Re: In-world sequels and myth building

Right, I had totally forgotten that Carmaine is from Rolandia (and now I'm blanking on the name of Wein's country). Growlanser II hints at a lot more political intrigue between countries than actually happens in the game, which I'm guessing is part of the callbacks to the first game. We started Grow...

Re: Fastest Game Time

You, um, don't know my Lunar playing style. I take notes. Hundreds of pages of notes. I record stats in spreadsheets. I compare Japanese strategy guides to what I'm seeing. And so on. This is why it takes me years. My attention span only handles about three months of this at a time. ^_^

Re: Fastest Game Time

I'm not sure it's possible for me to complete a game in under 50 hours or so. If I'm not reading every line of text I can, what's the point? ^_^

Re: *Pops In*

I never posted at LunarEB, but my vague recollection is that the Lunartic who posts here is not the same one who posted there (and I think at the WDMB and maybe the Shrine to Ghaleon) years ago.

Re: In-world sequels and myth building

Sorry, I've never actually played a Langrisser game (though we have III). You might be thinking of Growlanser II, which at one point I knew extremely well. As IK notes, it's a direct sequel to Growlanser (I), which makes it all the more frustrating that the latter was never localized. Growlanser II ...

Re: Least favorite Lunar 1 or Lunar 2 character

I think I wrote a post defending Ramus at some point. He's the one who actually gets Alex to up and follow his dreams rather than just hanging around Burg. He wants to find the White Dragon and passes the Trial just as much as Alex (and Luna) does. He didn't continue on the quest, but that was fine,...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I've picked up Animal Crossing again. Last fall I added another player character (I'd intended to make a new town but didn't realize I couldn't do that): Thalia. I'm thinking of making a third named Ohro. My town is named Lyton, by the way. Don't remember now why I didn't go with Saith or Lann, whic...

Re: New futon for my nerd cave (retro video game room)

That looks like a very comfortable futon indeed. And that's a good approach, having it in the game room to double as a guest room. Seriously, though, there's ONE thread in the Almost Anything Goes board that's about politics. It's not like that's the only thread there. Please knock off the sneering ...

Re: My almost 100% complete Lunar game collection

I believe SSS on the PC was in a sizeable box also

No. The Japanese box is closer to the size of a DVD box, though a little thicker. Maybe about the thickness of a (US) SCD game box. It's plastic, btw.

Re: What changes would you love to see in another remake?

I missed this thread a year and a half ago, but that's not much time around here, so I'll throw in a couple of comments. Ghaleon and co. don’t continue to capture songstresses after discovering that Luna is the one they were searching for: Dumb plot-hole that could be easily written out of the scrip...

Re: My almost 100% complete Lunar game collection

Is there a reason you're not counting the *Japanese* PC version of SSS toward your 100%? And of course you already know that there's both the regular and LE Korean version, since you seem to be going for all boxed releases. Also, if you're going for uniqueness in packaging you should probably also h...

Re: New Lunar Fan

Also, you probably know this, but the red foil on the NA SSSC box is particularly vulnerable to fading. I was just confirming that even behind glass in a room with indirect sunlight through double-paned windows, my SSSC boxes have faded. :( The SCD boxes seem to be doing a little better, and the red...

Re: New Lunar Fan

As a fellow collector, good luck with that! I have a couple extra Japanese Lunar games, but they don't have the trading cards or obi (that's why they're extra). I have both regular and limited edition Korean PC games, but they were nontrivial to get. I bought the LE from Vic Ireland, and adopted a c...

At first I thought you'd given two pics of the original edition of Paper Moon, because the little bit with the kanji below the English word MOON is so hard to see in that pic. I have both editions and should take a side-by-side photo, but I don't know if the fact that the colors in the cover are a b...

Re: Axe Appreciation Thread.

A friend of mine was so appalled that I'd never played Golden Axe that he insisted on going to a used game store right then and buying me a Genesis cart with that and a few other games on it. I really suck at that kind of game, though, so after we played it once or twice we switched to Columns and w...

Huh. I cannot imagine how we missed Funato's credit for those, given that it's very common knowledge. That must be a very old page of the site. And it's good to know what magazines they appeared in; I have the PDF she released with the comics, but have not been able to find out which magazines actua...

Re: The Artbooks - Updated!

In Canada the drinking age is 19. That always seems odd to me, but it's a useful reminder that to many people Ronfar wouldn't be that far off even if his age were in any way reasonable. Of course, most JRPGs have ridiculous ages for their casts anyway. This seems like the sort of thing a fan would a...
