Thoughts?

Not really going to affect my enjoyment of the game as long as the game isn't effected by the DLC, but I still think it's pretty lame.  I wonder if it works on all characters or just one

There was something like ten of them I fought, and each one had an item called White Charm as one of their drop items. None of them dropped it, and I haven't seen it anywhere else in the game. I finished up that area and can't go back to it. Does it teach a skill I don't have?


Yes, it might teach a skill you need.  It teaches Auto HP recovery.  You can get it also from the Backyard battle arena if you get 3 stars on the Ring Master Battle in Super Heavy mode.

Lost Odyssey is fucking awesome.

Also: Eternal Sonata's giant foreheads are monstrously ugly.


The foreheads don't bother me much.

Hmm I'm thinking of picking up Lost Odyssey since I hear nothing but good things about it. I also heard that the main character is immortal or something like that.


The clothes bother me more than anything in ES.

As for Lost Odyssey, it would be a decent time waster until something better comes out but two pretty sweet 360 RPGs are coming out in less than 2 weeks.  I'd wait to buy Lost Odyssey unless you're not interested in Infinite Undiscovery or Tales of Vesperia.

The worlds remind me of this one inky-type game where you can build structures with inky lines.  Can't remember the name of the game, sorry.  It's still in development I'm pretty sure.

I'll be interested to see what people think of the final product of LBP.  People seem excited about it and it's a bit contagious in that it makes me want to buy a PS3 to play it and Disgaea 3.

No wonder you two are banned.  You're both pain's in the ass.
A good pain though.  You're like the smart asses that make people stay sharp.  

I'm amazed at the moment how Namco Bandai's quality shifts so much.  Despite my eagerness for Vesperia... the models look pretty poor compared to Eternal Sonata...or hell, even Xenosaga Ep.3


Artistic directionally or technically?  Vesperia and ES seem about on-par at least technically to me.  I looked through screenshots of the games and I keep going back and forth between which one looks better.

Oh, and I loved FF12 as well.  The whole gambit thing didn't bother me.  Loved the world, wish we got to explore a bit more of it.

I will agree with the ability to empathise with this cast.  Luke, Tear, and Jade are some of the best characters in any game ever.


I'm curious to see how Vesperia measures up to Symphonia and Abyss.  As much as I want it to be awesome, I just have a feeling it won't be as good as those.  Really hope I'm wrong.

The fact that non-rpg mags/sites gave it a good rating, has gotten my hopes up, thanks.

On topic, I rented Soul Calibur 4 and Oblivion.

Soul Calibur 4 is great.  It seems more of the same, but I'm enjoying it none the less (haven't played one since SC2 on the Gamecube with Link).  It feels like button mashing is less of a strategy in this one, but I could be wrong.  Only logged about an hour in it.

Oblivion started out good, but I'm getting more and more disappointed.  The large scale of the world is beautiful but right now combat just seems clunky to me.  Perhaps I should have rolled a mage instead.  I'm going to keep playing it anyway.

Playing through Chrono Cross now. I wish more games let you run from every encounter without fail, even bosses. Do any other games do this?


I don't think they do and I'm glad they don't.  Personally I thought it was a horrible mechanic.  The game was already pathetically easy as it is.  Even the optional side bosses weren't even in a challenge.

Fishing


Not a huge fan of it either, but in Dark Cloud 1 and 2, I enjoyed it as well (nice rewards too).  I can't think of any other games besides DC and Zelda that I actually did fish in.

Everyone must have some filthy lasers on their PS2s.  I have no problems with loading.


I did not have any problems with loading either.  Not on the world map either.

But, I do remember world map battles to be particularly useless for gaining XP once you get a decent level.  I ran from as many enemies as i could.

Decide on a server yet?  I have no doubt that I'll succumb to trying it out and hoping it runs decently on my machine.

I don't care whether it's Order or Destruction.  Just looking for some people to play with.

    Bright Wizard
    Archmage
    Maybe Swordmaster


After looking things over, maybe destruction looks more interesting.

Still playing TOTA - Some of you crazy fast players will probably beat it before I do. *sigh*
Anyway, my progress:
Code:
Played through the Isle of Feres, traveled to a few towns, now I'm supposed to go to Cheagle Woods for the much vaunted "duel" between Anise and Arietta.
I was stuck in Feres for a bit and checked gamefaqs for help. I ended up finding my way on my own, but I was dismayed by the many references to Mieu Fire 2 and Mieu Wing.  I don't have either one of these, and didn't even know they existed until reading the FAQs. There hasn't been a single reference in the game to either of these. I figured there would be more Mieu upgrades, but that they would happen as part of the basic storyline. Hopefully, I don't need them.


I'm pretty sure you don't.  Unless you want to do all the sidequests (from reading your posts here, I'm guessing not), I wouldn't worry about it at all.

Kids saving the world.  Grandia was alright for some reason, but most games it bothers me.  There was that one handheld Tales game where the characters looked like they were 12-14.  If that ended up coming to the states, which it's not, it probably would have bugged me through most of the game if I played it.

Not really sure if this is a cliche/convention, but it pisses me off when a bad guy just walks away from a battle.  Like in Suikoden 5, there is one point where you beat the shit out of that one really strange antagonist. After you beat him, you just let him just walk by your party and out the door instead of finishing him off.  Stuff like that pisses me off and I've seen a few games do it.

I can't imagine anyone would ever want to touch her

ouch

Beat FF4.  Last dungeon was annoying, then easy after awhile once you hit level 70 and start getting the uber damage boosts from levels.

I beat it early thinking Dragon Quest 4 was out 2 days ago, but I thought it was out on 8/15 not 9/15. oh well.  I have a semi started illusion of gaia save.  I might try to play that.

Just looking at how dead some WoW cities are, I don't blame them for removing a few.  I don't know exactly what they are shooting for though so I can't really say.

Definitely will be interested in hearing some impressions soon when it comes out next month.  I think I'm going to  pick it up and give it a try.  Hopefully it'll run on my pc.
