Nier and FFXIII-2 have saved an otherwise unimpressive RPG generation for me. The fact that the Shadow Hearts team is no more really soured any potential this gen had.

Would you vouch for FFXIII-2 being a good game to someone who disliked FFXIII?

Actually, unanimous reaction seems to be in favor of that.  Not that FF13-1 set a high bar in anything other than graphics.

Sidekick + Demension Door fucked up Sphere 221 (or whatever digits).

My brother wrote me a rock song.  Well, he wrote me a rock song written in a melody of how I hear rock song.  It's horrible sounding, with double kick, lots of the same note, and an occasional flute.... and amazing all for it. x)

That last one is awesome Dice.

I have a Alpha Protocol shirt my friend gave me. It has a blueprint drawing of a gun on the front with all sorts of attachments like silencers or magazines on them that say shit like +1 "whatever" I wear that one to the gym or the bed or the couch.

I have a threadless t-shirt:

But I got it in "medium" but it came in "hipster medium" which means small.

I threw it away I think

That Chozoglyph shirt is beyond awesome.  It's creative and beautifully coloured.  It's a nice site too, great stuff.  But sometimes their stuff "avoids copyright" too much and the references work only on fans essentially.  Some of the stuff has the "American ugly" cartoon style to make it a bit more swanky (again, probably to avoid copyright).

I'm an American Eagle small and an Aeropostale Medium or even Large (!!) sometimes.  wtf.
I hate the lack of standardization in clothes.
My dad got me a hoodie from Penn State... I said to get me a Medium because I wanted that "I'm studying comfort" and didn't want it to be tight... that stupid thing fits like an adult t-shirt on a child.

Is there one Enix game where magic doesn't suck endgame compared to physical?

Valk Pro a bit, I guess.  But for the most part...

Another thing I loved is seeing Moogle by your side all the time saying "kupo" at the end of every sentence.

I'd say I like that except for how "Japanese" that is. x(
Fucking Vesperia.... nanoja.....nanoja... NANOJA... NANOJA NANOJANANOJA. Dicey KICK!

Also, I don't like how the Moogle looks like it got transplanted from a cartoon, leave it to Japanese where even in something that looks like non-anime models to get a "cute thing".  I would have loved to see another take on the moogle to look somewhat real.  Ah well.. it's a cutie anyhow I guess.

The two battle suits I'm guessing you're thinking of aren't worth the trouble. They require recruiting Ernest and seeing a Private Action that will put you back on the ship so you can go rob those two dudes with the battle suits. I did get them on one playthrough, but I ended up not finishing that playthrough. I forget why. I did something irreversibly game breaking I think. In any case, I had a better time just getting Opera without Ernest.

Also, who WOULDN'T get Bowman. Dude was all like "POISON PILL!" and shit. And it sure beat the hell out of Precis' annoying high pitched voice. Though she is pretty awesome as well. I think this is why Star Ocean 2 is so great. Outside of maybe Noel and Ernest, all the characters have good enough pros to warrant playing through the game a few times to try them all out.

And yes, it's got a hell of a lot of charm.

Charm works... well, like a goddamn charm for it's amount of charm.  And I'll always love it for that.
S'cuse me for the bitching, but man it makes me shake my head.

I find any Magic user in those types of games are pretty useless.  Especially by the end... Celine/Leon can only one-hit for 9999 and in the time it takes to cast, melee fighters have already done ten-times as much.  Rena was awesome, but I've heard a lot sub her healing for Opera's Healing Star doing amazingly well at max proficiency.

I own these two:

I love 'em... but bein' all girly, I usually only wear these to bed.  I have a Kirby shirt and a Zelda one (just the triforce-eagle thing).

Who cares.  He listed pretty much every jRPG out and coming...

Can somebody who disagrees with me actually respond to what I wrote?  I feel like a lot of people are just throwing up their hands saying there are no good console JRPGs without actually looking.  I just listed 6 quality console titles that out to all be out in 2012: Tales of Graces f, Atelier Meruru, Xenoblade Chronicles, FFXIII-2 (though admittedly I'm still a little skeptical on that one), Ni no Kuni, and The Last Story.

I disagreed, and while I'm not exactly dead serious about the subject, with a tendency to somewhat inflate the issue beyond its actual scale, there is one thing worth pointing out about your argument:
Because most of the "good jRPGs" you named aren't even out yet, any one of them may very well turn out to be a dud. There's a big gap between "promising" and "good".

?!  The original question was about upcoming JRPGs, so I answered with upcoming JRPGs...now I get criticized for naming games that aren't out yet.

That's it, I quit...

Given the drought, I don't blame you.

It's better to have just started this thread, there may've been a megathread but a quick search yielded a ToV thread from 2008 that didn't even go for very long. Best to let it lie.

I may get around to finishing this someday, I'm sorta lost plot-wise but I can just read the summaries again.

Allow me:  It's a Tales game...You're not missing much.

I thought it was the best PS360 Jrpg.  Probably not much of a feat considering you can probably count the number of jrpgs released in the US on the ps360 on one hand.

I didn't deny that???

- Lets write a good story and let people see it from 2 different angle.
The entire first half of the game (ie; Expel) was technically and completely unnecessary seeing as how... it gets blown up anyways, and your efforts literally get destroyed.  The second half is ACTUALLY about the plot.

This is a preference, at least I think so.  I have no problem with Jrpgs that just fuck around for the start because characters are still getting developed at least.  I liked how Lunar Silver Star Story had a couple smaller quests before starting the main story.

It's more than that annoying me. 

They DO develop a sort of myth behind Expel around demons and monsters.  But with "Expel's fate" it doesn't matter.  Remember the first, maybe, third of the game is dedicated to getting those ancient writing from Cross Cave analyzed?  WELL... sure you find the fuck to translate them, after one tedious fetch quest to appease Bowman to introduce you to the linguist... but there was no resolution to what those writings meant.  Oh wait.  There is.... when the developers remembered it last minute in Bowman's fucking ending. 

Linguist-ass: "These docs talk of a paradise"
Bowman: "It must have been Nede"

OOOOOHHHH... not that it matters anymore when Nede meet's IT'S fate and Expel comes back.  Furthermore, not like this plot point can every be resolved unless you took Bowman

Like I said.  Is it good writing?  No.  It's charming.

Aw fuck it.  I give up, I'm through trying to argue this kaka.  I'm no nerd!!!!

I hate people commenting to that effect already though.  WORST ENDEING EVARRR....! D,:
Who cares.  A good game is all I need.  Most game endings tend to disappoint.

Didn't they say that FFXIII-2 had multiple endings?

I *think* what it does is open certain game parts (perhaps ending-like, on just "conclusions").  Not necessarily a new ending.  Like I said... it explicitly says, before credits roll, To Be Continued.

Everybody who I've heard played 999 says it's amazing.  $35's a little steep for a used copy... but maybe if you get an employee discount?

Funployee Discount = 15%  .... =/
