Sounds like someone is butthurt he got booted out of his Guild.

Honestly, the only RPGs I expect to get challenge from is Action RPGs like Kingdom Hearts or something. There's no real way to make a Turn-based RPG "difficult" because most of what is happening is being determined by some calculator, and half the time the difficulty is only there to pad out the game by forcing you to grind your characters until you can beat something.

There's nothing wrong with being different from the source material- it's that they threw together whatever hackneyed shit they could think of in 5 minutes and tried to sell it using the name.

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.
1644  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.
1646  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.
1648  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: The glory days of Lucas Arts. on: April 23, 2009, 09:46:42 AM
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.
