This board is for general discussion of Lunar. Especially things such as Lunar merchandise, general discussions about the story that span more than one game, etc.

GungHo/GameArts survey about porting games to PC

Postby Nobiyuki77 » Tue Apr 14, 2015 6:50 pm

Title is self-explanatory. GungHo released an online survey regarding GameArts and the idea of porting their games to PC.

Get to filling out the survey and tell them we want Lunar on PC.

I can't say I've ever scorned a game for bad DRM, though I suppose some people decline to purchase a game because of it, to put it politely.

I did the poll. Thanks for letting us know Nobiyuki! And honestly I asked for Eternal Blue Complete to come to PC, because I feel like that would (a) be construed as a vote for SSSC first if it came down to it, and (b) I've got enough versions of SSSC. I'd buy another, but I'm not the perfect customer for a re-re-re-re-rerelease.

I asked for the same and couldn't have explained the reasoning any better.

And likewise, thanks for the heads up, Nobi!

Yeah, I fudged a little by listing EB as my favorite instead of TSS, and also putting down EBC for a port, to push things toward Lunar 2. I like EB more than EBC, but think the latter is more likely to get ported. I admit to a certain temptation to put down Dragon Song as the one needing a port, though.

Very interesting! Funny thing is, I saw no sign of any such movements on the Japanese side, leading me to think this is an American initiative. By contrast, Game Arts in Japan has been re-releasing old games on PSN for their 30th anniversary, though as expected, it was all Grandia and no Lunar...I suspect the Studio Alex issue continues to thwart ports as opposed to HOSS-like remakes.

I suppose that may potentially limit what can be expected from the US side even if this is a US-only project, both in terms of versions and translations. Could anything other than a HOSS PC port be possible? I just don't know, unless they're ready to do some serious rights-wranging, I guess.

Sorry. I had to ask for a graphically updated TSS. I couldn't help it.

You've probably seen it though.

BTW, we should keep in mind that Capcom once did the same thing, and I remember it having lots of options about future MegaMan games and lots of platforms. This survey happened in like 2012. Absolutely NOTHING came out of that. But on the other hand, yes, GameArts has been re-releasing games lately so who knows?
We just want to help them if you think about it. Besides playing the games we already own, we want to give them money for a new version of a game. And we want them to profit.

I came across a link to the survey on Facebook, and I immediately ran over here!! :)
I felt like I was under a lot of pressure while taking the survey! I carefully scrutinized every question and answer, the fate of a potential Lunar port hangs in the balance! How was I supposed to choose just ONE Lunar game I would "most like to see made into a PC port"?! @_@ Aaah!!

I eventually sided with an EBC port. :) This has been the most intense thing that has happened to me so far this week! :p lol (Not sure if that's a good thing, or just incredibly sad...)
All joking aside though, this is kind of exciting! :D It's great to see GameArts asking the fans' opinions. <3

Not such a bad thing. I've been longing for this moment for so long.
I sided with EBC too. Its obvious. It's just the one that's had the least releases of the first 2 games.
I don't care if Lunar 1 would come after Lunar 2. I think they should just remake or re-release Lunar 2 before anything else at this point.
If they keep doing Lunar 1, not many people might care? I dunno. Maybe they might care. But it's common opinion to see people tired of it's re-releases. I wouldnt mind it at all though.

As soon as I saw AlphaOmegaSin video on this survey, I didn't even watch his video first. I jumped on that survey and filled it out! Like others here, I decided to choose EBC as a PC port too. I personally chose EBC because the only way you can really play EBC is on the PSX, unless you buy a Sega CD and play the original. Lunar SSS has a million ports, but Lunar 2 has nothing. Plus, Lunar 2 is my favorite in the series so I am a bit bias. :P

I've managed to get 3 of my friends to fill out the survey too, who played the games and liked it. Maybe I can get a few more.
Anyone else getting others to fill it out?

I've seen the survey cycling through my feed on Facebook, and I'm pleasantly surprised at how many of my friends are taking it! I'm even more surprised to see so many people making positive comments about Lunar when I see a link to the survey! Lunar fans do exist and walk among us!! ;) lol!

Got one more friend to fill it out : D
Yes they do exist... such a shock : O
I see lots of comments on youtube and other pages that talk about this news.
With how sales and reception had been for the PSP release, I thought we were doomed.

So, looks like the survey results lead to Grandia II getting a HD port for PC. I'm disappointed nothing Lunar came from this. :(
