Well, at least the clothes tearing make sense in this game. All that fighting with monsters and what not... yeah.

Until you realize that she isn't even in her own body (assuming that's what the bottom right hand bar represents).

Then the kingdom burnt down, fell over, then sank into the swamp in an attack by a bunch of pissed off gnomes with nowhere to go thanks to their home's ecology being destroyed by the unfortunate slaying of teh greed dragon.

I feel sad that there are people who fight and go insane over these things. :/

You mean like here.

I once saw an anime where a woman would get people addicted to her noodles by mixing in nicotine. Maybe.....?

That's nothing.

Oh shit. Thanks for reminding me of the Lost Kingdom games. THOSE were the best games of the decade.

When they get to the cave they encounter a lovely beauty named Mary (Sue) who warns the two intrepid heroes of a trap set by Bebop & Rocksteady.

I am hearing a lot of praise for Eternal Poison lately.  This interests me, because I always see the game on the shelf and think "this looks really cool, but I heard it's bad". 

Where would I have heard that the game is bad?  It looks like a game I would want to enjoy.

You might.

It's a fairly solid SRPG with a few issues revolving around the primary gimmick of the game. The primary gimmick involves overkilling pretty much everyone and everything in sight. The game of course knows this and makes it as difficult as it can for you through methods such as requiring you to sperg over a shitload of numbers then combining them with an enemy's numbers through a bit of algebra and alchemy, putting in arcane requirements to confront bosses, most of which get impatient and run off if you don't secure them fast enough, also they come with barriers that block everything save for their one weakness which can get as particulate as requiring an attack from another hidden boss from a path that you may not have taken, and also having to watch out for some assholes that will either attack or release an overkilled enemy before you can claim them.

The game basically wants you to get through on your NG+ run since its not that long of a game otherwise.

On the plus side, it features multiple stories, featuring multiple parties (through the mercs are the same), running through multiple branching paths, with some excellent art for a Flight Plan game (by far), decent VAing, and the plots themselves are kinda Persona 3/4ish.

Just for the love of god, turn off battle animations. Their loading times are hideous.

Growlanser and SMT: DS are so far the only SRPGs that Atlus themselves have done.

Code:
Unless you're referring to what Atlus localized games make for good SRPGs in which case I suggest the SRW:OG games on the GBA.

If its a PS2 game you want then Eternal Poison's fairly decent.

That said, I wouldn't count on them coming out with any other SRPGs any time soon since they seem to have developed a great hate for them in recent years.

Their caboose is getting whipped badly if this is their fall back position.

I figured if anybody gave a shit about this, it'd be this site.
4136  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Would you like to see a comeback for the SaGa series? on: August 09, 2010, 12:31:33 AM
I was wanting to get into The Last Remnant but I heard the 360 version is plagued with glitches and slowdowns and a PS3 port is out of the question.  I would like to buy the PC version, but is it any difference in the framerate?  Or is the PC version superior in every way?

Which Romancing SaGa games have been translated?  Was it just 3?

PC all the way. There are no other versions.

Also PS2's RS is RS1. No other RS game has made it out of Japan.

I would like to see another SaGa game. I thought Romancing Saga was a great way to bring Saga to the PS2, maybe one day they will make a next gen Saga game.

That one day was years ago.

It's call The Last Remnant and you should play it (on the PC).

That said, they really need to do a remake of Romancing SaGa 2 stat.

So was there anything not completely godawful about Chaos;Head, or was it just the anime that was an unsalvageable trainwreck?

The atmosphere and sense of tension are probably the best aspects of Chaos;Head (both lost in the transition to anime). I'd say that the humorous bits are also pretty good. However, the story does melt down toward the end.

That was my problem with it. The idea of a murder mystery centered on a lame neurotic obsessive shut-in was interesting, but then I suppose that the writers remembered that their fanbase was exactly the same and decided to explain everything away with magic and that the main character was God with a harem or something awful. If the game has the same overall plot as the anime then it is indeed utter shit.

Of course, for me, the only thing worse than having an awful concept for something is to have a decent concept then promptly runs that shit into the ground. Namely because if it starts out awful then that's all I needed to know, but if it starts well then devolves into something awful then I'm much more likely to wind up getting robbed of 6 hours of my life.

Another godawful game of the decade. Lufia: Ruins of Lore.

Dekar may be slow but even he realized that he had much better things to do than to waste his time with your party, even if you were in the middle of trying to save the world from some utterly ineffectual threat at the time. At least all the bugs didn't keep it from being unbeatable (though the true winning move is to never play at all).
