Im not really a fan of Chrono Cross' Kid either.
The name is even bad for Japanese standards.

Her design isn't as bad as the way she is drawn.  She looks like she on constant Uppers with her wide eyes and big curved eyebrows.
Her manner of speech is completely unflattering, even for a character.  And to the impact and importance her role is to the story, I actually would have preferred something more 180'd. 
The scene where Serge is reminiscing at her disappearance, I can't help but ask "what the fuck, man?"

Because doormat princesses are so much better at playing heroin than rude, unflattering, and awkward-looking girls.

Sword of Mana was pretty much worse than the original in every way. Seriously. Can you honestly point out one plot point it DIDN'T fuck up?

Ahh...Hmm...Err...Umm...Daa...Fuu...Soo...Laa...Tii...Doh!!!...I guess it had Niccolo I guess (but now with 100% less drunken stupors which in retrospect doesn't really count either).

But then again it's pretty much a given that Sword of Mana was low hanging fruit to begin with.

Just finished watching episode 19 of FMAB and I've got to say that this episode alone justifies the existence of this version.

Welcome to my barbecue indeed.

Code:
Too bad the lack of Envy puts a damper on what was otherwise a fantastic episode. ):

They're sorta doing that for games like Cave Story and La-Mulana (though I don't know if there's any compensation going around for the translations, especially since they received fan-translations years ago). Also they're getting buffed up for release on WiiWare rather than just getting a straight port.

Actually... that also doubles as why they aren't simply doing this for the fan translated game, it's still an amateur effort. Failing all else there would be the lack of creator input pointing out what was done right/wrong, note how games like Final Fantasy V received a much better localization (for its second release anyway) than the fan effort. SE may prefer skipping on a VC release in favor of a proper re-release with a quality translation.

I did not know that they were retranslating it. It sorta disappoints me since I was hopping that by getting the WiiWare version I would be supporting both the creator of the game and the translators + programmer who provided the fan translation. Instead it will just be the creator plus these guys who I'm sure are doing a fine job, but don't provide translations for games that missed their sell by date.

Damn you JRPG apologists. I will never succumb to your madness. You can't envision that scene realistically happening in any believable situation.


Which scene are you referring to? The Tidus and Yuna Laughing Man scene or anything from any Tri-Ace game ever?

I just remembered that Sword of Mana's ending was shittier than FFA's ending. I'll take tree hugging over the power of friendship any day.

At the very least Julius had the fortitude to maintain his "I'm a bad guy" stance even after getting beaten unlike EVERY OTHER antagonist who breaks down and WHINES ABOUT BEING MISUNDERSTOOD (even Dark Lord did this despite his otherwise blatantly evil name).

I pretty much don't care for JRPG females at all. Granted there are exceptions like Alisa, Tina, Lenneth, and maybe a couple others but few of them are worth a damn when they're outside of your main character's reach. Even games that let you choose between a male and female character mostly assume that you chose the male character regardless of your choice (even if it nets some humorous results in the process).

Why do we have two threads on this?

Welp. I'm glad that I got the last ending for Metroid: Zero Mission when I did because my DS Lite is finished. I could try to effect some kind of makeshift repairs, but it's no longer something I would want to take with me lest it's parts should crumble and scatter (and I've got a trip to San Fransisco coming up too). ;_;

Now you can "Ride the Bull" from the comfort and privacy of your own home.

What's 7th Dragon even supposed to play like? It looks rizzle generizazzle albeit pretty.

It's supposed to be to Dragon Quest what Etrian Odyssey is to Wizardy which makes this all the more depressing.


Square Enix (and other RPG devs from yester-decade) should just PAY nominal fees to the dudes who did fan translations and make them legitimate, then release the games on VC, tack on an additional $1 charge for the translation (to help recover costs), and spread the love. And then MARKET THE SHIT OUT OF IT.

They're sorta doing that for games like Cave Story and La-Mulana (though I don't know if there's any compensation going around for the translations, especially since they received fan-translations years ago).

How to hook up your NES.
5503  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Super Game Journal Turbo II - The New Challengers on: August 10, 2009, 02:06:01 AM
At about 1 hour and 25 minutes in I beat Metroid: Zero Mission on Normal mode with 14% of the items.

One more ending to go (and it should be easy as pie).

Well sorry I don't know what words are jesus >:(*

BTW what IS Status Attack-J for? I never did anything with it.

It does what it says on the tin there chief. Adds Status Effects to your attack. Slap Drain magic on STATK-J and every hit you make will restore your life by a percentage of the damage you deal where the percentage is determined by how many Drains you have equipped. Slap 100 Deaths on STATK and anything without an immunity to Death will always go down like a punk. Pain inflicts Defenseless, Poison, and whatever else it inflicts with each attack.

In reality its not all that great until you start gaining enough spells to have stats to take advantage of this, but it might make your life a little easier until then.

I ended up getting inspired to earn the last remaining endings in Metroid: Zero Mission so that's what I'm doing right now. Currently I'm going for the Normal Mode 15% ending and I've already beaten Ridley and I'm working on getting the Super Missiles. I'm about 30 minutes in right now.
