Newest patch lowered the Expert dungeon difficulty levels to bang your face on the keyboard easy. This has made alot of people upset since most of them were on the level of being just slightly lower difficulty then The Burning Crusade Heroics pre nerf. I see this as a stupid move really.  What are they going to do when everyone has all the gear? Most people do not  raid so the experts and warfronts are pretty much their endgame.

...They nerfed them into the ground to the point you can almost ignore the boss fight mechanics entirely.  

Sad to hear.  How in touch are they with the community?  Do they ever give reasoning behind this sort of thing?  I wonder how many people struggled with the bosses pre-nerf.  Definitely doesn't seem like a good idea for the long run.
They listened to the  I want my gear but I do not want to put in any effort for it crowd.

edit: They were not really that hard to begin with most of the boss mechanics were simple, and could be summed up as see lasers run away . when the  boss does aoe gtfo, do not stand in it. Trion said they were just going to slightly nerf the instance trash hp, which was needed in the hardest instance  Deep Strike Mines that  had mountains among mountains of trash. What they did was nerf everything to hell.

Hm... I'm nowhere near leveled high enough to speak to that yet, but I tend to be against difficulty nerfs on principle unless the encounter(s) in question are legitimately unfair.  Perhaps they'll adjust the difficulty once again in another patch to push it back if it becomes clear to them that the dungeons are now too easy?  I certainly don't want to give anyone excuses, but Rift is a relatively new MMO, and balance can be a very touchy thing (particularly, I imagine, in light of all the possible class and spec combinations in this one- I imagine there must be significant variance in group makeup and abilities, even in the endgame).
They nerfed them into the ground to the point you can almost ignore the boss fight mechanics entirely.

The original soul caliber was the best. The series steadily went downhill from there . Hopefully V won't be broken to hell like 3 and 4 were.

Cat has drill hair, thus loses by default.

I really have no hopes for this and am rather miffed this is what they chose to do with P4. (P3 gets remade twice and all P4 gets is a "Oh yeah; you still exist. Have an animated adaptation instead of any new material across any medium.") XP Until I find a show that proves me wrong I really have no faith in present-day Japanese ability to tell a proper story through the anime medium without botching it up horribly somehow. And if Sakura Wars New York NY has taught me anything it's that the Video Game to Movie stereotype applies to Video Game to Anime as well; expect a train wreck, be pleasantly surprised if it comes out anything above "below average".

Edit: Sorry, three times. I forgot about that cell phone thing for P3.
Tales of the Abyss anime  turned out ok

I still prefer the originals a lot more  then the  remakes and the lunatic festa osts are arranged,  not exactly what you hear in game.

I can see why you like them I just prefer the originals.

There are plenty of JRPGs competently writtten. Competently translated is a different story.

But wait a minute. For an JRPG to be competently translated as you say it has to be competently writtten too, don't you think?

A lot of things in Japanese just does not translate well into English.

It should be pretty good if they stay faithful to the source material . The high school comedy that the Japanese love and some mystery suspense . I just hope to God that it does not end up being like Trinity Soul.

Wouldn't surprise me, Im still running a P4 3ghz Hyper Thread :p

Thanks man, I actually got to play the trial last weekend, a buddy of mine got a similar type of thing.  It was ok, though for some reason I couldn't get it to look good on my machine.  No matter what I tried it looked rather..blurry and whatnot.  Still had some cool ideas though.
Its a bitch to run. Well at least getting a acceptable fps with everything maxed. I hear people's cpu are bottle-necking  gpu's.
