  • I just love these terrible little cookie cutter RPGs. With family and work I only manage to play about 4 big console releases a year now. But having games like this on my phone enables me to get 15 minutes in here and there keeping my RPG itch scrat…
  • Lost Odyssey and Final Fantasy VI both nailed it IMO. I love that "Night of the Living Dead" approach. The original movie has some kids talking for a bit and then BAM! Zombies! Right into it; setup and character development can come later. Thi…
  • ...near-constant crotch and butt shots... This is something I rather do enjoy, but I'd rather people that know my real-world persona not know this. I bought the first remake at GameStop... and was embarased. From now on I'm picking these up o…
  • This game was so off my radar when I heard it was a mobile game. Now I may need to read up on it.
  • I just hope they keep it a button masher. It's just not Star Ocean without button mashing.
  • This and 7th Saga are probably the only 2 traditional SNES rpgs I never finished. I tried so hard with this one, but could never make it more than 1-2 hours in.
  • Kind of reminds me of the boss battles in Blue Dragon. By then end of the game I kind of dug it, but the first time I was pretty... well... it was unexpected.
  • I've got a 42 inch tv on a lazy Susan next to my recliner. When I'm playing games I rotate it to face me and when I'm watching TV I rotate it so as not to block the view of the living room television. It's actually a pretty neat setup. The lazy S…

  • I actually think this is going to be the first current-gen RPG I'll play (not counting handhelds). Hopefully Nintendo and other publishers will push out a couple more Wii U exclusives to help justify my purchase.
  • Just finished the first one (remake) and bought this one yesterday. I thought the first one was just okay, but Vita and DS rpgs are just so convenient for my lifestyle. I really don't get the reusing dungeon thing.
  • I'm not excited about any of it. It's really just motion controls combined with video goggles. The goggles I could get behind, but I tried motion controls and they were not for me. And the AR stuff in Bravely Default was just disastrous. Sitti…
  • Yeah, it does look to be a bland Winter as far as anything new.
  • I'm going to wait a bit for this to see if it is something I'll enjoy. The art style is neat, but not something that necessarily appeals to me. From what I read, the game has a heavy focus on recruitment, but I'm worried it'll end up like those ga…
  • Best WD Localization: Albert Odyssey Worst (that I own): Lunar 2. The game is great, but in the manual notes Victor raves about the feature he added to the game where you use up magic experience when you want to save the game. I don't have it h…
  • Jessica for the win. I wish more JRPGs featured heroines like her.
  • Back in the SNES days, the most common weekend interruption to my game playing was friends wanting a turn. Fast forward a few years and it was a woman and a different kind of turn. Now, I can barely play half an hour without getting interrupted by…
  • I kind of like the way the Star Ocean games did it. Let me choose my girl, but don't let me spend 40 hours playing a game only to find out that some choice I made 2 hours in prevents me from getting a "good" ending.
  • I've been wanting to play this, but I bought it without a case and probably stuck it in the case with one of the other 100 or so games I own... so I can't find it.
  • Kind of makes you not want to play the better Kemco mobile games. Better to wait for a console or handheld port. Mystic Chronicles was pretty good, End of Serenity... not so much.

  • Stick with what works and tweak the basic formula with each release. That's what they do with the Tales games and it works. Sure, not all Tales games are great, but the ones that aren't are like a mediocre episode of your favorite show - still wor…
  • The games growing on me quite a bit now that my party is filling up. The facial expressions on the characters as they talk are done so well.
  • I'm digging it so far. The battle system certainly is not as polished as the recent console releases. Unless something changes plot-wise, it looks like I'm in for a nice crystal hunt. Been a while since I had a good one of those. The pacing ki…
  • Yeah that list of RPGs is what got me coming here so many years ago. It is so handy seeing every noteworthy RPG in list form, grouped by series. Sometimes I will just pull up the "Series" and "Other" tabs and then ctrl-click like 20 games and then…

  • I must go back to my original thought that any site that gave this game glowing reviews must not have really played it and therefore looses credibility in my mind. Impression <> review. Ask me 1 hour in what I thought about the game and I wo…
  • I think FF Dimensions worked well, same for FF IV: The After Years (though the pacing and story were a far inferior to the original.)
  • I've said it before... people were fans of what they thought this game was rather than what it really was -- a beautiful but very broken game. The idea was so cool that people formed opinions of the game before they ever played it. Just check out …
