The sega of today doesn't deserve the sega of yesterday. Let The Shining series die.

If by that you mean the Sega of today doesn't deserve the Camelot of yesterday, I agree.

Don't act so shocked. This isn't the first time Tony and Kikuta are working together. They both also worked on SoraMizu, which was Kikuta's first adult game job. :lol

Fun fact: Throughout his career, Kikuta has composed for 5 non-porno games, and 5 porno games. :lol

Yay, more awesome music news.

I hope they found a way to make the other 3 modes more fun in this one.

On the 1 hand, it sounds like the music will be less parodic butt-rock. I'll miss you, Koshiro. On the other hand, those are awesome contributors. *cheers*

PS3 Tales has a new visual style (added 12:06)

It looks like there are a few details on the new PS3 Tales game in Famitsu's interview with the Tales series staff this week.

Not surprisingly, given the non-Talesish artwork that was shared at the game's unveiling, the staff discusses the visual effect they're going for with the game. They're aiming to deliver a visual expression that's different from the anime touch of Tales of Vesperia and the watercolor touch of Tales of Graces. One of the focuses is on the contrast between light and shadow.

Apparently, when the staff saw the backgrounds from the image art converted into real time on the PS3, they were stunned.

The summary at Game Jouhou also mentions something about the game breaking new ground. The full interview will hopefully be clearer about this.


The New Tactics Ogre Class (added 12:12)

And the new class Square Enix was teasing for Tactics Ogre is... Rogue.

That's all for now!

New Half Minute Hero? Woot. Shining Hearts sounds like it could be interesting but the Shining series is nothing like it's former self so I'll be a bit wary of until more details surface.

Is there any relation between this shining game and the "Shining Soul" game for GBA.

I kinda liked that game, in spite of its absolutely boring and repetitive gameplay.

Hmm...interesting. I hope they don't do some realistic style type thing but something of a mix of realistic and anime would be cool.

Any word on The Last Story stuff in this issue?

OMG I love Half Minute Hero! Here's hoping that they focus on Hero 30 more so than the others. That one was my favourite mode :D

the only way they could have made shining force w/tony any more dull that it was on ps2 with shining tears was to make it a traditional rpg

whoops
