Thanks for the replies.  I'll give it a shot and see how the first dozen episodes go.  Only thing that I foresee really pissing me off is a 13 year old main character.  We'll see how it goes.  Thanks.

The main character is disturbingly mature for his age, and a lot of what he's done so far either make sense, or would make sense if he was 30. And I think he even has a wife and kid, too, but I'll have to check up on that. "They're just friends", but that doesn't explain the kid...

Fucken A!  Loved the early press when the game first came out in Japanland.

I agree about the old box art haha

Can't wait to play.  And sorry, Ive been outta the loop, but I thought they released another Legend of Heroes (a more recent title)

They released 3 games a ways back, but the developer is also responsible for the Ys series, which have been released recently.

Man, I need to play Tactics Ogre...

its not the graphics its the shitty antiquated gameplay thats the problem. ALL of the gba fire emblems are better than the DS ones.
Explain, please.

what is there to explain? the gba FE's have more classes and better looking animations theres various omissions. plus MY UNIT sucks ass if you only want to make a female unit.

Hence why this isn't Fire Emblem 11. Personally, I'd just adjust my expectations. So wat if it's worse than the GBA Fire Emblems thanks to some omissions, which are due to the fact that it's an old game? Does that stop it from being good or at least decent?

Xenoblade pretty much plays like every MMORPG out there. Why people are so excited about it ? I thought JRPG fans hate single player MMO.

I DID enjoy FFXII a lot actually, the bigger problem with 'single player MMO' is when you take some of the worst aspects (grinding for items to pass a quest) without some of the best (large, well developed world). At worst I don't see Xenoblade taking only the worst there, and I certainly don't see it being as much of a time sink. Then again it's not like I'm limiting my game interests to JRPGs here either.

Yeah, if they can come up with an interesting world, which all the videos I've seen seem to focus on, I can see Xenoblade being very enjoyable.

I'm amazed at the hype, personally.  Like Dragon Quest, I find these titles to be too plain and based on too many archetypes to be interested in them.

The phrase, "cliched, but well done," is how I would describe Lunar: SSSC. Even though the characters are super-archtypal, they're very well done. Between the anime cut scenes and the voice acting, you really got to know them much more inimately than most other RPGs.

That and the humor sums up my reasons for enjoying Lunar: The Silver Star.

I'd also like to note that I played Lunar and FF for the first time two years ago, and I still enjoyed them.

Advance Wars is one of the best console tactics games.  You missed out if you're calling it average.. putting it in the same category as grindea factory trash is just sad.  Also note that Advance Wars is not an SRPG.. neither are a bunch of other games people have listed in this thread, but I haven't felt like pointing them all out.

Front Mission 4 is good if you like party management/customization.. so if you claim to be a tactics fan you should have enjoyed it more.. although that depends on your level of skill.  I've found that skill plays a pretty big role in whether someone likes FM4.. that and whether they like customizing and min/maxing mech configurations.

Check out www.tbstactics.com if you're a tactics fan.

I love Advance Wars. I also enjoyed Front Mission 4, though I think I would've prefered Front Mission 3 and Front Mission 1.

As much as many may hate the Working Design's translations. The Sega cd and PlayStation Working Designs scripts made "Lunar the Silver Star" one of my favorite rpgs.

I loved the Translation, at least in the first game, even if the humor didn't always feel like it belonged. It lightened up a story that would've been too boring if it was actually trying to take itself seriously.

I haven't seen V Gundam, but if it's anything like Zeta Gundam then I can only give a mixed review. Sometimes the show is spot on, others it falls falt or is overly dramatic. Also, Zeta Gundam is fucking long. 50 episodes is a lot for a show that doesn't keep a consistent stride. I have five episodes to go before I'm done, but I can say the latter half was more enjoyable the former.

That sums up my opinion of Victory Gundam, but so far I think Zeta had a better overall excecution. It is getting better, though, and it hasn't plodded as much as Zeta tends to do. I think...

I have a Wizardry Collection that I haven't spent much time with. Maybe I'll play some more of that.

Got to World 6-3 in super Mario Bros., the furthest I've ever gotten. =) And now I'm being tempted by Etrian Odyssey, but I wanna save it all for EO3 on Xmas.

if you think the graphics in any of the gba fire emblems are shoddy the DS ones are worse. only a blind hardcore fan could like the DS FE's.

Or a casual fan who can appreciate it for being a good game and not let things like graphics or story get in the way of that.
1332  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Wizardry on the PS3 on: December 04, 2010, 12:15:39 PM
Yeah, a user on another forum brought that to my attention. I so wish it would get ported to the West, seeing as how I can't understand Japanese.

I ABHORRED Tactics Advance and A2.  They didn't do the original any justice and the law system was awful.  The story was pitiful.

FFTA didn't even have a story.

And it was still substantially more coherent than the original FFT.

ice burn

Well, it kinda did have a story, it was just easy to ignore, not counting that obnoxiously long and slow intro. Ugh, take that out, and FFTA would've been quite a bit better, IMO.

Is V Gundam worth my time?  Did a little research; can't tell.  I know some people here love Gundam so I wouldn't mind a few opinions.

I might as well toss in my opinion. I only watched 3 episodes, but that's as much as I could stand. I was marathoning the entire meta-series at the time, so that might explain it. It was only a few months ago, though. I'll watch some more tomorrow and see. I remember it being too overly dramatic, like there was bad stuff happening at every turn, and it was very heavyhanded with its themes, but we'll see. SRW got me somewhat interested, to say the least, so I have some motivation to watch it again.

Phantasy Star Universe was my First, at least the first that I got into. My real first was either Runescape or Furcadia, neither of which suited my tastes at all. I liked it a lot when I first played it, but I never spent that many hours on it since I got yelled at for playing it into the wee hours of the night.=P I prefer Phantasy Star Online and Final Fantasy XI now, and spent a lot of my free time on them way back when.
