Time and Etirnity ( PS3/ Fall Release )

 

 These are the ones I am interested in.

lundy86_4

I have only heard bad things about that game, just a heads up.

Skip to 2:30.

Field animations are terribad. Battle animations are close. I'll have to wait and see.

Looks better than some of the JRPGs that the PS3 has right currently. The PS3 has a low median of good JRPGs. I guess you could say this generation has it as well.

I may be a monster, but at least us monsters don't rob our own kind, least of all children and the elderly. We also get paid. :|

And yeah, we need strikethrough.

Hey, I'm a killer, not a torturer. I don't use whips. >:/

I never understood the popularity of Neptunia, at least Time and Eternity stands out because of how bad it is.

Yangire

Low expectations leading to much surprise? Who knows? Giving it a shot myself just to find out. :P

Barring handhelds, I agree. Though, even handhelds don't seem quite up to the PS2 calibre. I'll see how that game unfolds.

Well that's nice, doesn't change those games looking dreadful, chances are they will be all dreadful like jrpgs in general.

#109 Posted by Slashkice (13587 posts) -

I still doubt it's more than a fan-service lolifest.funsohng

I dunno, below all the uguu~ I actually had a good time with the demo.

Low expectations leading to much surprise?

Technoweirdo

But this probably had a lot to do with it too.

You're missing many others. Here's three more for the OP: Fire Emblem Awakening (3DS), Unchained Blades (3DS), Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the TItan (3DS).
#114 Posted by yokofox33 (30258 posts) -

Count me in for Pokemon X/Y, Tales of Xillia, Soul Hackers, SMT4, and Pandora's Tower.

I already have the masterpiece that is Ni No Kuni.

Man i havent even beat the first game.. i dont think neptunia is for me but i usually get them for cheap just for collection purposes.

funsohng

I've heard from fans that the gameplay in the first one sucks. The second is supposedly a sizeable improvement, and Victory is said to improve the game further.

I still doubt it's more than a fan-service lolifest.

They're releasing an Anime based on Victory so I'd assume the story is at least decent.

[QUOTE="wakefulness"]All-Stars is fun. Seeing Kratos flex his muscles in a taunt than get slapped all the way across a Locoroco stage (in the middle of said taunt) by a Fat Princess holding a fish as a weapon is priceless. (To say the least)

 

Your sentiments on next gen kind of mirror the fatigue I saw happen in the dual gen transition between snes and n64 or sega genesis and PS2. Everyone later played on or owned PS2 and N64 and loved it; just not every ex-video game owner/enthusiast jumped onboard the hype train day one.

 

The big difference between the previous gen transitions to todays ripe gaming environment might be the "Kool-aid" PC+Mobile devs and small time publishers (on PC, mobile, and similar open source platforms) have distributed to casual gamers. That Kool-aid might be sitting well in between the meals the big three have been giving gamers. 

 

And it wont surprise me to see these mobile and PC developers say to those fatigued on consoles say, "Hey, I know you don't own a console because your sick of it. Remember that [phone/PC] you have? Why not make a little upgrade? Buy a few games? Why not get on this new [service/contract]? Eh?" . . . Than next thing you know, these people are just sweeped into that ecosystems hardware and software. Bam! The Kool-aid worked! 

 

Not that I'm hating on PC and mobile, but I don't sip that Kool-aid. Mainly because it's closed-business on open-sourced platforms. Your basically heading into a path where you play games on something you might never be pleased while most of your games are DRM ridden backlog fluff. 

 

tl;dr I think a lot about people making statements on PC and Mobile over taking my precious consoles. XD

freedomfreak

That's an interesting take on how you see the industry, and where it is going. I'm not a fan myself of all that DRM stuff. Everything seems to be so tied to an account and everything. Even the whole moving against used games, online passes. All of that is just turning me off. There's too much control already, and I don't see it becoming any better in the future.

 

I agree. I mean, I don't like that stuff either (no one in their right mind should enjoy punching in an online pass). I've seen and experienced that evil side of the business through second hand observation (and VITA has online codes for some games). It's like consoles grab your precious time for gaming, put it through a field of crap, kicks it around, spits on it, looks at you and your time while it's laughing and spitting, than it locks you in a room with your time while the console is just their, farting up the room . . . and there is nothing you can do but sit there and take it all in.

 

Thankfully though, we can go to gaming blogs and have conversations on games. I think these things give us a certain level of awareness and we can learn to avoid certain pitfalls in and around the gaming business. Some evil goings on are unavoidable (i.e. we probably don't know if a game we buy will need a patch day one, but we will probably know if it's good based on the developer behind it) but overall I get the feeling we know better than most. And we as consumers influence change.

 

PS3's pitfalls already influenced changes. PS4 seems to fix a lot of the problems of previous gen. Game suspending. Background downloading. Video game footage sharing. I like that. It tells me SCE is a corperation that made the PS3 a laughing stock, got kinda ticked off and fixed all of it in the form of Ps4. It tells me you where a sacrifice and that's sad. But, hey, I can actually get the console you always wanted.

 

Think about me, freedom. Think about the children. . . .

What makes you assume that?

Soul Hackers, SMTIV, only worthwhile games on that list.

Time and eternity?

  

 

So it's THAT kind of game...

Clock-w0rk

 

Why'd you edit? :}

 

Also, (just as an fyi) I had heard tentacles have been an exotic fetish in Japan for a long time. Some of those fantasies where established (in Japanese culture) long before the hentai you dirty dirty people watch. (You should all feel disgusted with yourselves!)

 

You nasty boys. :x

 

:lol:

 

Hey man. Just saying.

 

What you perverts do is JUST DISGUSTING. Eww! You stupid-tenticle-idiots.

 

Stop being so damn dumb! Okay?!? Tired of it.

:P

finalstar2007
Uh, except for the fact FF XIII-3 will be on 360 as you pointed out above. 360's list of rpgs is fairly slim still compared to the other systems. A real shame too. Microsoft needs those jrpgs in order to compete better in Japan and over here too with the rpg lovin crowd such as my girl and her nephew.

So, it still belongs on this nice list. I'm playing it now on my Fire Emblem 3ds:) Lots of fun. Really stretches your brain out. A breath of fresh air from twitchy first person shooters. On a seperate note, I picked up FF III for 3ds yesterday at the local kmart that's fixin to shut down for $16.00:) Too much 3ds rpg goodness.

Well yeah neither should be on the list. Not like Finalstar plays them though so we can't really expect him to change the OP.

[QUOTE="funsohng"]Wow, so many bad games!Yangire

lol says you u dont even play jrpgs why even have fire elbmen sig if u dont even like jrpgs?? >_>

Toki to Eien ~Toki Towa~ (?) alsoknown as Time and Eternity is a quality game even famitsu gave it a 32 out of 40 (^^; ), kotaku said Richard Eisenbeis of Kotaku highly praised it, saying, "if you like JRPGs, this one is a must-play", though he did note the animation's "lack of polish".[18]

kotaku isnt really as cool as siliconera but i like there name (*--*) besides toki toawa we have many quality gamu (the japanese call that game (>=< )/) like Kami Jigen Game Neptune V?  (hyperdimension neptunia victory in the west (>.< )

please look forward to these~~ arigato gosamasu

So... which bet did you lose?
