Gonna say Strange Journey or Etrian Odyssey.

My vote's for the PS2 Wizardry: Tale of the Forsaken Land.

I'm sure someone here's played it, but overall, it's the most criminally overlooked RPG I've ever played. Great story, artwork, music, everything.


As for non RPGs, Xyanide.

Seconding Urushihara and Kaneko.

One thing I love about Kazuma's art: his female characters have a normal look to them, they're never ridiculously proportioned.

Take my favorite Kaneko character:

Pure classiness.


I also really like Shigenori Soejima's art. I first took a liking when I played Stella Deus(which has beautiful art), then he took Persona 3 and 4 and ran with it.


As for the western RPG, V:TM Bloodlines had some really nice concept art.

I enjoyed Baroque. It's fun to play, has an interesting setting, and the challenge appealed to me.

Also, each play unveils more of the (admittedly obtuse) plot.


Not really sure why a game with stellar gameplay and decent everything else gets an EC, but to each their own. :P


Also, agreed on Rhapsody DS not being worth anything. It was the let down of the year, and I loved the PS1 version.

One SMT demon would devour the entire cast of Pokemon.


I really love SJ's music so far. Very ambient.

I think it's funny that so far, Devil Survivor was bloodier. Corpses would have pools of blood under them.


SJ is definitely darker though, especially in language and tone.
861  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lunar: Harmony of Silver Star on: March 11, 2010, 12:20:48 AM
I never played the original Lunar, but I really canīt imagine Alex playing anything but the ocarina.



At least it's not a Zelda ripoff.
862  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lunar: Harmony of Silver Star on: March 10, 2010, 11:46:41 AM
I recall when they said they were going to bring back elements from the original games, which originally had me psyched. (I bought the very first Lunar on the Sega CD when it came out, so I'm a little obsessed with the series. :P )


From what I've seen, this is just another remake of the PS1 version.

If they had reverted the ocarina to Alex playing a harp again, I would have bought it on day 1. (And better let, leaving Luna behind when going to Meribia.)

But I've acknowledged that this remake isn't for me, it's for the newer fans, so I'm not going to let it get to me.
863  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Is the JRPG forumla growing stale? on: February 04, 2010, 03:49:45 PM
I have too many good RPGs waiting to be played to waste time on bad ones.
864  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Is the JRPG forumla growing stale? on: February 04, 2010, 01:37:08 PM
Atlus seems to be the only developers series capable of being consistently good as of late. Even the subpar SMTs are still enjoyable at worst.


The stuff Tri-Ace is putting out seems embarrassingly bad, aside from being pretty, but that doesn't take an RPG very far.


Though Half-Minute Hero was amazing. I think as long as developers manage to innovate and not retread old ground, RPGs will be fine.
865  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Interesting quote from the Phantasy Star IV director on: January 29, 2010, 06:41:40 PM
For me, the most interesting bit was learning that she was the director of Magic Knight Rayearth on the Saturn.

It's a totally different game.
866  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Idea Factory: how do these hacks stay in business? on: January 27, 2010, 02:00:49 PM
It seems like every single game they release is mediocre at best. Stereotypical art design, pandering fan service, terrible gameplay(and usually voice acting to go with it, hi Chaos Wars), etc.


So why are they still in business? Why do people keep buying their crappy games?

And worst of all, why would anyone let them near Sakura Wars V? (They're doing the Wii version, rumor has it.)


I'm hard pressed to think of a single good game on this list.

I replayed it not long ago.

I still loved it, if not more than I did the first time. The story is amazing.
868  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lunar: Harmony of Silver Star on: January 22, 2010, 10:34:39 AM
Not very impressed. Burg is even smaller than before, the voice acting is mediocre at best, and the OP song has no flow at all.

And I swear some of these lines are DIRECTLY from Working Designs' localization. Victor has good reason to be annoyed.
869  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lunar: Harmony of Silver Star on: January 21, 2010, 11:11:22 PM
Actually, the Sega CD games are by far the hardest, especially Eternal Blue.

The Cave of Trial in Silver Star Sega CD is a nightmare. It's a cake walk in Silver Star Story.


Eternal Blue, one word: Borgan.

He's a joke in the remake.
870  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atlus USA announces Persona 3 Portable - Release Date July 6 on: January 21, 2010, 04:57:28 PM
And yet still no Growlanser PSP. :(

I have to call you out on this.  Do you always have to turn every Atlus thread into a complaint about the lack of Growlanser? 

Yeah, I'm not running into every Nintendo related thread I'm seeing lamenting that Mother 3 isn't coming out here or that Earthbound appears set to never appear on the VC. I WOULD like both of them, but there's no use dragging down every thread by complaining.

That's a little different. Mother 3 was released for a dead if not dying system. The PSP is in its prime right now, and Growlanser PSP looks beautiful.

They've released some downright awful games for the PSP in comparison.
