Look forward to a positive review later this month, followed by LiQuid! calling me gay, followed by me saying he has poor taste, followed by Buddhaknowswhat!

OH MY GOD I MUST PREORDER THIS RIGHT NOW!

Curious: Does this game have any sort of "carry over" feature? 4 allowed one to take 3's game file and get some mildly useful bonuses; wouldn't mind seeing something similiar in 5. :3

Since when do I need an excuse to call anyone gay?

At any rate, you fags are all free to love your chittyshittybangbang, generic, anime, western RPG's all you like.

Actually, 4 allowed data transfer from Alter Code F.

I'll definitely be getting 5.

And you can wankwank to some terrible DS games that you like just because they are on DS.

It's a fair trade.

"Whiney bitches complained about Wild ARMs 4 not being "Western" enough. Well, bitches, Wild ARMs 5 delivers a much more Western-looking Filgaia,"

excellent Smile

I'll remind you of that when Barbie's Fairy Princess adventure comes out. Better pick up that Pink DS Lite there, champion.

If that really exists (I don't even want it in my search history - or perhaps I'm lazy?), we should all pitch in and buy LiQuid! a copy, and then force him to review it, RPG or no.

Yeah, it'll probably kick ass cause there'll be voice recognition so you can bitch at your fairy and then you can slap her ho ass in the face with your stylus. There's no stopping the DS!

A few notes of updated impression:
-The ability to move and act being given to each battle participant has, as predicted, had a pretty big effect on battles. Previously, there was a bit more strategy involved, since moving meant you could not attack and attacking meant you could not move (except in the case of Raquel, who learned the move-attack ability). In WA5, over these past 12 hours or so, I've noticed the overall feel of the battle is somewhat more chaotic, because it's a whole lot more difficult to keep the weaker or "backline" characters out of range from physical attacks, because at almost any given time, anyone can attack anyone. It's kind of fun sometimes, but I think I liked 4's battles just a little more.

-Much much less platforming stuff in this one. There is still some classic WA puzzly stuff, but the platforming parts from WA4 have not been imitated. Maybe that'll pick up. I kinda hope so, because while it may have been frustrating at times, the platforming parts of WA4 were decent overall.

-World map is a pleasure to explore, still. I just wish it weren't hampered by so many random encounters. Overall, still neat, and a big positive for the game.

-"Who is ________, Mr. character?"
"Head to That Town to find your answer."
"Can't you just tell us? You clearly know."
"I do know. But that would suck about 10 hours out of sidetracky RPG play if I just TOLD you."
*Drags ass to Town*
