Single-Player RPGs / Mario & Luigi Dream Team Volcano Boss
« on: August 17, 2013, 02:56:59 PM »
I have got this far and I am stuck.

Can anyone who has played Mario & Luigi games tell me, is levelling up in these games important to beating Bosses?

I got to the top of the mountain without to much trouble, avoiding battles where I could, but I am wondering if I need to go back and do some grinding. 

General Games / Bejeweled on the DS
« on: May 03, 2012, 12:08:39 PM »
Has anyone played Bejeweled 3 and/or Bejeweled Twist on the DS.

Bejeweled 3 is just out here in the Uk, but does seem a bit expensive at £17 ($26).

Peggle (also by Popcap) is one of my favorite puzzle games on the Ds so I thought I give bejeweled a try.

Which one is best Bejeweled 3 or Twist and are they worth the money?

It is interesting how 'graphics' do not play a great part when deciding which is the best game.

I agree with Dice. But I look around for the lowest release price then I play them and sell them.

I do keep one game of each type.

Racing: it's Mario Kart
RPR: Dragon Quest
Platform:  All the Mario's
Puzzle: Peggle
etc. etc.

Single-Player RPGs / Muramasa The Demon Blade

Our UK chain of 'Game'  are closing over 200 of their stores and many of the games are selling at a knock down price.

I bought  Muramasa The Demon Blade for just a few pounds and until I got it home I did not realise that it was an RPG.

Has anyone played it?

Yes after two days it's becoming more playable.

But I thought Nintendo's strategy was to make games more accessible, easier to play, hence the wii remote and the stylus.

I bought the game yesterday and I am not happy with the controls. I will give it more time and see what happens but I get the feeling that I will be trading the game in before i finish it.

Just because the 3Ds has 3d and a touch screen does not mean that they both work together. I'm only glad that Nintendo did not have us blowing into the mic. to keep things in the air.

I wonder if the delay in getting the game released was because of the controls and in the end rather than any alter things it was easier to stick a plastic rack into the package.

I can see the reviews for the next Kid game.... 'glad the daft stylus control has been done away with etc.'. but my worry is that because most reviewers have not lowered the score to reflect the bad controls, Nintendo will take this as a positive and have more games played this way.

If you can overlook the control system it's a great game, say the reviews. And it seems to be scoring into the 90% or so.

I will get it because I have a 3ds and very little new games for it. But could that 'if you can over look' quote not apply to all games.

If you can overlook the graphics

If you can overlook the poor game play

If you can overlook the music


Maybe the score should reflect the control system.

Is Zelda Skyward Sword really the best Zelda game ever? Thats what most reviewers are saying.

I am half way through it and although it's a good game it's not the leap forward I thought it was going to be according to the game magazines previews last year.

Has anyone played Zelda Skyward Sword and The Last Story?  What do you rate the better game?

Single-Player RPGs / What one RPG would you award 100% to?

What one RPG would you award 100% to?

I did a quick check and the highest scored games with 98% were Mass Effect, Zelda Skyward Sword and Neverwinter Nights.

And on the handheld console was Chrono trigger DS with 95%.

Should graphics count when giving a score, it seems not if Crono trigger gets 95%

I would give Zelda Ocarina of Time 3DS 100%. Playing in 2d is not the same now, even Skyward Sword looks flat.

Have you played both, which one is the best?

I have played Sentinels of the Starry Skies and quite enjoyed it but Realms of Revelation has received a lower score from most reviews. Is this a step back to Hands of the Heavenly Bride which I didn't enjoy as much, or is it as good as Sentinels of the Starry Skies?

Single-Player RPGs / 3ds free rpg's
« on: February 26, 2012, 08:03:39 AM »
I was one of the ones who paid full price for my 3ds, but in return I got the free games.

What do RPG fans think of the old Zelda games. I tried playing the Minish Cap, but can't seem to get into it, the other two free Zelda games are just unplayable on the small screen.

Is it best to leave these games in the past and spend time on more new stuff?

But then there is only two RPg's for the 3ds. Zelda 3d which was great and Tales of the Abyss which for some reason is not in any UK shops. A few copies are on ebay at double and treble the price.

Having finished the main game I though I would just take a look at a grotto. Found the first one and finished it; it was quite easy.

What I am not sure of is 'why' complete the grotto's? Is is just to collect all 300 monsters? I finished the main game with 217.

Thanks guys for the tips. I have now defeated the final boss and finished the game................. or have I? Is it worth going for the grottos and the rest of the monsters?

Finishing the game may not seem a big deal to most of you but it is for me; this is the first rpg I have finished. I started about a year ago, playing rpg's on the DS and I must have played about 8 but never finished any of them.

I wonder if it was because I built my own hero and had to see it through to the end; or was the game a bit easier than some of the others I've played. Although I did give up on some because they could not hold my attension; like Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Chrone Trigger, Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story, Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes, FF CC Ring of Fates & FFIV.

I hope Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light is as good.

I am at the final boss stage and have lost the battle twice.  I have not had a problem up to now, beating all the other bosses first time.

Reading a walkthrough guide it is suggested that level 45 is ideal and have Miracle Swords.

I am at level 42, so maybe a bit more grinding.

I can get a Miracle Sword with 32 Mini Medals but how do I get more Miracle Swords?
