What didn't help the OG games though was that they literally came and went with almost no fanfare whatsoever compounded by the fact that they came out at the very end of the GBA's life when the DS was picking up steam and the old market.

And they were literally given no time to stand on their own.
OG1 was released in the US on 08/08/06
OG2 was released in the US on 11/14/06

Just as a comparison of other late GBA games they were up against
FFV was released in the US on 11/06/06
FFVI was released in the US on 02/05/07
MMBN6 G&F were released in the US on 6/13/06
MMZ4 was released in the US on 10/04/05
Tales of Phantasia was released in the US on 03/06/06
Summon Night: Swordcraft Story was released in the US on 07/26/06
Summon Night: Swordcraft Story 2 was released in the US on 10/17/06

And games from other systems also coming out at the time
LoZ:TP was released in the US on 12/11/06 (11/19/06 if you count the Wii version)
Red Steel was released in the US on 11/19/06
Etrian Odyssey was released in the US on 05/15/07
Mario and Luigi: Partners in Time was released in the US on 11/28/05
Pokemons Pearl and Diamond were released in the US on 04/22/07
New Super Mario Bros. was released in the US on 05/15/06
MMZX was released in the US on 09/12/06
Phantasy Star Universe was released in the US on 10/25/06
Enchanted Arms was released in the US on 08/29/06
Gears of War was released in the US on 11/07/06
Call of Duty 3 was released in the US on 11/14/06

It should also be noted as to just how old they were when they finally did come out
OG1 was released in Japan on 11/22/02
OG2 was released in Japan on 02/03/05

In short, they were up against a hell of a lot when they came out.

Plus it should be noted that both the Gamecube and the GBA were dead and buried by July 2007.

And somehow USA managed another tie.

Hopefully somebody who actually wasted their time watching the thing can tell me who we humiliated and how badly did we humiliate them.

Because I didn't get FFT on the PSP I am even more interested in getting it now. The only foreseeable issue in the future with this version is probably going to be battery life which sucks versus the brickability of the PSP and its abysmal battery life.

Now if only I knew how they were going to handle the multiplayer of this version of the game (nevermind Secret of Mana's multiplayer).

KitN PSP still dumbfounds me given just how they're trying to port a game to the PSP as literally batshit insane as it was on the DS. Besides I already have one artbook from the game, I don't need two.

VC2 will impress me if it makes some meaningful changes to the series beyond bridging the gap between VC1 and the ST series.

FE3 is a given.

CivV along with the rest of the Civ series is something I will eventually have to get into once I can get together a computer worth a shit to play games on.

I have no fucking clue as to what the fuck Blue Roses is supposed to be or what's it about, and my opinion of Agarest Senki 2 is exactly the same as Agarest Senki 1.

Somewhere in September.

I don't remember the exact timeframe in which to start looking for new SRW news though.

I might get it by virtue of the fact that my N64 controller stick has disintegrated to the point where I can't run forward anymore.
4941  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: E3 2010 on: June 17, 2010, 03:27:52 PM

What? Is this in regards to not streaming Konami's? Because Konami didn't allow anyone but themselves to stream it.

My bad then. I was under the impression that all the technical difficulties that they've had over the course of the event was the reason they took down their link to Konami's conference (granted everyone was having technical difficulties at some point but 1up only got through MS's one without a glitch hitch).

At least that explains why nobody else was even attempting it though.

Master quest is still the best version.....

Ya know, I beg to differ. I found the Master Quest not very exciting. A lot of the puzzles in MQ are easier, just weirder. Instead of expending effort to swing yourself up waterfall platforms, you have to just find one hidden target that the designers just put in a strange place, or hookshot a key out of a mirror. I didn't find these kinds of things particularly interesting or exciting. It felt more self-referential than anything, as if the developers had a field "breaking" the level editor. It's sort of the Lost Levels of the Zelda series, except that I found the original OoT more challenging. It would be cool if they put BOTH on the cartridge though, for shits and giggles.

You left out the part where they made a bunch of switches into cows' asses.

That said, it was kinda like that in the Original's 2nd Quest as well. It starts out much harder due to facing Glerocs and Darknuts by level 2 but level 9 is a breeze compared to 1st Quest's version.

The second half of the video is hilarious once you notice that the dance footage is canned.

Also etreeeeeme

All excitement I had vanished into the depths of Hell when I read Idea Factory.

Maybe they can include some loving enemies in Future Hyrule Field.

Or maybe make it so that the enemies that actually are there become somewhat menacing somehow.

I might take the plunge in a few more months provided that all new RRoD horror stories don't start cropping up all over the place by then.
4947  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: if you could make or produce any game(s) you want on: June 16, 2010, 01:45:54 PM
If I had to limit myself to preexisting games or franchises then either a sequel to Vagrant Story or one of the missing chapters of the Ogre Battle series.
4948  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: E3 2010 SRPG news on: June 16, 2010, 01:42:55 PM
So was there any news from Atlus on whether or not we will be seeing SRW:OGSaga:TLoE or Growlanser PSP in the US anytime soon?
4949  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: E3 2010 on: June 16, 2010, 01:40:35 PM
Nintendo had a decent showing, though I was unimpressed by the zelda demo, thanks entirely to the motion controller being a GIANT PIECE OF SHIT. Course, their take on the intro of it was entertaining. Golden Sun Dark Dawn sold me, though. Fuck everything else, Golden Sun is win. 3DS is meh so far, I didn't get enough info from it to like or dislike it. I'll look tomorrow. Epic Mickey seems Epic, though...

Microsoft....Welcome to last place.

Sony has Kevin butler. They could have announced Jak and Daxter racing, Resistance 1:Redo, MAG 2, and a price increase and I STILL would give them the best E3 presentation solely due to Kevin Butler putting gaming itself into perspective. He didn't EXACTLY state PS3, though he did at the same time, he didn't bash either nintendo or ms, though he kind of did. He fought for the sake of gaming in general. Sure, it was a fancy script, sure it was just an act, but I bought it and as a gamer I appreciated it. That being said, fuck Move, fuck Twisted Metal, fuck Killzone 3.

Once again, MS....heh heh, failure.

Have to agree, one of the most disappointing E3s I can ever remember.

Why bring out stuff like Golden Sun last year if it wasn't really ready and show it again this year?
My biggest complaint with both Sony and Nintendo is they showed a lot of the same stuff they showed last year. I didn't watch MS's conference but I heard it was terrible.
There was just an underwhelming feeling of meh to the whole thing.
If Nintendo had saved stuff like Golden Sun and Metroid Other M for this year, they would have knocked it out of the park.

Except that those were what they used to knock it out of the park last year.

Up until yesterday the only things we knew about Zelda Wii was that it was going to be released on the Wii, it was going to use Wii Motion Plus, and it was going to star a swordless Link resembling TP's Link and a mysterious girl who's appearance resembled the Master Sword. Now we know that they really did decide to go down the Celda route but still maintaining the overall appearance of TP's Link, we know that they're replacing the Boomerang once again for a Beetle (or was it the Whip that replaced the Boomerang), we know that you can go bowling with bombs finally, we know that the sword beam's back again, we know that the forest temple or whatever will be sporting a mushroom motif (for now), we know that Link can go sky diving apparently (also for now), and we know that the game won't be making it this year.

Beyond that we also got new announcements for a new Donkey Kong Country game, a SMW vs. SMW2:YI level of new Kirby adventure, and a new SSB:B-ish Kid Icarus.

Also say what you will about Other M's been there done that-ness, but seeing Samus doing Metroid-y stuffs versus Ninja Gaiden stuffs or angsting stuffs was not a bad thing at all.

If anything Goldeneye was by far the weakest thing shown during Nintendo's conference. Distorted nostalgia isn't changing the fact that its still one FPS amongst far too many. Even DQIX's buy this at stores near you on so and so was better because they didn't waste anymore time on it than absolutely necessary.

^Yes. An animated gif of Reggie with his dopey XD face. Now we need one using his dopey @_@ face.

Anyways, did anyone else notice how the start of the trailer only referenced the console titles up to OoT?

Also, let me be among the first ones to hope that this title is either a sequel or spinoff title ala Link's Awakening or Majora's Mask rather than another 'Save Zelda (or in this case Celda) from Gannon.' title. We've already had two console titles like that in a row already.
