I reviewed Fullmetal Alchemist and the Broken Angel.  I didn't think the game was very good.  FMA is a solid anime and manga, but the game was dull.

To me the thing about FMA's setting is that it's both very well established but also hard to do anything with because of the scale of the main plot of the manga series and the fact that there are just so many badasses running around by the end. In this case your only real options involve minor incidents, some sort of massive civil war with some of the outlying power players (like the other neighboring countries) getting involved and dividing allegiances of the various cast members, or some sort of massive timeskip to some other era in the series's timeline. In fact direct sequels aren't going to work in either continuity due to Edward's final state in both of them and both the pacing of the series's plot and the fact that the big secrets of the world's mechanics have been discovered doesn't really leave much for midquels to work with either. You're basically left with having to start with a fresh batch of characters to have their own adventures and battles in the FMA world which pretty much defeats the purpose of creating a tie-in video game and the setting is going to make any world conquering/destruction plots fall flat on its face given the scale and amount of effort it took for the main series to pull what it did (nevermind the fact that pretty any vet from the series is going to have a hard time justifying staying out of the fight).

I just don't see videogame developers being able to work with the setting and the characters at all unless they basically recreate the series in videogame form and that would have to involve some sort of Suikoden/Fire Emblem SRPG hybrid to cover the contributions of the majority of the cast while also taking in to account the differences in power levels between characters (the disparity between characters like Mustang and Hawkeye are huge but both are integral to the plot and then there's guys like Havoc and Ross who basically get benched midway through the plot but still manage to contribute to the final battle in the end). And that's not even getting near the issue of being able to recreate the best moments of the series in game form (some of which will probably require playable named characters dying and I can't imagine players liking that at all (re:Shadow Dragon)).

Tl;dr: I can't imagine any FMA game being good. The Manga nailed it and I don't see any real possibility of a video game doing the series proper service, especially given the current state of the industry.

code geass 2 was fine aside from the ending.

Because the ending wasn't fine, it was awesome.
That's what you meant, right?

I recall the ending being just as awful as the rest of the show- overwrought, overexecuted, and overly contrived.

You realize that this particular statement sums up somewhere over 25% of anime and manga endings with another 25% going into "Oh yeah!? Well MY mech can throw entire galaxies at you too and its powered by both hotblood AND friendship!" and 49% being either soft or hardcore porn and the remaining 1% being actually good instead of ironically good.

The way I said it was a joke..........

I dont know what kiseki means either but if someone asked I might put kiseki means kiseki........

el nino means the nino? snl anyone?

I guess jokes like that are funnier in real life..........

No you'd be dyin' on the stage just as fast as a Zoidburg at the Apollo on stand-up night would. The only difference is that I can't throw a tomato at you for your unfunny spam posts.

Jihl was hot, she deserved a more anime style gruelingly painful death for being such a cunt muffin though. I wanted something like her head popping or impaled through the chest, maybe some silent hill style skin rippage.


She was a fucking cunt muffin.

Dude....You've got issues.

:stare:
Sorry, you don't do sazh dirty like that. He already got no respect from anyone, then that bitch deads him by turning his son to crystal right before his eyes after being all nurturing to him and his son(yeah yeah, she didn't do it, she caused it, but knew how it would happen). I feel slighted that she didn't even get a proper boss fight. I tell you now, when thay dlc drops, i'm going in it with sazh and fucking destorying the bitch. She obviously hated the 'fro.

So she let Sazh's son turn into crystal instead of Ce'ith. Beyond that all she did was suck and die. Sure I think everyone who played that game up to that part felt giped about the lack of a boss fight. Still doesn't warrant a guro-porn end no matter how hot she may or may not be.

What!? No "Domo" "Oregato" or even "Mr. Roboto"? Fucking kids.

I almost want to say that Sword of Mana was both a remake and a reboot given that it basically tried to make a new version of FFA that ties more strongly into SD3 and LoM while also continuing to pretend that Secret never existed. And then it effectively became the groundwork for that awful World of Mana compilation (which consisted of two prequels, a sequel to one of those prequels, and a mobile phone game that never saw the light of day outside of Japan).

You don't think going from FF6 to FF7 was a reboot?

FFVII was basically FFs V & VI in THREE DEE with an awesome shot of a CGI motorcycle driving down the road, less memory to work with which lead to the game feeling smaller, a move from steampunk to cyberpunk (until you left Midgar at which point it became some sort of weird series of dystopian, multicultural, JRPG village hybrids), and Materia and three man parties.

It's more disconnected but still upholding many of the primary themes that the series held versus actually rebooting from scratch.

I believe this is what one would refer to as a "Re-Boot".

Some new Famitsu scans have cropped up and now there are branching class promotions ala FEVIII. Great Knights are back and apparently Clerics can now promote into a class that let's them whack baddies upside the head with an axe.

Additionally, looks like Akaneia isn't the only FE continent being revisited in this game. Compare images between the left end of the map in the corner and this map. Suddenly my theory that some of this game's DLC is going to basically act as an FEII remake seems a bit more likely now.

I am disappoint that this thread wasn't actually talking about an RPG style remake of that PSX Reboot game.

This.

Bonus points if they can somehow put this into a fighting game.

I found this the other day, and NOW I CAN'T UNSEE IT.



Does this mean that Gaia's the teacher or would that be Captain Planet?

Well now that I think about it, the Magic School Bus would have to be Captain Planet since they're both magic.

Hathen was being sarcastic, Farron.  Total tongue in cheek there.  I'd post a joke response, but everyone else's have been better.  LOL at the idea of La Blue Girl, Lady Blue, or Urotsukidoji RPGs.  I'm surprised none of the jokesters mentioned the Final Fantasy: Legend of the Crystals anime.

Obviously because FFV's cast isn't as popular as FFIV's cast so no After Years for it.


That said, another comes to mind. I remember around the turn of the millennium there was this OVA called Legend of the Fire Emblem. It followed this Prince named Mars who was putting together an army to fight a dragon, and though it looked a little bland and didn't seem to get very far but maybe in game form it could get the ending it never had. Though I doubt that it would make for a good JRPG as the cast size was pretty large by the time it ended but maybe as an SRPG it might just work as those tend to handle large casts pretty well.

But for something recent a game based on that Persona anime from a few years ago might be interesting, even if the anime wasn't well liked.
