6041  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / RPG to look out for in 2006 - a few thoughts on: January 05, 2006, 10:07:00 AM
MS Saga does look interesting, although with Tales of Legendia and Grandia 3 both also coming out in February, it's going to be a tough choice of which to get.  I'm really looking forward to WA4, since platformers and RPGs are my two favorite types of games.
6042  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Devil May Cry 3 - Special Edition on: January 05, 2006, 06:53:28 AM
Similar to Ninja Gaiden Black, DMC3 is offering a special edition with a new easier mode (and a harder mode), new playable character, and some other extras.  Worthplaying has the details here.
6043  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / RPG to look out for in 2006 - a few thoughts on: January 05, 2006, 06:49:50 AM
From what I've seen in videos, the combat looks pretty similar to Dark Cloud 2, although I think you can pause in battles to change characters and select special moves.  There should be some discussion and reviews of the Japanese version at GameFAQs by now.
6044  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Need Help With Nippon Ichi Games on: January 04, 2006, 11:37:25 PM
I have a hard time getting into games without much story, unless they're something where story is totally unnecessary, like Unreal Tournament or something like that.
6045  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / RPG to look out for in 2006 - a few thoughts on: January 04, 2006, 09:45:24 AM
I think the US version of Disgaea is scheduled for the summer.  There are a ton of RPGs coming this year, starting with Wild ARMs 4 next week, and the flood won't let up until at least summer.
6046  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Random encounter frustration on: January 03, 2006, 09:30:30 PM
I don't mind random encounters, but I prefer visible enemies, and I like it even better when you can interact with the enemies, such as hitting them first to gain an advantage in games like Grandia and Magna Carta.  I think the reason random encounters are still around is due mostly to tradition, although it seems to be on its way out, especially with a big game like FF12 doing away with them.
6047  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Halo 2 for $5.24 on: December 27, 2005, 10:04:17 PM
I went to Blockbuster today to pick up Halo 2. They didn't have any used copies, but they have a special on new copies for $10.
6048  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Using 2 video cards at once? on: December 27, 2005, 07:36:45 AM
It looks like, even if it's possible, it would be more trouble than it's worth, so we'll probably go with either a new All-in-Wonder or a non-TV card, and pick up a separate TV tuner card later.  Thanks for the replies.
6049  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Using 2 video cards at once? on: December 26, 2005, 10:51:46 PM
My dad has a Radeon All-in-One card that has become obsolete, and is looking to upgrade the video. He'd like to get a new card that doesn't have a TV tuner, but still use the old All-in-One for the TV abilities. Is there any way to have both cards in the computer at once, and switch back and forth, using the All-in-One for the TV stuff, and the new card for everything else? If so, what would it entail, i.e. switching the monitor cord between the two cards, etc.
6050  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Valkyrie Profile Sequel Official Site on: December 24, 2005, 05:37:11 AM
:shock: tri-Ace's games seem to get more beautiful with each release.
6051  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Should Nintendo save the new Zelda for the Revolution? on: December 24, 2005, 12:18:59 AM
The PS3 will play PSOne and PS2 games.
6052  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / New Trailers - DaVinci Code and Poseidon + V for Vendetta on: December 22, 2005, 09:56:08 PM
I'm very glad to see the tidal wave in the Poseidon trailer, rather than the ridiculous terrorist plot in the awful TV movie remake from a few weeks ago.
6053  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Another upcoming Star Trek movie? on: December 22, 2005, 09:55:45 PM
There's nothing wrong with the Star Trek franchise that getting rid of the people who ruined it wouldn't fix.  The last season of Enterprise (barring the horrendous finale) was very good because they got a new show-runner and writers.  I believe I read that Bryan Singer (of the X-Men and new Superman movies) is a big Trek fan and has considered helming a new movie, and the creator of Babylon 5 was interested in doing a new series.  I would love to see either one.

Personally, I think they should go with a DS9-based movie.  It may not have the recognition of TNG, but that didn't help the box office for Nemesis, and DS9 had the best acting, writing, action, and drama.  In the hands of a good writer and director, they could make an amazing movie out of it.
6054  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.
6055  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.
6056  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.
6057  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.
6058  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
6059  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.
6060  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
6061  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.
6062  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.
6063  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.
6064  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.
6065  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.
6066  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?
6067  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.
6068  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.
6069  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.
6070  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.
6071  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.
6072  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.
6073  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.
6074  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
6075  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.
6076  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
6077  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.
6078  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.
6079  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.
6080  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.
