6601  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xbox 360 - Design seen? on: April 13, 2005, 06:30:19 PM
It sounded a little goofy at first, but XBox 360 has really grown on me, and I think it's almost certain that is the final name.  As for being white, I just can't see it.  Ugly green and black is synonymous with the XBox, and I can't see them dumping something that is so closely tied to them.
6602  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [ps2] SRPG fans UNITE! Stella Deus (4/26) on: April 13, 2005, 07:17:12 AM
IGN has just posted a preview of the game.
6603  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Laxius Power - massive, freeware console RPG on: April 12, 2005, 06:42:23 PM
I'm really sorry about that - with Firefox, I didn't get any popups.  I removed the link in my first post, since the game is widely available from other sites.
6604  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Tales of Legendia Coming on: April 12, 2005, 06:33:08 PM
This is great news, but since they're announcing Legendia first, it looks like they're skipping over bringing Tales of Rebirth to the US.  That's a shame, as it's supposed to be a very good game.  Hopefully, someone else will pick it up for US release (if Namco would allow that) or we'll see it on a handheld.
6605  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Laxius Power - massive, freeware console RPG on: April 12, 2005, 07:14:05 AM
Technically, this is about a PC game, but the game is very much a console-style RPG, so I figured it would be of most interest to console gamers.
The developers have released the final chapter in the Laxius Power saga, a series of 3 freeware "old-school" console-style RPGs.  The feature list (especially for part 3) looks incredible and there's supposed to be 200-300 hours of gameplay between the 3 games  :shock:  There's also supposed to be some "adult" content in the form of nudity.  A Google search for "Laxius Power" will lead to many shareware site download links.
6606  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The anything BUT Jade Empire discussion thread on: April 11, 2005, 10:24:52 AM
Gamespy has posted their review - 5/5.  I have a feeling we'll be seeing a lot of perfect or near-perfect scores for this game.
6607  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Radiata Stories by Sqaure Enix available on Gamestop on: April 11, 2005, 06:59:40 AM
It's a humorous action-RPG from the makers of the excellent Star Ocean : Til The End of Time.  IGN has a hands-on preview here.
6608  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Radiata Stories by Sqaure Enix available on Gamestop on: April 11, 2005, 04:40:12 AM
I'm glad Square Enix is stepping up their US releases.  Even the remake Romancing SaGa : Minstrel Song looks like it's coming to the US.
6609  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Phantasy Star Universe details on: April 08, 2005, 08:50:23 AM
IGN has some details and the confirmation that Phantasy Star Universe will be released in the US (I really wish Square Enix were this forthcoming with their US release confirmations.)  Also, the rumors were right - the game will have both an offline, story-driven mode, as well as an online mode, presumably similar to the PSO games.
6610  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / The anything BUT Jade Empire discussion thread on: April 08, 2005, 05:56:34 AM
Bioware has definitely dropped hints about a PC release, but haven't officially confirmed anything.
6611  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Kingdom Hearts- Any Way to Disable Subtitles? on: April 08, 2005, 05:53:36 AM
No, and I find it very annoying as well.  Xenosaga is the same way, as well as Digital Devil Saga.  I have to avert my eyes from the bottom of the screen to avoid reading the subtitles before they're spoken.  I got used to it eventually, but I have no idea why there isn't an option to shut them off like there is in pretty much every other game.
6612  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What has happened to Square? on: April 08, 2005, 05:51:42 AM
There was a DQ5 remake released in Japan, and I think it's possible that it will be released on the PS2 or the PSP in the US someday.  DQ4 is kind of stuck in-between, as its PSOne remake was cancelled for the US when the company localizing it went out of business.  It would be a good fit for the DS.  If DQ8 is as successful as I think it will be, I'm sure Square Enix won't let the previous entries go to waste, especially given the long gaps between each DQ release.
6613  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga Impressions! (pg. 2) on: April 07, 2005, 06:59:19 PM
I played for about an hour last night, and I'm really enjoying it.  The opening cutscene is incredible, and the cool art style looks even better in motion than in screenshots.  The great dungeon automapping returns from Nocturne, and really helps in exploring the dungeon areas.  The voice acting is good, too, and thankfully, they appear to be unknown actors.  It looks like companies have finally realized there are other good voice actors in the world other than the usual suspects (Jennifer Hale, Cam Clarke, etc.)  They're very good at what they do, but it's distracting hearing the same voices in every game.
6614  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga Impressions! (pg. 2) on: April 07, 2005, 07:47:46 AM
Double Jump Books, who have done strategy guides for other Atlus games, passed on doing one for DDS, so it looks like there isn't going to be one.  There are a few FAQs at GameFAQs though.
6615  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Chrono Trigger 3? on: April 06, 2005, 10:10:18 PM
I'm guessing it's a late April Fools joke, or simply a fake.  I know Square Enix said they intend to release 1 game a month, but FF12, Kingdom Hearts 2, Grandia 3, and Chrono 3 all in one year seems like too much.  I hope it's true, but I doubt it is, especially since they just unveiled Grandia 3.
6616  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga Impressions! (pg. 2) on: April 06, 2005, 06:34:35 AM
We're on the second page already, with no impressions of the actual game.  Should we just make this the official impressions thread?  biggrin
6617  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga Impressions! (pg. 2) on: April 05, 2005, 11:41:38 PM
From what I've heard, DDS is good, but DDS2 is great.
6618  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / More Japanese RPGs coming to America on: April 05, 2005, 07:27:59 AM
According to RPGamer, Nippon Ichi America is teaming with the Japanese company Idea Factory to bring some of its previously Japan-only RPGs to the US.  I'm not familiar with the company or its games, but more RPGs is always good news to me smile
6619  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil Saga Impressions! (pg. 2) on: April 05, 2005, 07:07:34 AM
RPGFan has posted their review.  I like this quote -
"Digital Devil Saga is like Final Fantasy X, but the characters eat each other." slywink
I'll post some impressions when I get it Wednesday.
6620  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / 10.5 on: April 05, 2005, 06:56:31 AM
6621  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Doom 3 Impressions on: April 04, 2005, 11:14:38 AM
It sounds crazy to me since I can't play FPS games on consoles to save my life, but I know people who actually prefer console controllers to the mouse and keyboard setup.
6622  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS2 platformers rejoice! Ratchet 4, Jak X, and Sly 3! on: April 04, 2005, 12:11:07 AM
"I gotta get me a PS2 ..... unless the PS3 is for sure backwards compatable."
It is - with both PS2 and PSOne.
6623  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / PS2 platformers rejoice! Ratchet 4, Jak X, and Sly 3! on: April 03, 2005, 10:36:53 AM
"Supposedly Insomniac is already at work on a major FPS for PS3"
I really hope that's not true.  I'm okay with FPS games on the PC, but I find console FPS games pretty much unplayable.
6624  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / ape escape on the loose on: April 02, 2005, 04:12:49 AM
I haven't played this version, but in the other Ape Escapes, there were some monkeys who you couldn't get until you got a certain gadget later in the game.
6625  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / The Marshall Show...er... Alias 3/30 on: March 31, 2005, 08:01:29 AM
I've never really liked Marshall, but he's really grown on me this season, for some reason.
6626  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Flipnic, a pinball adventure, coming to PS2 on: March 31, 2005, 07:55:18 AM
Namco announced that they will be releasing Flipnic : Ultimate Pinball for the PS2 this summer, according to Worthplaying.  It sounds most like Adventure Pinball, which I really liked.  That makes the third game that Namco has announced that sound really cool to me - Sigma Star Saga, a side-scrolling space shooter/RPG, the XCom-like Rebelstar Tactical Command, and now this.
6627  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Rebelstar Tactical Command coming to GBA on: March 30, 2005, 10:09:46 PM
Namco has announced a turn-based strategy RPG for the GBA called Rebelstar Tactical Command.  Worthplaying has details and screenshots.

6628  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PSP] Tony Hawk on: March 30, 2005, 07:45:51 PM
Ports is the wrong word, but most of the launch titles are at least heavily based on existing games, rather than full-blown original creations like Lumines and Untold Legends.
6629  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Grandia 3 coming! on: March 30, 2005, 07:35:24 PM
It is indeed Grandia 3, and the screenshots look beautiful.  The battle system appears similar, as the screenshots show a circular gauge like the one in Xtreme.  Hopefully, we'll get a translation of the article soon.
6630  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Grandia 3 coming! on: March 30, 2005, 09:26:22 AM
Last week, the Japanese gaming magazine Famitsu Weekly had a teaser that they would have news of a major RPG from Square Enix this week.  According to a post at GameFAQs the game in question is Grandia 3!  There should be some confirmation tomorrow, presuming this is true.
6631  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FF 7 on PSP? on: March 30, 2005, 08:00:52 AM
"Square Enix is working on an action-RPG set in the FF7 world called Crisis Core."
To reply to my own post slywink I meant to add that Crisis Core is for the PSP.
6632  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [PSP] Tony Hawk on: March 30, 2005, 02:39:03 AM
"On a side rant, does it bother anyone else that some of these PSP games are selling for $50?"
I was shocked when I saw that PSP games were going to sell for $50.  It seems ridiculous to me, especially since many of the launch titles are simply ports of existing games.
6633  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / FF 7 on PSP? on: March 30, 2005, 02:33:38 AM
Square Enix is working on an action-RPG set in the FF7 world called Crisis Core.
6634  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Messed up PS2 disc - Any suggestions? on: March 28, 2005, 09:14:41 AM
Boiling DVDs only helps with certain problems.  I wouldn't take the chance that the problem your disc has is one of them.
6635  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / RPG Roundup on: March 25, 2005, 07:40:17 PM
Gamestop has May 24th now.  I think EB just put up the wrong date, since NIS America has said it'll be released in May since they announced it.
6636  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / RPG Roundup on: March 25, 2005, 12:09:08 PM
I'm still not sure about all the aspects of the game, but I don't think there are any strategy RPG elements in Atelier Iris.  It looks like a standard RPG with a  really involved item-combination system.  Wild ARMs 4 looks really good, too.  I like the jumping elements (especially if they're used in the puzzles the series is known for) and the battle system looks intriguing in the videos.  I hope we get a confirmation of a US release soon.
6637  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / RPG Roundup on: March 25, 2005, 10:03:28 AM
Lots of RPG news this week, since both Shining Force Neo and Wild ARMs 4 were released in Japan this week.  IGN has impressions of Shining Force Neo and Wild ARMs 4, as well as news about Phantasy Star Universe.  Also, Worthplaying has posted a preview and English screenshots for Atelier Iris : Eternal Mana.
6638  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Dungeon Lords Demo available tommorrow on: March 25, 2005, 04:08:07 AM
Great news.  I've really been looking forward to this one, so I hope it's turned out well.
6639  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Phantom Kingdom - "Sequel" to Disagea on: March 24, 2005, 11:24:53 AM
IGN has posted some impressions of the Japanese version.
6640  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Lunar game in the works for the DS on: March 24, 2005, 06:37:52 AM
I'd say they're most like the early Final Fantasy games, with your party on one side and the enemy on the other in turn-based battles.  They're best known for their nice and numerous anime cutscenes and endearing characters.  The graphics are simple SNES quality, but still charming.  They're definitely worth playing, and I see them fairly often at used game stores, so they're probably not that rare.
