Pewdiepie plays some games made from RPGMaker (I think, loks like it). Though most of the game he played are horror. Pretty good storyline though.

 

Now, I wonder when will the next FF-like (and I mean like the original when they almost went bankrupt) jrpg would surface.

I've been playing Fire Emblem: Awakening nonstop since I found a copy at my local Best Buy back in April. The tactical gameplay and the RPG elements blend so well with each other, and the soundtrack is amazing! It's a shame that the 3DS isn't a high-fidelity device.

 

The plot is rather unoriginal, but the characters make the whole story worthwhile. Fleshing out every single one of the 40+ playable characters is an impressive feat. Some are more charming than others, but I never want to lose any of them to the perma-death feature. And the support (+marriage!) system is a shipper's dream come true! Honestly, I'm torn between grinding everyone to max stats and seeing the rest of the story. It's been three months since I started playing, but I can see it lasting the rest of the summer at the very least.

On home consoles, I've been playing Ni No Kuni a lot. It has every JRPG trope imaginable in it (for both story and gameplay), but it does most of them well. The familiar system is poorly done though. The creatures themselves are endearing (Captain Whamtastic is my current avatar), but the actual creature taming method is completely luck-based, which is often a bad idea in video games. Potential is there, but what we have right now is a less than stellar Pokemon and SMT rip-off. And like WhiteCrow said, there's a lot of hand-holding, which gets annoying after a while. Still a great game though.

 

The fact that it's a PS3 game gets in the way of it becoming a timesink though. Since the game is stuck at home, I can't micromanage my party members or spend nearly as much time on it as any portable RPG. For every hour I invest into Ni No Kuni, I'm clocking another two into Fire Emblem.

So I've been playing Shin Megami Tensei IV recently.

 

As I expected, it's brutal, relentless, and unforgiving from the first moment you step into that tutorial dungeon. You're going to be reloading saves quite a lot.

 

And yet, I can't seem to put the 3DS down...every time I manage to recruit another demon or defeat a boss creature, it feels like an accomplishment. No, I'm not playing on easy mode here, just the infamous default difficulty Atlus is known for.

Recently finished playing persona 4 golden on the ps vita and it is now one of my favorite games. if you are a fan of shin megami tensei and atlus i recommend it.

Capcom announced Breath of Fire VI.

Me: ALL OF MY JOY. I LOVE BREATH OF FIRE. THANK YOU CAPCOM!


Capcom states it's going to be for tablets/ios/pc.

Me: Hmm... well, I guess, I have a decent gaming laptop...but I would've preferred it stay on consoles...


Capcom announces that it will be an online touch screen game.




Me: BURN IN HELL! THANKS FOR RUINING ANOTHER GREAT FRANCHISE!

Capcom's in quite a downward spiral. Only Dragon's Dogma has been something of worth. Look at Resident Evil. Jesus Christ, all that money, hundreds of people on such a POS.

I don't mind BoF having 2D graphic or even a mobile phone game (as long as it has at least same quality as BoF 3/4) but making it online probably kill any chance of it being a classic RPG like BoF was known for, well not including DQ I guess.

I love 2D graphics. However, making this a numbered title, touchscreen and online... is just a slap to the face of all BoF fans.

That's like making Final fantasy XXVI a tablet, touchscreen game to me.
post #507 of 707

IMHO It doesn't really matter if it's touchscreen since the game itself doesn't need super fast reaction, it's just an interface and since they also make it for PC they probably have proper control for non-touchscreen. The real problem is the online portion, if it's used for things like achievement/trophy then it's fine, but if it's gonna turn like FFXI or DQX then the franchise might as well be dead to me.

Now, now... let's not give Squeenix any ideas. smily_headphones1.gif

Best case scenario given what we know is that Breath of Fire VI would be a MMORPG akin to Phantasy Star Online 2. For those not in the know, PSO2 doesn't stray too far from your typical MMORPG and has been out for PC and Vita, but there are plans for Android and iOS ports.

No, that would be the worst case. At least name it BoF Online or something if they want to do that ffs or release non-online numbered game along with it, but Capcom probably does not believe in their own IP enough to do that.

 

Okay I saw more screenshots, looks like another generic mobile MMORPG, BoF in name only. Time to start ignoring this game.

I facepalmed when Final Fantasy XI was announced as a MMORPG. But I've come to terms with it. Final Fantasy XIV being another numbered entry that's a MMORPG doesn't really bother me as much now. Phantasy Star Online 2 isn't terribad, though I wish Sega would do a more traditional RPG like the old tetralogy.

Oh dear gods, I just saw the Breath of Fire VI pics and it's undeniably a casual social game. There have been a number of such casual games, some based on long running Japanese series (Summon Night and Sangokushi come to mind), so I'm guessing they're doing well enough in Japan for it to become a trend. Understandably, most Japanese developers do not care about the opinions of a tiny minority of Westerners (whom, as a market demographic, are usually an afterthought since they're not the prime target audience).
