1891  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / New Quantum of Solace Trailer on: September 10, 2008, 09:02:22 PM

I loved Casino Royale and hope this movie is good. It's looking good from the trailers, but we'll see.

With Phantasy Star being pretty much a multiplayer experience, the Xenosaga trilogy having ended, Star Ocean being a cockteaser of a series, and others not quite being so great, I would just love to see a single-player JRPG that's more sci-fi and/or at least incorporates sci-fi the way Phantasy Star and Xenosaga do.

I just think it's a shame that good sci-fi RPGs, be they JRPGs or Western RPGs, are so few and far between compared to the sea of medieval fantasy titles.  Oh well, Anachronox was awesome and though Septerra Core had a slow battle system, it had a bit of a Phantasy Star vibe to me.

Phantasy Star's a great series (Phantasy Star 2 was the first RPG I cut my teeth on), though I agree that 4 is the one that's aged the best.  Those manga style cutscenes still look fresh and sexy to me.  Phantasy Star Online on Dreamcast was my first (and last) foray into online RPGing.  That game was digital crack.  I lost 500 or so hours to PSO.  I ran with a bunch of 'Fanners periodically too.  I remember playing with Parn, Nallo, Cyberman X, Cyberman X's sister Lacia, Eusis, Jayde, ZP, Dios, Shig, beans, Tenken no Kasei, bunch of others.  Never got to play with Sumire or Alisha though.  Shame, ain't it?  

I lost around 700 hours of my life on PSO, but it was a heck of alotta fun. This is why I hope this DS game is done right. Also, I know you said you wanted a JRPG sci-fi game, but Mass Effect is hella good.

I've got better scans for ya'll.


Not sure what to think of the game just yet.  The character designs definitely are Lunar-esque.  I really like that style.  The art is interesting.

Thanks for the scans. And yeah, it does look more like Lunar than Phantasy Star.

Is this going to be like PSO or a proper, story driven RPG?

It says in calintz's first post it is in the PSO series...

If they do it right this will make me very happy :)

Collateral. Pretty darn good.

Other than Crisis Core, I hadn't touched anything yet this year because of time constraints and otehr distractions, but I started Lost Odyssey the weekend before last.  It's not too bad, but there are sure some long stretches of story and dreams without a lot of action.  I'm well into disc 2 though, so hopefully it wraps up nicely.  Yesterday, I picked up Tales of Vesperia and Infinite Unidscovery, so hopefully I can keep myself motivated to play and get to those soon.  Any recommendation on which to start first?

Infinite Undiscovery is much shorter (20-25 hours compared to the 40+ hours in Tales of Vesperia). I do think Tales of Vesperia is the better game, but only because the characters & story are better. I like Infinite Undiscovery's battle system more.

in that sense, what about Mass Effect?

Too many backwater planets with nothing on them but jerks :P

Watched Doomsday last night. It was better than I thought it would be.

I picked up Lost Odyssey.  I'm unimpressed, but I'm not particularly far.

I thought the first 2 discs were easily the best part, so if you aren't impressed now you're never going to be :P

I was kinda enjoying the game until today. The story and characters are fucking atrocious, but Iím enjoying the combat enough to soldier on.

But then my game glitched. Twice in fact. In the same area. First time it couldn't read a save point. A message came up saying it couldn't read the disk, and so I wasn't able to save my progress. Second time it didn't even load the town the save point was located in. I was walking through a sea of blue with everything but my character rendered invisible. After walking around for a bit, it came up with the same error.

Thats crazy, my game hasn't encountered any glitches yet. Also, I like the characters and story, althought I'm about to beat the game so your mind might change by then.

I watched In Bruges. It was hilarious.

If you liked traditional RPG's and don't mind nothing being innovative, give it a shot. If you don't like derivative games, pass on it.

Absolutely FFX's Spira.

For all the shit that game gets, there's no denying it took place in a pretty original and inviting world.

digital distribution is fine but trickled releases of old games is not.

Old classics > New games IMO.

No way.

Are you saying you'd prefer to be stuck in the past than to progress?

Old classics are fantastic when we get them, but no way should they be priority. That's like reliving a memory over and over again and disregarding any new experience.

My 2 cents, anyway.

I meant in terms of quality. Of course I play new games, all the time actually, but I think developers worry to much about pushing graphics and such today compared to actually developing gameplay mechanics back in the SNES days when pretty much all the graphics were the same.
