Maybe Rey will turn into a staff lightsaber user like Darth Maul!

That would be SWEET!

And ridiculous as a Staff is a completely different weapon type that requires a different fighting style compared to that double-ended Lightsaber (since one can be held all wilily-nilly and not sear your fingers/hands off, whereas the other can't).

Or put in a different way, Reigh's actress/stunt double didn't need to invent an entirely new fighting style just for the role like Darth Maul's actor had to (because seriously, its like trying to fight with a kayak paddle except the paddle parts are hot SFX death).

The weird thing is there are people (I even know some...) who pretty much play nothing but Compile Heart games.  I really don't get it, but they've found a niche...

I can believe that there are more people who are willing play Compile Factory games versus people who are willing to play more than one Kemco game (if that).

Then again, people are still willing to play Imageepoch games, so I guess there really isn't any accounting for taste.

Ramza Beoulve Gets An Introduction Trailer For Dissidia Final Fantasy
http://www.siliconera.com/2016/02/03/ramza-beoulve-gets-introduction-trailer-dissidia-final-fantas

What the what? Ramza, waifu material now?

Can everyone fly in Dissidia?
Because I don't remember Ramza flying FFTA.

THat was my first question too.  I do remember it's a pretty weird fighting game from the get-go

I don't remember Ramza being in FFTA at all. But for discussion's sake lets talk about FFT instead and say that Ramza picked up Levitate from the Time Mage Job (alternatively, he's not flying or floating but is Ignoring Height really fucking high instead).

Welcome to Earthbound: Fourside of the Moon. Busted up that Mani Mani Statue, now to venture into Ikana Well Monkey Paradise (Paula's still 1:1 in terms of Kidnappings to Plot Arcs, this is getting kinda disappointing). Also Inventory Limits suck. News at 11.

Maybe her overseas voice will reflect the tougher part.  I'd like to think so.

Maybe I'll be another Ali Hillis' emotionally drained performance (not that it was her fault or anything if KI:U or SSBF are anything to go by).

Black Rose Valkyrie for PS4.

By Compile Heart------WAIT, I know what you're thinking, but the designs aren't moeblobs, and they actually got Kosuke Fujishima of Ah Megami-Sama/Tales of fame.  So there's that.


Not bad!
(well, the part where you play as a "lead male with five heroines" sort of dipping back into Compile Heart roots, but definitely looks different than the usual :P )

So, is this just a mash up of Valkyria Chronicles and Lost Dimension?  Because that's what it looks like, at least.  Not that that would be a bad thing.

No. More like its going to be a mash up of Lost Dimension and any other given generic Compile Factory RPG (and considering just how generic and barebones LD was beyond the traitor gimmick, this is already not looking like anything people are going to remember having played). On the other hand, at least with Compile Factory's track record, they've been slowly inching their way towards making a playable RPG.

The 'Valkyrie' in the case is the same as most post-Aughts usage in that it refers to the non-JPop Idol Magical Girl (the classical Magical Girl no longer exists in Japan; its all Idols, Valkyries or "Subversive" Mahous from here) variant instead of anything Norse or Valkyrie Profile inspired.

Dat setting, though, amirite?  Post-war.... fantasy.... ?  Cool, right?  ..........right?

You'd think that of Gameindustri too or the Multigenerational Agarest Wars, but you would also be wrong. Compile Factory really doesn't 'do' interesting settings. Its all talking heads set against the same dozen or so backdrops they've been recycling since the PSX/2 days with the one or two new ones done per game since (I think they've managed to double their number of backdrops by now). Oh and enemy models will be worse (prepare to fight the same goddamn dragon you've fought in every other Compile Heart game, first as a boss, then as a regular pallet swapped enemy and then as the pallet swap to that pallet swapped enemy; have fun spotting the other returning enemies).

Lets be honest, no FF game is underrated (not even Mystic Quest; there! I said it! Come at me bro!!! (disclaimer: this is not directed at you specifically Artimicia; this is directed at those who would argue that MQ is in fact underrated; they know who they are)).

If anything, I suspect that Anna is going to secretly be beard guy's Second-in-Command on board the Starship Enterfries (or whatever), much like the blonde chick from SO1 or Mirage from SO3.

It doesn't help that she reminds me of WA2's Kanon.

Wait what!?

I suppose that this is the benefit of having Atlus within Sega's wheelhouse.

Snapple juice. I reached max BLADE level of 10 in Xenoblade Chronicles X and forgot to read the memo about making sure to level up Mechanical to 5 by BLADE level 10, so it looks like I may miss a few probes. Whoops. Lol. Good news is I got my main char to level 50 and bought the best skell in new LA so now I can take most purple and blue colored enemies down quickly. Aeolus had it right, if you can isolate a purple colored enemy from his homies, it's a lot easier.

I read some rumor on a Gamefaq thread that there is a mission that can allow you to max out remaining perks (mechanical, biological or archaeological). If it's true and I get that mission great, if not the game goes on.

Tyrants are still intimidating, but if I play my cards right I can tackle one or two. Mira is starting to build up a little better as well, so I think I finally got past the "wall" in game progression.

Your BLADE level only unlocks Field Skills up to Level 4. Once they've hit that level, you can't take that option with Eleanora anymore. For getting a Field Skill up to Level 5, you have to find a quest on the Mission Board called Off the Record (if they don't show up, back out and try again). There are three of them total, each one being tied to a specific Field Skill, and all of them have the distinction of being in riddles and denying you Navigation Markers (aka, those yellow arrows on the minimap that points to what the hell you need to do). If you're BLADE Level 10, then presumably, you have access to the Flight Pack and at least Level 50 Frames. Biological is naturally the easiest since it only requires you to trash some random mobs and collect a few items, with Archaeological and Mechanical vying for most bullshit as Archaeological requires taking down a level 60~ish Tyrant whereas Mechanical has you hunt down a stupidly rare Tyrant while only offering the clues that its somewhere in a White Place and appears only during the Early Morning hours (maybe...).

Or in short, you're fine. Just do the Off the Record missions (with a guide if you have to) and you should have them mopped up after a while.

I was wondering why that heart-to-heart wasn't activating, but then I noticed it said that about Pets.  I love this game.

You don't actually have to worry about missing the ability to haz teh petz either since the aforementioned Affinity Mission is plot required anyways.
