Looks horribly, horribly cheesy.

We'll see.

Wow. A Hollywood remake that's actually trying to keep the spirit of the original.

I didn't think they made these anymore.

I'm surprised no one made this joke.

Am I the only one to have heard the gaming urban myth that some kid spent all night playing Parasite Eve instead of studying for his biology exam and ended up getting an A because the exam questions were mostly about mitochondria? 

I would debate this but admittedly video games provided me pretty much my entire education for my remaining years in grade school after the 3rd grade (actually games pretty much covered me all the way to college now that I think about it).

It wasn't that bad. It just needs some work (a whole lot of work that is).

Best way to describe it is as a playable version of NamcoXCapcom, but it can easily do better still.

Edit: Speaking of which. It looks like the gang's all here.

Getting back on topic here for a moment.

Well if they're bringing THAT back, lets hope they get it right this time.

While I couldn't care less for this game, I commend you for editing the OP rather than creating yet another redundant thread for the announcement.
4942  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New RPGs from Namco Bandai on: November 13, 2009, 08:53:54 PM
Well, we didn't get OG Gaiden, which was the new stuff in OGs plus a bunch of new chapters that involve Master Rishu showing up in the Grungust Type-O and Katina/Russel getting their own Grungust Type-3 to play with.

And from what I hear, a lot of the anime-involved games really flesh out characters like Kusuha/Bullet and Axel/Kyosuke/Excellen.  The Alpha games (I think) are also supposed to give you a lot more background on Masaki and Shu and how the hatred between them got stirred up.

Aside from the first game the numbered series spanning from 2 to FFinal was focused on Masaki and Shu and the other Elemental Lords. The Alpha games are where a lot of the main OG characters comes from (this includes Bullet, Kashua, the SRX team, Zenger, and so on). The WonderSwan games are where the key members of the ATX team originate (Kyosuke and Excellen at the least). And other characters like Axel and Lamia came from the other GBA games not named Original Generation. This is not to say that there weren't any new characters for the OG games themselves like Latooni, The Hiryuu crew, Captain Daitetsu and so on.

For more information consult your local GameFAQs: Super Robot Taisen: Robot Series Guide.

I'd like to see Yasunori Shiono brought in to do the soundtrack.

If this happens, all will be forgiven.

I just finished Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
Code:
Volcano part was easy... Then again I went acolyte mode and the hardest boss for me was the Statue of Liberty

Does every girl in NGS2 have big boobs?

I don't know. Did Dead or Alive Extreme Beach Volleyball have big boobs?


Anyways I purchased a copy of SMT: Nocturne last night for about $28.
4946  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New Information on Spirit Tracks on: November 09, 2009, 04:12:49 PM
Same reaction as Prime. Why would they even consider bringing back the Ocean King Temple? Even a "improved" version?
I also agree with Dice in that this has to be amazing awesome to even get some interest out of me. So far it looks like Blah. The whole trains thing makes me think they're shooting for the 5 year old demo.

I also recall the music being horrible and repetitive. Every dungeon pretty much had the same boring bgm. NOT cool.
Yeah, I pretty much wrote this off right after it was announced.



If I recall correctly that was the exact same thing said about Wind Waker before it came out. And if I recall correctly it ended with Ganondorf getting a sword planted directly into his skull.

Also, I'm sorta hoping that the overworld for this game bares some kind of resemblance to AoL's overworld (or a piece therein of). It might finally put to rest those debates of what the Zelda timeline looks like.

And while we're on the subject of ToV ports...

http://www.1up.com/do/newsStory?cId=3176815

Yes i already knew this... cant say much about it -.-, just blerghh, i dont understand why they release this game like this...
You think releasing Vesperia on the Wii is wrong? What's wrong is releasing Ar-Tonelico 3 exclusively on the PS3 in the U.S., when the 360 already has a bigger user base...and when there aren't a whole lot of exclusives on the PS3, versus the 360, that would actually make most people wanna buy the damn thing, even if it's cheaper now...

Besides, like has already been said, he might be mistaking Graces for Vesperia, since Graces is supposed to be released on the Wii...

But really though, what's so hard to believe about Vesperia being released on the Wii? It looks like just another PS2 game; I think the Wii should be able to handle it.

Well, anyway the ps3 i getting some great rpgs next year... and is not much if wii can handel graphics, more like the interface of battles, etc etc

Well now I feel like a goddamn fool.

Its their fault really.

Legend of Legaia. Who gives a shit about its graphics? Seriously, it had an awesome battle system

I kind of wished XG's battle system worked like LoL's. XG's battle system was like a very, very, very simplistic version of LoL's.

As for SD2 and SoE's magic, both of them had more useless than useful spells, and it was a pain to get either of them leveled up. Also I thought SD2's multiplayer was just *bad* and I don't think single-screen multiplayer ever really works that well for RPGs.

Granted both had more than their share of useless spells (given that they were both made by Squaresoft (kinda)) but SD2's magic had at least one spell per element that was generally useful, whereas Evermore's alchemy only ever really needed Crush and one of the many Healing formulas (and possibly the Defense and Atlas formulas should one desire to break the game).

I basically see SD2 not as a golden standard but as an rough, unpolished gem. Sure there were bugs, glitches, and general design flaws, but the potential for growth was there too. A potential that was tragically ignored in an effort to focus on the fluffy character building aspects of SD3 and eventually to redefine itself at every turn (a trait that, while noble in intent, can be horribly executed as the case was for that World of Mana compilation). Repetition itself isn't necessarily a bad thing when perfecting ideas just as long as it isn't taken to the extreme, just like redefinition isn't a bad thing if used for innovation rather than for the sake of spamming genres with the same flawed game seen by said genre over and over.

Were Tales of Vesperia and Star Ocean IV ever released on the PS3?

Latter's coming to the U.S., no word yet on the significantly better ToV PS3 port.  I know I'll be buying a PS3 if Namco-Bandai brings it here.

And while we're on the subject of ToV ports...

I'm going to go with a few cult games.

Secret of Evermore. Very underrated from what I've experienced. People always bash the premise of the game, and not the actual gameplay. This is unfortunate, because it offered a new form of customization at its time that some games did not. That, the music and the worlds were very creative.

SaGa Frontier 2. I'd say its music is the most underrated as I believe it's Hamauzu's greatest work (I'm waiting for FFXIII). But I think people have an issue with the difficulty of the battle system and broken weapons to make it less appreciative. That said, once you understand the formula, SF2 becomes a pretty straightforward game. Battle of South Moundtop is difficult, especially if you were never really paying attention to the support/attack capabilities of your troops IFF adjacent to other team members. One of my more favorite battles in any game as I was completely engrossed in Gustav's story.

Legend of Legaia. Who gives a shit about its graphics? Seriously, it had an awesome battle system and a basic enough storyline to get gamers through. Whether they liked it or not depends, but it's definitely better than it's almost Legaia 2: Dual Saga carbon copy.

Jak and Daxter. Well, I guess this wouldn't be overrated because of its later iterations, but it's something I don't see getting talked about by anyone 15+.

Edit* Infinite Undiscovery, Adam's Family Pugsley's Quest. . . . oatmeal is burning. Perhaps I'll fill in later.

I have always said that compared to SD2's elemental magic Evermore's alchemy system is simply inferior (also no multiplayer).

SFII is what got me into the SaGa series fyi.

I have no issues with the other two save for my lack of having played them.

Infinite Undiscovery is infinitely overrated.

And the last one is right up there with numbers 3 and 4.


Anyways, what does anyone think of Klonoa or the early Spyro games being underrated?
