It's a fullblown remake. They're doing it from the ground up.

I got into gaming with the GBA and the Gamecube, so I don't really have a nostalgia filter over those older games, so I won't hold it against you.

It'd be nice if it were similar to white knight chronicles, where you create a character for use online and in the main story, but he/she doesn't impact the story directly. Granted WKC isn't the best example of a stellar single player experience, but it gets my point across.

I'd be okay with that if your character doesn't stand around like a schlub the whole time with only two characters acknowledging your presence. I got the impression the avatar was just tagging along and wouldn't take a hint.

I picked up my copy, navigating my way around the "real men don't play cartoony games" guy who's been the bane of my existence for several months now, but I have to wait until the 2nd of February to play it because a friend of mine demanded that I wait till she visits to start it. I did install it and redeemed the code for the DLC familiar I got with the pre-order (Flutterby) and watched the opening video you get if you leave the title screen long enough. I think they dubbed the song. But from my brief impression, it is very pretty.

That's...extremely repetitive.

I think a good way to describe my response (I don't like the new one very much) is that it is a very good Ninja Theory game, but it's not a very good DMC game. You end up with this awkward position where coming up with a score is rather difficult.

Although, the one thing that I will say I think is just bad is the writing. Excessive swearing is not good dialogue. If you must use excessive swearing, balance it out with truly witty dialogue. If a character constantly swears and never proves that they can say anything interesting on their own merits, they are not well written. It is incredibly obvious that this is Ninja Theory's first game where they didn't bring in an outside writer to work on it. Heavenly Sword had Rhianna Pratchett and Enslaved had Alex Garland. This just has Tameem and, while his worldbuilding is interesting, his characters really aren't written well. The game also gives really mixed signals about who is supposed to be sympathetic and not in a good way, the pacing is extremely inconsistent and the only character I liked is one of the villains.

The combat is fine and the game looks okay, if aesthetically somewhat ugly, but it's just the writing that ruined it for me.

Ogre Battle.

It's on the Virtual Console on the Wii.

There's Suikoden I, II, III (sort of) and V.

The baffling thing, at least for me, is that this series is perfect for a port or remake or something substantial using the older games. I remember there was a mini-flareup when Square Enix accidentally mixed screenshots from SD3 with the initial announcement of Heroes of Mana.

Tri-Ace has never been good at plot or characters. When the story's good, they make it a pain to see the whole thing. Anyway, I actually enjoyed SO4 as well, but it was a combination of playing an excellent battle system and watching a funny-bad anime. I didn't like SO3 much because of the ridiculous plot twist, a big chunk of the plot was utterly meaningless and the characters tended towards being massively underdefined. The MP health thing was a huge pain as well.

I have to say that it's nice to see an RPG with a proper world map again.

I know that Kaneko designed the Devil Trigger forms for DMC 3. I would love to see that happen with this. It would stick out so much.
224  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGz you want HD'd/Remade on: November 30, 2012, 05:44:59 PM
The battle system was way too dependent on luck.
225  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGz you want HD'd/Remade on: November 30, 2012, 04:58:45 PM
At least it's not as infuriating as the BBC with classic Doctor Who where they intentionally destroyed a lot of the tapes.

My vote for a remake? Baten Kaitos. The backgrounds are amazing, but oh my goodness do the character models look awful, and the voice acting wasn't great either. Also, rebalancing the battle system would only help.
