316  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: new union game. as in yggdra union. on: March 31, 2011, 11:28:48 AM
Every time I've tried to play Yggdra Union I've gotten bored with it. The battle system makes utterly no sense to me and any rpg that uses a card system generally turns me off. I still intend to finish it someday. I've got Knights in the Nightmare too but haven't started it. I don't really get the whole Dept. Heaven thing; are these games just standalone with loose connection (as in cameos and etc.) or are they actually leading up to something big story-wise? Are the other Union games just spin-offs of Yggdra Union or are they "episodes" in the series as well?

Wikipedia seems to think Dept Heaven games are unconnected story-wise, but Union games are spinoffs/sequels/prequels of Yggdra Union and not main episodes.
Supposedly, those "episodes" are numbered based on  battle system complexity with Riviera being first.

The Dept. Heaven games are loosely connected storywise but they ARE connected.  They all share the same universe and certain characters are present in more than one game in story related ways (not just cameos).  My impression is that Yggdra Union happens first, followed by Kights in the Nightamare, followed by Riviera.  Blaze Union and Gloria Union are spinoff games and are not part of the Dept. Heaven series.

*spoiler warning for Geass R2*

Code Geass R2 is not nearly as good as season 1 but it still has some very cool parts.  It's just so unnecessarily confusing compared to season 1.  I can't count the number of times I was like "huh what?" at something going on and never getting any resolution.  Like when chigusawa (the dark skinned chick?) and the ninja maid and that curly hair rebel guy were in the forest and she's like "I'll kill you!" and im like what is going on here?!!!!!!!!!!  Speaking of the ninja maid....how stupid a plot device is it to have her be able to disguise herself as lelouch perfectly?  it's hard to be lamer than that.  Also a certain character death was incredibly pointless and added needless drama when we already had something similar happen but done much better in season 1.  yeah.

Well Blaze Union never came out here so I don't think this will either.  As long Atlus brings Gungnir over everything is good...

I'm guessing you aren't a fan of Guilty Gear/Blazblue music either if you don't like the music in this game.  I think it's excellent.

It's not homophobia, it's bad character design.

It really is.
321  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Hard Corps: Uprising on: March 20, 2011, 12:58:58 AM
This game is like woah.  Any fan of 2D action games is really missing out if they don't get this. 
322  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Hard Corps: Uprising on: March 19, 2011, 12:57:46 AM
I got the game and it is addictive and hard.  
323  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Hard Corps: Uprising on: March 16, 2011, 10:18:43 PM
I may be getting this, I still don't know much about it. 
324  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Sega Saturn on: March 14, 2011, 01:41:26 PM
Well they look that way cause they kinda are.  The battle system is about as uninspired as it gets.  The graphics are nice looking and the game has good music but the game isn't that great overall imo.  Working designs translation is funny at least
325  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Sega Saturn on: March 13, 2011, 03:11:31 PM
This is still my favorite system.  I think most of the really good games were mentioned already but I'll throw Silhoutte Mirage in there, though it is Japan only.  I know there's a Playstation version released in the US by Working Designs, and I've read about changes they made and stuff but I haven't played it.  Point is though, it's one of the best 2D action games I've played and I will always have fond memories of it.

I also really like Virtual On, and it was actually the main reason I originally got the system.  Graphics and stuff not nearly as good as the arcade version (which I played years later) but it's still Virtual On.  

Panzer Dragon games, Dragon Force,  Astal, Fighter's Megamix, Albert Odyssey Gaiden, Shinning Wsdom. Shinobi

I'm glad someone else liked Astal.  It isn't well known but it's a good game.  Graphics, music, and gameplay were all very good but not much extra content (you can't even create a save file) so you prettymuch had to beat it in one sitting. 

Sonic Jam is also a really good game, it's a collection of sonic1,2,3 & knuckles and has a cool 3D museum thingy. 

Also for Nights, if you can find the Christmas Nights "demo" disk that is also really good and the data links with your main Nights file

Yeah not many people seem to be playing this.  I'm at Solomon Temple in Ys II. 

Ys VI is really good I agree.  It was my first Ys game (have the PS2 version)
327  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ys I&II Chronicles on: February 27, 2011, 01:25:21 AM
Well I got mine but I've not played it much yet.  I wish you could change the artwork any time during the game instead of having to choose between Chronicles or Complete when starting a file. 
328  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: 2011 - The best year ever? on: February 25, 2011, 12:35:09 AM
thanks for the link.  I'll be looking forward to the game
329  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: 2011 - The best year ever? on: February 24, 2011, 10:14:26 PM
Looking at 2011, it's been a long while since there were so many games I want packed in 365 days. Looking at the incoming big/revolutionary titles, we are getting (I probably forgot some, so say and I'll edit the list) it makes me wonder if there was ever a better year to be a gamer.

Katawa Shoujo

Is that actually coming out this year?  I thought it was in eternal limbo or something.
330  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New Sting, possibly Dept. Heaven game in the works? on: February 24, 2011, 07:08:43 PM
I'm certainly looking forward to this.  Sting is one of my favorite developers mainly cause the Dept. Heaven series games are all very good and have innovative mechanics.  I don't think Hexyz Force was that great but I love Riviera (GBA ver at least, didnt' play PSP one).  I even like the Evolution games on dreamcast lol
