Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distance and maybe the new Pokemon game hinted at, but that's about it for me.
452  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Favorite and Least Favourite Tactical RPGs on: February 08, 2011, 09:26:29 PM
My Favorites:

Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume - I liked it in spite of the crap it's gotten (though said crap's mostly come from RPGamer's reviewers, with whom I almost never agree), and would consider it the Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter of tactical RPGs.

Valkyria Chronicles - I'll admit I had to use a guide to beat some battles, but still had solid presentation.

Suikoden Tactics - Thought it translated Suikoden IV's gameplay decently to a tactical RPG, though then again I'm among the few who actually liked Suikoden IV.

Disgaea series - At first I really didn't like these games, but I grew to like them given the quicker-than-usual pace of battles and general addictiveness of the Item World.

Growlanser series - The first is one of my favorites, and the quick pace of battles is a definite draw for me.

La Pucelle Tactics - I actually like this a bit more than the Disgaea games since you can retreat from battles anytime and retain experience.

Shining Force series - I especially like that you never waste time even when losing a battle since you can retreat anytime and retain experience and money.

Average on My List:

Final Fantasy Tactics - I felt that most classes were useless (and hated having to learn item use from an entire class), and that only the story characters, especially Cidolfas, were any good, especially given Cid's ability to pretty much take on all enemies himself in the last chapter. Didn't like the points of no return, either, something I don't like in tactical RPGs.

Stella Deus - Loved the soundtrack and especially graphics, but the gameplay was meh in my book.

Phantom Brave - Unplayable unless you exploit the random dungeon / failure title experience-gaining trick.

Least Favorites:

Devil Survivor - Didn't like the sluggish endgame grinding and general schizophrenic difficulty.

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.

Yes, get them.
455  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Best RPG of the decade on: September 03, 2010, 02:27:50 PM
A solid list, but I'm fucking sick and tired of people using their opinions on the Knights of the Old Republic games to bash the Star Wars prequels. They were actually better reviewed than the original movies were when they were first release, and the original trilogy isn't that fucking perfect, either, and I could list a ton of plot holes in the original trilogy.

I enjoyed this game to the point that I did all the post-game content, my only complaint is the missable maps/items. Fuck the haters.
457  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The power of branding on: February 24, 2010, 12:30:43 PM
Just about any RPG with a big brand name attached to it, like Final Fantasy, Zelda, and Mario, will get inflated review scores, regardless of their true quality, and because of that, I don't find mainstream game journalism to be remotely credible.
458  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: What feature in one/few RPGs should they all have? on: February 23, 2010, 09:27:31 PM
Just let us fucking save the game anywhere. I think the argument that save-anywhere features make games easier is a load of bullshit, since games like The Dark Spire and the SaGa series prove otherwise. I think it's silly to believe that Japs don't experience shit like power outages or freezes in their games.
459  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Pacing in RPG's on: February 10, 2010, 04:10:31 PM
Suikoden's the only RPG series I actually play for the story since all games but Tierkreis take place in the same world, and each new entry expands upon the game's universe.

As for linearity/non-linearity, I find that linear RPGs tend to have better-developed plots, whereas non-linear RPGs tend to be lacking in that area. I don't mind non-linearity but not the "OMG where do I go next" kind like in SaGa Frontier, and don't mind getting absorbed for hours in sidequests, although I really think sidequests should add decently to the storyline.
460  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Xenosaga Episode II - Why does everyone hate it so much? on: February 09, 2010, 09:16:03 AM
I think the fact that battles take forfreakingever contributes to the hate. Episode III's my personal favorite.
461  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Pacing in RPG's on: February 05, 2010, 05:52:38 PM
I don't think mission-based gameplay lends itself very well to good storytelling, as it often makes the story feel disjointed.
462  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Yoshitaka Murayama Returning To Suikoden? on: February 03, 2010, 11:00:33 AM
blah blah blah
I'm really fucking sick of you fantards talking about Suikoden IV like it's a rape case. Yeah, it wasn't perfect, but it wasn't ZOMG TERRIBLE and I've certainly played far worse RPGs.
463  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2 on: February 03, 2010, 10:59:36 AM
At least Caravan Heart has a fan translation, which I'll probably check out sometime.
464  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Quest Monsters Joker 2 on: February 02, 2010, 06:45:12 PM
i dunno about you guys, but i would like to see a pokemon with these kind of graphics, though the classical is still good, im starting to get sick of it
465  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Nintendo reveals new RPG from Hironobu Sakaguchi and Monado becomes Xenoblade on: February 02, 2010, 11:31:54 AM
Is Xenoblade actually a Xeno game or just a different series?
