Here's a cam of the whole E3 trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YieoURCBSXE

Oh I'm gonna love this.

Thank you, now you made this my most anticipated game ever!
I loved Parasite Eve 1 but hated 2 so much I couldn't even play 2 hours of it but now, I thinking of giving it a go, probably with cheats.

Honestly, I hated the DQ series, found them dated, repetitive, and boring. The only DQ games that I've played and never finished were DQVII, DQVIII, DQII and I for the GB and DQV.

Buuut... After playing DQIX, I'm now looking forward to DQX... But I don't have a Wii so I'll be looking forward to Ninokuni, which is the closest thing to DQ. :P

Also, will be playing DQV after DQIX.

I'm glad to hear this, because I feel the same as you. I finished DQV and VIII and while in some part of them I did enjoy them, in at least the other half I thought it was a drag. I've said to myself that DQIX may be my last take on the Dragon Quest series but seeing that you feel like me towards the series and yet you're liking IX seems like a light of hope to me.
I'm yet to start it, as I'm alternating between Resonance of Fate and Dragon Age.

For famitsu's 40s they are giving like candy these days, I think that those which belong to new IPs or not that much hyped games are for real, the rest, simply bought. For exemple, 428: Fūsa Sareta Shibuya de has no reason to receive a 40 unless they really think it deserved it or even Bayonetta on the 360, sure this one comes from the creator of Devil May Cry but let's be honest, it's a new IP and it's not a spin of of Dragon Quest or Final Fantasy.

As for DQIX, I think I'll start as a Mage, I liked Jessica variety of skills in DQ8, unlike Yangus who had nothing better to do, but at least he hit really good.

I've got the game but haven't started yet because I was trying to finish Strange Journey, but I decided to move on and get started with Dragon Quest IX. So, since only one party member is permanent, anybody has a recommendation so far for which class to pick or it doesn't matter ?
I know you can change it later and even make a party, but never knows when the game forces you to go alone during part of it.

I quote you on that, the dungeons are way to long, they sometimes feel more like a chore.

About chinese food, don't feel bad because japanese people eat a lot of pasta (not in the italian way) and if you're not into sushi or sashimi you could try yakisoba while playing Persona 4 (I can't remember for sure but I think I did eat it sometime while playing P3 or P4, as I used to order it a lot!

I decided today that I'll simply not play Strange Journey anymore, which I found hard to do but felt like I had to. The overall game is good but in every sector we go the higher the floor the more boring it gets, it almost feels like a drag. The maps get so confused and complicated, but most of them are bearable but the parts with invisible paths )where we can't see our way, and now in Sector D we have some walking floors as well. Unless I use a map in gamefaqs or something it would take me forever, oh and I should not forget to mention the invisible doors.

I find it kinda sad because the mood of the game is good, the plot is interesting, and all the bonuses that come along with most SMT games but these shortcomings along with a game where you have to be on your toes to not die, and get lost and not being able to advance ...

Anyone else felt like it while playing ? Maybe I'm in a more streamlined RPG mood, I don't know, I may come back for it, but definitively not soon.

Parasite Eve is one my all time favorite games, so there's no way I'm missing this one. Day one for sure!
But since they said they are changing the gameplay AGAIN, I hope they try a style more like Resident Evil 4 or Uncharted, instead of that crappy that RE1 scheme they did in parasite eve 2.
I hated it back then, the controls of PE2, so I ended up not playing it, but this week I decided to dig it up (one of the few PS1 games I kept after selling my ps1).

My god, these screens look gorgeous, it's just like a Ghibli movie. At first I thought they were anime cutscenes but taking a closer look some shoots do look like they are the game itself.
I wish they would go for a "darker" approach like Spirited Away.

Well, since Atlus announced their support for the 3DS and mentioned their persona franchise, we could hope for the best, Persona 2 (both of them) and hopefully truly remade, with 3D graphics and with a bearable encounter rate.

I wanted to play rorona, but after seeing totori screens just make me want the last one so much more.
I honestly don't get it why they take so much to localize a game, I mean, if anything people in the west, on contrary to a good portion of the east is the we are "graphic whores". Not us, RPG fans, but the usual media , reviewers and all, and taking that long to bring it here just makes it look a little older.

Not that I care, but with it I believe some games don't get the attention they deserve, sometimes even from people that like RPGs, I have myself missed/skipped some good titles because of this stalling.
776  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: June 14, 2010, 10:55:55 AM
I probably should have asked this a while ago but oh well
I've been playing persona 4 a lot recently, and having trouble leveling up margaret's social link
she wants me to make Ippon-Datara with sukukaja and I already did that
each time I try it, she doesn't seem to notice that it's already done
am I missing something that would help me level it up?
it's really frustrating for me

I took it from a FAQ for all the request from people, Marageth and the Fox

Request No.1
Make a Ippon-datara(Hermit) with the Skill Sukukaja

Required Lv 17
Possible Fusions
(Temperance) Sylph(Sukukaja) X (Justice) Archangel
(Death) Ghoul(LV10:Sukukaja) X (Fool) Obariyon

Well, these have to be made from fusions, but I'm not sure if this particular persona can learn Sukukaja from scratch.
I don't know if you're aware, but when fusing personas, if you get out of the screen before accepting and then go back, the skills your new persona will learn will change, so once you know which personas to use, it's quite easy.

Nocturne also had lots of random battles but I think I didn't get tired of them because of the dark mood the game creates, so even if it has less plot time, it helps.
Strange Journey has some issues that I hate the most in Dragon Quest games.

I have to agree with you CDFN , I don't know how much patience I have left for this.
I was never to use cheats in RPG, but some games seems like they ask for it. Not because they are unbeatable of something, far from it, but to be enjoyable.
778  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: June 04, 2010, 06:59:34 AM
I got this App and even though it did help, a lot, there's still a lot of frustration. Also it could have more save points scattered around dungeons. They are already big and we're playing on a portable system.
If I'm not mistaken Persona 2 didn't have these problems, I mean, to this extend but I only playing a little of it, so I can't say for sure.
779  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: June 03, 2010, 11:38:03 PM
Let's hope that in E3 Atlus gives us the confirmation we all want to hear!
I hope it's for PS3 not because of Persona 5 itself, but like the last SMT games on PS2, after the first came a whole bunch of them. So if they make the overall structure of their games they can release many more SMT on the years to come :)

While typing I was thinking back of Strange Journey. Now I recall I kind of gave it a rest and went back to play Professor Layton and the Diabolical Box (so much fun).
Those pain killing random encounters in SJ are killing me and the dungeons only get bigger, more boring and more time consuming. I wish at least there were more plot in between, or maybe smaller dungeons but a bigger number of them (it would make it even but less stressful).
That's probably one of the reasons I gave a rest to Persona 1(PSP).

I'm not to complain much about encounters but they just over do it.

I swear, if I had Nocturne on PSP I would finally beat it. So much better than those two. Anytime I think of it a smile comes to my face.

I gotta agree with you guys, Nocturne still looks amazing, and their new game sure could use it as inspiration.
But even with its "more realistic look", than Persona at least, it has a style (which I'm not complaining, just pointing), and my main point is I do hope they don't try to too much to make them look "real" but end up making them look generic.

For example, Nier while it doesn't look as bad as people say, has some generic looking characters. Much worse could be White Knight Chronicles.

I think I'd rather want some characters looking like Atelier no Totori (from what has been shown so far), which isn't great, but has its own style, than have some cheap generic version of characters that have higher resolution.

Now if they could have characters look as real as FFXIII but a little less "happy", that would be awesome.
But don't take this the wrong way, by FFXIII, which I love those characters in this game, in the next megaten I mean the quality of the characters expressions, they almost feel alive,(like also in mass effect 2).
Quick version: I don't mean the "character design", but the possibilities of the characters expressions.
