At the start of the XIII project (2003 or so), Kazushige Nojima came up with a basic mythology, which has been loosely applied to all the "Fabula Nova Crystallis" stories.

So yeah, Pulse, l'Cie, and crystals have been worked in.

He should worked on it longer... the idea of getting fucked by both completing/failing your mission sucks moose balls. :(

Cocoon looks cool though...

Note that while the term is used, I don't think Type-0 l'Cie necessarily work the same way as XIII l'Cie...

Edit:  Also, I don't think there's any Cocoon/Pulse business in Type-0.  The name of the setting is Oriense.

There is literally no game I'm more interested in right now than Type-0.  I was hugely impressed by the demos.  It was everything a modern FF game should be.  Fun combat, massive scale and scope.  I don't want to dwell on this point because it's been beaten into the ground before, but I couldn't stand FF XIII.  Type-0 is everything that game wasn't.

How does it tie into the XIII mythology? Subtle or blatant?

It uses a lot of the same terminology.  l'Cie, fal'Cie, etc.  But other than that I don't think there's really any connection.

I really have no interest in FF Type-0.

Type-0 has been on the Japanese PSN store since day 1.  Unlike Trails of the Sky SC (which originally came out before PSN releases of PSP games were even a thing), Type-0 was designed with a PSN version in mind.  This has already been discussed to death...
2105  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Imageepoch Announcing New Title Next Week on: March 06, 2012, 04:37:09 PM
I agree on its localization chances but it kind of makes one wonder why NISA made that deal with Imageepoch at all...just about all their stuff is on the PSP.  At least we have a good shot at getting Toki to Towa.

And come on, NISA, give us a BRS release date.  They've been completely silent about that game ever since they announced it...

New details.  Looks quite nice.

Yeah, a couple minutes of gameplay footage is just like having played it...

OK, seriously, I've seen that myself already.  That's what I'm basing my "looks good" assessment on.  I still think it's ridiculous to conclude that a game "is awesome" based on so little...
2108  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Shining Series: Biggest Thing in Series History Happening Next Week (This Week) on: March 05, 2012, 06:24:07 PM
shining blade is amazing.

I agree that it looks good, but it's not even out in Japan yet.  How can you say that with such confidence?
2109  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Anime you would most like to see get turned into a new game? on: March 05, 2012, 04:52:50 PM
I'd buy a Maison Ikkoku SRPG and so would you.


What?  I don't even...
2110  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Shining Series: Biggest Thing in Series History Happening Next Week (This Week) on: March 05, 2012, 04:50:53 PM
Wait. They're localizing a Shining game? What!?

It's an Andriasang (i.e., translations from Japanese press) story, so it isn't going to have a thing to do with localization.

A lot of negativity in this thread, but I think Shining Blade looks pretty nice.

The question is, will this game be in the bargain bin in a few months or will it be impossible to find in a few months...I could honestly see it going either way.

Thing is, even if I buy it now I'm not going to play it for a while (I gave myself a moratorium on gaming until I finish my dissertation...).

Anyone else reminded of that terrible Mel Gibson movie, The Patriot?

No

The internet says you're wrong.

Quote
I'm quite looking forward to the notion of dropping a few tomahawks on a few Redcoat skulls. It'll be just like the movie The Patriot! Except with time travel. And without Mel Gibson. And maybe not horrible.

Quote
The tomahawk and the vicious melee attack on the British soldier have a distinctly Mel Gibson’s “The Patriot” feel to them, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the bulk of the game took place in the hit-and-run guerilla tactics that colonial militias were beginning to develop during that time.

Quote
Can you say The Patriot?!?!?

Quote
Or even the Mel Gibson vehicle The Patriot, in which Gibson and Heath Ledger form a rebel militia group to drive the British our of America in 1776.

Quote
Assassin's Creed 3 = Mel Gibson's The Patriot

Seriously, it's not even a small resemblance...just took the first few google hits.

Mini-rant time.  I drive a scooter it's a gorgeous red Genuine Stella, looks sort of like this:


I was out on it tonight, and no fewer than 3 times a car (well, three different cars) did something absolutely batshit crazy and stupid in order to pass me.  I mean shit like passing me on the right at a stop light when there was no right lane.  And all three times the car then proceeded to drive slower than I was going before.  For real.  So you can't even argue that they were in a hurry...

Since these incidents generally happen at stoplights and things, not while I'm actually moving, I generally attribute this kind of crap (this isn't the first time it's happened, though I've never had it happen so many times in one night...) to these drivers not knowing the difference between a real scooter an a 50cc moped or something.  They think they're going to be stuck behind me and then turn into aggressive idiot mode.  Lesson of the day for all of you car drivers: I can go just as fast as you.  OK, sure, I generally avoid highways (none of these incidents happened on a highway though...), but I can (and routinely do) hit 55mph on regular roads without a problem.  Basically anything short of a highway is just fine.  In fact, since a scooter is so light and my two-stroke engine has a lot of torque I can often accelerate from a stop faster than you.  So no, you really don't need to turn into an aggressive idiot just to get in front of me...especially if you're going to proceed to drive slower than I was going.

I mean jeez, if I get hit because some car driver is acting like a complete idiot I'm the one who is going to die...

I really should pre-order this.  Gamestop is the only place offering some sort of pre-order bonus, though...and I hate Gamestop.
