1. Panzer Dragoon Saga - there's nothing else like it.  The story is excellent, the world is unique, and the battles are short and sweet.  
2. Shining Force 3 - fun SRPG battles and with cool characters and lots of secrets
3. Skies of Arcadia - as others have said, likable characters and a very fun world to explore
4. Dragon Force - extremely addicting SRPG with multiple playable protagonists
5. Riviera -  fun characters, good music, cool dating sim esque choices that affect events and the ending  
6. Infinite Space - excellent story, lots of customization
7. Valkyrie Profile - great music, awesome battle system
8. Growlanser V/VI - amazing artwork, good stories and characters, excellent combat system

It's been quite a while since I've played many of these so my order might change a bit if I replayed them.  Also, if you consider Shenmue an RPG I'd slip it right above Skies of Arcadia.

I really like Gundam X as well.  It's my 2nd favorite after G gundam.  I also thought that the ending was a cop out with regard to the newtypes, but otherwise it was good.  I liked how they managed to have an excuse for a battle to happen in every single episode (or at least I think there was).

It's kinda a tease if the game has visible encounters but you can't really avoid them.  I don't like that.

This is coming from someone who has barely seen any of the UC Gundam stuff but I'm not particularly fond of Gundam Unicorn.  The battles are very cool but I don't like the characters. 

The Gundam 00 movie is kinda weird.  It's mostly just flashy stuff but the story actually does continue where season 2 left off.  The story for the movie is not all that complicated, and I actually felt the movie could have been shorter...there is actually too much action in my opinion, and most of the action is not mobile suit vs mobile suit so it is not as cool.  I wouldn't call it bad though, it makes sense at least (or I thought it did anyway) and the new gundam designs are cool.

I'm interested in this but I'm concerned about the combat system.  From the videos I saw and what little I've read it sounds like it has a rock paper scissors based combat system.  It's not good for a single player game to have a combat system based highly on guessing.  Plus, maybe this is just me but I fail to see the reason for a turn based combat system in a game where you only control 1 character during combat. 

Of course, these are just my initial impressions and may be incorrect.

Well....I know you guys were re-rolling your stat bonus when making your hero.  That's basically the same as reloading your file when you get a ridiculously bad level up.
337  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Now is the perfect time for SEGA to announce the Shenmue HD Collection on: June 07, 2011, 08:59:48 PM
I don't see how the gameplay has aged at all.

Agreed, I played through them again a year or two ago and they were just as good as ever.  I'd take Shenmue over Yakuza anyday.

today I learned that a character can become "lost" if you fail a revival and then they are gone forever.  yet another stupid game mechanic to make me reload the file lol

Also I wish I hadn't made a priest and a bishop now.  Wish I just had 2 bishops instead >_>  too lazy to grind a replacement for the priest though
339  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Wizardry on the PS3 being localized, hell frozen over on: June 06, 2011, 10:14:45 PM
I believe there's a "Register" option in the guild that lets you create characters (thats what I think it's called anyway).

I will complain that there is no digital manual with the game.  A new player like me is most likely going to be confused when they see a stat called "PIE" much less know what it actually does.  I know it's piety and affects being able to be a priest/bishop class but I still have no idea what the stat actually does.  I could look it up of course, but games shouldn't require you to look up basic crap like this elsewhere

I went with the female dwarf as my main.  I've noticed the "main" characters have different colors than the ones you can make.  Is there any way to change the colors of other party members you are making?

anyone know why treasure only made this for 360?  ps3 guys without a 360 just kinda miss out on this (that bangai-o remake too).  I've got the Saturn version but I just can't help but wonder

Microsoft Requested Radiant Silvergun for XBLA

Also, the dudes at Treasure games has said that they feel comfortable working on titles for the XBLA service thingy.

cool that explains it

Radiant Silvergun is a lot better than Ikaruga btw (imo).

Unfortunately that isn't a new design....that's his SCIV artwork

maybe try this site http://www.yesasia.com/us/en/home.html though I don't know that they have what you're looking for (they might though)

I've gotten some things from them before with free shipping, though it only applies for certain things and I don't recall the minimum purchase amount.

Most Gundams are Slow to start. Gundam SEED was incredible in the second half.

Gundam 00 started off especially slow I thought.  There was almost no interaction between the main characters for the first 4 episodes or so and they didn't really tell you anything about the characters either.  It felt like "boom anime characters in mechs fighting and stuff!" and I almost gave up on it.
