  1. Hey guys and gals James here aka Wade D McGinnis! This week has been crowded with reviews and releases. At this point I am pretty sure I may get a temporary ban due to the amount of threads I have made this week. If that does not happen then I have a new review, I am Setsuna. This JRPG hearkens back to the golden era of JPRGs. Whether it does that well, check out the video and let me know your thoughts in the comments!
  2. This is my first post, I did a search and couldn't find anything new on Final Fantasy XV Anyone watch the FFXV event last night? FF XV is going to be released on Sept 30th. They're also going to have a Movie this year and have already released the first episode of their new Anime All of this has to do with the game. The demo is out right now as well Here is the full event https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4AptAyPIL88 http://kotaku.com/all-this-weeks-big-final-fantasy-xv-news-1768179950 Final Fantasy XV - Platinum Demo Available on Xbox One & PS4 - FREE - Slickdeals.net I'm hoping Angry Joe tries out the demo that just came out and tries the full game on Sept 30th. I don't think I've ever seen him review a JRPG game.
  3. For the JRPG fans among us, what do you think of Tales of Berseria? I've recently gotten into the Tales of series myself and am enjoying them so far. Is it just me or do the graphics look a little lower quality than before? Still, it looks awesome and it seemed to only show case to potential party characters at the moment. The hand looks pretty cool too. Also, good news for PC players.
  4. So JRPGs have been around for along time, ever since the NES days as far as I know, such as Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest, (or Dragon Warrior on NES) and for those that play them what's your favorite, and those that are reading this, the kind of JRPGs I'm talking about are the turn-based combat ones such as Final Fantasy.
  5. Mainstream coverage of Japanese role playing games is not good, so I decided I would review a few each year. I have one for late last year already up:
  6. There is a petition going on for the Xenosaga Trilogy Reboot going on right now. I remembered those days when I turn on my PS2 and played Xenosaga series for 100 of hours. It is a series that you could sink 80+ hours of gameplay per episode. If this series is going to be remastered, then I'm going to support it! Please check this out if you are interested in this! (And if Bandai Namco really make this happened, then maybe they'll do .hack//G.U. trilogy remastered too? maybe? perhaps?)

  7. Will anybody be buying this game? It looks amazing! (http://www.gamestop.com/ps3/games/ar-nosurge-ode-to-an-unborn-star/115774)
  8. This is a topic to discuss, and share some of our favorite JRPG, and visual novel titles across all platforms. Some of my favorites are Persona 4, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc, Final Fantasy series, Agarest: Generations of War, The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky, and so on. Reply with some of your favorites, and explain why you love them so much!
  9. Hey guys, I hope this will not be considered spam but I was one of the 1st people to join Angry Joe forum. So if this is considered spam please let me know. This is a Indie RPG that I have been developing for some time. Working on this game let me bring my love for comics and video games together. My wife and I dream of making games professionally now and in the future. We are inspired by a lot of what youtubers like Joe say about games regarding their length and playability. Although we are using a lot of pixel art for the main over-world. We feel that it is of the highest quality and we strive for originality. My name is Tyrell and I am working on a familiar, yet unique retro styled JRPG called Celestial Tear: Demon's Revenge for PC. It is a story driven epic full of mystery and discovery. The gameplay is a harmonious mixture inspired by the likes of Suikoden 2, Wild Arms 2, and Final Fantasy 7. You play as a diverse cast of 12 people from all different types of backgrounds. Traverse across the vast planet of Hasphal and delve deep into the core of the world's history, making discoveries that can change how people view the universe. Battle colossal and creative creatures in a battle system using your environment to your advantage. Upgrade your weapon by inserting enhancements and enchantments into their slots. No skill is useless as they level up with use and skill points. We just recently launched a Kickstarter. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects...?ref=discovery Any comments and critique are welcomed and appreciated. Give it a shot guys and let me know what you think.
  10. Ni No Kuni! Ni No Kuni! NI No KUNI! NI NO KUNI! NINOKUNI! NINOKUNI! NASDLKA! Ok, ok, sorry about that it's just after I recently got my hands on Ni No Kuni I...just could not get it out of my head it is a REALLY good game, with interesting characters, music, gameplay, graphics, and story. Story: You play as a boy named Oliver who's mother dies, right in front of him too! So, he meets a fairy called Mr. Drippy who tells Oliver that there me a chance to bring his mother back if he goes to Drippy's world to save it from Shadar the Dark Djin; who has the power to take a part of a person's heart and make them unable to feel that certain emotion. The story is great with its light-hearted feel and even a little bit of dark stuff mixed in as you travel the world and meet new friends who help you with their own attacks, it just keeps you guessing on what's going to happen and even has a HUGE plot twist near the end that will just make your jaw hit the floor. (and I swear if anyone who has played this game tells ANYONE the twist I will find you and fight you on the street!) The only problem is that after Shadar you met the true villain "The White Witch" who orders Shadar around, sadly she's a weak character in my opinion her backstory and motive feels over rushed while Shadar is my favorite character in the game, his backstory is rushed too but because the fact we see more of Shadar then the white Witch it didn't really bother me, he even has a redeeming moment at the end that made me feel sooo sorry for the guy. And that's another thing the game does right it has great characters that Oliver has to help. There may be some you don't like but most of them are enjoyable. Music: The soundtrack in this game is fantastic! Each music fits the mood and makes some badass moments awesome. But what do you expect when the music is composed by JOE HISAISHI! FUCK YEA!!! Graphics: Level 5, the makers of Dark Cloud and White Knight chronicles, have teamed up Studio Ghibli to help with the graphics, and it looks awesome. Some of the cut scenes have the style of animation that we've come to love from Ghibli. Gameplay: The gameplay is a unique combination and its really fun, having a 3D battleground where you choose to either cast a spell or attack and you can even switch between allies while their fighting and switch up your stratizies. It even has a Pokémon feel with creatures you captured call familiars that you can use for more physical attacks. The game took me about 40 hours to complete the main story AND that's not counting the TONS of side quest and bounties, though I could never figure out how to follow the side quests so I could know where to go to complete them but they appear on the world map so it's not a big deal. Verdict: The final verdict for Ni No Kuni is a 10/10 It's not a perfect game it's got it's problems and a slightly disappointing ending but I can't deny how much fun I had, and when I do die I know that's because I may not have good equipment or my level may not be high enough. If your a fan of RPGs and Studio Ghibli then this is a must buy. But I'm not kidding don't spoil the big twist in the game the "truth."
  11. "Ys Origin is a Japanese action role-playing game developed and published by Nihon Falcom for Microsoft Windows in 2006." (Wikipedia, November 2013) I've played this RPG for 45 hours on the hardest of the 5 difficulties (nightmare, hard, normal, easy, very easy) with "Hugo" (1 of 3 characters) and completed it by level 52. I found the story to be a run-of-the-mill "good guy wants power, turns evil temporarily, and repents through the power of friendship/love". I'm generally not the type of guy to delve into, and enjoy, the story of a game very much anyways, so I didn't mind it. In fact, considering that I look for "great gameplay" in games, and what type of gameplay I'll tend to go for, I would practically expect a story to be "the usual" in a game (not to say I haven't enjoyed original stories). I don't know how the story goes with the other 2 characters, since I haven't played them yet. This game, played with a top-down camera angle, plays kinda like a shooter when Hugo is the chosen character, as his attacks revolve around shooting magic missiles straight ahead of him. After a quick test run, the other 2 characters appear to revolve around close-range melee combat. On the hardest difficulty level, the bosses offer such a challenge that you'll find yourself grinding a lot, just to gain that extra level or two and be able to defeat the boss at all (and even then, your battle strategy better be near perfect). This game has some simple puzzle-solving, if you can even call it that. You'll find yourself having to press buttons, defeat certain enemies, obtain and use items/skills, and so on. I did enjoy the challenging gameplay, but it would get frustrating at times with bosses, and also 1 time with a certain enemy that can practically insta-kill you (but that you'll still have to deal with). The only thing to do there is keep looking around for equipment and the like, and grind in special spots to gain levels. If you want to know how nice the graphics look, just "You-Google-Tube" some gameplay footage on the game. And while you're at it, check out the soundtrack for it as well. It's pretty awesome. As of this post, the game is $19.99 USD on Steam and I'd say it's worth the price if you love to spend many hours on a challenging "battle-grind" RPG. If it turns-out that you love the game, then you may also love "Ys: The Oath in Felghana", which follows a similar gaming style. You may want to avoid Ys I & II though, which has your main attack revolve around ramming into enemies (like in Hydlide), which ruins any sense of "gameplay" (at least in my opinion). Feel free to give your own thoughts on the game or the game series.
  12. Agarest: Generations of War is the newest JRPG on Steam that isn't Americanized. Though the game itself is old for the console, it's new for the PC, and there seems to be more coming! Ghostlight is the publisher and developer for this PC adaptation of the Xbox version. They seem to be listening to JRPG fans as they have been releasing content on a regular bases with FREE DLC! There is a ton of DLC ranging from $1 - $7 but they don't ruin the game. The contents of the DLC's are points and items of varying levels such as Generation 5 weapons and accessories. I like JRPG's and hope to see more of the content on Steam because I'm not much of a console person and more user friendly.
