.hack games were generally boring as shit, because they took the narrative for one game and spread it out among three or four, with pointless padding and inane gameplay.

Quoted for truth. The sites you had to unlock with Virus Cores definitely qualified as needless padding.

I wasn't particularly fond of the first .hack series, since you're basically paying full price four times for what could have very easily been one game. I heard the //GU series is better, though, but I haven't played them.

Beat this recently, and I don't really understand people's complaints about the ending.

The Shining Force GBA remake provides more story as incentive for using certain characters in battle, and in a game with a large playable cast, that's a definite appeal for changing up your party makeup often.

Even if Xillia is Europe-only at least the PS3 isn't region-coded for PS3 games. I do hope they don't pull a Tales of Destiny and deny us part two of the story in Englsih.
Tales of Destiny 2 had a shitty story anyway.

A bad story does not necessarily a bad game make.

I think the voice acting was more an issue with writing than acting, particularly during the "laughing scene." You could hire Patrick Stewart for that part and it still wouldn't have sounded any better. If I were in charge of localization, I would have just probably cut that scene out. Death to all who insult FFX's gameplay, though.

In Wild ARMs 2, I try maxing every character's skill that recovers HP whenever their Force Points go up, which made enemy attacks actually heal my characters.

You can also break Phantom Brave by creating high-level random dungeons and giving them the Failure title to make them easy to go through and level up.

I typically only replay RPGs to get an updated opinion on them so I can rewrite previous reviews I did for them, although there are rare instances in which I'll actually go through a game again, for instance, recently with Ys Origin or Valkyrie Profile DS so I could see all the endings.

Trepidation, largely because Cross to me is pretty much Chrono in name only.

I might actually give the series a second chance with this one since they're making permadeath optional.
372  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: A MM/ALttP Remake!? on: June 13, 2012, 01:16:04 PM
I'd only play the Majora's Mask remake if they ditched the annoying elements of that particular title, and I would take a Link to the Past remake with a grain of salt since the original is one of my favorite Zeldas and one of those games that shouldn't be remade.

Seiken 3 can stay in Japan for all I cared. Everything that made Secret of Mana fun was sucked right out of its sequel, and the class system sort of requires a guide to make the most of, particularly with the second class upgrade.

lol ff8 sux amirite?

F--k you, I liked FF8. If you play the game thinking you have to spend an eternity drawing spells from enemies, then you just suck at the game. Plus, Triple Triad is a fuck of a lot better than that shitfest Tetra Master.
