No Deus Ex?
No Freedom Force?
No Icewind Dale I or II?

Yeah. I'm pissed too.

Where the hell is The Bard's Tale 1 & 2? Where's King's Quest VIII? Where's Septerra Core?

Bah, I hate Jeanne D'Arc.  Done with that shit.  Interesting game, but I'd rather replay Fire Emblem for a SRPG fix.

Question though:  Since I hated Jeanne D'Arc's gameplay, will I hate FFT:A PSP as well?  The biggest thing that bothered me in Jeanne D'Arc was the stage layouts (that stage were you had to protect the froggie pissed me off to no end).  Also hated their version of the weapon triangle.  Should I stay clear of FFT:A PSP then?

FFT:A is on the GBA not the PSP. The only FFT game on the PSP is War of the Lions and is awesome if you love FFV's job system mixed with SRPG.

That said, its a very good game if you're going into it blind and don't overgrind or cheeze the system (although it can still be good if you enjoy breaking the game). However, it is nothing like SRPGs like FE or SF, but instead is more of a turn based RPG like FFV or X set on a grid based battlefield very much like the TO games. The plot was really good at the time but hasn't aged well (due to all the quadruple-crosses going on and the main character making as much sense as someone with downs given just how idealistic he's portrayed as (then again this could just be an aftereffect of the piss poor translation the PSX version got in which case the PSP will be infinitely better due to having a redone translation)).

One thing I should note though is that there are perma-deaths if you are not quick about reviving KO'd people.

(Of course if you are somehow playing FFTA on the PSP (or meant the GBA) then you'll like it even less since it's a SRPG that though it would be a great idea to separate your party members into five separate races but give them almost identical jobs with maybe one or two different skills and tie all of your grinding towards getting a shitload of weapons and ever so slowly grind skills off of them. Also Laws suck and the plot is pretty lame (though Marche can be reinterpreted as a stone cold fucker if you consider him to be the antagonist instead).)

That said, NSMBW: finished world 2 with full coins and both world's cannons unlocked. Now on either worlds 3 or 5 depending on which I would rather do first.

There are two games I've been dying for a remake of:  Earthbound and Secret of Mana

Be careful what you wish for! I too would love a Secret of Mana game, but I vividly remember how excited that Final Fantasy Adventure was being remade...and how HORRIBLE it was. Sword of Mana pretty much made a simplistic game into this moral angstfest full of villians and heroes who were morally gray...and then they talked about it NONSTOP. Don't get me started on the extra Malvole storyline they shoehorned in.

Ugh ugh ugh ugh ugh. :|

Not to mention all the gameplay mechanics from all of the previous games up to that point that they shoehorned in there making sure that none of them worked at all with each other. They ultimately added 200+ to 300+ hours of grinding to a now 10 hour (if that) game.

The BS chapters are not going to be in the main game. They're going to be included in an extra option.

Don't we have a thread for this very thing in the General Discussion forum.

Anyways, Glory of Heracles.

Glory of Heracles has touch screen shenanigans for casting spells and stuff but the benefits aren't exactly worth it.

Most of the higher-level spells can have thier damage nearly tripled by doing those minigames, and even the lower level ones can nearly double it.  I'd say that's worth it for a 5-second game.

The thing about GoH's touch games powerups is the fact that many spells when left to auto-cast come out at level 2 out of 3 or something to that effect. And while you could powerup to level 3 for extra damage, if you aren't paying attention or something you can miss at level 1 thus weakening the spell rather than powering it up.

And for the 10 to 15 seconds that it takes to go through these games, the increase in power only goes from x1.4 to x1.7. You're only getting a 0.2 1/7 increase to damage for basic spells which isn't a hell of a lot.

I could've lived without the Adol X Dogi speculation.

Heres a video of the last time I tried to hit on Dice


So wait, does this mean that...


Anyways all I want is something that's a) Still breathing, b) Not bearing any major diseases, c) has an actual vagina, and d) Weights less than I do.

Having a hot naked lesbian twin is entirely optional (but very much preferred).

One character appearing doesn't mean they are adding those BS stages.

Yeah, but there are like 4 BSFE stages total. Whether they're there or not isn't that big of a deal (considering the lack of Voice Acting in real time thing which was pretty much the point of the BS games).

That said, I doubt that they would leave them out since they do go a long way towards showing why Camus is a Char Nyna has a thing for Camus.

Edit: Also confirmed for a reappearance is FE:DS1's Althena. (At this point I would wonder if some FE2 characters would also show up but technically their already represented in the form of the Pegasus Sisters plus the CC could be made to resemble either lord character or someone else as well.)
