Blade Runner - Director's Cut....for the first time in ages.

Five is good but, honestly, is kind of a watered down version of Suiko 2.

Suiko 2 is my favourite RPG ever - flat out.

This series, in general, is my favourite RPG series.

I wish they had continued from Suiko 3 instead of making Suiko 4 a prequel though.

Suiko 3 seems to get a bit of a bad rap, and I don't understand why.

Don't really like Tales games. I find them too generic.

On the flipside, some of the Megaten games such as Nocturne, Digital Devil Saga, and the more recent Devil Summoner games are fun as well.

Played them all!

So I decided to go against general advice and play Xenosaga 2.

I'm curious about just what it is that people don't like about it?

I'm not very far in - but I like Chaos' new voice.

And Jin is cool.

But damn, the battle music sucks ass.
5571  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Dragon Quest remakes more or less confirmed on: May 28, 2007, 08:46:40 AM
I don't buy that.

During the PS1 era we were getting sure fire *new* games as well as risks and it seemed like they were churning out a new game every six months or so. And 80-90% of them were good!

Now, we're lucky if we get 3 new games per gen .... and happy if one of them doesn't have the name Final Fantasy on it.

The amount of port and remakes has gone up *significantly* - and needlessly.

They're one of the few bands that actually got better as they progressed.

Going from stuff like Twist and Shout - which is crap, to stuff like Abbey Road - which is one of my favourite albums of all time.

If you haven't heard it, give it a listen. Great album.

Then don't buy the remakes, buy the new entries. Regardless of the number of remakes, there are still tons of new games to play, enough that it'll give you such a huge backlog that you won't even need to once consider a remake.

That's my whole point. If it were at least 50/50, I probably wouldn't be complaining as much - but the ratio of remakes to the ratio of new games coming out from Squeenix is something like.....80/20 righ tnow.

It's ridiculous.

That's all I have to say really.

Mod's note: Useless, pointless waste of time and space.  Go be drunk on some other forum or in a LiveJournal.

So basically, you're being angry that they are making a pointless entry of a pointless medium. You might as well be angry that they keep teaching you biology-related courses in medical school.

Seems sort of silly, don't you think?

I can see where you're coming from...but I tend to think of RPGs like books. An RPG with a good story is like a book with a good story. I can appreciate it - but it's not one I necessarily want to experience/read again right away.

Once I'm finished a series, or a book. I prefer to move onto new ones. Not read/play the same ones over and over again.

Something that's new is never pointless. That's the difference between a new game and a remake.

I don't completely agree about licensed soundtracks. I quite like the Wipeout series soundtracks, and Need for Speed High Stakes on PS1 has one of the best licensed soundtracks ever.

No, I'm a sensible one.

People tend to think they are, yes. Whether they really are or not is something else altogether though!

And what's with this 'useless' talk? They're video games, you could cut this down until only simulations for work/military and Brain Age matter, and possibly a few other exceptions for cheering up kids while they're in a hospital or whatever. I'd also counter that SO2's hard to find and is pricey, but that doesn't appear to be the case at all like it was for VP. If they redub it though, you could say that alone makes it a must have. THAT'S ABOUT FIFTY POINTS! Also, yes, I did mean Romancing SaGa there.

Well - I didn't say useless - I said pointess. And I stand by that. Why is it pointless? The game's been done. Finished. Completed.

The problem is that Square is focusing more on remakes and nostalgia and trotting out old glories than they are about focusing on developing new games.

Even a new sequel would be better than another fucking Final Fantasy port/remake at this stage.

But Parasite Eve 3 on a cell phone?  That's just a kick in the balls to fans.

Pirates 3....best one in the series.  There was never a dull moment.

Are you kidding me?!

After Jack's rescue, there was about an hour that was utterly pointless running around.

Chow Yun Fat was completely wasted in this movie.

Pointless, pointless port from last gen.

Lard's an extreme example, most everyone else, at worst, finds it worrisome.

No, I'm a sensible one.

Quote from: "Eusis"
Personally, I do think it's getting to the point with SE that, yes, we're really going to be getting remakes at the exclusion of anything new. But they're probably just rushing this out like they have thanks to the 20th anniversary of FF, so I'm hoping we see fewer of these and the endless spinoffs in a year or two.

Problem is, I don't think that's going to happen. I get the feeling that Squeenix is, at this point, content to rest on their laurels, just the same as Nintendo has been doing for the last few years.

Quote from: "Eusis"
Lard: I don't see why it's improbable. We never got RSG before, but we got it's remake one and half to two years ago, and we finally got FFIII thanks to being remade. Heck, they could keep this up and keep giving us an old game we never got before once a year... Though I think we would've seen the DQ remakes by now if that was the case.

RSG? I'm confused - Romancing Saga....something?

There's a *huge* difference between releasing games like Final Fantasy 3 and the first Star Ocean, which never saw an official English release and remakes of Final Fantasy 4, Resident Evil and Wild Arms, all of which have been released in English before - and in the case of Final Fantasy 4, *three times* before this new remake.

Would I be happy with remakes of games that hadn't been released in North America before? Moderately - because it's still taking away from new ideas. I am happy that I get to play Star Ocean 1 - but the Star Ocean 2 remake is fucking pointless at this stage.
