Double postin' for a release date of March 2013.

Here is the best analysis of why the Star Wars prequels were so friggin terrible that I've ever seen.  It's seriously long, though.  Like almost as long as the movies.  So make sure you have some time.

Conclusion: there was a lot more wrong with those movies than the actors.  Actually they had some decent actors but gave them shit to work with.

I was referring to the old new trilogy as a whole since even when they did get a more appropriately aged Annie he still wasn't a likeable or sensible character. Moreover a good deal of Episode 1's issues wouldn't have been a problem if Annie had been older, Pandabear had been left on the shelf until Episode 2, and either Obi Wan running solo or Qui Gon being more like an aging statesmen that Obi Wan was escorting for the negotiating purposes (or at the very least Annie and Obi Wan having the relationship Obi Wan and Qui Gon had in that movie; minus the getting ganked by Maul at the end part). Maybe I should've phrased my previous post better.

But yes, I will concur that there is a whole laundry list of reasons as to why the old new trilogy failed. For instance Lucas wasting an entire film flaffin' about with the Chosen One's Midiclorians, Tattoine's Pod Racing, and Naboo's Gungans.

We got the JP date and knowledge that the original developers are doing the port/remake.

IF this gets translated, it should at least receive a far better translation than before barring Squeenix completely phoning this in as the original localization was badly rushed and undermanned.

Gentlemen please. They're obviously getting J.J. Abrams on this Star Wars reboot.

Joking aside though, I'm far more worried about the actors they're going to cast. After all part of the reason why the previous 'new' trilogy failed was because they had a bunch of teens trying to act as dumb, angsty teens and the last thing we need is Disney to push their teeny pops of the year into these movies for more of the same.

Wasn't that an old urban legend?

Great, its just a GREE social game that doesn't even sound wholly new but more like a 2nd Another Day.




Called it.

If its anything like other OG games then they'll probably dedicate an arc to it like they're going to probably do with every other new game's plot before turning the whole thing into a massive clusterfuck of villains, upgrades, and plots.

Also, you'd have an easier time counting the systems that DON'T have a Ys game on it.

That's like every handheld up to the GBA then all bets are off.

Great, now they just need some actors that have hit puberty to fill the roles and....oh. :(

On the plus side, Star Wars characters for KH3.

If this means that I can beat NSMBU in under 14 stages then we will finally have a worthy successor to SMW.

And the other modes are nifty too, I guess.
3821  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Quest VII coming to 3DS (Japan) in Feb. on: October 30, 2012, 11:31:51 AM
Oh hell yes!

Here's hoping they do the sensible thing and reduce the amount of grinding it takes to learn abilities (and give Melvin and Aria a better skill set load out when they join you instead of just giving Aria mastery over the quickest and easiest class to master in the game and five levels in the fairly quick to master category and jack squat to Melvin).

Edit: Also make it so you can't permanently screw yourself out of lithograph shards by missing a treasure chest in a cave you only get to visit once during the first disk or something to that effect.

Double Edit: And here's hoping they speed up the opening sequence so that it doesn't take an hour before you have the opportunity to get into your first fight.

Triple Edit: And maybe making Dharma Shrine/Alltrades Abbey accessible a little bit earlier than a full third of the way through the game.

Final Edit, I Swear: And let the unfortunate sap(s? looks like they're adding another party member to this which would help in the awkwardness of only having five teammates in a four man battle party) stuck on the bench get at least some job experience rather than forcing me to abandon Maribel because Aria caught up in class levels and either my MC or Gabo have surpassed her in the magic department thus making her entirely redundant.

As somebody with no art talent he amazed me by being able to make things looks so good by doing so little. 'You just did 4 quick brush strokes, WHY IS THAT A BEAUTIFUL TREE?!' and why is it so happy?

 And I can't believe the guy who made Mr Rogers look stressed and angry was a drill sergeant.

Which is even more incredible once you knew that Mr. Rogers was a former sniper.

For the two people left who have yet to take the dive.

So yes, Blondie (and so far only Blondie) gets a costume out of this.

Also if this game is supposed to be on PCs then where's the porn? It's basically a rule at this point in Japan's Gaming Industry to only ever release pornographic and indie games (which tend to have pornographic elements to them anyways) on PCs.

On the other hand it could mean a Cybuster/Valsione upgrade (or at least open up the Prana option for them).

Of course you can't really have The Lord of Elemental without Shu and last I checked he kind of died during OG1 (not like this ever stopped alternate versions from taking over the bad guy spot).
