It worked for Sony, so it might just work for Nintendo especially with two big name titles coming up, Metal Gear Solid: TS and Pokemon Colosseum.

Umm. . . yeah.  So now you're psychic.  Just for the record, I've never touched a Castlevania game.

Edit: Whoops, I've rented Castlevania 64 before and I LIKED IT!

I'd play a remake of Symphony of the Night over Too Human any day of the week.

I like blood and all in my games and anime shows, but there is something about The Suffering's bloodiness that turned me off, maybe there is just way too much.

Nintendo Gaming / RE:Who Else Bought A GameBoy Player?

I find that GBP is really worthless.  It can't do anything that the GBA SP (and almost the GBA) can't.  If it had a multiplayer feature, it would have sold me. . . and Four Swords.

I find it funny how this has suddenly become a food chat and that instant noodle packages are referred to as ramen.  Did you people get that from Naruto or something?  I don't consider INP to be ramen anyways.

Nintendo Gaming / RE:"I don't care how it looks...how does it play?"
« on: October 21, 2003, 04:11:36 PM »
I bought both Resident Evil and Metroid Prime to show off the GameCube's power, not the gameplay.  I didn't enjoy MP that much though it was technically amazing and Resident Evil, I bought because I always liked the series and ofcourse the graphics.

I'm definitely still gameplay over graphics with a couple of exceptions, here and there.

I prefer plain-old multiplayer with people I know, but yeah, I guess it does add to the replay value.

Tunneling online isn't that special you know.  Feels like playing against the computer since you can't chat or communicate with other players.

seeing as how gamecube was being outsold by the psone for a few weeks, this just brings gc back to par

Hopefully, it can't be as bad as N-Gage's design.  But even with a good design, developers will be just be bringing ports and the like to the system so it won't any be any much better than N-Gage is doing now.

Nintendo Gaming / RE:What is the best racing game out in the market?

Diddy Kong Racing, but judging by movies and screens, Mario Kart will take over

General Gaming / RE:Is FF7 over-rated?
« on: October 18, 2003, 03:56:01 PM »
Let me just say if I consider FFVII overrated(aka average) than 90% of RPGs would be crappy to me.

General Gaming / RE:Which FF games have you NOT played? (and why?)
« on: October 18, 2003, 03:46:48 PM »
I've played them all except for FFIII(SFC) because it has never been released in NA.  I love the new ones(PS/PS2) and appreciate the old ones(NES/SNES).

(I spelled grammar wrong on purpose. Sorry to get your hopes up, Gup)

Huh?

I remember the "early days of FF"(SNES & NES) and to be quite honest, they didn't get me hooked on RPGs the way I am now.  I'm sure if we were to set up a poll in an RPG website(such as RPGamer or something) asking which Final Fantasy era was/is better?, that the PS days will rule or I can just find you a couple.

Well Urkel, you have some "legitamite" complaints about FFVIII(sorry, not FFVII) and I can understand you since you gave some nice points(ofcourse not everyone agrees with it), but the others just say it "plain sucks" or it's "uninspired" which doesn't help in the argument.

Why thank you, I am Gup "Game Guru" afterall(see profile)

Also, I must mention that you are 100% right that Ocarina of Time didn't sell better because it was a better game.  It is perfectly obvious to me now that since it was sold when the userbase of the N64 was near its peak, it was ignored.

Did I ever say that? *looks through previous posts* No.

Your wisdom is truly an inspiration for us all.

Thank you again, your sarcasm is very much appreciated.  Anyways I'm going to sleep now, if there's anymore Final Fantasy bashing going on, leave a message and I'll return to fight the good fight

Hahaha!  I can already picture the kind of person you are...A stubborn mule who thinks this is a game...

Me, stubborn, whatever do you mean?  I make valid proof of the points I make and back it up.  Somebody says FF sales on Nintendo systems were better, I prove them wrong.  Someone says PS's FF is sells on violence and sex, I prove them wrong.  Any problems with that?  And again(with some modifications) Gup still 1, Grey and Bill still 0

Sales steadily increased until FF8, regardless of platform, then all of a sudden dropped.  I wonder why?

Again, PS' FF games sold better than FC.  And again, FFIX was released near PSOne's death(did you compare Ocarina of Time's sales to Majora's Mask which also released at the end of its' system's life).  And again, FFX is the top selling PS2 game and it was released on a new system with a lower user installed base.  And again Gup still 1, Grey still 0.

My bad!!!  I've played Valkyrie Profile and a Bust-a-Move.  I didn't get deep enough into VP, but I love all the BaM games.  Star Ocean 2 is something I always wanted to play since becoming an RPG gamer.

Sales have dropped substantially in Japan since FF7.  America didn't realize what an RPG was until Square advertised the hell out of FF7.

Here's some Jap sales for our viewing pleasures:
Final Fantasy VII - 3.26
Final Fantasy VIII - 3.60
Final Fantasy IX - 2.86
Final Fantasy X - 2.74
Final Fantasy X-2 - 2.00
Final Fantasy XI - somewhere over 0.3 million
source:Magicbox

Good point, you.  But, in defense of this, FFIX was visually different from the others which brought the game down and the fact that it was released at the end of PSOne's life.  FFX is currently the top selling PS2 game(until DQVIII) and FFX-2 is basically a side-story, but it's still second best selling PS2 game.  And FFXI, it was online and needed the harddrive.

Forgot about this:

FC Final Fantasy III - 1.40  
SFC Final Fantasy IV - 1.44
SFC Final Fantasy V - 2.45
SFC Final Fantasy VI - 2.55
Same source

Looks like the playstation FF still sell better than those on Nintendo's system   Gup=1 Grey=0.  I'll take on more challenges.

I've never played an Enix game, so I can't judge who's better.
