Single-Player RPGs / Tales of the Abyss 3DS to See English Release
« on: April 27, 2011, 10:05:23 PM »

I had a blast with the PS2 version and might get a 3DS for this game.

Exactly what problem do JRPG companies have with letting other companies translate their games? Do they not like making money, or something? I heard other companies have tried to license Tales games, for instance, but Namco-Bandai adamantly refuses.

I think any RPG should answer the question about its characters "Who are these people and why should I care?" which is my opinion an essential step towards a good plot. A databank a la Star Ocean 3 definitely helps, as well.

Any RPG also needs a clear formula of "You are (blank) and your goal is (blank)", and complexity doesn't always make for a good plot.

I recently finished the original Mass Effect, and I can safely say it's one of the best Western RPGs I've ever played, and I'm definitely looking forward to playing its sequel, and eventually the third game as long as the developers didn't fuck things up.

I like fun, but I didn't like this game largely because it was too dependent upon luck at times, and I didn't like having to start from level 1 five or so times. I liked Puzzle Quest, though.

I couldn't stomach either Legaia game largely because battles are way too fracking slow.

I'm a bit wary of this since I didn't really enjoy Eternal Punishment (had to use a guide to negotiate with enemies for cards and to unveil combo spells).

Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces Æ’ confirmed for NA

I especially liked the Karma Society Tower theme. I feel though that even if Graces sells well in NA we still won't get all those other missing Tales games. Might as well give up and learn Japanese if you're a fan of the series.

I actually have a very methodical system of playing games, I try to play each I'm working on for at least an hour a day, and I work on other hobbies such as art, writing, and reading.

Damn, gonna be hard to choose between the PS3 and Xbox 360 now, but if the PS3 version of Tales of Vesperia is localized, I will get a PS3.

Nocturne in my opinion is decent but not ZOMG PERFECT like fantards make it out to be. The Digital Devil Saga games are a lot better in my opinion, with some of the best voice acting I've ever heard in RPGs. Persona 3 and 4 I like as well, despite my urge to kill whatever genius decided that someone should take the player for a complete idiot during battle. Devil Summoner 1 I liked as well, but its sequel for me had godawful loading times and a way-too-high encounter rate. Devil Survivor let me down as well, basically being escort mission hell and a grindfest towards the end, but I'm lukewarmly anticipating Strange Journey, given the decent reception it's received in Japan (then again, they give good scores to games I thought sucked).
