Finally getting some time to play FFX HD on the Vita...I haven't played FFX since it came out on the PS2 so I've forgotten quite a bit, but about 7 hours in, something tells me Operation Mi'hen is a bad idea...

Was hoping there would be an announcement for FFXII HD, but I guess one remake per conference is enough. Still hoping that gets made sometime soon.

Turns out we still get the PC version for PS4 this winter...as well as an iOS port by the end of summer.

Welp, I am 13 all over again.

I need to talk to my wife about getting a PS4. I can only imagine the trophies for this game....

I only hope the battle system doesn't change, but stays some form of ATB or something...I would take a modified FF XIII system in this game in a heartbeat where you can control all three characters.

Also excited for World Of Final Fantasy for Vita, that looks pretty fun.

Now just waiting for my FFXII HD IZJS for Vita...!

1.) Brandish - The Dark Revenant
2.) The Legend of Zelda -  A Link Between Worlds
3.) Danganronpa - Trigger Happy Havoc
4.) Muramasa Rebirth
5.) Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments
6.) Ar Nosurge - Ode to an Unborn Star
7.) The Legend of Heroes - Trails in the Sky
8.) Demon Gaze

Just beat Demon Gaze, took a little bit of grinding, and a lot of careful turn management for the final fight but I finally beat it. Just a few trophies short of the platinum, but I'm not sure I want to go back and run through the gauntlet, and grind for the two random drops. It's probably another 15-20 hours of play, but I want to move on from this now. I was pretty hyped for Tokyo Abyss, but I think DG has taken out the dungeon crawling out of me for a while.

Since the retro pod cast is playing FFX, I may just move on to that since I've halted Cold Steel as it is going to be localized into English.

All of this news is fantastic!  They 100% have my money for TITS 2nd Chapter and Cold Steel 1, and will have my money for Cold Steel 2 if I enjoy the first one well enough (a strong possibility).  

And hell, I know this is optimistic, but there's a chance that 2016 gives us Cold Steel 2, Tokyo Xanadu, AND Ys 8 all in English in the same year!  That's insane!  I hope it happens!  It probably won't but don't bring me down just yet!  (Tokyo Xanadu comes out this September in Japan, and Ys 8 has an unspecified 2015 Japanese release date that may yet get pushed back)

2nd half of 2015, and 2016 are looking like absolutely great years for JRPGs, and potentially the Vita as well. Legacy my ass. I get JRPGs are niche, but the amount of support it is getting is just fantastic.

For those that thought TiTs battles took too long, you can skip the more lengthy animations such as S-Craft/Arts casting in CS.

Some further information shed on CS I/II and other titles in the series:

http://xseedgames.tumblr.com/post/120804314195/the-legend-of-heroes-trails-series-localization

Some highlights:

Zero/Ao PC ports possible in the future, as Japanese/Chinese versions exist.
CS can be played out of order with respect to Zero/Ao as that possibility was designed into the creation of CS.
CS I translation started 1.5 years ago, and is now complete (!)
They are currently recording 10,000 lines of VA
CS II is currently being translated.
Physical versions confirmed for CS I for Vita/PS3.

Great stuff.

The Korean Vita version had a full colour manual included in CS I, I wonder whether we will get that in the West?
10  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Legend of Heroes: Sen no Kiseki on: June 05, 2015, 02:19:35 PM
Hm. Don't get me wrong, I'm excited to get more Trails as anyone else, but 1) looking at how long it took for SC to even get close to release, we probably won't see Cold Steel for a loooooooooooooooooong time, and 2) I'm kind of disappointed that they'll be skipping out on Zero, Ao, and possibly even The Third just to get to Cold Steel. Yes, I understand that just skipping them is probably the only way to come even close to keeping up with the series, but I'm concerned we might be missing out on important story-stuff if they just skip them, and I'm not sure if Cold Steel is as standalone as XSeed says it is.

But hey, at the end of the day, we're still getting more Trails, and SC should be out in just a few months. For now, I'm not really complaining.

According to the Siliconera link, Cold Steel is due out this fall. Cold Steel II won't be for a while though I'd imagine.

Apparently we're getting it in the west for sure! PS3/Vita Guess... that means my Korean version will sit....gah.

Tactics Ogre: LUCT - so much crafting

It's getting to be a bit much.  Why don't I remember it taking this much time when I was a kid?

There wasn't any crafting in the original.

Though there was Training. Fuck Training.

I will take crafting over training any day of the week. The hours I spent as a teenager in training mode will never be gotten back.

After taking a month long hiatus from Demon Gaze (I feel the game really slows down around the Astro hunt) it's feeling fresh again. Looking to power through this now and take it off the list.

1.) Brandish - The Dark Revenant
2.) The Legend of Zelda -  A Link Between Worlds
3.) Danganronpa - Trigger Happy Havoc
4.) Muramasa Rebirth
5.) Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments
6.) Ar Nosurge - Ode to an Unborn Star
7.) The Legend of Heroes - Trails in the Sky

Just put the finishing touches on Trails, after two long years of constantly getting distracted. The retrocast was just what I needed for motivation to polish off the game! Dat ending though. It's really got me primed for SC...can't wait for whenever that is supposed to hit.

In the meantime, I will probably work on finishing Demon Gaze or make more headway into Sen No Kiseki.

wracking my brain to figure out what kind of job would allow someone to play a podcast at sound levels loud enough for others to hear "offensive" language, yet still employ people of the sort that would be offended by noises and syllables.

I am now fairly certain that ultra7k is a high school lunch lady.

maybe a failed lunch lady, but even still the point stands.  have free reign to play it in my office space, just wasn't expecting the language is all.

Just a couple points on the 1-2.

Enjoyed the podcast, as I had been looking forward to it all weekend. Really liking the music being incorporated into the podcast as well, as that adds a nice dimension and helps the listener to recall the scene you guys are talking about.

The first few minutes was an absolute gripe fest. I thought you guys were just going to blast the game all podcast long, which made me think, why am I even listening to this in the first place? It got better further into the pod cast though, so that's fine and you guys did bring up some of the issues with the game.

Also, language? I was listening to this at work, and was taken aback at some of the more... colourful expressions used in the cast. Typically podcasts from this site have been safe for work (language wise), an explicit tag would have been nice when uploading to iTunes.

The editing/production could have used a bit more work, or better environments as there was some pretty serious echo, and I could barely hear one of the other hosts (sorry don't know your voices just yet).

Keep up the good work!
