I mean, not really. Marketing tactics are developed by studying trends that appear in multiple focus groups. Still, game companies aren't going to waste money doing a separate focus group for every game they make.

Not so much focus groups as much as simple marketing tactics.

I'd still buy it if it came state-side.

I will say that I unfortunately can't totally hate her since she does have decent taste in headware. Minus the over-accessorizing, of course.

Anyways, Gematsu posted some higher quality screenies here. One thing I've noticed now is that Checkers has wings and a tail.

Well, clothing it seems, not her having wings and tail.
That and pompoms on her wrists.



She also has ears on her hat (with piercings and everything lol).

If these two are any indication, SOV has managed to recapture the essence of SOIV's creepy Japanese fetish waifu brigade (versus SOIII's less fetish-ish female cast (then again, I'm kinda running on a blank as to what major creepy waifu cliches are left given just how many Miki and Checkers manage to encompass on their own, probably a loli and a maid), way to go team that wanted to revisit SOIII).

Yeah I think green witch represents everything I hate about Japanese character design... On the other hand, other tri-Ace titles fare much better, but so far this is a bit of a swing and a miss for SO5.

She's a far better example of "over-designing" than any of the spiky-armor dudes with oversized shoulder pads from Western developers.

Okay, the front page update about the upcoming Witch and the Hundred Knight announcement has me excited! But I don't think any regulars here need me to tell them that!
! <<<<< !

Probably the only one, too. Don't care, I'm ecstatic for more Metallia!

And the big reveal at the end of the countdown is...

ANOTHER COUNTDOWN!!
Christ, this industry sometimes...

Yes, this series is for people like me who is sitting here curious how the meeting between Kite and Haseo is going to go, considering Haseo's main enemy was Kite's phantom.

I do think FF3 is underrated, but only in the sense that I'd rate it somewhere in the lower middle than dead last.
24  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Star Ocean 5 on: April 20, 2015, 08:19:53 AM
Oh God, what have you done!? Not only does it appear she shouldn't be in charge of her own wardrobe, but her own makeup either.

Anyone else notice that all these screenshots seem to be from a very small portion of the game? Something tells me all they're really working on right now is having a playable demo ready for E3 or TGS. Some kind of "save the town" mission that ends with the quartet on a spaceship, hence that "Where are we!?" group shot.

While I do like Dice's better, I still can't help but wonder if that's not what she'd looks like with a different expression anyway. I honestly think the nose especially is a simple matter of Tri-ace going for softer lines combined with poor scan-of-a-scan quality.

Dear Networks:

In this day and age it should be possible to come in late to your show and catch up. If there are certain episodes of your show that there is never any way of viewing until midway through the following season, you have done something wrong. I don't want to put the effort in of watching your show if I'm always going to be a season behind because I discovered it later on in it's life.

I'm not asking for free handouts, just options.

Getting the true ending:

Hint #1:
Code:
You'll need the Chrono Cross

Hint #2:
Code:
Pay attention to everything in Terra Tower. There is a theme/pattern that shows up all over the place

Hint #3:
Code:
That's about it. As long as you follow hint #1, the importance of Hint #2 makes itself apparent as soon as you start fighting the final boss

True.  It's not uncommon for many 2 disk RPGs back then to kinda go completely off the rails for disk 2.  Xenogears' disk 2 was basically Fei sitting in a chair narrating stuff that happened due to budget/time constraints.  Disk 2 of Thousand Arms ran out of gas pretty quickly, leading me to believe that there were budget and/or time constraints.  Chrono Cross's disk 2 is certainly an improvement over those examples, but man you're screwed trying to get into Terra Tower if you don't snag Starky. 

I've said it a million times, but one of the only JRPGs I can recall where the second half was a vast improvement over the first half was Legend of Dragoon.  The first 2 disks were a slog but the second two were when the game decided "now, we're going to be awesome."  (I will not journal that game, though.  The finicky timing on the additions is a big pain in the butt.) 

And wait, there's a "right" way and a "wrong" way to beat the final boss?  Hell, I'm just gonna beat the crap out of it like I always do. 

If you've played CT, I absolutely recommend going for the "true" ending. It's not that hard with a little practice.

Just saw the Suicide Squad episode of Arrow. The Harley cameo was a cute touch.
