I don't think we'll see this for a few years, since XSEED's localization of the second and third Trails games seems to be in development hell.

At the rate XSeed is going it's going to be a decade.  I wish that was an exaggeration, but it's not.

I love XSeed's localization, but it just isn't viable at this rate.  It's not at the level of "wait for it" but rather, "it ain't gonna happen unless somebody else steps up."

Isn't the YLOD a power supply failure, or just a generic failure display? I forgot as I only knew 1 person to ever get it.

No, it's a problem that happens when either the CPU or GPU overheats.  They used cheap solder (well, blame the European Union for banning lead-based solder in 2006) that can fail when the chip they're connecting gets too hot.  The fix is to use a heat gun or something to reflow the solder.  Even if it was only temporary, the fact that I got it working again at all by doing this says there's something to this.

It's actually fundamentally the exact same issue that causes the Xbox's RROD, ironically enough.

And actually, I wish it was the power supply.  The power supply is easy to replace.  I could do that in like 15 minutes.

What you need to do is run a backup as quickly as possible if you get that running again.  Then, at least, you won't lose your save data if it permanently dies.

Not too worried about that, actually.  I upgraded my hard drive only recently and still have the full system backup I did then.  And after that I joined PS Plus, so I've got cloud saves.

No, I intend to fix this thing.  Like I said, the fact that I got any results is promising.  There are various things I can do better, like adding flux when I do the solder reflow.  Unfortunately I'm off to vist family for the holidays pretty soon so it might have to wait until I get back.

This looks great.  PS3 and Vita?  Hopefully that means crossplay.  Start a game on your PS3 and continue it on the road.  What more could I ask for?  Oh right, localizations...

I wonder how closely tied in this is with the other Kiseki games.  At some point you have to wonder if skipping some titles makes sense.  Actually, localizing something like this could raise the profile of the other titles if they ever did get localized...

It's aliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiive!!!!!

I successfully managed to rescue my PS3 from a YLOD!  I have to say, I was skeptical as to whether or not the YLOD fix would actually work, but the results speak for themselves.   And hopefully now after cleaning out the internals and putting the new fan in the old girl will keep going for a while yet.

Well that was premature...the fix didn't last very long, YLOD'ed again today.  I guess I'll give it another shot.  Maybe do it for longer this time...

E.X. Troopers seems pretty multiplayer-centric.  I think it might be tough to take advantage of that from overseas.  While there is a single-player campaign you unlock co-op missions as you go through it and you pretty much need to do them for the XP.  Though I guess there is the option of doing them with AI companions so it's still doable.

I don't think it's fair to call this a Star Ocean tease.  Yes there were stars...but that's it.  There was literally nothing else to indicate that it had anything to do with Star Ocean.  But a bunch of people jumped to conclusions.

Do you have any idea how many video games are set in space?

I guess I'm supposed to sound more like this.

Seriously, though, this is what I expected.

And browser games are a big deal, not just in Japan.  They're cheap to make and anyone can play them (just need a computer with a web browser, no specialized systems, etc), so the potential for profit is huge.
2004  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Square-Enix is teasing something. on: December 11, 2012, 10:29:58 PM
Well I honestly can't say I'm surprised.  This is about what I expected.

Actually it doesn't look half bad for a browser game.  But I'm a sucker for oldschool 4X stuff.

That's odd, I had the site left open and the countdown was still going (about 6 minutes left) when I read these posts so I refreshed it and now says zero.  What happened to those 6 minutes?
2006  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: December 11, 2012, 06:29:34 PM
Well damn, my PS3 is officially YLOD'ed now.  I guess that's not too surprising since it was having fan problems and the YLOD is an overheating issue.  I think I'm going to try to fix it but I need to get a heat gun.
2007  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGz you want HD'd/Remade on: December 11, 2012, 04:33:09 PM
Sega never said anything official about Skies of Arcadia HD.  There were tons of rumours and speculation, though.
2008  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: December 11, 2012, 01:58:04 AM
Since apparently I have been replacing fans in all my electronics lately...

My PS3 has really not been running well.  I mentioned in crashed in the game journal thread while I was playing Tales of Graces f, but that was just the beginning.  Pretty sure the fan is dying.  So...new fan time!

So I took apart a PS3 for the first time.  Of course I don't actually have the replacement fan yet, but hey, taking things apart is fun.  Man, the old PS3s are beautiful on the inside.  Tightly engineered machines.

The driving dog saga continues!

Am I the only one completely amazed by this?
2010  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Square-Enix is teasing something. on: December 10, 2012, 02:28:04 AM
Here.

Some people are speculating that it's a new Star Ocean game but I'm not sure I buy it.  Well, it's certainly star-y.
