Single-Player RPGs / Sunrider: First Arrival
« on: July 21, 2014, 07:27:44 PM »
Have anyone else seen this game called Sunrider: First Arrival on Steam ?

Basically it's a Visual novel mixed with Strategy RPG. The scenario is something of a space opera where you are the captain of a spaceship on the run from some tyrants of the galaxy and along the way you recruit new people to your crew and makes choices along the way.

After having played two hours I must admit I'm pretty impressed. The characters I've met, even if stereotypes, are interesting. The music is excellent, I can't stress how much I enjoy it, it really helps setting the mood of the game.
Oh, and the best part, it's completely free, no microtransactions, no catches. From the little I've looked into, it's a successful kickstarter that made this possible.

So, I highly recommend this for both SRPG fans and Visual Novel fans alike. There's even a "Visual Novel" difficulty level for those that just want to enjoy the story, because I heard this game gets really hard on normal.

Single-Player RPGs / Half Minute Hero: The Second Coming
« on: April 02, 2014, 07:34:07 PM »
So, it appears Half Minute Hero: The Second Coming is coming to steam April 4th.

Well, I think I'm not alone as I loved the first game. Which was interesting for me because I was very reluctant at first but then for some reason I decided to give it a try and I loved it, so I'm really happy the second is coming out, even if out of the blue, with no announcements that I've heard of and in such short notice.

Anyone else looking forward to it? (This is no late Aprils Fool joke, Marvelous even joked about the price of 999,999)

Single-Player RPGs / Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc
« on: February 11, 2014, 08:09:04 PM »
So, for those that know nothing about this, it's a visual novel, which has already been adapter to an anime show and now we get a game for the PS Vita.
I'm not even sure if this Vita version is the same as the PSP version that was released in Japan.

Regardless, this game seems to be getting great reviews all across the board, even here on RPGFan.

So, is anyone interested in it ?
I know I am, after playing 999, Zero Escape, Corpse Party and Song of Saya I've been much more receptive to Visual Novels. Not that I ever had anything against them I just think playing them with a portable device to be way more comfortable.

So, anyone have any impressions on it?
I'm personally planning to get it as soon as I clear a few games on my backlog.

Single-Player RPGs / Summon Night Series
« on: March 31, 2013, 08:54:31 PM »
So I watched this new trailer for the Summon Night series, the 5th game which is coming to the Vita ans I though it does look pretty nice.
This is a series for me that seems to have always flow under the radar. I kind of heard about it, but nothing more than that, until I did some research just now I thought this series was exclusive to the DS.

Anyway, since I saw the trailer and got interested, anyone here has any sort of experience with this series?

Single-Player RPGs / Sully: A very Serious RPG
« on: March 27, 2013, 09:09:35 PM »


So I saw this article and video on Siliconera about this new RPG. I wasn't expecting much until I watched the trailer which caught me off guard and it seems pretty funny!

If anything, I reminds me of Half Minute Hero, not only because of the retro looks, but also the abilities the flash through regular encounters.
Also, besides computers, it's coming to the Vita which I think is nice, I always like to have some RPG to play on the go, especially being able to quickly turn it on and off and resume anytime.

Reviving this thread to announce the sequel!

Apparently the sequel to Corpse Party, Corpse Party: Book of Shadows is coming to US and Europe this winter

By what I read in the article the sequel is more like a visual novel. I think this may be for the best because something I didn't like much in the original were those chase sequences.
Funny this is announced just the week when I decided to go back to the game. At least I'll have time to finish the first one (If Zero Escape doesn't take all my time).

General Games / Slender
« on: August 24, 2012, 06:39:57 AM »
I'm not sure if there are many survivor horror fans here but since a lot of us are into immersion in games, one of the best things in RPGs, a survival horror might be a nice recommendation.

I don't want to say to much so I don't ruin the surprise, but in short, this FREE game called Slender is based on an urban legend of a creepy guy who scares people.
This game is short, about 30 min to beat, and about 50mb to download and can run in pretty much nay PC these days.

Now from my personal experience, I heard it was best to play this, at night, lights out and headphones. Being a big survivor horror fan that I am I thought "why not". Boy, little did I know I was for the scare of my life.
The game just tells you you have to collect 8 pages and that is it. You can't look at the slender man for too long or you die. Your flashlight has limited battery as so as your stamina, so you can't run all the time.

So simple yet so effective, and the best part of the game for me was the sound and music. They really put you in the mood making you feel so uneasy and more with each step.

There are a bunch of videos on youtube of people's reaction to it  and I have to say I sympathize with them.

General Games / Nintendo 3Ds XL
« on: June 22, 2012, 12:57:07 PM »
Not exactly a game but I wasn't sure where to put this thread.
Finally a revision many of usnwere waiting for.

From the picture I've seen it's obvious there's no 2nd analog stick but at least the system is bigger, so a little more conforable to hold and it has better battery life and bigger screens.

It comes in august. Anyone else thinking about picking it up?

General Games / Dear Esther
« on: February 22, 2012, 10:12:13 PM »
Anyone heard of this ?
In short, it was during sometime ago a mod for Half-Life 2 which got some good praise and became a full fledged game which was released on Feabruary 14th.

I watched a review for it on youtube and became truly interested so I thought I'd check it out and loved it! I've written a review for it in my blog.

Basically this game is all about immersion and being us RPG fans, where immersion and story do play a big part I thought this game make spark interest in more people here!
I don't want to say much about it as I don't want to spoil it for some. If anything, I highly recommend it!

Single-Player RPGs / Odin Sphere to hit PSN along with other PS2 titles
« on: October 03, 2011, 10:37:17 AM »
According to IGN there's a new program on PSN to bring some PS2 games back, but these will not have an HD treatment nor trophies.

Along with Odins Sphere, there will be: God Hand, GrimGrimoire, Maximo: Ghosts to Glory and Ring of Red.

Odisn Sphere if it least fix the lag issue could be awesome because even without HD it looks great. I have GrimGrimoire but for some reason I played only a little, liked it and forgot about it but I'm not excited about getting it again since I still have my PS2 hooked up.

Now if Sony were to release some overpriced RPGs, that would be areal treat.

Single-Player RPGs / The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword
« on: September 30, 2011, 02:09:23 PM »

I'm pretty surprised there isn't a thread for this game when it's so close for it to be released.
Well, it should be coming on Nov 20th.

It even has a lot of new videos in the front of the site

I just pre-ordered the game with the wiimote plus bundle. I was searching through a lot of sites where buying it would not be too expensive for me but in the end I decided to give a new store a try, so I'll be getting the UK version of the game.

On the game, while I'm looking a lot what I'm seeing so far, if there's one thing I'm not liking much is the characters faces. There's something about Zelda and Link in these videos that just look weird. At least all we see is Link's back from most of the game, so I don't think his face should be a problem. Hell, he could even have a mask (in style of Majora's Mask) with a Troll face on it.

Single-Player RPGs / The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings
« on: February 09, 2011, 07:27:45 AM »


Anyone waiting for this ?
Back when The Witcher 1 came out I got the game but ended up not playing it. It had some lag depending on the settings and if I'm not mistaken I was playing Oblivion and ended up not giving it a chance.
Of course I'm willing to give this one a chance. There's a playthrough on one of those beta demos and it looks really good.

The graphics looks amazing for one, design of places looks varied, combat is hard to tell but it seems much more than a simple hack and slash.

Anyway, this is the link to the demo play I've just seen and it does look impressive.
