  • Tales of Symphonia's in my GC at the moment, so I guess that's the one of the day.. way too many others going on though, including the final bosses of Xenosaga and La Pucelle, and being 25% through Nocturne and Phantom Brave.

  • Hero: Alex, Lunar: The Silver Star Villain: "Ghaleon", Lunar: The Silver Star Sega CD versions naturally. Honorable mentions.. Terra/Kefka.

  • I'm only a couple hours into it, but I'm loving it so far.. doesn't seem that hardcore yet, though I'm sure that'll happen later. The multiple branch thing'll result in multiple load/reloads from me, that's for sure. Here's a question.. not that …
  • Bought it as soon as I heard it was out(talk about with a whimper instead of a bang..); haven't touched it yet thanks to Technic Beat. Really REALLY want to though.. and I reserved the deluxe, so that's what I bought. Worth every penny, too.

    Got it, adore it.. easily worth the wait. It's like the story of Persona mixed with t…
  • Is The Velvet Room in any of the SMT games, or is that a Persona-only thing? I'll miss the pianist and Igor if not..
  • I imagine, if it's anything like Persona, that it has a pretty open-ended flow to it. (I've never played an SMT, but I imagine Persona is as close to it as it gets.) The battles don't start with fighting outright in a Persona game, you first have…
  • bhs, you aren't fooling anyone. Even I know SMT and Persona is basically comparable to the chicken and its egg. (I don't regrettably know first hand, but I will soon enough.) ..you know more about the games than anyone on this forum does, I'd wa…
  • Tragically never even heard of Soul Blazer.. but I love IoG and Terranigma.. mostly for the fun gameplay, but something about IoG's story really hits me too. Great ending, also. Sort of reminded me of Chrono Cross'.. the whole love is timeless thing…
  • Thanks a million.. this might take a while, but it'll be worth it. ..I'll keep crossing my fingers for localizations of SMT 3 and Fire/Ice in the meanwhile too.. in Demi Kids Light/DarkComment by cj_iwakuraFebruary 2004

  • Agreed... and the story, believe it or not, gets better too. It actually keeps your interest. And fusing/collecting demons becomes INSANELY addictive.. I'm at 203 in Light now, by the way. I'll get back to Dark eventually.. but Light's my focus …
  • SFIII is very strategy-RPG esque, I think.. Shining The Holy Ark is very traditional, on the other hand.. don't know much about the first two, but I'm sure they're fun.
  • That's the sentiment of almost everyone I've spoken to on it.. but having just beaten it a day ago, I still think it was one of the most fun and innovative RPGs I've played in a while.. the story was cool, too. The resolution was a little weak, but …
  • Best opening ever: either Wild ARMs 1 or Chrono Cross.. just.. wow. Emotional: ..probably the piano ballad played during "Quark's murder/Ghaleon's betrayal" in the original Lunar.. no more moving 1:30 track has ever been composed. Melodies of Lif…

  • Alright, I should first note that I think I have no ground whatsoever on which to comment on anything modern Zelda: I've played THREE of the games, and they were all on consols that ended in NES; so I'm clearly way out of date on my information. …
  • In a vague order of some sort(recollection): Dragon Warrior, The Legend of Zelda I, Legend of Zelda II, Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past, Breath of Fire III, Robotech(LONG time ago..), Final Fantasy, Lunar: The Silver Star, Lunar: Eternal Blue, …
  • Ys I and II came out for the Turbo Duo(I THINK they were localized..) and Ys III was definetly out for the SNES. It's the only one I ever played, too.. (maybe it was for another system as well?) Is it possible Working Designs might re-release Gro…
  • Atlus have officially redeemed themselves in my eyes for this.. not ONE but TWO Megami Tensei games hitting the shores.. it's a far cry from bringing over everything we missed, but it's a dang good start. Better start making those reserves now. :)
  • Favorite introduction: Wild ARMs 1 (Honorable mention: Chrono Cross) Final boss: FFX (h.m.: OWA) Misc.: One Who Bares His Fangs At Gods, Xenogears Romantic: Elly + Fei's theme, Xenogears (H.m.: Lucia's theme, Lunar: EB([SCD vers.]) Battle: Alb…
  • I will try Xtreme eventually.. maybe when it's $9.99. If only on general principle of my being a Grandia fan. On a totally unrelated note, is The Bouncer worth getting? I've had my eye on it for a while, but I'm not sure if it merits owning..

  • I've yet to meet a single person who says otherwise. ..that can't be good.

  • Final Fantasy VIII The only crew with any merit in that game was Laguna's. Maybe they should remake it a la VII and just remove Squall and company. ..well, they can keep Quistis. Grandia I The villains had their moments, but overall, the cast …
  • Did you try contacting Atlus via their webpage?

  • Grandia 1: PS(Saturn in Japan, I think) Grandia 2: Dreamcast and PS2; do yourself a favor and get the Dreamcast version. Grandia Xtreme: PS2. The battles.. well, they're pretty standard in terms of setup; turn-based style, but it gets more comp…
