EOII - I don't understand why so many people bitch about the supposedly lack of a plot, because floors 14-15th had plenty of it. I knew there was something fishy about that old man... Did all side quests available at the bar and I'm now preparing to face off the boss.

Am I the only one bothered by the fact that there are so many people on other sites clamoring for this to be an announcement for Persona 5?

Nope, I agree with giving a break to the Persona series. I won't deny that P4 was a great game, it was. However it didn't have that "freshness" that P3 had.

That said, it is my opinion that every respectable gamer should own a DS.


I bought my DS mainly to play the DQ remakes, but was pleasantly surprised by the amount of quality games on the system. Besides that, being able to play the GBA titles is always a nice addition. When I bought the PS2 I just had (the first) Kingdom Hearts and DQ8 in mind. Though I'm not much a fan of KH anymore, I'm still glad I didn't pass the PS2 like I did with its predecessor; the PS2 is the system that got me back to the console world.

Sweet, more dungeon crawling goodness! Time to buy a PSP...

Digged up DQI&II, currently playing DQI. Saved the princess and got the Shiny Harp. Since I don't remember where I'm supposed to go, I just kept roaming throught the fields until I got killed by a random monster.

Okami: Hands down the best cel-shading I've seen on the PS2, plus it has an excellent gameplay to back it up. The characters are all very likeable, specially Issun; he is such a little smartass, love him. Took a while to get used to the brush controls, though I still have some trouble drawing circles. I finally understand why so many people were saddened when Clover Studios disbanded... Did a few side-quests and I'm now on my wait to the city.

The remake of Dragon Quest VI.

Can somebody give me a wii?

Haha, I want one too ;)

Breathtaking screens, the backgrounds are gorgeous. Hope it plays as good as it looks.
293  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Have you ever cried or gotten emotional from an RPG? on: January 04, 2009, 02:19:32 PM
And no, tears of boredom from playing Final Fantasy XII doesn't count.

Oh. :(

Well, the ending of the first Kingdom Hearts really got me.

Sora did save everyone, yet his deepest wish, to reunite with his friends, wasn't fulfilled. Worse, everyone got separated again after a brief meeting. And then Simple and Clean starts playing... one of my favorites endings, for sure.

Shame SE killed my interest in the series after KH2.
294  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Persona 4 on: January 04, 2009, 02:12:23 PM
does anyone think this game isn't as good as persona 3? for me persona 3 grabbed my attention early and never really let go. so when the cheap instant kill deaths came i wanted to keep playing. however the plot in p4 is taking FOREVER to get interesting, so when the cheap death came in that sauna dungeon i was all like fuck this i'm going back to eternal poison and havn't booted up p4 since 12/27.

I thought the same thing (and still do). P4 only picked up my interest when the game reached September, while P3 had my attention right from the beggining.

In regards to the S-Links, I have to agree that most of them were inferior in comparison to the ones in P3, the exceptions being Naoto, Yukiko, the Dojimas, the nurse and the old lady. Kanji's was a letdown... I expected him to be more Shinjiro-like.

Rise just hit a new level in the annoyance spectrum, Yosuke in a close 2nd place.

After the mapping hell that was floor 12th I finally reached floor 13th in EOII. Even if it comes in little bits, the story is getting surprisingly interesting.

I can't get enough of watching Kino no Tabi, excellent series. Also watching Lain, Boogiepop Phantom and Mushi-shi. Finished Toward the Terra (the tv series, not the movie) a few days ago. Wasn't expecting much but it ended up being pretty good, the final episodes were epic. Droped the ToTA anime, at least for a while... seems like I'm another victim of the game-to-anime adaptations.
297  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: When do RPGs stop being fun? on: December 27, 2008, 03:47:56 AM
Basically when the story starts to drag and the gameplay can't hold the game on its own. I can stand a bad/non-existant plot if the battle system is good, as well as I can bear an awfully designed system if the story is good enough for my taste and/or the characters are enjoyable.

Done with Persona 4, I'm glad they actually tied the loose ends of the story. Great game, but still does not top Persona 3, specially story wise.
299  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Completed RPGs: 2008 Edition on: December 26, 2008, 03:10:14 AM
Let's see...

Persona 3 FES
Tales of The Abyss
Shadow of the Colossus
Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne
Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow
Phoenix Wright - Ace Attorney
Chrono Trigger DS
Dragon Quest IV
Final Fantasy IV

My new year resolution is to beat the first Disgaea, as it remains unfinished since 2006 :P

Persona 4 music was overall kind of bland in my opinion, it pales in comparison to P3/The Answer soundtrack.

Back on topic, got the normal ending in Persona 4. The final boss was so lame...

...it pops out from nowhere. It would have been better if they did explain more about that big eye thing. The final sequence of the normal ending was pretty sweet.

Now I just need to finish that optional dungeon and finally beat the game.
