    On that note, GameArts are doing a survey to gauge interest in possible PC ports of their games like Grandia, Lunar and Ragnarok Odyssey:

    http://gamearts.pgtb.me/G11qsW

    Gonna fill it in now.

    Filled out. Lunar on PC would be pretty cool I guess. But...

    "What features do you find the most important for a PC port?"
    -DRM

    I hope they can fill it with enough DRM to satisfy me.

    Wouldn't mind seeing a Grandia 1 and 2 PC port, straight from the Sega consoles without any sort of stuttering problems and the like. Lunar too, but more likely than not they would have to throw away the Working Designs localization for the PSP one. Kind of a bummer.

    Ports of the Grandia games would be cool, especially if modders could toy around with the rather interesting combat system. Lunar too (hopefully it won't be the awful PSP version).

    Grandia 2 has a pc port (I haven't tested it but from what I have read it is a rather good port).

    I recall having problems with Grandia 2's PC port. But I don't remember the details, it was a long time ago.

    Good to see the 3DS get some more games in the EU.

    I don't think it's worth buying. It's included in Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection (PSP) which is IMO the definitive version of the game.

    New trailer for Imperial SaGa:



    An f2p browser game... RIP SaGa series :(

    Deception IV: The Nightmare Princess
    arrives in Europe on July 17th for PS4, PS3, and Vita. I never played any of the Deception games; Wikipedia has the genre listed as "action strategy RPG" for what it's worth.

    Live action trailer:



    :hmmm:

    There is also actual SaGa game coming. Though I don't think pretty much anything has been revealed about it since the announcement.

    Of course Bee is still a fan. I swear after that whole censorship deal I can't mention Fortune Summoners or Reccettear without someone bitching about Fulgur's escapades.
    Show Spoiler
    And here I am doing the same, sort of.


    ---

    Just downloaded the demo now, sounds strange as hell, but I'll try it.

    I actually had no idea about any censorship thing so I googled it and it looks like they added towels to the bathing scene in Fortune Summoners... and that's it?

    Yup, and people are still whining about it.

    ...As far as I know anyway. There's probably more to it than that , but I don't feel like digging anything up.

    Kaga Shouzou, AKA that guy who made Fire Emblem, just announced that he's cooperating with a few familiar figures in making a new game... with some software called the "SRPG Studio".

    Kaga said he would release the game for free when (if) he finishes it.

    But he also said that the project was suffering from severe shortages of art materials, particularly unit chips and battle animations. He actually went as far as asking fans to donate materials (musics, arts, effects, etc.) compatible with the SRPG Studio.

    Personally I'm rather sceptical of the final quality of the game (provided it would be finished at all), but nevertheless I wish the old man luck on his endevour. It's nice to see that not all legends of old have fallen to making mobile games and MMORPGs.
