3496  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Persona 3 Movie 1 on: March 27, 2013, 01:27:28 PM
http://www.siliconera.com/2013/03/27/persona-3-the-movie-1-spring-of-birth-coming-this-fall/

Now its Persona 3's turn to get an anime (movie) this time. Maybe they're working their way back towards the Persona 2 games?

And a trailer.

Requiem From The Darkness - it's about a guy who goes around collecting ghost stories and always ends up in the middle of one.

It's good and also short. Lacking a lot of the usual cliches of anime.

I really enjoyed it.

Saw it. Wasn't impressed. Kinda disliked it actually.

As I recall, it tried to use the same hip hop style elements mixed with Japanese lore and culture that Samurai Shamploo used but without the ingenuity to pull it off. Also it looked really cheaply made too.

Okay. This one just made my night. I just love that little moment where it dawns on the cat to take the other way around.

Also, despite the finger-pointing a non-trivial amount of their shortfall compared to the previous projections was due to the social gaming segment underperforming, but you don't hear anyone talking about that (well, to be fair those games cost so little to make that even they underperform in terms of revenue they're certainly still profitable).

Which is funny given how Wada was trying to shift development away from consoles and onto the emerging iOS/Browser markets. Not because there isn't at least some wisdom in looking towards mobile/On-line markets but when this and this is the kind of content you put out on those platforms you're not exactly showing any confidence in those markets either.

From what it sounds like, you will be able to change classes but not appearances.

That means that you're stuck with Hiro Protagonist and his rubber band of merry men no matter what you do.

We got a name for the dragon and some additional tidbits.

From what this link provides, I think we're jumping to the wrong conclusion about this being a remake.

What this seems to be is more of a gaiden rather than either a full blown EO5 or EO1 remake.
3504  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Should I replay FFX or wait for the remake? on: March 26, 2013, 12:19:56 PM
Since I already have a used copy of FFX-1 I'm pretty much set as far as these games are concerned (now if only I can get my PS2 back). The only thing the International version of X-1 has going for it is the more open sphere grid, going from this to this.

The international version extras used to interest me back in 2002-3 but that ship has long since sailed for far better games.

Breaking News: Yoichi Wada resigns as Square Enix CEO

"Square Enix released some really bad numbers to investors today. Wada has stepped down to "make way for management reform". Yosuke Matsuda takes up the post of CEO."

I'm surprised it took this long for the guy to get the boot. Maybe now we can look forward to something other than the dread of yet another ill conceived Squeenix compilation.

Drat DLC only.

Aside from that though, this has my interest. They're reusing the SRW Neo engine again for a brand new SRW game. Fuck yes!

Also, lol at all those Real series. Its not quite like the complete inverse of Neo's roster of nothing but Supers as far as the eye can see with the OG characters bringing the only thing that could be classified as a Real, but it still feels like a near complete inverse never the less.


Edit: Some pics

http://www.siliconera.com/2013/04/01/the-super-robot-taisen-game-with-keroro-zoids-and-gurren-lagann/


Double Edit: And a release schedule (for Japan only of course)

http://www.siliconera.com/2013/04/03/all-of-super-robot-taisen-oes-episodes-will-be-released-this-summer/


Triple Edit: FUCK YOU SILICONERA!!!!! :argh: You completely forgot to mention that motherfucking Patlabor was in this. That's new thread worthy news all on its own and I had to find out about this through RPGamer.

http://www.rpgamer.com/news/japan/mb040513.html

Holy shit. My interest in this game just skyrocketed. And even RPGamer is saying there's still other series to be announced for this.

Hey, if Nobunaga's Ambitions included catching all the Pokemon, I can't see why Atelier Warriors would be such a stretch. A crowd of moeblobs tossing Barrels! at wave after wave of unsuspecting crowds of generic faceless cannon fodder until some animorphic tree beast makes makes for your Atelier base then you have to barrel your way back in an effort to intercept said tree beast and Barrel! it to death, isn't that hard to come up with.

Either way though, the Amazon is still fucking ridiculous.

...And you genuinely feel bothered by that? Because I don't see the problem here.

Me neither, it's very different.  And the men are just as ridiculously proportioned (the Fighter's arms are like twice the width of his head, and the Dwarf is clearly 'roided out).



Ooooh noooo a girl with muscles.  I know they overdo it a bit there, but what else will happen when you swing around a giant weapon or do physically strenuous work?  If you go to a Cirque do Soleil show, you'll see some of the women have a proper six-pack.  Not sure if it's because they find it attractive (but that's besides the point), but its just something that happen as an occupational circumstance.  Quite frankly, I admire they went such a route -- who the fuck else has?  Anime-like games in general are overall just *way* too satisfied having a little 90lb girl flailing a gigantic weapon the rest of the time.
It's balanced out anyways; the Witch is meant as a 200% sex-pot (the fact you fellas are actually finding HER ridiculous is humorous almost; quite frankly it's how I've felt about the over-machismo'd Street Fighter roster for YEARS -- those guys have muscles on top of muscles), while the Elf really doesn't stand out anywhere (except featuring a bit of Chun-Li thigh).


And this is why I tried to post those pics. What I was trying to direct your attention towards was the Amazon's posture. Even trying to stand like that for more than a second is hard on a person's back, let alone walking around like that constantly, nevermind carting around a giant motherfucking pole axe. Seriously, she's two arms folded up at her sides away from assuming the T-Rex karate stance (which is built around the premiss of bullrushing your opponent and chomping their faces off; it is not a popular style), and if she placed her hands on her ass she'd look like she was trying to make the letter 'P' with her body.

Granted, I get that they're trying to emphasize the ass and thighs, but just looking at that back makes my own back ache, because seriously, that is some goddamn painful looking shit.

FFX Strategy: Sure. You can do things sub-optimally if you have the Spheres for it and aren't in any real danger.

FFX-2 Strategy: Dark Knight/Berserker, Dark Knight, Alchemist = You can be plastered to the wall and not give any fucks and still beat this game.

FFXII Strategy: Do you know programming?: >Y/>N

FFXIII Strategy: Do what we tell you or you're going nowhere.

FFXIII-2 Strategy: Find a hulk of a monster => Progress until things stop dying in under a minute => Find new hulk monster => Rinse and Repeat.

FFXIII-2 Post Game/DLC Strategy: Grind like a motherfucker with a GameFAQs guide in hand so that you don't screw yourself over completely.
