16  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Top 5 JRPGs for Total n00bs! - Post Yours! on: August 07, 2015, 05:39:19 AM
1. Suikoden I

2. Grandia I

3. Skies of Arcadia

4. Phantasy Star IV

5 Lunar SSS

These all have pretty straightforward battle systems and are pretty good examples of the genre.

However, you can easily make an argument for one of the earlier FFs, Dragon Quests, Breath of Fire, Persona 3/4 and maybe Jade Cocoon for someone who may not be into Pokemon.

The new plot summary sounds more political than I expected, more in the vein of FF12.

I liked that music in the trailer while they were walking around. Was that overworld music from the Type-0 demo or was that just selected for the trailer?

That said though, you should look into getting/playing DQVIII as that was the last good Console JRPG of the Aughts (XBC didn't come out until 2010 in JP).

No. Just no.

Also, I don't really care whether the protagonist is male or female. I just want the game to be fun, and have old fashioned turn based combat.

Please don't become an action game.

Not sure about the PS4 version, but the 3DS version has a 2D retro version of the game on the bottom screen (think the DS releases of 4-6) and it looks to be traditional turn based combat. Looks amazing. And it appears if you use the dpad to move around, you get into a 2D battle, if you use the circle pad, you get into a 3D battle.

Director is Takeshi Uchikawa. Previously worked on DQIX.

Sugiyama was asked to do the music from scratch with the feel of DQ1 in mind because XI is supposed to be a express a rebirth/fresh start feel in the game.

DQ10 and DQ11 coming for Nintendo NX too

If anyone is interested, there is now an option for a physical PS4 version of Shenmue 3 at the $60 backing level.

I would assume so, those are pretty different things.
24  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Star Ocean 5 on: June 30, 2015, 01:10:12 PM
According to the game's producer, there will be no dlc or expansion packs for the game.

I gotta say, in this day and age it's not only unexpected, but a real pleasant surprise.

I just finished Another Code R today (yay modded Wii) and now I'm doubly sad about Cing going bankrupt.

Square Enix conference was pretty meh.....

Really? I thought it was one of strongest conferences of the show.

They showed a wide variety of games, said "we're listening to what you want", gave us an unexpected sequel and a new game as well as a new studio.

Seriously, I don't get what is "meh" about that.

Just a heads up for Canadians - amazon.ca is offering a 20% discount for 2 games ordered and 30% discount for 3 games ordered right now.

I grabbed Etrian Odyssey Untold 2 to avoid the Atlus tax as well as Xenoblade and Starfox.

There's lots of games up including FFXV, Uncharted and Deus Ex.
30  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Star Ocean 5 on: June 16, 2015, 05:57:12 PM

And that's a pretty bold statement since SO4 exists.

Still better than any Tales game. Hey - you like to bash Dragon Quest, I like to bash Tales. Sue me.
