Maybe it's the oversaturation of prettyboys in recent years, but I don't think she looks very feminine at all.

And for some reason she reminds me of Chris Crocker. :p

This is pretty dumb.

I liked it, personally, (The PSOne version, I didn't even know other versions existed, because I soon ceased to care :P) for the fact it wasn't trying too hard, with the story and the characters, and that's what made me like them.

I will say that I absolutely hated the dungeons though, and that alone almost killed the game for me.

I'm instantly reminded of Pulp Fiction.
1640  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Graphics in RPGs - how important are they to you? on: April 15, 2009, 10:34:59 PM
I think graphics are important, as long as they don't slow down the gameplay or framerate.

Art Style is of course the most important thing when it comes to graphics, because having a super-high end graphics engine out the ass isn't going to do anything if it still looks ugly, like Vanguard.

I was hoping it'd say something like he was caught when he was jerking off to the picture or something. =P

It's not too bad I suppose, the character name filter is pretty annoying, and the beginning cinematics are okay, but after that, it falls into what every other MMO does, so I don't think you should bother unless you really like Middle Earth.

The time travel aspect is used in too stupid of a way in the series- it's a basic element of the series, and it's only real function is to get people and things here and there, rather than being a single time-travel being something that results in big consequences, like the movies. The characters and villains are also boring, with the villains being one-shot bad guys that don't feel threatening.

Simply put, they're dumbing-down the aspects of the movies too much so they can fit the budget and schedule of a TV series.

This would only be funny if the grandmother was one of the people fighting.

I can't imagine a neighbor that would complain about having something nice to look at.
1646  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The most hours you've logged into a game? on: April 12, 2009, 05:50:34 PM
Woah, that's like... almost 2/3 of a year.  That's some intense shit.  I don't think I ever want to touch GOOD mmorpgs... Scary.

Yeah, and I'm actually considered to have a relatively lower playtime than most of the people I know. >_>

And I started playing the game earlier than most of them. :P

Well, MMOs are cheating like many people have said. =P

I was pretty crazy when I was a lot smaller; I had some sort of need to grind my characters to hell, and in no game did I do this more than Final Fantasy Tactics, where I had a level 60-something character with like, every job up to Dragoon Unlocked by the end of the first chapter.

I suppose since we've seen people overcome many things through willpower and the power of the mind, scratching itches by using an invisible arm isn't too difficult. =P

With A Crystalline Prophecy out, I suppose I'll go ahead and copy and paste some of the stuff I've said on other places to get some discussion going. If you haven't bought ACP, I wouldn't recommend you do so- I think it's a complete waste and ripoff of $10.

I'll be fair- the first cutscene sent chills down my spine and I was ready for a good story.

And then the first mission was already stupid as hell.

Seriously, do they think these "go kill normal enemies for rare/ex items" missions are fun? It only serves to pad out the mission and irritate the players. Seeing as how this is supposed to be a fucking story-centered expansion, you're not supposed to have filler. Ugh.

Quote from: Against someone arguing that this is only short because it's solo content
There's a difference between solo content (FoV) and just bottleneck content so that limited people can get it done at once (this rare/ex item bullcrap). And it's not just one mission, either. You have to then kill the gobs in the areas surrounding Jeuno (Never seen one drop off a Tiger like wiki claims, dunno about that one).

Putting stupid shit like this and then calling it a "month-long" expansion is fucking pathetic.

Quote from: Someone arguing that other expansions have only been long because of time to release
They also said that their mini-expansions would be able to be completed within about a week if a group sat down and said, "Let's do this." Then it took them like, 8 hours to finish.

Let's not even compare it to mission systems. Just the assault system alone has 20 times more content than this piece of crap. 50 different types of fights (Not including Nyzul Isle since that might as well be a completely different system, but they just made it an assault to make people choose between Salvage and Nyzul)- maybe not all of them were well designed (Hi2u Supplies Recovery, Ring Searching one, Fishing Orobon), but they showed that they were thinking, and trying to give us new ways to tackle objectives. Several new armor sets, some accessory pieces, and a little story that was silly, but was okay (At least it made sense instead of being convoluted to try to feign like it's somehow a "deep" or "thoughtful" story). By the way, in case you're about to argue that assault was spread across several patches, keep in mind that every time assault was updated, we got 5 new fights.

This is just a bunch of irritating low level NM fights (They're not creative either, oh wow Goblins that use their job's 2HR, just because it's a low level fight doesn't mean they can half-ass it), stupid farming, and then one stupidly difficult boss at the end, which is only irritating because it forces you to get the key item all over again if you fail (When have we ever had to go through such an irritating way to get the trig again for a mission? It's always been "talk to this NPC to get another one", not "go to 20 different places under a level cap").

tl;dr, A Crystalline Prophecy is a big steaming pile of goat shit.

I've never been let down so badly by a version update before, too. Not because they added things that were stupid ideas, but adding stuff that's just so badly executed (Mainly Augments).

But the new ANNMs, along with the WHM and SMN updates, are more than enough to make up for the letdowns I guess. The RDM updates were kinda lame, though.

Needless to say, I'm not the least bit interested in A Moogle coup d'etat or Shantotto's Ascension, because those were two I was less interested in ACP, and with ACP being such a large disappointment, I'm even going to bother.

Korean MMOs arn't exactly known for being revolutionary.

If people are looking for a big new MMO I suppose the best thing to look forward to is whatever SE's next MMO is.
