I only played through it once, but I thought it was great. Jolee Bindo, especially.
I love a good rant when smarter people than me are doing it. I don't know whether you've ever heard of Shamus Young? Sorry to bring up bad memories! If it makes you feel better, I share your pain; the Mass Effect series had more promise than what it ended up as.
Not really. I wasn't very academic when I was a kid, so I just never learned. I think my liked being able to converse privately when I was around, too. Do you know any other languages?
Same here. No matter what they do now, there's still KotoR and BG2. :3
Haha...you do not want to me hear start ranting. I hung around on a fan forum where I was the only one who disliked ME2, for problems with the filler-plot etc, and then ME3 came around...and I don't think I need to say anything more about that. Assuming you've heard about the ending debacle?
Unfortunately, I don't speak any language other than English, despite my mother being Russian. And I do like tactical RPGs...so I'll look out for it, thanks!
One can only hope. I used to really like Bioware. I guess I still do to an extent.
It's not that I've written it off, I'm not a huge fan of shooters. Oh you can't just stop with that! There's a story behind that Mass Effect comment. Grinding is kind of a staple with JRPGs. I think it has gotten better over the years, but kind of still there.
A real classic would be Chrono Trigger. That's going back a few years however. I think a lot of the recent ones are kind of lacking (Unless you read or speak Japanese. A lot of them don't get properly ported anymore.) Valkyria Chronicles was a lot of fun. That was more Tactical RPG however.
Hopefully Bioware will learn their lesson this time.
Ha, a lot of people write it off before playing it, but I have a soft-spot for the Halo series. :3 Oh, Mass Effect I have a rough history with. Let's just say i thought the first game was good. Yeah, I know. D: It's just that JRPGs have this reputation for egregious grinding, too, so I haven't had the enthusiasm to find the better ones...
Can you believe I've never played Halo either? I mean, of course I've heard of it, but never played it. I also heard great things about Dragon Age. I preferred Mass Effect though. :3 Blue Dragon was your first JRPG?! You've missed out on some classics then.
A lot of people were. I'm a fan of Star Wars, too, but I do hear they took down another, more unique Star Wars MMO for it too. /sadface
I actually begun with Halo a few years ago, which is most definitely not an RPG. I think my first was Dragon Age: Origins, which is still great. :3 While my first JRPG was Blue Dragon, which I sucked at. Pokemon is the exception.
Uhm, well not really. I haven't had a ton of time for gaming lately. I did play Star Wars the Old Republic for a while, but then I just kind of lost interest. I'm kind of more into portable gaming and phone stuff now. It's easier to fit in schedule wise, you know?
