It's short for Playable Teaser.
17  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: P.T. on: August 13, 2014, 11:51:57 PM
Er, is it an RPG? I thought it was survival horror/Silent Hill, so I think you might have posted in the wrong section, but whatever.  I certainly wouldn't mind more Survival Horror RPGs (Koudelka, anyone?).

The demo is basically atmospheric eye-candy.  The lighting is amazing.
I'm not sure if I'm happy or sad that the teaser isn't representative of the full game.  It does seem like it'll be third person, though, so there's that.

I'm not exactly a big fan of Nendos, I hate how they're so delicate, but yeah, I agree the style tends to work better with Bravely Default.  I really want to like the Magnolia figure, but there's just something holding me back.  I'll have to chalk it up to Yoshida's designs just not working terribly well in real life.

I do have to say I'm fond of the hips of Yoshida's designs, though.  Garuda from FFXIV is...yeah.

I haven't played it, so I admit I'm not the best person to comment, but it seems like it's not really your style.  It's top-down, so more like the games you couldn't get into.

According to this handy link just below, TitS FC is Xseed's most successful PC release to date. Here's hoping this means we'll be more likely to see The Third.

https://www.facebook.com/XSEEDGames/photos/a.207802608353.129865.163718093353/10152301561688354/?type=1

Well, if you want me to nitpick, it says it's their best launch, not their best-selling PC game.

That said, it revives a bit of hope that the west might, possibly, in the future see the titles that were pretty much in "never, ever going to be localized" territory. As in, everything after SC. I suppose it really all depends on SC still.

I haven't really been on the KanColle bandwagon, but I absolutely adore the design of the weapon/girl/thing who looks like a mix of a deep sea creature/Eldritch abomination.

Poor Ayesha?

Not really, it wasn't a particularly bad dub.
23  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Second on: August 02, 2014, 04:48:58 PM
So what the hell does that mean for the asterisk holders that are dead/unable to fight because of storyline fights?...meh whatever.

I hope the game has a bad end where we fail to save Agnes. If so, I will get that ending and call the game done.

Actually, considering the theme of the first game, and the title, I wouldn't be surprised if you're not supposed to save Agnes.  For example, the game starts out trying to save her, and you "Bravely Default" on your duties for whatever reason.

. . .It would certainly be an interesting take on "Save the girl" at least.

I feel like such a bad person for wanting Qada and De Rosa to return.  They're such horrible, evil assholes.

Also wtf is the Library log?

I'm trying to remember exactly what they call it in-game.  You first encounter it in the classroom, but you can eventually use it from the menu.  It updates based on where you've been and what you've heard about.  If I remember correctly, it's the same tab that has the battle statistics and should be under "Tutorial."  It's exactly what I said it is: A lore tab.  It has all sorts of neat information on politics, religion, history, and minor characters.

Forgive the derail, but I severely disagree with the FFVIII example.  If anything, it's one of the first FF that actually did bother with world building. The issue is that it isn't presented to you up front - it's all in the little Library log, which is essentially a "lore" tab.  It's actually some pretty interesting reading.  I wish I had known about it my first playthrough.
27  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: August 02, 2014, 12:21:43 AM
Isn't it one of those shiny collector's edition guides, too?  The soft hardcover ones like they made for FFXIII-2 (and whatnot)?  I love those.

Amazon only says "Hardcover."
28  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Second on: July 31, 2014, 07:05:00 PM
I'm a bit curious as to people's opinions about the Stein's;gate writer, whose name I can't think of at the moment, no longer being the writer of Bravely Second.  I imagine the story might be a lot less mindfucky and meta.  Preferably it'll keep the same tone as the first part of the original BD.

So, uh, reading the last page has me confused.  One person says it's more like RE4. The other says it's like REmake.  They are totally different games, which is it?

(please say REmake).

Curious as to if anyone's played Shallie yet.

From everything I've read there's no time limit. At all.  Not even a really lenient one like Totori/Meruru/Ayesha. It's just completely gone.  Events instead progress based on a different system entirely. "Life gauge" or something, which changes based on how many actions (eg, Alchemy, moving around the map) you've taken.

Now, I can comment on the OST; it has songs partially in English!  Well, as close to English as non-speaking Japanese singers tend to get, so it sounds a bit like the vocal songs in, say, XIII-2.  I greatly prefer this vocal OST to Escha's, but find it inferior to Ayesha's.  Narcolepsist gets special mention as being my second favorite song in the Dusk subseries (it's one you really have to listen to fully to appreciate).

Code:
Also, Ayesha appears!  It's just an unimportant cameo, but she has a different color scheme now.
