For Klyde, I felt bad and came out of retirement for him.  Rainbow hair, I remember he dyed his hair real cool once, and the "baka" in honour of Photon who wrote it on everyone (no, I don't mean to say you're an idiot, honest) ... I thought I was the only one who ever watched it (loved the music).  ...and famous ellipses. ;)




Dice you have scored major points with me. I LOVE IT!! In fact I am going to make a print of this and hang it in my tattoo room. I am beyond touched. This is officially the coolest freakin' thing anyone has done for me online ever.  If this were 15 years ago, I would IM you now on AIM and ask you to be my "online girlfriend" LOL

Well I wasn't going to chime in on the discussion of the SMT price tage but seeing as how it is still going strong I'll throw out my misguided opinion on the matter.

The simple fact is JRPG's do not sell as well as other titles. Yet we all want to them localized. The people who want these games will gladly pay whatever is asked for them, when the want them (myself included), as illustrated in "completed listings" on ebay (just look up Suikoden 2).

With the aforementioned being fact, it only seems reasonable they charge a bit more IMO. I'm actually surprised we don't see this more often. And when it comes to a company like atlus that pumps out quality localizations I not only accept the price hike, I support it. If an extra 10 bucks per title helps to get more games I want to play available in a language I can comprehend I'll gladly pay.

Cost vs. hours is irrelevant to me. What is relevant, is what actually gets localized. The only way to increase odds of localization is to increase how profitable said projects are. Translating and publishing a JRPG in NA now cannot be nearly as profitable as it was 15 years ago yet we all still want to see it happen. It seems to be as simple as that to me. And when I look at that way I am fine with paying more.

happy as I am that we are getting the game in NA I do wish we were getting a LE Edition. Looks like I'm gonna be dropping more money on April 16th than I had anticipated... I learned my lesson with things like this in the past. I either buy this now or resolve myself to paying 100 bucks for it a year or two down the road when I actually get around to playing it.

Pardon the Double Post but: http://www.siliconera.com/2013/04/02/why-fire-emblem-awakenings-characters-have-no-feet/

And now the biggest mystery of the Fire Emblem: Awakening is solved.

(Honestly though, with the game's plot as it is, the feetless character models kinda fits with the game's Saturday Morning Cartoon theme).

Ahhhh, closure at last. That bothered me since I got the game. Albeit silly I know, I just couldn't help but be irked by it. You'd think after 20 some years of enjoying SD characters and whatnot I'd be ok with this but something about those character models lacking feet was just... weird...

I'm so torn right now! I want to move onto a 3ds SMT title as soon as I am done with P2 IS but I can't decide whether I should go for soul hackers or overclocked. I sampled overclocked and loved it. But i get pretty excited over new releases and I know I'll be picking up soul hackers day 1 (to get the soundtrack and whatnot)

Any suggestions?

EDIT: I am already a few hours in on overclocked... I've been nickel and diming it at work in my spare time.

Well I may not have been pony-a'-sized **tear** personally but I will tip my hat to you, none the less, dice. Freakin' awesome thread! You have more then made up for the Persona 5 gag you got me with yesterday-LoL

The cuteness level of things around here has increased greatly due to your contribution.

The April fool is that you believed her when she said it's an April fool.

Well folks normally I don't dig comedy (with some exceptions such as "The idiot adventures of Photon Earth") but after breaking my aversion to subtitles in recent weeks I decided to go back and watch "Humanity Has Declined" on CR.

Wow, I can't say enough good about the series. Highly entertaining. Albeit short, each episode was thoroughly enjoyable with the exception of one brief (but necessary) lull toward the end. It goes from funny, to charming, to clever, to damn-near brilliant very swiftly. It becomes confusing in a whacky sort of willy-wonka fashion but doesn't leave you in the dark long enough to feel lost, hasty to make sense of the insanity your bearing witness to. And the icing on the cake? The fairies in the series may very well be the cutest thing I have ever beheld in animation... seriously I want one of those little f****rs tattooed on me I liked em' so much.

And I have one more review...

Bear with me here... this could get longwinded...

Persona Trinity Souls... my official verdict... absolutely freakin' sucked... with a capital "SUCK"... worst thing I have watched in at least a year... take note of my ellipsis-relapse in trying to convey my disgust...
729  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on: April 01, 2013, 02:53:26 PM
I can officially say this is one of my favorite ps3 RPGs.

such lofty praise!!!  all that amazing competition on the ps3 :P

Yeeeee-up!! And I stand behind that statement :) This gen provided some fierce competitors vying for the title of "Chroma's favorite PS3 JRPG" but very few managed to capture my heart and swallow my time like Nino... then again very few had world maps, and even quasi- acceptable gameplay for that matter...
730  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Persona 5 Confirmed for Winter 2013, PS3 on: April 01, 2013, 02:45:02 PM
damn... I hate to admit it but you got me GOOD!! I am so freakin' gullible...

You win this round, you cunning vixen you...
731  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on: March 31, 2013, 06:23:48 PM
Well I officially finished all the post game stuff today. Save, the last few (time consuming) items I would need to craft to complete the alchemy quest. I have seen everything Nino has to offer....

Enjoyable as it has been I do feel rather cheated in the ending. I thought all the post game stuff would bring closure for me... it has not... although I am glad I did it all because it certainly did lend a great deal to fleshing things out. And without spoiling anything about it I just want to say I found the conductor himself to be a very amusing character :)

Code:
I feel like after accomplishing all the post game crap you should be able to beat the game again and get a better ending or something.

I can officially say this is one of my favorite ps3 RPGs. Didn't beat Tales of Graces F or Disgaea 4 for me though. Close, but no cigar as they say.

It has come to my attention that using an electric cooker is painfully slow when you are used to gas.

I have had my own house for about 3-4 years now with a huge kitchen. A nice large stove thingy built into my counter-top and an oven that is built into the wall. It looks pretty cool actually... And yet, with all these fancy devices that came with the homestead I use 3 microwaves I have plugged in at the same time!!! (LoL) I have become a master of the microwave!!!!! With my 3 micro-combo-cooking-system I can cook enough for a weeks worth of meals in under an hour with minimal effort using disposable cookware (zero clean-up).

Shows how much I know. I put over a hundred hours into DS and then another ~60 into DS:O and never even knew there were prevalent bugs. Evidently I am lucky to an absurd degree. Bullet dodged, I guess

That is how I felt about Ar Tonelico 2. I played through the entire thing, on PS3 no less without so much as a single freeze or anything. I was quite surprised when I learned how some actually consider the game bugged to the point of not being able to be finished.

I hope my 3DSXL black-out was a fluke.... I do leave my 3ds on 24/7 (just closed when not in use) so I'm certain that couldn't be helping the situation.
734  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on: March 30, 2013, 08:12:57 PM
I just finished the game a few minutes ago. I'll have to wait a bit for my final impressions to set in but overall I had a blast playing the game. And WOW, that last boss battle was intense! Damn spikes and satellite things drove me crazy!

Kudos bytor!! and I concur... that last boss actually gave me trouble... its like everything is going just dandy and then "BAM!!"- enemies regenerated, your slapped with debuffs and "chaos" gets cast all in perfect succession to completely ruin your day...

Wow...REALLY disagree with the article on this game. NNK, throughout the game, made me feel like I did in the 80's when I first played video game RPG's.

I thoroughly loved the title myself, but the difference between NNK and games from the 8 bit and 16 bit era was innovation. This stuff was new and exciting then. Now its just exciting because it is rare.

While I still get a sense of nostalgia playing titles like this and newer entries in the tales series, without the aforementioned magic being "new" to me in some sense it remains "nostalgic"... and the calender still reads 2013...

That is not to say I don't love it. I do. Just in different respect than I did say breath of fire or secret of mana the first romp through those titles.

I sort of thought that was the main point of the article. That is, the editorial was not written to denounce NNK but to exploit the lack of innovation in the genre as of late. At least that was what I took from it.

EDIT: Although I do realize the editorial does lay into Nino pretty hard, I sort of just took that as the way he chose to get his point across and not the actual intent of the writing.
735  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Should I replay FFX or wait for the remake? on: March 30, 2013, 03:06:50 PM


Honestly though, the question itself basically amounts to "Do you want to die of AIDs or Cancer?" Both methods are slow, agonizing ways to go, while one choice offers a glimmer of hope and the other offers no hope at all.


You know your serious about your games when you draw comparisons like that-LOL

Thats why I love your posts Aeolus! A priceless analogy if ever I read one!! This thread is chalk full of good verbage actually...

On that note, my two cents on the matter...

When it comes to Square Enix I must say I could be excited about remakes or new IPs given the project in question. The problem is, that on either front, they have failed my expectations miserably. There are still so many 16-bit era games that have not seen the light of day  outside of japan (save fan translations for roms to play via emulation) that  I would LOVE to see remade and localized. Yet instead we get more IOS incarnations of final fantasies that are already available on multiple platforms.

And when it comes to new IP's I simply just want to see something new pioneered in the genre of the JRPG, on home consoles, to restore some faith... I don't even care if it sucks... I'll buy... I swear, its like square enix forgot what made them so popular to begin with...

At the end of the day, regardless of whether we are talking remakes or new games altogeather, I simply DON'T want to hear "final fantasy" unless there is a "type-0" (won't ever happen) or a "6" (probably won't ever happen...) attached to it.
