Watching Soul Gain pummel the meter or air above Alt Eisen and Woden's Sledgelmir's backside take up over half of the screen real estate is just awkward as all hell.

That said, Shu and his Neo Granzon's excellent adventure sounds hilariously awesome.

Murphy being blown up by a car bomb?

Wait wait wait. A reboot in which an older era beloved character comes into his 'iconic form' by an explosive inside of a vehicle; additionally gaining a cybernetic body which hosts an array of abilities and tools to get the job done as a law enforcement official?

Hmm...this has a history of ending well...

XD

That's it. Pack it in. Stick a fork in it. This thread is done and the movie is going to both suck and blow horribly now.


This reboot is going to be terrible,lol.  I'm a huge fan of the original Robocop.  Murphy being blown up by a car bomb?  Also, the new suit looks like something from the Chritopher Nolan Batman movies.  The only redeeming factor is Michael Keaton, but I don't think that will amount to anything.  I bet this won't even have an epic ED209 fight.

It's too bad Keaton isn't playing Robocop in this as we'd finally have a Robocop shorter than this guy.

Yeah Riddick is like Pitch Black just not as good.  Don't get me wrong, it is still enjoyable.  If money is tight just watch Pitch Black again. 


So did the end reveal that
Code:
Riddick
was the bad guy all along again?

Well, the first part with the first game is great. You should watch it.
As you said, the show takes a dump when they hit 'the second game'.

Yeah, I think I'm hitting that part in the show now. It just seems to be a slice of life in Keito's online harem. It's amazing at just how hard it is to take Asuna seriously at all and I continue to suspect that its nothing but downhill from here.

Now there's tje Aeris costume
If they only gave us the costume we all want (Tifa)...

And another staff chick costume. Does this one include a 'getting shanked by a ten foot long Japanese Katana' attack at least?

I think ALL of the REST of the FF7 cast (even Barret!?) would have suited her better than Aeris.

Lightning is one of those chicks who would look good in the --tight business pants-- than she would in frilly skirts is what I'm trying to say.  So (IMO) she kinda clashes with the Yuna and Aeris design; but the Locke one worked beautifully.

It's that hair of hers really. A pink not side-tail just doesn't really fit many options, although, not nearly as badly as her grumpy attitude clashing with the old-skool FF demure staff-chick designs does.

I think the only pre-FFX female characters that Lightning can pull of cosplaying as are FFV's Faris (the one I've been personally hoping to see), FFVI's Celes (preferably using her Amano design rather than her FFIV Rosa getup used in the game, but I can take either), FFVII's (no bloody AC, BC, CC, or DoC) Titfa, FFIX's Beatrix (maybe, her hair's not really long enough for it), and possibly FFVIII's Quitis (their builds aren't quite similar enough for a smooth conversion and Lightning looks like she can only rock the Dominatrix part of Quitis' Dominatrix/Hot-Teacher look).

And here's the list without Aliens: Colonial Marines shitting up the list.

I could've sworn they had more titles than just this and technically A:CM? Either way, that's a lot of ports.

Am I the only one who would think an Atlus created Phantasy Star game would be insane enough to work? (Better than Tri-ace...)

Anyway, not really sure what to feel on this. If Sega leaves Atlus to do their own thing, s'all good. If not..ugh.

Wouldn't matter though, it'd never leave Japan even if it did happen.

I don't get annoyed by anything I read on the internet!

Whatever you say princess. :3

I think you mean, "Well excuuuse me, princess."

Especially for this thread.

@aeolus

Thanks for the tips. I've been tempted to restart SRW:OG, though I've kinda been playing the same save for so long that I don't know how comfortable I'd be doing that...but I don't think I'll get where I want to be without doing that...

In the meantime, I've been playing Phantasy Star II. I'm actually enjoying it quite a bit so far. It's slow, the stats are bullcrap, the dungeons are unnecessarily maze-like with stuff in the foreground that can obstruct your view, and the story, even for a game of its age is kinda loopy...yet I find it has a certain charm to it, and I can't put it down. I'm exploring the Biolab now, though I think I'll need to wait until I can get Rudo a new pair of guns before I get too far in.

You shouldn't have to worry too much about resetting if it bothers you that much, you should be able to quickly make up the ground you've already covered the first time through easily enough (since the HP sponges and longer slog missions don't show up until later in the game). Generally speaking a lot of the game's difficulty has a workaround to it like the M95 upgrade trick or prioritizing Attacker on your damage dealers but there really isn't anything that should force you into using an exploit until near the end of the game where you need to start making sure you have as many EN reduction weapons on as many support attackers as possible.

Also some advice on the game's secrets is to make sure to level up both scenarios' main protagonists and to have them collect 50 kills apiece (55 for the one who shows up later) as well as to make sure both carrier ship captains up to level 38 (Repair Modules can go a long way towards this but with the rate of leveling you shouldn't have to worry about this until you're at the deadline), there's also a unit that you can get that a princess is forced to pilot that you probably haven't encountered yet on your first run, you'll want to complete the Battle Mastery for this stage with a certain character (the game will pretty much tell you who) to get the unit, there's also another optional unit that you can get if you feed levels to a pilot named Ingram/Viletta (depending on your scenario) before a certain point (thankfully you don't need to worry about gaining kills so the Repair Module trick will work on them too).


As for PS2, good luck on that one. The game is an archaic slog.

Come on guys, don't we have better threads for this.

3733  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Phantasy Star Nova (developed by Tri-Ace) on: September 20, 2013, 11:54:29 AM

You know Sega, this would be a fine time to talk to those fellows you just spent a whole shitload of money on to do something about this.

So yaaaay we're getting it finally

Seems like the normal time frame to me. More like "yaaay they confirmed we're getting it finally" though that too seems to be within the normal time frame. Certainly sooner than Ayesha at least that took until, what, early this year?

At least they actually confirmed it's coming rather than 'randomly showing up on your PSN doorstep one day with a note attached going "Here you go."'.
3735  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: FFIV The After Years gets a 3D iOS remake!? on: September 19, 2013, 04:52:33 PM
V is in desperate need of rebalancing, too. Then again, abusing the job system there is part of what makes the game appealing.

Honestly, I'd be okay with V or VI.  Just stop with the IV, Jesus Christ.

True, some of the classes really needed revisiting (at least make Berserkers not completely worthless). But still, FFVI will bend over backwards for anybody not completely new to the genre.
