This video is hilarious and yet disturbing at the same time.

Enjoy!

This is great news.  I wanna know what they are gonna focus on.  Will we finally get to see the Jinchuu arc "properly" animated?  Will we get to see exactly what happened between Kenshin getting his cross-shaped scar and him meeting Kaoru?

Actually, it would be a pleasant surprise if they came up with something entirely new.  I'm just glad it got the green light and I hope everything goes well.

That girl is one twisted human being.  She explains that she was just trolling the whole time in this vid.  I believe her entire YouTube profile is devoted to her sick sense of humor.  It's the same old strategy of "dress like the enemy and commit atrocities."

Anyway, my condolences to all who've lost loved ones in Japan.  Things are not looking good right now with that nuclear reactor.  This incident has surpassed Three Mile Island.

I have a couple of other gaming regrets that I just remembered;

1.  I let my cousin borrow Xenogears and never got it back (they skipped town).  Luckily about 8 yrs later, I was able to find it at a local GameStop for 25 bucks, Greatest Hits.

2.  I let a friend borrow Castlevania SotN and his little brother broke it.  I still haven't been able to find another copy (at least for a fair price).

Wasting 3 hours of my life playing Unlimited Saga (PS2).  It was the first time Square had let me down, but it certainly wasn't the last.  Looking back, I guess it was a sign of things to come...which leads me to my next one;  Buying Final Fantasy X-2 at full price.  Need I elaborate?

Edit:  I got one more for you guys; Wasting 40+ hours of my life playing Tales of Legendia.

For some reason, I kept believing the plot, the characters, and the gameplay itself would get better, but I was VERY wrong.  I even played the epilogue all the way through, only to be disappointed in the end.  I guess I should have took that review seriously;

I LOLed @ The "Worst" Samurai!  They hit a bullseye with that one.

How is Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits, Zodak? It got some nasty reviews if I recall correctly, but It seems like it has some real positive traits from what you've already said so far.

Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits actually got good reviews, even from this site;

I think you're confusing it with Arc the Lad: End of Darkness, which was the direct sequel from TOS.  It was pretty awful.

My avatar is Darc from Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits.  This guy is went from a slave and outcast to the King of the Deimos over his adventures.  He is a very deep character and he's one of my favorite RPG characters.  I share certain character traits with him in real life, so that's why I use him as an avatar.

I would love to see a prequel to The Legend of Dragoon.  It would be awesome to see the Dragon Campaign played out.  Imagine the rise of the original Dragoons and their back stories, the rise and fall of Melbu Frahma and the Winglies, and an improved battle system with more techniques, all on a next-gen console.

this


You could make an awesome system to go with that. Airship? we don't need no airship! Characters can fly wherever they need to go. That way, if you want random encounters, go on the ground. If not, just fly where you want to go.

As said, the ending would be a bit... depressing, BUT it can end on a nice note with Rose staying alive.

You know what?  This.

  I think that it would be a nice touch to be able to tame each Dragoon's dragon.  Once you tame them to a certain level, you'll be able learn techniques from them and eventually even ride on them. Imagine if you are able to summon your dragon in battle (ala FFX) and be able to do certain team up attacks with them.  Of course I'd have the ability to summon as the final ability you learn with Dragon taming.  

I also think that an ending like that would be epic!  It would be a definite departure from most RPG endings.

I'm glad you guys gave some feedback.  I know it's wishful thinking, but I hope some talented developers will look at some of the ideas on this board.  They could make a KILLING!

With Xenogears, all I'd like is a remake with a "complete" second disk story, made for a next-gen console.

It's such irony that a series that was so completely inspired by Western RPGs (both computer and pen&paper) got such limited play in the US.

Yeah, I feel the same way about King's Bounty.
27  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Wizardry on the PS3 on: December 04, 2010, 06:55:17 PM
Ahh Wizardry, alive and kickin' =D  There were Japanese PSX remakes of the first five Wizardry games that never got localized either, they looked really good too.

Talk about old school... I love Wizardry.  I still remember using graphing paper to map out those dungeon floors and being instakilled by the Highwaymen.  Man, those were the days.

I'm glad to see it's still around and hopefully it gets localized (wishful thinking).
28  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Favorite and Least Favourite Tactical RPGs on: December 04, 2010, 06:49:33 PM
Oh I forgot about that. Romance of the Three Kingdoms is a big time favorite for me. I especially like 10 for the PS2 and 11 for the PC.

Yeah, I have 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, and 11.  I have played 9 and 10, but I don't own them.  All of the ones I've played are great strategy games.  For some reason, there are only 2 Dynasty Tactics games.  The games sold relatively well and had good reviews, so I don't understand why Koei hasn't made another one.  I guess it's all about Dynasty Warriors nowadays.

Again, the Dynasty Tactics series are great SRPGs.

Favorites:

Final Fantasy Tactics/War of the Lions
Arc the Lad: TOS
Stella Deus
Dynasty Tactics 1 and 2
Tactics Ogre: The Knight of Lodis
Bahamut Lagoon
Front Mission (the original)

Honorable Mentions:

Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together
Ogre Battle: The March of the Black Queen

Least Favorites:

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance and A2
Disgaea 1 and 2


I ABHORRED Tactics Advance and A2.  They didn't do the original any justice and the law system was awful.  The story was pitiful.
While the gameplay of Disgaea was pretty good, I didn't care for the animesque plot.

BTW, I can't believe nobody even mentioned Dynasty Tactics.  I grew up playing Romance of the Three Kingdoms (strategy) and Destiny of an Emperor (RPG) on NES.  I feel like Dynasty Tactics is a very good merger of those games and it deserves some love.

Grahf, Id, and Miang from Xenogears.

Grahf and Id personified destruction.  While Id did it for pure enjoyment, Grahf did have his motives. 

Miang was very subtle with hers, but also effective.  Who can justify torturing a child?
