I meant I didn't understand the reasoning behind it.  It's not just used for Metroid-like Castlevania games.  It's used as a generic term any game of that style, even though there are plenty of examples that have been doing it before Castlevania hopped on the bandwagon.

Maybe it was originally used to describe the Metroid-like Castlevania games and then people co-opted it.  That would make sense, actually.

I don't even understand the term 'Metroidvania'.  The Metroid part, certainly, but for me that's never been what Castlevania was about.  When was that term coined?

Neptune isn't in English, and probably never will be...

Of course, if that's not an issue there are other things I would get before it.  But then, there are plenty of games I would have gotten before Trinity Universe or Cross Edge, too...

I think that was a rhetorical question...

While I agree that's pretty stupid that's no reason not to get the game.  It doesn't affect the game in the slightest.  I wouldn't have even noticed if it wasn't pointed out to me...

I don't even like donuts.  I'd rather have a good bagel.

What's this thread about?
3397  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mega Man Legends 3? on: September 30, 2010, 01:10:37 AM
Well, I did own a DS at one point. But this was waaaaay back when it first came out and about the only reason I kept it around was to play the Phoenix Wright games. So it's been a long time since I've even looked at one's gameplay videos.  I'll probably wait and see how MML3 turns out and what the price tag is on the system before considering whether or not to nuke the PSP and 360 to get it. Thanks for the information. ^_^

I've finally figured out why ZeronHitaro is so upset!  Apparently he believes that owning two systems made by different companies is sacrilege and whenever one buys a new system the old ones must be presented as offerings in some sort of ritual sacrifice.

I guess I would be upset if there were true too...

There's a bit of a difference between shifting a series at the start of a generation and in the middle of a generation.

What the hell?  The system isn't even out yet.  And the last one was a friggin PS1 game.  Please explain to me how this is anything like switching in 'the middle of a generation'.

Dude... I hate to break this to you, but tha post was a joke. It's based off an internet joke rant when FF13 went multiplatform.

Oops, guess my sarcasm detector isn't working right today.  That does make me feel better, though...

I played it for a couple of hours today.  Obviously I'm not very far in it but I'm liking it so far.  It really is all about time management, more so than a Persona game, however it's such an integral part of the gameplay that it doesn't really make you feel 'rushed'.  It's more like time is just another stat to manage and you are forced to make choices about how you spend it.

Capcom just shot themselves in the foot.

I don't know how much the rest of you know about Japanese culture (I'm an expert), but honor and shame are huge parts of it. It's not like it is in America where you can become successful by being an asshole. If you screw someone over in Japan, you bring shame to yourself, and the only way to get rid of that shame is repentance.

What this means is the japanese public, after hearing about this, is not going to want to purchase MML3 for any system, nor will they purchase any of Capcom's games. This is HUGE. You can laugh all you want, but Capcom has alienated an entire market with this move.

Capcom, publicly apologize and cancel MML3 for 3DS or you can kiss your business goodbye.

This is the second most retarded statement have read on this thread (the first being ZeronHitaro's piracy comment, but that's already been pointed out).

It's a good thing we have self-proclaimed 'experts' here to pigeonhole the Japanese people into ridiculous stereotypes for us.  Obviously by this logic Final Fantasy VII must have been a huge failure since nobody would buy it after Square 'screwed over' their fans by not putting it on a Nintendo system.  I won't bother to check the sales numbers on that because who needs facts when you have absurd stereotypes?  I'm sure somebody at Square had to commit seppuku to make up for it.

Also, nobody is being screwed here.  It's ridiculous to think that putting a sequel on a different system is even an issue when the game it was a sequel to is already two generations out of date.

You guys are missing the point.  This is the thread where we focus only on the details we don't like while completely ignoring things we might like.

In all seriousness, I never actually played Abyss so I would get it for the 3DS if it actually comes out here...which it won't.
3403  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Nintendo 3DS - Feb 26 - Y25,000/$260-$300, Megaman Legends 3 for 3DS also on: September 29, 2010, 07:24:34 PM
Ugh?  Why ugh?
3404  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of the Abyss 3DS on: September 29, 2010, 01:30:42 PM
I...think I've only heard about like three or four ports to the system, which is actually a pretty small number given today's port-heavy environment.  What are people complaining about exactly?

They don't like the price of the system so they're actively looking for things to complain about.

It's called cognitive dissonance.
3405  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of the Abyss 3DS on: September 29, 2010, 12:35:09 PM
It doesn't matter.  It's not like we're going to see this in the US anyway ;)
