No, it sucks Manbearpig's big nuts, I should not have to wait or stick it out for a game to get good so many chapters in. That is fucking stupid, stupid game design. But Slayer your the better man when it comes to that tedious shit, and I applaud you.

Fuck them in their ear.

I just don't have patience for shit like that anymore. if the game takes 10+ hours to get "good", the developers have failed. the best games are the ones that are immediately approachable and continue to add depth as it goes along to keep you interested.

I threw the towel in on Resonance of Fate after an hour of tutorials. fuck it, I have better things to do with my time.

Do you still play Shadowrun?

I was thinking of getting it tomorrow.

I just picked up Shadowrun for $4.50, used at gamestop. I still suck balls. the learning curve is high, as the people who still play are very knowledgeable. but the game is unique and worth the price of admission.

I made no illusions as to how I felt about the game but was compeled to keep playing regardless. It isnt a good sign when you have to wait a long fucking time for the good stuff to start happening. It has moments of brilliance but they are few and far between. Overall, it was very mediocre and will easily be forgotten. Im just keeping my fingers crossed that the next true FF game (which will be XV so who the fuck knows when that will come out) can go back to a game that long time fans (pre VII) can really enjoy. I think even Sqaure knows they underachieved with this release.

I just don't understand why they went in a completely different direction after the universally praised FFXII. It makes no sense. That game was a revolution for JRPG's, that managed to combine combat mechanics from MMORPG's, with an amazing amount of freedom, and still kept it's JRPG roots.

This version feels like the developers were drinking their own kool-aid, and thought the story was too good, to interupt with long stretches of gameplay. Which it isn't. The only FF game, where I really looked forward to the next cutscene, was FFVII. Even then, they didn't overkill it like this game did.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune - Decided to give this a go, now that it's cheap as hell. Pretty damn good game. The story is great, filled with memorable characters, and you can definately see the groundwork for the greatness that was part 2. My main complaints are in the repetitiveness of it all. Nearly every environment looks the same. The jungle looks amazing, but gets a bit tiresome after a couple of hours. Once you start exploring the tombs and whatnot, the environments get more interesting, but nothing you haven't seen in something like Tomb Raider.

The enemies were just weak. You've got about three main enemy types, who all look the same, throughout the entire game. Later on, they throw some heavily armoured mercenaries your way, mixed with, ugh, zombies, or sorry, cursed explorers. The combat gets annoying after a while, just 'cause there is no real variety in the enemy types. I don't care what anyone says, the gunplay is flawed. I've seen bullets go clean through an enemy's head, only for the game not to register a head shot. The enemies are also way too powerful, even on easy. It becomes a head shot fest, just because the enemies can take a ridiculous amount of bullets, if you hit them anywhere else.

The end boss battle is one of the weakest I've ever played. It's basically a quick time event, with failure meaning death. I would have been much more satisfied, with an escape on some kind of vehicle, like the brilliant jeep chase early on in the game.

Overall, it's a good game, with some shortcomings. Safe to say Naughty Dog, corrected pretty much everything in the sequel. Oh, except for the fucking gunplay!

This annoys me, not against you slayer, but this whole elitist empowerment that people who grew up playing FF before the 7 juggernaut hit have. I remember playing number fucking 1 WAY back before I actually understood it, does that give me the entitlement that I can bitch about? I have never understood why people who think just cause they were around before 7 dropped, and played and hang on the nuts of 6 have this ego? That anything released that is not in some way shape or form Kefka or something of that game it will fail.

What you said, is just a general understanding that I have come across through different message boards. I thought with new FF it would drive the medium forward. It is like this old FF fans, are like Old batman fans, that the movies would be better if it was directed by Burton and this new shit with Nolan sucks. I personally think we should leave 6 and all the rest of that shit in the past. Maybe the fans of pre-7 are pissed cause 7 redesigned the entire RPG genre forever, and their precious little clown was fucking left behind.

Though, I would love for them to branch out to more sci-fi/something else then this very clean, very glossy very futuristic vibe that has been around since 10.

I will agree with Heretic that 12 has had its fair share of fucked up comments. Everyone seems to hate the way things are eventually going. That we as gamers want better graphics, better gameplay, better AI, but not better AI for our comrades. Why not? I loved not having to worry about curing Fang or even Fran from 12. If the enemy and Boss AI could whoop some ass by themselves, why not my fellow party members. Yeah, give you the option to control everything by yourself, or let the AI take over with preset commands, like 12 and to an extent 13 has done.

Yeah, end rant.

It's just another form of fanboyism. Personally, I think the real champion of the series is FFVII. The main thing I hear, when people are bitching about VII being the downfall of the franchise, is because they made it easy, or more precisely, accessible. You didn't have to be some RPG nut, to enjoy it. It delivered on every front. The "job/class" system was gone, but so was the frustration of choosing a wrong combination of jobs, in combat. Like I said, it was very accessible, and didn't punish the fuck out of you, like most RPG's of that era.

Some people try to tell me that Wild Arms was the best RPG of that era, and I laugh in their stupid fucking faces every time.
