Gaming Discussion / Re: FFMQ Sucks

There are lot's of things that can draw someone into an RPG. Story (Xenogears), characters (Shadow Hearts), mechanics (SMT). If some people go so far and will play a 40 hour game just because of the music, then no one will stop them either.
MQ still fails at RPG, story and mechanics though. It doesn't matter which you value, it'll disappoint in every single way. Stuff like being able to avoid battles is just an incidental side aspect that can't negate a broken core gameplay - terribly boring one-dimensional combat. There is really nothing to reward you for going forward. No awesome characters to meet, no surprising story twists to see, no awesome battles to conquer. Just a stream of endless meh.

All the points that were supposedly good about the game (except the music) boil down to: the game can be played from start to finish without crashing. Congratulations.

hehe One of the main reasons why I kept going with this is because I assumed that this was one of those cases where most people's opinions were being warped by what is usually heard about the game rather than the way it actually is. It's easy for that to happen some times if the right people speak loudly enough and there is no one to effectively counter their point.

If your driving along a road and everyone is driving towards you, maybe it's YOU who's going the wrong way. Also possible at least...

Seriously, if people have to reach for "the grass tile is not hideous I guess" to say something good about the game, you know you are in trouble. Saying FFMQ is good is like saying E.T. is good because if you read a FAQ you'll see that there kinda is a point to the game after all.

The "difficulty" of a RPG is how much patience the required grinding takes.

Unless it's SMT, then it's how well you can memorize the weaknesses of 10 enemies at a time.

Can't contribute anything worthwhile to the topic, but I had to chime in to say that the shortened board preview from the main page for this topic is priceless.

This raises a true philosophical question: why are we, humans, able to realize these mistakes after the fact, and not before?
 ;D

Because we can't set the real life ATB setting to 'wait'.  :'(

In the meantime, why not take a look at Skullgirls? Everyone seems to appreciate that one.

Good one  :beer:

Gaming Discussion / Re: Ys Chronicles I+II

What did you find so bad about that one? I liked that game a lot more than Ys VI.

Having a party didn't add anything gameplay wise except more annoying micro management. The AI controlled character's damage was artificially limited, if the AI decided to attack at all instead of standing around. So it was just a couple of extra HP bars (that controlled worse than Adol) you had to switch to. Also, Ys was never big on story. It was always a useless throwaway story about the chosen one having to kill some ancient evil. And that was fine because it didn't get in the way of the excellent action. In Ys 7 it feels like they upped the talking and cutscene time by a factor of 10. Only the story is still the same shit. And it does get in the way and they are massively wasting your time with it.

Then when it came to the final boss and I saw that I was fucked because I hadn't levelled and equipped my whole entourage, it was time to put the game down and never look back.

Ys 1's final boss is so shitty it ruined the whole game for me sadly. Don't remember anything about Ys 2 even though I just played it last year or so. Might be alzheimers settling in or it just wasn't memorable at all.

The series only gets brilliant with Oath of Felghana/Ark of Napishtim and then everything till Seven. Seven was terrible too sadly. Haven't tried Celceta yet because of that.

Still ain't finished the first game lol

I'm having trouble with this game actually...I can never seem to find the exit until I've wandered Around for a good solid 15 minutes.

Welcome to 90s FPS level design  :crazy:

If you own a dualshock 3 at leas, tehre are drivers for it that amke them believe its totes an xbox controller all the time.

I didn't have much luck with those drivers personally. I'd recommend just buying a wired 360 controller for PC gaming in general. It seems to have gotten slightly cheaper since the XBOne released too, at least from what I remember paying for mine.

A NeoGeo emulator with a few KoFs and Mark of the Wolves is way better than either...

Jagged Alliance 2 is real time? :D

I'm sure it was a slip up given the huge list, I think it's otherwise pretty excellent and should keep a newcomer busy for a decade or so.

Also, regarding the Protestant thing, it's complicated because there are so many different Protestant sects. You have Pentecostals, Baptists, Methodists, Unitarians, Episcopalians, Presbyterians, etc. Each one is a little bit different, and what's considered "sinful" can vary even by church. IIRC here in the South there was a minister who actually refused to marry interracial couples. :/

Oh yeah I don't know how it is in the US, I heard there are a lot of sects. In Europe there is only one major branch of Protestants, almost as big as roman catholicism, the one directly going back to Luther. That's the one I'm familiar with and talking about. (Of course there are smaller sects here too, but they don't matter in the grand scheme of things, but yeah I should have been more specific).

By the way, I'm an Atheist. I didn't want to defend religion, but those raving about the old testament are in my book crazy outliers (from what I hear sadly more prominent in the US, or at least louder in the media). Protestants in Europe though are really progressive with being pro choice, allowing women to be priests, allowing priests to marry etc. I honestly can't think of a single bad thing to say about them.

As for the rest of the thread... sigh.

Yeah that's why I always laugh when someone tries to quote the bible for the sake of making a point. For every quote that makes perfect sense there are 10 with concepts that are ass-backwards and have no place in the modern world. The bible contains some good philosophy but also a lot of "old" ideas that just need to die for the sake of the worlds progression into a brighter future.

All the retarded crazy shit is in the old testament. There is a reason Protestants focus on the new testament and consider the old one to be more of a historical document.

By my count, the ratio of insults to alternative explanations (re: Captain Capitalism & his Judgmental, Microaggressive Needs-a-Trigger-Warning Diagram) is roughly 5 to 0. This infers that he's hit a live wire.

When a naked men runs through a mall shouting aliens planted a satellite in his butt, and people shake their heads at that, I guess we have to infer he's hit a live wire. Or, he's just a loon.

Beat Shadows of Mordor.

Pretty fun game. It takes the concept of Assassin's Creed but builds an actual game around it. There is still some useless collecting, though not as much as in some current open world games. The main missions are great though and the core mechanic of scouting out special Orks and planning how to assassinate them is very engaging. Good game, should start to be affordable now too (I got it for 18 bucks).

ROM Hacking Discussion / Re: Dreamcast ARC Files

Arc(hive) is a generic data file that could be anything. Game or developer-specifc. It's like asking how to extract sound from a SNES ROM. It's just a data blob and you need to reverse engineer the internal formats.

I never used the term End of Gaming either, people...

It's only directly in the topic title...

inb4 word hair splitting how 'end' isn't the same word as 'fall'.
