Yeah, Figured a price drop for Witcher 2 would happen sooner than Xenoblade anyways. I'll pick it up after I see it around $25 on Glyde.

Are there any plans to release Xenoblade on 360 or PS3? It seems like a waste of an apparently great game to only have it on the other system.

That's too bad. I just figured with the name Xeno that it was either a Namco or Squaresoft game. Oh well guess I'll never play it.

I would love to see a Wii U upgraded port/sequel though. The art style and scope of this game is absolutely fantastic, and is really marred by the Wii's weak graphics capabilities. I've seen screenshots/videos running at 1080p with AA etc through the Dolphin emulator and it looks much much better. Takes away the blurry, foggy look (same with Skyward Sword).

So, if I'm considering a PSP to pick up all the RPGs that came out, which I've missed out on. What's the cheapest way to go?

A PSP 3000 or whatever? Used games from gamestop? Sales from PSN?


Whatever you can get off ebay cheap, 3000 is the best but I got a 2000 cheap and it has worked quite well for me. So far I've chewed through a good chunk of the PSP RPGs and am currently going through the PSN classics, I've found Arc the Lad to be much more enjoyable as a portable. game.

Xenoblade is great, having a lot of fun with it. It's very addicting just doing all the side quests. The fast travel works like a charm.

About to go in the final dungeon for the Adult Arc in Tales of Graces F. Hopefully I can jump into Xenoblade soon

Anyone played Record of Agarest War?

I bought it for $15 a while back on an impulse buy. I didn't care for it, mediocre at best. It's not bad, but if you're willing to playthrough a SRPG that looks like a PS1 game then you can do better than Agarest War.

Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky or Tactics Ogre.

As for a reason? It's likely the general consensus around here that you'll hear. I'm too lazy to give any meaningful insight today.

Tactics Ogre, enjoyable story and the PSP version fixed the difficulty problems plus added a lot of post game play that wasn't available in the PS1 version. Although you can't really go wrong with any game on your current list.

Tactics Ogre!

One of my videogame selling regrets was that I got rid of a mint copy of Tactics Ogre on PSX years ago. I don't remember why but I certainly didn't sell it for anything close to what it goes for nowadays. Thankfully the PSP port more than corrected my error.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

Started Recettear recently. It's good so far, but I'm getting to the point where I'll have to start a second game cycle, since there's no way I can raise money fast enough. I had triggered one earlier, but reloaded from a save and pushed through. This time, though... I don't have nearly enough time or resources.

Hopefully there will be some small story changes the second time around, and not the same old cutscenes, similar to other JRPGs that do this sort of thing.

Oh, and I beat Soul Nomad last week. Very good battle system, but the story could've used work :-P

I don't think there's any real change in NG+. However if you play your cards right, you can have all of your payments ready by end of the second or third payment. I had an awesome playthrough that was around the third payment or so with all dungeons unlocked except for one. Lost it since I reformatted and forgot to backup the save.

That's what I'm planning on doing (also, it's the fourth payment that's going to force the NG+). I have the hang of how everything works now, so hopefully things will go much smoother the second time around.

Yeah, make sure you load up on items before the payment. All your cash goes away, but you keep your items which can be sold for big bucks.

I need to get back to my game to see if I can finish it off.

Anyone familiar with Breath of Fire IV? I can't seem to figure out how to use the skill I just learned. Doesn't show up on my Special menu...

It's a stupid enough question that it isn't answered on the internet. I've looked.

EDIT: lulz, found it.

I remember skills being a little wierd. You had to learn them from enemies (which seemed random) then equiped them somehow, maybe at camp? I forgot how the master system worked into this, if it did at all.

Asked in the GGT, but I figure I might get better responses from here.

Anyone have a good LP for The Witcher? Given all the good things I've heard about its sequel I tried it out, but it... I...

Fuck no.

So, uh, yeah. An LP would be great. Screenshot preferred; not big on video LPs for RPGs. There's nothing in the LP Archive, and a cursory look at SA yields only a couple unfinished video LPs.

I wasn't a fan of the forced isometric perspective. Just let me move the camera around freely. Also I wish the camera would've been pulled back a little.

That's why you always have Nina in your party!

Also, I guess this will have to do?



It's a pretty balls recap, but it beats the hell out of playing the game...

The game seems to know how bad its camera is, the hide-n-seek with the orphans segment even made a game out of it.

Well, Recettear Loop #2 is going well. I haven't hit the third payment yet and have four times the amount I need for that. Still gotta sell more, though :-P
