My theory is that only people who played the first game directly after it's release (and the glorious hype train) felt really burned. I played it last fall, and while I saw it's faults, I didn't really find anything hateable about it. I think if it hadn't been hyped to death, people would have played it for what it was, and generally said, "oh, this game is kind of cool, a bit repetitive, but some really interesting things". Instead it's, "OMG this game isn't the second coming of Pizza Jesus the Third!" I dunno, maybe I'm wrong, but I really had some fun with it, far removed from it's initial hype. No question the second was far better and improved (instant GOTY material), though.

You also paid way, way less than they did. Even if they had realistic expectations they still paid $60 for the game, and if they didn't feel they got their $60 worth of entertainment they're going to be disgruntled.

I have that problem with a lot of game's nowadays.  They take so long to make for just 20 hours of gameplay, and ringing in at $60-$70.  I like a lot games with extra options and play modes.

More replayability would be preferable over length, yes. I miss Game+ and hidden secrets that you could miss on your first playthrough that netted you awesome rewards. Does Assassin's Creed have those?

Got the game in the Indie Pack for $5 yesterday. It's fucking awesome so far.

Got that, too. Haven't played it yet, but it's on my to-do.

My problem is that, judging from the reviews, Dark Dawn still has all of the problems that the first game did: low difficulty, slow beginning, too much text, too many random battles, etc. I'm sure there'll be plenty that won't mind that, but those problems were the main reasons Golden Sun failed hard for me. I'll still give it a chance someday, but it doesn't sound like an insta-buy just yet.

Bought it for my bro for Xmas, will probably play some of it, too.

Those are the best type of gifts. :P
Bought FFX for my brother... he moved out and it's still here haha

Funny, I've been trying to convince my bro to play that very game.

Yeah, the loli/moe/other-fake-Japanese-word characters in Criminal Girls aren't doing it for me, either. I'll probably avoid it if it ever comes to the states.
1372  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Is it worth Playing These Series in Order? on: November 27, 2010, 07:12:12 PM
Assassin's Creed II is the one I'm most interested in, so I'll play that before I play Brotherhood (but I'll still get Brotherhood first, since it's for my brother), thanks.

Anyways, thanks all, you helped me sort out that little issue. So I'll set aside No More Heroes 2 for now (unless I grab NMH1 tomorrow). I'm planning to play through all of my unfinished Wii games, so that was an important issue to clear up.

I never cared for the Dawn of Souls version of FF1, the NES version is more my style. I'd even get the PSOne version if they'll ever finally rerelease it so I can have it without loadtimes. DoS had a great version of FF2, though.
1374  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Is it worth Playing These Series in Order? on: November 27, 2010, 04:16:31 PM
Odin Sphere and Muramasa aren't a series.

S&P aren't connected with each other at all, far as I can tell.

No More Heroes should probably be played in order, I haven't played the second but I hear there's some jokes in the second that reference the first.

Don't play Assassin's Creed.

First one: Oh, right, forgot that. =P
Second: Didn't know that, thanks for the heads up
Third: Also didn't know that, I'll try to find a copy of NMH1. Thank you.
Fiurth: I threw that in last minute anyways.=P I'll probably grab Brotherhood for my brother since he said he liked it.
1375  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy: Case Zero - The Heroes of Zardoz Marathon on: November 27, 2010, 03:01:33 PM
Well I'm probably going to do an all handheld marathon here I think.

I,II on PSP but I'll probably get the component cord
III and IV on DS
V will probably be the only one on psx since there isn't another release
VI on gba/ds




Does anyone know if you can install psx games onto the ps3 to cut down load times?

Final Fantasy V Advance on the Gameboy Advance, which was released on all regions, is available. Hell, I'll mail you my copy if you really can't find it/it's mucho expensive.

Speaking of which, I'll be ordering FF6 Advance once I have the cash to burn.
1376  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: JRPGs starting to become all about stripping? on: November 27, 2010, 02:35:18 PM
Yeah, I don't find it to be a problem in most games, and they're even pretty funny when done right (IMO). Once it starts hampering the gameplay, then I'll complain.
1377  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Is it worth Playing These Series in Order? on: November 27, 2010, 02:02:38 PM
Is it worth playing these series in order:

Assassin's Creed series

Sin & Punishment 1 & 2

No More Heroes 1 & 2

Odin Sphere and Muramasa

I kinda just wanna play the sequels first, but would I have any story or adjustment problems playing them out of order?
1378  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Radiant Historia on: November 27, 2010, 12:04:14 PM
Looks fucking sweet. I hope Atlus publishes more than 3 copies, because I can't afford this until the summer.

Yeah, same here, especially with all the other good handheld games coming out next year.
1379  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy: Case Zero - The Heroes of Zardoz Marathon on: November 26, 2010, 03:14:14 PM
Funny, I've never had much of a problem with the load times in FF8, FF9, or much of any game, for that matter.
1380  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy: Case Zero - The Heroes of Zardoz Marathon on: November 25, 2010, 11:58:22 PM
Oh, this is the thread for the Marathon. I thought it was another Fan game.@_@ Count me in! I can start in...well, now, I'm already playing through the first, though I'd need to put the Wii in my room again.
