After failing to top the charts in it’s debut month of March in North America, fans of the Sega/Tri-Ace collaboration, Resonance of Fate, may be curious to know just how well the game did over all.
Any RPG fan should really pick this game up. It's a damn shame that it's not getting the attention that it deserves.
Truly this game is crazy, loving this [email protected] game, A true RPG fan should have this in their collection.
I agree, love this game. While it doesn't have the ridiculous production values FFXIII has, in my opinion its much more fresh and entertaining.
I stop playing FFXIII to play this game,base on fun factor this is my second best RPG this gen after Valkyria Chronicles.
to play WKC, WKC>FFXIII and i've been meaning to pick up RoF, i'd pick it up june, but i'm getting another TV, so maybe in July if i get WKC plat HA jk impossible
I have not gotten the chance to play this yet. I am very interested in it however. I won't have the cash to pick it up until early July but once I do I will be picking it up. I do have to agree the timing for it's release was poor and they should have probably held it back until July or August just to give it a better chance to sell as the flood of games has slowed down.
why did they block my post what did i say that was bad? i asked if the game was any good and if it was to japanese like ff13 how is that offensive?
It's just another JRPG that doesn't appeal to the western market and it shows in the reviews.
250K on both consoles would be the best hoped for I should think. though I'd think they'd report it if it sold that.
I have this game. I think it's truly a great game.
Hey SEGA you know they guy that put this game up for release at the same time as FF13 and GOW you should fire him. And hire a medium sized potted plant.
Yeah they released Rof and Yakuza 3 to a really crowded schedule
Sure I'd proabbly do something stupid like recommend the Neptune game for Western release, make Valkyria Chronicles 3 a naval or air title on the PS3, but at least I'd have a week's worth of a six figured annual salary...
I would add Shenmue 3 to that list as well. Also i really think Sega should start releasing games in the Summer instead. It's a perfect period, not a lot of games are coming out then so people want a good game and they are providing it when very few other publishers do.
I would have picked it up if I didn't have 6 rpgs sitting here unopened. It looks pretty fun.
Hey guys im fiending a good rpg ive been playing ffx over and over again,is this a title worth my $60?Is there Trophy support,towns and side quests?
I didnt like it think theres better rpg's around. While it has some great ideas some parts of it are really bad. Story, Graphics, and tons of loading screens every few steps seems like another load. Also thought it was challenging but in a cheap way not a good way. Those who deny are full of it this game has plenty of cheap tactics and bosses. 7/10
Well it is a JRPG and I am fiending a JRPG not a WRPG so Ill give it a go,one more question hows the leveling system?
you have to persevere a bit with it i do think its bad that on 1 of the 1st chapters i was lv 8 fighting a level 28 boss n it can b rly frustrating when you've nearly won a battle n then somehow get knocked into 'critical condition' (that's the cheapest thing in difficulty)at the last second and lose. some bosses take some planning n do have some cheap tricks n the enemies will go for your weakest character to try to beat you quick thats annoying but so brilliant when you kick there asses. My biggest gripe with the game is how slow it gets into the story took me over 16 hours before i got an explanation to what the hell happenend at the intro still great game imo
You level up though the use of your HandGuns, MachineGuns, and Grenades. For example HG lvl=12+MG lvl=7+Grenades lvl=10 your total lvl will be 29. When you lvl up, the weapon that you are using will lvl up and you will sometimes get a new skill for that weapon, and your HP and Equipment weight will go up also.
I brought it and I liked it. It's a little different than the RPG's I'm used to playing but it is not a bad game at all. All you should do is give it a chance buy renting it first. Who knows? You might want to buy it after playing it for awhile.
It is very similar to Valkyrie profile 2 but in 3d. the battle system too.
Well probably pick this up this month [along with Star Ocean] since it is a rather dry month anyway [ at least for me]
Oh well it couldnt be too bad. In our Gamestop we sold out of the 8 copies on PS3 and 5 copies on the 360 in March and haven't had it back in since. Red Steel 2 sold 2 copies since it came out. Thats right, the sequel to a Wii game that every single person who got a Wii in 2006 owned sold 2 bloody copies to date. So did Resonance of Fate sell well, course it bloody did, pointless article. PS please stop wasting such time and effort on Wii games, those crappy sports multi pack games are fine but not any game made by more then 10 people, its embarassing i.e Dead Space Extraction, hasnt sold the 1 copy that came into the shop yet.
I remember dl'ing the Japanese demo on the PSN, it was insane to figure out what to do especially since I don't read or speak japanese, but after about 10 minutes of trial and error I thought the game felt solid and I would get it. Then Sega in their brilliance put it out same time as GOW3 and FF13 and BFBC:2 I believe, and unfortunately even with liking the game had to pass it up for the other big names. Anyway the point is Sega suxs ass at marketing and even though I will pick this up next month many persons would have missed out on a great game because of a bad release date.
Is funny because I did the same,I don't understand how just like me you learn the game in Japanese in about 10 minutes,but a lot or reviewers claim the fighting mechanics is difficult.
Hot game, tho not enough story to me. It seem more like they built it like a box ex. There is alot it seems like it's missing
On my second playthrough, I'm at lvl 160 my hp is 11,000. Awesome game
Help me this or alpha protocol.
this it makes ffxiii a run for its hype/money/name
I love Sonic but....is it me or does Sega SUCK ass these days? lol
