The Official JRPG Thread (aka Japanese Role Playing Games) - Page 12

post #166 of 704

Most of the negative reviews about the PSP are from non-Japanese owners, mainly being that there are no games. Japan keeps all the good stuff.

I love my PSP, and I love my Vita. However, they seriously need games.
post #167 of 704

Idk about that, at first I thought the PSP was lacking on games a bit, but if you really look there's a pretty ridiculous amount of good titles, especially now.

Just a few of the games I really enjoyed, meaning I actually beat the whole game (or at least played through a good part of it)

 

Quote:

- Disgaea 1 and 2 (all time favorite)

- Breath of Fire III

- God of War and also Dante's Inferno

- HexyZ Force

- Metal Gear Solid

- Monster Hunter (ended up being a tad bit too hardcore for me)

- Phantasy Star Portable 1 and 2

- Tales of the World Radiant Mythology (breaks my heart that they didn't officially translate 2)

- Valkyria Chronicles

- Legend of Heroes (Ridiculously long stereotype JRPG, I enjoyed it though)

- YS Seven, great with new graphics.  There are also some older YS games that I really liked

- Persona 3, there's also a Fate/Stay Night game that's really similar

- Jean D Arc (sort of like fire emblem but much better graphics and depth)

- Kingdom of Paradise

- Riviera (really strange game, but I actually enjoyed it a lot)

- Dungeon Siege, Throne of Agony

- Assassin's Creed

- Kingdom Hearts

lol that was sort of nostalgic going through my save game folder... there are probably a bunch more not on there though.

Considering the level of JRPGs on the DS, the PSP is sorely lacking, at least in terms of domestic releases.

You missed the ps3 too. It's just sad that most great games aren't being released in english. I don't mind the voice-overs are in Japanese, Instead I'd prefer them to be so like the FF13 and FF13-2 as it maintains the original feel of the game (plus, I just love Kotobuki Minako as the voice actor of Serah Farron)

 

If they just focused on translating the subs and menus, I'm sure that the game will be released outside Japan in just a few weeks or a month or two

I don't mind dubs for the most part, but if it saves a considerable amount of money, they shouldn't hire voice actors, and focus on text and menus, as you stated. Freaking Bandai Namco and not releasing all their good games... even when companies like Xseed said they'd do all the localization for them. Bunch of bastards.

Well, that being said there are more JRpgs on the Sony Consoule than the Wii, kinda funny how that worked xD Nintendo Portable FULL OF JRPG, Nintendo Consoule ... maybe 3 xD

Agree'd I'm playing XenoBlade with Sub's first. I'll go through with Dubs after if I can bare it, but why pay for actors when subtitles are cheaper.

 

Also Arc Rise Fantasia, was a good Jrpg for the wii but the Dubs where so terriable I had to sell it <.< it drove me nuts.

Yeah, during the time I owned a Wii, I bought Arc Rise Fantasia... and promptly sold it at a loss. The voice acting was literally one of the worst things I have ever heard in my life. I'm usually juuuuust fine with dubs. ARF was just so painful to hear.

I know and the battle system and customization on the weps was really cool, I got pretty close to the end but GAWD it sucked so MUCH >.>

I'm trying to pretend that game doesn't exist...
post #175 of 704

Now if only ps3 and Vita is fuly hackable....NO I DON'T WANNA THINK ABOUT IT!

 

And that is why psp is still selling(sort of) cause there are people patching the games, like Persoa 3 Portable (jap dub,eng sub) , mhp3rd, ff type 0 (eng patch) etc.

It's been that way since the PS1 days. Practically all the JRPGs ended up on Sony consoles, though Microsoft's been getting more love than usual from Japan lately.

 

That said, the Wii still has a few more, aside from the Operation Rainfall trio (Xenoblade, The Last Story, Pandora's Tower). People forget that Tales of Graces debuted on the Wii before being remade for PS3, and along with that, there's Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World. Other than those and Final Fantasy IV: The After Years, though...okay, now I'm honestly stumped. I'm pretty sure even the GCN had more JRPGs on it, from the original Tales of Symphonia to Skies of Arcadia: Legends (okay, that one's a Dreamcast port) to the two Baten Kaitos titles. Good thing the Wii's backwards-compatible (or used to be, anyway)...

How painful are we talking, on a scale from Last Alert to Chaos Wars?

"Tales of Graces" oh nice suggestion!

Arc Rise Fantasia is competing pretty heavily with Chaos Wars. Yes... that bad.

Tales of Graces on the Wii is like 50% of Tales of Graces F. There's a lot of content missing. The Future arc alone is when the game REALLY shines, as that's when you get Accel mode, and dolls to start doing some ridiculous combos.

Well I don't have a PS3... *sigh* which means I better start getting HEAVY into mmo's as there are alot of Tradtion RPGS I'm missing out on, by not having a PS

 

Btw why isn't there an MMORPG thread here yet :O

 

Still XenoBlade keeps getting better and better, should have stuck with it Mad, what makes it nice is the Tech's change effect based on where you are, like back front and side effects! So even though it's auto acctack, your constantly adjusting aggro and your own position so you can fight better! The first 30mins suck pretty bad like (5/10) bad but after that it's really a 10/10!

 

I'm debating if I want to get MH Tri again... I got to end game then sold... any one still playing Online?
