Re: New Working Designs website(?)

My guess is it could be something Victor (He I believe still holds all the trademarks for Working Designs through his Gaijinworks label) has done as a handful of Working Designs titles are available online. He probably wanted to secure and hold onto workingdesigns.com in case more titles release thr...

Re: Lunar 2 Publisher's Prototype Box | Working Designs (1998)

Aww man. I missed this post. Yeah ^^^ hopefully whomever won the auction realized what they got hold of. The artwork used on the back of the original box is interesting. That's the CD art used on the North American LUNAR EB Sega CD disk. Unlike TSS, EB didn't receive any variants on the disk artwork...

Re: Sakura Taisen for Saturn English patch

I imported Sakura Taisen on the Saturn back around Y2K. It's a fairly dynamic visual novel for the time period considering it's primary competition upon release was undoubtedly Tokimeki Memorial, and even more so today considering many VNs are select-a-choice type narrative trees. The series has alw...

Re: Mega CD Lunar Eternal Blue (Not For Resale) Demo

There's shots on the main page in the merchandise section. I only remember it because one of the things that always stood out for me was how the characters didn't follow along one another like a train in the main games. I'm trying to learn Japanese but it's super rusty for me (I thankfully didn't st...

Re: Lunar ONLINE?

Probably would never happen. Game Arts has been kind of sitting on both LUNAR and Grandia (Grandia has had some PSN and Steam releases). At the absolute least we could eventually see some sort of digital release for past LUNAR titles that aren't mobile, but I believe that's fairly far fetched. There...

Re: Seeking Eternal Blue Mail-In

When I quickly found out how much just the guide itself sold for used right after I bought mine there was no way I was going to send that mail in card from the back of it. I was ...

Re: In This Thread I Explain Why This Game Isn't Canon.

My only major qualm with Dragon Song was I feel it was a bit of a missed opportunity with the LUNAR franchise in that it attempted to re-hash the love formula of SSS and EB with new characters when prior games had already established some potential characters to use. Silver Star Story in particular ...

Re: In-world sequels and myth building

I was reading over your post and the responses, and from my personal experience I believe Trails of Cold Steel does a fairly good job as a modern series for building up threat and characters reacting to it in the way you are describing. All of the Cold Steel titles are effectively direct sequels to ...

Re: The Goddess Althena is Cancelled!

I'm glad that whole Hiro thing was pointed out 'cause that too really confused me about Eternal Blue in both the original and doubly more in the remake. If Althena's clairvoyance was so good that she could see that far into the future, after seemingly accepting mortality (by her own words), then why...

Re: What Are You Currently Playing?

I'm playing Omega Labyrinth Z. The Asian market price drop version hit markets in Feb & I wanted to see why PQube's English translation was shot down. Now having been a few hours into the game I clearly see why, although honestly it took me no more than thirty minutes to start cringing.

Re: Growlanser 1

I can't see GL1 ever getting a US release of sorts. GL has always had a really fubbed time in the English market. When Working Designs went to release the combo II and III they stated that Sony wouldn't allow them to be split as two titles. It was a fair call on Sony's behalf honestly, considering b...

Re: Finally finished this, mini-review/comparison

Borgan's difficulty was pretty legendary. Main things that helped were: (1) having leveled up just enough to get an upgrade to Ronfar's all-heal spell (can't remember offhand which one though) (2) equipping an accessory on each character to lower damage from earth/thunder attacks (can buy in Neo-Va...

Re: Finally finished this, mini-review/comparison

I've only beat Eternal Blue on the Sega CD once back in the day when I bought it (it's the one LUNAR title I have that I'm most disappointed in, in that the only copy I could source was a FuncoLand copy that was just the disk). I remember the absolute worst point of the game for me was Borgan withou...

Re: Playstation Classic Edition!

In terms of it being "classic" Playstation titles I feel the list is okay although it's not anything that would warrant me buying it. I still have most of those titles regardless. The most surprising on the list for myself personally is Revelations Persona, although I'm certain the reason ...

Thanks for posting this. My PS2 doesn't connect to any of the modern TVs I have in my house and my old CRT I do have is something I don't like to clunk around. I also have like over a hundred PS2 titles still including a ton of Japanese imports so this gives me a chance to dust them off and get back...

Re: An anomaly in the Lunar series

On the less is more topic the biggest gripe I had in the US release (I believe it's similar in JP) of TSS is that sans some ellipses and a few lines of dialogue Alex for the most part is a silent protagonist. There is absolutely nothing inherently wrong with a silent protagonist because in many case...
