I just hope that Sony will take some time to address their current localization policies (and hopefully not in anyway that implements region locking).

The good thing about the DLC characters is that if you should be playing on Classic and happen to lose him/her you always have the option of going back to their respective DLC chapter to recruit them again. Of course, they'll start right back from where you found them.

Damn saving everyone on chapter 5 with permadeaths and on hard mode has literally been hours of losing for me... I beat it with only losing 1 character this time and I think I'm going to keep it. Wasn't really going to use the character anyway.

Wish some many peeps, I get worried about who I'm not using. D:
I think I shelved Sully based on appearance.  Lissa too (even though the look of her BFFF isn't much better).
For whatever reason, Frederick can't gain a level if his life depended on him, but he's a goddamn tank, usually killing things in one hit.  I don't get it.

Aeo:  Thanks for the tip on the soft reset.  Given my 20+ years of gaming experience, I don't know why I didn't try that first.... hm.

I benched Sully for the exact same reason haha! Lissa is the one who died in my game, but she still appears in the story sequences for some reason. I guess that's a must, but you gain a healer on horse the chapter she died so I'm good :P

As for Frederick, he is so good because he is already been upgraded to a Paladin, which is what they usually do at the beginning (give you an overpowered character at the start, but you'll soon realize that already upgraded characters are inferior to the ones that get there legitimately by the end).

Great Knight. But yeah, as a unit he'll fall behind sooner rather than later.

Still, he makes for a good father given that he passes down the Wyrmknight class tree to any kid he sires (with Virion and Lon'qu being the only other fathers to do so).

I'm used to calling it Paladin from the other games haha

There are Paladins in this game still (which are the alternate promotion to Great Knight), Fredrick just starts off as a Great Knight instead for full weapon triangle control as well as the skills Luna and Dual Guard+ instead of the one extra move, the lack of armor slayer weakness, and the Defender and Holy Shield skills (or whatever they're calling them now) that Paladins get.

Amusingly and slowly but surely, Capcom is trying to turn this PoS into something resembling an actual game.

Not like it really matters to us at this point.

What I'm reading is: "Our games are totally better than those old relics, you just can't see it through all those rose tinted glasses you're all wearing. Also Nomura is totally a cool dude, stop hatin' on him guys!"

What I read is: "Stop being a dick about modern FF titles. We got the message."

Hey now, I totally enjoyed FFXII (barring its flaws) back when it came out. Granted, if I wanted to play a JRPG that features wide open environments and encourages exploration today I'll play Xenoblade, but back then FFXII was almost the closest we got to that since the SuperNES era (DQVIII was better but I had already beaten it by then). I didn't have any problems with the Gambit system and I enjoyed the idea of not having to remember to steal from enemies when I fight them (except for the fights where you need to steal multiple times for good, one chance at them items) or having to keep an eye on my HP to know when to pop a potion (or to at least query up a potion that'll never be used as I'm cheaply stunlocked to death due to an exploit in the game's ATB (that FFX-2 also abused)). Plus I enjoyed what plot and characters were there (except for the parts and people that were either lifted straight out of Star Wars or the parts that existed solely to adhere to the Final Fantasy Formula).

And who knows, I might also enjoy some of the other modern FF titles like Type-0 and Bravely Default (should Squeenix ever decide to bother getting off their lazy asses and letting them see the light of day outside of Japan).

You're talking about restarting a chapter when someone dies? Just quit a chapter, or bookmark it or whatever, go back to the main menu and choose Continue INSTEAD of Bookmark. You'll restart the chapter that way.

Also the soft reset buttons are L+R+Start so you don't need to shut down the entire system to reset. Also you don't need to reset at all on Casual Mode. Just think of an unlucky crit as someone getting sent to the penalty box for the rest of the map, and failing secondary or tertiary conditions only costing you nice items that you can get elsewhere for extra gold.


And yeah, I said it on day 1 that I didn't like Lissa's design ("What do you have against shirts?"). That said, you do have the option of promoting her into a axe wielding cleric :black101: and her son has superglued his hand to his face like a dork.

"I don't quite agree with this, because there's no inherent trait in the tone of earlier FFs that differentiates them all that much from the newer ones. What makes something like FFVI "more 25+ oriented" than FFXII? I kinda doubt the individuals who "grew out of FF" are gonna be found hanging out on some forum dedicated to the franchise.

I think the actual heart of the problem has much less to do with the age demographic itself and is really more a result of this exaggerated sense of nostalgia that mistakenly causes people like this to believe the quality of more recent titles can't be achieved, when in reality it's their own unique experiences they're failing to replicate. It may also partially have to do with a distaste for Nomura's character designs, and while I admittedly can't blame them for that, it's silly to extend that sort of dislike to the entire game."

If it wasn't for that black out this game would not have been close, but it certainly made it entertaining...

Agreed.  I ate waaay too many chips and various dips last night.  Blegh.  Also probably some of the worst set of commercials I've ever seen from a superbowl.

Yeah I eventually stopped paying attention to the commercials because none of them were any good. Probably around the middle of the second quarter I started using commercials for bathroom breaks and refills haha.

The only commercial I noted was the one for Iron Man 3.

Btw, did anyone catch if Denny's is still doing their free breakfast Post Suprabowl Tuesdays?

Meanwhile, I'm screwed over til Friday given that the whole point of my GS preorder was to obtain a 3DS.

At least I still have other games to play while I wait.

Did anyone ever stop to think how ridiculous "I watch the Super Bowl for the commercials" sounds?  Personally, I'd be more engaged if they showed the cheerleaders more often.
Eh it was less ridiculous in the days before high speed internet when it was the only time you could see awesome commercials like a dancing monkey with a tamborine(sp) and two old guys playing the banjo. Now though? Yeah kind of ridiculous.

P.S. It is the day after the Superbowl and I have no idea of who won. I guess I'll find out when I get to work today andsee if I won any money off of the quarter and final score pool.

Ravens won. Surprisingly close too despite the lead going into and coming out of the halftime. And if sports movies have taught me anything, it's that the power outage was cause by God in the hopes of getting the 49'ers their second wind and a chance to boost their morale for a come from behind underdog triumph story where the fate of failing marriages, soured family relations, and a dying child fan all hang in the balance. Too bad it still didn't work, but at least it made the second half more interesting beyond the 109 yard return.

Shin Sekai no Yori -- I love that this series time skips.  Recent episode has a man with *two irises* per eye. ... I'll let you think about that one (answer: yes, he does come in to kick ass).  This series is dark and pretty depressing, I'm convinced the pretty and giant eyed characters are meant to "fluff" it up a bit.

Kotoura - It's 4 for 4 on good episodes, but I'd regard the latest as the weakest; the bit with the grandpa (while I'm glad he's still a really active part in her life) was grossly unnecessary.

Amnesia - The revelation for Red wasn't too interesting, turns out the more critical "I killed a man" was a small fuck up... a shame because the mistake was more interesting, if harder to deal with.  I like their convenient method for "switching boys".  We're onto "Blue" next I guess (the only guy's name I got memorized is Toma's... he looks the least full of himself, so woo, I root for him! But if the OP/ED have anything to determine the "order" of pairings, I think he might be last D:  )

I never realized the amount of quick 5 min episodes (last i watched was...DiGi Character...like ten years ago almost).  Do they just air between things?

Seems like you're in the wrong thread.
