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.

From what I've played so far I'd choose P3, DQVIII and SMT Nocturne.

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.

I bought me a PSP a few weeks ago. Best timing ever!

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.

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.
295  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Super Game Journal Turbo II - The New Challengers on: February 07, 2009, 09:33:30 PM
Okami - Did so many side quests in the city that ended up forgetting where I was supposed to go. Good thing there is an old lady in Agatha Forest who gives a few hints about what you should do next. I'm now searching for a whirlpool to visit the dragonian's (sp?) lair.
296  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Quest V on: February 04, 2009, 03:00:52 PM
Of course I am getting it!

Monster joining will be fun. I can't wait to make my slime + slime knight + king slime party.
297  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Persona port for PSP? on: February 04, 2009, 02:56:07 PM
Yeah, I've never played the first Persona so I want to experience the dungeon crawling the way it was meant to be; in first person. 

Same here.

Now there are like 5 games on the PSP that I'm interested in. Time to get a PSP!

EOII - The boss of the 3rd stratum proved to be quite a challenge. It kept killing my Medic and then proceeding  to wipe out the rest of my party. I only took it down after like five tries. Would have been easier if I could just finish it off with Climax, but it isn't affected by it.

I'm now on floor 18th of the 4th stratum. The battle theme changed to a more dramatic one, though I still prefer the first one. I don't know if I'm underleveled or if monsters have high defense, because only my Gunner is doing decent damage. The monsters keep poisoning/paralyzing/confusing my party members, which is giving my poor Medic a lot or work. She keeps running out of TP even though she has like 200+ of it.

I also got a key to open the sealed doors. Opened the door in floor 2 and almost got killed by a duo of mole monsters. :P

I'll need to get through both EO games myself, but I have a suspicion that people are associating "plot" with lots of cutscenes and characters that the writers made rather than blank slates you make. I've seen statements by the localization team about how there really is a story in EO, and I've seen 'plotless' statements made about Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne in contrast to Digital Devil Saga, when really it has fewer, but denser cutscenes.

Indeed, lack of cutscenes =/=  lack of plot. It's a shame most people (at least that I know) think otherwise.

Back on topic

Okami - Poor Amaterasu, seems everyone wants a ride. First it was that sake girl, then that other girl from the city and now it's Issun. Being a god is surely a tough job. After my adventures in the sunken ship I finally entered the castle.

I like fanboys. They give out good entertainment and I love reading fanboys argue over the internet.

Agreed. Fanboys are an interesting race indeed.

This. FFVII on the 360 will be the apocalypse (for the fanboys, that is).
