Single-Player RPGs / Ys IX
« on: December 19, 2018, 07:26:05 AM »

So three years later, we're hearing rumbling on the next Ys game. This one looks to be taking a trip to not-France.

(Admittedly, I was considering renovating the Ys VIII thread for this, but these forums are dead enough nowadays that I don't think it matters any more.)


And on the same day they reveal that Bomberman made it into Smash too.

General Games / E3 2018: Wait. What happened to 2017!?
« on: June 07, 2018, 05:39:31 AM »
I should've gotten too old for this shit, but here I am, on the road again. Here I am, up on the stage.

*ahem* That aside, conferences start off with EA posting about their latest lootboxes Sony doing some sort of 5 day pre-E3 reveal thingy (probably because their entire actual conference will all be one long sizzle reel in an effort to try to get you to forget that you're 35+ yrs old raising two point five kids on your own at minimum wage for about 5 minutes). This will be followed by EA latest innovations in nickle and diming techniques, followed by Fallout 76, and more Devolver madness (which is the big reason why I regret not making an E3 2017 thread last year), then deets on Squeenix's latest Tomb Raider project, with Ubisoft bringing up the rear in terms of irrelevant shit. Then E3 actually starts with Sony's aforementioned Sizzle Reel VR tech, followed by 25 minutes of actual, upcoming games, being presented the next day.

Or you can take a moment to reflect on the knowledge that this year's E3 is the ten year anniversary of E3 2008 where we were given the gaming gifts such as Shaun White Snowboarding, Raving Rabbids TV Party, SPORE Creatures, Playstation HOME, Gran Tourismo TV, DC Universe Online trailer, God of War 3 trailer, MAG trailer and 12~13 minutes of Wii Music along with the new 80 Gig PS3 hardware bundle for only $400 bux.

So what sighting are you looking to make this year? UFOs? Bigfoot? Elvis? Kingdom Hearts 3?

General Games / Mega Man X Collections 1 & 2
« on: April 13, 2018, 06:23:12 AM »

Well, at least they're cheap, and only $20 zenny for three really good SuperNES/PS1 era action platformers (and another $20 to remind yourself why Capcom's glory days are long gone; or to find out why if you were born after 2006).

(I'm making a separate thread for this because I don't want to bury the lead on Bulletwitch's revival necroing, plus having a platform to PYF MMX memories/opinions/hot takes at this juncture might not hurt too badly.)

I'll start with this to kick things off:

C-c-combo Breaker! (Also, could've used a third row to show off the Gaia, Shadow and Ultimate Armors and either unarmored X or Alia for the lulz.)

Single-Player RPGs / Metal Max Xeno announced for the west.

I never thought I'd see the day. Not going to preorder though since NISA's handling the localization.

Single-Player RPGs / Fire Emblem: [s]Tree[/s] Three Houses
« on: March 08, 2018, 02:39:12 AM »
In before yet another Kozaki designed Male/Avatar (but clearly implied to default to Male) Sword Lord (take THAT Leif).

But yeah, the next Nintendo Direct was announced yesterday, set for today, its highly likely that we'll finally get something from that announced FE Switch from that FE Direct last year, but I'll be finishing up my deliveries for the day on the opposite side of town when this goes down, and I really wanted to make the above joke. Link to the offending Direct: (watch it totally have nothing worthwhile, let alone anything about any supposed FE Switches)

Basically, I'm really hoping for a Female Lord this time (or at least a Female Lord that's not incompetent/overshadowed by the male lords; i.e. Lucina if she were an actual Lord instead of an honorary one (outside of certain DLC)), and preferably one sans the crotch window (I'll endure Miniskirts and/or Bicycle Shorts). Basically, I'd like a female FE character to get a Prf that isn't also on her male counterpart and not added to a remake because IntSyst decided to make their dramatic change there (last one was Thani all the way back in FE10). Bonus points if the Lord this time is a Bow or Staff Lord instead of yet another Sword Lord.

Other hopes include it actually being good, and having an artist that isn't Kozaki (he got better with Fates, but I still feel like his designs are too messy and not actually well designed; especially the female stuffs).

And hell, if this does turn out to be a total bust, then I'll repurpose this as a general Megathread (although the Heroes talk can remain in that thread since it'd just bury this one).

Single-Player RPGs / Trails of Cold Steel IV

Its not even been six months since they announced Sen III and now they're announcing #4. Though it does look and sound like we might be nearing a culmination with this one.

Single-Player RPGs / Zwei: The Arges Adventure
« on: December 01, 2017, 06:52:50 AM »
XSEED is releasing Falcom's 3D Action-RPG Zwei!! for the PC this Winter, retitled as Zwei: The Arges Adventure. Source

Now this is one I've been excited for. It seems to be fairly obscure, even by Falcom standards, but it looks like a fun, quirky game. I'm not sure how the second game compares, but I'm just glad we get to play the first one, even with a title change.

Single-Player RPGs / Secret of Mana: The Remake!
« on: August 25, 2017, 06:26:45 AM »


Adventure of Edit: On second thought. I don't have anybody to play this with anymore.... T_T

At least it means "SD3 Remake and worldwide release when?".

Secret of Edit: Also, I hope that screenshot of English Text doesn't mean that they're staying strictly to the old Woosley Localization, especially if VAing gets involved.

So it came up in the Game Journal that a new Tales of Megathread might be nice, especially considering that we have a barely used Symphonia thread on the front page along with a Beseria thread for the latest game, and neither is a good place to talk about Vesperia, the latest popularity poll results, or the latest Tales of Crossover game.

So discuss your tales of Tales of Whatever, and hell, bring the crossover kids along. God knows we still need to keep talking about Project X Zones 1 & 2, amirite? (Don't answer this.)

Single-Player RPGs / New Radiant Historia!

I'm going to be so ever loving pissed if this is a mobile title.

And I'm going to hold my composure until I'm certain that they don't do something stupid like give us Bland von Japanese Highschooler McEveryMaleAnimeProtagonist or make it yet another Persona clone.

Single-Player RPGs / Fire Emblem Echoes
« on: January 18, 2017, 07:28:07 PM »

Probably the biggest piece of actual news that came from that FE direct. There's the next remake, and its of Gaiden (figured it'd either be this or 4). Lets hope they actually try to rebalance it this time (or at least design some actual battlefields instead of empty plains), or failing that, leaving it alone enough to let westerners experience the majesty of FE2 Archers and Falcon Knights.

(Kinda disappointed in Celica's redesign. Should've gone with a more yellow pallet.) Edit: renamed the thread while I'm fixing my post.
