If I'm not mistaken, IGN has complained about the frame rate in pretty much every single 360 RPG I've ever enjoyed (Lost Odyssey, Blue Dragon, Mass Effect) and I've never found the frame rate in any of those games to be any worse than a minor annoyance (and usually I don't even notice it).  I'm not too worried about Infinite Undiscovery.

On the other hand, I don't know how when I'll get around to getting IU.  Money's tight & I still have mostly untouched copies of Rogue Galaxy, Odin Sphere, Devil Summoner, and Valkyrie Profile 2 in the Action/RPG category.

Valkyrie Profile 2 is not an action rpg. its more of an evolution of turn based rpg's. also i often see people say shadow of the colossus had frame rate issues but i never saw it personally,at least not on the scale of dynamis in ffxi.

its nice to have an exclusive but i thought dark cloud 1 was a shitty zelda wannabe maybe one of these days i'll pick up dark cloud 2 and try it since i liked rouge galaxy.

the concept is interesting but the DQ'esque battle system kills it. i mean its ok if its like DQ8 or ps4 where you actually see your characters perform the attacks. but if an attack results in a slashmark on the enemy then that is lame.

That's when you strike from the front on hard mode. That's exactly the example I just gave, didn't you read it? Enemy's advantage will never happen if you strike them from behind.

i know but i was under the impression that enemies actually had to strike you to get advantage.

Well, in P3's case it's almost always your fault when it's enemy's advantage. I have never seen, or just can't recall, a situation when I couldn't have moved in a different direction to avoid giving the enemy first strike. I was playing for 3 hours straight earlier this day and I was near a green teleport with a shadow right on it. I opted not to wait for his back to show and just hit his face to initiate battle. He had advantage and I had a persona that was weak to ice. Funny thing happened: he used Bufu on me three times in a row. I could have avoided that if I retreated and then came back with strike to the back for player's advantage. So, the way I see it, Hama and Mudo are less of an excuse in P3 for getting cheap deaths other than lack of patience when waiting for exposed backs. Otherwise, yeah, it's cheap in something like Nocturne or DDS, but I like it.

not really? i noticed on hard that sometimes when you strike an enemy instead of the battle starting neutral the enemy will have the advantage for no reason. when i destroyed my cd i encountered a bunch of tiara's and had a light weak persona equiped,and for no reason they had the advantage. i ended up dying because they spammed a high level hama spell until all my characters were dead and destroyed all my homonculus.

Cheap deaths have almost always been in SMT games. I love that about the games, and I hope there's more of it. I'm talking about both the stupidity of not knowing what your enemy can use and the random Mudo or Hama spells.

it wouldn't be so bad if it didn't send you back to the title screen. maybe do it like wild arms 5 where it lets you replay the battle. the rage comes not from the cheap death but the loss of time especially since i went from boss to boss in tartarus.

this thread only serves to remind me how sad i am that the ps2 remakes and gaiden will never see the light of day here. perhaps they are too expensive to translate.
2289  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Persona 4 on: July 24, 2008, 07:01:56 PM
i hope this game takes it easy on the cheap deaths. cheap deaths lead to the destruction of my FES CD on my second playthrough on hard.
2290  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Holy Crap. Final Fantasy XIII for Xbox 360 on: July 24, 2008, 06:59:27 PM
i'm pretty much in shock right now. ffxiii WAS my reason for owning a ps3. i've stayed away from the 360 because it's home to tons of the genre i hate. first person shooters.
2291  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Unoriginal Topic: Favorite Battle System on: June 15, 2008, 02:56:30 PM
as good as shining force is i'm gonna have to put it behind super robot wars most recent offerings. even fire emblem i dont think is a match for SRW's basic battle system even if you take away spirit commands. can knights block for mages? no. as for other battle systems i love theres the wild arms hex system used in WA 4 and 5 and of course valkyrie profile is pure awesomeness. when it comes to more traditional rpg's is close between FFX and persona 3

Let's not turn this into a PS3/Xbox360 sucks/rocks/vs. discussion.

Sadly, get used to it, the Japanese developers certainly aren't helping any by splitting up an already niche genre in the west so thinly.

i agree

more developers need to intervene then.
2294  Media / Single-Player RPGs / voice acting so bad its funny. on: June 09, 2008, 02:52:11 AM
im not one of those people that harps sub over dub. in fact i watch subbed and dubbed bleach. and if i have the option to watch a battle subbed or dubbed i'd go for subbed. those battles crys and such just sound much better from jp voice actors. something else to keep in mind is that english voice acting tends to be better when there is no lip syncing involved.
2295  Media / Single-Player RPGs / i'm usually not one to complain about rpg stories but.... on: June 09, 2008, 02:43:26 AM
i'd rather a game be to easy than too hard.
