Gonna have to go with the hate train on this design. Why is this game even called Lufia if the only thing it's going to share is similar names? It doesn't even have the same playstyle.

The game might be fine, but there was no real reason to call it Lufia.

Made after over 9000 hours in MSPaint:

Just...wow.

I forget, when did "different" become synonymous with "good"?

The only point ShadowLaguna is made is how FPSs have all the same gameplay, it's more of a complaint of the general gameplay of FPSs rather than a complaint about the game itself. It'd be like if I complained that all JRPGs have levels and stats.

Even the game he says he likes, Goldeneye, didn't do a lot different than other FPSs that were out on the time (On the PC that is). The only real thing it did right was getting console FPS controls to be comfortable.

I have an eye condition in my right eye that makes it impossible to adjust to see clearly using any glasses/contacts. Thus, I can't watch 3D movies.

Fuck you Sony.

Eh, by fresh I mostly meant that anime stereotypes hadn't gotten to the point where it irritated me yet, because I really didn't watch that much anime back then other than Miyazaki and a couple kids shows. if you had already played a bunch of JRPGs/watched tons of anime by the time you got to Grandia a lot of it would've been cliche to you, definately.

But, even going back to play it today, I think it captures the spirit where anime cliches work.

I've never played Skies of Arcadia (That with no Grandia 2 should get a couple crowds ready to lynch me), so the only game I can think of off the top of my head that drew me into its world as much as Grandia was Phantasy Star Online.

I played Grandia at that age when the JRPG cliches were still rather fresh and interesting to me, as well as being that age when I thought going on a journey like Justin was to be the best thing that could ever happen. I think Grandia's a really endearing game because it doesn't take itself too seriously most of the time(Something a lot of JRPGs need to follow). It was one of those few "grand adventure stories" where I really got that feeling I was going on an adventure with the characters.

For the record, my favorite Studio Ghibli movie was/is Castle in the Sky, which Grandia had a lot of similarities with, which probably helped that whole connection for me. But what really gets that feeling from the game is the music. The music is incredible.

Oh yeah cool battle system helps too. Though, upon replays I find it pretty tedious to have to grind magic levels. The weapon levels arn't a big deal since you use physical attacks so much anyway, but magic is annoying because so much of it is worthless.

Also, I played the Sega Saturn version, so my first experience with it is probably different compared to most people around here. I didn't have the painful voice acting and Playstation load times.

I've actually never played Grandia 2, even though I've heard a lot of great things about it. I should get around to that sometime. I've heard some bad things about the third one, though.

Google is your friend.

And, not a huge fan of the redesign of Maxim, but it looks alright. Like others, would've preferred if they had a more high fantasy design. I get the feeling that top left corner shot has Guy in it- and he looks ridiculous.

Hm, I dunno about this. Personally, I was hoping for a sequel or something, but I guess a remake works too. I really have to ask though- why remake something that's nearly perfect?

I like that they're changing the gameplay, I suppose, instead of just giving us the same game with shiny graphics. I think the game looks pretty good so far- I don't think it would've made sense to make a bunch of SD characters like FF3DS since the Lufia games were all GRIMDARK anyway (Especially the second one). Then again, I guess you could say the same for FF4.

At any rate, I think it looks good. Just seems like typical playing-it-safe mode to me. I guess they're seeing how well this thing sells to see if Lufia's still a viable franchise.

Oh yeah, OG Gaiden, forgot about that one.

As far as fleshing out goes, Kusuha gets a lot of fleshing out in the Alpha series. In her boobs.

I believe there was a Lord of Elemental game for SNES. It's been a long time since I've played it, but I remember it being hard as hell.

I guess this is as good as any other place to ask: How are the Endless Frontier games?

i leik shitty shows

Yeah, it was one hell of a premise to get them stuck in the same place for 7 years just so they could have the same exact stories as TNG with crappier writing.

  i also started Deep Space Nine.  lol, seems silly so far

yeah man what the hell is with sisko, its so silly for a man to grieve over the loss of his wife at a young age and being doomed to being a single dad. fuck having actual human emotions in our stories lets have more stories where the captain morphs into a newt and the ship's best pilot dryhumps a shuttle. let's also have an episode where a character that makes jar jar binks look like morgan freeman nearly obliterate the ship with a hunk of cheese and then end the series with a gigantic plot hole while voyager gets armed with batmobile armor man we're stuck in the delta quandrant and we're so desperate that we have time to explore every over dust particle we come across we are totally struggling man

Part of me is wondering if they'll bother adding a rogue-like class at all. When you get down to it, there's only really 4 roles to fill in an MMO- a healer, a damage class, tank, and magic damage. There's lots of stuff in between, but with FFXI it became a huge clusterfuck and ended up with you needing to level one of the 6 or 7 of the 20 jobs to be accepted into linkshells and all that crap. With what they learned from FFXI, I'm hoping their goal is to get the balance right from the onset.

But, if the battle becomes more action based, stuff like moving faster, attacking from a distance and such might actually matter. Up to this point too many MMOs are too simplistic in battle to allow anything more than 4 or 5 classes before everything needed is filled up.
