Yeah. That's where I got stuck too. I'd ALWAYS run out of time. What *do* you do?

oh good it's back up! ^^

Eusis, isn't it also true that the GI JOvErdubs were stopped is because they covered all 25 PSAs ever created?

They survived Scientology's legal threats. Now let's see if they can survive Sega.

I for one have always been a major YTMND fan. Let's see how they do.

Riesz/Lise (the amazon spear chick) is my all-time favorite character. I've beaten SD3 three times, and each time I had her in my party so I could take her to a different class by the end. She's simply excellent.

(funny, though I used her 3x, I never made her my main character. For main characters I did Duran, Carly, and...I forget...Kevin? Whichever got me the 3rd last dungeon).

I posted months ago that FFV Advance also had the "attack its weakpoint for massive damage" quote in it.

And I think Raze's spoiler-text about sums it up. FFV isn't a very deep or serious game for starters, and if they wanna have a more light-hearted translation on a handheld port, I'm all for it.

The last line about sums it up. "God I'm a douchebag."

I don't trust sources that use contractions when they mean to use possessive pronouns.

From it's core, the powerful Cell processor,with it's poor production yields, has added pitfalls to it's on rollout that is compounded by the difficulty in mass producing the Blu Ray in the Playstation 3.


And who can forget using a verb as a noun?

In all seriousness, if PS3 bites the bullet for Blu-Ray, all I have to say is "good." I never saw the good in it.

2544  Media / The Soundroom / Song on FFV OST, "Harvest", DRIVING ME CRAZY on: January 06, 2007, 04:24:57 PM
I know what you're talking about. It's actually not quite as similar to the songs in your head as you'd think: it's just that synth and the melody. Trust me. ^^

But yeah, isn't FFV Advance a sweet trip? I loved going through it.

Also Superflat, FFV Advance is little more than a port. We get some new artwork, the bonus dungeon and jobs...yeah. But it's *BASICALLY* still FFV. It's hardly a new game.

FFIII on the other hand...well, it was COMPLETELY re-worked from the ground up. That fact alone probably gives it more weight than FFV.

That, and, it'd look a little nuts to give a "best handheld" award to a GBA game instead of a DS game. I myself voted for LostMagic, and if I hadn't voted for that, it probably would have been Magical Starsign (put the word "Magic" in a title and I'm sold!).

I think I may be in agreement with Eusis, however, that in our "genre" awards we may want to put in a "traditional turn-based RPG" category, since the console/PC/overall winners can hail from ANY of the genres. That's just good sense. (Though, in our case, it would've just been a way for FFXII to win three times over).

2546  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Ar Tonelico out soon on: January 06, 2007, 03:19:50 AM
wow. Talk about thread resurrection.

And your question makes NO sense to me. None whatsoever.

If you want the artbook/soundtrack, you'll probably need to *PREORDER* it, likely from NIS America themselves.

2547  Media / Single-Player RPGs / New Etrain Odyssey trailer on: January 06, 2007, 03:18:17 AM
ah yes, from "Project Yggdrasil." This is the game that was tentatively entitled "Yggdrasil Labyrinth" ... which would have been a headache since the games "Yggdra Union" and "Deep Labyrinth" have also been recently released. Glad they gave it the name "Etrian Odyssey."

The gameplay doesn't look that great (as stated, it's Wizardry-like FPoV dungeon crawling), but the character design, story, and !YUZO KOSHIRO! music will probably win me over.

2548  The Rest / General Discussions / NES seiken densetsu, ff7 with 3 characters, saturn shenmue on: January 05, 2007, 01:29:35 AM
the info about the origin of the Seiken Densetsu series is very interesting. It's funny that "Seiken Densetsu" is now known in the US and Japanese as the "Mana" series, though "Seiken Densetsu" translates to "Holy Sword (Excalibur) Legend" -- word up.

Eusis,

Although "complex" and "convoluted" essentially mean the same thing, most people use the word "convoluted" as though it were a bad thing: the word has a negative connotation, much like "stagnant" and "permanent" mean about the same thing, but one has a stronger negative emphasis.

Ramza

PS - Yeah...I don't understand the whole "Zelda is an RPG" thing, but I know that since the beginning of time people told me it was one, so I went with it.

It's definitely not March. They've had the game *completed* in English since mid-December, and they've been giving out those demos for a month now. Jan 30 would be correct.

And yes, the game is going to Pwn your world.
