I think that was always the thing with M&M - they were always fun to romp around in (as Carnifex says). Some of the other series were perhaps technically deeper, or more complex world simulations,…

I agree with Drithius, although I'd have preferred a bit more on the stuff the author mentions at the end (ie. stuff we *wouldn't* have seen as PC M&M fans). I guess I'm always looking for something…

Bethesda's Elder Scrolls series all take place in the same world (Tamriel) at different points in time, and in…

Trails of Cold Steel is available on PS3 (and at discount now due to Big In Japan sale). I've been playing that version recently, and whilst graphically its a little basic, it still looks great, and…

Good call on Last Remnant, Goraidh, but that's one that is definately an aquired taste and falls into the "huge fun if you know where to look". You kind of need to play with a walkthrough or wiki to…

Dragon's Dogma is definately the most "western" of the games I mentioned. It is basically a Skyrim-type game in third person with a party through a Japanese lens.

Essentially, it looks like a…

Whilst the Ys games are fun, they are more "arcade-y" than other JRPGs out there. The Ys 1/2 games are "unique" with their bumper-car combat, but the later entries are more like traditional action…

Have they made any progress in terms of making it feel like a story-game (ie. some form of plot and story progression), or is it still a procedural roguelike with a party and interesting combat?

@GothicGothiness Yes, of course, didn't you know? It's that "music" they listen to (backwards) and those evil games they play - you know, I think they call them "games of playing role" or some such?…

Thanks for the link to the review - can be hard to find press coverage of these kind of titles. However, the review was pretty awful - "I don't like dungeon crawlers and this is a dungeon…

This looks interesting, but what is it with indie adventure developers that they seem obsessed with super-low-res art. You have to think that the master artwork was created in high res to achieve…

Having played the Xbox One version, I can say that it is a nice grid-based dungeon crawler with a big debt to the Wizardry series, particular the early ones, and their later Japanese offspring (there…

I still can't understand how they'd bank an entire franchise on an RPG with four almost identikit male party members. I'm a fan of the series, but even after watching trailers and the FF15…

Well, the initial Steam reviews seem to think they've done a nice job this time round, complete with point'n'click movement and 1080p resolutions. Even talk of (some) remastered assets. Sure, a…

I think it may depend on the scope of what they're making. If this is "three games" that cover the content of the PS1 original with little new beyond the graphics, I think fans will justifiably feel…

As a party-based-game lover with a username very close to Irian's (probably pronounced the same), I'd just like to distance myself from those comments!

Having grown up on MM1/2 etc, party building…

To me, this is a feature that sounds brilliant on paper, but sucks for gameplay reasons - quite simply, it's no fun not being able to find someone you need for a quest or learning.

I love the…

I haven't played FF9 (probably the only one I haven't) but often there are more systems in play than just levelling. Sure, you need XP to level and battle bosses, but often magic power and other…

Gotta say Bloodborne left me rather cold. I played it for a week or two, but it wasn't for me. Xenoblade Chronicles, however, is worth owning a WiiU for. Marvellous game, esp once you get to grips…

Is this a "start over from the beginning" upgrade or will it import existing savegames? I played the old version quite a bit, but the difficulty seemed to ratchet up quite high during the middle…

IIRC Wiz8 had a number of graphics drivers - Glide, D3D, OGL and maybe even software! As such, this only updates the 3DFX Glide version.

At the time, there may have been reasons for picking that…

I should add that I *really* enjoyed Dragon Quest 8, and played a number of other DQ games (finished DQ4, but not 5 or 7, and never got round to starting 9). I don't care for musou games, and so…

Having played this on PS4, it has enough RPG/Dragon Quest elements to appeal despite the "musou" Dynysty-warriors fighting system. I enjoyed it quite a lot, but I agree that the current pricing is…

Gah, almost every new game these days kills my interest with "roguelike", "randomization", "procedurally generated", "permadeath" etc. I know it appeals to a certain audience, but the older I get,…
