2566  Media / Single-Player RPGs / The Lunar series/Working Designs. on: November 18, 2006, 10:58:07 PM

Is the Lunar series dead now? Back when Working Designs remade Lunar 1 and 2 for the PS1, that Vic guy from Working Designs hinted at the fact that there might be a new Lunar game for the PS2. Well, since that was 5 or more years ago and the PS2 is in its last days, I take it this isn't happening. Who owns the rights to Lunar? I don't think Working Designs is a company anymore, are they? I think there was a GBA Lunar game that came out not too long agp. Who released that. I always like Working designs. Especially there packagings. I admit, I pre-ordered Lunar two to get the sock puppet and everything! Also, bringing games like Alundra and others out over here was great.


You're one huge WD enthusiast aren't ya.

Victor Ireland is certainly not doing what he likes to do, but hopefully, as he does it, he tries to be a little more true to what the original Japanese creators intended with their titles.

To answer all your Lunar questions:

Probably the most reasonable summary of where the Lunar series stands now. There's hope, but that doesn't change the fact that $money$ is what drives this industry for the most part (a depressing fact for those of us who see art and beauty in games...)

Now, everyone heard of Daler Mhendi's "Tunak Tunak Tun."

Ladies and gentlement, have you seen Prabhu Deva's "Kalluri Vaanil"? If not, you need to.

The bits of research I've done on Indian pop, particularly that from this guy's publisher (Ayngaran), this is apparently pretty typical stuff. Male/female duo doing crazy dances and singing crazy stuff to a hyped up beat.

I...LOVE...this!

I just think there's something special behind it that goes beyond that shallowness of pop culture. Maybe I'm just looking for something that's not there, but to me it's a quick look at how mezmerizing something foreign can be.

Watch it.

ATREEEEEEYUUUU!

"Bastien, PLEASE! Give me a new name!"

I can't, I just can't do it!

mwahahahahha...

Yeah, sell the tickets to the show, and buy yourself the Neverending Story DVD instead. :P

The interviewers at Sega-16 were clearly biased (of course they would be, they're a Sega fansite). But I really enjoyed that interview. Thanks for the link!

2570  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Monster Kingdom announced for the US. on: November 16, 2006, 05:57:58 PM
What I am *really* waiting for is a full soundtrack release. It hasn't happened in Japan: maybe it'll be a uS exclusive with Atlus! :)

Ramza

PS - this will be the first good PSP RPG (besides...like...Lenneth).

Damn, you beat me to it. I wanted to get a pink one too. :P


Great minds think alike.

And Mark, sorry for derailing your whole topic. I too hate the way games get marketed...but in all fairness, games based on "Bratz" and "That's So Raven" deserve terrible marketing. Let's hope they fail.

A lot of people buy into the pink is for girls thing just like blue is for boys.

I mean that's almost as bad as Nintendo releasing a PINK DS. Geez, what the hell were they thinking?


Attention:

last Friday, for my 23rd birthday, my wife purchased a Coral Pink DS Lite. For me.

I <3 it more than you could possibly imagine.

THAT's what they were thinking, oh friendly Masamune. They were thinking of little ol' Ramza.

Ramza

PS - Seriously, the "coral pink" DS is a lot more about style than girly-fun-times IMO.
2573  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Soulblazer. on: November 11, 2006, 12:46:58 PM
Yeah, Quintet was a part of Granstream Saga, a crappy PS1 RPG.

And Quintet did the artwork for the over-400 items in Atelier Iris ~Eternal Mana~. They still exist, but perhaps in name only.

I'd like to see them make a return with a fourth game in the Soul Blazer series, with that sort of similar gameplay. Perhaps a DS title?

Of the SoulBlazer trilogy from Quintet, I vote Terranigma as THE best.

SO good.

I'd hope after the amount of time it's existed that at least some of you have seen this excellent piece of crazy crap.

WE'RE ON A BRIDGE OF HOPE AND WONDER!

2577  The Rest / General Discussions / Pong creator knocks PS3 strategy on: November 09, 2006, 04:06:50 AM
I wonder if Sony will fail this time around with PS3. To me it's doubtful, simply because they have essentially "won" the last two rounds with PS and PS2. Of course, Nintendo "won" with NES and SNES and then hit hard times with N64.

And in the handheld market, what happened before N64? Virtual Boy. And what happened right before PS3? PSP.

Coincidence? ...
you decide.

I think that Wii will do well, as Nintendo has always managed to get by and be innovative. If it's a question of 360 vs PS3, it could be that 360 actually wins. The 3rd party support in Japan is a good sign for Microsoft, as they didn't have that AT ALL last go-around.

2578  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Whats next after DQ8 on: November 08, 2006, 03:35:21 AM
I recommend both Atelier Iris games.

And if you want a challenging title, Baten Kaitos Origins was a recent surprise for me.

2579  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Anyone playing Baten Kaitos Origins? on: November 08, 2006, 03:32:42 AM
Grand Master, to answer your question:

Code:
Mira is there. You just don't visit it because it's apparently cloaked in invisibility. When Sagi and co. reach the ground world (where everyone where's those silly masks), they discover that the fifth of the five islands IS Mira, and that Hassaleh isn't one of the original five. The real question is: how does Hassaleh not exist in the original?

Actually, the team technically does go to Mira. Kind of. Beat the game and find out.

I've never touched the stuff and never will, but this story is so depressing to me. I think it's terrible that the head of the quote "drug ring" is facing ten years in prison. When the hell will our country just get over the fact that lots of people choose to smoke marijuana and make the stuff legal?
