I'm still waiting for mine to come in the mail from Amazon.  I'm planning to start on hard mode since I beat I&II for DS before (and I thought Ys II was a lot easier than Ys I).  Hopefully I'll be able to handle it lol.

I think the roster size is just about right.  Less characters makes the game feel "tighter" a lot of times imo.  If this was a 1 on 1 game I'd say it has too many characters but for a team game the size seems just right.  I might switch out hsien-ko for ironman on my team though...she's just not working well for me...and ironman seems fun and good

Is it like Half-Minute Hero ?

I haven't played Cladun but the gameplay looks nothing like Half Minute Hero.  All they share is retro style graphics.

I don't think the game is masher friendly either.  The better player and/or better team is certainly going to win most of the time.  I think part of the reason the game favors zoning/projectile characters over rushdown characters is because of the advance guard system.  It pushes out a lot so it makes it harder for characters to keep pressure going, plus the fact that unlike similar anti pressure systems in other games (instant block/just defense/etc) it is extremely easy to do and requires virtually no timing.

Hey I've got the ps3 version so if anyone wants to do some player matches you can add "TiamatNM" on psn but please say something about rpgfan if you add me so I know where you're from

The game is a lot of fun.  I've been using a team of Hsien, Morrigan, and Dormammu.  Unfortunately it is becomming apparent that Hsien is the weak link on my team so I may be replacing her with Ironman or something and just use her on the side.

Latria is pretty confusing. 

I'm looking forward to this.  I'm sure I'll still have to be careful whenever I put down my controller so it doesn't hit a trigger button by accident and make an NPC hate me FOREVER....>_>

I just preorded the Limited Edition.  I got a good feeling about this game so I have a feeling I'll regret it later if I don't get the LE.  I like Falcom and the fans have said a lot of good things about it so I have high hopes.

Some may not agree with me and if you don't I genuinely ask you to explain to me why you like this game: Infinite Space.

The gameplay is so confusing it makes Knights in the Knightmare mechanics look like a baby's toy. The characters look blend and unispiring, voice acting is bad, but luckily it's only in the videos, the graphics are just terrible and for the last, the worst, the combat is so boring it almost made me sleep and I'm not kidding.

Maybe I'm missing the point about customizing your ship and all, but I truly wanted it to be good.

I like the game mainly for the story, exploration, and customization.  IMO the writing is really good and the characters have good depth to them, especially the main character since he changes a lot throughout the game.  Even conversations with random people in the bars are usually interesting and make the "world" of the game seem more real.  I also like that the game frequently allows you to make choices that change the way the story unfolds, though the game only has one ending.  What battles you fight, what characters join you, what characters you kill, what ships and modules you get, all these things can be affected by your choices throughout the game.  

The ship customization is a lot of fun thanks to the tetris like modules you use to modify the ship and the fact that there are a lot of different modules with different effects.  Certainly more fun than the actual combat IMO.  I'll agree with you the combat is pretty boring, but usually it is a quick affair if you keep stabbing that touch screen to skip the animations (everyone does this most of the time, anyone who says otherwise is lying lol).  Of course, I will sometimes watch the animations just to feel cool when I see a whole ton of projectiles from my ships wreck everything.  I'd say Knights in the Nightmare has much more complicated gameplay, as the only thing especially  complicated about Infinite Space is the ship customization.  The game does do a pretty bad job of explaining how to tell what enemy ship is "in front" though so I had a lot of trouble against the first boss because of that.  Basically though, I'm saying the meat of the game is not the combat so I don't think it is all that terrible that the battle system is unexceptional.  So that is why I like it but I can tell it's not for everyone.

I played the game about 9 hours and gave up.  In all that time I completed only one dungeon which took maybe half an hour.  There were some other little "dungeons" with enemy encounters but you could run through those in like 3 mins so they didn't really count imo.  My brother beat it and he still said there still weren't much dungeons so I found it easy to believe.  Game rather have you run around and watch boring cutscenes repeatedly.

As for DS....it's a bit more subjective I think. It doesn't seem to be that there are any truly bad RPGs, more just that they disappointed - like Infinite Space. Can anyone else elaborate?

Apparently it disappointed you but I think it is the best game on the DS.  Just sayin'

I'd say to avoid Golden Sun Dark Dawn unless you like

1) being treated like a 5 year old constantly
2) horribly written dialogue
3) not having any significant innovations/changes to the original golden sun battle system
4) awkward item menus and a useless world map
5) general lack of dungeons

being able to re-set a team and their assists sounds really handy

you can find videos of hsien-ko and sentinel on youtube now. 
343  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Marvel vs. Capcom 3 announced on: January 16, 2011, 06:16:15 PM
I'm just waiting on the Hsien-ko reveal.  My team probably gonna be her, Morrigan, and Zero.

You might want to check out Gundam X and Gundam 00 if you haven't yet.  They are pretty similar to Gundam Wing.

Pretty cool awards.  Glad the Ys games got some (personally I like Seven better).  I'm just sad that none of the lists had Infinite Space on them.  I am pretty baffled at Golden Sun DD getting the runner up award for DS as well.  The game treats the player like a stupid child.

also kudos to Dennis's "Best 2009 RPG I've played in 2010" for Half Minute Hero.  would win in that category for me as well
