wow, that looks awesome, Nintendo better bring this game over to the states.  Even small details like the reaction to walking past someone and having your arm be bumped back is staggering, great games like MH3 on the wii even left small details like that out.

Amazing graphics...considering its on Wii...

but the last 30 seconds of the trailer made me remember why I don't like JRPGs much.

cheesy songs/humming sequences are one of the reasons. Its awkward to play in front of other people when things like that happen.


Do you play games to show off your manlyhood or something?


Uh....no...

I'm just saying that things like that are pretty awkward to play through when another person walks by the TV...not just RPGs.

Examples - 

Recently playing God of War 1 when Calliope screams "DADDY!" since when did Ancient greek people call their father "daddy" ?

MGS4 - Pretty much every scene that includes Akiba

And many more....JRPGs have more of those moments...

Well what other reasons don't you play RPGs?

The style of gameplay doesn't interest me much in most JRPGs....thats right, I do play WRPGs....actually no....that was a lie too...the only RPG series I like is Fable.

The stories include a lot of awkward moments like that in the trailer in most and would have been so much better without them.

I don't like repeatedly fighting a certain type of enemy to level up.

FF X-2

But I really want to try them more. Are there any PS3 JRPGs that don't have awkward moments and is a good place to start for JRPG noobs ?

I don't have a nerd basement

 


If you want to play a more noob friendly RPG try the Tales series. I'd try Tales of the Abyss on the PS2. No random battles, action gameplay, no grinding necessary since the Tales games aren't that tough (though grinding never is a problem in Tales games to begin with since the combat is super fun. But like I said, you don't really need to grind and there's difficulty levels to choose from at the beginning that you can change any time), and the stories are good. Tales games don't really have any cringe moments either.

if you own a DS (your profile doesn't list it), try The World Ends With You. Though I won't go into any detail if you don't own one...

Can't say I can think of anything for the PS3 when it comes to RPGs that you might like besides Demon's Soul.

The only reason I would say I'm more excited for Xenoblade is its being made by Monolith and they are amazing when it comes to music. Well at least in the Baten Kaitos games. But yeah I don't know a lot about this game either so thats another reason why. 

 

Its not really Monolith. Sakuraba(Tales, Star Ocean) did Baten Kaitos and Shimomura(Kingdom Hearts, Super Mario RPG, Parasite Eve) did Xenoblade. So yea, different composer than other Monolith games.

 

Well, for me, its already Last Story > Xenoblade since I never liked Xenoblade's battle system. And I didn't expect so much hate on the humming. I like to hum too >.<



"And yet, I've realized that maybe living a "decent" life means you won't ever have a "good" life."

 

even though its quite a greyish setting i love the style of the game. Sometimes too much colour in rpg's give off the wrong vibe... and in saying that i love the art style. Kind of reminds me of vagrant story which i love alot of fond memories of.

Also the combat looks very interesting. Confined spaces with a stealth duck and cover mechanic... looks fun.

I'm just hoping the story is amazing because thats what makes or breaks a good rpg for me. If Lost Odyessey is anything to go by then i'm sure the story line will be good.

lol, ACE Plus did more music than Shomomura...and I think Kiyota but not sure. Ace Plus has the rock thing going on that Sakuraba has though.

That battle system looks aweson, oh and it has towns take that ff13, how come this game has hate over a silly thing like humming??

This game looks awesome, a new genre is born stealth rpg!!! FF RIP long live Last Story hurrah!!



I loved that trailer. The battle system looks really fun, and for the most part the characters don't seem too jRPG-typical. The towns look awesome, and from what I've seen they're massive. Hopefully they are also highly interactive, not just superficially realistic.

 

The graphics are very nice, if a bit drab. jRPG's are typically too colourful, so I can't say I mind much.

 

I don't see much of the "player still in control during cutscenes" thing, which is disappointing, but I was never even sure what he meant by that. Hopefully the game takes a narrative-light approach, as clearly it won't be narrative-free.

 

The humming did seem really corny, and yes I'm disappointed this is yet another game that I probably can't play with other people in the room. My Wii is in the living room, I bought it as a social console. Then there's the reality that Japanese corniness is a big turn-off for much of the market, so is Western corniness (Red Steel 2 cut scenes were so bad I had to stop playing it with others around). If it turns out like that, sales will be limited to the typical audience.

It is largely a technical exercise but feedback is appreciated.

NEED CLEAN PANTS!

That was awesome!!!



Really want. Battle system looks different and FRESH, thank god.

There's a reason why "nerd basement" has negative connotations.

 

There is no reason why these games need to be limited to people willing to tolerate their eccentricities. If they could manage to make these games without the corniness, bad acting and dialogue, they could be a) more enjoyable, b) appealing to more people and c) you could enjoy them with other people. You might even be able to move your Wii, out of the bedroom/basement and into the sitting room where it belongs.
