Personally, I liked the original ending that implied the mass relays were destroyed. It gave the ending a bittersweet feeling. But of course, a depressing ending upset the fan base too much. Meh.

As for the Star-child, it was like Deus Ex endings. Press a button and get an ambiguous ending. Doesn't bug me much in Deus Ex and didn't bug me much with Mass Effect. I feel the journey of a game is more important than the ending and I didn't even think the ending was bad.

Clearly, most fans don't agree with me so I'll go sit in the corner alone.

Ask, and ye shall receive. Lamia piloting Gespenst Phantom:


All of Granteed Dracodeus attacks (the last one is rather long lol):


A treat for everyone whos played SRW J and waited a decade to see this in an OG game (Al-van kicking ass - Yes, he joins the team):


SRW J final boss in MD (Duh, of course):

18  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: super robot wars topic on: June 30, 2016, 02:20:02 AM
Thats not even the most over the top attack in the game. LOL But if you love Gespents (and you should), this game will be great for you.

Also, edit to post above. MD has 47 missions and the first route split is 9 missions long.

The game releasing Friday is an OG game so there are no mechs from animes in it. SRW V won't be released till next year.

Licensing issues prevent them from releasing SRW outside of the Asian market but the English sub version will be Asian Market only so its a none issue. Macross was likely dropped because Macross Frontier has been done to death already and they aren't ready to move on to Macross Delta (the shows not done airing yet). Also, SRW V has a lot of classic mecha like Chars Counterattack and Zeta, I feel like this is on purpose to celebrate the anniversary with some returning classic shows.

Because of those licensing issues, we are never going to see an English localization for western markets but thankfully Asian markets have become profitable enough for them to release english subs. Thank Asian mecha fans for that.

So the Japanese version comes out this Friday and, of course, some people got the game early.

Calvina Theme (Revenger):


All of Granteed's attacks (That last ones a little bit of overkill lol)


All of Bellzelute Brigandi's attacks:


Note: this guy is uploading the attacks of a lot of mechs in the game. Check out the updated visuals for your favorite mechs and drool.


Apparently 47 missions in total (not counting the replay value of split routes). After the first prologue mission, you get a 9 missions long route split between Touya and Calvina. So worry not, White Lynx fans, best girl is getting plenty of love. Coincidently, the first mission of her route is titled "White Lynx".

13 mins of Calvina's route's gameplay. Quick, someone translate this NOW! lol

Note: the Japanese release date is next friday.

I love Bellzelute, the more flashy updated attacks look awesome. Excuse me, I'm having a fanboy moment seeing all the attacks from SRW J updated. O.O I'm just happy to see Bellz has the same attacks for its game. They go through each attack just to make sure you know they are all there. Of interesting note is that spirits of the pilots don't seem the same. Tenia (the red head) didn't have accel in SRW J. I'll be interested in seeing what the powerbuff girls' spirit groups are.

So happy we got a little sneak peak at Calvina's Route. Totally going to pick her route split, just like I pick her in SRW J. Her theme songs are awesome and its nice to here the update versions of the songs.

Another small note: In SRW J Toya's first mission was on earth while the first mission of Calvina's route is in space. It seems they are sticking to that in the game as well.

I think it looks cool I can't get over the similarities to Ecclesia though (appearance of main protagonist, etc)

Thats totally not a bad thing in my eyes. I loved Ecclesia and clearly this game is not moving far from that formula. I just hope this game ends up longer than Ecclesia becuase the only real negative that I have for that game is that it was a bit too short.
23  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bloodstained Ritual of the Night on: June 23, 2016, 04:01:38 PM
Sprite art is harder to make than 3D models which is why its a dieing art. Game companies are not going to use a method that inefficient. Time equals money after all, and great sprite art just takes longer and more effort to make.

I'm also a big fan of Order of Ecclesia so I'm excited. The demo looks like a starting area so I imagine its just as easy as any starting area in a castlevania game. We won't be able to judge the difficulty till the game comes out.

I enjoyed the first two Mass Effect games and played them quite a bit.  Mass Effect 3 doesn't still engender the hatred that it did.  I think it's less that I've gotten over the ending and more that I've forgotten about this series very quickly.  I had a talk with an RPGFan editor about Mass Effect the other day over Twitter...or tried to, because I couldn't remember the name of whatever alien race Garrus is, whatever alien race Mordin is, and whatever alien race Wrex is.

I don't think these games are gonna be ones that stick with me over the decades, man.

Heresy, I could rant about the lore of game but then again I am super nerd like that. To be fair, I'm sure I've replayed mass effect games far more than you. lol Ah, well. Just not your type of game.

I'll agree with the OP that Mass Effect 3 has a lot of tension and builded up to an ending that people couldn't accept for various reasons. But for the most part, its overblown and ME 3 got a bad rap for no good reason. Its still probably my favorite in the series. It definitely has the best combat in the series and some of the best storylines such as Tuchanka and Rannoch.

For me, personally, I really enjoyed the mass effect series. I'll remember it and replay it again some time in the future no doubt. (Will probably replay at least ME 3 when the release date for the new ME game comes closer).

You know, I don't see Might no 9 as a bad game. It actually looks pretty fun but then again, I've never been a mega man fan.

Castlevania on the other hand is certainly something I enjoy. Bloodstainted seems heavily inspired by aria/dawn of sorrow, such as abilities dropping from enemy kills. Right down to some of the enemies looking the same, such as the lion wheel enemy. The demo looks awesome and I'm quite excited about this game. If konami doesn't want my money then I'll gladly give it to this game.

Say what you will, but Basch, Balthier, Ashe, and Fran are all some of the best FF characters ever.  Even Penelo made my heart all warm and fuzzy and she was relegated to bystander status for no good reason.  XII is 10/10 in the Character department.
Are they that good?

I think so.  They eschew the basic archetypes, have complex motivations and intriguing backstories, and are very well-performed by their VAs.  Not only that, but their designs are striking and memorable without resorting to over the top Japanese style tropes.  They're very distinct among JRPG characters, by a long shot, and even stand out among FF characters.

FF12 had some great characters...and then there's Van.

If continue with the Star Wars analogy (with which there are a ton of parallels in FF12) then Van is basically Luke minus the whole force thing, any relationship to Darth Vader, or any relationship to the story at all, really.  He's just a kid who wanted to pick up some power converters and then somehow started following around the important people.

But I can't say Penelo was much better.  Her only reason for even being there was basically Van, making her twice-removed from the actual story.  Though I suppose if you just take Van's existence in the party as a given then her motivations made more sense at least.

Vaan and Penelo are basically the party's C3P0 and R2D2 to the rest of the casts' obvious Star Wars expies. The bigger question is which one is which?

Considering Penelo is adorable and cute and lovable and Vaan is whiny and annoying, I think the answer is of which one is which should be obvious.

Hahahaha, perfect. I feel like Vaan only served as the introduction to the world and the main character switched once you met other characters. The game doesn't feel like its trying to force Vaan to be a main characters, hes just there. Poor  Penelo needs better tastes in men.

My favorite was Balthier but it might be because I'd want to be him. lol

Ok, having looked up the series.......maybe thats not worth watching. lol. How did that make into SRW. lol Well, I suppose the mecha looks really cool.
28  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: super robot wars topic on: June 08, 2016, 03:57:57 PM
Oh, its going to be BAD. But I'm gong to do it.........maybe. lol
29  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: super robot wars topic on: June 08, 2016, 03:12:05 PM
I sure hope it takes place in space. Space missions are always my favorite. I need to watch Cross Ange if only because its in SRW V. lol
30  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: super robot wars topic on: June 07, 2016, 02:31:17 PM
