I'm about to begin, finally, the Heavensward content. I hope the plot is as good as people tell it is.
In the regular game the story I enjoyed the most was the Crystak Tower quests. The 2.1 up to 2.55, for me, were kind of a drag for the most part.

I brought the question about what version to choose, by like you all I'd rather get the Special Edition. Decided to go ahead and pre-order mine... Yep, all gone. Fortunately I still have that credit Nintendo gave us when we bought both FE Awakening and SMTIV so at least I won't have to spend real money on the DLC.

With less than two months from the release of the game, assuming not everyone will be getting the special edition, what version of the game will you guys be getting?

I'm planning to get the Special Edition myself but if for whatever reason I can't, I think I'll get the "white cover version". The characters in the black one do seem to interest me more at first glance but given that it's more in line with classical FE games and I still consider myself a beginner in the series, I should be getting the one that plays closer to Awakening.

I never got my hands on the Plus version of Rorona but I'm planning to when there's a discount.
The only thing I didn't like much in Rorona were some characters. I found Lionela to be kind of boring and also that music guy.

Other then the graphics and the battle music I think the original still holds up.

After months playing it I finally finished Mana Khemia on the Vita and I just wrote a review for it on my blog.

I have to say I liked it very much. There were some characters like Muppy which felt thrown in for whatever reason, it just felt like he didn't belong in the game but at least I could use him to make some alchemy items using the board.
Playing on the Vita was a plus comparing to the PSP as the long load times were gone so that was a plus.
Also there are some weeks in the game that not much of anything interesting happened and it was a shame because near the end the story starts to get very intriguing.

Now I'm thinking of playing either Ar Tonelico 2 or Mana Khemia 2. Although for At Tonelico I didn't play the first one so I hope I will be okay.

I like Dragon Quest, but I do hope they eventually ditch some of the archaic elements such as random turn order in battle and endless dialogue/confirmations when shopping and saving.

Many times this. Saving in DQ takes forever.
Also, another thing I'd love for them to get rid of are the convoluted and clunky menus. When they are pleasing on the eyes and well thought out, like VIII it seems it takes forever to go from a screen to the next. For example when you want to move items from the inventory to the characters bag. You can only move one by one and it feels like there's a delay just to piss you off.

I'll get the PS4 version. Now for the announcement, I'm really glad they decided to go multiplat for this title. This will probably please everyone on the fanbase. Japan probably would prefer a portable version of the game, especially there where it appears everyone has a 3DS these days. Here in the west we will finally get a game looking like DQVIII, probably better. (Just saw the trailer, well, it looks many times better)

I have some mixed feelings towards the Dragon Quest series but I'm happy for this announcement.

I guess it's never easy to make a top ten, especially when you are getting close to the tenth position and you feel you left some great candidates out but here's my list:

1.   Final Fantasy VII - My first RPG and it's been hard to beat it.
2.   Persona 4 Golden - Every time I play it I love it more. One day I think it may acquire the number one spot.
3.   Final Fantasy X - The first game that made me lose track of time, I can't say how much fun I've had with this one.
4.   Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic - One of the best games that made me feel I was immersed in the world. Never before I felt like I made a difference as much as this game.
5.   Final Fantasy Tactics - I've lost count how many times I've beat it. Too bad I was never able to fully understand the plot.
6.   Valkyrie Profile 2 - Loved the story and the combat. The visual were fantastic back then.
7.   Mass Effect 2 - As opposed to the first game this has a more character driven story and for me it payed off really well. Not to mention the great setting, scenarios and gameplay.
8.   Baldur’s Gate II: Shadows of Amn - I can believe how many times I played it. Unfortunately I could never beat it. I found a cave full of Beholders and never managed to pass the second one...
9.   Valkyria Chronicles - Fantastic combat, lovely graphic filter and awesome strategy gameplay! Some stages were a little too hard but still it is an amazing game.
10.   Fire Emblem Awakening - I was surprised myself this game made it here to the list. This was my first FE but I can't say how much I loved it.

As much as I hate to admit I guess I'm a huge fan of SRPGs. Even a game that isn't an SRPG per say may have a deep strategy needed and one can see many like these on my list.

Am I the only one that like it? Sure I would never had guessed when they decided to combine Fire Emblem with SMT they would go with something like this but I welcome the change.
It's only a spin off and one we'll hardly see a sequel soon, so I'll just enjoy it.

Personally I welcome this shift in tone, this lighthearted and colorful theme seems like something I will enjoy. If we think about it, it seems like the opposite of Catherine which I liked a lot.

I loved the trailer, full of style. Pretty sad I don't have a Wii U and probably won't for a very long time but at least it's coming.
11  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Atelier Series on: March 24, 2015, 07:03:25 PM
I have interest in getting the game but I've built myself a backlog of Atelier games. I'm close to finishing Mana Khemia and haven't even started Escha & Logy, so once I finish the second one I'll probably get this new one and hopefully by then I'll finally be able to get the plus version on the Vita.

I'm glad Atlus took their time to make this game because from what I've seen so far I'm already loving it!
I loved the character design. Sure it's only 3 but they seem all likable!

Also, loved the scene MC is the the classroom and the teacher throws something at him.
13  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Monster Hunter 4 Early Access on: January 26, 2015, 05:32:24 AM
I sent my two codes to Zshade and Farron :)

Thanks a lot!
14  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Monster Hunter 4 Early Access on: January 25, 2015, 07:49:55 PM
I also would like a code if that is possible.

I've always tried to get into monster hunter. While there's some things that interest me some design choices always left me out but the little I'm seeing from this new one it seems to have some changes that might be for my tastes.

Well, since a bunch of PS2 oldies are coming to PS3 as "PS2 Classics" we can only hope to see them. I don't know if the rights to it should be NISA or TecmoKoei which now own Gust, but whatever the case it seems both of them are releasing their old games for PSN. If niché games like GrimGrimoire and Odin Sphere are being put there (although they are published by Atlus) I still have hope to see some Atelier games.
