Is anyone a Suikoden fan here? If you're not, you should really check out Suikoden, an old-school RPG involving collecting 108 Stars of Destiny to join your revolution and rewrite history. It's a brilliant series with great storyline, interesting characters (and cute!) and fun gameplay! plus, you can play this game at a leisurely pace and enjoy the mini-games!
the latest one is out, part V, and if any of you is disappointed with part III or IV, fear not, for part V is great and worth every penny! the story's placed in the Queendom of Falena (female dominatrix XD) and you're playing the Prince. Your mum is a great and just ruler...or so you think. The clogs of destiny has once again begun to move, but who knows, you might be able to change fate.
alright, so that was a sucky summary, but check out all the gamesites out there and this game got great reviews (http://www.gamespot.com/ps2/rpg/suikoden5/players.html). worth a space in your collection, RPG-lovers! if you can read Jap, go to Konami's site (http://www.konami.jp/gs/game/genso/V/) for more info and pics! i'm so excited about this game, man. hope it'll beat the best in the series, part II.
