I mentioned this one in the Super Gaming Thread already.

Super Mario Crossover. Some of your favorite NES characters trying to save Princess Toadstool from the evil clutches of Bowser.

Fun game, but some characters are nearly unplayable due to the fact that they emulate their actual abilities from their games of origin like Simon Belmont who was given a double jump and still can't jump for beans (or mushrooms).

Where's my HD FFVI remake?

Effin A. 

I don't mean to put it up on a pedastal, but IMO, FF6 deserves next-gen treatment.

I can see it now....Terra running down a corridor for 70+ hours looking at poorly textured rocks and visiting cool places for all of 15 minutes and never being let in again, smacking Sabin over the head for being an idiot, riding Magitek Armor that makes her look like she's having an orgasm, and lots and lots of mediocre voice acted cutscenes, and all to the tune of lousy J-Pop.

Welp. Sign me up, because I'll pay $80 for the version with the words Special Edition stamped on front.

Like dick jokes?  I don't care if you're the most cultured, civilized, sophisticated gentleman out there, you will laugh at a dick joke.  Or if for some reason you can't, you'll want to.

Yes, if this is a joke thread, it needs more dick jokes.

Fixed. (like your dog)

It should be noted that GEG was pretty adamant with his support of Baroque representing RPGFan's 2008 Wii RPG of the Year. A game that was a port of a remake of a Saturn game.

If you're citing that as an example of why his opinion can't be trusted then save it for one that's truly controversial.

Edit: Actually, don't. The more I think about it the more it irritates me that gets brought up, and it's not even relevant here.

I meant no insult by that, but I will admit that I should have suggested that he look up the Wii 2008 RPG of the year or provide the thread wherein he defended his claim that Baroque was the Wii's goty (that whole discussion was pretty silly in my opinion) for better context.

The point was to go along with Thoren's original joke, but because somebody doesn't have a sense of humor I have to explain it, and now it is no longer funny.

Pokedollarz Pearl: Finished the Trees once and for all, also swimming up to my neck in Feebas (still need DeepSeaScales/Tooths before I can retire my rods for all time), but I still need those three remaining swarms and a Helix Fossil (or whichever one gets you the Oynanite). Swablu evolved, so has my Jigglypuff, Magnamite, Voltorb, Sperrow, and Corphish. I've now seen over 300 different Pokes out of the 493 of this generation.

I should add that I also spent some time playing that Super Mario Crossover game on newgrounds. Made it up to 4-4 with just Samus. A pretty cool game if you think you know SMB inside and out, since it gets so much easier to find hidden stuff like 1-ups with Contra Guy's Spread Gun.

Two things.

First, FFXIII was an awesome tech demo. Just imagine a game made with that kind of technology?

Second, should Squediosnix ever bother to remake FFVII, they're going to remake it so hard it'll make Sword of Mana look like a 1:1 faithful adaption. They've already retconned the plot and characters to hell and back with all the spinoffs and movie. And just imagine how the gameplay will be updated to fit with modern standards?

Standards like identical (or possibly nearly identical) License Boards for everybody, farming ultra-MMO-rare Materia Shards from enemies for refining into usable Materia, Achievements involving getting nine copies of every Master Materia (including KotR with its AP for Mastery Requirement being double that of the second highest AP for Mastery Requirement), a much more deep and involved Chocobo Breeding sequence, extended Cloud x Barret scenes, extended TRAGIC backstory of why that guy calling himself Dark Lord is merely misunderstood, extended Cloud x Sephiroth scenes, remixed music and themes featuring 100% more J-Pop, a dozen new WEAPONS to fight (with over a billion HP apiece, and some come in multiple pieces), a couple of new post game dungeons made entirely of reused assets and endless mazes filled to the brim with endgame boss level enemies, and a shiny new strongest weapon in the game sitting at the end of all of this if you can make it to the end in under 9 hours.

That is all.

The Suikoden series is actually terrible. The praise it receives on these forums are a running inside joke.

I see...

Also, I've never a Suikoden game in my life. Is true that is that good as some people say it is?

Yes.

Suikoden 2 is the single best RPG I've ever played in my life.  Period.  Not even Nocturne comes close.

Interesting, maybe one day I'll try at least Suikoden II. I've read great things about that game in particular.

It should be noted that GEG was pretty adamant with his support of Baroque representing RPGFan's 2008 Wii RPG of the Year. A game that was a port of a remake of a Saturn game.

(Let's just hope we can keep the "Oh, hey! They just announced this game!" threads down to a minimum this year. It would be better if we just had a Megathread for each platform and then once the dust settles then we can start cranking out the individual threads.)

Certain games arguably ARE worth their own thread though, or at least certain companies. Just look at Xseed and Falcom, I could see similar done for Atlus's fall line up or whatever.

Right. I'm just suggesting that instead of hastily typing up "OH-EM-GEE ITS XXX!!!111oneoneone..." while listening to the actual announcement, we have a megathread to post the "HOLE-LEE SHIT"s in and then when the dust settles have someone post together a more comprehensive thread out of the scattered screenshots and Youtube video links, thus (hopefully) avoiding the dozen or so redundant "THIS IS GOING TO BE DA GREETEST GAEM EVAR!!!111oneoneone..." threads.

(so much so, that I'd dare suggest that this year is the second coming of 1998).

I'd at least wait until E3, and (naturally) we won't know for sure until the year's passed. Still, this is one of the stronger first halves we've had, with games like ME2 being amazing and even FFXIII being fairly solid.

Don't forget about some of those side games like Infinite Space, SMT: Strange Journey, Resonance of Fate, and Nier (and that's just the RPGs and RPG-likes).

I am definitely awaiting E3 with baited breath. (Let's just hope we can keep the "Oh, hey! They just announced this game!" threads down to a minimum this year.

Man, I make for a really mean drunk. Apologies all around.

Anyways, its kinda disappointing in retrospect to see Volke with only one support option with Bastion. If there was ever a reason to field that guy, it was that because Volke was an utter beast right up until the end where his low strength cap and defense/resistance growth plus the fact that knives were pieces of crap in that game made it a bad idea to go attacking more than one person unless he had a high biorhythm for Lethality. Hell Volke was so broken I never needed to buy another staff for my healers again. Both Mist and Rhys easily made it to 20/20 thanks to all the exp gained from spamming Physic Staffs all over the place.

Good god, just looking over the rest of FE9's supports and looking at what the Ike x Soren bromance can do, it's simply overkill. A +1 to attack and a +22 to dodge at A rank would allow them to just walk down the stage hand in hand demolishing everything in sight (admittedly Ike could do better with Oscar but Soren and his natural Adept is all about hitting enemies as many times as possible, and the +1 would add up fast provided anything could live long enough to take more than two hits from him).

Wait. Does one of them have a loving jet engine for a tail?

Gotta' Catch 'Em A~ll! Pokemon: Caught all the Burmy I'll ever need from the blasted honey trees (though I had to increase the number of trees in rotation to eight to do it in). Now I'm just a Munchlax shy of never having to waste my Pokedollars on Honey again.

And I've almost gained half a level on my Swablu (and only after four or so trips to the Pokecenter to revive it every time it runs out of HP because having Takedown as its only offensive move sucks (well there's Natural Power but that is fueled entirely by berries among other things)).
4949  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Hexyz Force (PSP) on: May 28, 2010, 08:50:03 PM
Hexyz Force is one of those rare dual protagonist games where I think the guy arguably has the better storyline than the girl.  The girl has very good development over the course of the game, though.  Then again I always pick the girl when given a choice anyway.  In Kartia (which I mentioned in my review), I chose Lacryma first and found her storyline more compelling. 

Rare? Both Summon Night GBA games had the exact same storyline for both boy and girl, including the awkward sexual tension scenes which metamorphoses into yuri-ish shenanigans (before any misconceptions are made it should be noted that it never goes farther than a kiss and no cutscenes either).

Then there's games like SO2's we have dual protagonists but since Rena's a resident of JRPG world she doesn't get to see the one starship that would otherwise suggest that this is a Scifi-ish JRPG and instead settle for spending more time with Dias (who Emo's more than Squall despite having far less screentime) and dicking around during the tourney.

And then there's Sword of Mana and its lovely rather than coming up with new scenes for the Girl to play through as we'll just remove segments from the Boy's campaign like the Airship and bring back a character who should be dead to compensate for her lack of allies dead weight.

Speaking of Mana Legend of Mana didn't....well it didn't bother to do anything with either protagonist (although considering the time you end up spending that's probably a good thing).

And these are just the ones I came up with off hand.

It's more rare to see alternate protagonists with actually different routes rather than exactly the same scenes and dialog or recycled assets.
4950  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fire Emblem: Another remake is in the works. on: May 28, 2010, 08:19:41 AM
Fun fact: SRW:OG2 has the same stat buff / relationship system as the Fire Emblem games!  You just don't get to pick which ones are active in SRW, because they're all active all the time!

Also similarly, it's usually not worth limiting your tactical options by saddling two characters side by side to get any long term results out of the small bonus.

It's alright if you're going for maximized damage against a boss, but the real reason why you put people next to each other is for the support attacks/defends & combination attacks (and maybe the occasional repair/resupply/spirit command).


While I'm all for turning this board into GameFAQs, if any of you plebs bothered to do your homework then you would know that things will go a lot smoother this time around just on the principal of the source material being vastly superior to that of the previous game's alone.

What the fuck? Either you're joking around or being condescending, and if it's the latter then knock it off.

It's more interesting to actually talk about strategies with other people than just hitting GameFaqs anyway.

It's a bit of both. In part because most of the discussion thus far has been about the flaws of SD and how it throws away many of the developments the series has performed over the years without accepting that the purpose of the game was to get a playable version of FE1 into the hands of a new generation, warts and all rather than reimagining it like their favorite FE game (for example: think on why it would be a bad idea for the Original Legend of Zelda to be remade with all the conventions of the later games in place of the older mechanics :hint: game would become piss easy and tutorials would gain free reign). (Also if I wanted to participate in FE balance discussions I'd sign up to GameFAQs' or Serenes Forest's boards instead, and at the rate this topic has degenerated it feels like it's only a matter of time before before this thread combusts into yet another retarded tier list.)

But also, yes I have been trying to subtly troll and gradually building to see where the limit of bullshit lies then hover around it because this board could use another condescending asshole.
