "my" team. As if you own them, or have any actual stake in what they do. Never quite understood this.

I don't really play any sports either. I'd shoot some hoops if I had a hoop, but I would not want one in my yard.

I enjoy riding my bike, but not in any competitive sporting kind of way.

What a great movie. I thought Begins was pretty good, but this is so much better. The whole thing just felt so right. I don't think I need to repeat al the things everyone has already said.

The only problem I had was the transition of Harvey Dent into Two-Face. It just wasn't believable that he would do the things he did. I imagine his descent taking place over a longer period of time. I suppose the nature of the movie wouldn't allow it.

Regardless, a damn fine movie.
To think that I just saw Spiderman 3 a couple weeks ago, and thought that was pretty much crap.

On another note, I was actually a bit shocked by how violent the movie was. I noticed all sorts of kids in the audience who SO did not belong there. When the hell are people going to learn that comic book does not equal kids movie? Do a little research mom and dad.
Probably the same idiots who think all video games are for kids. *sigh*

I was a big TG CD geek and played a lot of games that no one else cared about.
I've mentioned Cosmic Fantasy II and Dungeon Explorer II on this board numerous times over the years only to hear nothing but crickets. DGII has one of the best soundtracks of any game ever, and CF2's ending was so heart-breaking that I loved the game despite numerous flaws.
Exile I & II were fun games from our buddies at Working Designs.

Lagoon was a cool game. I DO recall it having great music.
I owned PD saga, played through it about halfway, then sold it, along with a bunch of other Saturn games(SFIII included). Yeah, I'm an idiot.
I liked Paladins Quest for a bit. Then it got too hard. Plus the magic system was crappy.
7th Saga I tried to play numerous times, but it was just too damn hard.
Crusader of Centy for the Gen was a fun little Zelda clone.

I even tried to play Tecmos Secret of the Stars. Must have been an rpg drought or something.
I have a feeling not enough people played Soulblazer or Illusion of Gaia either.
Oh, the nostalgia....
