Wild arms 4 (enjoyed it)
Wild arms 5 (huge waste of time)
Gim grimmoire (loved it)
Xenosaga Ep. I (loved it)

Currently playing xenosaga ep II, though it obviously has its flaws I'm really enjoying this series. I can't believe it took me such much time to give it a try.

Looking good. The max number of party members is still 4 right? I'll have to check the trailer again, in the pics there are only 3 but that obviously doesn't mean anything.

Well, I really enjoyed P3 so I certainly don't mind getting more of the same. It's not like it's the 100th time they are dishing out the same thing and you know what? If they did change it people would be complaining that they ruined a great game. They would be saying: "all they had to do was to use an existing engine and formula and adapt it to a new story and they blew it". Wanna bet?

And P3 is a unique experience, you can't find another game like it on the PS2 so as a fan I'm glad to have a sequel. And considering we are getting a triple A title so late in the console´s life cycle is in itself fantastic.

Good to see panzer dragoon saga in there, I really loved that game. My favorites are all there so I'm not complaining.

Well, I strongly recomend xenogears. Try to find a copy and play it. It's totally worth it, the characters and the story will stay with you for a long time.

Quote from: "Bernhardt"


Though, I thought Dirge of Cerberus was a decent game, I just wished it would've been a prequel, explaining Vincent's back story, much how like Crisis Core is a prequel that explains Cloud's story.

All these new villains that keep showing up AFTER Sephiroth should all be eaten by a snizz.

Re-appearance by Sephiroth in Advent Children was acceptable, I suppose, but his proteges were little more than driving characters leading up to his re-appearance, but the Dirge of Cerberus villains are totally pointless.


Cerberus had a few flashbacks of vincent's past, it actually explains some details of his back story but not a lot. Even being a sequel the story could have been a hell of a lot better though.


Considering the ports of SH origins and ratchet and clank do you guys think there's any chance of this hitting the PS2? I mean, they could just let it sell a few PSP's and towards the end of the year anounce a PS2 version just in time for Christmas. It would definitely sell. A lot.

So it's kinda like Super Robot Taisen, then?  To me, that's the proverbial crossover SRPG series.  And if there was a market for that in the US (esp. considering some of the mechs from SRT are from obscure anime), why not there be one for Chaos Wars?

CDFN- yeah, it's the same genre as Soul Nomad.  So if you're digging Soul Nomad (I liked the game, to be sure) this is in that genre.  

I checked out the trailer.  Looks like a solid SRPG, but I was not feeling the music at all.



Thanks. Yeah, I'm digging it especially because of Gig, one of the best characters ever imo. Fortunately the VA for this character is fantastic, he really knows how to deliver those lines.

The overall level of detail seems higher compared to P3, the game looks pretty good.
When it's raining they walk around with umbrellas, nice touch.

As for the velvet room music, like someone else said, it's a staple in the megaten series, just like chocobos, moogles, etc in the FF series. What's the problem? It's one freakin' song in a 100+ hour game. Those lazy bastards!

Oh, and it's fantastic track by the way.

The IGN review says that it's actually very good. Basically the only major complaint was the camera. The graphics are some of the best you'll see on the PSP, the soundtrack is supposed to be fantastic and the ending is said to be one of the highlights of the whole FFVII series.

If I had a PSP I would definitely buy it. The rest of the compilation may be crap but this game seems to be a good adition to the franchise, FFVII had a lot of it's story based on previous events involving most of the characters present in the game. This makes the prequel seem more natural because it's just fleshing out events that were already seen or mentioned in the main game. It's not a story that was forced into the overall plot just for the sake of making a prequel. It's not something they just pulled out of their ass or happened thousands of years before the events in FFVII with no real connection to it, it's the same characters and the same story.

That's what I think anyway.

I'm playing soul nomad right now and it's my first strategy rpg, this seems to be similar or am I wrong? The SH characters really make me want to give it a shot.

Hi guys. New here. Have been reading for a while though.

I can't describe how psyched I am. Buying that PS2 was a really smart move. I never thought that 6 years later I would still be so psyched for a PS2 release. Hell, make that 2 PS2 releases because FES can't come soon enough! And the fact that it seems similar to P3 is fine with me. I was also expecting it considering that the development of something from the ground up so late in the console´s life cicle was unlikely, specially when they had a successful formula to build upon.


Quick introduction:

Gamer since 8 (comodore 64), favorite RPG's from the top of my head: Xenogears (definitely my favorite game ever), several FF with VIII at the top, panzer dragoon saga, SH and SH Covenant, DDS 1&2, SMT Nocturne and of course, Persona 3.

Right now I'm playing the xenosaga series. I recently finished episode 1 and will begin episode 2 soon. I should have played them sooner but the bad reviews coupled with the fact that they are huge kept me away. Big mistake.

Sorry for the off topic, lets continue praising ATLUS, they sure deserve it.
