Re: Hacking potential

Well the art style changed between TSS and SSSC. The latter seemed to have influence from Evangelion and the former is more like late 80's anime sort of style. I noticed a difference but I do agree that it should be altered a bit in that regard. Ah, but SSS came out barely half a year after Evangel...

Re: Hacking potential

Yes, yesss! That is so excellent. I recall another championship-level American rewrite in Althena's shrine with this really paranoid guy whose insanity progressed throughout the game and whose dialogue tree was like eight lines long. He might've been the "game over" guy, but I'm not sure. ...

Re: The Untold History of Japanese Game Developers

Anyway, what am I trying to get at? I think that the creators used words like Napalm, Homing cannon, Atomic burn, and all these things only to give the player an idea of what level of powerful Lucia is, which really works better than if the game made up words for those spells or had given them othe...

Re: Hacking potential

I like the ALL CAPS, actually. But I wouldn't mind some of the typos being fixed. What I've really, really wanted to do is a fan hack of EB, actually. First mission: to make the treasure chest contents and placement make sense. Lemina's best two crossbows should not be in the same dungeon one floor...

Re: Genders of historical characters?

Thanks for the pinpointed areas, Alun. As Kizyr correctly has it, Dragonmaster Lui is definitely male...here, he's the Dragonmaster who came together with Althena to the Blue Star, and the mark of whose first step is thought to be somewhere in Lunar. (Side note: I feel like someone here at some poin...

Re: Genders of historical characters?

This is a great topic, and sensible---no reason to assume things were "male" when not stated. If you know a specific event where they're mentioned, that's easy to cross-check now via youtube or nico, but if it's in some town's library, that might be harder. I fear Lui may be one of those. ...

Re: The Untold History of Japanese Game Developers

Yeah, I'd described him originally as a gunslinger, but must've edited that out before posting. That was what made it truly random to me. Though perhaps it's of a piece with Lucia having spells like Napalm Shot and Plasma Rain and other things that don't fit in with the usual Lunar spells. I love t...

Re: The Untold History of Japanese Game Developers

Seeing as how we're talking about it anyway, I should probably take advantage of my twice-yearly visit to talk more about Sieg the Risen since he might be my favorite boss outside of Ghaleon. I loved the mountain pass duel, and I remember freaking out when I realized it was him while searching for D...

Re: The Untold History of Japanese Game Developers

Yes, like Alun said, that's not really him...in the US version of EB remix, they made a friendly nod to his absence by renaming one of the Guardians, like the other one in the spring. The real guy was Sieg the Risen on MCD, really the Star Dragon in disguise, who ambushes you in the mountains for a ...

Re: Late news, but a passing in the LUNAR family

Hm. I played the Japanese EB up to just after the fight with Borgan, but I don't remember anything about the voices. But I'm hoping to play that version again this summer. I would guess that he wasn't the Ghaleon on the Lunatic Festa CDs, since they would've used the SSS seiyuu? Right you are, thou...

It was indeed. Like John Truitt, he toned down the crazy and upped the sneering in Eternal Blue, to great effect.

Re: Late news, but a passing in the LUNAR family

This is probably as good a space as any to note another Lunar passing at the end of last year: Rokurou Naya. He lent a ghostly, wavering voice to Ghaleon in all entries except SSS.

Perhaps an appropriate send-off:

Oh, I've been around here from time to time...more back when the series was truly alive. I should note that my gloomy forecast is not for any dearth of love of the series.

Re: We need more fans.

The sad irony of fan disappointment in Lunar's vanishing profile and nonexistent sequels is that its trajectory essentially mirrors Althena's in Eternal Blue, in what we used to call "the Goddess' suicide" in the mid-1990's: "Lunar" as people remember it has been dead for many ye...

Hopefully it's not too late to join the party! Lunar~EB: Ghaleon~The Return (Mega CD only) In Mega CD Eternal Blue, Ghaleon actually has three themes (another casualty in the remake): this one (Ghaleon's reapparance, Ghaleon overlooking the Dragonship after he attacks Leo, Ghaleon aboard the Dragons...

Re: Eternal Blue strategy guide from a GamePro scans

Alun, one day I will find someone who loves Sieg/Phantom and his wicked gunslinging as much as I do! Growing up, I thought he was the coolest character outside of Ghaleon. It's an odd appearance, but I like having the Star Dragon in the story earlier so that the Epilogue feels like a resolution to t...

Re: If Lunar 2 came out for Vita...

You're conflating two unrelated things, possibly just from picking the wrong word. Do you mean localized? Because the original Japanese scripts for SSSC, Lunar Legend, and SSH are mostly identical (each has scenes exclusive to that game, but the rest of it is the same), but were translated/localize...

Great archaeological work there! It's also a great snapshot of everything that's wrong with the bungled EB remake, by virtue of how perfectly it's done here.

Read carefully---not one of my points is refutable, and faith won't cut it if you're looking at another company's property. Shigema wrote the script, by the way, but is not and was not a Game Arts employee. Nothing was lost and no copyright transferred--the remains of Game Arts merely operate under ...
