Wow, talk about sleazy.

I admittedly don't know about IV because I haven't played it, but I-III were light when it comes to the story, not much more than the average game in the genre.  I think you might be getting fooled by the artstyle or its publisher/developer; the story is really just there to give a reason for the dungeon and its enemies inside to exist.  It's all about the gameplay.

Of recently-released first-person dungeon crawlers, Unchained Blades had the most story to it.  That particular game has so much story to it that I actually wanted it to be quiet and let me just go through my dungeons.

But, absolutely, try the demo.  You might find you enjoy the genre more than you'd expect.

If you don't like first-person dungeon crawlers, you won't like EO.  It's an easier Wizardry with eastern, lighter-colored designs instead of western, darker designs.

That's not to say it's bad, mind you, simply that it probably isn't going to be something you enjoy.

Holy fuck, the giant mech.

Holy fuck.

I am literally sitting here with my mouth open barely able to type let alone express my thoughts properly. While I doubt it's related to Gears/Saga in any way, that's still more than enough to make my week.

while forcing players to use two of their three “free” hourglasses during the tutorial, before you even see the title screen.

I...wow.  I mean, there's a lot wrong with just about everything in this game, but that one takes the cake.  I can respect this model to some extent, such as in F2P games, but there comes a time when it's simply too far.

Thank you very much for posting this;  Mitsuda has been my favorite for years; I had no idea he was working on Soul Sacrifice.  I'm not really interested in Kickstarter, but I might donate some if he does choose to start.

This year is off to a great start. I'll definitely be picking this one up, if only because X and Zero are both in it :D

Also, HEY SQUARE CAN YOU GUYS LOCALIZE SOMETHING NOW PLEASE KTHX

But you got FF: All the Bravest!  Surely that will hold you over until Lightning Returns, right?

. . .Right?

G-Guys?
848  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Project X Zone on: January 21, 2013, 01:49:10 PM
This is, quite honestly, the last game I expected to get localized.  Wow.
849  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Square Enix is making an FF thing on: January 20, 2013, 04:31:12 PM
I have to admit, that flavor text link was rather amusing. 
850  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Square Enix is making an FF thing on: January 15, 2013, 10:15:46 PM
Or another iOS game.  If we're lucky(?) it might be a 3DSware title.
851  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atelier Ayesha on: January 15, 2013, 08:47:32 PM
That's earlier than I expected. It used to take about a year from the Japanese launch to get the titles released in the west, now it's about 8 months.  The Prinny Bomb didn't have any news of a special edition, so I hope there will be one, if for nothing else but an artbook and soundtrack.
852  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atelier Ayesha on: January 15, 2013, 02:13:46 PM
I'd bet a good deal that in the US there was a prolonged publishing debate that may not be entirely cleared up.  NISA has been releasing the Atelier, and GUST titles in general, for about 8 years now (since 2005);  they've proven profitable and it would be unwise to let go of them.  Of course, they may not have the choice.  I've no doubt it will be released in North America, just maybe a bit later.
853  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dark Souls on: January 15, 2013, 01:03:42 PM
I-I don't even know what I can say about that.  There are words, but they're all slipping away.
854  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atelier Ayesha on: January 06, 2013, 10:27:30 AM
I liked Rorona, but I also liked the older titles, which were even stricter; somehow I've a feeling they wouldn't be too popular around here.

Ayesha's story is, on the surface, somewhat similar to Totori's. Ayesha lives alone after her guardian died and her sister "disappeared" while out. One day, while she's collecting ingredients, she thinks she sees her sister, thus, provoking her to go search for clues to her fate.

On a related note, if anyone's interested:

Yeah, Deja, that's what I was referring to.  I don't even know where I got Lefa from.  Thanks for the correction.
