It's a rough game to play, but I think a lot of the hate stems from it being "different" rather than bad. There are some genuinely cool and progressive features. The tech balancing system is neat, the combat is generally pretty solid, generation thing gives you some replayability, and the music is great. Unfortunately it often gets a bad rap because if you sit on the command input screen, the combat music won't change and the loop is pretty short-- it's dynamic and shifts depending on how well each round is going.

Srsly though, it has one of the coolest final boss themes in the series.

If someone did a collection of the old SSI games like Pool of Radiance, Curse of the Azure Bonds etc., I'd be pretty happy.

That would be really cool. I played those as a young lad and had no idea what I was doing. It would be fun to play them again now with some semblance of cognizance. The new (relatively speaking) Pool of Radiance was pretty wonky, if I recall. At least it had Elmo.

How about an HD remake of the Playstation version of Tales of Phantasia in English.  The GBA port (aka only English release) was not very good.

The GBA version is the only one I ever beat, and I agree. It was quite... not good. Or, even better, how about an HD remake of the PSP version with the voice acting and skits!

KH1 Final Mix was fun for the extra boss battle and the cutscenes, as well as a couple of the new attacks it added to smooth things out. I think the addition of reaction commands will be something neat to see, too.

Is the game broken into a generation system like Phantasy Star 2?

That's actually Phantasy Star III.

</pedant>

That's what I meant to say :) And it's an important distinction. I thank you for making it.

Incidentally, PSIII is underrated.

Eugh...Atomos in HD. That would be utterly horrifying.

In the best way.

Also FFIX in HD would be awesome.

That would actually take them more work.

^ that.

Remember, Final Mix in KH1 had no additional voice acting, just some cut up parts of the old VA-- and it was in English, too. I think it would take them more work to go back and change it to regular KH. Plus, they can make an advertising bullet point out of it in the US-- NEVER BEFORE SEEN CONTENT

Track 1, Opening Movie. We sampled it, too :)

From what I've heard, they're going to do a 30-40 year time jump, and have aged versions of the characters IN the movie, but not as a focal point. Which I think is a good way to handle it.

Since we can't get the Thrawn trilogy as a movie series :(

Interesting comments from everyone-- though I think Yeager has my thoughts down pretty well.

I still say I'm not worried about this movie. Abrams is a capable director, and with the screenwriters at his disposal and Disney's record at overlording other studios (Marvel!), I see no way this won't be at least better than the prequel trilogy. Come on guys-- it's new Star Wars.

The plot becomes less and less Disney-centric the deeper into the series you get. I find that sad and awful, but if you're not a fan of Disney, it could mean things get better and better :)

I didn't see a thread for this. Open beta is up now. They've improved it by leaps and bounds since the alpha last year. I am really quite enthralled with this. Large-scale Diablo-style action RPG with a very massive sphere-grid-like skill tree and a cool skill system. Good presentation, too-- and it'll be free when it launches.

Rob and I disagree a bit on it so far, but I'm pretty enthralled with it and look forward to spending more time with it this weekend. Has anyone else tried it out?

I've liked every JJ Abrams film I've seen. Star Wars can only go up from here, and he's got a great team of screenwriters. I am worried 0%.

The guys who wrote the Transformers movies? I am worried 100%

It's not the guys who wrote those. It's Michael Arndt and Lawrence Kasdan. EDIT: Sorry, Kasdan is doing VIII and IX. But Arndt is doing VII. Not Orci or Kurtzmann.

Also, I can appreciate why someone might not like the new Star Trek as compared to the old stuff. It's definitely a different flavor. But as someone that grew up loving Star Wars novels a whole lot more than Star Trek, I was certainly plenty entertained by the new movie.
