just beat the game and my overall enjoyment was negatively impacted by how much i cherished the first game.the character designs are pretty lame compared to the first game as well. oh well bonus dungeon time!

the song from the maze of tribulations is called journey to deep space or something and its also in VP1 and radiata stories. could be in star ocean 2 but i dunno since i never beat that game.

Sounds Greek/Norse esque.......

Consider it purchased.


seconded.

but i really wish sony would make a gameboy player type device either for ps2 or ps3.

edit:after reading the article it sounds like you may be able to create the main character in a similar style to KOTOR wich is excellent.

i think the fact that i played i pso first makes it a little more neat because all the cross references. like the tinkerbells dog quest ,the cake shop ,psycho wand,eclipse torch. theres also a few enemies centaur/choas bringer, chaos sorcerer um the witches look sorta like dark berlas,grass assassins. some aspects of this game appear to have influenced psu as well such as skills plus the way wren and demi get new skills sounds similar to SUV's in a way.it will be interesting to see if the landale in psu looks similar to the ps4 version even though the games supposedly take place in alternate universes..

i picked this game up at a garage sale this past weekend for 50 cents lol. all i have to say is wow this game is amazing especially considering how old it is.im currently about to go to the sky castle and its already one of my favorite rpg's. its holds up amazingly well considering its age. i kinda want to import the ps1 remake now too =o

why do people think this game is good....
i picked up phantasy star 4 this past weekend at a garage sale for 50 cents and its almost a 12 year old game and imo it kicks the crap out of DQ8.

the thing about dragon slayer is a pretty lame complaint.it wasnt meant to be used in normal combat. seriously go swing that puppy at the dragon in cave of oblivion(a monster that can 1 shot your guys in chapter 1)and watch what happens.sadly i dont think it works on the guy that drops levantine.

i hate hard rpg's but this may have more to do with my personality since im extremely stubborn(in ff7 i only gave cloud materia that increased his melee abilities) when i encounter something in an rpg that i find hard i very quickly get frustrated wich leads to anger then controllers being thrown at the wall.i also hate it when i have to alter my regular equipment just to beat a boss.

edit:the problem in ff9 is that freya and steiner are some of the most powerful characters. when i beat the game they were both oit damaging garnets summons. and i particularly liked freya because a friend once said i remeinded him of her O_o

i wasnt a fan of the english voices,and even a great localization cant save a horrible game. it felt as if very little has changed since i played the original on nes. often times i felt like i needed to lvl up but i couldnt find any exp hot spots. getting wiped out by regular enemies and frequent trips back to town because your running out of mp fails. but out of curiosity when i quit the game and sold it
Code:
i was at a battle where you fight dhoulmagus and 2 copies of him how close was i too the end?

Actually I'm with you dashrier.  I loved it at first then it got really old, really fast.  Repetitive is the word I think of when I hear Radiata Stories, but that is to be expected since it is a button masher.  The art style is great and I loved recruiting everyone.  But with a cast so huge, character development takes a back seat.  Also I too hated the lack of save points.  The game does get a plus though for being able to see the different weapons and armour equipped.


lol go kick elwen or gerald then let me know how that button mashing works out for you. i personally think radiata stories is like valkyrie profile in that at first the battle system seems simple but theres some depth to it if you spend enough time with it. latter enemies wont just sit there and let you swing at them and will break your guard. plus im sure in most peoples first playthrough they will never get any skills other than luck plus. anyways this thread reminded me how annying people that play rpg's just for story can be at times XD

nice! maybee im just an xbox hater but it looks more interesting to me than both 360 rpgs that were at tgs
2578  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Radiata Stories on: September 27, 2006, 03:15:49 AM
im currently finishing up my third playthrough. i need 1 one more playthrough on each side to recruit every character because i made a mistake on my current non-human game. i'd highly recommend going human path on the first playthrough since human path is like easy mode.

I just remember the combat in PSO having some... vague comboish system where you could time your hits and get up to 3-5 consecutive blows, weapon depending. It was mostly button mashing. Even at relatively low levels it didn't seem either actiony or difficult. Just... slow and easy.

Also, my game collection has 600 odd games going back to 1981. And in general I use save states on pretty much any emulatable game that doesn't have a save anywhere feature or a savepoint every twenty minutes or so (Or in action games, basically after every level). I think Wizardry 1 is the only game with longish dungeons that you can't save in that I play semi0regularly but uhhhh. They're big but you can traverse them quickly if you know where to go.


if you button mash in pso all you will do is keep repeating the first combo hit. you cant combo button mashing. for the record i never did get bored of pso's actual combat.
