Unfortunately, I was 7 when it came out and I had to throw a shitfit to even get my parents to buy me a SNES.  Then by the time I was old enough to afford a Sega CD it was already too expensive.

I'm sure my experience is not unique.

^ I still have my OG Sega CD copies of those games. Only SCD games I kept, actually... I regret not keeping Popful Mail. 

I wish the Silver Star Story kept the darker vibes of the Sega CD version. I was disappointed with the increased cuteness, ...as well as the shittier music.

The madmen actually gave us a QR seal. I bet Armads will get some kind of upgrade next time they add more reforges since everyone can run his signature combo now. I've so far avoided promoting any Subakis to 5* so it's nice to have my misering rewarded. Now they just need to add Distant Counter, Steady Breath and Fury seals (the final one just so people can run a Triple-Fury Eldigan who takes 18 damage after battle). It's just that as always, it sucks to have to constantly shift seals around so you can only ever have one guy carrying the QR seal.

Promoting Adult Tiki would certainly go well with the QR seal, but personally I've had a -SPD +DEF one (Personally I think if you have the option you should just dump SPD on her since its unsalvageable anyway) at 4* for a while, and while she does her designated role really well, I've never felt the need to promote her because people just don't run axes that much, mostly one of Hector, Amelia or BIke, and you don't need such a dedicated unit like Tiki to take them out. Her weakness to Nino's brute force and Naga kinda limits her ability as a team Red too. That and her optimum build really wants you to stick Steady Breath on her so she can spam Aether or some other long charge move.

finally found Lunar 1 and 2 complete for a reasonable price!

 I let them go for nothing 10+ years ago and have had an itch to get back into them for the last month.

It's too bad going the Sega CD route is cost prohibitive because I've never played those versions.

And speaking of, the Seals this time are fucking ridiculous. We have Seal Atk (good for tanks like Sheena), Def Ploy (Arvis says "Come to daddy.") and Quick Retort (so many fucking units want this; Camus, Xander, Ryoma, Fjorm, Any Dragon with Lightning Breath+, the list goes on). And considering that a 1.4x multiplier unit is available literally one battle into the t_t, I'm calling this one of the most generous (that said, NYCorrin is rather incredibly underwhelming as a seasonal unit, but whadda expect from a free 5 star).

The day before was a good stark reminder as to why Alcoholics Anonymous is such a balls sucking mode. Nothing like trying to take a serious stab at the mode only to get wrecked on the seventh round because you ran out of items from all of the previous whale hunts (and all I was trying to do was to avoid getting shipped to the 13-Coin/Poprock tier; my serious attempt might have only probably landed me in the 15 or 14 whatevers tier anyways). The entire mode is dog shit and its too bad I can't retake that survey to further convey these renewed feelings of disdain at this situation.

Also kicking around the idea of promoting an Adult Tiki. All of mine are -HP but the choice of whether to go for +Atk, +Def or +Spd weighs heavily on my mind (well, okay, not +Spd/-HP, Tiki's way too slow for that).

No, they found Takumi's account.

Speaking of Takumi...



-atk but +spd, so it's okay and he's right in time for the new Trials.

And yet still we have WARGARBLLLLL WHERE MAH CHRONO TRIGGER and FF6?!?! crowd. News flash: they even remade your CT and FF6 like-games you always wanted. Its called I am Sestuna and Bravely Default. Oh and both those games are trash grindfests but I'm sure they'd be incredible where they belonged, in 1994. You are even getting your Secret of Mana. Oh and here comes a new Dragon Quest, whose archaic battle system and barebones story will probably bore you to tears by hr. 30.  RETRO JRPG MASTER RACE R U NOT ENTERTAINED?

Calling you out on this. Bravely Default was a poor substitution (even before getting into the second half, or the original JP version) and I am Gundam! was pretty much a publisher funded College Student's Grad Project (littered with plagiarism, completely tonedeaf, had only one moderate hook to run into the ground, horribly unbalanced, and just shabby all around). Hence why Bravely Second is a game that most people only consider to have existed at one time, but isn't talked about much, and nobody listed Lost Spheda (I could be wrong, its been a while since I checked) in their Anticipated Games of 2018 Thread posts.

Besides, for every CT/FFVI fanboi still griping about the lack of sequels, you still have plenty of Suikoden fandom clamoring for a true Suki VI, or Level 5 fans wishing for lightning to strike the same place twice for Dark Cloud 3, or Shadow Hearts fans waiting for the IP to fall into someone else's hands.

Uh, you realize that neither Chrono Trigger nor FF6 required any grinding.  FF6 in particular was too easy if anything.

Marle having a bow that makes her not useless in the endgame on the DS version is nice though.
