I love DMC1 and DMC3 dearly.  Hated DMC2 like everyone.  Haven't played DMC4, mostly out of fear that it'll ruin my memories of 1 and 3. 

I actually like Ninja Theory's first two games.  Heavenly Sword and Enslaved are near-perfect rentals: pretty to look at, some stylish action, under 8 hours of playtime.  Like a vapid popcorn flick, they're fun once and then mostly forgettable.  Can DmC be good and fit that description?  Yes.  Am I interested in the game and want to play it?  Will I buy it right when it comes out? No. 

...does Vergil looks like he belongs in the Hitler Youth?  Yes.  He puts the SS in SSStylish.

HEY - soccer moms eventually produced the likes of Alex Morgan and Hope Solo.  There are a few lookers in that group somewhere. 

And I'm not saying I love the one-dimensional NPCs of old Zelda.  I just... don't want or need all this dialogue.  If they had cut the number of villagers by 75% or so but kept Zelda and Midna's parts the same then I wouldn't be complaining. 

...game's still pretty good.  Forest Temple and Goron Mines weren't exactly transcendent, but they were better than adequate for the first two dungeons.

They'll find a way, whether they incorporate new characters into the current story or make a The Answer-esque epilogue starring the new additions, because A) P4A has done outrageously well both in sales and in Japanese arcades and B) ASW and Atlus care far more about potential sales than they do about the integrity of P4A's narrative.

Look, not sure if you guys understand how ASW operates - ASW subscribes to the 1990s Capcom school of fighting game re-releases.  Guilty Gear has only had 3 true sequels - X, XX, and Isuka.  XX alone has had six VERSIONS come out (vanilla, #reload, slash, accent core, accent core plus, accent core plus R), with each one introducing new characters, new story details, gameplay wrinkles, and balance changes.  BlazBlue just had its third version announced and they do similar things.  ASW might not make P4A2, but they will totally make P4A!@#$%^&* or something.

Is it just me, or does Twilight Princess have too many characters?  Seriously, I've only beaten the second big dungeon, and we already have almost two dozen NPCs with names and personalities, including some children that Link's had to rescue three or four times.  I... kinda don't like this.  I would prefer to be thrown into the action with less prompting and dialog.  I want Zelda to be... more like Dark Souls and less like Dragon Age.

The most powerful character in the series is Cless, by about eight longshots.  When another character can perform teleportation combos and equip three types of heavy weapons, then it's up for discussion again. 

I'm surprised at all the Abyss love.  I guess I wasn't as enchanted by the cast as much as the rest of you guys.  I do think it's better than Symphonia, but not as good as Phantasia PS1, Destiny PS2, or Vesperia.

Yeah, now that I'm getting into the dungeon-talk-field-cave-field-dungeon-etc. rhythm of the game it's getting a lot better.  I kind of think TP lacks the balls of WW in that it's a return to more traditional Zelda when WW did so many new and interesting things, but I'm definitely having fun with it so far. 

(for the record, I played WW for the first time earlier this year and liked it a lot)

Unite has quests up to HR9, which I think is 11 or 12 stars. 

I've soloed every monster in Unite, but some of them are so hard and require multiple deaths that it isn't even fun to solo them (dual Rajang, the different Fatalis).  I've made all the weapons and armor I want to make, so right now if we decide to hunt me and my buds just try to collect rares for weird weapons and try goofy shit nowadays (i.e. beating dual Gold/Silver Rath with two hunting horns and a bow).  Haven't fired it up since the spring, though, and I can't use Ad-hoc Party because of the worse internet at my new place.

Twilight Princess isn't half bad now that it's gone beyond doing chores for village folk and jumping when Midna says jump.
745  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Favorite "Tales of" Game and why? on: August 09, 2012, 11:19:22 PM
I've played through and beaten Phantasia (multiple versions), Eternia (PSP), Symphonia (GC), Legendia (PS2), and Innocence (DS).  I've played parts of several others.  From what I can tell, Vesperia has the best battle system, but Phantasia has my favorite main quest and characters.  I have to say that the PS1 version of Phantasia is my favorite in the series (I haven't played the PSP version, but I would really like to).

Update

Current Backlog
Radiant Historia
Mass Effect
Grandia II
The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
Red Dead Redemption
Star Ocean: Second Evolution
Persona 3 FES
Deathspank: Thongs of Virtue
Final Fantasy XII
Super Mario Galaxy

Valkyria Chronicles
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess

I'm torn about FF XII.  There are lots of cool ideas in place, and I was having a ****ing blast for the first 20-30 hours.  Then the frustrations and nitpicks started piling up, the story took several weird, abrupt turns, and in the end I felt like I had played a game of wasted potential.  I wish it was less broken and more fleshed out. 

DeathSpank 2 was meh.  I mean, it was funny, but uninteresting from a design perspective and sometimes it was too silly/puerile.  Liked the ending, though. 

Super Mario Galaxy was ****ing awesome.  I haven't enjoyed a Mario game this much in a LONG damn time.  Best game I've played on the Wii, and totally worth a revisit for additional stars down the line. 

In the *very* early stages of Twilight Princess right now, which seems to be a game about herding goats and walking behind pregnant women slowly.  Hopefully it picks up.  Valkyria Chronicles is in my PS3, but I haven't fired it up yet.  I will soon.  Probably.

I actually think Gau is one of the top three most powerful/useful characters in FF VI.  True story. 

My best Final Fantasy memory is probably seeing the opera in FF VI for the first time.  Wasn't expecting that.  When you regain control of Locke I was actually disappointed, because I wanted it to keep going. 

Worst?  Probably when I played FF Tactics for the first time and I discovered the second area where you can't leave between story battle sequences (the castle where you fight Velius/Belias).  I was so distressed by my inability to take a break for leveling up (Velius was kicking my ass) that I was reduced almost to tears and considered restarting the game.  FF Tactics is one of my all-time favorite games now, but for awhile I was incredibly pissed off about that.  Gotta keep two save files.

Still working on blog review for Final Fantasy XII, and I just got my 60th star in Super Mario Galaxy.  Tomorrow evening I'll try and finish it off.

Code:
is never explicitly mentioned in P3, but it's implied that there was a mysterious force influencing the actions of Mitsuru's grandfather prior to the events of the game; it sounds like exactly what
in the events of P1 and P2.

I LOVE FF V geomancers.  Terrain! is one of the most underrated skills in the game. 

Currently browsing through a bunch of DS games I downloaded, most of them out-of-region.  Inazuma Eleven seems to have piracy protection, though.... :*(
