What do you guys think of Project X Zone? I've been thinking about it for a while and it's twenty bucks which is the new retail price I guess...
Looking for a new RPG at the moment.
We live in a generation now where RPGs no longer try to push gameplay but rather just try to be fun. That's okay, I guess, but can't we have both? Project X Zone is a good example of an RPG that doesn't push any boundaries, but it is a lot of fun, unless you're not familiar with any of the characters (which might actually be impossible--I blame the baby boomers)
Many of the skills in each class are unused (by me). Though it adds variety, their usage is fairly limited. This happened with Fire Emblem too where I just stuck with some basic stuff and it turned out to work the best. I do like the ability to mix and match skills though, which has been a great part of the Final Fantasy series.
Once I got the Spiritmaster job class, the fights are pretty much over. Fairy ward and Stillness are way OP. Oh and having to run through the game 5X is more than just a chore, so I know what you mean about boring... maybe not so much boring, but more tedious.
Yeah, I guess the game isn't really even hard anyway. It's just all these options thrown in for you to fiddle with if you want, but then you end up thinking you have to when... you don't. I just get sick of all the fiddling. Final Fantasy Tactics, for instance, is such a cool game, but my god I get sick of feverishly planning which classes for which characters, constantly swapping their equipment, etc etc etc. I am tired of job systems. No one's lives have any meaning because they are all everything. In Final Fantasy IV, Tellah was A SAGE. Each person's class had deep meaning. Cecil was a Dark Knight (whoa) and became a Paladin (WHOA WHOA). That was a major theme in the game. Even Final Fantasy X's sphere grid (which I actually really liked) had everyone as a certain class, and you had to master that before branching off into other people's territory. Too much freedom without reason just becomes meaningless and freeform, at best, and a burden on the player at worst.
Dang. Up to Denpa Men 3? I still haven't touched 1 or 2.
Really wish the 3DS had more traditional JRPGs. While I loved most of Bravely Default, the real lack of alternatives probably forced me to slog through the final third of the game rather than pick something else up. In hindsight, maybe it wasn't so bad. But at the time... yeesh.
Me too. I think I spent a lot of Bravely Default trying to convince myself "this is like the games I always loved, only better!" I actually never made it past chapter 4, to where it supposedly gets cruddy. I kept telling myself I'd go back and finish it, but it seems like a chore now. Maybe I'm just obsessive, but I don't like the job system and get sick of that in games.
Grinsia anyone get it. tempted but already got it on my kindle for 99 cents
It would be great if it was quality, but I'm not holding my breath. And yes, the $10 vs. $0.99 thing is a little tough to swallow.
There are still probably more traditional RPGs on 3DS than on any other console, though. But yes, I agree--more would be really nice.
Oh. Wasn't there a portable remake of the first few X games?
Well, the Xtremes are, kind of, or rather they're a weird sort of remix homage thing (again, as Dr. Wiley's Revenge was to the NES games--however, unlike Dr. Wiley's Revenge, the Xtreme games are actually good).
There's a PSP remake of the first X. I can't think of anything else tho!
Honestly, would you actually play Dr. Mario? I thought about getting the combo but realistically I would probably play the NES game once or twice and then never touch it again (aka balooon fight and Yoshi).
Yeah, I'm not into this deal. If I could have Dr. Mario on 3DS, I might play it there, but I doubt I'll play it on Wii U, especially if I had Dr. Luigi. I wish I could just have Dr. Luigi on 3DS instead.
Wonderful 101 us an essential Wii U game. Well worth $30 for those of you who stocked up on eshop money. Might be able to be had for cheaper physically, I just recommend everyone give it a shot.
There's a demo for it as well. Personally, I tried the demo and didn't "get" the game and didn't feel like making an effort to get it. I'm not much of an action gamer these days anyway tho, so that could be why.
