I'm happy they removed it just because I dislike pointless mini-games. Not that I'll be playing this regardless...

Yeah, Persona 3 or 4, or even Persona 2 are the best places to start, IMO. Persona 2 doesn't have the greatest gameplay, but it does introduce you to demon negotiations, and I personally found its story very impressive.

Granted, I started with the first SMT game in the series. I still liked it a lot, but I don't recommend doing it unless you're stubborn. It's a very unkind game...

Oh yeah, I've had problems with Clickandbuy before. The problem is, I don't have a card anymore, and I'd rather not borrow from my parents again. Ah well, guess it wasn't meant to be.

i do find it amusing that tri ace worked on xiii-2...

That might explain some things, actually...

Also, just to clarify... it's a full blown comedy show (with some minor ecchi) and not the other way around.

That's kinda what I thought after I watched it, but everyone else kept billing it as an ecchi show.

Strange Journey seems to have a slightly large difficulty curve on the boss battles...or maybe it's me.

I think you're farther than me, but still, who are you on? Some of them can be tricky.

^I was really excited for From The New World until I saw the trailers. I might still go at it if I hear more good things, but those trailers made it look like it was a little too heavy on the shock treatment.

As for me, someone convinced me to give Binbogami-ga a try. I normally avoid ecchi shows, but this one is supposed to be better than average in the right ways. I only watched the first episode so far, but it's off to a very impressive start. It was funny, thrilling, and even a bit sad, all in one episode, and it was a lot less ecchi than I expected (most of it was in the ending animation). If it keeps this up, we might have a real winner here. I'll try to not get my expectations too high, though. Even if it never rises above decent, it'll still be better than most of the ecchi shows I've seen. =P

I should mention though, that Bumb of Chicken does sell albums in the US. I just bought two of them on iTunes US just yesterday...

^Yeah, outside of some grinding and the occasional vaguity, you you don't see those problems in good RPGs. With that said, they are problems cropping up in a surprising number of modern RPGs, so take that for what you will.

The only barrier to entry I've ever seen with RPGs in general is that people expect turn-based gameplay to be boring (and for most people they're usually right, the combat isn't the most appealing factor to a lot of RPG gamers afaik), and for JRPGs some people just don't like anime art styles that so many games utilize these days. I can't think of much else. A lot of JRPGs aren't really that complex, compared to certain board games and sports that a lot of non-gamers play. Like mesh said, if you can navigate a menu, you can play a JRPG. It might take some effort to get down the rules and naunces, but that can be said about FPS games, too.

I remember reading a lot of stuff about it in the news and on Webcomics. I think it was pretty controversial...
1226  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Suikoden 6, Breath of Fire 6, and Wild Arms 6... on: September 30, 2012, 12:50:43 PM
At this point, I'd rather they didn't make a Suikoden VI. It's one thing that the side games they're making now aren't so hot, but a main game this late in? No thank you.

Breath of Fire 6 would be lovely, though. Especially on a console. We don't have enough simple RPGs on consoles these days. How are people supposed to get introduced to RPGs these days when they're all so complex?

Though I suppose another one like Dragon's Quarters or MMX: Command Mission (gameplay-wise) wouldn't be so bad, either.

Wild Arms I have not played at all yet, but I can't get enough of cowboy-western themes, so I probably wouldn't mind another one.

Got over hurdle one in getting my copy of FFXI going: I got the viewer to update, and this time to a version that doesn't crap out on me. Unfortunately, I can't test to see if I can actually play the game (the second hurdle) unless I actually pay to have a character. And they don't accept Paypal. Fuck.

Those screens were in the press release. Just FYI.
1229  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: September 28, 2012, 02:04:48 PM
Or rather which crappy parts, since I find it hard to believe that they could take out all of it without removing what made the series what it was in the first place...

What DLC are you specifically talking about? 'cuz I'm sure there's quite a bit of DLC that's already on the disc...
