1516  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Response to the review of Flower, Sun, and Rain on: September 06, 2009, 05:27:21 PM
My stance is that it works for none of them. Roaring Shark is barf on canvas, Stanley Kubrick doesn't have any idea what his films are about, and Flower, Sun and Rain is a piece of crap.

And as an aside, Citizen Kane isn't the best movie ever made in my book, but it's certainly a very good one. The movie knows what it's about.

The T2 music was a nice touch.

I really haven't been up to much myself. My sea LS has more or less broken down at the moment, though the leader says he plans on starting back up again at some point. I attend my ZNMLS sporadically because of the time they run, and also because I managed to lose a couple months worth of work because we wiped when I popped my Tinnin:

We won the second one we popped, but it was a tough fight. For some reason the healers didn't focus their heals on the paladins on the first fight so we got our asses kicked.

During the week that Bastok controlled Beadeaux {S} for the first time since...ever, I tried doing the Cracking Shells Campaign Ops. Unfortunately, I lost every time, and later on in the week when I tried to do it again, everyone that was interested only wanted to do it with an army of black mages, so I went past that week without being able to complete the ops. Hopefully the area will be controlled again sometime since I got this finished not too long after.

With loldynamis, I got my RDM a decent chestpiece, though my magic skills are still horribly underleveled so I should probably go spam dia on something so i can at least get my enfeebling up, if not anything else.

I saved up assault points over a while spamming Lamia 13, and I did a couple Nyzuls in between and got some stuff.

By my count, the next patch should be somewhere in mid-October, so I hope we start seeing some sneak peeks soon on the POL site.
1518  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: I just purchased FINAL-FANTASY-XI Vana'diel Collection-2008, but.... on: September 05, 2009, 10:27:35 PM
Usually when they release the new Vana'Diel Collections they are around $40-$50. If I'm not mistaken, the old one is $20 right now, so you'd only be saving around $10 if you bought that new Collection (It includes stuff that has value adding to $30) as soon as it came out. Of course, they might break with tradition.

And, this is more of a personal thing, but the DLC arn't worth even $3 dollars IMO, let alone $30, so I wouldn't get it. They're not important parts of the game.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Live action movies are usually the only medium worth jack shit out of Marvel these days. Their comic books have been suffering from bad storytelling for decades, culminating in the most moronic way to rewind their flagship character- the same character they print on cereal boxes and children's underpants- 20 years.

Oh please. Calintz. =P

Just for you. I have made a thread asking the actual question you are.

1523  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: OK... another teaser site... on: August 31, 2009, 04:29:00 AM
Exactly. But they were trying to pass it off as if it was. =P
1524  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Dissidia Final Fantasy on: August 31, 2009, 03:59:55 AM
The game's alright. There was some novelty in hearing the voices of some old characters (And they were all voiced well, I might add, except for fucking Zidane), but the gameplay itself gets dull pretty quickly, IMO.

Of course, you might want to take it with a grain of salt because I personally find fighting games not worth the money, unless it's like, $10 or off the Xbox Arcade or something similar.
1525  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: xxxHolic's ending on: August 31, 2009, 03:57:42 AM
I think it's lucky if you get anime these days that have endings at all.

I've read a couple issues of the manga, and while I was interested at first, like most other anime, it goes on for way too fucking long without anything happening. Ultimately, I lost interest. Generally when I see shows or anime being all mysterious about something, it's the writer saying to me: "I don't know."

Given that the manga is still not over, I'd like to wager that the anime isn't going to take risks, like FMA did, and actually end the damn series. Not saying that FMA's ending was great or anything, but it was satisfying, and it concluded the show.

Why would any of you want a honest-to-god new Shining Force or Phantasy Star game? I take Dawn of Mana as a hard lesson that a company with many failures trying to go back to their roots end up screwing everything up anyway. =p
1527  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: j-srpgs one can play w.o. a translation on: August 31, 2009, 03:21:18 AM
Shining Force games are all easy to play without a translation, and even if you get stuck, towns are small enough so that you can go around and talk to people without worrying too much.

All the Super Robots Taisen games are the easiest ones to do, really, because the gameplay is very simplistic, and you jump between mission to mission without needing to do any exploration yourself.
1528  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Recommend Japanese Playstation RPGs on: August 31, 2009, 03:19:48 AM
Exactly. Even with voice acting as horrendous as SO4 or something, I honestly can't tag the quality of the dub onto the VAs themselves, because I thought they did a decent job with the absolute shit-imbued dialogue they were given.
1529  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What RPG world would you like to live the rest of your life in? on: August 31, 2009, 03:10:33 AM
I'd go, and I'd go to the Pokemon world, where you leave your home at ten  years old to travel the world and meet friendly animals and people all over the place while thwarting the dumbest villains who have ever lived.
1530  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: World of Warcraft: Cataclysm on: August 23, 2009, 04:37:18 PM
Cataclysm...of what? Of what, Blizzard? You're supposed to make every expansion at least three words; it's a tradition, duh. And preferably, the name has to be in the form "Something of the something".

The Ruins of Kunark
The Scars of Velious
The Shadows of Luclin
The Planes of Power
The Legacy of Ykesha
Lost Dungeons of Norrath
Gates of Discord
Omens of War
Dragons of Norrat
Depths of Darkhollow
Prophecy of Ro
Secrets of Faydwer

Rise of the Zilart
Chains of Promathia
Treasures of Aht Urhgan
Wings of the Goddess

Ambition of the Illuminus

Blizzard, this slipshod originality in your titles is going to end up making people actually interested in your product.

I'm a pretty light player of WoW so I don't know nearly as much as the rest of the people that play the game around here, but I'm impressed that they're going to bother to revamp old, obsolete content to the extent that they're going to, because it's not even content that you have to buy the expansion to experience. They could've been lazy and just like, put a portal into another time frame where the areas look exactly the same but the enemies are 20 levels higher and the gameplay content is boring as fuck (*cough* WoTG).
