Aww, I noticed no one here has played Ogre Battle 64, have they? I was just about to ask for some comparisons, but I should probably Finish Ogre Battle: MotBQ first, anyways.

I'm currently playing OB64 again - and have played MotBQ about a dozen times (it's a thing, really). I won't say too much about Ogre Battle 64 though, as I'll be publishing a review on the site sometime eventually.

What kind of comparisons are you looking for? I still prefer MotBQ, but I'm a biased source. OB64 has a few more character classes, a few new wrinkles, but still has the fun real-time / turn-based strategy RPG feel of the first. If you like one, by all rights, you'll probably like the other. A super-fun game, in my book.

About halfway through it now. Nice game.

Objection!

(I do not actually object to this.)

Squeenix needs to just make a proper FFT sequel (not Advance) with more classes/abilities and more balance. It would be a great game, it really would.

Funny, we're currently developing a feature that may interest you. Check back in the middle of December.

As for me, I've played a ton of SRPGs. Since I've been working on some feature / editorial content around this topic, I won't share too much in this thread - but I will say this - the console Fire Emblem and non-Disgaea NIS SRPG games don't get quite enough credit. And I'll be really happy once we get Venus & Braves here.

In the US? Sure there is. Xenoblade's been out for over half a year with hardly a word on NA localization. Monado (old name) has been pulled from the Nintendo release schedule (may be for renaming, may not). As for The Last Story, the robust online component could be a killer in the US - but being a Mistwalker game I'm sure it stands a better chance than others. Again, no news sounds like bad news - but I was kind of hoping we were past the days of no-localization on major JP releases.

No Xenoblade / Last Story would be terrible. :-(
69  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The new Wikileaks kerfuffle on: November 29, 2010, 05:21:59 PM
I personally think wikileaks is necessary.

I disagree, with all due respect. While you're right on nearly every count about televised journalism, there are plenty of reasonable web journalistic resources with low spin. There's a big difference between reporting on the truth of war as it happens (which is a necessity), and (in essence) stealing classified / secret information from world governments, making it public, and putting innocent lives at risk. Yes, I suppose that its good to know what our government is doing behind closed doors, but at the same time (especially with the rise of asynchronous warfare) it is a remarkably dangerous game to publish documents like this and risk lives on both sides.

There's a good reason why the Valerie Plame thing was kind of a big deal.

International diplomacy, especially between ideologically different states, has been a game of shadows for a long time, right or wrong. And it has to be for a reason. Bringing it into the light has some very real, very dangerous consequences. While some might like to see it changed for the better, I doubt many would be willing to pay the cost.

Again, just my opinion.

I'd vote for Chaos in the original Final Fantasy. Anyone who basically uses random numbers to be undefeatable half the time is truly, implacably, evil.

Another good show, guys. It seemed a little like OpenWorldGameFan for a while in the middle, but definitely still a solid show.
72  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Podcast Thread on: November 22, 2010, 01:52:39 PM
I have a two-pronged question to our intrepid podcast staff.

(1) What thing (be it character type, plot device, gameplay mechanic, or anything else) would you like to never see in any RPG, ever again?

(2) What thing (same qualifiers) have you never seen before in an RPG, that you'd like to see implemented?

In three parts:


1. Pat's review of Shiren the Wanderer brought me into roguelikes.

2. I like roguelikes now.

3. Fin.
