the grindy, time-consuming nature of the combat.

I'm sold.

I really wished I had owned a PSOne as a kid. While I'm still glad I got a Nintendo 64 (I seriously still play all the games I have left on it from time to time, and I do need to finish Mega Man 64), I can't help but think I would've gotten into RPGs much sooner if I had more available to me than Pokemon, Paper Mario, and Digimon World.

*Sigh* The more I see, the less interested I become, but at least the question no longer burns. Quick and simple combat isn't exactly my thing (in fact, it usually kills most games for me), and gameplay's always the most important part for me. I'll see if I can pick up some of them for cheap someday, but otherwise I'll just skip out on the series for now.

Romancing Saga 2 (****ing cunts >:C)

Yeah, if they could make one like they did with the first PS2 game, I'd be set.

We only got an Xbox 360 because literally all of our friends have one. And I can certainly say I don't regret getting one, but still if it weren't for that I probably would've gotten a PS3 and I doubt I would've regretted that either. What I do need, though, are those obscure RPGs that will never come to the Xbox 360, like Hyperdimension Neptunia.

PS2
Gamecube
GBA
PSP
Nintendo DS

In case you can't tell, I loved last Gen.:) And Portable games.

I'll probably Pre-order it just so I don't forget to save up and buy it. The Tactics Ogre remake is probably my most anticipated game being released next year after Okamiden.:)

As with the P1 remake, the original opening was better.  IS for Playstation had perhaps my all time favorite game opening (especially the music) and this new one was ehh in comparison.  The original EP had a kickass opening too.

Going to have to disagree. There's lots of symbolism in this opening, especially as it shows each character individually. I love the bright colors and the female vocals towards the end. I will agree that EP had an awesome opening, though. Maybe it's just the nostalgia you attached to the original games?
I think so too. Anyway let's compare:

Original Persona opening

Persona Re-release opening  

Original Persona 2 Innocent Sin opening

Persona 2 Innocent Sin Re-release opening



I like the poem at the beginning of the original Persona's original theme (first time I had seen it) but then there's nothing else that goes on, just a slow piano tune and some scenery that has little relevence until the part at the very end. The re-release at least gave it a good song, had more going on, and offered bits from the story to keep things interesting yet followable. It still could've been better, but at least it's good enough.

Persona 2's original intro: Again, I liked the poem, and at least with this one I understood what it had to do with the rest of the story. The piano tune was also nice since it went with the poem and it lead into the second song very well, and of course, I liked both songs. When things got more heavy after the poem, at least most of it was followable and it showed scenes that would become relevent to the plot later on. You know, it just made sense.
The re-release, on the otherhand, was a clusterfuck: I couldn't keep up with the what they were showing, none of it made any sense except for when they went through a runthrough of everyone's personas, nor do I have any desire to run through it again and again until it does make sense, and the music just didn't seem to meld with the action very well.

Long story Short: I'm switching to the original intro if I can.

Has anyone ever seen anything worthwhile in those bins on the counter of old games in paper sleeves?

No.  They were just starting that initiative when I left, but it's all PS2 product with retail price of $4 or $5 or less.  The ones at my location were pretty much copies of Sports Crap®, Bargain Racing Games™, and Generic Action Titles©.  There are a couple of RPGs in that range, but it's stuff like Summoner and Wild Arms 3.

Hey now, Wild ARMS 3 isn't too shabby of a game.

Indeed. I quite liked Wild Arms 3 (though I am a bit of a fanboy for the series).

...Gamestop is the only Game store that stocks obscure games within about 100 miles of my house. I don't know whether you guys are lucky or if I'm just very unlucky.:P

Depends on if you have a Fry's or another really nice chain near by or not. Then again there seem to be far fewer of these elusive games on the 360/PS3 compared to prior generations.

I don't have any of those. We had FYE, but I think they're gone now.:( Other than that, we got Best Buy, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, and Target. Oh, and Rite-Aid has some games, too.

Choice is alright, I guess. I just don't like it when there's too many choices, and when there's no "right" choice that I have to figure out.

I'll see if I can pick up a cheap copy of Suikoden III someday, as well as Suikoden V and Tierkris.

What's with the facepalm? I'm excited about this. :) Here's the official announcement. Here's some gameplay footage as well.

Waitwaitwait...that game's actually getting localized?! Holy crap! Yet another reason why I wish I could get a PS3.:(

Also I wouldn't mind Star Ocean 1 and 2 remakes.

Didn't we already get those? I'm positive they're sitting on my shelf right now, and I don't think they're the originals.
1484  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: gamespot just got alot of semi hard to find ps2 games on: October 28, 2010, 02:49:13 PM
I have no ideaa why, but the gamespots in houston have 2x the used ps2 games they used to have.  3 I have been to all have DDS 1&2. Tales legendia and abyss.  Suikoden 4 & 5.  I even saw wild arms 5 at one.  I think thety are trying to unload their ps2 inventory.  Check it out

When was the last time you saw these games? I was just at Gamestop but never got a good look at the PS2 section. I hope I didn't miss out on my chance to get Suikoden V and Tales of the Abyss!D= I did get Wild Arms 5, though. Now I just need the 4th and the two on PSN (well, and Alter Code F and XF, but they don't look good enough to be high priority).

That new intro is pretty nice, but does it match up to the old opening?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pr4NvMeHbmc

No, I'd have to say that while the new one's pretty decent, it just doesn't match to the original intro; good thing they're going to have both on there.

The original opening was all kinds of awesome. It set the mood just right and left me wanting to find out what it all meant. I haven't seen the new one, but I'll probably switch it to the old one pretty quick. I doubt they could beat it.
