4801  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Konami Pre-E3 Show 2013, June 6th on: May 29, 2013, 12:25:25 PM
I'd be piss happy if they made another side-scroller Castlevania.
Or Suikoden....but uh, yeah.

We'll be lucky if they talk about anything other than social media games and MGSV.

Honestly, we're wasting our time on this thread. This is just going to be another sterile prerecorded video with, at best, another Mega64 sketch to break up the monotony of the non-announcements and the non-games. Anything Konami has going for it will be displayed by at least one other presentation before the end and likely more thoroughly as well.

(and I can't HELP but imagine what whack reason there's a pseudo-Serah villain in gothic clothes....wth)

Loli-goth and JAPAN!!! Those are the only reasons you could ever need.

Been rewatching Code Geass myself. Watching the dub this time since I might as well mix it up. Been a few years but I still have the same problems I've had with the show as the first time I watched it. When it's good, it's really good, and when it's bad, it's really fucking bad.

I'm sort of curious, what are the parts that people consider to be "good"



Seriously, Lulu being the scene gobbling ham that he was is half the reason why I watched the show (the other half consisting of watching him nearly getting hoisted by his own petard before bullshitting his way out of it or failing spectacularly and watching him slink away while the fireworks fly) and what kept me watching even during the dumbass school episodes, anytime the Geass plot showed up in the second season, the China arc, and afterwords when everybody and their brother started getting midseason upgrades out the ass every episode.

In short, it's a lot like Death Note where you were watching it more for Kira's antics and crazy circuitous schemes than for anything else.

Fallout - it's already destroyed.

FF6
How is FF VI *not* about defeating an insane all-powerful being to restore hope to the world and release its denizens from fear?  I'm pretty sure that counts as saving. 

Yeah but you don't save the world, it gets destroyed half way through!

But then you go and save the remnants of the destroyed world. It doesn't count.

I had a chuckle to the community response:

Versus: -85%.

There weren't enough characters remaining to allow for enough zeros to reach the decimal place low enough to display Versus's progress. Granted they should've used scientific notation instead, but then again that would involve understanding what scientific notation is (and its not what you use to power airships, railguns, or whatever fantasy technobabble they think is cool enough to say "a scientific notation did it").

Got VICE working on my PSP so I've been playing Commodore 64 games on it. :D

I love Miner 2049er and Bruce Lee! And MULE! And Lode Runner!
I made some characters for Phantasie as well.

Lard while the C64 version certainly isn't the BEST version of Exile, you should totally play Exile.

What is Exile?

http://www.gamefaqs.com/c64/570311-exile

Or to summarize, its a proto Metroidvania set on a distant world where you explore around almost like a deep sea diver, jetting around through caverns, hunting down resources like fuel to keep yourself alive and mobile, and avoiding alien monsters and the like.

I'm not taking issue with iterative, I'm taking issue with them claiming it's a "BRAND NEW ENGINE." That's a flat-out lie. Iterating on an engine is totally cool, but not when you make a Big! Point! That! Your! Engine! is brand new and offers incredible new experiences.

That's the thing. Even a hamster will eventually learn not to nibble on the cupcake with the mild electric current running through it. Given time, even core gamers will no longer believe Ondore's lies (maybe; honestly, I haven't much hope for them or their cause).

I remember the outcry of Gundam 00 when people thought one of the main pilots was a girl.
Too bad, I myself would have looked forward to that =/

I really hope this is something they do in a future Gundam series. It was pretty eyeroll-y in Gundam SEED when Flay was suggesting that she was gonna go pilot the Gundam and Kira's all like, "You can't do that, you're a girl!"

That's like expecting a game about random anime heroines to not star an original male lead. (That's not even the biggest crossover to date given a game based on Queen's Gate got made, let alone this thing.)

In short, its never going to happen. Even Turn A Gundam couldn't get away with a female lead and had to compromise with the male lead donning drag and occasionally going by the name Laura. The best thing you can hope for these days is a female to be allowed to pilot some kind of Gundam add-on accessory pack, an unarmed battleship, or for the occasional Gundam pilot to suddenly decide to be female today.

Huh. Well it certainly didn't look like that from the video on the eShop.

Think Valkyrie Profile, but less obtuse and more http://i.imgur.com/VwUWvyT.jpg.

the fuck is happening there....

If it's like VP, I'm in.  If it's just selecting an attack and watching pretty graphic bursts and explosions I'm out.

The numbers above each individual unit's health bar indicates said unit's placement on the turn order list.

Code:
Note how you can see numbers in the lower to mid 90s. Granted, it is an end game battle but its still going to be a slog since you cannot skip animations since you need to input your combos and stuff.

Dragon warrior monsters for the gbc is one of the few rpgs I can think of that saving the world doesn't factor into the plot at all. It's also imo the best game made for the gbc(yes, better than pokemans) so if you haven't played it, I'd say give it a shot. I heard they remade it for the 3ds too, it helps if you're a dragon quest fan as a lot of the previous games bosses appear as unlockable monsters.

Sorry, but Oracle of Seasons (and maybe Ages) says hello. Though I will agree that it is one of the best GBC games.


If I remember correctly, don't you get sucked into an effort to save the world, though? I mean, sure technically it isn't the REAL world, but it is A world.

No. Your dog starts poking his nose where it don't belong while you're foolishly standing on the telepad in an abandoned laboratory. Granted, you do manage to save almost everybody who got sucked into Evermore but that's because you had to blow the whole damn thing up to get out in the first place.


Also this thread is about end game spoilers for various games so a disclaimer about game spoilers inside would be the more prudent course of action instead of yelling at posters for posting spoilers.
4811  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: A helpful (but long) video explaining the plot of Kingdom Hearts on: May 28, 2013, 11:31:20 PM
So where do the nanomachines come in?
In Kingdom Hearts? Never. :P

... so far.

At least not until TIME KOMPRESSION occurs.


Squeenix also loves me not buying their games. The last game I bought from them was Deus Ex, and how much did they have to actually do with the making of that game?

They (SQEX) funded the project I think.

Yes, though they actually own all of Eidos' former studios (Crystal Dynamics too), so technically it was made by Square Enix, just without any direct involvement from their teams in Japan.

Its more of a question of how long before Squeenix's arcane business practices bleed the former Eidos' studios dry of any and all talent.

Just watched "The Prestige". Wow, that device.....I want one.

You need to ask David Bowie for one.


If you ever meet me, you have to take me.


For reasons.

You want to join The Guild of Calamitous Intent?
4813  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: A helpful (but long) video explaining the plot of Kingdom Hearts on: May 28, 2013, 05:51:22 PM
I suspect the overall plot consists of:

Sora becoming the Keyblade Master and getting the band back together.

The rest of the story consists of like a hojillion side plot threads that are almost complete tangents and are unlikely to ever receive a satisfactory resolution (if they ever get one at all) because Squeenix fucking loves soap operas and can't seem to find someone who can write worth a shit.

This is going to remain a clusterfuck until E3 (and hell it'll probably stay a clusterfuck until the product hits store shelves or is pulled off of life support).
