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.

Yakuza and Valkyria Chronicles would like to have a word with you.

Never played Yakuza, but I do know Valkyria Chronicles is a good game, though every single character grating on my nerves does lower the enjoyment a little.

But like Eusis said, when's the last time they put out a good Phantasy Star/Shining Force/Sonic game? They're on the level of George Lucas as far as franchise-o-cide goes.

Cream pie.

Someone was going to say it eventually.

Serious answer, Pumpkin.

Well it is common knowledge that clouds float in the sky. And we all know that the Bay of Pigs invasion started on April 17th. So if the teaser is showing clouds, and the anniversary of the Bay of Pigs is the same day, and the Bay of Pigs involved airplanes, that means absolutely nothing.
1674  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New Shining Force? (Sega Teaser) on: April 10, 2009, 07:26:57 AM
Not sure what you want us to discuss.

Uh, the clouds were pretty.

Sega sucks.

...How the hell do you turn this into a movie?
1676  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Tim Schafer thinks fans 'worry too much' about sales numbers on: April 07, 2009, 11:47:22 AM
Not really, there's a pretty big difference between becoming successful and selling out.
1677  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Tim Schafer thinks fans 'worry too much' about sales numbers on: April 07, 2009, 05:03:43 AM
Would it be in any common sense to say "Yeah, I'm worried my game will tank and I'll be out of a job in this shitty economy"?

Nah, they should get the AV stars, because those are the only women from Japan that has a shot of being known outside the country, harrr.

I put hundreds of hours into PSO, but I gotta say picking back up PSOBB a couple months ago, it really hasn't aged well at all (There's a really popular free server for PSOBB, pretty easy to find, dunno if its still up). The targetting system, the camera...just all too irritating for me.

I had a lot of great times in PSO though, those were the days.

That's...a lot of effort for a joke account. Ironically I think someone that puts that much time into a joke account might just be perfect for the OP.
