6041  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Mario Kart DS review [ign] on: November 12, 2005, 06:47:18 AM
I wonder why Nintendo puts more content into their handheld titles than their console ones.  The Mario Tennis and Golf games get the RPG treatment on the GBA, but not the consoles, and Mario Kart for the Gamecube was one of the weakest, most half-assed efforts I've seen from them, yet there's a lot more in the DS version.
6042  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Famitsu] Final Fantasy IV Advance Scans on: November 12, 2005, 02:15:38 AM
The FF3 remake is for the DS, while the FF4-6 remakes are for the GBA.  It's nice to see the GBA get some RPG love before it completely dies out, with FF4, FF5, FF6, Tales of Phantasia and (hopefully) Mother 3.

1Up and RPGamer have the first English screenshots, from the demo.
6044  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New Kingdom Hearts 2 world revealed - Wow! on: November 11, 2005, 05:47:52 AM
It's possible the light cycles will show up as a minigame.  It looks like they're pulling out all the stops for this game, so I'm assuming the problems I had with the original, like the constantly respawning enemies and poor game "flow" (i.e. wander back and forth between small areas until you trigger the plot to move forward) have been fixed.  I know the combat has been overhauled, as has the gummi ship, and the game also looks to be massive.  All of the first game's worlds are returning, plus worlds based on Tron, Beauty & The Beast, The Lion King, Mulan, Pirates of The Caribbean, and hopefully some more surprises.
6045  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New Kingdom Hearts 2 world revealed - Wow! on: November 10, 2005, 09:04:05 AM
As revealed in the new Shonen Jump -
TRON!
6046  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Magna Carta "confirmed" for November 8th release on: November 10, 2005, 12:06:43 AM
Sounds great.  I just wish I were playing it now rather than waiting until next week frown
6047  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest VIII ship date change . . . on: November 09, 2005, 11:55:49 PM
"I solved the DQ8 or FECubed problem. Yup, I'm getting both. Shocked People said I was crazy, but I showed them."
Hah - Crazy is buying DQ8, Magna Carta, and Wild ARMs Alter Code F all on the same day smile
6048  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / I may not get a PS3 - if this is true on: November 09, 2005, 08:34:07 PM
Another day, another obviously false PS3 rumor.  The way things are going, PS3 will come out in 2027, cost $4000, and not actually play any games.
6049  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest VIII ship date change . . . on: November 09, 2005, 09:07:52 AM
Ironically, none of the 3 RPGs being released next week were supposed to be released then.  DQ8 was originally scheduled for the 22nd, but then moved up a week, Magna Carta was scheduled for the 8th, but pushed back a week, and Wild ARMs was delayed several times, finally ending up on the 15th.
6050  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest VIII ship date change . . . on: November 09, 2005, 07:10:28 AM
Gamespot has a very cool new trailer here (Official Trailer 2).  I've read that the fight it shows is near the end of the game, but it's only a spoiler in the sense of what the enemy looks like, not who it is.  There's also some voice acting from Angelo and Jessica, both of whom sound great.
6051  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest VIII ship date change . . . on: November 08, 2005, 08:19:13 PM
There's a thread at GameFAQs with some pictures of the packaging.


One more week!
6052  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / How did Shining Force Neo hold up? on: November 08, 2005, 08:14:30 PM
I haven't played it myself yet, but most of the impressions I've read have been very positive.
6053  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Mother 3 (Earthbound 2) announced on: November 08, 2005, 08:46:44 AM
RPGamer has the news that Nintendo has put up a teaser site for Mother 3 for the GBA, a sequel to the wacky SNES RPG Earthbound.
6054  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Suikoden Tactics - tomorrow? on: November 08, 2005, 08:42:07 AM
IGN has posted their review with a score of 7.3.
6055  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / SONY PS3 to LAUNCH IN 2007 on: November 08, 2005, 07:08:30 AM
"Everybody keeps mentioning Killzone 2 as a major driving force for the PS3, not just here, but in person as well."
I think Killzone 2 is a PS2 game, whereas the E3 video was supposed to be Killzone 3.  I have no idea if it's any good or not, but the fact that it sold well and Sony is pushing the series is probably why it gets mentioned so much.
6056  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / SONY PS3 to LAUNCH IN 2007 on: November 08, 2005, 03:37:19 AM
I think people are willing to wait for the PS3.  Microsoft will probably pick up some people who would have bought a PS3 instead of a 360 is both were available, but I'll bet most of those people will also get a PS3 when it comes out.  There are still some big exclusive games coming for PS2 next year - Final Fantasy XII and Kingdom Hearts 2 being the biggest, but also Killzone 2, Onimusha 4, Phantasy Star Universe, and Rogue Galaxy.  
There's also the Japan factor.  Microsoft is definitely getting somewhere with Japanese developers, but it remains to be seen whether the Japanese consumers will care, and MS will likely only have less than a 6 month head start there.
6057  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Should Nintendo save the new Zelda for the Revolution? on: November 08, 2005, 03:24:07 AM
"I thought all the speculation with the Revolution controller was that Nintendo would be releasing "shells" to make it similar to the current Cube controller so that 3rd party ports can be easily played on the system."
You can just plug a Gamecube controller into the Revolution and use that.
6058  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Suikoden Tactics - tomorrow? on: November 07, 2005, 07:26:50 PM
I think Gamespot and Gamespy did some hands-on previews, and both were positive.  I'm not sure what's with the lack of buzz about the game, though.  I know Suikoden 4 was disappointing, but Tactics is looking good.  I'll definitely be getting it eventually, but I want to finish S4 first, and I'm getting DQ8, Magna Carta, and Wild ARMs next week.
6059  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Command & Conquer The First Decade announced on: November 07, 2005, 07:20:59 PM
From the Gamespot article - "allows all of our fans a chance to own a great C&C collection, re-mastered to work on current operating systems".
6060  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.
6061  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
6062  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.
6063  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
6064  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!
6065  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
6066  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.
6067  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:
6068  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.
6069  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.
6070  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.
6071  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.
6072  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.
6073  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.
6074  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.
6075  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
6076  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
6077  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.
6078  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.
6079  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.
