1246  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: the next big Jrpgs on xbox and ps3? on: December 16, 2011, 05:03:47 PM
Can somebody who disagrees with me actually respond to what I wrote?  I feel like a lot of people are just throwing up their hands saying there are no good console JRPGs without actually looking.  I just listed 6 quality console titles that out to all be out in 2012: Tales of Graces f, Atelier Meruru, Xenoblade Chronicles, FFXIII-2 (though admittedly I'm still a little skeptical on that one), Ni no Kuni, and The Last Story.

I disagreed, and while I'm not exactly dead serious about the subject, with a tendency to somewhat inflate the issue beyond its actual scale, there is one thing worth pointing out about your argument:
Most of the "good jRPGs" you named aren't even out yet. That right there is a sign that things aren't looking too hot at the moment, since any one of them may very well turn out to be a dud.

Yeah, you really have a point there. I got a PS3 mostly for those upcoming games, but I don't see much to play out of what's already on the system. Disgaea 4 and both Atelier games, but that's really it for me as far as JRPGs go. I was anticipated 3 other games, but they all turned out to be duds (Ar Tonelico, Rune Factory, and Hyper something or other Neptunia...those are the only games I've been wrong about since I first started playing RPGs). So yeah, things aren't looking good right now, and if those other games turn out to be duds, things'll be even worse.

I'll just wait and see if it's still there in January.

Is that Suikoden V on the list I see?

So yeah, I've been paying almost zero attention to this game for the longest time, but I just found out it has towns, mini-games, dialogue choices that are actually worth something, and multiple endings. I think I may actually like this game, provided the monster-raising and randomish encounters don't grate on my nerves too much.

This is apparently the chocobo theme if you can believe that...

EDIT: Scratch that, this is, most likely: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LFhy6n4R4I4

At least I hope it is, that other song's just awful IMHO. Totally kills my ears.

Yay, it's coming to the PSP, that means I can...import it. Yes.
1252  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenoblade on: December 02, 2011, 06:52:21 PM

Yippee, they kept the London accents! I don't know why I'm excited about that, but I am.

1254  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Getting psyched for Sakura Wars ~So Long, My Love~ on: December 02, 2011, 01:10:04 PM
What a coincidence, I just bought this game, and the premium edition at that. Looks like it'll be worth the price, judging from what I'm reading in the thread.
1255  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenoblade on: December 02, 2011, 12:52:29 PM
It's true. I called Gamestop and they confirmed that the listing is indeed in their system. Whether it's a mistake or not has yet to be seen. Said it was releasing April 3rd and others have been getting the same date.

Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood - I'll just say that this show was amazing in every way possible (except for the comedy aspect which fell flat most of the time but did get better in the second half), because there are just too many good things about it to point out. Seriously, if you haven't watched it yet, do so right now. It's seriously some of the best stuff you'll ever see.

Getter Robo Armageddon - I loved it every bit as much as I expected to. On the one hand, the story was very confusing, yet still I actually enjoyed it the most. I don't know why, I just thought it was really really cool. I loved the characters: Ryoma's badassery, Hayato's cool demeaner, Benki's smarts, and all the rest of the characters for all their own reasons. Not one character failed to impress me on some level. I especially loved the character designs, nearly everyone looked unique. Same with the robots. The music and art in general was impressive, to be honest. And of course the action was fantastic, some of the best I'd seen since Gurren Lagann. This is definitely going on my favorites list.

I watched GaoGaiGar up to episode 26 but I had to stop because the rest wasn't dubbed and the english cast does a far better job than the Japanese cast. It's a shame because it was quickly becoming one of my favorite shows.:(

Now I gotta figure out what else to watch until November when I'll resume watching Victory Gundam.

In the meantime, I'm watching Hunter X Hunter every sunday, It's such a good show that it's difficult waiting every week for the next episode, but I have no choice than to wait and just try to keep up with it.

Guillotine

Is it like Mouse trap, but instead of trapping a mouse, it cuts a guy's head off?

EDIT: Apparently I'm not far off. Me want!

It nothing else it's impossible not to appreciate some of the meta-jokes that have been born from it.

For example: If you thought the falling wiener was over the top funny before...

You know, I didn't actually find that funny before, but now...XD
1260  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Valkyria Chronicles 3 not coming to US and Europe, Sega blames you on: October 12, 2011, 04:08:30 PM
Well, I actually bought the games, so yeah. Anyways, like Kevadu said, I'm happy they made it official so I can just import the darn game...you know once I know Japanese. This ain't no Super Robot Wars we're talking about.
