this reminds me of luminous Arc on nintendo DS which is good.

Yep, and the JRPGs keep coming. It seems the RPG drought is coming to an end.

Its the only JRPG - on consoles anyway - that features banana eating and milk spillage.

TheColbertinator2615d ago

The banana picture is hilarious

II Necroplasm II2614d ago

What banana picture?? I don't see it in the title.

This may sound cross but I am really tired of SRPG's using sprites that were from the PS1 era. I know that some companies are not able to finacially do anything about it. Just making the sprites larger and more detailed would be a nice start.

Valkeryia Chronicals being the exception this generation...and a exceptional exception at that.

I agree these smaller jrpg houses really need to invest in HD spirits. Putting HD portraits over reclycled low res spirits really isn't going to fly any more. If it was a first gen ps3 game I might overlook it. But over 2 years into the ps3 life cycle this is crap. I'm not going to spend $50 on a PS2 game with HD portraits. If they really can't afford it put it on PSN as a cheap downloadable title like Konami is doing with Vandal Hearts.

Agreed, Valkyria Chronicles is a unique SRPG. It's nice to see that sales of Valkyria Chronicles has picked up again (as my friends from EB games have told me). The new DLC will be sweet (^_^).

It should Vanilla (murasama or Odin sphere) or ar tornelico level at least .

Not quite sure if this game should be compared with VC. It looks like very standard Disgaea fare. VC, on the other hand, is an amazing mix up of tactical, third person shooter, rpg elements. VC is just a masterpiece, a class on is own.

That said, if you are into Tactical-rpg you should know gameplay is what really matters. This genre is very niche, devs need to keep costs down in order to get a return.

Godmars2902614d ago

I agree, but its not really their fault. The thing people keep forgetting is that JRPGs in the PS1/PS2 eras were cheap to make. Now that Sony's moved onto HD, its become expensive in time, money and resources. Things small dev houses never had much of, so its taking them a while to get up to speed while they wait for someone - Square - to set the standard bar so they can reach some acceptable level.

And yes, I let MS out of my statement because while they are looking at JRPGs, they're not looking for quality. That's why games that aren't SO4 or ToV, that Zoids SRPG or WWII zombie/warewolf title, look like utter sh*t.
