Bumping for the trip report.

Apparently they still don't quite get it.

Seiken Densetsu III improves upon Secret of Mana in virtually every way.  Visuals, Audio, combat, skills, characters, replayability, it's not even a contest. 

Of the five "big modern 3D console Zelda" games: Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Wind Waker, Twilight Princess, and Skyward Sword... Ocarina of Time and Skyward Sword are the two worst.  They're good games, but those two are in fourth and fifth place.  None of those five are as good as A Link to the Past or the three Zelda games for the Game Boy Color. 

I'm of the other opinion due to SD2 being three player versus SD3's 2 players max. Also SD2's bug set was less crippling to certain characters than than SD3's bug set. Moreover, I liked the more open design of SD2's fields and areas versus SD3's Original Zelda field design where you're going through a bunch of samey rooms (at least OGZelda had the decency to employ actual concepts of geography versus SD3's random hodge podge of geographical features (I'm looking at you Rolant and your Corridors of Wind)).

Also there were only two Zelda games for the GBC (barring the DX port of LA); Minish Cap was on the GBA.

Welp, it looks like I wont be needing this anymore, unless Django or the Contra dudes pull a sudden upset.

I think FFV gets too little love.  I thought it did battles better than 1-4, and maybe even 6.

I thought FF4 DS was a good touch, the Augment thing was a great addition, but only to go a step back with After Years.  Definitely in trying to cram in more plot than was necessary (though Golbez looked absolutely balls-deep-awesome).

Totally agree on everything. FFV may have had a terrible plot (but not really any worse than FFIVs), but it gave us one of the best skill systems of all time. It also has great atmosphere and locales. Honestly, I think it's everything that FFIV was and more. AND it doesn't have endless, needless resurrections. People die, and they stay dead.

If people lauded it as much as FFIV, I'd probably complain too, but people hate on that game like nothing else, and it just doesn't deserve it.

Well except for X-Death and his splinter shenanigans.

That said, FFV definitely has the best gameplay of the SuperNES era FFs. Mostly for both having an actual difficulty curve (unlike FFVI) that's not entirely dependent on who's been affixed to your party at the moment (unlike FFIV).

Additionally, the Augments of FFIVDS was probably the single best solution to the game's rigid linearity/party system.

Incidentally the key/mattock matter in FFA wasn't that big of a deal due to the game always throwing you those weak enemies from Kett's Manor that dropped keys and mattocks (also the game gives you the Morning Star later on that lets you disregard any further need for mattocks).

You missed the, by far, most important bit.

Might as well be fair and include something from everybody.

I sort of thought it might be, but I could see it being real all the same to some extent.

*GAASPP*


Now imagine that with wires.

Also needs moar Vectrex.

Eh. It's more involved than your usual RPG and that's what counts in my book.

And speaking of my book, any Ratchet and Clank game is usually good, but very science fiction in an almost Futurama-ese sort of way.

Ahhhh yes the ability to speed up movement on ze' field or map! A minor yet curiously integral piece of a great RPG for me!-LoL

Ever since the dawn of sprint shoes in FF3 (6) when I was but a young lad I was hooked! Always had a relic slot occupied with a pair... Never once did I feel compromised in any way that I was missing a slot for some added effect... the shoes took precedence, always.

A little later on in life, a blue haired elf by the name of Stallion became a fixture in my suikoden party for his true holy rune. Is stallion effective in combat? Not unless you've got kirkis along for the ride for a nice unite attack.... do I keep kirkis around? No..... but I'll be damned if I am gonna crawl across a world map after experiencing how swift Stallion could make my journey!

I could go on, but you get the idea...

Personal Pet-Peeve on this note..... I absolutely hate it when the "speed up" in a game is a single direction dash that ends me smashing into things head on through my whole playthrough OR when said movement is increased by an evasive roll.... I don't want to sumersault or tumble through my playthroughs damnit!

Especially if those somersaults come with a constant barrage of yelping and hiyaing.

I'll admit it. I was more than half expecting this to get canned like Grand Knights History.

I'll be blunt here: that's an idiotic expectation given Chunsoft has shown no signs of being in serious trouble, and we RARELY see news of a game getting canned after being announced for localization. That, and this is a release for newer platforms, the 3DS is healthy enough to survive for awhile I think so worst case scenario would've been the Vita version getting canned, but I don't believe the Vita's THAT disastrous of a failure just yet (and at least some niche games are doing well, NIS was pleased with Disgaea 3's performance in Japan.)

Well, and we usually see a long, awkward silence, the time from announcement hasn't been THAT long.

To be fair, it was the only recent example I could come up with that I was certain was canned (otherwise I would've gone with that dumb Black Rock Shooter game but that'd involve caring enough to actually look up what's the deal with that one apparently that's still TBA). So sorry for even thinking that a game, once announced for localization, could possibly get canned.

Not exactly fantasy and definitely not historical but the Megaman Legends games are pretty RPG-like without being full on RPG or totally sandboxy like other not-RPGs. Granted, it is pretty actiony, but as long as you remember to jump strafe everything vaguely threatening, you'll be fine.

Also while I know that everyone here considers it to be full on RPG, I do think that Vagrant Story is esoteric enough to also be considered not a straight RPG. It's pretty actiony and definitely has a historical fantasy thing going for it.

If you're not restricted by age, then The Guardian Legend is cool beans. Granted it's sci-fi and also part side-scrolling shooter but it has the usual RPG accoutrements including weapon and life upgrades and so on.

Additionally either of the old Kid Icarus games are basically RPG platformers (collect hearts to buy shit, upgrade your weapon with power and attributes, use hammers to find secrets, map out dungeons, and go on the run from your creditors for maxing out your credit card and refusing to pay back the hearts you owe). Plus they're at the very least historical fantasy based.

Follow the Aksys team on twitter. They're talking about the localization non-stop, including voice acting.

I need to pay more attention to Aksys. *facepalm*

I am disappoint that there's no Francis York Morrigan in this. This is not the Greenvale that I....Oh. Wait. Fuck....

Edit:


Something that's been bothering me lately ZH is your avatar. What iz it man!?

It's the cover to my novel. XD I switched it out from the old one since my publisher wanted me to try a new one to see if it had any effect on sales and all that jazz. It's my way of subtle advertising without spamming up a topic or slapping a banner ad across a signature.

Before I forget again, what's the name of said novel? In case I want to, you know, look it up or read it.
