Bound In Flames
Not exclusive, but not on the ONE, anyone getting. I think it looks good, read a few previews that seem positive. It is only £30 on Amazon at the mo, and it is out next week so could be worth a punt
im keen to see how it pans out, im waiting for reviews and people opinions thought before I spend the little spare money I have first.
id stick magna carta 2 in there.

magna carta 2 is great although I got distracted by other games and this thread has just reminded me to finish it. Also I have Nier to finish
Its messed up Mistwalker didn't make any more RPG for consoles as LO was my favorite JRPG. Didn't like the characters in Blue dragon (also QTE action scenes in a RPG, fuck off.
Also fable 3 was shit
So anyone have any clues about Stranger of Sword City or Stranger of the Village of Swords: White Palace that's just come out on the 360 in Japan? Looks like an HD version of Etrian Odyssey on steroids.

There will also be a PC version (white palace) and a vita version with the tag line Black Palace.

I like the look of that, but looks like one of those games that would sell terribly in the west and as such probably wont be released here.
Nearly bought this myself but for the pain in the arse that importing games on demand is - particularly as it's region locked and my Japanese 360 is a bit wheezy. If it's coming to the west, it'll be the Vita version. If you want to play something by the same people, Demon Gaze is out right now, though I think Stranger will be much more difficult.
The PC release is in august, but would love the 360 version. Big fan of the Etrian Odyssey games.
Might pick up the PC box when I'm in Japan later this year. Hopefully Elminage does well in summer - it's a great target for putting on Steam.
Apparently the 360 game is region locked (weird decision) - although I know no Japanese so would miss out on majority of info.
I think that unlike western games, Japanese ones are region locked by default on 360. I'm sure I read that somewhere.

It depends. Play Asia will let you know if the Asian version is region free. My Lost Odyssey was Korean and that works fine. Much better box that the UK because it holds all 4 discs and doesn't have a duff loose 4th disc.
This has been confirmed as region locked on neogaf (unfortunately), the guy has posted up quite a lot of YouTube videos. It looks just the kind of game I would really enjoy. But I'd miss out on all the detail as only the menus can be turned to English.

Looks very Demon Gaze, wonder if I would prefer it on Vita or 360 (my only 360 is a Japanese one (Deathsmiles was my system seller back in the day when I expected zero chance of a western release (and 360+game was cheaper than PCB). Need to finish Demon Gaze first though as was finishing off P4G first (still got YS to finish too on Vita)
Still got my Etrian Odysseys to get through too.
On topic, Magna Carta 2 is one of the few JRPGs on 360 I actually finished (almost finished Star Ocean 4 too despite the voice acting (stopped on final dungeon IIRC))
It'll almost certainly run on the same engine. Same director as well (Motoya Ataka - who is also directing Operation Abyss, out on Vita in Japan next month). It's interesting seeing how they are building up their game system with things like autopilot and the message system - features that once you've seen once you want in every game of that genre. The only thing I really missed on Demon Gaze was the ability to see the location of your own messages on the map.
eternal sonata, magna carta 2.
blue dragon is defo worth playing gets good later on and is a huge game.

Heard blue dragon is microsofts pokemon.
Not an exclusive but it does not have a thread and I didn't see the point of starting one so...
I was undecided on what to play between DA:I and Witcher 3*, so I settled on Risen 3! on the 360.
Only 3 hours into it but I have to say I'm having a lot of fun. I have played the previous 2 and do seem to like shoddy action wrpg's. The swearing is over the top like Risen 2, but the world and the small amount of quests I have done have been fun, the humour remains as well.
Anyway if you only want to spend a few quid (I paid £12) and have some old school fun, go for it.
*advantage being when I play these games they will look stunning and been patched/dlc'd.
