It's pretty bad that the RPG I am looking forward to the most this year is Barkley 2. Or awesome. Let's go with awesome.

Be excited for Xillia so that they'll bring the sequel over.

I play bad games

If anyone isn't going to use their code I'd love them forever.

I don't like Godzilla.

There are just so many un-Godzilla like things it should be easy to see why people didn't like it (also the annoying cast). Zilla being killed by missiles was the biggest thing that bothered me Godzilla is supposed to be far stronger than that. The army shouldn't be able to hurt Godzilla unless they are using something like MechaGodzilla or Moguera.

I don't even know what that is. It sounds like a Pokemon. Or a STD.

My anticipation for Barkley 2 is somewhere below Etrian Odyssey IV and Rune Factory 4, and somewhere above Pandora's Tower and Pokemon X/Y. Can't wait!

I wish it was an STD. It would be way easier to contract and bring over the sequel.

Also, it's a Tales game.

Vesperia is really good. I haven't been overly impressed by the others.

I need to give Vesperia a shot. I always end up turned off by combat in the Tales games for whatever reason. I feel like I've never really given em a fair shot though.

You guys hear about Crimson Shroud on 3DS? Vagrant Story's one of my favorite games ever, and there's a lot of Ivalice/Lea Monde flare in there.

symphonia and vesperia are my tales picks, haven't played abyss though and graces F is sitting on my shelf as i work on ff dimensions and xenoblade. only other tales i've played was phantasia which i'm not too thrilled about.

ff dimensions is really quite entertaining. although it's $20 i have about 40 hours on it. seems like a very clever crossing of ff4/ff5 with after years-type linearity.

Vesperia and Abyss are my favorites in the series. For JRPGs the stories are good, and some likable characters too.

I always wanted a localization of the Destiny remake.

I'm SUPER excited for that game, basically skipping out on starting Graces, which I own, since I played through and finished Abyss last year and didn't want to start another Tales game and get burned out on them before Xillia came out.

My anticipation for Barkley 2 is somewhere below Etrian Odyssey IV and Rune Factory 4, and somewhere above Pandora's Tower and Pokemon X/Y. Can't wait!


I still haven't played the original Barkley, but I probably should since I know a lot of people who talk about and love it.

I'm also super hyped about Etrian Odyssey IV, next week can't come quick enough (it will make my two hours of public transit commuting a day during the week a lot more bearable).

Pokemon X/Y are fairly exciting too, but I need to work on finishing up Black before those come out (since I still haven't finished it). The frog starter in X/Y is adorable, although I like the female trainer in Black/White more than the one for X/Y.

I haven't even started Black 2 yet and want to start doing some postgame stuff for White before that. X or Y is definitely one of those "won't preorder, but will likely get shortly after launch" games.

Prolly gonna get flamed, but I really don't see the love for Vesperia. Played it ~ 2 years ago, and maybe it was how hyped it was, but I thought it very meh. Actually preferred Legendia (pre-personal stories) to Vesperia... :-#

But yeah it's clear Crimson Shroud was made by the guy in charge of creating Ivalice. Definitely something I'll pick up eventually.

I always wanted a localization of the Destiny remake.


I'm still hoping for a good fan translation. looks. so. good.

Yeah I'm probably just going to end up skipping over the Black/White 2 games, finishing Black before X/Y comes out is enough of a goal, although I might start playing Black on my lengthy commute along with Etrian Odyssey IV so I could end up getting through it in a decent amount of time. I need to get back to Radiant Historia too since I was really enjoying that game but took a bit of a break from it and haven't managed to get back to it yet.

when i think about vesperia, i think that it was just a very solid game with likeable characters. it's nothing special or innovative, so if you're looking for those you won't find it in vesperia.

I'm 12 hours into ME2. Doing a lot of side quests, just getting a feel for things. This game is making me feel old, because I hate the cinematic dialog -- it should be paced by how fast I can read, not how fast some voice actor can spit out a line.

Also, why do they insist on bullshitting me with the "coolant clips" instead of just calling it "ammo"? They remarked in the codex or somewhere that the clips are universal -- if that's the case, why can't I share them between weapons? It's because they're bullshitting me. Just call it ammo because it *is* ammo.

I'm doing a lot of guessing on upgrades. Considering googling them against my better judgement. I'm having a tough time figuring out in-game what weapons do what. Not a lot of numbers provided, unless I'm missing something.

ME2 doesn't have any mutually exclusive upgrades, does it? The only real sticking point in that game was money, as I recall, and even that was largely alleviated with DLC.

I'm running out of DS RPGs to play. I've very nearly played them all. Should be able to knock them out by the end of the year. What a run. Almost 10 years.

Ones left:
Devil Survivor 2 (which I just started. man, they really phoned in this one)
Dragon Quest 4 through 6
DQM Joker 2

I've even played My World My Way, from beginning to end. WHY DID I DO THAT.

Beat Ys II today. It's still the better of the first two Ys games. The Chronicles+ versions of both were great overall; in particular, I loved the new musical arrangements, and think they outdo the Turbo CD versions that I'd been used to. Might be the best version of the Ys I & II OST yet.

Comparison: Turbo CD...

...vs. Chronicles.

I'm running out of DS RPGs to play. I've very nearly played them all. Should be able to knock them out by the end of the year. What a run. Almost 10 years.

I still have a ton in my backlog. Should be finally done with the PS2 ones by the end of the year, though.

Anyway, the DS is definitely (has definitely been?) an amazing system, especially for RPGs. The 3DS looks like it'll be just as good, too.

Huh, nice. Kind of has a classic Final Fantasy feel.

Meanwhile, looks like I'm getting release day delivery for Etrian Odyssey IV :hot: I really need to get that 3DS soon!

It is so much better than the original. Played through it and it would be great if they somehow released it here. Fat chance of that happening, but eating ones words is always nice in this occasion.

I was going to buy a PS3, but I have to get work done on my car, so I am probably going to opt to get a 3DS instead. What are the must-have JRPGs for the 3DS?

Mine isn't estimated to arrive until Wednesday :cry:. I was hoping to get a good start on it this week. I think mine isn't coming as fast (since originally they were saying I should get it on the release day) because I ordered Fire Emblem with it and Amazon is finally going to ship it to me along with EOIV, so I'm guessing they didn't have a copy of that locally which is why they are shipping it from Tennessee. I guess if I have to tide myself over I can just screw around in the demo some more since I'll be able to transfer the save (although I already got to where the demo ends, but I haven't hit the level cap yet).
