Even at that price I wouldn't rec stella glow.  Terrible srpg.  And needing ng+ and a guide just to get the normal ending is stupid as hell.

Man, tough crowd. At $15, I'd definitely recommend Stella Glow, as it's a pretty decent game. Nothing ground-breaking, but I would say it does all of the things pretty well that a decent SRPG should do.

They are a Chinese company and I haven't seen them release in English before to my knowledge, so I would be wary of the translation until proven. My experience with Chinese companies translating to English is... less than satisfactory. I'm on the fence with the title translation. It's very 'direct' and probably should have been 'Maiden' instead gong by the french title in the logo. Though someone actually versed in French would know better than I would.

Didn't realize you still needed to root it to get remote play to work on all androids, lame.  I buy Sony phones.  The big reason I started to was roughly around the time the ps4 came out for the remote play feature.  I even got the phone clip thing.  I was so excited to do something like play my ps4 on a roof like in a commercial I saw. I never use remote play on my phone.  I think I did once, and it wasn't on a roof.  It was 3 feet away from my ps4.

Golden Week Sale

 

 

Not seeing anything else and since I will be busy until this evening, I opted to post this now rather than an hour or two later. The Golden Week Sale should have plenty of thread related stuff once it populates. Probably shows up on console just fine, but like usual the web is slow to update.

Urgh, I wasted my 20% off PSN coupon last week and now they have the golden week sale. I didn't think it would start before 4/30 in time for the coupon.

From what I've heard, it's actually good good. People I know have told me it's arguably the best DRPG outside of the Etrian Odyssey games.

Blue Reflection is still $20 at Gamestop and has an $80 DLC pass. The price on Atelier Sophie is okay. It's $29.99 used at Gamestop but $35 new at Amazon

I felt like 7th Dragon was better than Etrian Odyssey. I couldn’t put the game down and ended up putting like 60 hours in it to do everything. The combat was fun, story was good, music was fantastic, and the classes were really cool. It had some really tough bosses in the game too.

That's good to hear. I bought the game on a Black Friday sale from BB a couple years ago but haven't gotten to it yet. I've had a hard time getting into the EO games but I've really enjoyed Demon Gaze so far as far as DRPGs go.

#23484 elessar123

Demon Gaze is a bit more faster paced. EO is definitely more of a "you'll die and waste 30 minutes if you try to save 5 minutes"

I’ve never played Demon Gaze, but I do feel the same way about EO. In my opinion, it’s a hard series to get into and it’s never really grabbed my full attention. I still have never finished an EO game, because I always lost interest.
Anyway, I feel like you’ll really enjoy 7th Dragon when you get around to playing it. 😁

Loved demon gaze 1 and 2, so much easier to pick up and complete than EO, nice music too.

Man, tough crowd. At $15, I'd definitely recommend Stella Glow, as it's a pretty decent game. Nothing ground-breaking, but I would say it does all of the things pretty well that a decent SRPG should do.

Large maps and 4 space movement for almost all characters (box ninja and popo are prettymuch the only ones with decent movement range)  and huge amounts of enemies with more turns than you make me disagree that it's even decent.  Also not a fan of the battle map units limitation.  I haven't played an srpg that only allows so few units on a map besides front mission 3 and arc the lad (though front mission also has fewer enemy units and arc the lad units are typically broken besides 2) and they don't use the turn order system like ateliers and such do.

 

 

There is also a free demo for Stella Glow in the eshop if you wanted to try it out before buying.

The demo is of the first couple battles in the game though which are on smaller maps and fewer enemies on top of them not having as frequent turns and isn't an adequate representation what the rest of the game is like besides maybe the last battle.  I was fooled by the demo as well and bought the game on sale.  


Currently on the look out for a decent price on Pokemon XD Gale of Darkness.
