Atlus is working hard on the next Persona -- NeoGAF

Please be excited.

Not surprised given how they currently have an entire studio working on nothing but Persona.

I liked their ambition, but I think I'd end up skipping a lot of their games now, if they were new, if they had kept the same style of localisation.

Their humour was forced and shitty, and I cringed at it back in the day. I can't imagine people not ripping it apart now.

I think they did a great job with the localization of Growlanser Generations (II & III).  I never played any other WD games, but I've heard they made a lot of pop culture references.  However, I don't remember them adding any really obvious ones in the Growlanser games; perhaps they avoided it because the subject matter is so serious (lands being torn apart by war). 

Still didn't keep them from having some of the principle female party members talk like valley girls since they've always got to have one of those in every game they localize.

Dude's the squat thrust king (or queen in this case).

LoZ:TP: The opening.

FFVI: The GBA dungeons.

Tri-Ace games: The moment where you finish abusing the game breaking exploit and realize that you put far far too much effort into something that isn't going to matter in the face of all those upcoming unwinnable boss fights, and far far too little effort in getting ready for the bonus dungeons.

FFT: Anytime I trigger a random encounter on the Falls and a Red Chocobo or two are present. Stealing from Elmdor.

Dragon Quest II: Sailing, The Road to Rhone, Rhone.

Dragon Quest VII: The opening, Dharma Temple, Gracos, the grinding for monster hearts.

The rest I haven't played.

This thread sums up my thoughts on what Working Designs would be like in today's environment.

I'm replaying FF7, currently in Don Corneo's sex dungeon. Something tells me it's scenes like this that stops them doing a remake of FF7 in modern graphics.

Crotch Physics.

That, and they would probably need to rewrite the game, given how they've been rewriting it ever since.

Either way though: FE:Awakening. I done fucked up. When I promoted Lissa back when she was first coming out of Cleric I took her down the War Cleric class instead of the Sage class. Then when I capped that I realized I needed to pass something female exclusive down so I made her into a Valkyrie, then I realized that she has access to the Peg Knight line so I take her up that all the way to Dark Flyer. Now with a son I reclass her back down to her only prepromote class remaining, Troubadour. But Troubadour can only promote into War Cleric or Valkyrie and I can't reclass her to either Sage or Falcon Knight without either switching over to a new prepromoted class, taking her back up to promoted class level 10, or wait a week for the Bride's Bouquet to fall into my lap then burn it on her instead of somebody more needy. I chose to take on War Cleric again since Axe Cleric and the fact that leveling up gets her stats again.

I've been wondering for a long time how is Snow doing after all the stuff that happened at the end of XIII-2...

You know with Serah death and all that.

He's probably still lost in space (and time) and meandering about on his time traveling lesbian twin transformer hovering ice motorcycle.

Of course he's still going to show up in this game for the sake of setting off that dramabomb.

Dual Postin' Double Duel style as I managed to check out the Dual Duels that have been released so far and I've got to say, the prizes they give mostly suck. Granted, I'm one to talk given my handy dandy Silver Card and half a dozen peeps with the Despoil skill learned and equipped. But still, taking on Tharja's lot with my post game team and having Noire lose her ability to double, having iffy hit rates, and getting smacked around by Sorcerers armed with Forseti even when she's equipped with a Superior Jolt tome and has both the Tomebreaker, Prescience, and Skill +2 skills equipped along with capped Skill and Speed as a Dark Flyer for just a Seed of Trust is ridiculous (and Gaius's team handed over a Recover staff despite being the same difficulty level as Tharja's). And yes, the later Double Duels are no joke. Fortunately, you do not burn weapon uses or permanently lose anybody during battle, but you also can't change your equipment or skills without having to back out of the feature entirely. Also some skills wont work as well (namely ones that involve placement).

This also means that the Hauteclere that I got during the Regalia DLC now has a second copy. Also, I wound up missing Owain's Missletainn during his recruitment Paralogue since I didn't have him talk to everybody (just the Sage to the north). The only way to get a replacement now is to obtain it from the Regalia DLC.

You guys might want to watch out for that as his, Laurent's, and Morgan's Paralogue chapters all contain rare items that are difficult to obtain elsewhere, if at all. Owain's item Missiletainn is a decent but not impressive sword that only Owain can wield, is as strong as a Steel Sword with an additional +10 to Crit, and boosts his skill by +1, Laurent's item is the Goddess Staff which is this game Saint's/Latona/Ashera/Matrona Staff (full heal to all in range), and Morgan's is Naga's Tear which is essentially every permanent stat booster all rolled into one item (sans The Boots of course).

Could this be? The stolen treasure?

Quality dialogue, there. Or translation.

I think you're missing 'it'.

Somebody off screen was probably looking for 'it'.

But they couldn't find 'it'.

Now if only they could tell us what 'it' is.

And goddamn does Lightning have some ridiculous outfits going into this one.

Also dune grinding? She has ridden the sand rails of Dune! Too bad Squeenix isn't clever/shameless enough to have Lightning shout her enemies to death.

And now, a brief look at the actual gameplay.



Hyrule Field confirmed.

Double Edit:


And more characters to the pile. We'll have a full classroom yet.
3642  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Neptunia and Vita on: March 18, 2013, 03:21:13 AM
I imagine it's entirely our fault. For some godforsaken reason, the Neptunia games have a very, VERY passionate following.

Hey man. Don't drag me into this. I've all but ignored this series completely and it still hasn't gone away.
3643  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What's your criteria when choosing a starter Pokemon? on: March 18, 2013, 03:19:35 AM
I think there was some descriptions floating around implying we're getting Water/Fighting and Fire/Psychic, and people logically extended that to assume we'll get Grass/Dark.

Water Fighting would be a pretty swell choice as long as Gen 6 doesn't pull a Gen 4 and leave ALL of its Fire types til post game (save for the Fire Starter and Ponyta). But I wont assume anything on starters since people assumed that Gen 5's Fire Starter was going to end up with a Fire Dark pokemon since it looked like Ganon and 'why would GameFreak make a third Fire Fighting starter in a row?'.

Also, anyone ever heard of Attack on Titan?? It's becoming an anime too soon... I dunno, this series sounds like it warrants a checking-out. :D

Hey, I pointed out that show when the lineup for the Spring was first announced.  Believe I called it something like a "must see".  But nobody ever listens to me...if you did you would be watching Blast of Tempest by now ;)

Haha, sorry Kev, posts go pretty quick on this part, and I guess I'm so used to seeing such typical run-of-the-mill "average high school student" shows that I have trouble listening to an anime recommendation.  I'll keep an eye out for more of yours, I think you're a cool feller on the forums anyhow. 

To be fair, I'm more familiar with the other translation of the title Advance of the Giants.

That said, I've been enjoying the first two episodes of Girls und Panzer as of late.
3645  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What's your criteria when choosing a starter Pokemon? on: March 17, 2013, 11:57:12 PM
I typically go with the Fire type.

The Grass ones typically has too many issues and Water types are a dime a dozen.

Now if only I knew if Gen 6's Fire Starter evolved into a Fire Fighting type or not because that's been done to death.
