1906  Media / Single-Player RPGs / New S-E trademark, Blood of Bahamut on: September 04, 2008, 07:39:38 PM
Since it wasn't ever released here, the only way for me to play it was the illegal way. I played it for about 4 hours and never went back because I got sidetracked with other stuff. It was a fun game though, and if they do remake it I hope it comes over here this time like SO1 for the PSP.

The real truth is that this is just an opinion, and there isn't any real truth to the any games quality.

Just because something's true doesn't mean you need to state it.


Well everluck was saying that I was basically lying because I thought the game wasn't very good, which is crazy. You can't say someone's a liar for not liking a game that you did.

Picking up a 360 tomorrow.  Still plan to get NHL 09 on the PS3, but will probably snag Dead Rising or something cheap with the console when I pick it up.


Dead Rising has some of the worst controls ever. I freaking hated them. The game suffered from it. Not to mention it was a pretty hard game with a terrible save system.

This is what 50% of the people who play it will tell you.

The other 50% will tell you the truth: Dead Rising is fucking awesome.

I went on an 8 hour marathon in Infinite Undiscovery yesterday. Really liking the combat system and the exploration. It can be hard to figure out where to go at times, but thats a little quibble. I like the voice acting (for the most part) and the story is pretty good (and funny in a good way). It reminds me alot of Radiata Stories, only a little more serious in tone. Also, the graphics aren't as bad as the screenshots imply. The character models are actually quite good.

I've played it for 11 hours now and I really like it. I'd say if you've liked tri-Ace's other games, you'll certainly like this one.
1913  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Is 360 the RPG console to get now? on: September 04, 2008, 02:23:26 PM

I wonder how many times this thread will get recycled?

It seems like it comes up every 2-3 months.

To answer your question, the DS reigns supreme to me.

Yeah it is starting to get old. My opinion is that for consoles you go with the 360 because it has a good amount of solid RPG's and plenty of non-rpg's that are certainly good. As for handhelds, if you like SRPG's then I'd say PSP, otherwise DS all the way.

Looks OK, I guess. I'm still skeptical towards any Shining Force SRPG not developed by Camelot, though.


My thoughts exactly. Of course, I have never played a Flight Plan strategy RPG before so I'm going to withhold judgement for now.

Again, "fun" is a very wide blanket term. Is it mindless fun? (Trigger Heart Exelica is 'fun' in this sense, but it's not what I'd call a great shooter compared to Ikaruga.) Is it sensual fun? (Hi there dating sims!) There's variations even on this theme, so I'd say much more careful consideration has to be given for a fair review before you could really approach 'editor's choice'.

An example: I consider Persona: Revelations 'fun', and I had a good time with it. But I could never score it very well because despite the great enjoyment I derived from the game, it's /not/ technically well made, the translation is horrible, and there are far better games out there not only in its genre, but in its own series. Conversely, Persona 2 is a far better game, and I had fun with that too, but for some reason not  as much fun as Persona: Revelations -- yet I would score Persona 2 much higher for its actual merits.

Addendum: I do want to make it clear however that I'm not saying you need to throw a wide net. That only accomplishes the reverse, which is writing a colourless, pale review that does nothing to explore the game from the viewpoint of a satisfied (or dissatisfied) customer, and reflects none of the personal experience. Merely that you need a net wider than "fun".


I getcha. Just merely saying that if I find a game fun it will at least be a somewhat positive review. I just happen to think KH2 is a very well made game that also happens to be very fun. Great voice acting, dominant music, pretty good story, excellent graphics at the time, and combat that is fun = editor's choice in my book.

That's the issue though -- while I agree with the maxim that games should be /fun/, you have to go beyond fun and start looking at the genre as a whole, the technical execution of the game (not just in terms of software, but in terms of writing, direction, etc), and so on. The more you do this, the closer you can get to something thoughtful as a review.

It helps to know a bit of history too. People laud MGS4 without considering its genre, or its series. As a standalone product it might seem good, but so does bad food if you completely forget you ever tasted anything better. It's like claiming a McDonald's hamburger is better than a properly prepared rack of ribs. The food may taste 'better' to you, but you haven't done the proper thinking involved when considering its actual quality, versus your comfort zone.

Just my two cents.


I know all these things, I just think fun is the most important aspect because it's the entire reason we play video games in the first place.

Well you all can shove it cuz I love KH :P. I'm pretty sure Pat does as well considering he gave KH2 an editor's choice, which I would have done the same.


That's... great. But defend your choice at least. If you want to make an argument that is. It's kind of silly to claim you'd give such and such a game an ed's choice award without really explaining /why/.

But hey, I get the distinct feeling you and I would not enjoy the same kinds of games, nor do we subscribe to the same kind of reasoning. I for one think MGS4 is subpar for its series and genre, for example, despite its high production values and well-directed cinematics.


Yeah I'd say we probably don't enjoy the same type of games and have different reasonings for liking/disliking games.

As for my reasoning on liking KH2, it's simple: fun. I had so much fun playing through that game and I still don't think to this day I have played a game since KH2 came out that was as fun. I played that game for 40 hours within the first 3 days of release, something I still haven't matched since then. Closest I guess would be the 20 hours I poured into MGS4 in 2 days. What a coincidence :P

I've never seen so many negative comments for KH in a single thread before. I freakin love those games.

Well, Sony needs *something* to counteract all these new exclusive RPG's on the 360. I'm not gonna believe it till its official.
