3721  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: The NEW Game Journal on: June 22, 2012, 11:40:46 AM

I never beat it because it got too hard. Apparently, I wasn't "playing it right". Relied too much on Guardians, and my characters ended up way too weak somehow. I imagine I could coast through it today, but back then I was confused because it was so different than all the other FFs before it.

The exact same thing happened to me. I got to the part where a boss sucks in one of your characters and she becomes part of it or something (its been a really long time) and you cant use your Summons because it hurts your character to. I relied way to much on my GFs.

Yeah, it's amazing just how far the game is willing to let you go despite your playing it wrong. Incidentally that's the last fight of disk 3. But you were probably not that off in terms of being able to deal with Adel if you work on respecing your Junctions and stick to limit breaks. Plus I believe you're in a good place to card some high end fools which you can refine for high end loot if you need it and if you've been doing all the sidequests up until that point you can easily just buy your way out with the shop command and refine tents for maximum Curagas or something. And if you've been using Zell or Ivrene you can easily wreck Adel with their limit breaks (hopefully you spent most of Sefier's last stand drawing the hell out of his Aura spells and for Ivrene at least had built up a solid supply of Pulse Ammo).

This thread is incorrectly titled. The 3DS redesign mk1 is a whopping double large not just a mere extra large. Anyways if I weren't so certain that the FE edition 3DS wasn't doomed to be trapped in Japan forever I would actually have to weigh my choices here. Thankfully I don't need to and can safely seek to acquire a 3DS LL with the money I would've had to spend on a 3DS to play FE11.

Edit: I can't read at 2 AM apparently.

How this isn't an FF game is kind of stunning.  I want.. why no NA release?

You mean how this isn't named Final Fantasy: Four Heroes of Light 2, because it is in everything but.

In both WiiU and 3DS flavors.

I'm going to start the speculation at Pac Man.

Runners up: Tower of Duruga character (probably Gil), Legend of Valkyrie character (probably Valkyrie), or a Gundam (though probably a Haro).

Nothing spectacular or amazing but neat and demonstrates the effects of the passage of time on the series.
3726  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Replaying RPGs? on: June 22, 2012, 12:27:24 AM
That highly depends on the game.

I used to generally replay an RPG at least I once but...

now that there are so many games out there I can't even play through all the new ones I want too and sometimes don't finish what I have.

A few games that I replayed recently are Skyrim and  Dragon Age : Origins ... that's about it I think since I got back into gaming in the last year. This is why I love ARPGs like Diablo and Torchlight. to me nothing makes me wanna replay a game more than randomization.

Whoah! Necromancy much?

But not to waste this post I might as well add that one of these days I should get around to replaying DQs V and/or VIII.

Or are you guys referring to deathblows in which case; eh, they're pretty similar.

Except for Fei Fong alpha & omega ying & yang Jesus Wong

Case in point: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sR3wDw6CElU

I meant in comparison to how deathblows worked in Legend of Legaia (or at least lol1).

Plus those numbers have to be taken with a grain of salt considering that Fei was sporting a fully armed and operational Power Crisis.

Futurama trip report x2:

First episode was pretty good, nothing too thrilling but meme potential is present. Unfortunately Bender trying to be the best deadbeat dad reminded me way too much of FFX-2's Wakka trying to be the best deadbeat dad.

Second episode was okay. Not as good as the previous episode until the part where Mars nearly crashes into Earth. At least it didn't remind me that FFX-2 existed in this dimension so that's a plus I guess.

Both will need more rewatchings to determine their true value but overall this might not be a bad season after all.

Xenogears has a combo system??

Maybe early on during annoying fights like the first one against Ramus where due to Miang's heals and untargetability and Ramus's occasional use of his obnoxious counter attack stance the use of combos was actually useful instead of completely unnecessary like it is during the rest of the game.

Or are you guys referring to deathblows in which case; eh, they're pretty similar.

Here's your 25th anniversary special Megaman fans. Enjoy, cuz that's all you're getting.

NOT digging the tight girl's leotard that Adol is wearing for "pants".  Kind of weird to see Adol, a WARRIOR, without armor too (how very JRPG of you, Falcom... ah well, at least it isn't the just a one-sided armor that also plagues J-heroes).

The graphics are...damned surprisingly good from Falcom!

Nah man, he's just showing his dissatisfaction over the whole Trevon Martin shooting case. Plus the tight pants were probably a necessary evil so as not to clash with the rest of his goofy outfit. (God, I miss the 90's....)



we may want to rename this thread Ys (IV) Foliage Ocean of Celceta.

If you have mighty, mighty patience, then Dragon Warrior VII is worth a look.  I say Warrior because that's the only way you can play it in English legitimately. 

...And I'm a little surprised at Square-Enix.  Why haven't we seen a DQ VII remake yet?  It's been 10 years!  PSV, 3DS, take your pick!

With today's technology they just might be able to fit that 100+ hour game onto a handheld and in a reasonable format.

Suikoden 2 is on the PSN?  Since when...

Since Ahahahahahahahahaha! No.
3734  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Okami HD on: June 20, 2012, 04:54:13 PM
On the one hand, I haven't gotten a chance to play this in any form yet so an HD port would be a great jumping in point.

On the other hand, it's a Crapcom game and I'm finding it very hard to justify spending any money on this, even in light of the above statement.

The game dates pre-Clover getting shutdown by douchbag-Capcom, it it helps.

Fixed for truth. (Not fixed for grammar or redundancy.)

Besides, if I wanted to support a Clover game I'll get a Platinum Games game instead and skip the now irrelevant tangent.

Get ready for some tacked on 3DS functionality.
