If you value GFX, might I suggest switching to MMO's and PC's :3 as our genre... has the best graphics every time ^^

I can't argue with that since PC can be upgraded anytime. But I'd prefer using my ps3 since I don't have a brand new desktop to play with wink_face.gif

Exactly xD my gaming rig is gonna cost me $900, but a Ps3 is pretty dang cheap and has great performance to price [obviously]

 

but I'm a PC gamer anyways! And Still enjolying Xeno Blade, I was happy to walk into a new Dugeon and find... A FIELD BOSS! YAY, it doesn't aggro either unless you attack it, so that's great that they have End game bosses in intro maps ^^, that means I'll have nice full end game to play with [I saved then attacked it for kicks... lol 1 hit kills and all misses xD 70 level margin lol]

Well, ps3 WAS the chepest media when it was released. WiFi, HDMI, bluray player(trayless mind you), play game, play music(i read that the first edition can read SACD, but not sure), 3d capablility and so much more. It was a revolution during its time and a $600 was a steal.

Too bad your new desktop doesn't include bluray writer. Its the only thing that the ps3 has an edge..

Is Xeno Blade for pc? I thought it was for the wii?

Xenoblade is a Wii exclusive, yes.

 

There are many of us to find a PC + Wii (and other Nintendo consoles) to be the best combo, even if the former can easily emulate the latter nowadays. Plenty of exclusives, not too much overlap like the other two consoles.

 

Though if I had to pick one of the HD consoles, I'd go with the PS3. Still plenty of exclusives, especially if it's one that bears PS2 backwards compatibility.

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.

What, so that people can pirate everything, and companies stop supporting the systems? Look what happened to the PSP. Like it or not, it was all the pirating that made companies stop bringing games to English speaking countries. The system sold well to a point, yet no games were selling. The Wii, as easily hackable as it is, didn't suffer much because it's a Nintendo system, so many people buy them for their kids, etc. The PSP was a teenagers/young adults portable console, and the exploit destroyed it's success very early.

I'm glad the Vita isn't hackable, and I hope it never is. If it is, you can kiss english games goodbye, as no company is gonna bring games out, since they know the game won't sell, and everyone is gonna pirate.

My PSP may be hacked, but I play nothing but old games, or games from dead systems. New PSP games, I buy and play on my Vita.

Actually, if it weren't because my PSP has a text viewer, I would've unhacked it ages ago. I need that text viewer more than anything else on my PSP.

I had no idea there is jrpg thread on these forums.

 

Im so much into jrpg's that i started collecting them,very expensive hobby but when i look at my collection im happy that i can play whatever i want and whenever i want (some games get very rare with time and i dont want to download illegal copies).

I used to collect them (PS1/PS2) days. Money is hard to come by nowadays, and JRPGs even more so. I don't buy games that much anymore, except a precious few, and mostly portables, since I have/had lots of downtime at work. Just recently bought Gravity Rush (though not a JRPG)

I still do own a pretty awesome collection of rares, like Suikoden II. wink.gif
post #191 of 751

Oh Gravity Rush,how is it? I heard its pretty interesting.

 

WTTFFF Suikoden 2 :( Im trying to hunt this one down for a good price but no luck. When i was a kid i traded Suikoden 2 for some crappy game :/

post #192 of 751

Well, not JRPG related, but still awesome!

 

post #193 of 751

Final Fantasy VII's getting ported to the PC AGAIN?

 

The old Eidos (ironically now Square Enix Europe) PC port was pretty crappy. Text input where YOU HAVE TO USE A VIRTUAL KEYBOARD IN SPITE OF A REAL KEYBOARD SITTING IN FRONT OF YOU, MIDI music with a low-quality soundfont, and other numerous issues. FFVIII PC didn't fare much better.

 

I just hope they don't pull a Baldur's Gate Enhanced Edition and add paid DLC to a game that didn't originally have any.

Gravity Rush... hmm, I'd give it a 7.5 overall. The game is pretty, and the world is charming, but the game has a pretty simple formula and gets tedious.

I have to say, I'm not a fan of sandbox/open world type games (GTA, Saints Row, Just Cause, Infamous, Assassin's Creed), because once you have played the first 15 minutes, you're free to do whatever, with side quests, main missions being available whenever. All these games get tedious/repetitive, and don't really surprise you gameplay wise after the first few minutes. You're basically free to just mess around. I prefer some real direction.

I prefer more linear games with set pieces, where the game is focused, and has more attention to detail. Gravity Rush is more of a sandbox/open world game, so it kind of turns me off. I am enjoying it, but I expected more.

Hah. Didn't know about this forum until recently.

Looking in this thread... am I the only fan of Atelier and Ar Tonelico? redface.gif

 

Some of my favorite jRPGs are (in the order listed on my bookshelf):

-Ar Tonelico (not sure which of the three is my fav)

-Atelier Iris 2 (I have MK1 but never played it yet)

-Disgaea 1

-GrimGrimoire (not rly RPG)

-OdinSphere

-Muramasa

-Valkyria Chronicles

-Persona 3 (didn't start 4 yet)

-Tales of Destiny (cause it was the first RPG I played! I have the PS2 remake version only)

-Demon Souls & Dark Souls (not really RPG)

 

Naturally I have more games than this but lately nothing seems to strike my interest. Going to pick up Vesperia and maybe Xillia, but the amazon.jp reviews (so in depth) call Xillia one of the absolute worst Tales game. Oh well get it anyway.
