No offense, but is the Atelier series really a stellar JRPG series? This gen is so disappointing.

Nippon Ichi is great for quirky games, but I highly doubt their ability to make compelling, serious storylines.

I am so mad at Capcom. It wouldn't be so bad if UC wasn't so TERRIBLE. If I remember correctly, they originally intended it to be a scenario game but quickly changed it to a rail shooter. Which seems to make sense, because halfway through the game it turns to PS2 levels and the effort put into the game is laughable. Nemesis - with a robot voice that sounds like it was simply altered through a freeware wave editor? REALLY Capcom?

I guess I'll just have to keep buying amazing PS1 games. Sadly, the best games I bought last gen were PS1 games I found (like Xenogears in mint condition found in a gamestop).

Of course, there will be and are great games this gen. I'm personally looking forward to Heavy Rain and Final Fantasy XIII - which I hope will be a solid JRPG.

No, there were a few JRPGs on the PS2. Look them up. They don't seem to be anything special.

Not to kill your buzz but how is it 'continuing the roll' when all you have seen of this game is a 100 word blurb on a PS3 website?

I played Atelier Iris, and it was shockingly archaic. Not bad, but old-fashioned. I doubt they'll move to 3D on this.

Nope, I want more mature turn-based JRPG's. We've already had some, so I don't see the need for all the cliches that have made the genre get old and tiresome over the years.

I know both have their share of JRPG cliches, but they offer maturity, too. The great thing about LO is that Kaim, Seth, Jansen, etc, aren't whiny emo tween boys or girls. The only 2 childish characters ARE children so it's understandable.

Why are the links that say ps3 and playstation bring up 360 advertisments when you mouse over them? "It says finacial times tough go for the sure thing"...lol.... nice try m$ come on...why does a ps3 site have 360 ads? i don't make any sense, where the web admins for that site just looking for cash...seriously there shouldn't be 360 ads on a pro ps3 site.. I've never heard of this site before.

Hey, atleast we can look forward to Resident evil wii.........................................................which is actually just another rail shooter like umbrella chronicles..

(Yes I agree with you, this gen is disappointing me and I'm bitter)

I am so mad at Capcom. It wouldn't be so bad if UC wasn't so TERRIBLE. If I remember correctly, they originally intended it to be a scenario game but quickly changed it to a rail shooter. Which seems to make sense, because halfway through the game it turns to PS2 levels and the effort put into the game is laughable. Nemesis - with a robot voice that sounds like it was simply altered through a freeware wave editor? REALLY Capcom?

I guess I'll just have to keep buying amazing PS1 games. Sadly, the best games I bought last gen were PS1 games I found (like Xenogears in mint condition found in a gamestop).

Of course, there will be and are great games this gen. I'm personally looking forward to Heavy Rain and Final Fantasy XIII - which I hope will be a solid JRPG.

My faith in the industry as a whole is basically non existant since we here as gamers sit back and realize the stupid decisions they make but some how they don't notice. I want to say Capgod shocked me but they didn't, I predicted this, and that is the sad part. I have played few games this gen that I have actually been excited for from announcement to release date. Sad, the gen is great for people who are intersted in certain types of games but for me, well I'll just go back to playing my SNES and PS1. Someone wake me when something interesting is announced. Oh, and Umbrella Chronicles sucked as well.

Anyway, lets see where Ichi takes this, could be interesting.

I played and beat 1 and 2. I cant find 3. I like the artstyle. I would think they wouldint go 3d,but make the sprites hd.

this gen has really been lacking in terms of JRPG's as a whole the only good ones were lost odessy and Valkyria Chronicles. there are other good ones but nothing great here's hoping it's awsome
