  • In the past, I've said I'd prefer Square Enix to do a new game than another remake of a game I've already played. But given that their new games haven't actually been that good lately, I think I might change my mind on that.
  • I'm quite amazed that there's (so far) more discussion of advertising than patches in this topic. Sure, advertising is games can be annoying, especially if it's something obtrusive. But surely we can agree that skimping on debugging and shipping inc…

    Q U O T E in Konami Reveals Suikoden V Comment by Red XIV September 2005
  • III's battle system wasn't as good as I & II, but it at least still had 6 party members at a time. Only being able to use 4 at a time makes trying out everybody a real pain when there are dozens of playable characters.

  • I have to agree with the post on this subject over at the (still active, BTW) old RPGamer boards: with the main character being a member the Queendom of Falena (I'm sticking with the translation used in S2 for now), it should be a female. Sure, a qu…
  • *shakes head* I don't care that this is a cellphone game, the problem I have is that Square apparently would rather devote resources to milking FF7 that would be better used on making something new. And, of course, in the process, they've already…
  • I voted for crap. Aside from the fact that I'm unaware of any videogame-based movie that was better than semi-decent, I hate the idea of tacking on a continuation to a story that's already been completed. And in FF7's case, this involves brutally mu…
  • The level of ignorance in that last post is amazing. FF6 was, aside from a few steampunk locales, had every bit as much of a "middle ages feel" as FF4 & FF5, and no magic? I don't know what game you were playing, but it clearly wasn't FF6. Last …
  • I guess you could call me something of a born-again Dragon Quest fan. I loved the series back on the NES, but by the time DQ7 was about to come out in Japan, I was pretty disdainful of it. Then I played DQ5 & DQ6, and remembered why it was that …
  • Hmm, that's a tough call. FF5-9, CT, FFT, and SD3 all make my list of "Games that 0wn j00", but I can't really narrow it down any further. So that's an 8-way tie.
  • Well, if it weren't for the CD space issue, they could easily have done what I mentioned: make 4 versions of the ending FMV, and set the game up to display whichever one is appropriate. But like I said, that wouldn't work. I used to know how big tha…

    Actually, the first game to do it was Dragon Quest IV, for the Famicom/NES. It's …

    I'm talking about Millenia. Didn't she die like twice in that game? I don't even understand why …
  • You're both wrong. It's not a matter of opinion. The development team themselves have said it was rushed.
  • The problem with the 2nd disc is that, as others have mentioned, there simply isn't enough gameplay. Instead of getting to do things, we get to have Fei & Elly tell us what the characters we're allegedly playing the roles of did. And the worst p…

    That's why I prefer villains like Ghaleon to Kefka. They're more interesting…
  • So what game to think has good voice acting, if Grandia 2's is bad? Or are you one of those otakus who thinks that only Japanese actors can do good voice work? And yes, the battles were easy, but they make up for it by having superior gameplay th…
  • Boomerang, the reason that FF7 didn't have Vincent and Yuffie in the ending (calling them main characters is a bit of a stretch, BTW) is that there wasn't room for 4 different versions of the ending FMV (one with Yuffie, one with Vincent, one with b…
  • I'd have to go with Grandia 2, which had the misfortune of being on the Dreamcast, plus being released directly between FF9 & DQ7 in Japan (causing it to get overlooked, unsurprisingly). But the people who actually played it realize that it's a …
