"Ys: The Oath in Felghana will be released on 3/19 for $14.99 on Steam. Ys Origin will be following after, though there isnít a price or release date set for it yet. Ys Originís script will also be based off of the work from Deuce -a favorite of fans when it comes to the translation patches- whose script was also used as a base for Chronicles and Oath in Felghana."

Tetsuya Nomura Talks Kingdom Hearts 3D with Famitsu

"The final KH3D has a world based off Tron Legacy. Originally, the plan was to have Sora go to the original Tron and Riku go to Tron Legacy."

Nomura said that the game can be cleared in 35 hours, but he noted that play time will be extended if you sink your teeth into the character raising component and mini games.

Tetsuya Nomura ready with new Final Fantasy Versus XIII info

"According to Nomura, certain circumstances, which he describes as "totally unrelated," are preventing him from sharing the info. He also said that he's not allowed to talk about the situation, so all he can do is continue engaging in discussions. Discussions with who? He didn't say."

Persona 4: The Golden has a new battle song

"This week's Famitsu reveals that the Vita remake/port will have a new standard battle theme. This was created by Megaten music man Shoji Meguro himself and apparently makes good use of voice.

The original Persona 4 theme is in there too. If you're successful at a back attack, the original music will play."

wtf was the big deal about this game anyhow?  What am I missing?

Monster World IV officially released outside of Japan.

Though, years before the announcement of the collection you could play MWIV translated in English on your PC with an emulator and such. I played it for a while, and it is fun. But like many old titles is one of those games that you want to play for curiosity more than anything else.

Also, The happy console gamer did a review of the entire series a while ago.

Asbel... I'm not sure yet. All I know right now is that I don't like his main outfit. It's like Final Fantasy drank too much and pucked all over him. Actually, that's how I feel about a lot of the designs. Too many (mismatched) colours, too many buckles, too many ribbons... There's just too much going on.

Digression:

JRPGs -- and many other Japanese games, and anime too -- are in serious danger of fatal zazz saturation.

Some zazz is good to have. Think of it like putting sugar in coffee. A sugar cube or two makes a cup of coffee less bitter, while some zazz adds flavor to a game and its characters. But just like you can ruin coffee by pouring in too much sugar, over-zazzing your game makes it irritating instead of bland. Remember back when anthromorphs with 'tude were in vogue? Sonic's 'tude levels were within acceptable parameters, and it's still hard to deny the appeal of his Sega Genesis incarnations. But then you also have Bubsy the Bobcat, who was pumped full of more focus-group tested 'tude than any single piece of intellectual property should ever be asked to contain, and if anyone actually remembers Bubsy, I'm sure their memories are not pleasant.

Here's an example of the progression of zazz saturation: a timeline of SNK fighting game flagship characters.



Terry and Ryo look like two guys out of a martial arts flick. Iori and K' look like they're from an anime. Alba and Luise look like they're from a Japanese fashion magazine. I understand that with so many other products on the market, designers have to make their franchise and its properties stand out, but it's starting to get ridiculous. Other examples include the gulf between the characters and aesthetics of Mobile Suit Gundam and Gundam SEED, Sonic the Hedgehog (1991) and Shadow the Hedgehog (2001), and to cite a stateside example, the differences between the 2D Prince of Persia titles and The Two Thrones. Style over substance.

Last year I remember seeing Sega announcing on their blog that the Monster World Collection was coming to PSN too.

Tokitowa (Time & Eternity) full resolution screens

Yep, still looks pretty.

Is Lightning hard?

COM/RAV/RAV
SAB/SAB/SYN
MED/MED/MED

Done.

If you have Sazh in your party the battle will not last much. And you are not the only one hoping for a hard mode or something similiar, I too feel that the game was too easy, a bit tricky at times but manageable without a guide.

You should have got a PSP or a Vita instead...

Yomi is easily either the hardest enemy in the entire game or the most annoying one. Though Raspatil is pretty hard at times too, takes me a while to kill him to get all the gil he gives.
3689  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: March 13, 2012, 05:37:22 PM
Finally got him.

This ending that I got called "Beneath a Timeless Sky" left me wanting to see more, same thing with "The Future is Hope". Why do you do this to us Trolliyama? ;_;

So, is it true that is just two hours long? I usually dislike knowing how long a game is but I heard accidentally how long Journey was in a podcast and at the moment this seems like a $10 purchase for me.

Maybe I should wait for a discount in the store later. Though, those discount are always for PSN+ members... and I'm not one of them.
