Not sure why your topic says "1 and 2".  The second is news, sure, but the first one has been on PSN for years.

I wouldn't have even put this up if it were anything else, but Suikoden getting a psn release is pretty hooge.

how could you D

Anyway as much as I'd like to say "people should buy this and maybe we'll get another one", if that crappy Hyakunen game was an indicator for what any new entries in the franchise would be like, I'd rather the franchise be dead forever.

Yeah, as Dice said, we can just use this as a general Suikoden thread or something.

So, Suikoden III. Great Suikoden game or the greatest?
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

Both games can (politely) rot in hell for making me pursue the magical 108 and missing some fucker like 30 stars back that can't be got again.

Suikoden 1 wasn't ever available on the EU PSN, so those of us over here had to create a US account to get hold of it.    I've never played Suikoden 2 or 3 so I like this announcement.   

I replayed Suikoden 1 recently and even though it looks very dated some of the concepts in the game like the 1 vs 1 duels and large army battles do add loads of melodrama.   

edit: actually not sure if this is coming to EU or not...

Hey now, Suki 3 was probably the easiest Suikoden game to collect them all in.

III isn't particularly my favorite, at the time I actually felt it was a bit of a disappointment due to how how large of departure it was and how easy the Stars were to get.  II is my favorite, but it desperately needed more QA and a better translation.  A new translation would make it 10/10 for me, even if the glitches remained.

I always felt like the first was a decent game, but II is an example of a series taking everything good about the first and improving it for the sequel.

It's a crime, too, that Miki Higashino stopped composing after Suikoden II.  I've heard rumors that she got pregnant and had to take time off and that pretty much ruined her career, but I haven't really looked it up to confirm and may just be talking nonsense.  She's an amazing composer, whatever happened to her.

Also, as disappointing as IV was (how can you so thoroughly butcher a game that surrounds the ocean? Seriously.) La Mer is a very good and fitting opening song.

Good news. I've heard people say Suikoden 1 was on PSN before but I have never seen it. I Have a US account and have bought several RPG's that are not in the EU store like Chrono Cross, Legend of Dragoon and more but never seen Suikoden.

I've never played the games. Back in the day I was choosing between NHL98 and Suikoden in a used game store and went with NHL98.

I think all of the games except Suikoden 3 have come out in EU, but it seems Suikoden 3 is the most liked.

I wouldn't say III is the most liked, really.  II and III are about even in popularity, but you'll get more out of III by playing II first.  It's not necessary, just nice for cameos and seeing character progression that you wouldn't have without playing II (multiple former villains turn ally, for example).

I know, I know...but in my defense, it's just informing people that it happened...not like there was any sleeping with Sony employees to get this information out there,nyuck nyuck.
