The GWJ JRPG Club Version 2.5 HD Remaster: Now Playing Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark (Q3 2022)!

I already played a ton of Persona 4 which is why it was low on my list. Played to October on the original PS2 release, then beat the Golden version on Vita. I have thought about revisiting it at some point, but there were newer options I hadn't played that I intended to that took my higher votes.

I thought Persona 4 would do better as well. Maybe with the Xbox release coming up? P3P would be a good time too.

I played it before on a borrowed PS2, and I have it now on steam ready for a replay, but for me it would be up against Xenoblade 3 as the really big RPG that I'm going to play over the new few months. I'd still be down to play it if we had voted for it, but Radiant Historia and Fell Seal were much easier to fit in my gaming schedule. I think it'll be a strong contender going forward, though.

Same, I’d be happy to do it next time. I’m about to finish SMT V (“about” = near the end of Taito, so still probably a good bit of end game content), so I wasn’t super keen on the same battle system for this quarter’s game.

I swear I'm still gonna finish the FFVI pixel remaster (I'm nearing the mid-point of the game) but I didn't keep up with the quarterly group.

Funny enough, I started Fell Seal a couple months ago and have poked at it a few times since. Being the Q3 pick seems to be a bit of a kick in the pants, so maybe I'll do better with it for the next little while.

I'm keen to try Fell Seal, but not right now. Interested to hear everyone's impressions!

As for Persona 4, that's definitely one I want to play when it releases on current consoles. But I don't think that is scheduled until next year sometime.

Well, I started earlier today and the game's basic setting and story seems intriguing so far. It's nothing mind blowing, but it does seem to fit FFT's politically focused style. I've had three fights so far, have learned some new skills, and have recruited a 6th party/army member at the local guild.

No new thread yet, right? Will post further thoughts once I play more and the corresponding thread is up.

Yeah I guess we don't technically start until July 1. But I reread the game thread a little bit earlier and am itching to jump back in.

New thread is up!

Thank you, LastSurprise!

Fell Seal is on sale for $7.50 on Steam and other vendors for Steam key.

Also on sale for $10 on Switch.

PS4 version not part of summer sale right now.

I have somehow been a bit oblivious to these clubs in the past but I am looking at jumping in. I already have Fell Seal on PC (If only I had preordered my steam deck earlier as this would be a great "mobile" game.) but I am tempted to pick it up on Switch.

Well Fell Seal is free on Prime Gaming starting today July 1

A little how I feel! Between a few big games right now, so starting another 30+ hour RPG is a bit daunting. That plus work and study...I think you'd all leave me in the dust!

I do miss participating in JRPG club, so hopefully I can play with you all next quarter enjoy!

Updated the thread title and front page with links to our thread for Fell Seal!

Congratulations to hbi2k, our first finisher!

As I said, the theme of this quarter is Overtures. Nothing like a great title track to get you ready for adventure! And in the spirit of tactical role-playing games, we're going to kick things off with one of the greats:

Congratulations to Sorbicol and Sundown, the second and third finishers of Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark!

Sorbicol, don't know if you're reading this, because you don't typically play in the JRPG Club, but back when the Tokyo Olympics featured JRPG music during the opening ceremony, I started a little fanfare whenever club members finished a game. This month, our theme is overtures. And since you're more of a CRPG guy, I have one of my childhood favorites for you:

Sundown, congratulations to you as well! Enjoy the title theme of a big, meaty strategy RPG:

Oh dang there's music? Now I'm going to have to finish.

Congrats to Arkon, our fourth finisher in the cross-play extravaganza!

I think this is your first game with us, so I had to do a little sleuthing to pick an overture that would be a good fit for you. But I think I found a good one:

That is a great theme song, from a game I absolutely loved!
