Aya brea and Parasite Eve is one of the best thing Square did and it also started with Playstation. i considered those games in par with the old Resident Evil games for some reason.
I am a long time fan of both series. I agree they were on par(though REmake>>>>>>>>All)
Sure I wasn't too fond of the events in T3B, but it is a series I love and always will love. And Aya Brea for years have been one of my favorite characters ever. My interest in this game would be much higher if she was a playable character.
I'll eat a sock if VersusXIII is actually a mind blowing game. -PainsPerception
