Growlanser IV: The Wayfarer Of Time
Yeah, I picked that game up too about a month ago. If felt so strange buying a game for the PSP; I had almost forgotten that I owned the thing.
Aren't the Growlanser games great? It's like if Baldur's Gate were a JRPG. I don't know why games have moved in the direction of controlling one character and having any other characters be AI controlled, but nothing is more satisfying in RPGs than controlling your full party strategy. That's what RPGs are about IMO. Different characters, all with different roles in battle, all of them under your full control.
Assassin's Creed is a little disappointing, but a good game. So far doing way too much escorting and far too little assassinating. And they took far too much from Arkham City brawling, combat is feeling far less natural.
