I haven't heard about the Arc the Lad Collection in a long time. At the risk of looking like a goof, is it out? Is is late? Working Designs never releases a game on time, even within the same year, so I don't think I missed it, but I would hate it if I did.
|Nope, not yet. WD's website slates the games release for the fourth quarter of this year. So, assuming they don't behave true to form, the game will be relased soon. The game itself will retail for about $75. Why so high? It's four games. The collector's edition (a la the Lunar series) looks like it will contain a metal Arc the Lad "compass" in addition to the usual WD omake.|
I was wondering in every RPG why do the NPCs always talk about whats happening in the game? How come they neevr talk about anything particulary intresting? Like what they had for breakfast? I mean a whole town shouldn't be teeling you about how a man in a black cape went this way? Why r'nt these people normal?!?
|WHat they ate for breakfast actually doesn't seem that interesting. What's amazing to me is that these people divulge their entire life stories to whatever PC's tap them on the shoulder. If Shenmue captured one thing realistically, it's that random people on the street have absolutly no interest in talking to you -- no matter how spikey your hair is.|
You're not the only one that thought Hitomi should have stayed in Gaea! Yay! So much for those stupid "mature" endings. But Dilandau made up for that! He's the best VILLAN ever! (no denying THAT!)

PS - Have you seen the Escaflowne movie yet? I haven't, but I heard it's very good.
True, Hitomi had friends at home. Still, she could have lived in Gaea and "visited" home whenever she really wanted to. Is this a spoiler? Not really. In the openings of the first eight episodes she says "Was it all just a dream? Or maybe a vision...?" This implies that she DOES eventually go home from Gaea in the very beginning, since the sentence questions all that she saw in the mysterious world over the sky.
The movie is good, but different. A lot of the characters have major aspects of their backgrounds/personalities monkeyed with. Hitomi is weaker and more passive. Naria and Eria, Folken's feline soliders, are recast as simple dancers in a bar.
The Last Laugh:And there we go. Here's some ideal topics for tomorrow.
If you made an RPG, what setting would you give it? Classic Tolkienesque or something less standard? Fantasy? Sci-fi? Modern Day? Noir?
That'll do for tomorrow. Oh, and if you want something silly, What RPG character's "powers" would you most like to have. How would you use them? To benefit mankind, lower gas-prices, and stop evil, or for your own reasons. (Say, a personal quest to beat the tar out of the Chicago Bears offensive line because you bet forty bucks on them. Just be careful, you'd have to be something crazy to survive that fight.
and will sleep.
