Just to report back, in case anyone is interested. :)

Bought the game today and played it with my gf tonight. We both enjoyed it! She isn't into stat/gear very much, which I anticipated, but still had a good time. Looks like this'll be a regular one for us. Thanks all!

Thanks for the run-down, Mike!

I assume there's some way you can respec later?

Hmm... I trust your opinion, Rob! My gf will probably need assistance with her equipment and skills anyway, so it may not make a huge difference.

Oh whaaat. That is an incredibly dumb design decision. Maybe I should rethink this.

I don't think it's gory at all.  No language, and the story's not intelligent enough to have themes. :)

Here's a video with lots of gameplay footage from PS4.  Skip around, see some stuff, basically ignore the guy talking.

Huh. That looks significantly less gory than some images I saw. Maybe it's lessened when in motion/not focused on. Not sure how keen she'll be on the massive blood splatter some enemies left on death, but I guess we'll see! I'll enjoy it on my own if it doesn't work for us for co-op, haha.

Thanks guys!

Oh, also, P3/4 has local split-screen, right?

Quick question for D3 players, because I haven't bought this yet and definitely want to.

What is it like in terms of violence/language/themes etc.? I've been considering getting it on PS3/4 to play with my girlfriend (she's not a gamer, but we've played various things co-op before), but if it's particularly violent/shocking then I'd just play it on my own. A bit of violence is fine, and I'm assuming the top-down viewpoint also lessens the impact, but any advice?

Chrono Cross is vastly superior to Chrono Trigger.  I  have no idea why people love the first one so much save for nostalgia.

Thank you. I haven't played Cross (didn't come out here), but I agree whole-heartedly about Trigger.

A comprehensive look and appreciate form Indian professors to the land down under.

As RPGFan's resident Australian, I thoroughly enjoyed this video. I hadn't heard of about 1/3 of the "slang" they used though, haha.

For what its worth, I thoroughly enjoyed reading it.

Thank you very much. :)

And yeah, I wrote it... hmm... maybe 4 months ago or so.

If you showed most of the games on this topic to someone who has never played an RPG before I'm pretty sure they'd hate/be confused by almost all of them, especially if they're not a gamer either. This topic is archaic game design 101.

My first JRPG does not equal best JRPG for newbies.

Edit: That said, if you're giving them to little kids who have the sort of time we did when we first played most of these games then you'd probably do better than with adults.
12  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A rant OR what bugs me about Nintendo on: July 29, 2015, 10:22:18 PM
If there is one thing Nintendo has taught me in recent years, it's don't buy their consoles on launch.

I think that's part of why the WiiU failed to whatever extent. :P


Which was mostly Nintendo's fault for not actually clearly telling anyone what the WiiU was. I'm a gamer and it even took me a couple months after it was announced to find someone definitively saying it was a new console and not a Wii peripheral.

Not to mention that I regretted buying my Wii on launch because I ended up with only a handful of games for it. Or, as much as I love my 3DS, miss a $100 price drop and multiple awesome limited edition versions/XL/New3DS (the second which I should have at least seen coming) - I feel like Nintendo just kept rubbing it in my face that I bought it on launch.

Ar nosurge seems to be a visual novel that occasionally pretends to also be an RPG.
15  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: July 20, 2015, 07:19:52 PM
Okay, so one of the things I'm not liking about Ar nosurge is the battle grades. But this is a problem I have with any game ever. I just don't like being "graded" on my performance when I'm just trying to have some fun. It's extra frustrating in a game like Ar nosurge that does a poor job of explaining the battle system and completely fails at explaining how the grading works and how to improve your grade.

I'm playing the 'Plus' version of this now for review. I can't even figure out how the system grades you. I have received a 'B' for literally every single battle so far. :P
