Put this on my radar for a price drop.

Along with Okami and Bully.

Picked it up at Best Buy today with the $10 off GamePro coupon. Can't wait to dive into this...

For those that have played it: Is it better than Dark Cloud 2? Does it have dungeons the way Dark Cloud 2 did? Because those were annoying.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

I'm a little further than 3 hours in myself, and I think the story itself thus far is a bit better than DC2. The gameplay/combat mechanics are great though, and are keeping me interested.

I'd recommend the guide too, at 384 pages of double-jump goodness, it covers basically everything that you can do with all the creation systems in the game. I'm about ready to dive back in.

Certainly worth my 40 dollar credit. The game is beautiful, although the lack of widescreen is rough --it still looks excellent, even though I'm loosing screen real estate.

Thanks for reminding me who made this guide - I might get the guide ASAP while I wait on a price drop on the game.

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

Dammit - I have this preordered at 2 places (EB and GR) and totally forgot it came out this week. Of course, neither place has bothered to call me about it :bomb:. Well, hopefully GR will get it and I can save my more valuable EB credit for something else. I might have to wait till Friday for GR. I think I'll move this to the top of my backlog though - I'm tired of getting games upon release and not playing them until they are on clearance for $10 :rofl:.

Anyone bump into a mimic yet? That thing killed me in like 3-5 hits! Be careful when you open chests...

Haha, Yeah quite a few on the jungle planet. I got wiped out in like 3 seconds from one, and then again figuring I didn't plan out how to attack. I actually did manage to kill it though after grabbing the fire gun for Jaster, just get my guys on "Go All Out", and had Jaster blast from range.

You get Hunter's Marks for each one you kill-- I don't know what they do as of yet, but they're probably worth it for sweet loots.

I love this game, every character plays differently. Thus far Zegram and Kisala are my two favorites.

Mimics get pretty easy once you get a

. You can just blast them once with that, attack like crazy for a while, then run away to charge up the shot, and repeat till they're dead.

Well, I haven't purchased a game since October, but it looks like that's gonna change tonight. Gameznflix has this game as "High Demand", meaning it could take a couple weeks for me to get a copy (how do they decide which customers get the first batch of copies?), so I'm just gonna go over to EB and trade in a couple low value games, and use my card in conjunction with that 10% coupon from the new GI. I figure I'll only have to pay $20 total.

Can anyone tell me how the fighting is? I am really hoping it's not like FFXII or Star Ocean.

I really don't want to buy another game to add to the backlog right now, but with comparisons to Secret of Mana, Kingdom Hearts, and Chrono Trigger being thrown around, and the $10 BB coupon, I might get this.

It's not like either of those. It's fast-paced, but does everything right not to make it too chaotic to follow: your companions "suggest" things they can do such as use healing items & special moves, which you can accept by tapping r1/l1. You can pause the action at any time by pressing triangle, and use special moves/items/etc from the menu. Healing items kick in immediately. If the character you're controlling happens to die, it automatically pauses to let you res him or switch to someone else.

I've heard some comparisons to KH2, but that does the game no justice at all imo. It's SOOO much better than that. There are random battles, but with no load times and no seperate battle screens, they are a joy and not a chore. I find myself wandering around trying to get into fights because they're so much fun.

The basic formula for RG is Dark Cloud 2 combined with a more traditional Japanese RPG - but like any Level-5 game, it's far more than the sum of its parts. Is it too early to call GOTY? ;)

I thought the $10 off BB coupon was dead?

Damn that sounds kick ass! Thanks much.

Looks like I will be picking this one up.

Well, GR finally came through for me (for once) and I now have this game from my preorder there (funny, EB never called me - oh well, I'll get that $5 back soon).

I'm pushing this to the top of the backlog and playing it as soon as I finish Magical Starsign on the DS. Though the fact that VanillaGorilla is making it his first game purchase since October is disturbing ;). That ol' DQ VIII hater!

same..i dont see this game dropping 10 bucks before the coupon expires...at most it will drop 5 bucks, making the game ineligible for the 10 off 39.99 coupon

I thought the $10 off BB coupon was dead?


it expires the 28 of Feb IIRC



also, let me state this...i dont really like RPG's but i loved Dark Cloud 2 i thought it was a fun game and the customization was a blast...this game is made by level 5, the same people, and it plays similarly from the Demo...probably gonna snag this today

Sitting at about 12 hours and change. I've got to say that I'm still really enjoying this game. The way that they present each new sidequest-able device is pretty cool (and sometimes quirky). Weapon Customization, Pokemon style competitions, and a whole damn factory at my disposal, its all very well put together.

I basically got to a point in the story where things become much more open ended, and I could easily see myself loosing quite a bit of time to the multitude of things in the game. However, much like the poster above me, I'd have to say that the combat is what really makes this game stand out in my opinion.

Its the perfect balance of hack and slash and traditional RPG elements. Once you unlock a good set of abilities, team suggestions are usually pretty good about healing and dishin' out the pain. I like that I can still be an asset even if my action meter runs out, and just keeping enemies locked in hitstun with my gun adds a lot to the combat dynamic than just running up and busting things.

I'm glad some more CAGs are going to pick this up, deal or no-deal, because I'm afraid it probably will not sell as well as it should. After trudging through Virtual Basic meets Final Fantasy, Rogue Galaxy is like a breath of fresh air.

The only reason I have yet to pick up Rogue Galaxy is because I still need to finish FFXII. Rest assured, once FFXII is done, I will check this out.
