Happy New Year! Starting with retro!
So to make a long story short. My wife took over the HDTV to play the wii (Epic Mickey) and it is too bright during the day to run my projector for my XBOX/PS3, so I have hooked up my PS2 across the room to my GXTV (which is too old for Component inputs.) I never could get rid of my GXTV as it has been so useful for DVD's and game systems over the years.
What is a GXTV? Samsung made these 13 inch TV's for video gamers about 10 years ago that feature built in speaker doors the close to cover the screen and a built in subwoofer. So the TV sounds awesome and the picture is not bad for older systems (my PS2 looks awesome on it.)
Anyhow I dusted off an old JRPG for the PS2 called "Rogue Galaxy" and I forgot how much I love this game. It is more of an action RPG with random battles that play out in real time like Kingdom Hearts. What I love about this game is that it was made by Level 5 (which made Dragon Quest 8 on the PS2) and to this day looks stunning on the PS2.
It kinda has this outer space with old pirate ships mixed with Phantasy Star multi planet system/ story mode type thing going for it.
The story and characters are great..sigh...
just don't know why great JRPG like this one do not get a sequel?
Too bad the PS2 does not have achievements:( I could spend the rest of my life playing all of the older RPG's that came out for this great system .
