Lemon-meringue pie is delicious

We aren't getting a Shining Force IV, just as we aren't getting a Phantasy Star V. However, I heard that it'll be a top-down strategy RPG, only battles are done in real-time. But I heard that from a friend, so take that at face value.

That's Shining Force Feather, which was already released in Japan. This is something else altogether.

The Saga series and Legend of Mana too.

I can honestly say I hate Inomata's designs.  An A+ for being unique... but some of them are just down right atrocious. 

I couldn't agree more with this. Example: Tales of Eternia's male protagonist wears a boob tube.

The only thing that bothers me about RPGFan's coverage is that sometimes there's a lack of consistency. I don't have a problem with covering action/adventure games like Zelda as long as other similar games are covered too. Okami actually has more RPG elements than Zelda and follows a very similar structure but was ignored by the site.

I just hope they hire some new writers this time around.

While there's cases where they're tolerable or even handled relatively realistically (Sue), a lot of the time it just seems that they're there to fulfill some silly quota.

A generic RPG cast has a very high chance of containing:
-hero dude
-mage/healer girl who may or may not be the chosen one
-tough guy
-ninja girl
-mysterious guy
-annoying brat

You could almost be describing Tales of Symphonia's cast with that list.

Athkatla in Baldur's Gate II. Almost certainly the largest city in any RPG with the most content and quests. It actually feels like a city, not the usual two shops, a few houses and an inn. I wish more RPGs would follow this model and have towns as a significant chunk of the game, rather than just somewhere to stop off at between dungeons.

Zeal in Chrono Trigger stands out too, mostly because of the fantastic music.

Just watching that SO4 video reminded me of another - excessive voice acting. Is it really necessary to shout out the name of every special attack, every single time? I could do without any comments at the end of battles too. If games must have voice acting, keep it limited to dialogue only.

"My strength!"

"Whoop-ass completed!"

I'm fairly sure I brought this up in another topic some time ago, but multiple endings in which the only good ending is the one that requires a walkthrough to reach. Valkyrie Profile and FFX-2 are the worse culprits.

How the hell am I supposed to know that I have press the x button repeatedly at a certain point in FFX-2? And no one playing the game normally would ever see VP's proper ending without outside help.

I don't mind some secrets but when it's a significant chunk of content I feel cheated.
491  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Article - Best RPG of last generation... DQ8? on: March 18, 2009, 07:35:54 AM
I've just loaded up my copy of DQVIII. It takes about 1 second to access the menu and about 2 or 3 seconds to access the alchemy pot, and that's on an old 2002 model PS2 that I've had to repair myself at least a few times.

NWN was supposed to be the spiritual successor of BG2. Heck, in the tips BG2 gives you during loadings it tells you you'll be able to export your characters to NWN. That wasn't true D:

Really? From when they first revealed NWN it was seemed pretty clear to me that it was focused on the toolset and multiplayer. I think any plan that Bioware had to import characters into NWN was shelved with Throne of Bhaal and then the move to 3rd edition D&D.

Don't bother with Swift Learner or Here and Now, you gain levels more than quickly enough as it is.

The youngest was apparently a 5-year old Peruvian. I'm amazed that's even possible.

Crap. It's been delayed from a Spring release to 'the last half of 2009', now a simultaneous release on the three platforms. Presumably this is EA's doing because they don't want to market it separately from the console ports.
