Cliff was 36.

Fayt, Sophia and Maria were college age. Nel and Albel were both their early twenties, I think. Adray was actually old-old, not JRPG-old. Mirage was... I have no idea, mid-twenties? Older? And the two token kid characters could easily be kept out of your final party if you didn't want them. Yay for that!

I honestly can't remember. Star Tropics mostly bring to mind images of tiles and the frustration that came with it, which is kind of weird, because I do remember liking the game. Not that Star Tropics 2 is an easy game, but movements were more fluid and to me that made it more tolerable.

Animal Crossing New Leaf: As somebody who's never played an Animal Crossing game, why should I be interested in this title over games like Yoshi's New Island, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze or Super Mario Galaxy 2?

You should be interested in Animal Crossing (any Animal Crossing) if you don't value your free time or life in general. That thing asks you to pay attention to your town every day or else everyone will become all sad. And you don't want the villagers to be sad, because look at 'em! They're so cute! And hey, pulling some weeds or gathering some sea shells isn't too much to ask for, right? Besides, it's so relaxing and gives you a sense of achievement, especially if you can sell off some of the junk and get one step closer to actually owning your own house...

That's how it sucks you in. Animal Crossing is dangerous. If there are other games you want to play anytime soon, stay far, far away.

StarTropics 2: Zoda's Revenge. How well has it aged?

It's been a few years, but from what I remember: pretty well and it was a better game than the first one to begin with (mostly thanks to better controls, being able to move diagonaly is great!).

Eleven years is a long time in videogame tems. And, I don't know, it feels like there's a perfect nostalgia storm brewing around tri-Ace as the result of their inactivity, new owner and so on. Everything Star Ocean 3 related seems weird lately. For instance, two weeks ago I posted this column about how I fucked up and overrated Star Ocean 3 (it was my first proper review for a magazine and I was a stupid teenager) and that game is basically the reason I give not so nice scores so often. The comment section devolved into jokes about how it's impossible to overrate Star Ocean 3, but the thick neon letters between the lines still read: man, that was a great game.

I like it when I say stupid things and related good things happen.

Hey, I remember Jude wondering if Milla's skirt isn't too short! But... other than that I'm drawing a blank.

Anyway, let's just be glad Witch Girl looks legal.

If I didn't know better I would swear Zesty looks like a PS2 game in that picture. Like wtf lol.

Now that you mention it...

Yeah, I can see where you're coming from.

At first it was like, yay girls in functional clothing! Then witch girl happened. I guess every Star Ocean needs one of those. Atleast she's not wearing a floating shower curtain, I guess.

(Favourite silly Star Ocean character design is still Albel. I'm pretty sure you can play female armour bingo with that one and win.)

Awesome news aside from the PS3 and PS4 thing. I think it's getting to the point that developers need to stop doing this. ESPECIALLY this game, since SO4 did an amazing job of showing off just what the PS3 was capable of. But I'm still waiting for a PS4 game that feels like a next-gen game, and clearly this won't be it.

Japanese developers won't have a good reason to stop until the PS3 stops being a thing in Japan. Japanese gamers are buying less consoles and everyone is still happily playing on the PS3. Besides, you have to wonder what kind of budget is needed to take advantage of PS4 tech.

I don't know why, but this makes me really happy. Maybe because I've been thinking about Star Ocean a lot lately for various reasons and this announcement is like, hey, Tomara, your thoughts and feelings are still relevant!

As cool as a tech demo-style Star Ocean would have been, I'm kinda glad it's anime stuff. Aside from the Tales seres they don't really make anime stuff at this level anymore. Also, I love how dramatic the producer is being. Yes, stake your life and legacy on this one single game!

They were adopted by GungHo. I think they had a Grandia MMORPG in the pipeline, but that was in 2013 or so.

Edit: nope, shut that down in 2012. They haven't actually done anything since 2013 if Wikipedia is correct.

The binary theory has been eliminated, though. That those numbers are obviously going to be a date, probably the date on which they properly announce the project. Squeenix is such a tease.

Also, we can't discount the 'complete dicks' theory. That 'STAR' could still turn into 'START', looking at the amount of space a whole date would need.

Squeenix updated their teaser site: http://www.jp.square-enix.com/secret/?hc_location=ufi

It now says:



They zoomed out on the picture and it now shows a blue planet. So, unless they're suddenly in charge of Lunar or are complete dicks, this may very well be a Star Ocean thingie.

Are they kinda hitting on you because thunderes are totally their type? I've had that happen to me. So weird.

The other reaction I tend to get is crying. One editor-in-chief will come up with excuses not to have me talk to people because she's afraid they'll have a bad reaction to my no-nonsense attitude.

From my perspective #2 sounds best. While it may be a start-up, they do seem to have a good idea of what they're doing. You get to do the work you want to do, and you like the game, right? Being able to work something you can be proud of is important. Since you won't have to move this seems to me like the safest bet. Well, as long as they're the type of studio that doesn't pay with promises but with actual money.
