The only time I've had fun getting lost on a map is if battles arn't mandatory unless you deliberately walk into an enemy- like Chrono Trigger if it had a large map to get lost in. This tends to be something MMOs have exclusively- I'm not sure if FFXII would have that either, based on how that game was designed.

Watched Hancock. The first half was great, the second half was a train wreck and ruined the movie. It turned into the very thing it was a parody of in the first half. Not to mention the story made absolutely no sense at all.

Hancock is a parody?

Glad to hear I don't have to bother seeing the Day The Earth Stood Still. Stop the remakes please!

Eh, remakes can be good. Every time people complain about remakes I always mention The Thing.

Watched Get Smart recently. Guess I shouldn't have passed up watching it in the theaters- there was some lame parts but overall I thought it was hilarious.

Also watched Forrest Gump. It was alright- just a bit long for my tastes as far as these kinds of movies go.

An RPG that completely takes place under the sea sounds kinda interesting.

I'm sure it's been done before, I probably just never heard of it.

I don't see how you can possibly get lost in any RPG now that you've been able to navigate through FFXI. It takes like 10 minutes to run straight across a single area in that game if you KNOW the way. Finding a town in FFIV even with a vague direction takes like 5 minutes.

You forgot the part you crash your car into a tree because you got a heart attack and stroke at the same time. Liposuction doesn't make you healthier.

I think it's more based on how interesting the world itself is, rather than whether I'm in the mood or not. If the world is strange and interesting, then I'll want to explore more and see things. If it's just boring grasslands and mountains constantly I'd really rather just skip all the traveling.

Uh oh weekend update!

First, I've been working on Nyzul a bit, and I got to floor 21 now.

Shouted for a floor 21 after that for like 3 hours and then failed the run. I hate that.

This kinda blew my mind too:

I got shiny new AF2 in Dynamis this week, I think this picture says it all:

Crazy adventures in promyvion - vahzl this week, as we find a hugh jass crystal at the bottom of Fei'Yin.

A familiar face from RoZ shows up.

Didn't take any screens while climbing, but I did get this thing:

We climb to the top looking for the pale emo kid, only to be surprised by the empty attacking us. In the empty.

Once that nonsense is over with it's onto next week! Now we have to go for the Three Paths mission, a long and annoying mission with like 5 or 6 different NM fights, many of them capped and in a BC.

 I'll still play games with random encounters, but if it's gonna have 'em I want an on/off feature.


Lots of games have an item that prevent random encounters. They should at least have that much in every game.

Seems fine to me.
1525  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What Final Fantasy DS game is best and why? on: December 20, 2008, 07:29:24 PM
Pretty sure it doesn't count when they show it in the opening CG.
1526  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: question about the DS FF4 on: December 19, 2008, 11:09:22 PM
It sounds to me you can't handle any kind of game with any free space, because FF4 is incredibly simple as far as these kinds of games go.
1527  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Yet another bunch of GC games being ported over to Wii... on: December 19, 2008, 08:44:35 AM
Smart idea would be to put PSO I'd think.

The problem isn't the mythics arn't good- they're good weapons and all, but they're certainly not anything near worth the effort. The way things are, they're much harder to get than relics.

And with the lame way the aftermath is set up, only a few of the mythics really offer anything good.
1529  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: December 17, 2008, 06:26:59 PM
If you want a Joyeuse, get a ToD and a few of us could help you fight him- he's really not that hard.

Best weapon a PLD can get that's not a relic is a Hauteclaire- doubt you'd go for that one, either.

It was clearly the Golden Age of gaming, much like 1930 and 40s Hollywood. A lot of the RPGs in this generation seem like the 2000s age of film: lots of flash, with little substance (obviously, with some exceptions).

And a whole lot of fucking remakes.
