1  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: Today at 01:09:25 AM
So now that I've finally exhausted my interest in Teh 3rd Birthday, I've decided to put it away and get back to some real gaming. Namely starting up some Tactics Ogre.

Helluva choice there --- good job!
I was so happy that there were some tarot card pre-order bonuses when I got around to working at EB.  I made love to that thing once.

More XenoBlade and ALBW.  Just reached Frontier Village in the former and I've rescued three Sages in the latter (Thieves Hideout, Desert Palace, and Turtle Rock).  Both of these games ****ing rock.  Much better follow-ups to the kinda disappointing Arkham City. 

Keep posting!

Turtle Rock was surprisingly tough for me first trying (I noticed everything is out to kill you there)
Desert Palace had a ballin' dungeon, but probably the toughest boss (which...isn't saying much...).
Thieves Hideout ran with a decent idea, I thought.  Wish they took it one step further.  Cool boss.

Frontier Village, I think, has the most quests (and IIRC, a series that single-handedly nets the most exp and rewards far on).  It's also the biggest pain in the ass to walk through.... Fucking adorable Nopon! >:S
Also, in more cool Xenoblade sites: Look up from the top of the village to see the next place...  And I didn't know this, but you can *ACTUALLY* see Colony 9 from Colony 6; it's small, but it's there, and a part of the Monolith's great attention to detail.

I don't really go for these but the alternate names are absolutely perfect

I generally like Fujishima's designs. You might say they're bland but they're easily recognisable. Never been a fan of Inomata, though. Her girls look anorexic and she goes way overboard with the ribbons and other fancy stuff. Oh, and the clashing colours! There are times when I wonder if she's colourblind... I think Leia and Rowen are some of the rare designs I actually do like.

I guess I'm in the minority, but I like Alisha's design. Surei's is alright.  Then again, I don't really judge/critique things that much.

I *love* Alisha's design.... EXCEPT HER FUCKING NONSENSE DRILL HAIR AND CRISS CROSS BANGS.

I don't mind the direction they took with her hair, I just wish they made the drilly and big z (on her right) less obnoxious looking.  Definitely some other directions that they could have taken to be less silly, but then I guess it wouldn't be "unique/interesting" any longer.  Oh well everything can't be perfect I guess.

That's what bugs me.  I think the hair style is fine, just the choice for five separate 'drillies' on different parts of her head are just...distracting as hell.

And crazy =/= unique.
One thing I've liked about Fujishima is that, for the most part, his hair styles are actually do-able.

"We’ve also received Falcom’s blessing to use the majority of Trails in the Sky’s PS3 HD assets, so it’s only a matter of time before we receive them and implement them so even the menus and such display in hi-res."

Close enough for me.

Yeah that....

I like Fujishima but his [admittedly unique] well of ideas is really running dry.  A lot of his Tales designs look like other Tales designs which look like Ah Megami-Sama designs.... x)

I *love* Alisha's design.... EXCEPT HER FUCKING NONSENSE DRILL HAIR AND CRISS CROSS BANGS.



Anyways, Abyssal Chronicles has a bunch of media updates from anime cutscenes to locations (which still look really barren and complete with recycled monsters).  I also *just* noticed that your elemental super friend party members have "colour highligts" that corrospond to their elemental colour.  So no, Edna's hair doesn't just get blonder (i.e. "yellower") at the ends and it all makes sense now.

Man, I'm really lacking optimism for this title.  That battle system looks sweet (thank god), but little else really is.  I'm still trying to get rid of the bad Xillia taste in my mouth and really hope we don't need a Zesteria 2 till things get better.  Naturally, I'm also hoping to be really wrong (and what better to help that than having low expectations now?) 

..Fuckit, I want PS3 Vesperia again, I know 100% it'd be good at least. :(

I'm guessing last major update will be Ganondorf and that head Gerudo whose name I've forgotten.

Naboo?
Naboru...
Naburu... Something.

The chick with the nose who [also] has the hots for Link.

And yeah, I just realized there was no Dorfy reveal yet....

And here I thought Zombie Batman was weird... Is the Dark Knight the new Hello Kitty?

I giggled. x)



What players normally see.




What the enemy sees.

Easily the best gaming-related image I've seen in a while xD
Particularly love Dancing Bart's vivacious pose.  And Galuf's behemoth stance.... and Slutty White Mage....shit they all rock.

^ rendering my perfect playthrough pointless T___T

Here's the blogpost on the...changes...I mentioned already.  I dunno.  You get a small visual for these changes at least!

Who's this "insider" who gets early copies of the videogame mags and scans takes a photo of the image at the tiniest grainy and assy resolution ever? 

Ah well, you can still tell they're gonna love playing with Magnolia's hair in different classes. 

Not as hyped for this as I was the first one, but I will definitely be getting it. Like others said, hopefully they learned from the flaws of the first and make a really kick ass game. The potential is there.

Yeah.  I'll probably buy it anyways given that it's a $40 handheld (and less taxing to play/find time for); but I would love to hear more gameplay deets... Or rather, what's new.  If there was ever a game made with next to no replay value, it was Bravely Default...

I guess the statue of limitations for Sheik's identity as a spoiler is long over though -- not like the Smash games were ever discreet about it either...and the pony tail is nice!

I actuallly *love* the 3DS Princess Ruto design though.  They added those "breast fins" (ô_Ó) to make it look more bikini-like than just strictly topless... Which is good, seeing are somewhat promiscuous attitude in Ocarina of Time. >:(  (I kid).
The water effect in her attack looks brilliant too (but I have a theory that Nintendo became PRO at water animating after their work for Mario Sunshine).

Darunia is the fucking MAN though.  He's a 'minor-cast' favourite (minor= <10min of screen time).  Thrilled as hell to see him....!!  And a shsme they haven't kept up "Goron nipples" as design standards

Big question now: Is a Link to the Past next??  I seriously don't think/hope we're just sticking with the big 3D titles.

Pokemon TCG illustrator also draw Pokemon "fusions"...and they're very good.





ALSO

Tetsuya Nomura (uh huh) designed a Batman outfit for the play arts figures....  Surprising lack of belts, but it looks like Dark Knight Bahamut.

I freakin' LOVED the PSP version of this. I'm unclear as to whether the PSP version was "enhanced" and this is a port of that, or is this PC version an enhanced port of what we got a few years ago on the PSP???

In other words, is there new/additional/improved content beyond what I already experienced with my PSP play-through?

I *think* it's actually the other way around.  The later made PSP version has PC improvements. ;S
I *think* one reason for this delay of the steam version is because they're trying to reincorporate those PSP version perks back into PC.  I'll be back with sources...!

EDIT:
http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/933329-the-legend-of-heroes-trails-in-the-sky/61917488

- Difficulty settings
- New Game+
- Battle voices
- The monster book
- The place names only appear on the map when you visit them
- Retry offset
- Better graphics for the PC version (!!!) (cuz it's PC)

The topic also says the improvements are back in the PC version
