So much for a solo adventure for those of us who don't want to play an MMO.

And again, who knows how they're going to handle this outside of Japan? Knowing Squeenix, I have a feeling that players in the US won't get as lucky as they did with Monster Hunter Tri.

Champions of Norrath. So now I've traded the various shades of brown, black, and red of the underground, the jumping all over the place with their 6 feet long tongues enemies, Count Bugeyedhost, and a sexy lesbian vampire for bright and sunny tropical islands, mermen, drows, and a sexy lesbian mermaid. Well, at least I can see what I'm doing when I'm not in the caves. Also the accessories FINALLY get an upgrade since the start (stacking 2 +12 Dex accessories on my Wood Elf Ranger has turned my stockpile of arrows into a goddamn hail of death for this point of the game).

It also has to do with the Wii not exactly being built with internet gaming in mind like the PS360 are. Unless Squeenix does a full, online gaming suite (ala Mario Kart Wii); which, given their effort in making use of the DSi's WPA encryption for DQIX (i.e. none), is not something I expect them to do. Besides given how DQIX was designed with Japan first and foremost with barely an afterthought given to other territories, I fully expect this game to completely fail to adjust to outside markets.

Also everybody and their brother has cracked their Wii wide open (mostly to get around that ridiculous region locking for games like Xenoblade and Fatal Frame 4). I can already see the mountains of cheaters and pirates sucking the fun out of the online experience like any other online Wii game.

And then there's the fact that Xenoblade, probably the single best console JRPG in years, has so far completely skipped over the US. And not only that game but other RPGs on Nintendo consoles have been getting skipped over as well like The Last Story and Fire Emblem DS2. The US completely missing out on DQX is too within the realm of possibility for me to get worked up for this game.

The tl;dr is the invariable mountain of Friend Codes that players are going to need to memorize, as well as phone numbers/email addresses/twitter accounts/facebook pages/ect to communicate with because DQX won't be offering much of any alternative if any at all to these things, assuming we even get it of course.

I think it has more to do with the fact that the Wii U hasn't been around that long compared to the development of the Wii version and they didn't want to scrap as much as they would've needed to in order to make use of the Wii U's capabilities.

Beyond that though, a subscription fee is understandable, but on the Wii's dinky WiFi? WTF!?

This just screams of Squeenix trying to maintain their coveted MMO position with something other than FFXIV and with new hotness over the old busted FFXI.

Picked Champions of Norrath back up. Just spent last night plowing a lava field on a tractor, hunting doohicky (a) to insert into slot (b) in said lava field, so a xenophobic wizzzzard lets me into his gaping maw, to find a little cunt and her pussies, then watch a bunch of boners fuck each other over while fucking them all over, and finally seduced a lesbian vampire with a rose like aphrodisiac.

Welp. That was a thing. Now to wait for the translated transcript or for somebody to provide the gist of it to show up.

That's the gist of it.

Also, considering how 8 and 9 sold, there's no way it won't come here.

Then again, I said that about Last Story and Xenoblade. :/

Ok. So it's both Wii and Wii U right now. But we can expect it to require an upgrade to Wii U at some point down the line. Probably with the Chains of Prometheus or Treasures of Azla expansions.


Ninja Edit: Did anybody else notice the train rolling around in the background?

This is... Well, I'll see how the dust settles, and I'd probably be there day 1 anyway, but at least it sounds more like something designed with single player fans in mind than, say, FFXI which pretty much trolled them.

Yeah, I'm not really going to be holding my breath until it's confirmed that it's coming out here in the US.

I'd still rather have Xenoblade over this tbh.

At least the not really sewing/forging/feng-shie (or however it's spelled) looks nice.

New info provided by Jump:

Code:
Noel is from the future. He's the last surviving human from his time.
Lightning continues fighting as a knight protecting a shrine of the goddess Etro in Valhalla now.

Yep, this game is dumb. This reminds me that I still have to sell my copy of XIII... I should buy a pizza with the money I can get.

;9

So not a fan of Radiant Historia or, Chrono Trigger? Because this pretty much the same basic premise. Don't see anything wrong with it.

Also this more like background info rather than spoiler since SE revealed it.

Or Dragon Ball Z for that matter. Or T2: Judgment Day. Or Time Cop. Or a bunch of other plots that involve someone coming from the future to prevent some horrible thing from happening.

It isn't armor if its just cloth.

What if it's that cotton armor the Aztec Jaguars used?

If its padded like D&D armor or enchanted like magical girl outfits, then sure, why not.

I would care if anything of interest actually had a chance to see the light of day outside of Japan.

Though I will admit that Temco Koei invoking the "ONE MILLON TOOPS!!!" meme with some of their games got a cheap chuckle out of me.

And here I thought she was going all Valkyrie Profile on us with just the armor. :/

Pay no attention to my previous post. It isn't armor if its just cloth. I am an idiot for using that as my example.

Especially when examples like this and this are far more appropriate.
3554  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: NIS America is bringing Black Rock Shooter to NA and Europe on: August 26, 2011, 03:19:25 AM
Oh goddammit! Now I have to start giving a fuck about this game.

Not that I'm ungrateful that we're getting this but I'd much rather have one of the Growlanser PSP games or Queen's Blade/Gate instead.

Well, at least it'll fulfill my 'games made with rampant lesbian overtones' quota for the year.

I guess Serah-chan has either gotten wet for her Nisan or for He-Fang.

Either way, Snow deserved to get friendzoned.

Also why should he be complaining? He's got a motorcycle made out of Lesbian Transformer Twins. Even Vanille's Autobot Vibrator doesn't compare.
