I'm gonna plug my own YouTube gaming show here.

Turn Based Memories. It's a JRPG podcast with it's own unique format. I'm serious. It is nothing like any other podcast that exists. That is my sales pitch to you. The link goes to the episode about Final Fantasy 6. Thank you.

I'm not going to say it's a win, but it's certainly not a loss. I didn't see anything from a gameplay perspective that made it stand out, and there are already better ecchi games on the PS4 and certainly the PC. I'm sure people who were looking forward to it are going to be disappointed, and probably worried as to what kind of precedent this could set...but it could still work out in end. I mean, looking at Omega Labyrinth Z, it really doesn't look like it would've been cost effective for them to release it outside of Japan, and I certainly hope the lessons they learned will help them in the future.

Maybe next time they won't choose a game that isn't risque enough to be porn, but deals with subjects that rating boards really don't approve of? That's long and complicated enough that trying to change content that complies with their demands would require a ton of work, and probably just anger their niche fanbase anyways?

You know, silver lining and all that jazz....
No man, it IS a loss. It doesn't matter if it is good or not in your personal opinion. I would assume it was expected to be cost effective by the localization company, otherwise they wouldn't have localized it. Now they've done all that work and then had to cancel the game 3 months before release. So there's another loss. I don't think creative people who have an idea for something they want to make should have to say to themselves, "This deals with subjects that rating boards don't approve of, so I guess I just can't make it." I'm really not seeing the silver lining here. Is it that next time they'll self censor themselves enough so that they can get their game, which is no longer a true reflection of the vision they had, to be released in the western market?

Anyway, having criticized your point of view, I would very much like to hear what the better ecchi PS4 games are.

Yeah, Aeolus, it is indeed a sad day for The Legendary Zoltan. I can read Japanese just fine, so I could play it if I want, but I was hoping to play it in my native language anyway. I'll probably download the Japanese version at some point, but all this censorship of art from foreign countries is a massive bummer. I once heard a dude on YouTube say that Western gaming is dead because thanks to all the censorship and cries for forced diversity and all that, nobody is actually just making the game they want to make. And now I'm starting to agree. Thanks for trying to cheer me up with the hot springs RPG, though. ^_^

final fantasy 4 is great. Is it a little outdated yes but if you played it when it first came out like me you were like HOLY HELL. BEST game ever after you played it. For its time it was amazing does it hold the test of time like ff 6 no.

Yeah. I can definitely imagine that it was the greatest thing ever back when it came out. I started at FF6 though. I could probably really get into it if I were to play one of the newer versions. But if you agree that it has aged poorly, does it really count as a great game still?

I'm adding Baten Kaitos Origins to my completion list. It took me 92 hours to finish it. It was pretty good. I'm editing an hour-long review of it right now.

I agree with what was said on the podcast. Sometimes its ok but most of the time its just too much. It is horribly out of place just for fanservice. I dont think it makes ANY game better at all.

I think it depends on how good the story is. Of course the best RPGs and have great stories AND great gameplay, but sometimes you find a game that has a really bad story with great combat that actually pushes you through to the end of the game. In that kind of game, I think the boobs are just a bonus so they do make the game better.

Or maybe I should say they WOULD make the game better. I've actually never played a game with an excessive amount of fan service like this one. I'm still gonna check out Omega Labyrinth Z because I haven't played any of Matrix Software's games after Alundra, so I haven't been let down by them yet. We'll see how this one is.

There is a new game coming out called Omega Labyrinth Z. Aside from the main character having BOOBS THAT GROW ALL THE WAY UP TO A Z-CUP(!), the really interesting thing about this game is that it's being developed by Matrix Software. This is a company who has made exactly 4 games (that matter). Alundra, Torneko: The Last Hope, Alundra 2, and Dual Hearts. That first game, Alundra, is one of the greatest games ever made. It's not an RPG, though. Perhaps the other three games are pretty good as well, but I can't expect any of them to hold a candle to Alundra. Their last game, Dual Hearts came out SIXTEEN years ago. I'm very excited that Matrix Software is coming back after all this time with a major console game. I hope it's fun.

Any of you guys hear about this game or play any of Matrix's old games?

The god-damn CAMERA! Cameras do not need to be auto-correcting themselves to look behind you would be a start. But a much better solution is just to program the camera angles into the game. You'll get way more interesting angles than you can with a free camera and the background won't be ALL BLURRY FROM CAONSTANTLY SPINNING AROUND THE CHARACTER EVERY TIME YOU TURN A CORNER!

That and an overabundance of treasure chests. Seriously, nearly every game that exists could make treasure chests great again by simply reducing the number by about 90%. Maybe then, they'd actually consider putting treasure inside that makes the player happy they found it.

Well, I'M gonna condescend to both of you guys! If you like Final Fantasy IV, you are objectively a worse person than I am. Hahaha. Just kidding. Of course it's all opinions. I'm a gameplay first story second kind of guy despite my favorite genre of game being JRPGs. I haven't played much of 5 but I get the feeling that if you've played 6, you just don't need to go back to 4 or 5. The Playstation FFs, on the other hand all feel different enough to play all of them.

Vesperia definitely had good characters and story. One of the best in RPGs in general.

Thank you for not spoiling it here. I don't think I know what thing you're talking about and I would like to be surprised when it happens.


Original SNES version?

Yeah. I can understand why people like the story, music, maybe even the graphics. . . And maybe even the dungeon design. But the overall gameplay system feels really bad to me so I couldn't get into it. And the translation was a serious detriment. I know there are better versions, but the original one is the one that everybody said was amazing as soon as it came out, so that was the one that I played.

It's Dragon Quest XI yo! But I already know that it's great because I've been playing the Japanese version. That game is VERY hard up to beat Dragon Quest VIII, but so far it has not disappointed and it could be a contender. I'll judge it once I've finished the game and then I'll rejudge it when it comes out in English, which will likely be the superior version. GOD I hope they orchestrate the soundtrack because keyboards really drag down the experience of Kouichi Sugiyama's classical style.

Oh, sweet. I gotta get in on some of this action. Excluding previously beaten games...

1. Final Fantasy IV (kinda sucks)
2. Shadow Hearts: Covenant (kinda amazing)

I've also beaten Dragon Quest I SNES version and Star Ocean 4: The Last Hope and I'm SO CLOSE to finishing up a years-in-the-making platinum trophy for that game. It's an 800-hour platinum yo!
