the real solution is tag team action ala ffx and xenosaga 2 and 3. i dont want my fighters going anywhere near a magic spell.

Quote from: "CDFN"
For people who are having trouble with the last battles in the answer I'll say it again: block the types of attacks used by your opponents.


There are items obtainable from certain fusions that null a certain type of attack. I had an item that nulled every type of physical attack that by itself made the battle against junpei and koromaru seem easy. With a persona strong against fire and dark I was invencible.

end spoiler

The same happened with the others. I didn't use any guides. When you see a fusion that will give you an item go for it, it will be useful.
Fuse your personas until you get one strong against the attacks your opponents use. Just become invencible and let metis die.

theres a problem with this. you cant become invincible against everything. in the current battle i'm at i'm either dying due to charm or mind charged bufudyne. if i put up a magic shield in an attempt to stop the bufudyne they cast megidolean wich ignores the magic sheild. making this artificially harder is the lack of a compendum in the answer as well as the fact that you start at lvl 25 making it pretty difficult to actually fuse a narcissus. wich would be the easiest way to block charm. also because of the situation you are placed in late in the game simply going to level up is not an easy task.

i dont know how to explain it but i think the battle system in grandia 3 is somehow worse than the one from grandia 2. i dont recall ever failing to cancel an enemy in grandia 2 because i couldnt run over to them and cancel them fast enough. but what really made me roll my eyes in the grandia 3 story is all the "oh the power of love will save us all" bullcrap.

about Yukari. i didnt care for her at all until near the end of the answer. i personally prefered mitsuru when it comes to the girls. finally beat the journey and now the answer is REALLY pissing me off. the increased difficulty really makes all the flaws of the battle system rise to the surface. in the answer i was eventually forced to do the healing myself and have my allies handle the offense wich really sucks at my current battle vs
junpei and koromaru
because metis sucks at doing damage.
2315  The Rest / General Discussions / So...who here still uses dialup? on: May 29, 2008, 01:35:25 PM
i still have dial up but that will be changing soon. if you are curious why i have had dial up for so long it's because i was basically stealing it so it was effectively free. the days of uni duns were great but now i need more speed.

= A1: Unarmed ==============================================================
|                                                                            |
| DMG = [11 x RANDOM(1~1.125) - DEF] x STR x (Lv+STR)/256                    |

After learning the license "Brawler", or equipping the accessory "Amber
Armlet" (enhanced unarmed damage), the formula becomes:

 = A2: Unarmed (with Brawler License) =======================================
| DMG = [(Lv+STR)/2 x RANDOM(1~1.125) - DEF] x STR x (Lv+STR)/256            |

copied and pasted from a gamefaqs faq. i tried thids to since i play monk in ffxi but it really sucks in this game until you get to level 99ish

i made it to the last boss and i was cruising(minor slip up during lovers) till i got to the death arcana. i started to get discouraged with how long it was taking to deplete its hp, and i took a risk that eventually caused me to wipe. i was so discouraged after 30+ minutes of fighting it that i went on to the answer for now >_> in the answer fusing personas without s-links sucks hard >_> i was also annoyed that you are without mitsuru in the begining =( i like/love her :o

i think im around september now and i cant remember the last time my characters got tired. on a side note the music in this game is awesome. the FES opening rocks,and having lyrics in a lot of the music is really cool. this game also has an addiction factor on the level of pokemon D:
2321  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Persona 3 on: May 16, 2008, 08:16:23 PM
i just picked up FES. so far the game made me throw my controller once. i had gotten to the third barrier,and there was still a TON of time till the next full moon so i went to grind and gained about 5 levels. then i said to myself one more battle then i'll leave. then what happens? a monster cast mudo/mundo? on the main character and he dies...... on a lighter note did anyone try to make the main character give into lust in the love hotel and shack up with yukari =P

Quote from: "sandiny0ursh0es"
I never said gender/sexual orientation/whatever is not complex. Of course it is. I'm just saying, personally for me, I look for other personality traits in people.

Being a gay person, I just get slightly irritated when LGBTQ people are attention whores about their orientation and have to let the whole world know about it. I know a LOT of people like this. I get even more irritated when they define themselves solely based upon their orientation, as if this is all they have to offer. I kinda understand why a lot of gay people are flamboyant with the way they act given the history of gays that have had to hide their sexual orientation from everyone at the risk of getting discriminated or hurt. But sometimes when I see a queeny flaming gay at the club strutting by, it's just a huge turn off and it's like... ugh, just stop.

I guess an ideal world for me would be one in which nobody gave a damn about sexual orientation anymore, that gay/bi/straight/tran/genderfuck/queer were all accepted and tolerated in society with attention being focused on other social issues.

my only response to this really is that oppression breeds pride.

and to those that said they need a character they can relate to,how do you think i feel? thats why i prefer characters that are not romantically involved with anyone. also why i was quite miffed with the the ending of wild arms 4.

As long as they are really subtle about it and not have the protagonist be a walking stereotype, I fully support this. It's nice that some games even include homosexual characters in the first place, but if they are there purely for comic relief or some wow/surprise factor, it kinda ruins it for me. I still love Joachim though.

Gender/sexuality is one of those things I consider a secondary (maybe even tertiary) trait. Meaning, oh you're straight? bi? gay? That's nice, moving on! There's a plethora of other human characteristics that define one's personality, so if one were to create a homosexual protagonist, I just hope that the protagonist's gender/sexuality takes a backseat to some of the more interesting personality characteristics that could be addressed.

it can be more complex than you make it out to be.

Quote from: "sandiny0ursh0es"
I think making a game that focuses primarily on the protagonist's homosexuality and things associated with that (gay discrimination, rights, identity issues, whatever) would be really, really interesting and progressive for video gaming, but sadly I don't think the world is ready for that just yet.

theres already some anime like this so it cant be that far away.

i like them provided they stand up to the test of time. stuff like phantasy star 4, both lunars, arc the lad collection and the shining series. btw mesh i live in ohio too and you are right non chain stores dont exist here.

the fire emblem series has tons of lesbian subtext,almost always involving pegasus knights. most notable to me was Lyn X Florina as well as heather in radiant dawn(she even says she joined your party to meet all the pretty girls :D). you could also make a case that there is some subtext between hrist and silmeria but thats a one way street. theres also Aelia in the original VP. i've heard that one of the saga games had an out lesbian character but her lines were censored in the us version.
