I'm probably a bit younger than most of you, so for me it's Lufia 2. I also have fond memories of megaman 5 on the Chinese NES knockoff I had, but i think Lufia 2 was the first relatively long game that I actually finished. Love that game.

Really, we had probably over a hundred games on the SNES- I probably still haven't played a good amount of them. Some other games that I still remember clearly are Treasure Hunter G, Energy Breaker, and of course Megaman X games.

Wasn't directed at you; I got the same thing.

To be fair, I still think this is one of the better personality tests I've seen out there. Other ones tend to give you really stupid answer choices that make it obvious what the outcome is. But here, the questions are diverse enough.

The neckpieces can teleport you to the nations- it's better than the trick staff if you can get all 3. Heh.

Well, first off I got my BLU to 60.



I was pretty impressed with the party, I dunno if this is a common thing since I haven't leveled at this range in a while, but I've never gotten past chain 6 or 7 in a mid-level party like this before.



Fear my shiny new armor!



Next up is Ouryu. I thought this sounded like a pretty easy fight, at least not any harder than the last few ones...



I don't think that's a very good question to be asking, Tenzen.



So here's the all-star team.




First we wanted to take him out with Nall using Astral Flow, but that screwed up because we didn't dispel his stoneskin, and his third Aerial Blast missed because he ran out of range. We slept him and ran out of the BC, thinking we were gonna call it for the day.

I bought a few mistmelts in town before I left thinking I wouldn't end up using any of them, but we decided we'd just try to fight him straight on and bring him down with the mistmelts.




Was somewhat of a close call, but we got the job done. I leave you with this cool picture of Tenzen. He doesn't seem to be the brightest guy around- I don't think it's a good idea to be so insolent to the goddamn king of the Wyrms.

The Helping Hand
Deliberate Sociable Fun Veteran (DSFV)
Generous, helpful, kind...a few of many positive attributes people see in you, the Helping Hand. Nothing satisfies you more than helping your teammates or friends out in all the games that you play. You may even look to assist people in some cases if there is no one around asking for help. In fact, the enjoyment that you receive from helping people rivals that of solving a puzzle, winning a battle, or achieving a hard objective in a game.

Heavily social intensive games tend to be what you enjoy the most although you can probably find something to take pleasure in with most games. For instance, if you happen to find yourself in a competitive first person shooter, you'd probably take the support class. We recommend you stick to games (and crowds!) where people will appreciate you more; these include more casual gamers seeking fun and excitement from games rather than the serious competitive ones.

I think it's a glitch.

it shows you where I sleep

That's a good thing?

I don't understand how this is "shoved into your face". It's not something that is given particular focus from what I can tell, and it's put into a place that would make sense considering what game it is (I believe it's in Burnout Paradise too). I'm with everluck in thinking it's pretty creative.
1643  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: If you were stranded on an island and you could have one rpg what would it be? on: October 21, 2008, 08:49:47 PM
Answer is obvious...some kind of online RPG. =P

Those are generally designed to be endless in case people are too lazy to come rescue you for whatever reason.

OMG DOUBLEPOSTIN

I just want people to know that the Halloween event this year is actually worth doing- at least the new part of it.



Not only is that cloak pretty cool, but if you're one of those naysayers of the events I suppose you'll have an incentive to do it since it gives items that have more than just sentimental value.



You can solo the event this year too, and it doesn't take too long. So hurry it up you crazy people.

Oh please. You all know you abused 10-xp cures so that your healer could solo kill the entire game. D:
1646  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Just Beat Shining Force 1 on the Virtual Console on: October 20, 2008, 01:32:45 AM
The GBA remake was alright. The graphics were nice and all, but the bright colors are an artistic style I don't much prefer, and the difficulty was nonexistent.
1647  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Just Beat Shining Force 1 on the Virtual Console on: October 20, 2008, 01:18:18 AM
I didn't play Shining Force 1 or 2 until after I had played SF3. I've beaten SF1 several times, but for some reason I never got around to beating SF2...heh. What the hell happened to the series after that, anyway? I never really kept track, I just know there's been some pretty mediocre titles since then. =P

In sky today, I saw my first WLegs drop. It's also the first time I lose at the lot- I should probably get used to this considering how many friggin' people want the thing. Combined with how rarely we do Kirin, it ain't happening. :P



With some help from the LS, we did Diabolos today. Technically the following screenshots have spoilers, but I don't think it's anything that really matters.



So anyway knowing Tenzen's sheath has the magical ability to detect that super evil energy flowing around, naturally we walk right into the room without any caution right after we see the thing shake like a dowsing rod made of vibrators.



So we meet with the most famous of Batman villains...the Manbat. Well, he's pretty famous.



So we stand there and load our weapons and supplies while he sits there whistling quietly to himself.



After we start battling, he retaliates by continuing to stand there and whistling quietly to himself.



So we beat the guy and he explains he causes nightmares for small children like Prishe by showing them his enormous chin.



Anyway, Tenzen brings out his magic armband! That should keep that nasty nightmare monster from swallowin' anyone else up!



So we return to the city and Chapter 4 begins.



Mr. Miagi tells us we're not allowed to go meet Bahamut...but hey, we're the main characters. We're supposed to do everything. God forbid they spare a few men to actually help us brave the various evil monsters and the mysterious force threatening the entire world. THIS AND MORE ON NEXT WEEK'S EPISODE.

How is that different from logging onto WoW just to check your Auction house sales? Plenty of people do that, too.

Some people spend lots of time and have fun customizing their Facebook stuff the same way we have fun customizing our MMORPG characters.

Yeah it is.

This is a good page for basic questions like that.
