Welp. This confirms that yes D, MX, RRR, and that manga with Ing in it are contributing to plot for the game.

Also, a THIRD Dynamic Guardian General!? How the fuck is it going to join the other two's combo attack? Does the horse really need wings or something? Or is it just going to provide their equivalent of the R-Gun or an even bigger and more ridiculous sword? Or perhaps both. (Ten Thousand Feet of Steel getting all Pegasus on all their asses!)

1)   Either Super Mario Bros., Duck Hunt, or The Legend of Zelda. Most likely Zelda 1.
2)   Depends. Actually why is there a favorite character when further down we have favorite protags and antags?
3)   Zelda 2: The Adventure of Link.
4)   One of those porn games would be nice. Unfortunately the closest I've gotten so far is with SRW:OGSaga.
5)   No comment.
6)   Too many to count. But lets narrow it down to just every idiot shonen hero ever and be done with it.
7)   Don't have one in particular but Kaine and Emil is close enough I guess.
8)   Way too many to be specific. Mostly obvious ones like FFVI, Secret of Mana, Chrono Trigger, Nier, ect....
9)   Secret of Mana's ending. Although DQV's second time skip and Amanda's Death Scene are right up there.
10) The Mega Man Zero titles or the SuperNES X ones.
11) SuperNES.
12) Whatever games I end up making.
13) Too many to list.
14) N/A
15) No Picture Available.
16) Why is this even a question? Oh well, Vagrant Story had some well directed ones.
17) Delita from FFT.
18) Main Character from DQV.
19) No comment.
20) Action Adventure RPGs (as they were formerly known as, now 2D Zelda like). SRPGs as a follow up.
21) Either Nier or Dragon Quest V.
22) Legend of Mana. At first because it felt nothing like SD2, by the end it was due to being a bad side scrolling beat-'em-up. Also Sword.
23) Dragon Quest VIII.
24) Most favorite would be either Zeldas 1 or 3, SoM, DQV, FFT, the MMZero series, DQVIII, and so on.
25) Four Heroes of Light once I finish up Radiant Historia.
26) DQVIII. With Nier as a followup.
27) Depends on what one refers to as epic. Most epic death scene would be from FFV for example.
28) Nintendo at this point. All the others are either dead or soulless corporate shells.
29) I try to approach games with an open mind so I don't really have one. I guess that Super Mario Crossover flash game.
30) The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past.

Dammit. And here I was hoping for an OG3 announcement.

Also WHAT THE FUCK is Flickerei Geist doing outside of Real Robot Regiment!?! Or that Branpesto even remembered Real Robot Regiment to begin with!? Also also is that Ing Egret in that pic with that Hucky put together with Duct Tape and Super Glue? What....?

On the plus side Katina and Russel finally get some personalized Gespies (also Kai but he's always Gespy Kicking things anyways), and it looks like we'll be seeing some Alpha 2 Ibis and Tsugumi as well.

That said, it'd be awesome if it could come out here. (Also if they manage to include one of those Huckebein's in a hat from the anime.)


Edit:
http://www.siliconera.com/2011/05/17/the-2nd-super-robot-taisen-og-will-land-on-playstation-3/

Holy shit, it is Ing! Also SRW D represent! Plus it's not a rehash of OG2 but something else.


Edit MKII:
http://www.siliconera.com/2011/05/17/the-2nd-super-robot-taisen-og-to-have-a-grand-limited-edition-package/

JESUS MOTHER FUCKING CHRIST!!!!! I am not paying well over $400 dollars for the fucking limited edition.

GREAT! So I have that to look forward to, lol. And yeah, I'm a couple of acts into Mercedes storyline. At first I HATED her but now I am loving that bow. Still unreal how cheap some of the deaths are though, I cannot imagine this game if there was a expert/hardcore mode...or is there? I never paid attention when I started it...I do like the game so far though, it can just be seriously annoying!!!

There is a hard mode, but the difference is hardly noticeable. Enemies take more hits and you take more damage and that's it.
4160  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Soul Calibur V on: May 17, 2011, 12:33:10 AM
Mostly because of dat back.

Also it's far too soon to be making guesses as to whom the extra characters are. We don't even know what the 'big' games for each console of 2012 will be yet.

Not sure I've ever seen as many cheap ways to die as in Odin Sphere, I swear, miss one attack and it bites you in the ass.

There's two or three  underlying problems that cause this.

- You can get knocked back by enemies, but that they can't be knocked back by you.
- The 'attack too much and get stunned' thing.
- Potentially, the limited viewing area/weird enemy spawn-in behavior.

Asymmetrical knockback is probably the biggest problem, though, and the second reason I never got past really early on in the rabbit's chapter (the main reason I quit being having to replay those godawful heat/cold damage stages again. It's nice that you have an alchemy system. Forcing the player to grind up some stupid potions to overcome a totally arbitrary cherry tapping bullshit thing that's only present for the sake of being present is just stupid design, though).

You forgot the godawful slowdown. Pieces of debris and other attacks that don't go away upon contact will happily score their hits on you while they slowly chug through your beautifully rendered flesh. It's the leading factor behind that one boss (well actually two) fight being the single worst fight in the game (the running up factors involve goddamn wizards (they have one of the most obnoxious gimmicks in the game to fight effectively, you're seriously lucky to have stopped when you did because they don't show up until the bunny dude's final chapter) and being forced to fight it with the worst character in the game).


You guys have got to be reading my mind (and it's good to know I'm not simply a shitty player at this game), because you are both talking about the EXACT spot I am now at, Pooka Prince (Cornelius) last chapter. My God those wizards are simply ridiculous. Last night before bed I finally threw the controller across the room and quite. But I WILL finish this (at least this chapter, then we'll see). I just cranked up the PS2 so...update shortly!!


EDIT: 45 mins later I finally beat that God forsaken level, this game will be the death of me...or at least my damn controllers!!!

Hopefully, you've realized by now just how fond of repeating locations and fights this game is. On the plus side, you're about to start Mercedes' story which is good because she's by far the best character in the game (gameplay wise). On the minus side, you're nowhere near the fight that I was actually talking about. Cornelius is not the worst character in the game (regardless of just how ineffectual it may be the Bunny Buzzsaw of DOOM!!! is still ridiculously awesome), and that particular fight will make you loathe wizards on a whole new level.

Lo and behold, new copies of Dragon Quest V, for retail price:

http://www.amazon.com/Dragon-Quest-Heavenly-Bride-Nintendo-DS/dp/B001NJMMHG/ref=pd_sim_vg_3



Aw. So much for me being able to say that I own a copy of a rare game. They did the same thing with FFT too.

That said, like FFT before it, it's better that this game gets to be experienced by more gamers. It really is the best game in the series.

I am well aware of the situation. I'm just simply stating my complete and utter disbelief at this turn of events. This was something I greatly anticipated back in '06-'07 when the Wii was brand new and the promise of games flowing plentifully on the VC, not in '11 when we're on the eve of the unveiling of the Wii's successor and the VC has since proven itself to be an utter disappointment.

The only games I've gotten from the VC thus far are Sin and Punishment (was already fully in English, down to the voice acting), Castlevania Dracula X: Rondo of Blood (completely untranslated), Ogre Battle: March of the Black Queen (because I didn't want to track down a physical copy, though I have since tracked down the PSX port), River City Ransom (from the reimbursement deal offered to those who purchased the Internet Browser), Gunstar Heroes, Shining Force 1, & Puyo Puyo (from the one and only sale ever on VC games, the last of which is completely untranslated, and thus completely superfluous as I've already had Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine on the Genesis).

The tl;dr is that there are other games that have come out on the VC that would've been worth the effort of receiving a localization like Rondo of Blood, but didn't get one (although that particular case had voice acting and was better off left alone). As for Puyo Puyo that's more of the case of it being Puyo Puyo and thus not worth the effort.

I'm on chapter 34 in SRT: OG 1. I have SP Regen on most of the pilots this time around. When I first played it 3-4 years ago, I didn't have SP Regen on anyone so I was stuck at chapter 39.

My copies of SRT: OG 2 and SRT Z2 should be here by the end of the month. Gonna have to brush up on my Japanese a lil bit before playing Z2.

If you can read Japanese and are ordering SRW games off the internet, why the hell are you getting OG2 instead of OGG? OGG is OG1 + OG2 + a little bit extra remastered for the PS2. Seriously. Get it.

OGs though, isn't even worth it.

Also the trick to Chapter 39 in OG1 is to bring EN Drain missiles. In fact, the entire endgame revolves around having EN Draining Missiles. (Ah! OG1. Where I didn't have a fucking clue as to what I was doing and what anything meant aside from higher numbers being better and ended up having Ryoto and his pathetic Astralion (or whatever it's called) lob half a dozen shots of Graviton Launcher per turn at whatever it was that I wanted to die now.)

Kenichiro Takaki, Half-Minute Hero (of 3D boobs)

Speaking of which....

What's so amazing about this is that it's coming on the VC. Usually when dealing with Japan only imports, and really, every other game released for the service, absolutely no changes are made to the Rom. It's been this archaic reasoning that's kept a LOT of Japan only games from continuing to ever see the light of day on the VC. Imagine all the games that could've come out for the VC had Nintendo allowed for localizations for games that didn't originally have one. Bahamut Lagoon, the Romancing SaGa trilogy, Seiken Densetsu 3, Fire Emblems 1 - 5, Treasure of Rudra, Live-A-Live, Treasure Hunter G, Ys IV & V, Final Fantasy's 2, 3, & 5, and so on....

But of course, this is all wishful thinking because we're far more likely to end up with maybe the options screen translated badly and nothing else.

popped in deadly premonition...


not sure if I should say:

...uh

wow

lol

or

exit to dashboard

The first two. You shouldn't even be considering the third one.

Through granted, the combat segments are balls, but the cast is excellent and it has a great plot to it. Plus it's basically Twin Peaks meets Majora's Mask which goes together like a Turkey, Jam, and Cereal Sandwich. It really is up there with Nier as 2010's Diamond in the Rough of the Year.


Played Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth.  Someone traded it in, and I took it.
When I first played this game, I didn't understand, I was young and immature to the Tri-Ace cacophony of different skills and item creation options and all that bullshit.

Trying to get the A ending... it's making me nervous.  The list of requirements is both scary and almost unreasonable difficult to make Lenneth happiest by the ending.  C'est la vie.  The game has been pretty easy, sad I didn't pick the Hard Mode... I might still, it's just a matter of re-scrolling through so much damn text.

Actually Hard Mode is the easiest of the game. A lot of the prizes exclusive to HM easily outweigh the loss of EXP and enemies give more to begin with.
