5. Re: Why Do People Care About JRPGs? Jul 1, 2012, 09:50 shinchan0s
 
I used to play a lot too. Favorites are Earthbound, FF6, Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy Tactics. These days though I just can't get past the dumb character designs and juvenile stories. Sometimes, after playing one, I start wishing we dropped a third bomb on Tokyo (I kid!). I just stick to Mario and Zelda nowadays.

Eh. Morrowind and Oblivion's expansions were pretty mediocre as well.

Oh man. This game is going to come out before Europa Barbarorum 2. If the game isn't moddable I see a lot of people sticking with M2TW tho.

Anyway, I think everybody knew that the next game was going to be Rome 2. I hope this announcement means an early 2013 release!

I liked the original the best (even with the bad translation). EP and IS were okay too. You know, before the series went mainstream and gone full anime. Don't mind me I'm just jaded as hell. It's probably the childhood nostalgia.

You describing any of the persona series full on anime(you cant be talking about the visuals right? I mean even the orginals had anime visuals) confuses me. I mean, One of the things I constantly hear and agree with about the last 2 is they were not like a anime whatsoever. They had damn good writing and if wouldn't be weird at all of the next persona got rid of the anime visuals.

Ok, now I'm confused. The first two had a different lead art designer from the rest of the series. Forgot his name, but he does all the other Megami Tensei games. His art style is kind of hard to describe, but "Japanese gothic pop with Tim Burton thrown in" might come close. They're not anime inspired at all apart from the setting (they're students). How are the later games not like anime? They added a robot girl for example. It's totally valid to say that the later games are more anime-like visually.

I'm not going to argue "what's anime?" because I stopped watching that crap after college, but it's kind of hard for any of the games to veer away from anime conventions when they take place in a Japanese High school. Saying the later games went full anime was kind of throwaway line sorry. The newer games are more mainstream though (which is why they're crushing successes). I just thought the earlier games were darker and had more unique gameplay. The earlier games seemed "more adult" (EP's characters were adults) and the combat system was more tactical. They stream-lined the later games, added waaaay more cutscenes and added stuff like dating.

Boy, the Persona series sure has gone to shit.

Based on what? Persona 4 that was perhaps the best in the series? Or the fighting game by the guilty gear and blazblue series?

So you think buying weapons, cbills and xp boosters are not pay to win? Unlocks and progression speed are part of the gameplay, paying gets you better unlocks faster even with less skill, gameplay effects -> pay-to-win.

It may not be terribly imbalanced, but it is pay to win. And that is everything that is wrong with F2P crap like this.

Exactly. I think guys get seduced by the logic that if said unlock is attainable without spending real money then it's okay. It all depends. I've played waaay too many F2P games on iOS and I know that unlockables and enhancements aren't worth the time spent hoarding the xp/points versus just outright buying it. If the F2P scheme isn't imbalanced at the start you can bet your ass that a company like SOE will make it that way eventually. SOE needs gamers to spend money. PS2 isn't going to turn a profit just buy selling skins.

News Comments > StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm "99% Done"
49. Re: StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm Jun 17, 2012, 17:19 shinchan0s
 
MattyC, Starcraft (2+ years) and Diablo 2's (3-4 years) development times don't compare to their sequels. You don't think Diablo3's 10+ years was at all excessive? In that timeframe Bethesda released THREE Elder Scrolls games (not to mention Fallout and the expansions).

I like the quality from Blizzard games too, but enough's enough man. I could see 10 years being needed for a very ambitious, genre-busting game, but pretty soon "playing it safe" is going to bite them in the ass if they continue along at the same pace they're going now. None of my friends bought Diablo 3 or Starcraft 2. We played the crap out of the old games. Inevitably though, fresher games came along that made us lose interest. That's what I see happening unless Blizzard's Titan becomes that new killer IP. I have my doubts. They've been riding that huge wave from the 90's for too long.

Plenty of people have heard about this MMO. Nice try though

They're just practicing for when they illegally cross the border. Americano eh!

Jesus, you're dumb.

Anyway, my wife's from Peru so we have a lot of friends from Bolivia, Colombia, Brazil, etc. Orogogus is right, it just depends on the context of the conversation, American is a term used for anybody living in the Americas. Still, when they're talking about a guy from the United States the only term I've heard them use is "Americano".

unfortunately the modern "christianity" is so far removed from the original ideas and practices, mainly due to the obfuscated contextual references of gospels (initially approved for public consumption by the council of nicea) included in the king james version, already retranslated numerous times, and edited for cohesion by the church in the middle ages.. some orginal ideas remained, but have been mostly ignored over the years

I agree as a practicing (sparingly) Catholic myself. A lot of Christians don't know that there were a lot of different branches of Christianity before Rome canonized it. A lot of today's evangelicals seem to have a hard on for the crazy stuff like the Book of Revelations. I personally like the Gnostic texts from Syria-Egypt (Ptolemaic Empire) like "Thunder, Perfect Mind":

For I am the first and the last.

I am the honored one and the scorned one.

I am the whore and the holy one.

I am the wife and the virgin.

I am <the mother> and the daughter.

I am the members of my mother.

I am the barren one
and many are her sons.

I am she whose wedding is great,
and I have not taken a husband.

I am the midwife and she who does not bear.

I am the solace of my labor pains.

I am the bride and the bridegroom,
and it is my husband who begot me.

I am the mother of my father
and the sister of my husband
and he is my offspring.

I am the slave of him who prepared me.

I am the ruler of my offspring.
But he is the one who begot me before the time on a birthday.
And he is my offspring in (due) time,
and my power is from him.

I am the staff of his power in his youth,
and he is the rod of my old age.
And whatever he wills happens to me.

I am the silence that is incomprehensible
and the idea whose remembrance is frequent.

I am the voice whose sound is manifold
and the word whose appearance is multiple.

I am the utterance of my name.

Why, you who hate me, do you love me,
and hate those who love me?

You who deny me, confess me,
and you who confess me, deny me.

You who tell the truth about me, lie about me,
and you who have lied about me, tell the truth about me.

You who know me, be ignorant of me,
and those who have not known me, let them know me.

Modern feminism in MY religion? Mind utterly blown.

I'll just put a LOL@fallofamericanempire in here - RollinThundr gonna leave it if Obama gets back in, to goto Canada? Thundr, you do know that all of us in the Commonwealth all each put a five dollar note in the post and send it to our Queen each week. (The Queen face is on stamps for a reason!)

It's what we do, so she can build an army and take back America.

Just joking, it's good for morale, America is shit and the Commonwealth don't want it.


Apparently if you don't use sarcasm tags on BN people get confused. At anyrate it's still amazing to me how people can be so up in arms about regular American citizen's tax rates, yet they're fine with government spending like the world is going to end tomorrow.

Gotta love that entitlement mentality.

I think you'd find that most people are for reduced spending. The difference is that you have one side that wants to solve the problem by working things out long term and the other side that thinks we should tear everything down. The Founding Fathers developed a government that was designed to act slow and deliberately, but you got atleast 30% of the population that believes the country should be run like a business. Their representatives also don't feel like negotiating. That's the problem.

Perfect example of why government shouldn't use taxpayer money to invest in specific businesses. Other than the Wall Street bailouts and the bailouts of GM and Chrysler, which both the Democratic and Republican parties are guilty of, the three worst examples of this kind of stupidity are Solyndra (brought to you by Barack Obama and the national Democratic party), 38 Studios (brought to you by the Democratic party of Rhode Island), and Evergreen Solar (brought to you by Governor Deval Patrick and the Democratic party of Massachusetts). If you want to bring jobs to your state or to your nation, lower the corporate tax rate across the board, and improve public education by firing bad teachers and getting rid of tenure at public universities. Curt Schilling is indeed a hypocrite for accepting taxpayer-funded loan guarantees -- it's just corporate welfare.

Jesus Christ. What am I reading? I can't believe you're bringing up Solyndra. Out of 20 BILLION dollars doled out to renewal energy companies only Solyndra has defaulted. OMG - you mean some investments can fail? That's unpossible! Do you, like, have any experience in the real life business world or do you just patrol conservative blogs all day? You think venture capitalists get a return on even half of their investments? The Department of Energy's vetting process was actually quite rigorous. A large part of the stimulus funds haven't even been utilized because of it. Does that sound like they're giving out the money recklessly?

RI investing in 38 Studios was obviously a huge mistake and the politicians will pay for it, but you actually believe that something like renewable energy should only be left to private investors? The US would be the ONLY country in the world to do that then. There's a difference between investing in an energy company and a videogame company. History is chock full of examples of government successfully propping up infant industries (see the Korean chaebol as an example)... even in the United States!

I'm sorry, but energy and food are things I'm not comfortable leaving to the whims of your average idiot shareholder/speculator. Subsidies there can only be good things. I just don't understand this country's sudden worship of private ownership.

Creative Assembly made games after M2TW less moddable. For instance, you can't alter the campaign map. A lot of other stuff is hardcoded, like the UI for example, so they can't be changed without dedicated tools from CA. It would be impossible to make a mod like Third Age with Shogun 2.

I understand why they're doing this - why buy the next TW game when the old one has a killer mod... but that just means were limited to CA's limp-dick offerings. The vanilla games are always embarrassingly bad.
Yeah I mean it couldn't have anything to do with all the screaming over the amount of cheating in MP or anything right? Which is why they finally got around to adding a Mod_flag.

If that's the reason. It's a pretty dumb one. How many TW play multiplayer much less cheat in multiplayer? Oh well. TW series is worse off for it.
