Thought it was pretty average.

It was too awkward and bug-ridden to be a good game.

And then there was that weird fascination with lesbianism the game has.

FFXIII - Looking forward to it.

That was a lot of text.

I heard something on X-Play about pre-ordering Final Fantasy XIII to get into the beta of Final Fantasy XIV, which will apparently be an MMO just like FFXI. It was in a Japanese gaming magazine, so there's no telling whether the US market will follow suit.

I think I recall seeing the same thing on X-Play...
Has Final Fantasy completely moved out of turn-based battle and moved on that real-time stuff? I haven't played the later FFs yet...

Final Fantasy Versus XIII should be an action RPG, but the main Final Fantasy XIII promises to be very much a turn-based affair.

Although, I believe there are combos of some sort in Final Fantasy XIII.

Tales of Updates

News on Tales of Graces being confirmed for a Europe release have been floating around for a few days now, and this scan from The Official Nintendo Magazine somewhat confirms this (courtesy of tylerx27 from GameFAQs). According to the scan, Tales of Graces will be released in Europe on Summer 2010.

However, we still don't have any news on a US release. I hope they're not thinking of leaving the NA audience out on all the hype...

Have any of you played Infinite Undiscovery yet? Despite the ridiculously dumb name, it is really great. The real time combat makes it superb, but the game has terrible voice syncing issues.

To be honest, I'm pretty hyped for Arc Rise Fantasia myself. I saw it in a GI mag and it looked really interesting.

All this stiff stuff about innovation and what not, it'll be good to get my hands on an old fashioned generic turn based anime-esque jrpg.

I know the saying, "Don't judge a book by it's cover," but I picked up my pre-ordered copy of Mass Effect 2 today and did a little side-by-side comparison to the original: It went from the perfect illustration of a Space Opera to a picture of Shepard, Lemon-Face, and the chick from "House M.D." A columnist for The Escapist suggests that EA is trying to appeal more to fans of the Shooter genre than to RPG lovers.
Besides, I've found a Role-Playing Shooter I enjoy; Borderlands. It may not have space elevators, but it has online co-op. Also, the cartoony graphic style helps keep it light and fun - I could only play Fallout 3 for a couple of hours at a time before the realistic depiction of post-apocalyptic DC got a little depressing.

Can I join!? I LOVE RPGs!!! Name one and I either like it or would if I had played it. I especially like strategy RPGs, like Fire Emblem and Final Fantasy Tactics. BTW, when did they make a new Tales game? I haven't heard anything about it. Also, that article said that Dawn of the New World was disappointing. I actually liked it.

I need to stop rambling.

I have not bought that game because it seems to remove everything I like about the RPG genre.

Most importantly, the story.

Story may be good, but overall, the addition of the RPG elements makes the game really good. It doesn't really need story to make it better.

Bought it. Loved it. Beat it twice. However, it's not as much as an RPG as Mass Effect 1 was. There's less customization, less armor types, less weapons, mods, everything. The RPG part of it has been simplified too much for me, and it's a bit too focused on the action. That said, it's still much better than Mass Effect 1, and it was cool to see how personal decisions changed the entire complexion of the galaxy.

(Signs the club roster indiscreetly)

Can anyone recommend some good RPGs these days? I'm not asking objectively, I honestly don't know what's out there anymore, preferably anything for a Playstation console since that's all I have right now. Right now I've been playing old Final Fantasies again and again.

Try Persona. That game is pretty epic.

*one month later*

So I have FFXIII, I'd rather be playing Vesperia.

Don't get me wrong, FFXIII is decent, but man, this game makes me glad I'm a Tales fan.

Been playing Mass Effect 2. It's great.

It improved on absolutely everything from the first game. Except for the story.

The character interactions are better, and I love the character loyalty quests. But the overall story seems a bit less focussed. A little like Empire Strikes back to Mass Effect 1's Star Wars.

Also, interesting note.

I'm playing a female Shepard. The only romance options available to me are:

The most boring man on the planet.
Someone who looks like what you'd get if Alien and Predator had a baby.
And some crazy fish person that looks like Abraham Sapien from Hellboy.

I chose the fish person. Specifically because he randomly lapses into James Elroy style monologues, and that's pretty damn awesome.

---

I've also been playing FFXIII. I'm about five hours into it, and I'm really enjoying it.

I can really understand why a person might not like it, but you have to go into it with the right mindset. You're definitely not going to get a Fallout 3 style open world adventure.

You have to understand that FFXIII is more like watching an anime series than any game ever before it. You also have to be able to marvel at some of the amazing vistas, and have that distract you from the incredibly linear exploration.

I miss town exploration, and talking to people, and I wouldn't like every game I play to be like this, but it's still a good game.

It helps that it has some of the best cutscenes I've seen in a game. It's not like MGS4 where the cutscenes are all exposition. It's action action action all the way. Like Cowboy Bebop to MGS4's Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex.

And I'm loving the fast paced battle system.

It's not the direction that I'd like all future FFs to go. It would get boring if they kept trying to blur the line between game and anime. But as a single game, I really enjoy it.

Though I've still got a long way to go, and plenty of time to screw up.
