Re: Last Anime?

The .hack games are better than SAO for me. I think what gets to me also is there's just so much focus on the harem aspect of SAO; it's really thrown into your face. Not that there's anything wrong with that, except it kind of "removes" yourself from the MMO aspect. It'd be like if a MMO-t...

Re: All The Lunar- Physical photos + Summary Post

Every time I see this referenced I"m fascinated by it simply because it seems like a true "product of it's time" but also something that had you given it to a LUNAR fan around Y2K they would have probably had a real blast. Does this mostly use the remakes assets? Like is there any new...

Re: Last Anime?

Rewatching Record of Lodoss War to satiate the lack of real Elves in modern anime (Deedlit<3). Anything with Japanese high school Elves or MMO Elves doesn't count. Crunchyroll got the recent re-release of Record of Lodoss War OVAs. I haven't seen it since Sci-Fi used to broadcast the first four OVA...

Re: Last Anime?

If anyone has Amazon Prime Wotakoi is turning out to be pretty good and is one of my picks for this season. It's about an otaku girl and guy who are childhood friends but reunite when they start working at the same office. The girl has a bit of a bad streak with a boyfriend who finds out about her b...

Re: I visit this site once and a while because...

This is a pretty good place to find everything LUNAR, and stuff like the old articles & artwork and such are really nice to read & look at. I particularly enjoy articles because back in the early 90s it wasn't exactly easy to just go out and buy every magazine in existence, and buying mags f...

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 ...

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...
