I definitely prefer Reverse/Rebirth to the main story of CoM.

I don't care much for the SaGa games although I enjoyed the WonderSwan Color remake of the first game and have been liking the DS remake of SaGa 2, although I've had to do a fair bit of grinding for the final battles.

I'm more than halfway through the Redwall series, having finished the final prequel, Lord Brocktree, and I'm enjoying it aside from the author's stereotyping of specific species as completely good or completely bad.

I don't really equate easy with boring, and more associate difficulty with frustration and pain and suffering. I have heard Bayonetta has mid-boss checkpoints, definitely a good anti-frustration feature.

I didn't care much for Chrono Cross's battle theme, unfortunately the most common track in the game, but the rest is enjoyable.

Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth - My progress has been somewhat sluggish, and I'm at floor three of the Group Date Cafe. It would have really, really helped if the translators didn't have characters address the chosen protagonist as "leader," maybe something else such as "sensei" would have sounded better. Thumbs down, for certain, but the game's not a total write-off, since the gameplay is reasonably engaging and strategic.

Saga 2 Hihou Densetsu: Goddess of Destiny - I'm still doing a fair amount of grinding for the final boss, and have messed around with different forms for my monster, and I did get somewhat far at one point against the last boss with my human protagonist as a healer, since I've gotten his spirit stat high.

Ys: Memories of Celceta - I'm only an hour in and have defeated the boss of the first dungeon. More than one of my top five RPGs are in this particular series, and so far I'm enjoying the hell out of it.

Beat Milla's side of Tales of Xillia and will write a review this evening, having finished Jude's side as well. Definitely impressed with the game aside from some parts with occasional vague direction on how to advance (I had to Google to find the "girl in red" in one of the towns, having spent between half and a full hour looking for her) and a frustrating fight on Milla's side.

I don't really care much for Japanese seiyuu butchering English words, and would rather they use actual Japanese names for skills/spells in their own voicework. So yeah...

I recall reading that QoS was being written as it was shot, which is almost always not a good idea.

Saw Mockingjay Part I with my folks today. They could've just done one movie out of the book since it only took me two and a half hours to read, even with a slowed pace, but it's all about money, dear boys and girls.

I'm a few hours in, playing as the Persona 3 cast, and I couldn't help but notice how godawful the voice acting is. Fuuka is still one of the most punchable characters ever in the history of RPGs, it makes no sense for actors with zero Asian ancestry to voice Japanese high school students, and the honorifics and the address by characters of the chosen protagonist as "leader" make the dialogue sound horribly unnatural. I would have rather they used actual Asians proficient in English to voice the characters or just leave the voicework in Japanese, in which case I wouldn't mind the honorifics since I do have some knowledge of the language.

As long as the gameplay is good, I don't mind how shitty the story is. Not that Persona 3 and 4 had bad stories, though, I appreciate more mature writing in RPGs.

The original Symphonia isn't that fucking perfect, either, and I thought its story was shit, ripping off films like The Empire Strikes Back and Soylent Green and other RPGs like Secret of Mana and Final Fantasy X. The cel-shaded graphics are overrated, too (and the PS3 version looked almost virtually identical to the GameCube version albeit with widescreen support), with all characters making the same fucking gestures over and over during dialogues and always looking happy even when they're not. Plus, they misuse "whom" in the fucking opening scene in voiced dialogue. Why voice actors today can't pick up on or question shit like that is beyond my comprehension. Personally, I thought the original Super Famicom version of Phantasia was the shittiest Tales game.

You a-holes are definitely free to express your dislike for various games, but don't fucking phrase it in a way that implies that everyone that likes a certain game is a complete idiot. Say instead, "I didn't like it" or "I didn't care much for it." Assholes like you are exactly what's wrong with debate in this world.

Sort of wondering how they'll handle the roguelike elements in the EO Mystery Dungeon game, the EO series in general being pseudo-roguelike in my opinion.
