6321  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Flipnic - Ultimate Pinball on: May 18, 2005, 09:23:16 AM
IGN has a hands-on look at this very cool-sounding pinball adventure game here.  It looks great, and it's only $20.
6322  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Best video game trailer ever? on: May 18, 2005, 07:24:50 AM
The best trailer I've seen is the final trailer for Prince of Persia : The Sands of Time, with Shadow Hearts : Covenant coming in second.
6323  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Why isn't anyone talking about the new 2d Mario platformer? on: May 17, 2005, 10:24:50 PM

And Luigi gets the shaft again!  Someday, living in Mario's shadow is just going to be too much, and Luigi is going to beat Mario to a pulp slywink

I didn't like either Super Mario 64 or Sunshine, so I'm glad Mario's going to be in 2D again.
6324  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / XBOX 360 Games to be $59.99 each... on: May 17, 2005, 10:21:56 PM
Until Microsoft announces something official, this is just a guess by EB.  It could go either way at this point - $50 or $60.
6325  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Digital Devil Saga 1 - I need some opinions on it.... on: May 17, 2005, 10:20:54 PM
I'd recommend playing DDS first.  It uses a very similar battle system, but overall, the gameplay is simpler and easier.  I'd still buy Nocturne now, before its gets any rarer, but it would probably be easier to play after going through DDS.
6326  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nominees for strangest game at E3. on: May 17, 2005, 10:18:10 PM

Odama - a pinball wargame with a pool of naked bald men.
6327  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Anyone else impressed with the DS games at E3? on: May 17, 2005, 10:17:31 PM
I'd buy a DS just for M&L 2, but there are also a lot of other games that look great, like Animal Crossing, Super Mario Bros, and Metroid Pinball.
6328  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / E3 2005 - Best Screenshots on: May 17, 2005, 10:12:31 PM
It looks like Angel is thrashing Spike in the lobby of Wolfram & Hart slywink


What's even odder is that this is a pinball wargame.
6329  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Xbox 360] Final Fantasy XI on: May 17, 2005, 08:13:31 PM
As long as the "numbered" FF games stay exclusive to Sony (and that appears to be the case with the PS3), the FF games on the other consoles aren't of much consequence.
6330  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Where can I find a video of that FF7 PS3 tech demo? on: May 17, 2005, 07:37:25 PM
With all the work that would have to go into remaking FF7 for the PS3, they'd be better off just making a sequel.
6331  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FALLOUT 3 on: May 17, 2005, 07:05:37 AM
"And if it's just Morrowind with guns, kill as many of the Bethesda employees as you can before you're taken out by security."
When they announced they had bought the rights, they also said that it would be nothing like Morrowind.
6332  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Atelier Iris delayed a month on: May 17, 2005, 06:22:03 AM
According to RPGamer, Nippon Ichi America's Atelier Iris has been delayed until June 28.
6333  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Where can I find a video of that FF7 PS3 tech demo? on: May 17, 2005, 06:18:32 AM
Gamespot has it available for download, and it is amazing.
6334  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest 8 Release Date: November 2005 on: May 17, 2005, 06:04:34 AM
Also, according to Gamespot, the US version will add voice acting to the cut-scenes and a new "graphical user interface" smile
6335  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Final Fantasy Advent Children Trailer on: May 17, 2005, 06:03:21 AM
While I hope the story and localization hold up, this will be worth watching just to see it.
6336  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / System Discussion: Playstation 3 on: May 17, 2005, 02:03:10 AM
I'm really surprised Sony is this far along - I figured they wouldn't even have the unit on display.  According to IGN, some tech demos showed the actual Spiderman model from the Spiderman 2 movie and a recreation of the FF7 intro sequence both running in real-time on the PS3 :shock:

As for the controller, I couldn't care less about what it looks like, as long as it plays well.  The slanted D-pad and buttons have me concerned, but I'll reserve judgment until I've heard some hands-on impressions of how it feels.
6337  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What annoucement I'm REALLY hoping for? on: May 17, 2005, 01:34:27 AM
The announcement of the US release of Dragon Quest 8 already has me giddy, but I'm really hoping Sony announces Dark Cloud 3.
6338  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest 8 Release Date: November 2005 on: May 17, 2005, 01:31:36 AM
Only 6 more months to wait for DQ8!  This is going to be a very expensive fall and winter for me.  I think fiscal year 2006 ends in March, so that would put FF12 in the early spring.  Also, Square had a recreation of the FF7 intro running in real-time on the PS3 at Sony's press conference - perhaps meaning the rumored FF7-2 will be a PS3 title.
6339  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New Shadow Hearts 3 characters revealed on: May 16, 2005, 07:27:20 PM
There's an interview at RPGFan that talks a little about the series' sales.
6340  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Who are your favorite & least fav modern Star Trek char' on: May 16, 2005, 07:35:15 AM
Benjamin Sisko is my favorite character in all of Trek.  Just thinking about Sisko's monologue from "In the Pale Moonlight" where he says that he'd have knowlingly let an innocent person be killed to get the Romulans to join the Dominion War still gives me chills.  Garak would be my second pick - I love conflicted characters and he was more developed than some of the main characters have been.

The only character that I ever really disliked was Neelix, who I found annoying.
6341  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New Shadow Hearts 3 characters revealed on: May 16, 2005, 05:06:16 AM
I read in an interview that Covenant sold about as well in the US as the original Shadow Hearts did, so that's a good sign for #3.  Also, the fact that it's set in the US and the small, but devoted following the series has gained bode well.  I also have a sneaking suspicion that someone high-up at Midway is a big fan of the series.  It's just so different from what the games Midway usually puts out, it's really odd that they were the ones that brought the first two games to the US.
6342  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New Shadow Hearts 3 characters revealed on: May 15, 2005, 06:53:55 AM
RPGamer has some details on three newly-announced characaters for Shadow Hearts 3.

"Mao loves to drink, and shamelessly takes advantage of her being a cat to ignore the Prohibition laws. In a fight, Mao is a Drunken Master, and the drunker she is, the more deadly she becomes."

"Hildegarde Valentine...Her ability in battle is Calorie Counting. Depending on how many calories she has consumed, she can transform into various shapes. Some of them might even do something to change her generally bratty, self-centered, and violent personality." And, she's a vampire.

I love the game already slywink
6343  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo E3 lineup (Mario & Luigi 2!) on: May 15, 2005, 06:37:56 AM
How odd - I didn't notice the typo and glossed right over the '06.  I can't see GI making two mistakes like that (and using '06 twice) but I can't see anyone going to the trouble of making a realistic-looking fake that only announces a bunch of games that are known (or heavily rumored) to be in production and a subtitle.
6344  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Nintendo E3 lineup (Mario & Luigi 2!) on: May 14, 2005, 08:56:09 PM
As seen on the front page of CG, Nintendo will be showing a sequel to the excellent Mario & Luigi : Superstar Saga (now for the DS) at E3.  I figured I'd eventually get a DS to play Final Fantasy 3, but this seals it.  The original M&L was so full of imaginative ideas, I can only imagine what they're going to come up with using the DS.  Also, there's a listing for a Mario soccer game, joining Mario Baseball and Mario Basketball, as well as a full-fledged Pokemon RPG for the Gamecube.
6345  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox RPG's - the future just got **much** brighter.... on: May 14, 2005, 10:46:37 AM
RPGFan and RPGamer have some new details regarding Blue Dragon and the newly-unveiled second game, Lost Odyssey.
6346  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Atlus E3 lineup on: May 13, 2005, 06:52:37 PM
Worthplaying has details and screens for the games.
6347  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FF7 : Advent Children coming September 14 on: May 13, 2005, 07:37:13 AM
According to Gamespot the Final Fantasy 7 sequel movie will be released simultaneously in the US and Japan on September 14.
6348  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Who all is excited about the big PS3 unveiling?! on: May 13, 2005, 01:49:25 AM
I doubt we'll hear much about about either the PS3 or Revolution at E3.  Both Sony and Nintendo will be concentrating on their handhelds.  I wouldn't be surprised at a big PS3 unveiling in November, just ahead of the XBox 360 launch, though.
6349  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rise of Nations 2 on: May 10, 2005, 06:34:02 PM
It's called Rise of Legends and Worthplaying has details and some very nice screenshots.
6350  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Shadow Hearts Covenant - VERY Impressed on: May 10, 2005, 02:02:41 AM
"The ability to get detailed descriptions and artwork for every single item in your inventory is a huge bonus. Lots of great writing and factoids in these entries."
I love when games include things like this.  It's obvious the developers put a great deal of care and heart into the game, as did whoever did the fantastic localization.
6351  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rumored XBox 360 specs on: May 10, 2005, 01:59:45 AM
Didn't one of the official-looking pictures show that the hard drive is 40 GB rather than 20?  Also, I'd be surprised if the two versions (if there are two versions) were only $60 apart.  Why would anyone buy the non-hard drive version?  The 64 MB memory cards would probably cost $30 or so, and if you bought two, you'd equal the $360 price and only have 128 MB.
6352  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / atelier iris pre-order... on: May 09, 2005, 03:47:48 AM
The Gamestop listing doesn't mention the soundtrack.  Was it added when you went to check out?  Normally, I'd love to get the free bonus, but the $20 rebate (from Phantom Dust) that I was going to use isn't useable on games with free premiums.
6353  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Agetec E3 lineup - Wild ARMs F and PoPoLoCrois on: May 08, 2005, 04:36:52 AM
I think it's French for "Why is ever other letter capitalized?" slywink
6354  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Agetec E3 lineup - Wild ARMs F and PoPoLoCrois on: May 07, 2005, 09:06:51 AM
IGN has posted a listing of the games that Agetec will be showing at E3.  Thankfully, Wild ARMs Alter Code F is on the list, since the delays had me worried they were going to drop it.  Also, the formerly Japan-only RPG series PoPoLoCrois is headed to the US on the PSP.
6355  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / atelier iris pre-order... on: May 07, 2005, 02:02:48 AM
According to this news item at RPGamer the soundtrack is only for the first 500 who preorder directly from NIS.  The mini strategy guide code is for all preorders from them, but will also be available to everyone two weeks after the game is released.
6356  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Snowblind gets Dark Alliance rights on: May 05, 2005, 12:36:08 AM
Hopefully, having to create their own world and characters will help them to create a more interesting game.  I loved the original Dark Alliance, but found both BGDA2 and CoN got boring pretty fast.  I hope they find a way to spice up the formula somehow.
6357  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Sigma Star Saga Preview on: May 04, 2005, 05:45:10 AM
Gamespy has a preview for the upcoming (and really cool-looking) Sigma Star Saga, Namco's sidescrolling space-shooter/RPG.
6358  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Indigo Prophecy Preview on: May 04, 2005, 05:42:14 AM
Gamespot has a pre-E3 preview of the upcoming adventure game Indigo Prophecy.  I'm really looking forward to this game - everything about it seems unique and intriguing.
6359  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Shadow Hearts Covenant - VERY Impressed on: May 03, 2005, 09:35:29 AM
Returning to areas works in both games.  Many areas you return to in Covenant will lead to items that give your characters abilities, such as Karin's music or wolves for Blanca to fight.  There are also some fun ongoing sidequests, such as Solomon's Key, trading items, and the treasure hunt.
6360  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Shadow Hearts Covenant - VERY Impressed on: May 03, 2005, 06:30:40 AM
" Yuri can only have three fusion monsters equipped at a time and the amount of sanity it takes to summon one means he will likely only use one per battle."
They changed this for the sequel.  In Covenant, there's no SP cost to fuse. You lose a few SP per round while fused, so you can switch between any fusion you have acquired (they no longer have to be equipped) and there's no cost (SP or turn-wise) to do so.  It's a very nice change, although I like the way you acquired new fusions better in the first game.

As for sidequests, there's kind of a theme to getting bonus/sidequest items.  Always return to areas you've cleared out, as you'll usually find something new there.  This is especially true of rooms in which you fight bosses.  There's usually an item in them you can't get on your first visit because you enter the cutscene/boss battle as soon as you enter the room.
