I sympathize with the people raged about it being on PSP. Not because of the graphics and all but because they shouldn't expect you to own all consoles and portables of this gen.

I think anybody angry would be just as angry if the game were to be on the Wii or the 360. It's nothing against the system, it's because you have it a system where you played on game and when you want to play the next one you realize you can't play the sequel because you don't own the system.

It's like if you're a Kingdom Hearts fan: PS2, PS2, GBA, mobiles, DS, PSP. How can any fan play all those games ?

I (lucky me) have both a PS3 and PSP but say, if it were to be only on the 360 I wouldn't be able to play because mine died. But if they released on another platform together with the one originally released it would just make a larger market.


I own a PS3, 360, Wii, PSP and high-end PC. But I still want this game to stay exclusive for the PS3. I have my reasons but I don't feel like listing them.

I don't blame you. I actually also have my reasons to want it to be exclusive to the PS3. The main reason would be "make the best you can do and focus on making it better instead of adapting to work on something else with restrains."

God, if this isn't the worst time of the year to break your PSP. With Valkyria Chronicles 2, Persona 3 and Birth by Sleep on the top of my head.

I'm at the beginning of VCII, and I'm enjoying it a lot. The only thing I'm a little sad about is that there are no snipers. Sure, I understand the battle stages are smaller, so a sniper may not do that much of a difference but still.

By what the admin at the Atlus forums said, this will not change the games and all so hopefully we were all worried without reason.

We will probably hear about a persona or trauma center mobile game exclusive to Japan now and then. As long as we keep having our wonderful games I'm at peace.

edit:
Just to add a little thing. Remember when SEGA merged with the big guys from Pachinko ? Not like another game studio like Namco/Bandai or Square/Enix but still Sega has been doing some very good stuff. Bayonetta, Yakuza 3, Madworld, Infinite Space, Valkyria Chronicles 1 & 2.
Sure they make some shovel ware too but some of these help the a lot to pay the bills.

And by the looks, this Atlus thing is just so Index can use Atlus IPs and not interfering with Atlus game developing.

Have anyone seen this ? “Top 10 RPGs of This Generation”
Some gaming site made a list of the best RPGs of this gen and this site I usually go to, Sankaku Complex made a short article on the list.

The funny thing is that they pointed the same thing I thought when I read the list: Where is Persona ? If I were to make a top 2 RPG I would have to put Persona on it.
846  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nier on: August 29, 2010, 11:17:05 PM
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.

The boss recycling in Odin Sphere is because the stories cross between them but I agree, even so, it is recycling bosses.
Even so I loved how the stories felt like unique and the same at the same time. The only one I haven't played was Velvet's story and I was much more hyped for her, since the ones I expected to be bad (Prince that turn into a bunny & Faerie that becomes Faerie queen) were quite good, I assume the witch that lives in the woods will be much better. Someday I'll just pick it up to finish it.

The slowdowns sure were a bad thing but I wouldn't trade them for poorer environments. It's like Shadow of the Colossus, I wouldn't trade framerate for the beauty that exists in the game.

I had some gripes with Mass Effect 1 myself but if anything I think the dialogues were the best part of it. Of all the Bioware games I've played ME was one that impressed me the least (but still miles better than Neverwinter Nights). But putting it in the worst of the decade is kind of an overkill.

About Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter, I think it was fun until I found out your "dragon power or whatever" could never be replenished. This ruined the game for me.
Odin Sphere, I personally loved this game but I can understand why someone would not like it. Way to punishing (I used a gameshark in lots of places), and if you're looking for something more RPGish and you get Odin Sphere which is more action oriented one would surely not like it.
849  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Valkyrie Profile on: August 26, 2010, 11:02:10 AM
Valkyrie Profile are one of my favorites games on PS1 and PS2. Even though I like VP2 more, VP1 is great and there are some nuances that you see on VP2 that would feel nicer if you've seen then on VP1 before.

About buying them, I'd would also go with the PSP version. It's waaaay cheaper than the rare PSX version and both are the same thing except for few movies which I think are better on the PSP.
I recall that after I "Platinumed" Resonance of Fate, a guy on my friend's list offered me to sell it to him. This game along with Valkyrie Profile 1 and 2 are ones I'll be keeping forever.
850  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: BG:Dark Alliance totally kicks ES3:Morrowind's ass on: August 25, 2010, 09:09:36 AM
Morrowind was one of those deals where you really have to play it without expectations, along with a sense of wonder. Now that Oblivion has came out and the face of gaming has changed its hard to appreciate it normally. It's a great game, but definitely more niche these days.

Yeah, I'd imagine if you've already played Oblivion then Morrowind would be nearly impossible to enjoy.

That happened to me and I can't say how sad I was because a friend of mine kept telling me to play Morrowind back in the days as we both were RPG fans and I kept pushing it away until I played Oblivion. When I decided to give it a go, I simply couldn't. It was too ugly and lifeless.

Well, lesson learned. When a friend recommends you an older game, play it before the newer one is released.
851  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The 3rd Birthday on: August 22, 2010, 01:27:36 AM
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.
852  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mass Effect 2 coming to the PS3 on: August 17, 2010, 08:57:43 PM
Interesting. I'm going to buy it just because I like the Mass Effect series that much, but releasing it without the first ME is kind of weird, PS3 owners will miss out on half of the entire story. Ah well, more people will get to experience 2010's Game of the Year, so can't be a bad thing.

Maybe they'll go in the style of Yakuza and put a compilation of the events of the last game. Being this game one of "choices" maybe they could even innovate and let us make the choices IF we watch the video and those choices would be carried over to when we play the game.

I'm particularly not too sad about ME1 not going to ps3. I mean, I played it on PC, it was good but rarely as any other Bioware game, this one I didn't want to play more than once. I loved the story and characters but didn't like the gameplay so much, especially that vehicle we had which was boring as hell, unlike the one in ME2 Overlord which is much nicer.
853  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mass Effect 2 coming to the PS3 on: August 17, 2010, 04:59:37 PM
Wait, there's people who own a PS3, but not a 360? Odd. I can see it the other way around, as the 360 came out first, and was cheaper. Some of you either have some amazing will power, or seriously deep pockets.

I don't get this comment...you're saying that people who don't buy both consoles are the ones with deep pockets?

Personally I have a PS3 and no 360, but I didn't even get the PS3 until it had been out for a couple of years.  There wasn't much on either system that interested me in the first few years.  Not to mention that the PS2 was still going very strong back then.

Right now if I were to get another console it would be a Wii.  But the thing that's limiting me is time, not money.  I have a hard enough time just keeping up with my backlog of PS3 games.  What do I need a whole new system for?



I thought I might be misunderstood.
My thinking is that if you only own a PS3, it means you either:
bought it when it first came out - very expensive(deep pockets)
or
just recently bought it when it went down in price - willpower
I'm actually impressed by those who held out on buying a a new system for so long despite being bombarded with constant news about all the great games for them.
Personally, I got a 360 when it went down to $199. Then I got a PS3 when it dropped last September. Seems the natural progression of things.
Anyway...
ME2



In your reasoning which is not completely wrong have you wondered that there are people that just have preferences for some games on one console over another.

Think about it, even though there are good games on the system, you are not determined  to buy the console until a game you really want on it is released. I for one am I big fan of Metal Gear, so I knew I would buy a PS3, sooner or later but if I didn't have interest in exclusives on the Xbox, even it being cheaper would not be reason enough to buy it. After this game you were waiting for so much, you end up buying other titles but the decision comes on what you can play on one system that you can't on the other.

Not to mention that while a very good video game, the 360 is way too much unreliable. Mine broke 3 times before I gave up on it and all 360s of friends and my cousins, all know in real life broke, which makes up more than 10.
If it were a little better hardware Microsoft would still be making money out of me by paying live, Live Arcade and retail games but instead they just made me stay away until next gen, and since this one will probably take longer to end, they will not see any from me anytime soon.

Anyway, enough with complaining, back to Mass Effect 2.
I wonder if all DLCs released until december will make it to the PS3 version of the game, like Fallout 3 Game of the Year Edition. It would be nice if not only that but some exclusive content already on disc that could also be given on Cerberus Network and Xbox live.

You've got to be kidding me!!!! I'm buying it for sure, day one!
This was by far my favorite game this year. My PC can handle it good, but being able to play it on my new big TV and Home Theater is reason enough for me to buy it one more time.
Not to mention the money I'll save with DLC.
855  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Resonance of Fate Topic on: August 16, 2010, 11:51:53 AM
Well, maybe it could be considered difficult in an RPG kind of way, but considering the battles are more strategic I'd say it is pretty fair in difficulty if you think it's a mix of strategy and RPG.
If you do all missions along the chapters I'd say it rarely is hard, only a few fights get challenging and you can always pay a little to retry then. If I could do that in Demon's Souls without having to play the whole stage again or at least maintaining what I have obtained I would have play it past the first level.


I forgot to mention, I did platinum this game and it is well worth the time and effort.
