Haven't played that one, but the graphics look pretty nice (except for the inventory screen :-?).

However, if you're looking for a great sci-fi roguelike, FTL is fantastic. It lacks certain traditional roguelike trappings, but it's super addictive.

Oh, yeah. Forgot about that one. It's been on my to-get list for a while. Just waiting for the appropriate sale. :) I love space combat. Not the fast paced small fighter ship kind like Wing Commander, but the large ship, possibly turn-based kind. Fun.

If anyone has suggestions for that type of game, please let me know.

Does that have any connection to Sword of the Stars, or is it like a complete trademark infringement?

Edit: Yes, apparently, it's the same people. There's a demo on Steam as well...

Playing the demo of The Pit. I'm liking it. It's more traditional. You decipher parts of messages, and they carry over to your next games. It's much less like FTL, but much more rogue-like.

Not sure what game you're actually referring to, but of the ones I've played I'd recommend Tales of the Abyss (basically a good port of the PS2 game), Fire Emblem Awakening, and Etrian Odyssey IV.

I mean there aren't that many options for it to be on the 3DS so I had a hunch that was what we were talking about (Waifu Wars still doesn't make a lot of sense as a code name though). Also the game isn't all about getting everyone hitched it's also about popping out and training kids you've selectively bred, my son is a frickin' monster.

Almost done with Tales of Graces f. Gonna grind a few more titles in the last dungeon for a bit first. I haven't touched any of the sidequests, and probably won't. Never have much cared for Tales sidequests.

Almost done with P2: IS. Should be at B5F of the final dungeon tomorrow. Then off to the abandoned factory for a little bit of grinding. There's a couple level 60 personas I think I want.
(Still haven't decided on whether I should go for the ultimate weapons)

Then set aside one night or a couple hours for the boss fights and ending.

Slowly working on Dark Souls, now. Geez, there is a lot of backtracking and running around, especially to get back to the one blacksmith I've located. Demon's Souls was much neater in that regard. I loved Demon's Souls — I'm not liking this game as much.

Being on the PC probably doesn't help. Smaller userbase means less interaction online. :( Not as fun. Does look a lot nicer, though, so at least there's that.

Also,
Spoiler


Edit: On the bright side, I did see in the DS2 interview that they're working to improve the traveling and tedium factors that were found in Dark Souls.

Got up to Lord Dredmor again and died, again, but not before whittling his HP down to half. I now have a good idea of what to do when facing him for the third time.

The next character I rolled died on the third floor, but that wasn't a big deal since I realized shortly before his death that I'd neglected to give him the Master of Arms skill tree. Now I'm on the second floor with yet another new character :razz:

I just wanted to mention that I really like NISA's placeholder covers on Amazion (All black with a stylized game logo) better than the actual covers they put on their games. They should make all of their covers two-sided with that placeholder cover on the back.

Edit:

Oh yeah, I also wanted to ask people about RPG Maker 3 on PSN. I saw it was added recently, and in reading a few things I found out that you can't share created games through the PSN (which I always thought seemed perfect, but will sadly be be something we'll probably never see). My question is, how is this handled? Would you basically have to back up you entire game save data and send it to someone else? That seems a bit unweildy, and would be a big disappointment.

Done with Tales of Graces f. The ending was kinda blah, but I really wasn't expecting anything exceptional. I will try out the post-game stuff someday, but I'm ready to move on now.

One of my RPG pet peeves is the lack of a strong villian. So few modern RPGs have great villians nowadays. Graces's villian was weak since they spent too much time wanting you to sympathize with it. I love to hate the villian, not feel sorry for him. Great rpgs are great partly because the villian is such a strong figure. Kefka and Sephiroth work so well because they are asshat douchebags that you actually WANT to kick their ass, giving you strong motivation to keep playing. Graces lacked that motivation.

Can anyone name some recent RPGs that have strong, well developed, hate-inducing villians?

I don't know about well developed, but right now, Lord Dredmor is definitely strong and hate-inducing for me (yes, he beat me, yet again).

Seriously though, nothing springs to mind, but that's might be because I haven't played many recent RPGs that are particularly plot heavy.

Wow, I honestly can't. I want to say The Witcher 2, but I don't remember whether hate was a factor. Hmm.

I actually never hated Sephiroth, though. Kefka, on the other hand... what a delightfully evil villain. I wish there were more like him.

Edit: Yakuza 3 or 4, also. I can't recall which — possibly both. But there were definitely some hate-worthy antagonists in that entire series. I also can't think of any other series that lets you get retribution in a more satisfying way.

kefka was a protagonist's villain.
the game was focused more on solving your guys's problems instead of kefka, at least in the latter half.

kinda like lavos.

Come to think of it, the last Bioware villain I thought was done well was Loghain, and even then, a lot of his motivation was lost to cut content. I know some people really liked Saren, but I couldn't handle the dude's goofy hoverboard thing.

I thoroughly enjoyed both Saren and the Illusive Man (more so in 2 than 3, though). Saren/Sovereign is probably my favorite villain outside Seymour in FFX. Loghain was alright, but once he joins your group, I tend not to think of him as a villain and more of an anti-hero.

The baddies all over Jade Empire were awesome because the game was fucking awesome.
