i recently played Bravely Default and that was pretty good; my 3DS needs more RPGs other than Pokemon :P
i bought FFX-remaster for PS Vita too but while it was "remastered" rather well and the graphics looked good despite it being a 10-yr old game, i couldn't really get into it because i wasn't as motivated as when i first played this game when it was first released.
now, i'm waiting for FF 15. it's been like what, 7-8 freaking years since it's been announced; im really hyped up for it, but it has just been wayyyy too looong
oh and im waiting for Persona 5 too of course. i probably wouldn't get Persona Q because i don't really like first-person RPGs (i don't like first-person shooters either), but i loooved Persona 3 and 4. in fact, i beat persona 4 twice on ps2 and psvita.
Man, the E3 dragon combat demo for Dragon Age Inquisition is pretty much exactly what I was afraid of. I truly hope only dragon combat is like that because if it's not they are going full bore action RPG. It actually just looks like they tried to rip off Dragon's Dogma. And as much as I love Dragon's Dogma, that is a terrible idea for Dragon Age.
Supposedly, there is still some RTS interface you can choose and I'm pinning a lot of hopes on that being something that's usable and not just tacked on.

Shin Megami Tensei x Fire Emblem is still being developed in case anyone is wondering
Alrighty got back into Dragon Age Origins though still at the beginnng in the fade, such great VA.
Visuals didnt stand the test of time though, it was shocking going from ps4 visuals back to this 2009 era visual game. And the game performance feels janky at times on my console
Lords of the Fallen looks promising. Might buy the PC version if there's any.
I've started playing SAO Hollow Fragment on Vita recently.
As a huge .Hack fan I was pretty curious what they'd do with it and the results aren't great. The actual story seems cool it basically takes the end of the first arc of SAO and changes it so the game continued until floor 100. Along with streching events to bring Sinon, Kirito's sister and a few others into the game. It doesn't 100% make sense but the idea is cool enough that I didn't really care. Sadly there are some big problems.
The translation is quite literally the worst I've ever read. In parts it does not even resemble English. The worst stuff is in this dating minigame where you literally have to guess what answer to give because the text is completely nonsensical. It's engrish at it's finest.
Speaking of the dating game it's gotta be the oddest of it's kind I've ever seen, mainly due to how Kirito is married to Asuna and still doing the dating minigame. So the elements aren't so much "dating sim" as "cheating sim". Which was a pretty weird design choice. It's like they were caught between not wanting to mess with the canon and wanting to open up the relationships in the series a little. And what they ended up doing is pretty bizzare.
New trailer, for Bravely Second, but sadly no subtitles. It arrives in Japan this winter.
It looks even more gorgeous than the last game and it has a wider scope.
Isn't the new MC (I forgot her first name) from the moon? The characters will probably go there.

Persona 5 teaser:
Im glad persona 5 is also coming to ps4.
Well, after the disaster DA2 was, I was really skeptical about DA3. But after watching the 30min gameplay video (available on youtube) I can say that the mechanics alone, are enough to make me get the game.
I'm keeping expectations low. It's really safer that way.
Except, after watching tons of previews and such, I'd say my expectations aren't low exactly. It's just that I expect it to be an entirely different sort of game than Dragon Age Origins. That game was the spiritual successor to Baldur's Gate and Kotor and just don't think Inquisition is "that" game. It looks like the strategic view will allow for some of that but at it's core it really looks to me like an action rpg. Sort of like an improved Mass Effect adapted for swords and magic.
Which, while not exactly what I was hoping for, should at least still be pretty enjoyable.
According to my experience with this franchise, the difficulty level is what determines what type of game you are playing.
If you play on nightmare, you HAVE TO pause and use the strategic view which makes it more enjoyable and a little similar to the old RPG gems.
If you play on a lower difficulty level, it's just another action RPG with a good story.
I also hope the characters are better than they sound. To be honest, the new companions I've read about so far sound like a bit of a mixed bag. Cassandra and Verric from DA:2 should be good. Iron Bull also sounds cool. The rest I find it hard to get excited about. Hopefully, actually seeing them in action will change my perspective on that. Because if there's one thing I want to this game to do well it's the characters.
