I think this takes the biscuit for necroposting. You replied to this comment a good seven years after I originally posted this remark in 2009. I don’t even really use this account anymore so it’s a wonder I even saw this.
This is the best way to explain it. I had trouble following it when just an example with three dragons was used but it's really quite straightforward if you start at the bottom and work your way up.
Uh, even though I love 3.5 I've got to say that PF is just a really clumsy attempt to fix 3.5. It gets some things right but screws up a bunch of other things such that the main advantage PF has over 3.5 is that it's still in print and new material is still being released. And yeah I share your criticisms of 4E, I… Read more
They were pretty decent in 3.5, especially once splatbooks hit the table.
Not sure why you're picking out the bard, bards in 3.5 were one of the better classes. The ones that struggled to be relevant outside the early levels tended to be stuff like fighters, monks (especially monks), and paladins.
I hate arguments that revolve around balance when it comes to D&D. It's a roleplaying game, not a computer game. The system doesn't need to be the arbiter of balance because it's not set in stone. 3.5's system may have balance issues up the wazoo but it does NOT mean you can't play a balanced game using it. Any half… Read more
Pretty sure Babylon 5 was on previous versions of the chart though.
Cause it's from the movie.
This is from the movie, it's a little different.
You missed one of the biggest flaws of FFXIII, that the characters have zero agency. Which might not in itself be a bad thing but it's kind of terrible when they realise they have no agency, decide that they're not going to be bound by fate, decide that they're going to go against what they're being manipulated into… Read more
The elements that made up the initial concept trailer for FFXIII Versus still all seem to be in the new XV. I mean it's not like they showed much in that initial trailer anyway. But XV still has Prince Noctis with his magic sword shield thing and his teleportation powers. I'm sure it's changed a lot during development… Read more
One thing people seem to forget is that SE announced the game back when it was in its planning stages. Which y'know is generally not a good idea. Most games are announced after they've been in development for at least a year or two. Some sooner, if they're an annual franchise that can churn out similar product on a… Read more
I avoided trailers for FFXIII so I hadn't seen this before, but god is that misleading. Unfortunately my hopes for FFXV are still pretty high, but honestly I think the trailers we've seen for it are a little more substantial.
I wasn't a big fan of his FFX incarnation. Too humanoid for a dragon and it had those peacock wings and weirdass gold wheel. Still beats the crap out of the reject transformers garbage that was his FFXIII outing though.
Wow, I'd never seen the animated version. That was awesome. I've always loved how alive the world of Monster Hunter feels. All the enemies feel so much more a part of the world than the monster fare you get in many other games. Read more
Still got nothing on Monster Hunter.
Uh, isn't this just the equivalent of paying for a better broadband plan? The real danger is in letting ISPs charge companies to give their content a higher priority in delivering it to the consumer. Netflix isn't paying Comcast to prioritise delivering their content to Comcast customers, they're paying Comcast for a… Read more
The whole dickwolves controversy had mistakes on both sides. Penny Arcade did not react to it well, and it certainly hasn't helped them. But frankly the root blame lies with the people who took offence at it and started labelling it a "rape joke". Rape was not the punchline, the comic was about how MMO quests are… Read more
Negis magi erebea was never animated (well actually it might have been in that movie I haven't watched, but that's not canon as it's an alternate ending) but would totally deserve a spot if it was. Read more
