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.

PS - Seriously, the "coral pink" DS is a lot more about style than girly-fun-times IMO.

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!

2602  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.

2603  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.

2604  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?

Scandal in LA!

Seriously, it's no surprise. Dead or Alive Beach Volleyball --- sexual harrassment. Yeah, it's like 2 and 2.

Great story.

Yeah, or just read through most of OUR news updates. The majority of our news updates come direct from Japanese sites, *not* from IGN and Gamespot. Famitsuu and Namae no Nai Heya (not sure if I spelled that right) are two big ones, and Game Watch is a biggie too.

It lives on, but the big question is: will it still be cool?

Guess we'll find out in 2007!

2609  The Rest / General Discussions / Is society becoming more or less overbearing? on: November 01, 2006, 09:22:20 PM
Tough call.

I'd explain it by saying that there are people who are fighting for society to be less overbearing, and they win this or that battle...but in general, most people *are* afraid of controversy so they'd rather play it safe.

For example, if you check my recent Baten Kaitos Origins review (shameless plug), look at the last screenshot with the review: main character on a metallic cross. Yeah, well I beat the game and never saw that in the US version. Why? Because Nintendo published it, and they *edited out* the graphic and instead had the main character hanging on some non-descript golden rectangular block. I kid you not. Who even takes the time to remove stuff like that anymore? I promise you, no ten-year-old kid with conservative parents is going to make it that far in a game like Baten Kaitos cuz 1) it's effing hard and 2) it already has ratings that would stop the parents from buying the game.

So yeah, ppl are making society more overbearing in general, with a few pockets of extremely liberal "do as you please" showing up here and there...which feeds more censorship backlashes.
