Its not the translation, its the ROM it patches into that causes issues.

Cant really recall having any issues with Demons Souls, so they obviously got there in the end. Hopefully it wont take them too long to patch things up. Sad to see that games require so much post release maintenance these days, easy access to patching through the internet has made developers very sloppy.

I wouldn't have been so bad if the terminology was at least intuitive to some degree and not as confusing and similar sounding. I just couldn't get my head around all the faux French they threw at me for no apparent reason. It's one thing if a game is complicated because it has a deep multi layered plot. Its another if its because of confusing, made up words you have to look up and memorise in order to make any sense of the plot.

If RE2 is ever remade (Never happening), I would want the camera system and controls to stay the same, although then people would bitch that it's not like RE5 or vice versa.  Maybe it's best to leave the old games alone and if you want to play RE2 or whatever game, just pop it in and enjoy XD.

Actually, it is being remade. Just not in the way you'd expect. A Wii remake resembling Dead Space Extractions game-play (rail shooter) is coming out in a while (if it hasn't already). As far as I can tell, it takes you through the RE2 and code Veronica campaigns.

The storytelling was indeed horrible. The only character that didn't annoy me was Sazh, and he was supposed to be the comedy relief. Fang might have been OK but I didn't get far enough to actually get her in my party, so I didn't see much of her. I could probably live with the story if it wasn't for all the ridiculous terminology that only the characters understood. Its quite amazing that despite hating almost every aspect of the game, I'm actually compelled to pick it up again and beat it.

Silent Hill 4 was really good.  The damn babies coming out of the wall in your room scared the hell outta me.

Although it was made by Team Silent, I heard rumours that SH4 was actually an original horror game with "Silent Hill" slapped on last minute to sell more copies.
Would make sense since it was developed alongside SH3 and isn't actually set in Silent Hill. That's why I didn't include it in the "original line" of SH games.

Great news about a new Suikoden, though. Although many fans, including myself, fear for the future of the franchise.

I think, what it boils down to, is that its a great sign that the Suikoden series is not dead. A couple of weeks ago, most fans where mourning the loss of the ''Suikoden team'', and then we get this new anouncement. I never once thought that the Suikoden team 'disbanded' announcemnt meant the death of Suikoden. I think most people where making a mountain out of a molehill, plus I had reason to think otherwise due to my correspondences with Konami and the Suikoden creative staff members.

I wouldn't be so sure, look at what happened to Silent Hill after Team Silent was disbanded. What followed ware not terrible games, but they didn't come close to the original three.

Spam them if you want, not going to make any difference. Konami, like every big company, invests in marketing and research. In other words, people who tell them what will sell. The decision to make a game of a specific genre in a specific setting for a specific platform is based on number crunching. In other words, Konami couldn't care less about your emails. If you want your feedback to be heard, spam indie devs.

Is that you,Maxximum?

hmmm, maybe its time to change my avatar.

I'd recommend Enchanted Arms. Most people didn't like it but I think it's a very solid, world-spanning JRPG with a very interesting, strategic battle system.

Saw this for a decent price a while ago, kind of regret I didn't pick it up right there and then.

Its odd, despite all the complaining I do about FFXIII, I'm actually compelled to pick it up again and beat it before the sequel comes out.

So I guess Square Enix wants to apologize to their fans for "trolling" :P

From ESRB.

That's funny, because as a European I actually feel like I'm being trolled right now.

If you want someone to blame, blame the PR and press releases, since the news items are based off those.

Heh, I was actually just trying to be helpful. Wasn't really looking for someone to blame since I'm not really bothered by it, just threw it out there in case someone thought it was worth correcting.
749  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Suikoden Topic on: September 21, 2011, 05:08:33 PM
As much as Id like to see them bring back the old world, I think its better this way.
Let the new team do its thing, if they can nail the Suikoden feel, then there should be plenty of new characters to get attached to. If they can't, then at the very least they wont be crapping over the original Suikodens.
750  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Epic JRPGs for PS3/360 on: September 21, 2011, 04:54:47 PM
Long story short, you are indeed screwed.
If you want jRPGs on par with the old games, get a handheld.
