How is Agarest: Generations of War?

It is not like FFTactics AT ALL. It has a bizarre battle system that relies entirely on characters standing in each other's combo zones (I don't remember what the actual term is) in order to string together chains of attacks each turn. It's not tactical, and involves a ton of repetition since you have to manually enter the combos each turn.

The dating part is really downplayed and way too tame. I was expecting more nudity. I was disappointed.

Overall, it's a crappy "tactics" game and a crappy dating sim.

Sick of the half-naked 14 year old anime characters in every damn game.


Just like how you're sick of that overly muscular, gun-totting, trash-talking character in every damn game, mirite?

I'm sick of both, to be honest.

But if the muscular dudes are at 0, then the anime chicks are at like... -100. They're just so damn annoying. Especially in these kinds of games. They sound, look, and act like children. Sorry Japan, but I'm an adult, I'd like to see less sexy little girls. Who the hell finds that attractive? Do you really want these girls to be your waifus?

I'll probably still play the game if the gameplay itself is good. That's the thing with these Japanese RPGs nowadays. Horrific, abominable, nauseating characters, but (usually) tight, deep gameplay. Just gotta bite the bullet sometimes and endure the desu.

I kind of agree, I used to play JRPG back in my teenage days, now I am too embarrassed to play some of this crap. I think the worst thing to happen to JRPG are voice overs. :P

You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.
