I love Skies of Arcadia, I'll definitely buy it again.

I read through the thread, but couldn't find any information in it.  Has a date for the demo been released?

The Bravely Default name actually makes sense now that he describes it.  It doesn't make it less Engrish-y, of course, but I understand its connotation and it's no longer just random words thrown together.

Hmm, judging from what I see going around, people are more upset with the idea of censoring the game in general.  I'd say the minority within the minority actually care about the bath scenes, and even fewer find them sexy or attractive, but the shitstorm is because NISA is altering content.

Or maybe I'm just trying to internally rationalize something I don't understand and am completely off.

I admit, it baffles me how people on certain sites are so fiercely defending Mugen Souls.

I think NISA made the right choice in censorship here.

Legasista is roguelike-ish.

Hundred Knights is real time and open world. It's an ARPG, I believe.

Mugen Souls- Yep, seems like fairly typical !f/Compile Heart.  I felt creepy reading that aspect Kevadu pointed to.  But a part of me is still somewhat morbidly curious if the "altered" aspects affect the game any (i.e. both the Japanese and NA versions of the Albedo-Momo torture scene in Xenosaga I got the point across, even if they were different).

Witch and 100- As long as this game is better than that DS game A Witch's Tale, then there's hope.  The game does have that Halloween cutesy appearance, but again, I feel totally creepy looking at that protagonist.  

That Albedo torture scene actually ended up creepier without the blade.  I mean, would you rather see someone cut their head off with a knife, or rip it off with their hands?  

Also, a Witch's Tale was partially developed by Hit Maker; Hundred Knights is entirely a NIS product.

What needed censoring?  I haven't been watching the game.

I refer to my previous post.

Thanks.  That's a bit too much for me.
864  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: NISA Announces 3 PS3 RPG Releases on: March 30, 2012, 02:31:03 AM
I'm dumbstruck Mugen Souls is coming here. Then again they ARE censoring some stuff, so maybe it shouldn't be a huge problem.

I AM interested in the other two games though.

What needed censoring?  I haven't been watching the game.

And likely you'd need a game that'd also draw in the WD crowd more. If this were, say, Growlanser 1 you'd probably have a lot of people eager to throw money at this, whereas here it's... even if it's better will it have become something I WANT?

I'd donate to a Growlanser fund, I admit.
866  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Class of Heroes 2 Kickstarter by MonkeyPaw Games and Gaijin Works on: March 28, 2012, 01:00:43 AM
I adore first person dungeon crawlers, they're probably my favorite subgenre of RPGs.  I found Class of Heroes boring and, no matter how hard I tried, couldn't spend more than 10 hours with it.  I can't say I'm all that interested unless they made some changes to the formula.

That said, I think this type of thing is an understandable idea.  Localization of these games is a niche within a niche.  To reduce the risk, let those who are willing to assist do so. Now if this was for a larger game and a larger company? Absolutely not.
867  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Sting and Idea Factory performs the Fu-Sion-Ha dance and becomes Super Sting on: March 27, 2012, 03:28:52 PM
Haha, well, there would be lots of death and strategic losses.  Actually, I can't see Hakuoki effectively becoming a SRPG because you'd have to lose 2/3 of the battles in the last few chapters of the game.

Still, if they found a way it might be interesting.  Actually, the very premise would be neat.  Usually SRPGs are about outwitting your foes through tactics, but Hakuoki is all about lost causes, no matter how skilled you are.

Generation of Chaos is pretty much IF's best SRPG series.  The older ones at least were much better than their newer games, with true strategy and lack of grinding. That's not to say it's a brilliant SRPG, but it's unquestionably better than their recent offerings. 

This game might be better than expected, given this is one series that IF actually has a solid background with.
869  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: March 25, 2012, 11:02:42 AM
Actually, quick Q.  I think I may have missed it by this point...  Why in the world was Hubert given up for adoption???  

There's a short sidequest you can do for it, but you might have missed it.  Maybe not, though.  I think it's in one of the optional Inn Requests in Lhant.  There are actually a few sidequests and side events you can do that elaborates on the Lhant family.  There's a really sweet one right at the start of the future Arc, for example.

It's pretty much what you'd expect.
Code:
Obviously, there can only be one Lord of Lhant.  Aston, Asbel and Hubert's father, also had a brother.
His brother was bitter that Aston became Lord and ran away; he was eventually killed and their relationship was never mended.
Aston did not want that hatred to persist between his sons, and, given Asbel was firstborn, he got to stay.

You're speaking a tad bit too soon about the puzzles.  The final dungeon has a few good ones, and did you go to the Sandshroud Ruins?  There's a really long puzzle there that has to do with colors and switches and paths.  It's like those light puzzles from Snowshroud, but more complex.

The Future Arc dungeons all have gimmicks of some sort as well.  Most of them are more annoying than "puzzling" though.
