Mixed Feelings about SE Follow

I just found out that SE is doing a remake of Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together, and i have mixed feelings about it, in one hand, i really hope they pull it off, and deliver a port on par with War Of The Lions, on the other hand, i have seen how SE treats any of it's series besides FF or DQ, they get sub-par resources and basically are lock down in obscurity for 10 years.

I really loved that game, and played all the branches more than one time, in my opinion that game is what FFT could have been, if they implemented a similar branching storyline.(Not that FFT is not epic as it is) My concern is that lately SE has flopped almost every release of it's older series(Mana,Star ocean, Saga, Front mission etc etc) and has concentrated in shelling out remake's of it's old catalog to in a sense remain relevant(Not that SE is irrelevant but with all the other company's delivering good game's more often than not SE is not the beacon of light in the RPG genre anymore) and taking FFTWOTL as an example, the game sold good, and was a solid port, in way's better than the original, and yet they turned the FFT franchise into some kiddy waterdown version <.< and i dont want that to happen with OG series.

The PSP remake, Tactics Ogre: The Wheel of Fortune (as it's called in Japan, it will be called Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together for the English versions) received 36/40 from Famitsu, and this is the quote from 1up.com (http://www.1up.com/news/japan-review-check-tactics-ogre):

Quote:

For JRPG fans, this PSP remake of the 16-bit classic is definitely the game of the week. "All the new gameplay features added are incredibly fun and incredibly useful," one editor wrote. "You aren't just rewinding your turns in battle; you get to pore over the branching points in the story and every move you've ever made in the game, which is amazing. With a game as tough as this one, it's a vital tool for your strategy -- I think it makes things a lot more accessible to beginners."

"I like the changes made to the leveling system," another added. "It makes creating a truly unified force a lot easier. The difficulty and story are just as hardcore as always, too."


So it looks like SE are doing well with it, especially since they did acquire the Atlus team responsible for the original. I can also say, listening to the soundtrack, the music is quite nice :-)

Yes after doing a bit more of searching, i can finally say they cant mess this up, the game is 150% improved from the original, my only remaining concern is if they are going to censor the **** out of the game, for the PSX version was very profain if i remember correctly.

In any case, doing a bit more of googling, it seems we might actually be able to play as Lancelot, and recruit him this time around :)

I just hope they dont just ship this out, and we dont get another OBT for another 50 years XD!

Choose hard mode instead of normal mode; you're welcome.
