My thoughts exactly.

Nintendo, where is my 2d Metroid? :(

Another one I just thought of...Unskippable/Unpauseable Cutscenes. No game should be without the means to both pause and skip it's cutscenes.

So true.

To help with the list:

- No quick save in portable rpgs
- Excessive amounts of fetch quests.
- When the game asks you a Yes/No question, but the answer really doesn't matter and won't change anything story-wise. So WHY ask it in the first place?

More EOII - To my surprise the boss went down pretty fast, all that was needed was to null it's status inflicting spells. Completed a few quests and then moved on to the 5th stratum. Everything is in a burn-your-eyes fuggly yellow color. At least the music has a nice celtic tune to it... Mandragoras can insta-kill all the party members in an single attack. No good.

EOII - Well, I was wrong. The boss is on floor 20, which is the one I am exploring now. Nothing interesting to note... except those annoying butterflies that keep confusing my party and a flower monster that kills in one attack. It's almost on par with Megaten's level of cheapness. :P

I played DQ8 on an slim PS2 and cannot remember any issues with loading times.

Back on topic...

DQ8 may not have excelled in any particular way, but it did everything it was supposed to do right. From the graphics to the mechanics, everything was smooth and worked well. Even the tiniest details received attention, like the movements of the main character while opening doors. You can tell that the game is very polished. The story is light-hearted and at times does not take itself seriously, which adds to the whole "simplistic" feel the game has.

Just my two cents.

After a break from gaming I'm back to EOII. Got to floor 19 and explored a bit. This game never ceases to amaze me, now there are teleport pods all over the place. I wasn't expecting it, but there was another scenery change, even if it was a lesser one and it looks pretty cool. Got killed while harvesting for materials. Damn those scorpions. :( I think this is the last floor of the 4th stratum so there's probably a mean boss waiting for me near the end. Gonna grind my ass off so that my party won't be slaughtered.

If it wasn't for Persona 3 I probably wouldn't have heard/cared about SMT. P3 was so different from what I was used to play, dealed with so many themes not usually covered by other RPGs. I was impressed. Did a little search about the series and was surprised to see how many games there were! How come I've never heard of it before? Decided to try Nocturne and I wasn't dissapointed, it was great. I have yet to play DDS1/2, the Raidou Games and the non PS2 games, but eventually I will.
293  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Best RPG of Last Generation? on: March 03, 2009, 07:02:49 PM
From what I've played so far I'd choose P3, DQVIII and SMT Nocturne.
294  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Which Dragon Quest DS to get... on: February 28, 2009, 01:15:27 PM
DQVI is excellent, especially if you are fond of job systems. You have TONS of classes to choose from. Plus it has a flying bed, how can it not be awesome?

In regards to the original poster, both games are good choices. As people have stated, there are a few references here and there about DQIV in DQV, but nothing to worry about. If you value story in RPGs then DQV might be the one to get, as it features a whole generation and has party talk. Yes, party talk is neat and does make a difference.

Eh, there have been lots of rumors lately. PSP2, PSP 4k... 

I think it's too soon for a new portable. The PSP can still hold on its own very well; what does limit it is the UMD format. Hell, a PSP without the UMD drive would be great, but then Sony would have to actually give a damn about their PSP Store and start selling PSP games online. Newer games that were to be sold in retail should come in a flash memory card (MS Pro Duo in this case) coasting a little more. Older models should be able to run the new games just fine through a fw update.
296  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Persona port for PSP? on: February 24, 2009, 08:26:36 PM
I bought me a PSP a few weeks ago. Best timing ever!
297  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Super Game Journal Turbo II - The New Challengers on: February 22, 2009, 01:37:53 AM
Finished Okami today and all I can say is... WOW! The game is amazing in almost all aspects I can think of. Only con is that it dragged a little near the end, but it's a minor issue. It does deserve all the praise it gets.

Guess I'm going to take a break from gaming for a while though. DQV and my backlog will have to wait.

I'd thought this kind of thing was common. Well, not common, but not rare enough that it's shocking or newsworthy.

People are socked because this one case received a lot of attention by the media. Of course it's still messed up, but unfortunately not surprising.
299  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Quest IX delayed, like, four months and... on: February 16, 2009, 08:51:31 AM
Oh, it's Dragon Quest we are talking about, which means that usually there are delays involved. DQ7 had numerous delays - it was announced during 96 and was released only in 2000. No need to worry.

Okami - Will this game ever end? Beat Ninetails and now I have to go after another baddie in god-knows-where. It's like Mario and the whole "the princess is in ANOTHER castle" thing. Still, I'm enjoying every minute of this game. So much fun.
