You need to play the first game simply because it is awesome.

I've played both Hexyz force and Crimson Gem Saga and thought they were both pretty meh.  I suppose if you're desperate for a traditional JRPG on your PSP (instead of an SRPG or something which there are actually a shit ton of) then neither one is a bad game, but neither title offers much to distinguish it.  Of the two I would probably go with Hexyz Force.

If you like action RPGs then Ys Seven is a much better game.  I would also recommend Crisis Core which is a really fun game despite the weak story full of FF7 references nevermind, you wanted downloadable games.  Half Minute Hero is also awesome but I don't quite know how to classify it.  And as I said, there are a ton of SRPGs.

If you really want a traditional turn-based JRPG then though I haven't had a chance to play it myself yet LoH:TitS looks very promising.

I didn't know what to expect when I first played Yggdra Union but in the end I thoroughly enjoyed it.  It's a quality SRPG that deviates quite a bit from the old Tactics Ogre/FFT formula.  More S than RPG, though, but I'm completely fine with that.

At least in the US, part of the copyright law is that if you have a copyright on something, you HAVE to make people not use it, or you lose the copyright.  So even if you think "well hey, that daycare's not doing us any harm by painting our character on their front wall," you still have to stop them if you want to keep your copyright.  It sucks.

That's only for trademarks.  Has nothing to do with copyright.

I dislike Halo (except 1) and I dislike Call of Duty. I know im branded as a heretic.

Maybe in some circles, but certainly not around these parts.
2691  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Worst RPGS on: March 30, 2011, 03:32:59 PM
I couldn't find myself liking FF13. Too much cinematics and talking, too little of gameplay. And the available gameplay felt so...staged, that I didn't feel like I was playing a game at all. I'm glad I didn't buy it...

So I would assume you dislike the Metal Gear Solid series then?

I dislike the Metal Gear Solid series.  Does that make me some kind of heretic?

I beat it last night after around 30 hours; got Finnel normal ending. It looks like multiple playthroughs are a must given that I didn't even get past Cosmosphere Level 6? And how do you get the happy ending?

You have to put all three heart points in that revytail and complete her cosmosphere.  Completing the cosmosphere should be easy, though, because you get tons of DP late in the game.

"Alongside Estelle is her adopted brother Joshua, a calm and rational fellow who usually stops Estelle from d"

I assume there was more to that sentence...

There were literally hundreds of aftershocks from the big quake, with a number of them much bigger than 5.5.  Just trying to put things in perspective.
2695  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: 8.9 (9.0?) Earthquake hits Japan. on: March 29, 2011, 08:07:14 PM
Japan is an earthquake-prone country.  I doubt they have anything there that would be damaged by a 5.5, because everything they build is done with earthquakes in mind.

You can say it 'sucks' but that's like complaining about rain in Seattle...

And I really hate this attitude towards handhelds on a whole. I've been having a lot more fun with handheld titles as of late and don't see much high end graphics as strictly being necessary. Especially when they threaten to kill the gameplay scope and actually be counterproductive to being "epic", just look at FFXIII and how SE's said HD towns "cost too much".

I realize that handhelds are where the games are these days, but I have to at least partially agree with the anti-handheld sentiment.  Now I don't care at all about HD graphics but I much prefer playing games on a big screen with a quality sound system using a comfortable controller.  Handhelds have tiny screens and are often very uncomfortable to hold for long periods of time.  I find this difference is even more noticeable in lengthy games like RPGs, which makes the fact that all the RPGs have flocked to handhelds even more difficult to accept.

For instance, I love Radiant Historia but I still haven't gotten around to finishing it.  Mainly because it's on a handheld and I just don't enjoy playing handhelds as much.  I'm sure I would have beaten it multiple times by now if it was on a console, even if the graphics were identical.

Under normal circumstances 5.5 wouldn't even be newsworthy.  That's nothing to worry about.

Remember, the richter scale is logarithmic.
2698  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky on: March 29, 2011, 06:10:56 PM
Just thought I should point this out; Stephen Meyerink has said that Trails will be released today. Unfortunately, that's not quite true; Gamestop's date of release is now the 31st, and a number of other store-chains don't have the game either, and won't be getting it until later. Just an FYI.

I have it preordered from Amazon.  It hasn't shipped yet, but it's in the 'prepairing to ship' stage (meaning the order can't be changed or canceled) which doesn't usually happen until very shortly before it ships.  I would expect it to ship by the end of the day.

And why is a PSN download the same price as a umd version? For instance, Tactics Ogre...why would someone pay $40 for a download when you can have the game with manual and box and not to mention a bonus item?

You can pretty much blame this on Sony not wanting to upset their retail partners.  While PSN versions certainly could be cheaper you have companies like Gamestop that are big enough to say things like, "If you undercut our retail prices we won't stock your games at all."  When the majority of sales still come from retail this is a bad position to be in.  It's not just games, either.  Sony had a hard time convincing game retailers to stock the PSP Go at all since they make most of their money from game sales, not hardware.  Though rumour has it that retailers are getting much better margins on the Go (which is part of why it's so expensive...).

Though sometimes there are decent sales on the PSN, but not until well after the game's release.

I preordered this game from the Capcom store a while back so that I could get an adorable Chibiterasu plush with it, but honestly I haven't even cracked the shrinkwrap yet.  Too many games vying for my attention at the moment.
