Whoa there,No Strategy RPG comes close to Shining Force.
Totally agree. I would love to see a normal offline Phantasy Star game. PSO killed it like UO killed off Ultima. Phantasy Star II is still one of my all time favorite straight up role playing games.Man a new Shining Force, or even a new Phantasy Star would be fantastic really.
It's disappointing that Sega hasn't bother with Shining Force in ages (I honestly can't recall the last time I've even seen the name), and it was honestly one of the rpgs that got me hooked to the genre. I'm not exactly sure how S.F. would sell in this age though. Seems like the only ones who buy JRPGs are those who are already a fan of the genre though sadly.
Yeah I recently noticed the first two Shinning Force games on Steam, I am totally going to get them.I suggest playing some Shining Force - you might be surprised how many things Fire Emblem copied.
I was not aware of that thanks. I don't know of any Shining Force before the 16-bit Genesis. I know they had Shining in the Darkness which was a first person dungeon crawler. Not sure who copied who. Appreciate the info.Yeah I recently noticed the first two Shinning Force games on Steam, I am totally going to get them.I suggest playing some Shining Force - you might be surprised how many things Fire Emblem copied.
(Then I will likely post about about all the awesome after I beat it. XD)
Though I do feel like I should mention that the first two Japanese only Fire Emblems came out before the first Shining Force.
(Though that still doesn't mean they haven't copied features for the later titles. )
