I just finished it too. It was...beautiful. That is seriously the only word I can think of that would describe it.

Don't forget the Super Robot Taisen games that were localized here. OG1 and OG2 for GBA and (deep breath) Super Robot Taisen Original Generation Saga Endless Frontier for DS. The first two are turn based strategy and the third is a jRPG with an interesting battle system and an obsession with double entendres. If that doesn't bother you, it's actually really good.

The only time when I think a reboot is actually a good idea is like what happened with Battlestar Galactica. There were a lot of good ideas in the original show, but the execution left a lot to be desired. I think a reboot should only happen if the original game/movie/tv show had a lot of potential, but something prevented that potential from bearing fruit.

Oh, I guess Xenogears/Xenosaga could be counted as a reboot.

The one RPG remake that I think was unarguably a good idea was Final Fantasy III. Say what you will about the game itself, the remake ensured that it would make its way over here. Granted, they could have updated it a little more, you know, like a save point in the two hour final dungeon, but Final Fantasy III was otherwise totally unavailable in North America and probably very difficult to find legally in Japan.

Sakura Wars was the last big thing in North America.

No. Most likely not.

I'm really bad at learning other languages, but I had a French teacher describe English in this way. "English is a linguistic serial mugger. It runs around attacking other languages and stealing random words and rules without paying any attention to if they fit in with the rest of its collection." The only reason English is learnable at all is that it is at least somewhat phonetic. Imagine if Japanese or Chinese worked the same way. They'd be nigh impossible to learn.

That sounds like the Ar Tonelico Dualithnode crystal thing taken to a rather offputting level.

This game looks vaguely interesting. I don't have an issue with Compile Heart, so I'll keep an eye on this.

In this case, Europe is getting the better selection.

I personally don't like Atelier Rorona, but I'm not really a fan of that type of game anyway. A lot of the games that get decried this generation are actually not that bad. I actually liked Ar Tonelico Qoga, even though the fanservice was really annoying, and I like Agarest. Idea Factory's games don't tend to be great, but they aren't absolutely absymal either. At least not lately.

Tales of Eternia had their weird 'load point' system in the PS1 version too. Save anywhere, but when you load, you start from the last load point you touched.

Didn't Gaijinworks have something to do with that Miami Law DS game?

Why'd he name the company that anyway?

Game Arts is a bunch of different companies. Lunar was translated by Working Designs, Grandia by Sony and then Square Enix, Project Sylpheed Square Enix and so on. Oh, and the Lunar PSP remake was translated by Xseed.
