Agarest: Generations of War is on Steam Greenlight and needs your vote in order to be released on the service. D’toid says the Comile Heart RPG is to be published by Ghostlight based on the North American Xbox 360 version, using Aksys’ translation. It will come with gamepad and mouse/keyboard support, and Steam achievements. Click through the links for more, and look at the video below.

    huh – where did this come from…This game’s great! I had the PS3 version, and it was among my go-to games for months.

    This makes me wish that we could have something like a sequel to the original Shining Force games, if only a spiritual successor. Something more focused around crazy fantasy (where anything could happen), and something perhaps a little less obtusely pervy. (I’d feel embarrassed playing this. At least in Shining Force the perv elements were easter eggs, not part of the main game.)

    Plus, it feels like it’s being toned down from what Japan used to be. Their take on fantasy used to be so utterly crazy. This feels oddly Westernised by comparison. Or perhaps it’s just that only the stuff that they think would be compatible with us is seeing the light of day over here. Boo.

    Again, not attacking the game, per se. Just that it’s boring compared to the likes of what I used to play on the Mega Drive/SNES back in the day. I miss things like Phantasy Star and Shining Force, both of which were utterly nuts for the sake of it.

    In fact, I REALLY miss the blend of fantasy and sci-fi that Phantasy Star represents, which is why I tend to buy every Phantasy Star game released on every platform. The only reason I skipped over the recent PC/PS3 MMO is because it just looks so incredibly bland and washed out compared to the originals. I don’t get this desire to just kill colour.

    How long before everything goes greyscale? It feels like we’re most of the way there.

    Edit: And yes, even this is really washed out and greyscale when you compare it to something like, say, Skies of Arcadia.

    Good to see more Japanese games coming to Steam it’s a pity they have to go through Greenlight first tho. Greenlight is such a mess, they really need a better system.
