Resonance of Fate was developed by Tri-Ace and published by Sega. Interestingly, it is the only Tri-Ace game not published by Enix or Square-Enix.
I am under the impression you never played RoF, don't like a high opening difficulty in your RPGs, or you played the game for the main plot--something you should never, ever do with a Tri-Ace game.
If you want me to tell you why RoF is both better than FFXIII and the last good JRPG for all time (Demon's Souls/Dark Souls transcends the genres of mere mortals. Suck it.) feel free to message me privately, or make a new non-FFXIV thread.
I didn't know that it wasn't a square published game, actually, thanks for pointing that out. I did know it was a Tri-Ace game (which is usually enough to put it on my want list as I have almost all of their games.) This one is actually one of the few I didn't buy, but that's because I'm getting old and becoming more picky in what games I buy (I play too many MMOs...!) -- which is odd, since now that I have a good job and the money to buy whatever game I want, I actually don't buy as many as I used to when I was a student or between jobs :P
The reason I put it on the list is not because I find the game hard or anything, it's because I know there are no shortage of haters for it -- I was just basically listing games that many consider to be bad games, and therefore games that Square should no longer develop or produce. As I said, I do own most of those (RoF and Parasite Eve:3rd birthday are the ones I don't -- I don't have a PSP, so no PE and no Dissidia for me!)
My post wasn't supposed to reflect my own opinion of any of those games, just the guy I was quoting. Or rather, the guy who was referred to by the guy I quoted. (For example, I used to think Nier sucked really bad, and giving it a few more chances actually made me warm up to it.. It's a bit of an acquired taste.)
-Guy A said "Square should stop making ****** game".
-Guy B said "Lol, you're like rank50 in so many classes!" (Therefore Guy B insinuates that Guy A thinks FFXIV is ******)
-I said "Maybe he means _XX_ game is ******?" (Therefore trying to point out to Guy B that he might have put foot in his mouth because perhaps Guy A does like FF14 and hates some other lesser known Square titles)
Back to you:
That being said, I'll keep your words in mind, and I did laugh after seeing one (rather infamous) RoF cutscene on youtube, and I've had close friends both flame and recommend the game to me. Let's just add 1 person to the "RoF doesn't suck, it actually rocks!" list.
