NOEL

It was previously revealed that new main character Noel is from the future where he somehow managed to become the last remaining human. According to Famitsu, he's having some memory problems due to a time paradox.


Noel! What have you done!? You've created a Time Paradox!!! Oh hai there Trunks.

They should like, put Einhänder on PSN at the same price of Vagrant Story instead of putting the the 5th (or whatever) version of these games on another system.

Just sayin'.

Gotta agree. These are versions hampered with awful load times, and there are vastly superior ports for both console (VC) and handheld (GBA and DS), only argument to be made is there's less cropping than either version would have on the Nintendo systems and in the case of FFVI I THINK the PS1 version has better sound than the GBA one.

However, there's still a treasure trove of SE games to bring out, whether it's the none-RPG spin-offs or stuff like SaGa Frontier that has a small but dedicated fanbase. At the least stuff like Einhander and Bushido Blade should be made available again.

ALL versions of FFVI have better sound than the GBA one (save the GBA one of course :downsrims:).

Final Fantasy V on the 3DS with a team of (what would appear to be) four lolis and a flying fairy? Sign me up.

Two or three of them are undoubtedly not going to be the right gender to be "lolis". Even if it were three female characters the person you see in the in-game screenshots is definitely a guy.

Though that's not to say that one of them wouldn't turn out to be a girl all along and the other might die off and get replaced by his loli granddaughter.

I think Aeolus is playing... there was a thread about "which is better, Naruto or Bleach" and someone named Aeolus replied "Berserk."  Not sure if Aeolus is a popular anime character or what.

As humorous as that reply is, I unfortunately can't claim credit for it. Hell, I don't even have a PS3. (And besides, I'd probably say FMA before Berserk on the grounds that FMA's actually finished and I don't need to wait for forever for each chapter.)

The name Aeolus is based on a Greek mythological deity who's notoriety I forget at the moment. The reason why I chose that as my new user name was mostly due to the similarities to his name and the name of the sidekick from that cheese ball 90's live action Hercules show, and partly due to it being Megaman Zero's Harpura's non localized name (which is too bothersome to actually look up the correct spelling of).

Quick Chrono Question then.... do Magic Tabs even matter for Rob and Ayla?

Doing the sidequest onslaught and loving it.  Magus has "subbed in" for Chrono a bit.  He's got a gold stud-- nuff said.

Given that Robo's magic is designed to be somewhat comparable to everyone else's magic despite his abysmal Magic stat; it stands to reason that cranking it up to max would make his already naturally powerful magic monstrous.

Ayla less so.

Also if you can bear with it, you never need to give Robo even one Speed Tab since completing his special sidequest near the end of the game gives him a stat boost to Speed and M. Def.

Now there's the Squeenix we all know and loathe.

If it can take them 3 years before they put up anything for the VC never mind the 5 years it took for them to get around to putting CT/FFVI up on the VC then of course they aren't just going to put those two up on the PSN anytime soon never mind together.

Well compared to VII's Knights of the Round all of the rewards offered by X's minigames were pieces of shit, so it's understandable why the Chocobo Breeding wasn't all that bad compared to the shit pulled in X. And really it was the only massively tedious side quest of the game; I just wish you could start on it earlier than the second disk where there isn't as much plot going on.

Besides, it's not like I really have a right to complain about tedious shit in FFVII as someone who used Aerith's final limit break (once) without cheating for it.

Still think Triple Triad was the best of the lot though.

I wish tri-Ace could do something as good as Radiata again... it's been a while that all they've done is crap that disappoints me =/
(although I guess Resonance of Fate is debatable.)

I'd argue that Resonance of Fate was the better game despite the fact that both games are one-trick ponies because RoF was ridiculous as hell and it knew it.

NieR isn't the prettiest but is solid gameplay-wise and is heads and shoulders above the rest plotwise.
Resonance of Fate requires you to make triangles 99% of the time but it doesn't take itself seriously at all until the WTF ending and is excellent for it.
Valkyria Chronicles is the best damn new series introduced this console generation but is SRPG and may be a bit unforgiving.
The Last Remnant is SaGa in all but name and sports a sudo-FFXII/Ogre Battle gameplay mix and is really only an option on the PC as the 360 version is horribly gimped.
3D Dot Game Heroes if you want to see somebody rip off both Original Zelda and Ginormo Sword in Three Dee.
Blue Dragon if you don't care about plot but are looking for a FFV ripoff with DQ elements and some other stuff.
Deadly Premonition for fantastically kooky plot with entirely tacked on gameplay with a vague taste of Majora's Mask for that incredibly vague hint of JRPGness provided that you consider Zelda a JRPG.
Ar Tonelico 3 but only if you came from the previous two games, otherwise avoid.

The rest of the good stuff is on the Wii which includes:
Zelda Skyward Sword promises to be the most RPGish Zelda yet and even comes with some good old fashioned Metroidvaina flavor but isn't out yet.
Xenoblade Chronicles is THE JRPG of this console generation although a bit long in the tooth but you're fucked in you live in the US.
The Last Story also looks to be damn fine JRPGing but isn't out of Japan yet and you're again boned if you live in the US.
Zelda Twilight Princess despite the stupid "It's still Ganon" plot derail it's still a fairly decent game if a bit bland and lacks that awesomeness that previous Zelda's have.
Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn if you can tolerate unbalanced in a bizarre way SRPG gameplay and have played its predecessor on the Gamecube otherwise pass.

The tl;dr is that I'm really stretching here because otherwise you're screwed.
3897  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: September 19, 2011, 04:31:02 PM
Final Fantasy VII has a ton of mini-games. Now, what does that mean?

It means that even Knights of the Round can't really offset the pain that goes into Breeding Chocobos.

Remember, to breed successfully, your birds have to be of high racing rank; for each and every bird, and to go up a rank requires a couple of races a piece, either long or longer races, and often times the game will hate you and say "you're not winning this race"; and you can't quit in the middle of a race either. You also need to farm and or purchase the various Greens and Nuts needed to raise and breed all the various chocobos. And also to make sure you've captured the correct one for your immediate raising and breeding purposes or else you're going to wind up wasting a whole mess of time and resources on a dead end.


The only good FF minigame ever made was Triple Triad.

More people need to play The Granstream Saga.

Now THAT'S clunky.

Because FFXIII wasn't annoying enough they needed to bring back the most annoying aspect of the previous games.

Of course the best thing about this is the news of a new Berserk movie being in the works.

Oh and there's apparently something about a Ma's Dog with Drag On too, but I don't really care about a mother's cross dressing dog.
