Re: Sword of Mana remake for Vita on Sony's TGS site!

It's frustrating that it is only available on iOS in the US. I bought two different gamepads that fit around the iPhone so that I could use actual buttons and it STILL controls a bit clunky. Why couldn't this have come to 3DS or Wii U? :/

Creator of Mana's new IP

Grezzo, as many of us know, is founded by Koichi Ishii, the creator of the Mana series.

He has a new game coming out called "Ever Oasis" that has very Mana-like gameplay and a similar cuteness factor:

Re: I started doing a SD3 Let's Play with two friends

The series is a MST of sorts; two friends named Matt and Pat play video games, argue, and mock the game they are playing and each other. The series does not focus on the two friends; they weren't even named until the second season. According to the show's Facebook page, it started when The Switcher...

FFA prototype cartridge

There's a video on YouTube purporting to be footage from a FFA prototype cartridge, but the game looks identical to me... do you guys notice any interesting differences?

Re: Rise of Mana coming to PSVita!

Yes, I've heard that it's easy to port from iOS to Vita for developers... but what's the point when no one owns it? When the 3DS install base is over TEN TIMES the Vita's... it just doesn't make sense to not invest the little bit of money to rework the game to make it 3DS-playable. And, yeah, I know...

Re: Rise of Mana coming to PSVita!

I'm very confused by this. The PS Vita is DEAD. Why on earth bring Rise of Mana to a dead platform when it could thrive on the 3DS? So, so strange. That being said, I would absolutely buy a Vita for this (well, I also need to buy one eventually for an Ys game) if it were to be localized... They'd be...

Very interesting! I never thought about it like that. I wonder if it was intentional?

Re: Playing Seiken Densetsu Mobile on an European Mobile?

Whoops, I never came back here to update. Yeah, I realized later that the size was just fine, but that they were missing quite a large chunk of stuff (Mana Tree and whatnot). Ah well.

Re: Game Grumps Animated: Secret of Mana

Right. I love JonTron's videos on his YouTube channel, but as a Game Grump... something about him rubbed me the wrong way. But I admit that might have to do with my coming upon the Game Grumps after Danny had taken over.

Re: Game Grumps Animated: Secret of Mana

I only started watching when Danny replaced Jon, and so I might be suffering from bias as a result, but I prefer him to Jon. Going back and watching the Jon version... all he wants to do is complain about the game and not want to play it and complain about playing it and argue with Arin. Danny, on t...

Re: The Truth About Mana - Cool article about SoM developmen

I'm also intrigued by the notion that the original version was going to be "darker" and that a lot of the scrapped content found its way into Chrono Trigger. Fascinating.

Re: Game Grumps Animated: Secret of Mana

I think they only reason they stopped (originally) was because The Wind Waker HD had just come out and they replaced SoM with TWW HD in that "mid-day" time slot. But then they dropped TWW HD as well. :/

Game Grumps Animated: Secret of Mana

For those not familiar with Game Grumps, it's two dudes doing "let's plays" of various games. They WERE doing Secret of Mana for a while, but dropped it for some unexplained reason. Anyway, the reason people watch their YouTube channel has less to do with the game they're playing and more to do with...
