I'm somewhere around 20 hours into Skies of Arcadia and I'm still on the first disc :lol: So, it must be pretty long. Right now I'm playing Skies of Arcadia for DC, Mother 3 for GBA, DQM:Joker for DS, and Twilight Princess for Wii.

Two of my favorites right there. Though I've only played the Gamecube version of SOA. KOTOR is a masterpiece and SOA has more genuine charm than 90% of the japanese rpgs out there. Reminded me of the original Grandia for that reason(which is still the best Grandia game).

No rpg playing for me. No time, but I have one or two items I still need to get in FF12 whenever I can get around to it like the Grand Helm and Grand Armor I believe, than I'll probably stay away from rpgs until whenever I can get a PS 3 and Final Fantasy 13

I just finished FF7. And, although I have several complaints, it still holds up well. Not quite as magical as when I played it in '97, but still a damned good game.

I've been on the fence between my next RPG choice for a while. It's been between Earthbound and Chrono Cross. Unfortunately, for some reason I can't move diagonally with my PC gamepad on Earthbound, so I've chosen Chrono Cross for now. (With the hope that Earthbound will be released on the Virtual Console soon - as the rumors are pointing to.)

Having played through Chrono Trigger many times, I've got (unrealistically) high expectations. My initial impressions are good so far. The battle system seems pretty cool, and the graphics are leaps and bounds ahead of the super-deformed characters of FF7.

Grandia II for the DC here. Quite a battle system indeed.
Don't that just look oh so tasty?

Currently i'm re-playing Silver on the Dreamcast for the first time in 8 years and i'm pleased to say that the game has held up quite admirably, the graphics look quite dated but never to the point where it becomes detrimental to your enjoyment of the game. The DC port does have a few problems though, commanding your AI companions for one, so I might see if I can hunt down the superior PC original.

Just got done re-playing Valkyrie Profile 2 again, and after i'm finished with Silver I fancy going back to Skies of Arcadia (if I can stomache the random battle hell).
