  • I bought it yesterday as a pat on the back for finally being employed again after three months and am having a ball. I'm enjoying this game more than I did either SMRPG or Paper Mario. When it comes down to it, it's all about pushing the A and B…
  • I've played G and GX within the last year, and enjoyed both. The battle system is one of my favs (it's one of the few that I feel I have a good handle on), but I'm not as fond of the stories or the characters. I loved the mana egg system in GX--a…

  • I said "25-50" but that's solely RPGs (and only a guess). In total I've easily got over 100 unfinished games lying around the house. I buy about 40 games a year while completing 10 or less, and this solely because I don't want to miss out on anyt…
  • I like RPGs because.... -- they're visceral. I'm not sure how well these stories would hold up in book/movie/whatever form, and don't really care. Much like manga or anime, if an RPG is telling a good story with some interesting characters and s…
  • It's been a good long since I posted in this thread... FFT: I'm on the last chapter of my second playthrough, and am at about the time I quit last time. I really love this game, but after playing it for 50 hours I'm about ready for it to be over…
  • -- The "bubble out of the nose while sleeping" thing isn't all that weird. It's the Japanese equivalent of us putting "zzzzz" over a person's head to show they're sleeping soundly. Here's one: -- The charisma-free, absolutely silent adolescen…

    Getting a "new" game with no manual is a serious rip. I check, or ask, for a m…

  • Cain, I wasn't responding to your post, but to another, in the paragraph where I made comments about the idea that media can directly influence our minds/actions. I should've been specific about that, sorry. On to FFX-2. Supposedly the dressphere…

  • I don't know any of that "good objectification/bad objectification" jazz, but I'm another het female who isn't bothered at all by the gals' outfits. I really like most of the costumes, and the ones I dislike are for aesthetic reasons, not because of…
  • I'd give a number of things higher scores, and none lower. ? Jake's scores and my responses: Interface 6: ?I had a couple minor problems with the interface. (1) the item selection screen is too small in the battle menu, requiring a lot of scro…
  • I had the same thing happen to me, as recently as two days ago. ?I've also been receiving spam email with "Rosewood" in the subject line, and this is the only board I currently post on where I have that username. ?It looks like this popup also relea…
  • I play both sides of the fence. ?I like pretty graphics and cut-scenes, but I also like a game where I can "get under the hood" of the fighting system and find different ways to approach a given situation. ? For that reason, I find older games li…

    Yes, it is a port, but at least one modification was made to it--frequency…
  • The text description made FFXII sound pretty dry, but just about any story whittled down into a paragraph or two could sound boring. I enjoyed the races in FFTA, and look forward to seeing how they might be used in FFXII. Moogles might be dissona…
  • I've seen it for $25 new at gamestop within the last couple weeks. Maybe its rarity is a regional thing. If you're hoping for something that marches in lockstep with the first two games you'll be disappointed. But taken in itself I think SIII is …

  • I really like the battle system in the Grandia games. However, even though I'm (relative to many on this board) inexperienced with RPGs it wasn't hard to learn the battle system and totally dominate over them. So, as fond as I am of Grandia's sys…

  • There are only two games that have "gotten" me that way and they're not on the list--Kingdom Hearts and FFX. I haven't even seen the ending to FFX yet and it's already gotten me emotional! Square just knows how to push my buttons, I guess. Can't ima…
  • A couple of people earlier in the thread said that a Greatest Hits edition of [X] would "spoil the rarity" of that game. The resale price of any given copy, even the original edition, would go down once a GH edition comes out. That's pretty obvio…
  • I can see not liking the Greatest Hits packaging b/c of the green stripe (or the red bar on the PS2 versions), but aesthetics has never, not once, kept me from buying one. ? I would love to see Suikoden I and II in GH versions, and would buy them…

  • I'd known about D&D since I was in grade school, and played in a few games through high school. After I graduated from college I got a 286 and my brother loaned me one of those old D&D franchise games for the PC. It didn't have an instru…

  • I don't have any precious saves that I would be sorry to lose. Then again I've never spent more than 80 hours playing any game, unless I restart a game I quit in the middle several months ago and can't remember a thing about, in which case I just de…
