I'd like an opinion from you guys. I just got Radiant Historia but didn't finish Dragon Quest IX. Actually, I barely touched DQIX.
The thing is I'm not the biggest fan od DQ games as I feel they usually become somewhat boring when reaching the end of the game.

My question, should I finish DQIX or jump straight to Radiant Historia ?
Jump straight into Radiant Historia. 8 hours in and holy shit it keeps getting better. Not to mention the story is great so far. Awesome MC too.
This game is in my honest opinion the best DS rpg available now. I highly recommend stopping anything else you're doing and play it instead. It's incredibly well done, though I do recommend not completing everything, as the real ending is kinda typical RPG fare, the basic ending is much better I think (in a story sense, feels more heroic). In any case, this story trumps any DQ story by a mile.

Reasons why LttP is an RPG:
- Has fucking elves.
- You can grind for shit like money and hearts.
- Has some fucking bullshit about a princess. Y'all like princesses, right?
- Craps out completely in the second half.

Reasons why Wind Waker is an RPG:
- You can have sex with a boat.
If you ignore the basic classifications, every game should be considered a role playing game, as you assume the role of a character that isn't yourself.

Hence my new vote for worst RPG is Call of Duty Black Ops.

I can do worst than everything said here without even trolling at all.


I shit you not, I find that game awful. I'd rather play FFT:Advanced on the GBA over it.

- The flow of the story is horrible since you get very little between each fight and then a giant bitchslap of it at the end of a chapter.
- Overly long game. Some battles or story bits could have been filler episode if this was a TV show.
- The difficulty of the game is completely unbalanced. I was having a really hard time winning a random encounter at the beginning. Later, a friend told me about the 100 valor, 0 fate, monk counter + camouflage combo... and I was never hit for the rest of the whole game fighting solo.
- Turns are soooooo slow (okay, a lot of tactic games have that problem, but still worth noting)
- The most retarded cast of secret characters I have ever seen.
- No way to foresee how to get said special characters without a guide.

I cried fucking man tears dude. That ending was brilliant. Seriously, go play...no, go beat this game right now.

Worst RPG I've played probably goes to Saga Frontier. Man that was awful.
I don't think I like you anymore.

Final Fantasy VII

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

Rule #2=same as rule 1, but in bigger font and more profanity.

Persona 3

"Hey guys, there's a demon over there trying to...do....something to that coffin which is a person who's asleep in this midnight hour abyss that doesn't seem to end, lets shoot ourselves in the head with our pretend guns and advocate that through death one can unleash raw power...or something?"

What, I said it, do something.
2757  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Radiant Historia on: February 27, 2011, 03:47:49 PM
Loving the game so far, but I agree that it really needed a mini-map.  I think DQ9 spoiled me here, but I have to paint a mental image of the dungeon all the time, which is a little annoying.  Loving the battle system too!
You won't really need a mini map, the areas are pretty simplistic and in short supply. You'll revisit each spot multiple times in each timeline. Adding to that the fact that each area is only roughly 3-5 maps long, 7 so far being the big number I've seen (and I'm at I think the end of the game). Now where you're spoiled from DQIX, I'm more hardened from FFXI which has no mini map to speak of, so alot of my running was blind, but even then, Radiant Historia's maps =/= FFXI maps.

Kinda small spoiler, but meh most of you probably figured this already. Always try to do both options at a critical juncture. Yes, you will get a bad ending, but it completes more of the story chart, and it doesn't impede your progress. HOWEVER, when given the option to return after a /fin, find a save point and warp back to the juncture point. I saw a few people complain about it on other forums, so I figured I'd toss it out there. Anyways, gonna go beat (spoilers) now, and probably gonna have to fight (spoilers) shortly afterwards, since he's the owner of the (spoilers). Wish me luck.

It's more than simply re-doing wrong choices, the 2 timelines impact one another directly and indirectly. Without spoiling anything, one mini quest you start in timeline A can be completed via timeline B, and saving someone in timeline B will allow them to arrive for a future event in timeline A. It's just a shame that this is on a handheld system, as with some more power, this whole timeline hopping system could have some huge possibilities, like real impact if you make different choices. I don't mean the simple left or right, left=wrong choices, I mean if you go left, then you either die, start over, and try again, or go left, tangle with the odds you're given, and the story adjusts based on your interaction in said option. It's not a complaint, just a longing desire for a future title like this.

I've been playing pretty much all day today, some 25 hours in now. I love it, best DS game I've picked up this year, and last year for that matter. 3 points for atlus for this one.

30 hours doesn't feel long to me, but mabe I'm just spoiled from MMOs somewhat. 40 hour games are basically an extended weekend for me, so if this is about the same, I'll be done by sunday, which means back to Dragon Quest VI, which I'm about halfway done with, and then back to tactics ogre, which is also about halfway done. Hopefully by then, I'll be ready for the third birthday...hopefully.

Off topic, yes, my my experience with atlus titles may be slightly less than numerous, but the ones I named I really don't like at all. I played a couple of Shin Megami Tensei games, including digital devil saga (enjoyed greatly) strange journey and devil summoner on DS (not so much) and I think a few others I can't remember offhand. I'm not saying all of the current atlus titles out there suck, just a lot of them aim for some lame character design, shoddy "japanese meets american" feel, or try to play off on the whole emo scene by giving your team guns to shoot themselves in the head to unlock their inner power etc etc (I REALLY hate persona 3). Again, I like a few games, but damn I hated some of them hard.

On topic, THIS GAME IS WINTASTIC. I don't get it, I love it and it's just so....simple. It plays well, it's pretty, it's fun, the story is addictive, the time hopping is creative beyond anything I've seen in many other rpgs of late. This game definitely is a must have for a DS owner. Dincrest's review is spot on, maybe even selling it short somewhat. My only dislike is the fact that I can't hook it up to my 32 inch TV somehow and play it on a larger screen. That and I know it's gonna be short :(
