@  Mage Girl : (17 February 2020 - 02:33 AM) I can safely say I'm so far the only person to post to this shoutbox in 2020...
@  Fire Blazer : (24 December 2019 - 03:17 AM) naw, it's when the bots make collaborated efforts to crawl places, lol
@  kirant : (23 December 2019 - 05:20 AM) What do we do on Index Day? Give each other bots?
@  Fire Blazer : (16 December 2019 - 01:39 AM) LOL
@  xcrash1998 : (30 November 2019 - 11:07 PM) New fictional holiday "Index Day"
@  Fire Blazer : (28 November 2019 - 08:52 PM) yeah just guest bots and stuff I think :( we really were active once upon a time though...
@  kirant : (26 November 2019 - 03:48 PM) No invasion. I imagine a lot of guest bots visiting for indexing purposes.
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:15 PM) How is most people online at 959 for the 8th of October of this year? Is that right? Did I miss something or was there somekind of spambot invasion?
@  xcrash1998 : (26 November 2019 - 02:06 PM) I know what you mean, it gets awkard to post something unrelated to the current conversation, and even if somebody picks up on it, it would just become a huge mess in the c hatbox if a multitude of groups talk about different topics.
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:45 PM) especially better imo if you want to update on a topic but like only occasionally (e.g. a project you're working on or a let's play of a game)
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) it's hard for me to explain precisely why but forums just like work better for meaningful discussion over a longer period of time ig
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) but that's def just not hte same ig, idk
@  Fire Blazer : (10 November 2019 - 11:44 PM) yeah, you can also kind of respond at your own pace on forums. Discord conversations are often like... it's awkward to respond to something that happened a while ago, especially if the server is active, but even just in general. since you sort of need to keep track of multiple conversations at once at times, and it's not like it has a good reply/quote system ala forums, closest thing really is to copy/paste or screenshot the text you're responding to and then type a response below
@  Elwood : (09 November 2019 - 11:29 AM) Adding on to what's been said, I just enjoy the order and structure of the forums. You can look through the threads and know exactly what people are talking about. Conversation get lost and buried on discord which is why I'm not a big fan of it.
@  kirant : (06 November 2019 - 05:31 AM) I enjoy that part of forums too. They become niche communities where you can have very specialized conversations as opposed to the cluttered mess in Discord.
@  Ezra : (31 October 2019 - 01:17 AM) Yeah, part of me wishes I could go back to the times forums were more prevalent. I really enjoyed how even several different forums based off the same franchise could feel so different. It's not like what we now is bad though, I just feel nostalgic for old times.
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:39 AM) also forums in general are just not as prevalent, there are so many other ways to interact these days, like Twitter, FB, Tumblr, etc., where you can just throw your thoughts into the void. I think that's the real issue and that the only people rly interested in forums these days are either super dedicated to whatever they're about, have a specific reason/need to (e.g. support forums), or grew up with them and are thus attached to the idea enough to continue to try and use them (this was kinda me for a while lol but things happen, I couldn't keep it up forever)
@  Fire Blazer : (30 October 2019 - 06:36 AM) I've posted on SF for various reasons ofc but in terms of like making friends and stuff it's p. much just been smaller groups/forums, yeah. mainly FES
@  Elwood : (27 October 2019 - 10:08 PM) Only reason I'm even on Serenes was because I had hacking questions. @Ezra yeah I figured it must be an age thing. I've been called an old man by many a child because I use Facebook.
@  kirant : (26 October 2019 - 09:39 PM) It's strange. I don't think I've ever posted on Serenes...period. I've always been a fan of smaller forums.

I find it funny that just because my tastes are different than yours, you refute my opinion completely? An opinion is incapable of being worthless.

I find it funny how you stated that VIII and on would fail, obviously you omitted VII, which pretty much suggests the same in that you're opinion is invalid. It isn't though, but it's still pretty idiotic to refute someone's opinion when they say they like VIII and X when you don't in any way refer VII to be as bad, because in all truthfulness, VIII and X pretty much crap all over VII.

Plus, Final Fantasy didn't define the genre, maybe you're thinking of Dragon Quest. Lol.
Lol, "damn kids", just how old are you?

Ah, I see, you're one of those stupid people who actually put value to the things Kotaku puts in their articles. Just so you know, the group over at that site are a bunch of mind-numbing retards, just like the people who believe the crappy rumors they say.

QUOTE
On July 24, 2012, Yoichi Wada confirmed that the rumor was false and that the game is still in development.


Nice try though, though you failed at "kicking me in the groin". Imbecile.


It's not because our tastes are different, but because you have shown such a lapse in judgement as to like those games. Opinions are definitely capable of being worthless. In this case you are believing the world is square, when it is circle, of course you will be laughed at in the scientific community.

Final Fantasy 7 was a great game, good characters, good plot, good story telling. Not as good as Final Fantasy 6, but regardless a good game. Way better than the emo crap Final Fantasy 8 and 10 were. Perhaps you are an emo, and that is why you like them, but your arrogance leads me to believe otherwise.

No. Final Fantasy really did define the genre. Dragon Quest/Warrior defined the western RPG. Close though. I'll give you a point for that. Edit for clarification: While Dragon Quest is japanese, the open world with no stated direction (just implied) is what gave birth to the western RPG's of today. Edit number 2: I know this completely ignores the influences of the Romancing SaGa series and the Phantasy Star series, but I figured I wouldn't go so far off topic.

I love how you ignorantly assume I read Kotaku. It's the internet. News travels. And congratulations. Maybe Square will finally make another good Final Fantasy, only took them 14 years.

Not my fault they're easy to miss. It's delightful how stupid you are.

And Ryoku. Hah. Blunt? Yes. Troll? Sometimes. Blunt troll? Not at all. When I troll no one can tell.

And people really need to stop assuming things are opinions. It is a simple fact that when viewed objectively, Final Fantasy 1 to 7 (not including USA/Mystic Quest) were good games, while Final Fantasy 8 to 10-2 were not. The main problem would probably be how the first ones were about the story and the characters, while 8 and 9 were centralized around the love story (8 Squall being used, 9 Zidane and Garnet), and 10/10-2 also centralized around the love story. And while there is nothing wrong with love stories they should not be the most important aspect, especially when it subtracts from the overall game.

I'm just saying that it'd be best to back off a bit.
1. This is supposed to be to tell what games you're playing, not why the games that other people like are terrible.
2. There's been a lot of drama here lately (partially because of me) and it's hurting the community as a whole.
3. If I think that a game, i.e. Halo, is stupid, I don't go around and try to tell people that they are stupid for liking it. It's pointless, and frankly makes YOU look like the stupid one, no offense.

Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy don't really mesh together too much in my opinion, so if you like Kingdom Hearts then I'm going to just say that you might not like Final Fantasy, because the two are so different it's not even funny, cause it's not funny. >_____________>

The closest thing that comes to the battle system would be the upcoming Versus game, but I wouldn't recommend that either because the story of that seems to be incredibly darker in contrast to Kingdom Hearts. Although, if you don't mind that, feel free, just going by what I see here.

I haven't played Skyward Sword yet, mind telling me if it's worth it as a stand alone title, yet not as a game in the Zelda series?

It's basically another Wind Waker, in the sense of story, anyway. The music is beautiful, if I must say so myself.. your guide isn't annoying as annoying as Navi, so that's good tongue.gif. And (lol, you can't start a sentence with and, silly.) anyone who says the controls are "buggy" or "don't register" are bullshitting, because the controls are very smooth and easy to understand. When I say the story is like another Wind Waker, I mean that it kind of drives away from what we're used to seeing in Zelda. Anyway, the jist of this many rant is that Skyward Sword is an enjoyable game inferior to Ocarina of Time, but better than Wind Waker. xD

Eh I wouldn't say that. It was nice to play, but I can't bring myself to replay it. Wind Waker, on the other hand, was super enjoyable and I've beaten it multiple times. I'd say that Skyward Sword is better than Zelda II, which is actually fun, but I'm too terrible at to beat, and then the DS games, and sure, Minish Cap.

All Zelda games are enjoyable, though, so it's not too big of a deal.

I'm mainly worried that I won't enjoy it, plus the fact I'd have to actually purchase a Wii as well, seems a bit excessive for something that doesn't have much re-playability. I go through games quickly, so I'll probably pass.

Besides, I played the DS Zelda games and that pretty much killed the series for me. xD
Oh well, back to SWTOR I go~
