@Klyde The real question is...who is gonna play the brain-washed friend-turned-enemy that will eventually become an important ally?

...I don't wanna say my guess outloud, so...actually, don't spoil it! I wanna see if I'm right!

I've already preordered the game just so that I know that I'll have access to a version of it that I can feasibly beat (I can barely get my ancient PSX tech to run, let alone for the 200+ hours that'd take for me to beat this).

It'd also be nice to have a Class system that isn't simultaneously Completely Superfluous and Guide Dammit.


Preordered it for the same reason. I'm looking forward to it a lot, though. It the last one that I really felt needed a remake (Basically 8 & 9 were the only ones that felt like genuinely polished games the first time through), as well as the only DQ besides #2 that I don't like so far (I've yet to play DQ6, but at least I already have that).

Would you call IKEA furniture poorly designed because it requires an instruction sheet to assemble?

If there's a significant chance that you'll screw it up and waste all of their time and money? Yes.

But I don't think that's the point DJ was trying to make - having to use an outside source in order to progress means that they didn't design it with user-friendliness in mind. You could design the best game ever, but it will never amount to anything if no one can play it. A game is supposed to be like a self-contained world, for the most part, or perhaps a fancy puzzle-box. At the very least, all the pieces have to be there, and readily available in one form or another. In a game like Unlimited SaGa, it's like buying an IKEA chair with no manual and no screws/nuts etc., completely unassembled, and now you have to call up customer service so they can walk you through the assembly.

Oh. Well, that's two RPG-loving old-school  samurai I've had the pleasure of conversing with, then. =)

Another "universal truth" I find is that the people with the loudest car stereos always play the crappiest music.

Hey, I heard good music come out of a loud car once!...though, I think that old guy was just hard of hearing, so that was the only way he was gonna hear his smooth jazz and Beatles-era rock...

Aaaand it's a mobile game. Take that for what you will.

Oh great, so I found out that I really have been sick lately! Because the juice I have been drinking was expired. In fact, it's "use-by" date was the day I bought it, so of course it wasn't gonna last. I thought I looked at the date, but it was the last thing I grabbed, at I wasn't expecting to find it...damnit...once again, my haste has led me to more suffering...

I think it's a universal truth that all college anime clubs are creepy.  I found this true at SUNY Albany, NYU, and Rutgers (New Brunswick), 1996- 2008.

Oh, I live, like, 8-10 blocks from SUNY Albany (and about 6 from the Sage campus). Just far enough away that the college students won't cause any problems at night, but close enough that if I ever tried to go back to college, I won't have to walk that far to be disappointed.

I thought they had talked about a PC months ago, while they were showing off the PS4 version at PAX East?

I guess Shuumatsu no Izetta looks interesting enough to at least give a shot.  It's an original series so we're going into it knowing basically nothing.

Though does anyone else think these like-WW2-but-not-quite settings are getting sort of trite?

Yes.

Oh god they made a Keijo anime.  I'm ashamed I even know what that is...

The first time I saw a trailer for it, I thought it was an anime adaption of Dead or Alive Xtreme 3.

  • Gundam Season 2 - While there are no guarantees in life, it is Gundam, and I am too invested in these characters to not see this through to the end.
  • Drifters - It's guaranteed to be fun, if nothing else.
  • March Comes in Like A Lion - this sounds too relevent to my life, but unlike ReLife, I think that relevence might make it more enjoyable instead of tipping me over the line into crazyville
  • ClassicaLoid - this looks nuts
  • Time Bokan 24 - I really liked the Yatterman remake they did in the '00s, as well as the sort-of sequel that aired last year, so why not?
  • Izaetta - This will either be interesting, or extremely boring. I have a feeling I'll probably have to give it a few episodes before I decide which side it falls under...
  • Trickster - I got a good feeling about this for reasons I cannot discern.

...hey, Fall's looking better than the Summer, at least...

Oh boy, I finally go to bed early, only to wake up at 2 AM. And dangerously dehydrated to boot. I guess sleeping with a quilt is not safe when its this hot, even with an air conditioner...

it's oddly satisfying to properly enunciate bad-mint-on

It also helps you spell it!
