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:

Re: We need more fans.

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. I did this for G1 one time in my free time in about ten days in a rush, for instance, because the games were so important to me:...

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...

Re: Favorite Lunar song?

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...

Re: Eternal Blue strategy guide from a GamePro scans

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. Here in these pages, you have laid out before you: Probably the best last boss sequence of any game, from strategy to actual boss appearance (...

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 ...

Outstanding inscription! Too bad about the "Kevin" part, though---I don't expect too many people would dig another person's inscription that much, and I'd feel odd about getting rid of it if I were the seller.

Re: Lunar EB Section: Upgraded!

More fantastic work! By the way, I'm due for a replay, but I cannot recall Ghaleon being referred to as "Dragonmaster" in the Mega CD version of the game itself. In the remake, it's quite explicit, of course, and they got to do what Shigema talks about having originally planned in the Luna...

Re: Lunar TSS Section: Upgraded!

Brilliant work, Kiz! Loved the character section, and the in-game animation screenshots reminded me of some of the raw 1992 charm of the (slightly off-model) art direction. You guys can thank me later. And why, pray tell? I seem to recall that your "gathering of information" consisted of a...

Re: Blue Spire Non-Exsistant? (now contains spoilers topic g

less defensible was my theory that the Sunken Tower in EB's epilogue started out as the Saith Lighthouse, but since both of those were removed from the remakes there's even less to go on with that. Ha! Alun, I knew we were always on the same page. That had been a pet theory of mine in pre-EB remake...

I loved what they did for Arhes/Alex in the remake and think it reflected an intelligent evolution in the way RPG protagonists were being handled by that time.

Your memories are correct indeed! Nowhere in any Japanese packaging is 1000 years mentioned, nor in any version of Eternal Blue itself, in my recollection. Weird as the artbook ages for everyone are, without looking at it (just as well, as I've left it in another country) I can still recall that yes...
