What games are you playing or looking forward to play?

Recommended Posts

Right now, I'm playing Marvel's Spider-man, Dragon Quest XI, and Yo-kai Blasters.

 

Hoping to finish one or two of those before long because I'm looking forward to Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Mega Man 11, Luigi's Mansion, Spyro and Soul Calibur VI.

You are referring to the Shin Megami Tensei series (which has Nocturne, Digital Devil Saga, Devil Summoner, Persona, and many more under it's umbrella).  I love those series.  Atlus is one of the few publishers/developers that I will purchase from without researching the game first.  If it has their name on it, I know it will be a quality game that I will enjoy.  That is how good they are. 

 

I'm...playing Stardew Valley and hoping I didn't sleep too late to have my first child lol...  Got lofty goals for this playthrough.  Will probably not do much playing for the next few weeks though.

Oh I know right I forgot to mention devil summoner sorry about that. Yah I am basicily a atlus fan boy, and not afraid to admit it.

Another JRPGs series I really like is Tales OF though I probably mentioned that already. Has anyone played Star Ocean as well.

Tales is classic :) Star Ocean I played and loved until the one with Edge Maverick (Last Hope). The only other game I complained about so much was probably DQ8. Edge was and did everything a Captain shouldn't do and I critiqued him nonstop. I couldn't enjoy it for his existence. Then the girl takes over, does a great job, I am digging her awesomeness and competence, then rolls over to let him take it back and screw everything up all over again. That was my last Star Ocean game....  ~sighs~ And I loved that series. Wasn't there a new one that came out recently? Anyone played it yet?

Yah its good series. I have played all of them, and enjoyed them. Though I do understand where your coming from. What other JRPG series do you enjoy.

I love the Atelier Series, but have collected tons of other series on my list to someday play through (like Xenosaga, Wild Arms, Artonelico?, Suikoden (when I find a disc without a glitch).  I tend to play a lot of games not in series (like Radiata Stories, Okage, Skies of Arcadia, Rogue Galaxy, and so on) because it is simply easier to pick up and play for the story without being lost (like Kingdom Hearts you needed to know Chain of Memories which was on a different console and all to understand). I have hundreds of games. My plan is to play them in my retirement lol....at least I will be keeping my mind sharp.

 

I must say, while I truly enjoy JRPGs, I absolutely hate thier tendency to spread out titles across every concievable Japanese platform. I refuse to buy a handheld device to continue a story and it is a cheap move on the marketing department.  That is one place where most WRPGs far outclass JRPGs without even trying.

Yah that is a downside of them. Though in a lot of people that are very serious JRPG players already have a lot of the consoles they support. In the case of rechain of memories in was also re-released for the ps2 later on. I do see where your cumming from though it can be annoying. You also gave me a few games to look further into though. :)

I have a ton of consoles, but I simply don't do handhelds.  My eyes are bad enough, with enough strain already.  I have never enjoyed playing on a small screen and likely never will.  I did get a Nintendo DS and played it on occasion when traveling (loved Etrian Odyssey) but even that was too small for my tastes and I never really felt immersed with it.  Still, most will start on a mainstream console like the PlayStation, then the sequel will be on a handheld, then the sequel's sequel will be on another handheld, then the next sequel after that comes back to the PlayStation.  So frustrating.  I remember when Persona 3 came out on the PSP with a female playable protagonist....I was so mad.  Sure I have it on the PS2 but not with a female protagonist.  -_- Which ones were you going to look into?

Ya the Persona portables were not to good with the exception of Persona 4 the golden which in my mind should have been on a console rather then a handheld, but what are you gonna do. I see you point handhelds aren't for everyone, and a lot of people had issues with the 3DS so they made the 2ds which was an improvement but still small.

Xenosaga was a bit of a disappointment for me. I'm still waiting for the next Suikoden game which may come out after half a millennium.

      "Where...am I...?" Before he knows it, Kirito has made a full-dive into an epic, fantasy-like virtual world. With only a murky recollection of what happened right before he logged in, he starts to wander around, searching for clues.

      He comes upon an enormous, pitch dark tree (the Gigas Cedar), where he encounters a boy. "My name is Eugeo. Nice to meet you, Kirito." Although he is supposedly a resident of the virtual world – an NPC – the boy shows the same array of emotions as any human being.

      As Kirito bonds with Eugeo, he continues to search for a way to log out of this world. Meanwhile, he remembers a certain memory deep down within him. He remembers racing through the mountains with Eugeo as a child... A memory that he should not have in the first place.

      And in this memory, he sees someone other than Eugeo, a young blond girl. Her name is Alice. And it is a name that must never be forgotten...

      Having reached professional status in middle school, Rei Kiriyama is one of the few elite in the world of shogi. Due to this, he faces an enormous amount of pressure, both from the shogi community and his adoptive family. Seeking independence from his tense home life, he moves into an apartment in Tokyo. As a 17-year-old living on his own, Rei tends to take poor care of himself, and his reclusive personality ostracizes him from his peers in school and at the shogi hall.
      However, not long after his arrival in Tokyo, Rei meets Akari, Hinata, and Momo Kawamoto, a trio of sisters living with their grandfather who owns a traditional wagashi shop. Akari, the oldest of the three girls, is determined to combat Rei's loneliness and poorly sustained lifestyle with motherly hospitality. The Kawamoto sisters, coping with past tragedies, also share with Rei a unique familial bond that he has lacked for most of his life. As he struggles to maintain himself physically and mentally through his shogi career, Rei must learn how to interact with others and understand his own complex emotions.

      Haruyuki Arita is an overweight, bullied middle schooler who finds solace in playing online games. But his life takes a drastic turn one day, when he finds that all his high scores have been topped by Kuroyukihime, the popular vice president of the student council. She then invites him to the student lounge and introduces him to "Brain Burst," a program which allows the users to accelerate their brain waves to the point where time seems to stop. Brain Burst also functions as an augmented reality fighting game, and in order to get more points to accelerate, users must win duels against other players. However, if a user loses all their points, they will also lose access to Brain Burst forever.

      Kuroyukihime explains that she chose to show Haruyuki the program because she needs his help. She wants to meet the creator of Brain Burst and uncover the reason of why it was created, but that's easier said than done; to do so, she must defeat the "Six Kings of Pure Color," powerful faction leaders within the game, and reach level 10, the highest level attainable. After the girl helps Haruyuki overcome the bullies that torment him, he vows to help her realize her goal, and so begins the duo's fight to reach the top.

      This is a story of a nerdy bookworm girl on her way to school, and yes, that's the entire premise, as she's not getting to school any time soon. Taking her "usual" route to school, it becomes an increasingly unusual adventure, and all the more ridiculous as it carries on. It takes an unpleasant sentiment many can empathize with, the feeling of tardiness, and brings humor to it—making it a hilarious situation to look back upon.
