3706  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Sega announces Monster World 4 (a Japan only Genesis game) to be translated on: May 13, 2011, 01:51:24 AM
What's so amazing about this is that it's coming on the VC. Usually when dealing with Japan only imports, and really, every other game released for the service, absolutely no changes are made to the Rom. It's been this archaic reasoning that's kept a LOT of Japan only games from continuing to ever see the light of day on the VC. Imagine all the games that could've come out for the VC had Nintendo allowed for localizations for games that didn't originally have one. Bahamut Lagoon, the Romancing SaGa trilogy, Seiken Densetsu 3, Fire Emblems 1 - 5, Treasure of Rudra, Live-A-Live, Treasure Hunter G, Ys IV & V, Final Fantasy's 2, 3, & 5, and so on....

But of course, this is all wishful thinking because we're far more likely to end up with maybe the options screen translated badly and nothing else.

popped in deadly premonition...


not sure if I should say:

...uh

wow

lol

or

exit to dashboard

The first two. You shouldn't even be considering the third one.

Through granted, the combat segments are balls, but the cast is excellent and it has a great plot to it. Plus it's basically Twin Peaks meets Majora's Mask which goes together like a Turkey, Jam, and Cereal Sandwich. It really is up there with Nier as 2010's Diamond in the Rough of the Year.


Played Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth.  Someone traded it in, and I took it.
When I first played this game, I didn't understand, I was young and immature to the Tri-Ace cacophony of different skills and item creation options and all that bullshit.

Trying to get the A ending... it's making me nervous.  The list of requirements is both scary and almost unreasonable difficult to make Lenneth happiest by the ending.  C'est la vie.  The game has been pretty easy, sad I didn't pick the Hard Mode... I might still, it's just a matter of re-scrolling through so much damn text.

Actually Hard Mode is the easiest of the game. A lot of the prizes exclusive to HM easily outweigh the loss of EXP and enemies give more to begin with.

Code Geass Gaiden coming soonish(?)
http://www.anime-access.com/articles/Code_Geass_Gaiden:_Boukoku_no_Akito
Code:
Lelouch looks like such a girl.
Oh well, he's dead now.

Quote
One Shigeru Morita, who did scripts for Mobile Suit Gundam Seed and a variety of episodes of Blood+ and Toward the Terra, will be on screenplay duty for the new Geass.

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck.


Quote
And Kazuki Akane, whose directed works like Vision of Escaflowne and Noein, will helm the new series.

Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh.

I'm iffy now. Gundam SEED and Destiny were shit story and character wise, so I have a feeling the story and characters are also gonna be shit here. But I love Escaflowne and Noein, so I don't know how to react.

On the one hand, I don't remember if SeeD and GSD had the same script writer or if I'm mixing up the script writer with director (which is VERY easy to do in GSD's case given the fact that they were one and the same). On the other hand I kinda remember watching Blood+ wondering where did that badass from Blood: The Last Vampire go and why am I having to watch this utterly useless chick sleepwalk around while the even more lifeless bishie does everything for the rest of the cardboard cutouts.

As for Noein, uuuunnnnhhhhgggg.... I'll admit that when it got good, it got good, but that only happened rarely and usually within the fight scenes. I'm pretty sure everything else was technobabble culled from a 5 hour seminar on quantum mechanics or iron manning the good episodes of StarTrek:TNG.

Also which Escaflowne? The TV series or that terrible movie?

I really want to see Thor! I'm thinking of taking my 10 year-old son this weekend. Do you folks think it'll be OK for a kid that age? He's seen other PG-13 movies like Avatar and Nine with no issues.


Totally safe. This is Marvel we're talking about after all. It's no more violent than X-Men or Spiderman.
3710  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Next Vanillaware Title to be Grand Knight History on: May 11, 2011, 02:18:51 AM
This will probably get you even more excited then. Also the article causally mentioned that it has both on-line and off-line play, which brings its own potential awesomeness.

http://www.siliconera.com/2011/05/10/7th-dragon-2020-coming-to-psp-but-wont-look-like-the-ds-game/

Well this is certainly a thing. Doesn't help that we STILL haven't gotten 7th Dragon 1 yet but maybe they'll have better luck with Sony this time around.

OG2 like most SRW games isn't really that hard unless you're doing the Skill Points/Battle Masteries and you're on your first playthough in which case it actually does get really hard (especially at the end if you're not prepared for it or aren't cheesing the hell out of the WildFalken R). Also god help you if you want to get all the bonus items off of Episode 15 (hint: to get most of them you have to shoot down every enemy rather than escape like you're supposed to do, the other bonus item is received at the start of the episode if you met it's requirements earlier).
3713  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: FFIV Complete Collection for PSP on: May 10, 2011, 02:56:46 AM
your talking to someone who eats up strategy rpg's. sprites arent the problem honey. the problem is they STILL have this attacking at air with damage numbers appearing over the enemy. is it to much to ask to at least have the characters jump next to the enemy before attacking?

Didn't you slam FEDS2 for having terrible graphics, and not in the "This is a fine but unfortunately ugly game." sense but in the "This is an awful game because it's ugly.".

Frankly though, can we all agree that at least we're getting to see both combatant groups duke it out at the same time instead of maybe a portrait in the UI if we're lucky.

Recently Viewed Thor. First half kept me wondering whether this movie is going anywhere or not, second half though put on the show. Loki just wasn't that great of a villain in this. Yes, he played both sides well, but you knew from the start that he was the villaiin because he's fucking Loki and of course he's playing both sides. As a result his character motivation felt like it was constantly changing abruptly leaving you to feel as if you really aren't seeing what he's truly after, even by the end. Aside from the action and humor it felt like this movie was trying to turn on every chick in the theater.

This just in, Ashe's outfit still makes no fucking goddamn sense.

Btw, TitS question. Is it worth getting all the side-quests done, or can some of them like the hidden quest over at the second tower be skipped safely?
3716  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Guardian Heroes remake coming to XBLA on: May 05, 2011, 03:11:11 PM
Hopefully this turns out to be better than Guardian Heroes Advanced.
3717  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenoblade + The Last Story on: May 05, 2011, 01:36:14 AM
Huzzah. Now all we need is confirmation from a better site and we're good to go.

I don't trust any localization news unless there's a second opinion somewhere (granted they'll most likely site the very same source but there'll be additional investigation as to whether or not it's a hoax or just a mistake, and that's when I'll rest assured).
3718  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Best (and Worst) Female Protagonists on: May 03, 2011, 10:29:45 AM
2nd best is Heather from Silent Hill 3.



Very realistic design and personality. A lead character doesn't have to be cool or kick-ass to be good. Like April Ryan for example. Not something you can easily find in a JRPG.

Have to go back to this post with this. Not exactly what I would call a great example of female protagonisting.

Currently playing the Sims 3.

Wish I had an interesting life like a sim.Wish I could get work as a criminal while looking through the newspaper.

Wish that you would go home to find your home is now a 10ft x 10ft box fully stuffed shoulder to shoulder with smelly naked homeless men and unchanged babies, and the door behind you just disappeared? Wish that a bunch of dumpsters and Boom-Boxes blasting at max would magically show up right outside of your home? Wish that your home's toilet disappeared? Wish that at the last vestiges of your health bar that the oven catches on fire and burns the whole mess down?

What can I say? I get pretty sadistic when playing The Sims?

Sweet. Nailed him in Pakistan. Looks like I'm cleaning up tonight.
