3616  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

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.

yikes....20 missions into an Ironman playthrough I lost my whole squad. Ohhhh Xcom

:(

You should've kept some Captains or above on back up.

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.

You think Eureka Seven is slow?  I wouldn't even consider it a slow show.

IIRC, nothing important happens for the half the episodes, at least in the first half. So a quarter of the episodes, I guess. That's still pretty bad in my opinion.

Until you rewatch the show after seeing all the big plot twists from your first run, then realize what the hell was going on in those boring/empty episodes early on. E7 is practically made for rewatching.

To be fair though, they've been doing ridiculous proportions for characters since Odin Sphere at least. Its just harder to notice on male characters than female ones (holy crap Odin, what the fuck have you been taking to get that huge and swole).

Either way though, the Amazon is still fucking ridiculous.

Look at this! Her torso looks like its attached to the loins from the wrong side.

Even her walking animation doesn't help that much. At least the Sorceress doesn't look like she's constantly trying to twist her spine into the shape of a pretzel.

Edit: Goddamn hotlinking. I really need to get myself a free image host.

Mesh's wall o' text reminded me of a few other annoying aspects of otherwise popular games.

Chrono Cross: S.S. Zebless
Legend of Mana: The gameplay.
Ocarina of Time: Poe hunting, getting Dampé to dig up that piece of heart.

So am I the only one who got Bender on his team or what?
3627  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: March 23, 2013, 11:55:05 PM
FFVII's story is really a fair bit better than it's legacy/Square's Infinite Sequel Department has treated it.

Which is, of course, the very reason why I doubt Squeenix will ever honestly remake FFVII. They'll never willingly admit to the fact that they have no fucking clue as to what went down in FFVII beyond what internet fanboys kept babbling about. Kinda like FFs IV, X, and XIII to a certain respect given the fact that FFs IV:TAYs, X-2, XIII-2, and, XIII-3 exist.


Meanwhile, in FE:A; I filled out Lissa's support list for the run (only male Avatar and the non Virion S-ranked supports remain) and I summoned Raquesis from today's Spotpass update only to have a random enemy encounter spawn in on top of her. At least this time I only needed to run to the other end of a Volcano instead of up half of an entire kingdom to save her dainty ass (I also managed to save those blasted Paladins too, too bad I didn't get a Knight's Ring for the deed (or a Princess who can promote into a Master Knight)). Unfortunately, I didn't set Eldigan to kick her ass as it would've been hilarious to have him pay her back for getting his head chopped off.

I played mine on my Slim Jim PS2, so if that's your beast then you're good to go.

Meanwhile, its so bad for Megaman right now that even not-Megaman/US Prez can stay up in the air in Japan.

Then again, if Scrooge McDuck can be revisited, then not all hope has been lost yet.

Honestly, I'm still not going to bother unless its confirmed that I won't have to keep shuffling my party around in FFX like a never-ending game of musical chairs.

I mean its nice that they let you do that on the fly, but I don't want to spend an additional 5 minutes on every battle switching between the benched party members so that they can get a share of Exp.
