I just hope, as I have before, they don't reintroduce the negative elements of older Persona games such as the conversation system in the first and both parts of the second game, which drove me to a guide, not a sign of good development. I'd also say ditch the honorifics since they make the dialogue often sound unnatural especially with the voice acting (and I hope to God they don't have the protagonist's allies address him as "Leader"), and another game that takes place in Japan, The World Ends With You, did just fine without them.

I downloaded Atelier Rorona Plus recently, having played the original version yet getting stuck with a Game Over since I couldn't fulfill a request in time. This time I'll make it a point to keep multiple save files in case that could happen again.

Personally, 3 is my least favorite SO due to the vague item creation system, but 4 definitely wasn't perfect, I'll concur.

Beat it today. Was generally enjoyable, and I don't mind short games at all.

I picked up the recent iOS release of this game, and it has a bit of a learning curve but sort of feels like a cross between Final Fantasy XIII and Parasite Eve.

Any one else play previous versions or are working on the latest release? This is my first time since I don't own a PS4/Xbone/graphically-advanced PC.

I can live without 3D.

I might get this since it has an easy mode, but I didn't care much for the first game, even though reviewers basically said "even if you don't like tactical rpgs you'll like this." I don't normally like strategy RPGs but still didn't like the first game.

Yeah, the reason is that the rest may be good on their own right, but they're also "classic", like overhead view and sprites stuff made for portables or older gen consoles. VIII is "classic" in many ways, but it's got a big 3D world and models that weren't atrocious tier either so it felt like a long awaited upgrade (that never happend again.)

Another thing that made this one stand out to me, purely from the superficial point of screenshots and videos, is the full 3D battles (in the sense of all members being present and the battles being viewed from a variety of angles). I really dislike those first-peron turn based battles. Are there any others in the series that aren't first-person?

Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker's battles aren't first-person, neither are IX's.

I recently started playing Xillia 2 and am liking it. The medical debt storyline is to me a nice break from the typical RPG norm.

I'm rereading the Outlander and Song of Ice and Fire book in preparation for the forthcoming episodes on their inspired TV series. I've been taking notes on my iPad while reading so that I remember things better when the episodes actually air, and so I can write more detailed reviews than the half-assed ones I've done on Amazon and in my LJ without notes.
