I LOVE this game. It's a bit short by the looks of it. I probably have 6 hours into it and am 40% done, but it well deserves the good ratings it's getting.

I'm amazed at the amount of people that bought it, but don't wanna play it because they played the old version already. lol

I wish there were more RPG's at least partially set in the real/modern world like this. I think the first time I experienced it was Earthbound and it was a nice break from the usual fantasy setting (which I love, but it's overused). Ni No Kuni has some modern world interaction as does this. This game is blowing my mind. Don't wanna put it down.

Yeah, thbis game looks better than most PS3 games. In the beginning there I just walked around the town looking at the background scenery. Sooo much detail.

Nope. I know how weird you guys can get with already posted material and I couldn't believe there wasn't a topic already either. I searched all fancy-like numerous times too, so just posted a new one. lol

I am an idiot. lol

Been hearing nothing but good things about these games, decided to pick up this one for the Vita. I hope it's good... can't tell because for some damn reason when it asks in the beginning to type in your last name, it does nothing. Anyone run across this problem?

I don't know if it's because I haven't played a true JRPG in a long time or not, but the 5 or so hours I've put into this game so far seems to be the funnest 5 hours I've put into a JRPG, ever. I was bound to like it anyway simply because Studio Ghibli was doing the art/animation, but wow... the beautiful art and graphics aside, the game excels in every area. The familiar apsect scared me, but it's not really like Pokemon at all. Having a modern word to go to is nice (and rare). The ways they utitlize magic outside fo comabt is awesome, as is the ability to not only feed and strengthem your familiars but to arm them with weapnms and armor as well. About as perfect game as I can think of. Pretty deep too... 5 hours in and I still don't really know how to use items or heal while in battle... I guess you have to switch back to Oliver to do these things?

Switch to Oliver, and scroll over to Provisions. You can also go to Spells and cast healing touch.

I just got a familiar that can heal when he levels up a bit too. That adds all kinds of strategy to it. most RPG's I just wait until I'm down to about 10% health and then heal before attacking again. Here you have to take into account that you have to switch characters and the enemies are still attacking. I find myself healing earlier than I would normal heal.

One thing this game doesn't have that a lot of other JRPG's  do are those long awkward pauses during conversation where sometimes characters say half of what they are going to say... stare blankly... then finish. Did Ghibli write this game too? Because the dialog seems to flow better than other Level 5 games.

I love my WiiU. Mario is awesome and the thing is great for looking up podcasts on the controller and watching them on the screen. I'd buy this system even if it was just for Zelda. Kinda odd an HD port of an existing game is going to take that long though.
41  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ni No Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch on: January 25, 2013, 09:58:26 PM
Anyone but me noticing that using Oliver is never the wise thing to do? Whenever I use him instead of one of the familiars he gets his ass whooped. Is there ever a time when you can have more than one person in battle?

I forgot I pre-ordered this eons ago and just got an email from Amazon saying it will be here tomorrow. Anyone heard any buzz on the game yet? I see no reviews, even though it came out yesterday technically. The gameplay I saw on YouTube looked great. This style of game is about the only kind I can play anyomore when it comes to turn-based combat.
44  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Silent Hill: Book Of Memories for PS Vita is an RPG? on: October 21, 2012, 09:42:58 AM
How would this game be as a single player game? I have a lot of gaming friends, but none own the Vita. I want to get this, but would it be too difficult as a single player game or too ho-hum?

i think the barrier of entry is just higher for an rpg vs fps or whatever else.

I don't think I agree. An FPS is out of my comfort zone and every time I pick one up, I make myself look like an idiot. I'm sure I would get better at it if I played games from that genre more often. And I might, if I find that one FPS that pulls me in. I'm sure it's the same with RPG's. Find that one game and you're set.

My brother got started with Suikoden back when he didn't consider himself a gamer. I have absolutely no idea why he picked that game. It was 2001, you'd think it would look old and boring compared to some of the fancier 3D games. He just did. Ten years later, he's played most of the series, but he still can't pronounce the title correctly.

My sister is an even better example. She's not a gamer, no one would ever consider he a gamer. I don't think she knows what a RPG is and I doubt she'd be interested enough to learn. But sometimes she gets bored, really bored. She'll look through my games, pick something she's never heard of and play for hours on end. She got halfway through Lufia II within a matter of days because she felt like it. Two years later, she does the same with Breath of Fire II. Then Atelier Iris. She hasn't had many of these cravings since I moved out, but if my full collection was still within arms reach, I'd probably find her playing something like Etrian Odyssey or Sakura Taisen.

I was the same way. I've been gaming since the Atari 2600 days and since the NES came around I played almost nothing but RPG's. Friends got into FPS games and I held out for a few more years. I did get into them though. First playing Bioshock. I got that because it was touted as mostly an RPG, but it had FPS controls. So it helped me. Then I got Left 4 Dead and that really helped because it's not just you, it's you and your friends working together so they can help you along until you get the hang of it. Now I love both genres, and especially games like Borderlands that combine the 2.
