Downloaded it now, gave it it try. Pretty good. I like the iterface and it's a nice text game to pass time at work.

Ban the witch!

In all seriousness, I'll be pretty happy and interested to see how Square Enix could handle a Chrono game these time and age.

Do they still have demos of their games?
Yeah, there's a demo. You can download it in it's store page on Steam.

I just bought the game and played for like an hour. Fun game.

Great news. This game should be played by, like, everyone.

We are already discussing it here:

Woops. Sorry. I didn't know we can discuss about new consoles in the General Discussion. I was sure the thread is supposed to be here.

Apparently it's gonna be released at 2012.
I could say that was fast, but I always forget that the Wii was released in 2006. Almost 5 years ago.
And it's gonna be capable of displaying HD graphic.

One of the guys there left a comment about the small Japanese companies that don't really have enough budget for releasing games in HD and now that every console has gone to be pretty powerful, what's really gonna happen to them? I hope that doesn't mean the end of niche titles.

I've found the tech demo to be a bit too brown. I'm still impressed though. tri-Ace is finally catching up and for a fair small company it's pretty amazing stuff.
The woman is hot.

I watched the new trailer from TGS and it looks fun. I'm curious to see how the storyline will go since, well, it is Kojima. I'm hoping for a PC release, as well, so that I'll be able to check it out myself.

Because no matter how good it is, it will never be as good as a fully fledged flagship Capcom title for the major consoles.

Stop being such a whore and just be happy they're releasing another title in the series instead of letting it wither and die.

Is the new Tales game for the PS3 is being developed by Team Symphonia or Team Destiny?
And I feel bad for not having any current-gen home console. I really wish to get both PS3 and X360. So. Much. Games. I. Want.
11  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Radiant Historia on: July 28, 2010, 11:28:02 AM
I know some of you (and me, as well) really liked Radiata Stories.
It's not really a sequel, but a lot of the staff that worked on Radiata Stories working on this one. I guess it's going to be some sort of a "spiritual successor" to the game, thus, the name.


In this week's issue of Famitsu magazine, Atlus took the veils off Radiant Historia, a brand-new traditional RPG for the Nintendo DS. The title is due out November 4 in Japan for 6279 yen.

Although it has nothing to do with Square Enix and tri-Ace's Radiata Stories, Historia does have some of that 2005 RPG's staff holding the development reins, including designer Satoshi Takayashiki and character/art designer Hiroshi Konishi. Mitsuru Hirano, who was involved with the Shin Megami Tensei Nocturne games, is handling director duties, and industry mainstay Yoko Shimomura is scoring the game's music.

Radiant Historia is set in Vancule, a land that's rapidly becoming dry, barren, and desert-like. You play Stok, a spy for the nation of Aristel, and you begin with a mission to infiltrate the neighboring country Granorg (which Aristel is at war with) and rescue a fellow agent. Stok is captured and wounded in Granorg, but somehow the process gives him the power to travel through time and across two parallel worlds that are connected to each other. Thus, the brunt of the game is spent hopping between past and future, correcting mistakes made long ago and attempting to bring peace and environmental stability back to Vancule.

"This game is a collection of stories based around the concept of time travel," designer Takayashiki told Famitsu. "When you look at something from a different point of view, everything can seem completely different. In this way the hero learns that his bitterest of enemies was just doing what he had to, among other things, and every cast member has a deep background to back up that storytelling. You aren't an impartial observer, either -- the player's actions have the power to dramatically change history. We're devoting just as much care to the boundless amount of side stories as we are to the main plot, so I hope you take the time to seek them all out."

Gameplay details are still a bit skimpy, but apparently Historia's battle system is turn-based and places enemies on a 3x3 grid, with monsters occupying front and rear positions and creatures up front more susceptible to damage than those in the rear. Turn order is also decided for the entire battle at the very beginning, and you'll be able to execute combo moves when two player-characters have consecutive turns.

No US release has been announced for Historia yet.

Who else is excited? I can't wait to try it out and hear the soundtrack. I love Yoko Shimomura.
I sure hope Atlus will localize it.

I haven't played the first one, but I really like the music in the video.
And I'm don't like Cole's new design, either. He does look like those douchebags you meet at the beach.

I'm planning on getting it eventually.
I really enjoyed Dragon Quest VIII, and from what I read in 1Up's review, I'm sure I'm going to enjoy this one, as well. With or without the multi-player.

Currently I'm reading The Dark Tower V: Wolves of the Calla.

I just started, and for now it's seems fine to me.
Not as good as Wizard and Glass, but still fine.
