Re: Magical School Lunar translation [in progress!]

Yeah, I'm not opposed to appropriate localization - I don't mind if the text drifts away from the literal meaning as long as it keeps the feel. Thanks so much! I suspect I'll be taking advantage of that. :) I'd really love to have you work on it if the timing can work out. I'm working on translatin...

Re: Magical School Lunar translation [in progress!]

So, uh, I'm gonna be honest that I'm not much of a fan of Suppertails66's reasons for the "Unworked Designs" patches (I think he goes overboard with the dislike of the localization efforts, which on the whole I found to be quite good with only a few gripes). But, I'm totally fine with the ...

Re: Hi all!

Welcome to the forums! Glad to see you around (and sorry for the delay in activating your account {--};;). Huh, you replay Eternal Blue for the Sega CD often then? More than the remake for PS1/Saturn? That's quite rare -- EB never got the kind of love that SSS did (unfortunately -- it was always my ...

Re: Frustrated with retro gaming prices....especially regarding the Sega Saturn

Hm, well, I have a lot of love for the Saturn in spite of the paltry support it got in the US. I have a Model 1 US Saturn (literally bought it the month it came out in 1995 -- which is also why I never have or never will buy a system at launch ever again) that still works perfectly fine, and a Japan...

This is the only one that's 100% mine -- for the other ones, some other folks on the Shrine ...

Re: Fastest Game Time

I feel like Lunar: Legend and Silver Star Harmony would be the easiest to do a speedrun of, mostly because of how the difficulty was almost laughably easy for both. (In LL, it was an actual challenge trying to die. And in SSH, during one of battles against Ghaleon where you're supposed to lose, I wa...

Re: Song of the moment

I've been listening to more lo-fi hip-hop (I think that's what the genre is called?) while working lately, and a few weeks back came across this album, Plethoria, by L'Indecis. It's freely available on YouTube, but I also went ahead and bought it (only 4 euros) considering how much I enjoyed it: htt...

But why would they still not say why? If my theory was true they could have still lied and make an excuse about there being more space for new music and stuff since it was done differently. Eh... it's a mystery, but it didn't seem like they were dodging the question. Just that it didn't come up. I'...

Re: Lunar Game Comparisons?

I think I can name a couple. Vay - This sort of gets in because it was localized by Working Designs, and I played it immediately before ever playing Lunar I (it's also the game that got me into RPGs). Looking back on it now though it's sort of a standard JRPG with the sort of plot you see in dozens ...

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. Oh nerts, that's right. I never played either so I have no idea what either one is about. Now that I think of it, would the Arc the Lad series ...

So what if he's a Hufflepuff? Not everyone can be in Gryffindor. Wait. Really though, as much as people like to harp on Hufflepuff, in reality that's the house that most everyone would want to be in -- or if not in, you'd at least want to be around the kind of folks in Hufflepuff.

Ok I had a chance to listen to it. There was actually a fair bit of talk about Lunar -- from the Sega CD days through the PSP. Mr. Iwadare talked a bit about the process of composing music to really fit the storyline and feel of the world, and the heroes' journeys (along with several comments/discus...

To be honest the only game where I get this feeling is with Lunar. I've only played a bit of Phantasy Star (PS1 and half of PS2), and never Langrisser (though Alunissage if I recall is a major Langrisser fan -- would love to hear her thoughts to expand on this too). ...come to think of it, I'm not s...
