LOL Ys is mostly running around and slashing things with minimal cutscenes and story. You had to concentrate?

When it involves not dying horribly to bosses or platforming for hidden stuffs.

But then again I also tend to avoid playing on Easy Modo, so there's that as well.

And it's own mobile game too.

Except that Ys is kinda terrible to play while on the go since it requires a lot of concentration and skill and road trips tend to make concentrating rather difficult. Go grab some TitS instead.

I'm downloading the cinematic mod for half life 2, I can't believe how good it looks, check out this comparison:





Unbelievable.

There's also a ton of new versions of Alix:



Modding is definitely one of the best things about PC gaming, there's some unbelievable stuff out there, you can rediscover your games over and over.

All I see is nipples :D

And a mustache. D:

It nothing else it's impossible not to appreciate some of the meta-jokes that have been born from it.

For example: If you thought the falling wiener was over the top funny before...

I didn't knw about this video. Brilliant! Wonder what else people can come up with with all the crazy scenes this anime has. And honestly I don't think one needs to know much about japanese culture to got the most of this show.

Maybe this

Finished watching Space Runaway Ideon, but of course I now need to watch Be Invoked because I can't just leave it at that. I need to watch all those characters die dammit.
4087  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Would You Recommend Any of These Over Xenoblade? on: October 17, 2011, 01:44:23 AM
I've yet to play Xenoblade. Its on my list of games to pick up eventually though. Despite not having played it, I get the feeling that its being elevated to epic status partly because of how awful its competition has been this generation. The question is, how much of a factor in its popularity this actually is. Its something I plan on answering myself once I finally get around to playing it.

To me it's FFXII (not XIII) done right gameplaywise plus the guys behind Xenogears/Baten Kaitos are also behind this so expect new and different things in a comprehensive setting.

Anything "to game" is usually a disaster (there are rare instances of good adaptations, but every rule has exceptions), so they can stay in Japan for all I care.

I don't know. That Aliens DS game that just came out seems pretty damn good right now. Though granted I haven't seen much of a good videogame adaption of an anime that isn't a mash up like SRW or those Queen's Blade/Gate games (which are also like SRW).

Man this game is pretty.  I really wanna play Twilight Princess right now... but I realized that graphically the game is of a much more "grim" aesthetic.  I adore the pallet of colours this game uses both in scenery and even dungeons

One thing I loved about Wind Waker is that even though you have that huge ocean, surprisingly there is no water level.
I personally hate water levels in pretty much every game and even when they are not bad per say, they are just way worst than the regular one. On the top of my head I can't think of one game with a good water level.

What I can think is one of my worst experiences as a gamer: Ocarina of Time's Water Temple.

Probably because it was cut. At least the Tower of the Gods has a kinda water based entrance.

Also LttP's water dungeon was probably its most tame Dark World dungeon aside from Thieves Den.

And getting back on track of the topic, it looks like Link's sporting some Zora level swimming in that preview. Fuck Yeah.

If you live in the US then maybe Resonance of Fate due to the fact that you don't need to jump through so many hoops to even get your hands on the bloody thing. And I say maybe if you aren't immediately repulsed by silly anime antics or a one note combat system. That said, the silly anime antics in RoF are actually silly rather than the usual stuff from Disgaea that you've probably seen a dozen times before or crap like the dinner dance from Infinite Undiscovery; this is because the game makes no bones about the fact that you're going to be non stop flipping out John Woo style with guns with so many barrels, magazines, and scopes slathered all over with the occasional side mission like chapter 11 that cranks the silliness up to 11.

The rest of your games aren't even worth your time even if you live in the US.

WKC2: Sequel to a thoroughly bland and disappointing game.
HDN: Moe-blobs and silly anime in the Disgaea sense that if you've seen before probably won't impress you again.
Enchanted Arms: One of the first JRPGs this console generation and it shows.
AT3: Bad even by its predecessors' standards; you shouldn't even be looking at this unless you've played the other two first.
Trinity: All I know about this is that it plays the 3 man adventure party straight as an arrow in some sort of ARPG; could be Hack & Slash RPG; not worth it either way.
Atelier Rorona: Moe-blobs makes stuffs; better done in later games, pass.
FFXIII: The biggest anime; probably not worth it even with a sequel incoming.
Oblivion: Why get this when in less than 2 months Skyward Swordrim will fall from the sky.

If you live in the UK then why in god's name are you even asking? Get Xenoblade now.

Check this out!

LOH as an anime.... I'm not sure whether to be excited at the prospect, or discouraged by some of the "game to anime" adaptation blunders in the not so distant past... Interesting regardless though.

Given how much of an anime the games are to begin with; it isn't entirely unfeasible for the series to successfully make the transition from game to anime.


Damn it! It didn't sell well so now the 2nd installment is being held hostage. Part of this on Xseed though, If it wasn't for RPGFan I would never even known this game existed.

It doesn't help that not many people in general are very interested in a very anime JRPG series from the early aughts. Granted it's not bad anime (of which there are tons) but its practically the definition of niche market.

Also Gamestop is the only place to get these games but only if you preorder from them (as I found out with the Ys 1 & 2 PSP port) and I hate preordering from them in general since it means more trips to and from the store (which may or may not even have the bloody things) and more harassment with crap like Game Informer rag subscriptions and so on.

That said, since I've already done my part in supporting XSeeD in purchasing TitS 1, I'll need to pick other games to support them with the likes of Grand Knights History and such.

Welcome to the pit of despair every SRW fan has been in since they've first heard about it (though granted, it's more of taking a bunch of animes with a common element and smooshing them together than just an anime to game adaption).

Also admittedly most adaptations aren't really all that good anyway.

Additional: No PS2 Berserk. :qq:
4093  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Guild01: That's a lot of talent for one little game on: October 15, 2011, 09:18:50 AM
Edit: Here's a trailer that covers all four parts in greater detail.

Looks like Crimson Shroud is basically going to be a D&D style rule book + some rudimentary tools and means to actually playing it out on your 3DS's (i.e. imagine four 3DS equipped players standing next to a cliff sitting around a table RPing with some complimentary material (pens, graph paper, maybe some figurines or AR cards, possibly some dice, ect). Christ, I'm already wanting this.

Maiden Liberation looks to be hilariously Suda-ish.

The others are ehh but you're getting them for free at this point (provided all of this actually leaves Japan in the first place).

Come for the dark fantasy; stay for the 3D shooter.

Just fell back in love with Drakengard. I summoned Arioch and the first thing I hear is, "WHERE ARE MY CHILDREN?!" I really wish that Leonard, Arioch, and their pact beasts actually showed up in the story sometime though. It's annoying not seeing them.

How do I make my partners use magic?

If I remember correctly it's the same as using magic as Caim except that you charge it up first.

Oh and they'll show up during cut scenes later on. Ya' can't miss 'em.


Actually, as far as I know Nintendo ONLY handled publishing/distribution. Translation was still SE's call, and in that case DQIX was outsourced to Plus Alpha while DQVI was outsourced to 8-4 (fitting really, given the co-founder wrote this awhile back on 1up). Still, if they translated FE internally and didn't release it because DQIX and Vi filled up their RPG quota that'd probably qualify for some frustration, but I really doubt that's the case at all.

Shows how much I actually know about localization issues.
