4681  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Final Fantasy 12- Yay or Nay? on: December 08, 2007, 02:24:05 PM
Someday eventually I will get to Final Fantasy 12 (after 7, 8, 9, and 10).  I'm wondering if I should be picking up 12 for the backlog.  I don't know how I feel about the turn based battles disappearing.  And some of the reviews said that there's a ridiculous amount of grinding, which I happen to dislike intensely.  Was the demo that came with Dragon Quest 8 at all representative of the game?  Because I have that-I tried it a long time ago and wasn't thrilled by it.
4682  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Four Final Fantasy's in one month? on: December 08, 2007, 11:49:31 AM
Over 20 hours into FF7 right now.  And I'm still on the first bloody disc! I'm making my second trip to the Gold Saucer on the hunt for some keystone and looking for the Temple of the Ancients!
Great, fantastic game.  I can see why so many people love it.  To go from playing something like Final Fantasy 6 one generation to Final Fantasy 7 the next-I doubt we'll ever see that large a leap in presentation ever again.

Just thought I'd pop in and post my latest gif animation work.  Well it's not actually mine, I only changed two frames but hey I'm still learning!

Thanks! I thought I would make a new one for the Xbox 360 smile

Actually I got the impression that at least 90% of us are long past our 'finals' stage of our life.  Unless of course you're talking about the ultimate 'finals' stage which all living beings must go through eventually...I hope I pass!   icon_confused
4686  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gaming Trend Console Demographics (poll) on: December 08, 2007, 04:25:41 AM
Interesting results so far.  We're sitting at about 90% ownership rate of Xbox 360, 75% for Nintendo DS, 50% for Wii and PSP and only about 33% for PS3.
4687  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Star Trek gif on: December 08, 2007, 01:07:16 AM
Wondering if you guys can help me find a Star Trek gif.  I'm pretty sure it was posted on here (probably in the NSFW thread).  It's the one with the black guy who's sitting at the console and screaming. I don't even know what character that is-that would probably help me narrow my search smile
4688  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Gaming Trend Console Demographics (poll) on: December 08, 2007, 12:55:37 AM
Yay it worked!  crybaby

I've got a PS3, PSP, Nintendo DS
4689  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gaming Trend Console Demographics (poll) on: December 08, 2007, 12:55:05 AM
A poll over on QT3 got me thinking about just what the console demographics over here are.  The poll over at QT3 confirmed for me what I had always assumed which was that there is about 100% 360 ownership and 4% PS3 ownership.  I'm just curious as to what it's like over here.  There doesn't seem to be any option for multiple voting on these forums though.  I've set it so that you can vote up to 5 times but that may have to be 5 different times. We'll see.
4690  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: NHL 08 updates on: December 07, 2007, 08:26:49 AM
Still getting no love from EA.  How long did it take to download the updates anyways?  I have 8 to download and the first three take FOREVER (like 25 minutes) and then I get disconnected from EA's servers.  I'm having a lot o problems just getting adjusted to the controls too.  I came straight from NHL 2k3 and just getting adjusted is KILLING me!
4691  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New GTA IV trailer...annnnd, yup, it's definitely a GTA game. on: December 07, 2007, 07:30:51 AM
I didn't notice anything strange about the animations.  They looked great actually.  And I don't think there was any actual gameplay in that trailer so I don't see how anybody could criticize the animations.  By animation we're talking about how a character moves, correct?
4692  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Lost Odyssey - new trailer and impressions on: December 07, 2007, 07:13:24 AM
Nice looking game but the lip synching is terrible!  Will that be fixed?
4693  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nintendo line up for Q1 2008 on: December 07, 2007, 03:51:40 AM
Well no single title jumps out at me.  Perhaps I haven't been following the Wii side of things enough.  I see Mario Kart is there but Mario Kart gets a big meh from me.
4694  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] Pain Impressions on: December 07, 2007, 12:22:35 AM
I see they already have downloadable characters for it.  Like two days after it's been released?  They're already milking it.  Should have been included with the download in my opinion
4695  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Nintendo line up for Q1 2008 on: December 07, 2007, 12:14:47 AM
That Wii list makes me wonder why anyone would want to have a Wii.
4696  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: PSN update (including the PSP Store for PC) on: December 07, 2007, 12:12:54 AM
Cool free themes!  Do I have to wait a week to download them? slywink
4697  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Free content will now be withheld from Xbox Live Silver accounts for a week on: December 06, 2007, 01:14:09 PM
At least we're disagreeing.  It hasn't even raised a peep on QT3.  Those people would be happy if their 360 came with a rapestick.
4698  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Free content will now be withheld from Xbox Live Silver accounts for a week on: December 05, 2007, 11:49:25 PM
Insteresting debate! I don't think I can add anything that hasn't already been stated.  I guess I'll just go check my PS3 and see if there are any FREE, on time demos available! smile

Who cares if the AI cheats (I noticed it a bit in the PS2 version but didn't really care) if you can play online. That's where it's at (especially if there's a way to win cards from other people online).

Ooh I could just picture people turning off their consoles as they're about to lose!

Ours is still in progress.  My girlfriend is Japanese and hence it's her first time with a real (but fake) Christmas tree.  I'm not much better.  Pics to come later.
4701  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Going to Japan! What to do and who to meet? on: December 05, 2007, 02:38:39 PM
To be honest I'm not a huge fan of Japan.  Yes the women are what keep me here (my girlfriend being first and foremost!).  But I'm not a big fan of the food, or the temples or much else.  Don't let me discourage you though! I'm sure it's a great place to visit!  Tell us what you are interested in and perhaps we can give you some advice.
4702  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Four Final Fantasy's in one month? on: December 05, 2007, 02:35:06 PM
Well I'm 8 hours in and we've just left Midgar and Cloud is telling us about his backstory.  Quite good stuff-I can't remember any of it hardly!

that's not even mentioning that 50 bucks a year is nothing...

$50 a year for say 5 years (the life of a console) and that's over half of what your next console will cost.  Almost an entire console back in the last generation.

yeah...and over 5 years, that's nothing

No that's over half the cost of a new generation console.  I'm amazed that people won't buy a PS3 because they think it's $50 bucks overpriced.  Yet those same people (not necessarily you, Kepow) are willing to pay another $250 on top of the $400 they've already spent for the Xbox 360.  Madness I tell you!

People who are unwilling to pay $5 a month for gold access can, I suspect, wait 7 days to get a demo.

It could also be said that people who are dumb enough to pay for online content will....be content to know that they're getting something for their money?  Hmm that didn't come out the way it sounded in my head smile
4707  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Four Final Fantasy's in one month? on: December 04, 2007, 12:51:23 PM
Interesting. I was wondering if I should do that with mine.  Are the graphics any better at all?  The texture smoothing that the PS2 does helps get rid of some of FF7's warts smile

I think we've already got a few blogs going around here don't we?  Godzilla Blitz is doing one of his playthrough of the entire FF series-in Japanese.  And someone else is doing one on all the RPG's for the Playstation!  To be honest, I'm having a hard enough time finishing the damn games without doing all that work on a blog! smile

Played about 35 hours of FF7, 30 hours of FF9, and about 40 hours of FFX.  I never beat any of them though.

105 hours of JRPG without finishing any of the games?  icon_eek



I think I'd rather shave my head with a cheese grater while chewing on tin foil.


Yeah it's pretty sad-talk about a waste.  I've done that with a lot of games actually.  30 or 40 hours in Chrono Cross-never finished it.  25 hours into Xenosaga-never finished it.  I managed to finish Ico because it was only about 10 hours!  I put about 17 hours into Okami and never finished it.  Talk about a waste of god damn time!!  The problem with RPG's is that once you step away for a while it's really hard to get back into it.  You forget the story and what the heck you're supposed to be doing.  You guys are right- four games in a month is a little bit much.  My goal for December will be to beat FF7 only.
4712  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Four Final Fantasy's in one month? on: December 03, 2007, 11:26:53 PM
I have a confession-I have never actually finished a FF game.  I beat FF Tactics but I played with a friend.  Played about 35 hours of FF7, 30 hours of FF9, and about 40 hours of FFX.  I never beat any of them though.  I'm wondering if it would be possible to go through and beat them all in the month of December.  Is it do you think?  If I start over from the beginning?  I don't have a job so that will help.  On the other hand I don't want to be sitting in front of the TV permanently for a month.  Is it possible to rush through them without doing too much grinding and very few sidequests and finish them in say 30 hours or 35 hours?
4713  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Favourite videogame music? on: December 03, 2007, 02:02:37 PM
I love "To Zanarkand" from Final Fantasy 10.

What else is good?

Well I just had a good game with ATB and was throughly and soundly thrashed. Looks like I need to play a little bit more!  Oh and for future reference, three minute turns are NOT long enough and 30,000 points are just way to many! smile
4716  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Final Fantasy College Saga (live action Youtube) on: December 03, 2007, 01:02:32 AM
Ok clocking in at 42 minutes this was way too long to watch all of it but I was very impressed by the first five minutes! It seems very professionally done (for amateurs) and in just the first five minutes you'll see a lot of hallmarks of the FF series (and RPG's in general).  Fantastic job!

Unfortunately Wife prefers fake and since we have an abundance of dumb animals that would love nothing more than to get at the water under the tree - I agreed to compromise and accept a fake one again this year. Typing this as wife and daughter are hanging ornaments on it.


Maybe it's just be but I don't see the compromise here.  It looks like your wife simply won and convinced you that you were getting a compromise.
