The story will be low-level. We are not going to save the world, or even save a city. We are focused on the main character and his problems, or her problems.

Thinking on it, when I played persona 4, I was more interested in the problems each character faced at the end of a dungeon rather than actually saving them. The game still has the whole saving the world vibe though.

Is there any word on if Sony are going to do something similar in relation to used games? Most things I have heard tend to be pretty confusing.

Lucifer is kicking my ass in Devil Survivor Overclocked. Trying to grind my guys up to at least level 80 to comfortably survive his almighty attacks.

Binding of Issac is a lot more fun than I thought. I have beaten the depths 2 only once with the boss kicking my ass every other attempt. Love the boss fights in the game.

Grinding Grade Points before I tackle the last boss. I am playing on hard and the bonus boss is kicking my ass.

TL;DR I suck at gaming.

Finished the first season of Vikings. Episode 8 and 9 felt rushed compared to the others. As always Floki was awesome while Bjorn is a whiny brat. Lagertha > Aslaug.

Show Spoiler
I actually really like Rollo despite his one dimension character. Hopefully he will stick by Ragnar even with what happened the last episode. Ragnar turned into a bit of a dick the last two episodes even though I understand that they had to somehow bring in his new sons somehow. The legends are as much about Ragnar's sons as they are about himself.

Legend Spoiler
I was really surprised that they have already shown the snake pit. Makes me wonder if Ragnar will survive the second season even though I think the second season is going to focus on France.

Finished Under the Dome and 11/22/63 by Stephen King . I really enjoyed Under the Dome even though I thought the ending kind of sucked. Almost wished they had just left everything a mystery.

I also enjoyed reading 11/22/63 although I preferred the first half of the book. It may have been different if I knew more about JFK and Oswald beforehand. I still thought it was a great read though. While the ending seemed dissapointing at first, I can't really see how it could have been done differently.

The Atelier series.

But probably not what you're looking for ;)

The Atelier games are what I also thought of.

The first Inazuma Eleven game, Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter and the early Pokemon games would also count.

English only

I don't really mind the english only myself. If it has as much dubbed as previous entries, I will be pretty happy.

Is there a way to turn off the annoying repetitive chatter after each battle? It's a bit obnoxious.

IT'S REYN TIME all the time!

Whatta bunch of Jokers

Just beat Shadow of the Colossus.

I didn't really see Dormin as evil. The guy seemed to keep up his part of the deal and he had warned Wander that it was dangerous. Great game overall.

Now and then, Here and there is another depressing series. The first episode is really misleading though.

I am watching Arakawa under the bridge.The humour pretty stupid but effective.

Friends recommended this to me but I didn't really like it. First half was ok but it seemed to really go downhill in the later half. Hopefully Sinister is better.

Professor Layton and the Lost Future had a great ending even if it was depressing as hell. Everything that possibly could went wrong for Layton at the end.
612  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: I'd like some recommendation on: January 13, 2012, 01:42:26 PM
A few games I would recommend would be

Star Ocean 2 (Better than TLH but I do not know the reason you disliked it)
Suikoden 1 and 2

Radiant Historia (Great game with a great soundtrack)
The World Ends With You (Quite a unique game. You may want to look up the gameplay first)
SMT: Devil Survivor (Tactics mixed with turn based battle)
Etraian Odyssey (Not sure how you feel about dungeon crawlers)

Nostalgia - DS

I feel like I should like this game. It has features in it that I love yet this game somehow pushes me away. Things may go better if I give it another attempt.

Dragon Age - PS3

I think I just did not give this game the chance it deserved. If I have time over Christmas I will retry it.

Breath of Fire 3 - PSP

I love BoF IV and think I should like this also. I pretty much just gave up on this game after foolishly looking at a thread on gamefaqs. It explained about the master system and the amount of missables contained within.

Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Crystal Bearers - Wii
This game was one of the three I got with my Wii. I played this game for about an hour before putting it on the shelf. I partly blame Rune Factory Frontier for this. I hate the idea of only giving a game an hour chance so I will play it eventually. I think it was the main characters personality that drove me away. He reminded me of Luso from FFTA2.

I am pretty sure I will give them all another chance. I still remember when I used to damn Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter for its very existence. While it is not my favourite game now, I still had a blast when I gave it another shot.
