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.

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.


(E:F;B)

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.

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.

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.

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.

I think I've played the opening ten hours of FF9 six or seven times.  The beginning of this game is exactly what I want from my RPGs: high adventure, great characters, cool scenarios, and a sense of depth to the narrative.  Unfortunately, I think the game really meanders around at times.  Not going into specifics, but there are parts of the game that I can't even remember because they felt like filler, and it wouldn't be a FF if the story didn't completely fly off the rails in the last few hours (though Stephen tends to disagree with me here).  It's still an awesome game, however, and even with a few disposable characters, FF9 has perhaps the most lovable cast of misfits this side of 6. 

I've come to expect JRPG's to get completely ridiculous at the end.  I wonder why it consistently happens.  Some sort of syndrome where the designer thinks they need to "Go Big or Go Home".  It's kind of annoying.  Especially after a long rpg that has taken great care with its plot lines.

Powercreep mostly. You aren't some world savoir, walking demi-fiend/god, or some other kind of legendary hero if the only thing you fight are bandits or the occasional stray woodland creature.

I played the JP demo before.  I don't know, the game looks pretty cool and all but I don't think it's for me.  Looks very multiplayer-centric, sort of Monster Hunter-esque in structure but faster paced and with some pretty over-the-top attacks.  Yeah everyone is a mage in this game but they don't feel or play anything like your usual fantasy mages (which I'm fine with).  A lot of the spells are for use in melee.

Yeah, it's kinda hard to explode a schmuck into spiky ball of flesh, bone, and death or to pick up the spoils from the battle you just won by ripping your own spine out and using it to beat a foe to death with before keeling over yourself due to a sudden yet noticeable lack of a spine when you fly solo.


Also, for those who might not have noticed yet, this game is :gibs: incarnate.
