turn order is just based on your agility rating right?  I don't know what you mean about things being left to chance in battle, it really didn't feel that way to me. 

I've only played EO3 though

I like the artwork for this game.  The Black Dragon looks really cool

hmmm.....maybe a bit similar...but I don't like soul nomad >_>

Yeah I saw my friend playing Chaos Wars and decided not to get it despite some of the characters in it (from growlanser and gungrave especially).  The whole idea of cross over RPGs is kinda a turn off for me.  

As others have said, there really isn't anything like Dragon Force.  Alisha:  Yggdra Union is similar in some ways but also not.  It does have a military campaign feel and the battles are similar in that you don't actually have much control once the clash/battle occurs but other than that they are very different.  Yggdra Union is extremely linear by comparison.

I was wondering about that recently.  I will have to join up.  Certainly my favorite publisher these days.

I bought Basilisk recently and had the choice of DVD or Blueray for the same price.  The blueray might look better, it might look the same for all I know.   I decided to go with DVD for utility reasons.  If i get it on blueray i can only play it on my ps3.  If I get it on dvd i can also play it on my laptop and other people's dvd players if need be.

Shoulda had Pratty from Summon Night in the best list lol. 

The entire cast of Grandia 3 sucks btw since that was mentioned earlier.  >_>

I think it might be cool if you did one for male characters too if you didn't do that already at some point.

I'm in the middle of chapter 2 and haven't felt that way at all, Aeolus.  I've just been playing normally and haven't lost a single battle.  The game seems pretty easy, really.  I haven't felt the need to do anything to 'break' it.  I tend to keep my S-Breaks in reserve but then end up not using them at all.  I did run from one fight early on but it was a monster-in-a-box that I wasn't expecting and clearly wasn't prepared for.

And the game seems to actively discourage grinding since if your level gets too high for the enemies you're fighting they barely give you any rewards.

Yeah the game is pretty easy.  I got game over twice but it was just some bad luck/simple mistakes both times.  I like that running from battles actually works in this game.  Not like some games >_>

I will say though that the last area is pretty annoying and the chest monsters there take way too long to kill (and there are like 17million of them).  I seriously think that is my least favorite part of the game.  It's such a generic ass dungeon and the battle theme there isn't as good as the normal one either.

After years of not watching anything new I started watching Darker Than Black.

Pretty decent.

Darker than Black is cool.  Season 2 not so much...

I just finished watching Shiki and I thought it was really good.  For those who don't know, it's about vampires killing people in a small japanese town and the people trying to figure out what's causing all the deaths.  I was totally expecting it to have some retarded ending when I was about halfway through but I was pleasantly surprised.

Nope, just like the music industry here, the actual author makes nearly nothing. Worst, they don't get money for concert or publicity.
That's why you've never really heard of a stinking rich manga artist.

Well if their series are popular and they get anime and other merchandise  they can wind up quite wealthy.  I'm sure Akira Toriyama is pretty loaded, as is that uh...Rumiko Takahashi (might have wrong name) who did Inuyasha/ranma/etc stuff.

I've only read the manga.  My brother tells me the anime is very good though.

It's mostly psychological/comedy/depressing.  Kinda dark humor I guess.  It's depressing but its not constant there's still some hope and stuff, its kinda up and down in that way.  

I think Thoren on this site has an avatar from it
314  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: PSP PSN RPG downloads on: March 31, 2011, 02:21:59 PM
Hexyz Force is good though I think there are better games you could download.  Haven't played Crimson Gem Saga.  

Depending what kinda game you want I'd recommend Gurumin, Half Minute Hero, Ys Seven, and ZHP for downloadable PSP games.  Not sure on prices but Gurumin at least should be $15 or under.

then a bunch of stuff happens all at once but none of that matters any more because "IRIS! WHAT AM I FIGHTING FOOOOOOOORRRRR!!!!!",


and yeah I agree with Annubis it gets better in the 2nd half or so of season 2.
