More details, including a multiplayer mode.

Fuck yeah!

I've also heard that there was some behind the scenes fuckery going on with Sony's VA polices, and rather than deal with the costly bullshit polices Altus shrugged.

But then again that just one of the possibilities that I've heard.

i was under the impression that star ocean is influenced by star trek. in star trek dont they spend a good amount of time on back water planets?

Star Ocean took some of the worst aspects of Star Trek to use in their games, like long, boring discussions about the Prime Directive and how great it is to not get involved. Also, if the characters get stuck on a backwater planet, it doesn't mean that everything has to become fantasy-like. I remember a particular episode of Star Trek where one of the crew members is sent to pick up some radioactive material, loses his memories in a crash, and unwittingly brings the case with the metal and wanders into a nearby village, where a "plague" begins to spread (Actually radiation poisoning). The village itself was very medieval, but the story never felt like it fell outside the boundaries of sci-fi, since it also showed what was happening on the ship and whatnot. You can have science fiction concepts on backwater planets if you want, though I'm not as sure how you'd stick such a concept in a game without feeling arc fatigue really soon after.

The funny thing about 4 going to great lengths to establish the prime directive is the fact that every other game in the series has promptly walked over it like if its an irrelevant rule written by stodgy old bureaucrats with absolutely no consequences for violating it (aside from maybe an occasional lecture or two).

Oh well, next up is Falrod which also tends to be irritating and then it's nothing but smooth sailing till Dharma (which also sucks but for different reasons).

Yyyyyyyyyeah at least the payoff for that's the class system.

I should get back to DQ7*. I'd JUST gotten melvin.

There's that but also the game's first casino which will make my life easier once I break it (and the best part is that it comes at the start of Dharma which helps to alleviate the rest of it).

Too bad it sucks compared to the others (neither of which will I be seeing until the end of Coastal).

Of course the part that I dread the most about this game is Gracos.
Code:
(Well him and the final boss.)

Ah. RPGFan. Where would I go to learn of the myriad of ways to disfigure one's manhood without you?

My cock and I salute you.

As long as you can marry a guy and fart it will be epic /sarcasm

Fuck that. I want to have my fuckin' citizens fuck fuckin' sheep so that I can fuckin' rule over fuckin' sheeple dammit.

Yeah, this definitely looks worse than the original.

I will admit though that the 3D does help a little despite it not really looking any better than the original. Plus I bet the interface will be significantly overhauled like DQV's was which will probably help a lot in this version.

Some details are beginning to emerge on the game. The most noticeable thing right now though is the fact that the game will have four protagonists for you to play as with each having their own story.

PS1 was more Sci-Fi than any of the SO games.

Early on it sucks to WM due to survivability and damage output. However that all changes later in the game when you're rezzin and healing each other and throwing the occasional status spell if it comes to it. BMs on the other hand have less durability and are not able to care for themselves nearly as well. Especially later on since you only have potions to rely upon for all your healing (and they suck). Also BMs have terrible equips and physical stats throughout the game leaving magic as your sole method of damage. Even BBs by end game turn into walking juggernauts thanks to their hilarious strength and the cart full of potions and tents that their trucking thanks to having nothing else to buy.

That said. I've beaten the 16th story mission in FFTA2. It's hilarious to think that I'm at the end game level and the game finally remembers that this game needed a plot. Of course I have invested 0% of my interest in this plot due to, well everything about it.

As for DQVII I'm at Orph in the present. I ended up totally punking Deathpal due to misremembering why he's such a bitch to beat (no magic and his ability to take two actions per round isn't as big of a deal as I thought when you're level 10 and equipped to the max). Oh well, next up is Falrod which also tends to be irritating and then it's nothing but smooth sailing till Dharma (which also sucks but for different reasons).

Gentlemen. Let us end this silly derail about why Capcom should be making BoFVI instead of this game and return this thread to it's intended purpose of discussing why Capcom should be making Command Mission 2 instead of this game.
5053  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Looking for action RPGs on: September 21, 2009, 08:54:54 PM
There's a part, i think it's when you first go up in the tower, i remember the camera is fixed in a way that you cannot see the surface of the plataforms, and in a way, you just have to guess your jumps and hope that you can land there without falling. The rest of the tower dungeons do have free camera, i'm trying to find some youtube video of that specific part but can't find it so far.

There is a part where you're going through a city that's turned onto it's side during the Babel Tower run. Other than that you can spin the camera around just like you can for most of the game.

As for the sewers I didn't have too much trouble or find it that annoying. But then its not like I was running through them just so that I can look for a key to get to the other end of the sewers to have a meaningless conversation with some self important bum just so that I could pass the time like some ADD laden kid.

Downloaded and played some Tales of Monkey Island for free yesterday. Too bad my computer is a piece of crap (and this is an upgrade to an even bigger piece of shit too). Issues aside, I just need a light and I'll be done with the pirating around business around Flotsam Island (the first time around).

Otherwise its been a bit of DQ VII here and a touch of FFTA2 there with some solitaire on the side.
