Please. FFXII was a joke in terms of both writing and pacing. And don't even get me started how badly they butchered Fran.
2208  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Is the 360 the RPG console of this generation? on: June 11, 2008, 03:31:15 PM
Perhaps Microsoft isn't trying to win over Japan, but instead gamers in the US and Europe that never owned an Xbox due to its constrictive genre of games. I dislike how people speak of Japanese games like they are made only to appeal to the Japanese audience (When it comes to sales).

The Playstation 3 definitely has some good potential in upcoming RPGs, but the 360 actually has a lineup of games that are coming out very soon instead of "To Be Announced".

The only thing it seems to be missing is quality SRPGs and Final Fantasy.

This year alone its releases are:

Lost Odyssey
Tales of Vesperia
The Last Remnant
Too Human
Fable 2
Infinite Undiscovery
Fallout 3

With some more unknown titles like that one Argonauts Greek Mythology RPG and Sacred 2.

Is it Microsoft that's pushing so many RPGs onto it's system? Or are developers jumping on board? Its just really weird with all the JRPGs considering the original Xbox had almost none. It just seems odd since it doesnt seem the JRPGs that came out already (Lost Odyssey, Blue dragon, etc) have really sold that well. Do you think stubborn PS2 RPG gamers will finally buy into an American console filled with Action games?

IIRC Eternal Sonata was canceled for PS3

Also I think it's possible for SO4 to come to PS3 as well. As for games coming out on one platform earlier, a lot of multiplatform games are made with a lead platform, then the port begins when the game is almost finished already.

The Battle system picks up more later on I'll tell you that much

That's no problem for me. For many fans I feel that story is a major enjoyment factor of any JRPG. That doesn't mean that traditional turn based gameplay isn't fun though

I don't think there's anything wrong with tradition. Games were great back then and many of those old JRPGs have withstood the test of time better than any other games.

Alright, I'd call bullshit but I'd have to ask: How far back are you talking here? Seems to me later SNES RPGs and arguably FFIV have aged very well, but what about the NES RPGs? DQ1-3 are fairly playable... On the GameBoy. I think the control scheme would put me off to the NES games now (though I dealt with the 'GO THROUGH MENU TO TALK' crap for Shining Force), and aside from that there can be some pretty heavy grinding that's cut down on nowadays in favor of more content.


I was referring to SNES era games.

Lost Odyssey does put a very solid spin on the turn based combat system though. You have a meter that depletes with the amount of damage the first row takes, and this meter can't be refilled. The lower it gets, the more vulnerable to damage your rear line takes. It also has the gauge where you press A at the right time when attacking to keep you from getting uninvolved.

I don't think there's anything wrong with tradition. Games were great back then and many of those old JRPGs have withstood the test of time better than any other games. While I'm not saying there shouldn't be innovations in the genre, I do not agree that every game should be radically new and different than what we're used to. A game should be critiqued on what it tries to do and how well it does it, NOT penalized because it isn't an action-RPG.

All in all, high budget classic-gameplay JRPGs are less and less common with every year that passes. I believe that they're still fun and should be able to exist in the gaming world.

The game is out in Japan.

Anyone have opinions?

I read that Blue Dragon DS game will have a card-battling system. :/


Actually I think the article said that there was an actual trading card game coming out.
2218  Media / Single-Player RPGs / So how would you rate TGS? on: September 26, 2007, 04:36:05 PM
I saw a lot of Lost Odyssey and Ninja Gaiden 2 footage so I'm happy.
