Re: Final Fantasy XV

I go back and forth on the story overall. I think the game's inability to convey more of the world's present situation is a problem, especially since that political situation is so central to the core storyline. I know next to nothing about the game, having observed about 15 mins of it, but the rev...

Re: This Christmas: The Wham! Challenge

I'm glad to see this thread revived. I think about this every year too, and I lost earlier this week. It was good to hear the original. A cover version seems to be increasingly popular over the last couple of years, but I don't think it compares all that favorably to WHAM!

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I got Pokemon Moon. It goes without saying that it is very entertaining, but I think it's killing/exacerbating the decline of my 2DS -- without even getting into the lag that goes along with this combination of software and hardware. Upgrading is definitely in my future. I resumed Animal Crossing Ne...

I haven't watched as much of it as I would like (the notorious production troubles may be dampening my enthusiasm,) but it starts out beautiful and I find the character designs in particular very inviting.

Re: Lunar's dragons origin in ancient Chinese cosmology?

My theory... I don't think it's a direct and intentional reference. But dragons have figured in Chinese and Japanese folklore and mythology for ages, and hence they -- that is, Chinese and Japanese-style dragons -- have been fixtures in RPGs for decades now. Things being divided into fours -- four ...

Yay! Pop Culture Refs in WD Games!

I pulled out Magic Knight Rayearth last weekend. It's such a nice little game, and it had been years since I last played it. While flipping though the instruction booklet, I found an Oingo Boingo reference that made me laugh out loud. Something like "Monsters love little girls, they make them f...

Re: Conquering Your Enemy

The only reason Borgan is a threat at all is because he's involved in the whole evil god restoration conspiracy, an aspect of the plot that Lemina is not tied into very strongly. Borgan on his own is pathetic and not worth Lemina's trouble. So I suppose her accomplishment where he is concerned is no...

All the Lunar Observations

I recently acquired All the Lunar, the hard-to-find disk of desktop apps. I was digging around in the files and discovered some things I'd never seen any mention of before. There are a number of video clips on the disk, which are encoded very cleanly despite having an obnoxiously low frame rate. Mor...

This is the inverse of the subject of this thread, but I've been trying to come up with ideas for suitable games to base a Lunar-themed graphics hack on.

Re: Least favorite Lunar 1 or Lunar 2 character

Lunar's not the kind of story where people take revenge. But what Borgan did was really horrible , and it's like he's just let off the hook of his own recognizance? I mean, at least toss him in jail somewhere in Vane? I just started imagining a fanfic where Borgan's victims come looking for him, bu...

Re: GungHo/GameArts survey about porting games to PC

And honestly I asked for Eternal Blue Complete to come to PC, because I feel like that would (a) be construed as a vote for SSSC first if it came down to it, and (b) I've got enough versions of SSSC. I'd buy another, but I'm not the perfect customer for a re-re-re-re-rerelease. I asked for the same...

Re: Megadrive Fan Mag with Nall on Cover

Alunissage, I found a magazine relevant to your interests:

Megadrive Fan changed its name to Saturn Fan the month after Lunar 2 released, but apparently there was still plenty of Megadrive-related content in there through 1995.
