    Blue Dragon was really good but yeah, it was easy. I don't want to talk about how much time I spent leveling and stuff in that game for cheevos.

    Lost Odyssey is the best JRPG of this generation.

    I got halfway through your post and I was about to suggest Lost Odyssey

    Then I finished reading your post

    And uh, I got nothing

    Actually, I misspoke here. I meant to say it's the best JRPG on the Xbox 360. I have a tendency to forget about handhelds and such.

    Tales of Vesperia.

    Thanks for trying.

    Lost Odyssey undoubtedly had a better narrative. But gameplay flow was absolute shit.

    Tales of Vesperia.

    Thanks for trying.

    I liked Lost Odyssey slightly better only because I'd been looking for something that played more like an old school JRPG and Lost Odyssey fit that bill perfectly.

    Both of them are amazing games and I wish they would release more like them. Gonna have to get Tales of Graces for PS3 when it comes out.

  • Baroque And RollBaroque And Roll Registered User regular
    Yes Steve yes!

    Tales of Graces f. I want.

    Can someone explain to me the appeal of last story.

    I was about to say that tales of vesperia was on reflection a pretty bad game, but you did say best JRPG, so I suppose it could still be a technically accurate assessment

    I could never get into Tales of Vesperia. I think it was the storyline that killed it for me. Also, the fighting was fine but your teammate AI was atrocious.

    The storyline was pretty ho hum but at least Yuri is a straight balla for most of it


    Also I started playing Xenoblade this evening and wheee doggy the combat is fun (though I wish I could turn down the volume on the in combat voice acting, good lord)

    the voice acting in Blue Dragon was like some serious torture

    I've been playing that! It's pretty good, I like the grid combat. And the time travel stuff is pretty cool and kind of mind bending at times.

    Why wouldn't you?

    I like that it's easy to go back and pick up sidequests because of the time travel aspect. I don't think anything is 'missable' like in so many JRPGs.

    Taking another break from Xenoblade because of sidequest overload and I'm now playing Yakuza 2, doing missions instead of the story.

    If you hate Tales games, Shorty, you're not gonna like this one then.
    The mystery project Capcom, Sega, and Namco Bandai were rumored to be working on has finally been revealed. Website Andriasang, citing advance copies of Famitsu, says the collaboration is called Project X Zone.

    Project X Zone is a strategy RPG for the 3DS. Characters from different franchises like Street Fighter and Virtua Fighter will team up in pairs for fighting scenes initiated during combat. Based on the information from Hachima blog (via Sgcafe), the characters showed off and announced for the Capcom side so far are Ryu and Ken, X and Zero from the Mega Man series, Demitri and Dante (Darkstalkers and Devil May Cry respectively), and Chris and Jill from the Resident Evil series.

    The party members from the Sega side are Shinguji Sakura and Ogami Ichiro from Sakura Wars, Ulala and Touma from Space Channel 5 and Shining Force respectively, Kurt and Reila from the Valkyria Chronicles series, and Pai and Akira from the Virtua Fighter franchise.

    From Namco Bandai's stable, players will get to use Sanger Somvold from Super Robot Wars, Jin and Xiaoyu from the Tekken franchise, Kos-Mos and T-elos from Xenosaga, Yurie and Estelle from Tales of Vesperia, and Black Rose and Kaito from the .hack franchise. A trailer for the game will be up this month.

    the tales games aren't bad because of the characters

    they're bad because the system sucks

    and that right there is a game where I get to play Zero sooooooo

    sounds pretty rad
