    Oblivion is fine if you completely lack ambition and don't mind thoroughly derivative and repetitive scenery.

    Patrick Stewart is in it, but he dies right at the start. I'd say pass.

    At least it's better than those jrpg's mentioned above. That has to count for something.

    So, I'm not sure Microsoft had to pay for Vesperia, it's possible, but it could just be an attempt at the bigger markets. It could also be like with SO4 where the producer said something along the lines of "when we started developing, the 360 was the only console available", a headstart paying off?

    A little from column A and a little from column B most likely. The 360 being the only HD console available for a year doesn't entirely explain the near total absence of support for the PS3 from key publishers.

    Are you really surprised that Valkyria Chronicles is the only PS3 RPG type title to do well? There have been practically no releases of that sort aside from Disgaea 3, the rest have been minor releases without much marketing muscle behind them.

    Hello.. this is my first post on Eurogamer. :-)

    I've been reading ur threads but noticed that all has been quiet recently. I'm desperately trying to find a turn based rpg for the PS3... does anyone have any ideas? I love FF7 (who doesn't?) and FFX, FFX-2. I've been looking for ages now and can't find anything. I'm so fed up with real time rpgs.. can anyone help me?

    I read in previous messages that Steambot Chronicles 2 might be an option, albeit not the best looking??

    I was thinking of buying enchanted arms now that it is out for PS3?? Any good? I'd prefer (as I expect to put in 40 hours plus) one with trophies, but I'm getting desperate so any ideas welcome!!!!!!

    If you really need an RPG of that type on the PS3 consider Eternal Sonata which is slightly better than Enchanted Arms at least.

    Valkyria Chronicles is my suggestion though it's the best turn based game of the generation so far.

    Enchanted Arms is a sorely underrated game IMO.

    It has a great battle system, interesting characters and looked pretty good for its time (on the 360 at least). The story isn't so hot, but it was engaging enough to keep me playing.

    However, the PS3 port is pretty damn awful. They removed whole sections of level geometry to get it running acceptably, plus it also suffers from aliasing and blurry textures.

    Eternal Sonata and Valkyria Chronicles are both far better anyway, so get one (or both) of those instead.

    Thanks for the ideas, I'll certainly look into those. I'm not sure about Valkyria Chronicles I have to say... from reviews with the overhead map view and so on, it looks a bit different to what I'm used to.. but who knows, maybe that's a good thing. I'm not sure about the idea of only one main character too. I guess if someone else dies you could re-load it, but it seems kind of troublesome. I'll try and decide between that and Eternal Sonata anyway tho.

    I can pick up E Arms real cheap so I'll get that anyway. Really can't wait until FFXIII, from the trailer on PSN it looks absolutely amazing! I was so disappointed when I realised it's not out until next year now! I was just checking my pre-order for this feb, to find out the date and then saw that the release has been delayed by about a year :(

    Give the demo of Valkyria Chronicles a try at least, I don't think the reviews are doing a very good job if they're leaving you so unsure about such a fantastic game.

    The game isn't restricted to an overhead map view, the camera is fully adjustable as your units move around and you have plenty of characters in your unit who play an important role in the story besides the commander, it's definitely not a game about just one character.

    What about that mech game that was reviewed last week, is that rpg-ish?

    I assume he's thinking of Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2, but that's not an RPG at all.

    Thx 4 the help. I checked out the demo of valkyria chronicles and I can c why ppl love it, it does have a real charm to it and the way it is drawn is really nice but it feels too strategy based for me, which is a shame. I really appreciate the help tho. Lets hope some more gd rpgs turn up 4the ps3 before FFXIII! :o

    Don't forget to also check out the Eternal Sonata demo if you haven't already seen it.

    Demon's Souls will be available in English soon also but I don't think you would like it much going on the sorts of games you prefer. Watch a trailer though, you never know.

    Get over yourself. It was a fair comment. You said it was only 6 months old. Go play Noby Noby bestesgameverjapanesedevelopmentomfgwtfamazingartartartgamez and relax.

    Why is pointing out that FFXIII was announced a year ago when you say your list is 6 months old being an arsehole? Why did that comment warrant such a hostile response?

    You reap what you sow, mate.

    It was announced in July last year, and this thread was long dead by then. I know I don't keep a record of every post I make and return to edit it in light of new information a month later.

    It wasn't said in an angry or nasty way at all. The thought that what I wrote could be construed hadn't even crossed my mind whilst writing it.

    You can wind your neck in now, wayneh.

    You're both right.

    You can both [mildly insulting phrase designed to enhance manliness] now.

    I've turned off all the avatars and crap, so don't expect me to be impressed by yours.
