The same can't be said about that for Rune Factory: Frontier. That's an under-the-radar game from XSEED, also, but the nearest Gamestop to me that has a copy of it is over 50 miles away. I checked the gamestop site for this game and it is available pre-owned at one of my 3 local gamestop stores. A new copy isn't available. I can check with my local game store also. I think I saw it there before, as well as another game I want called The Legend of Heroes III: Song of the Ocean.
This game was pretty enjoyable the only annoying thing were the constant loading times. I mean yeah I've been pretty patient with loading times before, but in this one it was 5-10 seconds of loading going from room to room.
I also thought the combat was too simplistic, there were times I found myself nodding off during fights (one time the battery even died when I just fell asleep playing). Overall though I thought it was an entertaining game.
I love Silver Star Harmony just as much as I loved Silver Star Story Complete back in the day.
I love Silver Star Harmony, too. I love the orignial as well. The PSP version was a nice and relaxing game that I could just play and enjoy, in my opinion
PSP version was fantastic, loved almost everything about it. XSEED improved on everything Working Designs did localization wise in my opinion, and it was a blast to play through the game once again. My only gripes with it was that the music in the town of Lyton never sounded bad when you arrived, and then stayed the same once you fixed the problem! And then when the ocarina scene didn't happen at the very end, I was extremely disappointed. That scene really didn't make much sense without it triggering. Load times honestly didn't bug me at all, I still really don't understand what the fuss was all about. They weren't perfect, but I thought they really never impeded the game's flow. All in all it was a fine remake. Now Game Arts, remake Lunar 2 and then make me a Lunar 3 based on the Four Heroes' adventures!!
I just wish there would've been a world map. D:
Yeah the loading was really the only thing that annoyed me as well. It's not even that the load times were that long, so much as so often and usually with little pay off. It also took a while to fall in love with the new lyrics. I loved Silver Star Story and Complete. I probably played Lunar SSSC more than any other game on the system (not to mention I was a die hard Working Designs fan boy). So it was kind of shocking to hear the opening and the boat song sound so different.
I really didn't like it that much at first, but after listening to the full versions of the songs on the CD I realized how much better they actually were. Thank you Xseed for throwing in soundtracks
The hand-drawn environments are a nice touch and the dialogue is pretty funny in certain areas
The only 2 BACONS I have with the game are the low difficulty level and how all the NPC's look the same and have the same standing animation....
