    hey, iwakura-senpai - wouldn't you say Star Ocean: The Last Hope - International is a good PS3 rpg to get if you're short on them?

    God no.

    Not so much in regards to time, but in that it looks really bad.


    Get Nier or Resonance of Fate(though Nier's the shorter of the two).

    It takes a while, but once you get it, you'll be shooting people into the air, smacking them down, and playing dress up in no time.

    RoF is neat.

    But goddamn is it unforgiving.

    I played it for a few hours and eventually just gave it back to my friend, telling him, "This game isn't really for me."

    He understood.

    Is the story good? (I don't have a very demanding benchmark for good, by the way - cliched jrpg fare that's at least a little bit solid is fine.)

    What little I played did not make me groan, which is a hell of a lot more than I can say for the two hours I bothered with Star Ocean 4.

    If I had enjoyed the combat system more, I definitely would have kept at it.

    I'm kinda surprised they're not releasing it on Feb. 14.

    I mean, they're already a stone's throw away from Valentine's Day. Why not go for it?

    Kazaka, why would you even want to touch the Star Ocean series
    I mean
    Why

    Has there been a really great jRPGs in the classic style* this gen beyond the SMT series? I always thought Lost Odyssey looked cool but I never did get to play it because it's 360 exclusive.

    *Basically, fairly reminiscent of the SNES generation's RPGs, albeit with a few newer mechanics. Demons' Souls and Valkyria Chronicles don't count.

    Star Ocean is a good series.

    And Lost Odyssey was pretty darn good for the most part. It had some INCREDIBLY difficult fights, especially at the start. But it is a good RPG. My biggest beef with Star Ocean was some of the writing made the hero so fucking unlikeable, it was painful to play the game.

    The best(if not the only good) PS3 RPG exclusive is Demon's Souls. Disgaea 3 is fun, but not as good as 1 or 2.

    I'll have to check out 3d Dot at some point, but it's more of a Zelda clone. (Not necessarily a bad thing)

    Also, I'd love to make an RPG in my spare time for the iPhone or a flash game or something.
    I just need to find some "Spare time"

    yeah 3D Dot is fantastic

    but only if you loved and played the shit out of the original Zelda without a guide

    because there are several points at which they just kinda don't tell you where to go next and it can be frustrating if you're not into the whole exploration thing(and if you're not then why the hell are you playing it?)

    Thing about Demon's Souls, is it lives and breathes off the multiplayer. You come for the experience, multi keeps you coming back.

    The annoying thing about Japanese demon's Souls is that dodge, roll, and such are mapped to X. Muscle Memory fucks me up so hard on that one.

    Also Star Ocean 3 is the worst game with a real budget and half-decent graphics for the time that I've ever played.

    I tried so hard to get into it, I really did. Was bored out of my mind for 30 hours and then gave up. I dunno if I just can't stomach Final Fantasy anymore, or if it was actually a boring game.

    Listen, people, if you, like me, are a broken person who has a great void left in them from what is now called The Great Tales Incident wherein the Namco Tales Studio was basically anointed for its Extreme Unction and then left to whither, you may look to unsavory sources for jRPG joy.

    That's all I'm saying.

    The only reason I got through FFXIII is because I actually liked the battle system quite a bit.

    That's also the reason I played through Ar Tonelico 1 & 2.

    I don't really recommend doing that, though.

    I really am digging the look of this game. Im cautious about getting to excited about it though. With how "Adult" themed it seems to be, I just dont feel like we will get it in the states unless its an extremely neutered version.

    There doesn't seem to be anything that explicit in the game. There's some implied sexual situations(sans nudity), and likely some blood and gore from Vincent dying horribly if you fail.

    You can shoot a dude and have him explode in such detail that you could get a degree in anatomy, but god forbid someone see a nipple.

    But only a woman's nipple, dude nipples are ok.

    Which blows my mind. Then again, Australia isn't fine with either of those in our games - so we're fucked either way. Glad I moved to the US.

    Hyped as hell for this.

    There's been another update on the website - go to the Cellphone and select 'Mail'. There's a message from Catherine (which I can't read. D:) and clicking the flashing button lets you select how to reply from two options.

    Augh, need a translation.

    As I understand it, the first question on the website asks about your taste in women; shy and quiet or brash and seductive. Something like that.

    I bet the questionnaire is along those lines.


    Also, I preordered this yesterday. We'll see if Atlus USA gets to it before I do.
