How about a JRPG thread?
What JRPG are you playing? Which JRPG is your favorite?
I'm playing Bravely Default. It's pretty good. I wanted to play FFV but then I saw that this was out so I had a go. It's not that cool that the rebuilding town part of the game is a tap and wait, although I did get dope gloves/spears/axes from them. Sleep points are fucking stupid and fuck that Bravely Second nonsense, I'm not stopping the battle just so I can win, that's not fair
Been playing Lightning Returns but I usually like to juggle two games at once. Thinking about picking a Tales game that I can emulate. But I also don't really feel like playing anything lately.
I've been playing Ni No Kuni, its one of the best JRPGs I've seen visually though game play wise its average and the story is far from Ghibli.
Also I need to go back to my Tales of the Abyss save, it gets a bit tedious at times so I've had it on hold for a while. Still I like the characters enough, I might go play Tales of Symphonia after that.
Is there any Legend of Mana bros here?
I'm doing a Summon Night run in preparation for 6 coming out in march and doing another playthrough Metal Max 3
I guess my favorite is Metal Max 2 Reloaded
And damn SN is comfy
in 2013 i bought Persona 3 FES used for 12 € and played it for maybe 2 hours until i had no idea what to do anymore.
game is now worth 80 € used, and i am happy that i bought it.
oh and in P4G i got stuck when you are supposed to find out more about Rise i think. i just never found the right NPC to talk to so i stopped playing.
On topic i ordered Parasite Eve 2 and will probably play that despite never having played the first one.
Oh hey. You're the guy from last time.
Good to see you went though with it.
>there will never be another FFT
They're my favorite JRPGs of all time, if they even count.
What a fucking great game, hit me in the feels so much. The whole concept for all the games was fantastic, though 2 was the best in the series. Was everything I could have wanted from a JRPG
The change was the battle system really, you had an attack phase and a defense phase. You had a couple seconds to get as many attacks in, which would affect your harmonics and such. Defense phase had a mario rpg feel to it where you had to time your button presses to decrease or negate completely damage to your singers. Also capturing all the IPD's was fun. # was the only one I didn't care for and it was really the battle music that did it. 1,2 and Ar no surge had great music but 3 was just a bunch of j-pop garbage and such.
I've never played a JRPG before. I want to give the genre a shot but I'd rather play something current-gen if possible, rather than emulate something older. What should I play? Bonus points if I can get something for my poor neglected Vita.
Not who you're talking to, but it really only makes the beginning easy. By the middle, you're rolling with stuff as good if not better.
Yuna was required for me beating Caius. That fight was bullshit.
For beginners, Pokemon and the Mario RPGs are good starts. Though, those aren't on Vita, obviously.
I can recommend Persona 4 Golden as far as Vita goes, though. I'm not sure if it's a good entry to the genre but it's still a fantastic game.
Gonna start Nier as soon as it comes in the mail
can someone give me a rundown of why /jrpg/ general is dead
Drought of the genre brought too much shitposting, people were bored with not much to talk about and shitposted to kill their own boredom.
Most big franchises/series got their own general which made people even more bored with not much to discuss there
Trips were part of the issue, people thought the general was just better off without existing
tl;dr It had cancer. It needed to die.
Also every large new release has basically gotten its own general. So the only thing to talk about were older games which a good amount of people fucked off to /vr/
There was the one from /m/ that was especially awful but its been so long I cant remember the fags name
Well I can understand that at least. It's not very suited to beginners. Well if you are one.
Now here's where I ask "how come?" It's a pretty alright game to play.
Yeah, SJ was my first SMT game. I liked some of the ideas behind it, because it became way too repetitive. As for SMRPG, the combat just wasn't all that fun. I would like to give it another try though.
I forgot about the Mario RPGs. I played Thousand Year Door if that counts, but it was very simple.
I guess by wanting a "first JRPG" I don't necessarily mean a simple RPG, I'm fine with complexity. I just want one that can be beginner friendly and doesn't assume that I already know everything there is to know about playing JRPGs right off the bat.
I dunno, maybe I'm getting worried over nothing but some genres are just hard to get into in general, fighting games for example.
A bit I guess.
I hardly ever get interested by Digmon games. And it's been sometime since I actually played one so yeah.
No I totally get it. Fighting games took me a while to figure out.
If you need a series to try, I suppose Final Fantasy is a safe bet. Most of the games play very differently so there's bound to be at least one you'd like.
Not him but
I had to get the anniversary edition for the vita
I fucking hate how they didn't have the PS4 version for that edition
Currently playing through Xenoblade Chronicles X. Finished the main story so now I'm clearing out the sidequests.
My favorite JRPG is
Yeah, BD's system is a ton of fun to mess around with. It's a shame about chapters 5-7 though. Bravely Second is really just a desperate move if things get impossibly dire and you don't want to die and try again.
>no kuroboshi art, shitty copycat
>new setting when there's still more to explore in the original worlds
It very well could.
I understand that they are throwing all characters together cause it's an anniversary title, but it could as well just contradict and shit on everything established.
At least I can hope that the final boss and story don't revolve around Colorless Faction again.
I remember I was worried about 3D models over illustrations
But that went away when I played Cyber Sleuth, with some scenes really paying off using 3D models over illustrations.
It was much more versatile, also same creators which seeing how good CS was I guess it has some potential
Only 3 new characters. Old get portraits of varying quality from the copycat. No new Kuroboshi designs for SN is pure suffering.
I guess he couldn't be bothered to draw new portraits so that's why there's 3D models - so the art styles wouldn't clash.
yeah, they do look better than I expected. I'm slowly getting used to them.
Still, 3D models (or copycat art) in ED stills would be unforgivable.
dude where did you get this copycat info anyway
literally never seen this info before all we know its that he's the one drawing the designs again which is great seeing how bad it could've gone (see new langrisser)
I don't know about what you're talking about anon. Langisser concluded peacefully with the fifth game.
It most certainly didn't get some short lived cash grab on the Dreamcast. And certainly not some barebones attempt on 3DS no sir..
Playing XCX, it's amazing for the exploration.
Favorite JRPG is Nocturne.
yeah, so no problems here.
i really don't see much of a difference between this game's designs and previous ones, so I'm good in that area
and he's involved, that's all we need really
support the series, hope for the best and be thankful it didn't end up like langrisser did
at least, it doesn't seem like it
