    Mega Man X5 had a LAME ending. That is when the story and game went down hill for me.

    Corrected, for great truth.

    Actually, I don't know about Betrayal at Krondor, I never got to play it when I was younger. I might go ahead and download it, after all there's got to be a reason why you're so absolutely crazy over it.

    You know the latest craze in RPGs now, right? Specific stats that increase when you keep using a certain skill? Well BaK invented that.
    Another cool thing is that you can play the lute at taverns to earn gold. If you're really bad at it, the innkeeper will kick you out. So you gotta keep practicing to get better at playing the lute and singing. However, there's a minstrel called Tamney in the game. He locked himself in a barn to hide the baron's men. So you gotta get him out somehow because he has something that you need to know something about moredhel spellcasters. How do you do that? Well you can buy some Fadamor's Formula (strength boosting potion) and force the barn open. =D
    Then you can coerce him into giving you what you need and to make you let him go, he gives you a practice lute!

    Woooooooooo, now how many games can go as deep as that for just a little thing? Especially that the game was released almost 15 years ago!

    It's not for the traditional RPG fan (just about any of today's Western or Japanese RPG from Elder Scrolls and Baldur's Gate to Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest) because nothing is clear. Where in the Elder Scrolls you are told to go there, kill something and fetch a device and in Final Fantasy you are basically following a very linear script, BaK will make you READ and THINK.
    For example, chapter three is titled (nine chapters written and told and played like a book) The Spyglass and the Spider.
    Here's the problem:
    You go to a town called Romney to meet up with some Royal Lancers (elite soldiers attached to the King). On arriving there in chapter two, you see that they had all been murdered in the Black Sheep Tavern. The only two suspicious items (clues) that have been left are a brass spyglass and an ornate spider. You have to find out who murdered these men using only these two clues.

    Another great thing about BaK are the spells. If you don't know how to solve the wordlock chests, buying spells can be a tough thing because they are amazingly expensive. There are tons of spells and all of them are vastly different. No such thing as Fire, Fira and Firaga here. There's no mana points at all. You wanna use a spell? Fine, it will take up your stamina and health (because magic in its essence is an ordeal by itself). The more the stamina and health points you want to spend on casting a spell, the longer it will last or the more the damage it will do. There are no elements here. No fire spell, no water crap and no thunder bullshit. All the spells have really cool names and their effects are completely different.
    For example, Unfortunate Flux is when you cause your enemy to sweat an amber-coloured liquid on which spirits feed. Spirits will appear and consume the liquid and your enemy alongside it. Properly named spell.

    So health+stamina points = overall hit points.

    However, when you receive damage, your stats will lower accordingly (which fucking makes sense). If your health is at 50%, all your stats will be at 50%.
    That's how deep the game is.
    Oh and you have to eat food. Poisoned food will poison you and food that's gone bad will make you sick and both of these will affect you greatly outside of battle.
    You can also die of hunger.


    I could go on for hours and hours on the greatness of Betrayal at Krondor.

    Probably not that well known of a game but some of the endings in the Radical Dreamers dissapointed me(about 2) as it was hard to get them only to be just dissapointed by the result.
    The New Super Mario Bros., Pheonix Wright: Justice for All(sadly, but still a great game), Rygar, Illusions of Gaia as terranigma produced no closure on what happened to Will and the others(couldn't go to cape hope in the game which SUCKS), and surprisingly Lunar 2. I'm sure there is more I just have to either replay the games or actually BEAT them(been a while since I had a long gaming binge).

    Ill go with LOZ: Links Awakening, because i hate that game.


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends
