DS has some fantastic portable rpgs for you, including the new Golden Sun next month, and the remake of Lufia II. Plus all the new Dragon Quest titles are fun (4, 5, and 9). Add the remade Chrono Trigger, and you got yourself a good month (week) of material.

PSP has some interesting titles to look at as well. Ys seven is a great pick up and put back down game, with plenty frenzied beat-em up action alongside a well written (albeit generic) storyline. FFT War of the Lions is a greatly well done remake of the psx original, and adds ad-hoc multiplayer for some serious bragging rights. Add Persona 3 portable (ungh) and Phantasy Star Portable 1 and 2 (double unghs) and again, plenty of time occupied.

As far as console RPGs go lately, not much worth noting outside the greatly hyped fair, like Fable III, Fallout New Vegas, Nier, and so on. Haven't touched most of these because the only good one I've played in months is still Mass Effect 2, which is the pinnacle of a great story driven RPG. All things considered, if you need an RPG fix, go towards the handhelds. With the upcoming 3ds, I expect glorious new things from Nintendo's handheld department.

The other thing Natsume is best at is localizing Lufia games.

This thread is like a flashback of FFXI's release. Lots of fanboys, lots of butthurt, lots of trolls loling ridiculous hard, and still Blizzard continues to reign supreme.

I have this huge rant ready for people who defend shittily made games, but I don't wanna type it, it's long and wordy. Instead, easy answer is if the game is shit, fix it if it can be fixed. If you can't fix it, then why in god's name did you release it to begin with? Morons defending this game right now, saying it's fine, or it's not that bad, you should be slapped. This isn't fine, this is the kind of work that if it were a buildinig they made, would be deemed hazardous, and condemned within years, if it didn't simply fall to pieces before that. fix your game, SE, for fucks sake.

Most WOmanly character in a jrpg would have to be Emelia from SaGa Frontier for PSX. She's a model who's husband gets killed, and goes from girly mess to ass kicking assasin in only a few hours...and she wears a bunny outfit.

Level ups are a hell of a drug.

How did you play that game long enough to find all that out anyway? I can't tell you how many times I started that one only to forget about it after a few hours.
I've beaten every scenario but lute's and Asellus's cuz those 2 are stupid hard and annoying. That being said, fight a lot, use mecs if you're having trouble killing things, and swords are great, but fist is epic if you get DSC.

Normally when you give away a free month of a pay-to-play mmo, you did something really bad and are trying to apologize for it. Honestly, I'd rather just wait and see IF they fixed it, before I assume they fixed it and pay for their busted ass game.It's enough I pay for FFXI still, and it's only half fucked...
2947  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Lufia: Curse of the Sinistrals on: October 15, 2010, 11:52:26 PM
So I breezed through this game in the last two days, and I gotta say I loved it. Shorter by leaps and bounds than the orginal title for SNES, but it held alot of the original story together doing so. I will say it's very different, but not enough to feel different. It felt as good as playing Lufia II so many years ago. It's fast oaced, the puzzles are not hard, but take a minute to figure out if you're looking (mostly break this, move that, jump here kinda stuff), and the voice acting is in short enough bursts that I'm not raging about the horrible DS sound for it. On that note, all of the orginal music is intact and kicks ass. If you have an acekard, fuck downloading it, go buy it anyway, support natsume, get a new Lufia game made like this. It's freaking win, I loved every second of it, and am planning my new game plus run tomorrow.

I think this topic calls for a video...

2950  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mega Man Legends 3 on: October 13, 2010, 12:48:44 AM
When I took my picture of him (Keiji Inafune) at Comic Con, I screamed Megaman Legends 3, even though they were demoing Megaman Universe all around him. He gave me a super jp powered thumbs up, and I knew....This game will be great!

He's officially the coolest japanese person I've ever met.

I thought we got banned from games for real money trading? Why would I pay dice to help me play games then? I don't wanna get banned :O

So I was at a Square Enix Booth at New York Comic Con this weekend passing, and FFXIV was being demoed there, with displays and pcs set up for trying it out, making your character, etc. I was listening in on a demonstration and watching the rep play a bit, and he kept going on about the amazing graphics and vastness of the play areas, which from what I know, have read, and seen thus far is about all it offers. So I waited for an opening during the live demo and shouted from the back of the crowd "Hey how's that 4/10 from gamespot make you feel?!". Fanboys turned and booed right away, with everyone else just looking, and the rep getting mad and muttering "yeah yeah" into his live mic.

I was pleased.

Been at New York Comic Con yesterday and today, got some awesome photos. Here's a few of my favorites (sorry for the stretched size, but they look crappy otherwise).

Mike Haggar, I was overjoyed :)

An EXCELLENT comedian, but the hair was slightly off. Otherwise perfect.

Isaac of dead space. I even got to play Dead Space 2 while I was there. Epic.

I liked it, cuz I always seemed to catch the face side.

I know I'm not in it, but it's the joker beating on Jason Todd Robin. How could I not post it?

Quailman, complete with underpants over his shorts. I was pleased.

Best Tifa I came across, I caught her early, and when I asked for the picture, she seemed so excited. I told her she was the best looking Tifa I'd seen there, and she was very happy.

My absolute favorite picture. I cut off a line that was 100 feet long, and shouted Megaman Legends 3, he gave me a thumbs up, so I whipped out my camera and said Megaman forever! Keiji Inafune...sweet.

I have more on my photobucket page, but these are the ones I had to throw on. I also managed to bump into Bruce Campbell, and the only thing I could say was OH MY GOD IT'S BRUCE CAMPBELL, and he replied 30 bucks for an autograph. I don't care, Bruce Campbell acknowledged my existence.

Best day ever.

^i'm surprised you mentioned samurai instead of dark knights
Because dark knight is a ridiculous waste of time getting, but a superior class for overall use in general.
