Lufia SNES Series Review - SNESdrunk
Here’s a good review of Lufia by SNESdrunk posted today:
Did you ever play the Lufia games on SNES? What do you think of them?
"Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky" is getting a sequel for PSP & PC! This game is respected as one of the best RPGs ever made.
One Of The Best RPGs On PSP Gets A Sequel, And A PC Port
It’s finally official: the second chapter of Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky is coming to Steam and PSP as a digital release next year. The first chapter, already out for PSP, will also be released on Steam at some point this winter.
That means English-speakers will be able to play both games in the beloved RPG series on PSP, Vita, or PC by the end of 2014.
FINAL FAN-TASY REAL
Have you ever seen “Final Fan-tasy REAL”? It’s a pretty cool fan made series based on Final Fantasy 7. You should check it out!
Say Goodbye to Turn-based JRPGs (And is it Really a Bad Thing?)Turn-based combat in JRPGs, which features a player’s party (typically a group of three or more main characters) restrained to selecting their enemies’ route of decimation through a list of various actions like Attack and Magic, is dead. Even the series that essentially gave birth to the immense popularity of turn-based combat in Japanese roleplaying games, Final Fantasy, has left only smidges of its comfortable battle setup in the latest reiterations of the series in the Final Fantasy XIII trilogy. And it’s worth mentioning that Final Fantasy’s home company Square Enix’s E3 trailer of Final Fantasy XV seems to have given up entirely on keeping traditional turn-based combat in the future of the series.
And now for another episode of FantasyAnime’s GUESS THAT SPRITE! :) In the pic I have provided 8 random sprites from several popular US released SNES RPGs and one fan translated RPG.
Can you guess where each one is from? ^.^
Interesting article about how the US has ‘beaten’ Japan in terms of making the best games.
State of the Western RPG
RPGs are usually my favorite games, and they have been for years. Beyond that, they’re among the most popular and interesting games of any era. It’s true for every generation of gaming, from Wizardry through Dungeon Master, Ultima, Fallout, Morrowind, and Dragon Age. No other genre has been so consistently important through every era of home video gaming.
But unlike adventure games or flight simulators, which have been driven into tiny niches, RPGs are still prominent. Skyrim, World Of Warcraft, and Mass Effect are among the most important games of this generation, which is not to mention cult hits like The Witcher or Torchlight.
Legend of Heroes (on PSP) is respected as the best turn-based traditional RPG for the current era of gaming. This is something to greatly appreciate since there are so few traditional RPGs being released now. The recent news is that Legend of Heroes is being ported over to smartphones! So now everyone can experience this gem of a game! :)
Good news: the best Japanese role-playing game you’ve never played is coming to smartphones, in English no less! Previously available only on the PSP, The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky – along with other games in the Legend of Heroes Series – is being ported to smartphones in both Japan and North America by Aeria Games, reports Siliconera.
Presumably, the deal covers iPhone and Android devices. Siliconera adds that the ports will be optimized for mobile devices, and will take advantage of online and social features. We’ve contacted XSEED, which published Trails in the Sky in North America, to find out whether or not it is involved with the smartphone publishing deal.
