1966  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Star Ocean: The Last Hope on: June 13, 2008, 02:24:37 PM
Quote from: "Dincrest"
With Star Ocean 4 being a prequel, I'm jumping ahead and wondering about future installments in the series.  I mean, the SO games are loosely connected to each other and I feel as if the writers wrote themselves into a corner with SO3's plot twist so a sequel to that would require some imaginative writing.  

What's next after SO4?  Star Earth, the pre-prequel?  Post-apocalypse often turns into the "podunk" dark ages, so perhaps the pre-apocalypse will have the futuristic stuff like flying cars.  

IMO, few JRPGs could do the whole interplanetary thing better than Phantasy Star.  Star Ocean could do well to take a cue from that series, methinks.


PSU was a pile of doodoo and the series seems to only be getting worse as times progressing. I used to love that series too... freakin Sega. I wonder if they are going to make more games for that series?

Oh god, I forgot Mass Effect. Western RPGs consistently beat JRPGs in terms of script. Mass Effect in particular was great.

By the way, let's not turn this into a FFXII love fest. It will only cause dissension.


I agree on both points. I've seen plenty of FFXII arguing (and I've only been here since March) and I just don't want to get into it AGAIN. I also agree that Mass Effects script was amazing.
1968  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Unoriginal Topic: Favorite Battle System on: June 13, 2008, 02:14:29 PM
I loved SO3's battle system. The freedom and range of abilities was great and it was just tons of fun. I also loved Grandia 3's because it was my first game of the series and I thought it was one of the most innovative turn-based battle systems I have played and it was also tons of fun. I also really liked FFXII's, unlike most. Of course when it comes to SRPG's nothing beats FFT to this day (imo of course).
1969  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Metal Gear Solid 4 on: June 13, 2008, 09:43:38 AM
Quote from: "Masamune"
Well I beat Metal Gear Solid 4.  I won't really say anything about it, but it was an epic, awesome game from beginning to end.  The series as a whole is one of the best I've ever played.

Hurry up and beat it so I can discuss it. :P


I have work, school, and life so I don't have as much time to play it as I want. I still ended up playing it for 7 hours straight yesterday (9PM-4AM) and only got 3 hours of sleep for school. The game is freaking amazing so far.
1970  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Final Fantasy IV had limited exposure!!! on: June 12, 2008, 04:15:30 PM
Quote from: "Eusis"
It's not as bad as I was expecting, but 'Lost Gem' and the fact remakes implies more of these didn't somehow come out here seems ignorant. I'd have saved the Lost Gem comment for V at least.


I'd say that lost gem only applied to FF3 since we didn't have it until the remake.
1971  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Solid Script... on: June 12, 2008, 01:51:10 AM
So we all agree that the Ivalice games have the best writing...
1972  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Metal Gear Solid 4 on: June 12, 2008, 01:24:41 AM
Anyone else get it?!
1973  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Solid Script... on: June 12, 2008, 01:22:13 AM
Quote from: "calintz"
i know i'll be laughed at, but i genuinely like the FFXII script - well spoken/ written and far from a direct translation from the japanese one
having played both, the articulate word play in the english FFXII puts it heads and heals over the japanese script, which was very good already

loved the script to english version of Balthier


...in saying that, Vagrant Story was great too


You are not going to get laughed at (at least not by me). I thought the script and voice acting in FFXII were bar none the greatest on the PS2 (when it comes to RPG's).
1974  The Rest / General Discussions / RPGFan Gaming Journal: The Road to Infinity on: June 12, 2008, 01:20:06 AM
Well, MGS4 will now be taking over my life until I finish it.
1975  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Is the 360 the RPG console of this generation? on: June 11, 2008, 06:40:07 PM
Quote from: "Ryos"
Quote from: "Thoren"
Perhaps Microsoft isn't trying to win over Japan, but instead gamers in the US and Europe that never owned an Xbox due to its constrictive genre of games. I dislike how people speak of Japanese games like they are made only to appeal to the Japanese audience (When it comes to sales).


Is there a big US/Europe console RPG fanbase that gets WRPGs on consoles over PCs though when given the choice?  I haven't really kept track of the sales or anything, but I'd think Oblivion sells a lot better on PC for instance, given the very large modding community for the Elder Scrolls series.

I like many of the other posters here don't really expect to 1see a big winner at this point, though 360 is in the lead for sure.  Heck, my PSP is my only nextgen system at this point for some unfathomable reason, partially because there isn't an obvious RPG console at this point (and may never be).


Mass Effect and Oblivion are both multi-platnum on the X360. I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure that Oblivion sold more on the X360 than PC. Mass Effect came way too late for the PC to have a chance at having as high of sales as the X360 version. Too bad because it's a great game.
1976  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Is the 360 the RPG console of this generation? on: June 11, 2008, 02:50:31 PM
Japanese sources have said that Tales of Symphonia 2's pre-orders for the Wii have already exceeded 150,000. There's definitely starved Wii JRPG owners in Japan.
1977  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Star Ocean: The Last Hope on: June 11, 2008, 01:13:16 AM
I am fine with this being on the 360. I own all three systems, and my 360 hasn't been used since Mass Effect so I need some RPG's for it. Lost Odyssey was disappointing compared to the hype, and although I enjoyed Blue Dragon quite a deal, it was also ultimately disappointing compared to the massive hype for it. I never did pick up Eternal Sonata, I might do that sometime.

This is the game I want the most for the 360, then Last Remnant and Tales of Vesperia (in terms of JRPG's). If we go with just RPG's, I'd say Mass Effect 2 is my most wanted.

But regardless of the price, I prefer my RPGs in their original language with their original content, not the censored, dubbed-over, dumbed-down versions we get back home many months


i also rofl'd.


I ROFL right back at you.  Are you seriously denying that many domestic releases have censored content and lower difficulty?  How would you even know?  Do you play imports?

PS: Calintz, I believe I said "RPGs," and the last time I checked, Devil May Cry 3 was an action game.


I agree with you on some things, but sometimes when games get localized they improve upon some of the things that were wrong with the Japanese version, so I think sometimes we CAN get the superior version. Sometimes we also get more content (like the exclusive planet in Rogue Galaxy).
1979  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Xbox 360: RPG Title Announcement Media Event on: June 10, 2008, 07:25:07 PM
I downloaded and watched the SO4, Last Remnant, and IU trailers on the 360 so I could watch them on my tv. I like doing that more than on my computer.

And after all this, I still find it really weird that Mistwalker did absolutely nothing at this event...

I don't understand what the developers are thinking unless they are getting compensation to make up the difference.

See, this is the problem.  Why do you give a shit if it makes sense?  It doesn't matter.

Star Ocean 4 is coming to 360.  If you want to play Star Ocean 4, you have to buy a 360.  No amount of discussion is going to change this, unless Square Enix decides they want to port it.  Maybe you can wait in line for it like Eternal Sonata.  If Japanese gamers are so stupid that they will outright refuse to buy these games because it's on an American console, then it's their loss.  Not mine.

This is the same stupid bullshit people were screaming when Final Fantasy VII went to Playstation.  History has a knack for repeating itself.


I have not seen truer words in a long time. Go Parn!
