    In my case that depends a lot of "when" the games will be released in Europe sad.gif

    I know that FFX-2 will be released on february and that's a must-have.

    Then I want to get FF:CC (I bought a GameCube just four days ago) and Star Ocean 3, but I still don't know their release date.

    What happens after FFX? ?How does the story continue?


    Final Fantasy: Chrystal Chronicles

    Square/FF returns to Nintendo. ?Is the magic still there?


    Star Ocean 3

    ENIX games are great. ?I just wish they would publish more games in North America

    I've decided that Rat Hunter 3-D (Final Fantasy 11) is actually pretty good, once you download all the necessary files and patches! ?Now I can prove to the world once and for all that I'm the undisputed KING of Tetra Master!! ?phear my l33t skillz... ?(sarcasm)

    I don't actually have the game, it would make my poor little Compaq crap its pants. ?My roommate's got it though... and so if Santa brings me lots of computer upgrades for Christmas, maybe I'll pick it up. ?If not, I'm going for FFX-2. ?I don't care what any whiny, namby pamby fanboys think about the "unthinkable, tradition breaking" sequel to a Final Fantasy, I think it looks pretty cool, and from the reviews I've read it sounds fun. ?

    Final Fantasy X-2, because I loved Yuna, and am happy to see her get developed further. Plus, FFX was one of my top FFs, only behind IV and VI, IMO.

    Shadow Hearts. I'd been interested in this one for a while, and it sounds pretty interesting. I've heard a lot of good things about the main, and the prospect of a good personality as he sounds to have is too much to pass up.

    Rhapsody. It's been on my get list for a while, but I can never seem to get ahold of a copy of it. A friend of mine has it, and I just loved everything about the game. Such a sweet and lovable story... I just can't resist.

    Well, lately I've bought Castlevania: Lament of Innocence.

    And then, I went into EB Games and found a new copy of Chrono Cross for $20 Canadian. ?That's frickin' amazing, I think. ?Plus, it has the Square-Enix logo on it. ?I didn't even know they rereleased it. ?Oh well.

    And third, I'm going to buy FFX-2 the second it hits store shelves.

    </span><table border="0" align="center" width="95%" cellpadding="3" cellspacing="1"><tr><td>Quote </td></tr><tr><td class="QUOTE"Bhs: Its just that YS III was side scrolling action, and for me battling was a bit unbalanced and hard. Im always gettin whopped! Maybe the over head view would be a bit better...[/QUOTE]<span id='postcolor'>

    The overhead view is much better, believe me. The game can be excruciatingly difficult or ridiculously easy depending upon which difficulty you decide on using; if I remember correctly, there are up to four depending on whether you play Y's Eternal, Y's II Eternal or Y's I and II Eternal Story (which I assume is both games combined into one long game). The game is fun, but still pretty strange. You don't really attack enemies, so much as run into them and watch them explode in a bloody mess of flying body parts. The enemies still damage you of course, but you can reduce the chances of that occuring by running behind them and hitting them from the back. The graphics leave a lot to be desired. They aren't the best 2D graphics I've ever seen, but they get the job done. The opening animation is stunning though, and the music is fantastic which I suppose is to be expected from a Falcom game. Overall, it's a fun way to pass the time but it certainly isn't the best game I've ever played. However, it is much better than Y's III in my opinion. I'm very interested in Y's VI The Ark of Napishtim. I understand that you actually have to attack enemies to kill them, instead of touching them and watching them blow up. It's a PC game, so the price tag is fairly steep; I've seen it at shop.himeya.com for $99.00. One of these days I'll be sure to pick it up.

    Final Fantasy X-2:
    I'm getting it like tomorrow or the day after that. The game looks really good even though some people can't look past the design, it's what's beneath that matters.

    Xenosaga episode 2:
    I downloaded a trailer and I'm completely in love, Marguilis has changed his blade and the position of it, looks really promising.

    Sword of Mana:
    Always liked the Mana-series, should be interesting.

    Quentin McLeod: Yea I got FFX-2 the other day and its damn good. I thought it wouldn't be a good as FFX but it really is. I mean, no other RPG usually satisfies me then the ones made by Square-Enix...

    I saw the Xenosaga 2 trailer also...looks 10X better than the first.

    Sword of Mana...yea looks promising.

    Let's see...the next three RPG's I plan on buying will be:

    *Final Fantasy X-2 - Final Fantasy X is my all time favourite Final Fantasy & I'm really looking foward to what has happened to Yuna, Rikku, & all of Spira during those couple of years that have passed since FFX.

    *Xenosaga Episode II - The Xeno games are my ultimate favourite RPG's. Xenosaga I was amazing, and after seeing plenty of gorgeous screenshots, I am very eager for the game to come out. (2005? *laughs*) The graphics looks really good & I would absolutely love to know more about the URTV's past. I wonder if they'll ever put in Deus...

    *Gensou Suikoden IV - After playing Suikoden III, I know that the Suikoden series is one of the best for RPG's. (Still need to find that rare GSII for under $80). GS4 looks rather interesting & it has a whole new 3-D look than GSIII. At first I thought it would take place after III, but now that I've read it will take place 100 something years before GSI, I wonder if Yuber will still be in there. ^__^

    1) Legend of Mana. >.< Because my copy was stolen, and the demon in my brain that commands me to go back and play back through games when I miss something is poking me, damnit!

    2) Sword of Mana...because the original FFA on Game Boy kept me sane on many a long, long trip, and being an Army Brat, that meant 4 long, long trips a year.

    3) Star Ocean 3...because I got horribly attached to 2, and this looks nifty.

    (And because FF:CC is on *DAD's* Christmas list, and I'm sure the rest ofthe family will get drug into it....and I went and pre-ordered FFX-2, which is going to get played now that I have days off classes! Mwah hah hah hah! As for .hack...I got stuck on the first one, wandered off, haven't gotten back to it yet, and don't feel like spending the money that'd go into buying the whole bloody series.)

    2.FF9 > I have seen some video clips and it looks pretty interesting, I would like to get it.

    3.FFX-2 > I have already played FFX and i loved it,I don't see why I shouldn't get the sequel.

    1. Sudeki, it looks great, everything I have read about has been extremely positive.

    2. Fable, same as above, just looks great.

    3. Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines, I love things involving Vampires, plus its being devoloped by troika.


    Those are the three I think will be out first anyway. Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles doesn't really count as an RPG IMO.

    Wind Waker. There's a Gamecube for me under the tree, as well as Metroid Prime. Metroid was cheaper than Zelda, so I missed out on getting it for Christmas. And my one friend who has it but never plays it just had a baby, (like hours ago) so I won't be borrowing it from him any time soon. Everyone at my house is down with the flu, and I ordered him to keep that baby away until everyone's healthy. So I'll have to borrow from someone else.

    Skies of Arcadia: Legends. I had the original for Dreamcast, and the whole thing was stolen when I was only two hours in. That's not acceptable.

    Tie between Sword of Mana and Mario and Luigi. Because I needs me some good GBA roleplaying action.

    Honorable mention goes to Fable. Whether the game ever comes out or not is seeming to be somewhat of a fable, but since the game looks so amazing, I'll wait as long as they tell me to.

    Haven't played any? I suggest you track down a copy of Suikoden II before Suikoden III.

    BTW, Suiko III isn't THAT good, but its a pretty decent game. Once you get past the 25 hour prolouge(the most annoying, stupid waste of time I've ever seen in a game...)the game gets good.

    Should I just go ahead and buy the first suikoden befor the 2nd. or does it not matter?

    You won't miss anything storywise, but if you can, you really should try to get a copy of Suikoden I, just because it's such a great game, IMO.

    You should play all three in order, if you ask me. I mean, you can play them in any order you like, but the overall plot will make mor sense if you play them in order.

    That is, if you can get a hold of any originals today... especially Suikoden II is hard to get a hold of without paying at least 150 USD.
