1  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits slow gameplay? on: January 06, 2014, 04:43:40 PM
im a jrpg player since the nes times hehe so maybe im also getting older and have less time sadly with work etc. :(
atm im sorting out my collection as i see no time replaying some older games i still have in my collection (like vandal hearts etc.) and checking which i definitely wanna play!
i tested out Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits and it's some kind of FF Tactics/Vandal Hearts etc. JRPG gameplaystyle, this might be my less favourite battlestyle in jrpgs as they suck so much time ;), but not that those games are bad, but somehow i think the movement of the enemies are plain slow and dragging in the game till they ended their moves? i just played 30 - 40 mins and had 3-4 fights. i prefer (well i keep FF tactics and some others for nostalgia and seen as my jewels lol!) lunar, ff7, combostyled like xenogears or real time or a mixture of real time and roung based like star ocean etc.

what do you say?

will check my collection and see if i have more of this kind of games, i still have too many left from last 3 generations......
2  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Musashi: Samurai Legend on ps2 good? vs. ps1 game on: June 12, 2012, 07:18:56 AM
so i always wanted to get this game and recently remembered about it, i loooooooooooooooooooooove the first musashi game on the ps1, it was just perfect, the whole pacing, difficulty, music, characters, everything so great also with secrets and so on.

how is the title on the ps2? compared to it?
3  The Rest / The Helper Monkey / Odins Sphere alchemy question on: June 07, 2012, 01:51:32 PM
i just play the game for 3-4 hours, wow a gem! it really grows on me, one question though, i got 2 recipes so far but i only can use material 0 and material 2, but i combined wrong as i wanted to try out and got material 8 now, i cannot do something with it, only combining brings me more but no recipe so far for it, so is the only way dropping it or selling?

Musashi wasn't cute?

that was an example of not cuteness but this type of action rpg.

i mean cute like this i dont have anything against anime at all...

im looking more for stuff like this:

stubborn? well atm not really many examples were given, unless you can give me a list with games i think im not stubborn at all lol just cause i dont like the overcutenessed anime jrpgs doesnt mean i dont like the new stuff but i already pointed the style out i am looking for. and yes jrpgs not western.
6  Media / Single-Player RPGs / disappointed of new generation rpgs..... on: May 17, 2012, 09:19:00 PM
i didnt play many rpgs since ps2 anymore, the time issue :(
but there are also very nice ones and a variety, but nothing touches the old super famicom times, ps1 times etc.

i also checked out some ps3 rpgs and somehow many lack the quality or visual style for me, too many are toooo much anime, cute like. i miss the sometimes more adult settings, more stuff like xenogears, varied stuff like brave fencer musashi, parasite eve etc. or i missed them? i dunno somehow the new rpgs dont attract me anymore so far, any opinions?
7  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Valkyrie Profile 2 without played 1? on: May 17, 2012, 09:16:09 PM
thanks :), without spoiling, is VP2 good compared to VP1?
8  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Valkyrie Profile 2 without played 1? on: May 17, 2012, 07:28:14 PM
i read somewhere that it's the prequel, VP1 was too expensive in the past for me thats why i never bought it and forgot, i recently got VP2 very cheap and wanted to ask as i didnt want to read spoilers if i can play it without having played 1?
9  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenosaga 1, somehow not attracted..... on: March 13, 2012, 02:39:06 PM
thanks for your opinions and clarifications. guess i will skip xenosaga then cause i still have most ps2 jrpgs unplayed here...... i just bought this one cause i read that it is somehow connected with xenogears but when i played it 2 hours i felt bored with the whole style. also slow for my taste.

i wasnt satisfied with digital devil saga as well, played the first nearly through but want to sell it i guess, startin with Nocturne i think next.

thanks again, hopefully i will find some jrpgs on the ps2 which i will love like many on ps1 :).
10  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Xenosaga 1, somehow not attracted..... on: March 13, 2012, 07:59:20 AM
i started xenosaga 1 atm and im kinda not attracted by its style. i love xenogears and played it very much in the past on ps1 and still keep it as i have great thoughts of it.
but when i started xenosaga 1 i was somehow disappointed of the srtstyle, it looks soooo childish, and the guys strange in the first 2 hours. i know that anime is having this young look, this is normally no problem and i like that but this looks strange the main character. the battlegameplay is a bit overburdened first, too many attackoptions with not much difference, i guess only at the beginning like in most rpgs. but there was no impact yet where i said WOW, love it already. after 2 hours i somehow am disappointed of the look, the overall feeling.

hope it gets better :(

11  Media / Single-Player RPGs / DDS1 Ara Mitama first encounter... on: September 25, 2010, 08:16:32 AM
i hate it that many games dont have an ingame loading option, well i didnt succeed in defeating those as they ran away and i tried it a few times and yeah like many jrpgs there are not many options left to come up with your own ideas. instead of wasting perhaps hours to find the solution i looked up on youtube and saw that there is a way to get those APs from them. i then, forgot to load cause it already wasted 3 hours of my time so now when i learned the devil frenzy magic i enter the room and i cannot do the field hunt again, CRAP! i level upped for nothing cause i forgot to load what i did normally always.

1. does it mean this field hunt is gone forever?
2. if i continue to play, is there some statistics or anything which shows me i didnt succeeded there, or would i have gotten something special? or shall i just continue and it's the same as i would level up an hour.
12  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Digital Devil Saga 1 Questions on: September 24, 2010, 05:54:23 AM
ok i began playing my first shin megami tensei game!

2 questions.

1. i got already 3 times asked for my opinion in the game, does it have any effect on the outcome?

2. i also got shin megami tensei Nocturne, does it matter which i play first?
13  Media / The Soundroom / Hill of Silence ( A Tribute to Akira Yamaoka / Silent Hill ) on: December 24, 2008, 06:00:22 PM

i'm a mad silent hill fan and as a music lover i also do some hobbymusic.

nearly completed my tribute to Akira Yamaoka, so music inspired by his style and the world of silent hill.

i uploaded a track which contains a few samples of some tracks, hope you enjoy them.
quality was turned down a bit.

14  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Ys The Ark of Napishtim difficulties on: December 23, 2008, 10:21:25 AM
ok i played on hard cause i read it is for long time gamers a small challenge but not too hard...

well i'm playing rpgs etc. nearly 15-20 years and just finished the first boss,


but then the small bugs are not easy to hit and when there are 3-5 of them you cannot really stay alive :/
guess i gotta play normal.
15  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Ys The Ark of Napishtim difficulties on: December 22, 2008, 05:07:13 PM

wanted to start the above mentioned game and normally they only have 1 difficulty. before i play 1-2 hours normal or hard i wanted to know if this game is too easy on normal or too hard on hard?

what can you recommend?
