Listening to the podcast; for anyone who wants to play this in multiplayer: download Hamachi.
Hamachi solved the problems I've had with playing with others.

(For people who don't know, Hamachi creates a VPN network between multiple people making it seem like everyone is in a LAN)

You're a gentleman/woman and a scholar.

Tactics, hands-down, in every single aspect.

Wow, sweet! Not much, but at least it's still in development. Digging the updated character models. FFX is a game that would be welcome on my Vita, goofball cast and all.

Finally picked this up last night. I will probably put Fire Emblem aside to play it, since I've only ever played the first dungeon in P4G and have heard great things about the story.

Most people are saying it's a PSone Classic, as there are legal issues that prevent the full remake from being released.

Womp womp.

Picked up P4G at last, today. Looking forward to starting it this week.

You know, the more I play this-- and I'm enjoying it, by the way-- the more it seems to me that the story is utter crap. Events just happen with little or no justification and seem just like setups for the awesome cutscenes. Like
Code:
The arena fight in Ferox? Oh, hi, we just met but u fight for me for my political position?

Also so far, the character conversations haven't been nearly as interesting as anything I've seen in other games with skits. This game gets a bit of a pass, I suppose, since there's so many of them, but at least up to A rank I haven't really felt like I've read anything... interesting, between some of my characters. As a gameplay mechanic they're great and give me SOMETHING to personify the people, but I have to say once I got over the initial awesomeness of the presentation, I feel like I'm reading a Saturday-morning cartoon.

The rings look nicer than a big list. They have less room for text. It's a tradeoff.
864  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Persona 4 Golden for the Vita. on: February 17, 2013, 12:00:32 AM
I really need to play it.

I can certainly see a lot of the complains you bring up, Mesh, especially the hacking minigame.  I'm just loving this game's atmosphere and sense of place far more than anything else I've played in a long time.  The Von Braun feels alive and full of character.  This is the reason I loved the Spencer mansion in the original Resident Evil and Rapture in Bioshock.  The Ishimura was the closest thing to a living world since, but even that felt cold and sterile compared to the eeriness of the Von Braun. 

Well, in the Ishimura's defense, it WAS cold and sterile. Until the hit shit the fan.

I don't really get the whole four of February thing.  Do people really play through four games in a month?  I mean, any month...even at my best I don't think I've done more than two.  These days a single game can can me several months...



Yeah, no kidding. Even in my glory days as a high school student I couldn't finish four in a month. Fire Emblem will be my bedtime game for the next four months, most likely.

Well yeah, if you play LUNATIC CLASSIC.

Hey, I'm not known for being sane :D

Plus, when I win, I FEEL SO AWESOME

On the subject of music, SoA had brilliant dynamic themes, where they changed based on your location on the map and your progress in a boss battle.

I really wish more RPGs would do that.

Gee, I sure hope there's an upcoming RPGFan feature that addresses this exact topic! :)

But yeah, it was awesome flying past Ixa'Taka and hearing the drums, etc. Pure awesome.

I really liked Skies of Arcadia, but the encounter rate was excessive on the world map, even though it was absolutely fine in the dungeons. It took some of the shine off the fun of exploration when you were getting into the same battles over and over again. I haven't played the Gamecube version, apparently the encounter rate is lower, but from what I've heard the soundtrack wasn't converted perfectly, the Dreamcast sounds better.

I'd have no problem with random encounters in RPGs if only they followed Panzer Dragoon Saga's example - once you've outleveled an area encounters start to disappear completely, instead of wasting your time with pointlessly easy battles.

Yeah, you've heard right. They overcompressed the music to fit on one GC disc, and so it sounds flatter and less awesome. It's especially noticable during the best part of the on-foot battle theme :(
