6041  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Magna Carta "confirmed" for November 8th release on: November 06, 2005, 03:37:27 AM
The best I can tell, from what I've read and seen, there's only one character and one enemy active at a time.  A bar fills, and when it hits a certain point, one of your characters can take an action, and you can choose which character will act.  It works the same way for the enemies, who have their own meter.  As with turn-based systems, the characters/enemies not currently attacking don't figure into it.  It's not like Star Ocean, where all characters and enemies are always active, just one of each at a time.  This probably isn't completely right, but this is how it seems to work in the videos.
6042  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Atlus announces 2 new RPGs on: November 05, 2005, 02:41:27 AM
There's a website for Steambot Chronicles (under the original and much cooler Japanese name "Junk Romance Great Action Bumpy Trot" here.  The screenshots show mechs, rhythm-based musical instrument-playing, pirates, and comboys, and the characters are named after spices (Marjoram, Fennel, etc).  It makes Metal Saga seem almost pedestrian by comparison slywink
6043  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Magna Carta "confirmed" for November 8th release on: November 05, 2005, 02:32:11 AM
Check the first page of this thread - there's a lengthy post describing the battle system.  Also, further down the first page is a link to some videos at etoychest.  One of them shows the battle tutorial from the game, which should also help explain things.
6044  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Atlus announces 2 new RPGs on: November 04, 2005, 08:15:12 PM
Atlus has announced that they're bringing two RPGs to the US - Metal Saga, an RPG which apparently combines driving tanks, an evil supercomputer, and battles both on foot and in tanks, and Steamboat Chronicles whose "non-linear gameplay gives you the freedom to do whatever you want; start a band, help the townspeople, or join a gang of bandits and terrorize them - all with customizable mechs and the industrial revolution!"   There are some screenshots for Metal Saga here and details on both games here. :shock:  biggrin
6045  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Magna Carta "confirmed" for November 8th release on: November 04, 2005, 08:12:17 PM
The game has been pushed back a week to November 15th.  This is just crazy - Dragon Quest 8, Final Fantasy 12 demo, Wild ARMs Alter Code F, and Magna Carta all on the same day!
6046  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Magna Carta "confirmed" for November 8th release on: November 04, 2005, 08:56:02 AM
If you've seen the female characters from the game, you know there's absolutely no way to confuse them with the male characters slywink
6047  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Tales of Phantasia GBA coming to US and Europe on: November 04, 2005, 02:35:29 AM
I guess the GBA isn't quite dead yet.  Tales of Phantasia, a GBA remake of the previously Japan-only SNES game, is coming to the US and Europe in March.  RPGFan has the news and there's some details on the game at RPGamer.
6048  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Magna Carta "confirmed" for November 8th release on: November 04, 2005, 02:17:05 AM
"Wow, checking the site out, the music composer - Sung-Woon Jang - has a birthdate of March 1997"
Maybe he's the Doogie Howser of the music world  :lol:
6049  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Shin Megami Tensei . . . online? on: November 03, 2005, 11:18:35 AM
AFAIK, it's still in development, but the chances of it coming to the US are pretty remote.
6050  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Your choices for best PC game music ever? on: November 03, 2005, 12:21:37 AM
Other than those mentioned, Betrayal At Krondor (the first time I heard CD-quality music) and Total Annihilation stand out in my mind.
6051  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Magna Carta "confirmed" for November 8th release on: November 02, 2005, 03:11:54 AM
RPGamer has a bunch of new English screenshots here.
6052  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Kingdom Hearts 2 voice cast on: November 01, 2005, 11:25:13 PM
Worthplaying has a list of some of the actors who will be providing voices for Kingdom Hearts 2.  It looks like the cast from the first game is returning, as well as most of the original voice actors for the new worlds, including the full cast of Pirates of the Caribbean.
6053  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo's Revolution - "No specs for you!!!" on: November 01, 2005, 10:21:29 PM
I don't think Nintendo ever made a big deal about the Gamecube specs, and it's on par with the other current-gen systems.
6054  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Magna Carta "confirmed" for November 8th release on: November 01, 2005, 11:36:43 AM
The voice acting certainly wasn't anywhere near Digital Devil Saga-quality, but it was far from horrible, and 20 second load times aren't bad.  I'm glad they have a nice long explanation of the battle system.  It looks like, once you learn it, it will be a blast, as it combines elements of my favorite RPG battle systems.
6055  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Magna Carta "confirmed" for November 8th release on: October 31, 2005, 08:41:00 PM
"everything I've read about the combat system makes me think of 'Legend of Dragoon"
Personally, I would love that (LoD is probably my all-time favorite battle system), but I think it's more like Shadow Hearts, where you press a button as the cursor swings around a circle.
6056  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / SONY PS3 to LAUNCH IN 2007 on: October 31, 2005, 08:08:13 PM
Did this come from the same source that said Diablo 3 and StarCraft 2 would be announced at BlizzCon? slywink
6057  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Magna Carta "confirmed" for November 8th release on: October 31, 2005, 08:04:24 PM
My wallet was hoping for a delay, but the rest of me is very happy.  Magna Carta, Wild ARMs : Alter Code F, Dragon Quest 8, and the Final Fantasy XII demo all in the space of 8 days!  biggrin
6058  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are you buying this week? (10/31) on: October 31, 2005, 08:01:36 PM
Castlevania eventually, but nothing right now.
6059  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / 4 min Grandia 3 Intro Video - No Japanese skill required on: October 29, 2005, 08:17:14 PM
According to RPGamer, the game has been given a ESRB rating, meaning it will definitely be coming to the US.  Hopefully, we'll get an official announcement soon.
6060  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wild ARMs : Alter Code F coming Nov. 15 on: October 29, 2005, 08:14:46 PM
Speaking of Wild ARMs, RPGamer has the box art for Magna Carta here.  This might be a good sign for a November 8 release, but if so, they should be unveiling the official website very soon.
6061  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 - Street Date Broken Already? on: October 29, 2005, 08:10:33 PM
Is that VelocityGirl?
6062  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Blizzcon and WoW addon on: October 29, 2005, 11:31:28 AM
There's a rumor going around that they're going to announce Diablo 3 as an MMORPG for the XBox360 and StarCraft 2 for the PC.  I'd put the likelihood of either happening at about 0 slywink
6063  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wild ARMs : Alter Code F coming Nov. 15 on: October 29, 2005, 02:12:25 AM
From what I've read about the original WA and what I've played of WA2, the wild west thing wasn't a big part of the game.  There are elements of a western setting, but also a heavy amount of standard console RPG settings.  Wild ARMs 3 had much more of a western setting, while it looks like WA4 will have very little.
6064  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wild ARMs : Alter Code F coming Nov. 15 on: October 28, 2005, 11:03:58 AM
I don't think there's much chance we'll see Magna Carta on the 8th.  Atlus has "winter" listed on their website, and they haven't said anything about a release date other than that.
6065  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wild ARMs : Alter Code F coming Nov. 15 on: October 28, 2005, 09:18:55 AM
RPGamer has the news that Agetec has announced the release date for Wild ARMs : Alter Code F, a remake of the original Wild ARMs for the PSOne.  I love the Wild ARMs series mix of traditional RPG gameplay and heavy use of puzzles, and I never got a chance to play the original.  November 15 is going to be quite a day - Wild ARMs, Dragon Quest 8, and the Final Fantasy XII demo  drool
6066  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Growlanser 5 announced on: October 28, 2005, 08:46:21 AM
1Up has the first details on Growlanser 5, a strategy RPG for the PS2.  Growlanser 2 and 3 were released in the US as Growlanser Generations, and I'm playing through 2 now and enjoying it.  Working Designs brought Generations to the US, but hopefully Atlus themselves will bring 5 over, since they're publishing the game in Japan.
6067  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Gladius] - Thanks Dafones! on: October 25, 2005, 10:31:29 PM
The upcoming Lord of The Rings : Tactics and the GBA version of LoTR : The Third Age are some other western-developed SRPGs.
6068  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / stubbs the zombie? on: October 25, 2005, 09:38:20 PM
You're right.  That's what I get for having 10 tabs open in Firefox all the time, and switching back and forth between news stories and forum postings slywink
6069  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / stubbs the zombie? on: October 25, 2005, 07:49:53 PM
They're making a computer-animated primetime show based on the game, apparently to air on Fox.
6070  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PS2]Sly Cooper/Jak&Daxter/Ratchet &Clank-which ones on: October 25, 2005, 07:45:18 PM
"Too bad they are all so short. Max 10hours for 2 and 3." (Ratchet & Clank)
Maybe if you just do what's required, but there's a lot of optional stuff to do.  My final time with Going Commando was over 40 hours, and I didn't even get everything.  You can also play through both games a second time in challenge mode, where enemies are tougher, but you can upgrade your weapons further.
6071  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest VIII ship date change . . . on: October 25, 2005, 07:28:33 AM
Check out the "Official Movie 1" here for a sample of the new orchestrated music.  Also, Gamespy has posted a great preview  that does a great job of explaining the appeal of the DQ series.
6072  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest VIII ship date change . . . on: October 25, 2005, 05:23:24 AM
Great news!  SquareEnix also released some nice new screenshots to commemorate the occasion - here.
6073  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PS2]Sly Cooper/Jak&Daxter/Ratchet &Clank-which ones on: October 23, 2005, 11:23:07 PM
The Jak series is the most storyline-intensive (especially 2 and 3), so it would be best to play those in order.  The Slys and R&Cs also have continuing elements in them, so you'll enjoy them more if you play them in order, and they're all worth playing.
6074  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Shining Force Neo looking good on: October 22, 2005, 01:19:21 AM
"I don't want to believe all of the negativity that surrounds that game. People that have played it say that it's OK but the battle system is messed."
What have you heard?  The battle system sounds like a cross between the ones in Star Ocean 3 and Shadow Hearts, both of which I loved.  The only review I've seen (at GameFAQs) gave the game 9/10.

I'm not sure about the November 8 release date.  The Atlus website says "Winter" and November isn't winter.  If it's going to make that date, the official website should be unveiled soon.
6075  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FATE - new patch and textures mod on: October 21, 2005, 07:03:39 PM
RPGDot has news of a new patch and a mod that reworks the original floor textures and adds some new ones.  I tried the textures mod, and the new level I've seen looks very nice, and it's good to have a little more variety in the levels.
6076  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Shining Force Neo looking good on: October 21, 2005, 06:44:14 PM
I'll be getting it eventually, but given next month's 3-week RPG extravaganza (Magna Carta on the 8th, Wild ARMs Alter Code F on the 15th, and Dragon Quest 8 on the 22nd, all of which I have preordered), it's going to have to wait.
6077  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Any News on any future Buffy Games? on: October 21, 2005, 06:38:07 PM
The only way I can see them making another game in the series is if they do a new TV show in the Buffyverse or a movie, both of which are unlikely.
6078  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Mario Paint for Revolution and DS?! on: October 21, 2005, 07:35:07 AM
A Revolution version would be great.  I loved Mario Paint, and I think playing it was the first time I ever used a mouse.
6079  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What's the Scoop on Starcraft Ghost? on: October 21, 2005, 01:50:22 AM
When Swingin' Ape took over development, they scrapped pretty much everything Nihilistic had done, and started over from scratch.
6080  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Baten Kaitos II Screens on: October 20, 2005, 06:25:26 PM
I'm about halfway through and really enjoying the first game.  It has the best graphics/music combination I've seen in an RPG in a long time.  The voice acting is mediocre, but I've heard much worse.  The card-based battles are fun, and the random allotment of cards makes the battles less monotonous than in other RPGs.
