I don't ask that a every game's story be riveting, but I really think they need to stop being as pretentious. If you want to write a serious story, make me care about it. Otherwise, it's probably easier to go for the "charming" (IE fun adventure) route, which is why I like games like Grandia and FF9 a lot.

Let be honest, when you play a game from the MegaTen franchise your standards in JRPGs become too high to reach (or that's just me?).

So far, the game looks like my cup of tea. But Square Enix being Square Enix are going to piss off fans in some way... Final Fantasy XIII for example was a big "Fuck you" for me. I mean, X-2 is a more complete game than XIII.

Either way, we just have to wait for a trailer showing some gameplay before starting to screaming like madman.

I'm with you. Shin Megami Tensei III Nocturne was one of my first JRPGs. :D

Oh yeah, this I can agree with, though more importantly it needs to avoid being obnoxiously stupid and having drawn out cutscenes. SO3 was acceptable enough for me there, but watching SO4's cutscenes... yeah, that definitely crosses the line.

There's other factors I blame too there (like reading quality books!), but MegaTen IS the only RPG series I typically give any crap for the story of anymore.

I can't tell whether that's supposed to be Captain Picard or an Alien from Aliens.

This game can be the best thing ever since porn, and I don't care.

which is why I like games like Grandia and FF9 a lot.

Agreed. I think those had good storylines and I kind of liked all characters...
I don't ask for something super-duper-never thought about before, but... Something refreshing or interesting/loveable characters for a change.

Seeing the main char of Versus makes me think of Squall to be honest. He gives the same "I can do everything on my own and don't need anyone" air. And I never liked Squall because of that (or Cloud for that matter). Zidane in comparision was ALIVE.
Lightning in 13 at least developed into something better, but her 'basic attidude' was the same.

Oh well. For the time being all we can do is wait and see...

I was in NeoGAF today seeing if there was something interesting to read, and I find this this thread with a lot of details about Agito XIII.

Also, this post by duckroll tells you why you should be excited about a *gasp* portable RPG.

But the word "portable" already doubles my excitement! Well, sometimes anyway.

that premise of "demons" invading earth never seems to get old for a lot of people.

I wouldn't really say that applies to ALL the games, and execution's a factor too anyway. SMT1, 2 and Strange Journey certainly aren't the same as Doom!
