Alundra is actually the latest game of a series already. Which comprises Landstalker, Dark Savior and Alundra. And two spin offs being Lady Stalker and Time Stalkers.

Alundra 2 wasn't done by Climax, the series creators.

I was sure you'd post some obscure game that no one has ever heard of. :P



That obscure game used to beworth $250 and its the only game in my PS1 collection that I don't have!!! Panzer where can I obtain this game at a price under that won't kill my pockets. Wonder what its going for right now...(Runs to ebay)

So just because they both have Giant Mechs and God means they are a like? Uh huh...I'd tell you more about the main character but that would spoil an amazing story and I'd go straight to hell for doing so. Have you played the game Redmoon? Just curious.

You should be able to "buy now" much lower than that.

Or if you want you can sit back and wait for eternity with you hand raised in Konami's general direction for not localizing Suikoden I + II for the PSP... like a few people I work with do. :)

No it must be for PS1. But according to ebay you can obtain copies for $50 now. Which is good.

Yep. Had it and was a fan. I even played the end boss a thousand times just to listen to "Small Two of Pieces" (Yes, I was a geek like that). Either way, it's biblical references were certainly served heavily within the game to the point where I was wondering if the game developers were just riding on Eva's success.

I don't know, your best bet would be to wait to Konami to port it to some of the current gen consoles virtual libraries, or that they decide to localize the PSP port.

IIRC Persona 2 is also going for a hefty price.

In my opinion though, not many games are worth a fee of $150+ and Suikoden II or Panzer Dragoon Saga are not worth of their price tag. Unless you take them as collector's items.

Never played Redmoon, but the other thing i liked about Xenogears was the combat system.........

The combat system was one of my biggest issues with Xenogears, truthfully. You start off the game thinking it was going to get deeper and deeper but in the end the battles played out basically the same as the first few fights. The non Mecha fights had so much potential yet crashed and failed.

First Chamelot game after they emancipated themselves from SEGA. And by far their worst game. No doubt they went back to the Shining Force series just as fast.

youre both half right, the Full title was Shin Megami Tensei: Digital Devil saga Pt. I and Pt. II shin megami tensei is just the series title. the sub title is denotes which entry in teh series it is, while most of them are un related. there is also Shin Megami Tensei: Nocturne, and Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner. however all these titles are for PS2, and dont apply. i also believe that the persona series is tied to the shin megami tensei line, which were the only ones released stateside for PSone.

You are correct, they slapped the SMT name on it in America to capitalize off the release of Nocturne.

In Japan they're called: Digital Devil Saga: Avatar Tuner I and II
