Mine would definitely have to be Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals. That game is a brilliant masterpiece.

I'm removing the Persona series to my 60 games long "to play" list.
Not that I'm advocating for Persona 3 or Persona 4, especially since I haven't played P4, but... talking strictly about the PSP ports: the SEBEC route (Main story) of Persona 1, and Persona 2: Innocent Sin, are both really easy on Beginner mode. I didn't need to grind once in Innocent Sin, at least.

I'm an odd sheep in that I dislike Persona 3, though.

Main menu:


Config menu:


The background is actually darker than a previous build's was, but apparently not enough =)  Some people also say that the blue at the top and bottom borders is too strong.

Another big change I did was move most of the text to BG3 instead of the original game's BG1.  This is because in Mode 1, BG1 graphics are 16-color - twice as big as the 4-color BG3.  This conserves a lot of VRAM needed to store the rendered text.
I like the background; it looks just like the one d4s used in Breath of Fire II.

Whatcha guys gonna do for the lower-left blank box? Or is that a secret?

Some suggestions, if you don't have anything planned.
- Play time. (Probably easiest?)
- Time of day indicator? (Dawn, morning, afternoon, evening, dusk, night)
- Powers of who's currently up front? (Fishing, flying, hunting, forest-walking, nothing, etc.)
- Current music track name? (This one's reaching, admittedly)

Well. Remember right after the BoF2 patch was done, and I started doing my own work on BoF1 before I decided it'd take too much effort to hammer the SNES version's menu into shape?

The plan is to actually use my fancy-style menu I made (or something that looks like it). :3

Posting from the old BoFII retranslation thread. I like how it turned out. I forgot it, to be honest.

I never did get around to finishing the Breath of Fire 1 translation hack, but here's how far I got.  Yes, this is working all within the game engine. =)

Did you guys ever decide what you were going to do with the main menu screen?

I'd be willing to draw you up an 8x8 proportional font that matches the one I did for the Schala Project way back in the day. Interested?

I'd, uh, also need the Schala Project font again, too. I don't have it anymore, I don't think.

I'm surprised a topic hasn't been started here about this yet.


EDIT: This topic here already talks about it, sorry. http://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php/topic,16268.0.html

Please feel free to ignore / delete this. I was just excited, I guess! :D

I;m surprised you didn't go with FES, given P3P cuts out so much of the game(Really shoulda been two discs so they didn't have to cut so much out).
I was told P3P was faster, simpler, and less frustrating. After P1 and the P2s, that's right up my alley.

EDIT: Speaking of P1, I loaded my save on Shin Megami Tensei: Persona again. I don't think any Persona fan would ever be able to understand why I love this game so much. I still have to finish the Snow Queen Quest. Apparently, my choices are to grind for some more levels I may or may not need, or go to the next tower, Nemesis. I'll be doing that, following a map of course, soon enough.

Current Personas.

- Seimen Kongou (Rank MAX)
- Lilim (Rank 5), AKA one of the the Win Game buttons.
- Airgetlam (Rank 1)

- Vesta (Rank MAX), I'll probably keep Vesta forever due to Freila.
- Fuutai (Rank 7)
- Shouki (Rank 3), Estoma is my virtue.

- Houri (Rank MAX)
- Urvashi (Rank 7)
- Janus (Rank 1), I actually had to level Ayase up for this.

- Nike (Rank MAX)
- Sati (Rank 6)
- Phaleg (Rank 1)

- Nemhain (Rank MAX)
- Quetzalcoatl (Rank 6)
- Triglav (Rank 1)

Despite what I said before, I moved straight on to Persona 3 Portable.

It's addictive. I can see how it won the hearts of people, made them ignore or forget about Persona, Persona 2: Innocent Sin, and Persona 2: Eternal Punishment.

I like the voice acting, the cast and situation seem nice. The battle system and moving through Tartarus are both fluid. The time managment concept seems interesting. I'm a bit spoiled from the option to turn off battle animations, which exist in P1 through P2: EP, but I'll deal. On the whole, I do plan to finish Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 Portable.


Having played Persona, Persona 2: Tsumi, and Persona 2: Batsu before diving into the more popular half of the series... Persona 3 doesn't feel like a Persona game.

I finished Persona 2: Eternal Punishment.

It wasn't worth it.

Tsumi already had the perfect ending. Everyone meets again in front of the train station. Everything seems to be looking up... then Batsu happens.

But I only say that because Batsu told the ugly truth behind the seemingly beautiful ending in Tsumi. Things weren't going to just be Maya being a hard-working career woman, or Yukino confessing to Fujii, or Eikichi starting a band with Jun and Tatsuya, or Lisa finding her true way.

Shit was going to get real, whether Batsu happened or not. And it did.

Now, for the Sumaru Gang and the Mikage-cho Defense Force, life can resume as normal.

Things may never become beautiful and perfect again... but do they need to? The Gang sacrificed their bonds to save the world, to save Sumaru City. Or, "The sacrifice for the few for the sake of the many."

It was a sacrifice that needed to happen.

Perhaps I should more accurately say, it wasn't worth it... if all you care about is the happy surface of the story.

I'll be "always by your side," but you'll "change your way, it's gonna be alright..."

In the end, I got more than my money's worth out of both Persona 2 games combined.

I love Breath of Fire V, a lot more than the PlayStation games. I love what Capcom did with the series, and I think it's a masterpiece.

Not many agree with me, though.

*adjusts hipster glasses, then listens to more "underground" music from artists you've probably never heard of*

EDIT: The last time I professed my love for Dragon Quarter, though, it started what I want to nicely call a "heated debate."

A slow playthrough of Persona 3FES or 4 can take 80+ hours by itself.
That... that'll be fun.

Maybe I'll take a break for a replay of The 3rd Birthday after I finish Batsu.

I bought a Vita--which came with a carrying pack, charger cords, power brick, and 8 GB memory card--a hard copy of Persona 4 Golden, and legitimate digital copies of Persona 1, Persona 2: Innocent Sin, and Persona 3 Portable. I later bought The 3rd Birthday because I have no self-control.

I'm quite content with my game collection, for now. We'll see how long this lasts.

I'm currently running my Persona-thon 2013, where I'm playing the games in the series I own in order. I'd like to discuss the feeling of not making progress, but I can't without spoilers. I'll just say that I think it was an intentional design choice.
I suppose so, but feeling like you're still barely out of square 1 when all that's left are...

The subway, Ameno Torifune, Sumaru Castle, and then Monado Mandala...

...makes it feel like a waste of 51 hours, now.

I think that this'll end up being another 5 to 10 hours, though. I still want to grab the maps for the bomb shelter areas 7 and 8, too.

That'd make Persona 2 being the second most time I spent on an entry in the series (95 to 100 hours between Tsumi and Batsu), right after FFXII with its 226 hours.

I'm about 40 hours into Persona 2: Eternal Punishment. I have spent 80 hours between it and Innocent Sin. My god.

Thing is, though, I don't really feel like I've accomplished anything in Batsu compared to Tsumi. I mean, I'm on the Nichirinmaru, and I just now feel like I'm accomplishing something, story-wise.

Eh, not really. I just thought "I don't want to call it Super Peach Sisters, and Peach and Daisy aren't sisters anyway."
but thank you. :) now if we could just get ahold of kishi to put in mattrizzle's edits.

Why not super peach sisters?
See, I thought about that, but to make it totally one-for-one with the title Super Mario Bros., you'd need to make it Super Peach Sises, which looks awkward. I mean, simply Super Peach Sis. could work, but then you lose the plural that the original title was going for. Super Peach Siss. is out of the question from the start.

Then there's the fact that Peach and Daisy aren't related like Mario and Luigi are--they're cousins, not sisters, right? At least, that's what I was told. So SMB became SPG.

I suggest SMB Princesses as the name. I'm assuming Daisy is P2.
That's also a good one, but you'd need to organize the title screen in a different way... unless you wanted to be lazy and put "PRINCESSES" in the in-game font under the original title screen. :P

IIRC, that quote was a photoshop and not something she ever said...
That makes me feel slightly more at ease. I'll take your word for it.

That doesn't mean there aren't "radfems" who actually think that, though.

As someone who dislikes her because she's a worthless journalist: holy crap dude overreacting much????
No, you don't quite understand. This is a woman who, through the power of Social Justice Warriors on that grand ol' shitpile cesspool that is known as Tumblr, managed to run off with $15,000 to do her "video game reviews."

She appeals to those "radical feminists." According to them, I am only homosexual due to my "intense hatred" of women--that goes for all other gay men as well.

If you cross her, her deranged cultist followers will run after you.

She has the power of the hivemind.

Okay, I might be exaggerating  now, but seriously, she does have a creepy little following of "transethnic radfem multiples turtlekin womyn".

I am not making this shit up. I could talk all day about Tumblr "social justice," really, I could. But I don't want to, because it's freaking terrifying.

On the actual subject of the Donkey Kong, Legend of Zelda, and Super Mario Bros. mods: I am in favor of them. I love playing as women, and identify with female characters very much more often than male characters.
