The Amazing Anthromorph - July 8 '01- 1:15 Eastern Standard Time|
So today I tried to do too many things at once, snapped at my roommate, didn't play any video games yet, and am still not done the media update I'm halfway through. Sigh. But now that I'm doing Q&A and me and Jay settled our differences, things are much better. After this, I'm gonna go play some more FFC.
Going once! Going twice!....SOLD!
Welcome back to Q&A! I was wondering what kind of game to get this
summer. At Software Etc. I found xenogears for $45 used. Used. They said
it was because it was an old, rare games that was still popular. I'm
wondering if it's worth it because I always hear that it had a good story... etc.
I also found Planetscape: Torment for $15. Is it really that good?
Those are excellent prices for both games, believe it or not. I'm a big buying used fan myself because they're always cheaper, and because I can generally rustle nifty package deals. Check out what Xenogears is going for on the web. To compare another used game, I saw a FFIII cart while in PEI in March, USED, no instructions or anything, and it was 80$. Refer back to yesterday's Economics lesson =^^=. Planetscape, though I haven't played it myself, gets a thumbs up from everyone I talk to. Hey, worse comes to worse you can sell it back to them for 5$.
I was going to write in with a RPG question, but I couldn't think of a good one. Course, if I was playing an RPG, rather then watching Gundam W: Endless Waltz, I suppose I could have come up with one.
Annnnnnnyway, are you going to get PSO v.2? I'm still up in the air over it. I love the game, but if I wanted to go online, I couldn't because I don't have a credit card. You can only level up your RAcast so much before you get bored (Also having your head handed to you by D. Falz on V-hard gets boring after a while too). Course, I still have yet to play with you online. ^.^
Well I'm out of things to say, so I'll go back to Endless Waltz.
- GuruClef -
For those who feel like knowing, Guru bought me PSO, though we were never able to play with each other.
Well, no, I'm not really planning on buying v2, unless you wanna send it to me ;P I also lack two major things, those being a credit card as well as a Dreamcast. Remember, I'm still borrowing from a friend =^^=.
I enjoyed the Q&A column, so thought I'd try my hand at a drawing. What
resulted was, though not intentionally, probably more of an insult than
a compliment. I guess this will be the drawing to prove that it is not
better to have untalented fans than none at all. Anyway, I thought I'd pass it
along since I'm proud of it, though most two-year-olds exhibit far more
The sad part is, this is better than anything I could ever aspire to draw.
GBA - GBC
<insert file="something about Paws's incredibly hot body">
Umm....hey. I just have a quick question, so hopefully you can help me out.
I'm not a big fan of hand-held systems, but now that the new Zelda games are
out and everyone seems to like them, I figure it's about time to go ahead
and join the bandwagon and get a new GameBoy. And since my birthday is
coming up, I think it would be a good idea to bug my parents for it instead
of spending some cash on it that I don't really have in the fist place.
But here's my problem: which do I ask for, GameBoy Color or Advance? I
don't know all that much about either, but my guess is that GBC would
probably be significantly less expensive than the GBA. HOWEVER, the GBA can
play games from both the GBC and GBA. So you'd think I would just go ahead
and get the GBA, right? But no, because THEN I heard that when you play GBC
games on the GBA, it looks incredibly bad. Or something like that.
So, you'd think that since I'm primarily after the new Zelda games, I'd just
go for the GBC, right? But NO, I can't do that either! What if some great
new FANTASMIC RPGs come out for the GBA? I think that the new Lufia might
be for the GBA, but I could be smoking crack on that one. I can't play
those on the GBC!
See?! Isn't this hard? You'd think, "Psssh, he graduated from high school,
he'll figure it out." But no, cuz I'm stoopid like that. So, keeping in
mind that I REALLY don't want to get both if I don't have to, what should I
--heart of ice
Well, I'd say go for the GBA myself. There not that much more expensive (30$), and the GBA can play every GB/GBC game.
Yes, yes, I know, there's all sorts of rumors flying around certain games won't work. However, every game that's been mailed to us with issues at least one staffer has tried and has had no problems with. Remember that packs that will questionably work with the GBA are 5+ years old, so they're on their deathbeds anyways.
Ender's Daily Question
Hiya Paws, hope you're doing well today.
Well, after playing more of Diablo II I have mixed news to deliver. There are
the occasional idiots who pick on the weak to get their jolies. I had all my
weapons stolen, but an even stronger character stole them and gave them back
to me. He wouldn't even accept a reward, to my annoyance.
I have a few questions now. As I was goofing around in a dungeon I found a
rune. Not a rune sword or anything like that, but a rune that you equip into
a socketed weapon or armor. I instantly became the target of all players
wanting to trade items I wouldn't be able to use until like 3 months from now
(level 70 required or 233 strength required). I've been told rumors that
these runes can creat fantastic weapons and armor, know anything about em?
OK, I'm playing the ORIGINAL zelda for the heck of it and I'm lost again. For
some reason I've run out of keys in level 9. Where's the skeleton key at.
It's becoming increasingly obvious that I'm going to need it.
Finally, I'm thinking about doing a few reviews for Points of View. So here's
like three questions. One, should I review the two new GBC Zelda games as one
or two games? Two, do I submit them to you or something else? Are there
anythings which give a review a higher quality other than spelling and basic
Well, thank you for your time. See ya around,
Hiya Ender. Okay, let's do this in order
1. A Rune is akin to a Gem, except when they are in certain combinations, they become uber powerful. You can also use Runes in the Horadic cube to make crafted items. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful than this.
2. I found a handy dandy FAQ on the site which explains the correct directions to travel. It's right here, and this should help.
3.a) Two games. I actually just covered that in my booboos.
3.b) You submit them to The Reviews Email.
3.c) Clear arguments, paragraph hooks, and a sense of humor works wonders in reviews. Just think about how you would explain the game to a friend who's never played it before.
One T-rex in the dino forest is worth a total of 8800 exp.So if you have a
party of 4 then it's 2200 exp each person.One person with the exp. egg gets
17600 for one dino and 35200 for 2 dinos.Fights with 2 dinos happen about a
forth as much.
I love you Paws. :)
I just checked it, and killing two tyranosaurs in FFVI only makes
with Exp.Egg. The best thing to level up really fast is this: equip a
character with a flame shield and have the spell Merton. Then fight near
Doma Castle. Cast Merton: it kills your opponents and gives 22000xps.
I've found nothing else in the game with such an amount of xps.
Hey (monks sing) PAWS
I was testing the max. exp one can get in one battle in FFVI. It is
indeed 35,200 with one person battling 2 tyranosaurs with an exp. egg. Having 2
exp. eggs have no added effect.
Also, is it wrong not to go to your own
brother's wedding? Even though he doesn't consider me his brother and haven't
talked in three years even though living in the same house. Sound's like some odd
Speaking of that, what RPG cliche would you best want in the real
world? I also can only play my PSX games if the machine is vertical. I
also have to put tape in it to prevent the black piece from moving around
causing a lens misfire.
Scariest part of my sisters being teenyboppers is that
one of them is 25. I remember her 10 years ago with New Kids on the Block stuff
on all the walls in her room. This would explain my odd behavior. I present
to you a ball of yarn and a mouse toy.
There you have it for EXP building tips in FFVI. Now for Mog's comments.
It sounds like there's no obligation for you to go. If you guys are fighting or not speaking to each other over a huge fight, his wedding might be a good idea to avoid. After all, you don't want to get into an ugly argument or something.
I pity you. I remember NKOTB (I was around 11), and...well, at 25, I think your sister should maybe find a new hobby than mooing over 5 guys poseuring and singing O.O; It's one thing to like N'sync or BSB. It's another to teenybop.
Oh, hmm, the best RP cliché in life...I dunno. Probably that love/faith can solve everything >:P
How Embarassing =*^^*=
Actually I feel pretty stupid about this one. Anywho I'm playing FFIV(my god the Chronicles translation owns, better then the fan ROM translation.) and I
*sheepish grin* can't seem to get past the part where Rydia comes back.
Either the Calbrinas own me or Golbez owns me. My question is am I just
a *censored* or are my levels too low or what? (All my chars are around
Well, I'm betting it is your levels. Currently I'm in the tower of Zot right before I beat the sisters and I'm at level 30. Oh, and to those that are curious, the script is excellent, the people are very realistic, and yes, it IS harder. For example, Bluster is now a death attack, and the Magnetic Cave will kill you if you're wearing metal armor instead of just paralyze.
Salutations queen of the kitties,
I am one of the lucky ones that don't have to worry about a FFT re-release luckily, as I got the game when it came out. If the re-release becomes
official though, my and everyone else's copy of the game will lose about a million percent of their value! =P I got some questions too, read read!
They are quite varied as well!
1.) What are your thoughts on Game Boy Advance, and the upcoming Lufia game?
2.) Am I the only person that refuses to buy Final Fantasy Chronicles? I already have both games on cartridge, and if I want the good hard-type
translation, I'll turn to a FFIV ROM translation pack.
3.) Will Final Fantasy X ever see a PC release? I only plan on getting a Game Cube, so a PC release would be just peachy. (snip snip)
Kamikaze "The divine wind has spoken"
1. I want it, and I'm not sure. I haven't been able to play the other Lufia games, so I'm more excited about stuff like the BoF re-releases and Golden Sun. Also Mario Advance.
2. I could point out the silly illegal part of the whole ROM bit, but if you read PsoV, you've heard me gripe enough. Considering the cheap price tag on the set and the fact that your cart batteries will die eventually, it would be to your advantage to pick it up now.
3. I haven't heard anything to that effect. Right now I'm not holding my breath for either FFIX or FFX for PC. (Now let's just hope I don't pull an FFC-Google!)
Wakko, Day 2
Dear Cat'o'nine tails,
I was wondering when FFT first came out it was only an american release when it came out right? (or just a north american from what
I hear) If so how would it be rereleased, if it was? Would it be a worldwide or just a NA agian? That's another thing, when it says
american release does that automaticlly mean a canadien one as well?
Considering how horrid the translation was...I think that answers the question. If it was released as a Greatest Hit, nothing would be changed. However, if it came out as a re-release, they would probably update the script and maybe throw in an FMV at the intro/end. Althought there is already some kickaft intros.
Yes, when a game is released, it is released to 'North America'. That means Canada gets it too, though we often get it a few days later because companies have to go through customs.
