Actually the reason why Delita is hanging with Ramza is that Delita's family were servants to Ramza's family, however the plague kills off Delita's and Teta's parents and then they are taken in by Ramza's old man.

Anyways this battle and the next one pretty much illustrates the difficulty curve usually found within each chapter. It starts off easy enough and the guests are actually relevant to the battle but as the chapter wears on the guests become more and more outdated due to not being able to gain anything outside of story battles, and the battles themselves start giving the enemy better tools, jobs, and more advantageous positions.

It's your fault the 3DS price is high!


Ugh. More retarded fanboyism.

The most likely reason the price is so high is that they don't want the DSi and DSi XL to get totally curbstomped right out of the gate.

The retard translation is that Nintendo screwed up and its the early adopters that are going to take it in the ass.

I would stir fry my balls in vinegar and hot sauce just to get a sniff of her hair

I too would stir fry Thoren's balls in vinegar and hot sauce just to get a sniff of Thoren's balls.

I mean wait what

I too would like to see Thoren's balls fried in vinegar and hot sauce.

If only he had any. *sigh*

Still no word on this OR Xenoblade? :(

Sadly, no. And at this point I think that Xenoblade is going to end like Fatal Frame IV.

I doubt that Xenoblade will end up that buggy.

In a related note a new Fatal Frame was announced for the Wii.

Video Power!


Yeah, watch and weep, children.  This is what we old fucks grew up watching.

The best part of that episode was that the winner got to take home a free copy of Batman. Even the NeoGeo wasn't really that much of a prize given cartridge prices for the system back then (nevermind how quickly it folded and faded away).

Anyways, you should've shown the cartoon that came with it. Here's the opening for the curious.

Let me guess. The battle you were stuck on in Chapter 2 was at an execution site of some sort.

YEP! I fought that battle over and over and just couldn't cut it. I even looked at a FAQ for tactical tips and still couldn't do it. I simply couldn't do enough damage to the enemy and I'm pretty sure that at that point I couldn't go back to level up at all because a lot of the map is closed.

There's one spot you can grind in if you needed it but it's a pretty terrible map to grind on given the map's layout. The best solution to that particular fight is to break/steal weapons or aim for the arm.

The engineer is a pretty damn awesome job given it's utility and range.

It should be noted that FAQs for this game are typically pretty damn terrible given that they either expect you to sperg out on getting all the gamebreaking abilities as soon as possible, or tell you to sit in a corner and abuse repeatable moves to grind Exp and JP (or in one particular case temporary AT and Speed) in the most tedious way possible.

As for what you should do with Ramza, it doesn't really matter that much. As long as he has fairly good damage output and a reliable means to heal himself for a goodly chunk of HP per heal he should be fine. You could keep him in his basic job even, given the fact that his basic job is a unique and actually pretty damn good in stat gains and abilities (later on). Honestly Knights aren't really all that good in the long run given how much of a one-trick pony they are.

Also remember that whenever an ally performs an action, all of your fielded characters gain a percentage of that JP as well. So don't be afraid to spread your jobs out between your characters. You may really need that extra JP someday.

So.... don't buy them?

I fail to see the problem here.

As said before. That's not going to be a problem at all. (Unless you're willing to import and that's assuming the 3DS isn't region locked right off the bat.)

You know, I came here to post in jubilation of Mega Man Vollnut finally getting a ride off that spacestation to kick Reaverbot ass and chew bubblegum (and occasionally accidentally walk in on his adopted sister right after her shower) only to find 4 pages of trolls trollin', retarded fandumb, assholes taking the trollbait, and a in depth discussion on pets (and the suicides therein).

I'm just going to leave this here and let ya'll go back to your regularly scheduled fanwanking.

Don't worry about your guests. They're both non-perishable and barely grow at all, so if they fall, ignore them (unless the mission requires that you keep them alive).

One thing I will mention is that there will be people who will spoil the beans on everything that you have yet to reach as there are a lot of people who've played this game inside and out. If you don't want to get spoilered then you probably don't want to look at this thread for long.

Speaking of ruining the surprise. Priests are rather pathetic in this game given that all magic is tied to both the faiths of the caster and the receiver as well as their Zodiac compatibility. So don't be too surprised if your cure spells only heal 20 HP instead of 60.

Orators and Mystics are situational but are very useful for manipulating brave and faith.

Aya's Lightning costume changes her voice too (from Siliconera).

In The 3rd Birthday players will be able to get a costume that changes Aya Brea into Lightning. This transformation is more than a wardrobe change. Speaking with Dengeki, Tetsuya Nomura said the costume changes her voice will too. Aya takes battle damage in her Lightning outfit, which, if damaged enough, will reveal Lightning’s L'Cie mark.

Final Fantasy fansite FF-Reunion also reports there are more costumes in the game, which also have different voice acting. Players, according to Nomura, will be able to feel the amazing strength of Aya's voice actress.

I think I might actually pick this game up. Lightning's L'cie mark always interested me while playing through FFXIII.

IS doesn't have to step up anything gameplay-wise.  Maybe in voice acting or animation quality, sure.  Bandai has been coasting on boring, generic combat for quite some time letting the pretty graphics and fanservice do the most of the work.

Somebody here hasn't played Neo yet. Too bad it's probably going to get ignored for more DS crap and then forgotten.

SRW Neo is a very average entry in the series.  No skill points.  No EX-Hard.  No significantly different combat mechanics.  The average SRW (like NEO) is just an excuse to fly your overpowered robots around and smash things while fanboying out.  Somebody (KillerArmoire) here likes making wild assumptions while under the delusion that SRW Neo is not "boring, generic combat".

SRW Z EX-Hard w/ skill points was the last challenging SRW to come out.  Plus it had a variety of added combat mechanics that made it stand out from the rest of the series.

Yep. Sorry. No shiny Quintuple Platinum S+++ Ranks for you. Just gamebreakers. All gamebreakers, all the time.

From the little I've played of Neo it felt a bit smoother in terms of movement mechanics, kinda like the PS2 Sakura Taisen games versus the old Saturn versions, but with the battling in giant robots being part of the main game instead of the side stuffs. You don't need to make revolutions every new game, especially if said revolutions simply involve renaming things and merging the functions of mechanics around (ala FFs VII & VIII). At the very least though it's not like K which was pretty damn awful.

Besides, the only reason I brought up Neo in the first place was due to it being the only console SRW game made within the last three years that I've spent any time with. Didn't name Z since I haven't had a reason to blow a now not so obscene amount of maneys on a PS3 and thus a chance to play it yet.

Also why the fuck are we getting into Z now anyways? I was comparing Neo to fucking K.

That one dungeon in PS2 with all those god damn pits in it.

Turned out that the ninth and final Nei item was with Lutz all along (the bastard).
Bingo! That dungeon(and lost more) was a total bitch. I spent hours with the guide and moy scribbles trying to figure it out.

All the dungeons in that game were a pain in the ass. Even the first one was assholish and cruel. It doesn't help that the dungeons looked more bland and monochrome than even today's FPS-a-thon that we call the gaming industry.

The only reason I took to mapping that was to check if I had gotten every treasure in that dungeon because I was looking for that damn 9th Nei item. After mapping the entire place I doubled back to Lutz to check if I had missed any important clues and the bastard threw the damn sword at me, then promptly ported me to the final dungeon (the bastard).

That doesn't change the fact that a Professor Layton "OBJECTION!!!" GIF wouldn't be totally awesome.
