So far I'm glad I trusted rpgfan's review, it is an appropriate score IMO.

There are definitely some annoyances, but it far undermines the actual enjoyable experience.

Yes the story does not make sense, either that or it does make sense but it's just way too hard for me to understand.  With that said, it's not like it's poorly told.  The story is all over the place, but in terms of presentation I don't see it poorly done at all.  Plus I read a lot of reviews saying that the NPCs, etc. have poorly drawn faces and models, etc.  I did not have that feeling at all and even at times I thought the designs were actually very well done.  The music is pretty good too, not spectacular or anything but so far pretty good.

I caved and bought the game last night.

Played all last night, so far I actually like the game, it's pretty fun.  I can't say the same for post-game content, only if i can get there first.  But so far so good, I like the fact that everything is difficult! LOL

Anything can still happen, but if it succeeds, this is one hell of a comeback. I'm looking forward to this and Darkest Dungeon (which met its goal before 24 hours).

Wow the darkest dungeon looks really interesting, thanks for this.

Man if this game actually gets the green light, I'm gonna be so anxious to hear the music in this game!!

just posted a thread on gamefaqs as well, curious to see what the consensus there says.

nope, does the demo have gameplay in it? I thought it was just the dressing aspect of it.  I mean i'm familiar with 10-2 and the game-play was good enough for me to overlook the story of it, and I enjoyed the game without getting involved in the story too much.

With that being said I can't say the same for Disgaea D2, why I bring this up is because IGN scored this game in the 90's but rpgfan's score more accurately described the score, somewhere around 70 which I agree with.  The correlation is that RPGfan scored lightning returns higher than every site which has a review of this game, but I tend to trust rpgfan's score a lot more.  So kinda thinking this game might be better than what is being put out there.


Btw I don't hate square-enix or anything, haha just for reference.

hahahah well said well said, wow thank you for the hasty reply, love the honesty.  I will probably get some yoshinoya now while I continue to try and make a decision.  Would love to hear more thoughts, thanks in advance.

So for those that are playing lightning returns ATM, I've been on the fence for days now about purchasing a digital copy, and although I read the review on the site, I'm still going to ask anyone that's currently playing it.... is it a decent game?

IMO, just for reference
FF 13: mediocre game
FF 13-2: mediocre game, but better than FF 13

Creator of Flappy Bird takes the app down. Says he can't cope with it anymore.

Also, first world problems


Wow that is just... This makes me want to delete my FB and instagram accounts, seriously.  Privacy is a luxury now.

noted, sorry

Wow i'm impressed. That gameplay looks really good & looks exactly like xenoblade, and the graphics are so detailed.
12  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What would your ultimate RPG be on: February 13, 2014, 01:33:29 AM
For me it's mainly the use of the characters, a mature/sensible/compelling/intriguing plot or story, and replayability via various SENSIBLE endings (not like where flans ruling the entire world..)

Characters: I wish RPGs implemented the fact ALL characters needed to be taken care of (equipped properly, leveled up properly).  My favorite parts of FF 6, were the times where you had to split up the party and use ALL your characters (the mog intro, the time where everyone re-unites to protect narshe, and that cave in the 2nd half of the game where you can't use smoke bombs and you have to split up your parties).

The Suikoden series kinda did that a littttle bit, but not nearly to the level I would have liked.

Battles: A mix of Chrono Trigger's use of combining skills (It actually makes you think who you put in the party, instead of just over leveling your favorite characters) w/ the Saga game's learning abilities/leveling up system.  These two series have the best battle systems, IMO.  Further more both of these games usually have multiple endings, although I wouldn't call all of them sensible & intriguing, which I wish I could.

I think you've already stated most (DA, xenoblade), It's hard to think of anything remotely close.

Maybe the Last Remnant?

The grudge that people can develop with Square games are like wounds that never heals.

HAHA well said.  I hope they don't die out, they are my childhood, literally.  But man... the direction that they are going with the series right now, it's crazy.  Personally I'm finding myself currently making the switch to western rpgs > jrpgs, but it still saddens me.

It felt like how men see women act than how women would actually act with other women:

I mean, look at this crap...


Umm that is absolutely ridiculous, that is normally how all women would act when they relaxing in a hot spring...

No but seriously, yeah the story was pretty bad, haha.  Sorry not "too girly" but just "not my personal taste" there weee go.
