With that said, it was a shame that the Piano Collections for XIII wasn't all that good outside 3 tracks. Is really hard to do something better after the Piano Collections of FFVII or VIII though, I mean holy shit my ears are having sex right now omg.

Feels good. :3 teehee~

I think is better to say that the soundtrack was well made but not all that memorable, that I can believe. And aside from the graphics it was the second best thing from the game (even if not every single track was amazing or anything).

Every battle in Vagrant Story feels like a boss battle, and the battle system is pretty convoluted but somehow it works fine but is rather slow which can get pretty annoying from time to time.

Though, like I said before this game reeeally needs a remake. Seriously SE, make it happen!

I'm slowly learning how everything works in Vagrant Story, awesome game.

Actually, unanimous reaction seems to be in favor of that.  Not that FF13-1 set a high bar in anything other than graphics.

That's the problem, anything can be better than XIII and SE really doesn't have to make an effort to do another game set in the same setting/universe. I really got bored watching the game in the stream and that's mostly because the it looks exactly like XIII to me and I'm not going to even waste my time in giving it a chance.

And honestly, I didn't enjoy the characters in XIII so that's another reason of no matter how "better" XIII-2 might be I am not not giving it a chance. If anything, I only want SE to release FFType-0 and start giving us more information about Versus XIII.

He sometimes lists Nier and Demon's Souls too, it's just that he seems to put those other games on about the same level as Demon's Souls and Nier. As for his age, lets just say he's been playing RPGs since the NES era, yet he doesn't seem as tied down to the past as most. Hell, last time I asked him what his favorite RPGs were the oldest game he listed was Morrowind and King's Field IV. Granted, he seems to see the good in all RPGs, I think he's definitely exaggerating the quality of most PS3 JRPGs just because there aren't as many to play. Even if they are his kinda games, there are better games in those niches, some of which I'm sure he's played.

Huh. He has been playing RPGs way before I did... still, it seems that he says what are his favorites by how his mood is, which is something that happens to us all really.

Either way putting games like Nier or Demon's Souls on the same level as Neptunia is just wrong in my opinion. And is not a thing of being tied to the past or even nostalgia is just something of having standards after years and years of playing games of your favorite genre.

I finally have an excuse to post this video.

I still feel that the "just ok" games get elevated to awesome status because of the general lack of any real competition.

I think I know what you mean. I have a friend who says the PS3 is a must-have if you like JRPGs, but when ever I ask him what great games the PS3 has, he tends to list stuff like Ar Tonelico Qoga, Trinity Universe, and Hyperdimension Neptunia - games that are okay in most respects, but not really that great.

Man, I don't want to sound like an asshole but how old is he? I can't imagine anyone that has played RPGs since at least the PSone and/or PS2 days saying that those games are great. Personally I think that those titles are garbage, but hey, there is an audience for those types of RPGs and there's nothing wrong about that. But what happenned with games like Valkyria Chronicles, Nier, Demon's Souls or even Disgaea 4?

Granted these games I mentioned do not have a turn-based battle system but gaming has changed a lot in the last few years and that type of battle system (for what I understand) was created back then because of the limitations of the systems themself in those days (dunno about SRPGs though, those games try to present themself in other manner than your typical JRPGs).

Maybe I make me a present by buying Catherine, I was searching for the game this week and I ended up buying a PSN card of $20 and the mexican magazine of Club Nintendo that comes with a huge poster of Skyward Sword this month.

I would love to get the new Zelda along with KOF XIII (with the soundtrack bonus) but the family is short in money. And either way, if I got some money in Christmas it would be nice but presents is not really a thing that bothers me to get in this season.

Now that I think about it, I don't remember seeing a copy of 999 in one of the stores where I usually buy games from. Maybe I did see a copy of it but they had like one and maybe two on sale. Sometimes that happens. :/
