Re: What's your favorite turn-based NON-Lunar RPG?

Final Fantasy 4 (or "2", as back when it was new that's the only one I knew) would rank up there pretty high for me and probably be my number 1. I had played a few RPGs prior but the original SNES release of FF4("2") was one of the major games that got me into playing RPGs. The f...

Re: Least favorite Lunar 1 or Lunar 2 character

I'm sure I'll be corrected on this but I'm pretty sure that in the novel (right?) for LUNAR TSS Kyle was given a more prominent role and appears to the 'party' much earlier on. I want to say he was some sort of pirate, which would reinforce Mel's acceptance of him and vise versa as they would have c...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

You know I remember at lot of the criticisms of V during the time and I really never thought of it being a bad game either. One personal thing I enjoyed about it was even in the later PS2 era a lot of RPGs still had the "change-over-to-battle-setting" -type fighting for 3D era games, and G...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I really loved Growlanser II and III the first time I played through it. I always seemed to enjoy II quite a bit more just for the aforementioned political storylines that play out and Charlone is one of my favorite Urushihara characters (if the game would have just given me Charlone, Riviera, and A...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I just finished Tales of Berseria in a little over 40 hours. I have to say it exceeded my expectation a bit and the English voice-acting work is surprisingly VERY good; I'd even tier it above Persona 5's and FFXV's voice work. I don't know if I'm going to deal with the NG+ stuff though. This was act...

Re: My LUNAR Collection

Yeah I've been conscious of that. Thankfully my den gets hardly any natural light. Off to the left of this is the sliding doors leading out to our patio (it's a split level home with the "den" being actually a basement). The only other natural light is a window to the right of all of this ...

My LUNAR Collection

I mentioned it in a prior thread but now that I've gotten a larger house with a gaming den area I managed to finally put up a small display of all my LUNAR games. I've been wanting to do this for I guess ever now but it's only taken oh the later portion of my 30s to get into a large enough house whe...

Re: Lunar Shirt and Poster Auctions

Wow! Those posters sold for a good chunk of change.

The EB poster was $6.95 back in the day, and if you sent the mail in card from the TSSC strategy guide you got the TSSC one for free sans like $3 S&H.

There's a lot of stuff I regret not buying from those WD pamphlets back in the day....

Tokyo Xanadu ex+ currently. Have you played Trails of Cold Steel? I'm wondering how Xandau ex+ compares to Nihon Falcom's other releases such as that. I've read that Xandau ex+ is basically a "modern" Trails of Cold Steel. I don't know if I'm going to go get it right away and may wait for...

The Original SEGA CD LUNAR Strategy Guides

I'll preface this with somewhat of a back story. Earlier this year I moved into a much larger house than I had been living in. As part of my decor to decorate the den/office/game room I now have a nice small shelf section that displays all of my LUNAR material stretching back to the SEGA CD releases...

Re: Saturn translation [in progress!]

This is extraordinary. There's a lot of dedication going on here. I always knew there were a good chunk of technical changes in relation to the PS1 release but it's good to see them explained and how you'll work around them. Are you planning on any work outside of LUNAR for the Sega Saturn? I'm not ...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

Two newest titles I picked up are Gran Turismo Sport & Senran Kagura Peach Beach Splash for the PS4. Games on completely opposite sides of the spectrum. I was in the closed beta for GT Sport and enjoyed it. Haven't even played anything Senran Kagura prior but I feel like if I don't support these...

Re: What Would You Like To Learn More Of?

Back when I first played Eternal Blue - the original Sega CD release before the PS1 remakes - having proceeded some distance into the game and coming to the iced Caldor Isle I just assumed that the area that Hiro, Gwyn, and Ruby live in is likely remnants of The Frontier. That reasoning is not entir...

Re: Least favorite Lunar 1 or Lunar 2 character

I didn't actually vote on the poll, but is it wrong that one of my most hated LUNAR characters was Luna in the original TSS? Playing through TSS I didn't really feel anything for her as a character. She's barely with you in the party, and while I'm like "yeah I know the party has to rescue her ...

Re: Fastest Game Time

My very first play through of TSSC was right around 32 hours. I believe having played both TSS and EB on the Sega CD games prior I kind of knew what to expect. My quickest play through last time I pulled the memory cards out was 19 hours but it's be YEARS since I've played through TSSC so I dunno if...

Re: Frustrated with retro gaming prices....especially regarding the Sega Saturn

I still have my second Sega Saturn console I bought. I had to buy a second one as the one I originally bought when the console released in the US killed over in the later 90s. The three big games I kept were Dragon Force, Albert Odyssey, and Magic Knight Rayearth - all Working Designs games and all ...

Re: New futon for my nerd cave (retro video game room)

That's similar to what I added to my game room; not a futon per say but a pull out couch. I have a finished basement that serves as a "den" and that's where I put it. We actually lived in a three bedroom house for a while and found that after we had our child having one room designated as ...

Re: My almost 100% complete Lunar game collection

Impressive. I don't even want to fathom what it costs nowadays to get CIB copies of LUNAR, especially the Sega CD versions (I'm staring at my $5 paid for Silver Star CIB back near 20 years ago...). Yeah the PC version of Silver Star Story would be impressive if you could get it CIB. I don't know how...

Re: Persona 5

Since no one has responded I'll give my thoughts... I bought the PS4 special edition the day it came out; all $97 for it. I'm a sucker for pack-ins. It's by far the largest packaged game I believe I've ever purchased. It's nearly double the size of the Catherine special edition and that was a huge p...

Re: The Artbooks - Updated!

Thanks for updating this. The older official artbook is utterly fascinating to me with Kubooka's sketchings, especially of the Silver Star cast. I like seeing this sort of conceptual artwork and wish there was more that existed for LUNAR.
