You fail at linking Losfer.

It's actually a lot easier to argue that JRPG characters look similar because anime as an art form is lot less detailed than most any art style Western games use.

About damn time another Star Onions Album came out.

I'm not sure about the song choices, though. Faded Memories works as a slow, creepy song, and I think they already achieved that under the piano collections arrangement. The Gustaberg arrangement seems redundant because they already had a Bonus Track of Gustaberg in the Aht Urhgan soundtrack, which sounded great. And Distant Worlds...guess they just can't get enough of that song, eh? =P

That being said though, Rapid Onslaught is easily my favorite battle song in the game, and a rearrangement of Fighters of the Crystal sounds nice.

I don't have the game, but I've liked what I've seen of it, but I'm obviously not going to get a PS3 just for this game.

And I think I'm in the minority on this, and it's obviously a personal preference, but something about the characters in this game grate on me like crazy.

Just because you didn't like the characters doesn't mean the game forgot about them.
1536  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The youthful protagonists thread on: April 26, 2009, 04:31:08 PM
I'm not sure why you would label a game as forgetting about its characters because it throws one bit of stupidity at you near the end. Final Boss sucked but the rest of the game was just fine.

Doesn't look like there's anything interesting in there other than the absurd concept.
1538  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Favorite Ds game, only one on: April 24, 2009, 06:44:23 PM
There's still a lot of games for the DS I haven't played, but out of the ones I have played, I really gotta say I loved Hotel Dusk. The slow-scrolling text the first time through made me want to tear my hair out, though.

Sadly this actually made me want to play it.

Who needs LucasArts, we have DoubleFine now.

If they ever release their damn game. :P

Didn't really mean any disrespect to Masato Kato, but rather meant that it's a big disappointment that a story like this would come out of him, given the track record he's had.

Sorry about lack of code tags, but I figured I wouldn't need to tag things about the Seed Crystal being the origin given that I believe they had already said that by the fifth or sixth mission. My problem with the seed crystal, though, is that it's introduction adds nothing to the overall story. I've never been one to be too anal about canon or consistency in sequels/spinoffs, if you can do a good story, you can change stuff around so that it works better. But again, the Seed Crystal really doesn't add anything, and it wasn't even used effectively to develop any of the characters. Also, there's no actual explanation given in the game itself of what the seed crystal is and what it is for. If we have to make it up ourselves, that means the writer didn't know.

As far as the ending goes, well...I'll wait till you finish it before I say any more, I suppose.

If it's foul play, though, it's really fucked up.

I think I see a bit of a flaw in that master plan there.

i've already seen it.  it was.......ok...  i'm not the biggest dbz fan there is out there granted but the movie still did some nice things.  the story is basically setup like this.  picollo (sp?) is the bad guy goku is in high school just learning his ki and whatnot.  then the rest goes from there.  overall i give it a thumbs up on the simple fact i thought it was gonna be a lame movie with the dbz name slapped on it. 

You're joking, right?

Even if I didn't have to pay for this, I'm still annoyed at the absolutely pathetic conclusion Aldo and Emeline have to a story we've been waiting for 6 years.

The person who wrote the story was the same guy that did Nation and Zilart missions, and it's obvious he has not bothered to go read up on how the lore has expanded, especially from CoP, which makes this story just incredibly silly. The Seed Crystal doesn't fit with the history we've been given...
Code:
how can we possibly be born from both the Seed Crystal and the Destruction of the Mothercrystal?
It doesn't make any sense, and it only shows a sign of laziness and uncaring for what has happened in the 4-5 years he hasn't worked on the storyline. (It's really not that much- you could probably read through the entire established history of Vana'Diel in a couple hours, so it's not like it's some overwhelming backlog he has to address) I wouldn't have minded an adjustment of the story behind the creation of Vana'Diel if he created some story that was good enough to justify a change, but as it is it's something he probably wrote the night before he had to submit it.

I could probably write out a huge essay pointing out every single thing wrong with the new expansion and it'd reach the text length longer than the dialogue that we were fed in this expansion, that's how much crap is filling this thing.

Pretty surprising for that to come from Milkman, since he's probably the one most supportive of FFXI in the community. He's been playing since launch and he's always been very supportive of the game, from that column in EGM till now.

Guess that only emphasizes how big of a piece of crap this thing is.
