Nah man, you just don't like how I got that piece of truth across. No need to stress over it.

You realize people are allowed to have a different opinion?  Why do you have to take it personally when they don't?  Between not liking giant tittied women or not liking the FF13 series or whatever else...you just take it really, really personally.

Objection! I find your tone offensive! *thats a joke, I <3 you.

^ Different strokes for different folks.

I know a lot of the guys on here, myself included, have mentioned before that the usual GIANT BOOBS ALL UP IN YOUR FACE!!! does nothing for them.

Heresy! *just joking. lol

Funny, I really enjoyed FF13-2. I love the music, the gameplay, the time travel aspect. It was an easy game but very fun to play regardless. I even enjoy the story, especially the event triggers where you can select dialogue. Wish this was included in future FF games but I doubt it.

And no, I didn't mind the tonal shift between silly and serious in the game. Its not for everyone I guess? As for Sarah being protagonist, actually, I always hoped she would be playable in FF13 so I was excited to play her in the sequel.

Then again, I loved snow in FF13 so apparently I'm insane. :(

How can someone be this wrong?!  /salty

I have three words for you: COM/COM/COM

Err, is that suppose to be a bad thing?

Which is a very odd statement to make since its a Canadian company that made it. I'm sure they had no intention of making the ideal American RPG.

You love ME, we got it. So do I but lets try not to blow it out of proportion. I'm not even sure its the great WRPG of last gen. Wasn't that skyrim? lol In all seriousness, I'd say Dragon Age Origins was the great WRPG of last gen. I've replayed that game more than any other game.

As I said, I dislike ME1. The planets you visit were vast, empty, and boring and the missions therefore dragged on. The pace of the game at the end picked up at Virmire and the end run was quite enjoyable. Overall, I had much more fun with Dragon Age Origins and immediately went back and started another character in DA: O. I've never replayed ME1. I've tried but gotten bored with it and dropped it.

That said, ME 2 and ME 3 are great improvements over the original. I enjoy the combat a lot more and I felt both games did a better job developing your companions. I wish they kept loyalty missions in ME 3. For me, ME2 was the best. All my favorite companions and most of my favorites scenes are in that game.

Good lord....so...tacky......
It's worse amongst a group of, y'know, adequately dressed people.  I don't care if you like sexy characters in your game, I have no problem with a sexy design, but goddamn that's trying too hard.

Should I feel bad for enjoying her tacky design? I suppose I should. I'm a bad man. :(

So...why does no one ever mention how mind numbingly terrible the healing/re-try mechanics are in this game?

Blood Packs pretty much vanish from drops once you down Father Gassy and currently cost about 7200 Blood for a full refill. So anytime you want to try learning a boss you have to take a 15 minute grinding break (due to the convoluted paths between way too distant checkpoints) between every major attempt; completely wrecking the learning opportunity. (Not even counting if you need more Quicksilver Bullets.)

It's like they took everything good about the Souls Flasks, chucked it out, and magnified all the bad. XP

Am I missing something here? Because this is pretty much a deal breaker for me at the moment.

Rejoice since Dark Souls 3 has the glorious return of the estus flask!

I think most players don't complain about because they grind all day every day. Its what you do in this game as a long term player.

In terms of immersion, anything Looking Glass (inspired) naturally wins, after all they invented the immersive sim genre. So System Shock 2, Deus Ex, Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines all rank up among my favorite RPGs (Ultima Underworld 1&2 and Arx Fatalis are also really nice) and overall the most immersive games I've played alongside the Thief series and few other titles like that.

The most moving experience would have to be the ending of Planescape: Torment. Persona 3's ending also kind of came out the left field and left an impact.

ME is the Great American RPG. 
Not by a long shot.

i've never understood he point of a fps rpg.

Fast based combat combined with the roleplaying of a western RPG? At least, its why I enjoy mass effect. Though to be fair, I dislike the first mass effect and find ME2 and 3 great improvements.

LOL, well nowadays they don't have to worry about persona series having fans outside of japan. Not after persona 3.

Of course, I'll mention Valkyrie Profile 2's final boss, Lezard Valeth.


So many great lines

"Know that thou are truly fortunate, you are able to witness the birth of a new god!"

"Soon Lenneth Vlakyrie and I will become as one. You shall be witness to this marvelous happening. And once the deed is done, i shall destroy you all."

"Pitiable fools, does your folly never end? Very well, you are the first blasphemers to defy the new god. You shall burn in the fires of Hel for all eternity!"

"Lenneth Valkyrie, whom I sought, is no more. And it was you who killed her. ITS WAS YOOOOOUUUUU!

""If you stood with me you could rule the world under me. Why? Why do you oppose me?"

"I grant you the rights accorded to an enemy of the gods. You will live from now and forever, in an endless cycle of rebirth. Condemned in each life to be hated, feared, scorned, punished, and obliterated."

And, of course, who could forget THAT insane laugh:


Liam O'Brien is an amazing voice actor.

I think we'll just have to agree to disagree. lol I might be SRW obsessive though so my opinion is biased.

I love Z2 though that might partly be because it has many of my favorite Mecha. Heck, even though I hate Gundam 00, the 00 gundams are some of my favorite Z2 mecha. Go go Z2 all gundam teams. lol
26  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: 13 Sentinels: Vanillaware's Hot 2D Mecha Action on: September 19, 2015, 04:42:49 PM
WOW, love at first sight. Altus + Vanillaware + Mecha? Take my money already! I don't need to know anything else, just give me that game NOW!

The trailer makes me excited to hear the soundtrack for this game. Vanillaware games always have awesome soundtracks.

"I may or may not have lost faith in Japan's Giant Robot genre; thanks SRW!"

WHAT? You mean SRW games have kept your love of Mecha alive. Anything else is heresy. :P


LOL, you do look like that woman from gone girl. lol Must have made watching that movie surreal. lol

Valkyrie Profile 2 is my favorite PS2 game. I love the music, the characters, and the RPG elements. Its a wonderful full package.

I'd have to mention a lot of Bioware games since they all tend to have wonderful single player stories. Everything from Baldurs Gate to Dragon Age Origins.

Ugh, just got the game and sadly this seems the rare time I have to use a gamepad. :( The mouse controls are horrible with no way to change them. Ah well, at least the game runs well. For once a good working Port. lol
29  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, Rated M on: August 20, 2015, 12:48:24 PM
I play most of my games with keyboard and mouse including dark souls. I will probably do the same with FF type zero when I get it. I do have a gamepad for my PC but its rare I feel the need to use it.

I wish someone would make a SRW like indie game with original Mecha. Though I know its not going to happen because that would take a lot of work. Designing cool mecha, setting up interesting maps, writing good story....yeah, its not happening. But I can still dream.
