I'm not quite sure this counts as a good explanation. Ya see, I used to be the same way. Western rpgs suck! Then I played Mass Effect and completely changed my tune. It wasn't hideously boring and confusing like the ones I tried in the past. I actually had some idea as to what I should be doing! Plus, the game is 3rd person w/ a simple battle system.

I still think mass effect sucks, it was hideously boring to me. :P I still haven't found a game to emulate baldur's gate but dragon age looks like it has potential to do just that.

Most western RPG I just hate. The only ones that stand out in my mind are Fallout series (especially 3 which has made me not want to play the others) and Baldurs gate (which I'm playing, again, right now).

JRPG, at least for me, tend to have great stories but no replay value. Western RPGs tend to do better with this. Baldur's gate has multiple classes you can play as and many people just replay the game just to use different party combinations. The random party dialouge is certainly a fan favorite for BG fans.

Mind you, I'm extremely picky guy so feel free to take my words with a grain of salt.

Honestly, the only RPGs I expect to get challenge from is Action RPGs like Kingdom Hearts or something. There's no real way to make a Turn-based RPG "difficult" because most of what is happening is being determined by some calculator, and half the time the difficulty is only there to pad out the game by forcing you to grind your characters until you can beat something.

Nocturne says sup.

Nocturne is more frustrating then anything. But then thats why most RPGs are not diffucult in the first place.

Valkyrie Profile 1 and 2? When where they difficult? Well, I supose they are harder then other JRPGs.

I've never play a JRPG for a challenge. I play them for the story, the adventure. And Chrono trigger just has so many memorable moments. Such as one of my favorite boss battles against Magus. That's a legend, and I still remember it. I love Magus' theme but then again, that's probably a big part of the reason I found that battle so incredible.

That's even more ridicious, the textures aren't nearly as bad as Tomb Raider II.

Wow, a sci-fi JRPG were the protagonist is using guns instead of swords. I'm shocked to say the least. :P
441  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIII Demo on: April 27, 2009, 02:29:20 AM
That's just being very nit picky. Its like says, look how short the demo is, FFXIII is going to a very short game! Its a demo and its been stated in several interviews that there will be many graphics and performance improvements in the final release.

And frankly, most people would never notice those textures while playing the demo. If fact, I can just barely notice them while I staring at the screenshots. Sorry, but bad rocks isn't enough to dismiss the impressiveness of the graphics. With a little polish (which it certainly will get, this is a final fantasy game after all), FF13 will definitely be giving MGS4 and Killzone 2 a run for their money.

Also, the gameplay certainly looks to be the fastest of any FF ever. The review was correct, it reminds me of the speed of a star ocean game. Almost.

Well as long as the plot doesn't require the protagonist to blow up the final boss with a giant laser it should all be good. 

What game was that? I would not be surprise if a game actually pull that off.

Considering how good the AI was in FF12 I say we have nothing to worry about.

AI controlled party members where not Persona 3's problem. It was the fact that the AI while decent would still make stupid choses.

I'd prefer to have something like the gambit system so I have more control on what the AI did.

Wow, I might be looking at the same kind of fun I haven't had since Baldurs Gate (Where your party was a intresting because of their conflicting views).

IGN is right, this really does remind one of Baldurs Gate.

Ok, back on topic.

From what I've read in interviews, FF13 will allow you to control one character at a time but you can switch between characters as you want. That tends to be how Action RPGs like Rogue Galaxy work. In fact, FF13 looks like an action rpg that just uses menus to allow you to quickly switch up combos. I rather like it a lot.

Not to mention the music is fantasic.

FF7 on Xbox 360, HA. Oh, just think of all the riots that will start from all the pissed off playstation fans.

Amusingly I read this and had no idea what StarTropics was. Thank you wiki.

The lesson is you can't short cut your way to success. If you want a game company to take you seriously you need experience so go get a job in the violate video game market. Get a resume full of games you've worked on, have some letters of recommendations, know some other companies that can send in a good word on your behalf because you've worked for them, etc.

Of course, this goes for any industry.

So the guy is named snow and the red head is vanille. And the music is great especially the battle theme. Nice little Easter egg for fans to find. I was lucky since the battle theme played on the first time the music looped. What luck!

And yes, I am pumped up for FF13 just like I was for Persona 4 and Fallout 3 and those other 2 haven't disappointed me. Don't break my luck FF13.

Also heres a tip to help you hear the battle theme:

Just keep refreshing the page over and over again until you hear the techno start to the theme. Just keep refreshing since it may take a little while but don't worry, it will play eventually.

Or you can just go to this fan website that was kind enough to just post the 2 songs:


From the site's forum:

The character info doesn't have a lot, but here's the translations:

She does not speak of herself at all.
It is unsure whether or not it is her true name
She is just called "Lightning"

A man of a fervent soul who uses the power of his body as his weapon.
He is honest to his emotions and takes aggressive actions,
but many look up to him for his optimistic personality.

Vanille: (might be a little off, I'm not sure about the last line)
A sweet girl who is constantly bright and cheerful.
Her determination is strong,
but the reason behind it is unknown.

Well, She is supposed to be the female version of Cloud so....
450  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: New FFXIII & Versus Scans on: January 07, 2009, 08:27:19 PM
Well, FF13 and versus are meant to bring make the "magic" of FF7 so there shouldn't be much surprise if you spot similarities in the game.
