JRPG general discussion

Hmm let's see how a thread like this works.

Anyway for the first post I'd like to let people know that ATB podcast with its host Kat Bailey is back on 1up. The first episode might be Western RPG focused but the podcast is well worth a listen.

Can't really think of much. Ys Origins is coming to Steam this year which will be great. I'm hoping the second and third Legend of Heroes games will make it to Steam as well.

Really want to see what Atlus are up to at E3. Hoping Eternal Punishment gets a PSP release. I'll be picking up Growlanser 4 and Gungnir. Etrian Odyssey 4 is going to be superb.

I'm hoping Tales of Xillia makes it to the west and will be picking up Tales of Graces F soon.

Going to have to pick up Ni No Kuni, it looks amazing.

Fire Emblem, Bravely Default, Beyond the Labyrinth and Rocket Slime 3 are a few I hope make it to the West.

Oh and the Ys 4 remake on Vita will be the game that makes me pick up a Vita.

Not too much, (Thank God I have no money). The only ones on my radar are Tales of Graces F and Devil Survivor Overclocked.

I'm planning on purchasing a PS2 at some point to get playing the persona series it's been on my to do list for a long time. I don't play much in the summer so I'll probably keep an eye on adverts from around sept

1-3 are on the PSP in case you didn't know. Probably easier to track down than the original PS1 games.

Only part 1 of Persona 2 is on PSP and 1 and 2 are quite different beasts from Persona 3 and 4. They're very much old school dungeon crawlers like the traditional Shin Megami Tensei games.

Let us know if these psp games are good, would be interested in picking one up. Saw trailer for gungnir recently and it looked good!

What's this Ys remake? Is that just you hoping for it, or has it been leaked/announced?

I probably won't get around to them for a long time as usual put if I do I'll post my thoughts.

Also the Ys 4 remake is definitely coming and XSeed will be publishing in America. If it's half as god as Oath in Felghana and Ys Seven I'll buy a Vita for it.

I have so many PS1 era JRPGs to catch up onto.

Any recommendations from that era? I finished Suikoden 2 and Legend of Dragoon and the PS1 Final Fantasy games.

Grandia is amazing, definitely give that a go.

Other than that Chrono Cross and Xenogears are alright I suppose. If you've not played FF Tactics then you really should.

I really enjoyed Vagrant Story although it's a bit obtuse. Parasite Eve would be another good one to try.

Breath of Fire 3 and 4 are excellent.

I loved Front Mission 3.
