Gaming Discussion / FF9 on the Nintendo Switch
« on: March 01, 2019, 03:32:58 pm »
Have you tried it yet?
If so, how is it? Does it look good in portable mode? Is it bugged somehow?
I heard the Windows port had FX sounds wrong in battle or something, is it the same in the Switch?

I'm a bit tempted to get it albeit the price is also a bit high (20,99, digital only) ...

PS: This is probably old news to at least some of you, but I'd like to know what you think about this new project.

Gaming Discussion / Final Fantasy Logos in HD Vectors
« on: May 01, 2015, 01:19:05 pm »
Well, I am not sure if this is the correct place for posting this, but I just found this while searching hard for HD FF logos (for a project I have) and I found it really impressive!
These are the FF logos without the FINAL FANTASY® text on it.

I cannot find a single mistake there. Can you? If there's any single mistake I won't use them on my project probably.
Is there any way to find official FF logos with good HD quality without having to go to Amano's office or the Square Enix headquarters in stealth mode?

Gaming Discussion / The Fall of Gaming, the Modern Crash
« on: April 27, 2015, 08:49:31 pm »
While I was writing a post for this topic I thought it would be better to create this other topic so you guys can give your opinion on this specific matter.
Well, they might probably end giving up on the gaming industry and survive with anime, merchandising, casino games and such like Sega, and maybe some ridiculous and cheap to make but expensive to buy/"free"-play mobile games.

When did the "Videogaming Fall" begin for Konami? It seems the same it happened to other Japanese videogame companies.
They somehow needed to expand themselves on to other markets to survive the future (now) Japanese videogaming crisis.
Reminds me too of the arcade games crisis on Japan everywhere.

Japanese game companies (most except Nintendo and 1 or 2 more) have reduced so much the quantity and quality of the content they try to sell... :-\

The talent, time, and money costs needed to make games now is so extremely huge...
I never saw it coming at the time, so nowadays it makes me both sad & angry.
Not only that, but western companies are probably beginning to face it too, and surely will 5 years from now...

Did any of you see it coming 10/15 years ago?
Do any of you feel the same way about this?

What's more, do you think it is possible a new Videogame Crash happens?
http://tay.kotaku.com/are-we-on-the-cusp-of-another-video-game-industry-crash-1635286847
You think it is possible?
Can this mix of ingredients destroy the trust and make a new bomb?

  • Rise of costs (talent, time, money).
  • Rise of price on each new generation of consoles.
  • Relaxation on the indie game barriers (specially through platforms like Steam and PSN).
  • Short yet expensive inflated price games.
  • Bugs everywhere. Everywhere.
  • Abusive DLCs, instead of reasonable expansions.
  • Smaller quantity and lower quality of games every new generation.
  • Mobile/Tablet/Smartphone games exploiting much of the above points and getting more focus from companies than dedicated gaming handhelds.
Spoiler:
At least Nintendo still avoids most of those points. They could end up being clever once again in the end.
What's more...
...Would it be bad or good, to have a new crash, in the long term?

Now, it is confirmed, Konami is "D.E.A.D." ...

Will they bring up other old IPs, to then cancel such hyped up projects?
(please Konami, don't do this with Gensou Suikoden or Akumajou Dracula >:(, though Suikoden staff and Castlevania's Koji Igarashi are out... :'()
or... Will they create new IPs, pay the media to create hype, and then releasing some s***t and run away with the money?
or... Will they continue milking MGS, except this time without Hideo Kojima?
or... Will they try continue milking the outdated (since PS2) soccer PES game series every year?
(instead of upgrading the game/graphical engine and releasing a Master Version updateable through small/reasonable price DLC for new soccer seasons or free middle season updates)
or... Will they end up as Sega, or be bought by Square Enix Holdings?

Please, place your bets right here.

I think they will try all I've written above.

Square Enix Secret:

I think it could be a Star Ocean reboot, but without tri-Ace.
Quote from: SC
After finishing SO4 the team was crafting a new game engine and then were called to help in the making of FF13-2 and LR:FF13, as far as I know.
Also, the chief programmer abandoned the team after SO4. Not much was known about tri-Ace after all that.
Though I've heard it's original staff was mostly absorbed by SE before being bought by another mobile company.

What do you think? Have you played the series? If so, you think Star Ocean would need a reboot?
Or could it be another game in the same series?

Anyway, day 13 we will know. It may as well be any other game not related to Star Ocean.
But that's my personal bet.

Personal Projects / FFVI ADVANCE European Color Restoration Patch
« on: September 18, 2009, 11:01:44 am »
Sephiroth Crescent (SC) presents: FINAL FANTASY VI ADVANCE European Color Restoration Patch.

 As this game was ported to the GBA, there was a big color brightening and quality loss.
  This patch has been made to restore it to its original SNES color quality.

  My "theory" is that when SE was porting the game to the GBA they used a GBA SP to
  test their work, and they thought colors were too dark on that screen.
  However, if you play it on a GBA Micro or NDS/NDS Lite, you'll see how it really is.
  That or they were just lazy when converting graphics/colours (bad automation).

 Current features in this patch:

  ·Maps
  ·Battle backgrounds
  ·Town sprites

 Planned features:

  ·Monsters
  ·Miscellaneous stuff


Current version ( 0.8 ) preview image:

Other planned patches for FFVI Advance:
  ·7 letter names
  ·Sound restoration/enhancement
  ·Bugfixing
  ·Spanish text fixing/re-translation

And the link for the patch:

PS: Could someone submit it to RH?
I could not find the proper file hosting site... ¬¬U
