Either I'm terrible at my job or I should figure out some way to make money from this. Like, is there any game you want? I can write an article about how it's not gonna happen and then it's totally gonna happen.

'Nintendo Will Never Make Another "Open World" Mario Game'

-or-

'Metroid Federation Force "Totally Not a Joke," says Iwata"

Oh, I absolutely hope I end up eating crow. It would be really nice to see another fantastic JRPG with Nintendo's name attached to some degree. I'm just not going to put my chips on hopeful.

Am I the only one that like it? Sure I would never had guessed when they decided to combine Fire Emblem with SMT they would go with something like this but I welcome the change.
It's only a spin off and one we'll hardly see a sequel soon, so I'll just enjoy it.

Personally I welcome this shift in tone, this lighthearted and colorful theme seems like something I will enjoy. If we think about it, it seems like the opposite of Catherine which I liked a lot.



I honestly would probably take a closer look if they didn't advertise it as combining two elements that have nothing to do with this final product. Like, okay.. there might be some FE characters, but why? Why not just make up some original characters or use SMT demons/personas?

Pushing Daisies... :(

Holy shit, I had forgotten that show existed.

Now I'm sad.

Which reminds me of another one: Kings.

Excellent premise (What if feudalism were still a thing and monarchs were basically CEO's that also made laws and declared wars?), talented cast, and NBC decided to throw it into a Saturday 10pm time slot where it was doomed to fail from the start.

Better Off Ted.

Think: Aperture Science is real, but instead of developing weapons they make consumer goods. It was quite hilarious and didn't really get past it's second season.

Whoo! Multi-timeline jumping! I love that concept! I am very glad that they are wrapping the series up properly. I just pray that they go back to 2d character models as I found the 3d ones in VLR to be ugly. >.>

*Clover says something worrisome while smiling like a sociopath*

Honestly, that's what bugs me the most. I've only just started, but even if they couldn't DO facial expressions, why have Clover default to smiling like an idiot in a story about being in an incredibly dangerous situation?

And there it is; taken from the Aksys panel:


ZERO ESCAPE LIIIIIIVES.

2015 has been a somewhat tame year for releases, but a hell of a year for annoucements.

Well, I know what I'm playing the rest of the summer (I stopped playing VLR after learning it ends on a major cliffhanger and there were no plans to release the third game.)

That image makes it look like it says 2036, which would have been a massive middle finger to fans (Oh, you'll get it... when you're all too old to remember what video games are HAHAHA)

As I posted, for some reason Square decided it would be a good idea to make sure you can't actually level up any new characters by taking away random skirmishes. Otherwise what I played of it wasn't any worse than FFTA.

CC2's teasing a .hack project of some sort.

Owie. My feelings. You hurted them.

Of course you disagree. Zelda fans are a lost cause anyway. ~_~

This is why I don't understand your "If people interpret what I say as offensive, that's their problem" attitude when you go around saying things like that. Just outright insulting people or groups of people.

--------------------

For what it's worth, Dice, I think you have some very strong points and I certainly wouldn't mind a female Link or a choice to be a female Link. The whole "Link is canonically a guy" thing is bogus when Link isn't even a canonical character, "The Hero" is the canonical character and there is NOTHING in the lore that would stop The Hero from being a girl.

THAT being said, I also think the question being asked in the interview was clearly tossed out in hopes of a good headline.
12  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: July 01, 2015, 08:40:33 PM
I remember abandoning FFTA2 after getting frustrated with the whole:

"OH!? What's that? You want to level up a NEW character!? HAHAhahaHAHAAHHAHAhaHAHAHAhaHaHAHAhAhhaHAHAHAHAA!!!! Sorry, no."
13  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The unofficial "recommend me a game" thread. on: July 01, 2015, 05:06:05 PM
I've not played Blue Dragon, but I've heard the combat system is fairly simple so if that's true, it would fulfill your desire for something not too complex. Star Ocean 4 is paced way too slow to be an enjoyable distraction from the heat.
14  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: June 30, 2015, 08:56:43 PM
I'm so glad I started playing Monster Monpiece again. It's really helping keep me distracted from the temptation to go ahead and buy Hyperdimension Neptunia Re:Birth 3. I'm still making progress, albeit very slow progress. I don't have the right cards at the moment to build a deck that fairly balances Mana regeneration and powerful attacks. So mostly I rely on luck of the draw to get steady combos going.

The battle system really is quite... I don't want to say "deep," because it's actually quite simple, but it's very versatile, allowing for switching up strategies mid-battle and still coming out on top. As long as...


...you play your cards right.

YEEEAA--I'll let myself out.
15  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Star Ocean 5 on: June 30, 2015, 02:34:03 PM
I'm not too shocked. If there's one thing Tri Ace loves doing, it's packing a ton of extra content into their games at launch.
