Final Fantasy X/X-2 remaster confirmed for Western release.


It apparently has a price point of 40$.

Ouch.  If it's priced at $40, I wonder what the PSV ones wil be.

I'm listening to J-pop.... turned into classical music.  It's actually quite lovely and sometimes hard to imagine it was one all up-beat and pop-y.

I played Vesperia PS3, you're really not missing that much.

I wonder how many of the people whining about it would actually buy it if it came out today...

I agree, the improvements on the PS3 are minimal.  Buut a few things to remember:
(1a) Not everyone has an XBox
(1b) Some have dead Xbox's now that won't play Vesperia360 anymore

(2) We've been pretty teased and strung along like a crush that won't stop flirting with you but doesn't want anything to do with you (like FilthieRich using the VespPS3 logo to his Graces teaser image; apparently additional voicework was on the 360 game and Troy Baker saying it was good to go; and that recent Playstation poll putting VesPS3 in its "RPG" category as an example for "what genres we want to see")

(3) It really hurts because it was almost *disturbingly* obvious that something was missing in Vesp360 (see bright red arrows)

(4) The Vita "efforts" for the DS "remakes" have been really bad.  At their best, they provide good nostalgia in a slightly updated form; and their worst, they look, play, and feel like they've been outsourced titles (which they are).  I think Innocence-R may actually hurt the brand on Western shores, while Hearts-R made a few questionable decisions about what was changed up.

Word around the campfire is thinking the "secret announcement" is about Xillia 2; which might make sense as far as getting voice actors back to reprise their roles (just get it all done while doing voices for Xill1), but may be too soon.

Graces f is going digital

Xillia [re]confirmed for Summer.

Apparently more surprises for a Tales-filled year, but I'm not the speculating type.
Thanks Hideo Baba!.  I love that strange looking man all of a sudden.
(I'd die happy if they said Vesperia PS3 and Destiny PS2...!!!)

Does Meruru have that really Spanish-sounding battle theme?  Because I absolutely love it, Ayesha is currently switching between its own battle theme and that awesome one.

Holy smokes that dragon walking at the end almost gave me the shivers.  Unreal 2D effect they got going

Comparison shots time. I know that anything can be considered an improvement over the original's sprites but using retextured Romancing SaGa sprites is still pretty goddamn lazy. Especially since you resized the viewing field and slimmed down the tiles to leave those massive open areas on the sides of the screen.

Also, way to make Faris look like a complete chick now instead of some kind of person with long pink hair. Now nobody's going to be surprised an hour into the game when Faris's paper thin disguise falls apart.

Maybe Japanese character designs are able to make people question his/her gender, but being raised North American: long hair = girl.  So... =/

I hate how plastic-y the new graphics look.  It's cool that it's like an "HD" version of a 16-bit game, but I don't dig it than say a real take at it (I thought FF4 DS's graphics were great and a better take to putting in the effort for a remake).

Pretty much any time Zelda has a stealth section.

Not even half an hour after starting Spirit Tracks and it had the obligatory stealth section. I put the game down right there and haven't touched it since. And I know it's probably easy, but I don't care. I'm sick of stealth in Zelda. Even when they aren't hard, they can be stupidly annoying.

I don't blame ya.
Spirit Tracks had an annoying maze and OHKO method....and unfortunately the only way Zelda has ever been playable properly.
Skyward Swords Silent Realms were annoying and made worse by their redundancy that you're doing the Hyrule "victory lap" while being persecuted.
Oddly, Ocarina of Time's is probably one of the better, less annoying I guess..

Also, Breath of Fire III had a bunch of shitty dungeons that make a really, really cool game a pain in the ass to go back to.  Dungeons + Puzzle Solving is bullshit.

Japan: You can play as a female hero, but they can't have a boyfriend, so the heroine can be "single" for the male player.

Amurrica:  You can play as a female hero, but they can't have a boyfriend, because a guy is kissing a guy as a girl -- and that's gay.

((for the record, I'm just being a goofball here))

Atelier Ayesha is like Canada.  Everything is spaced really far apart and takes forever to get anywhere.
