I'm in the NO wagon. Even though the game on PSP is not that bad, I really wanted it on the PS3. VP1 is so much better.
And come on, SEGA is refusing to rehash the same game ? As if no one does that and people still buy it and they say it as if the first one wasn't great in the first place. They just needed to put a new story and new stages and we'd all buy it with smiles on our faces.

I like the art style but the narration should stop at some point. It actually reminds me of that episode of Family Guy where Peter hires a guy to narrate everything he does in a singing voice.

Another con for me is this linear dungeon hack and slash because hack and slashing gets old quickly, so if there's nothing else to do, well, the fun goes away quickly.

Honestly I think that some trophies can ruin a game. Just enjoy the game and don't turn a fun experience into torture. My 2 cents.

I couldn't agree more.
Some trophies are a good incentive to keep playing a little longer. For example, in FFXIII the one when you get a 5 star rating on the last boss, I liked. It could have one like these in most kind of games, to own the last boss. An example of a bad one I did in Resonance of Fate, was to do all missions in the battle arena. Doing all of them is alright but the said thing is that to try the next level you have to do the same one 3 times, and to get the trophy you need to beat each 10 times and there are 50 missions, so 500 battles. The sole reason I did this was because I had already done everything else in the game, so to not Platinum it would feel like a waste as it wasn't difficult just boring and time consuming.

Most game I get these days I read the trophy list on gamefaqs or somewhere else, go for what it fun and the rest I just don't care.

I'm suspecting that this entry will be my least favorite of the series but thats not saying thats a bad thing. 

For me it's almost impossible for it to be worst then PE2. I hated it so much ...
The worst thing is that it wasn't only hate but disappointment too so it's that thing that is kinda hard to swallow.

I agree, there is no problem with fanservice as long as it is not over used.
If we think about it Crisis Core is a huge fanservice. Does it work ? Yes! Does it break any aspect of the game, no. It's not as if square is saying Aya will be using bikinis, it's just some tear on her clothes, much less then Goku in Dragon Ball.

Back to the game, I just it delivers. Whatever it tries to be, be it survivor horror, 3rd person action or RPG, I just want a good story and gameplay.

Quote from: Siliconera
The 3rd Birthday, however, is not a role playing game. Square Enix made a straight third person shooter with a body snatching system.

I had originally heard this wasn't going to be an RPG... but the "EXP + 100" when defeating enemies suggests some sort of leveling.

Or Square could just be fooling us with another weapon upgrade system.

If we think of Mass Effect 2, even though it's a shooter at some aspects it is still an RPG. Sure, a shallow RPG we it comes to customizing but a great one when it comes at characters interaction and feeling drawn into the world.
If PE3 can pull something like that off, I'm happy.

Holy Hot Damn!
This is looking great, specially on the PSP. The thing that got me thinking is how we'll be able to use spells if the quick link there are only weapons... Well, I'm sure they'll find a way.
758  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The 3rd Birthday on: August 06, 2010, 01:39:50 AM
Thanks heavens!
They released a "remake" of a horrible old game I can't even remember the name, some no one cares about, even in the japanese store but when we talk about the good games they keep us waiting. If they release Parasite Eve and Vagrant Story, I'll even promise to buy Bushido Blade, just for nostalgia (if this one ever gets a chance).

Now for real, don't you think would be nice if these PSOne Classics had trophies, or leaderboards (depending on the game, of course). I mean, not that it would stop me from playing a good game but if I already have a game or at least have already played it, I'd need a little more incentive to play a "decent" game again. If we take the trophy hunters into account, it could even boost sales. Sure, no one would buy Tomb Raider for the trophies because that game is impossible, but a lot of people would be proud to show of 100% completion on their favorite RPGs.
759  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: July 31, 2010, 09:37:19 PM
I was gonna post the same thing! lol
Anyway, I'm glad they are 'working on it" but given the time that has already passed, I think they should "work on in a lot faster". Oh, I think I know why they're taking so long, they're waiting for another RPGs to come and release it at the same time so no one buys their games, maybe they're waiting for Mass Effect 3, Final Fantasy IXV, Dragon Age 2 or Fallout New Vegas, you know, some small title like these crappy games no one cares about. [/sarcasm]

Seriously now, when we have news of the new Tales for the PS3, if nor Vesperia nor Graces comes, people won't even care anymore, I know I won't. With Tales games from now on I'll have the same politics I have with Gran Turismo: I'll believe it when I see it.

has tri-ace decided to break up with squeenix?
it did end of eternity with sega and now this with atlus
hm.

I sure hope not because I still want my Valkyrie Profile 3.

... One that sounds much more promising than Radiata Stories at that simply because of the MegaTen staff.

I couldn't agree more!
It's incredible that Atlus being a small publisher can manage to make much more good stuff (quantity and quality) then bigger RPGs companies like SquareEnix and NamcoBandai
761  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Radiant Historia on: July 28, 2010, 07:49:07 PM
I think the name chosen to be a little weird. I'll try to explain why, Story has the same meaning as Historia (in portuguese at least it means the same thing).
I'm not complaining on the meaning of the title, since it probably means almost the same as the former, but giving a name to something with two words of different languages, especially when the pronunciation of the vowels are pretty different makes it sound really strange.

Sure I'm nit picking on it but still. Well, I won't stop me from giving it a chance, but not only in this thread but overall I've heard so many mixed opinions on Radiata Stories that I'll wait to see more.
762  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: July 28, 2010, 10:04:27 AM
Very nice! I at least hope that this time Bandai Namco publishes them here. I'd like to know what they're scared of, I mean Atlus publishes a lot of games and much sell less than any Tales.
Let's hope Graces looks at least as good as Vesperia since it's a port of a Wii game.
Now I wonder if they're going to re-do evrything, from characters models, towns, spells effects, etc wouldn't it be easier to make a new game ? Well, at least they already have voice acting, soundtrack and plot (and as a bonus for me, the theme song is performed by BoA).
763  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The 3rd Birthday on: July 26, 2010, 09:43:36 AM
Just made my day!
I hope this game comes big so they revive the franchise for good! Maybe next they'll bring Vagrant Story!

edit
I just went in the site to see other stuff about the game and when the opening music remade played I felt like a child all over again. The first one is so good and I hope this one will be so much better!
764  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Demon's Souls on: July 24, 2010, 03:28:22 PM
I do understand a lot of people liked it because it is hard but somehow I feel pushed away because of that. I beat the 1st boss and only died once, but I could already feel the difficulty of the game (plus I've seen lots of videos of gameplay). In the end I don't feel like punishing myself so much with this difficulty, and bear in mind I did beat Ninja Gaiden 1 and Devil May Cry 3, some pretty tough games but I don't know, I probably want a rest from these really hard games for a while, at least give me a checkpoint :)

If in Demon's Souls 2 we have an "easy newb mode" where we can have a few checkpoints, at least 1 in the middle of the stage and another before the boss you can count me in.
I think this would definitively increase sales and for the sake of challenge, don't give trophies for those who beat of "puppy mode". Sure I liked trophies but I'd much rather have a good time with a game without being frustrated every now and then and have no trophies at all.
765  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The 3rd Birthday on: July 22, 2010, 03:46:57 PM
Im exited too, ive only played the second game but i think it was awesome maybe because i like resident evil too.

Im glad they revived this

Funny thing you mentioned this. I a big fan of Resident Evil, I've finished all the numbered ones and code veronica and yet somehow I hated Parasite Eve 2 style that tries to be like Resident Evil but it's not quite there. I think PE2 turned out to be even more clunky than RE 1, 2 and 3.
That makes me sad as I've heard there's a great story there hidden beneath some bad gameplay. At least now the game looks like RE4, in my opinion the best.

I was trying to give PE2 a second chance but I think I'll just watch it on youtube and be happy with it.
