The first two are very clearly connected while the third sets up the multiverse thing.

The thing is, Zone of the Enders was moving in that direction from the start. The first one was pure science fiction where Metatron is just a powersource. The second one moved towards fantasy with all that stuff that pops up about the Metatron. It's not really that strange.

Especially since traditionally Metatron refers to the angel that serves as the voice of God. I always thought it was weird that they named it that and didn't do anything with it.

Oh yes, definitely for the better. It's actually one of the advertised selling points.

That is an odd console combination though.

Least it's better than Tactics Ogre where episodes VI and VII exist and then no other numbered entries were made. Although, the Dept. Heaven series works much better with the messed up timeline than most because each game details a different part of a vast universe at a different time.

Riviera is on the PSN if that helps.

I think one of the best counterpoints to that is actually Ar Tonelico Qoga. The execution was awful, but when you actually look at the plot and setting, there is something there that could have become a bona-fide classic of gaming. In fact, a lot of jRPGs run into that problem. Final Fantasy XIII's setting was really interesting, but the game wasn't designed in a way to utilize it properly. The biggest western games don't even start from an interesting concept. The execution might be amazing, but I don't think anyone could hold Skyrim up as an example of an amazing and fresh concept.

I think another good example of the counterpoint to this is the anime series Vision of Escaflowne. Escaflowne is a mishmash of cliches and there are no individual elements that are even remotely unique. Even the mech in a fantasy world thing had been done by Magic Knight Rayearth earlier. However, they took all those cliches and utilized them so well, that the western anime fandom holds it up as a masterpiece. I don't know how popular it is in Japan.

As far as I know, Riviera is the one at the end of the timeline. Riviera's final villain is the total villain of the series as a whole.

I know this isn't really big news, but some of the big companies, especially Capcom, have been loosing pretty much all of their big name talent. Square Enix has been experiencing it for a while, and I'm kind of curious as to why. The Platinum Games guys, I can understand, but then you get Kenji Inafune who associated himself with Hyperdimension Neptunia of all things.
264  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tetsuya Nomura on Versus XIII and Next Kingdom Hearts: "Keep waiting... please?" on: May 08, 2012, 09:05:56 PM
With Kingdom Hearts though, there were actually games released in the series in between. And they didn't announce Kingdom Hearts 3 or whatever way before they even started it.
265  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Next Vanillaware Title to be Grand Knight History on: May 02, 2012, 11:19:29 AM
If Rising Star did the programming stuff, couldn't XSeed still release it?
266  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon's Crown (Vanillaware RPG, Spring 2012 all regions) announced for PS3/Vita on: April 19, 2012, 11:22:41 PM
Well, this guarantees a better translation than Muramasa at least.
267  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Crimson Shroud - Matsuno's Newest Game on: April 19, 2012, 11:22:18 PM
It's just creepy.
268  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Class of Heroes 2 Kickstarter by MonkeyPaw Games and Gaijin Works on: April 16, 2012, 05:06:53 PM
Yeah. Working Designs was...questionable when it came to lighthearted non-essential elements, but they did leave serious elements alone, and they mostly left the plots alone.
269  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Getting psyched for Gungnir on: April 12, 2012, 10:38:00 AM
Eh, it's better than the wonky numbering of the Ogre Battle games. There's four of them, and only two of them are numbered, as VII and VI. Sting seems to be at least planning to fill the numbers out.
270  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Getting psyched for Gungnir on: April 11, 2012, 06:33:17 PM
I'm looking forward to this too. It's Episode IX in the Department Heaven series, right?
I was a little iffy for a while because I couldn't figure out Yggdra Union, but I played it again recently, and it just clicked. Eh, the stories are always really interesting in Sting games.
