It was one of my favorite N64 games as well.

Of course I got the sinister ending where they say your legend was forgotten by the people over time or some such. I would have liked to play through it again to get a different ending, but I let a friend borrow the game years ago and never got it back.

I don't usually bump threads like this, but I got this issue and there is a Dracula X Chronicles ad that says:

"At long last the Beaumont family's quest to destroy Dracula..."

Beaumont?

Did I miss something or is this another LOL konami? BTW the ad's font looks like something I did in paint.

I don't know what his deal was at Square-Enix, but hopefully he can either lower his ambitions a bit or oversee the completion of this series.

While this is very cool and I would buy it in a heart beat I wish it was more like Ogre Battle than Tactics. There are tons SPRGs these days and while none of them are as good as TO/FFT there aren't any games like the original or OB64.

Somehow I doubt Matsuno is going to make another Ogre Battle-style game, especially considering the two Ogre Battle titles (Gaiden and 64) after the original weren't even touched by Matsuno. If anything he will come up with something original but still strategic in nature. He got a lot of flack for FFT being too similar to TO and his two games after FFT were pretty original (VS, FF12). Plus, if it takes advantage of the wiimote, that's another strike against it being an FFT clone.

That's still not as sad as the situation wth Tetsuya Takahashi who, now that he's with Nintendo, may take his third shot with a third company at finishing the same damned series.

HL 2 Orange Box-basically say it's perfect

Wow, considering they most likely played the inferior console version.
