Re: An anomaly in the Lunar series

On the less is more topic the biggest gripe I had in the US release (I believe it's similar in JP) of TSS is that sans some ellipses and a few lines of dialogue Alex for the most part is a silent protagonist. There is absolutely nothing inherently wrong with a silent protagonist because in many cas...

Re: Questions regarding the series

As for a "why" the music was changed? If I could surmise a reason it would be because at it's core SSS has a very different progression and feel from TSS. It was also likely seen as a chance of sorts. When TSS first came along the full scope of CD quality music in games was still being ex...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

In line with some previous posts, I tried Dragon Quest XI on Steam. I'm really early on, not sure what I think. I LOVE the British and Irish vice acting so far, but the monster designs and some others are just silly IMO. I reached the World of Ruin in my 3rd playthrough of Final Fantasy VI. And star...

Re: Ghaleon Cosplay

What does Ghaleon tennis trash talk sound like? "It looks like the ball is in my court, dear Quark." XD... *if* this were a real game, there would be different taunts yelled depending on whom one plays as, Quark or otherwise. Also I would play Ghaleon but John Truitt would do the voices. ...

Re: Langrisser remakes

I admit to being a little wary of this, just because of how disastrous pretty much every Langrisser has been since the departure of Career Soft. It's been a parade of unrelated games that get the Langrisser name slapped on them, attempts to just imitate what the old games did except with a much les...

Re: An anomaly in the Lunar series

Some of this may have been unintentional! Shigema's often said that SSS is what he wanted TSS to be, if he had fewer constraints -- either technically (from limitations of the Sega CD or development time) or in terms of scale of the story. Thing is, though, constraints often can breed a lot of crea...

An anomaly in the Lunar series

Upon finishing TSS for the second time I realize what is so good about it overall to me. It’s an anomaly, in that virtually every Lunar (and some later games like Grandia II) game by GameArts are very preachy, with “power of humanity/human spirit/human heart” speeches, that are nonexistent in TSS. B...

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

Actually, even TSS (the best Lunar game IMO) is second to FF6 for me. Are we talking only traditional turn based RPGs or including turn based Strategy games too? If so Shining Force III for the latter. Having recently finished replaying TSS and currently replaying FF6, I must retract part of this s...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

Just finished Grandia II on Steam. Gameplay was pretty good, like an evolved Lunar battle system. I liked the characters, however the plot felt like a rehash of Lunar EB's plot (they're both done by GameArts but still I would have liked more originality.) . It has a unique take on love triangles th...
