Guys, Sakuraba is doing the soundtrack for the Suikoden spiritual successor series. I mean, the man's still got it
That's awesome, I love Suikoden! Konami failed by not continuing on with the series, especially when the mainline games were really getting intricate and good with V. (Let's not mention Tierkreis) This is really where kickstarter shines; funding some of the developers of a game to continue the legacy they wouldn't be able to do otherwise. This is something that wasn't possible back in the 90s or even 00s. Now if we could only get Golden Sun going again.

Oh, is Suikoden 5 good? Never played it because I heard bad things about 4 and just wrote off the franchise. Suikoden 1-3 are some of my favorite RPGs ever (but I like Golden Sun better, of course)

If we are talking about Sakuraba's work, and if you don't know yet Resonance of Fate, let me introduce to you some of his work in this game.

Haven't posted here in a while, but I just wanted to say, I'm still supporting Isaac in Smash (and a GS remake would be really cool).

Just gotta figure out how to beat Dullahan first though lol
Ah yes Dullahan.

My plan always basically was "set all djinn off so I can spam summons and pray that both they are enough to kill him and that he doesn't use djinn storm or whatever move resets your djinn"

and it works...eventually...after a number of resets... >_>

Sometimes I just come here and post to show love. Because Isaac is someone needed.

Dash attack: Dashing hand chop.
Fsmash: Thunder Mine, zaps the enemy an unleashes a small Thunder Mine in front of him, like this:
03b01bf4043a00c06b010394a38482493b09e1f19462645165151d03f7fb80f69fd361b0a5bcdc99c78b0dc75bd35f...gif

If Isaac miss the first attack he won't do the second part.
Usmash: Mad Growth, summons vines around him.

If we ever got an animated adaptation of Golden Sun how would you guys want it to be handled?
I saw that art and thought about how cool and unique it looks and then I realized that the artist for the Golden Sun games isn’t with us anymore and now I’m sad.

Actually, the one who passed on did artwork for the enemies. Not the official artwork like Isaac and others.

Actually looking at the games credits the main artists for the characters were Fumihide Aioki and Shin Yamanuchi. Mr Kajiyama the one who passed away is mostly credited with monster designs so he would've been responsible for how the enemies and djinn looked

Suikoden V competes for being the best one. Of course you'll get competition from nostalgia from I & II and those are obviously great games with story, characters, etc. Suikoden V brought back a bunch of stuff that was taken away as the franchise went on like the RTS battles (which are better than ever), duels, castle customization, 6 party members, fusion rune attacks. IV is the black sheep of the main games in a lot of ways and I can see why a lot of people that played the previous 3 were put off from it, but it seems the developers took the hint and returned back to basics and made a really solid game.

That sounds fantastic, I'll see if I can give it a try then.

I'm dying for some Nintendo news. Hopefully my August prediction comes true and we don't have to wait long, but I'm not sure and it may be September that we get something meaty to discuss.
Based on current trends, I'm expecting another smaller direct like a Partner Presentation (And better defined as well, hopefully) or an Indie World at some point this month, followed by a full general direct in September. Assuming we get another Partner Presentation, I'm thinking maybe Bayonetta 3, since apparently Walmart says that's coming January 6th.

Spare the Djinn that set up protective barriers. And keep a healer with their Djinn, give your healer Waters of Life in case you need to revive as them. Keep Isaac with his full Djinn too, and make him your main attacker, use Impact on him often so he'll unleash all his power with Ragnarok / Odyssey or regular attacks with Gaia Blade or Sol Blade. In Golden Sun 1, use Ivan and Garet as Summon / Djinn spammers, Mia as Wish Well bot, sometimes also going for Summons and Djinn attacks. And Isaac as all out attacker, with buffs from Ivan occasionally when it's needed. Safe Isaac's PP for Revive too if you can.

Have you guys tried out the new update yet? I think the Golden Sun battle music fits Final Destination so much better than any of the other stages it was available on before.

Though I guess this throws the idea of a third fighter pass out the window somewhat. (with how the update added a new stage "small battlefield" to the stage selection screen) Though I didn't think that was going to happen anyway.

There will be three available stage slots after this final fighter pass, and while it'll probably most likely be filled with nothing it would be cool if they released some sort of stage pack after the fighter pass.....or just bring Poke Floats, Orbital Gate Assault and Rainbow Road back. (maybe Yoshi's Woolly World but I'd prefer the first three)

Alternatively I'd kinda like if they made a Poke Floats 2 stage instead, and included newer gen Pokemon (I mean the Poke Floats stage is just begging to have a Drifblim float) and make them a bit more like big air balloons.

I’ve been expecting a General September Direct since E3 was canceled. But I had hoped we’d get one sooner. Basically, a “Prepare for the worst, hope for the best.” situation. Kept me at bay all this time. Plus I had Doom Eternal to play. Lol
With Pikmin 3 shadowdropped today, another Partner Showcase and/or Mini Direct is very likely this month. I wonder what’s in store for us? No More Heroes 1 & 2 ports?

I still don't think we're getting a general in September. Yes, there probably are some things that were meant to be announced at E3, but I doubt most of them were for this year.

If it was something big for this timeframe, it would have already been announced.
While I won't pretend to know when we might get a Direct, I cannot believe that Pikmin 3 Deluxe on October 30th will be our last Nintendo game of 2020. Are we to believe that a remaster of a Wii U game from a niche series is the only major release Nintendo will have in a holiday season that will see both Microsoft and Sony debut next-gen consoles? Seriously? Unless COVID has affected their release schedule way more than they're letting on, I have to believe we'll be seeing more news about their remaining 2020 plans over the next two months. Not necessarily a lot of plans, granted, but some.
