Generally I am against censorship, but there are exceptions. GameXplain made a short video about the changes between the Japanese and English versions and it literally comes down to two things and only two things. The bikini costumes on Lin cover her up a bit more (remember she is only 13 in the game that wasn't changed, however the bikini's are unchanged for the rest of the female cast), and the bust slider was removed. GameXplain says that is it, the only two changes made to the entire game. Meanwhile gamefaq's is turning into 4chan over this, and it's highly depressing. I used to really enjoy chatting with people over there :(

Because seriously, their message boards have been devolving into a cascade of shitposting every time something releases since the start of the millennium. This is nothing new or different or at all noteworthy.

Now with some character bios.

from watching the trailer and extrapolating, I assume. they're usually pretty formulaic in how they demonstrate new characters' moves.

This. Plus, those would be the moves I'd use for Cloud's B commands given that Limit Breaks and choice of weapon were basically the only mechanical things distinguishing one FFVII character from another. :V With that set up, the only thing Cloud is missing is Meteor Rain (and Cherry Blossom for you FFT aficionados), and I didn't spot that at all during the announcement trailer. The rest of his moveset might either be based upon his various attack animations from using different Materia (like Deathblow, Quadra Slice, Long-Range, etc), or on his Dissidia moveset, I have to rewatch the trailer to be sure (and maybe a Dissidia LP).

I may've said this before but like

On the one hand, I love DQ7 and I'd /love/ to see it get a proper translation.

On the other hand, I worry that the 3DS version's just gonna be a bunch of

<Gabo> OY GUV
<Maribel> GUV.
<Maribel> * long string of increasingly forced puns *

The British accents were cool in 8 but the new naming conventions started getting uncomfortably WDly. Although I mean nothing can be worse than the nadir that was DQ4DS's Russian acceFUCK YOU SQUENIX.

*looks up Barins*

At least you could save yourself some effort on that front by playing the DS version because 'lol party chat' (at least the Android port included it).

And on that note, I wonder if they've ended up cutting the party chat out of VII as well (though I would happily welcome the accents if only to spice up the party chat dialogue beyond "Hey Hero, there is a thing!; Did you notice that thing, Hero?; Hero, did you get that thing I sent you?").

Frankly, the Bust Slider is nothing compared to the removal of Tharja's Trophy in Smash 4 3DS, and I'm far more worried about what kind of hacksaw they took to FE:Fates than this (I suspect that there's going to be a lot more 'Companions' this time around).

That said, I can only hope that the Bustly Default size is enough to mimic KOS-MOS's, as that's who I'm going to make for my first run's MU.

More importantly though:

What's 'your voice' on the matter.
51  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Langrisser: Reincarnation coming Stateside? on: November 15, 2015, 01:08:30 PM
The last Langrisser game that achieved critical acclaim was Langrisser 5 for the Saturn in 1997. After that, the original team migrated over to Atlus to create the Growlanser series, and later lend a hand on Devil Survivor 1&2, while Masaya outsourced Langrisser to a company called Santa Entertainment who went on to make a bad Dragon Force clone with the license for the Dreamcast. So uhh, I guess play the Atlus games if you're looking for a really great follow-up? Growlanser IV Wayfarer of Time on PSP is pretty excellent.

But really, total lol at Reincarnation. "Seek the legendary sword! The Langrisser? Nope, the Excalibur!" WAT

Don't forget the attempt Masaya made to make a Langrisser MMO. It never even got off the ground.

At least the Langrisser not being around would make sense if this game wasn't taking a massive dump over the rest of the series' lore (since it departed for its home planet at the end of Der's Good Path).
52  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Langrisser: Reincarnation coming Stateside? on: November 15, 2015, 06:22:13 AM

Yeah, I saw that go by the other day. Wasn't aware that they also brought back hidden items, but I kinda assumed they did because they were badly ripping off everything else from Der Langrisser.

That said, that article is pretty much in line with what I saw during that one live stream I saw. This game is almost Lunar: Dragon Song levels of bad (at least Re:Incarnation Resurrection had some kind of base game to build off of (and a good one at that) rather than L:DS's random/meaningless bullshit).
53  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Legend of Zelda Topic (Latest: Twilight Princess HD in March '16) on: November 14, 2015, 10:45:43 PM
But you know what. I want Nintendo to remake Adventure of Link. That's one game that I think could be fantastic with an updated story and modern HD graphics. Alas, tis but a pipe dream.

The problem with this is the fact that you already have the best knife fighting simulator. Plus, you know that they're just going to cram it with 'Zelda Lore' and make the game feel far less of an 80s high adventure anime. What they could do instead, would be to make a ALBW-style sequel set in Zelda II's Hyrule and have you rescue Zelda 1's Zelda again (instead of the 'first' Zelda; thanks for retconning this OoT/SS) from some new kind of curse (maybe a Petrification curse, or maybe a Stop, Paralysis, Poison or Confuse curse) and you have to collect the '4th' Triforce to rescue her.

Finally at the actual, for real this time, no take backsies, final dungeon of Tales of Phantasia.  Been a good experience, though it probably could have ended about 4 or 5 hours ago (and for a game thats <40 hours long, that's saying something).  I am immediately jumping into Tales of Destiny once I wrap this one up.

That's a statement that could apply to any given Tales of Game. At least Dhaos was the best possible "We totally mean it this time!" final boss to end that game on.

I say this because no other Tales of Game has an Antagonist that's nearly as well established or well written as Dhaos was; with maybe one guy that comes close. The average Antagonist for this series is either some bozo who randomly shows up at the eleventh hour, or is somebody who's mentioned occasionally but never even bothers to leave his Cathedral of Evil.
55  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Pokemon R/B/Y coming to 3DS! on: November 14, 2015, 07:33:19 PM
People give Brock too much credit. Onix's Special stat is so low you can use not very effective special moves and that still does like a billion damage, and his Onix has no rock or ground type moves to hit you back with.

The problem is that because its Gen 1, the only Pokemon that would have access to any kind of Special move at that point is your Starter and Butterfree's uber early Confusion (between the early Evolution gains and that, Butterfree is practically Gen 1's Jagen (to borrow a fellow Nintendo series term) though Pidgeot and Ratticate have slightly better longevity), while everything else has either Scratch, Tackle, Growl, Tail Whip, Gust (which was considered Normal until at least Gens 2 or 3) or Poison Sting (which is both Type Disadvantaged and have a really low Poison proc chance).

So yeah, even Charmander's Ember will run roughshod over Onix and his stupid Bide, but if you let him faint or didn't level him high enough, then you're going to be chipping at that blockhead for a while.

It's as if there are so many tumors in her left leg it's about to explode. Also, why are her boobs bigger than her face? I don't think that's how fat distribution works...

Nevermind the boobs, her neck is larger than her head and has no goddamn chin whatsoever. Also she's got a pelvic bone three feet wide.

Speaking of which, considering that Beyond the Beyond, Shining Wisdom, Shining the Holy Arc, and Shining Force 3 all came out within a three year period and were made by the same dev team afaik (also caveat, I kind of like BtB and I never played SW, only saw Let's Plays. Which is why I never played it), the gulf between the level of detail and polish in the former two and latter two is totally incomprehensible.

I suppose its due to having more experience with what was going into those games than BtB's CRPG or SW's ARPG. Then again, going by the Golden Sun games, Camelot didn't learn their lesson on how to make a better CRPG.

I was not expecting that in the slightest, but cool nonetheless. Looked like he's an Ike clone, which makes sense and I'm totally cool with if that's the case. Looking forward to getting him!

Anyone else notice that they seemed to purposely avoid showing Cloud vs. Link in the announcement?

Actually, his b moves are completely unique, and he has a limit mode mechanic as well. His a moves are a mix of Shulk and Ike, but he's defimitely not a clone aside from the similarity of their weapon and all that- even more exciting! /D

For one, he's basically the only Anime Swordsman with actual Sword Beams. His four B moves are:

B Blade Beam (Blade Beam+)
B→ Cross Slash (Cross Slash + Braver)
B↑ Climhazard (Climhazard+)
B↓ Limit Break (Finishing Touch)
Final Smash: Omnislash

Items in (parentheses) are what you get under Limit Break. Also, I could be wrong about the assignments of B and B→.

Also, I'm disappointed that he doesn't have his Cherry Blossom Limit Break as well (or a dress???).

Ended up getting Ducktales (GB) and Rocket Knight Adventures yesterday. So far Ducktales (GB) is basically like Ducktales (NES) (in that, they're basically identical aside from the smaller screen size, lack of color and weaker sound chip).

Putting this in a link due to possibly being NWS (and definitely being NMS).
