Just to be clear, my comment was more related to what kkhohoho said of the (hypothetical) remake of FFVI by SQEX being bad and all that. Not The After Years remake for iOS.

To be fair though, Squeenix's track record with these things haven't been the best, given FFIIIDS's job system being rebalanced in a half assed way and IV's Knacks needing a guide to navigate and limited NG+es just to rub it in.

And FFVI is definitely a game that needs rebalancing like woah.

Still though, this is all a moot point since The After Years can only really go up from here. Doesn't justify them passing over V for it though, I mean, who the hell wanted The Blunder Years getting a DS styled remake?

Sounds interesting enough to keep my eye on for now.

I don't think Capcom is interested in much of anything, lately.

Besides crushing dreams I guess.


Monster Hunter.

In Japan, anyway...

Not like it ever mattered though. Capcom couldn't have afforded to buy up Atlus even if they wanted to.

No really. Capcom's worth less than Atlus' asking price right now.

There are a number of fusions specific to certain alignments, but you can carry them over between playthroughs. The alignment "lock" doesn't happen to much pretty the end game though, and everything before that is shared.

My bad, I should've been clearer on my question.

I meant can I fuse the demon if I never fight the guy in the first place (alignment be dammed)?

And for specific reference:
Code:
I'm asking about the guy you need to fight for the talisman needed to enter Ikebukuro. I opted to kick the teeth of the Ashura-Kai thug and his pack of Harpies in instead. Between worrying about missing a special fusion and the possibility of encountering a similar situation with the Ring of Gaea, I wanted an answer that didn't involve me spoilering the hell out of myself to look up in the process.

I guess the one bright spot to this is that they'll finally have a version of The Wonder Years that doesn't look like it was made in RPGMaker.

Of course it'll still probably cost more than its worth (especially if they dole it out in episodic content again like they did with the WiiWare version).

Why Squeenix? Just Why?

So I have a question about SMTIV. If I have an opportunity to choose between fighting a boss demon and fighting some putz with a supped up hoard of trash mobs, will I miss anything if I opt for taking out the trash rather than fighting the boss?

I think I know which part you're talking about. I opted for the trash mob, I think it later opens up an optional side quest where you can fight said boss anyway. I'm pretty your decision affects your alignment as well.

Oh cool. I knew about the alignment change since I wanted to lean towards Chaos for now so that I can swing back toward Neutral when the big decision comes up, but both guides on GameFAQs are laden with spoilers and didn't mention anything of relevance within the parts of the game I had already covered so I figured this was the next best place to ask.

But still, for future reference, will making similar choices down the line lock me out of something like a particular Special Fusion?

So for those of you out there who can't stand digital or just want to keep it oldskool, you're in luck.

Okay, now that it's not O'dark-thirty in the morning, I can elaborate on what I'm worried about.

Frankly, I don't see anything bad happening with Atlus of Japan, hell they might use some of the talent to make like a Growlanser/Shining Force hybrid or something, which is all very well and good. No, my problem is in regards to Atlus USA's fate since Sega's been like, really really bad about bothering to localize any of their RPGs as of late (they'll no doubt continue distributing Sonic and stuffs like Vitrua Fighter, provided they still do that). Anyways, since the majority of Atlus' output is RPG based, I suspect one of two things happen A) Sega gets smart for once and actually have Atlus USA localize some of their RPG titles that have otherwise been stranded in Japan as well as letting them continue work on their own stuffs unabated, or B) Sega does the usual and continue to not bother letting any of their RPG content see the light of day outside of Japan despite whatever interests or infrastructure might exist and forces Atlus to shut their USA branch down as a cost saving measure (since without the RPGs what do they localize?).

sega has run phantasy star into the ground this is terrible.

Sega has made a lot of bad business decisions over the past 20 years.

The world as we know it has ended.

Well, Phantasy Star (along with that other nice list of games that people like to bring up when taking shots at Sega) have always been in-house titles that were CHOSEN not to be released and were very conscious decisions on Sega's part. In many cases, (not including the Shining series, that was pretty dumb) they were pretty legitimate reasons for not coming overseas. (Much to our dismay as fans of these games, but that's just how things go sometimes.)

But really, the fact of the matter is that Sega has many, many, MANY subsidiaries which have been generally good with releasing their games stateside. Atlus isn't going to stop making the things they make, they're just gonna keep on trucking along. Another thing not to forget is that Atlus isn't JUST a developer. They are also PUBLISHERS who publish their own games. All Sega-Sammy's gonna do is act as the majority stockholder and overseers. The only time they'd really interfere would be if Atlus was in active financial trouble.

Sega may have made some dumb decisions with their in-house studios, but Atlus is NOT an in-house studio. They are an acquisition that will, in all likelihood, be working entirely on their own.

The problem is that there's a non-zero chance of Sega going to Atlus Japan and say "Shut it down Atlus USA, SHUT IT DOWN FOREVER!".

A nice picture that unfortunately doesn't make up for the fact that this Kickstarter threw Shantae's Kickstarter under the bus.

Xenobalde - Up to Zeal.

Best suggestion for Alcamoth is to backburner a number of those quests for a while so that you don't burn out on them since you literally just came from another shitload of sidequests.

Also, bring your Quick Step gems. That place is fucking huge.

I laughed, but not because of the chick and her sass....

I like that the images are the same except for the gif in the middle.

Also, at least MJ isn't dead (last time I checked).

Well fuck!

Never mind losing the Persona-spam, we're going to be losing even that occasional errant oddball title that might have a chance but nobody else wants to take that Altus USA localizes every year (in addition to all the SMT related stuffs).
