> FURSONA!!!  Cosmos is a great name and great use of 'no-reason' mascot, but I might be bias (please keep in touch if you need/want any other graphics I'm happy to do them for this)

> I love the mileage you're getting with Imogen Heap... even though that's not a good thing (since it's your 'death tune', but makes sing every time xD )

> For a guy who says JRPGs are easy you're sure losing a lot of characters !!! xP

> I definitely think "I Just Died in Your Arms Tonight" should be up there.

> Great use of cuts in general. x)

> Your "luck" with character level ups is unreal.  I'm happy Ike got at least one good one in

Making my way through Stein;s Gate...man what a game.

Well written, and really hits you in the feels. Awesome how everything has a consequence and a price to pay. Definitely enjoying this VN!

Really considering getting on the game or the anime at some point with all the rave reviews everywhere....

Watchdogs - Made decent progress. I'm a few missions into Act III at this point. Since I did all of the exploring and stuff early on in the game, I'm * Bought Resonance of Fate for $5 on the weekend PSN sale. I've been wanting to play it. I've got so many damn games I've bought and never touched.... Sad.


Good choice.

...and I still have Danganronpa, Virtue's Last Reward, and Paper Mario to play.  Hopefully I can knock those out and put some time into Diablo before I run out of July. 

Post lots in here about those when you get around to them please.  :D

A cool post about random 3D simulation.... some of them are so life-like it's creepy.  Other times it's just satisfying (especially if you grew up in the 90s-00s where that stuff barely looked so good).

I remember loving Oswald for that.  You barely had to level him, you just use his super-evil-saiyan mode, use some Psypher boost skills, one that resists fire/freeze damage and you'd basically be in a race for who does more damage (and with the above tactic, Oswald would always win).

Shit, I'm starting to get some faint memories of Cornelius now and deflecting stuff.....yup.

Meanwhile the new skill tree system looks pretty and hopefully expands and fixes the problems.  I hated going to that Pooka Cafe to level up, hopefully this can offset that a bit.

Slowdown aside, I just hope this redo fixes the balance issues in Cornelius's final quest. 
What was that?

I do have a somewhat fond memory of dreading each character switch but liking each new character more and more.  Mercedes being weird as hell to use but turning out to be my favourite....or kinda broken.

Whatever they do next I look forward to it, they've earned a good reputation with even their small library (Odin Sphere probably being the weakest of the bunch from a gameplay standpoint, but it looks like they're setting out to change that).

^I actually enjoyed Odin Sphere more than I enjoyed Dragon's Crown

Plot-wise (and obviously character-wise) I agree.  But I think it's hard to disagree that there were some flaws in Odin Sphere in how it basically functioned and how repetitive it could be.  That said, though, the news of a HD 'revision' has me eager as hell to play it again. :D

Someone should also mention the other Vanillaware game announced yesterday.

Like Mickey said there's really nothing to say yet, unforutnately.  The tease looks cool I guess, looks like they finally dipping their toes in sci-fi.

Grim Grimoire 2!

The game that nobody everybody is asking for!





Code:
EDIT: ...actually. shit, now I want to replay Grim Grimoire.

Underrated little gem.  I loved playing that game, being in awe of the graphics (and who doesn't love extra large character portraits/animations?) and I went a little crazy by the end trying to work fast enough to beat levels.

Whatever they do next I look forward to it, they've earned a good reputation with even their small library (Odin Sphere probably being the weakest of the bunch from a gameplay standpoint, but it looks like they're setting out to change that).

What's funny too is that I agreed with you Yggdrasil.  Street Fighter is the bigger series and 'relevancy' doesn't matter here since it's a "general" topic... so Aeolus' phrasing was peculiar.  But this is like the EPITOME of "much ado about nothing" to drag out for like 10 posts (between all of us), the difference is that you have tendency to go out of the way to discourage friendly discussion and be continuously moody.  I'm going to say to you what I always do: Just try to be more friendly, less of stickler, and we can all have way better conversations because you are a gamer and that's what we all love too. 

This is the biggest amount of nothing happening on here today and I think we could all distance ourselves from this and talk videogames.... because I (and we, I'm assuming) love videogames. :D

So back on track here's a fun interview with localization peep over at Atlus about Persona:

No,no. This was at least in January last time I edited it. I think Dice was just wondering if this was a response in regards to this thread - trying to increase traffic for regular forum users. Which the answer would be no, I don't think so since I think that link was there before this thread was created.

Maybe it's just the way I see things but maybe these instances of forum users checking the front page often is just a symptom of our community already being on the forefront of news as it is - often times I've seen a user create a thread the second news comes out - a response too fast for any editor here to publish a well written and more importantly a properly fact checked news post.

Irregardless I know for a fact we are many people's source of the latest rpg news - but perhaps not fast enough compared some of the more solely news focused sites that our rpg enthusiast forum users might be checking.

It's a little faster for me on the forum to "OMFG LOOK AT THIS EARTHBOUND 6 WAS ANOUNCED!!!!!!! WWW.YOUTUBE/LINK *HAPPY GIF*" than the write a nicely written news article ...so yeah....  Regardles I love reading the news stories since they tend to have better details...and are written significantly better to the point I feel ashamed.

Holy shit.  Yeah the slowdown was an issue (IIRC Muramasa on the Vita fixed that up, no?), but the new Odin Sphere is a PROPER enhancement if I've ever seen one.  Looks like they took its flaws of the game pretty seriously...  I'll definitely be throwing money for this one.

Slowdown is one issue but the biggest flaw of the game was that enemies completely ignored being hit.
I mean, why would you make a side-scrolling 'beat'em up' where enemies don't stagger?
It's just a terrible design decision.

Honestly I don't remember that.  I rememebr getting super frustrated fighting the titty-skeleton-demon-woman because everything went 1 fps.

I do remember Oswald (the only member of the OS cast now without a figure, but more on that in a second) had an attack that left him open to getting hit that really pissed me off.  Still, this looks like a proper re-do for the game, new elements, enemies, and assets on top of re-working a few systems (obviously I can't say combat for sure, but at least their mixing-alchemy system is getting a change-up).

Speaking of figures, holy shit I need that Velvet/Cornelius one.

For a series with so many 'staple characters' I always love seeing what's added to Street Fighter or any other big fighting game series.

So here's Necali: A Super Saiyan Blanka x Akuma x Wolverine.... But I still think it's pretty damn cool.

He looks more like an SSJ3 Akuma than anything else (probably effectively is too).


And in more relevant gaming news: http://gematsu.com/2015/07/odin-sphere-leifdrasir-announced-ps4-ps3-ps-vita

You have one job guys, fix the bloody slowdown.


Also: http://gematsu.com/2015/07/atlus-vanillaware-tease-new-project-details-coming-september

A new challenger approaches... Possibly an Odin's Sphere sequel or possibly something entirely new. Looking at it again, this can't be anything but a entirely new game. Ignore my previous speculation.

Is the latest "newsbox update" because of this thread?
(I should add linking prized RPGFan contributor Starmongoose's Let's Play page part of the link!)

You'd...have to sew like 8 body pillows together. xD

Sewing?
It's for sale for 100,000 yen (~800$)

Also:


Oh sorry I thought it was just the pillow cover, not the fluffy-pillow itself too.
 And good pic. x)
