needs to come back in the first scene half cyborg and Noel needs to slice him up XD

I'm suddenly having flashbacks of 2004/5's FMA's "The Archinator" who after getting half his body sucked up in a transmutation comes back as a completely ridiculous and non-threatening half cyborg who spends the rest of the anime getting jobbed by a version elevated side character and a version nerfed major character.

Fake Edit: Of course I am an idiot and forget that this is a reference to an anime but not the one I mentioned above. In penance, I suggest that the guy in the spoiler tags brings his daddy along to get curbstomped alongside him. Also Fang should be running around in yellow pants and a pink shirt with the words Bad Man printed on the back.

and then Vanille dumps Hope and starts dating Fang. Later it's revealed that Noel is Vanille and Fang's (adopted) child and Lightnings gonna die from incurable disease in the future.

Of course it can only end with Lightning diking it out with the big bad until Lightning throws in the towel and/or dies letting Serah-chan take over in defeating the big bad and thus succeeding her as champion of wherever they are, while Noel goes back to the future to trash the versions of the big bad that's trashing his future; thus concluding the FFXIII saga (unless of course Squeenix revisits FFXIII again where it's seven years in the future, Serah-chan has enrolled in highschool while moonlighting as a costumed superhero when Lightning suddenly comes back to life for the day to participate in a tourney that gets horribly derailed by the minions of an evil wizard seeking to revive an ancient evil created by the evil wizard's evil ancestor).

At least we can look forward to Lightning and Snow both trying desperately and failing miserably at getting their driver's licenses, and in the case of an FFXIII-3; Lightning and Fang joining together to be transformed by the villain of the hour into the galaxy's most powerful chocolate flavored jawbreaker and then proceed to curb-stomp said villain of the hour.

My problem with the game is that its all over the place (for every Dead Sea or Chronopolios there's annoying environmental messages with the Blue Dragon Isle, Hydra Marshes, and anything having to do with Marblue and meandering plot points that don't really serve any purpose like anything having to do with Lynx and SS Zebless), a wasted opportunity for alternate dimensions shenanigans, that its slow as fuck (though the NG+ Fast Forward feature helps alleviate that a bit), and that the plot is either just there or is an incomprehensible mess.

That said its still one of the most gorgeous looking PSX games ever made, its good points (Dead Sea, Chronopolios) are really good, and the music track (not including the basic battle theme or SS Zebless's theme) are also really good.

more proof that xseed is cool

I didn't need any more evidence of that.

I do think XSEED is my favorite niche publisher now. Sorry Atlus

Fixed. This makes me happy.

To be frank I find it somewhat baffling to consider NISA your favorite anyway. Enough stupid translation mess ups and outright stupid decisions like not localizing the new part of Rhapsody for the DS version and failing to catch a critical, reliably tripped bug in AT2, I guess you just have to really like their selection. The other part of why it's hard for me to understand admittedly, only a few titles from NISA are ones I really want, and no where near the degree of the best of Atlus titles or a good chunk of Xseed's output.

True but given how these days Atlus only really localizes like three or so titles beyond any SMT or Persona games they crank out. Anyone with burnout on Persona Spam hasn't even a handful of titles to look forward to whereas NISA at least has the potential to pull some kind of surprise out of their asses even if it ends up as some shoddily localized mess. For instance I could see either XSeed or NISA localize Over My Dead Body or whatever it might end up being called long before Atlus gets around to it.

That said, if NISA was going to surprise us with such a game they'd only get around to it after localizing all the Hyper Dimensional Neptunia's and the like.

So I guess Square Enix wants to apologize to their fans for "trolling" :P



From ESRB.

Now there's the Squeenix we all know and loathe. Chrono Cross is nice at least, but FFO is a joke (well it's version of FFI wasn't completely nerfed yet so I guess it has that going over the other half a dozen FFI+II ports out there).

NOEL

It was previously revealed that new main character Noel is from the future where he somehow managed to become the last remaining human. According to Famitsu, he's having some memory problems due to a time paradox.


Noel! What have you done!? You've created a Time Paradox!!! Oh hai there Trunks.

They should like, put Einhänder on PSN at the same price of Vagrant Story instead of putting the the 5th (or whatever) version of these games on another system.

Just sayin'.

Gotta agree. These are versions hampered with awful load times, and there are vastly superior ports for both console (VC) and handheld (GBA and DS), only argument to be made is there's less cropping than either version would have on the Nintendo systems and in the case of FFVI I THINK the PS1 version has better sound than the GBA one.

However, there's still a treasure trove of SE games to bring out, whether it's the none-RPG spin-offs or stuff like SaGa Frontier that has a small but dedicated fanbase. At the least stuff like Einhander and Bushido Blade should be made available again.

ALL versions of FFVI have better sound than the GBA one (save the GBA one of course :downsrims:).

Final Fantasy V on the 3DS with a team of (what would appear to be) four lolis and a flying fairy? Sign me up.

Two or three of them are undoubtedly not going to be the right gender to be "lolis". Even if it were three female characters the person you see in the in-game screenshots is definitely a guy.

Though that's not to say that one of them wouldn't turn out to be a girl all along and the other might die off and get replaced by his loli granddaughter.

I think Aeolus is playing... there was a thread about "which is better, Naruto or Bleach" and someone named Aeolus replied "Berserk."  Not sure if Aeolus is a popular anime character or what.

As humorous as that reply is, I unfortunately can't claim credit for it. Hell, I don't even have a PS3. (And besides, I'd probably say FMA before Berserk on the grounds that FMA's actually finished and I don't need to wait for forever for each chapter.)

The name Aeolus is based on a Greek mythological deity who's notoriety I forget at the moment. The reason why I chose that as my new user name was mostly due to the similarities to his name and the name of the sidekick from that cheese ball 90's live action Hercules show, and partly due to it being Megaman Zero's Harpura's non localized name (which is too bothersome to actually look up the correct spelling of).

Quick Chrono Question then.... do Magic Tabs even matter for Rob and Ayla?

Doing the sidequest onslaught and loving it.  Magus has "subbed in" for Chrono a bit.  He's got a gold stud-- nuff said.

Given that Robo's magic is designed to be somewhat comparable to everyone else's magic despite his abysmal Magic stat; it stands to reason that cranking it up to max would make his already naturally powerful magic monstrous.

Ayla less so.

Also if you can bear with it, you never need to give Robo even one Speed Tab since completing his special sidequest near the end of the game gives him a stat boost to Speed and M. Def.

Now there's the Squeenix we all know and loathe.

If it can take them 3 years before they put up anything for the VC never mind the 5 years it took for them to get around to putting CT/FFVI up on the VC then of course they aren't just going to put those two up on the PSN anytime soon never mind together.

Well compared to VII's Knights of the Round all of the rewards offered by X's minigames were pieces of shit, so it's understandable why the Chocobo Breeding wasn't all that bad compared to the shit pulled in X. And really it was the only massively tedious side quest of the game; I just wish you could start on it earlier than the second disk where there isn't as much plot going on.

Besides, it's not like I really have a right to complain about tedious shit in FFVII as someone who used Aerith's final limit break (once) without cheating for it.

Still think Triple Triad was the best of the lot though.
3495  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Suikoden Topic on: September 20, 2011, 12:52:44 AM
I wish tri-Ace could do something as good as Radiata again... it's been a while that all they've done is crap that disappoints me =/
(although I guess Resonance of Fate is debatable.)

I'd argue that Resonance of Fate was the better game despite the fact that both games are one-trick ponies because RoF was ridiculous as hell and it knew it.
