Wasn't that an old urban legend?


Fuckruckers.

Bamp.

Great, its just a GREE social game that doesn't even sound wholly new but more like a 2nd Another Day.

:sigh:

If its anything like other OG games then they'll probably dedicate an arc to it like they're going to probably do with every other new game's plot before turning the whole thing into a massive clusterfuck of villains, upgrades, and plots.

Also, you'd have an easier time counting the systems that DON'T have a Ys game on it.

That's like every handheld up to the GBA then all bets are off.

Great, now they just need some actors that have hit puberty to fill the roles and....oh. :(

On the plus side, Star Wars characters for KH3.

If this means that I can beat NSMBU in under 14 stages then we will finally have a worthy successor to SMW.

And the other modes are nifty too, I guess.

Oh hell yes!

Here's hoping they do the sensible thing and reduce the amount of grinding it takes to learn abilities (and give Melvin and Aria a better skill set load out when they join you instead of just giving Aria mastery over the quickest and easiest class to master in the game and five levels in the fairly quick to master category and jack squat to Melvin).

Edit: Also make it so you can't permanently screw yourself out of lithograph shards by missing a treasure chest in a cave you only get to visit once during the first disk or something to that effect.

Double Edit: And here's hoping they speed up the opening sequence so that it doesn't take an hour before you have the opportunity to get into your first fight.

Triple Edit: And maybe making Dharma Shrine/Alltrades Abbey accessible a little bit earlier than a full third of the way through the game.

Final Edit, I Swear: And let the unfortunate sap(s? looks like they're adding another party member to this which would help in the awkwardness of only having five teammates in a four man battle party) stuck on the bench get at least some job experience rather than forcing me to abandon Maribel because Aria caught up in class levels and either my MC or Gabo have surpassed her in the magic department thus making her entirely redundant.

As somebody with no art talent he amazed me by being able to make things looks so good by doing so little. 'You just did 4 quick brush strokes, WHY IS THAT A BEAUTIFUL TREE?!' and why is it so happy?

 And I can't believe the guy who made Mr Rogers look stressed and angry was a drill sergeant.

Which is even more incredible once you knew that Mr. Rogers was a former sniper.

So yes, Blondie (and so far only Blondie) gets a costume out of this.

Also if this game is supposed to be on PCs then where's the porn? It's basically a rule at this point in Japan's Gaming Industry to only ever release pornographic and indie games (which tend to have pornographic elements to them anyways) on PCs.

On the other hand it could mean a Cybuster/Valsione upgrade (or at least open up the Prana option for them).

Of course you can't really have The Lord of Elemental without Shu and last I checked he kind of died during OG1 (not like this ever stopped alternate versions from taking over the bad guy spot).

One complaint I heard about Partner's in Time was with the writing. Without having played it, I do wonder if there might've been translation issues.

With regards to Legend of Mana -- in my own life, it's an interesting thing to notice, the way my perception of reality and time gets more fluid as I lose track of the personal effects and artifacts I'd hung my memories around (and vice versa).

Unfortunately, it's not translation issues. PIT was built around the idea of having two sets of Mario Bros. which, while goofy, didn't really lend itself to a strong characterization or gameplay diversity. Moreover PIT's plot was mostly a rehash of the first M&L game's but with more focus on alien invasion tropes rather than on particular characters like Fawful or Bowser.

So I happened to catch the New The Munsters last night and it was pretty ehh. Not that having the sitcom version of the Addams Family is all that hard to do but it'd help if all the actors weren't so milquetoast. And with the overly gratuitous use of the special effects it felt more like some kind of re-imagining like Battlestar Glactica was, and so for the remainder of what I watched I kept expecting the family to shamble off to solve a crime or something.

I'll be surprised if this makes it through an entire season before getting the can or getting passed off to a better network.

That one episode cost $10 million.  And they decided not to do a series.  What a waste.

Wait. Really? Goddamn they REALLY went overboard on the special defects.

Also looks like I finally have something that can join The Incredible Crash Dummies on my 'one episode pilots failing to make it to series status that I've actually managed to catch in broadcast' list.

Took a break from modding Phantasy Star 2 to actually play games. Bowser's Inside Story is very charming.

So are you designing dungeons for it that don't completely suck or are you just lowering the encounter rate to more sane levels?
