DS version of Chrono Trigger is pretty much the best version.

I dunno… I found the first Ys pretty rough… Enjoyed the PSV one and Origins though.

I think the final 2% pulled a muscle in their face when the math didn’t add up and their nervous twitch kicked into overdrive.

I spent a lot of time grinding early on for the optional boss for the first dungeon… afterwards, I spent a few days powering through the dungeons, getting cards and what not as I leveled, but not as hardcore as I did initially… I was pretty much overleveled for everything after the first dungeon, so I had a lot of extra days left for social stuff thankfully.

Yup. PS1 games aren’t as easy to come by, and a lot of the good ones go for a pretty penny (unless you find someone completely awesome who is willing to get rid of their old games).

Emulation is always an option… but you didn’t hear that from me.

You play the game day by day, basically… but its not real-time days.

So you basically: wake up, go to school, maybe spend lunch with a friend, and then decide what to do after school. Spent time with a friend again, enter the TV world, take up a part time job, join a school club, and so on.

Everything outside the TV is basically for the social link between characters.

Shit… Woady beat me to it.

Yeah, P4 is chock full of time-killing enjoyment.

I think I finished out my first playthrough in like 80 hours or something ridiculous.

It’s basically a Japanese take on the Western-style RPG… It has really fun combat, a strange but endearing story, and some terrible voice acting here and there… Overall, its one of my favorite games of last gen.

Up to Greed Island in HxH now… They’ve been really faithful to the manga so far, which is something I appreciate in an anime.

Even though Netflix only has up to episode 100 (or so), I’ve been told that its on Crunchy Roll and viewable without the sub up to like 140, so that sorts me out for a bit longer.

Other than Vesperia, I can’t think of another RPG that I’ve played recently… its all old PS1/SNES era ones for me… Bioware games aside.

Oh oh. And not sure if it really counts as a standard RPG, but anyone who doesn’t play Dragon’s Dogma is dead to me… so yeah. It’s also probably pretty cheap even if you pick up the Dark Arisen version (original game + expansion basically).

Comment

If you can get P3 for cheap, I’d say pick it up if you end up enjoying P4 (or vice versa).

Storywise they’re not really connected I believe, but the overall feel of the games are pretty similar.

I’ll add Final Fantasy 12 to the list as well… not sure how easy it would be to get that game, but PS3 is backwards compatible at least, right?

Tales of Vesperia is pretty nice too… good characters & interactions, but combat isn’t as fun as I found the old 2D Tales games to be… but that’s just me.

Otherwise, I’d be rattling off most of the PS1 RPGs, and ain’t no one got time for that cept Woady.

Comment

Apparently its a lazy ass port, and the load times were built in or some such nonsense.

Sort of like the extended animations that they apparently have in the FFT War of the Lions version of that game.

Pretty sure the safe answer is Chrono Trigger.

Combat isn’t exactly super exciting, but it has a very Pokemon “This magic is strong against that magic which is strong against this magic which…” in that every enemy has a strength and weakness (or multiples of each) which you can take advantage of or be put at a disadvantage by.

When you hit an enemy with something they’re weak to, you pretty much stun them for one turn. If you stun all the enemies in an encounter, you get to do an “all out attack”, for serious damage.

With each character having their own persona with its own strength/weaknesses, and with the main character getting free choice from a huge variety of personas, you’re able to mix and match your group to match any situation really… allowing you a good amount of flexibility in how you want to approach the game with your main guy.

I recommend Persona 4 to anyone in any form they can get it in.

So no big loss really.

3 months is about $3 or so when most people are buying 12 months for $35/40.

No no, but I’ll only be subtle and leave it at my original comment.

It is no one who has posted in today’s PD at least.

Pretty much… you can wait for a better deal and eventually you’ll never buy anything at all.

You have an animated film

Which is fine, but it’s not a game.

Not sure what kind of idiot would do that, but its a special kind of stupid that would do it more than once.
