P4 fixed a bunch of things storywise too ;)

P3 does deserve credit for innovation, but I can't help but feel that P4 is a much better game in every way.  Improved mechanics, tighter story, better characters, better pacing, etc.  At times P3 really felt like they just stuck a bunch of anime cliches in a blender.

But there is no way P5 will be "the same game with re-tweaked mechanics and presentation" after all this time.  P4 was like that because it game out so soon after P3 and was clearly re-using a lot of assets.  Whatever P5 turns out to be I think we can all agree that it's probably not going to be a PS2 game...though PSP is probably possible.

Fully remastered and re-developed? I find it hard to believe that they went through so much trouble. If 2 ends up being a good game and 1 has been significantly improved this would be one hell of a package.

Believe it.  Same was true for the Japanese version and that's been out for a while.

Though the Japanese version actually required you to play through WKC1 before you could take on the WKC2 story unless you had a clear data save.  They are making that optional for the western release.

I'm in the middle of chapter 2 and haven't felt that way at all, Aeolus.  I've just been playing normally and haven't lost a single battle.  The game seems pretty easy, really.  I haven't felt the need to do anything to 'break' it.  I tend to keep my S-Breaks in reserve but then end up not using them at all.  I did run from one fight early on but it was a monster-in-a-box that I wasn't expecting and clearly wasn't prepared for.

And the game seems to actively discourage grinding since if your level gets too high for the enemies you're fighting they barely give you any rewards.

I love Xenodurr.  Been a long time since it updated, though...

I don't know about you, but my biggest complaint about S-E is how bad their last few original projects have been.  Heck, at this rate I would probably like them more if they did nothing but remakes of their old classics.

Atlus doesn't have that problem.

Oh stop complaining when companies give people what they want.

I also find it really ironic how the Top 5 Main FF's are my Top 5, just rearranged a bit. :D

How is that in any way ironic?

Come on, one of the forms makes no logical sense at all.  "I couldn't care less" means you care so little that it's not possible for you to care any less.  "I could care less" means...what?  It might mean that you care a lot.  It's not really saying anything.
2649  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky on: April 07, 2011, 09:22:52 PM
I thought both "I could" and "couldn't" care less meant essentially the same thing: a lack of care, whichever way you read it.

No, one of them is correct and the other is an annoyingly common mistake.  Still, a lot of people make that mistake and language evolves, blah blah blah...personally I will fight it till the day I die.  But I'm the kind of person who insists on proper spelling, grammar, punctuation, and capitalization even in text messages.

I honestly didn't really like the first game and I was all set to ignore the sequel, but from what I've been reading they are making a serious effort to address a lot of my complaints.

Still, 2011 is so packed with good games that I'll take a wait and see approach this time around.

I'd give myself stock tips.
2652  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: If you could show any game to a younger "You" .... on: April 06, 2011, 08:15:37 PM
Most of my favorite games are 'old'.  I wouldn't want to ruin my childhood gaming memories by exposing myself to the flashy but shallow crap they make today ;)

A PS2 game actually charted and at nš 6 no less, it's called Amagami, no idea what the hell that is but it's really impressive, it's actually higher on the chart than any 3DS game.

It's a dating sim.  I have no idea why it's on the charts now, though.  It's not a new game.

Valkyria Chronicles is probably my all-time favorite PS3 game, but we're drifting further and futher away from the whole make-your-character-and/or-party thing.

These guys aren't hackers, they're script kiddies.  Calling them 'hackers' is giving them way too much respect.
