6841  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Soooo... are we getting a cel-shaded "Wind Waker 2" on: June 15, 2004, 04:02:10 PM
I think all Nintendo ever said was that Wind Waker 2 would use the same engine as the first, and people naturally assumed that meant cel-shaded.
6842  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Sudeki [Xbox] on: June 08, 2004, 03:26:55 AM
It looks like it's going to be in the vein of Summoner 2, with the characters having different abilities they need to use.  I also really like what I've seen of the art style, and what I can tell from the videos, the combat looks good too.  If it does make it out July 13, it's going to be an expensive day for me, with Tales of Symphonia coming out too.
6843  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Everything Bioware creates RULEZ! on: June 07, 2004, 06:28:27 PM
"Jade Empire isn't on my want list, mostly because I'm not a big fan of samurais and ninjas."

I'm not sure if you just mean it's the Asian theme in general you don't like, but if it's just samurais and ninjas, Jade Empire doesn't have either.  Jade Empire is based on Chinese myths and legends, while those are Japanese.  While there are a lot of games based on Japan, China hasn't been used much, so it should provide an interesting setting.
6844  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Malice released and no one cares on: June 03, 2004, 06:20:41 PM
I think Malice was supposed to feature the voice of Gwen Stefani as the main character and music by No Doubt.  I wonder if that was dropped.
6845  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Fate of Ages - new XBox RPG on: June 03, 2004, 09:08:11 AM
Worthplaying has the first details and screenshots of the newly announced XBox RPG Fate of Ages - not to be confused with the PC game 'Aura: Fate of the Ages' (I smell a lawsuit slywink).
6846  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / True Fantasy Live Online cancelled! on: June 03, 2004, 08:52:53 AM
Microsoft has announced that it has cancelled the XBox MMORPG True Fantasy Live Online, which was in development by Level 5, makers of the Dark Cloud series and the upcoming Dragon Quest 8.
6847  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Game Discussion: Nintendo's Classic Game GBA Releases on: June 02, 2004, 01:19:37 AM
Take a look at the Japanese sales chart at 1Up - 10 of the top 20 overall games are these GBA rereleases, and I would assume they were at least the equivalent of $20 or more there.  They must think they will sell well at that price in the US, but I don't see that happening.
6848  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [Xbox] Fable coming soon, quotes from preview on: June 01, 2004, 06:27:15 PM
Making the game more structured is probably a good thing in the long run.  From everything I've seen, it's still going to be an open-ended, do-watch-you-want-game with a reactive world.  Reining in some of the more ambitious elements will probably allow them to make the game itself better, and then they can integrate those elements into the eventual sequel.  

Game Informer has a narrated (by Molyneux) walkthrough of the early part of the game and a quest.
6849  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New Atlus strategy RPG on: May 31, 2004, 04:16:29 AM
RPGFan has some early details on StellaDeus, a new strategy RPG from Atlus.
6850  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Gladius... on: May 25, 2004, 06:28:47 PM
I loved the timed button press-based combat mechanics.    I wish more games would use it, as it adds a more hands-on element to the turn-based gameplay.
6851  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / What do you do when... on: May 24, 2004, 06:55:19 PM
Luckily, I save everything, so I have a ton of those America Online DVD cases they used to send their trial CDs in.

"I have purchased quite a few used games that have crappy cases, plus the EB/Gamestop pricetags won't come off."
Try Goo Gone.  I peel off what I can, and then put some Goo Gone on it, let it soak, and then the price tag usually comes right off.
6852  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Free Disgaea mini-art book on: May 21, 2004, 06:10:08 AM
Details.  I'm not sure if this means that you have to have a registration card from the new run of copies or not.  I bought mine used, but I'll have to check if the card is still in the case.
6853  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Where will/did you pre-order Halo2? on: May 21, 2004, 02:24:04 AM
"No reason to. There will be boatloads of that title guaranteed."

I think there were people who had trouble finding Vice City on release day because stores were selling out.  Unless you're counting on a Best Buy sale where you can price match within 30 days, you might as well preorder.
6854  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / If this is true, say goodbye to ESPN NFL 2k whatever. on: May 19, 2004, 05:58:03 AM
That number doesn't make sense either.  I'm sure EA makes lots of money on the Madden franchise, but to pay $250 million a year just for a license?  Even if they made pure profit from each game, they'd have to sell 5 million copies just to break even on the cost of the license alone.
6855  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Final Fantasy XII battle info on: May 18, 2004, 06:43:16 PM
"Now that I see XII is some kind of .Hack style MMO"

I have no idea where the writer came up with that.  I don't see anything in FF12 that bears any resemblance to MMORPG games or .hack.  The producer did state FFXI as an inspiration, but only in the fact that enemies are visible on-screen and your character model changes when you equip different items.  From the previews and videos I've seen, the combat looks very similar to KoTOR, which was very well done.  The combat is a pretty big change, but this game is still classic Final Fantasy.  FFX is the best game of all time in my opinion, but I'm very excited to see what they do with FF12.
6856  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Champions of Norrath ending on: May 18, 2004, 06:22:39 PM
Unfortunately, the stories in both were so poor, I couldn't care less what happens in the next game.  They're action-RPGs, so they don't have to have involved stories, but something other than "There's a bad guy.  Kill him." would be nice.  I'm really hoping Jade Empire is the start of a new era for action-RPGs.
6857  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Champions of Norrath ending on: May 18, 2004, 10:09:58 AM
I finished BGDA2 not long ago, and thought the ending was terrible.  A few days ago, I finished Champions of Norrath, and its ending makes BGDA2's look like FFX.  After hacking my way through tons of monsters, dying ,many times, and facing the (surprisingly easy) final boss, all I get is a one minute voiceover?
6858  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Squenix announces Brave Fencer Musashi 2 + DS game on: May 18, 2004, 09:45:17 AM
The DS game Square Enix announced at E3 was called Egg Hunters (I think) and is some sort of RPG.  They also announced plans for a new FF Crystal Chronicles game and a new Dragon Warrior Monsters game for the DS.
6859  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xenosaga Episode II - Jenseits von Gut und Bose on: May 17, 2004, 04:24:21 PM
The story picks up where the first game left off, so I would think so.  There might be a recap of the events in the first game either in-game or in the manual, though.
6860  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Xenosaga Episode II - Jenseits von Gut und Bose on: May 14, 2004, 07:18:35 AM
The trailer is amazing, especially the end.  It looks like there will be a nice variety of settings this time too.
6861  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New Zelda Game - Old Link (Circa SpaceWorld years ago) on: May 13, 2004, 07:52:11 AM
According to Game Informer, Wind Waker 2 has been dropped in favor of this new game.  Apparently, they kept referring to WW2 so people wouldn't be expecting the announcement of the new game.
6862  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Final Fantasy XII battle info on: May 13, 2004, 06:50:30 AM
Gamespot has a hands-on preview of FF12, and it contains the first details on the battle system. It looks like they're changing a lot. No random battles, no separate battle screen, maneuverable characters, and pausable real-time combat.
6863  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / New Zelda Game - Old Link (Circa SpaceWorld years ago) on: May 11, 2004, 11:57:00 PM
As late as a few months ago, the producer of Wind Waker said they were working on Wind Waker 2 with the same graphics engine.  I doubt they scrapped that game, so I would assume they're making both.
6864  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Squenix announces Brave Fencer Musashi 2 + DS game on: May 11, 2004, 06:32:24 AM
Square Enix has announced that they are working on a sequel to the PSOne action-RPG Brave Fencer Musashi.  1Up has details and screenshots.  

Also, SE announced that they will have a Nintendo DS game playable at E3.  I doubt it, but it would be great if it were the rumored port of Actraiser, perhaps with the action stage on one screen, and the town building on the other?
6865  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Fire Emblem - Cubed! on: May 10, 2004, 05:32:46 AM
Here's some info on Tales of Rebirth.  It will be a PS2 exclusive and use the beautiful 2D backgrounds used in the earlier games in the series.  Presumably, it will feature the same kind of action-oriented battles.  Namco has already trademarked the named in the US, so it looks like it'll be localized.
6866  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / KoTOR 2 to be announced today on: May 09, 2004, 06:47:08 AM
Gamespot has a posted a new preview, with a few new bits of info.
6867  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Fire Emblem - Cubed! on: May 09, 2004, 06:25:56 AM
"And it's about time the Gamecube got a second RPG... "
Gamecube waited a long time to get going, but it's ramping up its RPG library nicely.  This year, we'll have Tales of Symphonia, Baten Kaitos, Paper Mario 2, and Fire Emblem for the Cube, and I'm really hoping Golden Sun for the GCN will be a surprise announcemnet at E3.  Camelot must have been doing something other than Mario Tennis all this time.
6868  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Champions : Return to Arms preview on: May 08, 2004, 06:24:22 AM
IGN has a  preview of the sequel to Champions of Norrath, along with some new movies.  The new medal system sounds like fun, and it'll be interesting to see what kinds of unlockables they offer.
6869  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / KoTOR 2 to be announced today on: May 04, 2004, 06:29:17 PM
I would have waited until the official announcement to post this, but this poster is too cool not to show.
