    Armed robots with a cheerful demeanor are the focus in this episode. Even by the offbeat standards of other Enix RPGs on the Super Nintendo, this one stands out.
    Obviously this doesn't cover everything we used that you'll be hearing, but the catchy music is the Future Space Bass here.
    It's not what he's eating, but what's eating him that makes it ... sort of interesting.

    If I'm not mistaken, it's the famous Manatee from Luminous Arc

    Crisis Core was fantastic. The PSP also has Birth by Sleep, Hexyz Force and Agito XIII to come (and 3rd birthday, though I don't know if that'll be an RPG?).

    -FFVII! Hey my question for the panel is; is the FFVII localisation really as bad as everyone always tries to make out? I know it had plenty of rough bits like "this guy are sick", but it was generally coherent, and plenty of character personality made the translation (which is more than I can say for plenty of other JRPGs). Not a shining example of JRPG translation to be sure, but IMO it far exceeded other SCE translations of the time (FFT, Xenogears, Legend of Dragoon, WA2).

    I loved Robotrek back in the day. I still remember some of the combos for making weapons.

    Regarding the topic around 34:40, I recall hitting the enemies from behind improving chance to hit and/or damage.

    What's with all the fascination with Pollon-Pollon in the beginning of this thread?

    Anyway, I've never played Robotrek and only heard about it from a classic gaming site. It seems pretty interesting, though. I thought this opening was killer, though I doubt I'd be able to name all of the references. [img]non-cgi/emoticons/tounge2.gif[/img]

    Feel free to try anyway? I haven't gotten any responses yet, which means I either know my sci-fi all too well, or no one else is confident enough to try. Neist wasn't involved with making the opening but he nailed all of them, so at least one other person is capable of getting everything!

    Yeah, but at least a few of them would be difficult. [img]non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    At least half of them should be super easy.

    Ok to repeat myself: Robo Trek was great.

    There, since I contributed to the topic, I can add my own semi-unrelated thoughts. Does moving to PS1 and (wow, really??) PS2 mean we're jumping ahead already, and passing the real classics? Seems a bit premature when there are so many NES, Game Boy, and SNES titles still to do. Come oooooon Lufia 2!!!!

    Hehehwe.... Nothing to worry about there Teluin.

    We're not really picking games to talk about in Chronicalogical order. Right now are choosing games based on popularity (trying to hit some of the really popular series first) and our own knowledge of them. Occasionally we hit on a lesser known title such as Robotrek, but for now, you're going to see a lot of final fantasies, castlevanias, etc., etc. At the same time, with some of our other segments, such as Mike's imports and "Blast from the Recent Past" we touch on lesser known titles as well as some of the more 'recent' games which may have escaped your notice the first time around. We've discussed devoting a segment to the really lesser known RPGs, but at the moment we haven't gone much further than just discussing. If RPGBacktrack continues for a long period of time (say a year or two), we will naturally hit the lesser known titles more and more [img]non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    I was just about to put my copy of this game on eBay. I am raising funds for my home business and selling off my monstrous collection of games a bit at a time.

    Good game. I've played through it a number of times.

    Ah, the old 'selling off the game collection to raise funds for XYZ' routine. I know it too well [img]non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] Happy selling on that! I hope you get some good money!!

    I started playing this when I heard you guys were going to be talking about on the last cast. Right now I am really enjoying it. I had some trouble on the first boss, but got over it. I have been doing some grinding. I am in a haunted mansion at the moment. Read on the wiki that the game was called Slapstick in japan and that really does sum up the feel of the game. The planet's name is QuintENIX and the town's is Rococo?! His father's name is Akihabara! I am surprised they left his name Akihabara in the English localization and did not give him a more western name.
