Suikoden Tierkreis is an ok addition to the series but it was actually my least favorite in the series but it was still good.  Many people complain about the main characters voice because he talks REALLY FAST!!!  I'd give it a 7/10 or so.  For $20, thats a good deal to me.

Good RPG, not a good Suikoden. I tend to play Suikoden to get away from a lot of the tropes that Tierkreis used: childish characters/dialog, obvious good/evil sides, overly fantastical/sci-fi plots, etc. Tierkreis is a good RPG, but it really doesn't feel very Suikoden to me. It was more like "Baby's first Suikoden". Still enjoyed it though.

Seems like Konami could be interested in putting out Suikoden VI possibly by 2012. I remember Konami on Facebook said something like "We are not at the moment making a new Suikoden game but we would like to hear your opinions on the series."

It was something along those lines. I predict a Suikoden VI st E3.

Don't get my hopes up only to be dashed by another pichinko game. D:

That facebook post was basically a response to a bit of a 'spamming' campaign by some militant pro-Suikoden fans so I wouldn't read anything into it.

I'm not sure what about that quote would make you think they plan on putting out another Suikoden anytime soon, all it says is that they're not making one right now.

I saw Suikoden V and Tactics for fairly cheap at Gamestop. I read reviews on both of them, but I really can't decide whether to get them or not when I beat my current list of PS2 games. It's probably one of these or either the Xenosaga(s) or Persona 4 (or whatever SMT games may be at Gamestop).

Basically, my question is whether Suikoden V/ Tactics are anything special compared to the other stuff I mentioned.
If it'll hold Jello, Utah will put Jello in it.

SuikoV is one of the best in the series. I haven't played Tactics, but it seems to get "okay" reviews.

Suiko V is definitely worth getting.

I have Tactics but haven't gotten around to it yet.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

Is there anything particularly special about Suikoden V in comparison to PS2 SMT's, P4, or the Xenosaga series that would put it higher up on my PS2 list? Other than the 108 recruitable characters thing. I guess that's almost enough to put it well above Xenosaga...

It's Suikoden.

Also, the story is very good - it just takes a while to get going.

And the music is excellent.
