Did you seriously just copypaste an entire fucking Wikipedia article.

Or, optimistically, WROTE those wikipedia articles.



EDIT:  Doing some Wiki CTRL+Effing, you're pretty much right


Carry on OP!  Despite the copy/pasta, it's a great way to bring up an old and excellent-ish series!

It's obvious they put more effort into this one. Now we just need to see if they made a good game or not.

Absolutely it does look like they have. As much as I hate to say it though..effort alone does not a good game make.

I loved Origins and really disliked 2 so I want Inquisition to be great. The fact that I can play as a Qunari is a step in the right direction.

You know, I was thinking of making a thread about the Mana series.

Except I was gonna call it: "Final Fantasy Adventure: The Only Good Mana Game?"

I need to try Legend of Mana first before I do that, though I've not heard good things...

Its all a matter of personal taste of course but in general I enjoyed each game up until Children of mana, and despite various issues I have with Dawn there are a few things I felt that it did well.

To my knowledge Adventure, Secret, Secret 2, and Legend are all mostly regarded as atleast good games. After that you get a fairly large range of opinions on the rest of the games in the series.

One of the things that I really lived about legend of mana in particular is how non-linear it was (especially for its time) you can play the game from start to finish however you choose due to the way the artifact system works. Combine that with a fairly nice variety in setting up your character, the fantastic art direction, and great music all mixed to make a game that I always really enjoyed.

There are people who enjoy a more structured "go here, do this" approach though so it's certainly nor for everyone, but how many games can really claim that?

I might be in the minority but I loved its short story approach as opposed to the long form novel approach of most JRPG stories.

I say give it a try.

Also, kudos to the OP for a nice thread!

Holy shit this has been a great run of episodes.

I thought Flatline looked terrible from last week's preview and it might be my favourite episode of the new season.

I can't believe how good this season, and Capaldi, are.

No no 1000 times no.  Exactly like I said with 47 Ronin and Keanu Reeves (or like how that shitty Tom Cruise movie Edge of Tomorrow ruined all you need is kill) attaching an A lister usually ends up warping brilliant source material to suit the actor, instead of finding an actor to suit the role. No good.

I agree that they should have used someone other than Tom Cruise, but Edge of Tomorrow was a surprisingly good adaptation overall.

As for GITS, I can't stand Scarlett, so I'm not particularly enthused about this. Though I don't like Tom Cruise either and I liked Edge of Tomorrow.

Indeed!

Eh.  Taste being what it is, I think it's simply easier to speak for a lot of people by saying they "lost their magic" as they went on.  Specifically the last few, those were between "kinda" to "really tough".

XenoBlade - More Valak Mountain stuff.  Still enjoying this game.  Still doing do much sidequest content, which is overwhelming in breadth and depth.  If this game continues being good to the end, it'll be my favorite Wii game, period. 


Besides how gorgeous the nighttime is, I hate Mount Valek.  Some dickishly strong enemies, areas that are tricky to get to, and just a generally annoying layout.... BAH, annoying place.

That said, while the next few fields are a bit of a pain in the ass, you've really seen nothing yet.  So long as there's no peculiarly random hangups or specific elements you hate for some reason , I really think the places and series of events coming up will indeed secure this as your favourite Wii title if it's already "one its way there".

Kudos to you for being thorough sir. Ironically Mana has been a topic over in the game journal as well. Maybe this all means something????

Either way Aesir, nice to see the Mana love buddy. Flawed as the series is in damn near every installment, the magic of it all cannot easily be denied. I count the franchise amongst my favorites.
