The story is fairly straight forward compared to stuff like the console games (better than Sacred Stones at least), but the real meat of the game's writing is in the supports.

What exactly is the spotpass thing?

When I get this game, I want to make sure I don't miss anything due to all these newfangled concepts. O_O

It's where you get the free DLC and other WiFi based benefits.

Streetpass is the other wireless 3DS function and is what you use to beam avatars from other players as well as beaming your own avatar elsewhere.

If you've ever played DQIX, the SpotPass function would be analogous to the online shop and post game quests; whereas the trading maps, unlocking improvements to the Inn, and the feature that only really works in Japan or conventions are analogous to the 3DS's Streetpass.

From Blazing Sword, I've only seen Lyn so far. I saw Caeda from the Altea games, Eirika from Sacred Stones, Lilina from Sword of Seals, Alm and Celica from I think Holy War & Thracia 776 and..... others. Oh yeah. Ike and Elinica from the Radiant games. I think there was more but I forget who.

Lyn, Florina, Nino, Serra, Eliwood, Hector, Karel, Matthew, Jaffar, and Nergal are this round's SpotPass units. The others will show up later but you can get a sneak peak through the DLC missions (with the initial one for paid DLC Marth being set on Telys Island and involving a
showdown between the leading ladies of the earlier games versus Marth, Ike, Alm, and your guys).

(Also, Alm and Celica are both from Gaiden, either Diadora, Julia/Yuria, or both are from Holy War, and most likely Mareeta, if anybody, is repping 776 in that mission.)

Man, if it would hit shelves over here I could get my game on for the game tomorrow. Oh well, more Xenoblade then.

Also, I couldn't help but notice that westerners are getting Blazing Sword's characters (i.e. Eliwood, Hector, Lyn, etc) for the first SpotPass release.

Imageepoch did the Luminous Arc games? That explains everything.

Also, holy hell, did they waste a lot of talent.

Man. A week ago we were getting bowled over by the news of an HD remake of an excellent game, the most unlikely crossover, and a sequel to the best JRPG in recent memory, and before that we had the highly improbable localization announcement of Project X Zone, and now we've gotten confirmation of Ys IV, Grasshopper's latest, more Ys 1&2 ports, and all the rest. It's been a good week and a half for RPGamers and SRPGamers.
3606  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xseed being a tease on: January 31, 2013, 09:34:47 AM
For the uneducated: what the hell game is TiTs?

Trails in the Sky.

The original branch of the Trails in the _____ franchise which spawned from the Legend of Heroes series, which spawned from the fifth Dragon Slayer game.


Also I'm amused by the fact that somebody thought that Conception had any chance of coming over. All it had going for it was the breeding little monstrosities from your harem of dating sim archetypes. That Over My Dead Body PSP remake would've been a much better choice.

grinding for dungeoness zenny in megaman legends

I always find that the most efficient place to grind Zenny in that game was with the balloon popping gameshow minigame. Just equip something with high rapid/energy or range and clean house. You don't even need to do well to earn more Zenny than even one trip into that one substation that has a lot of enemies with high yield Zenny drops.

Thanks! It was the good ol days of space opera, surprised someone recognized it!

You're right about VC carrying on the torch, maybe throw in some Vandals into the next one! Golden Sun usually fills my Camelot/Motoi Sakuraba needs anyways.

When I see Nadesico I tend to remember that awful Prince of Darkness movie and how it doomed the series to being early to mid game filler units in SRW games.

That said, another game that I would like to see with an HD remake would be Bahamut Lagoon.

And here's the rest of the list.

Looks like the penalty for TPK in SMTIV has been reduced to burning a hole in your Macca.

So the RPGFan article mentions that there are additional DLC characters, anyone know who the DLC characters are(assuming they were originally in the game) and whether they actually get storylines or not?


It should be noted that the content that was originally intended for the Wii release that got cut is still MIA, and unlikely to return as well.

What was the last soundtrack Mitsuda did before Soul Sacrifice? I haven't heard about him in a while...

He was part of Kid Icarus, some soccer game, Play for Japan, and some other stuff.

http://vgmdb.net/artist/146 <-- disco!

He also chipped in the ending theme for Xenoblade (although that was 2&1/2 years ago).

I hope there's a jump button.  Hate that "press up" stuff.

Anyways, yay, may play through it this time then (hoping I get a Vita by then and it goes down in price)!

From what I did play though, it's a weird thing to admit than I liked the faux-Shakespeare from Odin Sphere than the legit-Japanese dialogue in Muramasa.

What!? You didn't like the 'hold the A button down' and 'D-stick' yourself all over the place?

And yes, the Ignition localization job was shoddy as hell, though I am glad I got my copy for like $8 new because of its shoddiness.
3614  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fire Emblem 3DS on: January 30, 2013, 07:20:51 AM
I'd be cursing you Cannooks but I'm sitting on a preorder for the 3DS box set and hopefully an artbook (I've been screwed over by my local GS so many times now, the only reason for the preorder was for the 3DS since I couldn't get one over the holiday shopping season), and I've already spoilered the hell out of myself last year by watching an internet playthrough and spergin' over optimal breeding strategies so I'm in no particular rush.

That said, you Cannooks can take your blizzard back.
3615  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Soul Sacrifice on: January 29, 2013, 04:51:45 PM
Character customization looks promising.....but.....

......VITA ONLY??? what the heck man......

Sony developed and they need to create an incentive to buy a Vita. It's kind of a catch 22: if you want to hit the widest audience you have to not limit the platforms to Vita, but if you want the Vita to do well you gotta have exclusives.

In the end, unless the device is MASSIVELY unappealing (probably just needs price drops on hardware and memory cards, especially after the Nexus 7) the latter should eventually make a system reasonably successful.

Or doom Soul Sacrifice to obscurity.

But at this rate I do believe that the Vita should be turning around by the end of the year. If not for Soul Sacrifice then for other version exclusives/superior ports down the line.
