Re: The Untold History of Japanese Game Developers

I placed an order for the book as well, shortly after I posted, but I went with a free postage option and haven't even had the dispatch notification yet. I'm looking forward to reading about games like Popful Mail, Monster World IV and Silpheed as well. The asking price of the DVDs seems too high, b...

Re: Phantasy Star Zero

Just popping in to say that this game is fantastic! Graphically it's certainly a bit Saturn-ish (in a very well crafted way), but it would seem that PS0 has been put together by people who really knew what worked best in PSO and PSU, and what didn't. Things like feeding mags and grinding equipment a...

Re: Dubbed version of the Magical School Lunar anime.

Removed for terms of use violation?

Looks like the dailymotion ones are gone too.

I hate it when that happens.

Did anyone rip them before they vanished? I quite like what the dubbers achieved.

There's a demo of Eternal Sonata on the Japanese Xbox Live Marketplace. It's called Trusty Bell there, and was released a couple of weeks ago. Sales were good, for a 360 game in Japan anyway. The demo is in either Japanese or English depending on the origin of the 360 it's played on. Anyway, I've be...

All the games shops I know of either keep the software behind the counter and only leave the cases on the shelves, or all the cases have a magnetic strip which sets alarms off if you try to leave without the strip being deactivated. Same goes for videos and music. I know several people that abuse th...

Yup, no more handhelds, and no more remakes. I'd want Game Arts and gamers alike to take Lunar III at least as seriously as Grandia III.

The first b&w Gameboy is more than twice as fast as the NES! But because of the GB's display limitations, I'd have to say that Alunissage has a point with Metroid 2.

Went with the original, mainly because of its speed. I'm also taking the random battles into account since I didn't like the execution of the visible enemies. I liked the ideas that were present in Magical School also. That is, combination spells, and learning spells through events other than gainin...

Sounds like a cool project. But how can we be expected to provide more info than what's on a website that has been built up over the course of many years by several people? Are school newspaper articles really that big?

Wow at this thread. Really. Dhowerter, the World Wide Web can not be expected to work as a complete encyclopedia of everything, ever!

I've seen all of Nadesico and about half of Tylor. While I like Tylor (mainly because the captain himself is so great), this is a very easy decision for me. I adore Nadesico from start to finish and feel that it's really more than just a small step ahead. I had hoped that Vandread and Kiddy Grade wo...

Every Lunar game would work fine on the original Megadrive 3 button pad, so it's not a big deal. After a few hours of RPG playing I tend to forget about the pad I'm using completely, since the genre doesn't usually do anything to tire the fingers (those that do are stupid). The ultimate feature of a...
