Depends what you like, I guess.  Crest is smaller scale and very character-focused.  It's pretty much just setting the stage for the events that follow.  Banner goes larger scale, more politicy, and is much more of a war story.  Personally I love that sort of stuff, but I also know people who hate Banner because they claim it's all people staring at radar screens and counting backwards from 10 (admittedly there's a lot of that).

Did anyone say Front Mission Evolved was going to be awesome?  I kind of got the impression that even the developers weren't excited about it...

Agent D., I would have more respect for your position if you had an argument that ran any deeper than, "I hate this game 'cause it's stupid."  As it stands you have failed to explain why any of the things you object to are actually bad things, rather than just being your personal preference.  If you were simply stating that you didn't like the style and it wasn't for you then that would be that, but instead you insist that the game is a "piece of shit" and persist in insulting people who enjoy it all the while failing to muster a single coherent criticism of the game.

So yeah, fuck you.

Also, you can own one too for the low, low price of roughly 1.3 million yen.

I would seriously consider buying one if it was only 1.3 million yen.  That's a friggin bargain.

But no, it's 1.3 million dollars.  Slight difference...

It's an iOS port!  Um...yay...

It's clearly RLISH.

Wait, people thought this game was high caliber?  It's from Imageepoch.

Alisha, I've gotten every ending in the game and from what I recall every single P4 character's ending (including Yu and Yousuke) talks about
reforming the investigation team and going after the entity that took control of Labrys.
 It's not something subtle that you can miss.  I feel like you're just willfully ignoring it.

ADMIN EDIT: Spoiler editing (or so I'd assume).

My biggest beef with FFXIII's battle system is the lack of options.  There's no depth.  The idea of abstracting control with the paradigm system was interesting but at the end of the day you only had 6 paradigms to choice from so there weren't actually many choices to make.  Every single battle could be won with the same strategy.  And I mean every single battle.  First buff/debuff, then focus on damage with some healing thrown in, and once the enemy is staggered go all with damage.  There, I just described every single battle in the entire friggin game.

Oh, and then there's the stagger system itself.  It's a fine idea, but in order to have it actually be important in regular battles they had to give even regular enemies tons of hit points (otherwise you could just kill them normally), which meant that even normal encounters could drag on and on and on.  And that's without necessarily being any more difficult, just time consuming.  How does anyone play this game without becoming bored to tears?

The official Tokitowa website actually does refer to the prince explicitly as the protagonist, but every piece of media we've seen of the game seems to contradict that.

Also, anyone else notice that the dragon thingy Draeke (not a typo, that's how they spell it!*) actually talks?  That was news to me in this batch of screenshots.

Edit: OK, I looked at the website again and now it says "Drake".  I swear to go it used to say "Draeke"!  I'm not lying...

It's impossible to have too many recommendations for Trails in the Sky so I might as well add mine.  Just keep in mind that it does start a little slow, but give it time and you'll be rewarded.

Yup, Black Isle in name only.  And given Interplay's financial state can they even afford to hire good people?

WTF, she's supposed to look asian?  Ridiculous controversy aside, how on earth is that woman asian?

If the Yakuza games don't get placed in the RPG forum then there is no way this should.

You kind of make me want to play the game now just to see how bad it is...
