I actually thought Graces f had an interesting story. It wasn't perfect, but I though the beginning, middle, and most of the final arc was quite a bit above the standards of the series. I liked the cast as well - yes, even Asbel. I think my brother shared Ranadiel's opinion of him, and he can prone to some really stupid decisions, but I can always tell that his heart is in the right place, and found that quite endearing, especially considering his overall character arc.

My point was to be careful what you wish for, because an entire cast of native Japanese-speakers acting in English probably isn't going to sound the way you want it to.


...I actually thought that Clock Tower PSX had a good dub. At the very least, I've heard far worse from almost every other game released on the Playstation, many of which were supposedly dubbed by native English speakers. Their accents are noticeable, but not glaringly so, and on the whole, they gave far most honest attempts at making their lines sound fluid and believeable than, say, any of Capcom's games from that era.

Honestly, it seems more like a lot of these have some of the old devs attached to them. Not all, but certainly the most prominent.

It's not really clear to me whether the Switch has touch or not.  I don't think Nintendo has actually said.  At the very least, though, it won't be used for anything essential in Switch games.  After all the whole point is to 'switch' seamlessly from handheld to console, and you can't exactly use it in console mode.

That doesn't mean it's not there, though.  I guess it could be present for navigation and non-gaming tablet-like features on the go.

Well, now it's confirmed to be a one-screen experience. They didn't metion whether or not it'd be a touchscreen still, but chances are good that its not, unless touch-TVs become a huge fad...

I never tried Jade Cocoon. And how does the sequel fair in comparison? I wouldn't mind trying out some more obscure PS2 RPGs.

Ugh, I guess we'll be seeing a lot of ports and remasters again. Not that I'll be getting any, unless they change something substantial (which Ninty tends to, admittedly).

Eagerly awaiting the return of Sega and their next console named "Bait".

Will Neo-Seaman come packed in? Though, knowing Sega, it won't come in its own case. I'm not looking forward to taking Seaman out of a plastic bag. (Those things can be tough to open sometimes)

Well done naming a hairless green lizard man "Barbarossa"!

...maybe he's supposed to be a Bearded Lizard?

The final dungeon has a save point right before the end! =D =| =(

Must be talking about the remake (as FFIII NES/Famicom was infamous for having the very last opportunity to save located between the first endgame dungeon (where you get the fourth set of Jobs) and the final three dungeons of the game (though technically Forbidden Land Eureka was optional). Styx Tower and the Dark World had to be tackled in one go though (and both dungeons are full of assholes, from instant death slinging wizards to dragons to the four Dark World Crystal Bosses and Cloud of Darkness herself).

Yup, they added that in the remake. Unfortunately, backtracking out of there could be tedious if you needed to resupply/grind, though.

Yeah, I was a bit harsh on that name. Compared to other systems in history, it's downright OK. Perhaps I should wait a few minutes to let stuff sink in, instead of posting my initial reactions.

a handheld system that never leaves the house.

I'd bet that will be the vast majority of Switch use, including my own.

Same here, but I love the option. Depending on battery life and how easily the controller bits slip on and off the sides of the screen, I think I might give this one a chance. It doesn't help that it's coming out in March, which I happen to have a birthday near the end of...

...actually, I really am concerned about B/C. I saw a lot of ports, or at least what looks like ports, so I'd love to think I could bring over my Wii U downloads, if not full disc games, but the switch to a cartridge format isn't exactly leaving me hopeful...

Start scribbling Blonde Terra-Leanne yuri

Sorry! Yeah this is why real jobs and me don't get along... super well.

Actually all this aside, I do have an actual contribution which is that I checked out the FF Brotherhood series... yeah that was pretty fun, nice and short too, but honestly pretty entertaining.

I don't know why but I loved the whole diner hamburger scene, it was like FF meets road to perdition or something lol.

Yeah, I know of at least one person who thought it was a good idea to draw porn in a normal office setting. While he is not me, I like to think he's the me I could've been. The me that drew tits on a fox at work and said "yes, this is totally a good thing! I want to continue doing this for the rest of my life!"
Needless to say, I regret ever speaking to this person...because he's been far more (monetarily) successful than I ever could be! Goddamn my moral compass!

Fortunately, more and more (light) novel series are translated to English. They started releasing Legend of the Galactic Heroes earlier this year.

They did?! I spent an hoursearching Sentai's website trying to find news about it back in August...

Yep. Volume 3 comes out next month.

I haven't read it (yet), but the reviewer I handed it to became an instant fan.

Oh..........books......that's....that's what you meant. Okay. I thought you meant the DVD collection was finally being distributed. Oh well...

Busy evening planned ahead for tonight so I decided to squeeze my daily 30-minute cardio workout before work. With workout complete and two hours into work, I feel like a zombie now.

Me at work:

We're talking about a fanbase that went out of its way to undub two of the best-dubbed JRPGs on the PS2, and did it again for P4 when it released on the Vita. I guess they just really need to hear those original voices. Not that I wouldn't want the option for a Japanese dub, but at this point, I just want a good dub. Period.
