Re: GHALEON DID NOTHING WRONG

You aren't "hammering" anything, thank you. The frontier was a horrible living place due to lack of food/light as has previously been established. These living conditions may have contributed to the Black Dragon’s insanity. Therefore it “hammers in” my point that it was a Frontier was a h...

Re: GHALEON DID NOTHING WRONG

The only Vile Tribe members we see talking in TSS are definitely written to imply a group of stupid monsters. Lines like "I've lost count of all the humans I've [some verb]...wait, I don't know how to count!" and dumb-coded laughter. I don't recall offhand if that's also the case in Japan...

Re: GHALEON DID NOTHING WRONG

I often prefer ideologically driven villains, but I prefer TSS Ghaleon because he was a revenge-driven antagonist done right, whereas remake Ghaleon had a cause, but it was so esoteric that it just felt like Ghaleon was being really rigid. If the game had taken time to show roving bandits, changing ...

Re: Growlanser 1

The situation with Langrisser is a bit unusual. To make a long story short the original publisher of the series, NCS, left the gaming market years ago and eventually Extreme bought the rights to all their IP. Extreme essentially operates by licensing out the IP to others. In practice what this has ...

Re: Book of the Moment

Ok this is just getting ridiculous now: someone please stop speaking in riddles, and tell me the title, since so many of you know. I did a search based on the original post, and found nothing relevant.

Re: Pentagulia's destruction

A parallel: there's a moment in a novel I won't name when a reckless politician, on a passenger train whose engine has broken down, urges that they be switched to an old coal engine instead of waiting for another diesel engine. He eventually harangues the operator into doing so, even though the old...

Re: Lunar: Walking School English reproduction cart?

According to Instagram, I think this site will do a custom request: https://www.retrocircuits.com/custom-requests/
The original post: https://www.instagram.com/p/BtTQ4_rhndG ... ei75gmn1o1 it's a bit vague but I think it's a WSL reprocart.

Re: Finally finished this, mini-review/comparison

WD has caught flak over the years for upping the difficulty in their games, but Borgan is actually easier in their version than in the original Japanese MegaCD game. Seriously. I think in both games it was Ronfar's Light Litany that I found the most useful, since it both does a decent amount of dam...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

Langrisser mobile (discussed in another thread) and Saiyuki Journey West for PS1 are my main games right now. Saiyuki has nice gameplay/characters plus it’s good to play an rpg that takes place in fantasy Asia as opposed to fantasy Europe for once. Currently about to fight Taurus aka Cowface (lol So...

Re: Finally finished this, mini-review/comparison

This is also my opinion but one thing I did really like about EB on the Sega CD was the 'presentation' as in the overall look and feel of the game. The somewhat subdued palette on a CRT gave the title more authenticity in it's dungeon, ruin crawling nature than the seemingly brighter palettes of th...

Re: Pentagulia's destruction

I doubt Zophar is the type to order an evacuation, though It's possible some left in time on their own. Actually speaking of grim, Zophar turns Fake "Althena" into a boss monster, I can't see any reason he wouldn't turn wounded survivors into weaker monsters (ie the regular enemies faced)....

Pentagulia's destruction

This applies to any version of Lunar 2: The scene where Lucia summons the dragons to destroy Pentagulia looks pretty awesome visually, in that respect it’s one of my favorite scenes of the game. But upon further reflection, didn’t she just destroy an entire city and probably kill many inhabitants wh...
