2176  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Is the 360 the RPG console of this generation? on: June 13, 2008, 06:54:13 PM
Here's how my game lineup is looking:

Currently playing: Metal Gear Solid 4 (PS3)
July: Civilization Revolution (multiplatform)
August: Tales of Vesperia (360)
September: Infinite Undiscovery (360)
October/November: Fable 2 (360), Gears of War 2 (360), Valkyria Chronicles (PS3), Little Big Planet (PS3)
Sometime in winter: The Last Remnant (360)
Sometime this year: White Knight Chronicles (PS3)

Unless you're seriously hurting for money, restricting yourself to one console doesn't do any good.  Sure, it's pricy to go and buy both at the same time.  But that's why I bought my 360 first, then later bought a PS3.  But if I stuck with just the 360, I'd have missed out on some quality gaming.  Same goes for the reverse situation.

Knowing what's in store for RPGers, it makes more sense to buy a 360 first, then get a PS3.  But again... don't limit yourself to one of the two.  Do yourself a favor and eventually own both.  Let the fanboys bicker and argue over stupid shit.

A Japanese Mass Effect is what I think a lot of folks are hoping for out of the next Star Ocean game.  Here's hoping they deliver.

What the fuck is a 4chan.

Looks like Square Enix is giving Bioware a run for their money with character models in Unreal 3.  I'm such a graphics whore.  What happened to me.

Also, Star Ocean 4 features a gas station!

The arguing over it came up in a few threads back when this place used the RPGBoard script, but obviously it was way after FF7 had released, and not before.  But that stuff definitely existed.  Trust me, I was one of those die-hard anti-Sony kids at the time, and there were plenty of "Final Fantasy 7 sucks" and "Square betrayed Nintendo" pages on Geocities, Xoom, Fortune City, and all the other free webspace providers to browse through back then.  Eventually, I pulled the stick out of my ass and stopped being a one-console-kid that had to bash anything that wasn't on my platform of choice.

It was similar to the bickering and arguing that went on when Working Designs cancelled Lunar: SSS on the Sega Saturn and switched over to localizing it for Playstation.  I should know, because I was one of many folks who participated in that nerd-rage.  It's not a period of my life that I was particularly proud of, let me tell you.

Jesus, it's crazy that it's been over a decade since I first visited this website.

I call BS on this one. There was no one to whine about that. Everyone had bought a PSX over N64 before FFVII was even announced.

You must be new here.

For those that missed it earlier amidst all the (amusing) fighting...

Higher quality version of The Last Remnant trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NXWqR4mDZE4

And the Star Ocean 4 trailer again: http://youtube.com/watch?v=SgcZH4ZWTes

I watched the JP Marketplace version of the Infinite Undiscovery trailer since I was already on it, and the JP voice acting is a lot more bearable.  Previous RPG releases on the console have included the JP voice acting, so I hope this bears true with IU as well.  Interesting stuff to watch as everyone waits for Metal Gear Solid 4 to release tomorrow.

I don't understand what the developers are thinking unless they are getting compensation to make up the difference.

See, this is the problem.  Why do you give a shit if it makes sense?  It doesn't matter.

Star Ocean 4 is coming to 360.  If you want to play Star Ocean 4, you have to buy a 360.  No amount of discussion is going to change this, unless Square Enix decides they want to port it.  Maybe you can wait in line for it like Eternal Sonata.  If Japanese gamers are so stupid that they will outright refuse to buy these games because it's on an American console, then it's their loss.  Not mine.

This is the same stupid bullshit people were screaming when Final Fantasy VII went to Playstation.  History has a knack for repeating itself.

If this were in the US and we were talking a western genre like FPS games on 360 there'd be riots from western gamers

What the hell are you babbling about.  No there wouldn't.  Contrary to popular belief, western consumers are not particularly loyal.  In case you hadn't noticed, the United States is filled with a ton of foreign goods.  No one buys into that "BUY AMERICAN" crap these days.  Customer loyalty isn't rewarded.  These corporations aren't going to cut us a check.  If Halo 4 releases on PlayStation 4, then Halo fans are going to buy PlayStation 4.

Seriously, shut the fuck up.  You can buy a 360 to play these games, or you can stick to your one console lifestyle and miss out.  I on the other hand, don't give a shit what platform any of these games release on, since I get to play them all.

Short version: haha, I get to play Star Ocean 4 and you don't.

Wow guys, Unreal Engine 3 is such a "mediocre" engine.

Don't put words in my mouth thanks.

There's other things, if you'd prefer.  I'll leave that to your imagination.

Wow, another man on the internet with a juvenile brain. :|

Surely, you assume I am talking about bananas and lollipops.

Nothing like an action RPG that you have to pause every other second to heal your stupid AI partners!

The game would have been far better if it were turn-based.  Or some kind of action-gauge derivative.  I was extremely excited about this game, and let down completely.

A lot better than the other two trailers... they actually tried with this one.

It's a good thing you're here to tell us all about how a small-time studio that made one game doesn't like the engine.  Otherwise Epic might have had all of us fooled.
