Solo combat is just great. Group combat feels zergy and it feels like it loses a lot. Like everythings there, but there's less of it. Can't counter/dodge if I'm not the one being attacked. It's harder to do knockdowns and such and when you do do a knockdown I can't grapple if another kung fu master or destroyer beats me too it. So there's a lot more 'use my focus dump then my focus builder'.

But I can't stress enough. Solo combat is so damn fun.

I find the handling clunky. I am sure I will get used to it but overall it feels unrefined

Not being able to mouse move is weird. But I'd say there's some good things to be said about the controls, because the buttons do things differently on the situation. My right click is a charge, but if I dodged a attack it turns into a triple kick. On a cc'd enemy it turns into a knockup. It's a nice change from ffxiv, where once heavensward came out it got super super cluttered.

I can appreciate a mmo with air juggles, armbars and picking a dude up with one hand and repeatedly slamming him into the flat of your axe(Casters look considerably less interesting, though maybe they'll surprise me).

I imagine it'll be like GW2, fun to play and learn the characters, but not really having lasting appeal. But free filler while ff14's in a rut is pretty much what I'm after anyway.

Assuming we get a demo that goes to the split, which we damn well better, I'll decide which to get after that. Even if I will eventually get them all as long as the game isn't awful.

At first impression Hoshido certainly seems like the good guys though. And they have the smuggest anime girl.

Xmas ep was funny and '24 years' was a nice twist ending to the Doctor and River without feeling like bullshit.

No, penguin, no! That's suicide! ;_;

Here's some penguins fighting like angry little girls to cheer everyone up.

Maybe penguin bullying was why that penguin went to the mainland to die!

Beat it last night. Definitely worth the slow start, loved the game.

I can't believe you monsters would ditch big sister Schera just for unlimited limit breaks.

And how's that narrative even work?

'Ok, let's rush 'em!'
'Alright!'
'...alright? You're not going to lecture me about charging in headfirst without any kind of plan?'
'Ugh, FINE...'

I say take it a step further and remove the creepy as hell looking girl from the game entirely.

Taking out the boob slider is dumb though, unless it let you go full dragon's crown or something.

Making a slime vita seems like a odd choice when it's competitor gets all the games.

On the fence on 7. On the one hand it's fun, on the other it's really frustrating how you have 5 characters and 4 party slots with forced rotations in a game with such focus on character building and I haven't heard anything about the remake fixing it.

Hitting the button with the sound effect seemed a lot more effective to me then trying to time it with the ! and having no idea if I hit the button to early or too late.

Training chapter was kinda lame, because Estelle's not a novice anymore.
Code:
And sadly I read our invincible friend is just a temp until the third game.

But pleasantly surprised to see I could swap party members once I got 5 people and my group wasn't just at mercy of the story anymore like the first game. Kinda. 3 of the 4 members were mandatory :p

You should play the first one or don't bother.

I'd highly recommend playing the first though if you want a good story.

Am I the only one that vastly prefers Strange Journey to IV? That's usually the impression I get : )

SMT IV started a lot stronger then kinda petered out late game. 3 problems being...

I got way too strong and was just one shotting random encounters.

Inheritance changes were needed, but gave too much. I didn't feel like I was getting new demons, since I kept most of the same skills except for a upgrade here and there.

And lastly but most importantly, 'Oh, grats. You got the neutral route you were shooting for. Now you have to do EVERY sidequest to progress the main story.' And dropped. Though it was already kinda wearing on me.

But I did have a ton of fun with the game before I stopped having fun with the game.

I'm just playing the second game. I loved the first game, but playing it was enough to keep my satisfied for 12 years.

Her persona inspiration looks really weak.

But in a game about thieves I'm not going to complain about someone doing the Catwoman thing. And with the slim pickings for lady thieves it's kinda hard not too.

I don't think the treadmills the problem, not directly anyway. Nothing to do is the problem. You aren't going to mind the carrot on a stick if you're enjoying the ride. But this would be the time to cancel until 3.x if it weren't for esoterics.
