Problem is you're definitely in the minority Rain. I'm sure even with many that want to play it, most of us would want at least one of those games (I'm not sure if DS3 is a typo of XS3 or actually Devil Summoner 3, but both can count here) over Ar Tonelico; I know I'm pretty much interested in all of them over it anyways. But coming out after Winter and we're done with those big hits, we'll definitely get Ar Tonelico.

Rogue Galaxy however is a bit more iffy for me, but that's irrelevant at this point.

I'm kinda hoping for more delays really, just as long as they aren't the games I /really/ want - I'd like Devil Summoner and Super Paper Mario a lot for the lower profile games (as low profile as Mario can be anyway), and those are some of the ones I see having the highest risk of being delayed - Heck, GameStop's site is calling for SPM to come out early next year though Nintendo's site has a definite release (either Oct 9th or 11th - I can't remember, it was right by PM2's entry).

Ironically, FFXII's release date (or shipping date rather, but this game's big enough for GameStop/EB to get it in early) is more fitting for Devil Summoner. :P

The PSP and DS aren't in the same situation as the current roster of home consoles, where you can release near-identical versions on all systems with minimal loss. the PSP and DS need games specifically tailored to them moreso, and a Riviera on PSP and DS would likely be very different titles.

If they haven't already, those terrorists are just gonna realize its easier to make fake attack plans to scare their enemies into whittling down their freedoms and luxuries. They'll keep up with violence too, but I don't think it's unreasonable to think they plan to mess with people like this.

People are reactionary over things like this, and for various reasons America probably is far worse than any other nation about it. It probably won't take much, espicially with our media, to stir up a frenzy.

The naysayers have something wrong with their eyes.


Sorry, but no.

They were meant to be displayed at the GBA resolution.  Blowing them up and applying a filter is not going to make them more detailed.

Wrong, technically. They were meant for a WonderSwan Color screen, not the GBA. Still though, they gave that a more significant visual overhaul than this (portraits that don't suck ass!), and the resolutions were probably much closer.

I think it'd be better if they stopped and really took their time with this. Not releasing it as 'Riviera plus voice acting', but as "Riviera with voice acting, animated portraits, and more unique backgrounds". Heck, just upgrading the damn sprites, the one thing I think looks the worst there, would be great.

But then they might as well just make Riviera 2 for the PSP.

IGN story.

Edit: Edited topic title because it keeps misleading me, and I can.

B) I'm very disappointed that it's not for PS2, so I can't actually import it.

You know deep down that the XBox was the only system fitting for such a title.

Well, it's still costly to put what amounts to two tiny TVs in a headset. We'll probably see something that works sooner or later, but for now it's basically just a gimmick at a few places and the premise of Nintendo's one true failure.

The portraits look like they are at a higher resolution but the ingame stuff definitely looks like some crappy filter job.  I wonder if they will take the time to re-master the music...

In any case...  SCEA, "Denied."



... most likely.

I hate that pessimism, but fuck if SCEA isn't being total dickwads about this shit at the moment.

Still though, the extensive use of voice acting, if dubbed, may make it OK. I dunno, like noted before if the cinemas worked for VP, VA may work for ToP, and this as well.

One report noted that a guy couldn't take anything carry on a flight to (from?) San Francisco, so I'm afraid that actually is happening, though likely just amongst insanely paranoid cities/airports.

The can thing's sad, but it's likely just because they recognize that while they're doing this for the sake of safety, 99.9999%+ of those drinks are prefectly harmless, and whatever harmful stuff there is will just be diluted by all the Coke and Coffee and crap mixed in.

I suppose that Tequila would just make it worse though.

Virtual reality? Let's hope not. Virtual reality's been done. It delivers very little to the actual user experience and has proven itself as vapourware in terms of headsets and goggles.

Similar could be said about motion sensing - surely we all recall the Power Glove and how ineffective that ultimately was. What's important is basically practicality. The Wii's technically unproven, but has had a favorable start. Once we see something to, say, the Virtual Boy akin to the Wiimote to the Power Glove, then Virtual Reality will kick off.

Not to plug the rival's site, but RPGamer has a nice, insanely huge version of that cover for those that care to see it in more detail then they'll get with the actual case. :P

The portraits, or portrait rather, look great - the rest looks like the filter you described.

Picked up American Gods, this time bought rather than borrowed from the library. I'll read either this or Heretics of Dune sometime, and probably one of the short stories in Smokes and Mirrors - disappointed in myself on holding off on that, since part of the reason I got it was so I'd have some good short stories to quickly blow through when I feel like it.

Man, I ignored that too. I suck. :P
