6161  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Mobile Suit Gundam Saga details on: October 13, 2005, 06:11:01 AM
IGN has an interview regarding the US version of the RPG Mobile Suit Saga, called Gundam : True Odyssey in Japan.  I know nothing about Gundam, but I'm a sucker for RPGs, especially turn-based ones.  It's due out in February.
6162  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / SSX: On Tour on: October 12, 2005, 06:44:08 PM
I think the XBox uses the triggers and face button combos (i.e. X+Y, etc) for tricks, rather than black and white buttons.  The FAQ for SSX3 should list the controls for the different versions - I remember checking it when trying to decide which version to get.
6163  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Disgaea 2 Japanese Playstation Mag Scans on: October 12, 2005, 06:49:57 AM
RPGamer has a bunch of new screenshots here.
6164  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Famitsu] Mario and Luigi RPG 2 on: October 11, 2005, 01:31:52 AM
The first game is very clever in its mechanics, so I can't wait to see what they do with the touchscreen.
6165  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What was the first Console game you ever played? on: October 11, 2005, 01:30:55 AM
The first I can remember is The Smurfs for the Colecovision.  I know we had an Atari, but I don't remember playing anything on it.
6166  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / First game you ever played on the PC? on: October 11, 2005, 01:29:20 AM
The first one I can remember is Miner 2049er on the Commodore 64 (I think, either that or the Vic 20).
6167  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Famistu] Rogue Galaxy on: October 10, 2005, 07:11:57 PM
It's definitely one of my most anticipated games.  I spent 190 hours with Dark Cloud 2, and this game is supposed to be ever bigger.  There's been no official announcement of a US version, but there's no doubt it will make it here, given the success of the Dark Cloud games.  I'm guessing Sony will even publish it themselves.
6168  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Terrific hands-on preview of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion... on: October 10, 2005, 04:42:33 AM
When a console game is called to exclusive to one platform, it just means it won't be on the other 2.  It could still be on PC or one of the handhelds.
6169  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Terrific hands-on preview of Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion... on: October 09, 2005, 10:08:50 PM
The original Game Informer article revealing the game mentioned a possible PS3 release.  Have they ruled that out?
6170  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / How's the AI in Age of Empires 3? on: October 09, 2005, 07:03:39 AM
They will be releasing an updated demo soon, with a smaller interface, bug fixes, and a tutorial.
6171  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Digital Devil Saga 2 impressions (absolutely no spoilers) on: October 08, 2005, 05:37:19 AM
In case anyone doesn't know, the DVD sleeve is reversible.  The other side has different cover art that matches the DDS1 cover and box set insert.
6172  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gladius. Remember Gladius? Also: KOTOR 3 Cancelled?!?!?!?! on: October 08, 2005, 05:33:35 AM
Maybe it's being done by the mystery developer who is supposedly working on Baldur's Gate 3.
6173  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Battle.Net = Product Announcement? on: October 08, 2005, 12:30:03 AM
Wow, it sure didn't take very long to outdo the absurb "Origen" XBox360 countdown thing.
6174  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / LOST - 10/05/05 - HOLY CRAP! on: October 07, 2005, 07:49:56 AM
I thought the training video also mentioned that entering the sequence (or at least using the computer in some way) was a precaution against something bad happening.
6175  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / LOST - 10/05/05 - HOLY CRAP! on: October 06, 2005, 07:51:31 AM
"Jack not telling Locke and Kate "Yeah, I saw him before, a few years back"....heck, Jack should've been saying to everyone, "Hey, I know you! We met back...." the second he recognized him. Why wouldn't he mention it? Anyone have any idea of motivation?"
Jack was extremely freaked out by seeing Desmond there.  It should be impossible for him to find someone he met before, and he can't deal with fact that there's no way it could be a coincidence.  His rational world is falling apart, and telling the others about Desmond would be confirming something that should be impossible.  I liked the parallels of Jack and Locke's breakdowns, with Jack holding a gun on Desmond, and Locke asking the island what he's supposed to do.
6176  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / DS Conference [it's final, DS > PSP] on: October 05, 2005, 11:48:46 PM
Actually, it's a picture of Bill Gates draped across a Ferrari in a red speedo.  Don't you wish you could see it now?  :lol:

Mistwalker also announced their DS RPG called ASH.  RPGamer has some details here.  Also, Nintendo announced an RPG based on the Tingle character from Zelda, and Namco announced they are working on a Tales game for the DS.
6177  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / DS Conference [it's final, DS > PSP] on: October 05, 2005, 11:17:55 PM
I think Miyamoto would still look like that even if he had just found out that the world was going to end slywink

"Do Bill Gates or Ken Kutaragi ever look like they're having this much fun?"
Maybe not, but has Miyamoto ever looked this sexy?
6178  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Bioware 2005-10-04 on: October 05, 2005, 10:31:59 PM
There's an interview about the game at Gamespot.  They call the combat similar to KoTOR (you'll have 3 characters), but it will be all real-time and have "aspects of a shooter".  Also, the character you create (you'll have a choice of classes) will go through all 3 games of the series, as in the Baldur's Gate saga.  They also emphasize that it is foremost an RPG.
6179  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Digital Devil Saga 2 impressions (absolutely no spoilers) on: October 05, 2005, 10:22:42 PM
I picked up my pre-order today, but as usual, I didn't get the bonus soundtrack.  I still have to finish up the first one, but I can't wait to get started on it as soon as I do.  Also, from what I've read at GameFAQs, it looks like no one who preordered from EBGames.com or Gamstop.com is getting the soundtrack with their game.

6181  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Final Fantasy 3 for DS in 2006/FF5 and FF6 for GBA announced on: October 05, 2005, 11:18:22 AM
That would explain what's taking so long with FF3.  Hopefully, we'll get some screenshots soon.
6182  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Bioware 2005-10-04 on: October 05, 2005, 08:59:07 AM
According to IGN, "Microsoft Game Studios Executive Shane Kim and BioWare team members have said in the past that Jade Empire 2 (working title) is definitely in development." and "We have a couple of Xbox 360 titles in development right now," said a BioWare spokesperson. "But we're recruiting across the board for all four development teams. We have two teams working on Xbox 360 titles, one team on Dragon Age (for the PC), and one on digital distribution, which is ongoing content created for Neverwinter Nights."  It seems like Bioware really likes the Jade Empire world they created, so I would think they would rather do the sequel themselves than let someone else handle it.
6183  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Bioware 2005-10-04 on: October 05, 2005, 07:12:16 AM
They're calling it an action-RPG with squad-based tactical combat.  That sounds like it will be third-person, with party members you can order around.  Also, given the amazing job they did creating the Jade Empire world, I don't think we have to worry about the gameworld being generic sci-fi.

"Maybe I wanted a Jade Empire sequel, which took me back to the days of Oriental Adventures for D&D."
According to IGN, they're already working on that, too.
6184  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Bioware 2005-10-04 on: October 04, 2005, 07:14:24 PM
Worthplaying has some more details here.  They're calling it an action-RPG that "employs a real-time, squad based, tactical combat system"
6185  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rhapsody and Persona 2 in-stock at Gamestop? on: October 04, 2005, 06:57:08 PM
I found a copy of Persona 2 at my local Gamestop yesterday, and although it was being sold as used, it looked brand-new.  I remember that some website was selling new copies of Persona 2 and Rhapsody a while back, so I checked Gamestop's website, and they are listing both games as in-stock online and most stores are showing up as having 1-3 copies.  It's worth checking out if you've been looking for them.
6186  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Bioware 2005-10-04 on: October 03, 2005, 07:06:48 PM
If it is an XBox360 game, then it's most likely the FPS/RPG that they've hinted at, although there's a small possibility it could be the rumored Jade Empire 2.
6187  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What the heck are you getting this week? (Week of October 3) on: October 03, 2005, 10:35:27 AM
I'll be getting DDS 2 as well, although I won't be playing it for awhile.  I'm only about halfway through the first, and definitely want to finish it first.
6188  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Bioware 2005-10-04 on: October 03, 2005, 10:33:07 AM
On Bioware's home page, there's a little flashing sign reading "2005-10-04".  Presumably, they will be announcing something then.  Hopefully, it will be their unannounced console title, but given the lameness of these recent countdown events, it will probably be another NWN module.
6189  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Civ IV: A bit concerned on: October 03, 2005, 03:46:37 AM
"I have faith in Sid but I hope this doesn't end up looking like a mass-market boardgame."
I may be wrong, but I don't think Sid Meier had much to do with Civ 4 or Civ 3.
6190  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Jade Empire 14.99 on: October 02, 2005, 09:20:51 AM
It's worth every bit of the $50 I paid for it.
6191  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FF4 GBA Famitsu Scans on: October 01, 2005, 01:24:22 AM
According to RPGamer, Nintendo and Square Enix are interested in bringing more FF games to the GBA, presumably meaning FF5 and FF6.
6192  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBox360 gets another RPG - Magna Carta 2 on: September 30, 2005, 08:36:31 AM
I'm not sure who Bill Gates in sleeping with to get all these companies to put their RPGs on the 360, but it's apparently working slywink  According to RPGamer, the sequel to the PS2's soon-to-be-released Magna Carta is headed to the 360.  There will also be a port of the PS2 game on the PSP.
6193  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Bethesda guarantees Oblivion for XBox 360 launch on: September 30, 2005, 03:17:25 AM
Didn't the XBox version of Morrowind have some pretty big bugs, even though it was released after the PC version?
6194  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Ubisoft officially jumps the shark on: September 29, 2005, 08:54:05 PM
They're publishing a dancing game, just like several other companies have done.  Why is this bad  :?:
6195  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Disgaea 2 and Ys Strategy rumors on: September 29, 2005, 08:58:49 AM
RPGamer has some details for Disgaea 2.
6196  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / DS RPG from Killer 7 creator on: September 28, 2005, 11:05:12 PM
It's called Contact, and according to the info at Gamespot, it sounds like it could be interesting.
6197  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / World of Mana (partially) revealed on: September 28, 2005, 07:43:39 PM
According to RPGamer, Square Enix has announced some details for their upcoming group of "Mana" games, collectively called "World of Mana".  There's Children of Mana for the DS (picture here) and Seiken Densetsu 4, a 3D game for an unspecified platform (picture here).
6198  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Lunar: Dragon Song on: September 28, 2005, 07:18:59 PM
Since enemies are visible, you can run past them to avoid fighting them.  The HP loss is supposed to prevent you from doing this and avoiding the fights.  It's a dumb solution, but thankfully, the reviews say that it become irrelevant once you've gone up some levels.
6199  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Blockbuster - 25% off used games on: September 28, 2005, 05:23:27 PM
My Blockbuster/Gamerush has a very large selection, too.
6200  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Disgaea 2 and Ys Strategy rumors on: September 28, 2005, 10:38:06 AM
According to RPGamer, rumors are circulating that both Disgaea 2 and an Ys strategy game for the DS will be announced in the next Famitsu, a Japanese magazine.
