My problem with this is why their wasting their time on their current vision quest instead of going after a more menacing word like lame. I'm pretty sure that word is corrupting our children and making them into insensitive ignorant racist bigots who belittle crippled individuals with every use of the word. Plus it's not like people should read all of those books that resort to the using such crass and unrefined dialog until its fixed. Yep, all of those countless books that use the word lame because we've been writing about that poor repressed demographic since the first one of those lame people was encountered by western civilization.

Of course, it's far more likely that they'll go after the word dick first, and welp, now suddenly well over half of the RPGFan site and everyone on it is considered insensitive ignorant racist bigots.

It's from Japan. What else could it be.

I wish I could get excited since like 4 of these series are ones I've wanted to see, but I find that the only SRW games I play any more are the hand-held ones. If I have time to actually sit down and play a console game I have a gigantic backlog to catch up on and SRW isn't anywhere near the top of that pile.

But, hm, GL, Code Geass, 00, E7, and (finally) VOTOMs...might have to play this one. Z pretty much perfected the squad system, so hopefully they can deliver that quality here.

Unfortunately they don't seem to be using the squad system from Z in this one. Don't know what if anything they're going to be replacing it with.

Fortunately (or much more likely unfortunately) this one's going straight to the PSP so you may find yourself playing this one after all.

If you've ever played an SRW game then you already know everything you need to know about Queen's Blade PSP as it's basically SRW but with giant tits in place of giant robots.

Add Queen's Gate to that once it comes out.

Bishonen Jesus?


Question? Is Zounds pronounced like its spelled (X+Sounds), or is it pronounced as Zoonds (X+Wounds)?


My avie is Dark Lord from Sword of Mana. My title and sig reference the fact that the game tries at the last second to paint him up as a sympathetic villain who was badly misunderstood despite the fact that he's pretty much living up to his namesake right up until that point with no evidence supporting the contrary (aside from the fact that he is a maldova or some shit which makes him evil by default). Of course they use this same excuse for every major boss not named Julius (including Mr. Lee, Medusa, and her son).

They also made the main character a prince for no loving reason, Willie gets to live, and the Mana Sword (like in every iteration since SD3) was reduced to a mere plot device used to fuel the cast's power of friendship (I don't even think they kept the environmental PSA from the original either) in a cutscene leaving you to take down Julius with your Crystal Sickle. The tl;dr is that Squeenix did a lot of stupid shit to Sword of Mana and the plot was not exempt from this.

DQIX: Welp, this week just saved me 75k in gold. Didn't get the Vesta Gauntlets, the Seed of Skill, or any of the other cool stuffs (much like last week), but at least I'm three reasonably priced Chronocrystals further along.

You want something that would actually interest SRW fans?


And it's been confirmed by the man himself.

-Bullet hell shmups
-All the characters are female

Not necessarily in that order.

They are genuinely fun games though, and have great music. Beautiful bullet patterns, too.

Additionally, there's a lack of canon personalities to the point where running in-jokes have become the personalities of most of the cast.

It also helps that the creator has pretty much given the fandom creative control over most aspects outside of the main game series.
4614  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Which Final Fantasy Has The Best Story and Why? on: January 05, 2011, 06:01:09 PM
I'll admit, I liked FFT's plot the most. Fantasy retelling of the War of the Roses that gets derailed into save the world JRPGness was at least half good and they didn't really mishandle the JRPG part too much either.
4615  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Super RPGFan Game Journal IV - The New Warriors: The Revenge The Movie The Game on: January 05, 2011, 05:53:55 PM
FF15 will be played on a hologram table like this:

In that case, let the wookie win by not playing it.

Anyways, picked up Pokemon Pearl again. Caught a new pokemon (really need to trade or get my hands on a GBA Pokegame as I'm almost out of field catches and level grinding is boring).

Space docking is brutal too...

I thought that was called a Manhattan transfer. Must be an East Coast thing.

Wait. I thought that the Manhattan transfer was what a Rusty Venture really was. Or at least along those lines.
4617  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Devil Survivor Overclock announced for 3DS (Remake of DS with added stuff) on: January 05, 2011, 04:37:22 PM
Partly, this makes me glad that I've held off on getting Devil Survivor up til now (and why I didn't think of getting it earlier today is still beyond me but whatever). Partly, this feels like a FES update at best (which doesn't matter since I don't have the original version to begin with). And partly, due to the way that Nintendo handhelds work, it may be awhile before I pick this up by virtue of holding out for the 3DSLite or whatever it'll be called.

It shouldn't be a problem to change it, Eus.  I shaved the numbers off Kim's username and nobody died. :P

Oh, well, post/PM away then!

Wouldn't a password change be enough?

I'm guessing to go the extra step to throw off whoever did it, but I don't doubt changing the password is more important.

Basically this. I've already changed the password but I suck at being creative so the password didn't change that much. Basically I wanted the change for insurance and because I have been keeping a low profile but it gets annoying when there are so many topics I want to reply to but can't.

As for a possible name, I'm thinking Aeolus (that was the name of that guy from that 90's Hercules show, right?). Also a common JRPG name so it's relevant at least.

Edit: Thanks for the help. Works like a charm.

After the fiasco with my account hijacking (thankfully hasn't been repeated yet) and the fact that I don't think anyone got that my username is a joke based off of an old 8-Bit Theater strip (not like it was very funny to begin with), I have been thinking that I could use a change in my RPGFan life with a new user name.

What arcane ritual would I have to perform to make that change, if it is at all possible?
4620  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Video game people answer questions about 2010 and possibility of Nier in 2011 on: January 02, 2011, 08:21:08 AM
Er, I'm sorry.  I meant to say that what FFXIII failed to do was make me *want* spinoffs in that world.  The spinoffs are surely coming...

Well, the FFXIII spin-offs actually won't be set int he same world, whatever consolation that is (while making this more baffling). They only share the same mythos apparently.

Anyways, Cavia wasn't really shut down, it was just absorbed into AQ Interactive, BUT as noted in the NieR thread the director left, and after reading Grimoire Nier it does leave me worried about what they can do with it if they do make it into a series. Maybe SE will hire the director themselves, at least on a freelance basis, and make it a non-issue?

That, or (more likely) they'll take the Drakengard 2 route which was handled by Squeenix with only the scenario writer from the first game and featured a generic whiny JRPG protagonist working together with the apocalypse summoning villain from the previous game to kill the protagonists of the previous game to cause the apocalypse again and then go supersayian to then kill the apocalypse monster. At least Drakengard 2 also featured Caim hitting Death hard enough to kill it which was hilarious as hell.
