To branch off from the eroge (which the following is part of):  Japanese graphic adventures vs. Western graphic adventures. 

This one doesn't matter. Both are good, and whichever country makes a good one is a win for gamers.

The only difference I would highlight is there tends to be more humour in Western ones (Monkey Island, Sam and Max etc)

And more eroge in Japanese ones. ;)

In the end, it really all traces back to the predominant Western view (particularly in the US) of sexually explicit materials as porn, and therefore contemptible and devoid of any possible value other than as masturbation material.  Which is, well, narrowminded in my opinion, but that's how it is.  The recent popularity of anime in the Western world does seem to be helping the eroge localization industry to some extent, however.

What people don't understand is that in good old America, sex is very popular. Just don't talk about it. The "righteous" people will rant but so does everyone in America. Doesn't mean sex isn't everywhere. The Porn industry is a billion dollar industry in the US for a reason. Sex sells in the US, just don't take about.

Which make the US odd, other countries complain about volience. For example, The Witcher in the US, no one cares about the violence but the nudity has to be censored. *rollseyes*

Or grand theif auto, no sex scene allowed or else its a big national news scadal but  what about the excessive violence of the game.........

Anyone else love the music for this game. My favorite has to be Blue Beating, the song playing during character selection.

And I do love Noel, who doesn't love a long legged girl in uniform duel wielding guns. :)

I'm confused. I only get the perverted meaning of that message. What on earth is the non-creepy message of this? How could anyone have though this was ok to put up?

Edit: thanks, Dios GX. I would have never gotten that they were talking about kids whining in the car. My mind is far too in the gutter.
440  Media / Miscellaneous Games / New Mechwarrior Announced!!! on: July 13, 2009, 08:00:29 PM


Interview link with the creator of battletech is in the link above.

I've very excited about this, I've played all the mechwarrior games and this is dream come true. First starcraft 2 and now mechwarrior. Not to mention Final Fantasy 13 will be out soon enough. I'll be pretty busy soon. :)

That's actually the best thing ever.

Funny, after hearing for years about how great ff7 was I finnaly played it on an emulator and found that I really hate Aeris and was happy when she died.

Yet, I love Rinoa. Go figure. People are werid.

I think the reason I liked Rinoa so much is that she seemed like a real life young energentic girl. I think we all know at least one girl in real life like her and most likely several.

And made countless baby angels commit suicide.

Not to mention the Kittens. All those poor dead kittens! *Cries*

I'm not quite sure this counts as a good explanation. Ya see, I used to be the same way. Western rpgs suck! Then I played Mass Effect and completely changed my tune. It wasn't hideously boring and confusing like the ones I tried in the past. I actually had some idea as to what I should be doing! Plus, the game is 3rd person w/ a simple battle system.

I still think mass effect sucks, it was hideously boring to me. :P I still haven't found a game to emulate baldur's gate but dragon age looks like it has potential to do just that.

Most western RPG I just hate. The only ones that stand out in my mind are Fallout series (especially 3 which has made me not want to play the others) and Baldurs gate (which I'm playing, again, right now).

JRPG, at least for me, tend to have great stories but no replay value. Western RPGs tend to do better with this. Baldur's gate has multiple classes you can play as and many people just replay the game just to use different party combinations. The random party dialouge is certainly a fan favorite for BG fans.

Mind you, I'm extremely picky guy so feel free to take my words with a grain of salt.

Honestly, the only RPGs I expect to get challenge from is Action RPGs like Kingdom Hearts or something. There's no real way to make a Turn-based RPG "difficult" because most of what is happening is being determined by some calculator, and half the time the difficulty is only there to pad out the game by forcing you to grind your characters until you can beat something.

Nocturne says sup.

Nocturne is more frustrating then anything. But then thats why most RPGs are not diffucult in the first place.

Valkyrie Profile 1 and 2? When where they difficult? Well, I supose they are harder then other JRPGs.
446  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Why do I not understand all the fuss about Chrono Trigger DS? on: April 28, 2009, 01:11:47 AM
I've never play a JRPG for a challenge. I play them for the story, the adventure. And Chrono trigger just has so many memorable moments. Such as one of my favorite boss battles against Magus. That's a legend, and I still remember it. I love Magus' theme but then again, that's probably a big part of the reason I found that battle so incredible.

That's even more ridicious, the textures aren't nearly as bad as Tomb Raider II.

448  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New tri-Ace RPG: End of Eternity on: April 27, 2009, 02:37:58 AM
Wow, a sci-fi JRPG were the protagonist is using guns instead of swords. I'm shocked to say the least. :P
449  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIII Demo on: April 27, 2009, 02:29:20 AM
That's just being very nit picky. Its like says, look how short the demo is, FFXIII is going to a very short game! Its a demo and its been stated in several interviews that there will be many graphics and performance improvements in the final release.

And frankly, most people would never notice those textures while playing the demo. If fact, I can just barely notice them while I staring at the screenshots. Sorry, but bad rocks isn't enough to dismiss the impressiveness of the graphics. With a little polish (which it certainly will get, this is a final fantasy game after all), FF13 will definitely be giving MGS4 and Killzone 2 a run for their money.

Also, the gameplay certainly looks to be the fastest of any FF ever. The review was correct, it reminds me of the speed of a star ocean game. Almost.

Well as long as the plot doesn't require the protagonist to blow up the final boss with a giant laser it should all be good. 

What game was that? I would not be surprise if a game actually pull that off.

Considering how good the AI was in FF12 I say we have nothing to worry about.

AI controlled party members where not Persona 3's problem. It was the fact that the AI while decent would still make stupid choses.

I'd prefer to have something like the gambit system so I have more control on what the AI did.
