I remember the 90s...most games didn't have voice acting.  And we were fine with it.

About Zero no Tsukaima...don't the first three seasons only cover like the first 10 volumes of the novels? (It was orignally a light novel series, not a manga)  There are supposed to be 22 volumes when it finishes...so they're going to cram 12 volumes of material into a single season?

Mind you there is probably a lot that can be cut but I still don't see that ending well...

OK, I'm going to quit being sarcastic for a second and respond seriously because honestly I'm sick of this whole 'JRPGs are dead' meme...

Let's look at the list of upcoming JRPGs.  Stupid trailer aside, Graces f is supposed to be a very good game with probably the best battle system in a Tails game yet.  Atelier Totori was a great game even if the style isn't for everyone and Meruru looks like it will be even better.  Xenoblade Chronicles seems to be considered by many to be one of the best JRPGs to come out in the last 10 years.  And even though I've been a very vocal FFXIII-hater I'm actually starting to warm up to XIII-2.  I still think the story will be complete crap but they are doing a lot to improve the gameplay experience.  Famitsu even gave it a perfect score (for whatever that's worth...).

And how the heck has nobody even mentioned Ni no Kuni yet?  That game looks gorgeous.  Definitely deserves more attention.

Europe is getting The Last Story and since NoA finally caved on Xenoblade it's not difficult to think we might get that too.  Further along I'm still optimistic about a Xillia localization, though it looks like that will have to wait until after the "director's cut" or whatever and given the slow localization of Tails games that will probably be 2013 at the earliest.  But if you really want to be complete there are also titles like Neptunia mk. 2 and Agarest 2 in 2012 though I'm much less optimistic about them.

That's just console titles.  Of course if you include handhelds there are even more.  Even in this awkward transition period between handheld systems there are still titles to look forward to like Type-0 (which has been all but confirmed for a western release of some sort, even if we don't know the details...) and Grand Knights History.  Oh yeah, and Devil Survivor 2.

I can't help but think that people are a bit too waxing nostalgic about the 'glory days' of JRPGs.  Sure there were a lot of titles, but how many of them were worth playing, really?  Every game I listed above (with the exceptions of Neptunia mk. 2 and Agarest 2) looks to be at least good, if not great.  If that's what it means to be 'dead', then JRPGs can stay dead for all I care.  There is no shortage of good games for me to play.

Well, there's Tales of Graces F coming out in March too! With FFXIII-2 in January, Tales in March and Xenoblade in April, my console JRPGs will be satisfied for a while! And there's Atelier Meruru around the corner, too. In fact, I think 2012 is gonna be a good year for us!

How dare you be positive!  Didn't you hear what Sagacious-T said?  It's all doom and gloom from here on out!

Nah... some bath robes get too fleecy.  That, and they're only good for so long.  I don't like Hugh Heffing-around in one.  Only good while you're wet.  I'd love to cuddle with a bath towel though (blankets/towels out of the dryer?)

You fool. Stop horsing around w/ old navy robes and get a real cotton one. Fleece robes are fleece jobs.


Robe time is the best time in Yodaland.

I second that.  Robes are awesome.  I would wear mine all day if it was socially acceptable...
2241  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance on: December 11, 2011, 08:42:17 PM
It's Metal Gear in name only.  Totally smacks of Vanquish.  With some Ninja Gaiden and Bayonetta mixed in.

I'm OK with that.

I'm torn between being excited for a new IP from Naughty Dog and disappointed that it's another friggin zombie game...

It certainly looks great, as you would expect.  But I'm going to have to wait until we hear more about how it plays.
2243  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces confirmed for NA on: December 09, 2011, 04:49:22 PM
We got a release date!

March 13th.

To be honest, while I laughed at this at first... for the angle I'm thinking is most likely a problem (people sharing a system, not people juggling accounts) this is actually a great thing. It means siblings or housemates can just get a card for themselves (perhaps the 4 GB one?) and trade the system around that way until they get their own, then use that card on their new system as if nothing happened. No weeding out saves, figuring out how to copy profiles (which would probably be simple anyway), just stick your old card in the new system.

The problem with that scenario is that I recall reading that games are made to use either their own card or the memory card for saves, but never both.  So if a game saves to its own card there is no convenient way to distinguish the two users.

Really, everything about these memory cards so far seems like a confusing mess.  I can understand Sony's concerns about piracy given what happened to the PSP, but it has gotten ridiculous.

Well that isn't how I expected it to work...

Having to buy two overpriced memory cards is better than having to reformat your system every time you swap accounts, I guess...

Famitsu gave FF13 a 39/40... 

According to Andriasang it's 40/40, actually.  Where did you get that number?

You're thinking FFXIII-2. There was quite a bit of commotion over the 39/40 for FFXIII, though with the way Famitsu is now that actually seemed to mean something unlike, say, 8.8 for Zelda TP.

D'oh...need to work on my reading comprehension.

But yeah, anyway, apparently Famitsu gave FFXIII-2 a 40/40.

after thinking it over i think this is the system seller i've been waiting for. i'm getting a wii instead of a wii u cause there are some game cube games i wanna play too, namely skies of arcadia.

Nintendo has already started removing Gamecube support from the Wii.  Be very careful about which model you get.

So this story has been making rounds: Vita account restrictions.

This really needs to be clarified.  Of course being limited to only one account on a Vita isn't too surprising (though it is annoying) since the PSP was the same way, but it's not clear at all what that means for account activations.  My PSP may be limited to one account for going on the store by itself but I can use a PS3 to manage my content and change the activation of the PSP withoout doing anything to the account info stored on it.  Confusing, I know.  This whole business about having to restore the Vita to factory defaults seems awfully excessive, though.

I know personally this is a pretty big deal for me.  Something like a third of my PSP games are Japanese imports (though that can at least partially be attributed to its limited library here...).  Though this shouldn't affect playing imported games on memory cards it's still a pain in the ass.  Guess we'll find out soon enough since the Japanese launch is almost here...

I don't mind a well placed QTE but having "CINEMATIC GAMEPLAY" in the corner of the screen ruins it. Do they think we're idiots and can't figure it out? Probably.

Er, wasn't that just part of the trailer?  I don't think the actual game does that...at least I don't remember seeing anything like that when I played it at PAX (which had a QTE segment).
