Much much Suikodeny goodness.

I'm flashing back to Suikoden 2 now. I've been waiting a long, long time to have a Suikoden game this... this.... Suikodeny again. Haven't even bothered to pick up Kingdom Hearts or any of the other games that have come in for me, though I'll have to do that tomorrow before they stop holding them for me.

Oh, and if anyone tried the link on my last post and failed, I fixed it, so it should work now.

That was pretty much what I said when I started playing it... this feels more like a Suikoden game. I love all the Suikodeny touches, like the chime that plays when you recruit someone, the font on the memory card screen, the screen that shows up after a battle... the one thing I'm really hoping for now is a good arrangement of the Suikoden theme.

Heh, I guess it's hard to explain to an "outsider" what a specific "Suikoden Feel" is (which to me, IV seemed to lack in great part, which was just the start of its problems). But if you're a fan of the series... you just know.

I'm loving lots about this game, but the one thing *I'm* really hoping for now is (of course) Yuber. Though I'm strongly suspecting I'll be disappointed. Grr.

Yeah, Yuber would be cool. One thing I miss about 1 & 2 was just how many returning characters there were, especially major ones. I want to see more of Viktor and Flik! Although I do kind of dread seeing them with voice actors. By the way, do we know when this one is set in relation to the others?

This one takes place before the others. Possibly some overlap with #1, but as my other comment kinda shows, definitely before #2.

I'm seeing "6 years before Suikoden 1" being thrown around in GameFAQs, but dunno where they got it from.

It's coming up out of sites such as Suikosource.com and the SARS Suikoden site. I don't recommend looking too closely at them as you will eventually hit spoilers, but the math does add up. It's possible a lot of this has come out of official Konami statements, as the above sites like to pore over that sort of thing.

I couldn't quite elucidate that, yes. The Suikoden feel. Definitely has that.

Did you notice Georg, though?
Mar. 30th, 2006 05:06 pm (UTC)
I thought I had seen Georg before, but I couldn't remember what his story was. Which game was he in?
Mar. 30th, 2006 05:43 pm (UTC)
He was one of the Six Great Generals in SuikII, I do believe. Sans eyepatch.

I thought he was one of the latter people you could recruit to your forces, not a general though. I could be wrong though - obviously I need to go back and replay the whole series soon. ^^

(Now if they'd bring the "gaidens" over... *sigh*)
Mar. 30th, 2006 08:03 pm (UTC)
Nope, I just doublechecked it. He was definitely one of the Six Greats of Barbarossa during the Succession War. He becomes the Teni) Star in your party.

And yar, I know, I'd like to see the gaidens very much.
Mar. 30th, 2006 08:07 pm (UTC)
Yup, definitely going to need a re-play...

Heh, just be ready for a looong lead-in before you get to the Good Stuff.
