I do believe most gridders sell around that much.

Re: Recommendations for more games like Demon Gaze

Have they officially announced Far East of Eden? That had to be the most highly teased title out of everything. I don't think they have officially announced anything besides CoH2 for PS3. To be fair, it sounds like publishing CoH2 had a ton of unexpected complications outside of Gaijinworks, which ...

You can say that again. Wasn't Class of Heroes 3 supposed to come out last year? I know he's still working on it but we still don't have a release date.

CoH2 is on the European PSN. Or coming to.

I don't do digital PSP games, but I would buy a physical copy.

Re: DRPGs General Discussion

So 'DRPG' means dungeon crawler? :? I haven't seen the term DRPG being used anywhere else. Terms: Dungeon Crawler = an RPG that's about delving dungeons, killing mosters and collecting loot (as opposed to story, character interaction, realism etc.) First person RPG = an RPG in which you see the game...

Re: Demon Gaze (Vita) 4/22 (NA) 4/25 (EU) LE on NISA Store!

Everything is relative. Etrian Odyssey is big compared to other Japanese gridder series (I think), but it's small compared to Final Fantasy, which is small compared to Grand Theft Auto. In the end, the only thing that matters is that they sell well enough to be a profitable business, and it seems li...

Re: Exploring dungeons step at a time - a guide to gridders!

That's exactly what I meant by it being a disservice, as those games are awesome although they don't have grid-based movement. Eh? Am I doing a disservice for excluding, say, Cave Story? That's an awesome game too. :| Gridders are a thing of their own, and deserve to be recognized as such. It's a n...

Re: Exploring dungeons step at a time - a guide to gridders!

Also, I'd say just mentioning grid-based first person RPGs is a disservice, as you leave out wonderful games like Arx Fatalis and King's Field. Both of those have free movement, so they are not gridders. Yeah, I don't really think this thread will have much of an impact. "Gridders" seem t...

Re: Elminage Gothic Remix (3DS)

I've been pestering them too, but no reply. I'm guessing Elminage: Original didn't sell well and they decided against continuing. The reviews really put it down for the localization (or pretty much for the lack of it) which resulted in a poor Metacritic score, which I'm guessing killed it. I've alre...

Re: Exploring dungeons step at a time - a guide to gridders!

This is almost the same thread as the one in the Demon Gaze subforum :shock: I included the list of recommendations in this guide. Every JRPG can be considered a "grinder." DRPG's can be considered "grinders" based on their difficulty curve. I wouldn't consider EOIV or Millenniu...

Exploring dungeons step at a time - a guide to gridders!

I've enjoyed grid-based first person RPGs ('gridders' for short) since the early 90's. This RPG sub-genre started all the way in the 80's, but in recent years it's been enjoying a revival, one that seems to be picking up steam rather than slowing down. In fact, it's possible that this year we will s...

Re: Stranger of the Village of the Sword (Vita) - DRPG by EX

I love the art style, it looks similar to Elminage.

Hopefully Demon Gaze will be popular enough to open the gates for more gridders like this!
