I'll probably wait until all three chapters of Trails in the Sky are out on either the PSP or PC in North America before playing them, since I don't want to play the first chapter on the PSP only to have to replay it on the PC because XSEED abandoned it in favor of the PC versions, blah blah blah.

I'm playing DemiKids Light Version and I'm enjoying it a hell of a lot more than Devil Survivor, Persona 2, and all the other Megami Tensei games I don't like.

Beyond the Beyond had a lousy sewer dungeon made worse by an astronomically-high encounter rate.

Also, Radiant Historia definitely lives up to the hype.

God, it seems whenever I go onto a site about RPGs there's always some asshole who has to make an unprovoked attack against the works of George Lucas, so I stopped reading after that shitty comparison.

I'm playing some RPG-esque sims for the iPhone right now (and you "level up") within them, mostly from PocketGems.

FF7 is a bit overhyped, but with good reason, although I think it's aged horribly, particularly with regards to the Lego-man character models.

Demon's Souls - Wow. Words cannot express how much I hate this fucking overrated piece of shit. No way to pause the game other than quitting, no music during 99.9% of the game, no automaps, virtually no story, forced repetition if you die, generic graphics, blah, blah, blah. If I were an emperor, I would order this game's developers to be executed by shoving copies of this shitty title up their asses.

Valkyria Chronicles II - A fuck of a lot better than Demon's Shit, I mean, Souls.

Disgaea: Afternoon of Darkness - Has been basically one big grindfest for me in Etna Mode, but still a fuck of a lot better than Demon's Souls.

Radiant Historia - See above comments, probably the best time-travel RPG since Chrono Trigger.

Various Cell Phone Games, among them being Temple Run - I would play these over Demon's Souls anyday.

Go ahead, ban me, I dare you.

What I liked about FF9:
The graphics, look really nice on a PS2 with smooth texturing.
The soundtrack.
The variety of skills to learn from items.

What I didn't care much for:
Long loading times before battle.
Tetra Master was a huge step down from Triple Triad.
The plot.
309  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: How long do you play an RPG for in one sitting on: January 23, 2012, 12:17:54 AM
I typically play in one hour intervals to give my eyes a rest between games since it's sort of recommended during said playtime, unless I'm in a spot where I can't perma-save easily, in which case it can go for up to somewhere over two hours, for example, if I'm grinding in the Item World in the Disgaea games.
310  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: DO you Get 100% in every Rpg? on: January 23, 2012, 12:16:33 AM
I used to do the 100% completion thing, but my life has become chock full of commitments, i.e. a full-time job, so I don't anymore, unless doing so means some extra story.
311  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atlus Game Announcement Thread - Mark 2 on: January 19, 2012, 12:52:50 PM
I don't mind them cutting out most of the VA since I would rather the music be the voice of the game, anyway.
312  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Star Ocean 3 on: January 08, 2012, 12:26:23 AM
The Item Creation system would've been a hell of a lot better had they actually let you manually choose prices instead of randomizing it.
313  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Kingdom Hearts series plot, summed up in one Google Doc on: January 04, 2012, 11:02:02 PM
Even with one sentence and picture explanations it was confusing. Whoever is writing the story to these games (is it Nomura?) clearly got his calling wrong.

Sure as hell clears up a lot of confusion. Thank you, it fdefinitely warrants a topic of it's own.

Its - Possessive of it
It's - Contraction of it is
Its' - Not a real word

Before you use "it's" replace it with "it is" and ask yourself "does this sentence make sense?"

Second, I would appreciate the plot of the Kingdom Hearts games a hell of a lot more if they actually tried to be funny, and there's no fucking excuse for the lack of humor. It's hard to take seriously a plot with crossovers and cartoon characters.

lol teh prekwels suk teh originalz rool j0rj lookis r@ped mi chyldhud

Kidding, I actually know someone who liked the Prequels but didn't like KOTOR. I did enjoy KOTOR and its sequel and thought the writing was superior to that in all the Star Wars films. The writing in the originals is pretty shitty.

"Hold your fire? What, are we paying by the laser now?"
"Why you stuck up half-witted scruffy-looking nerf herder"
"We are fleeing into outer space with literally infinite directions to flee. However, we have decided we'll fly directly towards the fleet of storm troopers."
315  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dark Souls on: December 26, 2011, 05:09:25 PM
Yeah, I'm playing the first Demon's Souls which I got for Christmas, and it's probably the most fucking overrated game I've ever played. The Japs who decided that there shouldn't be a pause button or automaps should have their fucking heads chopped off.
