6201  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.
6202  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
6203  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.
6204  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
6205  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.
6206  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.
6207  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.
6208  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.
6209  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.
6210  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.
6211  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rogue Galaxy - Gameplay video on: December 08, 2005, 12:28:36 AM
Worthplaying has bunch of new screenshots here.
6212  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.
6213  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
6214  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.
6215  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.
6216  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?
6217  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.
6218  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?
6219  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.
6220  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.
6221  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.
6222  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Liquid Metal Slimes - I love thee!! on: December 03, 2005, 08:45:59 PM
In DQ8, I believe babbles are called liquid slimes, and metal babbles are liquid metal slimes.
6223  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New Xenosaga III footage on: December 03, 2005, 08:42:02 PM
They may do what they did for XS2, and offer a preorder bonus DVD with a story recap of XS2 for XS3.
6224  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Romancing SaGa - $19.99 at Gamestop on: December 03, 2005, 07:29:08 AM
I think I'm going to go for the preowned copy for $34.99 slywink
6225  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Liquid Metal Slimes - I love thee!! on: December 03, 2005, 02:38:53 AM
Metal Slimes have extremely high defense and a very high probablility of running away each turn.  Boosting your agility so you can act before it does helps, as do certain skills.  If you're lucky enough to get one, a critical hit from anyone will kill them in one hit.  There was a spell in the earlier games that would also kill them in one hit, but I don't know if there's an equivalent in DQ8.  

Also, I've read that there are King Metal Slimes that give something like 30,000 exp. each  :shock:
6226  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Drink Your Final Fantasy! on: December 03, 2005, 02:35:35 AM
I've been playing FF1 on the PSOne, and I've taken 99 potions into a dungeon, and still run out.  I had to return to Mt. Gulg 3-4 times before being able to make it through to the end.  And people think DQ8 is tough slywink
6227  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Not liking Serious Sam... on: December 02, 2005, 01:49:55 AM
It depends on the player.  Most FPS games bore me to tears, but I really like the SS games.
6228  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Drink Your Final Fantasy! on: December 02, 2005, 01:46:23 AM
You don't actually drink it.  You put your hand in the air, and then sparkles appear around you, and you magically feel better slywink
6229  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Ape Escape 3 coming in January on: December 01, 2005, 10:37:49 AM
Gamespot has the news that Ape Escape 3 will be coming to the US January 17.  Ape Escape 2 was lots of fun, and it looks like AE3 will feature some interesting new mechanics.
6230  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Civ 4 demo on: December 01, 2005, 10:35:37 AM
I have an Athlon 2200, a Radeon 9550 video card, and 512 MB RAM, and it ran very smoothly on mine.
6231  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Kingdom Hearts 2 - Official US website on: December 01, 2005, 12:26:28 AM
"I think I had somewhere near 34 hours logged"
I'm about 38 hours and in Halloween Town, with lots more to go.

Tetsuya Nomura, who I believe is the director of the KH series, did the character design for FFs 7, 8, X, and I think X-2.
6232  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Kingdom Hearts 2 - Official US website on: November 30, 2005, 07:37:09 PM
SquareEnix has posted the official US website for Kingdom Hearts 2, along with a release date of Spring 2006 smile
6233  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / DQ8 - questions (may contain slight spoilers) on: November 30, 2005, 12:35:35 AM
Yes, certain named enemies are only around at night, and there are other conditions for them appearing as well.  I just got to Alexandria, and there have been 5 that I've seen so far.  According to the FAQ, there are around 80 monsters to recruit.
6234  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Mobile Suit - A New Saga on: November 29, 2005, 07:47:26 PM
Worthplaying has a preview for the upcoming Gundam RPG Mobile Suit.  I've only just heard of the Gundam series, but this game is looking good, with a nice turn-based battle system and customization options.
6235  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / M and L: partners in time! on: November 29, 2005, 07:45:24 PM
This will be the first game I get when I buy a DS.
6236  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone else remember the "Read All About It" show? on: November 29, 2005, 07:42:28 PM
" Didn't they have a self aware 'computer' that would help them? Or was it a robotic printer?"
They had both.  Theta was the computer, and Otto was the printer.  What's funny is that the show was about writing and the kids ran a newspaper, and one of the actors became a writer (of the movie Out of Time and the upcoming Annapolis) and one of the others became a reporter.
6237  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Take a Videogame Quiz! on: November 29, 2005, 09:37:02 AM
I got 9/10, missing the last question.

You scored 9 out of 10.
You obviously know your stuff. So where the deuce is Duke Nukem Forever?
6238  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Anyone else remember the "Read All About It" show? on: November 29, 2005, 07:25:15 AM
I guess I'll just reminisce by myself then  tear
6239  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New Kingdom Hearts 2 world revealed - Wow! on: November 28, 2005, 07:42:10 PM
There are some new details on the game here and a bunch of new Famitsu scans here.  I really like how the Atlantica world will be a musical and there will be light-cycle racing in the Tron world.  It really looks like there will be a lot of variety in the gameplay, something the first game was lacking in.
6240  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / So this is where all the 360's went..... on: November 28, 2005, 03:29:10 AM
Well, you do a get a free Pooh with it, so it's not all bad.  Maybe someone should send Kramer over there to go all "Serenity NOW!" on the boxes slywink
