Re: Jessica: strong female character or missed opportunity?

Dude. I just said I didn't care for the line. It was hardly a critique of the entire game or the company as a whole. Things aren't all or nothing, you know? You yourself said that you find some things offensive but you still love the game a whole lot; why would you assume I didn't feel the same? For...

Re: What is Canon?

I'm almost certain I saw references in SSS to events in the Vheen manga, or at least implications thereof. I'll have to go through my notes to find them.

Re: Least favorite Lunar 1 or Lunar 2 character

Just to make sure you know, the original is the SegaCD version, not the Sega Saturn. The Saturn and PSX versions are basically identical (and the Saturn one is Japanese-only), so I want to make sure you look for the right one. Also, please don't dodge the language censor. Just type your thing and le...

I have never cared for that line of Kyle's. It's basically a PMS joke, which I don't find funny.

I'd suggest painting triangles over the holes in black, to give the look of triangles while being functionally circles.

Re: Question about packaging.

To be honest, the SSSC map is nicer in concept than reality, because it's actually the TSS map and thus is not useful for SSSC -- the Temple of Althena is in a different location. But it's a color cloth map, so there's that. It only shows the first three towns by name and is more for atmosphere than...

Re: Saturn translation [in progress!]

The Saturn versions of SSS and EB are functionally identical to the PS ones we played except for fewer bromides and dungeons (in EB). But the music sounds much better. There are lists of differences on the main site, but they're mainly focused on translation differences rather than Saturn/PSX differ...

Re: In defense of Lunar: Legend...

I've replayed the beginning of LL relatively recently, up to Meribia or so, and I think it actually shows more character depth than any of the other versions of Lunar 1, at least in that part. Some examples: - Both Nash and Alex take the White Dragon Trial, which is some questions posed to them indi...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

Cadence of Hyrule, on and off. It's a pretty short game, but since it's randomly generated, there's some replay value to it. I want to try the two-player mode, but my husband has been pretty busy so I haven't asked him.

Replaying SSH for the first time since it came out. Had totally forgotten that there's an added scene of Luna and Ghaleon talking about music, just after meeting Ghaleon for the first time.

Re: In This Thread I Explain Why This Game Isn't Canon.

The twin Dragonmasters are variously called Asty and Liza, Alicia and Lina, and Alicia and Laticia. Loka (Gaull) was a different one (though the Blue Dragon in SSS refers to Loka and Lina, changed to Alicia and Laticia in SSSC). The book is in the Vane Library in SSS/SSH. I want to play as a Beastwo...

Re: In-world sequels and myth building

Huh. I've always meant to try Dragon Quest, in that mythical time when I have time to pick up a new-to-me RPG series. Right now, I think I'll be playing Lunar 1 for the rest of my life. :P I have Dragon Warrior for NES, DQ V-VI for Super Famicom, and I hink DQ8 for whatever it came out on, but I've ...

I agree with all of Sonic#'s comments. The one instance of a pregnancy joke I recall finding really funny (okay, aside from Kizyr and Jenner's one on here some years ago) was when my grandfather called my mom and said "I don't know how to tell you this, but your mother is pregnant." (My gr...

Re: Hello everyone!

As Kizyr said, it's pretty cool to have another member who started the series with the SegaCD games! I'm kind of the most conspicuous merchandise collector here, probably, though I don't get much new stuff these days because there isn't much left. I do have duplicates of a few of the Japanese games ...

Re: Lunar SSS / SSSC Status & Translator Request?

I would very much like to rewrite the dialogue a bit -- not tons, as I like the WD translation (and parts of the LL and SSH translations), and mainly want to fix things that don't quite match up with what's going on or established personalities. And minor errors. As it happens, I already have a scri...

Re: Sleeping passengers on Hispaniola

So, I've verified that in SSH it is possible to talk to the sleeping passengers and crew also. So probably it's a weird SSST artifact.
