It's a Japanese cultural thing.  Blood type "supposedly" gives some insight to their personality traits.

Also on RPGFan's front page.

Tons of new screens and info today.

I have to hand it to GUST, their character models are getting very impressive.  Regina's (red-head) model looks incredibly similar to her art.  The issue more now is the longer hair modeling, and lack of animation, but that's always a problem. Not all games can do it as well as Alice did - nor do I expect them to.  The 3D backgrounds are cleaner and more detailed as well.  I think, no matter how you feel about the gameplay in the series, there's no doubt that GUST has graphically been improving non-stop.  Very impressive for a company of only 30 people split into multiple projects.

Keithgrif is pretty nice as well, but we'll see how he compares to Gio.

Very curious to see how Siliconera's mention of the lack of time limit works here, because I am seeing a calendar in the corner. Possibly they've simply removed it while changing areas?  That alone would make it much less strict.

Demon's Souls servers to go Offline next month

Fuck, no. :(

I'll have to play the shit out this game soon to see if I can finally get the dumb Pure Bladestone. I need that Platinum Trophy in my life.

wait you can't get it without the servers on? do you have to get phosphorecent pole for platinum too? (can't remember) i wish there was a way to patch it so it wouldn't matter the servers are going down.
 

You can get both offline just fine.  I think he just doesn't want to farm it and wants to have someone drop it for him. Platinum in both Dark and Demon's are both possible with no online at all.

Honestly, considering some of the subject matter in Xenogears, I'm amazed they hesitated with a name.

Riot Peak's pretty easy in this game.  If you die, you don't have to go through all of the battles to go up again, you can just skip right to the top.

Even the "final" Riot Peak battle is relatively easy.  The only issue is that one of the girls has pretty much a perpetual Ironstance on (not as bad as in the battle in Zhonecage, where it's almost impossible to stun her), so it can be annoying.

Tip: In Future Arc, the boss in Riot Peak is the best way to farm money.  On Chaos, NG+, you earn about 130,000 Gald per one minute battle.

More of the Prada pics have been revealed.

I suppose it was a bit too much to hope for a clean-shaven Snow?

On the other hand, Sazh looks best. Again.

Nah, I think Aston not sending Asbel to the Knight Academy was a better choice.  Young Asbel obviously had his head in the clouds, he was an immature child (who isn't at that age?), and still hadn't even when the arc ended.  Give him three or four more years and he would have matured into a fine lord and accepted his duty. The child does not always know what's best for them; it's up to the parent to make the long term decisions.

Part of the point of the first half of the game is to show that Asbel going to the Knight Academy made him physically stronger, but did not develop him in other areas. Meanwhile, every other character developed physically as well as emotional strength.

Yeah, I'm extremely excited about Artorias.  Here's to hoping it's not going to be GFWL-only.

Spencer from Siliconera, who has been leaking the XIII-2 DLC since release (he correctly leaked all of them - sans maybe Pupu, which I don't believe he mentioned), says that the Lightning story DLC isn't the last.  I wouldn't say they're done yet.
805  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Crimson Shroud - Matsuno's Newest Game on: April 11, 2012, 01:32:02 PM
Yeah, I've. . .no idea what they were thinking.

Tam has my favorite Big Bridge.  And, to keep it FFXIII-2 related, he also did a mix of one of the XIII-2 battle themes.  He mixes his violin with the official music, so it ends up very nice:

It's pretty low quality, but here it is.  It's. . .an interesting take. Different.  I'm not sure if I like it (I'll have to listen a few more times), but I can respect it.

Edit: After a few listens, I have to say that I really, really like the first two minutes, but after that the song just falls apart.

Gilgamesh battle.

Also, his dialogue when he shifts styles is great.

Given it's a side-story and an ARPG, I can see XSEED getting to this relatively quickly.

Or not, given it's a PSP game.

Slightly more information here:

A bit too pricey for my tastes, unfortunately.
