Hello, new to to the community!

I've been a huge fan of the Saga series since Frontier came out on the PSX.
I fell in love with the characters,story,music,gameplay,and locations! It reminded
me alot of another favorite game of mine,Valkyrie Profile, in that it was so different
and unique from other games.

My favorite character of the series is by far Mesarthim. She's gorgeous,is great in battle,
and she's a Mystic mermaid! Nereid is my second and others include White Rose, and Asellus.

Well I look forward to the Saga Fandom!

Nifty SaGa Frontier Links [Jan. 13th, 2010|08:58 pm]
A Fan Community for the SaGa RPG Series

Hi all; I've been a lurker here for a while but never posted before.
As I'm sure most of you can totally relate, I spend lots of time hunting the internet for hidden gems of SaGa info [which, a while back, is how I even discovered this journal community].

Well, the other night I fell upon this really awesome "Let's Play" walkthrough [somehow affiliated with SpomethingAwful]. Anyways, it's a complete depiction of the game [side quests, extras, and all] with lots of high quality screen captures. It even contains images from the Debug Room of all the unused/base files [I don't have Gameshark, so it was really exciting to legit see these].

But aside from all the nifty info [that most of us already knew about], the best thing about this is the HILARIOUS comments that the user documenting the walkthrough posts throughout. It's all dry, witty, humour that lovingly mocks the game, and constantly made me physically laugh out loud.
The whole thing's a pretty short read [because it's all screen-caps and one-liners] and so worth it.
It's here:

Another link is this well-rounded collection of SaGa Frontier fanart at Photobucket. It's as if the user has been stalking the internet for the best/most-interesting[/any?] SaGa Frontier fanart and storing them in a safe, accumulated mass.

Particularly take note to the middle of the 5th page in the 7th album! It has these three AMAZING works for "Episode: Red," "Episode: Fuse," and "Episode: T260G" [respectively] that are illustrated to look like promotional art for each story as an anime! Notice how much the tone of the Episode: Fuse piece is like something right out of Cowboy Bebop! :X

Also, at the bottom of the 6th page in the 7th album is another similar piece with Red, Dr. Okonogi, Dr. Klein, and a guy who looks like Dr. Leonard [but that wouldn't make sense?]
Who do you think the blonde guy is?!

Most of the albums are filled with Asellus's quest, but there are quite a few unexpected gems from the other stories!
Check it out here:

Finally, there's this review of the SaGa 20th Anniversary OST Collection over at RPGFan. It has a full track listing and high quality cover images for each of the disks [which is good for having quality iTunes album art, if you have the soundtrack like me!]
It's here:

Sorry if these are old news, but I don't recall seeing them posted here before!

PS: How AMAZING would it be if they re-made SaGa Frontier for PS2 or PS3, only this time they'd make the game complete [including Fuse's quest, Kurenai in Asellus, etc.]!? It would have vastly updated graphics that resemble Tomomi's original character art, and the entire soundtrack would be re-recorded to sound more orchestral and way less keyboard-ish! This is a fantasy I have everyday...

PPS: At least someone on youtube has made a high quality version of "The Opening of a Journey" for piano. It's really pretty!

For those interested Crimson Nocturnal is working on an English patch for SaGa 2. No English screen shots have been posted yet but the group plans to update soon :)

Also, user Chrissy on gamefaqs has been posting translated bits of Fuse's Diary from Essence. The translator asks that no one re-posts anything anywhere until they're done, after which they'll post the story in its entirety :)

The start of Fuse's story can be found here, and its second part is currently being posted here.

Here's some Romancing SaGa(PS2) icons I made in my spare time. Most of them are just cropped fanart, so feel free to edit them without crediting if you like!

15 Icons behind cut + mandatory(?) introduction postCollapse )

Day 2 is up... Riki is already out, who is next? There was a tie between Red and Emelia in votes so who will VIrgil choose?

A question for all the SaGa Frontier fans with books! [Aug. 2nd, 2009|02:23 am]

[Current Mood |exhaustedexhausted]

hello, community.

I've always wanted an SF "Material Collection", but it doesn't seem like such a thing exists. Only guidebooks...which have burned me before when it comes to artwork. So...I could use some help!

Basically, I'm looking for the SF book with the best reference pictures (large and full-color) of as many of the SF characters as possible. For nefarious fanarting purposes.

I thought Essence might be the one, but the only non-groundwork pictures I've seen in scans are...either group pictures or basically all the ones you can find in every SF gallery. No illustrations of (for instance) Zozma or Gina. Seems like the book is almost entirely dedicated to the behind-the-scenes text, which I can't read. Am I wrong? :(

The Hypertext appears to have a buttload of pictures of the minor characters, but...they're kinda small. If I could do better, it'd be nice!

thanks for reading.

SaGa series 20th anniversary soundtrack & Anniversary book [Jul. 30th, 2009|03:12 am]
A Fan Community for the SaGa RPG Series

It's already been posted here that for SaGa's 20th anniversary they made a SaGa series 20th anniversary soundtrack for around $200. But not only is it 20 dics of music, but as a bonus, Square Enix is including a special DVD featuring interviews with SaGa series staffers, including Nobuo Uematsu, Kenji Itou, Chihiro Fujioka, Ryuji Sasai, Masahi Hamauzu, Tomomi Kobayashi, and Akitoshi Kawazu. The soundtrack also includes a 20th anniversary illustration from Tomomi Kobayashi. You can sample all the music from all the cds at the official site. There is also a neat promotional video that shows a bit of a close up of Tomomi Kobayashi's anniversary illustration!

I also have some images!

Two images under cutCollapse )

I would love to buy this, if mostly for the large illustration, but $200 is a lot .. :\

Also, on a side note looks like they made a Anniversary book, SaGa Series 20th Anniversary SaGa Chronicle (an anniversary book that's due for release on September 17)! I wonder what's inside...
