Tales games, in my opinion, can still be relatively fun in Japanese because the combat is so fun, so that gives Tales of Rebirth, Tales of Destiny 2, Tales of Destiny Remake, Tales of Phantasia X and PS3 Tales of Vesperia and probably more as possible purchases, but you'll need a story guide to understand them.

As someone who frequently imports JP Tales games I was highly advise against it for someone who doesn't know any of the language. I agree the combat is fun but would you really want to wade through hours and hours of text you can't understand for it? I don't think so. Playing them with a guide would help, but it's not really an ideal experience if you have to sit with the guide the entire time you play.

Speaking as someone who does import JP RPGs, if you don't speak a word of Japanese then they're all going to be inaccessible to you. The RPGs are probably the hardest genre to understand without knowledge of the language.

I would recommend to you a game called Jump Ultimate Stars. It's a 2D fighting game similar to Super Smash Bros. It is tons of fun, one of the best games I've played on DS, and is pretty import friendly.

Just thought I'd break some of this down to show the other perspective...

Why has there been no sort of visual improvement to the original races yet?

This one, I don't know. I'd assume it's a low priority thing. I know some of the developers have expressed interest in doing it in the future.

Why is there still no form of housing in the game?

Too impractical. Where would you git everyone's house? Or even just houses for guilds?

Why can't you name warlock pets?

This is intentional. The concept is you are just summoning and forming a contract with an already living, intelligent being. It has it's own name.

Why can't you change the color or at least choose the model of pets?

You can tame the colour you want. There are generally 2-3 per pet available.

Why are most mounts and armors simple re-colorings of old armors and mounts?

This is a fair complaint. But has gotten a LOT better with Cata and the most recent patch.

Why is there such limited music in the game?

Can't comment. I turn my down to hear in voice chat or play my own music. But I hear this is also better with Cata.

No dyes? No new hairstyles?

There are new hairstyles. But they can only be accessed from the barbershop. There is no real need for dyes. There are enough available colours.


But I do understand where you're coming from.

Maybe. But they still bubble and run. :P

I can do that too. :)

Just bought my copy today. I've only played about 2 hours, but it's not really grabbing me yet. Not a big fan of the level design so far. But I'll play for longer and give it more of a chance.

Glad to see you getting into RPGs!

Just be prepared, a couple of posts back when you listed the RPGs you'll probably get... that is years worth of gaming right there. Heck, I have a backlog of RPGs nearly a mile high and I've been playing them heavily for the past eight or so years!

Thanks Az. Sounds like they're both worth taking a look at.

I can relate. I get that pretty often as well, though my understanding is that most Westerners find Asians to generally look a lot younger than they are.

Oh, that reminds me of a funny story.

I was checking ID one day at work for this Asian woman. I wasn't paying a lot of attention, but I glanced at her quickly and thought she looked under 20 so I asked for ID. She looked surprised, showed me the ID and she was 37...

Honestly, that is difficult though.

When I read reviews from others I tend to be the game in a significantly shorter time than it took them. But then if I get obsessed with something and go off doing every side quest, it's hard to estimate how long it would take to just beat the game. You can do it, but it won't be all that accurate.

That's why I, at least, tend to just mention it somewhere within the body of my review.

I took a walk to my local bookstore the other day and saw they had a HUGE section of re-released classics, and older fiction at very cheap prices. Having only read a couple that were in the display I bought myself:

--The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle)
--Treasure Island (by Robert Louis Stevenson)
--Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (Lewis Caroll)

Also contemplating picking up The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, A Clockwork Orange and Lolita. In fact, if anyone has read them I'd love to hear what you thought.

Only read Sherlock so far. And it was fantastic.

When did RPGFan's forums turn into Facebook or Twitter? 

I don't have an account for either for a reason.

Brewfest is currently going on in World of Warcraft.

When not having drunken brawls with Dark Iron Dawarves I must say that Drunken RP is highly amusing.
839  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Disgaea 4 Announced and Trailer on: September 17, 2010, 05:03:56 AM
Glad to see the graphics are a little better.

But otherwise it just looks like more of the same. A desperate attempt to make some money back off a few failed titles. Disgaea is losing it's charm for me. I really enjoyed the first (Etna, Lahral and Flonne were a great, and unique cast). Two had much improved gameplay, but was weaker otherwise. 3 was just a complete rehash with atrocious graphics.

I'll probably skip this one.
840  Media / General Games / Re: New Devil May Cry, bitches. on: September 15, 2010, 12:14:14 PM
So excited for a new one. Bugs me Capcom aren't doing it though.

But I'm sorry, that looks nothing like Dante. Nothing like him at all.
