theyve been real busy with P5 the last few years, it was delayed several times and came out much later than they hoped, and they are working on SMT 5 and then they apparently had a p5 mosou going and who knows how long they had been working on that which comes out next year too. maybe now that p5 is done and scamble is almost done they'll do something with those, id be down to see P3 FES and P4Golden remastered, but ive also seen there is early ideas going for P6, but it will be a new lead, apparently the old persona series lead is off to pursue other things now.

Man, I REALLY wanted to see you go up against Orphan, but I don't blame you lol. Taking out Ludwig is super impressive because he's insanely tough. Probably my favorite boss fight of the entire game, actually. It's definitely a toss-up between him and Lady Maria.

Yeah I remember the frustration last time. I did decide to load up another character and finish the chalice work though. I'm actually insanely close to the plat trophy but I need to kill you know who.

i dont think botw will be "sticking it" to ps5 and scarlett, its two different consumer bases and demographics of player. will it sell great, ya, but will it take anything from those platforms? no. that gap will widen even more with the new consoles as the tech will be too far apart for them to share the big games and there will be def be different markets for next gen and switch, but nintendo has long said they dont feel they compete with anyone they just do their thing, maybe another reason why they are content to release in the middle of the big kids generations. but they may not want to be too far off, as switch was said to be a 5 year plan and they'd be looking at a switch 2 in 2022 or so.

Ys: Memories of Celceta coming to the PS4 in Spring 2020. 60fps, full HD graphics, and optimized controls to reproduce the touchscreen functions of the Vita version. I feel like I'm so far behind on the Ys games, but I'll definitely grab this at some point.

Honestly might be the worst Ys game I've played. Which makes it...still playable for sure and I did beat it.

Probably a toss up between VII and MoC.

im going to guess this probably isnt that great nor are the production values very high, as this was a mobile game turned vita game in japan and its pretty old, but the premise is really interesting.. you start the game having already defeated the boss, at the cost of your life, and the gods due to your bravery are giving you five days to get your affairs in order, but you dont remember what they are. you start the game at end game level and get weaker as you go. you'll piece together who you are, who the girl you died to protect was, and complete quests to give the world the best future you can, apparently there are over 50 endings depending on how much you can accomplish in your five days.


doesnt look like something id pay much for but the premise is pretty different at least.

ya i thought it was odd they didnt call it 3, they are calling it 2, i was expecting it to be called bravely third, unless maybe it is connected directly to default in some special way



also the new trailer for FF7R is next level, the hype has never been bigger ... even with my love for the witcher and all things CDPR i think FF7R is more anticpated than CP2077 for me if only by a little

It's pretty much the opposite of that. Bravely Second was a direct sequel to the first game, and this one appears to have a new setting and new characters. So if this one gets a direct sequel, they'll call it Bravely Third and then release Bravely Default 3 later down the line. Lol

If you've never played NNK then you're in for a treat. It's a really special game. I bought the remastered version on the PS4 just to support the devs, but I doubt I'll get around to replaying it.

I saw AI: The Somnium Files on sale for $30 on Amazon, so I have that coming in now. Not sure if it even has any RPG elements but I see it listed in the OP, so whatever. I finally got around to replacing my right joy con, which had some extremely noticeable drift, so I'll finally finish Witcher 3 this week. It became unplayable with the camera spinning all over the place, lol.

And yeah, Ni No Kuni is excellent.

It's from the creator of the Zero Escape series, so the writing should be solid. I just need to finish the main quest in Witcher 3 (pretty much did all the side stuff) and then I'll get started on AI. I've been wanting to play it, but was just waiting to get it for $35 or less.

They've been showing us footage that looks like its almost ready for over a year now. This has to be coming out soon. Versus, the 2.5D fighting game, comes out in February in Japan. So I'd have to imagine this is coming out in like April or May.

youve already done hearts of stone and blood and wine?

Yeah, for the most part, Tony. I put off finishing the main story until I did that stuff. I do still have a couple of quests in Blood and Wine that I still need to complete. My right joy con drift eventually got so bad that I couldn't play the game comfortably anymore. I started playing old school 2D side-scrollers instead, which ended up being a good thing, since it increased the number of games I've beaten this year by quite a bit. (And removing those games from my backlog in the process.)

go ahead and finish the main story and then finish up the DLC, they are meant to be after the main quest anyway, so dont worry about trying to do them before completing that. the end of blood and wine is the end of the story of Geralt of Rivia pretty much.

Yeah, it is a little weird how it talks about his "beloved Triss" when they haven't actually ended up together yet, lol. I'll finish the main quest and then knock out those last two Blood and Wine quests to wrap it all up then. If I decide to come back to the game again later (and I likely will), then I still have all those question marks on the map to discover. Most of the ones I haven't been to are in Skellige and are mostly just smugglers crates, but I may get the urge to go after them anyway. That was my favorite map to explore.

I know we usually discuss JRPGs here, but I want to give some love to Divinity Original Sin 2. The game has so much damn content and I have been obsessed with it for a good week now. Definitely one of the best RPGs of this gen and I only wish there was a cross save feature so I could move between the PS4 and Switch versions of the game. That's something I'd really like to see more from multiplatform games.

I don't know what I would have done had Ciri died during my playthrough. I honestly think I would have broken my PS4 lol.

I mean who's not on board for Witcher IV day fudging one. You gotta be insane if not. I must admit I'm not as hyped for Cyberpunk mainly cause 1st person shooters don't interest me much, even if they are RPGs. However it's CDPR so I gotta trust the story will be great.

yes. play the main quest and then do hearts of stone to completion and then blood and wine to completion. at the end of main quest you are the right levels for hearts of stone and then blood and wine finishes the story of not only the witcher 3 but of Geralt as well.


also... regarding the ciri choice. dont do it.


empress is the bad ending, witcher ciri is the good ending

you do. you need to let ciri be herself and stand for herself and have the snowball fight to get the good ending, trying to "parent" her will lead you to the bad endings. she doesnt want to be empress and in some she even dies.

ya this looks so amazing, it just keeps creeping up my list for next year. not excited about the multiplayer thing though, i wish these companies didnt feel the need to shoehorn multiplayer into everything, rpgs are some of the games where thats needed the least and it just takes resources. if we could get the finished game months earlier id much rather a more polished game and sooner than MP.

I just recently bought the first one for the switch since it was on sale and barely had enough money to buy it and saw the third one is more expensive than the first two game. Why is that? I saw that third hero being in smash too and is that game popular or what?

3rd is considered one of the best.

IMO the best are
4
8
and 11

I also really like 7.

I'd play 8 and 11 first. Then if you really like those look into the rest.

The early ones are pretty rough.

the early stuff will be hard to play these days, 8 and 11 are the far and away best in the series and some of the best games ever in general. they'll introduce you to dragon quest things and if you really like them you'll find things to like about most of the others probably.

Yeah the earliest I'd play is 4-6 on DS. Try 11 on switch or 8 on 3DS first and if you really dig it. 7, 4, 5, and 6 are all good.

Thanks for the advise. I will get 11 when there is a discount for it. I'm still going to play the first one regardless.

Glad to hear it; I still enjoy the first 3 myself. Yes, the first can be a bit rough, but having cleared the first one on Switch, it's a good entry point to the series without all the clunks from the NES version. 2 and 3 then expand so much and bring things toward the modern DQ we all know and love now. Plus, seeing that first trilogy is a nice touch.

the true ending of DQ11 is also absolutely goosebump inducing if you are a series vet, i still think about that sometimes and i played on ps4 at launch so thats been like a year or more

Yeah, I'm really looking forward to trying Tokyo Mirage Sessions again. I just couldn't get into it on the Wii U, but I love me some Atlus so I'm definitely going to give it another shot.

I never even played it. BUT, it does look up my alley. Since I like SMT and FE. I don't think I'll have trouble getting in to it. Hot damn is Ni no Kuni charming though. So glad I have a chance to finally beat it.

I am sending huge hope vibes into the either for a Baten Kaitos 1&2 collection. Those are seriously the only 2 games I'd consider buying a gamecube again for. Release them again so I don't have to struggle over this!!

Baten Kaitos had an amazing soundtrack and probably one of my favorite battle themes... I'd be all over a collection (along with Suikoden, Mother,Shadow Hearts...)

I bought Ni No Kuni for Switch today so I'm looking forward to it.

I'm a big fan of SMT and FE, but dunno about the bubbly "in your face" JPop vibes from TMS... missed out of this on Wii U. I may wait a sale out for this one since (hopefully) SMTV is on the horizon

I'm big on FE and SMT as well and thought it was vomit inducing.

Ni no Kuni was a gem in the PS3 era. So very few great RPGs and that game stands out indeed. I don't mind Jpop. Except in games like Persona where the atmospheric music used to be dark and eerie. But jpop fits in TMS.

Yeah as the insane RPGer here those 2 were the gem of the RPGs on gamecube, for sure.
