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.

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.

ok.
I didn't deny that???

Story:
- 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%  .... =/
6461  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Good People Die (animation promo!) on: December 16, 2011, 02:51:48 PM
THere's a used copy of 999 at work ($35 x_X ).... wondering if I should splurge.  :D

I love the title for this game, but I thought the anime opening was worthless.

Really, another sequel? I guess square was  not kidding when they said they were going to whore out Fabula Nova Crystallis

Mm.  You'll never see me complain about a sequel if the game is good.
6463  The Rest / The Bazaar / Re: Dice's Artbooks & Games Super Sale on: December 16, 2011, 01:47:19 PM
Yay!  Stuff is being sold!  I can't believe it!! :D  ♥ ♥ ♥

Keep an eye folks, if there is something you're interested in,
come to me with a price and I'll see what I can do, especially if it is something you may be interested in. :)


Everything must go!?
6464  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: December 16, 2011, 01:34:02 PM
Apparently the ending for FFXIII-2 is really, REALLY bad, and pushes the idea of another sequel...

I just skimmed through the ending.  It explicitly says: To Be Continued. 

*groan*  That was pretty ballsy of them.

More importantly, it BETTER FUCKING COME OUT AFTER VERSUS. >=(
Or they're just gonna cancel it's production.  I'm feeling it now. x(
6465  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Best Star Ocean: TLH combination. on: December 16, 2011, 12:22:50 PM
You need 2 mithrils, plus the weapon from the blacksmith gamgee, sharp edge. Customize it twice with mithril and you got the eternal sphere. Technically you can come across 2 mithril before nede, but you had to do some sidequesting, and pickpocketing. Course, who didn't pickpocket in SO2? Battle suits ftw!

I never understood how to get the battle suits. D:
Then I got upset and went all "Forget it!! *pout pout* I don't need that!  I can win the game without it!!! *pout*".  I know it's tricky though. :P
