My question is it going to be always online or with there be an offline/solo mode as well?

lol, "why is there all of this extra content that I don't want to use and won't affect my experience negatively at all?!" THIS GAME SUCKS!

on a related note: It would be interesting to hear how many of those people who didn't enjoy CC for all of the extraneous characters did or didn't enjoy Suikoden.

Even as a CC fan, I'll admit Suikoden does a much better job with its cast. It generally gives each one a side story or least a scene to show a bit of personality of each character.

I am aware of, and looking forward to Disaster Report 4. I have both DR 1 and Raw Danger.

I'm missing Disaster Report 3 on the PSP, but I'm hoping to remedy that this year.

Basically, it's Disaster Report but instead of a disaster, you're trying to survive an Ultraman fight or a Godzilla attack.

All of my moneys!

Not in the first 5 I tried, but in the first 5 JRPGs I tried - Suikoden 2.

Wasn't a launch title but was released six months after the PS2.

They're still not great for a PS2 game, but it's not really a game you buy for the graphics.

Suikoden 1 and 2 come to mind. Though the endings was pretty satisfying.

These were my first picks as well, along with Suiko 3. Poor

It wasn't universally liked, but I was a fan of a game called Shadow of Destiny (Shadow of Memories in Japan).  In it, you travel through time trying to prevent your own murder and find out who keeps trying to kill you.

The graphics are bland for a PS2 game.

The soundtrack is generally terribly and sounds like it's trying to ape the worst part of the "More" soundtrack by Pink Floyd


And the voice acting is weak.


The concept is really cool and the game as a whole is way better than the sum of its parts. It's definitely worth a play through once. It's not very long and is pretty cheap, especially on PSP.

Has anyone played any of the Fatal Frame games? I noticed no one has mentioned them (I've never played any of them myself, but want to). They have a reputation for being pretty danged spooky. Some would say among the best of the genre.

They're creepy as hell. I had to turn the lights on while playing the first one which I never have to do, even for Silent Hill. The best version of Fatal Frame 2 is on the OG Xbox, if you can find it.

Eternal Darkness isn't scary in the way that Fatal Frame is, but it creates a great atmosphere, the voice acting really, really adds to the game and the sanity effects are really cool. I would consider it a must play if you're a horror fan.

Kuon is okay, but not worth $80. Had no idea it was worth that much. Rule of Rose, on the other hand, is worth the price. Even with the gimpy gameplay, I really enjoyed it.

One I haven't seen mentioned yet is Cursed Mountain. It's a Wii game, so the graphics aren't HD etc. but the atmosphere is amazing. It's more like Eternal Darkness in that's it's creepy and not scary. It's slower paced and not really action based, i.e. it's more Silent Hill than Resident Evil 2. However, it's insanely cheap.

Oh, and if you like Dead Space, get Dead Space Extraction. It's a surprisingly fun horror FPS for the Wii.

All I hope is that this game is good. I really want it to be good after SO4.

I never got that "Nintendo playing the parent deciding what's right for it's kid's eyes".  They been doing this for decades now, so I'm surprised people are surprised. 

The problem is it's only been since the rise of the internet that people have known what exactly was changed in the old games. (Except Mortal Kombat and people were complaining about that back then).

It wasn't nearly as bad during the GC/Wii era but Nintendo seems to be backsliding into the 80s between cutting content and region locking.

It's especially dicey (no pun intended) when you start cutting content in RPGs because people are going to start feeling like they are missing story content, even if it's just character interactions.

Instead of talking about the petting mini game (which I think is stupid but shouldn't be removed - I don't like Japan treating the Western audience as babies that are too sensitive to handle anything without freaking out), I wish people would talk about how you're being forced to buy three versions of the game to get the full story. Talk about bilking the fanbase.

Shower thought - Whomever said that it's a localiser's job to take out content for different audiences is 100% dead wrong. A localiser's job is to localise the content for a specific audience and give context when necessary. Not to be the moral arbiter of what should and shouldn't go in a game. If a localiser is offended by content in a game they're working on, they should give that content, or that game, to someone else who isn't as easily offended.

I can't wait for this to get canceled in a couple of months.

It won't. XSeed's not doing it this time, so they can't botch it and blame someone else like with the PSP game.
