So, this is pretty exciting news to hear since it's from Square Enix that isn't an iOS port. However, I'm someone who has yet to play a Star Ocean game. Should I start out with the 1st one or 2nd one? Because I can't find a way to play the 1st one since it's only on the SNES and the 2nd one is on PSN Classics.

The first one was actually remade for the psp, if that's an option for you.
But I hear that the PSP port is kinda butt.

The Super Famicom game was far worse, IMO.

Yay, I'm 23. Combined with the fact that it's such a random age, it kinda fucks with my brain.

Like, I looked up "23 year old Video game characters" and this was all I could find after checking 11 pages on Google...

Oh, and the Car salesmen in Catherine was 23 as well, apparently. But that's it.

The first game had lives, but no limited continues. Apparently the second game does that as well. Or at least that's what I'm assuming since no one ever mentions the clear lives system that I can see in screenshots, but then again, do I really trust the internet?

EDIT: Oh hey, I remembered one of my old forumites from another site did a video review of the game, and he actually does bring up the lives thing. Yeah, that wasn't the bad part, it was the "5 stars to earn back a single piece of your health" thing that hurt the game. I plum forgot, there were times when you were better off dying than trying to grind for health...

But honestly, I think the art of subtlety is lost on many writers who more or less insist/repeat life lessons to make sure you got it.   :/

Agreed. To be fair, I could probably tolerate that aspect a lot more now than when I first played ToS if only because now I'm so used to being beaten over the head, I'm just kinda numb to it...

Anyways:

I'm currently playing Pokemon Trading Card Game (GBC via 3DS VC) and Magic the Gathering (1998 version). These are pretty much the Card game RPGs I've wanted since I started playing Yu-Gi-Oh way back when. And to think, had I been born a couple years earlier, I would've been playing them the whole time.

I agree that StarTropics 2 has better controls, but the lives system and more generally frustrating platforming made it a weaker game overall, IMO....or did the first game have limited continues, too? I can't remember anymore and I can't find anybody talking about it. >_<

(going through a full dungeon to get to the Shrine of Kaddan only to face that stupid fucking moving block puzzle is a bag of ass).

Fun fact: That's when I ripped the disc out of my PS2 and sold the game!

I don't care if their lesson is "Don't Kick Puppies", I don't need a single game shoving it's point - any point - down my throat. >_< It's more about how it's handled. I can't speak for VC3 obviously, but I was on board with Symphonia's 'drama button' until about the 8th time they pressed it before I was even halfway through the game. :(

Ugh... the racism in VC 3 is getting rather annoying. I get it, no need to use it as a drama device more than half dozen times.

Is it as bad as Tales of Symphonia's use of Racism as a drama button?

I wish I knew where the screenshots were on that teaser site...

Pudgy has been gaining ground in Japan lately.
I'm starting to wonder if it will become the new fetish eventually.

"Eventually?" It sort of already is, just not an overly popular one.

I just wasn't sure if it converted at all. So yeah, thanks. I'll try to see if I can get a paypal set up tonight, then I'll send a PM to negotiate. I've been loking for a copy of that MM Zero artbook since at least 2008, if not earlier...
72  The Rest / The Bazaar / Re: Dice's Little Pony: Selling is Magic on: April 14, 2015, 01:55:10 PM
Quick question, if I sent a canadian 100 CAD via Paypal, would it charge my account $100 USD, or would it account for exchange rate and fees?
73  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Star Ocean 5 on: April 14, 2015, 12:24:53 PM
I actually don't think it looks that bad. They're not great, but it doesn't weird me out, either...
74  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Star Ocean 5 on: April 14, 2015, 08:55:47 AM
"Star Ocean 5 announced by Tri-Aces and Square-Enix! Coming to PS3 and PS4!"


"More like Star Ocean 3! Takes place on an uncivilized planet!"



Don't get me wrong, a lot of the other details actually sound really neat, but those two points definitely leave me apprehensive. I'll keep an eye on it, at least...

Yeah no. Unless Final Fantasy XV comes to mobile phones, that LINE logo has nothing to do with the platform.
