Nintendo led off with that whole Zelda tribute.

After that it was hearing that we're getting DQMJ2.

Basically E3 was hearing Nintendo say that Zelda's 25 now. From here on it's a race between her and her boobs to see which sags to the ground first.

In VP2, you basically need to follow the 10 commandment:
- Thou shall do every side dungeon (talk in town to discover them), lest miss a very important sealstone pouch.
- Thou shall only use archers or heavy warriors with good movesets.
- Thou shall not rely on main characters but instead on einherjar.
- Thou shall put everything on offense for defense serves no purpose.
- Thou shall stack 'slayer' effects.
- Thou shall use the 'dismember' skill.
- Thou shall sealstone to thy advantage.
- Thou shall sealstone woes the thy foes.
- Thou shall never buy a sealstone costier than 10,000 crystals.
- Thou shall forget the rule above if you play an archer group for elemental sealstone exploitation.

Or if you're a maxi-OCD-sperg then only use Story characters, level them all way the fuck up as soon as possible, and never get rid of a single einheriar until the Gate where you can farm the best dropable equipment in the game, then load them up to your einheriar and then send them up for a metric fuckton of statboosters.

It's more that throughout the main story, the story characters play musical chair. I never understood why devs think this is an awesome idea.

True. But if you do it right, by the first or second round of musical companions, you'll be inundated with enough awesome gear that the main character and that guy who looks kinda like a proto Papa Nier can basically solo the rest of the game.

Otherwise yeah, the game was terrible with party members/einheriars since most party members were refugees from Lenneth and the einheriar were mostly just there to fill in your ranks in the meanwhile.

Also terrible with that breaking stuff off of enemies.

So yeah. Any Tail Concerto fans out there? You may rejoice now.

For the rest of us.... Eh, it could be worse.

One thing that makes me blue: it's alllllll about fucken shooters lately.  I don't mind a good one shooter, but by god, it seems that everyone is riding the Black Ops train right now. 

Well then, prepare for some good news then....http://www.siliconera.com/2011/06/15/following-xenoblade-chronicles-what-are-monolith-soft-up-to-now/

That said, how good is up to debate but at least this is the best news of the last week and a half.

Ok, since some of you are being a little thick and ignoring what I said, let me quote from that story.

Quote
"As you may know very well, with the PSP market, the situation is very different in Japan than outside of Japan," said Kitase when speaking to us at E3 2011. "We are having to be very very careful in how we decide what would be the best way to deliver the game to all the gamers."

Here's the important part:

Quote
"We are having to be very very careful in how we decide what would be the best way to deliver the game to all the gamers."

This is not "we may not release it at all", it's "we may not release it on PSP and if so we will port it to another platform". Seriously, a first year Vita release would not surprise me, or at least a simultaneous release on PSP/Vita/other platforms.

... Come to think of it, just how big ARE 3DS cards? EDIT: Found my answer, up to 8GB. So, yeah, at worst it receives a 3DS port for the US that's exactly the same but with 3D effects stuck in.

Ok. Now that's just silly.

Even if they do port it over to the 3DS they're going to have to overhaul the game to get it to display on the smaller (and maybe less detailed?) 3DS screen. And if they're going to do that they may as well just port it onto a bigger system to begin with.

That said, I wouldn't put it past them if they were going to port it to the Vita.

Probably something like in The Witcher 2. Lightning spells deal more damage when it's raining / fire less.

That's all very well when in a Lightning or Snow storm but what about the other guys? Fang storms aren't exactly a common occurrence ya' know.

Forget this game and VC3 (and Growlanser, hahahahahaha...oh wait, you were serious...), we might not even get Type-0.  The PSP is officially dead in the west...


Jesus... did 3rd Birthday and the FFIV remake sell that poorly?
Must take a lot to get Squeenix to reconsider a Western release.

Actually its the PSP itself that's the problem. Go to any retail store like Best Buy, Target, Walmart and count how many different titles they have on hand. You'll find that you'll be lucky enough just to find where they keep the five or so of them. Basically, while the PSP has finally turned it around in Japan, the UMD format died long before (re. PSPGo), and in the west, the system has been on it's deathbed since. Hell even in places like GameStoppo they may have one of those mini-shelves holding PSP titles and most of that's of those terrible UMD movie ports that choked the system's early years. Frankly, it's a goddamn miracle that we even saw the Tactics Ogre remake nevermind the Falcom games (seriously, Ys 1 & 2 might as well have never existed, it vanished into the night on a trail in the sky before I could bump into it, I guess that's why they call it Vanishing Ys).

If there's any chance of some of these PSP games to come over it'll likely come as a PSN download.

Finally located the last grotto boss for me in DQIX. Now all I need is his Angel Robe, a top level Ice grotto deep enough to get it's final encounters, and to clear that 99 grotto I have sitting around in my inventory then I can focus on the legacy bosses and maxing out my levels. Also whatever quests, accolades, and alchemiracles I still have left outstanding after this.

Highly unlikely since the WiiU isn't just a controller but also a new box. They just didn't really show it this time, but you can see it in the WiiU video.
5503  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Next Vanillaware Title to be Grand Knight History on: June 13, 2011, 09:27:45 PM
Will this even come to USA?

I don't have any basis but I have a feeling we'll stop seeing new releases here

I agree, we saw the same type of onslaught from the snes - n64 transition. No love for a LOT of rpgs that were too close to the death of snes to come over here.

And unlike the SNES (or PS1 and PS2) the PSP isn't pulling strong still in software sales. ON THE OTHER HAND none of those had the digital distribution method, or even plans to allow the prior gen games to be released and upgraded for the new console, so if retail is out of the question for a lot of titles then at least maybe they'll go and put them on the PSN, or release them as VITA games instead (and probably give the system an unusually strong first year).

I'll believe it when I see the Growlanser games on the PSN.

Until then, WHERE'S GROWLANSERS DAMMIT!?! (Also VC3?)

The Final Fantasy games with the GBA link cable were extremely fun, but it was very difficult to find friends with the hardware.  I splurged on 3 link cables for my friends, and FF:CC, and it was so much fun.  The girls thought it was cute how the three of us were sitting up straight, actively co-operating... it worked well.

Not saying it wasn't a commercial failure.  Stuff like that needs to be delivered with the initial hardware, and Nintendo is doing that now, so I think it'll be good.  By the way, where the hell was the DS/Wii functionality?  I thought for sure we'd get a Crystal Chronicles games to do that.  Was Nintendo too scared after that Gamecube flop?

They did do that with FFCC:Echos of Time. You got to play a DS game on either your DS or your Wii (versions sold separately).

As an European gamer and fan of RPGs, I think this is absolutely hilarious. Yay for karma!

And the worst part is that I can't even say FFVI anymore. You fucks got it on the VC months ago and we're stuck with either the slow and crashy as hell PSX version or the washed out/horribly tinny GBA port (although thankfully we DO have something to tide us over in Chrono Trigger from a few weeks ago).
