Didn't NISA say they were going to try and distance themselves from Idea Factory because their games were such piles of crap?

And yet here we are with them releasing title after title from them.  What a blast.


Marshmallow: Chaos Wars is a TERRIBLE game.  Like, Superman 64 terrible.

I know that the localization was TERRIBLE but I don't think that the game itself went beyond lame.

Strangely enough, I just got a NES today.

First one I've ever actually owned.  :|

Then I recommend getting all three SMB (at least #3 since that's one of the best in the series), both Zeldas, and as many Megaman games as you can find (#s 2 & 3 are the best among those). That should cover the basics.

Damnit! I just noticed that this news came just a little over a week after the twelfth anniversary since it's original announcement.

Oh well, we at least have Black Sigil to take it's place.

Wow. The inflation has really gone through the roof.

Anyway, let me know when someone buys that elf since I have a couple of bridges lying around that I wanted to sell off.

I'm not expecting much from this, as Gust/Nippon Ichi have failed to impress me for a long while now. Maybe if it hits bargain bins near me I'll pick it up.

It's funny, I love megamix games when they're fighting games, but the only RPG one I've seen that has interested me is Namco X Capcom, which is solidly mediocre. Chaos Wars looks interesting solely for the Shadow Hearts characters, but otherwise this genre doesn't usually have the gameplay to keep me interested. Maybe if they had good stories, but mash-ups rarely do.

As far as crossover RPGs go OG Saga hasn't actually disappointed yet. I'll mention where I currently am for either the OG Saga thread or the Gaming thread.

I didn't like SD3 much. I was actually playing it today. It's kind of slow and gets rids of all the puzzle-solving bits from SD2, where you used your weapons to interact with the environment. It does add a day/night cycle, a weekly day cycle, and class changing, but the first two are more cute than consequential and the latter's just not a very interesting class system.

In all fairness it did have the six characters and three different story lines (even if they were almost identical) versus Secret's almost entirely liner trek (you had a few ways to go about the beginning of the game but after the Witch's Castle you were on the straight and narrow for the rest of the game).

However I too believe SD2 to be the superior game. For instance I still consider SoM's weapon/spell level system to be the best implementation of the idea yet (though they could've done something about charging up for those high level weapon skills). I also adored the wide open areas versus the compartments of SD3. The action gauge to discourage attack spamming versus III's hit gauge that never filled up unless enemies were strong enough to kick your ass. The lack of inventory space in FFA2 along with no rare items (equipment and orbs filled that role however) discouraged you from going overboard on both hoarding and total item dependency whereas FFA3 made it so that with a crappy party you could still do all the essential stuff like status effects and pumpkin tossing so long as you had the cash or were lucky enough to score them from a drop since only one shop in the entire game sold these and only at night and the inventory was limited at best (plus there were so many items to keep track of you had to keep the extras in a separate bag which could only be accessed outside of battle).

Though again, to be fair, you did get to ride on the back of a turtle.

You're not going to get Terranigma on your SuperNES unless you live in Europe or Japan. Illusion of Gaia has a great story but it's liner as hell (almost as bad as FFX) and the one sidequest of the game requires you to not miss a single Red Jewel (in fact I would save that for the second playthrough if I were you). I haven't played Soul Blazer or Actraiser yet.

Lufia I is so old and outdated that even the best story moments can't really save it. Lufia II on the other hand is awesome and should be got.

Ogre Battle if you can find it is fairly good too (I still need to play more of this game myself). Tactics Ogre is also good but you're going to have to go with the PSX port for that one (again unless you live in Japan).

Super Mario RPG is definitely a fun game (plus the Axem Rangers rock).

Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, while not a conventional RPG, is worth getting as no SuperNES is complete without it. Also it's arguably the best 2D Zelda game ever made. Edit: Nevermind.

Somebody really needs to go and update that "Things that happened since DNF was announced" list.

I played Phantasy Star III on the PS3.

The towns look the same and the character is slow and lots of weird dialogues.

Not sure if this is a spoiler:
At the start, you go to prison because your bride gets kidnapped by a demon. WTH

Just for kicks. Before you go off to prison sell some of your equipment and buy an escape pipe. Then when you get thrown into the slammer use it to make your escape.

Man you guys are really slipping. This thread doesn't have nearly enough dicks getting chopped/torn/smashed/bitten off.

That's a pretty sweet looking rock there.

My rocks are better. -_-
