Thanks for the info guys!

I went and did some of my own adventures on seeing both programs in action, thanks to youtube, and found that I'm pretty torn on which to use. I am going to have to give them both a try. They both have their pros and cons, but I'll see what I can do.

The reason why I ask is that I plan on using a lot of recycled images from other games because I plan on throwing some Bounty Hunting in the game. Whichever allows me to easily put image placement during battle is what I'm looking for.

And I did see the resemblances to RPG Makers VX immediately when I saw Eternal Eden, Dincrest! I was really surprised at the quality and visual, but the turn off was the battle background. Though with some more programming help I can change that, so I may go with VX. I'll let you guys know my decision in the end. When I do begin the game, I'll throw a thread up to let you know the process of the game's completion. ;)

I'm searching for an RPG Maker tool for the PC and would like to know the choices I have to chose from. I know about RPG Maker XP & RPG Maker VX. If these are the best ones to chose one and I'm left to make the decion on one of them, does anyone have their own experiences or personal opinion on any of them to bestow upon me?

Money is not an issue, so let me know any others that are better ones out there regardless of price. I'm willing to throw down a maximum of $100 on the product.

Apologies if this doesn't go in this section, but I thought it would fit seeing it was about Computer RPGs. Thank you!

My god, the characters look even more doll-like than Infinite Undiscovery’s. It's so fucking eerie.

Hopefully it will be a fun game though.


Glad to know I wasn't the only one to notice this. It's getting too cutesy for me, one of those characters better die in unspeakable ways. I need plot twists, DARN IT!


Well, in the last pic in that famitsu link a little girl is about to get her head bitten off by a monster. Is that good enough? :-)

Anyway, I think the style is pretty similar to SO3, but with better graphics.

No! That picture was too cute! There must be despair, not... cuteness! I am looking forward to the game regardless, haha.

I was talking more about the creepy face on the chair but yeah that's a good point too.

Ohh yeah, I saw that chair fulfilling his sweet wishes with her when she puts her back on that chair.The chair gets 5 stars for winning.

I'm afraid to even play this game in the event she gets hit by something and cracks into millions of pieces. She looks like a porcelain dolls with a sci-fi wardrobe.

TWEWY's soundtrack is similar in style to the Shoji Meguro stuff in Persona 3 and 4, but I didn't think it was quite as good.  It's like comparing margarine to butter.  Some may say it's like comparing Coke and Pepsi.  "Calling" was my favorite song on the TWEWY soundtrack. 

I can't say anything about Eternal Sonata since I never played it, but I think my review of The World Ends With You was fair.  I liked the game quite a bit (some of the gameplay innovations are genius: like being able to adjust multiple aspects of the difficulty level on the fly) but it is far from perfect. 

TWEWY is one of those games that does not make a good first impression (largely due to Neku himself) but becomes stronger as it goes on and ends really well.  On the other hand, people say that Eternal Sonata starts out awesome, but falls apart toward the end. 

Eternal Sonata's ending and Credits were pretty BS. I was hoping for something different, but the final boss was perfect. The credits were FUBAR and just wasn't what I expected. The music in the game is what captivated me though, though Disc 2 & 3 were pretty weak on the OST.

Game was pretty hard without any strategy, but sometimes it was blind luck for me. Good game, same with Growlanser III.

No amount of face palms can express the stupidity and vengeance of people today.

Growlanser 2 has a few paths where you can join the villains. Those were my favorite parts of the game.

Ohh did I ever love choosing to overthrow the kingdom. :)

Haha, that was said with conviction! I picked up the album because it's something to listen for background music or softly playing when working, but not something I would listen while playing a game.

Pick up Sonic The Hedgehog 06 if you're looking for laughs, haha. I played Eternal Sonata and loved it, but that's probably I got a kick out of the naming of everything. Music Nerd Reporting :P

Especially one that shows his beginning and rise of terror to the domination of a world.
1349  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: When do RPGs stop being fun? on: December 26, 2008, 08:37:57 PM
They stop being fun for me when the random encounter rate is higher than the price on gas during war. About ToV, I'm finding that game to be pretty fun right now. I started it this week and not seeing much problems at all. My sister and I actually find the skits pretty funny, especially when the frames run away or attacking each other. Haha

I beg to differ on this one... while updates may not be as common as in WoW for example, there is still alot of effort and work being put into this one...

Currently the most popular free MMORPG around I believe, I was looking for that when trying to find a new MMO to waste time on.. and it really is a very new and exciting game with loads of content... up to 9 individual characters under your control, so you never get bored with just the one char, and you can outfit and equip each one, and then its basically turn based from there.

Whats interesting is that its based on the world in the alleged past so its got towns and cities that really exist and guilds can work to take control of these towns and then get to manage each part of it  and rebuild it, which is fun.

also the market system, it totally player dependant, you set a price for what you want to sell and other people can search for it, so you can buy cheap from other ppl and sell for higher, quite unique...

also, since it is still technically a beta, theres new content being added all the time... just a few weeks ago the level cap was raised from 100 - 120, and new towns were being placed in the game like New York, and theres due to be alot more new content coming up soon...

If you want to get into the scene of a more contemporary MMO without the cost, then you should at least give this a go

I actually have been playing it for the past couple of nights and love it. They did something that EVERY MMORPG should have = AutoMove to the next quest. I'm a fan of exploration, but I despise having to look for someone I never heard of or seen. The battle music is fabulous, I've never heard such a catchy battle song in an MMORPG for a while. Not a fan of the generic title screen music, I hear it everywhere else, but I digress.

Yeah, the game is really fun and it may be a long term thing if I have 30 minutes or an hour to play around with at night. For now it's definitely a pass.
