Games you are looking forward to

I don't think anyone here has anything against SE or any other Nippon company, we just don't like anything that even resembles anime or the likes :)

 

I used to. Now I can't stand 'em

It's called growing up :lol:

 

Edit: You did mean the anime part, not the companies?

 

Anime, yes. Poke their eyes out I say!

Look, that's exactly it. Did Medieval 2 have blue hedgehogs hopping around once SEGA took over? It's just your prejudice showing, that's all. Having Squenix as a publisher/co-developer doesn't magically introduce or increase animeish content in a game. Game design isn't a cover-up for foreign ethnicity. That's just the bigoted part of you.

I'm not a bigot you filthy anime lover!

Hear hear! I get the pointy sticks, you get the spoons!

You guys could try to tone down the bigotry towards a Japanise company a bit, it's smelling a bit colonial here...

 

Hardly, enjoyed to many Japanise games made by other developers.

I have a dislike for a certain art style, that certain Japanese game developers sometimes use. Do you see me hate on MGS, SF, Mario, Shemnue, RE etc? No. It's like saying to someone that because they don't like rap they are bigot.

WTF?!

 

1) Who died and made you moderator?

 

2) Square Enix has been getting a silk-gloved treatment for this forum. If anything, Canadians would have a right to complain about their treatment... And Eastern Seaboard Americans. ;(

You're a cheery wee bugger, Nep. Have I ever said that?

Haha, overreact much ? Kudos on the use of 'colonial' though.

New moderators are made only when one of the current mods die and point out the new moderator beyond the grave?

 

This forum means business :p

Here's a better comparison: If a game company from, say, Harlem got it's fingers into a game studio you liked and then you'd have the audacity to write something akin to "now they are going to have rap music in my favorite rpg!", then yes, I'd call you a bigot.

 

As for Squenix getting the silk-gloves treatment(silkkihansikkain, hah) here, I think they should, unlike the borderline bigotry that we nowadays let pass so easily. If it was Nintendo taking over or Capcom hopping on board, the complaints would be about ubiquitous checkpoints, or actiony moves in a survival horror game or needless cuteness amidst gritty western shooters or somesuch. Look guys; how many times have you read statements such as these: "it's from eastern Europe, it must be buggy as heck", "you know Germans and their crappy Fallout-clones" or "Canadian game studio? Hope they hire British/American voice actors!" on gaming message boards? Because I've found that there's a limit to how desentizised one can become when it comes prejudice and am just a bit afraid for my fave gaming board to let it pass.

 

And save the snarky comments, ok guise? This is anything but personal, getting angry about it never helps.

I was raised by polar bears. I had to fight against blood thirsty wolves and rabid penguins to get my food. Those who were too weak to survive were sent to Sweden.

I don't have anything against Square-Enix, I just dislike JRPGs and the general stagnation of the Japanese gaming market.

 

Is that ok?

Hey, I hate the (although relative) stagnation too, so many companies seem to think that there's no market in the west for innovative new games and so we either get jrpgs in a very conservative vein or games that generally pass under radar, leading to vicious cycle of a lost market opportunity. Thank heavens we at least have Atlus, Inc to keep the western market for Asian games relatively fresh.

 

Well, at least handheld gaming doesn't have this problem. But I wouldn't touch handhelds with a ten-foot pole. :p

the problem with jrpg's isn't stagnation, its that they simply stopped making good games in that genre, if final fantasy 7 were released for the first time today with better graphics, it would still be a good game.

 

cool villain? check

 

varied and interesting places to go? check

 

wide open world to explore? check (world is limited in some ways, but the feeling you get flying around in your airship for the first time? priceless! 1000x better than the ****ty exploration you get in X or XII)

 

interesting battle system? check (materia system is mega awesome)

 

neato summons that arent overly long and ridiculous? check

 

cool but not overdone and stupidly bombastic cg cutscenes? check (compare the cg scenes in 7 to the retarded **** that goes on in advent children)

 

its a great game, they just lost sight of what made it (and parts 6, 8, and 9) great after sakaguchi left the company. Its a a lot like what happens comparing baldurs gate 2 to neverwinter nights OC....

 

seems like nobody notices the similarities between what happened with eastern rpgs and western rpgs. both got way worse. only recently have western rpgs started coming out of their slump, maybe FF 14 will be a return to form...

In 7th grade, I teach the students how Chuck Norris took down the Roman Empire, so it is good that you are starting early on this curriculum.

I agree, it's certainly a genre that's flagging. Still, Tales of Vesperia is a ripping yarn. Have a read of this article I wrote.

 

...okay, so I didn't write the damn article, but I may as well of done. And lets not forget Lost Odyssey and Eternal Sonata. There are still some fine examples of the genre out there.

Lost Odyssey had 5 hours of awesomeness and the rest was mostly awful JRPG clich

Demand to see life's manager. Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons. Do you know who I am? I'm the man who's gonna burn your house down! With the lemons. I'm going to to get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!"
