Thread Suikoden |OT| Please tell me the answer: is fate unchangeable?
You should play Suikoden Rhapsodia/Suikoden Tactics next if you want the full Suikoden IV experience/story :) Suikoden IV is essentially "part 1" of a two part game which includes Suikoden Rhapsodia/Suikoden Tactics haha

Thread Suikoden |OT| Please tell me the answer: is fate unchangeable?
Moving this post over to the proper Suikoden OT thread for proper placement :) All the mainline Suikoden games are great! With all the flack Suikoden IV gets, it's not a bad game, and story wise, it becomes much better when paired with Suikoden Rhapsodia as a full experience, since it's essentially "half" a game haha. The Suikoden I, II, and III trilogy is also bolstered in its amazingness when played together back to back. And Suikoden V was definitely a return to form and is neck and neck as my favorite Suikoden when compared to II. There are also the Suikogaiden games, which delve into Nash and Sierra's story and are pretty great if you don't mind the visual novel format. And Suikoden Card Stories is cute haha However, the unifying factor is all the art is amazing! The Genso Suikoden Kiwami Encyclopedia, which was around 1100+ pages, was sold on the Konami Japan store years ago and is a bible of all things Suikoden :) It contained special key art illustrations by both Junko Kawano (Suikoden I, IV, and Rhapsodia artist) and Fumi Ishikawa (Suikoden 2 and 3 artist) Here are some samples of the illustrations that I scanned from my copy ;) And one last spoilery image! (years later post game spoilers) A very heart warming illustration :)

Junko Kawano was the artist for Suikoden 1, 4, and Rhapsodia. She also did the key art/cover art for Suikoden Centennial Tapestry on PSP (only released in Japan) Fumi Ishikawa was the artist for Suikoden 2 and 3. Kaori Fujita is the artist that sadly passed away that did some of the art for Suikoden V along with the art director "King" (Hideki Tanaka). Also, super stoked for Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes and will be throwing all the money at the Kickstarter :D

Thread Anyone else worried about SMT V and the future of mainline SMT/Atlus games in general?
Kaneko's style is just so unique and distinctive and mood invoking and the essence of MegTen. Doi's art I really enjoyed in the Trauma Center/Trauma Team games, but unfortunately his work as the main artist for the MegaTen titles just comes off as Kaneko-lite anime. Not saying Doi is a bad artist by any means, I actually like his work :) But for MegaTen, Kaneko's aesthetic has always been a part of its soul.

Thread Today is Mega Man X's 25th anniversary
My favorites include: Probably my favorite X game, with X4 or X8 as a third. Also love all the story beats/lore as well ;) This was one of my dream games when I was younger of having a Megaman X game combined into an RPG format, so I was super stoked when it was announced and when I got to play it :) (gotta love X's beam scarf!) Would love to see another game like it in the future. (c'mon sequel! haha) The first time an X game came to PlayStation with anime cutscenes and playable X & Zero :) The English voice acting wasn't the greatest, but still charming in its own way. Fun game to boot! Megaman's first foray into the 32 bit era. With anime cut scenes, the introduction of Duo and Dr. Wily discovering and using the "Evil Energy", and the new robot masters and gameplay, it was a joy to play and left a lasting impression :) Can't wait to see what a new X game could possibly entail! With all the "X-posure" ramping up thanks to the 25th anniversary, hoping we'll see a brand new game in the series sooner than later :D

Hmm, as far as I know, while his demon designs were contributed to all future MegaTen titles, he hasn't drawn any new demon art either in quite a while.
