question? Got a comment? Got a concern? Got a beef? Be
thinking of getting a RPG game for the ps2, which one should I
get, I’m new to console RPGs so which one will be easier for me
to get into, Kingdom Hearts of Final Fantasy X?
A: Be a smart
lad and buy Kingdom Hearts. It is one of the most refreshing games
to come around in years, and while it’s not perfect, it comes
pretty close. This is the "smart" thing to do because
buying FFX now would be jumping the gun. It is due "Greatest
Hits" status soon, which means a substantial price drop. That
means by the time you are all finished with Kingdom Hearts you can
pick up a brand new copy of FFX for under $30 bucks.
those of you that have gotten...or some how know... how do you get
your Twisted Metal Black Online game? Does it get sent in the
regular mail, by FedEx, or by UPS?
A: TMBO, which
comes free after mailing in the special offer that comes with the
Sony Network Adaptor, is sent USPS in a DVD case-sized cardboard
sleeve with a manual glued to it, all of it shrink wrapped for
your convenience. If you got a NA within its first week of release
and mailed the offer away the very same day you should see it on
your doorstep sometime soon.
Q: I really
enjoyed Warriors of Might and Magic on PS2. I got it when I traded
in some games and had $20 left to use so it was basically an
afterthought. It reminds me of a less polished Baldur's Gate: Dark
Alliance. What would you say is the most under appreciated game on
the Playstation 2?
Fantasy VIII. It is one of the best story-driven games ever made;
yet few give it the respect it deserves. The plot, the pace, the
suspense, and the imagery are the best Square has done this side
of Final Fantasy Tactics. The game is a dark ride full of twists
and turns that plays more like an action-movie or a Chuck
Palahniuk novel than what you’d expect of a Final Fantasy title.
The combat is highly polished, and although many found the Draw
system to be annoying it managed to give players reason to look
forward to random battles as oppose to dread them. All in all it
is one of the better games of the 32-bit era and one that is often
dismissed by friends and enemies of console RPGS alike.
