  • is it just me, or does that profile pic of the red haired girl kinda look like Clair from Heroes?
  • Well, one would probably be magna carta, whose battle system I sucked at terribly, and it seemed to be a rather interesting story. Breath of fire: dragon quarter was another game i could not really get the hang of, while dq8 was a game i never ma…
  • The 360 is trying to play catch up in teh rpg sphere, but seeing that only two or three major jrpg's or so have been released in the last one and half year, its not doing so well. Its banking on name recognition instead of letting niche players roam…
  • Well, The games are quite different, and just about the only thing they have in common is element harvesting and the colorful sprite based graphics. However, the first game is a whole lot more repetitive, and considerably less fun. Its item creation…
  • Well, I liked MK as well, its an rpg alright. Just because it has a different way of interacting with people does not make it any less of an rpg and more of adventure. And long cutscenes disqualify quite a few rpg's like the Xeno series (inc xenogea…
  • A net search revealed that those screens are from movies rendered via the in-game engine. If so, they are darn impressive. i dont expect such a level of graphics in actual gameplay, as there will probably be quite a few objects on screen. I do, howe…
  • Strangely, they look rather low quality for CG's. In fact, they look much like i would expect a very good playstation 2 game to look. Of course, there is no way the psp could support such graphics. Or is there?
  • This was a pleasant surprise at TGS, and looks great. Finally, I have something other than ffXIII to look forward to for the ps3. There has been more newws on the x360 front than the ps3's , shockingly. I hope the major RPG franchises show off ther …
  • The gameplay is rather disappointing. Blue Dragon is promoted as a game from the makers of Chrono Trigger, but the cookie cutter battles aren't what I expected. Its like a mix of final fantasy and Persona. I expected something much, much better. …
  • I too would seriously prefer a normal Y's game to the online version, since i do not see what the online version will have that would distinguish it from other cookie cutter online games. Still waiting for someone (konami!) to pick up felghana. A…
  • Agreed. Piracy hurts the industry as a whole, and rather badly at that. Though i must say that it was the pirated versions of many rpg's that got me into gaming the first place. Now that i can afford to buy them, i always buy the originals of those …
  • The only gripe i had with final fantasy ac was its exclusive focus on action over story. That said, the action was mind blowing. The best was probably the incredible number of elements included to wow the fans of the game. Fans would enjoy the mo…
  • nice to see that the tales series is getting some love, though i would still wish to see the original ps2 tales of destiny 2 come to the US as well...but that probably wont happen. tales of legendia was fun, but decidedly inferior to the other entri…
  • not bad, though teher are a ton of remakes. The news about the new PS2 secret of mana is fantastic, though most of the others were revealed quite some time ago. The best amoong them, though, seem to be the tri ace creations Vp lenneth and especia…
  • amano's art designs are rather....artistic?, a little too much imho. Still, news of a new ff cant be bad, i cant seem to get myself hyped up about ff12 after the so-so demo. its been quite some time since sq-enix produced anything halfway decent, ju…
  • strange...that is contrary to what i heard. Though taking into account the market size....... I do hope that xs3 breaks the 1m barrier...but that's just wishful thinking.
  • well, epi 2 wasent exactly blockbuster, but it did have decent sales in japan. its american sales suffered, but any japanese rpg outside of the FF franchise rarely sells well in america anyway. Still, i doubt there is any hope for a new game on the …
  • thanks for the info, Archmage. personally i loved the xs games, and the only game i am looking forward to more than this one is Silmeria. Its a pity this one is the last one though. I was really hoping they would eke out atleast one next gen game…
  • so not only allen, but mizuki and cannan are playable as well! excellent. The new "style" system seems to be a combination of the xs2 ether tree and the ether system of xs1. Its a pity that the turn based slot system is nowhere in sight though…
  • the graphics arent mind blowing, but the faces are much cleaner than say, ff12. Infact, all of the games you listed have varyingly difefrent art styles, so some may prefer the surrealistic look of Vp to the cold look of SMT DS, the chibi anime look …
  • oh...and in case somebody cant find him, he is in the 6th screenshot (of the newly posted ones). To the left of the new character leon.....
  • well well well, look who is here. I was shocked to see lezard valeth in previous screenies...but arngrim's there as well!!!!?????????? I do remember in the original, brahm referring to arngrim as an "old acquaintance". Arngrim's always been a mys…
  • for a second after reading the post, i actually thought thompson sued rpgamer ^_^..... i mean, knowing him, nothing is idiotic enough.
  • well, congratulations to teh winners. Being non-american, didnt get to participate, but still, a decent contest. Not that i would have waited so long to get my hands on the games if i really wanted them.......
  • they are higher res than what is expected, but not "doctored" per se. i have seen much better graphics for the ps2. Hopefully the game will come out on the ps2 this year. Its been a great year, what with games like shadow hearts 3, kh2, suikoden …
  • it seems that this suikoden builds up on both the concepts of s2 and s3 in a proper manner, which alone makes it worthwhile. Nice time, with games like grandia, shadow hearts, suikoden et all popping up...and ff12 being released in japan. Will…
  • sigh, makes me wish i lived in america, though i would preorder suikoden 5 in a snap, knowing that i would get it only a day after it's released in america (its imported from there), but also knowing i would never be able to obtain preorder bonuses.…
  • the surroundings look gorgeous, agreed. Its a pity i would have to throttle down my settings for playing the game, considering i wont be buying an x360 anytime soon. the character models have always been the sore point of the elder scrolls series…
  • Mitsuda would indeed have hit the spot, but yuki isnt half bad, jsut a different style of music. xenosaga 2 had some seriously good soundtracks...but also some rather bad ones. i found that the soundtracks in the movies was generally much better. …
  • wait...valkyrie profile:lenneth for the ps2? was it not a psp only title, with the sequel silmeria being the ps2 one? has it been released for the ps2 as well?
