I dunno, hasn't it been a trend for Final Fantasy and a lot of JRPGs in general to have girly looking boys as main characters? Bishonen characters are nothing new, they seem to attract more female Japanese players, which is beyond me.

Finished Now and Then, Here and There and REC. REC, in particular, surprized me, because it doesn't give as much crap as a lot of other Romantic comedies do, probably because the whole series is only long enough to fit into one movie. This approximately 90-minute series accomplished a lot more in the 9 10-minute episodes it had than some other 26-episode series I've watched. I usually don't like this type of anime, but I'm glad this was an exception.

Watching Macross 7. This series is a sharp contrast to REC, because it stretches out the series with so much filler and so little explanation that I get irritated. I don't know if it's purposely funny that Basara is so damn into his music, or it's only that way to me because of how he sings in the most serious situations.

I'm on episode 19, and I'm hoping they will start explaining some of the stuff going on, because up to now it's been pretty formulatic.

Good stuff. Except for the final dungeon, which doesn't even let you save before the final boss (wtf, mate?). That's just not cool.

You could always run back after beating the Prince's group's boss. It's better than going through the whole damn dungeon again. I'm guessing they did it because there's this point where you make a decision that affects which ending you get, so either they want you to play the game again from start to finish to get the other choice, or just annoy you by making you go through the 2-hour dungeon again (Of course, the second time around it takes a lot less time, especially in New Game +, where you can dash without having Cathari.)

You probably just jinxed it.
1926  The Rest / General Discussions / Yet another eBay gem. on: May 06, 2006, 07:18:17 PM
The customer questions are the best part of the page.

Q: Dear Sir, At the moment this is just a story and nothing else, a pretty far fetched story too. What proof do you have that any of this actually happened, surely there must be some Police/Fire/Ambulance reports, video recordings (you said you had one but took it back off again), pictures or audio tapes. If you are able to prove any of this story you are telling, then I will undoubtedly be able to secure you substantially more than anyone else is offering, I have a client who would be willing to pay $10,000 if not more for this with some sort of proof. I look forward to your reply. Many thanks and kind regards, Alan

A:    You do not wish to experience what proof would be for you.
1927  Media / Single-Player RPGs / hack g.u. or hack fragmint on: May 04, 2006, 07:46:19 PM
Hmm, I haven't been keeping up with GU, aside from the fact that I know I really like the new art style of it. I haven't heard much about the battle system, but I'm sure almost anything would be better than the horrendous one in the first four .Hack games.

Also, I've only heard negative things about Fragment. They're basically taking the first four .Hack games and putting it online. It's nothing like what you think it might be if you saw .Hack//SIGN. Not that it had to be exactly the same, but the game was unbalanced as hell. You could basically have 3 wavemasters spamming elemental weaknesses and you can get anywhere fast. Also, as far as I remember, there are no online events. It's not even as addicting as some other limited-player online games like PSO, because there's very little drive to get new items, as they all do the same thing. I'm glad they didn't bring the thing to the US.

No doubt it's the one where Lyon dies in the hero's arms, and then Lymsleia is left to build the country by herself while the hero disappears afterwards.

The worst possible complete ending is still a good one, imo.

Looks like Chuck Norris likes them too.

Well, seeing as how the style of this game is based off mostly Ancient Chinese/Japanese history, that's kind of they way it was: Kings and Princes were often educated, but they wern't always masters of strategy. Seeing as how the Prince isn't in line for the throne, he probably didn't get educated as much (Lym had afternoon studies but Prince didn't).

Besides, I think it's in Lucretia's blood. After all,
she backstabs plenty of people, so I'm pretty sure she feels the need to keep a lot of things in the dark.

By the way, what the HELL is with Richard? Totally overpowered, I wish he was the one that
was involved in winning the Sacred Games, he would've totally kicked ass.
1932  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Suikoden V on: April 20, 2006, 07:16:31 PM
Well, secretive strategists arn't anything new, in games or in real life for that matter. That chinese proverb probably says it best: "Don't let your plans get into six ears." You never know when someone's going to backstab you.

Maybe I'm reading a little deep into it, but the one that Lucid mentioned I figured out myself, since you did that earlier in the game (sorta) it kind of imprinted already.

The Formation skill is like a Unite skill for the whole party, so it takes up a whole turn. If you have the unfriendly or whatever status, you can't use it. You can still use it if people are down, though.

Suikoden V.
Got my headquarters again. I can't seem to get the Alhazred event to occur in the Mashuna inn, anybody know what's up?
1934  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Suikoden V on: April 17, 2006, 01:21:02 AM
For the question about the endings, yes, there's 11 endings, 7 of which are premature ends which are obviously bad. The other 4 consist of two good endings and 2 normal endings. The two good endings can be obtained by having all 108 stars, though one of them requires something else to be available.  My first run through the game, I got the worst one out of the 4 full-game endings. The one a step above that requires something like 60 or 70+ stars. Both normal endings, however, are...unsatisfactory to a lot of people, but they're both complete the story fine. It's hard to say why without giving away at least SOME spoilers. It wasn't disappointing to me, it just left me thinking, "DAMN I wish I got all 108 stars..."

Personally, I like the characters in here better, since a lot of them have very strong reasons to join the Prince. The setting makes up for crappy cookie cutter characters.
1935  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Suikoden V on: April 16, 2006, 11:45:15 PM
Yes, there's a lot of people in the game that you can miss.

I don't like how Suikoden III gives less of a "travelling" feel to the game by not having a world map. Maybe it's a small detail to some, but I find that to enhance the feeling that the war is a really big thing.

I still feel the need to complain about V's loading times, though... You could say that it only takes maybe 3 or 4 seconds to go into battle, and then once again after that, but if you added it up, it'd be like 2 or 3 hours just waiting for the command menus to appear. Also, does anybody get a really long loading time when you access the formation section of the menu?
