I'm hoping for Atlus, I figure they'd give it the treatment it deserves.

Awesome, can't wait to hear what they have in store for it. I wonder if it'll implement the increased level cap included in the DLC or if it'll stick to just 20 lvls.

Been on a vampire kick and watched "Interview with the Vampire" and "30 Days of Night." I really enjoyed "Interview," and 30 Days was okay. Really glad they didn't change much for it, but then again, the orginal graphic novel was fairly simple to begin with.

In Fable 2's defense, it's a very charming game. It's quite humorous, never takes itself too seriously, and easy to lose yourself in. I had a lot of fun with it and definitely don't regret buying it.  Not to say that Mass Effect doesn't have all these same qualities, but just because Mass Effect is a better game in comparison, doesn't make Fable 2 a bad game. Not that I'm accusing anyone of saying this of course. :P

Mass Effect. It's story is amazing. Fable II has a mediocre story, it's more about the experience as a whole. Mass Effect also has a much better combat system. Unless you just hate third person shooters, then Fable II will be better in that category for you, buts its just a hack n slash game basically. Plus Mass Effect is likely to be 40 bucks cheaper. For 20 bucks Mass Effect is a steal.

Even though I love Fable 2 to death, I have to agree. Both games succeed at immersion, but I think ME has an overall better world and mythology to go along with it.  Plus Mass Effect is longer and is almost consistently challenging throughout.

Even if they do up the difficultly for retail, don't expect much. FF games are mainstream games marketed to all gamers many of which will not put up with games they find too difficult to play. That being said, it would be nice if they got a clue and just had difficulty settings like almost every other game does now a days. That way gamers can just chose the difficulty that best suits their play style.

I'm sure FFXIII is going to have a few optional bosses that will be way harder than the "regular", storyline bosses. This is how most games cater to the more hardcore players nowadays.

Seeing as this game seems to be a spiritual successor to VII, I hope Motomu and co implement similar optional bosses like in VII, that would be totally bad ass.

Along with this, I'm hoping for optional, "secret" characters. I think the last FF to do this was IX with Quina. Not that it'll be a game breaker or anything, just something that'd be kinda nice.

Finished the last route of Ever 17 over the weekend. Crazy good game! Was still in the mood for a visual novel so I started Fatal Hearts, and I'm really liking the addition of puzzles. Most of them are clever and not just some slider puzzle.

Also started Lunar 2 and just beat the 1st boss. Dunno what to make of it yet, but I can't wait to see where it goes.

I loved Steambot Chronicles (hence the avatar), but I dunno about a pure fighting game, although I'm hoping that it'll sell well, cause then that would give Atlus incentive to release the sequel over here sometime, assuming it is ever released in Japan. :P

Neverwinter Nights. I found an amazing RP-based PW and spent many evenings on it. Wonderful place with many other wonderful players. I figure this counts as an MMO, so my other two most played games are  P3 (~100 hours my first play through) and SO2 (Beaten it twice, working on my 3rd and 4th times).
805  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIII release date revealed!!! on: April 08, 2009, 02:10:25 PM
The scoring is nice, as long as the battles play out fast. Similar to SO4, I can give a crap about the bonus battle gauge because the battles move quickly, but if they take a minute or more to complete, then my motivation for trying to do better will die fast.

Rented and beat FEAR 2 last week and am close to beating Lunar 1. Good god, not to sound stuck in the 90's, but if only more modern games had characters like the ones in Lunar, I actually feel like I'm gonna miss them after I've beaten the game.

It'd be pretty cool if it were another Radiata Stories, provided they made it a bit more difficult and improved the story a bit (haha). I thought the original was charming in its own way, and I really liked how armor showed up on the main character when equipped, I wish more games did this.

An original game could be cool too, provided it has a decent premise.

I don't have LIVE gold either, but in case I ever get it:

"Samantha Brown! You have to get out of here! Your vagina is haunted!"

Taken from Tarot: Witch of the Black Rose #53, reviewed here. Personally, I just find it pretty hilarious, and wish there were more social situations where it would be appropriate to use.

Anyone has played Higurashi no Naku Koro ni and Umineko no Naku Koro ni, I have heard that they both have great plot and are very interesting and engaging murder mystery visual novels.
I believe they are not eroge, if they are I apologize...

As far as I know the games haven't been translated yet, although there's fan translations in progress.  Fan translations of games are typically slow and unreliable though, so they could be finished in anywhere from 6 months to never.

This is definitely true, but I know of one group that has translated the first game in the Higurashi series: Onikakushi-hen. If I'm correct, 07th Expansion, the makers of Higurashi and Umineko, offer Onikakushi-hen for free download as well. But you're right, outside of a few notable exceptions, most fan translations don't move anywhere.
