Title: Live a Live 2.0?
Post by: CouchTomato on September 22, 2007, 10:15:15 PM
So a week ago, I just found out about Live-a-live, and was playing for a few hours, and then I decided to check out the website, where I found out there was a 2.0 patch coming out "very soon," but that was like almost 4 months ago. So far, I've been holding off on the patch (I don't like playing through stuff twice, at least for a while), but I'm really eager to continue playing and finishing the game.

I'm not asking for a release date or anything, but should I just finish it or is it gonna be coming out soon enough?

From what I understand, this updated version is pretty much gonna own the original one in every way, shape, and form. I'd suggest holding out for it if you don't like to replay.

has any one seen Gid have more than one release in under 2 months?

There have been times in the past when I've got 'em organized well enough that there were major translations for big games coming every other week.

I remember those times. They were good.

I miss them. ;_;

I'm torn, myself. Sure, I'm looking forward to new stuff. But being in college, there's only so much free time and life I can afford to have sucked out. :p

Dear god, I fear the day SRW alpha's released. Shin Getter, Macross, and Giant Robo in the same game...is it even legal to make something that awesome? Doubt I'll ever be able to turn my eyes...on topic, how HAS live-a-live going? Or re-going? I only played the cowboy story (the JERK kid, good times), but it seemed like a fun game...

Heh, that's exactly how I feel, with regards to the college thing. I wanna have a game that I can play when I wanna be distracted from all the damn homework, studying, and lab reports I have to do. =P

Of course, there's only a couple months before Smash Bros, so after that, everything goes down the drain.

Only until the feds find out. Then they'll make SRW a restricted substance.

...

Am I the only person that wants to take a YF-21 to town on the Wing Zero's sorry posterior hinge component repeatedly and excessively?
I think I may spin a save off just so I can reload every time I feel an urge to stuff a missile down Heero's angsty yaoi-fanfic throat.

You should play the bakumatsu chapter (it has SO many secrets)  and the near future chapter (battle music rocks).  The game also possesses the most intriguing Ending.  And the good ending is hard as hell to get.   I think this game and Shin Megami Tensei are and will always be AGTPs strongest releases.

I don't know. I loved SMT and liked what I saw of Live-a-Live. But man, SRW3 put me into a trance or something...I woke up a few days later wondering what the hell happened and how the game was over. I re-started it and was sucked back in...took the entire JSA, JLA, Doctor Who, Teddy Roosevelt, and the A-team to pull me outta that loop.

...man, that was a hell of a day.

You forgot to Mention Marty and his DeLorean. He was really the hero, because Mr. T's van wasn't fast enough to catch SRW by itself.

Honestly? I'd say wait. 2.0 is already so much better than 1.0 is and it keeps getting better.

Have we heard anything about it since it was announced?

Nope.  But I heard that there's going to be a complete prosey-narrative of the prehistoric era instead of just the pictograms.  Hey, Gon's up and walking BTW.  I've never seen his pupils before.  It kind of warps my mind.


^^ that was a joke.  I am well aware that isn't going to happen.

You're just not looking in the right places. I've been posting screenshots from time to time over in the Screenshots thread at RHDN since Gid announced the project. :P

Hmm, I didn't see any besides Gideon's topic. I did notice though that he mentioned pinyin-izing Shinsan-ken (心山拳) as "Xing Jiang Quan," but looking at the kanji (at least from Wikipedia), it would actually be "Xinshanquan." Out of curiosity, what is Samo's name in the Japanese version, 'cause "Samo" doesn't sound Chinese at all =P

Samo is Samo, it's Katakana.

And I still can't believe it's Xingjiangquan. Gideon insists I gave him that pinyinized translation so I must have but that's so definitely wrong. My Chinese teacher would whup me upside the head if she saw me do that. ^^;

Ahem. (http://www.romhacking.net/forum/index.php/topic,590.msg70340.html#msg70340)

There's other stuff a few pages back, if you feel like digging.

Ah hah, figured out where "Samo" came from, inadvertently while watching a random YouTube video. It's actually an English name, not Chinese, but you can clearly see that his name would be "Sammo" after checking this link:

i'm very excited about replaying this Square classic. 2.0+ is looking great, and yet another masterpiece by the scene god Gideon Zhi!

Dude, this post hasn't been posted in since October 19, and as much as I appreciate the praise, your post has virtually no content in it whatsoever. *PLEASE* refrain from replying to every single post on the entire board - it's *extremely* annoying, and your post count doesn't mean jack here.
