Re: Least favorite Lunar 1 or Lunar 2 character

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. (And I'm saying t...

Re: Fastest Game Time

Y'know I've played through the games so many times, but have yet to try anything like a speed run... I mean I've talked to every NPC so many times that I'm not actually missing anything any more. Maybe I should try one of these days, see how fast I can get through it all. I'm not too hot on low-leve...

Re: Noriyuki Iwadare and Kei Shigema on Honmaru Radio

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...

Noriyuki Iwadare and Kei Shigema on Honmaru Radio

Noriyuki Iwadare (composer for Lunar, Grandia, Ace Attorney) was on a recent episode of Honmaru Radio's "Creators' Cafe", along with Kei Shigema (the Lunar series' story/scenario writer): http://honmaru-radio.com/geko0003/ It's a Japanese-language program. I'm posting this up here partly a...

Re: In-world sequels and myth building

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...

Re: High quality S-Video switch box??

I can't answer the question directly since I don't use S-Video cables any more, but... are component cables or S-Video cables supposed to provide better quality? I've never had the chance to try both on the same TV to make an accurate comparison, and everything I play older systems on now has compon...

Re: Would you buy a remake of EB?

This is something that i've been praying would happen for years! When SSSC got ported to PSP I was sure Lunar 2 would be close behind, but sadly it did not happen. Well, the Japanese version of EBC did get released on PSN so it's playable on a PSP. ...there seems to be absolutely zero interest in d...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I've been going full-on cyberpunk. I just finished a play-through of Shadowrun Returns, and I'm going to go onto the other two games in the series (Dragonfall and Hong Kong) pretty soon. This is in addition to learning the rules of Shadowrun 5e itself, designing a Shadowrun campaign to GM in maybe a...

Re: Magical School Lunar, Sega Saturn, My Life in Gaming, and Professor Abrasive

Long back there were some efforts for a Saturn translation patch, but that was also stalled long back. If I recall, it was going to have to be done via emulation -- no way to use the actual Saturn itself for it.

...I haven't heard anything about those efforts being revived though. KF

Re: Silver Star Story Touch may disappear with iOS 11

Regarding emulators, I've had limited success using John NES, Super Retro, and GENSPlus (for NES, SNES, and Genesis, respectively). Nothing too complicated though and they seem pretty bare-bones -- though they work on my weak 5+-year-old MP3 player. Also Genesis emulation in general seems to be hard...
