Reading these posts makes me very glad I found my copy going for £15 second hand. I should be fortunate I have a good game shop relatively near me; It's the same shop where I found Digital Devil Saga 1 going for roughly £20.

I named my protagonist Adrian Dolores >_>

The price of Nocturne on ebay is pretty sickening. You should rent it from gamefly, and discreetly keep it forever.

It seems to be going for as much, if not more, than Suikoden 2 on eBay. Though, at least with Shin Megami Tensei 3 you're getting your money's worth. Suikoden 2 is just awful, and totally not worth more than like, $25. I don't advise anyone pay more than $50 for Shin Megami Tensei 3, though. No video game is worth more than that. People on eBay are out of their goddamned minds.

Makes me happy that I bought Nocturne when it first came out, I'm just sorry I didn't do the same with DDS 1 & 2.  Now I'm looking for a reasonable price, but I'm afraid I'll end up paying through the ears if I don't find it at local game stores.

Scratch four so far.  =/

A friend of mine is a huge, wait H-U-G-E, Suikoden II fan. Back when he first beat it I listened to weeks of pre hype. So when he placed it in my paws I was super excited. But after an hour or so I turned off the ps1. I understand that rpg plots occassionally take hours for the story to kick in, but Suikoden IIs plot was so by the books. Main character and best friend fighting an empire. Check. Seperated from best friend later to become rival. Check. A mysterious girl. Check. It was a little too much for me. Rpgs for me dont have to be incredible original, see the standout Grandia, but do something different!

I havent found a copy of Nocturne yet, but I will eventually and at a low price. The only rpg I have been giddy enough to pay a high fee was Panzer Dragoon Saga. My saturn was getting no love and I had Dragoon 1 and Zwei so, yep. I bought it five years ago for around 80 bucks and have yet to regret it. Though it hasnt aged super well, ugh I hate the language the characters speak.  angry

That's probably why Suikoden II felt like such a huge disappointment. I was expecting this epic adventure since everyone spoke of it as if it was the greatest RPG of all time, and what I got was something that couldn't even rival the first Suikoden game. It was boring. I kept waiting for the story to pick up, and it never did. It's too bad such an awesome villain like Luca Blight was wasted on such a boring and overrated video game. I also couldn't stand how homoerotic Jowy was. Konami was probably trying to appeal to the female crowd, but all it did was annoy the hell out of me.

Sega needs to figure out a way to get Panzer Dragoon Saga out to the [English-speaking] masses. Xbox Marketplace or the PlayStation Network is probably our best bet. Or, packing it in with a new Panzer Dragoon game, kind of like what they did with Panzer Dragoon Orta.

Also, I enjoy the fictional language. I like that the developer actually put some effort into creating the language, and that it's not just a bunch of gibberish. I'm glad Team ICO took the same route in using a fictional language for their fictional universe.

The battle with Luca Blight was awesome, just to prepare your 3 (3? I remember they were 3 teams, was long ago u.u) teams to attack him, I remember I spent the whole night training and gaining exp, so I can kick Luca Blight´s ass quicker. It was really coo, I enjoy the game smug.

Heh,that's the one game I have been Dying to play....but couldn't get,due to how high it is on ebay.I remember it being up to 500,or probably more? Don't know what it ranges now.... ..but I have to agree,that would be a great idea if they actually went ahead with doing that.I haven't played Orta though,my last Panzer Dragoon game was Zwei.

Amala really does make maniacs worth it. You get chased by Dante, fight Metatron, and talk to Lucifer. Whats not to like?

Nocturne was the first megaten game i ever saw, and i loved it. ive been an rpg fan for years, and nocturne was finally a breath of fresh air from all the "nicey nice get a group of friends and save the world from the nasty man!" cliche you get in most of the famous rpgs like final fantasy and dragon quest. To me, megaten is to final fantasy what battlestar gallactica is to star trek. you thought you knew good, then this comes in and shows you just how wrong you are by showing just how gritty and dark the genre can get, and i loved it.

and my favourite demon has to be Kikuri Hime. i always loved her because i got Mediaramafrom fusing her REAL early in the game, so i could heal back to max in one spell. ahhhhh, the memories

Surely my favorite Megami Tensei game and the only one to be translated into my native language.

I had some question about it, I am just after the Nihilo attack and I must go to the Kabukicho prison. But I tried to fight Daisoujou several times and I didn't manage to kill him. I know he is an optional boss and he has no weak spot, so can I leave him, go to Kabukicho and come back later to beat him??
thank you.

Now, I remember one part of the game very well because it was probably the weirdest atmosphere in the videogame history ever. It's the part in (SPOILER) Mifunashiro where Chiaki and the Divines are slaying the Manikins (near the end of the game). (END SPOILER) I found that part of the game totally bizarre.

^I know a lot of us have played through this already, but maybe you should mark comments like that with spoiler tags for those that haven't.
