Lack of blood in video games makes Angelus very angry...



Disappointing, yes.  Surprising, not in the slightest.  It is sad, though, that Namco felt the need to go to this extreme just to cover their asses.  I still find it highly ironic that the ESRB label warns about violence.  Don't blood and violence go hand-in-hand?

Ah well, I've already fully preordered it and I've waited this long.  I'll just play this with a sense of something missing...as has been the case with a lot of games lately.

While not the greatest of all time, it was simple and cute.  I found the music rather catchy and the whole game was pretty light-hearted compared to other RPGs of the time.  I think that's nice in its own way.

Quote from: "Morridor"
Art book for Gamestop / EBGames
Life Size poster at Best Buy
Lenticular at GameCrazy

Maybe this will make people happy?

Danny

I'd take an artbook over the latter two bonuses anyday.  hence my preorder at GS.  Still, I'm curious: a life-sized poster of who?  KOS-MOS?  T-ELOS?  Shion?  MOMO?  The Godwin sisters?  (Which I'd actually steal in a heartbeat)

And to echo the above question: What is a Lenticular?

I was talking more in terms of characterization than in fighting ability, actually.  Though I do agree that female heavy hitters are rare.  I just liked the fact that Raquel was artistic in addition to being a swordswoman.

Bah.  Lady Harken > Anastasia.  Barely.

Because demonic, scythe-wielding redheads are the win.

Well, Raquel had some big shoes to fill after Maya Schroedinger's awesomeness in WA3 and she barely suceeded.  Who knows?  Maybe the girls will surprise us.

Either that, or there will be a third female PC who will redefine awesomeness.  :P

Quote from: "Sketch"
A shovel is a badass weapon.
I'll take one over a sword any day!

Hey, it worked for Shawn of the Dead.  :P

I'm hoping there are more than three playable characters.  I can't see why they wouldn't since every WA game since the first had 4+ playable characters.  Those three will probably have the most development, though.

And as for Rebecca looking like a "bad cowgirl themed stripper", I'm not sure I'd go that far.  The Daisy Dukes are not working for me, though...

Personally, I'm hoping Michiko Naruke retains more of a presence in the soundtrack this time.  Splitting the work between 3-4 composers ended up producing something that wasn't that bad, but wasn't that great compared to the music from WA2 or 3.  The music is one of my favorite things about the series, so I do hope it comes back up to par.[/b]

Well true, XSeed has only brought two RPGs to the domestic market, but I still don't think they're done.  They did say they'd go beyond RPGs, so I'm urious as to what they'll bring yet.  I'm just saying that two games released in close proximity to each other isn't that bad for a new company.

I can think of worse things to use as weapons in a western-based RPG.  Frankly, I think using a shovel as a weapon is a rather practical idea.

I'm still concerned about the 1 guy, 2 girls setup for the 3 main characters.  I'm hoping it'll at least play out like Skies of Arcadia, where a romantic triangle WASN'T at the center of the plot (and it very easily could have been).  I suppose a romantic triangle it could work if done well enough (Psst!  Multiple endings please!), but I've seen the ploy used so much in RPGs that I'm starting not to care for it too much.

Gaijinworks?  I guess some people don't know when to quit.

Though what games are left that he can actually bring over?  NISA, Atlus, and even XSeed have done a better job bringing the relatively obscure stuff over.

The designs in this one seems to have a middle ground approach for me.  It's not as "popularized exaggerated anime" looking as Episode I, but it isn't as "realistic anime" looking as Episode II, either.  A little consistency would have been nice, frankly.  Hell, I'd have liked it if this was the look for the whole series.
402  Media / Single-Player RPGs / The future of Squeenix's GBA ports on: August 06, 2006, 12:17:21 AM
Well, with all the FFs being ported to the GBA over here, at least no one will be able to say that we're missing a link anywhere in the FF chain now.  Well, excluding ROMs, but they're evil anyways.  :P
403  Media / Single-Player RPGs / The future of Squeenix's GBA ports on: August 04, 2006, 01:48:55 AM
Ah well, it's still all good either way.  It was a fools hope, anyway.

That reminds me, I should pick up FFIV Advance at some point.  Just out of curiosity, how is the translation?  Is it the same as the PSX port or did they do another all new one.  Considering there is supposed to be new material, I'd expect all new work, but you'd never know.
404  Media / Single-Player RPGs / The future of Squeenix's GBA ports on: August 04, 2006, 01:35:02 AM
Considering they've already remade the first Seiken Densetsu game (that was Sword of Mana, right?), I'd love to see a port of SD 2 and 3.

Something that I'm wondering about the FF GBA ports: Are those going to be remade like FFIV was as well or would we be likely to see them remade like FFIII?  Not that I'm in love with the FFIII graphics or anything, but a part of my soul is still hoping for an in-game look similar to the FF Anthology PSX movies.
405  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Xenosaga Episode III: Also Sprach Zarathustra on: August 04, 2006, 01:28:17 AM
Love is a many splintered thing.  And so is the Xeno series.  I'm among those that are sad to see it go, but am also glad that it's ending where it is.
