I'd like to see a big budget adaptation of the Amber series by Roger Zelazny. In the right hands, it would be *awesome*.

Don't think this qualifies an RPG....though the closest comparison I can think of is Shenmue, and people seem to classify that as one.

I picked this up last week fairly cheap, since it's the only high profile title from Sega I've been interested in a while, and it was nice to see them not doing a terrible Sonic game.

I partly picked this up on the assumption that it was going to be *sort of* an adventure game...and the fact we're never getting Shenmue 3, so this was kind of a surrogate.

I tried the tutorial, which was, but did seem like it could get repetitive.

Just wondering how far off my assumptions are.

Naw, Lard, i think you're an elitist fuck that doesnt want younger audiences to be able to play a game with todays technology when they might have been a fucking fetus when it was initially released.

Get off your high horse, you're starting to sound dumb.


That's the stupidest thing ever posted on these boards.
God forbid someone have a differing opinion other than "REMAKES ARE TEH SHIZNIT!"

Quote from: "MeshGearFox"
1) Lunar 1 and 2 were far, far more remake than port.


In what respects? Grandia especially, seemed a straight port.

Quote from: "MeshGearFox"
2) FFIV's gameplay hasn't really aged well.


That's subjective.

Quote from: "MeshGearFox"
3) If Square made something new and innovative, everyone would bitch about them not staying true to their roots or something retarded like that.


Like when Kingdom Hearts came out?

I actually picked this up partly because I'd heard a few comparisons to Shenmue and partly because of the reaction to the sequel announcement on this board. People seemed genuinely excited, so I thought I'd check out the first one.

b) It's not pointless. Were remakes pointless we wouldn't have excellent remade experiences like Lunar:SSSC or Shining Force: RoDD. Think of it as an upgrade if you must, but you have got to get out of this childish mentality that equates remakes as a waste of time.


I believe Lunar 1&2 were both ports, as was Grandia. Not remakes.

Quote from: "Hidoshi"
I don't see how you get off acting this spoiled and stupid, but if you're content with that, do it silently and leave the rest of us with our happiness.


If wanting something new and original is acting spoiled, *especially* on a system that said it was going to innovate gaming, then fine, I'm "spoiled".

Enjoy paying for the same game for the ..... sixth time now?

Do we really need a remake just for the novelty of hearing Cecil with a squeaky teenage voice?No.
If someone can't get past the graphics, fuck 'em. Let them miss out.
Don't waste time, money and resources just because someone is a graphics whore.
I'd rather see something new with a riff on the battle system than endless, *pointless* remakes.

So yeah, color me impressed. This isn't just a remake, it's like a whole new game.


Then why call it FF IV?
That's exactly why remakes are pointless. It's just cashing in on nostalgia.
5198  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Persona 4 next year? on: December 21, 2007, 10:33:11 AM
I'm fine with it coming out on PS2, especially if it boils down to a choice of PS2 or not at all.

And yeah, FES would be nice...but I'm not betting on it.

Are you surprised?  It's a proven fact; no one reads the actual site, only Joystiq.


Jesus Christ. I apologised already.

And to be fair to the guy, I'd rather get a range of opinions from people who have played it than base a purchase on one review.

I picked this up recently too, but haven't played it yet.

Because my boomark takes me to the forums and skips the front page. Sorry.
5201  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Persona 4 next year? on: December 20, 2007, 12:31:10 AM
Joystiq is reporting Persona 4 to be released next year, possibly to tie into the upcoming anime. Also says it will be a PS2 release.

Entombed - Serpent Saints
Blue Oyster Cult - Spectres (Remastered)
EZ Rollers - Conductor

I Am Legend.

Not as bad as I expected, but what the hell was that ending?

Weak.

Lard,
what in god's name are you talking about?

1. Before the boss battle in Warcadia, you do NOT have to fight those guys. You can run clear past them. In fact, I would recommend you do that since...

2. They're not that hard. I cleared them out, and I think I only had to do the boss battle in Warcadia twice. Who are you on as now, Ellen or Keats? If Keats, make sure you have his big boost/rage energy ready to go for the boss. If Ellen ... well ... hope you're good with the guard button.


I was playing as Ellen when I was so frustrated. It's not that they're particularly hard, it's just irritating because you are constantly getting hit when there are more than two creatures on the screen and you're trying to capture one. It's inevitable.

Quote from: "Ramza"
My apologies that you're bad at this game. You should be taking the time to check the picture guide book, learn the elemental attributes of the monsters you're pulling out, and if that's too much for you, just check on gamefaqs real quick to see what it takes to clear the boss in Warcadia.

Ramza


I've cleared the boss. I'm not bad at the game. It's just that the game can be quite cheap if there are more than a couple of monsters on the screen.

Well, there was supposed to be news on SO4 at TGS, but we got squat.

X months later and we still have nothing.  I'm starting to think that the game is going to get a big CANCELLED soon.

I mean, Jesus, how long does it take to choose where a game is going?  It has very few choices of systems to play on...

wouldn't be surprised to see it on DS.
