I've cheated (via gameshark and action replay) my way through RPGs before, mainly because I'm playing for the story. I see no problem with doing that (cheating for personal use, just to get through a game you like quicker than normal). Platformers and action/adventure games, there's no real point IMO unless the cheats are fun.

Man, I remember back in the days of the NES Game Genie, there was this cheat for SMB3 where you could swim through the air or walk through the air or something; that was my favorite for a long time. :)

It can be annoying to do it that way, though, because if you want to play anything else afterward you have to wait for the Wii to reload and all that... that's why I didn't suggest just shutting it (the Wii) off after saving your game in the first place. :3

Sorry 'bout that, jangonov... I was bored and needed something to play too. :3

Anyway, check your Wii, Adam; you should have a game to download. Thanks again. :)

Breath of Fire II was a lot of fun... just be careful of who you invite to live back at your place later in the game, because someone useless may take the place of someone who'll sell you awesome stuff. :3

At least you're automatically thrown into the Home menu as soon as you start the game, though, so you can just reset on your way in. :)

If you're willing to ship it envelope-style, Adam, I've got an extra 700 Wii points I'm not using at the moment. I'd really like to have the instruction booklet, though.

Go to the 'home' menu and choose 'reset'. It'll behave as if you just reset the Genesis/SNES/whatever.

AuthorRe: RPGs and Jobs

11,986. Posted:

In RPGs i've played where I remember having jobs was a feature (FFIII, V, Tactics), I'm pretty sure I'd play as one type until I earned a skill I could put into their battle menu (Ninja for throwing, Monk for focus or retaliate, Thief for stealing, etc.) and then move on to a different job that would give me a different natural ability or something to take advantage of that. I'm pretty sure I had some kind of warrior-class character dual-wielding some heavy-duty axes in one of my games, for example (got the dual-wield ability and then could naturally equip the axes)... it's been a while, though. :3

@SonicMaster: Kirbrie Swissty-four was pretty good, and so was the Grated Cheesius one (which is why i commented; no sense killing a perfectly good pun by going overboard :)). This whole thread is fun.

@SonicMaster: less is more with these puns... 'Grated Cheesius Rebirth' is fine, no need for the added Brie (besides, Brie's a soft cheese; is grating even possible?). :)

There's always Bit.Trip: Colby, if rhythm games are up your alley, and Sword of Velveeta if you're up to an RPG. Legend of the Mystical Niolo is reputed to be fun, but I could never get into it myself.

You really do want to play through both at least once in your gaming life, but...

if you like classic RPGs (think any of the pre-VII Final Fantasy games), go for CT first because you've never played it. CT starts off a little slow, but has an engaging story that will draw you in as you play. It also has more than 10 endings and a New Game+ option, so you'll be playing for days (or weeks, or months even, depending on how long you play per day or whether you take a break between playthroughs) in order to see them all (and you do want to see most of them). Because CT is a classic RPG, you may want to find an online guide, as there may be places you'll get stuck and not know quite where to go next.

If you'd prefer a more modern RPG or you're not up to playing a game that will have you busy for quite so long, go for TWEWY. Its story will have you interested from the jump, and while it does have replay value, it's not quite to the same extent as CT. I think it took me about a week to get through the main story and then all the extra reports afterward, including Another Day. Unlike classic RPGs, it's hard to get lost or not know what to do next in TWEWY.
