The only roguelike elements they talk about are randomization and replayability.

Really? So then in other words they really are making Romancing SaGa 2 SRPG edition.

Aside from the roguelike elements this sounds like something right up my alley.

Too bad, between all the upcoming games being released this summer, garage sales, and being semi-unemployed, I haven't got a spare dime to my name. Still worth keeping an eye on though.

I would say that the LE is more for people who missed out on preordering for the CE and giving them something to compensate at least than to bleed Tales of Fans dry (but then again, this is Namdai we're talking about so there's always the chance for scuzziness).

while not technically a srw game i thought this should go here. seems banpresto is on a ps3/vita kick of late


They just announced it and already the cast list is what the hell inducing. Higurashi? What the fuck!? Di Gi Charat and Super Sonico are pretty lame as well. Dream Hunter Rem is pretty much by far and away the best series on that list. That and the male lead means that unless this has armor break mechanics used in the Queen's Blade games I'm ready to give this a pass despite the Satoshi Urushihara designed character.

Also; number of confirmed Rie Kugimiya voiced character count thus far: 3 (With a bit more discretion, this game could've been renamed Super Riekugimiya Wars or SRW for short.)

Crystal Chronicles was an *amazing* idea with poor design, if I had to say anything about it.  Plus, the plots for the DS game were just weird and sad.  The interface with the GBA was just more trouble than it was worth.

I oddly did like Chrystal Bearers for whatever-the-fuck reason.  Maybe it was the opening theme the just set a good idea. I dunno.

The sad part was that it had potential if it didn't use that silly GBA-GCN connection gimmick since the game didn't really make good use of it. A Co-op ARPG in the vein of Secret of Mana would've been a godsend back in those days, especially with the more simplified mechanics and interface versus the "I spam my stack of numbers' cheezy option against the game's stack of numbers because every other way is too slow and tedious and I liek BEEG NUMBURS :).".

That was quite the read :D
On a more serious note, what version do you actually prefer? I am curious to know after having read that incredibly amusing scenario.

So far the PSX version simply because that's the one I played through and the game is too linear and constrictive to warrant getting multiple versions. Although, the DS version was tempting due to the mechanical differences, but the DS version of FFIII kinda soured me on taking the plunge. The GBA version of FFVI was where I realized just how shallow and grindy these additions can be. And The After Years was way too expensive when it first came out and it sounded like bad fanfiction for me to consider sinking money on even afterwards. Also I still don't have a PSP to play my current PSP games on yet (although my luck may change now that Garage Sale season is in full swing) let alone getting any new PSP games to play.

The tl;dr is that I'm tired and burnt out on Squeenix's neverending parade of bullshit and them trying to milk my youth of every cent its worth, so I'm more or less sitting on the sidelines, commentating on bullshit, and poking fun at them because that's probably the most entertainment I'm getting from them these days.

Boy, they sure want our money. That's pretty scuzzy there Namdai (but not unexpected).

Thankfully, I give zero fucks about the DLC (Awakening got me to buy theirs so it has to be at least that good if not better for me to sink $ on). I'll bet the difference in Music CDs will be all of one song. And besides, the art book sounds better than the character profile book and that's probably what counts the most.

It's been so long since the Code Geass 1/2 fiasco I'm not sure if I remember it right.

************ warning, memory may be faulty ************

The original Code Geass was one season only. At some point they asked that the whole show be changed to fit a second season. Everyone got pissed, but did it because they were forced to. The director quit right after and the original ending was never disclosed.

Spoiler Alert: [code geass]This is how every anime that has an unplanned sequel goes. Giant Robot anime in particular are susceptible to this practice.[/code geass]

Anyone else more impressed with FFIV DS than the enhanced PSP version??
Not to shit all over sprite work, but at least more effort felt like it went into one than the other.

I personally really dislike the ds version. I think the chibi style of character designs dont fit the game at all. The voice acting isnt bad but it is ridiculous in my head to have that serious voice acting with that kind of character artwork! The game also looks a little rough on the ds.

I think the gameplay tweeks are cool but that's where the positives end. Besides FF IV complete collection has the after years and the interlude included, although I dont really like the after years it is still a nice addition.

It would be nice to see a proper remake with awesome 3d graphics instead of chibi style graphics.


And while they're at it, maybe they should give alternate costumes a go too. Why wait for Mt. Ordeals to switch into Paladin Cecil, or maybe dress Rosa up like 3rd Birthday's Aya, perhaps Yang should look like Snow now, make Rydia a child again after she rejoins you in the underworld, make everyone look like Edward, Palom and Porom can now look like Moogles, and Golbez now sports an extra wing and pretty bishonen face and hair. And any one of these things can be yours for the low low price of $3.98 a pop.

And if that's not enough, lets throw in an extra bonus dungeon where you need to be level 99, have everyone who is able equip Adamatium armor wearing them, have all of the previous extra bonus dungeon weapons, made sure to farm enough collectables to raise your levels properly over the course of the entire game, sperg over every fucking useless detail, just to make it through the doorway. The dungeon itself consists of a single room made from preexisting assets repeated over and over again and filled to the brim with romhacked eneimes with core stats over 150 and HP in the billions. The final boss will be Gilgamesh with a crappy remix of Battle on Big Bridge blaring in the background (and the pack will cost you $9.98).

But wait, there's more. If you act now, you can obtain the brand new scenario FFIV: The Wonder Years. Taking place between the original game and TAYs (and conveniently ignoring the Intermission), you play as Cecil's previously unmentioned younger teenaged brother Licec as he travels the world to become the world's greatest Dark Knight. His quest will be joined Leda, a spunky female mage with attitude who is secretly a Lunarian witch/princess, Dic, a gruff martial artist, and Hallet, Tellah's previously unmentioned younger brother. There quest will be joined by returning character Palom and monsters who's hearts you have collected and summoned from. You'll be fighting against a secret crime syndicate with branches and operations all over the world and headquartered in Baron and run by an oppressive dominatrix villainess seeking to capture the monster hearts and the Lunarian princess and use them to summon the ultimate evil who happens to be Chaos who's looking to bring in all the final bosses of previous FF games together to wage war on what's her face in a Crisis on Infinite FFs style crossover and the real villain Dlouc has been gathering all the crystals from the first game needed to open the summoning circle but it turns out that Dlouc is actually the Lunar Whale's evil twin and is only going through with this because he was abandoned by his brother and the rest of the Lunarians so after he is defeated Leda teleports him to the Lunarian moon currently in orbit around the world and everyone lives happily ever after (each chapter (there are 10 chapters total) will cost $14.98 a pop (and as a bonus each DLC will net you a free card for Squeenix's latest browser based CCG that's based entirely around FFIV, be considered to be another official sequel, and the cards will mostly consist of Rosa and Rydia cards drawn by various hentai artists and random monsters/summons/items)).

Edit: Pardon the sperg, I just like coming up with bullshit conspiracy theories.

So apparently Japan really likes this game. Can't wait.

I'd be piss happy if they made another side-scroller Castlevania.
Or Suikoden....but uh, yeah.

We'll be lucky if they talk about anything other than social media games and MGSV.

Honestly, we're wasting our time on this thread. This is just going to be another sterile prerecorded video with, at best, another Mega64 sketch to break up the monotony of the non-announcements and the non-games. Anything Konami has going for it will be displayed by at least one other presentation before the end and likely more thoroughly as well.

Loli-goth and JAPAN!!! Those are the only reasons you could ever need.

Been rewatching Code Geass myself. Watching the dub this time since I might as well mix it up. Been a few years but I still have the same problems I've had with the show as the first time I watched it. When it's good, it's really good, and when it's bad, it's really fucking bad.

I'm sort of curious, what are the parts that people consider to be "good"

Seriously, Lulu being the scene gobbling ham that he was is half the reason why I watched the show (the other half consisting of watching him nearly getting hoisted by his own petard before bullshitting his way out of it or failing spectacularly and watching him slink away while the fireworks fly) and what kept me watching even during the dumbass school episodes, anytime the Geass plot showed up in the second season, the China arc, and afterwords when everybody and their brother started getting midseason upgrades out the ass every episode.

In short, it's a lot like Death Note where you were watching it more for Kira's antics and crazy circuitous schemes than for anything else.

Fallout - it's already destroyed.

How is FF VI *not* about defeating an insane all-powerful being to restore hope to the world and release its denizens from fear?  I'm pretty sure that counts as saving. 

Yeah but you don't save the world, it gets destroyed half way through!

But then you go and save the remnants of the destroyed world. It doesn't count.
