It was up for a brief window at $5.99, but they fixed that and its back for $9.99 now. Worth it in either case.

Suikoden II is legitimately my favorite PS1 RPG. I like it better than FFVII, FFVIII, FFIX, Xenogears and all the rest of the hallowed and revered collection there. Suikoden I isn't as great as II, but it is an easy game to get through (25-30 hours for a PS1 RPG is short), and the save import stuff into Suikoden II is really cool. Everyone that never had a chance to play this game needs to give it a chance. It has auto-battle to deal with the "grindy" nature of old school RPGs, and characters that are behind in levels will catch up quite fast. I think the 2D nature of the graphics lends it a more timeless quality than some of the early 3D stuff being done on the PS1 (FFVII I'm looking at you).

Please play this game if you haven't, it really is a great game.

And another big point is that a lot of the recently shipped games (at least the ones I've played: Civ:BE, Mordor, & Valkyria Chronicles) have had weird issues running at Refresh rates above 120Hz at least at release. I know Civ:BE got a patch pretty close after release that took care of some of that stuff. Valkyria looks like it works well most of the time but encounters weird bugs with high refresh rates (like some things are being done faster than they should have, equipment wearing out early, taking more crossfire, etc). Mordor had reports at launch of it straight up not running at 144Hz. You had to drop down to 120Hz or less to get the game to boot, but those were again fixed in a patch after a week or two.

I'm sure it will get better with time as more PC devs get used to that hardware being out there, but be warned that you need to be ready to deal with that stuff.

Nice to see Vavle at least trying to clean up the Early Access mess. I doubt this will stem the tide of junk being shoved in there, but hopefully it will at least slow it down and maybe make some dev consider skipping it altogether.

That DA article from Kotaku is quite a great read. Thanks for the good links, Scoops! Now all I want is that Valkyria Chronicles QL:Solo =)

EDIT:

MY WISH IS GRANTED! THANK YOU BASED SCOOPS!

THIS GAME IS GREAT! I hope more people play it with this release, I know I will relish the chance to play it again in hopefully better framerate and higher resolution.

Hey everyone, I hear that there are some pretty rad games out there to play? Shadow of Mordor is thing! That's pretty great! I'd like to play Bayonetta 2, Gamespot gave that a 10! Crazy! There is NEW CIV GAME coming out this month!

I'm gonna go play all that and maybe let some other people sort all of this out. Hopefully, the games industry will still be here when I'm done.

Dragon Age 1 is the one worth playing, that's nice! DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES PLAY DRAGON AGE 2, HOWEVER.

And for my money, I won't be playing 3 or whatever they're calling the new one until either it gets a huge sale or goes off Origin (so a sale, b/c they will never give up that shitty service).

Sounds about right for an Obsidian game. I kinda expected them to push it to mid next year honestly. Oh well, still excited for it.
