It's just the ones that you start.

No, it will be the year of Dreamcast 2. 9/9/09, motherfuckers!

Haha!  I just got a new TV, and the Dreamcast is one of the things that got plugged into it.  Big screen Crazy Taxi FTW in my book.

Criminally Ridiculous, Asinine, Pathetic Freestyle Exercise in Stealing Time

And have I ever said anything to y'all about games like the now defunct Acrophobia?  Because I bet anyone posting in this thread would like them.  Apologies if I have - I forget where I've pimped that thing.  There's Acro Challenge, Acrowars, Acro Phoni, and probably some others.  Basically, they give everyone in an online room an acronym, everyone makes up something that it could stand for, and then everyone votes on whose was best.

Actually, for once, I tried to offer something constructive. :(

Well how did you expect me to catch something as out of character as that? ;)

I've finished EVERY GAME EVER.  I also have the largest dick here.  I've had sex with another man and I've met Val Kilmer.

Top that.


Oh yeah?  Well I went into the future and brought back games that haven't even come out yet and finished them too!

But I haven't had sex with a man... and I don't plan to... so I will cede the victory to you.

I love you John.

And lucky for him, someone else does, too. :D

I don't want to alienate readers here... but seeing how everyone both on and off the staff disagrees with Gen Eric, why is anyone still bothering with answering, arguing, contradicting, or whatever you want to call it?  Eric thinks one thing, we all (unless I'm forgetting someone) think another.  He's explained himself, and I think that even though we think he's wrong, we comprehend what he is saying... even if we can't make his logic make sense in our heads.  And vice versa.  

Eric feels strongly that the site was wrong not to award any Wii game a GotY award, the site feels that we were correct to do so.  Although we appreciate our readers' opinions, we are under no obligation to agree with them, to change our coverage to suit them, or (to be brutally honest) even to justify ourselves to them.  To paraphrase a wise man, you can satisfy all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you can't satisfy all of the people all of the time.  Even if you're Ron Jeremy or Jenna Jameson.  (OK, so I added that last part myself - this was getting too serious.)  

If most readers are happy, they'll stick around, and hopefully tell their friends and click on ads and such.  If someone doesn't, they'll probably raise a big stink, and then either get over it or get out.  They'll probably tell their friends as well, but unless they're a total psycho (and although Gen Eric seems passionate, I'm not getting the total psycho vibe from him), that's as far as it'll go.

FWIW, I don't actually think Eric's trolling.  Trolling is (to me) to say things you don't believe with the deliberate purpose of being inflammatory.  He seems to believe what he's saying most wholeheartedly.  Now, as to why he would stick around a site where he disagrees so strongly with everyone who writes for the site AND everyone who reads the site, I don't know, and I don't care to resort to speculation (which always amounts to either overjustification or ad hominem attacks).

So... how about we all drop it.  (And that includes any more posts from anyone saying "but I tried to drop it!")

(Oh, and now you see why my nickname at the last site I wrote for was Grandpa.)

Yeah, the second PMD didn't change too much in that regard.  There were some improvements, including some simplification in the way you recruited new folks and in the way you switched party members, but I think the overall pacing was pretty much the same as the first.
2154  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Entire Life Completed RPG List on: January 12, 2009, 04:29:05 PM
Some people say there is an optional dungeon available after you complete it. I heard the design depends on the choices you made during the game.

Nicely played - you won the fantastic prize of an lol from me at work. :D
2155  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Entire Life Completed RPG List on: January 12, 2009, 01:26:53 PM
I'm working my way through Life right now.  Sadly, I don't think I'll get any replay value out of it, but to say that there are thousands of hours of playtime for most characters is an understatement.  Of course, I'll finish it someday, but I'm not giving away the ending. :D

(Or in other words, I have no idea how many I've played, but I'm sure many folks here would have lists that dwarf mine.)

(Ooh, I can see myself having too much fun with this.)

A big +1 from me for citing the greatest website ever.  Thanks for saving me the trouble. :D

I just noticed the conspicuous absence of Tooker's list.

<eeyore>Thanks for noticing me</eeyore>

I didn't feel right putting up a list of my top five for the year, as I mostly focused on older games.  I think of myself as kind of the staff "cleanup crew," especially for PSP.  Here are the six RPGs I played that were released in 2008, and the scores I'd give them/gave them in my review:

Patapon: 80%
Opoona: 66%
Disgaea DS: 88%
Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Darkness: 75%
Fable II: 90%
Zoids Assault: 55%

So out of six games, four had scores that were at least OK, and one of those four was heavily debated as far as its worthiness for coverage by the site (Patapon), and I didn't feel like they made a good "top five" anyway.  Here's what I'd say about the 4 I liked:

- Despite its faults, I quite enjoyed Fable II - the whole "make money while you aren't playing" thing worked great for a business traveler like me (when I got home every weekend, there was a big pile of cash waiting to be spent on enhancing my real estate empire).  I didn't have any fun playing as an evil character, oddly enough, but I attribute that only in part to the game.  I don't usually make a good badguy.

- I've had a lot of fun with Disgaea on both the PSP and the DS - to the point that I've avoided buying Disgaea 3 on the PS3 because I'm currently way overbooked on the gaming front.  They did a great job with using both screens on the DS - the best job I can think of, actually.  Also, the development cartridge they sent us had some extra features that helped me speed through the game, like making you level up at least one level every time you kill someone, which was just plain fun.

- Patapon was a lot of fun, and definitely unique on both the gameplay and graphical fronts.  For a fan of rhythm games and RPGs, I thought it was a must-have (especially since it was cheap from day 1).  It wasn't perfect, and the RPG elements are pretty slim, but it was fun, and sometimes that's enough.

- Pokemon Mystery Dungeon was OK.  Not bad, not awesome.  I'd be depressed by any year where a game of its quality made my top five list, but I didn't feel like it stole a bunch of hours from my life that I'll never get back.

I always hated when you had an enemy that exploded on death.  Fire enchanted, I think it was?  Anyway, it stunk when they'd kill you by dying.  Lightning enchanted sucks too... but everyone felt the same way about them.
