lolol. First Cross Edge bombs.

Then White Flop Chronicles.

3D Dot Heroes gets a 6 from Teletext and 7 from Eurogamer.

Now this. PS3 JRPGs aren't looking too good.

blitz06232868d ago

So what 360 JRPGs are good? Infinite Undiscovery? Last Remnant? SO4: The Last Hope? Lost Odyssey? Hmm? You say something? No good 360 JRPGs either? Thought so.

Oh yeah, you have Tales of Vesperia. Oh wait...

Light Yagami2868d ago

None of 360 RPGs have gotten a 5.1 from IGN or 3.5...lol

blitz06232868d ago

So you base everything from IGN or Gamespot reviews? Honestly, that's really sad. I bet you haven't played any of those mentioned RPGs anyway. I have WKC and am enjoying it right now. It may have gotten a 5.1 from IGN but that didn't stop me from buying and enjoying it. I'm not like you who only buys games who gets 8-10s from IGN.

How sad.

Of course he does. Creating your own opinion of anything based on somebody else's opinion, rather than actual experience is a sign of weakness. He probably can't do most things on his own. With that said, he's most likely an underage user. Just leave him alone, he probably has nothing to do and this site is his only form of entertainment.

For anybody weak-minded enough to feel offended by him...Demon's Souls and Valkyria Chronicles were rated pretty high and Tales of Vesperia on the 360 is practically half of a game. It'll most likely get a US release this Summer for the PS3. There's also Versus XIII to look forward to =D

The game was targeted to western audience. Right there and then, it flops.

Dragun6192868d ago

Most NIS games are pretty good, but sometimes most of the their titles require a certain taste to enjoy. But I didn't know that this game was targeted for the west and that it sold only 3300 copies in its first week in japan :( Good thing its only $40 on Amazon, Can't wait to see Ryan Clements on IGN to review this game, lol.

Well, I hope Nippon Ichi next title will be Disgaea 4.

ClownBelt2868d ago

My very first game for my PS3 was Disgaea 3. In fact, it was one of the reasons why I bought PS3 over the 360. Nippon Ichi needs to stick with that kind of games. We need more SJRPG.

vhero2868d ago

Soon as I saw it I thought oooh an RPG by NI I will probably get then I saw in game video and thought NOPE definitely NOT getting. You can tell its terrible just by looking at it.

Bodyboarder_VGamer2868d ago

After WKC I don't believe in reviewers.

Cold 20002868d ago

Yeah, EVERYBODY is wrong except for the couple of WKC lovers out there. WKC was average in 2008 and sucks in 2010.

Unicron2868d ago

Yes, because a reviewer's opinion is ALWAYS RIGHT. ;-)

Cold 20002868d ago

When 100 reviews go in pretty much the same direction, good or bad, you can safely assume that the game is what the reviews are making it out to be.

You got to stop with all the "reviews dont count" nonsense. I'm not talking about just taking into account one review, I'm talking about when a game has 20+ or whatever reviews all saying the same thing, either good or bad game.

paradigmfellow2868d ago

I love RPGs, especially JRPGs, I buy them even if they "suck" to other people's standards; I collect them and I support the developers.

Natsu X FairyTail2868d ago

what a coincidence lol your avatar and mines match.

on topic: last rebelion looks like a ps2 game. the japanese RPGs standards need to upgrade because this isnt a good look.

Cold 20002868d ago (Edited 2868d ago )

I love JRPG's too, my avatar is from my favourite game ever, nothing has ever come close. But that doesnt mean I'll buy any JRPG. I didnt do that back in the PS1 and PS2 era and won't be doing that this gen.

I'll rather save my money for FF13, though it probably isnt the best FF it sure will be better than WKC and Last Rebellion.

Unicron2868d ago (Edited 2868d ago )

"You got to stop with all the "reviews dont count" nonsense"

Reviews do count somewhat. They are a good way to INFORM yourself of a purchase via the opinions of another. But people today treat them as law, that's what disappoints me.

Review SCORES, however, don't count for sh1t. Believing arbitrary numbers matter is the real nonsense here. Unless you really can tell me the difference between a 9.5 and a 9.6? I'm sure you've seen Sessler's rant about Meta, and I really really have to agree with him.

Now do have a good weekend sir =)

Rocket Sauce2868d ago

Looks Japanese as hell to me. How was this made with the west in mind?

Chris3992868d ago (Edited 2868d ago )

That's $20-30 less than any other retail release. I will buy it because it's a JRPG, but also on account of the price - something that we as consumers should support is budget games.

It's from the development team behind Blade Dancer and Dragoneer's Aria for the PSP. Those are fun titles, but hardly AAA. I wasn't expecting it to be the next, epic JRPG. Just something to tide me over till Ar Tonelico or - for the love of God already - a Lost Odyssey sequel, a Legend of Dragoon remake or a Wild Arms PS3.

And for the WKC haters, at least you may have a new JRPG (that you would have never touched in a million years) to flog your tired opinions on.

That being said, FFXIII, the self-proclaimed JRPG of JRPGs this gen is getting 7-9s across the board. The only thing "AAA" means these days is the amount of money budgeted for the title and the accompanying tsunami of hype and marketing behind it. A 'high' score does not necessarily translate into quality.

I don't know about you, but I play games that I enjoy. I don't need someone (a reviewer) telling me what IS enjoyable. As a 31 year old man, I can make those sorts of decisions myself.

Edit: Unicron, the whole process of reviewing games is flawed. If people had to actually READ the content of a review without skipping to the arbitrary number assigned at the end, we would have a much more sensible landscape for debating the merits and flaws of a particular title.

For the record, IGN's "not an aggregate" mathematics are laughable - why bother rating individual elements of the game then, when you just throw that information out the window? (P.S. I was merely expounding upon what you had said regarding review scores, the "disagrees" weren't from me! :P)

badz1492868d ago

what the hell does they thinking?

GameGambits2868d ago

Cold 2000 I dare you to at least rent White Knight Chronicles and spend 30+ hours in it. You'll see why us "few" WKC players are being defensive of the title. The game deserves 8/10 across the board, and I dare anyone who has played it 30+hours to think otherwise really.

If you like JRPGs you'll have a blast with WKC.

Look at how over inflated a game like Fable 2's scores were...if any game this generation deserved 5/10's in the RPG department it was Fable 2. No story, broken co op, horrible mini games that were ALL hit A, no difficulty, terrible costume design, very few weapon choices, dumbest morality system ever, and 12 hours long to score 900+G in.

Get with the program people. If you like RPGs, have a PS3, and even LOOKED at WKC as something you wanted to play, but are now edgy cuz of the dumb reviews----RENT IT! You can't tell me paying 5-10 bucks would be a huge dip in your wallet to see what the game is all about in your opinion.

As for Last Rebellion...looks meh. I'll wait for some uploaded youtube videos of people who get it to see if I'll rent it or not.

Next buy RPG for me is Resonance of Fate! :D

then I saw in-game footage...could/should have been a PS1 game.

If this was targeted at Westerners, it seriously - seriously - needed to have better animations. The combat engine looks like an utter joke.

And yes, I'm a "PS3 fanboy" who's now wondering how many phantom disagrees or open accusations of going over to the other side I'm about to get.

This should have bee a turn based attempt at Blade and Soul w/hyper-kentic kung-fu uber attacks mixed with magic, not the stuttering, teleporting with no rhyme or reason mess it looks like.
