  • The game was massively important as one of the first western SNES RPGs coupled with the fact that it told a memorable story. Much of the love for the game is from people who grew up with video game RPGs from their birth to their toddler years. Wheth…
  • My completely unjustified self-righteousness knows no bounds.
  • To further Rico's point through example, the issue in question is partly due to a misconception of what each side is stating. Clearly MegaLink has taken a very literal approach, whereas the majority of his refuters use the term in question from its …

  • They probably just did it to cause a disparity. Alien planet with a slightly twisted alien name. Probably the same case for Fear/Phia. Granted I don't know her origin as I haven't played the game, but it would be pretty strange to encounter someone …

  • Out of curiosity, when Square and Enix merged, what happened to the %18.6 shareholding that Sony had in Square? I imagine the ownership percentage changed quite a bit, but you'd think Sony would still have enough sway to toss a giant "WTF" Squenix's…

    The game world was a nice size, but it was so so empty. There are supposedly farmers and miners and nobles everywhere. I guess they stay in their houses all day. It seemed like there were only 200 humans in the entire…
  • No More Heroes would be a good choice if you're on a short term play schedule. It's pretty easy pick-up-and-go with some wacky humor in it, and you can basically put it down and come back to it at any time and still be all right to go. I have to …
  • Yeah, I've got to admit Genesis got on my nerves. I can at least forgive them for only having one character that does that, though, since I don't expect to like every character in a game. The whole Loveless thing... I wonder if they'd intended somet…
  • As someone who's spent a lot of time talking down about FF7, and being irritated at the hype surrounding it, I have to admit that this game, despite its flaws, has turned me on to the universe. I'm not particularly deterred by repetition in games li…
  • The randomness actually doesn't bother me like I thought it would, and it's also not entirely random. At least not when it comes to level ups. There is evidently actually an experience system underlying everything, and it essentially plays out as 'l…
  • Honestly, I felt having Angeal and Genesis in the mix actually made Sephiroth a better character. I'd only ever viewed him as a mumbling psychopath, due in part to the quality of FF7's localization and muddles story-telling. Seeing him prior to the …

    At LEAST give the game a shot before you make such blatant criticisms of it.
    I'm sure we'd all love to. If, you know, we could play it. Your entire argument fails to account for the fact that, when it com…
  • That's an on-and-off situation for me. A lot of game music is written to be repetitive because it has to repeat in areas, so the only true 'finish' you get to a song is more of a trailing-off before the song loops. Songs played in cinematics, on the…
  • This game isn't THAT old, and I really don't see the need for a PSP port of it. Assuming it ever makes its way over here, I'd rather they just give us the PS2 version. Or maybe do something like package Rebirth and something else together on a PS3 d…
  • I was under the impression that Tales of Destiny 2 didn't show up in America due to discomfort with the fact that the characters were essentially challenging a 'God' figure in the game, though I personally don't buy that explanation considering both…
  • Thrusting in general seems to be the most abusive motion the Wii has, if only because it's so hard to make one work right without accidentally activating a vertical or horizontal motion.
  • It sold 4 million copies, which is about on par with FF9, which was supposedly the game that went back to everything the gamers asked for. 10 and 8 both sold around 6 million. 7 is the anomaly with nearly 10 million copies. 2 million is significant,…
  • Having just played Soul Calibur Legends a bit and deciding that it was a terrible mistake, I'm kind of wary of Wii remote wagglers. SCL had a problem with treating the Wiimote swings like they were button presses, and included a slight delay time. H…
  • C'mon, Slayer, this is the internet. There's always an excuse for using insulting language. For instance, you're a gut-bellied horse sack! (Incidentally, that means I win the argument!)
  • You're done with me because you can't show me this 'great many' people you're talking about. The internet is a bubble. It's a small percentage of people talking about a lot of things as though the demographic cut is an accurate representation. Yo…
  • Let's start with some numbers. 2 million units sold in the first 2 weeks in Japan alone. It sold 1.5 million in the US after a week. The game itself is the 10th best selling PS2 game, not RPG, ever. But sales figures don't hold water, right? Beca…
  • Huh... somewhere in this process, my brain switched over to arguing about FF4 DS as opposed to FF4 The After. Not entirely sure how or why that happened, but I'm going to rescind some of animosity as a result, because that's my screw up. Sorry ab…
  • If you think little effort went into this game, you're either completely delusional, or have no idea what actually goes in to game development. If they didn't want this game to be a good retelling, they wouldn't have brought back the original scenar…
