That's pretty awesome, if true.  Zero no Kiseki is a different storyline than TiTS, right?   If so, Xseed has its work cut out for them.  

From what I've heard it's supposed to be a prequel of sorts.

It's not, some (probably mild) spoilers proved that isn't the case. Still, it's a new story entirely if not the start of a new arc (it's effectively Legend of Heroes 7 I believe) set in a place separate from the rest of the series.

Anyways, it sounds like this really is official, which is good.

News to me. I was under the impression that it took place prior to the events of Sora no Kiseki but in a different part of the world with only a few callbacks.

But then, I don't go looking up plot details for these games now that there's a chance that we could see them out here.

Of course there's no fucking way in hell we're seeing 7th Dragon 2020 out here given the fact that one of its character customization options is different voices which is impossible to localize given the lack of variety in NA VAs.

Although they could try to get away with what Atlus did with Endless Frontier even though the voiced dialog in that game consisted of not a small part of the game's total dialog and had no subtitles to fall back upon.

I need a better source for these things. *sigh*

Good Fucking Lord! What the Fuck is This Furry Shit Doing in a Thread I OP'd?

You know what? Rather than going off on a fucking tirade (since it looks like Eusis nipped this one in the bud) I'm just going to derail this into something other than sexed up shenanigans.

Like for instance, lets discuss this trailer reminding you jerks to go buy this game and support XSeeD in bringing over good JRPGs like Ys and TitS.


@Eusis: The anthropomorphic bullshit went on for over a decade and even into the PS2 era there were still attempts like Ratchet and Clank for a good example, and something like that Dingo with the boomerang which I can't think of the name of for a bad example, and of course Star Fox: Dinosaur Planet for an ugly example.

Necroing the thread for some good news.

http://www.siliconera.com/2011/09/27/the-legend-of-heroes-series-is-coming-to-playstation-vita-in-spring-2012/

The tl;dr is that having this ported to the PSV significantly increases our chances of seeing this localized.

There are so many things wrong with that picture. Unio implies(?) 1 but you're looking for 2 capsules. Second, it's good to see that No~el and Serah-chan have taken up the noble profession of drug peddling. Third, the quest giver looks like that guy from Shinobi-X (the drugs themselves are probably called Shinobix and are used to transform users into ninja, which is an incredibly stupid plan in of itself given the inverse law of ninjas where the more ninjas you have the less effective they are). And finally, while not stated, it's probably implied that the drugs are a rare drop of the common boar which means grinding for 3 hours for boar tusk ninja drug.

To the surprise of noone CT is hitting the PSN soon (if you live in Japan or shenanigan access to the JPSN).

I started playing Alice: Madness Returns, so far it's decently okay but the levels are just way too long. I also started DQ5 on my DS at work since it's been slow lately. I died in the first castle so I did what I do in every DQ: I grinded until I couldn't stand it anymore, so I have my guys at level 10 with all the best gear they could buy and steamrolled it.

... You died in the first castle. What.

He most likely died in the haunted manor even though there's an inn right there and you don't even really need that to get through the place.

You also don't need to worry about losing half your gold until later on, so you can just keep trying and trying until you actually clear it or simply gain enough gold to deck yourself out. Not much of a need to immediately start grinding.

Hell, by the time where losing money might be a concern you get access to a casino shortly thereafter and then you never need to buy your MC a weapon again (unless you don't want to bother cheesing the game vis-a-vis the casino).

Blood+ was the most boring shit I've ever seen. The entire 52 episodes were spent watching the Bishonen do everything while hoping that this is the episode for the arc where Saya shuts the fuck up and actually does something beyond complaining about having to fight or that she's tired. It doesn't really help that everybody who wasn't a villain was entirely just there for Saya to angst over or fall for in the most awkward way possible. It'll be amazing to see Branpresto do anything with that in that upcoming crossover JRPG that doesn't involve Saya being a worthless twat for 90% of it (among other things like giving S-cry-ed/My HiME an arc that ends in a way that isn't lame or completely batshit insane or getting a serviceable plot arc out of Sgt. Frog and Rune Soldier Louie (granted these are the same guys who can get Shinji Ikari to call out Jesus Yamato on his bullshit woes in SRW@3 so if anybody can turn an obnoxious and mostly worthless main character into an asskicker so if anybody can salvage Blood+ it's these guys)).

Tangent aside, Blood C once it get's going (if you ignore the fact that it fails the 3-episode test miserably) is pretty watchable. Nothing truly spectacular but serviceable in that Clamp sort of way. Don't know how it ends though.

Dwayne is my go-to name for all of the characters that I make.  Dwayne is also unabashedly ugly or weird in every iteration I make him.  I was just able to make him especially ugly here.

Proof that WKC2 is the greatest game ever made.  I almost finished hard mode in Catherine today.  Hopefully tomorrow I'll be nearing completion and can soon order WKC2.

Somebody spoiler the plot so that I know if it ever escapes the realm of painfully generic anime.

Code:
Bartandulus
needs to come back in the first scene half cyborg and Noel needs to slice him up XD

I'm suddenly having flashbacks of 2004/5's FMA's "The Archinator" who after getting half his body sucked up in a transmutation comes back as a completely ridiculous and non-threatening half cyborg who spends the rest of the anime getting jobbed by a version elevated side character and a version nerfed major character.

Fake Edit: Of course I am an idiot and forget that this is a reference to an anime but not the one I mentioned above. In penance, I suggest that the guy in the spoiler tags brings his daddy along to get curbstomped alongside him. Also Fang should be running around in yellow pants and a pink shirt with the words Bad Man printed on the back.

and then Vanille dumps Hope and starts dating Fang. Later it's revealed that Noel is Vanille and Fang's (adopted) child and Lightnings gonna die from incurable disease in the future.

Of course it can only end with Lightning diking it out with the big bad until Lightning throws in the towel and/or dies letting Serah-chan take over in defeating the big bad and thus succeeding her as champion of wherever they are, while Noel goes back to the future to trash the versions of the big bad that's trashing his future; thus concluding the FFXIII saga (unless of course Squeenix revisits FFXIII again where it's seven years in the future, Serah-chan has enrolled in highschool while moonlighting as a costumed superhero when Lightning suddenly comes back to life for the day to participate in a tourney that gets horribly derailed by the minions of an evil wizard seeking to revive an ancient evil created by the evil wizard's evil ancestor).

At least we can look forward to Lightning and Snow both trying desperately and failing miserably at getting their driver's licenses, and in the case of an FFXIII-3; Lightning and Fang joining together to be transformed by the villain of the hour into the galaxy's most powerful chocolate flavored jawbreaker and then proceed to curb-stomp said villain of the hour.

My problem with the game is that its all over the place (for every Dead Sea or Chronopolios there's annoying environmental messages with the Blue Dragon Isle, Hydra Marshes, and anything having to do with Marblue and meandering plot points that don't really serve any purpose like anything having to do with Lynx and SS Zebless), a wasted opportunity for alternate dimensions shenanigans, that its slow as fuck (though the NG+ Fast Forward feature helps alleviate that a bit), and that the plot is either just there or is an incomprehensible mess.

That said its still one of the most gorgeous looking PSX games ever made, its good points (Dead Sea, Chronopolios) are really good, and the music track (not including the basic battle theme or SS Zebless's theme) are also really good.
4140  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Next Vanillaware Title to be Grand Knight History on: September 22, 2011, 11:45:54 PM
more proof that xseed is cool

I didn't need any more evidence of that.

I do think XSEED is my favorite niche publisher now. Sorry Atlus

Fixed. This makes me happy.

To be frank I find it somewhat baffling to consider NISA your favorite anyway. Enough stupid translation mess ups and outright stupid decisions like not localizing the new part of Rhapsody for the DS version and failing to catch a critical, reliably tripped bug in AT2, I guess you just have to really like their selection. The other part of why it's hard for me to understand admittedly, only a few titles from NISA are ones I really want, and no where near the degree of the best of Atlus titles or a good chunk of Xseed's output.

True but given how these days Atlus only really localizes like three or so titles beyond any SMT or Persona games they crank out. Anyone with burnout on Persona Spam hasn't even a handful of titles to look forward to whereas NISA at least has the potential to pull some kind of surprise out of their asses even if it ends up as some shoddily localized mess. For instance I could see either XSeed or NISA localize Over My Dead Body or whatever it might end up being called long before Atlus gets around to it.

That said, if NISA was going to surprise us with such a game they'd only get around to it after localizing all the Hyper Dimensional Neptunia's and the like.
