  • Well, experienced the debates almost directly. Downloaded them via teh intarweb so that I might be educated and cast my absentee ballot. Actually watched the third party debates too which, pathetically, was almost more interesting. However, I wou…
  • Howdy Dracos, thanks for the welcome. Yeah, I've been checking in on things every once in a while although my favorite section, the Ed's, seems to be declining a bit in recent months. Course, I guess people can't go full force all the time, so m…
  • Hmm, been a while since I've posted here. In general I agree with Dracos' commentary on your editorial psychosis, as he brings up a number of good points. ?However, I'd also like to add another perspective which I don't think has been touched upo…
  • Planescape:Torment. For my money nothing's better. It took everything that was mediocre or lackluster about Baldur's Gate and condensed it down into a concise, well-made game. It had the best storyline of any game I think I've ever played and pretty…
  • Hmm, well thanks and I'm glad you enjoyed it. It is a fun section to do off and on and it serves as a nice change of pace from news/ed/review/ect...

    Alright, been busy with school and Japandemonium, but figure I ought to at least…
  • Well, I've been a bum lately and not even posted on this forum, let alone written pieces to promote editorials, however, this last round has me interested enough to at least comment on a couple of the works. The first one up for grabs is Matt's. …
  • Easily assembled and configurable using a selection of common household tools! Attaches to any psyche easily and provides a constant selection of disheartening outlooks and foreboding views! Depress your friends and encourage your enemies! …
  • Nope, no demonstrations of its supposed power yet, or names to go with any of these supposed walls of titles. Like I said, its still up in the air whether its a hoax or not, but if its one, they're putting a ton of effort into it.

    Actually, it already has. ?I saw this link a while ago on the Slashdot community. The Warp Pipe Project …
  • Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if the shopping AddOn is already in the works for this one. Exiting new expansion pack with sliced turkey, fresh bagels, and take out packages of sushi!

    Oddly enough, yes. I've played through nearly every Eye of the Beholder game. My roommate actually owns the c…
  • Shinra Example: No, I don't think that killing them would result in immediate disaster. Obviously people can run things for a while without too much overhead control. However, the scandal, power struggles, and general chaos which would result from s…
  • Yes, actually, one series that doesn't quite capture that feel, but did have detriments to basically killing anyone was the Ultima line. If I remember right, you could also make those games basically unfinishable because you went and killed a major …
  • Spidey: Yes, I have, and I enjoyed it quite a bit. It was an interesting game and covered a decent number of the points I mentioned. You could specifically target body parts, and if I remember right, you could cripple people too. As far as fun, I wa…
  • Heh, I feel the same, and am stuck out in Idaho, which could be argued to be even worse. However, looking around I've got a bit of a correction on the story as I missed this earlier. Apparently its coming out in September in North America. Silly me.…
  • Well, to discover all this info yourself you could just click the Boktai link in the story, however, being the nice guy I am I'll fill you in. Yes, it is a Game Boy Advance game. The way the light functionality will work is that the cart has a…
  • Last I heard was the news from E3 which said that prior to E3 they had been in legal negotiations with Sony because Sony objected to the graphics. Since then they apparently straightened out the conflict. However, they ominously said that some peopl…
  • Alright, on the size of gaming towns I've got a couple of comments. ?As far as the size of towns in what you might call a "standard" console type RPG goes, I think you are generally in the right Dracos. ?The extra effort required to put this many co…
  • Bunch of stuff to comment on in here, so figure I'll dive right in. First off, I just read through the last three books in the space of two days while I waited in airports and rode around on planes, so I'm still processing a vast quantity of stor…
  • Alright, I may have agreed with you somewhat up until writing this. However, there are a couple points now which I think might qualify it as much as some of the other adventure titles we have covered. First off, there is still a system for advanceme…
  • Alright, to be fair to Solon, the reviewer in question for Final Fantasy VI, he really didn't give the game that bad a score. ?Despite his whining about it not being new, about the music being similar to other games, and about the overrated plot, he…
  • *********Due to the nature of Fei himself, this contains some spoiler content for Xenogears. For everyone's sake, go play it so you can read this stuff ;p ******* PT, in the general case of Fei, I think I definitely agree with you. Especially…
  • Alright, from a purely technical standpoint, yes, the timings you have mentioned are correct. Each of the games which have been mentioned were created and released in Japan on a particular set of dates which would cause the Dragon Quest line to pred…
  • Alright, I'll try to make this quick compared to some of my past comments on this subject. (Mainly hlhsquallsion reply) On the Final Fantasy VIII stuff, little to comment. ?I think you are right to question the logic behind that editorial as most…
  • Sorry about the quick succession posts. The way I view posts on here is thus: If someone has recently put up an editorial, then all of the real discussion about it is going to be happening here. Its going to be fast and furious, at least for a…
