Valkyrie profile? Resonance of Fate?

Vesperia also happens to be the best Tales game, and Bandai Namco has gone downhill since then and probably won't ever be that great again at this rate.

Still debating about Resonance of Fate for which console. Wish they release on pc

I guess I am strange because I thought Star Ocean 4 was great and that it and Resonance of Fate were two of the best RPGs on the PS3.

I may get flak for this but I also thought the PS3 was lacking somewhat in really good RPGs....I still need to play some but what I played was mainly average.

I actually agree with you when it comes to JRPGs, though I will say that Trails of Cold Steel is the best one of those I've played in years.

I also really liked some of the Western RPGs that were on PS3.

You're definitely not wrong. The best PS3 RPGs were PS2 ports from Atlus. 

 

Not a fan of the Tales series, and Resonance of Fate was okay until I just stopped understanding half the shit I was doing in battles.

Can't wait. I wonder if they ditched all the touch stuff so it can finally be PSTV compatible.

Nah I think most people think that.  It doesn't help things that the ps3 lacks exclusives.  Its the reason why so many people waited on getting one even rpg wise.  I've liked what I played on it but nothing stands out to much besides maybe lost dimension and cold steel 1 and even those have their fair share or problems and aren't exclusives (though I've heard the vita versions aren't very good due to text side and frame rate issues).  The one thing I will say is the ps3 has some nice digital old titles an sales for them.

 

 

so4 wise I liked some things about it but between nerfing alot of the good systems from so3 and making the majority of side content farming drops, making the space ship a fricken fixed spot you had to waste time traveling to constantly, item creation being locked to said space ship, arena requires hours of tedious grinding to unlock the rank 1 matches for no reason, faize and the other mages have no real melee options but him specifically uses a sword and sarah uses a lance.  The secret dungeon being unplayable and ai derping out at the end of the game were the final straws for me.

Dangit all, I missed all three ways to pre-order the Bravely Second CE? What are they doing, ordering ten of them each? I have the Bravely Default CE, and I'm going to be annoyed if I can't get the Bravely Second one to put next to it...

The battle system in RoF was interesting for sure, but I wasn't a huge fan either. It took far too long to complete even very simple battles, and there was a more RNG involved than there should have been. The amount of bezels you have in the beginning of the game also creates a monstrous learning curve. The story was also very poorly presented and incomprehensible for most of the game.

 

I think my favorite thing about the PS3 was all of the collections. I didn't have a Playstation system until the PS3, but I was able to get FFX/X-2, Kingdom Hearts 1.5/2.5, and a ton of other games that I missed out on over the years for a relatively cheap price. It kinda made me wish I grew up with PS consoles instead of Nintendo ones.

I do agree those collections were awesome. KH1.5 and 2.5, FFX HD collection, Shadows/Ico collection, MGS Legacy (though I did get the previous one with 3 HD games), Zone of the Enders HD, Ratchet and Clank...etc. Good upgrades for the most part and usually the most complete versions of games. Just awesome.

18 copies of Tales of Zestiria CE for $100 left on Amazon, so if you were planning to wait it out, you may want to pull the trigger sooner rather than later.

Nice! Glad they're adding Quiet. I'm hoping, at some point, we get some "classic" maps from previous MGO games, like Groznyj Grad from MGO2.

There was a Pokemon mod (Leaf Green/Fire Red maybe?) that I once played which changed all the Pokemon to girl characters. I think it was called Moemon.

the ico collection has imput lag from what I heard thus why I passed on it. But yeah I like all the collections.  Though I already have the majority of them on ps2.  kh collection only reason I even got it was for bbs on console.  sure would be nice if they did a suikoden collection, .hack collections and wild arms among other things so people who don't have those can get them.
