I am currently playing a rom of Lunar for sega CD. The voice acting is way better than XIV. Wow.
Lunar is quite possibly one of the most underrated RPGs of all time. Once you beat Silver Star Story, don't forget to play Lunar 2: Eternal Blue next. It's just as good, if not better depending on who you ask. I got Lunar Silver Star Harmony (PSP remake) and am re-enjoying the game all over again.

I'm P.O.ed about the nerf - not necessarily just about the SP (cause apparently with GA it is about the same SP as fishing for the whole half hour, maybe just a bit less IF you catch every fish - which I don't on the R30s) - but because they effectively took away my half hour of content and replaced it with 5 minutes of content.
I know it seems crazy that I might actually want to play the game for more than 5 minutes at a time occasionally...
I guess for me the fact that they took something away from me that I enjoyed - something that made me feel like I was progressing - and replaced it with a quest where I hook 6 fish and don't feel like I am progressing at all. So yeah, now I will spend more time running to the leve than doing it. I guess this is just par for the course - but I am angry.
I would rather have 1/2 hour of less boosted SP than 5 minutes of more boosted SP. Crazy, I know - but I want to actually play the game.
I'm trying to spare my LS mates and playing offline games until I am less furious - but if SE doesn't say something soon (and it better not be "we're adding an auction house!") I am going to begin to commence to start looking at other options for an MMO. I've got 3 months of crysta keyed in - I am not going to delete my character or anything, but I am furious. FURIOUS.
SE says nothing for weeks and then emerges from the ether to nerf one of the few things I actually logged in semi-religiously to do.
Wow. See... this post REALLY scares me, and most people won't understand why, so I'll have to explain:
Back when we all (most of the original members of our linkshell) started playing together in Beta 3, we all had positive outlooks on the game. As time went on through Beta 3 and Open Beta, these positive outlooks started to dim. Admittedly, I was one of the first ones to lose their positive outlook, but that's not relevant to the point I'm going to make.
On a scale of 1-10, where 10 is "most excited" and 10 is "least excited", I'd say we all started at a 9-10. Over time, these numbers tarted to drop, but Olor has been an 11 as long as I can remember. Olor has always been looking on the bright side of things, always the one telling me that the game will be great, always the one telling me that I need to stop being negative and look at all the awesome things about XIV, that I'm overreacting, etc. While I may have disagreed and argued with her, she was always defending the game. On several occasions, I'd even try to get her to say something negative about the game. Even one negative thing at all. And her answer would usually end up being a positive one anyway, something like "Well, X isn't as good as it could be but it's still fun!" or something like that.
For Olor, someone who has been defending the game to me since day 0 whenever I was dogging it, to come out and say something this negative about the game... it really scares me.
It makes me wonder how hard SE really is working at restoring the faith and trust of their players when someone who has been one of their biggest cheerleaders is outright ****** off.
