Looks like i forgot a few on PS3 but its all cool, anyone want me to add anything post on the comments

Given the quality of these JRPGs coming out on main consoles recently, you are basically arguing which console will get the worst RPGs and which will be saved from them.

Some of those could be decent though.

Im sorry you feel that way, all the above games are great games for me and im too excited for each one of them.. yes each game listed is a must buy on my side

#5 Posted by dercoo (12555 posts) -

I just want more info on Ni no Kuni, like a release date....:(

Well, that and FF13 vs

#6 Posted by timmy00 (15360 posts) -

The only one I really want is Disgaea 4. Maybe those Tales games too.

#7 Posted by theuncharted34 (14529 posts) -

You own every JRPG that comes out on PS3, so it's really not surprising you can find something like Neptunia to be great. You eat those NISA games up.
#9 Posted by kairikh (1387 posts) -

right now thinkin ni no kuni, tales of xillia, tales of graces, and versus if im not dead by the time it gets a release date.

#10 Posted by fueled-system (6313 posts) -

Neptunia was decent and i was glad i played it, some games arent worth buying till they get a price drop like agrest zero for example, no buy till its 20 or less. i dont just get them tho i play them all 8)

Seeing how Namco is finally looking at the market outside of japan there is a huge chance in xillia coming over after Graces F. first we gotta support Graces F

#13 Posted by OneSanitarium (6924 posts) -

The only game I'm even remotely interested in is Rune Factory.

Mainly looking forward to the persona 2: innocent sin port/remake for psp for now. Will eventually get get around to checking out the new tales games and maybe the FF's, although ive already got more than enough rpgs in my backlog to keep me occupied for a loooong time.
#22 Posted by Wanderer5 (25724 posts) -

Nah, Catherine is an adventure/puzzle game.

#28 Posted by Ziek-AAT (717 posts) -

Both Tales games would be nice, hopefully Graces sells well so Namco can change their mind. Disgaea 4 I'm definately getting because I like the series. Need more info for Ni No Kuni, I really like Studio Ghibli but Level-5, not so much...

WTF am I saying? Dark Souls will be better than all those games :P

Minus the RPG yeah that is pretty accurate =P

#31 Posted by stizz- (734 posts) -

A good list. I am particularly excited about Atelier Totori and Disgaea 4. I think I'm going to go ahead and import Tales of Xillia since I'm impatient. You left out the Handhelds though. Atlus has got a few games coming out; Namely Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor Overclocked for the 3DS, Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 for the DS, and Shin Megami Tensei: Innocent Sin (argh, SMT spam!)

Xseed has got Solatorobo: Red the Hunter on the way. Aksys has by far the oddest picks in Fate/Extra and Hakuoki: Demon of the Fleeting Blossom (something for the ladies). Speaking of Aksys, they did release an Xbox 360 version of Record of the Agarest War Zero not too long ago. Not upcoming, obviously, but still...

#38 Posted by Crazyguy105 (9513 posts) -

the only decent looking JRPG on that list is Ni no Kuni.

you're actually hyping up Hyperdimension Neptunia 2? I thought PS3 owners had plenty of games to look forward. Why are you looking forward to one of the worst? :lol:

#39 Posted by Badosh (12741 posts) -
The two Tales games and FF13-2, don't really care about the rest. Well, Versus too, but yeah... :P
#40 Posted by princemarth23 (9229 posts) -

I mainly want the FF and Tales games you listed.

Yup showing to people what games are coming out= hype threads totally your so right :)

neptunia 1 wasnt bad of a game i actually enjoyed it, i'd give it a 6 tho but yea i hear part 2 fixed lots of stuff so i want it and i know im not the only one, the game sold pretty well for NISA to be very willing to bring it over

#42 Posted by SaltyMeatballs (25150 posts) -
You forgot Pokemon 3DS, probably coming out next year (maybe in Japan first?) which will destroy anything you just listed. Also, Paper Mario 3DS next year. From what you listed though, only Ni no Kuni is remotely interesting.

The only Pokemon game coming to the 3DS is some crappy looking action RPG, you talking about that?

As much as I enjoy the Pokemon RPG games, they're mostly the same game everytime just with a couple new features, pokemon and a new setting. In sales Pokemon will crush but in quality games like Tales, Ni No Kuni & Disgaea 4 will be much better.
#45 Posted by Dead-Memories (6586 posts) -

those all look horrendous.

Nope I meant in quality. Anyway Tales games are the same. It will be better than Disgaea 4. Only Ni no Kuni looks good.
#47 Posted by DJChuy (1813 posts) -

From the list, I'm only interested in Versus XIII, XIII-2, and the Tales games. I enjoyed FFXIII's battle system, so that's why I'm getting XIII-2.

As for the others: I've never heard of Rune Factory. Haven't heard much of Ni no Kuni to get excited - the graphics are beautiful however. Never played an Atelier game before, so I'm not really interested in Totori atm. I have Rorona in my Gamefly list, so that may change. Hyperdimesion Neptunia is just not for me; I dislike the character designs.

I didn't like WKC, so WKC2's out of the picture. Might rent it to see some of the changes they've made. As for Disgaea 4, I kind of got burned out with the series, mostly because of lack of change and not living up to the characters of the first one, imo. Disgaea 3 was D2, which was D1. It's not a bad series, but I'm going to take a break from the Disgaea series.

#48 Posted by omho88 (3967 posts) -

I lol'd at the desert in the OP, I have to admit, there is1 palm in this desert the pic missed, FFXIII-2 .... anyway, as for the PS3 line up, it's really not that impressive, the only 2 games that are really intresting are Ni No Kuni and FFVXIII, and both have ??? release date, and I believe they will be ??? for a long time.

I disagree, Pokemon may add only a few features but things such as new moves, abilities, and new Pokemon completely change the metagame. The quality and depth the Pokemon games surpass those of the ones you listed.

those all look horrendous.

everything looks horrendous compared to your avatar.
