Sega now owns Atlus, and Sega told Atlus they are free to help themselves to the SEGA buffet.

So yes we will get one made by Atlus eventually

All I want is another strategy RPG just like Shining Force 1 and 2... is that too much to ask for?!

If you've only played the first two Shining Force games, give Shining Force III a try. It's in three parts (released as three separate games in Japan), it follows the same gameplay formula as 1&2 and it's an epic game.

Only the first part was released in the west, but there is now an excellent fan translation of the final two scenarios.

Saturn emulation is pretty good these days. I've had lots of success with Beetle Saturn in Retroarch.

Camelot really needs to come back and start making RPGs again, would love love love another Golden Sun, or at least a remake or something. Apparently they still exist, but only do Mario sports games now

Died at "my dick nods"

For me it was when my dick investigated the vase. It was very dark....

Same, hilariously fitting

The more fitting is when my dick journey was hard...

Shining Force 2 is my favorite game of all time. This is amazing, why have I never thought of this; especially when I was playing this as an adolescent.

ID: guh8mhp

1 and 2 are still my favorite games. Every now and then I boot up a rom and play through them both.

ID: guh96e6

they're available on Google Play store, published by Sega. they even have controller compatibility, I use my Xbox controllers with my Samsung tablet to play through SF2 about once a year.

Chaotic good naming

This made me giggle. A diamond in the poo post

I tried to be mature and not laugh but absolutely lost it at "My dick nods"... Who was I kidding.

ID: guhuvvt

I broke at "She can't stop my dick's advance."

ID: guhzbjn

"My dick needs more experience" was where I lost it.

ID: guhwvb0

I didn’t even last that long

ID: guhyu4x

Sounds a lot like my dick.

Hell ya man. Still have fond memories of naming the "Gary" in the old pokemon games.

ID: guhjh04

Me: 'Assface'. Your grandson's names is 'Assface'.

Prof Oak: Yeah, that sounds right.

My cousin sold his SNES copy of Chrono Trigger to a store to upgrade to a new console (which, at the time, was PS1). I loved the game, and I was sad he did it, so we named all the characters vulgar names.

When I was 18, I decided, since I had my own money, I’d go to the local Game Stop and buy Chrono Trigger. I was delighted to find the hero “CUNT” waiting for his adventure.

Reminds me of a friend who always played multiplayer with the name "his penis".

"Player was killed by his penis" almost never got old, until we were doing a videogame demonstration at a computer fair in front of a whole crowd of families..

Also, SF2 rules.

Well played. To make any game like this supremely chill, name your character "my dude".

ID: guhr6xt

i like using "oh shit he" as my starter's name in Pokemon games.

"oh shit he learned smokescreen!"

"oh shit he is evolving!"

ID: guhzxfx

For the trainer, I like to use "Fuck, I"

"Fuck, I found a potion!"

"Fuck, I defeated Gym Leader Brock!"

"Fuck, I ran out of usable Pokemon!"

ID: guhuhlp

oh shit he used HARDEN

ID: guhxyga

I had a lot of fun naming myself "dumbass". Everyone was so needlessly mean to me.
