  • There is a line between making a game comfortable and enjoyable to play and making something that removes any real danger or difficulty to the player. I grew up on the old hard RPGs. Games where if you didn't have any inventory slots you would lo…
  • The D&D games were bad? Lots of people loved the Gold Box/Eye of the Beholder games. I know I did. The trick is to think of the Gold Box games as what they really are. Strategy RPGs. You spent most of your time in combat and pretty much fr…
  • That level editorial was ok.. Till it got to giving Dragon Warrior all the credit for levels as we know them today. Then it kinda took a wee bit of a downturn. Did you even play Wizardry or Ultima, the 2 games Dragon Warrior basically stole…

    I don't give much respect to JCRPGs either. Does that mean I don't unde…
  • I suppose I shall in fact explain a bit more on player death that I remember. My experience with MMORPGs is as long as many people's experiences with electronic RPGs in general. (Ultima Online came out about a month after FF7 did in the US. If one c…
  • My original post was long enough, but I could have added actual examples of how other games do it better. I just didn't get into that. But quick ones: Soloing all the way through. You pretty much can solo all the way through in Star Wars Ga…
  • I played FF11 for less than a month. The game is simply awful, being a ripoff of the equally awful Everquest. Why I hated it? 1.Only one character slot unless you want to pay more. Umm.. no. 2.No server selection. How can you adventure wit…
  • The leave RPGs alone article confused me. Mainly because it seems to think RPGs have only been around for 10 years or so. Im hoping DW8 is halfway decent though. Haven't played a new DW game since 4. Be nice to see where they have gone with the …
  • It comes out the 27th, and people who had preordered the game up to a certain point get to start playing the 25th. I got into the last 4 day open beta. It might just be the best MMORPG ever made. Its fast, fun, and a breath of fresh air. I pre…
  • I honestly don't see the point. The game is fine as is. It doesn't need a remake. The gameplay was good and the graphics were excellent for its time, and like many 16 bit games, still looks really good today. (Something we can't say for most 32 b…
  • Working Designs released the first "traditional" English Language console CD RPG in North America. Why they take so effing long is beyond me. Probably all this stupid packaging I really don't care about. More games, less goodies.
  • Why is it bad then? Explain to me how this works. Explain to me how a beloved game would be damaged by a worthy follow up. How it wouldn't make more money because damn nobody cares what happened to the cast, or wants to revisit that world. I w…
  • FF8 is up there. So is Wizardry: The Return of Werdna. Hoshigami is mighty awful, but its flaws were preventable. Beyond the Beyond is another game that could have been fixed easily.
  • Pretty much if you have played FF11 or Everquest, you have played Dark Ages of Camelot. (Cept I would say DAoC is the more fun game of the 3. This is not saying much mind you.) But almost every MMORPG does this from time to time.
  • The Dragon Quest editorial was kinda crappy. The gist of it is "Hey! ?Final Fantasy isn't as popular as you think and here are the facts!", then the author precedes to have no clue of the games he is trying to outknowledge us with. Ultima and …
  • There is a reason for the combat system Dragon Warrior uses. ITS BASED OFF OF WIZARDRY. Wizardry has always had 1st person battles, and until the 6th game in the series you never even had a picture of your PCs to even look at. Dragon Warrio…
  • Yeah. But at least Nei is quasi adult... And compared to many "outfits" female characters (both videogame and comic book, western or eastern..) seem to wear, Nei's garb is positively Victorian. And she is almost the least scandalously dressed girl i…
  • I actually have that Nei figure in that one picture. Got the whole set off ebay. Had to throw away the Puyo Puyo one though. A little girl in a skirt with a full panty shot? If I wasn't worried about polluting the enviroment I would have BURNED the …
  • I was quite disappointed with Tactics Ogre, FFTA, and Fire Emblem. Hopefully Shining Force will redeem the genre on the system. Every single one of the games I mentioned were fatally flawed in some way, with Fire Emblem the easiest to fix. (Remov…
  • Instead of lowering clothes for what are supposed to be people in VERY dangerous situations, howabout giving them realistic battle gear and make their personalities interesting instead of looking like strippers so lonely fans can write porn fics and…

    Excuse me? Is there a reason I need to be insulted for no good reason?

    Wow. Considering Phantasy Star 2 was released in the US before Final Fantasy, Drag…
  • Im diggin it. Im an utter slut for the Phantasy Star series so this will be a must buy for me. Hell, looking at that Japanese site, I would almost buy the entire 3d Ages line! After Burner 2? Virtua Racing? Columns? Last Battle? Outrun? …
  • While I was never that fond of FF7 (And even less fond of the fanbase it has brought to anime and RPGs...), this is a VERY stupid move on Squenix's part. An FF7 follow up is a LISCENSE TO PRINT MONEY on just about any of the major consoles, and a…
  • Played the demo disk myself this weekend. Its good. Removed a few good things from FM3, but then added a few other good things to replace it. Im there for the full thing.
  • I wouldnt mind the Phantasy Star remake myself.
  • I love Sega, but its probably gonna be something dumb. Probably won't be PS 5, Skies of Arcadia 2, Sakura Taisen, or hell, even Super Robot Taisen (not by them, but its one of those games I kinda dream about. Cuz im sick.). Most likely its eit…
  • The originals opening was better. Something about it just clicked with me. Reminds me I need to finish that game someday if I still have the save file..
  • I have too many to count over all my systems. I am guessing over a hundred..
  • Me a great poster? I think a few people here would disagree with THAT particular statement... But I do have to ask how come City of Heroes doesn't seemed to be mentioned as an upcoming RPG for PCs. Its "sister" game Lineage 2 is listed, while thi…
