Do we really have to discuss Neptunia in this thread? :(

Anyway, Gamestop now has a listing for a Limited Edition....$39.99. I guess that means I should cancel my Amazon pre-order and pre-order the Limited Edition when it becomes available instead...

If it's a soundtrack....tee-heee

$29.99 for a Falcom game tickles my heart though.  I intend to go broke this year.  School excluded.

Hm suppose we'l have 2D titles in 3D?  Like think FF6 where the magitek and spells stand out further from the ground.
Food for thought.

I've been watching Cowboy Bebop.... I think the opening is cooler than the show itself.

Anyone else feel that the 90's animation (the cell shading era) was prone to far worse animation than the current one?  Almost like it was harder to draw on the medium...

I sincerely hope/think Squeenix learns from it's mistakes.  FF8 was case in point when followed with 9.
I don't know - given what we've seen the game looks like something I'd want to play.  FF13 looked great...during the E3 trailer where gameplay turned out a lot different than what we got the impression of.  Besides, the one major fault of 13 look a bit more remedied here, we can travel in a pattern that isn't straight or diagonally across.

The main dude looks and sounds like a pretentious emo fuck - but so was Neku from The World Ends With You - and he developed nicely and to be somewhat likable.

What game is this now?

This time travelling stuff is always confusing, authors should stay away from it.

But it's sooo cooool and deeep. =(
It's a lot of theory anyway.  Back to the Future was wrong on like....80 levels, but it was still fun.

The character designs are pure Ghibli.  I mean, that was the entire point.  And I think they've achieved it admirably.

Again, I still say they're "good" not "great!".  
If PS3 can achieve such realistic humans, how much harder can it be to emulate a cartoon?  I actually think Naruto titles pulled off a more "cartoon-alike" look.
I looked at Ni no Kuni and they seem a bit cardboard too me.

...but, two each their own, I guess. =/

I'm actually amazed at the immediate change of heart thrown to this title. From "hoorays" to "nays".

I'll get it... if reviews really throw the title a bone (and a discount gets tossed into the mix too).  I may be wrong, but I think other titles I want are coming out around the same time too...

I can't condone playing a game that sexualizes little girls in it. I find the recent trend of pedophilia in anime/manga (and video games ?) very disturbing and troubling. When characters that look like they haven't even gone through puberty yet are depicted in sexual poses, I find it amazing that more people don't seem to have any trouble with it.

Not much of an argument, but remember that Japan has one of the lowest crime rate for pedophilia.
Personally, I think the stuff keeps half the 'would be' offenders at bay.

I actually hate being the "mommy" opinion saying a lot of that loli stuff gets ridiculous.  Kodomo no Jikan being the worst offender (but it intends to be that way), then seeing Kyon's sister from Haruhi Suzumiya donning a bunny girl suit.
I can only questions what artists are thinking at some points.
...I wonder if NISA is gonna add a few years' to the girls' age like they did for Atelier Rorona.

DS is DS.

PS3 of course.  It's standard cell shading.  I mean, given the technology can make really good looking CG human beings, the in-game graphics for the PS3 title to make it look like a Ghibli cartoon are an "ok" - but nothing shocking at all.

...more than that, I'm surprised release has been taking so long.  And what was the plan with a DS and PS3 release (I heard the former actually undersold expectations).

Fought demigods that ruled a micromoon city and won

time to dress in ancient armor with feathers

Peculiar how well that sums it up.  You know on imdb when you get the movie synopsis?

Amazing how Squeenix makes a human so impossible to pull off.  Facially, I think the girls (and boys) in these games are the absolute pinnacle of beauty that it's impossible.  I actually wonder, if the earth was searched for the woman who is the CLOSEST looking to Lightning - how much different would she still look (hair too... because...wow..)

Level 5's one of those that's actually active on higher end hardware though.

I hate how Ni no Kuni looks... (Backgrounds? Super.  Character?  Eh)
7483  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky on: January 31, 2011, 12:26:15 AM
While Neptunia's another example it really does not sound any good.

Based on how many elements? HAH.
The only thing I liked from "Let's Plays" on youtube were the "crunch" and "thwack" sound effects when characters attack in battle.  Nothing get's the idea of "doing damage" quite like those SFX. 
That, and the weird "transformation" voice you hear.
...something is awfully wrong when I like soundeffects more than anything else.  HMM....

I got Kirby's epic yarn since it was free sorta (gift card for Christmas).

Meh.  I think I'll take it back, get some money out of it.  For some reason, I LOVE Kirby titles when they stick to doing what he does best - sucking, ironically.  But pinball, yarn, or whatever gimmick or puzzle titles don't do a thing for me.
The game feels like I'm playing in a toy box and my fingers are full of butter (I'm not too crazy about the controls is what I mean - not too responsive, a bit sluggish).
You can't die, but at times I feel like failing to "collect" a gold is even more defeating.

I will never doubt how cool I am with this on youtube...
