Trying to figure out how to reset a GBA save... state on the cart. My copy of Gradius Galaxies already has stuff unlocked :(

Anyway, beat the first real boss in Megaman Zero 1. Feelin' pretty huzz about that. It only took me god knows how many tries. Can you still beat him even if you fail to save the reploids in the smash pit?

Actually, Zero and Warioland 3 have me both thinking about Metroidvanias lately. And why I sort of dislike Symphonia of the Night in retrospect. I kind of want to write about my thoughts on this when I get them more organized.

You can totally kill the boss regardless of whether you complete the mission or not, but letting the Reploids get smooshed will tank your mission completed score (which, in all honesty, you shouldn't give any fucks over anyway since the only thing a high rank unlocks in Zero 1 is a room with a Cyber-Elf in it; and you only need an A rank for that (and you easily get that by acing the prologue mission since only need this until you first access the main base)). For that matter, you might as well use Cyber-Elves since some of them offer rather useful and permanent buffs like extended/double health, subtanks, longer invincibility frames, and so on.

No, Type-0 wasn't mentioned, thanks Dice.
Neither was Ace Attorney Investigations 2 or that Saga game for the DS......I can't remember the exact name.

You mean SaGa 2 or SaGa 3? Because both have had remakes.

[Serious post] Valkyria Chronicles 3, Growlanser 1 PSP, Fire Emblem DS2 (there's a translation coming along), SRW OGs 2 (should be out by now),
and SRW L (I happen to like the series list in this one and its better than K but still made by B-team, no asshat Mist Rex (but it does have the Thundercougarfalconbird original), no GunXSword stomping faces forever :(, and YMMV on Macross F and incomplete EVA rebuild).[/Serious post]

It hasn't even been one month and I already feel like this.
3499  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Classic single player RPG questions....? on: September 26, 2012, 09:40:13 PM
In any event my kick-off-classic-question is this... how long should I train with masters in Breath of Fire 3 before switching the character in question to a new master... is there an indication as to when I've reaped all the available benefits? Any additional "master system" guidance (spoiler free) would be appreciated actually..... I was going to simply check a faq out but I quickly realized dancing around any spoilers there is a fools errand with this title.... at least on gamefaqs.... so forgive me if this "master system" stuff is common knowledge, but I've been playing for quite a while now and just realized masters don't teach the same skill twice... so before I waste any more time/levels erroneously I figured it best to discern the "meat and potatos" of the situation, so to speak.

I don't think there's anyway to look at the master list without spoiling things, so I definitely wouldn't do that.  Here are some quick tips from Kixer's guide at gamefaqs:

-Check the Master List in the tent. If the Master has a star by his/her name, your character has learned all the skills that they have to teach.
-If you run out of room on any character's Skill list, just use a Skill Ink to unload some useless skills. You can get a Skill Ink from any of the Fishing Spot Manillos.
-If you are using a Master just to learn the skills, DO NOT stop training as this will cancel any levels you have built up under them and you'll have to start over.
-If you have any really low level characters, use them to learn the skills. Then all you have to do is Skill Ink them to the character you want to have the skill. You'll find it's much quicker than leveling up a level 50 Ryu.  Or use Monopolize (a master skill) to steal XP from mobs.

Thank you so much for extracting that info for me and thus sparing my eyes the peril of what I may have glanced.... seeing specific characters names listed in various categories via stategy guides and faqs have led to the worst spoilers of my gaming career..... good to know it was wise to evade the guides and this one... thanks again :)

Additionally some masters are worth keeping on your people just for the level up bonuses. Take the first mage based master for instance, he's actually fairly good to keep on Ryu despite the hits to his physical stats due to his boosts to Ryu's AP growth. This is because unlike in BoFs 1 & 2 where AP either went into dragon transformation for a fixed cost or completely wiped out his AP for an underwhelming nuke; BoF3's transformations have both an AP cost to transform and a lesser but continuous AP upkeep for every turn after, and on top of that is whatever you need to burn to use skills and spells that have AP costs. Hence why it's actually a good idea to focus more on building Ryu's AP than his other stats.

You can check what masters give to level up bonuses in game so you shouldn't need to worry about that, and beyond Ryu's surprising need for AP everyone else just wants more of what makes them special (i.e. Nina wants Int, Momo wants AP, Int, or Accuracy, ect...).

Final Fantasy 3 (has English apparently)

But FFIII was already released out here on the DS years ago.

That said, grab Queen's Blade+Gate (PSP). :v

If you meant to write 3DS in the title, grab Senran Kagura Burst; don't bother with Senran Kagura 1 since that's been included and updated in Burst. :V

Benedict Timothy Carlton Cumberbatch

It really is one of the poshest names out there.

I wish it was my name...

If only we yanks didn't associate Benedict with Benedict Arnold (or Eggs Benedict, but who the hell does that?).

Also doesn't help that Timothy Carlton resembles Timothy Dalton, who's among the worst James Bonds, way too much.

But I'll admit that Cumberbatch is a pretty awesome name.

I saw Howl's Moving Castle 2 or 3 times, and still don't have a freakin' clue what was going on in that movie.

There's a witch, there's a war, there's a girl who gets turned into an old maid, there's a loaf of a wizard and his Mobile Castle Gundam, there's a scarecrow, who's really the missing prince that the war is being fought over, there are some loving sweet airship designs, and there's a grudge match between two elderly women in an epic stair climbing duel (best part of the movie; full stop).

Beyond that it's about accepting change within your life (especially hair color), and being as old as you feel (Howl has nothing to do with breaking the witch's curse beyond being motivation for the girl to get off her ass and break the curse on her own; the witch meanwhile falls apart when she realizes she can no longer hide her age behind her witchcraft).

B-but, can I level my cards up to Level 999, reincarnate them into better cards, then do it all over again?

Geomancers aren't crappy and !Terrain is kind of overpowered early on.

I can see how an entire party of them would be useless though.

Plus they're pretty useful for things like the Subsea Volcano where their ability to null damage terrain is actually relevant. Though yes, they suck by endgame and you can't even get their best weapon due to lacking a Thief to steal it.

Blue Mages are pretty useless without skills but since you'll be in them 24/7 you're bound to pick up a few spells and then you're just gimping yourself for the sake of gimping yourself. Plus they have a few decent choices for equips (roughly on par with Red Mages at least).

Berserkers, while one trick ponies, do that trick pretty well (they are pretty beefy at least). Too bad Monks basically outclass them completely before they even show up.

Ninjas are fucking blenders even without any sort of defense. If you want Ninjas but worse, take Thief instead (same lack of durability but obviously lacking in the killdozer department).

Dancers, even without all the gear, can still be pretty dodgy, and with four people you're bound to hit upon Sword Dance or Jitterbug sooner or later.

I'd put my money on Bare frankly. All they have is unlimited equipment options, the ability to use items, and nothing else if you never leave it.

But honestly, if I really had to reclass them into something for the sake of the argument then Berserkers. Better beatsticks are already available to you by the time you get them, their equipment sucks (Axes lose their novelty when FF style Knight Swords are around), and you can't fall back on the item command and the oh so broken option of chucking elemental rods at all your problems like everybody else can (including Bare).

Ha, I think the illustrator of the manga does hentai.

And the author looks to be some kind of Russian Deviant Art-ist if the wiki page is to be believed.

Oh well, at least it's not a Neptunia anime. Amirite? :v

:sigh:

Speaking this is a Squeenix project... should we be concerned about the lack of a release announcement so far?

I'd wait until after it releases in Japan before I start to worry about its western release (especially since this is on the 3DS instead of the ailing PSP).

Star, want my meatballs, plenty of sauce, and a side of hot buns; butter them how much you want?

8/10

You are in the running.

Then would you be interested in my ham sausage, dripping in glaze, and I could throw in any condiment of your choosing, including my 'special sauce'. <_<
Perhaps to balance the meal, I'll even toss in a salad, caked in 'dressing'. >_>
And even a 'protein' shake to wash it all down with. :v

I couldn't help picturing it after... it was weird.

The only thing weird was you picturing it.

Yeah. I mean, come on, he's the Norse equivalent of Zeus. Well okay, he's not THAT promiscuous, but still, there is a reason why he's referred to as the "All-Father".

I'll admit, that is an interesting way of approaching things.
