This game warrants that I wait for a multitude of reviews before even giving it a second glance. It is utterly assinine to release this when they are, and makes me think they have little confidence in it.
The plethora of difficulty settings is appealing. Not too many rpgs even give you a choice.
The battle system sounds a bit complicated, and I have zero interest in outfitting my characters.
I am VERY concerned about the lack of quality dungeons. This is not a minor issue, considering the amount of time spent in them.
I like the whole steampunk motif, but it does look an awfol lot like a Wrpg now. lol.
This a total wait and see for me. Probably a bargain buy a year from now.

Yeah, Prime, if you could NOT spoil a game that just came out a month ago?
That would be great.

Dragon Age - Finished up the Orzammar scenario and am now doing misc. things before I go back to Arl Eoman and call the landsmeet. I imagine I am nearing the end.
I went after Flemeth for Morrigan and killed her the second time I fought her. I was totally unprepared for a dragon battle the first time. My approval rating with Morrigan is pretty high and I'd like to see if I can "seal the deal". Do I just shower her with more gifts, or is there a better way?
I really dig Ohgren. He kicks ass in battle and is actually kinda funny.

I totally dug the Gambits in FF12. I did spend a lot of time setting them up, but I felt like that was all part of the strategy. It's basically the same in Dragon Age with the tactics. I spend a lot of time setting them up, but it's oddly rewarding.
All rpgs should have auto-level up on the characters you don't use. heaven forbid the game forces you to use a character in the last level that you haven't touched since the beginning of the game.
Better yet, all games should have a Suikoden style exp system.

I don't care, either way it'll be a big hit in the awesome department.
And THAT is what counts! I want me some Awesome.

I've enjoyed every FF game I've played,so this is tough:
I have NOT played: 2,3,5,11

7. FFI - I remember playing through this kind of as a team with my brothers. It was a bitch and a half, but being one of the first rpgs we'd played we trudged on through.

6. FFVIII - I made it to disk 3 and then gave up after getting my ass kicked over and over again. Too much reliance on GFs and a complete lack of understanding in regards to the battle system ruined it. Loved the setting, though. I actually liked Rinoa, too.

5. FFIX - I actually liked this game quite a bit at the time. I just don't remember much about it. I hated the hermaphroditic chef, and the music was blah.

4. FFXII - I liked this way more than I expected to. The overall story was lost on me, but most of the characters we're cool. Loved Rabanastre. The music was just OK

3. FFVI - This rocked my world when it came out. The graphics, the music, the "dark" storyline. The only thing I didn't like was the espers taking away some of the individuality of the characters. They still had defined roles,though, so that's a pretty minor weakness.

2. FFX - I liked how the story was told. I liked Tidus' evolution from whiner to hero. The battle system didn't rot my brain with complexity. It was fast and fun. Add in incredible graphics and some pretty good tunes and this is one solid game

1. FFIV - I am unapolegtically nostalgic about this game. One of my favorite soundtracks of all time for ANY game. I WISH modern rpgs(or any game) would have soundtracks this good.  I loved the mix of tech with fantasy. Cecil and Kain are just too cool.

Reading the soundtrack review of FFXIII excites me. Music is HUGELY important to me in a game, and it seems to have gone by the wayside. Too much incidental and environmental stuff going on nowadays. Not enough emphasis on making something that sounds great. We'll see.

I would change my post, but I think my idiocy is kinda funny.
2243  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Anyone looking forward to Heavy Rain? on: February 13, 2010, 10:57:04 AM
Excellent reviews across the board. 9/10 on both IGN and eurogamer. I was expecting mixed reviews but they've all been very good so far.

I was expecting mixed reviews as well. This might push me over the edge into buying it. I certainly don't want to pass up on an excellent, innovative game like this despite my "this games looks incredibly boring from trailers" vibe I had going on.
My thoughts exactly. I haven't really bene paying much attention to this game, as it initially looked kinda boring. If it really is great then I will have to play it some time or another. Either way, this is NOT a full price purchase. Too many other good games coming out.

Often times these deals are only for Gold members. Is this the case here as well? I'll check it out later, but I only have a Silver membership.

Dragon Age - Still in Orzammar.
Did the Proving battles, the Dust Town stuff, and am now about to go after Branka in the Deep Road.
This is really kinda dragging right now. The whole Dwarf scenario is boring to me.
After 45+ hours I am ready to be done with this game. It's good, but it is distinctly lacking in "Awesome"
March should bring the Awesome.

2246  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: God of war III on: February 12, 2010, 10:57:08 AM
God Damn, this game looks so friggin EPIC. This really is the game I want more than anything else right now. Enough with these slow ass rpgs. I need some carnage.

Can you tell I've had enough of Dragon Age? It's an alright game, but terribly SLOW at times.
2247  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Has anyone played Flower? on: February 11, 2010, 04:39:40 PM
Fantastic game. I'm a bit of a tree hugger, so the meaning behind it all really worked for me. Loved the look of the game, and the music fits perfectly. I suppose some would consider it too short, but I thought it was perfect for what you pay. Highly recommended.
2248  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Level 5 Developing Unannounced PlayStation 3 And Wii Titles on: February 10, 2010, 12:03:00 PM
i think the "charm" in WKC is that it resembles a MMORPG, AGH ive been waiting years to play it and i wont let some bad reviews just kill my expectations, i want the gameee

I don't understand this mentality. I don't care how much I'm looking forward to a game. If it ends up sucking, I won't play it.
Like if ME2 ended up crappy, with fair to midland reviews. I'd say "Man, that sucks", and move on to something else.
Same with FFXIII. If for some reason it turns out bad, or even mediocre, I will not buy it.
My time is too valuable to waste on shitty games.
2249  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Level 5 Developing Unannounced PlayStation 3 And Wii Titles on: February 10, 2010, 09:16:03 AM
Why make a sequel to WKC? Seems like a waste of time and resources. They should be making either Dragon Quest X or Dark Cloud 3. Anything else I don't care about.

Dragon Age - I am now in Orzammar. Dwarves in this game have rubbed me the wrong way from the get go, and being here is just making it worse. I don't like that they sound the same as humans. Same with the elves, actually, but they aren't as creepy looking.
Hopefully the deep road will be entertaining.

Yeah, I kind of agree.  I just walked into Orzammar and they seem a little strange.  Perhaps it's because I'm pretty used to World of Warcraft's dwarves for so long that they are immediately what I think of (even though I never made a Dwarf myself).

Oh, and WTF I just found out there's a gold glitch in this game.  Now my rogue is decked out in that expensive as shit Rose Dagger and some badass belt.  Bought some awesome tank ring for Alistair too.
Gold glitch? Where? How?
