quote LukasI would put a "previously" or "before" at the end of this sentence. Otherwise I read it like we're fighting a boss that is somewhere else.You'll be revisiting some areas at times, but you'll find that things have changed; enemies have gotten stronger and the terrain is a bit different. You may even fight a boss that wasn't there!
quote Insanity Prevailshaha5.5? Man, that's a harsh score for Final Fantasy X. I figured you'd be the kind of guy who would be addicted to it forever until you get sick of it. Or maybe that's why.
quote Insanity PrevailsEspecially not cool when you consider the difficulty of the story bosses and how they were designed to compliment the linear map. I didn't mind the idea of the flexibility but yeah, everybody was too clearly defined for that shit.Can definitely agree on a lot of the individual points raised though. Grinding for the extras was not cool and the supposed flexibility of the expert sphere grid seemed a bit pointless.
quote Monterey Jackno.lol stop swearing so much.
quote Monterey Jackyeah it is just you, write your own reviewehhhhh I think it's more of a 6 than a 5.5/10 tho but that's just me.
quote Monterey JackCheers man, that's the main point I wanted to make (besides the sheer ineptitude of the storytelling). I just find it silly when people diss on linear designs without knowing that linear level designs have their purpose and that open worlds are crap if there's like nothing to do in them besides getting to Point B... except grind. I will eventually give Final Fantasies 7-9 their days eventually, but I got other games to get through.but I like your Final Fantasy X review quite a bit. it's rare to see someone praise the battle system for this game and especially the bosses. I, myself, only really liked the four bosses you brought up and found the rest of them generic, but what you said at least brings an interesting perspective to the floor on linear level designs and the boss battle designs
quote Monterey JackAdmittedly, I was focusing more on humor than reviewing, mainly because it was the best way for me to convey my thoughts on Assassin's Creed 3 (and Jak And Daxter to an extent). It was such a bad game that I needed something to balance out the out and out bitching I did and humor was the first thing to come to mind.also dug your Assassin's Creed 3 review but part of me thought you spent more time trying to be funny than actually reviewing it. mind you I thought it was funny but.. yeah, just something to consider even if you already did with your Final Fantasy X review. or something you already did with your Jak & Daxter review.
quote Monterey JackI don't know if I can do this but I'll try.I got a challenge for you
you're only allowed to use the F word three times in your next review
good luck mate
quote Lukasmaaaaaaaaate do your researchuh oh, it was actually ignorance. I fixed it up though.
quote Lukaslol not really. well, it's there in a way, but like you said in your edit, it focuses more on his inner self than that overarching plot.I actually thought it was a big thing throughout the game, not just the end.
quote LukasI got a challenge for youhaha I did swear a bit too much here. I edited out a few F words. I feel that what I left is necessary.
quote Monterey Jackuh oh, it was actually ignorance. I fixed it up though.quoteexcept Sleeping Dogs was being developed by United Front from the very beginning (back even before it was meant to be True Crime: Hong Kong), I assume it was before they developed Modnation Racers. Square Enix had purchased the right to publish it but not the rights to the license, so they had one of their studios pitch in with United Front to finally finish it off. I hope that you probably wrote that up as rule of entertainment rather than just plain ignorance.Then from what I could tell, United Front, the developers of that shitty racing game Modnation Racers, and Square Enix stepped in to tamper with this third True Crime game just enough to make it its own game so that they don't get in trouble.
quote Celes LeonhartI actually thought it was a big thing throughout the game, not just the end. But I changed it, hopefully it doesn't feel like I spoiled the ending.2) I think it's a bit lame you spoiled the end of the game in the second paragraph - if I hadn't played the game already I would be MAD pissed.
quote Celes Leonharthaha I did swear a bit too much here. I edited out a few F words. I feel that what I left is necessary.Also a big thing for me but you drop the F bomb like every second sentence. Nothing against using *bleep* - it works fantastically well in emphasising a point - but when it's there a dozen times a paragraph it really dilutes its potency.
