I think its when Monster Hunter became the new hot thing and every game needed to be similar, so they ditched making a good single player rpg and put focus on multiplayer.  The downgrade in graphics is seriously ridiculous.  It went from one of the best looking upcoming games to bottom tier.   It's like the PS3 Infinite Undiscovery, except with multiplayer and no Star Ocean to look forward to.

It could be an Infinite Undiscovery killer and ultimately be the better mediocre jrpg! Now it just needs a Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, and Tales of Vesperia match up.

Lost Odyssey is like the worst game of all time. One of the ugliest, too. This one looks like it might put up a decent fight for that title, though.

That actually seemed to fit really well in that scene, mainly because right before that he yelled 'TRANSFORM' before sticking a sword into his gauntlet and having a giant mech suit appear.

Lost Odyssey was definitely better than Tales of Vesperia in regards to story. Lost Odyssey had a good plot that was occasionally handled well, but sometimes completely fell on its face (Gongora hahaha). Vesperia bored me to tears.

At least Xtards still have a boat to ride on. 

Wise up, Duckman, and jump off the Sony Titanic.  There's still room for you on the Xboat.

shrug. they were low poly and had obvious aliasing. blame square, not me. better to go by the evidence than by console politics, even if it happens to lead you wrong. i thought that first halo 3 teaser with adequate shaders and iq was real too :'(

0/42 achievements, but at least you've played it :lol

It took me over an hour to even get to the first damned story cutscene. Any game that needs over an hour to even sort of get started is a shit game by default. If that then makes the entire genre shit, then that makes sense too.

Lost Odyssey wasn't a bad game of what I played (only 3 or so hours split up in various places...and yes, at a friends dorm if you are willing to believe it or not), but it didn't really hook me or make me want to go out and buy it myself.  Back when FFX came out I first played it at a friends house also, but that actually interested me enough to get me to go out and buy it; although in the end I'm not the biggest fan of FFX because the entire cast of characters are awful.

I'll get LO when its bargain bin cheap.

I see Blue Dragon going for $14.99 new so I think that is a good price point to get LO as well.

I think you guys have been so damaged by the shittyness of shit games in this shit genre that you've lost sight of exactly how shitty and slow these shit games are.

Not my fault that people don't have the patience to sit around and watch a story develop. I'm sure Killzone 2 will be great, right, duckman.  :lol

The best thing about Lost Odyssey was how there was no 'missables' in the game. Shadow Hearts: Covenant also had something like this. This is good design that I wish more companies would take note of, especially tri-Ace and S-E.

It's a flaw, it's that simple. If within an hour it hasn't at least gripped you enough to make you want to slog through another hour to hear about the developing story, then it's just plain shitty storytelling. It's like worse than Zelda or some shit. Shit game is shit.

Damnit borys, are you really that desperate for a j-rpg on PC? I can give you some links to a PS1 emulator if you really are

That looks like the type of the game girl that would come to the Chapters I worked at, take 20 or so anime books, and hide in a corner would play.
