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: New Star Wars

I'm gonna go see Darth Moses. Or Jedi Moses -- he's a protagonist, it seems. But seriously, the casting of this kid moved me from cautiously optimistic to unreservedly optimistic.

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.

I'd been wondering if this magazine was published long enough to cover EB, and I'm glad to see that it was.

Re: Megadrive Fan Mag with Nall on Cover

This is a different "novel". Looks like a short story, really, but in Japanese fiction is always a "novel". In translation, the title of the story is "The Snake Ring," and it was written by Takashi Hino, one of original scenario team members. (The other Lunar 1 noveliza...

I agree that SSS is not, but Lunar Legend? SSH? Not herculean feats of game development.

Althena dresses in a blue jacket with brown traveling pants, soft yet durable leather travelling boots, and a sword at her hip. I like this image, particularly the sword. It makes me want to draw a little, but it's been ages since I last drew anything. Adventurer Althena would look rather like Fres...

Re: Tumblr?

Tumblr is a great way to get morsels of information related to your interests in a format that just barely grazes your consciousness. I enjoy it, but seriously...I'm lucky if I remember a tenth of what I look at. I probably only remember a quarter of what I reblog.

Re: Hacking potential

(Side note: imagine how much better sales (in Japan) would have been if Lunar had been a PC Engine series instead!) Wow. You're right, TSS could have easily worked on PCE. The series might even have a higher profile today if it was released on that system. Lunar 2 probably would have been very diff...

Re: Hacking potential

To go off on a little tangent here... I have a theory that the influence of Ayano Koshiro contributes to the different look of TSS. She is a graphics designer who worked for the likes of Falcom and Quintet back in the day, and she is credited in two Lunar games, TSS and Walking School. She did monst...

Re: Genders of historical characters?

This gets tricky since Japanese seldom uses pronouns. Most of what we can say will be based on inference. For example, in Lunar 2 the Black Dragon has a feminine speech pattern, so the likely intention is that the Black Dragon is female. (Or at least that Black Dragon probably is, because I'm pretty...

I wrote out the majority of them, but they're in Japanese. You are welcome to them, of course, but I'd need to find the files first.

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

Sad to hear about Rokuro Naya, I remember his work fondly from a few other shows as well. Trivia: he voiced Professor X in the Japanese dub of the 90s X-Men cartoon. As to the relative merits of Naya vs. Yanada, Ghaleon is a somewhat atypical character for Yanada, who often is cast as bruisers or mi...

I've never gotten good audio sync on streaming audio while emulating any Sega CD or Turbo CD game, no matter the emulator.
