So was there anything not completely godawful about Chaos;Head, or was it just the anime that was an unsalvageable trainwreck?

The atmosphere and sense of tension are probably the best aspects of Chaos;Head (both lost in the transition to anime). I'd say that the humorous bits are also pretty good. However, the story does melt down toward the end.

That was my problem with it. The idea of a murder mystery centered on a lame neurotic obsessive shut-in was interesting, but then I suppose that the writers remembered that their fanbase was exactly the same and decided to explain everything away with magic and that the main character was God with a harem or something awful. If the game has the same overall plot as the anime then it is indeed utter shit.

Of course, for me, the only thing worse than having an awful concept for something is to have a decent concept then promptly runs that shit into the ground. Namely because if it starts out awful then that's all I needed to know, but if it starts well then devolves into something awful then I'm much more likely to wind up getting robbed of 6 hours of my life.

Another godawful game of the decade. Lufia: Ruins of Lore.

Dekar may be slow but even he realized that he had much better things to do than to waste his time with your party, even if you were in the middle of trying to save the world from some utterly ineffectual threat at the time. At least all the bugs didn't keep it from being unbeatable (though the true winning move is to never play at all).

Putting aside amateur translations why doesn't any company at leas try and get rights to the good stuff? Fate/Stay Night, Chaos;Head (though with JAST partnering Nitro+ things are looking good.), Kara no Shoujo, Air, Kanon, Clannad, Little Busters!, ef- a fairy tale of the two, Eden*, Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, etc etc. I could go on and on. Though mind you, most of them HAVE had amateur patches done, so not all hope is lost.

Remember how everyone is all "BLUH-BLAH-BLOO NINTENDO SYSTEMS ARE KIDDY" and then Strange Journey comes out and everyone's running around screaming "Shit!!!!!111" and fighting giant animated piles of dicks and boobs?

Alternatively Nintendo is still kiddy and today's kids are just really awesome like that.

I blame the internet for corrupting our children.

I now present to you, the entirety of the watchable parts of TF2:RotF.

Does anyone else get a kick out of Ulala calling everyone a fucking bastard at the start of every fight? I don't want to appear childish for being amused by a swear word, it's just rare to see that attitude in RPGs and it makes me happy.

You should play Nier then if you enjoy that so much.

I haven't posted yet, so I'd post both the best and worst, but I have a question before doing so; do Independent RPG's and freeware RPG's also apply?


Why not?

Anyways, back to the derail at hand. Sword of Mana.

I find this depressing even though I wont be missing those Summon Night games any time soon.

LttP actually had a fairly decent water level all things considered (and ironically enough was the only dungeon in the game to actually use the Light World/Dark World mechanic in any meaningful way).

Sega's New Shining Game (added 10:48)
Sega's Shining series is coming to PSP through the all new Shining Hearts.

Revealed in this week's Famitsu, Hearts is a traditional RPG where you attempt to open the door to someone's heart via a heartful lifestyle. I don't know what that means either, but apparently you'll be helping out a girl who's lost both her heart and memory

The magazine introduces main character Rikku along with three sisters, Neris, Airy and Amaru. These character live a peaceful life on an island before heading off on a big adventure.

Shining Hearts looks to be along the lines of Shining Tears and Winds in that it features character designs from Tony. Speaking of Tony, check out Sega's Shining Wind pillow cases.

Oh goodie. More yoinking swords out of the chests of JRPG Princesses.

One of my fave cartoons, ever. The last episode with the time travelling plot was one of the best eps in the shows' history.

Now THAT was the kind of episode that I've been waiting to see from this new season.

Makes good use of the setting, loaded with references both easily identifiable and sorta obscure, humorously skews the literary work the plot is based on, and makes it back in time to a breakfast of smoked kipper.

DQIX: Trashed the Trauminator. Got some really swank shoes and a level 50 treasure map out of the deal. Still stuck on Lleviathan mk II though.

Out of all the things this game did wrong, this was its worst crime.
