I feel like I'm trying to figure out who the Zodiac killer is

If RPGfan Forums had a Facebook 'like' system, I'd have given that the thumbs up

I'm not saying where I'd stick my thumbs and how far I'd stick em.


Games: Near the end of Arkham City. This was kind of a letdown compared to Asylum. Asylum was a nice and tight narrative but still allowed for great optional exploration. In City, sure the city looks great when you're flying around, but get on the ground or or some of the rooftops and things are messy. Plus I just look around and it's nothing but fucking riddler question marks all over. Crazy traps, balloons, etc. It just seems messier and just lame. Plus the main quest is boring and unfathomable. Mr. Freeze is working with you. Then he tries to kill you. Then you're rescuing his popscicle wife like nothing happened. Eh.

I was blown away by Asylum, this one is fun only for the combat really. The boss battles have been shit so far too.

Got in Star Ocean: The Last Hope in the mail today, as well two packaged game soundtracks (Mana Khemia 2 and Ar tonelico 2).

Can't wait to play this...again. This season is a season of Star Ocean. I think now that I own a Dazzle, I'm going to just start recording my gameplay on my consoles. Maybe I'll add commentary...but it'd have to be something interesting like talk about the Star Ocean cannon/lore of that gaming world.

LIKE COMMENT AND SUBSCRIBE TO THIS POS--oh wait...

Reimi Saionji is awesome -- don't let her out of your party.  Keep posted!  The game may have a wasted plot, but it's pretty to watch and the game (especially) is fun to play.

Reimi is also the most fun to play as, in my opinion.

I'll keep that in mind, thank's for the tip!

Also, I plan on changing the characters name to that of Forum members on here. I plan to do this to the other Star Ocean games too. (I'm going to play through 2nd Evolution and 'Till the end of time).

Is 'Dice' one of these names because Dice is a good name?

Reimi is also the most fun to play as, in my opinion.

Yeah I had a blast with her.  I was also a fan of using Arumat when he got the Dragon Howl/Roar skill.  But yeah, I remember switching it up often.  Meracle was a real treat since she was basically invulnerable during blindside attacks.  Super-Bot (forgot his name) had a few spammable skills too.

Shit.  I miss this game all of a sudden.  And I've had a hankering to play them all again.

FFXIV!  OH SNAP!

FFX you could rename Tidus, but the last one you could name your whole party was FFIX, unless you count the spin-offs, then I think it was 4 Heroes.

I'm pretty sure you could in XII. It was just not obvious like some others.

Google says my memory is wrong, and I trust him more than me.

Maybe it's because games didn't have voice acting then, but for a "child archetype", she wasn't as annoying as I'd expect her to be. She was actually pretty great.

Steiner is still my favorite.  Uncomplicated damage-dealing king.  You didn't have to throw sh**, you didn't need to use "dragon skills".  Just might.... and laughter.

It's no coincidence that the decline of a renameable party coincides with the rise in voice acting in games.

The usual way to do it is just to have everyone narrate a nickname and write the character name.
