Yeah, ability to die and get a game over after final bosses = one of the worst ideas ever.

There was also an Obvious Beta part of Arc the Lad II where character sprites in a town are invisible after beating the nearby dungeon.

...so I guess it's safe to say that none of us will be buying Matrix's Lascivious Labyrinth: Big Boobies game then. 

As for Working Designs, my big issue with their text localizations were the pop culture references.  They always killed any immersion I had being in a fantasy world and would feel totally dated were I to replay it later on in life.  And I agree that some of their gameplay tweaks were terrible.  Silhouette Mirage would have been a totally fun game had they kept the original Japanese play mechanics and balance as is and not thrown a monkey wrench into its works for the US version, making it an absolute kick in the nuts to play.

Yeah, topical references definitely tend to date videogames, the same going for TV shows.

Would that be Velvet in Tales of Berseria?  She was the bustiest of all the ladies in the game.

Velvet, Milla, Sheena, Tear, Grune, Judith etc. There's usually always someone.

Mint, Mary, ...., Rutee, Sheena, Hilda, Grune (despite Chole being not-a-slouch in that department, probably the only game in the series with multiple Boobs), Tear, Judith, ...., Ange, Raine (because Sheena didn't come back), Judith, Innes, Pascal, Milla, Milla again, Lailah and Velvet.

I think that's all of them. Eternia and the first DS game are pretty bereft of cleavage, but the rest seem to stack up (though Symphonia 2 falls pretty flat as well).
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

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.

I just think in anime also. I am not saying EVERY game or anime with fan service makes it crap. Once in a while you get some i just think it devalues it so much just to try and get an audience. I just think it so is not needed. If its for dlc, or just for fun like a hotspring scene bath scene thats ok. Just i dunno i just want a great story : D

You know, I don't mind seeing boobs or other trashy sex'd up stuff as long as the game itself is actually good (see also: Soul Calibur series). What I don't care for are games where the T&A is the only thing it offers (and/or is even disingenuous about that).
