Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Quest XI looks glorious

I'd also agree with others here that they shouldn't have bothered with giving you the ability to move your characters around if they weren't going to do anything with it...but I still play around with it sometimes just for fun. I also wish that Pepping wasn't so RNG-based, so I can plan around it better, but it's not like there isn't some strategy to it.

You know you can keep Pep Up status indefinitely so long as you keep the Pepped Up Person on the bench right? It makes setting up Hallelujah! that much easier (although doing that requires locking down the MC, Erik and Jade for extended periods of time which kinda sucks).

The MC also gets a skill that lets him trigger Pep Up at any time you're willing to put down the MP for it, which is really useful since he's so indispensable to the majority of the Pep Powers.
You also can get an item that induces pep, and in the end game one that induces it for the full party. Honestly though, aside from the pep powers the pep up is pretty useless. It's pretty helpful to use it for electro light, hallelujah, and executioner before you get erik's crit hit, and one of the end game powers is pretty broken....except it can be disruptive waved....

I recall that big hulking knight who joins Justin's party always sounded like he had a stuffy nose.  I mean, wow.  Bad voice acting is one thing, but putting in a voice actor who clearly has a cold...
Hey don't you insult Gadwin!

Except I'll actually be playing those games...
Man I hate it when someone plays the same jrpg as me and we can talk shop about it.

LOL, D!

I do miss the Discord, but work's been crazy so I had to step away from some of the more distracting distractions I had accumulated in my work routine.  The RPG Fan Discord was, BY FAR, the most distracting!  Ha ha!

I'll try popping my head back in someday soon, esp when DQXI and VC4 drop.
But you actually said you left when Octopath dropped to avoid spoilers. Wouldn't that logic apply to both of those games as well?

The Shenmue OST really is amazing.  I say that as someone who has never played Shenmue.
What REALLY bugs me about jrpgs is Arvis is STILL no back on discord to join in our legendary shenanigans. Hate when JRPGS do that.

I also liked how the Kingdom Hearts games had different battle music in each of their worlds.
KH2's Pirates of the Carribean world music will always hold a special place in my heart as a strangely awesome beatdown theme.

One thing in particular you really had to appreciate about skies of arcadia was that dynamic boss theme, how it changed based on situation. More rpgs should do that.

I think Legaia was one of the few instances where an "anime-thing" visually aged up the characters rather than vice versa.  Normally, characters are drawn to look way younger than they really are.
It's bad in any case! All media needs to stop this shit! I mean for fucks sake, why do they make 30+ year olds play high school girls in movies and tv shows!?!? Just knock it off already!

Legaia had an interesting battle system, but its painfully slow overworld movement was unbearable to me.  I also found the boss fights pretty merciless.
Loved legend of legaia. Dope music, hot fighting system, Noa was (edited because 33 year old me can't say what 14 year old me thought),

TORRRRNNNNAAADDDOOOOO FFUUUURRRAAAAMMMMMMEEEEE!!

Edit: holy fuck, the wiki says she was 12....just bullshit on that....

Further edit: Vahn was 14?!?! Yo wtf....something's fishy there.

Og Richter hands down. Those lines were truly epic and cheesey and amazing. No one cares about Alucard's voice because he just beat dat ass, but Richter and Dracula's conversation is easily my favorite voiced moment in a video game....it's also the only one I memorized...so that.

Can we change Aeolus's title to "party pooper" since he LITERALLY shits on everything we all love?

It sucks to get old and jaded.

Although having a Triumph the Insult Comic Dog as an AV would be amusing for about a month.

But I probably should replace my current Avatar with one based on the bottom right part of this image.


Don't you dare use that as grounds to slander the epic voicework of Symphony of the Night. I'll end you in the most jrpg of ways....a long grueling battle where I mostly cast aoe heals every round and have 1 person attack because jrpg bosses are surprisingly dull....

Lufia Ruins of Lore was fun once you stopped caring about the story andnjust did the ancient cave. I dug the music, but I've always had a good appreciation for Lufia's music scene (dat sinistral theme yo....). I mean it's not great but it's no star ocean 5.

But as far as revenge plotlines go, you have openings there besides a single option. Person ruined your life, our for revenge. Persons killed your family, out for revenge. Persons stole your kingdom, out for revenge. I mean you're gonna fight them in the end, and the idea is you can either sate your bloodlust or rise above them, but the story can evolve quite nicely.
