Agreed! I'm not a fan of too heavy customization (as it gets in the way of the author's storytelling), but some tasteful costume options are always welcome. Tales of Symphonia did a great job of this (I hope Abyss does this as well, I'm still in the middle, though), and I loved going out and doing the side quests to get more outfits... it was a little irritating that it effected your stat improvements, but that far along in the game, it didn't matter that much anyway.

I also love it when characters change outfits due to story elements. Suikoden V does a great job of this with the Prince. I remember FF8 having some very good timely costume changes (in fact, I think it was the first console rpg to do this very much).

I just don't want things to go overboard with customization, because costumes start to not mean anything if there are 100 options to choose from, and many have no relation to the character's personality, but a small number here and there is very much appreciated.


excuse me while i say the authors storytelling can kiss my ass. fran might of actually spent some time in my main party if it wasnt for her awful attire.

i didnt think the millenia thing was that big deal because millenia was in fact a side of elenas personality.

the thing is..the dead sea isnt the only place you see them. you also see them on opassa beach before fighting the last boss.

i think people might be refering to grandia 1(though i have never played grandia1 myself) because in my opinion mareg's death was the most meaningful death in any rpg i have ever played. mainly because it hit you in two ways. first theres the emotional factor of mareg dying so that everyone can live,seriously i almost cried. second in terms of usefulness mareg was just an awesome character so his loss is easily felt by the player. aeris death was retarded because  its like "oh she died,no problem i'll just give her materia to someone else."

perhaps my understanding of the word is lacking but i hated how it basically nulified the events of crono trigger and killed off most of its characters.

Only two series come to mind that exploit their longstanding success from the past, today: Shining Force and Phantasy Star. Oddly enough, they both come from Sega. Shining Force has gone from a fun strategy RPG series to an average action RPG series. Then, Phantasy Star went from a classic menu turn-based RPG series to a carbon-copy MMO series, IMO anyways. But yeah, Losfer mentioned these already, I have to concur.


I agree as well, those are the two that I will always remember for their fall from greatness.  Both (arguably) were right with the other candidates for pinnacles of their original genres, atleast to me, and now both are pure piles of you know what...


Yeah, I still can't believe they ditched probably the coolest character in Grandia III, the mother.


fall from greatness? maybe i just dont understand since phantasy star online was my introduction to the series but the only of the older games i can bring myself to play,and enjoy is phantasy star 4. perhaps it has more to do with the fact that i value gameplay over story. sorry but the gameplay of ps 1-3 is shit. phantasy star 4 stands up very well to the test of time wich is why i wish sega would release the phantasy star generations here in the hopes that they would be the old games with updated graphics and ps4'ish gameplay. like them or not the online phantasy star's are no where near worthy of being mentioned in the same breath as the recent shining force games.

i disagree with the people crying about phantasy star,but whatever people are entitled to thier own opinions. theres something else worth mentioning here. games that on thier own are good but are horrible sequels. chrono cross and valkyrie profile 2 being the biggest offenders. both games retcon.
2454  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Can* English Voice Acting ruins Characters in RPGs? on: March 27, 2007, 11:47:38 PM
i thought the voice for fran was quite apropiate. maybee you need to get some and um.. you know actually hear a black woman speak. there was many things i hated about ffxii but the voice acting isnt one of them. for the record i hated fran but her voice wasnt even close to the reason.
2455  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Is it just me or is SoA putting more effort into localizing? on: March 25, 2007, 11:53:59 PM
its shining force but its not a tactical rpg so i cant be bothered to care.
2456  Media / Single-Player RPGs / a feature all future rpg's should have is..... on: March 25, 2007, 11:46:38 PM
yeah thats one of the reasons i loved the kotor games.
2457  Media / Single-Player RPGs / a feature all future rpg's should have is..... on: March 24, 2007, 10:54:22 PM
rogue galaxy has like 4-5 costumes for each character and all they effect are elemental resistances and if one you like has poor resistances you can fix that by equiping an elemental sheild. maybee its a girl thing but i love it when games have alternate costumes. and they can greatly effect how much i can stand a character.
2458  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Wild Arms Vth Vanguard on: March 24, 2007, 03:00:44 AM
actually rebecca kinda looks like virginia gone wild.
2459  Media / Single-Player RPGs / a feature all future rpg's should have is..... on: March 24, 2007, 02:39:42 AM
i used the kolona costume with presea and had no problems owning the game even on the highest difficulty. rogue galaxy also has alternate costumes. i believe tales of the abyss has them as well but they are no longer attached to titles or something.
2460  Media / Single-Player RPGs / a feature all future rpg's should have is..... on: March 24, 2007, 01:17:30 AM
Alternate Costumes for all characters!
the only game i think of where it was kinda sad was xenosaga 2,and 3. its especially sad in xenosaga 3 since you cant even unlock the costume shion starts the game with. but enough of that this isnt a rant about xenosaga 3. i demand more games that let you change characters costumes!
