    Just found this on Gamefront: one of the rarest and most expensive PS1 games is getting a sequel (or rather, a prequel, story-wise). Excellent news, provided they'll release it somewhere outside of Japan that is.

    Japanese release date: TBA 2006

    Is it worth buying? On eBay the average price, inc. postage, is around 70. Apart from Lunar 2 its the only PS1 game I still want.

    Shameful confession:
    I've never actually played it! :-)

    Haha aww no way =)

    More confessions: I own Lunar Silver Star Story, Dragon Warrior VII, Star Ocean 2, Legend of Mana, Persona 2, Chrono Cross, Vagrant Story, FF Tactics and Xenogears, and I haven't played ANY of those.

    And this coming from the guy who wants another rare but great RPG... - I think its for the best if I strike Suikoden I and II and any/all Tales games off my wishlist forever =p

    I have at least played more than half of the games in your 'unplayed' list, so I am vindicated. Xenogears, FFT and Chrono Cross really do deserve a play, at the very least. :-)

    My 'unplayed PSOne RPGs' list stands thus:
    Alundra 2
    Azure Dreams
    Jade Cocoon
    Legend of Kartia
    Koudelka
    Legend of Dragoon
    Parasite Eve II
    Saga Frontier 2
    Valkyrie Profile

    ... that's not half as bad as I thought it was, actually! And I will play them all. One day.

    The game was released in english. It's dialog heavy, and it is simply marvelous. Amazing 2d sprites, wonderfully animated, with a very fresh combat system, and the whole gameplay is a blast. A keeper.

    It's getting better and better. According to the latest news, tri-Ace is also porting the original VP to the PSP. The game (called Valkyrie Profile Lenneth) will contain new story elements and FMVs.

    Could we please get a PAL version, Squenix?

    I would however point out that the VA in Valkyrie Profile is shockingly awful - And you CAN'T turn it off...

    Sakuraba's soundtrack was very nice, though.

    Mmh, I haven't heard it yet, obviously. Is it as bad as the VA in Baten Kaitos (in case you've played that)? Now that was shockingly awful.

    Having only played the first ten minutes or so I can't really comment for the full game, but the VA in the intro movie is pretty damn cringe-inducing. :-)

    Anyway - PSP version?! Bugger. There goes the resale value. :-)

    Yeah, but what is the chance of getting an english language version? And the VA will STILL suck, though it is hard to choose between this and Baten Kaitos as to which is the most awful...

    Nah, actually once you hear "Welcome to Valhalla!!!!" or "Ragnarok?!?!?!??!??" I think you would agree VP is the clear winner...

    Well in that case it's at least bearable. Unlike the German version of Grandia which has the worst VA ever witnessed by human ears. I'm still traumatised, honestly. The most absurd thing is that 1/3 of the game is in English (with excellent voice acting by the way), 1/3 in German (the mind-shatteringly bad part) and 1/3, er, both, at the same time, like in those 24/7 foreign shopping channels. Seriously wtf!

    That's why I'm pretty much immune to merely bad voice acting. In fact, I like the voice over in games like Symphony of the Night, Resident Evil or Star Ocean 3. \o/

    Try watching the Perfect Dark Zero video review on GameTrailers for a fantastic example of how shite-awful voice-acting can make it into even the biggest of releases! :-)

    The official page is now up (not much there yet, though).

    Also, here are a few pics of VP Lenneth (CG intro this time?).

    Whoah, that village in the third screenshot looks absolutely gorgeous. Real next-generation! \o/

    Come on tri-Ace, you know we love you. Understandable version soon, pretty please?

    Dont play Saga Frontier 2. At the most boot it up and look at the lovelyness but dont let playing it ruin the experience.

    Also I couldnt stand Legend Of Dragoon. Back in the day I saved for ages to buy it and the battle system just felt poor. (I know it has the hitting stuff to actually do stuff in battle or something but it just felt slow and 'clunky').

    Also "Xenogears, FFT and Chrono Cross". Three of the sexiest games ever. Apart from FFT which was just lovely to me (my modded PSOne died just as I was on the third battle :( ).
