I have ten dollars, I think I could afford it. Now then time to figure out what crossovers to have the Capcom characters fight...
662  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: "X" by Monolith (now named Xenoblade Chronicles X) on: June 15, 2014, 08:13:44 AM
I will say one thing, for all the xeno talk, this game bears no resemblance to xenosaga for me. I mean, I played xenogears and all 3 xenosagas, and this has a very different feel compared to them. I think that's a benefit though, given the bad rep xenosaga tends to get.

IIRC, besides the "Xeno" part of the name, certain staff members, and other "things" aside (like use of mechs), it isn't supposed to be similar to the old Xeno- titles (iirc, they really can't be since the "series" has had different publishers over the years; jumping from Square, Namco, and now Nintendo).

I think it's kinda like a Megaman > Mighty Number 9 scenario.  Very similar, but it's "not" because of who owns what.

I could also be way off, I don't really talk about gaming politics, legal stuffs, or buyouts

Well I would think they can probably reuse anything they want from Saga since that was developed by Monolith Studios (although I guess it depends heavily on several legal documents that I have 0 way of accessing or probably even reading) and Namco has sold their entire share in Monolith to Nintendo. The fact that they actually got away with what they did in Saga will always amaze me though. I mean Monolith was founded by the people who made Gears leaving Square to form their own company. You would think that Square would be a little litigious over them making so many freaking call backs/blatant ripping of asset designs. Oh well, time to look to the future. A future that apparently has Zohars, at least in computer files!

I'm actually surprised the Zohar didn't show up anywhere in Xenoblade.

I think the Monado was inspired by it.
I don't see it. One is representation of Jesus that allows humans to interface with 5th dimensional beings and also creates lovecraftian horrors. The other is a representation of a person's will to defy fate (or something like that, I forgot the dialogue from the ending). Other than being McGuffins, I don't see much similarity between them. I am however now wondering if X is going to see a return of naming stuff after stuff from Gnosticism.

.....No one but me cares about a complete set of the Persona Major Arcana Cards? Fine I'll just enjoy these cards by myself. Harumph. :p

Just got Zelos in Tales of Symphonia. So far I am doing pretty good on this run. Also, I am really enjoying replaying Tales of Symphonia. Certainly one of my favorites in the series, and easily the one I have put the most hours in.

I'd guess one of those four "resistance" characters from Twilight Princess. You know, the ones who help you get into the final few dungeons and then storm Hyrule Castle along with you. For that matter, maybe Zant.

.....No I do not know. The only characters I remember from Twilight Princess are Midna and the creepy looking kids that I thought were demon spawn.

I hope they're all still super-British. Nice change of pace from the same voice actors again and again, honestly.
I doubt they will. Since I am assuming NoA will handle the English localization this time rather than letting NoE do it and then take it several months later.
667  Media / General Games / Re: Zelda Musou on: June 14, 2014, 07:20:39 AM
So now that the folks at Nintendo have basically said that they've put characters you'd never think would make a playable appearance in. I must now ask, who are your top ten picks for the final game (not including the characters already confirmed)?

My money's on Sahasrahla, Agahnim, Darunia, Error, Ruto, Malon, Din, Nayru (we don't know that's her on the cover), Fierce Deity Link, and Saria.

My personal picks would be:
Fierce Diety Link
All six sages from OoT(don't remember all their names)
Skull Kid

In case you couldn't tell N64 is my favorite Zelda era. Don't know how likely all of these are, but I am really hoping for the Fire Sage from OoT. Would be freaking awesome.
668  Media / General Games / Re: Zelda Musou on: June 13, 2014, 06:33:49 AM

Obtain a super hookshot to take down Argorok!

Bring its tail down???  No...no no no, stop thinking so small. 

@Aeo yeah I thought it was Nayru... which I gues would have to open up for the other sister goddess' too.  Damn shame this isn't canon at all, I like the idea of a Zelda title where anyone and everyone can take down legions of enemies. :P
Forget the open world Zelda, this is going to be the best Zelda game ever. :D

Also, I noticed that Link was equipped with the mirror shield in the fight following the cut scene, so I am now working under the assumptions that:
1. Characters will have multiple weapons
2. Link's is either shield or sword and shield

Sweet news, get first prints of Persona Q and Persona 4: The Ultimax Ultra Suplex Hold and you'll have a complete set of the major arcana from Persona! (half of them coming with each title) Finally they are making these cards. I wish they were selling a single deck that included the minor arcana as well (so that I could use them as a card deck), but I'll take the best designed major arcana that I have ever seen (not that I have seen a lot).

Basically this guy was the original persona user, but they didn't have the gun things back then and had to use swords instead. Hence the scars. Guns don't leave scars like swords do, you know?
...But it is Yu, how is he the original Persona user?
670  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tri-Ace trademarks New Game "JUDAS CODE" on: June 12, 2014, 06:43:54 AM
I want Valkyrie Profile 3: Hrist :(    (I'm assuming if there would be another game, that would be the name)
Nah the next Valkyrie Profile would be Valkyrie Profile 4: That Creepy Child Stalker (Rufus). We've already done 3 and no Hrist, so on to the next most important character in the series.....but since Odin is dead, we have to go with a replacement.
671  Media / General Games / Re: Zelda Musou on: June 11, 2014, 06:56:03 AM
Oh hey Gannondorf, didn't expect to see you here. (jk) Also Zelda with a hookshot, because why the heck not.

Also I just realized that 75% of the shown playable characters are female. I am okay with this.

Playing Tales of Symphonia HD. Ah nostalgic memories. I have to say though that getting a platinum on this is going to suck. x_x
673  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: June 09, 2014, 07:13:53 AM
Platinumed Ys: Memories of Celcata yesterday. Game was enjoyable. Not sure what I'm going to play next. Might do Tales of Symphonia, but I am kind of dreading getting the Platinum in that one...

We're slowly creeping towards TWO entire volumes of Magi not featuring any of its main cast.
That just doesn't seem like a good idea at all.
We are almost over with it, and it is still 1000x better than the year of Sasuke or the Fullbringer arc, so it could have been worse. And besides, Aladdin has been in the past few chapters technically. :p

I wanna know what happens.

Brotherhood it is.
It's the only one with a real ending.

The original totally had an ending. I mean, they were probably hard pressed to top Conquerer of Shambala in terms of stupidity (plus there was hardly anybody left after that piece of shit).

But really, I'd recommend the manga myself. Brotherhood abridges way too much of the beginning (which, depending on whom you ask, is the best part of the series since it hadn't gone full on fighting yet; even though there was a lot of fighting going on overall), and 2003-4 went in a completely different direction that ended in a weird, somewhat goofy, and entirely overwrought/melodramatic way. Besides, even if you watch both the Good Half of the Original and the Better Half of Brotherhood, you'd still miss out on some material in between.
I'll second the manga, but if Dice really wants to watch only one she should go with Brotherhood.

Watched through all of the Godzilla movies I own over the weekend. Always fun to watch the King of Monsters wreck some havoc.
