I finally found a copy of Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney in English. FUCK YOU Amazon.

Also picked up Ninja Gaiden Sigma.

It won't be in name, but they might as well call it Final Fantasy.

(Not that I'm saying there's anything wrong with that - nice to see him actually develop games again, instead of just supervising)

Finished Final Fantasy 9 and am starting my first game of Wild Arms (the original) in about 9 years.
5375  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Next Fatal Frame game on Wii on: September 27, 2007, 03:19:09 PM
I'm not saying it's not going to happen.

Control wise, I could see it working.

But Fatal Frame games are scary shit.

Killer 7 was good and freaky....but not scary.

I'm just imagining the ghosts breaking up into little pixels like in Killer 7, and I just don't see it working.

It's no more likely a combo than Bioware and a Sonic RPG.

I'll be prepared to eat crow if I'm wrong.

A prequel?

I saw Resident Evil Extinction.

Cheesy, cheesy crapness.

Though not as bad as Halloween.

With M titles for the WII dropping like flies:

Project Hammer - cancelled
Disaster Day of Crisis - Disappeared

I'll believe it when I see it.

I think Grasshopper *could* do a good job......but I still think it won't make it past development stage.

I really like Atlus' shtick of including a soundtrack. I wish more companies would do it.
5381  Media / Single-Player RPGs / So how would you rate TGS? on: September 25, 2007, 06:30:46 AM
Other than 3 Kingdom Hearts games, were there any big announcements?

Overall, pretty tame and uninspired TGS.

Quote from: "jj984jj"
the DS has an insane amount of RPGs coming out, especially in Japan this holiday.

What RPGs are coming to North America for the DS this Xmas?

It's still unnecessary.

So are games in general. Quit whining.

Why is it you have to insult everybody who has a different opinion than you?

I'd really like to know who wakes up and pisses in your Corn Flakes every morning.

Quote from: "Professor Gast"
They are still releasing an average of one or two titles per month in Japan (if you count cellphone-based releases the number is even higher).  

I don't, since I can't play them.

Quote from: "Professor Gast"
The thing is, for the current fiscal year they have decided to focus on handheld-based remakes and handheld-based sequels.

And that's exactly my complaint.

Quote from: "Professor Gast"
And then obviously, there is the standard criticism of them focusing too much on Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest and possibly Kingdom Hearts.

Which, at this point, is legitimate.

Quote from: "Professor Gast"
However, this is not a recent trend, but has been ongoing for a couple of years, as they try to keep their profitability as high as it has been during the last couple of fiscal years. If you look at their releases now, in terms of sales (not gameplay) there is far less hit and miss right now than during the PlayStation years.  

PS1 or PS2?

Quote from: "Professor Gast"
Square back then certainly had a much more varied and perhaps (arguably) more exciting line-up, but several high profile games apparently did not live up to the lofty expectations (Chrono Cross, Parasite Eve II), while other games (mostly non-RPG stuff) only sold a very limited amount of copies (Racing Lagoon, Chocobo Racing, Ehrgeiz, various sports games).  

Whose expectations didn't they live up to? That's certainly debatable, unless you're talking about sales. In that case, Chrono Cross certainly lived up to them.

My point is that, while I realise it's more expensive to produce games now, it certainly seemed that Squaresoft were willing to take risks. Now, it's gotten to the point of parody the number of times they've released the same games. I used to bitch about Ninendo doing it, but I think Squeenix has firmly and decisively taken that crown.
