General Discussion / Dragon Quest: Your Story
« on: April 06, 2019, 11:46:13 am »
So, don't know how many know this already; but it looks like Dragon Quest V is getting a movie adaptation. Trailer can be seen here:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ANB1TBs6RRA

To debut in Japan on August. I think it looks good; and certainly promising. Even if it's quite likely the hero may end with Bianca. I also like that they chose V. It's among my most favorite DQ's. Even recently got the mobile port to play it again. Hopefuly the movie also gets a worldwide release.

So, thoughts?

Does anyone think Cross could be among the chosen 20 titles to be included in the PS1 Classic? So far only 5 titles have been revealed for the thing, back when it was first announced, so that still leaves 15 titles to reveal. Well, possibly more, if they go for region-exclusive titles like what Nintendo did with their NES and SNES Classics.

Personally, I'd hope so. Trigger missed out being on the SNES Classic, so it'd be nice if at least Cross makes it in to this. It could also give it another rerelease and exposure, considering it only ever got one, for the Playstation Network. Compared to Trigger and is rereleases, Cross is starting to get quite a bit behind.

So, what does everybody think?

General Discussion / E3 2018
« on: June 10, 2018, 07:32:40 pm »
So, E3 is upon us again. Anyone been paying attention?

I have, and I must say, I like the new info on stuff like Fallout 76 and Kingdom Hearts III; and I know more will come later on. Also looking forward for new info on stuff like Spyro Reignited Trilogy. Certainly one E3 I'm paying attention to, hahahaha.

Chrono / Gameplay Casual Discussion / Minor thing about Biggs and Wedge
« on: September 07, 2015, 02:19:53 am »
I tried to search if this was already on the site, but couldn't find it. Just in case...

So today I was reading up info on FFVI, and found a place:

http://www.cavesofnarshe.com/forums/ipb/index.php?showtopic=14264

That talked about a V-Jump issue that had notes about pre-development stuff. You know, how characters and the like were or would have had before we see them in the final product, and stuff like that.

The thing had a part where Biggs and Wedge (the FFVI characters) answering a few questions (the post only has two, but I don't know how many actually were), and found one was:

"--Valigarmanda made you both disappear... so are you dead?
Biggs: We traveled through dimensions and ended up in Leene Square in Chrono Trigger!
Wedge: Bekkler found us and now we have new jobs. (haha)"

And then below is this note from the poster:

"Please note that this came out of the Jan. 96 issue, 2 months before Chrono Trigger was released in Japan."

Although I think it's mistaken there, since if it really was the Jan. 96 issue, then it was almost a year later. But anyway...

And well, that's it. Something really minor, but find interesting and amusing. Whether or not this was actually serious or just a joke... well, I guess it's up to personal interpretation. Not like this got mentioned again. That I know of, anyway.

But in any case, with the canonicity left ambigious I'm gonna accept that now as headcannon. :wink:

General Discussion / E3 2014
« on: June 11, 2014, 12:23:51 am »
So, anyone here watched/watching this?

For my part, I was only interested in seeing Nintendo's stuff. I found it quite interesting, specially with Hyrule Warriors and Xenoblade Chronicles, plus the extra info with Smash.

I must say I laughed the way they opened that video. So amusing. Specially the Iwata-Reggie fight scene.  :lol:

All in all, it has convinced me to give the Wii U a chance. Perhaps not possible in the foreseeable future, but I suppose eventually I'll be able to get that chance to get one.

Chrono / Gameplay Casual Discussion / The Legend of RPG
« on: March 08, 2014, 12:23:38 pm »
Well, I learned of this a little too late, but anyway...

So during the afternoon of today (in Japan's local time), the Japanese Philharmonic Orchestra held a concert called The Legend of RPG (http://jagmo.jp/), where they basically played many background tracks of RPG's. Chrono Trigger was among these games.

http://jagmo.jp/images/information_songs_bono.png

This is the chart with the songs played. Chrono Trigger is the second one. While they played 4 pieces, 3 of them are medleys, so the overall number of songs is actually higher than 4. Since I know little Japanese, I can only tell a few of the songs, but currently I can see Frog's Theme, Guardia Castle's, the Main Theme, etc.

Though it'd be nice to have someone translate it whole to see the whole list.

As I mentioned before, this already passed, since the concerts were held at 3 and 7 PM of Japan's local time. Oh well, what a shame.

Welcome / Birthday / Seeya! Forum / Milestone reached!
« on: July 02, 2013, 12:36:01 pm »
For a long time, I actually though I wouldn't live long enough to be 20... and yet here I am, finally on this day. I'm glad to have been wrong all this time. Although... to be honest, it just doesn't feel like much. I don't feel much different from being 19. Well anyway, hopefully I still have a long road ahead of me, and even if not, I'll still make the most out of it.

General Discussion / The hacking of websites...
« on: June 27, 2013, 10:08:17 pm »
I don't know how many have heard already, but it seems that several Pokémon sites were hacked just recently, all done by the same person/group.

Quite personally, I'm worried just how seemingly easy is for someone to break in and steal data. I always make sure to have different passwords for everything and change them at the slightest sign that they could be in danger, but sometimes even with all those precautions I don't feel quite safe...

General Discussion / 2013 and the Sun
« on: January 02, 2013, 01:38:02 am »
I don't know how much the topic is known here, but I decided to bring it up either way.

Now that we are in 2013, our sun is gonna reach it's cyclical peak once again when it comes to levels of activity. This happens like around 11 years on average, but for a long time I've seen many a place noting how in this year, the activity may rise to the point that the solar storms released may become too strong.

While said levels would still be harmless to us, what's dangerous is their effect on our technology. Back in 1859 the storm was so strong it dealt quite some damage to the telegraph lines of North America and Europe. If such a storm where to hit us now, it's effects would undoubtedly be worse considering how much more things rely on electricity in this day and age.

So what do you guys think? That it could happen? That it will? What consequences would bring to civilization as a whole in the worst-case scenario? Got something else to add about? Perhaps even correcting something I may have gotten wrong up there or just to comment on the topic?

Welcome / Birthday / Seeya! Forum / At the ends of the decade...
« on: July 02, 2012, 04:11:04 am »
So July the 2nd rolls by once more, and I turn 19 now.

I must say, this last year has been quite something. College isn't that much tougher as I thought it'd be, but I must admit I haven't done as well as I would've expected. A good deal is my fault willingly and another seems to show that I'm quite into an unfortunate habit of overlooking/forgetting stuff and not so much being not learning stuff. Seems I have a new challenge for the years ahead, but I won't let that slow me down.

Also, just yesterday was very first time participating in something as big as Elections. I voted and all that, but even looking now I doubt the side I voted for is gonna win. It's a bit unfortunate but nothing can be done about it now.

Well, time to go on with life, whatever mishaps and hurdles lies therein. Maybe I'm just that pessimistic, but I think they are gonna out-weight whatever good will be coming this way too.

Welcome / Birthday / Seeya! Forum / My my, finally THAT day...
« on: July 02, 2011, 04:00:53 am »
I'm posting this now in the case I may not have the chance to later, but seeing July the 2nd has just started (at least from my perspective), then better to do it now.

So now it's the time of my 18th Birthday. Man, time sure flies... I've finally finished with High School (though the actual Graduation isn't until two weeks from now), and soon to be in College sometime further down the road. Now that by law I'll be consider an Adult and Citizen, I guess that brings in a whole deal of responsibility that I'll be honest, I'm not really that excited about, but I know I can't just ran away from it, so even if I don't like it, I can't avoid this.

But hey, I've managed with life so far, despite it's ups and downs, so better to face it with a positive attitude than fearing the moment it comes. I may be not fully ready for it yet, even at this point, but then again, who isn't? It's just another stage in life drastically different from the previous one, so I just say:

Bring it! :kamina

(Though of course, first it would come the time of celebration. I guess it must come that period of excitement before reality takes over, haha... haaa...  :oops:)

General Discussion / Longer YouTube videos?
« on: December 09, 2010, 05:45:24 pm »
So I saw this in another forum, but apperantly, YouTube has allowed several accounts to allow upload of videos longer than the 15-minutes limit. And looks like I got it as well:

Anyone else got this?

And now I turn 17 this day. Wow, time sure flies (though it sure feels like a long wait  :lol:), just one more year and I would be...

Still not yet, though. ... Now I should probably get some sleep... (It's midnight over here at the time of writing  :roll:)

General Discussion / This may be not new...
« on: February 20, 2010, 04:52:09 pm »
... but since it wasn't mentioned here (well, as far as I'm aware of, but I don't think it was)...

Anyway, back in August, months after the game Super Robot Wars K was released, only in Japan as it is the nature of the series, there came an announcement of Namco Bandai apologizing for using certain music in the game.

This was one of two (as far as I know, it was only two):

(Notorious after the first 50 seconds)

So yeah...

Here is mentioned announcement.

Translated (not a good one, but it gets the point across):

August 19, 2009

Just one hour ago or so I turned 16.

I was thinking of posting this, well, an hour ago, or even before that. But here it is anyway, better late than never, as they say.
