@HolyMackerel I would actually buy Beyond Good & Evil, Fallout, and Myst except for the fact that I already have Beyond G&E on the GameCube, my family has a policy with games that are rated M (which I REALLY don't like), and that Myst is not really my thing. However, in my edited post I am also looking into Burnout Paradise since I'm a huge fan of Burnout 3. Would you recommend Burnout Paradise over Red Steel 2?

Darklord is a great tower defense game, though it's a challenge to get through without buying any DLC. Which is what I'm trying to do. :) Crystal Defenders seem to have been received much worse in general than Darklord too.

I figured as much, but for what it's worth, R1 and R2 look decent.

I would actually reccomend you get it on psp or something because its cheaper, and is portability. But yea, try out darklord (if you still have the demo) but i haven't tried it, so you should go read some reviews while your at it

@V8 Ninja That's a shame because Fallout at that price is a huge huge steal and the game is fantastic. One of the best WRPGs ever. It's rated M but you can switch off violence and swearing... which just leaves the bleak backstory and somewhat gruesome-looking mutants. ;) Trust me though, the story itself is very intelligent, sophisticated and not gratuitous. Very much a thinking man's game (even the combat). And if you're 17 or over then you have every right to buy and play it.

I haven't played much of Burnout Paradise, only at a friend's place, but it's mostly a love-it-or-hate-it game it seems. I'm not a racing fan except for arcade/combat racers so I'm not the best one to judge. Personally I'd choose Red Steel 2 over it.

Let's play some Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate! Let me know who you are before you add me.

I've played through the demo, but I find the DLC to be too tempting to download :D

Thanks Mickey Mac. I think I'm gonna get Demons' Souls on import. I would get Mass Effect 2 but unfortunately it's not out on PS3 yet.

Also can you answer this question if possible: Of all the WRPGs you mentioned, which is the least sinister and gloomy?

I think Sacred 2 is the only one that's not all doom and gloom, at least, not compared to the others. Fallout 3 is also less sinister and Gloomy than it looks.

Hey, I am looking into two PS2 RPG's. Shin Megami Tensei : Persona 4 and Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria. Any thoughts on either one ?

Persona 4 all the way. It's got a much better story, as well as gameplay that isn't nearly as convoluted as VP2's.

@Mickeymac I took your advice. I ordered it off of Amazon. I watched some videos and Persona 4 sure looked a lot more interesting. Thanks !

@GamingAddict I'd actually recommend P3F over P4 if you haven't played it. The story and characters are far better. Still don't discount VP2 though, it's a great game - but it doesn't compare to the SMT series. :)

Radiant Dawn is the Direct sequel to Path of Radiance, so I'd say you're better off playing PoR first, then RD.

Okay, two quick Q's:

I got No More Heroes 2 yesterday, but I don't have NMH1. Should I just play the game I already have, or should I wait until I get the first game and play through that?(or more likely just watch Youtube videos of it, since the gameplay in the first NMH looks and sounds terrible) I can't remember if No More Heroes 2 recaps the story, or just leaves you hanging...

Also, is it necessary to play the first Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner in order to play the second?(and I'm talking about the PS2 games with the stupidly long titles) Devil Summoner 2 seems interesting, but I really don't want to be confused throughout the story because I skipped the first game. (it lacks the Demon Negotiations, which is pretty much the only reason that I play this series)

@Mickeymac I haven't played either of the Devil Summoner games, but I have DS2 sitting on my shelf. My impression is that you don't need to have played the first one, even though it is a narrative predecessor. There are some references you won't get, but that's all. You get a few bonus items for loading the DS1 save file into DS2, but they're not necessary since their only worth is in selling them for Yen.

Though if you're a series completionist then by all means you should get it.

I enjoyed Fieldrunners. If you like tower-defense games, that would be a good choice.

To be honest, I have been thinking about getting Fieldrunners, but the 2 tower-defense games I downloaded were pretty underwhelming so I'm a bit speculative on the quality of tower-defense games for the DSIware

I have played Starship Patrol, and I seem to prefer Fieldrunners. It tends to have a better "tower defense" feeling than SP's, imo.

Well that's good. So long as I won't be totally and utterly confused, I'd be alright. Thanks.
