6041  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Kingdom Hearts II Trailer out on: December 22, 2005, 09:32:09 AM
1Up has some impressions of the game here, as well as a video of the early part of the game.
6042  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / So I fired up Final Fantasy V last night... on: December 21, 2005, 11:45:31 PM
I was thinking of FF4 instead of FF5.  According to the FAQ, you do have to find the world map, and then press square to view it.
6043  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / So I fired up Final Fantasy V last night... on: December 21, 2005, 07:52:12 PM
Do you have to actually get it?  Try pushing B and Select at the same time.  That brings up the map in FF2 : Dawn of Souls, and I think it was available from the beginning of the game.
6044  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Console RPG challenge of sort on: December 20, 2005, 07:46:19 PM
The Shin Megami Tensei and Digital Devil Saga series have very original settings and story concepts.
6045  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / So I fired up Final Fantasy V last night... on: December 20, 2005, 05:13:07 AM
The character had an actual name, although you could probably change it (I think all the FFs through X allow this).  The fan translations called him Butz, which I think was accurate.  The PSOne version changed it to Bartz, presumably to stop people from snickering everytime they saw the name slywink
6046  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Any DQ8 impressions yet? on: December 19, 2005, 10:33:16 AM
Dragon Quest just has some sort of magic to it.  I recently played through both DQ1 and 3 for the GBA, and despite even simpler battle systems, archaic graphics, and little plot, they were great fun.
6047  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / MsDuncan, I kinda sorta owe you an apology, sorta on: December 19, 2005, 12:11:54 AM
"It's a Christmas miracle!!!!"
I think that, with the bizarreness of the situation, it's more of a Festivus miracle slywink
6048  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest 8 prequel announced on: December 18, 2005, 12:32:42 PM
According to IGN, it's going to be an installment of the Mysterious Dungeon series, similar to the PSOne's Torneko : The Last Hope.  Apparently, all portly characters in the series get to have their own games slywink  The article is here.
6049  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rumor Mill: Valkyrie Profile 2? on: December 17, 2005, 06:09:39 PM
I just have a list I visit regularly.  RPGamer seems to get news first, but sometimes AllRPG will have something first, as with these shots.  I also check RPGFan, and pretty much any new information on an RPG will be posted at the GameFAQs message board as soon as it becomes available.
6050  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rumor Mill: Valkyrie Profile 2? on: December 17, 2005, 09:16:31 AM
AllRPG has some new scans here, showing off some beautiful looking character graphics and a shot of the battle system, which looks a lot like the first game.
6051  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Knights of the Old Republic I or II? on: December 17, 2005, 09:00:44 AM
You'll never get more than 2 at a time in either game, but you'll eventually have many to choose from.  Everyone is awarded experience, whether they're in your current party or not.
6052  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Knights of the Old Republic I or II? on: December 17, 2005, 02:22:10 AM
They do explain some things, but KoTOR 2 pretty much assumes that you've played the first game.  You'll also ruin the plot twist in KoTOR1 by playing 2 first.  You should be able to find the first one very cheap now, so I'd definitely play that one first.
6053  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / OXM Subscription- December's issue AFK on: December 17, 2005, 02:19:18 AM
It's probably not related, but I got my December Game Informer and Gamepro much later than usual, with the January Gamepro actually arriving before the December issue.  Perhaps there's some sort of magazine printing/shipping problem going on?
6054  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones on: December 16, 2005, 03:27:42 AM
I loved the actual missions in Sly 2 and Jak 2, but I hated getting to them.  I'm enjoying Ratchet 3 much more, simply because you can just pick a planet and go there.  It's not that hubs can't work, but both Sly 2 and Jak 2 did them so horribly, I've really been turned off to the whole idea.  I haven't played Sly 3 or Jak 3 yet, but I'm hoping both are much improved in this area.
6055  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones on: December 15, 2005, 07:56:21 PM
Personally, I like the focused linearity of the PoP games.  Hub worlds are OK for some games, but they can go horribly wrong, as in Sly 2 and Jak 2.  Both experiences were diluted with frustrating slogs between mission points.
6056  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest 8 prequel announced on: December 15, 2005, 05:08:48 AM
"Unfortunately it looks like DQ8 had a very soft first month at retail"
Really?  I haven't seen any numbers, but everything I've read makes it sound like it's a big hit.  It's been a long time since I've seen an RPG get as much attention (both before and after release) as DQ8 has.
6057  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest 8 prequel announced on: December 15, 2005, 02:36:11 AM
According to another article about it, the magazine was V-Jump.
6058  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Grandia III official NA release date on: December 15, 2005, 01:33:52 AM
And Tales of Phantasia for GBA in March.
6059  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest 8 prequel announced on: December 15, 2005, 01:28:10 AM
RPGamer has some details and screens for Dragon Quest Yangus, a prequel to DQ8 featuring a younger version of Yangus.  The article is here.
6060  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Grandia III official NA release date on: December 14, 2005, 09:00:44 PM
Kingdom Hearts 2 will also have a fast localization - late December in Japan and March or April for the US. FF12 will also probably have a quick turnaround, hopefully less than 6 months.
6061  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Grandia III official NA release date on: December 14, 2005, 07:45:50 PM
RPGamer has some beautiful new screenshots here.
It looks like February will be another 3 RPG month, with Grandia 3, Tales of Legendia, and MS Saga : A New Dawn, and then Suikoden 5 in early March.  I never thought I'd say this, but there may be too many RPGs coming out.  I can't keep up smile
6062  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Final Fantasy IV Advance [gba] on: December 13, 2005, 09:13:30 AM
I'll definitely get it eventually, but I'm still working my way through Dawn of Souls, so it will probably be awhile.
6063  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Working Designs closes down on: December 13, 2005, 09:10:35 AM
According to RPGamer, Working Designs, who localized the Lunar series, Arc the Lad Collection, and Growlanser Generations, has shut down.  It's sad to see them go, as they always put a lot of love and effort into the games.  It seems like they just had too few big releases over too long a span of time to keep them afloat.  frown
6064  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gauntlet: Seven Sorrows Thread on: December 13, 2005, 07:24:50 AM
Reviews aren't looking good - 5.2 from Gamespot and 2/5 from Yahoo Games.
6065  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Shadow Hearts - FTNW English screens and box art on: December 13, 2005, 07:15:26 AM
RPGamer has the box art for the next Shadow Hearts game here and the first English screenshots here.
6066  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Famitsu] Phantasy Star Universe on: December 10, 2005, 01:59:28 AM
Next year is going to be amazing when it comes to RPGs, especially considering that it's a transition year between console generations.
6067  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Famitsu - 360] Blue Dragon Scans on: December 10, 2005, 01:54:10 AM
It will be interesting to see how Toriyama's designs translate into non-cel-shaded 3D.
6068  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rumor Mill: Valkyrie Profile 2? on: December 09, 2005, 10:46:31 AM
SquareEnix has confirmed both the PS2 game, a prequel to the original, and a remake of the original game for PSP.
6069  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Kingdom Hearts 2 - Official US website on: December 08, 2005, 10:45:22 AM
RPGamer has some news on some newly revealed FF characters who will appear in the game, including a surprising one from the SNES days.  The article is here.
6070  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rogue Galaxy - Gameplay video on: December 08, 2005, 12:28:36 AM
Worthplaying has bunch of new screenshots here.
6071  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rumor Mill: Valkyrie Profile 2? on: December 07, 2005, 07:49:57 PM
For some reason, the name of the game was cropped out of that image.  In the top right corner, it says Valkyrie Profile : Silmeria.  I don't see why this wouldn't come to the US, given the success of Star Ocean 3 and Radiata Stories.  There's also rumors of a PSP port of the original game.
6072  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Grandia 3 English video on: December 07, 2005, 07:04:42 AM
Similar to the Slime Knights page, SquareEnix has opened a fan page for the game here.  It definitely looks like the game is not too far from release smile
6073  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Grandia 3 English video on: December 06, 2005, 07:40:18 PM
Rumors are that it's coming in spring, which would make sense given that they just put up the website.  It's looking like Grandia 3 and Kingdom Hearts 2 will be released in back-to-back months, probably with KH2 in March/April and G3 in April/May.
6074  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Grandia 3 English video on: December 06, 2005, 07:07:44 AM
There's a teaser site for the English version here with a promise of the official site coming soon.
6075  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The Revolution has begun...(IGN chan, specs, launch date?) on: December 06, 2005, 07:03:36 AM
I know Nintendo isn't big on graphics, but haven't they said that the Revolution will be comparable with the other 2?
6076  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Grandia 3 English video on: December 06, 2005, 02:58:25 AM
For some reason, SquareEnix hasn't made an official announcement yet, but this new video, complete with English text and voiceovers, is pretty convincing evidence that the game is coming to the US.
6077  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Guitar Hero Impressions!!! on: December 06, 2005, 02:52:39 AM
I'm thinking about putting this on my Christmas list, but I have a question first.  The game was developed by the same people who did Frequency and Amplitude.  I liked the part of those games where you matched up notes, but I never really understood the whole "freestyle" thing where you're supposed to play notes without being told which ones.  Does GH have something similar, or are you always following the "notes" on screen?
6078  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / MOO v. MOO2 - Fight! on: December 06, 2005, 02:46:54 AM
I really liked MOO, but didn't like MOO2 at all.  There's something to be said for a simple, streamlined designed, and MOO is a great example of this.  I found MOO2 bloated, with a bunch of stuff thrown in just because the designers could; not because it was a good idea.  Admittedly, I didn't play it for very long, but I just kept running into things I didn't like and it just seemed like everything they added made the game worse.
6079  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rogue Galaxy - Gameplay video on: December 05, 2005, 04:29:32 AM
Given that the devloper's last 3 games have all been big commercial and critical successes, I'd say there's no way it won't make it to the US.
6080  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones on: December 04, 2005, 07:13:49 AM
The wall jumps were, for some reason, much less forgiving than the other moves, but there are only a few of them in SoT, IIRC.  The only game I've played where this move wasn't frustrating is Ratchet & Clank.
