6401  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wild ARMs : Alter Code F coming Nov. 15 on: October 29, 2005, 02:12:25 AM
From what I've read about the original WA and what I've played of WA2, the wild west thing wasn't a big part of the game.  There are elements of a western setting, but also a heavy amount of standard console RPG settings.  Wild ARMs 3 had much more of a western setting, while it looks like WA4 will have very little.
6402  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wild ARMs : Alter Code F coming Nov. 15 on: October 28, 2005, 11:03:58 AM
I don't think there's much chance we'll see Magna Carta on the 8th.  Atlus has "winter" listed on their website, and they haven't said anything about a release date other than that.
6403  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wild ARMs : Alter Code F coming Nov. 15 on: October 28, 2005, 09:18:55 AM
RPGamer has the news that Agetec has announced the release date for Wild ARMs : Alter Code F, a remake of the original Wild ARMs for the PSOne.  I love the Wild ARMs series mix of traditional RPG gameplay and heavy use of puzzles, and I never got a chance to play the original.  November 15 is going to be quite a day - Wild ARMs, Dragon Quest 8, and the Final Fantasy XII demo  drool
6404  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Growlanser 5 announced on: October 28, 2005, 08:46:21 AM
1Up has the first details on Growlanser 5, a strategy RPG for the PS2.  Growlanser 2 and 3 were released in the US as Growlanser Generations, and I'm playing through 2 now and enjoying it.  Working Designs brought Generations to the US, but hopefully Atlus themselves will bring 5 over, since they're publishing the game in Japan.
6405  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Gladius] - Thanks Dafones! on: October 25, 2005, 10:31:29 PM
The upcoming Lord of The Rings : Tactics and the GBA version of LoTR : The Third Age are some other western-developed SRPGs.
6406  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / stubbs the zombie? on: October 25, 2005, 09:38:20 PM
You're right.  That's what I get for having 10 tabs open in Firefox all the time, and switching back and forth between news stories and forum postings slywink
6407  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / stubbs the zombie? on: October 25, 2005, 07:49:53 PM
They're making a computer-animated primetime show based on the game, apparently to air on Fox.
6408  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PS2]Sly Cooper/Jak&Daxter/Ratchet &Clank-which ones on: October 25, 2005, 07:45:18 PM
"Too bad they are all so short. Max 10hours for 2 and 3." (Ratchet & Clank)
Maybe if you just do what's required, but there's a lot of optional stuff to do.  My final time with Going Commando was over 40 hours, and I didn't even get everything.  You can also play through both games a second time in challenge mode, where enemies are tougher, but you can upgrade your weapons further.
6409  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest VIII ship date change . . . on: October 25, 2005, 07:28:33 AM
Check out the "Official Movie 1" here for a sample of the new orchestrated music.  Also, Gamespy has posted a great preview  that does a great job of explaining the appeal of the DQ series.
6410  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dragon Quest VIII ship date change . . . on: October 25, 2005, 05:23:24 AM
Great news!  SquareEnix also released some nice new screenshots to commemorate the occasion - here.
6411  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PS2]Sly Cooper/Jak&Daxter/Ratchet &Clank-which ones on: October 23, 2005, 11:23:07 PM
The Jak series is the most storyline-intensive (especially 2 and 3), so it would be best to play those in order.  The Slys and R&Cs also have continuing elements in them, so you'll enjoy them more if you play them in order, and they're all worth playing.
6412  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Shining Force Neo looking good on: October 22, 2005, 01:19:21 AM
"I don't want to believe all of the negativity that surrounds that game. People that have played it say that it's OK but the battle system is messed."
What have you heard?  The battle system sounds like a cross between the ones in Star Ocean 3 and Shadow Hearts, both of which I loved.  The only review I've seen (at GameFAQs) gave the game 9/10.

I'm not sure about the November 8 release date.  The Atlus website says "Winter" and November isn't winter.  If it's going to make that date, the official website should be unveiled soon.
6413  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FATE - new patch and textures mod on: October 21, 2005, 07:03:39 PM
RPGDot has news of a new patch and a mod that reworks the original floor textures and adds some new ones.  I tried the textures mod, and the new level I've seen looks very nice, and it's good to have a little more variety in the levels.
6414  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Shining Force Neo looking good on: October 21, 2005, 06:44:14 PM
I'll be getting it eventually, but given next month's 3-week RPG extravaganza (Magna Carta on the 8th, Wild ARMs Alter Code F on the 15th, and Dragon Quest 8 on the 22nd, all of which I have preordered), it's going to have to wait.
6415  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Any News on any future Buffy Games? on: October 21, 2005, 06:38:07 PM
The only way I can see them making another game in the series is if they do a new TV show in the Buffyverse or a movie, both of which are unlikely.
6416  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.
6417  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.
6418  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.
6419  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.
6420  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.
6421  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.
6422  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
6423  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.
6424  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.
6425  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.
6426  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
6427  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.
6428  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.
6429  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.
6430  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.
6431  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.
6432  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.
6433  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.
6434  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.
6435  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.
6436  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.
6437  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).
6438  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.
6439  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.
6440  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?
