suikoden-2

rpg recs because miniaturerose asked me to!

PSX: Final Fantasy 6-9. I don’t really recommend FF7 these days. FF8 is okay. FF7 is enjoyable but that’s more of a game that was enjoyable back in its time.
Chrono Trigger:
You can buy this for the DS, too
Legend of Mana, Vagrant Story (it’s a hack and slash RPG), Xenogears, Grandia, Star Ocean: The Second Story, Valkyrie Profile, Suikoden, Suikoden 2, Threads of Fate

Gamecube: Zelda: Wind Waker (available for the Wii U now), Sonic Adventure (not sure if this counts as an RPG but I really recommend it anyways). Any of the Paper Mario games, Tales of Symphonia (also available for the PS3)

PS2: .hack//GU, Final Fantasy X, Tales of the Abyss, Final Fantasy XII, Grandia II, Xenosaga (1-3), Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2, Odin Sphere, Shadow of the Colossus, Okami (not sure if counts as RPG but another game recommendation anyways), Valkyrie Profile 2 (meh, not the best but I really enjoyed it? if you like norse mythology), Dark Cloud 2, Persona 3, Persona 4

PS3: Tales of Graces, Tales of Xilia, Tales of Zestiria seems to be good so far!, Tales of Xilia 2, Tales of Symphonia HD, Final Fantasy X-HD, The Last of Us, Child of Light, Ni No Kuni (if you like Studio Ghibli, I really highly recommend it), The Walking Dead, The Wolf Among Us

PS4: Dragon Age: Inquisition, Bloodborne is supposed to be good when it’s out

PSP: Persona 2

Wii: You can download Super Mario RPG!! I recommend this sooooooo much, Zelda: Skyward Sword, The Last Story, Xenoblade Chronicles

DS/3ds: Pretty sure all of the Pokemon games are obvious, so are all the Ace Attorney games, Final Fantasy IV remake, The World Ends With You, Ocarina of Time 3D, Majora’s Mask 3D, Fire Emblem: Awakening, Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Bravely Default

Wii U: Hyrule Warriors, you can download Earthbound, the new Zelda game looks promising, too.

Suikoden 2 on PSN this week ⊟

You might have missed this out of PlayStation Experience, and it’s really dang cool! Suikoden 2, one of the rarest and best RPGs on the PlayStation, is being released as a PSOne Classic this Tuesday in North America. 

That means instead of paying over a hundred bucks on eBay, you can just download it for like 6 (or maybe 10, sometimes big games are 10) AND play it portably on your Vita. What’s up, 2014.

Suikoden II was released today on the Playstation Network! If you love classic JRPGs as much as I do, go do yourself a favor and buy it immediately. It’s a masterpiece of storytelling filled with heart-wrenching drama and fascinating characters. I’ve been evangelizing about Suikoden II for years, but the extreme rarity of the PS1 original always prevented it from reaching a larger audience until now.


I’ve made it my mission to cosplay from each main Suikoden game eventually, and this year I tackled my favorite babe Elza from Suikoden II. I still need more photos of this costume, but they will have to wait until after my finals are done. Until then I’ll be dreaming about Clive, as usual.

Day 3 - A game that is underrated

Suikoden Series

I seriously don’t know why these games aren’t as popular enough to rival the Final Fantasy series. :( The plot of each game is remarkably amazing; the many, many characters are so likable and the concept of the 27 True Runes has so much potential. There’s a lot we don’t know. If… maybe… somewhere in the future, Konami decides to pick up this amazing game again, they can fill all the holes and details that fans of this game crave so much for.

HOLY KINGDOM OF HARMONIA.

Konami pls. I beg of you. Suikoden 6.
