The game IS pretty, and I like the create a character being simple, and making very pretty looking characters. Create a characters tend to look HORRIBLE in games. Not so here.

Huh, that sounds pretty nice. I don't mind mmo-ish jRpg, in fact I'd like to play a decent one.

 

Not sure if Monster Hunter is much of an Rpg, but it was pretty darned fun online! In addition has any one played the Newest Dragon Quest? The MAJORLY mmo-ish one they put out for the wii...

Is it fully MMO or needs to be online to semi-MMO like to just to play the game and have interactions, like FB games?

 

YOU ACTUALLY PLAYED MH FRONTIER?!?! DAAAAAYUUUUM!!!!

...  ME FREAKING GUSTA

 

ALSO, Radierz is online... it's like MH but it lacks the awesome armor and wepon system. Despite the well shortness of the game MH is still awesome... I LOVE the way they do armor combos! And the Battle is SO fluid and really wonderful!

 

I'd love for radierz which is a hack n slash to encouperate a MH like armor system... mh armor had stats that made skillz if you got enough! While Raiderz you get skillz from lvling up and well using SP to get skillz, Raiderz let's you hybrid two classes so that's nice but man MH battle an armor was magic! Add that shizx into an mmo with ACTUAL skillz and DAYUM what a combo!

 

That and I miss using a Lance in Hack n Slash, MH had a wonderful lance system with great dodge an counter abilities! The counter in Raiderz is not as satisfying... MONSTER HUNTER WHY YOU NO MAKE AN OPEN WORLD MMO YET YOU NEWBS! Lol

Are there any 2 player JRPG's? 

 

Preferably for PC or Playstation 2 / 3.

Traditional JRPGs aren't likely to have meaningful multiplayer due to the format. Final Fantasy VI allowed a second controller to issue commands in battle. Xenogears was a single-player game that had a 2-player minigame. Most that do have a more active 2-player feature are action RPGs, again, due to the format. Seiken Densetsu 2 (Secret of Mana) & 3 are probably the most best classical examples of such, featuring up to 3 players.

For something more modern, there's Tales of Symphonia which is available for both the GameCube and the PS2.

SD2 and 3 are REALLY fun with multiplayer, the same can be said for ToS as well. Both very fun, and the best part is you can Emulate all three on a PC, but again you can buy ToS for Play Station and there should be Play Station 2/3 Super Nintendo Emulators out there as well for you!

SD2&3 are FUN. Without or without multiplayer lol.

Isn't the playstation ToS not available in English? But either way as Halide said, multiplayer RPGs will be those whose fighting system are more action than selection based, so you get the bulk of the Tales series and Star Ocean 3 on ps2 afaik. May or may not require unlocking items to get the 2nd player control going.

Probably. I played the GameCube version at a friend's house. I didn't have a GameCube so I was pretty happy it got a PlayStation 2 release. And yes, it was in Japanese. It wasn't too bad; I can read Japanese better than I can listen to it and the un-subtitled/un-texted portions of the game dialogue were rather simple. My biggest gripe with the game was that my first time playing it was when my friend was at the game's big reveal, so the plot was kinda spoiled for me. The PS2 version has a bunch of new stuff added to it: titles, skills, events, and all that jazz... oh, and obviously the save points got changed. wink.gif

Haha, thanks for the follow-up Halide :P
I have the game too though never got further than first occasion to save since it felt so old school layout after playing ToA. Should I still put it in queue? :P
Meanwhile I kinda want to pick up ToP. Does anyone know if jp-PSN has it?
post #385 of 704
Yeeeah... about that. I also didn't finished it. I've been trying to get around to it. For me, it was the plot thing I mentioned earlier. I haven't played Tales of Abyss so I can't compare. But I guess it's just how much of the plot and battle system of a game you can handle.

Thanks for the info, 

 

hopefully in the future, there will be more 2 player + titles available.

Yar, Sd3 is still one of my favorites! The class system there is well perfect imo! I love how well you can balance out 2 of 3 different teams... maybe these hip new mmos will get it right... but proably not :[

 

Still speaking of mmos [sry you guys but j-rpg and K-mmo seem to go together]

 

Radierz 

Vindictus and Dragons Nest still fun to me...
