Oh yeah, PS3 definitely has some solid exclusive games on the RPG front. I'm not sure how exclusive Disgaea 3 and FFXIII Versus will be but I don't think anyone will really be dissatisfied with the console especially with more and more RPGs becoming multi platform.

I actually remember an interview with some of the old Square developers. They took huge risks on who they put in charge when they were making their SNES/PSX RPGs. With some games they were trying radically new stuff, they were making games in their own image, not to who they thought the games would appeal to. However in modern days the games have to appeal to the audience. It was Sakaguchi who was talking about Square-Enix once, who said games can't be built on dreams anymore. And it's completely true. Look at Final Fantasy XII, the two added on characters were Vaan and Penelo, two characters that Square-Enix knew would appeal to the fanbase.

I think I made a thread like this a year ago. But yeah, I think right now the 360 is your best bet for console RPGs, especially due to FFXIII becoming multiplatform.  The PS3 and 360 each have their own shining gems though. I do think in time the weight will be balanced out, assuming that games become multiplatform later on ie Eternal Sonata style.

That's what guides are for those. In those games, a lot of them are actually easy, just having you be in the right places at the right time. V is technically the toughest since those involve somewhat lenghty quests for most of them.

I almost always stay away from guides unless im having an extreme hell of a time beating a boss or something to that nature. I'll try to hunt the first Suikoden down and give it a shot, though.
2210  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGs with City Building/development? on: December 08, 2008, 09:32:49 PM
I'm kind of scared of playing Suikoden. I heard there are countless people to recruit, and that you can miss a lot of them. Is this true? I'm kidn of an RPG completionist.
2211  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: RPGs with City Building/development? on: December 08, 2008, 01:21:09 PM
Thanks guys :D

I played Actraiser before when I was younger, how could I forget!

I'm getting a Wii this week so I will definitely check out My Life as a King. The Dragon Quest VII one sounds really cool too.

I loved Azure Dreams, Digimon World, and even Dark Cloud. I've always loved the idea of grinding out for things other than new abilities and gear. I know this is really uncommon for most RPGs, but for some reason it's really appealing to see the fruits of sweet sweet labor.

Do any of the Harvest Moon RPGs do this? I'd like some recommendations!
2213  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: whats new with mistwalker? on: December 06, 2008, 02:18:37 AM
I think Blue Dragon was a good game. It's one of the more strategic, challenging, and engaging games with the hard mode DLC. I think it get sa bad rap because of how boring and easy it is on normal setings. The gameplay simply falls through without the DLC, but too little too late i guess.
2214  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: I think I become delusional when I play FFTA2. on: December 06, 2008, 02:16:28 AM
Oh sweet. So It wont matter if I skip the PSX and GBA games.

They all take place in the FF12 world right?
2215  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: I think I become delusional when I play FFTA2. on: December 04, 2008, 03:07:33 AM
Is FFTA2 related to the first two at all? Im thinking of playing it but I dont want to miss out on backstory
2216  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What modern JRPGs use dual audio? on: December 03, 2008, 09:28:23 PM
edit:  Oh, and Lost Odyssey did. 

Oh yeah Lost Odyssey had about 6 voice tracks
2217  Media / Single-Player RPGs / What modern JRPGs use dual audio? on: November 29, 2008, 10:29:21 PM
I know Blue Dragon offered both languages, as well as Odin Sphere. I found the Japanese tracks to be better in both of those, just a personal preference. What are some other last gen / current gen RPGs that offer this feature?

And please, no sub vs dub argument. Some people simply have preferences.
2218  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What are the best versions of the Final Fantasy games? on: November 05, 2008, 04:33:40 AM
Thanks for all the replies guys. Sorry for not clarifying but the reason I am skipping X is because I played it just last year, as well as XII. I never finished XII but got about 50 hours and got REALLY burned out on the game.

I will see if I can stand the load times of the PSX version of the first two. I decided for 3-5 I will wait for DS remakes and probably play the GBA version of 6 (Is it getting a DS remake too?). For 7 and 8 I will play the PC version, and for 9 its PSX all the way.

Time to hunt down a FF1/2 Disc.
2219  Media / Single-Player RPGs / What are the best versions of the Final Fantasy games? on: October 25, 2008, 02:42:05 AM
I'm going to go through 1 to 9, skip 10 and 11, play X-2, MAYBE play XII.

My question is, what are the best versions of the games? Should I stick to the GBA versions of 4/5/6, or wait for the DS remakes? Not sure how much I love the 3d style. And which versions of 1 and 2 will keep me from getting pissed off at the archaic gameplay?

Also, are there any other good Final Fantasy spinoffs out there? I know of Tactics Series and Crystal Chronicles Series. I want to play Dirge of Cerberus but it's unbearable, and I don't have a PSP for Crisis Core sadly.
