Hope it's for real and not affected by the recent upheaval at SE. It'd figure if after a few years they're set to FINALLY release another traditional RPG like I used to rely on them for... only for it to be swept away because Wada bet poorly on XIV and Eidos.

Pretty sure Eidos has been a fair bit more profitable than FFXIV for them... :P

Try telling that to Squeenix's upper management. :(

Apparently this is going to be a sequel to Ayesha.

Here's what I did.

Phantasy Stars 1-3: Borrowed my sibling's GBA collection cart for about a summer.

Phantasy Star 4: Tracked down a physical cart from a used game store so that I had something for the Genesis I needed to hook my SegaCD up to.

Shining Force 1: Wii's Virtual Console from the only sale that service ever saw.

So sorry, I can't actually help you in regards to Sega Retro Game Collections beyond the GBA PS one.

Need more incentive to see Heathers?  It's the best Winona Ryder's ever looked... and that's saying a lot because she's always looked smokin' in movies and she still looks hot.

I stopped giving any fucks about Winona Ryder ever since Alien Resurrection.

Seems like Red Data Girl is really aimed at girls.
The opening is tons of guys with colors and hugs.
The main girl is shy, weak and psychologically and physically harassed + they force a jerk next to her. (20$ she falls in love with the jerk eventually)

I don't think I can watch more of this...

B-but, it was designed to hit ALL the demographics!

I like 7 and 8 more than the ACTUAL classic Mega Mans :T


Grow2 - Back in Burstein, headin' back to Rolandia, got like 8 of the manuscripts.

Mask of the Sun - About to talk to the Sage.

FFMQ - While I totally agree that the game is flawed, I don't think it's necessarily any more flawed/flawed differently than most 16-bit era jerpegs.

MM8 was way too gimmicky for my tastes (and Astro Man's stage was bullshit) and MM7 felt way too much like the Gameboy games (which just seemed goofy given how it was on the SuperNES). At least they're both far and away superior to MM&Bass.

Anyways, I've blitzed through the second R&R DLC mission in Awakening in one go. Helped that my standbys were actually promoted this time (and I may have brought a few extra toys along for the ride like Amatsu and Sol Katti). Placement helped a bunch too given that you don't start off surrounded and need to dick around with keeping the NPC assholes from stealing kills or clogging the choke points, and you can actually spend a turn letting the enemy try to funnel out of the narrow passageways while you sit on the other end and chew through them or force them into your effective range. Also helping things was my actually paying attention to skill load-outs using my skill load-out viewing skills (because breaker skills are a bad surprise).

As for naming, while its not new, I did happen to notice that Awakening's localization of Narrave's name is, well Narrave instead of Shadow Dragon's localization choice of Nabral. Also Altenna's new name ended up being Altena. I only got convos out of Lucina and Arvis and Yarne and Zephiel and no battle chats this time.

Yeaaah b-b-b-but now we got INTERCHANGING GENDERS.  A GUY WITH A FEM-PERSO.... MENTAL INSIDE NOBODY DOLL (still the funniest abbreviation, maybe even better than Breath of Fire V's "SOL" system).

Still not as ridiculous as My-HiME was. They practically cheated with that one.

And this is why I was hoping it was a separate Gaiden rather than a straight up remake.
3714  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Surprise! Drakengard 3 (aka; how to damn "nier" lose your shit about old title) on: April 04, 2013, 12:33:19 PM
They gotta stop revealing screen shots and go directly for gameplay. 

I'm willing to cut the crap graphics some slack if it's traditional Drakengard gameplay (where the camera is pulled pretty far back 90% of the time).

The problem with this is that they could do much better than traditional Drakengard gameplay. But as long as there are a ton of cursed weapons with messed up backstories to collect and a dragon to ride and burninate with then it should be fine enough (please don't hide the final ending behind a batshit rhythm minigame showdown).

Also, who, I wonder, is the dragon Mikhail reincarnated from? Hopefully, its not baldy from D1. That guy needed a sharp pointy thing crammed up his ass big time.
3715  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: April 04, 2013, 12:24:50 PM
Same here. The moment it's announced, I'm going to preorder whatever super giga megma assault battery rapid wizard's companion ultra uber sentinel N7 dragon edition they have.

Meanwhile, that swank FE 3DS I got in February will be seeing a lot of mileage this year (regardless as to whether this pans out or not).

And now for more hilarious retro anime dubs.

Edit: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ftc_Pbhb3IE&t=1m24s

And hilarious video game dubs.

Not unexpected, just depressing.
3718  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Pandora's Tower is Coming on: April 03, 2013, 01:06:31 PM

And now we know when its coming too.
3719  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mind 0 is not Persona...er...well...maybe not... on: April 03, 2013, 10:24:32 AM

More characters for the not-Persona.

Yeah. I suppose you all have a point. Besides, with the way you have to go through that spaceship in the original (let alone other stages like the Himalayas, Transylvania, and the Mines), having to look for piece parts along the way might actually with navigation or provide a better sense of progress (or hinder them if say you missed a semi-difficult to reach chest with a vital piece needed to advance and then you have to go back).
