And finally, I need to regain some of the ground I've lost due to my hiatus from Guitar Hero 2, earning my deserved top spot on my friends list in the leaderboards again. icon_biggrin

Since 76+ hours just wasn't enough the first time around, I started FFXII again last night.  Had a $15 credit at GS, so I picked up the collector's edition this time.  That FF retrospective was very cool.

Not sure exactly how yet, but I'm going to try and go a slightly different route with the character development this time.  Need to read back through this thread and get some ideas.  smile

I'll be starting Final Fantasy XII again, since there's really nothing els out there that grabs me right now.  Picked up the collectors edition last night.

I really want to like this and given my gaming tastes I know I should be drooling over it.  Gorgeous graphics?  Check.  Quirky JRPG style?  Check.  Great music?  Check.  Yet something about it just rubs me wrong.  Mainly it's due to the completely ludicrous premise, but I'm having a hard time working up any excitement for this one.

10054  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: It's May. What Are the Best Games You've Played So Far This Year (All Platfo on: May 14, 2007, 01:02:20 PM
360:  Guitar Hero 2.  Leaderboards add a whole 'nother dimension to the game.  Catan would be second, and unfortunately there's really nothing else I've enjoyed on it so far.  Got a case of buyers remorse right now, at least until Mass Effect and/or Blue Dragon come out.  frown

DS/GBA:  Final Fantasy VI, with Puzzle Quest a very close runner up.

PC:  Dreamfall.  Pretty easy decision, as it's one of the best games I've played on any platform in a long, long time.  The Sam & Max games would be second.

PS2:  God of War 2

A couple games of Catan yesterday morning, and about 1/2 hour of Guitar Hero 2 on Saturday.  Spent most of the weekend trying to fix my sprinkler system and watching the NBA playoffs.  It was probably the least gaming I've done on a weekend in months.

10057  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: New DS Lite Owner Here on: May 12, 2007, 05:17:21 PM
1. Puzzle Quest is pretty much the only DS game you'll need.  smile  It's the only one I'd consider a "must have" right now.  Also may want to check out some of the excellent GBA RPG's if you haven't already (i.e. Final Fantasy VI, Golden Sun, Tactics Ogre, etc.)

2. Osu! Tatakae! Ouendan, if rhythm games are your thing. 

3. I've never bought (or needed) any DS accessories.

4. Best Buy, Circuit City, or Gamestop/EB

Its turn based, with some sort of ATB system and QTE to order your army around. Or something. Its an RPG.

Opposite for me.  Sounds very cool, and I'm very interested.

You guys know that the rumored FF7 remake wasn't a remake and is instead Crisis Core, a prequel action-rpg about Zack, the soldier who trained Cloud and once journeyed with Sepheroth (and even met Aeris).

I know about that one, but there have been rumors floating around for years that they will do a full-fledged FFVII remake on either PSP or PS3.  It's probably just wishful thinking by FFVII fanboys like myself, but I've heard it a number of different times.

I could be wrong, but I recall hearing about a FF7 remake on the way for the DS.

I've heard rumblings of a FF7 remake on PSP, but never on DS.
10062  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Atlus USA, how I love you on: May 11, 2007, 01:09:44 PM
I put about 15 hours into Growlanser III.  It was enjoyable, but the ridiculously slow leveling and difficulty curve (there was a massive jump difficulty in difficulty around the 10 hour mark, iirc) prevented me from finishing it.  It was fun enough that I'll definitely give Growlanser V a look.
10063  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Weekend Playlist 11 May 07 on: May 11, 2007, 01:06:06 PM
Probably not much for me.  Working the part-time job, fixing the sprinkler system, watching the Jazz/Warriors, and other assorted yardwork and housework isn't going to leave much time for gaming.  Might get in some Catan, but that's probably about it.

Quote from: EngineNo9 on May 11, 2007, 12:16:18 AM

I am also begrudgingly allowing myself to come to the conclusion that, like Misguided, this is just not my type of racing game.  It's just a bit too sterile for me.  I enjoy the visceral thrills of rally and such.  I will now be trasferring my excitement to DIRT: Colin McRae Off-Road and FlatOut: Ultimate Carnage.  And of course PGR4 and Burnout Paradise whenever they arrive. 

I want to be clear I have great respect for people that like Forza and that ilk. I'm not knocking the game in any way shape or form.

Tried the demo last night, and I'm with Misguided & Engine on this one.  While I can certainly appreciate Forza for what it is, it's just not very fun for me.   I much prefer a turbo-charged, fast paced arcade racer, so I'll be waiting for the next Burnout or Flatout.

10066  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: How many generations until Gamestop is out of business? on: May 10, 2007, 01:29:27 PM
FWIW, Gamestop now does PC game downloads from their website.  I haven't tried it yet, but I know it's available.

While I'm not opposed to complete digital distribution, I do like to get discs and manuals for my games.  Also keep in mind that not everyone has the means to broadband access for downloads.  I think they'd be excluding a pretty major portion of their user base if they eliminated disc media completely.

sorry, but i don't get this. i sorta understood why they re-did ffiii (to the extent it'd never been released in na), but if they're gonna redo iv (or any of the rest of'm, for that matter), either do'm for the ps3 or don't bother...

really enjoyed the gameboy ffiv, but have no interest in replaying a remade portable version - it was just fine as is/was...


It makes sense in that it would a) require a lot less resources and time (I assume) to recreate the game for DS as opposed to PS3, and b)  the user base for the DS is 10X that of the PS3.  Figure in that anything with the Final Fantasy name on it sells like mad, and a DS retooling makes Squeenix more money in the end.  Plain and simple.

How do you define a "derail"?  While I agree that malicious derails or stalking are uncalled for, nearly everything else I see around here is just basic ebbs and flows of conversation.  I've noticed very few cases where things get so off track that it causes issues, but maybe I'm just blind to it.  Some people are smart-asses, some people are serious, some people have good points, some don't, and some just like to goof around.  I guess I just don't see how it's an issue.

Also keep in mind that sometimes things are said which are applicable to the discussion in the poster's mind, but maybe not in someone else's.    I'd hate to see us start editing or deleting posts simply because one person feels a particular comment wasn't relevant enough to the original topic.   That would cause far more of a problem than the occasional topic derailing, imo.
