Enjoying the podcast.  Thanks to all who are working hard on it.

Any chance of an RSS feed and/or availability in iTunes?
2  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Vay was just remade and released. on: July 16, 2008, 08:46:31 AM
That is awesome news!

The one thing that worries me about these iPod games is compatibility.  Vay appears to only be compatible with the Touch & iPhone, whereas Song Summoner only works with the Nanos/Classic/5th gen models.  Its not a huge concern, but having to have the right model of iPod to play a particular game could get frustrating.

Septerra Core was a great game.

Great finds!

On a semi-related note, I see that Mazes of Fate is being ported to the DS & will be released very soon (June 24th).  Anyone have any thoughts on this game?  I never picked up the GBA version, but was always curious as to how it turned out.
5  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Dragon Quest IV, V & VI for NA on: May 21, 2008, 08:40:11 AM

Dragon Quest V & VI are listed as "coming soon"

Sega just announced that Landstalker will be coming to the Virtual Console "soon".

7  Media / Single-Player RPGs / DS remakes of DQIV-VI confirmed. on: July 30, 2007, 06:37:46 PM
Great news indeed.  I've read on a few other boards (where users claimed to have translated the original articles) that DQ IV will be released this fall.  If so, expect DS sales to skyrocket even moreso than normal.  2 Dragon Quest games being released in 1 quarter in Japan means a lot of money for both Nintendo & Square-Enix.

I'm very curious as to what sort of touchscreen functionality these remakes will have.
8  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Persona 3 anime? on: June 21, 2007, 09:43:53 PM
Quote from: "Dincrest"
The only MegaTen series I know for sure spawned an anime series was the Devil Children subseries.  There was a Devil Children TV series in Japan.  I think there have been hints and desires for a Persona anime series (i.e. the anime stuff in the Eternal Punishment fan disk), but nothing materialized.

There was also an OVA:

And as usual with everything Victor Ireland touches, its another example of a delay.  The supposed update from last fall never did happen.  In fact, the site hasn't been update since it launched last August.

Compared to most other games today, it's pretty standard. But when it first came out there wasn't much to compare it to.

Therefore it was the best?

At the time it came out, Halo was definitely the best FPS on a console.  But on the PC, no way.

To keep this on topic, I just picked up both the new Pokemon games and am working on Rogue Galaxy on my PS3.  Throw in random bouts of Puzzle Quest on the PSP, as well as a few raids per week on WoW,.

Don't have anything better to say to that ending. Though hopefully, given enough time Obsidian could make an ending that's worthwhile.

Yep, awesome ending.  Obsidian is definitely the more suitable owner if they keep up with wonderful writing like that.

I agree on the technical bit, but the most worrying part is that Obsidian's story/plot skills seem to be nowhere near what they were back in the Black Isle days.

As an example, my comment about the ending of NWN2 with an Good party is that the game ends with a
TPK, or Total Party Kill.  Your whole party dies at the end of the game.
 When that happened, I sat back in my computer chair & thought "There is no way this was written by the same team who wrote Planescape."  Technical issues aside, NWN2 had some serious plot & storyline issues, and that was but one of them.

But the staff at Obsidian kinda... CREATED Fallout.

I fully realize that, but seeing as how both RPGs that Obsidian put out were published by 3rd party companies who, as rumor has it, pushed Obsidian too fast to release their games, that doesn't exactly look good.  Both games also have horrible track records for poor QA prior to release as well as a sparse history of patches.  Knowing that it would be far, far more intelligent to have the better company release a new Fallout game.

Just because the previous devs work at Obsidian does not in any way guarantee they'll do a better job with the game.  I own all of the previous Black Isle games, and love them dearly, but after both purchasing AND finishing both NWN2 and KOTORII, I lost a lot of faith in Obsidian.  

NWN2's ending was frankly one of the most disgusting abortions of a game ending that I've ever seen.  Yes, I was one of those fools who had a totally Good party, and if you know the significance of that, you'll realize just how bad that Obsidian's plot-resolving skills are right now.  God that was a horrible, horrible ending for a game.

Eh. they may as well have given that Interplay's effectively dead, though Obsidian would've probably a more suitable owner.

You can't be serious.  After what Obsidian did with NWN2, there is no way in hell that Obsidian would do a better job with Fallout than Bethesda.

Bethesda has a FAR better track record with RPGs that Obsidian does.
