Tell me more about it?

I'm replaying some PS1 games, and I've put in 20 hours into BOF IV before, maybe about 5-6 years ago. When it first came out, anyways. I don't remember much of it.. is it good? Well, good enough to warrant a play? Recommendations?

I've played BOF V: Dragon Quarter, by the way. Thought it was a brilliant little gem.. but that's just me ; )

Diablo II If you don't already know what this game's about than I really can't help you... Playing a necro on US West Level 59 as of last play...

I'm also playing: Guitar Hero (and I suck major hardcore, but I keep on practicing), GTA: San Andreas for like the 4th time..., and a little Soul Calibur 3. All of these on the PS2 of course...

Oh really now.
Playing a little psone game called Hoshigami. Strategy RPG, I'm having great fun with it. The battle system, as far as I've gotten, seems to have such amazing possibilities, and the enemies are relentless, which is a great plus for me. Been looking for a challenge after playing Indigo Prophecy and Suikoden V (again).

I've just finished Final Fantasy Tactics. Stayed up all night to finish it in one go. All I have to say.. is that the plot was very ambitious, and I managed to keep track of the most important threads, especially character relationships. And it was bloody brilliant. There's a distinct Shakespearan influence on the penning of the drama, and the game is gripping until the very end. I'm very impressed.

I probably wouldn't have understood it as well if I played it nearly 10 years ago (~1997) when it was released.

Ah. What a game.

Hmmmmn.... lets see.

-I like the combo system a lot (combining spells + skills + other combos to create more powerful attacks is always nice ) it just a shame that combinations sometimes fail.

-The story is pretty avarage as far as japanese RPG's are concerned. It would have been nice if you could play as Fou-lu a bit more. The ending is pretty bad and lame, IMHO.

-I hate the dragon system a lot. The one from BoF III was so much better; You only get one dragon form that gets different abilities depending on what "beast" you 'may' want to summon.

And I say "beast" because the game's definition of dragon is a little off. Worms, Whales, Knights, etc. If it's big, the characters refer to them as dragons. The summons animations are also among the worst I have ever since.

-The fishing mini-game is nowhere near as good as the one in 3. You can no longer see all the fish in the water and the ones you get to see all have the same shape(extremely based on luck this time around); Still fun to play though.

-I like the characters designs a lot, but I have heard many complains from other people in this regard. I am pretty sure you still remember them. By the way, Ursula reminds me of Chun-lee (Street Fighter)

At the end of the day, I'll say that BoF IV is an OK game that helps you kill time while you wait for the good ones to arrive.

Shame Ryu only has one dragon form though.

Currently playing Dead Rising for the X-box360 to get as many achievements as I can. It's more fun than I originally thought it would be.

My list of games that I need to get back to sometime are Sakura Taisen V,Final Fantasy X-2(I only beat it once and It was the normal ending.),and Skies of Arcadia:Legends.

I have a ton of games I still need to finish some time, and I even have a stack of games
still in original shrinkwrap.

What I'm playing currently however are:

DS) Final Fantasy I & II (currently about 7 hours in FF1)
I usually don't like high-random encounters and little story, but somehow FF1 keeps me playing.

PS2) Xenosaga (restarted from scratch again - got stuck near the end before)
One other game I recently finished for PS2 was Phantom Brave

PC) Galactic Civilizations 2 (though it's getting a little boring now)

In anticipation of Xenosaga III, I went back and played though I and II again. Playing Xenogears for the fifth time because it... its Xenogears. Also practicing my drifting in GT4 to no avail.

Gah. And I was hoping it was going to be a good game! I guess I won't be playing it anytime soon then.. I don't want to waste my limited time. I'll now have to choose between Kartia, Front Mission 3, Vagrant Story and Saga Frontier 2 for my next game on my retro adventure.. : B

It's a shame that BOF V didn't get more acclaim and sales, although perhaps its understanding when you see that it's a rather simple and bareboned game. It has a certain amount of polish, but it's quite obvious that it didn't have too big of a production budget. Still, the aim of the game is quite simple, although it seems that you have to play it twice to really get the full picture of things. And when you do, it's quite fascinating! It's also a rather challenging game. Loved it though.

Well, now I feel like playing some oldies again. (Especially the Lunar series ^^)

ANYWAYS!

I'm playing Steambot Chronicles, which is pretty good though nothing fantastic, Growlanser 3 (Just finished 2), which is far better then 2 IMO (Although I usually don't like random battles that much), and Monster Hunter (For PS2).

Games waiting for me to play....Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, Drakengard 2, Radiata Stories, Atelier Iris 1&2, Digital Devil Saga 1&2 (As soon as I get them anyways), and Xenosaga 2.

Holy shit.

http://www.ffxii.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=7015

Yasumi Matsuno (Final Fantasy Tactics, Vagrant Story & FF XII) has left Square-Enix! His supposed illness seems to be a cover-up for his actual leaving the company. What a shame, the man is a genius. I'll follow his works wherever he's going; that's for sure. The minus is that at Squeenix, he had a massive budget and production crew upon which to build a highly polished game.. I'm not sure that he'll have that sort of freedom and resources at another company. But I have faith in YAZZ. Looking forward to his next work for sure.

From that thread, rumours are that he's joined Mistwalker. Fuck no.. it's a company that is, so far, only developing games for the X360, which I will most probably not get. I hope the news clears up soon..

Leaving WoW after realizing that you can only ever "lose" at it, I got hooked on EVE, and I'm having a blast, since I can actually make a considerable difference to the experience's of others, for better and worse.

Cheers.

Ah, Eve. That reminds me, I still have an old account on it, if anyone wants it just ask me, I'll never play it again.
