Wait, are you saying people think Dragon Quest VII's bad? It's hard, and the pacing is..weird to say the least, but I thought it had a pretty positive reaction.

Admittedly, the level curve is ridiculously steep at the start.

Yeah, you're right. The average JRPG series is more an anthology than anything.

Maybe they'll mean it will flow a bit better? Persona 3 had a rather awkward mesh of the social links and the main plot and while Persona 4 did it a bit better, it was still kind of weird.

Isn't the whole thing with the novel bullshit? I've never seen the novel translated and what it has been said of it is just sounds (to me) like a bunch of people overreacting because of some poor translation of a few pages.

Of course I could be wrong and the novel is as dumb as it has been mentioned. But still, I rather read the entire novel before freaking out.

The audio drama is sort of annoying to me since I don't particularly like the way Nojima writes his stories. It sucks that he's the script writer for XV... I'm crossing my fingers for him to do a good job since the idea behind the scenario in XV has potential in itself, but at this point I don't expect much of anything from him.

Most of the information is coming from the Japanese side of things. Like, book reviews and such.

That article is really interesting. I thought it was kind of funny how his example of something to make people sad was so cliche, until he started adding details and I was like "Holy crap, that's a scene from Nier!"

And he thinks his games don't cause emotional reactions? Okay, Drakengard 1 maybe...the characters are so twisted and awful, and the gameplay is so incredibly clunky that it's really hard to get sucked in, but Nier had an amazing (and dark) story with many moments that impacted me. And the music really helped.

I just looked this up on Youtube, and I found this song:

It's gorgeous!

Sorry, wrong thread.

Ooh, you're going to have some trouble with that. The game is hard enough with level grinding.

It's like the armor's two sizes too small!

You know what's really annoying about the Mana series? The later games could have been much better, if they had just put a bit more effort into them. Dawn of Mana needed to get the camera and level-up system fixed, Heroes needed to deal with the path-finding issue and Children...admittedly that one was just kind of mediocre. It wasn't bad though. Fun for what it was.

Heroes had a pretty good plot, and it set up SD3 pretty well, but the gameplay was clearly a tech-demo for FFXII: Revenant Wings, and Dawn had some good ideas but awful execution. Again, Children of Mana seemed to be exactly what they were aiming for, they just didn't aim very high.

Square Enix just kept phoning them in.

I don't think the reviewer was saying it was bad because the character is white, it's bad because the main character looks exactly like the generic space marine archetype. If the guy was black, that would at least be a departure from the incredibly generic character design.

The first one is Final Fantasy Adventure or Sword of Mana for the remake.

Mystic Quest is something else.

The one issue I had with NAGI's art was the occasional side character with an outfit that was just WTF. Like Tenba President Ayano from AT1. That outfit just looked extremely uncomfortable and seconds away from a bizarre and painful malfunction.

See below.

I actually pulled my stake because of the uncertainty and all that. I can just buy it if it gets funded.

I funded the Wakfu animated series one instead. :-)

And in Ar Tonelico 3 the guys did have to strip too for their special attacks. Not much attention was drawn to it admittedly, but it did happen.
