2551  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Any word on Dragon Shadow Spell being picked up for the US? on: April 05, 2007, 03:29:49 AM
Quote from: "SabreWulf11887"
I hope this game makes it over here. But there's probably a 5% chance of that happening, though.


When Atlus released the Summon Night GBA games in the US, I figured that was their "testing the waters" to see if the Summon Night series would be viable in the US. Considering DSS is another Flight-Plan game, and very similar, perhaps Atlus will be interested....?

I love that they refused to put the "usuals" in their list. Suikoden Phalanx and Megaman...fer real dog!

Irritating Stick ftw.

I didn't keep up on recent tri-Ace titles, but I have an extreme love for The Second Story. That said, I like any news on any tri-Ace games. :)

I think they can do it, especially with the muscle of S-E behind them. Let's just see if they do hold out with their promise this time around...

2554  The Rest / General Discussions / Save RPGFan Radio! on: March 31, 2007, 11:08:34 PM
lolz. Not that I have high hopes for RPGFan Radio's survival, but if someone WANTED to do a car wash for the most absurd reason in the world, saving an internet radio station that plays videogame music would probably top the list...

I do not look good in a bikini tho. Any takers? :P

yeah for real, every game that's had DS book-style allows for screen-switching if you're left-handed.

(I'm left-handed, and I notice these things)

I'm still unclear as to which game this follows. Is it a sequel to FFT or  FFTA? In any case, it does look nice. Of particular note is the giant cockatrice.


How does "A2" make this in any way unclear to you?

It's a sequel to Tactics ADVANCE.

sigh...

The thing that finished me off was a dude praying to God, and I got "Talk To the Hand"-ed...God's fist-pounding took me out.

Nice.

2558  Media / Single-Player RPGs / XBLA Castlevania: SotN is out and rocks! on: March 25, 2007, 05:09:55 AM
Eusis is correct. the Castlevania "collections" on PSP that will include Rondo of Blood and SotN will be far cooler...particularly for Rondo of Blood. :P

But if you have a 360, this is probably one of the better downloads you can get from XBLA.

Quote from: "Dice"
maybe I'm sick of JRPG plots with some high school student saving the world or aliens senselessly killing everything.  In that case, I tire of focusing on the plots, they're becomes silly, and repetitive, and just focus for what sets games apart.


When talking about a game's story, there are different things to focus on. Yeah..the "overall" plot (typically saving the world, or someone near and dear to you) may be repetitive. It's more about the journey TOWARDS this goal. If *these* story elements are either completely irrelevant or completely bland, or if it's clear that it was borrowing from other recent story techniques in the VG world, then that's bad.

Taking into account character development, dialogue in general, and that sort of thing, may help you see the freshness in what is an otherwise drab game (at least concerning plot).

He might be excited enough to try and include nongaming family members and friends, forgetting they won't be able to measure the "good" story against any other games. It's like presenting your own toddler to guests. You might clap and cheer over little Johnny's ability to stack blocks, but the guests, who have seen more impressive things from dogs, will just smile and nod politely.


This is a good metaphor. And, as a gamer and father, I am generally disappointed (even disgusted) by the lack of enthusiasm by my associates who only "smile and nod" over something that ought to be considered exciting.

Cultural elitism can suck dese.

Interesting article, but I wouldn't call Locke an "emo thief."

Edit: Also, they talk about visual novels (such as Hotel Dusk) as if they're some sort of new phenomenon. ...shows how one-sided the coverage is. I understand they're writing for an English audience, but a one-sentence "visual novels have been around for decades in Japan" would have meant a lot to the discerning reader.
2561  Media / Single-Player RPGs / A New FF game to be announced...? on: March 23, 2007, 10:21:12 PM
Heraesis XIII being the next MMO makes a good bit of sense.

But I'd prefer the VII remake.

I'm surprised by the FF hatred on this board. I mean...that's fine that you think Nomura and Kitase have ruined the series, but that in no way changes the fact that S-E is still making quality games.

When I posted this thread I was hoping for people to make good, creative guesses. All I see is whining for new IPs and *overheard* complaints about the usual stuff.

Blaaah

He is distinctly missing from the #1 slot.


Well said.
2563  Media / Single-Player RPGs / A New FF game to be announced...? on: March 23, 2007, 01:32:19 AM
uhh Eusis? That news story only listed the games they're presenting related to FF. The Square Enix Party will include many of other non-FF titles, and will probably introduce some new non-FF stuff too.

So, back on topic, anyone have speculation on what this new FF title will be?

Edit: Where'd you read that?

My money's on the FFVII PS3 remake. It has GOT to happen.

agreed with Eusis. XIII is a whole different ball of wax from XII. You may still wanna give it a shot.
