Gaming Discussion / Re: Retronauts podcast on fan translations
« on: October 21, 2013, 10:15:47 pm »
I'm with you guys.  I'd love to see a podcast section on the site (or at least some links)!

@Next gen Cowboy - Doing interviews with some of the old fossils from the early days would be fantastic if you could track them down.  I've lost contact with so many of those old timers, and it would be great to know what they are up to now.  Also, their perspective on the early days and how things have changed would make for a great listen.

Gaming Discussion / Re: Final Fantasy VI brought to iOS and Android

FF4 was on the DS at first, same with FF3. Dunno if that should count or not.

ALL the other FF games and DQ games that SE is planning to bring to iOS were on other systems first...  I don't really see what you're getting at...

@KingMike:  I don't have a problem with RPGMaker style graphics...  I believe most complaints come from younger gamers who never lived through the glory days of the SNES.

I'm not trying to start any fights here; I'm just tired of seeing ANY iOS news from a big Japanese company get crapped all over by almost everyone in any news comments section...  Which begs the question: Why am I even reading the comments sections!?  Everyone knows not to do that! ;)

As someone who has played through a lot of SquareEnix games in iOS, I can say that I have actually enjoyed what I've played (Though some of the graphic work in FFV was awful).  I had great experiences with FFIV and FF:Dimensions... 

To me it seems that whenever S-E (or other Japanese companies these days) announces a semi-decent game for iOS/Android, people automatically start crapping all over it... I'll admit that there are some PURE GARBAGE games put out on iOS (All the Bravest), but they aren't all bad, and a lot of the newer "expensive" titles are really quite good.

I'm looking forward to seeing what this remake is going to look like :)

If only my wife were into games... That would be great!  Although, I'm much more productive not being able to sit down in front of the TV and waste away the hours while gaming ;)

Me feels this turning into a gun debate real soon!  Hehe.

I'd yell a lot, and if the person didn't flee, I'd have to grab whatever's handy.  You'd be surprised how many people I've known over the years who've had someone stumble into their apartment because the door wasn't locked, and said person was too drunk to figure out they were in the wrong place.  Happens  a lot here in Korea.

Gaming Discussion / Re: Different Final Fantasy XII releases?
« on: September 13, 2013, 12:45:32 am »
Here's a copy of FFXII Korean version: http://item2.gmarket.co.kr/Item/detailview/Item.aspx?goodscode=332827320&pos_shop_cd=SH&pos_class_cd=111111111&pos_class_kind=T&keyword_order=final+fantasy+xii+ps2&keyword_seqno=3389426537&search_keyword=final+fantasy+xii+ps2


Edit:  Found different copies for much cheaper on that seller's actual site: http://vgr.co.kr/search.asp?gotopage=2&ap_L=&ap_LName=&ap_M=&ap_MName=&searchstring=xii&order=&ag_co=
Not: The expensive one (54,000) is the only one not used.

Edit again... Just to help you out, if you want to go searching through Korean online stores to find the game, make sure you type in "파이널 판타지 XII" when you search ;)  Good luck!

Gaming Discussion / Re: XBOX ONE
« on: May 22, 2013, 09:14:34 am »
The Xbox One is also switching its CPU. It's using the same one as the PS4. The X360 used something entirely different from the XBOX 1.

Well that makes a lot more sense.  I was thinking of switching to the new Xbox (was a PS3 owner) as I was hoping it would have backwards compatibility.  That's a huge library of games I missed out on.  Too bad... Now I'm not sure which I will get.  I guess the best thing will be to wait for a year or so and see which system has the games I want to play. It'll probably end up being the PS4, but at least I'll be able to get it at a cheaper price and with a better library.

After hearing that the PS4 would not have backwards compatibility, I was thinking I may buy the new Xbox.  However, now I'm reading that the Xbox One also won't have any back.comp...  It makes sense with the PS4 as it is moving off of the cell processor, but I have no idea why the new Xbox won't have the option...

The Wii-U has backwards compatibility, but... I'm not so sure I want one as 3rd party support seems pretty weak at this point.  It's sad because I really want to play the new Xenoblade game when it comes out :(

Gaming Discussion / Re: Your #1 RPG you ever played?
« on: May 21, 2013, 10:42:16 pm »
I have to jump on the Xenogears or Chrono Trigger bandwagon... Chrono was a masterpiece when it came out, and it's still very playable, even today!  Xenogears has its rushed second disc, but the story was unlike anything ever attempted in an RPG at the time.  Sadly, the graphics do not stand up to the test of time... If SE ever does a graphical overhaul (as they seem to be doing with FFVII, FFVIII, and various iPad games) of the game, it will be a day-one buy for me.

General Discussion / Re: North Korea ends truce with South Korea.
« on: March 16, 2013, 10:13:21 pm »
I would think that Seoul would definitely take some heavy damage, no matter how things went down.  If the North launched everything at once or in a very short time, things could be bad for Seoul.  However, if the North only set off a few missiles, the South would then counter quite quickly taking out North Korea's missile systems.  Hopefully, though, we'll never have to find out what would happen.

That and the fact that the console market here is not nearly as popular as the PC gaming market ;)

Back on topic for second.  One thing I didn't mention is that the Korean public is almost always very disengaged when it comes to anything related to North Korea.  I guess when you've spent your whole life hearing the North rant and rave, you learn to ignore it and get on with everyday life.  The media, however, has really been covering the issue this time.  I see newspaper articles on the subject every day.  Though the majority of the public may be turning a blind eye, the media are not.

Well I've been here in Korea for nine years (whips out peen), so let me throw in my two cents...

I totally agree with M_tee that this is mostly a test on the new president to see how she will react to the mounting situation.  North Korea almost always ramps up their tough talk and armament relocation when new people are put in office.  It's just a friendly reminder to the South.  These things are extremely common, and as pointed out previously, North Korea has "ripped up" the armistice a couple of times in recent memory, so that's really nothing new.

The big change this time is the situation the North has gotten itself into.  You have a still "relatively" new dictator who wants/NEEDS to flex his muscles a little mostly to show his own military that he's a serious guy.  There was an alleged attack on his life by his own military a little while ago, so he still needs to beef up his own image.  You also have the very recent satellite launch, ballistics tests, and nuclear bomb test, which all pissed off people in South Korea and those in the UN.  This has only increased pressure on North Korea; thus creating an environment for the country to act more erratic.

Another thing we're seeing this time around is heightened violent threats being made by their representative at the UN as well as through their media (which are controlled by the gov).  Sure they've always made threats in the past, but they've been even more severe than I remember.

Finally, I predict that the North will probably attack the South in some way over the next year.  No, not a land invasion, but a few shells will be shot over the border.  This isn't unusual, though.  See the YeonPeongDo shelling a few years back.  Usually, the South restrains themselves from doing much retaliation (and are greatly held back by the US).  However, this turning the other cheek has pissed off a TON of people in the government who now vow that if the North were to attack again, they would blast the hell out of the them.

If war were to break out, you can be sure than South Korea would win.  The South has superior arms and allies to help them out.  These days, we are seeing China (who needs to remain economically stable with its open markets) shunning the North and siding more with the South and US interests.  North Korea wouldn't get much help if war broke out, so it's not really a viable plan.

Luckily for me, I don't live anywhere near the north of South Korea, so I'm pretty safe if anything were to happen, and I'd have plenty of time to head for the hills.  I really don't see any chance of outright war, however.  It would just spell the fall of North Korea.

Oh, and to reply to the other comment above... No, North Korea news outlets use Korean (at least all the ones I've seen).  If you know Korean and ever see these broadcasts, you'll laugh because the way they speak is VERY different from the way people in the South speak.

I also have to mention Resonance of Fate.  It's the ONLY rpg that I own that I've started but never finished (which is not exactly what this topic is about..).  The battle system has a HUGE learning curve to it, and I never could master it quite enough to get past certain parts of the game.

I also have to go with FightClub.  Although I love the book, this is one of the rare occasions where I felt the movie was a little better.

If you're looking for nice, long, well-orchestrated music, then I'd recommend Symphonic Fantasies.  My favorite track is the Chrono medley one. Check it out on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FcZHDAueaJ4

Yay!  Well done to everyone involved on the project!  I was hoping for an X-mas romhacking gift, and you've delivered.
