better still, the option to directly control party members in battle.


Sorry if I'm being ignorant here, seeing as I haven't really spent a good amount of time on any Persona games, but I've tried the second and I thought you were able to control all members in combat.
What happened there, did they decide to take that out?
From what I see, Persona 3's battle system lends itself just fine to controlling the full party.
Or did that mean something else?

Agarest War is pretty shameless with that; but when all is said and done it STILL can never beat No More Heroes 2.

Persona 3, and only Persona 3 (and only on the PS2), has you controlling just the main character. All other members of the party are on permanent autopilot.

I was unaware of Strange Journey, it's not on my "for sure" list this year and Pokemon also comes out in March, but I shall look into it. Persona 3 PSP is though, even though I've already got FES Razz

And I just love how Atlus has been releasing soundtracks with a lot of their games lately, this pleases me Very Happy But more first person dungeons for Strange Journey? Ugh!

Heh, I still have my Virtual Boy. I wonder if I can find a copy of Jack Bros. out there somewhere.

You get all of that extra stuff with Agarest and it still only costs $59.99?
That's a great deal!

Well I'm about to start Mass Effect 2......Been a long time coming Cool

Well the PS3 version will likely go for about $30-$40 approximate so to add $20-$30 more for the extra stuff included in the Xbox 360 release then $60 seems about right. Plus from the looks of it the cd won't get it's own case and will probably be included on the game disc case. But for me I really want that limited edition but just don't want a Xbox 360.

Side note- So we get DOA Paradise before Japan. Nice.

Am I alone in thinking that the D.O.A. series will be slightly better with Itagaki gone from Team Ninja?

Personally I've hated Itagaki ever since he said the tekken series was horrible only a few years after he said he loved it and it was his biggest inspiration, Oh and he already destroyed D.O.A. so I don't care much about that series any more.

Maybe without him they can make a "real" fighting game!

There's a Nanoha fighting game? The PSP plays import games without modding, right?

Also, I could have sworn P3P included The Answer. Though, I guess due to space concerns it makes sense to leave it out. At least now I feel less like I have to buy P3P when I have FES.

White Knight Chronicles.

I have been putting off the urge to buy a PS3 for so long. I ignored the Blu-Ray options, the wireless connections, and Metal Gear Solid 4. Why? Because I still enjoy my 360. And with Mass Effect 2 that I just got yesterday, that has not changed my thoughts on this. Not even that one really serious looking dark fantasy game has convinced me to buy a PS3. That and the fact that I still play PS2 games, which the PS3 has long been incompatible for...playing. (I don't like ending a sentence with a preposition)

But White Knight?

I think I'm about ready to cave.

You know, I'll probably still end up buying that Agarest game eventually.
