While I remember it......Legend of Legaia wasn't the worst.......but it was pretty damn dull.

Thank god reason prevails.

From Kotaku.com

Under British law, copyright infringement cannot be brought against buildings and sculptures that are on permanent public display. Even if the church was copyrighted, it probably has expired as copyrights become null seventy years after the person who's created the work has died. What does this mean? Chapman continues:

...public buildings are generally fair game for inclusion in videogames, films et cetera, and it is something that their owners just have to accept.

Well, I've been mucking around with my PSP, and have solved the Suikoden handheld problem. Now I just need to figure out how to transfer memory saves.

An entire re-make wouldn't be necessary. PSP, maybe?

Already been done in Japan - Sony just won't bring it over.

Quote from: Leyviur
For once, I agree with Lard.


Quote from: "Leyviur"
One of the reasons I favor V over II is because of the 3D graphics giving the characters more expression of emotion on their faces, and the voice acting.

I still prefer Suiko II's story over V's. V's seems just a bit steeped in nostalgia for my taste.

Quote from: "Leyviur"
I'm sorry, but the notion of putting everything and anything on the DS just because you can is a retarded concept when it means downgrading a series' best qualities; in Suikoden's case, the immersive story of political intrigue and war.

Yup. Amazing....but I agree 100%.

Quote from: "Leyviur"
I'd rather pay $600 for a PS3 to play a Suikoden more like Suikoden V, where I feel more connected to the characters than to just pay $40 on a DS game that won't engage me as much.

Nothing will convince me to buy a PS3 more than Suiko VI on PS3....except the next SMT game.

Quote from: "Leyviur"
I wish Konami would remake the first two in 3D, though. It probably won't happen, but I'd all over something like that like white on rice. Unfortunately I have to stick to my PSP/PSX versions. Teh sad.

I'd be happy if they re-released the 2D versions in English. That's good enough. Unfortunately, they don't seem to want to - *that* is Teh Sad.

Metal Gear isn't going multi platform.

The idea that every game needs to go multiplatform is dumb.

No matter which platform it's on (except PS2), it's going to take time to build an engine for the game, because it's going to be a new platform.

As for the DS...fuck that. DQ has never been heavy on story/dialogue like Suikoden has been.

I want a full home console, play on my big TV with lots of great music/dialogue/political intrigue/rewards for memory card content release. The DS won't give me that.

Anyone else thinking that Konami MAY go ahead and toss Suikoden VI on the DS? I mean...they COULD go X360, but seriously? the rpg community there is pretty low, the PS3 would be like burning a pile of cash. The only other thought might be the Wii, but I just dont see that being a really smart move, since the Suikoden series is pretty niche.

The DS is pretty much the best RPG platform right now, and aside from still just saying fuck it...lets stick with the PS2....i think the DS'd be the most logical spot.

Fuck that. I want my memory card data transfer rewards thank you very much.

That's pretty much my feeling too.

I certainly *want* a strong story from a game like Xenosaga or Suikoden - and that's why I buy them.

Do I need cut scenes and a story like they have in the newer Need For Speed games?

Hell no. Make a good soundtrack, make the driving fun and I'm happy.

That said, Puzzle Quest is fun....but not because of the story.

You're so wrong Lard.

1) it's not a cash grab because there's no way in hell the church would win a law suit against SONY. Remember, it's free to threaten to sue, but it costs money to try to sue.

The Church of England is considering legal action against entertainment firm Sony for featuring Manchester Cathedral in a violent PlayStation video game.

Really? It looks to me like they're going to sue - or try and get a settlement. Cash Grab.

2) it's not a cash grab because what the people @ Manchester Cathedral really want is to not have the cathedral in games where there's violence. If you think there's some ulterior motive, than I think you've lost touch with reality.

But the Church said Sony did not ask for permission to use the cathedral and has demanded an apology and the removal of the game from shop shelves - otherwise it will consider legal action.

I'm sorry - *censorship* and a cash grab.

3) there are big differences between this instance, and say, using the NYC skyline or the "Escape From" movies. For one, the films you mentioned would have gotten permission (and even had PLENTY OF COOPERATION) from relevant government officials, etc. Apparently, Sony did not get permission from Manchester, so that's one difference. Next, I doubt Manchester officials are joking or exaggerating when they say that there has been gun violence in their community and it legitimately frightens them. Not that NYC or LA *doesn't* have gun violence, but it also happens that we here in America are big fans of glorifying it.

Look. A building is not copyright. I don't need permission to draw a picture of a church. If I paint a picture of a church, and sell it, I don't need the church's permission.

If I draw the same church being burned down by some fanatic Norwegian black metal fan, and sell it, I don't need the church's permission.

If I decide to make a horror game, put a church in which several young children eat somone and then hang themselves, sell it, I don't need the church's permission.

A building is not copyright. THe Church is simply trying to go for a cash grab and bully Sony because they think they can get away with it.

Yeah, the gameplay and soundtracks on Wipeout are great.

Photek? Check!

I feel like none of you have any tact in this situation. Imagine being the people who attend that Cathedral on a regular basis, and then discovering media like Resistance: Fall of Man exists and is readily available for your teens. It would shock you.

No. It's got nothing to do with "sensitive" people and how they'd react.

This is a simple cash grab on the part of the church.

The endless amounts of games featuring Germany as Nazi "bad guys" no doubt pisses them off.

Eusis' example of the cathedral in Franch in Eternal Darkness is an excellent point.

Next you're going to tell me that NY can sue Rockstar for using the NY city skyline.

How is this *any* different from movies like Escape From NY/LA or any disaster movie that features a real life location?

It's not.

This is a simple cash grab because video games are under attack from everywhere nowadays, and the church probably figures they can at least get as far as a settlement, with Sony paying them off, because they'll probably lose.

As for Sony - they *are* the good guy - because they didn't do anything wrong.

We have no taste in this situation?

You need to lighten up.

I like how they adeptly portray politics in the games. That was the only real let down of III for me, it didn't have much of a political atmosphere. it made up for it with the characterization of the villain though.

I thought they did fairly well with political stuff in Chris' story, never mind Thomas' - which was largely political.

If you haven't played Ys VI or Valkyrie Profile yet, you should definitely pick them up. I really enjoyed Ys, and you can drastically reduce the load times by playing it off the memory stick instead of the UMD.

Well, I played VP on the PS1 ages and ages ago, so I'm not in a rush to get to it yet, but I will eventually. Thanks though.

I probably will check out Ys at some point.

What I liked about III is that they tried a whole bunch of new things.

If you can get past the Lego people style walking of the characters, it's a great game.

Granted, the battle system is pretty broken, which is what makes it good - instead of great.

Six people in your party and you only control three? Ass.

Your fire spell harms....your party? Ass.

The game itself had a serious payoff for fans of the first two games, and they seemed to really try to push the boundaries of the past two games.

III gets alot of flack, but no way in hell is it worse than IV.

They're bitter because Sony didn't ask "permission" to use the cathedral.

I'm sure Germany can now turn around and sue every WWII FPS maker that exists today!

Let's clog the courts with useless lawsuits like this one!
