So now that I've finally exhausted my interest in Teh 3rd Birthday, I've decided to put it away and get back to some real gaming. Namely starting up some Tactics Ogre.

You know she did that on purpose.


Holy Edits Batman: And while I'm here, have another followup to the earlier Keyblade Diabloman.

What players normally see.




What the enemy sees.

I guess the statue of limitations for Sheik's identity as a spoiler is long over though -- not like the Smash games were ever discreet about it either...and the pony tail is nice!

I actuallly *love* the 3DS Princess Ruto design though.  They added those "breast fins" (_) to make it look more bikini-like than just strictly topless... Which is good, seeing are somewhat promiscuous attitude in Ocarina of Time. >:(  (I kid).
The water effect in her attack looks brilliant too (but I have a theory that Nintendo became PRO at water animating after their work for Mario Sunshine).

Darunia is the fucking MAN though.  He's a 'minor-cast' favourite (minor= <10min of screen time).  Thrilled as hell to see him....!!  And a shsme they haven't kept up "Goron nipples" as design standards

Big question now: Is a Link to the Past next??  I seriously don't think/hope we're just sticking with the big 3D titles.

Probably not. Between the DLC tipping their hand, the fact that the first games of a _____ Musou title tends to be fairly conservative with the included cast (to allow for expanding rosters for their inevitable Extreme updates and sequels), and the fact that we're coming up fast on the JP release date means that we're probably one or two major updates away from release (and that's/those are going to consist of Ganondorf and/or at least one OoT villain/monster like the King Dodongo).

Anyways, as long as Darunia still has his dorky Saria's Song dance, I'll be happy with his implementation.

Man did Darunia get screwed in the make over department (Ruto too, but that's more due to going from naked fish princess to not naked fish princess), and Shiek's disguise once again took a hit in the identity concealing department.

Tetsuya Nomura (uh huh) designed a Batman outfit for the play arts figures....  Surprising lack of belts, but it looks like Dark Knight Bahamut.


In addition to the Batman Rising: Revengeance figma, there's also Wild Wild West Batman, Steampunk Warhammer Batman, THIS IS SPARTAN Batman, and Samurguy Batman.

-Lastly, who signed off on these dragons!!!??? Dragons huh...Really...????? The text says dragon, the sprites/dragon models say something completely different if you ask me. They should have run strictly with the term "Endless" IMO. The narrative DOES make appropriate their visual distinction from typical Dragons but the term proves jarring to me none-the-less.

What Dice said and I think the term dragon is used more as the descriptor for immortal / god / force of nature in this game.

Agni Dragon also was pretty unique looking in BoF1.



To be fair, the early dragon stages usually look like your typical dragons. Its the later ones that get weird/awesome.

There's also the fact that you can carry over a small game completion bonus for the next game, which you can't do with the PSP version for obvious reasons.

It's a good thing this is already on deck for localization because Japan seems to have no use for the Nueko power hour.

It's pretty much doomed the series from hitting trilogy status though.
10  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Bravely Second on: July 23, 2014, 09:32:20 AM
For the sake of separating Bravely Second from Bravely Default and avoiding any spoilers of the first game that might pop up in the coverage of BS, I've decided to start a new thread for this game.

http://www.siliconera.com/2014/07/23/bravely-second-shows-magnolia-different-job-forms-look-agnes/

For a bunch of world saviors, the treatment of the Warriors of Light post BD seems to be rather unacceptable.
11  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Trails in the Sky FC PC release July 29th on: July 23, 2014, 09:21:15 AM
With all these primer notes on Japanese, I might as well just start importing and playing the other games in the series right now....


Anyways, baka gaijin-ness aside, it's:

Eiyuu Densetsu 6: Sora no Kiseki FC
Eiyuu Densetsu 6: Sora no Kiseki SC
Eiyuu Densetsu 6: Sora no Kiseki the Third
Eiyuu Densetsu: Zero no Kiseki
Eiyuu Densetsu: Ao no Kiseki
Eiyuu Densetsu: Sen no Kiseki
Eiyuu Densetsu: Sen no Kiseki 2
Eiyuu Densetsu: Akatsuki no Kiseki
Nayuta no Kiseki
Ys vs. Sora no Kiseki: Alternative Saga
And that Falcom Academy anime

Hey does anyone know how many unique skills I can equip per character in Breath of Fire 4? I don't want to max my list and screw myself out of the ability to learn more so I'm only keeping 4 or 5 on each character to be safe but I know the limit stated at the beginning was higher....

Already tried doing a search for the info and realized pretty quick I was gonna run into spoilers so I WILL NOT check boards/faqs for this info.

Thanks a bunch (ahead of time) for anyone who digs up the info for me!

I've seen no mention of any skill limit in this game, so I suspect that you are good to go (unless it works like in BoF3 and you can only ever have one copy of any given skill learned).

Trails in the Flash



Can we stop using that awful, nonsensical "translation" already?

And "Trails in the Zero" and "Trails in the Blue" (should be Azure) and "Nayuta in the Sky" (which is just ludicrous, though I have never seen anyone else use it.) ("Kiseki" means "trails" not "sky"!) (And "no" is closer to "of" than "in the"!)

http://www.gamefaqs.com/psp/995652-eiyuu-densetsu-zero-no-kiseki
http://www.gamefaqs.com/psp/625212-eiyuu-densetsu-ao-no-kiseki
http://www.gamefaqs.com/ps3/694913-eiyuu-densetsu-sen-no-kiseki

Well what the hell are we supposed to call these?

I'm pretty sure 'no' translates into 'the'>>>'of'>'in the'. I mean, if we really want to get technical, it should be Hero Legend: ____ the Trails.

(My bad on the Nayuta thing though. That really should be Trails in the Nayuta, rather than Nayuta in the Sky, and I think I was running off of another Siliconera mistranslation when I wrote that instead of paying attention to the actual name.)

The short answer is to start with this game.

The long answer is that the first Legend of Heroes game was the sixth mainline Dragon Slayer game (not counting sequels and spin offs of the previous mainline titles). LoH then proceeded to follow tradition and got a sequel with LoH 2 and a stand alone trilogy with LoHs 3-5 (Prophecy of the Moonlight Witch, A Tear of Vermilion and Song of the Ocean respectfully) forming what is otherwise known as the Gagharv Trilogy. Then in 2004 LoH 6 Trails in the Sky came out for the PC in Japan and in three parts. The first part (LoH6:TitS FC) is the game this thread is posting about (its only available on the PSP in the west, and this thread is about an updated version of the original PC release getting released on Steam), and the second part (LoH6:TitS SC) wraps up the story started in the first part and is what everyone who is familiar with this series is waiting for (it didn't come out for the PSP in the west due to the fact that the PSP was very much a dead system outside of Japan, hence the big effort to get both parts out on Steam now). The third and final part (LoH6:TitS The3rd) mostly reopens the setting to follow a bunch of side characters and leaves enough plot threads and setting details hanging for following up on with later games. It's from there that Trails in the Sky spun off into its own series with Trails in the Zero and Trails in the Blue (still referred to Legend of Heroes but no longer numbered as such) forming a duology, and currently Trails in the Flash which is getting its sequel, Trails in the Flash 2, in about two months in Japan. There's also Nayuta in the Sky which is largely its own separate thing, and Ys vs. Trails in the Sky: Alternative Saga which is a crossover/mashup of Ys and Trails in the characters in a fighting game (built using Ys Seven's engine) just to make things even more confusing (and because Ys and Trails in the Whatever have become Falcom's two biggest series thus far).
