The PSP versions of Final Fantasy and Final Fantasy II are both under $10 each, too, just so you know.

I know this is too late, but amazon offered it for $17 as a lightning deal for Cyber Monday.

I mean I wanna get it cheap when I have money. I'm broke right now.=P Thanks for the heads up, though. It was on sale at Target on Black Friday, but I missed it, unfortunately.=(

It really is a blast. For some reason, completing useless sidequests and grinding has never been this fun. I think a part of it is the speed. The battles are fast enough that they don't ever feel tedious. I would reccomend it. Like I said, I have 60 hours on the game and I'm still going strong.

Also, I tried the final boss last night and it made it through the first two fights only to die on the last one. Back to the grinding board for now.

Good luck!

I still want to wait until it's cheap since I've never quite been fond of the Dragon Quest series (they're a patience tryer)., but I still appreciate the recommendation.=)

First of, A&RPGl and, you picked 3 very good games to start with.=) Secondly, I recommend Jeanne D'Arc and Hexyz Force. And I'll be a deviant and also recommend Final Fantasy 1 and Final Fantasy 2, Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 and Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep. Crimson Gem Saga and Hexyz Force are both on Sale right now, so if you're interested, they certainly won't break your bank if you get them today.

On sale where?

Oh, on sale on the Playstation Store, available right from your own PSP.=)

I'll probably do the same with NMH1, too.

That, on the other hand, would be a mistake. The improvement isn't as huge, and it has been debated which of the two is better. That, and it really is something you need to experience for yourself.

I'm afraid the gameplay doesn't really appeal to me. It seems like an interesting experiment, but everything I've read points to it being, well, not very fun, and I'm afraid gameplay is very important to me. Moreso than a few jokes and an interesting story, especially in an action game. I appreciate your sentiment, but unless the story is unfollowable, I think I'll stick to the game that removed the randomly placed jobs and the horrible, empty overworld sections.=P

Damnit, you guys have achieved the impossible and made me want this game.=(

It's worth keeping in mind that while AC1 probably isn't bad when gotten for cheap (shouldn't be hard these days) if you want to get to the good part you'll want to skip it. Especially since the biggest issue people have is how damn tedious it gets.

Yeah, that's why I never got Assassin's Creed 1. If its story is important to Assassin's Creed 2, I'll look it up, I don't think it's worth playing from the looks of it. I'll probably do the same with NMH1, too.
1479  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: No one hitting AssCreed: B? on: November 28, 2010, 11:19:24 PM
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.
1481  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Golden Sun Dark Dawn in 10 days on: November 28, 2010, 08:50:35 PM
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.
1482  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: No one hitting AssCreed: B? on: November 28, 2010, 06:03:52 PM
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.
1485  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.
