Well 4 episodes in on the Familiar of Zero (1st season) and I'm thinking this is gonna be another fantasy-let-down..... I'm hoping I'm wrong but we will see......

We all told you to avoid it, Klyde!  Why ask for advice if you're going to ignore it...

Yuri is awesome, so is Judith, and Yuri's friend/rival (forgot-his-name). Unfortunately, the rest of the team is a wash of obnoxious tweens who seem to have to prove their tweeniehood every 30 seconds by saying something really immature. The female "lead" is a complete waste of a human being

Disclaimer:  I only played Vesperia in Japanese so there might be some differences in the writing and there are certainly differences in the voice acting, but seriously, what is with all the Estelle hate?  I actually rather liked her characters.  She's a honest, compassionate, selfless, strong-willed person who's perhaps a little naive but not the extent where she seems dumb or anything (and it's completely understandable considering her upbringing).  I can't think of anything about her character that would justify such vitriolic hatred and yet I see comments like this on the internet all the time.

Really, the only people in Vesperia's cast I truly disliked were Karol and Patty.

Reports of Versus's death are greatly exaggerated.

Well, that's what they should have said...

If that's the case then NISA will probably do another printing eventually...though I can't tell you when.

I don't think S-E has any plans to release Type-0 on the PSP in the west.  I suspect we're either going to see a Vita or PS3 port eventually, which is why they're being so quiet about it.

In regards to the second point, the trailer at times 2:21 to 2:22 make my point if you will. And if that ain't a ganking than I do believe I've managed to spot an animation error.

That pinprick?  Really?  It's just a flesh wound.

I don't even know where to begin...I could say more, but here's a couple points:

First of all, there's no sign of a harem here.  The narration specifically says choosing between Toki and Towa, which is a love triangle at most (assuming they even count as different people...).  The other girls are barely even in the trailer and seem to be minor characters, so I don't know how you reached that conclusion.

Second, why do you keep going on about Toki/Towa being 'ganked'?  When does that happen?  Did I watch the same trailer as you...


Also, in regard to your last comment there's actually a very good chance this game is getting localized (my money's on NISA), though nothing has been announced officially.

I like that it's a modern setting, and the story/characters look and sound fantastic.

Seriously?  Look, I liked the (very brief) gameplay snippets we saw a while back, but the story and characters have never impressed me.  Noctis seems like everything I hate about Final Fantasy protagonists rolled into one.

Why do you need an excuse?
2081  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Growlanser: Wayfarer of Time hits PSP / PSN in two weeks!!! on: July 20, 2012, 02:22:01 PM
I don't see how the existence of this game in any way effects the probability of getting TitS: SC.  Mind you, the odds of that were already quite dismal.  But that doesn't have anything to do with Growlanser.

I'm calling it cycles because there's definitely going to be more than one trip into the past. Hell the trailer itself had two separate time traveling montages (one from the first where the prince got ganked and a second under less specific circumstances). And like in Majora's Mask, each time you see the phrase "Dawn of the First Day: 72 hr remaining." you're starting a new 3 day cycle. Seriously, this isn't moon logic here.

I'll grant you that there are two time travelling sequences in the trailer, the first with Toki in the bloody wedding dress and the second in plain clothes.  I still have no idea where you're getting cycles from.  In fact given that they apparenly take place under different cirumstances doesn't that speak against simple cycles?

And when you say "like in Majora's Mask"...what is like Majora's Mask?  Where is the common phrase here?  There's nothing like that.


Another aspect of the trailer that nobody seems to be mentioning is how it's pushing the romance aspect and talks about having to choose between Toki and Towa (wait, aren't they basically the same person...).  That seems like a weird direction to take things in.  There was one brief segment in the trailer (though I remember something similar from earlier screenshots) that almost looked like a dating sim.  But since the rest of the game seems to be from Toki/Towa's perspective...what's up with that?

IGN is reporting it...by linking to the Kotaku article.  Internet 'journalism' at work.
2084  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: *RUMOUR* FF 15 to be open world on: July 20, 2012, 02:51:52 AM
FFXII was good.  Not perfect, but a much better foundation to work from than FFXIII...

Framerate seems kind of low, but that's to be expected.

Not the framerate but rather the number of frames of animation.  Not really the same thing.

The running is awkward as heck at least in part because the way she runs is awkward as heck (i.e., artistic rather than technical problem).

They continue to refer to the guy as the protagonist, which is especially weird when they say (quite literally) that the protagonist is suddenly killed.  OK, so after that they talk about going back in time to prevent it, but it still seems to be entirely from Toki/Towa's perspective.

Battle is pretty much what I expected, which wasn't really high expectations.  Not really impressed.

Third; I still can't figure out if Launch is/are the only playable character(s) or not. It looks like she gets ganked in one cycle and I'd put money on somebody else taking over for gimmick/party building purposes.
Fourth; the plot. With the game borrowing the X day cycle mechanic from Majora's Mask, this leaves a couple of questions.

I have no idea what you're talking about with any of that.  First of all, who is Launch?  What's this about cycles?  They only mention going back in time once.
