I guess I'm the only one who thought this one was good, but not great.
I like symphonia more

and in terms of Xbox 360, I thought Star Ocean was better.

... I know it's only $17, but I really really want a brand new copy of the Limited Edition version with the steelbook case. Cheapest I found it for was on ebay for $159.00, though.. :/


I just looked and saw one auction for 24 dollars .....

I feel like an idiot. I had two copied of the limited edition, one being sealed, and I lost them both in a move.

A brand new copy? Can you post the link b/c I'm not finding it.

On another subject -- I heavily enjoyed Symphonia when it came out on the GC! I've heard people go back and forth over which is a better game, but I am still very much looking forward to playing Vesperia... at some point in the future. My backlog has grown into some kind of enormous monstrosity! :evil:

That's "Like New," though.

Such an underrated RPG, Blue Dragon. It's not great but it's certainly a little charmer and far better than most of the JRPGs this generation (i.e. Last Remnant, Infinite Undiscovery, Magna Carta 2).

Ha! Yeah right, Last Remnant is an amazing game, you probably just weren't good at it.

I've had a couple not-so-satisfactory transactions with Gohastings... regardless of the deals they have, I'm now reluctant to do business with them.

I know this is off-topic, but the latest example: About 3 weeks ago, I purchased what they advertised on their website as a brand new copy of Mario Vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis for the DS for $29.99. Well, a few days later I received the package in the mail and opened it up to discover that it was not March of the Minis, but the latest M vs. DK iteration, Mini Land Mayhem.

I contacted their customer support that same day, and have yet to hear anything still. I intended to buy the Mini Land Mayhem game at some point, so I figured I would just hang on to it in the end, but it's the principle. This is the 2nd time I've had an issue like this and it will certainly make me stay away from them in the future due to really awful customer service and an incredibly disorganized website.

All coming in the mail, all purchased this week:
Mass Effect 2
Record of Agarest War
Tales of Vesperia
Resonance of Fate

Count Fable 3, FFXIII, and Dragon Age Origins Ultimate Ed. [which is still unopened], that is 7 RPGs/SRPGs in 1.5 months since I got my 360. I am a RPG freak ._.

Anyway, is Vesperia multi disk?

No, the entire game is on one disc.

As Rozz said, it's on one disk. It's a very long game but there aren't very many cut scenes. Most are generated with the game engine but when they have a "real" one, it's like, HOLY SHIT!

hahahahahahahahahahah [breaths] hahahahahahahahaha

Sorry, needed to collect myself there. Last Remnant an amazing game? You haven't played many JRPGs then. Last time I checked the story usually counts for something. If you're telling me the story in Last Remnant is amazing ... well, I should be able to convince you to buy a paper bridge in Arizona for $5 mil.

IMHO, whether a game is good or bad has very little to do with whether one is good at it. Having played so many JRPGs (Ar Tonelico, Radiata Stories, Legend of Dragoon, Valkyrie Profile 1 & 2, Vagrant Story, Xenosaga 1 & 3 (skipped 2), Wild Arms 5, Tales of Legendia, Abyss, Shadow Hearts Covenant and New World, Grandia III, etc.), I can tell a good game when I see one, and Last Remnant is about as glitched and cliched as they come. Oh, and don't get me started on dying protagonists ... I love how this one, Magna Carta 2 and Infinite Undiscovery almost blend together when it comes to the endings (lol).

I won't say Last Remnant was a disaster. Check the .hack series for disaster or may be even Romancing SaGa -- but it's crazy to call it "amazing." I'd easily recommend FF13 and may be even Eternal Sonata over Last Remnant any day of the week.

Sorry, man, but you'll like this one. As others have said, for better or worse, it's among the best JRPGs this generation.

Hopefully, Atlus' Catherine can deliver next year.

Everything said about this game is true, it's an exceptional JRPG and one of the best games on 360.

I wish the Collector's Edition would get a reprint too, I'd love to have that sitting on my shelf.

I got it for $29.99 shipped but it comes with the LE's Mousepad and Pillowcase, so technically it was for less. Check my topic for AksysGames' Deal with it sale: http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=281066

Yeah I saw that, just do not really think I need the mousepad or the pillowcase, mousepad I might be able to swing but I seriously doubt my wife would want to lay on that.

I was waiting to borrow it from a friend, but I just saw the price go even lower to $16.99! I couldn't stand it and thought might as well support Bandai Namco, so they can produce more Tale of games hopefully....

Don't know much of anything about this game or the series, but I figured at just over 15 bucks; why not?

I also picked up Resonance of Fate for under 20 on amazon.

Picked it up at 18 - even if it drops, not that huge of a loss. Also picked up Monopoly the electronic Edition. It was only 10 bucks.
