Well, I've heard that the demo starts somewhere not on the start thus making it a bit confusing for me, I kinda got overwhelmed tbh (or maybe SRPG ain't my thing).

I should try the actual game thought... But I'm kinda leaning towards Eternal Sonata (ES or VC?)

Is Valkyria really good? Just wondering.

I have tried the demo but got confused... I didn't know where to go and what was happening.

9) Radiata Stories (being able to kick the NPCs is hilarious)

Oh yeah lol and I also found the
Code:
supposed rape scene/forced strip scene of one of the female enemies (she thought they were gonna "do" something to her)
funny.
1414  Media / Single-Player RPGs / NIS America Announces Event, Teases New PS3 RPG Title on: April 23, 2009, 04:16:21 AM
Found this in RPGamer: http://www.rpgamer.com/news/Q2-2009/042209a.html

NIS America has revealed to RPGamer that the company will be holding an event in San Francisco on May 7 to show off its upcoming releases. Called the "Holy Drunken Shenanigans, Badman!" event, NIS hints at some new announcements, as well as special guests from Japan.

NIS America also confirmed with us that the company will be showing off a currently unannounced PlayStation 3 RPG at the event. RPGamer will have an interview available regarding this game shortly after the event.

Besides the unannounced title, it can be assumed that Phantom Brave: We Meet Again and possibly even the already confirmed Mana Khemia 2 will show up at the event. At previous events, in past years, NIS America revealed Blade Dancer and Dragoneer's Aria.

I'm sorta doubting the PS3 since there aren't much RPGs in that system but then I haven't played them yet though so I'm not sure if they're good/epic... Are they good/epic? :P
1416  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What makes RPGs [an] Epic? on: April 21, 2009, 03:57:24 AM
For me... Usually if the story is great (adapted or original) it becomes epic. It makes it more epic if there is nice (and possibly original) sceneries. Add it with good music makes it even more epic.

Personally, I find FFX epic. XD

Oh, I've heard that this FF has no more MP and EXP... But maybe that's only for the demo version *hopes its just the only in the demo version*
1418  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Secret Party Members in RPGs on: April 21, 2009, 03:53:41 AM
Depends actually. If the secret char is cool, why not? :P

Secret characters that I liked were from the Suikoden series and FFVI...
Code:
namely Gogo, the male/female strong copycat

I remember the "scientific" justification in Parasite Eve being utterly laughable and ridiculous.

By Square's standards, though, it was pretty good :p

I liked PE's battle system. It was reasonably fast, more or less involved, and kind of like VS' only I actually understood what was going on.

I found the concept cool though :P

People mutating, animals mutating, genetics. That game got me into science. lol

First movie that got me really scared (second was Exorcist).
1421  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Need Help Picking my next DS RPG Purchase on: April 20, 2009, 10:13:20 AM
Yeah, I'm also looking for a good RPG to play on my DS. I have Chrono Trigger and I beat it for the third time yesterday. Although its fun, I feel like I need to find more RPG's for my DS so when i'm bored and at work on duty (navy). I was looking at Avalon Code yesterday and was wondering if it was any good but set it down. T_T I'm sure there arent alot of good rpg's out there but i'm hoping...anyone have any suggestions?

I heard my friend said FFIV was pretty good in the DS (but then again... I've never played FFIV yet so I can't really judge). I've played FFIII in the DS but it kinda seemed tiring and repetitive :|.

You can also try Suikoden Tierkreis.

Off-Topic:
Here are some non-RPG suggestions XD (because most of my DS games are non-RPG lol):
Phoenix Wright Series
Cooking Mama
Room 215

it didn't feel like a Final Fantasy to me, more of an offline MMORPG. :P

See, this is what I'm talking about. It's the same type of retarded statement people made about FFX not feeling like a Final Fantasy because it didn't have a overview of the world map.

FFXII is an ATB system, which is the same damn system FFIV - IX had. It's the same thing people. Oh noes! I fights monsters on teh map instead of going to a new screen just like FFXI! Oh noes! I have teh gambit system and am too damn dumb to figure out how to control my party without it, that makes it an offline FFXI!

It plays nothing like an MMO, online or offline. Trust me, I've wasted enough of my life on UO, EQ, EQ2, WoW and FFXI to know this. I could write a fucking book on how FFXII does not play like a MMO.

The only thing even close to an MMO would be that monsters drop their body parts to sell instead of just money and the stupid random item drops form chests, both of which were in RPGs long before UO.

It was the chest drops the propagandized FFXII as a offline MMO, which than allowed all the other sheep bhaaing the same crap out.

Personally, that's just how I saw it. I'm not stating it's an offline MMORPG. I tried to give it a chance but I couldn't stand it. Sorry I'm not a big fan of FFXII. :P

Chrono Trigger is a good RPG to purchase, very replayable since it has multiple endings.
1424  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Your Favorite RPGs and Why on: April 20, 2009, 01:16:19 AM
Here are more of my faves:

Alundra - Not exactly an RPG but it's awesome, kinda similar to Zelda but still fun, and the bosses look cool. And the entering dreams concept and puzzles (despite that they were frustrating) were awesome

Lunar 1 (have barely played Lunar 2 :() - Simple game yet awesome, i don't know why but it was great.

FFIX - One my favorite FF's, next to 10. I kinda felt the "Final Fantasy" theme in this game (i heard this was the maker's favorite FF). Awesome music, awesome towns and really cute chars.

FFVII - I like it but not an extreme fan of it (I kinda think the FFVII original is the best rather than its sequels... then again, i've barely played the sequels).

Secret of Evermore - I enjoyed the alchemy concept and the concept wherein you travel into different places having different era-like environments.

Illusion of Gaia - Great game even though it seemed somewhat short. I was fascinated by the
Code:
concept of the ancient wonders such as Mu, Nazca Plains, Tower of Babel, etc.

FFVI - It was big game alright, so many secrets, so much drama, and two worlds. Great story.

Breath of Fire I - Simple RPG, awesome game.

Suikoden 1 - This RPG got me hooked into the entire Suikoden series, the original 108 stars of destiny concept, having your own castle, etc.

Grandia II (not sure) - I really enjoyed it and it was the only RPG that I've finished in the Dreamcast, I enjoyed fighting the
Code:
body parts
lol.

Wild Arms - The story, the ability to summon different golems, the length of the game (especially the secrets).

Chrono Cross - Great story and awesome gameplay. Chrono Series rock!

Xenogears - Great story, music, and places (like Shevat, i <3 Shevat).
1425  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Your Favorite RPGs and Why on: April 19, 2009, 03:53:30 AM
I'll add some more later, here are my first 5 :P Just try not to bash other people's favorite RPGs haha

Suikoden 2:
Simple game play, able to collect multiple characters, semi-customizable characters, the awesome piano intro song, story about two great friends (SPOILER: and one of the friends was a traitor and both lead opposing forces), and the game feel (traditional-like).

Earthbound:
Cute gameplay, simple story but strangely enticing, very original (kids fighting aliens in a modern world using bats and frying pans and shopping for equipment and stuff at malls), and funny.

Persona 4:
One of the best storylines that I've heard, great characters and all of them had depth, unique gameplay, J-pop like soundtrack and they were really catchy, hilarious, and tackled multiple personal teenage issues.

Chrono Trigger:
Originality, the gameplay and ability to combine certain techniques with other people's techniques, soundtrack, the story about time traveling and ability to change events in the past.

FFX:
Game feel and the environments and places of the game(Besaid Island), story, super cool aeons, music which range from relaxing to emotional, and the unique gameplay and sphere grid.
