    Wild ARMs 4 - Illsveil

    Turned out better than I expected.

    Well, I was playing Atelier Iris 2 and Shadow Hearts 3, then moved on to the SNES and Genesis Shadowrun games, and now I'll be moving onto whatever I threw in my duffle bag for my two week sabbatical before summer school begins. I think I tossed Castlevania: Curse of Darkness and Drakengard 2 in there, neither of which I have finished, but nonetheless enjoy. I might take another stab at Devil Kings, as well. Slaying hundreds of people on end is just so...rewarding (Heavenly Sword, I'm waiting for you...).

    my friend lent me his collection so im debating what to play sadly.
    SMT DDS 1, 2, Nocturne
    Kingdom Hearts 1,2
    Shadow Hearts 1,2, 3. (just finished 3)
    Wild Arms 4, Alter Code F.
    FF 12 Jap
    Suikoden 5, Tactics
    Dragon Quest 8 (Zzzzz)
    Magna Carta

    And thats just the RPGs. I really have no idea what to go with. I tried DDs1 but it slowed down hard to me.
    KH2 seems to kiddy, but I somewhat want to keep going.
    SH seems good, but hard to go from the new mechanics and gfx of 3 to an earlier.
    Wild Arms I aint played since 1.

    I beat Suikoden last night and I'm about to start Suikoden II. I've never played it before (though I've watched my fiancee go through it) despite owning it since 2000 or 2001. To be honest, I'm really looking forward to it.

    On PC: Chrono Trigger (excellent game)

    On PS2: Suikoden (trying to get all 108 stars with help from a FAQ)

    I remember about last year when I opted to replay FF3 on an emu.
    And found out Sabins blitzes are mostly based on his magic skill.
    made sure every lvl up he had a permanent +to mag power esper on.
    And sure enough, at one point people were attacking for 500-1000 and hes blitzin for 5-9k

    After having a bit of a break from console RPG's for a week or so, I ended up playing Atelier IRIS 2 for 13 hours today. Good feeling.

    Oblivian, we got X box 360 for my dads retiremant and I've played it every chance I get since. I'm also trying to play Suikoden IV on the side but it's kinda fallen to the way side.
    ...My two cents...

    As of 2 days ago, finished FFVIII again...

    Have DQ8 at home... Waiting for roomate to finish it +1month or so, so it\'s semi-new.
    I actually need a segestion... Preferable something downloadable on a rom, or a cheap game (that\'s findable) for GC, PS1, PS2, N64, or SNES.
    Playing SSB:Melee right now... But need an RPG fix.

    Two words...Paper and Mario. As for the Playstations there's always Suikoden in some way shape or form.

    Great idea.... Surprisingly, I havn\'t played Suikoden (any of them) yet... So maybe they can keep me occupied for the next 3 or 4 months. smile6.png

    Oh ya, it took me five years and 300 hrs to beat 3. Of coarse I spent time to get everyone and level them up.

    Finally beat DDS2, so now it's time to go into overdrive and make a big ol' dent in my backlog. ?I have Memorial Day weekend coming up so that should help me out quite a bit. But let's see the list is huge so I'll spare you all but those in the immediate future:

    FEAR (pretty far in this already)
    Resident Evil 4 (a bit late, I know)
    Onimusha 4
    Suikoden 5
    Oblivion (always being played in between other games)

    Elder Scrolls Oblivion : Done most of the side missions. Halfway or so through the main story line (63 hours on the game clock).

    Dragon Quest VIII : Quit playing it for awhile, but now I'm hooked (56 hours)

    Suikoden V : At the last boss need to lvl build (40 hours)

    I WAS playing Generation of Chaos for PSP... until I woke up and realized it was one of the worst games I've ever attempted to play in my whole entire life.

    I'm not kidding.

    Now I'm going to move on to Wild Arms IV, but I'm not exactly enthusiastic. The idea of a 13-year-old hero never appealed to me, and the reviews weren't exactly stellar. smile2.png

    Suikoden II is a blast, and I haven't even gotten my castle yet. Is it really so hard to put this much love into a game?

    New Super Mario Bros. is also fine gaming.

    SLI: Is Generations of Chaos really that bad? I had high hopes for it because it looked fun.

    Substitute Atelier Iris: Eternal Mana for Generations of Chaos and the same goes for me. Okay, maybe AI is quite THAT bad, but it's certainly not worth playing.

    I'm starting Front Mission 4 in about 45 minutes (which I've heard isn't as good as 3?), but I may have to put that on hold if I manage to find Suikoden V tomorrow. I finally have the money for it, but I've been too sick to go and get it. smile5.png

    If you manage to score Suikoden V, put Front Mission 4 away and never look for it again. smile22.png

    I popped in Kessen again for old times sake. ?God that's a fun game. ?But other than that, being recently married, I haven't had the chance or pportunity to really start up a new RPG.

    I know I've been stuck at the island passage ways, for a LONG time. ?I spent so long I found like ten non story things trying to figure it out.

    Hmm, don't know whether to feel sorry for you or congradulate you, I don't ever plan on growing up.

    E</td><td class="QUOTE"Idea Factory built Generation of Chaos under the assumption that its players would either have prior experience in the series, or have easy access to those earlier titles. Since the series had never seen daylight outside of Japan, this wasn't an entirely illogical assumption, and it explains the lack on an in-game tutorial. North Americans who have not imported any prior installments are in huge trouble, however. The instruction guide that comes with GoC isn't very informative, as it will tell players what certain in-game abbreviations mean, but not describe in detail what their function is, or why on earth the player would ever want to try them.

    On the bright side, NISA noticed this flaw and did take some measure to prevent it by releasing a downloadable guide for the game. The fact that it equates to about 70 instruction book-sized pages of reading should say something about just how deeply things needed explained. Unlike most standard RPGs, and even many TRPGs, Generation of Chaos is freaking hard to figure out with trail and error alone, and one can't just pick up and play relying on lessons learned in experience with other games. Using this guide helps the player make more sense of Generation of Chaos, and can make the game tremendously more enjoyable.

    So yeah. It can be fairly fun if you're willing to study it in a manner similar to how one would study the subject of an upcoming exam. If not, it's just going to be frustrating.

    Frustrating is a good word to describe Generation of Chaos. It was pretty confusing, and it hardly seemed worth the time.

    Did I mention the voice acting was BAD? I wonder if I should've picked to hear the Japanese voices instead...

    I'm about 3 1/2 hours into Wild Arms 4 right now, and it's really exceeded my expectations. The storyline isn't bad (so far), Jude isn't as annoying as I thought he'd be (but he's close), and the HEX system is original and fun. I'm pleasantly surprised.

    I didn't "score" FM4 or Suikoden V yesterday, so I started playing Skies of Arcadia again. I'll never tire of that game, I 'spose. It's one of those you can sit down to play for a few minutes and suddenly realize 15 hours have passed.
