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.

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.

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:

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.
1896  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.

The Super Robot Taisen series is decent if you can get your hands on it- but its a lot more enjoyable if you watch tons of mecha anime.
1901  Media / General Games / Re: Rumor: Mega Man 9 being made on: October 14, 2008, 02:13:36 PM
Like all other megaman games, it gets pretty easy once you get through them the first time. Well, relatively, anyway.

One thing that's really bothered me about the game is the lack of backgrounds. They claimed they wanted to have some great looking 8-bit graphics...and even though a lot of the new enemies are really cool like the Fire Dragon, the backgrounds are largely solid black, which is something that makes it look kinda lazy. Feels like they just painted it all black so we wouldn't notice the lack of detail.
1902  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: October 14, 2008, 09:36:42 AM
Yeah, costs quite a bit of gil though (At least for noobies), from 10k-30k I believe, depending on the weekly rank of the nation you wish to transfer to. You also lose your CP (Kind of, your CP is saved on each individual nation, which makes sense).
1903  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Setting computer sound as input on: October 14, 2008, 09:08:37 AM
Every time I start up FRAPs and record sound on the video, it records sounds from the microphone instead of the game/video I am currently watching. It's probably because of the drivers I have installed, but the conexant audio input through a microphone is the only one I can select. Are there any drivers out there to help me directly record sounds from my computer, or anything that can trick my computer into thinking that the computer sounds is the input?
1904  Media / General Games / Re: StarCraft II: How to completely rob Korea in three easy steps. on: October 14, 2008, 07:43:43 AM
Much the same kind of player Raze is here, I build up a large base and send in the super-troops, and that never works online. Every time I've played a Blizzard RTS online it was under custom maps like TD or DotA.

As long as they keep the story at a good pace, instead of taking a story and stretching it over 30 missions instead of 10, I'm game.
1905  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XI - Journal! on: October 13, 2008, 12:26:01 PM
*looks it up*

Oh damn, the newbie training system had a lot more effort put into it than I thought. :P

And with mission 2-3, even if I switch to Windurst, we can do it together as long as we end up going to the cutscenes in the right order. Rank 1 and 2 missions are easily soloable at your level I believe, but 2-3 gets a level 25 cap. All the missions from rank 3 to rank 6 are the same, as I recall.
