Guys, remember when it was posted about earlier? Well, It's out. It's going for $46 (including shipping). Anyone still want to get this, or no? :P
10697  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Never Winter Nights on: June 09, 2006, 01:42:18 AM
Well, I'm going to try for finishing at least chapter 1. I want to see if something I think will happen, happens. And... Bleh about improper punctuation/grammar. I'll just have to play and see for myself, as I can shut it out if it's not too horrible.

As for the disc deal: You need the disc to run the game? Maybe it's different from when you're playing a premium module you bought online, but I've installed the game normally and have played it without the disc in the system.

Bumping this up since, while it's nearly 3 monthes old... There haven't been enough posts to even make a second /page/ yet. Oh, and we bought the Diamond version.

Playing through the main campaign, despite the fact most people seem to think it sucks compared to the expansion packs (hi Stel), and I think I'm nearing the end of chapter 1. How well do the expansion packs connect to this, or are they their own story that may happen to have a character or two from this game? And any modules you guys would recommand? I'd espically like one with a strong story, but anything that's good will suffice, and the amount of modules on that Vault site is mind blowing. Thanks.

To be fair, the name likely won't be the same in the US - hell, IGN's translation was different from that name (Fresh Tingle's Rose Colored Rupee Land), but if the name remains half as stupid/awesome in the US... Fuck yes. :P

1up's story of the Tingle RPG and some DQ game. Yes, that is the name of the game. No, I'm not making it up. Also, Jeux France URL in the story leads to a scan.

Crap, how could I forget Neverwinter Nights 2?

It's probably one of the last true western RPGs that will be released.

Graphic adventure games are 'dead', yet there's still some new ones that come out every so often. I think we'll still be seeing them, as long as Obsidian and Bioware are in business.

Edit: Changed it to graphic adventures. Thanks to Nintendo and other companies, there's too many games that fall under just 'adventure'. :P

Neal: Good question, but I can't see it being that dramatically different - import system prices usually give us a good idea of what it'll cost in the US, even if the game prices aren't the same. And given the XBox Live Arcade, it would have to be in the same price range to compete.

Alisha: I may suck at explaining this, but... There's copyrights, then there's patents. Patents are on technology and inventions, while copyrights are for artistic (or 'artistic') creations. Unlike copyrights, patents only stay good for 20 years before it's out for everyone to use - as the NES came out 20 or so years ago, the technology, for the most part, is free for everyone to use.

Edit: John beat me to it, but he didn't explain the patent deal.

Edit 2: Wikipedia on NES clones!

Actually, it was originally that it'd last until the person died, than 50 years (I think it was 75 from creation for something owned by a corporation), but a few years back it got upped from 50 to 70 in the US. I might have the corporation bit wrong, but I'm pretty sure about the rest.

And just in time to keep me from freely, legally reading 1984 on the net. :( But hey, that's what libraries are for. :P

the xboox360 tri-ace game isnt an rpg,and what makes the psp port of VP so bad?

I'm curious as to where you heard the X360 game isn't an RPG. As for the VP port, there's some graphical issues, and /loading/ for the menu, despite the system having more ram in all areas than the original PSX. Incidentally, the porting is being handled by the same company that did the ports for FFIV-VI and CT to the PSX, Tose.

Edit: Those issues won't stop me from getting it though. Paying $40 to replace a damaged game, with some new extras and new flaws, beats the hell out of paying $100+ for the exact same game I already have, and already nearly-completed.

Well, I can't imagine the NES and SNES titles costing much more. Afterall, it'd be ridiculous to charge 10 bucks for each NES game - some litterally are not worth that much anymore, maybe not even half of that. It did seem a bit cheap for more modern N64 titles, however.
10706  The Rest / General Discussions / All new and better DS on: June 07, 2006, 08:16:33 PM
No clue yet. Knowing Nintendo, a few monthes after release.

Hm, to be honest, $8.99 seems a little high to me. Sure, if it's a high quality SNES title like say Chrono Trigger (do we know yet if 3rd party games will be on there as well? God, I hopse so) I'd happily pay that, but no way I'll shell out that much for a NES game.

Depends on the NES game. Fuck no to games like the original Donkey Kong and others that are closer to old arcade/Atari 2600 titles. But I'd (grudgingly) pay that much for the original SMB, and gladly for Crystalis. Honestly though, I think the 10-ish point is more for N64 titles, with SNES games in between, and NES titles at the lowest cost.

This year's going to nuts for games period, there's probably more RPGs that were overlooked on that list, and that's not counting all the on the fence games (Zelda, SPM, the new CV).

Edit: For others missing though... There's the American RPGs/on the fence titles like NWN2, the Witcher, Mass Effect, and Bioshock too, although I admit I'm not sure if the last two will make it out this year.. And shit, I forgot aboutt Devil Summoner.
10709  The Rest / General Discussions / Iwata sets japanese prices for Virtual Console titles. on: June 07, 2006, 04:54:07 PM
1up story.

Good prices. I'm sold. Again.

Testament - given your stance, I half suspect it may be more likely you'll like FFXII than not. In fact, for the /full/ game it seems like Gast is the only one that didn't love it to death, as two others who are regulars here found the game to be awesome as hell.

Personally... Eh. DoC seems to be an action game first and foremost, but more importantly a /crappy/ action game, so I'm not worried about it unless the changes in the localization suddenly make it fantastic. NIS games haven't been impressing me much as of late, and I've heard Blade Dancer sucked. So I think I'll just wait to see what others say, and almost certainly will flat out skip them.

FFXII, VP:S, and RG are the ones with the most interest from me. The Mana games are a priority too, assuming Square gets Dawn of Mana out before the year end, and DQ: Rocket Slime and Super Paper Mario are titles I'd really like. However, I'm getting pumped up for the Wii, so I'm not sure if I can get all of them right away, or at least play. I'll just have to wait and see.

Oh, and VP: Lenneth will be out this summer, a little over a month from now in fact, and Blue Dragon  almost certainly won't be out.
