Really bland cast of characters, story is trash and gameplay/camera is horrible.

It is real bad

If you want a game with great characters i recomend metal gear solid v the phantom pain the reason to play dark souls is for challenge yourself and is a good rpg like game anyways

It's because of the great plot and their are so many things you can do.The animation is great,some Pokemon's looks really nice and some characters are really sympathic.Also their are many suprising plot twist's.

I'm still pretty happy with the one I've always used. Haven't really seen any I thought seemed better in terms of aesthetics, layout design and comments section in combination. So I don't think I'll be changing anytime soon

And yeah I know; don't think I'll be hitting it before the end of the year (though I'll get a bunch moved from my watching list to my completed list as the Fall season ends of course) but it shouldn't be long thereafter at least. Dunno what I'm going to watch for it though

Honestly I would say One Piece has been consistenly mediocre. I don't think there's been any arc that I utterly hated but I can't think of one I really liked that much either. They're just all very average. As far as characters go... idk, Nami maybe? I don't feel too much about either of them either though. I mostly just really can't stand Luffy; he's just plain annoying

Once you've invested so much time into something it doesn't feel right to just give up on it. But yeah I can't say I really care about it much

Glad to hear you liked Cross. Once you beat the game you unlock New Game + which lets you carry over most of your items and magic, as well as all of your characters. It also gives you a couple of key items that you can use to your benefit. I'd suggest at least playing back up until where Kidd is sick, and then choosing the opposite path of what you chose to get Glenn, as it's a completely different scenario. Only if you have the patience for it, of course.

I plan on getting Sun or Moon at some point, but I'm getting FFXV on release. There's a 5 episode (11 mins. per episode) anime called Brotherhood for FFXV on the Final Fantasy XV youtube channel. It covers the backstories of the main characters. There's also a CG movie (in english) called Kingsglaive that goes into the events that take place away from the party, just before the events of the game. If you're not confident about the dudebro stuff, I suggest at least watching Brotherhood. It really doesn't feel cheesy in my opinion, and it comes off feeling pretty great actually. Of course, I'm an FF-oholic. I actually liked XIII, though I did have the same complaints as everyone else for the most part, but my favorite game of all time is FFVII if you couldn't tell.

I thought it was great, I couldn't think of a better way this twist could have been executed. A lot of persons thought the twist would have been some experiment gone wrong twist or trueman show twist, turns out Isayama came up with a fresh execution. And I'm not surprise.

Well I don't know how much you know about Cross, but if you say that Trigger's gimmick is time travel, then Cross's gimmick is alternate timelines. You could say that Trigger is linear in that everything you find out fits in a pattern, while in Cross, you get to find out different things about your world from different worlds. Let's say "Big event" happens in both worlds A and B, but World A lost all records of it and you've only dealt with the consequences. In world B, society made sure to learn and remember all about it, and so it gives you that opportunity to learn what happened all those years ago. Because of that flip of a coin, you could say, people who were your enemies in World A may now be your friends in World B.

Chrono Cross explores a lot of different characters (there are 45 obtainable characters, but don't stress over that, you can't get them all in one playthrough). A lot of things happen. You could say that Cross probably has an equal amount of unique things to it as Trigger, and yet it's also a completely different game. It also has a very unique battle system where you slot magic (kind of like Materia), but you have to gain magic through attacking, and once you use it, it's used up for the battle. It's a little weird at first but it get's a lot easier to understand after you have more experience with it.

I don't really think opinions are as split on Cross as it seems. It's only because Trigger was the "Legendary SNES RPG" that went down in history, and it really overshadowed it's sequel, especially since PS1 had also birthed it's own "Legendary PS1 RPG" Final Fantasy VII, as well as other huge hits.

Lol of course the music is good. Nobuo Uematsu had a hand in it. Of course unlike many of the Final Fantasy games, he wasn't the sole composer of Chrono Trigger, but the quality of music is represented by him being a part of it at all.

Of course Akira Toriyama did the art for Trigger. Back then the art couldn't be expressed very well so unless you saw the box art or something, you weren't likely to link it to Dragon Ball unless you really paid attention to the character portraits in the menu. Of course he does the art for Dragon Quest too.

Both of these people also collaborated on Blue Dragon, as well, an RPG on the X-Box 360. Although I can't attest to if it's good or not.

Toriyama and Uematsu didn't have a hand in Chrono Cross, but the other composer for Trigger, did. Trigger gets a lot of love, but there are many like myself who prefer Cross.

There's a few people older than me here. The younger users come and go but the oldies seem to stick around.

I found out about Rogue Galaxy last year or so. Someone on here actually told me about it. I booted up an emulator, but unfortunately experienced technical difficulties. When it came onto PS4 I decided to just get it through that, but I never manged to actually get around to buying it. I had just gotten off of the jungle planet, so I'll have to see what the game is like after that. The desert planet where you start was pretty entertaining, but the jungle planet wasn't so fascinating.

If you've only played FFX and FFXII, then you should really give Persona 4 a shot, as well as Tales of Abyss, Star Ocean Till the end of Time, as well as Xenosaga. The PS2 was an RPG machine. Really the only system that compares to it is the PS1. Hopefully we'll start seeing an influx on the PS4 though.

One of my favourite, not #1 favourite though. I like him because he is a charismatic character, and he's intelligent but at the same time a bit goofy. I like those type of characters generally.

I gave the anime a 7/10 simple because I really like the phantom troupe arc, the other arcs were above average to below average "chinera ant arc"

The manga version is a 6/10, the current arc is extremely boring and full of pointless dialogue. Its a pretty overrated series and I prefer naruto over it.
HaXXspetten Jul 25, 2016 12:52 PM
Well that's kind of the point. He's supposed to represent the ugliness of what ordinary human beings can actually be like in desperate situations. Compared to some OP Gary Stu protagonist facerolling everything or at least being seemingly unaffected by all the stress you'd expect him to be in, I vastly prefer this. It gives it a much more psychological view on it

And yeah that was obviously Puck (you could see the ear ring on the monster as well). I also heard episode 18 is supposedly some game changer including a title drop according to WN readers so that should be interesting
