While Growlanser wasn't a victim of this (it dressed its characters like hookers and pimps for a while now)

Seems more like a CareerSoft problem. It was there to an extent in Langrisser, and even without that name and a new character designer they have anti-grav breasts in Devil Survivor.

Langrisser was worst in that regard, DS breasts was too much even for a oppai lover like me.

You know, the breasts in Langrisser didn't bother me nearly as much as those ridiculous shoulder pads. Especially when they comprise of 80% of the character's outfit and make me question what doorways would look like to accommodate them.

Futurama Trip Report: Episode Se7en. Even for a Futurama episode the plot was out there. Still, the Frydog was great as well as using the escape pod to bail out on Leela's memory possibly returning.

I'm surprised he didn't make a joke about wanting to boot the fairy out of the far more valuable bottle.

But what if I died?

You have White Magic of your own don't you? You can take care of yourself.

But fine, if you insist you can keep your stinkin' fairy. Just keep in mind that the next time you need to bring a fish with you to open up the next dungeon that I told you so.

The team finds a con artist peddling a faerie. Parn is fascinated by faeries. It comes in a bottle. Eusis spends most of his time during the traversal between the caravan and the next town tormenting the creature, screaming "HEY LISTEN" to it when it least suspects.

I LOL'd at this. Hard.

There are breasts in Devil Survivor? I thought it was a bunch of dudes hot-gluing various fruit onto their chests, wearing skirts, and pretending to be mostly useless.

I got "mad" at the SMT games I was playing (more like not feeling like fucking around, trying to create new teams, etc.) so I started up a new game of Pokemon White. The first time I played, I chose the fire starter, which made the first four gyms fairly simple. This time, I chose the water starter and I have actually needed to train the other pokemon so far. I'm also trying to use a different team than the first time I played to avoid de ja vu. Anyway, I'm still leveling up some Pokemon before I take on the fourth gym leader.

I don't usually play pokemon games, but when I do, I prefer fire-type starters. Stay Poke my friends.

It's Ys by the way, not Y's, and admittedly they did a better job than with Lufia's remake. At least Adol's outfit looks like it COULD pass as a variant of what you'd expect in that setting, not something utterly different. I'll miss the traditional armor though.

God, I can't really decide if I hate the character designs of that Lufia remake more than I hate the character designs for the most recent Fire Emblem. Actually I probably do since at least there aren't any other versions of the FE characters that makes you go WTFMate (DLC aside, poor Mickey and Ike). Although I guess I don't mind Selena's design too much, but did they really have to go make Lexis into Doc Brown (you could practically hear Marty Mcfly in Maxim's dialog)?

I adore the art style for these games... this one in particular.... really reminds of lodoss/slayers era fantasy stuff even more so than Y's titles do (even though this came waaay after the fact....)

Not helping matters is that Ys character designs now look like this.
3491  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Suikoden games (opinion thread) on: August 02, 2012, 12:21:10 AM
Why must you keep bumping Suikoden topics?

Also I disliked the war battles mechanic in Suki III due to the fact that it still boiled down to random chance determining whether you won or lost somebody, except now with tons of mandatory grinding as well.

Also also, I didn't like IV because it requires Tactics to be anywhere near the level of the other games. On its own it was a rushed, halfassed, piece of crap with an ocean that can die in a fire.
3492  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Konami: The Suikoden Team Has Been Disbanded, We Have Lost Our RPG Know-How on: August 01, 2012, 10:53:51 PM
Well, it seems the ''Suikoden Team Disbanded'' news was a half truth, at best.

Since then we have a new Suikoden. And while the development team behind this may have consitsted of some new faces, it seems far more likely that many familiar faces where taken from their various other fields within Konami to help with this games development, also.

Bearing this in mind, we have to remember that there was never really a Suikoden team to begin with. Apart from the very first Suikoden. The original team was then expanded to make SII. And then expanded again to make SIII. Some of those staff members left during SIII and the guys who had been working on the Suikogaidens then joined the main development team.

So, you see, there never really was a concrete ''Suikoden Team''. I would call the team responsible for the first three games ''the Suikoden team''. But even they seemed to change so much in a short space of time.

Suikoden IV seems like an almost entirely new team based on how different the game itself is (also bearing in mind Murayama and co did not work on this game). And then the Suikoden V team was, again, even different from the SIV team.

I think people made a mountain of a molehill here. The comments made during that interview were not intended to be taken that way.

So have you actually played that new Suikoden?

Besides, the point was that nobody who worked on any of the first three games are around anymore nor are there any successors to those people. The original story was Konami saying that the series got farmed out to a third party developer to make a generic RPG with a short bullet point list of elements needed for them to consider it a Suikoden game (i.e. have 108 recruitable characters, set it in a fantasy styled setting, ect...).

It'd be like Capcom calling up, lets say Ninja Theory, to make the next Megaman game. Even if it happened, it's not going to be pretty.

I'll withhold comment until a credible source picks this up (and not just sites Kotaku like a bunch of lazy fucks).
3494  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time hits PSP / PSN on July 31st! on: August 01, 2012, 07:13:45 PM
Agreed with Eusis. Though I would say there are very, very few games where I would say huge breasts and/or skimpy clothing is appropriate (either parodies or other select games that usually aren't serious in tone). Enjoyable to look at? Mostly. But I don't play games for that. If I want to see that, I can choose other forms of media. Plus, I've seen so much of it over the years it's more of a "not this again" response.

I'll admit, character designs are an influence for me when I'm looking for a game. However, I will state that it's usually a minor influence at best. If the game's good enough, I'll get the game even if I don't care for the overall character designs. Other times, I've passed by games even if I actually liked the character designs since I know enough to know that JRPGs usually never do anything to their characters anyway (they'll wear the same outfits they wore when they trudged through the inevitable sewer dungeon at the start of the game all the way through to the end and never change or wash them). But never the less it is something I do look for in a game even if it is meaningless to do so.

A turn-based real-time game.

GOTTA SEE THAT ONE!

Growlanser series own that tittle.

I spy with my little eye, what you did there.
