I only seriously got into II in 2000, but I had enough nostalgia for 80s-ish stuff that it hit me there anyway.

I got into the series with the GBA port. Made the more tedious parts manageable by doing them in bed (except for that one dungeon in PS2 with all the holes and the fact that the game doesn't tell you that you only need 8 of the 9 pieces of Nei equipment to progress the game; at least I got to brush up on my cartographer skills on that one).

Although since the GBA port only went up to three I had to track down a copy of IV, which I managed to find for cheap on the Genesis (and was my only Genesis game for the longest time).

Say what you will about the Enterprise D, but nothing tops the silliness of Voyager's useless warp necell's repositioning function ("Tilting our engines towards each other by 45 degrees apiece will surely make us go faster." :technobabble::downs:)

Also if I had to choose which starship to jaunt around the galaxy in, I would gladly take a ride on the luxury cruise liner that is the Enterprise D, regardless as to how fat and ugly it was on the outside or how much explodium it was made of. Not even DS9 was as cushy as NCC 1701-D was.

I find all of the responses in this topic inadequate. Instead you should look at this picture,


And then say, "Hell Yeah!"

EDIT: Oh, and Yoda, I don't know if you just have awesome eyes or my perception is deeply flawed in some way. Maybe both. But I don't see much difference.

So basically, an even more ghetto looking Death Star 3?

And as to my thoughts on Trek '09, there's nothing anybody could possibly tell me that could convince me that it wasn't a better movie than Nemesis.

What a terrible way to close out TNG.

Preorder bonus for those who care.

Can you (As my unit?) marry with any unit here or you only make cupid work and pair characters?

I shamefully admit this is the only reason im considering this game altough i have played sacred stones and FE 6.

You can make the avatar sleep with any opposite gendered character in the game, barring the DLC and legacy characters. This includes children, late game characters, and post game characters among the usual lists of potential suitors. Additionally, whomever you pair the avatar up with will have a little cutscene play out depicting their proposal.

Seconded. Actually, I just want Metroid.

An Metroid: Other Yarn would imply a 2D/2.5D style game which is something the franchise desperately needs at this point (and hopefully keep the creep out of the game).

Pessimism. Soul crushing pessimism.

After all, everybody else is doing it. Why wouldn't they do it too? Especially for such an unlikely crossover like this.

There's pessimism, then there's lunacy. Nintendo seems to prefer avoiding those kinds of games period, they're not the kinds you'd want to make on consoles, and after FE's success with Intelligent Systems and Atlus working together I expect a proper game out of it.

Now mjr's pessimism, that seems more plausible.

Now you know why I referred to it as 'soul crushing'. I have a really bad habit of trying to find the absolute worst case scenario. And besides its not like 'less than an infinitesimal chance' == 'no chance in hell'. (Also, I really wanted to make that American Pie joke and the fighting game option had already been expended (plus what would you do if my batshit prediction had turned out to be the correct one?).)

The next question I have for this game though is will they be featuring new characters from both sides or will Marth and Roy be in it (and if so who do I need to fuse to them to make Seth and Sigrud Zigludo)?


A crossover that wouldn't have been as :psyduck: as Marth's and Mara's Magical Adventures will likely be (not that what we're getting is in any way a bad thing).

I can see some people not liking it, but the traveling was kind of the entire point.

I want a motorboat, dang it.

You got a steamship in Phantom Hourglass, although that does entail having to play PH instead of WW, but whatevs.
4029  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fire Emblem 3DS on: January 25, 2013, 11:03:04 PM
I've never played a Fire Emblem game before.  I'm considering jumping in with this one, but as I still have my Gamecube does anyone think the FE game on that system is worth the trouble?

Absolutely. I loved that game it has probably one of the best stories of the series (my favorite of the ones that have been localized so far, although Sacred Stones is a very close second). The Wii sequel isn't as good as the GC one, but it's solid if you end up liking it enough to get a sequel.

Yea, Path of Radiance is fantastic. The battle animations were a bit on the lackluster side, but story, characters, battle maps, art. Great place to dip your toes into the water, and probably cost effective if you can find it. Radiant Dawn is only okay, and really long. It does have some cool classes that we may not see again though. I personally think that Shadow Dragon for DS is the worst entry that has been released outside of Japan. Too easy, and it oddly rewards players for allowing their units to die as that is the only way to play all of the maps.

In other news, man I'm excited. Have I said that yet?

Shadow Dragon is also a remake of the first game which means that even with the updates added to modernize the game its still a 19 year old game at its heart. And to preempt mjrpgfan SD also didn't have any sort of scoring/ranking system which is apparently another major drawback (which, to be fair, does prevent those who play only for score like mjrpgfan from doing so since there's no longer any fixed performance goal to aim for, while those of us who like to play it our own way can ignore the pressure of obtaining perfection).

Radiant Dawn also has its share of clever ideas as well as its flaws. Most notable is the attempt at having you play from the perspectives of both sides of the conflict. The big problem stems from the fact that you spend a third of the game on one group of people, another third on another set of people, and the final third is everybody and their brother getting together to compete for the 12 or so spots on the endgame team with half the cast having fewer than 3 chapters since the first third of the game to catch up with (and some having fewer than 3 chapters of availability total). Still, the maps are quite varied for the most part with all of them having some sort of theme, feature, or alternate objective.

Ironically, taking the "suck" out of Kirby meant taking away a pretty major design element for him (I though everything else made the controls iffy; controlling "car" Kirby was messy).  The music sounded like it wanted to lull you to sleep.  The challenge wasn't really there.  The game was extremely short (without doing quests, you could probably have it done in one sitting).

I *do* respect the challenge though.  Even though you couldn't "die" per se,  to actually get "Gold" ranks (or 'S' or whatever) was actually really challenging.

I dunno, otherwise, the game didn't appeal to me.  I like the more faster paced Kirby games.  The game looked brilliant and had a lot of creative ideas, but the gameplay just wasn't as exciting.

Good thing Yoshi doesn't suck then.

I thought the new Star Trek movie was awful.  Didn't feel like Star Trek at all, just another mediocre action flick full of plot holes and inconsistencies.  And lens flare, lots of lens flare.

Of course, I don't see how Abrams can screw this one up any more than Lucas already did with the prequels...

I'm with you. But it had terrific casting.

Plus they ruined my favorite starship design ever.
= disgusting

= Yoda like

Two days/pages late but....

Hopefully they'll get the design right when it comes time for them to remake the Enterprise A then.

But seriously, if this turns out to be yet another useless, phoned in, bare naked, cash grabing, GREE/iOS, card game

We know basically nothing about this game, but the one thing we actually do know is that it's on Wii U.  So why would you even worry about that?

Pessimism. Soul crushing pessimism.

After all, everybody else is doing it. Why wouldn't they do it too? Especially for such an unlikely crossover like this.
4033  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New Xenoblade? on: January 25, 2013, 01:47:17 AM
It'd be nice if it were similar to white knight chronicles, where you create a character for use online and in the main story, but he/she doesn't impact the story directly. Granted WKC isn't the best example of a stellar single player experience, but it gets my point across.

I'd be okay with that if your character doesn't stand around like a schlub the whole time with only two characters acknowledging your presence. I got the impression the avatar was just tagging along and wouldn't take a hint.

If there was one thing I took away from the cutscenes in Xenoblade, it's that any type of character creator in this game is going to have a breast slider like WKC did. (My god Venea! Did your tits have to be front and center in every cutscene you were in? And Seven, you're not helping things either with your chest piece macguffin right on top of your cleavage window. Though at least you weren't jiggling around like Sharla was all the time.)

To be fair, you're only going to be in a shop for little more than a minute at best.
4035  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Abrams set to direct Star Wars VII on: January 24, 2013, 09:46:57 PM
Whatever sets he uses though will be enshrouded by lensflare and excessive bloom.

At least the ship designs can't be any worse than second trilogy's were.

Also, the force turns out to be comprised of Red Matter.
