Damn it, why aren't there any interesting JRPGs yet this gen!?
The only 2 "JRPGs" I've enjoyed this gen have been Demon's Souls and Valkyria Chronicles.
Valkyria is not an RPG. I don't know why it gets grouped as such.
Demon's Souls is an RPG, and it is from Japan.
But it's not really a JRPG if you know what I mean.
I've played about an hour of Lost Odyssey. Things don't look good...
Looking forward to what this year has to offer, I'm not too thrilled.
I guess this year's most notable will be:
Last Rebellion, Final Fantasy 13, Resonance of Fate, and Atelier Rorona.
Last Rebellion looks okay. FF13 seems decent.
RoF I'm sure will at least have a good battle system.
Atelier Rorona, who knows? It sure looks ugly though.
There's also White Knight Chronicles, but that's another non-traditional.
It looks more like PSO.
3D Dot Game Heroes looks like WTF, as does Nier in a different way.
Grr, damn it! I want to have fun w/ a next gen jrpg!( Read more...Collapse )
