6201  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.
6202  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.
6203  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.
6204  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Why is there no Lost thread? on: October 20, 2005, 06:22:32 PM
I hope they continue to focus more on the non-main characters.  I find Jack, Kate, and Sawyer to be much less interesting than the other characters.
6205  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Baten Kaitos II Screens on: October 20, 2005, 03:44:21 PM
I'd be surprised if it didn't.  The game actually sold better in the US than in Japan.
6206  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Famitsu] Children of Mana DS on: October 20, 2005, 05:41:45 AM
RPGamer has some story and battle details here.
6207  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 vs Playstation 3 on: October 20, 2005, 05:28:41 AM
Since there are already games I know I'll want for all 3 systems - FF13 (and no doubt many other RPGs) for PS3, Blue Dragon and Lost Odyssey for 360, and Nintendo's first-party (and their downloadable back catalogue) stuff, I know I'll be getting all 3 eventually.  I doubt I'll get them until they're $200 or less, but luckily, I've got a ton of current gen games to keep me busy until then smile
6208  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / How many games have you bought/Acquired in 2005? on: October 20, 2005, 05:15:38 AM
Games I bought (or will buy) new this year -
Atelier Iris : Eternal Mana
Digital Devil Saga 1 and 2
Radiata Stories
Suikoden 4
Sigma Star Saga
Jade Empire
Dungeon Siege 2
Magna Carta
Dragon Quest 8
Wild ARMs Alter Code F

I probably bought another 50 or so, but they were used and most cost between $1 and $10.
6209  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Famitsu] Children of Mana DS on: October 19, 2005, 06:52:44 PM
SquareEnix recently trademarked "Children of Mana" in the US, so I'd say it's definitely coming here.  Speaking of Mana news, the (presumably PS2) Mana game will feature the Havok physics engine, according to RPGamer.  It'll be interesting to see how they use it in an RPG.
6210  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / How many games have you bought/Acquired in 2005? on: October 18, 2005, 10:10:09 PM
I love The Third Age.  It has amazing atmosphere, although there's not much of a story and almost all of your time is spent in the excellent turn-based combat.  I paid full price for it, and I'd do it again, but it's probably not for everyone.
6211  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Did I dream this? -Beyond Good and Evil- on: October 18, 2005, 07:16:44 PM
After King Kong, Ancel is working on Rayman 4.  I wouldn't count on seeing a sequel to BG&E, but if Tak can get 3 sequels, who knows? slywink
6212  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest 8 free demo available on: October 18, 2005, 07:15:34 PM
Try the other part of the demo.  It lets you play battles as level 15 characters with several skills.  The tension system also adds some complexity to battles,  as its useful against some enemies, but it's a gamble using it.
6213  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What are you buying this week? (10/17) on: October 18, 2005, 05:41:11 AM
I'm not getting anything right now, but I will definitely eventually get Crash Tag Team Racing, Shadow of The Colossus, Shining Force Neo, THAW, Stubbs the Zombie, Fire Emblem, and probably AoE3.
6214  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Shining Force Neo looking good on: October 15, 2005, 07:00:29 AM
Gamespy,  1Up, and Gamespot have posted hands-on previews for the action-RPG Shining Force Neo, hitting the PS2 next week.  They're all positive, especially 1Up's, so it looks like the game will be a good one.  I won't be getting it next week, but I'll definitely be picking it up eventually.
6215  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Yggdra Union from creators of Riviera on: October 14, 2005, 06:56:46 PM
RPGamer has some details about Yggdra Union, a strategy RPG from Sting, the creators of the excellent Riviera for the GBA.
6216  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Alias 10/13 on: October 14, 2005, 06:55:59 PM
Another good episode.  I know it won't match the first 2 seasons, but it least it looks like Alias will go out on a good note.  I just hope they can keep a good balance between the old characters (Sloan/Dixon's story was pretty boring last night) and the new ones.  Hopefully, we can now get some more action sequences now that we have a new agent, as I loved the scene at the beginning with Amy Acker looking like some sort of dark Jedi with that robe and those vials.
6217  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.
6218  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.
6219  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.
6220  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.
6221  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.
6222  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).
6223  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.
6224  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.
6225  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?
6226  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.
6227  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.
6228  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.
6229  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.
6230  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.
6231  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.
6232  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.
6233  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?
6234  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.
6235  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 or is getting the soundtrack with their game.
6236  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Final Fantasy 3 for DS in 2006/FF5 and FF6 for GBA announced on: October 05, 2005, 06:52:28 PM

6237  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.
6238  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.
6239  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.
6240  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"
