Sounds like it may just be a barebones update. And if that pans out it makes it all the more baffling that SE felt it was worth cutting Vita out of the loop... and PS3/360 for that matter.

Maybe SE's just lost it entirely at this point.

lol teh axents in dq4-6 suk amirite?

Stop this.

It's gotta to be a mobile game. For starters, 95% of Japanese gamers don't care about consoles but just mobile games and handhelds. So I could see this being at least a Vita game.

He's outright written off doing a mobile game (as in iOS/Android anyway) and there seems to be implications of wanting to do the next game on a console with statements like "looking forward to playing it on the big screen" or whatever. And Vita goes against the philosophy of going for the most active system, though I guess that's probably going to break next time anyway.

I'm starting to wonder if games are wearing out the open world thing.

Zelda was one of THE original open world games, they have a better claim to it than most long running series would.

Nintendo said twice that it was coming this year. Excuse me for believing the game's own publisher. :/

It's a bit late, but after several other games in the past I tend to not believe a game is actually going to come out soon without more substantial information being shown, like characters and the game being named. Now that this is done and they announced 2015 as the release date I'm reasonably confident we'll see it then, whereas "X" always seemed to be shown too early.

More details on PS Blog, stated to be an action RPG.
21  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bloodborne on: June 10, 2014, 01:12:12 AM
Is this even an RPG?

Going by leaked footage it's clearly a spiritual successor to the Souls games. I'm assuming it is until we see information that indicates otherwise.

Is it really that hard to leave a quote alone when you're only quoting that short of a message? That just makes you look condescending as hell.
23  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Possible Return of "DARK CLOUD" (Sony registers "Dark Chronicle" trademark) on: April 26, 2014, 11:06:33 PM
Edited the topic name to say what exactly happened.

They could also be releasing Dark Cloud 1+2 as classics. Not getting my hopes up.

For fans of the games even that can be considered a victory. A small one, but it's keeping the game(s) available at least.

63% average on Metacritic, and mixed impressions on forums... A bit of a letdown for something so many were hyped about. Good thing Demon Gaze is almost out.

There really wasn't hype on my end, I was just curious about how it'd turn out since apparently the first played with player expectations on being a "waifu game" or whatever and that Spike Chunsoft developed and Atlus published. But it fell flat, so whatever.

Heads up to the staff, the article about this named the wrong Oreshika as getting brought over.

Oh yeah, missed this earlier. Sony didn't mention the first game in their press release so it's on them not communicating which game it was, though quick research would show it's 2.
26  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Oreshika: Tainted Bloodlines (Over My Dead Body 2) localization announced on: April 14, 2014, 10:22:38 PM
Changed the name to actually include the localized name: no one's called Virtue's Last Reward "Good People Die" since Aksys settled on the former.

... And man, I wasn't expecting we'd get news before it came out in Japan. Glad we're seeing it.

Made a new guy on ultros to play with a buddy, anyone still play on this server? 

I do, but probably only for a month, I wanted to get in with the PS4 launch and wrap up the story.

And ride a fat chocobo around.
28  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ys fans- I need your help on: April 12, 2014, 11:01:24 PM
Oath in Felghana and Origin are two of my favorite RPGs ever, so I would start with one of those, preferably Origin first since it is of course an origin story.

Origin is much better after Ys I & II if you can still handle playing those, it's one of those prequels meant to be seen after later events. If you can't stomach Ys I & II then sure, jump into Origin, and it's not as if Ys I & II have some deep rich story anyway (Trails in the Sky comes far closer to being that) so it's no big deal either way.

EDIT: As for which version of Ys I & II to get: assuming you're posting on a PC (age basically doesn't matter at this point) and portability isn't a top priority then get it on Steam. Runs much smoother and with a wider viewing area if you don't mind a 4:3 picture, and if you do there's a toggle to make it like the PSP version in that regard.

How do you know the Japanese dub of Conception II is any good, anyway?

I mean apparently the Japanese dub of the DDS games was /way/ worse than the English ones.

For some games it's just nicer to not actually understand what they're saying.

Atlus has gone for dual audio in the past, I just suspect it's usually a matter of how convenient it is, and they have a lower threshold possibly than other publishers. Or their choices are always the biggest pains in the ass to get dual audio into for some reason, while Atlus in Japan may well not care to work out such deals for most of their own games (and they one time they did they region locked it.)

EDIT: Wait no, there were TWO instances, but the other one, Dragon's Crown, is more like a pseudo exception rather than a proper one. But that narrator is awesome so who cares.
