1  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Suikoden 1 and 2 finally coming to psn + Suikoden discussion. on: December 19, 2014, 05:38:19 PM
So, being unable to play much Suikoden today due to a recent surgery, I mostly just browsed the internet looking for various things to keep me amused, when I happened across this particular piece of awesomeness: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12ZF-1MzVkw

Back in the mid-90's, if you were an RPG, and your names wasn't 'Arc the Lad II',, you didn't get no fancy anime adaption. However, there was still a chance of getting a manga adaption or, if you were lucky, a drama CD or two. Suikoden must have hit the jackpot, as it received a full-blown radio drama which retells  the story of the first game, with some liberties taken of course.. Of course, most drama CD's aren't all that accessible due to usually staying in Japan, and being in Japanese. Not so with this one. What we have today is not only the Suikoden radio drama translated, but applied to sprites and maps from the actual first Suikoden game, edited to accord to the radio drama. The result is the closet thing you'll get to a Suikoden anime, and for people who've played the game, it's a must-see.

But wait, there's more! Turns out that the same guy responsible for this also gave the Suikoden II Drama CD the same treatment. Neither of these are real substitutes for the games themselves, but again, for those who've played these, these vidoes are just so enjoyable. :D
good find. will watch later.

Urobuchi didn't write Psycho Pass 2 so not surprised it turned out to be a train wreck

IMO don't skip 1 if its on psn. One of the major strengths of Suikoden is the attachment you gain for characters as a few key ones make appearances in the later games.You can skip Suikoden 1 but you are missing out on a lot of lore and other little things that  overall enhances the experience. It is not like 1 takes a long time to beat as you can 100% it in less than 15 hrs.

Berserk still got nothing on the Evangelion manga.

At this point, they may as well say it's been canceled.

WTF?! It FINALLY came out 2 weeks ago apparently
http://www.kadokawa.co.jp/comic/bk_detail.php?pcd=321404000095

It just took 2 entire years to make one volume. Which sadly isn't the longest it took to release a volume.
Volume 11 - June 19, 2007
Volume 12 - April 3, 2010
With the pace Miura is going I would not be surprised in the least if he beats that Evangelion  gap between  volume 11  and 12 in the future. He has gone on an erratic release schedule, even for something as slow as berserk.

Gorillaz - Feel Good Inc
Stylish and fits the actual song well. I like most Gorillaz  videos in general.

You're slipping Annubis, I don't want to be the new guy to post these every season.

Anyways, a bunch of season 2s have already pertained to my interests, let alone some of the less crappy new stuffs.

I'm waiting for the chart that has Kancolle.
I just can't find it ;)
It is not a fall anime anymore. it was moved to winter season at the earliest.

I think I've 'won' the game now.  I have every single kanmusu.

Event: Mutsu, Iku, Tanikaze, Urakaze, Ise, Kumano, Zuihou, Abukuma, Hamakaze, Amatsukaze
Construction: Maruyu, Nagato Akitsumaru

Most of my good drops came from AL. MI trolled me hard as far as drops
an army of Souryuu and Kaga and other crap i did not want.

I spent the last 4 days xp grinding the hell out of the E5 sub node. MI trolled me so much dropwise that i figured i'd get the most of the remainder of the event farming the xp goldmine rather then ending up with more Souryuu and Kaga fodder.

I will Not miss the new poke balls, those can rot in the 9th circle.

The soundtrack review section. Discovered many a gem I would no otherwise known existed.

hitler parady of the Kancolle summer event. So funny, so true, have not laughed so much in a good while. Pure comedic gold.

Kancolle went above and beyond  with the summer tracks for the summer event. Never got tierd of any of them even as I was constantly getting my skull smashed in by rng.

the bosses
operation AL boss
operation MI bosses
the stages
operation AL
operation MI
the MI boss sounds like mix of Shadow Hearts, Ar Tonelico and Yuki Kajiura
