Your safe bet would be to order the physical pack though... which is shipped from Japan!

Well, I just scored big on a yard sale yesterday. Four games, $1 each.

 

Two of them are PS2 Castlevania titles and thus not JRPGs, so I'll cut to the chase:

 

-Chrono Cross. Greatest Hits label, complete in case with both discs. Pretty nice find, but it pales in comparison to...

 

-Suikoden II. Case, disc, but no manual...like I'm going to really nitpick on paying $1 for a game that people are willing to pay $115 for just to get the disc, no case or manual. I knew eBay prices were stupid high the moment I saw it and needed to take it home on the spot, but not THAT high...

 

Now I gotta get the original Suikoden; there's an old save bonus in 2 that I can't take advantage of otherwise.

WTF..... Suikoden II.... my fave game of all time. Luckily i bought a like new copy for $95 a long time ago (after I accidentally sold my first one). I had originally bought it when it was first released, but since I played the hell out of it, I didn't think I'd play it again, and sold it. What a mistake that was. But at least I reacquired it. the only way I'll sell it now is if becomes available on PSN (WHY OH WHY IS IT STILL NOT THERE?)

But at least the original is on PSN.

I have all the main Suikodens...

I (bought it used, in fair condition, no manual, but real case), and also bought it off PSN.
II (like new, with everything)
III (used in fair condition with everything)
IV (brand new)
Tactics/Rhapsodia (brand new)
V (brand new)
Tierkries (brand new)

By brand new, means that I bought them that way, but I have opened them, obviously.

Suikoden II for $1, damn I've been on a look out for cheaper ones desperately for collection purposes. The prices for SII these days are mental, I hope I'll find that one cheap copy in the future.

There's only Suikoden (probably 1, not sure) in PSN. Hopefully they release the others soon. Really want to know what's so hyped about them.

Well, gameplay-wise, the Suikodens are pretty standard fare, though Suikoden II mastered what made the first one good. The best, battle-mechanic wise was V, and overall story would be III. IV is the black sheep, but I still enjoyed it as a hardcore Suiko fan. II is considered the best because it does everything well, from amazing 2D graphics, fantastic battle system, and very personal story.

Definitely start with the first game since it's very short for a JRPG (around 25 hours), and sets up the second game which should make you a fan enoufh to wanna play the others.

The main attraction is the ability to recruit 108 characters, around 2/3 being playable, while the others maintain aspects of your base/headquarters, like shops, etc. There's so many characters to love, many with unique back stories (some which expand from one game to another game).

Now I wanna play some Suiko...for the millionth time.

Currently about 45 hours in on Tales of Xillia though...

I played one of the Suikoden. I or II I'm not sure. But we made a HQ castle in the middle of the sea. Too bad didn't finish it cause I emulated it on my Atrix phone. I'll restart it again when everything rolls out on PSN. Hopefully.

And I'm like 30hrs in Ni no Kuni. I'm sacrificing my GTA5 for this game cause it's just so darn AWESOME!

The middle of the Toran Lake, lol. That's the first Suikoden. smily_headphones1.gif

I might give Ni No Kuni another chance after I finish Xillia. Just wasn't impressed by it's battle system and the standard fare monster capturing. I'm sick of using monster characters as playable ones.
post #550 of 751

To be honest, I forgot the storyline in I and IV which is a sign that I must replay them again.

 

Currently playing Xillia straight to hard mode, it is quite challenging for me and I like it. There are certain aspects that NNK beats Xillia flat out (like the music & environment sound) but Xillia is holding its own in my opinion so maybe you should give NNK a chance MLE :D

So i put this up, because, well, it's going to be a JRPG in all but actually being Japanese.

This brings back the good old JRPG days, and I'm totally going to help fund it even if just a little.

I don't see people complaining about that with Pokemon lol

Yeah, its a popular category of JRPG. I outgrew Pokemon ages ago, and I prefer having a team of fleshed out characters, rather than generic monsters that you capture. This is why Pokemon, SMT Nocture, NNK, FFXIII-2, and other monster catching games don't do it for me. Bear in mind, I played/beat them all (except NNK which I payed the demo)

Ni No Kuni is great, I thoroughly enjoyed it.  Its only weakness is that the story falls apart/gets really weird and stupid towards the very end, but it's not enough portion of the game to really matter that much.

 

Yeah it's very pokemon-esque in that you capture and use familiars to do a lot of your battling, but eventually you'll just get used to it and realize it really isn't like pokemon that much at all.  Also, Oliver is way more useful towards the end of the game anyways.  Besides pokemon is great.

NnK's soundtrack is epic. It really feels like I'm in fantasy world. 

Oh I see. Maybe it's not suited for you then.
