I might as well repost this here:

I'm probably gonna give Golden Sun DS a try somewhere down the road (probably the same time I give Dragon Quest IX a try...in 2020), despite not liking the first. Ironically, the only things I disliked were the very beginning (which turned me off the story entirely, and when that happens, my interest rarely comes back. The only exception was with Final Fantasy IV, and I still can't explain that one. Probably because it was still sort of difficult and charming), and of course the utter lack of difficulty and very little need to grind. The encounter rate was also annoying and I didn't care for the puzzles either, but I could've gotten over it if there was a good reason for me to care. Seriously, all GSDS needs to do is up the difficulty and tell the story better, and I'll have no quams about playing it.

what is the Ar Tonelico series all about? Is it just a vehicle for cutesy rpg-ness?

Is about this.

WTF?! Some of you actually like this garbage? Enough to call this a reason to get a PS3? Wow. Just wow.
Well yeah. It's not like NISA is going to release any games on the XBox 360 any time soon. :(

Yeah, as sad as it is.:( Ar Tonelico Qoga, Atelier Rorona, Disgaea 3 and 4, and a few others probably won't come to the 360 any time soon.:( In fact, all of the JRPGs on the PS3 appeal to me outside of The Last Rebellion. I just really like JRPGs, especially if they're weird and obscure. The only reason I got a 360 was for the non-RPGs, and I still don't regret it in that respect.

Didn't we just have a bunch of games come out?  I know I've bought like 3-4 RPG's in the past few months, and that's more than I can even play in that amount of time.  You're looking at a fairly small span of time and complaining that the genre doesn't have many releases, when if you expand the time frame even a little the number of releases more than doubles.

RPG's aren't in any more of a slump then they've been in for the last couple years.

looks to be like Dark Cloud 2 in that the first game is a piece of crap while the second one is an outright Great game.

Huh?  The first Dark Cloud was AWESOME.  I actually liked the dungeon-exploring elements a lot better then the ones in the second game, and the town-building was simpler and more easy to fool around with.

Yeah, Dark Cloud 1 wasn't bad at all. And I also agree that plenty of RPGs have come out recently, and heck, that list the OP made features more games that I have the money or time to play. If this is a slump, I hope we don't get out of it, otherwise I'm gonna go broke.=P

And I wasn't aware Ar Tonelico 3 was being localized. Better add that to my list of reasons to get a PS3.=P

Release date announced for February 15th and it looks like we're getting the cards afterall!

Grr...That's earlier than I anticipated, and I just pre-ordered it...I might want to rethink my next GS purchase tomorrow...

It pretty much is a DQ3 successor, and the only other game that plays most similar to it. Whether it's better or worse varies.

Well, that's certainly good to hear. I might pick it up when it gets cheap, then. Thank you.

Last Ranker is the spiritual successor to BoF...

Now I'm listening. *wag tail*

So was Megaman X: Command Mission.

I thought that was a Blatant Final Fantasy X rip-off with Mega Man characters inserted? That's the impression I got from playing it, at least. Not like its a bad thing, it just didn't really remind me much of BoF.

I wonder if it'll be a "retro" game like a few particular game like Cladun or Half-minute hero.

Gah, I am getting sick of these 'retro' 8-bit style games.  It was cute at first but now everyone is doing it.  I guess they all realized that making pseudo 8-bit art is actually a lot cheaper.

I was starting to think that I was the only one who was thinking these 8-bit 'throwback' games were becoming one too many.

It's fun at first, sure, but how many times can you use this concept?

If we're just talking about RPGs here, I haven't seen that many 8-bit throwbacks, just the RPG section of Half-Minute Hero, Guadia Quest in Retro Game Challenge, Breath of Death VII (a console indie game), and ClaDun (which the style didn't actually work for the game, IMO). Other than that I can't think of too many others.

Tactics Ogre and Persona 2 are day-one purchases for me, and I already have a few DS and PSP games on reserve for Christmas. Dues Ex 3 also looks good, but I've yet to finish the first two. Dragon Age 2 also requires that I get Dragon Age 1: Ultimate Edition, first, and that's assuming my computer can run it.

Otherwise, I'm too busy playing catch-up right now. RPGs can take a break for a while, just so I can get the ones I missed and finished the ones I started. These games are long, you know.
Dragon Age Origins is optimized pretty well, so you may be able to run it even on a oldish PC. My two year old laptop runs it well on mostly high settings, minus shadows and that other crap like Anti Aliasing.

At the very least I've met the minimum requirements, but I still need a better processor and Graphics card if I intend to play it on anything higher than the lowest settings. Now my only fear left is that the free flash game on the Dragon Age website will turn out to be more fun than the main game.=P

I thought 7th Dragon was by the Etrian Odyssey director?

He was working on it, yes, but he didn't make it by himself. Imageepoch was the core developer.
1405  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Quest IX on: November 18, 2010, 11:48:49 PM
Does anyone know how Dragon Quest IX compares to Dragon Warrior III? The latter was the only DQ game I really liked so far.
1406  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Linear and simple RPGs on: November 18, 2010, 11:32:56 PM
oh yeah FF13
that one is supposedly "linear and simple" to most people

I'm afraid he already has it and doesn't care for it much. There were some parts that were too complicated for him, and Chapter 11 wasn't very fun (I loved CH.11, personally, but I know my brother hated it. It was Chapter 12 and 13 that stopped me cold).
1407  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Linear and simple RPGs on: November 18, 2010, 11:08:08 PM
The PSP has plenty of What he's looking for: Hexyz Force, Brave Story, Crimson Gem Saga, Star Ocean (Kind of. It's not turn-based, but I thought it wasn't that complex), Breath of Fire III if you import, and I'm sure I'm missing a few.

What about the Breath of Fire series?

That would be nice. Also, I liked most of Imageepoch's games, so I'll be sure to check out those games they intend to publish.
