I pre-ordered the witch-touching game. I thought it would be funny to goof on, but last week I read "Welcome to the N.H.K" and now I just feel like a pedo. I tried to cancel the order, but I think it's already shipped. I'm not going to end up on some list, am I?

Yesterday when I was washing my face in the shower I accidentally slugged myself in so hard in the mouth that I ended up tasting blood. This wouldn't be so embarrassing if it was only the first time that I kicked my own ass while showering. An earlier incident involved me slicing the inside of my nose with a jagged fingernail and then looking down to see blood pouring down my chest and pooling up on the floor below. For a moment I was seriously afraid I was going to die lying in a puddle of my own nose blood. Not really the most dignified way to go.

Anyway, I think M.Nicolai wins(?) the thread so far.

Everything about that Nibelheim scene gave me the chills. It was at that point that I realized I really loved this game and its plot. It was so spooky and exactly the sort of thing I like in "science gone awry" stories. The only things that made me like Sephiroth as a villain (and maybe "like" isn't the best word) is Jenova and the way he messes with Cloud's mind and kills Aeris.

But Jenova is definitely my favorite part of the game. Everything about "her" is just freaky. Some sort of alien parasite that's been around since the planet's beginning, practically, referred to by ancient cultures as "the calamity from out of the skies," or whatever. I totally get a kick out of that stuff.

Actually I like any story where something scary is referenced in various cultures' legends and myths. Take Fire in the Sky, for example. It has one scary, blink-and-you'll-miss-it part where a reporter is telling the history of the woods where Travis Walton was abducted and he says that the local Indians considered the place to be evil, because in their stories, demons would come down from the sky to take away children.

Spooks me out every time.

I was a fairly late PS1 adopter. Early '99, I didn't have much of a library built up, and was faced with two interesting-looking options at the store:

Metal Gear Solid
Brave Fencer Musashi

So, I made my choice, and played it to obsessive completion:

The only FF game I ever finished was VII, and I had to resort to a cheat device to do it. (and it was still almost too hard for me)

Torgo
07-02-2007, 09:43 AM
Don't worry, I cheated to beat FFVII as well. But people kept erasing my saves halfway through the first disc, so it wasn't a matter of difficulty so much as it was just being fed up and wanting to beat it.

Excitemike
07-02-2007, 10:09 AM
I played it throught to the end, but I couldn't get throught that last cave and I just wanted to see how the thing ended.

I'd like to go back and finish IX someday. I got right up to the final boss, decided to level up some more and then lost the memory card with the save on it.

Torgo
07-02-2007, 10:12 AM
I lost both my PS1 memory cards. I've also booted up two different copies of FFII/IV only to find all the saves gone. For bonus points of awkward fun, neither of the copies were mine.

I think I might have the kiss of death when it comes to saves.

Meg

I sold all of my classic games and systems. Earthbound, FF2, FF3, Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, Snatcher, Policenauts, all the Panzer Dragoon games (Saga included), Lunar games, Ys series, a slew of Turbo Duo games, and other stuff I'm sure I'm forgetting. Most of the games I only played through once, and some, like Policenauts, I never finished. I, uh, only got a mediocre ending in CT, and I never bothered to see a proper ending. I don't miss the games at all, strangely.

When I moved to Hawaii I capitulated to my parents wishes and gave away the small bundle of Atari 2600/5200/7800 games I had (the hardware had finally gone belly-up about a year before). I've smuggled a few good ones out though in the hopes of one day picking up a working 7800 again. (Joust, Food Fight, and Moon Patrol alone are worth it).

I started drafting it and it turned into a screed against moe, and why maybe it was inappropriate to give a game like that a teen rating. And as I thought about it I realised the loudest way to speak out was with my wallet, and now I'm having, like, a crisis of faith that I'm supporting this industry. And this morning I thought of a great way it would tie into a larger piece that, with a lot of research, could turn into this really amazing article about how this new type of interactivity is being perceived by the non-gaming public.

No shame in that; FFVII was great the first time around. It's just one of those things that you should never play twice, or after, say, 1997, because then the shortcomings become glaringly obvious.

ORLY? (http://www.gametap.com/home/play/browse/index.html?searchTerm=Saturn)

Besides, Saturn emulation isn't the question. These games originally ran on CPS2 hardware, which has been successfully done on the PS2 and XBox. Capcom would port the arcade originals, not the Saturn ports.

If you ever want to play Panzer Dragoon Saga but lack a Saturn SSF (http://www.emulator-zone.com/doc.php/saturn/ssf.html) plays it very nearly perfectly, though it is my understanding lacking a Saturn is rarely the problem. If you don't want to play Panzer Dragoon Saga, well, you're my mortal enemy and must be destroyed. I also can't imagine hating Zwei, as it improved on the original in every conceivable way. I'll give you Orta, if only because it felt like it was trying way to hard to be Zwei.

I had a Saturn (and only a Saturn) during the PS1 era and I had a pretty good time with it.

I mean, I think it's great now. But at the time it didn't live up to whatever my expectations were. I needed repeat play-throughs to really appreciate it.

I have never beaten, and furthermore have made no immediate plans to beat Chrono Trigger or any Final Fantasy. Or any Square Enix Game. Or any plain old Squaresoft game. The one plain old Enix game I've beaten is Terranigma, and I enjoyed it far more than 75% of Chrono Trigger I actually got through.

To top it all off, I feel that Devil May Cry 3 is the best game the PS2 ever had.

That's honestly what ruins the show for me most every time I try to watch it. Its like, "Hey, look its 18 minutes of fairly funny content! Lets ruin the last 4-6 minutes with forced drama that forces people to learn a life lesson!" To be honest, though, this type of format(comedy->forced drama) is the reason why a lot of comedies end up being pretty crappy these days.

Man, I think I stopped watching TGIF the first year Family Matters started. I'll never forget one of the shows they used to anchor it:

Sometimes the world looks perfect, nothing to rearrange.
Sometimes you just get a feeling like you need some kind of change.
No matter what the odds are this time,
Nothing's gonna stand in my way.
This flame in my heart
And a long lost friend
Gives every dark tunnel a light at the end.

And I guess my confession is that I have a pretty incredible memory for the theme songs of shows I watch from the mid-80s to the early 90s. Sitcoms, cartoons, heck even dramas with just musical intros (MacGuyver, Quantum Leap), name them and I sing them. It's my bar trick.

And I definitely remember the second TGIF theme (It's Friday night... and the mood is right).

But definitely 1990/91 was my last serious TGIF year. It was that year that I realized I watched too much television. And I also started to become more intrested in others things... which I'd like to say were girls but I think that took another year. It was probably computer games.

Might as well roll up a bunch of confessions into one giant post:

Games I can't stand despite really giving them a few chances
Final Fantasy II and VIII (mostly for experimenting with the FF formula but having awful results)

Chrono Cross (nothing like what I expected, and for all the cool features it had--I loved the ability to run from boss fights--it had just as many that pissed me off)

Vagrant Story (this game is frustrating, fascinating mess with the most irritatingly vague equipment and item system I've ever played)

Star Ocean 3 (I don't think this game is beloved, but it takes everything that was cool about the first two games and shits down their necks by going 3D and doing it really badly)

Odin Sphere (this one in particular broke my heart because I wanted to love it but ended up frustrated and disappointed)

Games I like though I know I shouldn't
Xenogears (this was the first big RPG I played after getting a Playstation, and I have fond memories of everything about it even if I realize it's not that great of a game with a completely WTF inducing second disc)

Castlevania: Circle of the Moon (this was the reason I bought a GBA, and it's still my favorite of the GBA trilogy, mostly because Dawn of Sorrow did everything that Aria of Sorrow did only better)

Banjo Kazooie (in all fairness, this is mostly nostalgia from a time when I was best friends with a RPG hating Nintendo diehard who swore by racing games and bad 3D platformers)

Golden Axe 2 (one of the few non-puzzle games my sister would actually play. It's so damned hard and cheap, but we always believed we might someday manage to beat the game)

Yeah, I don't understand the hate for Circle of the Moon either. It's fairly generic and there isn't any story to speak of, but the gameplay is solid and fun to play through.

I'm just guessing everyone tried to play it on the original GBA where it was apparently impossible to see. Having first played it on my SP, I don't have that problem.

And, uh, back on topic: I enjoyed the original Power Rangers. And I was 15 or so when it came out.

I've always been curious as to why people actually like FFVIII, because it seems like the kind of love-it-or-hate-it experience that I'll never understand the other side of the debate on. I hate FFVIII because all of the things it tries fail miserably in my eyes and it's a huge mess.

Savathun
07-23-2007, 12:35 PM
I've always liked it, mostly because of all the little extras they toss in (like that shadow in the lake thing, the tonberry king, Jumbo Cactuar, the rocks with writing on them) as well as how much more fun the battle system seemed to me in comparison with FF7 -- which, don't get me wrong, I also really liked.

I had been really anxious to play the game for at least a year before it came out, so I'm surprised I wasn't dissapointed from all the expectation and hype I'd worked up.

Zef
07-23-2007, 01:09 PM
I LOVED FF8 when it came out, and I still like it a hell of a lot more than I do 9. Say what you will about the plot and characters (which were mocked to hell and back by that hilarious Let's Play! thread on Something Awful) I liked 'em well enough when I was 19. About the only thing I didn't do in that game was Triple Triad, but I abused the crap out of everything else.

It's also memorable because I finished it long before anyone at a local magazine I used to contribute to back then (Atomix,) so when I took my memory card to their offices, a small crowd gathered to watch the Ulty battles. :D

I think VIII has one of the best battle systems in the entire series and it was nice how you could turn off random encounters. I think being chased by X-ATM092 in Dollet, most of the Deling City bits minus the sewer were some of the coolest moments in gaming history and I think the relationship between Laguna and Squall is one of the coolest spoilers ever. That'd be where my love for the game ends and the hate begins.

ScrambledGregs
07-23-2007, 07:19 PM
As for me, I hated everything about FFVIII. The characters were shite, the story was convoluted nonsense even if the translation was better than FFVII, the Draw system was the worst magic system ever, the Junction system made no sense to me and is apparently really easy to break, the whole "everybody levels up as you do, so it's pointless to even try fighting anything if you can beat it at any level with the right spells" was idiotic, and I just plain didn't like it.

Admittedly I only played til the end of the first disc, but if I'm not enjoying a game by the time I'm several hours in, I don't keep going. I tried to force myself to finish FFII but I quickly realized (I say quickly, but I was probably 10 hours in) that it's wiser to spend more time on games I enjoy than to try to make myself finish ones I don't.

I liked it too. The battle system is actually a pretty interesting experiment, since you have to pay attention to the turn/execution bars for chaining attacks together. The Dressphere System, for all the flak it caught, is also a clever evolution of the Job System.

On the other hand, the rest of the game is all over the place. There are far, far, FAR too many sidequests and secrets that are beyond even reasonable exploration, and most of them are required to get the "good" endings --more than FF9, X-2 feels like it was made specifically for selling strategy guides (or for looking up 100% story completion guides on GameFAQs.) Sadly, the nonlinear progression (one of the strengths of X-2's gameplay) means that the narrative is disjointed and incoherent half the time, and bipolar the rest. You can have Charlie's Angels running all over Spira pulling goofball jobs and herding monkeys in one scene, only to have them go through traumatic experiences involving civil wars and the nature of death itself during the next.

I maintain that discs 1, 2, and 4 of FFVIII are a fine game.

Oh yes, the battle system was neat. It's just everything else that I had a problem with. And frankly, FFX had an excellent ending. Why'd they have to go and ruin it?

All this discussion of Final Fantasy VIII and I still can't get over the fact that anyone on this forum wouldn't want a DS.

EDIT: I guess my confession would be that the only game with Final Fantasy in the title that I have played since Final Fantasy VI was Final Fantasy Tactics Advance.

the best part of that game was that rinoa uses her fucking super dog to hit enemies

that dog should have replaced rinoa

So she was just a poor replacement for FFVI's bad-ass Shadow + Interceptor?

I do like FFVIII, but Rinoa is no ninja.

Confessions:

1) I got to the last mission of Advance Wars 2, but could never finish it. I really love the series, but I just found that mission too hard.

2) I bought Wind Waker a few years back, but I've never gotten past the 2nd dungeon.

3) I prefer the Super Mario All-Stars versions to the originals.

May Miyamoto have mercy on my soul.

Only what, like 2 dungeons to go after that? That was the shortest Zelda ever on dungeons, but the longest on playtime because it took foreveeeeeeeeeer to get everywhere.

... I'd think Majora's Mask or Minish Cap would be shorter in regards to dungeon count. Each of them was pretty huge anyway.

GOD, THAT MISSION WAS SO FRUSTRATING. My entire strategy eventually hinged on creating a massive diversion on the bottom of the map while a lone bomber, carrying the hopes and dreams of my entire army upon its wings, flew north and destroyed the target.

Depends on what you count as a dungeon. For example, Majora had 4 major dungeons, but also things like Ikana castle and the pirates' hideout.

Eusis

Yeah, I couldn't remember all of that but I could see those counting. Part of why I put the Minish Cap there too, there's not as much of that kinda stuff in it.

I dunno. It can be pretty cutting if you're meaning to be insulting, but it's also be a nice pert word for a nice pert things. I suppose it's all context and personal choice. Breasts isn't really a sexy word, I know that. This is a rather weird turn we've taken.

Sorry. I didn't mean to offend. I type as I think, or in this case point as I'm on my Wii.

Like George Carlin says, tits doesn't sound like a bad word. It sounds kinda like a nickname. To me, breasts sounds too medical and boobs sounds too goofy.

JCDenton

I agree with Tomm, the term is derogatory and gross, though the alternatives aren't great either. I think we just have to accept that there is no good word to designate that part of the anatomy.

It entirely depends on the context. IMHO, 'tits' is a bedroom word, and nothing that I'd ever expect to hear in public when discussing a woman (or speaking to one).
