Depends. It's been long enough since Shining Force Diablo that a 4p psp one wouldn't be a bad idea.

If it's one of those Shining Forces, then do no want. EXA was one of the worst rpgs I played on the PS2.


And yay half-minute hero 2!

Wasn't there a really poorly received pseudo-spiritual sequel to Half Minute Hero done by the developers recently?

Jikan de Phantasia. But it was a totally different kind of game.

I only played the first one for a few hours, but it was fun. I think shouta was a fan of both.

I mean an srpg would be rad, but sort of don't expect that anymore.

Idea Factory was publishing it. Should be all that needs said.

You know your platform is in a rut when the platform that sells 3000 units a week has more games covered in Famitsu than you.

Probably I've read it wrong and it's a Shining Heart game and not Shining Force

I'm going to edit the OP

To be fair, most of those are multiplatform.

bad gameplay lol
Okay, it was probably in the last Famitsu thread, but does anyone know what Kamen Rider Battle: Ganbaride Card Battle Taisen for the DS scored? Might be in this issue, not sure.

EDIT: Never mind. 7/8/8/7. Not horrible at all.

Shining Hearts.... lol I bet it's another Sega trap. I wonder what Musketeer is. I also see Last Story there as I expected, since it was in Jump.

OK thanks - didn't know what it was so I thought you already knew it was a Shining Force game. So the mystery continues...
Sega trademarked SHINING WIND but not Shining Heart, so maybe it's not even a Sega game?

1. Hardcore Gaming 101's going to do a short spot on Time Of Fantasia, meaning I can actually find out what it's like!

2. Half-Minute Hero 2 WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. It's the best PSP game, people. It's science!

Time Of Fantasia, done without the help of the many collaborators who worked on Half-Minute Hero. This means we need information about helpers RIGHT NOW.

It was released a year and a half ago. What about it?

What is any good? Just assumed it had a chance to come out in North America since every other Shining series game ( that I know of anyway) after the Saturn era seemed to release here.

It was actually really good for a game that had Shining Force in it that wasn't developed by Neverland or Amusement Vision. It was a SRPG, but with only five controlled characters without block movement. I enjoyed it for what I played.

Should just incorporate it into other modern Sega franchises

You sure that's Shining Hearts? It might just be the poor quality of the pic, but that looks like a &#12472; to me.

It's Shining Hearts. There's a scan out now. It's a traditional RPG, looks totally generic like all Shining games these days.

The scan is out. The logo says Shining Hearts in English.

Shining Hearts zzzzzzzzzzzz

Sega never learns anything

That is one awful logo - a heart with a key through it???
And graphics look very nondescript.

Danganronbo looks much more interesting to me.

There is nothing wrong with Sonic games, it's just fan perception that makes them seem bad!!!! :lol
That only applies to the two Adventure games, it doesn't account for everything after them.
