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.

I believed I knew what Ghaleon was speaking of when he uttered the phrase, but out of most all the pop culture references the LUNAR series makes this one is quite possibly not only the one that will be lost to time but also quite possibly immediately mis-interpreted even at the time of it's inceptio...

Re: First impressions of Eternal Blue

I - possibly foolishly - also owned a Genesis/Sega CD (Model 2)/32X combo. I was the only person that I can recall knowing that actually had the setup. Knew people that had variations of at least two, but not all three. I only owned three games on the 32X - Doom, Star Wars Arcade, and Virtua Racing ...

Re: Forbidden Forest?

You're not supposed to "fight" the monsters in the Forbidden Forest, per say. When Alex becomes Dragonmaster (more specifically when you obtain the Dragon Armor item) you receive the "Dragon Grief" spell. This spell immediately kills all enemies on-screen. You're supposed to use ...

Re: Are Lunar 1 and 2 (PS1) actually difficult RPGs?

I feel that both LUNARs on the PS1 were (relatively) easy for me because I owned and had beaten both of the original games on the Sega CD; I for the most part knew what to expect story-wise and only had to accommodate for the PS1-specific changes. If anything though, even without the Sega CD experie...

Re: Going through EBC now; my thoughts on it so far

I know you're playing EBC complete, and I don't know if you've played the original Silver Star or original Eternal Blue on the Sega CD, but one of my more enjoyable character development sets was with how the heroine (Lucia) in EB was handled much better - at least in my opinion - than TSS' heroine ...

Re: Orginal names?

I remember the issues with seeing Phaidy as the name for Quark which caused a stir. I thought it was a bit weird, but I've kind of always had the Shakespearian mindset of "What's in a name?" It was nice to see some more last names start to pop up other than Ausa and Al Kirk. More surprisin...

Re: Small thing I noticed with the pre-release Lunar TSS sho

With an early AV production game for a console like LUNAR, such a thing as having items that were lifted directly from conceptual art and used in-game is not strange. The ultimate thing this did was save production costs. One of the most glaring examples is in two of the promotional images created f...

Re: More of a general question

The internal memory on the Sega CD model 2 console carries roughly 122 blocks of memory. Lunar Eternal Blue takes up 14 of those and the Silver Star takes up 40 (!). You can run out of memory quick with most games. Sega thankfully made an official backup RAM cartridge for the console. It carries rou...

Re: Lunar Guidebook Scans

Yeah I walked into my local Electronics Boutique and threw down $20 for it brand new. Now that I think about it I do remember now that I didn't get it the day I got EBC on release day but rather picked up the book on a subsequent visit.
