Is the rest of the series anything like this?
Not as bad, no, but DQ in general is kind of grindy. The GBC versions are easier and faster; I know it's too late now since you actually bought Dragon Warrior, but you might want to keep that in mind if you ever replay, or even if you want to play the GBC remakes for II and III.

Also, seriously, why are all the female characters in Persona 3 Portable written so much better that their male equivalents?
Because it's Persona. I don't know very much about P3, and I only know P4 from my friends rambling about it and reading hiimdaisy's comics, but seriously, the females are just too badass compared to the males.

I think the only males I actually like are P1's MC, Jun Kurosu, and from what little I know of him, Kanji Tatsumi.

I figure it's better to bump this up than make a new topic, since this one hasn't been pruned yet.

I think the last few purchases I made were...

- Tales of Symphonia (GameCube)
- Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World (Wii)
Those two were made on recommendation of my friends. I don't own a Wii, but I plan to get one soon. I picked up a GC memory card and controller too.

- Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift (DS)
- Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology (PS1)
I got these for cheap at GameStop when I went to pick up a PlayStation 3.

- Star Ocean: First Departure (PlayStation Portable)
I found this title that is semi-expensive online for cheap at a mall's GameStop when I went to get a new PS3 controller for myself, as the one that came with my used PS3 was somewhat busted. I let my sister keep it though.

- Chrono Trigger (DS)
- Chrono Cross (PlayStation)
Bought these near the end of my first semester of college.

- Phantasy Star Collection (GameBoy Advance)
- Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings (DS)
I needed to get RW because I freaking love FFXII, and Phantasy Star Collection was priced real cheap.

And I just now bought the following PlayStation games - Persona 2: Eternal Punishment, Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete, and Lunar 2: Eternal Blue Complete. They're all rare PS1 games, but they were going for incredibly low prices. Well, EBC wasn't, but I was waiting for a friend's input when the copy going for $30 got snatched up. Eh, you win some, you lose some, you buy it anyway.

25 hours and 48 minutes later, I'm finally back where I was at before my computer crashed while playing Gemini and Tom's translation. I must say, thanks to the ability to skip battle animations, I've been enjoying the PSP port of Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2 - Innocent Sin at lot more than the PS1 original.

I missed out on the Prime versions of Tatsuya and Maya's Personas, but I think I'll manage.

P2:EP pretty much uses the same formula, except sometimes there's multipart dungeons! I happen to prefer it though...
...It does? Oh. I was hoping it did it differently, because it'd be really trying to do that for another 40 to 50 hours, possibly more.

Well, fuck.

Since it turns out we’re not getting Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2 - Eternal Punishment for PSP, I’ve since downloaded Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 2 - Innocent Sin for PSP and the original PlayStation version Persona 2: Eternal Punishment… converted for use with my PSP, of course. :P We’re getting a PlayStation Network release of the P2: EP on PS1 soon, though, so no need to fret about us missing out on the series.

I’m trucking through SMT: P2 - IS at the moment, of course. I kind of like it, but the formula it uses is kind of… episodic. Generally, you traverse a dungeon, plot happens, you get some downtime to explore the city and talk to NPCs—who more than likely have had their dialogues updated—and spread rumors, then you traverse a dungeon. I liked Shin Megami Tensei: Persona a bit better in that regard, because you usually just go through dungeons without that mass of new NPC text to go check.

That's actually a pretty cute Link.

Approved.

...Oh, right, the PlayStation 4. Yeah, woo, more Sony. Yeah, woohoo. So happy and stuff. Yeah, woo, super enthused.

But seriously, that Link is super cute.

No, but her hair has. Jesus Christ.

The DS however is COMPLETELY different and is no faithful at all to the original - and it's incredibly grindy -
The only time I've ever had to grind is for gil to get the pass to the Troia Gentleman's Club. I also attempted to get Edge's levels up to speed with the rest of the team, but gave up.

...

I'm... I'm embarrassed to answer now after seeing you guys' replies...

...Well, here goes anyway.

1. Peaches. I actually discovered her from a net pal of mine who's since gone missing. I'd really like you all to get introduced to her the way I did, but you'd have to get a YouTube account. It's Miss Piggy lip-syncing her famous song Fuck the Pain Away. Her electronica riffs are fun, and I love how original her lyrics are, even if they're not the most thought-provoking.

2. Erutan, also known as katethegreat19. This girl is amazing! She composes, sings, mixes, and in some occasions writes the lyrics for the songs herself. She recently got her covers officially licensed by Square Enix and Disney; I am so, so happy for her. I found out about Miss Erutan on GameFAQs, where someone linked her take on FFIX's Rose of May.

3. Fitz & the Tantrums. They're a "new wave soul" group, as far as I understand. I don't quite know what I like about their style in the late '00s and early '10s as opposed to actual old school artists from the 1960s, but F&tT is a really fabulous group to me. These guys were found completely by chance--I was staying up late in the summer before I started college, watching early morning MTV... you know, the only time they actually show music videos? :laugh: Their song MoneyGrabber was on, and I loved the song so much I Googled the lyrics and here I am.

That looks to be right. Thank you KingMike, I hadn't thought of just searching one particular case.

Programming / Dragon Warrior I & II (GBC) - text table issue
« on: January 26, 2013, 03:00:46 pm »
Hello everyone! So I thought I'd make a simple text patch that changes the spell names of Dragon Warrior I & II for the GBC to their shiny new counterparts that started at Dragon Quest VIII.

However, I'm at a loss as to how to go about finding the text. A simple Internet search yielded that these versions are not oft hacked games. I decided to try my own hand by doing a relative search in Windhex32... nothing, multiple times. Failing that, I decided to see if I could decipher the table myself by opening up the font block in YY-Chr and inputting the equivalent values as a new table file. All that did was end up in an array of gibberish being displayed throughout the ROM.

I'm completely perplexed. Does anyone know what's going on here? I tried looking up some documents, but they either only provided specific help for a specific platform or basically said to do a relative search, the latter of which I've tried.

Thank you all and have a nice day! :)

I like it! I squee'd at the new layout for database entries, and I like how it matches my avatar now. :D

Excellent work. :thumbsup:

After having read this thread, I have come to the conclusion that you guys simultaneously make me love you and hate you.

Also, I'm a fan of pepperoni and onions, but I also like ham and pineapple and peppers, too.

Me too. And I hate it when the game punishes you for playing that way.
Changing teammates in Phantasy Star II was the bane of my existence.

Ineffectual (that is, they take action, but don't ultimately accomplish anything on their own):
- Rinoa
- Quistis
- Ashe
I don't think it's entirely fair to put Ashe on that list like she's some simpering maid crying for someone to tell her what to do.

Minor spoilers for FFVIII and major spoilers for FFXII below.

Spoiler:
Rinoa just wanted to get back at Daddy. Quistis only failed at teaching.

The fate of Ashe's nation laid in her hands, not to mention she was internally wrestling with the idea of ruling all Ivalice. Adding that to the shock of grief, and wanting avenging the deaths of Rasler and Raminas by using the new-found and deadly powerful Nethicite to wipe Archades off the map, and you have something deeper than petty familial feuds or discovering she's taken the wrong vocation at a young age.

I might end up booting Boco if it lays an egg with a black or red chocobo inside, but other than that I'll leave everyone as-is.

In video games where you wind up with enough characters to change the team's members, I like to use all the characters at one point or another, even if it's not "optimal" to do so. I know I only need three extra generics at most in WotL, but since all 18 units can be kept with 6 slots left over, I didn't want to dismiss any of them. It wouldn't have made sense to me.

I finally picked up Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions again, and this time I'm not cheating! :D

Instead I'm using the game's very own built-in ways of breaking it. I just got Ramza and my six generic units JP Boost, Auto-Potion, and Move +1. I was initially only gonna acquire the first two, but the latter was gotten along the way. Everyone wins!

I currently have two knights, two black mages, a white mage, and an archer. Ramza will be mastering squire before moving on to other vocations. Delita and Argath can go fuck themselves. We're currently about to tackle the Siedge Weald, and after that comes the dreaded Dorter Slums.

As a side note, half my generics have names that sound like Homestuck trolls: Wystan, Charlys, and Vrsela. The other three are Cole, Celeste, and Muriel, for the record.

I find this troubling as I don't read Homestuck.

Anyway, let's hope Auto-Potion is as much of a win-game button as everyone on GameFAQs claims it to be.

I think I'd like All the Bravest a hell of a lot more if you bought things with gil instead of throwing more money at Square Enix.

It sounds so cute and it's like "Oh, I could get this if I had the system!" but then I remember you pay real money for revivals and I sigh.
