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.

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.

Of course I am getting it!

Monster joining will be fun. I can't wait to make my slime + slime knight + king slime party.
292  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).

Good news, I was looking forward to Knights in the Nightmare. Devil Survivor would surely be localized, it was a matter of time.

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.
298  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atlus Teaser: SMT! on: January 24, 2009, 01:05:12 AM
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.
299  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Game franchise on: January 24, 2009, 12:41:01 AM
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...
