31  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGs you're ashamed to like? on: April 07, 2014, 12:39:04 PM
When Grandia first came out for the Sega Saturn and I imported it, I was ashamed because it was all in Japanese and I couldn't explain to any of my roomates what was going on in the story.  The game was (and still is) awesome, so I regret nothing nowadays.

Nowadays, I think I might be ashamed of liking anything released by Working Designs.  Particularly the Lunar series, Growlanser Generations, and Vanguard Bandits.  They're all great games, but I also know that the localizers knowingly (and at times gleefully) went off the original script and displayed a lack of restraint when it came to their twisted sense of humor.  I hang around the anime/JRPG purist community enough that I do at times feel bad for liking those games when I should condemn Vic Ireland and his staff to eternal burning for mucking up the original script.  Then I have to remind myself that I just don't care, because WD's work made what would likely have been a dull script actually entertaining.

Good guesses, but too depressing for this game (although depending on your definition of "sad," normal might be the same as that). Eh, I'll just give the answer.


Huh.  Not what I would have expected, to be honest.  Not that the option is unwelcome...

I'd love to see another Wild Arms game, but I haven't liked where the writing for the past few have gone.  Not that any of the games ever were high literature to begin with, but I'd felt lukewarm towards the storytelling in 4 and 5.  I never did get around to finishing XF...

Based off of my use of Google translate, it appears that there are 9 endings with trophies for the game, including 7 character endings, a normal end, and....if you are familiar with this type of game you can guess ending number 9.
Thanks, that is encouraging.  I've found myself liking a few of the girls based on Atlus' introductions and the demo, though there isn't anyone i particularly dislike, either.

I wonder if ending number 9 would be a "Sad" forever alone ending, or a "Nice Boat" ending...

Played the 3DS demo and actually enjoyed it, even though it was a glorified tutorial that just barely gave you a dip into the pool.  Preordered it as soon as I was done.

I guess I'm weird in that I actually enjoyed the English voices.  The dialogue in games like these are usually going to be excessively campy, though that's not always the case, so I just roll with it.  That usually helps in games like this unless I find the acting really terribad. 

I'm still wondering if each of the girls have their own story or endings, or if they're just fun little archetypes to make babies with and save the world, though.

As if my avatar didn't make it obvious: Maya Schrodinger.  Classy dresser, badass adventurer, and a total bibliophile.  What more could I ask for in a waifu?

EDIT: And because why not for husbando material, I'd take Gilder from Skies of Arcadia.  I'd dance for him anytime.  Too bad he never stays still long enough to be caught.  :P

I was worried for a while because all I heard about was "SHINY GRAPHICS!!!".  Seeing some gameplay has made me feel a lot better about this game.

That silver-haired chick looks like trouble.  I like her already.

I work at an airport  coffee shop and there have been days when I have gotten several tags at a time.  The "rebuilding Norende" bonus was unlocked very quickly.  I only spent a few days playing the demo seriously when I brought my 3DS to work with me, so I was at about 31 (including the freebie from the demo) by the time I completed everything in the demo.

Makes me wonder what it'll be like when I play the full game seriously.

Now that I'm at a point in the demo where I can power-level my classes, this is starting to become a whole lot of fun.  More options to customize my characters with is always a good thing.
41  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: January 10, 2014, 02:22:20 PM
So is the demo pretty much all grinding fetch quests and streetpass tags (for rebuilding Norende)?  Or am I missing something plot-related that I'm actively supposed to do?  It's fine either way since it's just a demo and I'm actually enjoying it a lot (it's been a while since I've played something like FFV or Tactics).  I'm just wondering if there is something specific I'm supposed to be doing in order to complete the demo or get whatever bonuses carry over to the main game (if any).

I need a Doctor.  I might've just exploded from the awesome.  Seriously, this had to happen!

Very happy to see this!

Speaking of love triangles and friends.

Has this thread mentioned Vyse x Aika x Fina?
I hadn't thought of that.  Then again, that's a rare and refreshing example of an OT3 without the typical romantic triangle drama. 

Unlike say, Dean x Rebecca x Avril in Wild Arms 5 where they pretty much fit the same roles as the Arcadia threesome (Hero/Childhood Friend/Mysterious Waif).  That probably wouldn't have been so bad if Dean wasn't such an idiot when it came to noticing a girls feelings, or if Rebecca didn't toe the line of becoming a bitchy tsundere so often.  Sad part is, Rebecca was still my favorite of the three main girls in WA5.  :/

Speaking of Wild Arms triangles, Rudy x Cecilia x Jane was actually quite decent if subtle...well, as subtle as one can get when Jane is involved.

The epilogue in Lunar II is as feel-good as romance endings get.

Yes. When I saw the topic title this is the first thing I went to. Hiro and Lucia, SO good. Lucia's progression as a character is so good too. <3 <3 <3
Echoing this.  One of my favorite scenes was the dialogue between Lucia and Hiro after the avalanche on Zulan Mountain.

I'm paraphrasing here, by the way:

Lucia: "My mission is to meet with Althena and stop Zophar.  I didn't know or care about anything else.  But I realized that the further away I went, the harder and more painful it became to leave.  So I...came back to you..."

Hiro: "I missed you too, Lucia."

It's that moment that you begin realizing that ZOMG She really cares!  Even if she isn't fully aware of that yet.

Fei + Elly in Xenogears ... and all their soul-connected predecessors. Especially the ones that were sorta-parents for Emeralda.
I'm so glad someone else mentioned this.  I swear, take away the humongous mecha and overbearing religious rhetoric and you'd still have one of the best star-crossed love stories I've ever seen.  Hell, I felt for Fei even in the beginning because you knew he and Alice liked each other, but tradition forbade them from ever being together.

Fang + Vanille in FFXIII ... no "romance" made explicit, but if there were an openly gay couple in an FF game, this would be the place to start. I'll never understand why people don't like Vanille's VA. I must have a high tolerance for ... whatever it is about Vanille. And Fang's accent is super rad.
I love Vanille's VA.  Then again, I love hearing accents in dubs besides the usual American.  Vanille's accent really helped to zazz up the typical "genki girl" that she was trying to be, while Fang's accent just made her that much more badass.
