  1. Matsuno loves him some obscure bullshit. Really, old RPGs in general were fond of that. Denim just won't stop moping about this whole Kachua situation, so it's time to go deal with her once and for all. Chapter 4 Banisha Castle: Unadvanced Warfare
  2. Didn't expect Wesnoth to go all We Live In A Society like that. Given that it's pretty blindly adhering to the Tolkien-style of fantasy races I'm not sure it's the best venue for commentaries on racism lol I didn't know there was some special Tier 3 for the Orcish Assassin that's just randomly relegated to being an NPC class. Kinda weird that the line just ends at Tier 2 if it's got a possible promotion available, but I guess the unit's annoying enough already.
  3. Shelley's gone missing, and only a very specific and convoluted set of steps can help us find her. Once we've finished with that mess, we head where the plot actually wanted us to go and get a sneak preview of a very spooky sidequest. Chapter 4 Lanbees Hill: I got some shit wrong in an earlier post and I went back to edit it but SF wouldn't let me so now it's just wrong forever I guess and that has nothing to do with this update at all but it's annoying me now
  4. Remaster: Jagged Alliance 2: This one's actually been remade twice now, but the remakes were both terrible, as was basically every sequel and spinoff to either. I wouldn't necessarily mind another remake, but with such a spotty track record I'd prefer just a straight remaster, especially since it's a bit difficult to get it running properly on some modern systems now. Would be neat if they took some ideas from the 1.13 mod too, but even base JA2 is good enough on its own imo. Pokemon Colosseum: Or XD, but I have a slight preference for the first of the two. A compilation re-release would be great too. Perhaps expand the player's options in Colosseum a little bit more (in particular add the shadow moves XD had), and maybe update the mechanics a bit to match more modern games in the series, but otherwise neither needs a lot of touching up. Either Tellius FE Oh My Fucking God: I no longer own either and they're super expensive and my poor computer is too much of a potato to emulate them like please Nintendo I'm suffering here free me from your prison of artificial scarcity Remake: Valkyrie Profile Lenneth: This game's gotten ported once or twice I believe, but it could probably stand to be straight up remade, given its fairly archaic and obscure design, and a revamp of the script probably couldn't hurt either. Still, I'd prefer to keep most of the game's old aesthetic (aside from the portrait art) or at least something similarly appealing, and any replacements for said portrait art would hopefully not be as generic as Anatomia's artstyle was. Ogre Battle 64: March of the Black Queen would also be great, but this one in particular would be exciting to me since it's a bit of a pain to get it working properly on emulators and I don't own a N64 anymore to run physical copies on, and while I love it there's definitely some improvements that could be made. Plus it's the best game in the series so it deserves it the most. Resident Evil Outbreak and File #2: I know this isn't happening in any way whatsoever but I can dream. If they wanted to make it more like the RE2 Remake I'd have 0 complaints about that, since that remake was excellent. Just keep the online as a thing please, and allow for local co-op as well so if the servers die the game isn't kinda screwed.
  5. Eh, just think of them as regular-old assassins and call it a day. It's far from the only anachronism in the Ogre series, really. By his own admission, Star Wars is a big influence on Matsuno's work. It's at its most blatant here, but you can see it in other games too. The Foriner family reunion isn't over yet! We encounter both the missing sister and the patriarch of the family and start an annoying and obtuse recruitment process that would put Thracia's Xavier to shame. Chapter 4 Banhamuba Shrine: Rocky Relationship
  6. Matsuno seems to love having ninjas (and occasionally samurai and martial-arts-using monks) in his medieval Europe-esque settings, so it's probably best not to question it. We'll be meeting up with the Filaha Order, ignoring the game's intended solution to dealing with them so we can learn the secrets of flight, and receiving a flurry of plot reveals and a touching family reunion. Chapter 4 Brigantes Castle: Faith Gives You Wings
  7. Do you actually know what bourgeois means or did you learn the definition from the same place where you picked up the term "race communist"?
  8. Lawful route only, but yeah. It's a Warren Report scene, but let's just say Selye's confrontation with him there ends poorly. Yet more reasons to never go Lawful! Also I'm pretty sure Kachua's not there for Vice's execution, though that one civilian sprite kinda looks like her so I can see how you'd make that mistake. Another semi-major character is there, if you look closely at the crowd, but we haven't met her yet and I don't think Vice ever did either. Chapter 4's gonna be off to a bit of a slow start, but at least we get to see a familiar and perhaps overly-friendly face and buy some items we'll sorely need for the coming war. Chapter 4 Amorika: A Lans War in Valeria
  9. Given how frequently videogames use Lawful and Chaotic to mean Lawful Good and Chaotic Evil, it's kinda fun to see a game that uses them to represent something more akin to Lawful Neutral and Chaotic Good. Jury's still out on what Neutral is supposed to represent as a route tbh. Today we finally finish Chapter 3, truly kicking off the war between Valeria as a whole and the Dark Knights. We also see our sister's fabulous new look, and watch a much beloved(?) character make his final appearance in this branch of the tale. Chapter 3 Fiduc Castle: Extreme Makeover Valeria Edition
  10. Dude must've thought he was in FE and was gonna get a magic sword or something. There's still technically some use for all that Intelligence but it requires some rare equipment we don't have yet, and frankly other folks can pull the same tricks while providing additional benefits. While the game wants us to head towards Fiduc Castle, we'll be making a brief detour to Fort Bodo, where we meet what will swiftly become the majority of our foes for the remainder of the game. Chapter 3 Fort Bodo: Stoned Cold
  11. OG Tactics Ogre's a real winner with the names. "Aloser" is still the best one imo. Wow, I've gotten way off schedule here! Let's try and get back on track. Chapter 3 Rime: A Sudden but Inevitable Betrayal
  12. Certainly helps that this game also doesn't let you save yourself into an unwinnable situation the way FFT does. I know FFT has a lot of sloppy design like that, but you'd think the game that came first would be the one with these kinds of problems! I don't think Vice's duels give you that choice, but then Vice is usually kind of a weak opponent. Hush, you Three Houses slowed me down a lot, as it turns out. Go Black Eagles! Things have been a bit busy for me lately in general, actually, and I've only got a small-ish update ready. Sorry about that, I promise I'll rerail shit in a bit. Chapter 3 Wyoburi Volcano: Ancestry.Lans
  13. If y'all think the classes are complicated here, just wait until the day I get to Ogre Battle 64. For my money I've always preferred the Tactics Ogre series, aside from FFTA2, which is arguably the best of this particular "family" of Strategy RPGs imo. If you're interested in Tactics Ogre, though, I'd actually kinda recommend the PSP version over this one (even though I admit to preferring this one), if only for the QoL improvements and greatly improved script. Three Houses ain't gonna slow me down a bit! Let's get to Coritani to liberate it yet again, and encounter an old friend who adds yet more evidence that strategy games are kind of a poor format for duels. Chapter 3 Coritani Castle Redux: Irvine de Robespierre
  14. Let's get to Coritani right now, with no pitstops or distractions along the way, and definitely deal with the folks we've been told to deal with immediately. Chapter 3 Part Whatever: Death and Rebirth
  15. Alright, let's march to Brigantes and finally put an end to whatever stragglers Barbatos left behind. Chapter 3 Brigantes Castle: Wings of Love
