16  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Sunrider: First Arrival on: July 21, 2014, 07:27:44 PM
Have anyone else seen this game called Sunrider: First Arrival on Steam ?

Basically it's a Visual novel mixed with Strategy RPG. The scenario is something of a space opera where you are the captain of a spaceship on the run from some tyrants of the galaxy and along the way you recruit new people to your crew and makes choices along the way.

After having played two hours I must admit I'm pretty impressed. The characters I've met, even if stereotypes, are interesting. The music is excellent, I can't stress how much I enjoy it, it really helps setting the mood of the game.
Oh, and the best part, it's completely free, no microtransactions, no catches. From the little I've looked into, it's a successful kickstarter that made this possible.

So, I highly recommend this for both SRPG fans and Visual Novel fans alike. There's even a "Visual Novel" difficulty level for those that just want to enjoy the story, because I heard this game gets really hard on normal.

I really wished they could have released this on the Vita but I'm not complaining, at least they will be releasing it.
At least for me it's an incentive to buy a PS4 and play something on it while waiting for MGS5.

After a lot of waiting I can't believe I'll get to play the game! I'm getting in as a gift from my girlfriend for easter.
It may sound weird but where I live people trade chocolates but since I'm not eating them much these days she wanted to give me a game!

So, before looking for pages and pages posted here, I'd like to ask a simple question: She I keep changing jobs all the time of stick to some? Like always having a white mage.
Also, are there some preferred abilities people seem to agree are must have?

I really like the trailer. It still did not make me understand how it should work but if I am to guess, I'd say it should be something like Valkyria Chronicles which is always a good thing!
20  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Half Minute Hero: The Second Coming on: April 02, 2014, 07:34:07 PM
So, it appears Half Minute Hero: The Second Coming is coming to steam April 4th.

Well, I think I'm not alone as I loved the first game. Which was interesting for me because I was very reluctant at first but then for some reason I decided to give it a try and I loved it, so I'm really happy the second is coming out, even if out of the blue, with no announcements that I've heard of and in such short notice.

Anyone else looking forward to it? (This is no late Aprils Fool joke, Marvelous even joked about the price of 999,999)
21  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Atelier Series on: March 27, 2014, 07:39:30 PM
From the opinions here I'm somewhat happy for the change Escha & Logy took as even though I did like Ayesha of the 4 games I played it was the one that left me the worst impression (although not a bad one).
I can't exactly point to what bothered me but perhaps it were some characters that were just uninteresting to me. I also for some reason couldn't trigger some story scenes until very close to the time limit so when I managed to do it, I had very little time to do extra stuff and I kind of rushed the end.

I'm having some high expectations from Escha & Logy. I think that just by having my preferred audio choice will make it a much more experience for me.
Oh, and for those who are playing the game, does the gameplay and story change significant between playing as Escha and Logy?
22  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atelier Project 16 Announced on: March 17, 2014, 05:48:55 PM
I also wouldn't be surprised for another Vita version of the prior game.
Seems like it's the plan that every game gets a 'plus' version.

That's the one sad thing for me about the Atelier franchise. Why not a simultaneous release? Giving the relaxing nature of Atelier games I'd love to have them on the Vita but I'm not too happy about buying the same game twice unless it's a for a huge discount.

About the new Atelier design, I loved it! I like the new protagonist has a "normal" look, for a change.
I still haven't got Eischa & Loggy because my backlog is still big like mentioned, but once I beat one of my JRPGs I'll make this a priority.
23  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: February 25, 2014, 04:44:14 PM
I'm glad we're getting it. Being Sega a little inconsistent to bring some of their stuff I could say I had no worries about P5 but I was a little worried about Persona Q and Dancing all night.

By the way anyone, do you know if Sega is letting Atlus work by itself?
I mean, Atlus USA seems to be doing their business as usual, right? Still having their liberties to publish some games here and there, being those games Atlus's games or not.

I got to year 3 month 8. I think have done so many optional sttof that I wasted to much time an d for some reason I can't manage to go to the right places to trigger the story to move on.

Even looking around it seems I got all the wrong flowers in favor of mandatory ones.
I fear the bad ending is coming and I'm not sure if I'll have time to pick back in a long time.

Edit: So I managed to beat it in time! I had a really good time with it!
So I wrote a small review of it on my blog if anyone wants to check it out. It pretty much sums up my impressions with the 4 games of the series I played but focusing on Ayesha.
The only sad thing about the atelier series I forgot to mention is like Cyril said, they are meant to be replayed but I'm not much into replaying games after I've just beat them. At best I would give the game a few months to go back to them.
25  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atelier Ayesha on: February 22, 2014, 10:29:42 AM
I thought the game ended on year 3, sorry, my mistake.
I just hot access to the desert and before looking it up now and you guys mentioning I didn't know I had to collect some flowers to get a better ending.
I don't plan on getting everything anymore, especially on my first run, but I did want to see at least a "normal" ending. The ending most people would get without looking a guide or something.

I kind of feel bad because I liked the game but for some reason I got really confused in the alchemy system in this game as compared to the previous ones.
Rorona was my first atelier game but by the time I hit Meruru I was pretty comfortable with it. When I got Ayesha it seemed like I was back to square one. On one hand I see it as a good thing so it doesn't get stale but the other hand I kind wished I could've gotten used to it faster.

So, Atelier Escha & Loggy will be released next month. With that in mind I decided to go back to Ayesha. For some reason I ended up not finishing it.
While I do like the game for me the previous two atelier games were better.

So, I'd like to ask something for those who have finished and have some memory of the story. I'm at the part where I just got access to Hornheim, together with the balloons and the Homunculus Village. Anyone remembers if I'm far from the end? That's because I only have one year left.
Also, I didn't trigger a scene or anything special going there, I wonder if I missed something...

Based on the gameplay video it seems it'll have as much comedy as the regular show has. As for gameplay itself I like that the combat is turn based, I just hope the game doesn't end up being too streamlined and you have some freedom to explore and level up.
I gotta say, I was skeptical about it but now I'm actually thinking of picking it up.
28  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Tearaway on: February 18, 2014, 09:10:54 AM
So guys, I wrote a review for the game on my blog if anyone would like to check it out.
Overall I liked the quite quite a bit! I would not say it's amazing as some sites claim it to be but at the price I got it ($20) I think it was well worth the price of admission.
29  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc on: February 11, 2014, 08:09:04 PM
So, for those that know nothing about this, it's a visual novel, which has already been adapter to an anime show and now we get a game for the PS Vita.
I'm not even sure if this Vita version is the same as the PSP version that was released in Japan.

Regardless, this game seems to be getting great reviews all across the board, even here on RPGFan.

So, is anyone interested in it ?
I know I am, after playing 999, Zero Escape, Corpse Party and Song of Saya I've been much more receptive to Visual Novels. Not that I ever had anything against them I just think playing them with a portable device to be way more comfortable.

So, anyone have any impressions on it?
I'm personally planning to get it as soon as I clear a few games on my backlog.

I just decided to try the demo since I had to create a NNID to download the free Zelda game.
So far I'm liking quite a bit! I'm just a bit confused about the friends list. I though it was going to load up our friends we already have or does this NNID changes everything from the old Friend Code days?
I never took my 3DS online capabilities seriously, not even with Pokemon but now that I can get bonus on a game I will probably like for real I'm kind of interested.
So, anyone knows how this works?
