PS2 RPG’s, Which Should I Choose

Ok, I need help. There are a ton of PS2 RPG’s I haven’t played and I am now the proud owner of a $100 gift certificate to Best Buy. With said gift certificate I want to get some PS2 games. PS2 games are getting cheaper and cheaper, and I figure now is a good time to buy before they’re all gone.

So, basically, if anyone is reading this that has played any of these RPG’s, which would you recommend and which would you stay away from?

Atlus Announces Baroque For Wii And PS2

Atlus Announces New Wii/PS2 Game Baroque

Atlus announced their newest North American release today, Baroque. It’s a dungeon-crawling RPG for both the Wii and PS2 (the PS2 is still totally “in”). They go on to describe the game as being dark, challenging, and totally immersive. Sounds like fun and I’m glad to see the Wii is getting in on the action.

Baroque originally came out in Japan on the Sega Saturn, way back in 1998. There was also a Playstation prequel, Baroque Syndrome, in 2000. I wonder why it took them so long to bring it to North America?

An interesting feature in Baroque…dying seems to be a good thing. Each time you die, you learn more information about the game world. It sounds like a glorified “Game Over” screen, but we’ll have to see.

Check out the official site here, where you can find a nice little trailer (the music is totally radical). Baroque is slated for a February 2008 release. The full press release after the link…

Now Playing: 11/13/07

I haven’t done one of these in like a month, so I decided to add a new update. I haven’t been spending a ton of time playing any games lately, but I’ve still manage to play a bunch of different titles. Some are old, some are brand new, and a select few are awesome and radical.

Persona 3 Gets It’s Own Anime

Persona 3 Gets It's Own Anime

Persona 3, Atlus’ totally radical RPG for the PS2, will soon get it’s own television anime series. The title of the anime will be “Persona -trinity soul-” and premiere in January 2008. The storyline? Apparently it’s set 10 years after the game and the dead have risen with their skin turned inside out. Which is like 20 times worse then having the dead rise with their skin on the right way. Hopefully Junpei will be dead, I’m tired of him whining because he isn’t the hero (and is a loser who can’t do anything right).

More details can be found here.

New Playstation 2 Model Coming Soon

Sony has already released a slimmed down PS2, but according to MCV (I’ve never heard of this site before), a new PS2 model will be released in 2008. It will have a built in power supply, unlike the slim PS2, so it may be slightly larger then the slim, but smaller then the original PS2. The new model is reportedly going to sell for $99, $30 less then the PS2 slim.

Do we really need yet another PS2 model? I still have my original PS2, maybe it’s time to upgrade…

PS2 Turned Seven Yesterday, I Forgot

PS2 Turns Seven

The PS2 is going to be soooo pissed at me. Yesterday was it’s birthday, and I didn’t so much as give it a card. October 26th…how could I forgot something important like this? I’m such a jerk.

I can’t believe it was seven years ago the PS2 came out. I remember the first games I got for the system were Twisted Metal Black and Dark Cloud (I didn’t get the PS2 right when it was released). Anyway, 120 million PS2 have shipped since it’s release, and literally billions of games. That’s insane, the amount of money generated is just crazy. I think I’m going to make it up to the PS2 by playing Persona 3, that’s the least I can do.
