2281  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Square-Enix Press Conference on: May 10, 2007, 10:31:32 AM
Ooo I'm really curious to which console the new Star Ocean game will come out on. Why are they keeping it a secret? Maybe it will be multiplatform? Or the Wii?
2282  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Final Fantasy IV remake for DS on: May 09, 2007, 11:58:23 PM
I'm soo happy they're remaking it. I have held out on playing the GBA Version since I sold my DS Phat.

I'll just get this one instead. I can't wait to play the game that revolutionized RPGs forever :D

Quote from: "Dade"
Squeenix is going downhill.....

You just noticed? They've been milking the cash cow for ages now. They'll think up anything, do a half assed job, and slap Final Fantasy on it. I haven't been satisfied with a Final Fantasy game since the merger, and can't be bothered to beat FFX-2 or FFXII.

Also, why is the PSP such a huge dumping ground for RPGs? You would think more developers would make the jump over to the DS by now.

The Last Remnant

Spring 2008 - Next Generation Consoles - 1 Player RPG

One thousand years ago humanity came into contact with Remnants. These magical fragments of a bygone era were once used to promote peace across the world. Soon, as the rift grew between those who ruled and those who obeyed, the remnants ceased being instruments of balance, and instead became paths to immeasurable power. Where once there had been peace, only bloodshed remained.

- Released simultaneously in U.S. and Japan

-Two prominent characters each created to appeal to a specific territory. Rush Sykes will appeal to JP gamers, and "The Conqueror" for Western Audiences. Game won't force you to choose which character you play.

- Remnants vary in size and can take the form of machines, beasts, and weapons.

- 4 races revealed: Mitra (humans), Yama (Large fish-like beings), Qsiti (small humanoid lizards), Sovanni (four armed cat like creatures)

- Battle System will not be passive and will include QTEs in certain instances. Fights still take place in a turn based frame work.

- This is the first UE3 game SE will be releasing. Graphics look great so no worries there.
2285  Media / Single-Player RPGs / New Eternal Sonata/Trusty Bell Trailer and scans (56k=no) on: May 04, 2007, 05:54:00 PM
Not the 1up Show had a piece on Eternal Sonata. Shane said it looked like an Xbox 1 game while another guy said it was beautiful. Also there's a few musical minigames and they require you to be able to read musical notes, so start researching.

The Voice Acting is honestly poor. I'll probably enjoy the game, but I'm going to feel a bit ripped off for $60 with that kind of crappy localization. There's no talk about Japanese voices being included yet, but with Namco-Bandai's history, I sincerely doubt they will be.

Thanks Dorkus.

I hope the small jRPG fanbase on the 360 doesn't turn their heads to this game!
2287  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Dragon Quest IX battle system revealed on: May 02, 2007, 12:19:19 PM
Aw, Square-Enix succumbs to their fans way too often these days. I was hoping for something really unique!

So does this mean there's no more multiplayer?
2288  Media / Single-Player RPGs / A new Star Ocean? on: May 01, 2007, 09:25:39 PM
I thought Tri-Ace was already busy with a big game. Can they handle two projects at once?

I wonder what console it will be on, hopefully not a Sony Platform (Only because I don't own one yet, :D)
2289  Media / Single-Player RPGs / what kinds of character design appeal to you? on: April 30, 2007, 08:24:32 PM
I dont have a favourite type of character design, I really like to be surprised by the character and the thoughts and creativity of whoever designs them, and how they evolve through the story.
2290  The Rest / General Discussions / Nintendo buys Monolith Soft on: April 29, 2007, 12:17:54 AM
Monolith is already making a game for Nintendo, it's called Disaster Day of Crisis, where you are a guy running around saving people under different circumstances

Quote from: "Eusis"

If it helps about getting an X360, this game's coming to PS3 too. If you were planning on getting that and didn't have sufficent interest in Blue Dragon/Lost Odyssey/Mass Effect/whatever else, then don't worry about it.

The game is currently a 360-only title, but that may change in the future, who knows, it may be a timed exclusive like Virtua Fighter 5, RE4, etc.

Alot of people suspect it's an exclusive bought by Microsoft though to help the 360 get RPG gamers to buy it as well as Japanese gamers, since they're packaging the game with 360's as a special bundle in Japan. The rumor that it's coming to the PS3 was from ESRB putting the game up as T for Teen and listing it under both consoles. If you check the site however you will notice that they took the listing down.
2292  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Best RPG based on writing quality, alone... on: April 26, 2007, 02:56:36 PM
I don't know if this counts as an RPG, but Dreamfall: The Longest Journey had excellent writing and story.

2294  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Final Fantasy 3 has all the charm that so many RPGs miss on: April 16, 2007, 02:41:10 PM
I agree completely that RPGs shouldnt have a factor of challenge. What the hell, why even have combat in an RPG at all? We can just bake cakes with the bosses instead. And god forbid you don't like what you see after a few minutes of gameplay. It must be that artificial challenge kicking in again! Damn you Sakaguchi, why must you make your games one big blatant lie! Don't you know RPGs are about convenient save-spots and battles where items are completely unnecessary?

I mean, RPGs arent even about the gameplay, and Squeenix has to let those 12 year olds play video games too! And if anyone DARES disagree with my Opin.. no, factual statements, they MUST have their head up their ass.

RPGs are about being interactive movies and books with visuals! I love when I can get attached to the emotional, prettyboy main character! Hes such a sweetie, this is really how someone should appreciate video games!

Quote from: "The Darkrider"
If by "charm" you mean "outdated game mechanics that would have been doomed to oblivion years ago were it not for the tendency of older gamers to look back on the games of yore through rose-colored glasses and lament the long-gone days of monotonous level grinding to artificially inflate playing time through sheer repetition", then I guess it has charm out the fucking ass.

I'm not calling the game superior to modern RPGs, but complimenting it's game play structure and basic design. This is also the first time I've played an RPG pre-SNES, so it's easy to reflect on the changes.

And they were obviously doing something right back then, since Final Fantasy 6 and Chrono Trigger are so unquestionably praised by the more serious jRPG gaming community.
