  1. I like to finish my games, so I seldom have more then two on the go at once....even then if a game is good enough (and for that I mean deserving of my time) I generally want to play it through to completion to the exclusion of anything else. All this doesn't stop me form buying games mind....hence the large number of boxes still in their cellophane wrap in my games cupboard
  2. Yeah but there's only so much room under the telly right? Backwards compatability means you can sell to upgrade and stops your living room turning into a retro Dixons showroom
  3. Xenogears unfinished? Okay maybe so....but disk one was so good it can be forgiven. Personally I'm hoping Monolith remake it as part of the Xenosaga series (as it is supposedly part 5). But fumbled the ball in the Psone era? FF Tactics, FFVII, Brave Fencer, Front Mission 3 all beg to differ I'll think you'll find. However even I'm not goin to defend the Chocobo stuff
  4. I bought it cheap second hand No guide
  5. He did call the thread 'Why I hate Squaresoft' which is close enough surely?
  6. I remember ringing a few times over Super Metroid. God I was rubbish at that game....hmmmm, nope no idea what to do now....again
  7. I see... so logically following your argument you think The Hobbit is a far superior book to The Lord of the Rings... Whats the matter? Xenogear got too many big words in it for you? Maybe you should go an play Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest....oh wait no you couldn't do that because its a Square game... *sigh* Anyway all this is ignoring the obvious...Square are a publisher not a developer....the games mentioned in this thread are all very different to each other...FF, the chrono and Xenogears(saga) series all have very different takes on the RPG and are all by completely different design teams. Saying you hate all Sqauresofts output is about as logical as saying everything EA produces is rubbish..... erm hang on
  8. Pah I shall believe that when vg+ tells me its shipped. Earlier this week it was supposed to be out on Tuesday.... Personally I being to think it will never materialise...
  9. Okay this is true....each FF game has always been an evolution rather then a revolution, but strip back the story and the set pieces which makes the later games so great and there's not much there gamewise...hence my disdain for FFI. Anyway I'm done with this one too...I'm quite happy to let you keep FFI! Xenosaga is an interactive movie....its a very good one...indeed there's nothing wrong with the idea of an interactive movie imho if the game bits are done right...Xenosaga does take the piss a little in the length of some of the cut scene (the lead up to the song of nephillem dungeon is over half an hour for gods sake) but it gets away with it because the story is fasinating...
  10. Erm hang on...were we playing the same game here? The plot of FF: there's these 4 hero (who just happened to be wandering around convieniently together)....and they are required to go on a quest to find some crystals. They get them...the end. Its a (not so) mini adventure Okay there's a slight little twist at the end....but really thats about it. FFX has its flaws but it manages a little more detail and epic scope then that... Depends what you want out of a game...but for all its freedom (well having a world map at least) all you can do FF outside the main 'plot' is wander around and kill monsters. Personally I play RPGs mainly for the story....without this key element they rather fall apart as the 'gameplay' is ultimatly fairly repetitive in even the best examples. I'm not FFX's greatest fan.... (I'm with the FFVI brigade) but its enjoyable and spectacular....and the battle system is 100s of times better then the rudimentary stuff in FFI...as you'd expect really 14 years on (not to mention real puzzles...mini games and other assorted window dressing). Of course the best RPG of recent times is Xenosaga...but then that really is an interactive anime series...
  11. I've also played through all of the Psone remake series (for my sins) and quite how you can describe the incredibly basic, plot free snorefest which is FF1 as better then X worries me. (played and finished all the FF series except III, which looks unlikely to change until I a better (any) grasp of japanese) Very simple battle system, no plot, basic dungeons, masses of simplistic random battles and huge amounts of levelling up to progress.... Sorry I'm a massive FF fan but I wouldn't make anyone play though the first couple of games unless they really wanted to see how the games had progressed...
  12. What by making him lose the will to live by playing FF I + II?
  13. As the NES games on the GC/PS2 collection were only tidied up (no sprite clashes/ flashing characters) it seems likely the Gb games will be indeed in glorious b&w. No conclusive answer for you tho'....but I'll be surprised if you can do anything other then mess around with the backdrop colours...
  14. They are five of the GB games - different the the NES/SNES games. The first one Dr Wileys revenge is a classic!
  15. Mmmmm? So there was a better Mario style platformer on the C64? Ignoring Giana Sisters....that was just plagurism and Mayhem's controls were far more fluid and responsive
  16. Currently I'm working my way through the stunning Xenosaga episode one as I have been for much of the week. It has quite simply the best plot I have ever encountered in an RPG - I'm mesmerised. Punctuating that with some mindless action from Van Helsing which is great fun. I also had a blast on the Psi - Ops demo and was extremely impressed - enough to get me straight over the vg+ and order it...
  17. Mayhem wasn't published by Thalalmus, it was a mail order only job from the Apex Twins themselves (who coded it and the Creatures games). It had a dreadful multi load too! Anyway I was never a massive fan of the Creatures games...but Mayhem was pure platform perfection - the closest the C64 ever got to Mario
  18. Actually I quite enjoyed the demo... The game still looks lush and I am still looking forward to it immensely. This doesn't change the fact that Galleon was dire however!
  19. Hmmm you know it was all going so well until the god awful pun at the end
  20. Hmmm but that only makes up for the fact the early Dizzy games (Dizzy - Treasure Island, Fantasy World, Magicland etc) were pure Speccy port with the awful graphics that went along with them. Mind you I hated the Dizzy games...although Bubble Dizzy was a fun platformer type thing... Codemasters best platformer was CJ's Amazing Adventues on the C64 - not that was class!
  21. They have....its called the Super Mario Advance series
  22. Woooo Just had to say that as you may be the only other person I have ever come in to conatct with who has/likes 'Life is Sweet' by Maria Mckee. Must go add it to my ipod
  23. It was originally scheduled for beginning of May...then end....then june... *sigh* Now its out on the same day as Tales of Symphonia. Damn. Anyway whats with these supposedly finished and ready to go translated games slipping eh? How long ago was the japanese release eh? *humph* Anyway I'm excited about the goodies as well....growlanser watch and everything!
  24. It was DMC2 wasn't it? Dante in jeans was a hidden costume
  25. Hmmmm yes but the single version of vegas was sooooooooo much better than the tinny mix on 'Smart' Anyway I always liked Sleeper....the last album 'Please to Meet You' was a mini - masterpiece imho. and 'shrinkwrapped' is still gorgoeus even now... Plently of crimes against taste in my music collection too although I suppose my biggest embaressment at the moment is my unabashed love for Avril Lavigne's new album. No it is really good...honest
