Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I've been playing Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age. My level is in the upper 40s and I'm on my way to Archades. With the 4x speed settings in this version, I've had time to do many of the side hunts and explore to my heart's content. (I'd played the original, but at the time I was dating someone wh...

Re: Star Wars IX (spoilers)

I liked it and had fun overall. I enjoyed the main plot - the macguffin of the Sith wayfinder, Rey learning more about herself and coming to terms with who she is, Poe and Finn each becoming more mature versions of themselves and Finn especially being able to speak to that ex-child soldier side to h...

Re: Japanese name/reference for Magic Tester?

^ In terms of visual reference, it reminds me of the reference to cathedral stained glass I found - something real that influences the design of an in-game element. But I can't think of any other bosses or designs that would qualify as a Japanese pop-cultural reference. (Not that I would be likely t...

Re: Magical School Lunar translation [in progress!]

Wow, good work so far!

I'm really looking forward to this translation. Since getting MSL several years ago, I've wanted an English translation to understand what is going on.

Re: Japanese name/reference for Magic Tester?

Fascinating! There are enough points of similarity that I wouldn't be surprised if that was an inspiration. That said, it works well because the concept of a wind-up drummer or little drummer boy is well-known. There is video of the moment from the Japanese version of Eternal Blue on YouTube: https:...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I, too, have rampaged a village. Right now I've mostly been playing Dragon Quest XI S. Even though I already played it last year, I find the game engrossing to replay. The faster battle speed option helps reduce the repetition. Meanwhile, they have added a few character-focused episodes to this vers...

Re: Least favorite Lunar 1 or Lunar 2 character

Given how the Phantom Sentry scolds Lucia in EB, I don't know if I'd see him as being "hers" so much as that they -- dragons, Lucia, Althena -- are all part of a team. Yeah, I think that's closer to their relationship. Team members can disagree with one another while being committed to si...

Re: Least favorite Lunar 1 or Lunar 2 character

^ Would it be plausible for the Star Dragon to be one of Lucia's dragons, rather than one of Althena's? Or, if the Star Dragon is acting not as a servant (as the Phantom Sentry) but as a keeper, for the Star Dragon to serve someone grander than both goddesses? The four dragons seem to serve the godd...

Re: Who is your favorite?

In Lunar: SSSC, I've long found Jessica a favorite. As I recall, early descriptions of her by NPCs vary widely, with Mel considering her a dear daughter but other people observing how much of a rebel she is, or how they don't remember her being at the temple to Althena. Then she is heavily alluded t...

Re: Jessica: strong female character or missed opportunity?

Alunissage I totally respect that, but would it be acceptable to point out that the whole point of the translations by Working Design at that time were simply to make the game culturally relatable to Americans? I mean, do you think that there weren't Americans in the 1990s who rolled their eyes at ...

Re: Grandia HD Collection on Nintendo Switch

After about 12 hours, I've noticed a few things in Grandia that may give pause if you have high expectations. 1. Occasionally music or sounds will glitch when transitioning to a battle or (especially) a boss. It self-corrects after a moment, and isn't an issue afterward. 2. Widescreen is mostly very...

Re: Grandia HD Collection on Nintendo Switch

I picked the collection up. It has been a long time since I played Grandia, so I figured that having it on portable was worth the price of admission.

So far, it has been a giddy experience. I forgot how much I liked the writing and humor in this game.

Oh, I've been playing Fire Emblem: Three Houses. I played the first time with the Black Eagles (spoiler: I chose the church over Edelgard ), and am doing a second playthrough (on Hard Classic) with the Golden Deer. It is one of the more narratively interesting FE games; I haven't been this engaged s...

Yes, re: minimalism of menu design. However, having no graphical art from Lunar would be a missed opportunity. I consider all the work with the banners and the graphics to have been well spent.

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I played and beat FF7 for the Switch. Between this and FF9, I have finished two Final Fantasy games in my life. Having the x3 speed really helps. In the past, the endgame of a Final Fantasy would always bog me down and I'd lose interest. I'm waiting for Fire Emblem: Three Houses. I'm also on the fen...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I'm over halfway through Xenogears. This is a replay of a game I haven't touched much in 15 years. I've forgotten enough that I don't remember most of the plot details, but remember enough that I can see most of the foreshadowing. The combat is a lot easier than I remember it. I have also started th...
