Its strange, I think alot of whats said here is very valid, but I never seem to, at least not to myself, think about such things.  Like for instance I got Assassins Creed 2 from Gamefly earlier, and my biggest issue, and the reason im sending it back for something else, is because I hated the whole climbing/jumping control aspect.  It was just that one thing that drove me completely insane.  Same with FFXIII, I just hated the battle system they used, and it really ruined it for me..especially once things got hard (at least for me).  But then you have games like this, where I am completely enjoying myself.  I might find a few of the lines to be a bit cheesy here and there, but overall its nothing like the above examples that affects me.  I ended up keeping Golden Sun since with my coupon and discount I got it for just over 20 bucks, but I think I would have been completely happy paying the full amount for it. 

Yeah, everyone has that game where it works perfectly for them, even though others can come up with a number of complaints. I know I did not like the first Golden Sun, but whenever I explain my reasonings for fans of the game, they can never seem to get it. It was perfect in their eyes. I can't blame them, since most of my problems with it also exist in Breath of Fire and Final Fantasy 4, yet I liked those games for some reason I can't explain. Just hit the right notes I guess.

Now, I haven't played The DS Golden Sun, but it sounds like it would be a bit more enjoyable. It's still sounds too easy, but easy games have a place in my collection, too, I suppose, especially now that Chrono Trigger and M&L: Partners in Time have been beaten.

And speaking of Partners in Time, that's my game where I think it's perfect even though others are always pointing out flaws. I just didn't have any problems with it, it did everything I wanted it to do and more and I enjoyed every second of it.

And I see we both disliked the battle system in Final Fantasy XIII. Interesting.

Sometimes I feel like I play Devil's advocate to a lot of peoples opinions here.... que sera...

Would they seriously not make money by bringing those here?
I know people keep saying Tales sales are abysmal, but given the jRPG state of the PS3... what else is there to play on it. It's like a black hole of cellshaded lighthearted jRPG. (minus the atelier serie)

I personally think the demand would be greater given the current next-gen jRPG situation.... it's a bloody drought.

And I'm happy for you dalucifer0, and sad for your pants.  Get them washed.  Tell us your progress/how it is and all that. =(

Why must you toy with my emotions?

Because I am a toyer of emotions.
Mmmmm, these games are SOOOOOO goood.

Didn't sound right when I re-read it.
I have both...for a price..... MWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA
FFV is particularly awesome.  I'm surprised, no mum and pop stores around ya>?

I have both GBA titles... but also the titles you want to trade. =/

PS: even in the worst case scenario, don't use eBay.

Games I plan on playing from this year

1) Nier (y'all have convinced me)
2) FF13 (split emotions on this have me intrigued)
3) Ys: Oath
4) DQ9
5) Golden Sun

NIer and FF13 -- you mind as well, they're a lot cheaper now.

Golden Sun -- cute and simple.  

This year was kinda crap when I look back.

Top title probably goes to SO4 International and Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep for gameplay.
NieR takes the cake for storyline, theatrics and music.
EDIT: (thanks Kevadu1)  Resonance of Fate for a bit of both of the above!!

I *hate* that naked woman bit... I don't get it!!!!!!!!

I've always preferred Fujishima's designs.

Anyway, looks like there's a shitload of negative sentiment about Xillia not coming over.

On day 2 of being revealed..... it's stupid and ridiculous.  I personally have faith since we haven't had a title in a white, and I think marketing a 15th Annyversary title would work for marketing.
But hey we'll see.  Worst case scenario, I'll watch a Let's Play or learn Japanese in a few months.... .... .....maybe not.

WHat's even SCARIER is the death threats, the "fuck you"s, and the begging for all three PS3 titles on Namco Bandai's Facebook page....

Guy Cecil "Namco, I would really like to play Tales of Graces F, Vesperia PS3, RM3, and Xillia in English. Localize them!" (yes, Guy Cecil is his FB name)

Katie Brandley "When Tales of the Abyss gets released on the 3DS, I hope it gets localized here. D: That would be the ONLY reason I'd buy that thing."

Kelston K. Jacobs "Good morning Namco! I see good things happening for Tales fans. Could it be that you're listening to us?? Well we'll never know for sure until you give an official announcement. So in the meantime I'll just be here saying: localize Tales of Vesperia PS3, Graces F, and Xillia pls?"

And unfortunately, I can't find any of the "FUCK YOU NAMCO" posts,.... I can guess why.

That place is literally LITTERED with all this shit.
And a lot of hopefuls actually THINK they'd localize ToV for PS3 and ToG ..... ToV was done over a year ago, the X360 2 years ago.  Get over it! haha

Some people are all excited with job posts too, they're looking for a localization manager at Banco.  
I'm actually confident if one of these titles will be released, someone is seriously going to jizz like a firehose in their pants.
8604  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nier on: December 16, 2010, 12:40:43 PM
Nier had DLC?

Yeah.  It was tough and contains remixes.  It's 10+ levels of pain.  Kinda confirms the Drakengaard connection though.
8605  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: WoW - Mind Blown, Phenomenal Craziness! on: December 16, 2010, 01:27:14 AM
That is pretty weird and crazy though haha
Coincidences are an amazing sort of magic

This is my favorite Inomata design. Too bad the personality, in true main character fashion, is a whiny douche.


I'm not fond of Inomata's actual "style" either.  I liked Veigue's design, but I wonder how it'd look under someone else's style.
8607  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: December 16, 2010, 12:54:45 AM
The Sophie x Fee - I like Fee, she at least looked Graceful.  Something looked wrong with Sophies outfit.  I blame the grey, the white variations of her outfit are wonderful(er).

Judtih - the think that gets me about her here is she doesn't look like a 19 year old.  Her boobs are at least a 23-25 year old.  Most 19 year olds I know are young and ditzy.  She is more of a lady.  Then again, with most Tales heroes and otherwise...I usually slap on a few years to their age... 16 years old aren't that smart or responsible...or even look like half of them do in Japan-land.

Good Inomata Designs - the're few and far between.  I liked Tales of Innocence... they were probably the most tame bunch and looked appropraite to whatever.
But then you get...

Though they did totally surprise us with 'AbyssEa.'

And the word "the" in it.  Wowie!
