If she wants to die, better to give her the choice later. She may've been fortunate if she was aborted, but she seems to be enjoying her life regardless. And it's hard to tell how things like this will turn out during pregnancy, since at first it looked like it was just going to be a cleft palate, something some people here were born with as I recall.

I want to say more, but I swear I can't formulate my thoughts any further.

The couch thing isn't a big deal. If that's all it was, I'd laugh at his stupid shit and blow it off. It's that damn scientology/psychology rant that keeps me from taking him seriously. Other actors and actresses are scientologists, and I really don't like that 'religion', but he went and made a public spectale out of himself when interviewed, without resorting to jumping on people's couches.

This will admittedly  have to depend on my experinces for when I play it, but it looks to me like XS could still be around if XS2 was more like XSIII.

I really don't fully get their changes - it may've been better for the story and telling it to go with more realistic designs, but such an abrupt change was just /horrible/ for a constantly ongoing series. It worked for FFVIII while managing to make Tetsuya Nomura evolve more as a character designer, but XSII just seemed to be trying to appeal far too much to the american audience they discovered they could sell the game to - going from one extreme in several areas to the other. It espicially looks awkward now compared to XSIII. :P

Edit: This post made me realize something - no matter what, XSIII's going to make me bitch. If it's a crappy, or at least average game, then I'll lament how Monolith Soft turned a series I was initially enjoying into a huge disappointment. If they make this a great game, then I'll just criticize XSII harder for being the odd one out of the series.

So then they will either have to (well not have to, but you know what I mean) release some of their other older RPGs on the GBA, or stop doing ports for it.

Like it or not, I think it's pretty much guaranteed to be the second choice. The GBA is at the end of it's life - those ports may very well be the system's last great games pending a US release of Mother 3. And with the virtual console, they can just casually throw less profitable titles on that to sell.

We hog about everything we get - games typically either get lost, or broken (not too frequent, though many PSX discs have some serious scratches). We however DID let go of my copy of Luigi's Mansion, and my brother's copy of Kessen 2 - neither of us liked Kessen 2, and Luigi's Mansion, while it was moderately enjoyable, is one of the games I have the lowest incentive to ever replay. The money from these two games went to my brother getting Metroid Prime.

Too many games are either A. too cheap to be worth anything (I figure), B. too rare for me to want to let got at all, or C. too damn good to let go of.

Old news. It's a rip off, but they probably will get a lot of views, and I don't think this was really aimed at anyone that isn't some nutso Madden fan.

There's probably not enough new quality to make it worth retranslating more than the parts necessary, but they retranslated anyway. It's supposed to be the highest quality translation of all the releases, too.
10478  Media / Single-Player RPGs / The future of Squeenix's GBA ports on: August 04, 2006, 01:42:48 AM
Given they're GBA ports, expecting anything beyond FFIV's quality is absurd. It's either the quality FFIV got into being ported and lightly remade, or kept exactly the same - and the screens I saw seem to indicate those two will remain the same graphically. V may've looked slightly better, but VI looked the same.

Now that I think about it, if they tried to stick to XS Ep V being XG, it'd be really awkward. There'd be 3 games focusing on one period, contained entirely in a little over a year, then all of a sudden there's another game thousands of years later covering one point, then another game leaping forward several thousand years. That'd seem a bit messy to me.

I wouldn't mind a port of Secret of Evermore. I enjoyed that game.

The most I think you can hope for with that is SE cares /just/ enough to put it on the Virtual Console. It's probably one of the most likely to appear on that too, since there's probably zero incentive for them to ever properly re-release it.
10481  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Xenosaga Episode III: Also Sprach Zarathustra on: August 04, 2006, 12:10:52 AM
The bitterest irony to me is that, for me, it was pretty much fucked from XSII regardless - if that did great, the series would continue with that style, and more importantly that battle system, and I wouldn't touch it at all. Thus, to make the series good again for me, it had to fail to the point they'd make this game to close it off. My best hope is that this does so well in all areas that they make a new Xeno* series to deal with the other parts. As is, doesn't sound like that's happening in Japan, and I don't see it having much success over here.

Though they might do that anyway in a cheap way to regain interest. Hey look, it's a new series! Sorta. I guess it works for Megaman anyway.

Waitaminute!

How can this game conclude everything?  Doesn't there have to be another game (since the original Xenogears was "Episode V")?

1. This is continuing with the assumption that Xenosaga would inevitably lead to Xenogears.

2. We pretty much know what happens after the crash and to the present day of XG, it likely concludes everything that XS itself has left hanging open, and possibly leads up to the crash. If anything, it's the details of Episode VI that are the greatest mystery, and will likely remain as such.

CEA actually doesn't have anything against 2-D games on PSP (they do on PS2, to an extent), but they do require the 30% new content in PS1 games, to be released on PSP (which isn't 100% clear anyway).

I think they just bullshitted a number. 10 minutes of new FMVs certainly doesn't equal 30% new content, and it's just hard as hell to measure where the screen resizing fits. I think their policy is more 'if it doesn't have any significant new additions, turn it down', which is a shame, but is likely done in the first place /because/ of this.

... Though I'm hoping games like BoFIII and ToE have special widescreen modes using code ripped from the PSP ports.

Heh. Now anything past this is just beating a dead horse.

It's too early to say shit about whether or not it'll be on the PSP, and it's not like Sony or Nintendo have much say beyond approving/denying it, and I doubt Nintendo would deny it. Sony probably would, but that's made a non-issue with the PSX download service, where it once again becomes a matter of whether or not Konami goes through... And if they're doing this for the fucking /XBox/, I think there's a good chance we can get it when PSX downloads go up.
