Some more information including that it is indeed an RPG, and that I don't have to board the last train for the coast.

Why has no one recommended Digital Devil Saga yet?
i was thinking the same thing i played dds after p3fes and nocturne and really i think it's the middle ground between the two.

i'm surprised that no one has been talking on this thread about the smt fire emblem cross over yet. i bet klyde get's a wii u for it...

I suspect it's because all we have for info on it right now is that it exists, its going to be either taking something old from both series or making something new, and that its going to be for the WiiU.

I was thinking that given how the controller for the Wii U is The Wind Waker can benefit greatly from it.

You could finally use the Tingle Tuner without the need of an another system and hunting for treasure in the ocean can be a more interesting affair, especially for when you have to get the Triforce charts.

Or, god willing, they can just get rid of the whole Triforce chart sequence entirely because it made me hate Tingle for all eternity. Or at the very least, remove the absurd rupee cost. FUCK YOU TINGLE!

I love Wind Waker and all, but I thought it was filled with more grievances than the rest of the games.  Triforce Shard hunting was just mean.  I hated Skyward Sword, but I liked their approach to the Triforce even if the dungeon it was in was a copy/paste waste of precious....um, Zelda Dungeon-ing.

I liked the concept of SS's final dungeon shuffling. I just wish it wasn't Dungeon Shuffling for Kids (or at least it didn't recycle a mid boss by turning it into the boss).

But getting rid of the Triumph Forks hunts and/or replacing them with another dungeon would be nice (even if it means no longer having a use for Rupees since Tingle's services, Beedle's shop, the Auction, and a handful of minigames were the only meaningful expenses in the game).

Another wish on my HD remake wishlist though would be to make combat not completely piss easy (that action roll business neutered every non boss/boat fight in the game). That, and making it so that you didn't have to come to a complete stop every time you wanted to do something on the ship (including, but not limited to, launching bombs to fight enemies like those sharks).

Meanwhile all this SMT talk has finally convinced me to start me up some Nocturne, when, of course, one of my siblings just had to come by yesterday to borrow my PS2 for the indeterminate future. At least I still have Strange Journey and, if I'm really desperate, Persona 4: The Golden (not that I don't want to play this but it's intended as a gift in the near future and it would be kinda tacky to play someone's intended gift before I give it to them).

Since every other big shiny new reveal from today's Nintendo Direct video got a thread I figured why not. And besides, if its anything like Yoshi's Island (save for the babies) then it'll totally be worth it (plus 1998 was forever ago).
4941  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Wind Waker U on: January 23, 2013, 01:29:02 PM
Who knew that PXZ getting a localization would be the least surprising surprise news this week (or at least the least interesting).

But yeah, would totally love to see this. Even beginning to imagine the Ganondorf fight at the end in glorious HD is almost enough to get me to cream my pants (and then there's yet another SMT/Persona game and...wait, what! *creams pants*).

My one issue is that there seems to be a bit too much bloom in the screenshots/trailer, but that'll be nothing but water under the bridge if they either give the third pearl a proper dungeon or make an extra big extra island that, while similar in principle to the Ocean King Temple/Tower of Spirits of PH/SS respectfully, isn't made mandatory yet provides players a difficult and puzzling terrain to explore and loot at any given point in the game.

I think I dropped a Deus :p in my pants when I saw this. I think the fact that there was an ESRB tag and English production listings means its definitely coming here. I love XSEED but I'd like to see Nintendo publish it here, simple because we will see it sooner and it won't be such a PIA to find in stores. They did the UK localizations for TLS and XB, so they obviously have the experience. Either way, this alone makes the Wii U worth the price of admission.

I was too busy dropping a Deus in my pants over the SMTXFE crossover (didn't help that I had already had to restrain myself over WWHD) when I saw this.

Also NoA did publish Xenoblade 1. They just distributed to Gamestop and online only because they thought the rest of the major gaming territories were full of it and that US gamers didn't possess the attention span to sit through even one of Fi's lifeless, stating-the-obvious rants. Although XSeeD did end up publishing The Last Story and now Pandora's Tower and hopefully they'll publish this one too.

Edit: Also, was it me, or did the guy at the end of the (not?) Xenoblade 2 trailer look a heck of a lot like Shulk?
4943  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem on: January 23, 2013, 01:04:24 PM
I hope that you will be able to eat the Fire Emblem people to absorb their powers.  This has already had a proof of concept with Kirby in Smash Bros.

Serph devours Marth!

Serph becomes FABULOUS!

Nevermind that, what kind of eugenic shenanigans will I need to pull to breed the Immune Phys skill onto as many demonlings as possible?

But seriously, if this turns out to be yet another useless, phoned in, bare naked, cash grabing, GREE/iOS, card game, I swear to god, I don't care if I have to drive my Chevy to the levy, that'll be the day the gaming died to me. I won't even have enough faith left in me to believe in Xenoblade 2(?) after watching two of the top Japanese game developers sell out like that.

That was fast.

Also nice to see the trailer in not stutter-o-vision.

Although it does look a bit too Monster Hunter-ish for my tastes. But at least we finally have giant robots to pilot, and it just ain't no Xeno game without at least someone driving a mecha.
4945  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGz you want HD'd/Remade on: January 23, 2013, 10:01:49 AM
So who here guessed Wind Waker as an RPG needing an HD edition?
4946  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem on: January 23, 2013, 09:59:46 AM
Am I missing something or is there literally no link at all in any way between those 2 series other than the JRPG classification?

They're both known for being unforgiving. Maybe the Samurai business of SMTIV might be involved or Awakening's cross gate shenanigans.

I mean the Devil Survivor games are at least in the same genre as the FE series so maybe it'll be along those lines.
4947  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Shin Megami Tensei X Fire Emblem on: January 23, 2013, 09:30:43 AM
Announced on Nintendo Direct.

I just came.

Edit: http://www.siliconera.com/2013/01/23/shin-megami-tensei-x-fire-emblem-crossover-coming-to-wii-u/

Now with links.

So, uh. I didn't know that YouTube had in their timeline as some of their most important videos of a video of a woman dying on camera. More than the video itself though (which is heavy stuff all things considered) is pretty shocking how easy is to access to watch said video.

I saw it just to see if it was some sort of sick joke since you never really for sure with Internet in some cases, and... yeah. Messing around in YouTube is a double-edged sword.

Did this occur around 2009~10?

I'm not sure if the video I'm thinking of is the same as the one you're thinking of.
4949  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Random and Amazing Pictures, Please! on: January 23, 2013, 04:20:21 AM

It may be 22 years out of date but the dates do match up.

4. Playing through Tactics Ogre: Let us Cling Together (PSP). Played for about 15 hours now, love the game and find if very deep and satisfying, but the story keeps getting lost on me. It's my first game of the series and apparently the 7th? in the story and alot of what they say I just don't distinguish because it's all still new to me. Other than that, outstanding game. I'm in chapter 2 where you have to fight 1 on 1 with Vyce and he beats my face in. I've tried a couple times and stand no chance. Time to go grind for a bit.

Yeah. Don't pay too much attention to the numerical order of the series as the Tactics Ogre Battle series suffered the same fate that Xenogears and the Xenosaga games did. There are only five Tactics Ogre Battle games out there (six if you count the PSP TO remake separately) and that's counting a side story chapter that was made by an entirely different developer and the most recent one (again barring the PSP remake) was the GBA title Knights of Lodis which came out in 01/02.
