Will do!

Played.... a serious amount of God of War III, but have to start over again. Had just gotten out of Hades. I love this game, but then again I'm told I'm violent... :P

You are!

I'm surprised there aren't more comments on this. I played it too, and got slaughtered by the Stalfos, cause apparently I wasn't crouching and attacking in the right place.

Really cool little game though. People just "putting together" something like this always impresses me.

Why would we need to post a review on the Japanese version now when we have one for the English version? Keep in mind our site is written in English, and caters to an English-speaking readership, which for the most part, would be playing their games in a language they actually can read.

What bothers me is why you chose to review Dragon Quest IX in your 'spare time' rather than the-more-relevant-title Strange Journey or even Devil Survivor, games that push the genre forward and not sitting-ducks , unevolving , rigid title like DQ franchise.
What are you talking about?
To be fair, we didn't review the Japanese version of Devil Survivor, which of course is the only "true" version. Let's all go bitch at Sam for only playing the game in English.

I think "more relevant" is a term you're just throwing around for fun, because whether you like it or not, DQ is a bigger deal. DQ release day is practically a holiday in Japan.

Clearly, the discussion isn't what's more relevant overall, it's about what is more *interesting* to you, which is quite different. Honestly, I'm with you in not being a big DQ fan. They stick with certain RPG traditions set in place back in the 80s and for the most part, the series doesn't evolve or try anything new. But again, that's a taste thing. I'm not a fan, but sales figures speak for themselves in this case.

As for a review, it's a question better asked of one of our import reviewers, who, again, do buy these games for themselves, so they're not going to go spend money and time on Game X if they'd rather play Game Y.

Edit: Also, the Bayonetta thing is a horrid comparison. Besides the fact I believe the Japanese version is already in English, you barely need an understanding of the language to play a Devil May Cry-style action game. An RPG is completely different - you can't always just feel your way through it if you don't know the language.

Those are also huge sites compared to us, and while I don't know salary details, I think it's safe to say that the people at 1UP get paid, as in, it's their job, not something they do for free in their spare time. That does make a huge difference.

I'll sit back while you list all of the other volunteer-driven RPG-centric websites out there that have a review up of the game, let alone make a habit of posting import reviews at all.

I know it's brighter and not "dark basement"-friendly, but I'm glad most of you like the look. :P

(One of my "one day goals" for the site is to have multiple user-selected color schemes, which in theory will help people avoid bright (or dark!) colors. But that's probably a long way out.)

It seems as usual this 'exclusive' thing might be meaningless when it comes to FFXIV... too early to say for sure, but that's the impression we got from the press conference:

It's exactly the second thing you mentioned from the looks of it: A whole new world with familiar races. We updated our story with a bit of info post-announcement:

Plus - and God knows why I want to even argue this - "Myspace is dying"? This is news to me. They were an (admittedly annoying) unstoppable force of social networking before, and then News Corp. bought them, so I'm thinking they might be doing okay.

The only issue I have with Facebook sometimes is when people use it like it was Myspace - I loathe Myspace because of all the horrid layouts, and auto-playing music, etc. There's something to be said for giving people the freedom to decorate their page as they see fit, but at the same time, some people just shouldn't be allowed to "design." Strip away most of the crap, and all of the design junk, and it's a fine idea: That's essentially what Facebook is. It's a cleaner and better laid-out Myspace, to a point, but also very nice for keeping in contact with people. I don't even like mentioning the two sites in the same breath.
43  Site Related & More / RPGFan: The Site / Previews are back. on: May 10, 2009, 11:50:47 PM
Lookie: http://www.rpgfan.com/news/2009/195.html

There are no NEW previews (besides Zenonia), but since so many of you guys expressed your concern for us removing them, at least now you can easily access them again.

As for posting new ones, our writing staff is perpetually busy with reviews or other features, so unfortunately we don't have the man (or woman) power to do so currently.

Anyway, hope this helps those of you who were missing it.

I should probably clarify: Twitter is great for news sites and stuff, but not for people LIKE THIS. :P

The prospect of that kind of thing is why I avoided it for awhile. Thing is though, you only get updates from people you *choose* to, so if you're getting bathroom updates, it's only because you wanted to. :P
45  The Rest / General Discussions / Move along, nothing to see... on: May 05, 2009, 11:04:41 PM
I'm sure those of you on the boards tonight noticed a slight spam issue on General. I've removed the posts and banned the offending parties.

Board registration is currently closed, so I apologize to any potential new members; it will re-open shortly, we just want to be safe.
