My PC's DVD drive is messed up and I've been wondering if I should buy the disc version of Puzzle Quest with online or just download it off Amazon without the online so I don't have to fumble with the disc problems? Has anyone regretted downloading a game from Amazon?

I can`t speak for amazon, but if you can wait for Christmas or possibly the American Thanksgiving, the game will most likely be on sale on Steam or other DD (digital distribution) sites. I think I have already seen it for $5 once this year. Also, which Puzzle Quest are you talking about? Challenge of the Warlords? Because the second one is the same price ($10) and you may consider getting the slightly improved sequel.

I'm doing an RPG Fest by console(Current Gen+PS2 & GBA) on my BL, and I'm having trouble deciding what I should pick as my DS and PSP/PSN games. Since the Fortune Cookie's being a jerk, I figured I'd just do a Wild card of the 3 most desirable games in my collection for each and have everyone vote on what game I'll pick. I have a feeling the turn out will be pretty bad, but still:

DS Game: KH 358/2 Days, Disgaea DS, or SMT: Strange Journey?

PSP/PSN: Star Ocean: First Departure, Final Fantasy 7, or Grandia?

@Mickeymac
For the DS, I can recommend Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon.
If you have a DS lite or DS Phat, then the first Fire Emblem released in America is the game for you. (Its title is "Fire Emblem")
Now, the reason I clicked on this thread was so that I could recommend two games in particular.
These games are Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance (GC) and Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn(Wii).

FE is a series of tactical RPG's that was exclusive to Japan until it recieved great popularity due to Marth and Roy, the protagonists of FE 1 and FE 6 respectively, being put in the game Super Smash Brothers Melee. (For those of you who don't already know.)

2 things:

1. That wasn't one of the 3 choices. I really was just asking for a vote of the ones I mentioned above. I appreciate the recomendation, but I already know what I'm looking for right now.

2. No to Fire Emblem. Out of all the strategy RPGs I've played FE has always been my least favorite, just after Final Fantasy Tactics. I can see why others like them, but the generic Medievel theme, Rock-Paper-Scissors gameplay, and high difficulty do nothing for me, and of course the perma-death frustrates me to no end. I even have Shadow Dragon, and I've played Path of Radiance aand both GBA games, and I've regretted all of them. The only one I really liked was Fire Emblem Gaiden, which is different from the rest of the series. Otherwise they're just not for me.

Is the Bit.Trip series any good? I like a good retro platformer, and one of the Bit.Trip games looks like one.

You're thinking of Bit.Trip Runner. I just started it today and I could barely tear myself away from it, and I don't even like patformers that much unless they're REALLY good. Trust me, you'll love it.:)

@Mickeymac DS: Strange Journey, PSP/PSN: Grandia

What do people have to say about FF:4HoL? How long does it take to finish (if possible)? It seems pretty good but unless it's a really good game I don't think I want to fill up my backlog even more.

Sadly, Voting ended Yesterday, and Kingdom Hearts won. However, since Disgaea DS will be part of my Holloween Creepfest (yes, I'm holding multiple Marathons at once. I'll also be marathoning the Bit.Trip series once I'm up to it), so Strange Journey will be next in the queue.

On the plus side, Grandia won by a landslide.;)

@Otaku Kirby's epic yarn and FF4. KEY may not be out where I live yet but it looks like a great game.

Strange Journey and Mega Man Zero Collection should be your highest priorities because they will become rare and hard to find before you know it. They are both of excellent quality, but I'll have to hear why you're interested in these two before I can really recommend them to you.

Well, everyone has their own tastes.
Well then, I recommend Fire Emblem GBA to everyone reading this comment other than you.

Oh darn, just missed the deadline. Grandia is a true classic, enjoy!

@Otaku Strange Journey is awesome if you like old-school JRPGs and dungeon crawlers.

@Robo-goose Yeah, FE GBA is one of my favourite GBA games and my favourite in the series, too. I might play it again to see if it's aged at all in these many years since.

EDIT: Oh god, now I have the Grandia battle music stuck in my head. :D

Since Wal-Mart doesn't have Hexyz Force (RAAAAAAGE), should I get:

  • Z.H.P: Unlosing Ranger VS. DarkDeath Evilman
  • Valkyria Chronicles 2
  • Ys SEVEN
  • Ys: The Oath in Felghana

Or should I just say the hell with RPGs and get Blaz Blue: Continuum Shift so I can play as a squirrel girl?
