I wish Nintendo would give us the OPTION of using traditional control schemes. It was bad enough that in TP they wouldnt let you use a gamecube/classic controller.


And I'm excited for Phantom Hourglass. Every preview I've seen so far has been extremely positive. The controls sound strange, but everyone that's played it has seemed to love them.

It's true that it came out for GCN, but they should have included the control scheme with the Wii version as well. RE4 did it recently, becoming the best version of the game ever.

I don't mind Nintendo trying out new things, Aonuma has said that Twilight Princess was the last "Normal" Zelda that we'll ever see. I just don't like the approach they seem to take to make games simple for casual or non-gamers. I don't think you can appeal to both the hardcore and the people who play games only a couple hours a week. Is Nintendo trying to make the game simple for people to play, or really trying to innovative? I'll have to save my judgement until I play it. My faith gets shaken sometimes by interviews, a while ago Miyamoto called the D-pad "Too Complicated"
2282  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Blue Dragon for both NA and Europe in August. on: July 01, 2007, 07:19:19 AM
No offense, but you guys are stingy for not wanting to pay $60 for a good game. For Eternal Sonata, maybe I could see it reasonable as a $50 game, but Blue Dragon was a 25 million dollar project. Games cost more to develop than last gen, and honestly you shouldn't mind paying $60 for the few REALLY good games that come out, especially a Martyr like Blue Dragon which could NOT ONLY get more JRPGs on the Xbox 360 if it sells well, but show Japanese game developers that gamers still appreciate the now niche classic turn based gameplay.

And its really annoying that in every big thread about a PS3 or 360 game someone says "OMG I'M NOT PAYING $400/$600 FOR THAT!". It contributes nothing to the thread, when did this become PooRPGfan?
2283  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Blue Dragon for both NA and Europe in August. on: June 28, 2007, 08:03:12 PM
The general opinion on GAF is that Blue Dragon is a high caliber JRPG title, but the game is mostly easy on the default difficulty (With the exception of a few optional bosses).

Eternal Sonata turned out to be only 20 hours long, so its kind of dissapointing.

Hopefully they include the harder difficulty setting from the very beggining for us gamers wanting a challenge, but you could always just avoid enemies and stay underleveled a bit (Since theres no random encounters).
2284  Media / Single-Player RPGs / 1up rumor: REAL, console PE3 still coming on: June 25, 2007, 10:30:34 PM
Kojima has already expressed interest in his next ventures being a Wii or 360 game, so you never know what will come up with next.

This is just silly anyways, lets hope for the best I suppose. We'll at least see a Parasite Eve Port to the PSP I'm sure.
2285  Media / Single-Player RPGs / 1up rumor: REAL, console PE3 still coming on: June 25, 2007, 10:17:04 PM
Don't bet on it. 1up is known to talk out of their ass sometimes.

That whole news post was a joke. Wiiremote for PS2? ZOE3? Epic Games Sony exclusive? Its like a rumor blog
2286  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Band of Bugs - XBOX 360 HAS A TRPG OUTSIDE OF JAPAN! on: June 23, 2007, 02:30:09 PM
71%, not bad. It's a pretty decent Tactical RPG. All the basic stuff is in there, attack range, damage range, flanking bonus, rear/side attack bonuses, elevation, special skills and spells, whatever.

The production values feel  a little cheap, but hey its $10. I heard the game is easy for a while but really spikes in difficulty later on.

You can also play online and make custom maps I believe
2287  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Bioware to develop Sonic RPG for the DS - WHAT THE HELL on: June 21, 2007, 03:59:49 PM
Such vulgar language.

This is going to be one hell of a game.

(Should have made a Shenmue RPG instead)

Edit: Oh hey I just remembered who you were. You should change your Avatar back! :)
2288  Media / Single-Player RPGs / My Favorite Part About Idiotic Fanboys. on: June 18, 2007, 12:41:04 PM
I'll argue to my death that FF12 was a terrible game.

And I'm  the most open minded game ever.

I wish Nintendo would give us the OPTION of using traditional control schemes. It was bad enough that in TP they wouldnt let you use a gamecube/classic controller.

Personally im not that interested now, maybe if they had the game sideways like Ninja Gaiden DS it would have been better, since using a full stylus control in a game covers parts of the screen when the DS is held normally.
2290  Media / Single-Player RPGs / FFT PSP slowdown "not that bad," says S-E on: June 14, 2007, 08:37:31 PM
How the flying **** can you blame sony for a shitty Square-Enix remake?

If anything it really shows how Square Enix doesn't give a shit these days. I'm not going to support their products until they put actual effort into them.
2291  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Trusty Bell/Eternal Sonata - Sad as hell? on: June 08, 2007, 06:42:33 AM
The world he creates in his mind still has it's own problems. Will everything you do come together in the end and affect him in real life? Who the hell knows. But basically the beggining of the game is about some duke who hates flowers.

Being a Namco-Bandai game, I hope they throw tons of plot twists in there. Oh man, the potential for plot twists in this story is too much. Like the dream world being the real world.. well, maybe that's too far.
2292  Media / Single-Player RPGs / .hack for ps3? on: May 28, 2007, 11:42:29 PM
The developers are actually making another PS2 RPG, I think its unrelated to the .hack series though.
2293  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Is anyone else just plain tired of Tetsuya Nomura? on: May 28, 2007, 11:38:55 PM
I like(d) the guy, but his work seems to have deteriorated over the years. Make it look like gackt, slap a ton of buckles and zippers, and you have his art style. The whole crybaby prettyboy thing is getting a bit tiresome as well. They kept a tighter leash on him before the Enix merger, but it seems like they let him go wild with designs. If I recall correctly Square Enix is releasing around 5 games this year that has Nomura Character designs.

Here's a comparison of FF7 to Kingdom Hearts:

2294  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Shining Force on: May 28, 2007, 01:22:12 AM
I've played the first one, as well as Shining Force Gaiden, the one where Max goes after the girl from the first game that you fight in the Circus and you play as a bunch of villagers with help from the robot to follow him (Fan Translated, very well done)

I really love the world and story of the original Shining Force world, I desperately want to play the other side-games that are involved with it.
2295  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Lost odyssey on: May 26, 2007, 02:37:28 AM
Gosh, every topic about a turn based RPG turns into a debate nowadays. Why cant we just accept what the games will offer us. Alot of games do feature realtime elements in turn based gameplay, but a true real-time based RPG would be something like Kingdom Hearts or the Mana series.

I haven't played Grandia, but does the combat system work alot like Eternal Sonata?

Anyways, back to Lost Odyssey, Tonight (26th) There will be new footage and music debuting at Play! A Video Game Symphony, hopefully someone records and uploads it somewhere!
