1996  Media / Miscellaneous Games / A new GTA game... on: July 15, 2008, 05:37:37 PM
1997  The Rest / General Discussions / Sony Press Conference on: July 15, 2008, 04:11:24 PM
Well, I thought this one was WAY better than Nintendo and Microsoft's press conferences. There wasn't really any shockers like FFXIII coming to 360, but I was never bored and the LBP thing was really cool instead of using generic charts for their sales figures etc...

That, and being the R&C fanboy I am, the announcement of Quest for Booty was awesome. $14.99 for a new game, count me in. There were plenty of other great games shown too. Especially Resistance 2, which looked amazing.

Underwhelming. Not a single thing I'd give two shits about. Wii's now officially a waste of my money.

Another Nintendo paperweight/doorstop in my home now.

You took the words right out of my mouth. I thought MS Press Conference yesterday was kinda boring, but this blew it out of the water. Worst conference EVER (or at least since I started watching these a few years ago).

Let's be honest, the main reason the PS3 fans are so up-in-arms about this isn't because of possible delays, or even quality hits (which is ludacris, btw), these are just silly arguements to hide the reality that Final Fantasy XIII has become the one of the final justifications for owning a PS3, only to find that this arguement (either to the self, or two others) is suddenly made moot by a mutli-platform release.

I'm sorry to be blunt, but at least for many out there, it is a fairly common reaction. I've been there too: burned by companies and hardware that I trusted, or found myself in the minority-end of a tech war, and felt abandoned by some of the last holdouts.

FFXIII is, truly, the last great PS3 exclusive. Nothing comes close in the RPG community, and even among the general gaming community as a whole, it has been hearlded as one of the final rays of hope. You don't have to love Final Fantasy, or even like it, to be burned by this latest twist. The PS3 is running fairly strong, but after this... what's left? A whole slu of PSP and DS games... that's what.

What can Sony possibly do to take people's eyes away from the elephant in the room?

Three words cross my mind: GOD OF WAR. I still can't wait for the third one. Whatever Team Ico is working on should be pretty awesome as well because ICO and SotC were dominant. I also am waiting on my R & C sequel and Resistance 2 & Killzone 2 look sweet. There's still plenty of awesome exclusive stuff, RPG or not. Disgaea 3, Valkyria Chronicles, and WKS look promising, but they keep getting down played because they aren't FFXIII.
2000  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Star Ocean 4 being exclusive to the 360? on: July 14, 2008, 10:37:19 PM
Just watched the new trailer, and this games looks BEAUTIFUL. Can't wait.
2001  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Pontificating Sega's future RPG offerings on: July 14, 2008, 08:44:22 PM
I personally am eagerly anticipating the US release of Valkyria Chronicles. The game looks sweet.

I think he deserves a GirlScout Thin Mint Blizzard from Dairy Queen.

Agreed, those are amazing.
2003  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Holy Crap. Final Fantasy XIII for Xbox 360 on: July 14, 2008, 07:01:57 PM
Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction was the reason I finally picked up my PS3 last year because I love that series. Of course I also really wanted MGS4 and picked up DMC4, Uncharted, NGS, and GTA IV.

Anyway, I'll probably still be getting the PS3 version of FFXIII unless for some ungodly reason the 360 version turns out to be better (like the DLC thing MS keep pulling with games, most recently Fallout 3).

2005  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Holy Crap. Final Fantasy XIII for Xbox 360 on: July 14, 2008, 04:10:40 PM
Well I watched the whole conference live and it was easily the worst conference I have watched since I started watching them 4 years ago. FFXIII was the only exciting thing that happened, and it took FAR to long.
2006  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Holy Crap. Final Fantasy XIII for Xbox 360 on: July 14, 2008, 03:05:41 PM
Sony has got to be shitting themselves right now.

Quote from: "Shiguma"

One thing I forgot to mention though, which I personally don't mind, but I know it's a pet peeve of a few board members: There's about 90-120 minutes worth of dialogue and story sequences before the first battle.

That sounds like torture. I hate it when games do that *looks at SO3*.

P3's music was much better.

From what I have heard so far, I agree.

Went and saw Hellboy 2 this weekend. It was pretty awesome.

PSU is worse compared PSO to me for many reasons.

1. The music and voice acting was awful.

2. It became a button-masher instead of the time attacks from the first game (which I liked).

3. The awful episodic story is one of the worst ideas ever.

4. Like Eusis said, finding rare items in PSO was dominant and there really wasn't any in PSU.
