I'm going to be a little selfish and say Legend of Dragoon. It was my first rpg, and even though I think it's perfect as it is I think it would be awesome to see the game with a new next-gen look. So I'm just nominating the game out of sheer nostalgia.

I agree, a LoD remake with a smoother and faster battle system would be awesome.

Breath of Fire 3 and 4
Skies of Arcadia
FF6 and 7
Arc the Lad 2

I would have to disagree on both BoF and FF titles you mentioned. Don't know about Skies of Arcadia or Arc the Lad 2 because i don't know them very well. I'm very curious what your reasoning for these choices was.

Well, I did my fair share of complaining about MK and its online mode, but I have to say that compared to this mess, MK really does it well. Tweaks are done through patches and additional content is released as non compulsory DLC that is blended into the main game through compatibility packs.

I don't play MK, but don't you run into compatibility problems if you have Patch Y and your opponent does not?  I know if you have a DLC character like Rain and your opponent hasn't downloaded the appropriate download, you can't use your DLC character against them.


If you don't own a character you can download a compatibility  pack, which allows you to play against the specific character. Worst case scenario, you cant play a DLC character in a single match. That's an inconvenience at worst, but most people will have them anyway. Bottom line, you don't need to purchase the game again every time they decide to add something. It also means the player base doesn't split with every new version. I like this model a lot more than what Capcom is doing.

I did some major grinding before I beat FFVII so my battle against Sephiroth lasted about one round. Having double summon on "Knights of the round" and three mimic materias meant that Sephiroth had just enough time to cast "shell" on himself. Hardly epic, but fairly satisfying.

While it does look like a potentially great gimmick, I can see the whole "drop in world" thing getting old and annoying fairly quickly. Still interested if it ever makes it to the PSN though.

Less than a month? Sweet, Its not my ideal game but I'm actually looking forward to it for some reason.

Seriously though, I actually found this this place to be very friendly. At least by internet standards. It's also fairly active, so there's plenty of incentive to post and check back often.

So lets see if I have this right. In the last month or so Capcom has:
- sold a game that can't be restarted
- released a stand alone disc only update to MvC3, essentially dividing the player base and making the original obsolete.
- cancelled MM Legends 3.
add some drama with Monster Hunter and we have a winner.

Impressive, someone up there knows their stuff. The nerd rage is priceless though, heck even I whined about the that Resident Evil game, and I never even intended to play it.

What? Plotholes? Look, Lightning has shiny armour, look at the armour, its shiny! Problem solved!

To me, FFXIII's story was bad because it used a bunch of confusing made up faux French terminology, that initially made no sense, to mask its shortcomings. When it all finally came together it turned out to be something simplistic and uninspired. The characters range from generic to annoying. You know something went wrong when the comedy relief comes across as the least annoying and most sensible of the bunch. I base this on roughly 15 hours of play. Maybe it gets better later on, but I stopped playing and haven't picked it up again for quite some time now.

I'm reffering to Ultimacia in general.

Didn't VIII pull a similar twist near the end? It was foreshadowed, but I'd say it still falls into the "out of it's ass" category.

Can't say you filled me with optimism. Guess Ill stick to MK for now.

"Destiny, can I choose my destiny, or is it my destiny to follow my destiny? No, I shall choose my own destiny for it is my destiny to choose my destiny! This destiny is my destiny and it is my destiny to follow my destiny that I chose to be my destiny! HAHAHAHAHA FRIENDSHIP!!"

Yep, its Final Fantasy alright.
I can't say I like what they showed of the battle system, but it does look potentially better than XIII, and that's a good start. Still not convinced but at least its on my radar now.
