Playing through Mass Effect 2 to get extra ready for Mass Effect 3. PC was better than PS3, but since I'm getting ME3 on PS3, I should have a save to import.

With the big deal they're making out of it, one can hope it's more than just the game arriving on Steam.

Tried the ME3 demo, thought the shooting had quite a bit less umph to it than ME2.

Excited, nonetheless.

Okay, finished me2 and spoilers made me cancel my preorder of me3. Anyway wondering what I should play next. Has anyone played both Wild Arms 1 and Altercode F; which one do you prefer? That or I am just going the knock out the SMT games I have yet to play, which are strange journey and the two devil summoner games.

Doesn't matter. My money, all of it, will go to them. If Zelda OoT didn't exist, BGII would be the best game ever made.

Now the question is will they incorporate all the cut content that was later fan patched back in? HD "complete" remake... :drool:

How did I not see Tales of Graces coming out in 2 weeks?

Persona 2: Eternal Punishment confirmed for PSP. Okay Atlus, every Persona game is on the PSP, Your big goal for milking us for money is over. Now it's time to lift them hands up and stop jerking off to Chie on Yukiko porn and get to developing something that ends in FIVE.

Well, it would have to be more than just the old files, but if they are offering an upgraded version of the original games, I might buy. I never did finish either game (tho I came close with the original Baldur's Gate.)

And on the PS3. I don't have a PSP and don't plan on getting one.

So, I asked this near the end of the old thread, but never got an answer. Do you think a walkthrough is a good idea for Radiant Historia? The only thing I know about the game is that there's time travel involved, and that has me worried that things can be missed.

I've played both when they each came out. I'd say go with Alter Code F, it has better graphics, additions to the story, more playable characters and most other things were generally made better. The original PS1 version aged horribly.

I'm pretty sure there aren't any missables since you can just go back in time and do any sidequests/take any paths that you missed.

i've only played through half but i don't think you can miss anything because you can replay chapters over and over...

Thanks for the heads up, as soon as I finish Secret Files 2 I am going to probably play alter then.

Crotch,

Your opinion on Jade Empire?

Combat can be wonky and cumbersome at times, but it mostly works. Many interesting combat styles, though. Unremarkable plot and characters (amusing as Henpecked Hou is in a fight). Great aesthetics. Has a vague feel of "action KotOR for dummies". Uses a binary morality system, but at least it's more-or-less consistent about it, unlike a certain science fiction trilogy whose final installment is about to be released.

Interesting experiment. Better than Neverwinter Nights and Dragon Age 2, but worse than... most other Bioware games. Not a bad diversion, but you've got Nier to power through, mister. Anythin' more specific ya need?

Persona 5 has been pretty much confirmed as being in development.

whooo~!!!

I beat Suikoden V a few days ago!!

it was aiite. tries to hard to be Suikoden II, which is by all means a better game.

so here's my problem now,

I need a new RPG to play!!

I have a few choices but one I definitely have no motivation to start at the moment is Xenoblade.

but if I dont play Xenoblade then that shyt'll come out in america and every1 will get to play it.

and then I will no longer be cooler than everybody by having played it before yallz.

and being cooler than everyone is VERY important to me and all I stand for.

>_<

also, the price of this game frikken plummeted on ebay!!

so if u wanna pay $50 for it when it comes out do that,

or pay $25 to get it now.

I see, thanks.

Started Nier earlier tonight and got the book dude. Shouldn't the townspeople be more startled by a magical talking tome? I don't know, I thought the main character's excitement was strongly disproportional to the people he was informing of his quest. "Oh, Grimoire Wess from the legends? Cool..."

Anyways, I was really impressed by the first boss fight, the embedded cutscenes worked really well. Combat is good enough so far, just not a fan of how it feels like I'm fluffing pillows. If they changed the blood spurts to feathers this game would be golden.


And after the opening sequence, does it say 1,312 years later? Or 1.312 years later? Super confused.

I'm probably one of the few who think Suikoden V is best in the series. The story was better and I thought the characters were more interesting.

If you want a new RPG why not wait a few weeks till Tales of Graces? If not I can always recommend Wild Arms 5. One of my favorite PS2 RPGs

I don't remember the main characters reaction, but they live in an already fucked-up world, seeing a floating talking book wouldn't be mind-blowing.

i think many would play suikoden 5 just below 2 or above 2.

i don't think it tries to be like 2 at all, though.
2 was mostly about the dynamic between your character and jowy and the different methods they want to use to achieve peace

5 was more about power plays by characters behind the curtains
