There's no stopping this train (unless it's suplexed into the ground.)

Well, here's the famous "scenario books" for reference


If Tom said FC was a pain in the ass, I'm not even thinking ANYTHING into Zero/Ao/Sen/Whatever else thereafter.

Maybe, MAAAAAYBE if FC and SC become this major JRPG super-sensation off steam we'll see the third chapter.  Falcom-diehards will say otherwise, but it isn't "necessary" to finish the main game plot... we'll be left with peculiar B-plot cliffhangers though.  And, iirc, it most definitely cuts us off to getting the haps of Zero/Ao.

Eh, if anything it's the opposite of something like Ys Origin: Shorter main story but lots of sidequests.  And it's only the main scenario that's shorter than FC.  When you include all the side content it's a bigger script (though still not as big as SC).

And Zero and Ao exceed even SC...

Oof, looking at BOTH the page counts, yeah, they'd pretty much have to go completely crazy with translating Third. I wonder if any of the Falcom diehards were REALLY saying 3 was necessary for 1 and 2, or if it was just necessary for Zero/Ao/Sen/"Sen 2"? I can see fans that don't know better thinking it absolutely has to be a trilogy and not knowing better, whereas those that actually played through the whole series know it's more an integral link between Trails in the Sky and the future non-Nayuta games.

Even FC is a heck of a lot bigger than any Tales game...

Admittedly I wouldn't be surprised if skits closed the gulf some between Tales and Trails, though it sounds like the Third has an unorthodox structure, more like Ys Origin or something. If that's the case I wonder if there's even much in the way of NPCs to talk to, I need to go see how text heavy that's supposed to be. The scenario book LOOKS to be smaller than FC's though, so if there's way fewer NPCs to talk to then it may be the most reasonable Trails game to localize. Too bad Zero and Ao seemingly go right back to SC density.

a Vita release of SC will likely arrive on a dead platform

On the one hand I feel like this is being needlessly pessimistic. On the other hand sony doesn't seem to be... acknowledging that the US even exists anymore, what with not releasing a budget-version, non-portable Vita which is ostensibly what people ACTUALLY want, instead of the real Vita, etcetcetc.

I want to wait a few months, but I do think there's a high chance they wanted to focus on the PS3 release first THEN get to Vita stuff. If so we'll probably see something happen early next year. And it may not even be Sony not caring but RETAILERS not caring, they may well be looking at that Vita model and going "no thanks, we can't even sell the ones we have now!"

Still, I wouldn't get hopes up too high. There's too many unknown factors at work here, and it does seem likely that if they want to go for a trilogy collection it'll be too late to matter, though maybe with the Third being so much smaller text-wise they could get that out relatively quickly.

You make it sound so easy!  But, iirc, Tom from XSeed said even FC was a major under-taking and it is one of the "smaller" of the latest batch of these super-plot-heavy Kiseki games. 

Really though, the series is stuck between a rock and a hard place.  It's beloved by just about all, but its fan base is only comparable to the amount of effort that needs to go in to get it released it seems.  XSeed was only so happy with how the PSP version did, so right now I think all efforts and hopes for XSeed are going into Steam right now.... which honestly, makes complete sense.

Well, it does sound like the Third is closer to FC than SC, but I think it'd be more like the average Tales localization in terms of turn around at best: get SC done, maybe see the Third in a year if FC sales are good enough to make them confident enough to go at it. Though it may not be worth it if they can't get to Zero and Ao quick enough.

That trilogy will be the thing that finally makes me use Steam. My body is ready.

I'm holding out for the PS3 versions.

It'll really piss me off if we don't get them.

I really wouldn't count on getting those.  As has been discussed it's really more of a Sony thing than an Xseed/Falcom thing...

Well, we don't know all of what's holding up PSP releases, but it has been noted that at least on PSP they have eased up on approving games, and that the real hurdle for Monster Hunter 3 Portable HD not coming here may have been the servers. It is possible that by the time it's relevant Sony will have eased up if that's a problem, and it'll help that at a minimum they can bundle Trails in the Sky FC and SC together. Two games are clearly enough for collections as Ico, Tales of Symphonia, and God of War have shown. Even trophy-less games may be OK now, the Genesis/Mega Drive version of Castle of Illusion came without them though that was a pre-order bonus.

Still, I wouldn't get hopes up too high. There's too many unknown factors at work here, and it does seem likely that if they want to go for a trilogy collection it'll be too late to matter, though maybe with the Third being so much smaller text-wise they could get that out relatively quickly.

When a games script is practically Bible-sized, I don't blame anyone for not wanting to do anything to it.

Yeah, I'm glad they're doing it but if the script were more reasonably sized someone else or XSEED themselves would've grabbed it way, way earlier than when they got a few crazy enough Falcom fans on board to push for it.
53  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Pillars of Eternity on: December 14, 2013, 10:02:30 PM
Yup, exactly what I just said. Publishers are too focused on garbing casual gamers, trying to grab as many sales as possible that perfectly viable games are denied funding.

Nah, casual games as they're commonly defined are dirt cheap to make relatively. It's these big budget AAA games that are problematic, I guess that may be what you were thinking of with casual, but I think that's more "mainstream gamer", as in targeting the average person serious enough about gaming to get consoles at a minimum, not just the people who want to have quick fun in a web browser or on the phone.
54  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Pillars of Eternity on: December 14, 2013, 09:24:16 PM
This is like the game that defies all logic. It's a game that shouldn't exist in our reality.

Given the Kickstarter I'd argue it was the publishers defying reality. Also since budgets seem to outpace industry growth that probably makes this the truth of it.
55  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy VI announced for iOS/Android on: December 04, 2013, 12:02:48 AM
Worth its own thread! Even though it's clearly not worth putting a high budget behind for SE.
56  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: December 04, 2013, 12:02:23 AM
Should've expected that with a JRPG developer!

Wait, Namco got Tales of Vesperia on 360 while Atlus was still fooling around with PS2. Well, I guess that series is in more of a MegaTen-esque state than somewhere a rung under FF/DQ.

OH GOD IT's JASHIN KOSMOS ALL OVER AGAAIN



Yeah, i didn't think it would look good.  We need one of those figure repainters people on the job.
Man Kos Man Kos...

As I've seen it nobody can say anything about this series without making things personal. And I doubt that's gonna change for XV (I would love to be wrong though).

There's a certain kind of defensive attitude towards FFXIII I swear I picked up on your posts though that goes beyond "well I loved it" and I'm generally one of those who'll defend the games themselves to an extent even if I won't defend the stories. The way Lightning Returns ends is the kind of weird thing I can like actually... but usually in shorter (maybe) works that are generally better executed all around.

Ah well, it's hearing of terrible monotonous quests that's killing this for me more than that, I always knew the story would be a trainwreck that's morbidly fascinating to watch, but unless the gameplay opinions are outliers then it's definitely one to wait on. Hell, it's timing is enough reason to wait, it's kind of a packed period.
59  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, The Last 13 Days on: December 02, 2013, 07:01:54 PM
Last few days I've been thinking that with the kind of attitude people take with this series online I can't never really talk about what's on my mind and I have to be careful with what I say given to the vocal group of people/RPG Fans/FF Fans that has practically been grumpy about the series for 6 years already (the XIII series I mean).

Probably because there's an underlying tone that we shouldn't be so critical of the games in many of these posts of yours!

I saw the big ending spoiler on Neogaf, and I hit TVtropes for random spoilers across the game.
