I get paid on Friday, and my burning question is...

Do I buy Kingdom Hearts II this month or Suikoden V?

I would like to point out that I will be buying both eventually, but right now I can only afford one! At the moment, I'm probably leaning towards Kingdom Hearts, but as Suikoden should be out over there by the time I post this, it would be nice to hear some hands-on reactions!

Consider that Suikoden II is the Holy Grail of RPGs.

Consider then that Suikoden V is BETTER than II.

Yeah, easy choice. :P KHII's a good game, don't get me wrong. I just feel Suiko V is a much more rewarding experience.

Oh, my.

I fear I may have just soiled my undergarments in the hopes that your second consideration is accurate!

You want a game that gives you awesome gameplay with crappy story pacing and will probably be $19.99 in a few months? Get KH2.

You want a game with an awesome story and great system? Get Suikoden V.

I cast my vote for Suikoden V since it is cheaper.  Kingdom Hearts II will definitely go greatest hits.  I'm going to play the waiting game.  I have a huge backlog of games and there are mulitple rare (Atlus) games I want coming out in the next few months.  By the time I get around to playing KH2, it will be a greatest hit or at least have a price drop.

yep, my vote completely goes out to Suikoden 5 because of exactly what Hidoshi and Ash have stated. Kingdom Hearts 2 will in no doubt be incredibly cheap and easy to find in no time - While Suikoden 5 will become nothing but rare before you know it, best to grab it while the market is good.

Suikoden. I mean, if you are going to get both, it only makes sense to buy the one that won't be on the shelves for eight months :P

You can probably get through and complete Suikoden V quicker than Kingdom Hearts II, meaning you can buy that afterwards and experience both easier that way.

But were it me? Kingdom Hearts II. That shit is awesome.

No you can't/ KH2 is shorter by far.

Cast another vote down for Suiko V. I've only played 8 hours of it so far, but the game wins for any number of reasons.

I have no doubt that KH2 will be easy to pick up in the future, but I doubt Suikoden 5 will be that hard either.  I mean, you can pick up Suikoden 3&4 for dirt cheap these days.  You might argue that Suikoden 5 will sell better because it's a better game, but on the other hand, it's being released around the same time as Kingdom Hearts 2 & Metal Saga plus the general consensus on Suikoden 4 was that it wasn't a very good game so many people may have given up on the series.

I say Suikoden V as well. I hgive KH respect, but I find it too overhyped and will overshadow (along with FF) all these smaller RPG's which some are actually better in my opinion. Suikoden is a very underated series (outside here) so give the underdog some support. Suikoden V is not like IV at all so rest assured on that issue.

If only I can make my friends who only play IV see the light and give V a chance...
