I'm surprised a box puzzle game is getting so much attention, the adventure segments must really be great.

There is very little in the way of adventure elements in this game.  Really it just comes down to talking to people at the bar and at landings and occasionally making a choice.

I won't deny that the story and presentation is part of what makes this game so compelling, but don't be so dismissive of block puzzles.  They are well-designed, varied, and interesting.  They require a combination of reflexes, planning, and sometimes a little luck.  I would not have burned through this game in a weekend if I didn't find the core gameply fun.

Did a marathon session this weekend and beat it on normal.  I really didn't find it that hard...until the second to last stage.  Holy crap that was ridiculous.  Weren't even any big puzzles in it but it basically required you to do everything absolutely perfectly or get killed.  I think I died over 40 times on it (fortunately I had a lot of pillows saved up by this point...).

I got the 'normal' Catherine ending.  It was awesomely hilarious.  I won't say anything more.

Anyway, time to take a break from this game for a while.  I have been playing it so much this weekend that I see block puzzles whenever I close my eyes...

Did you know? Mameshiba has become a Nintendo 3DS game!

I want this so bad that is not even funny.

Finally, the 3DS killer app.

Yeah, the game starts out quite slow but I fell in love with it by the end.

My favourite being the press-turn battle system.

And I though I was the only one around here that loved that battle system.

Are you kidding me?  This site is Atlus fan central.

Not that there's anything wrong with that ;)

What test is that?  The are-you-desperate-enough-to-date-a-lunatic test?

Some tests are better off failed...

Yeah, I wouldn't trust the opinion of anyone who doesn't put mustard on a pastrami sandwich...that's crazy.

Improved graphics don't give me a headache after 5 minutes of playtime.  Screw 3D.

I have Battleheart on my android tablet and while it is certainly fun in short bursts it can get pretty darn repetitive.  Every fight plays out pretty much the same way.  There aren't big variations in tactics.  And of course the fighting is all there is...there's zero story.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, Themadcow, but honestly I wouldn't buy either system now.  At least not for RPGs.

Keep in mind if you're planning on playing DS games on the 3DS I have heard (though I don't have a 3DS myself to confirm...) that most DS games really don't look good on the 3DS screen because of the stretching from the resolution differences.  When you add in the 3DS's battery life issues I think you're much better off playing DS games on a DS.

Maybe see if you can find a cheap DS somewhere.  There are probably great deals to be had these days, so I wouldn't pay MSRP.

Personally I'm quite interested in the Vita, but not for RPGs at this point.  They've barely announced any yet.  Of course it's still really early, and RPG developers tend to be slower about adopting new platforms in general.

Selling a new system at a loss is standard operating procedure for everyone but Nintendo.  It used to be standard operating procedure for Nintendo as well before they got arrogant and greedy.  They seemed to just assume people would flock to the 3DS despite the price and lack of games.  What actually happened was a much-needed wake-up call.

Holy crap, price drop already (at least in Japan).  That's a pretty huge drop, too.  I guess the system really isn't selling like they want it too.

Finally got my hands on my copy.  Amazon was nice enough to mail it next day air at no extra cost, I guess implicitly acknowledging their screw-up.

Random Encounters are just not necessary anymore.  The reason they exist is due to technology limitations back in the day. Now it should be enemeies on screen like Tales, Arc Rise Fantasia, etc.

Rubbish. Random encounters = being ambushed.

There's nothing quite like the adrenaline rush of being stuck in a dungeon with low HP and MP, or maybe just half your party alive and not knowing whether you'll make it out of there without running into a group of your most hated monster types.


yeah until that situation causes you to get game over and frustration sets in....

It's called challenge.  If you don't ever get a game over then the game is too easy.

I just happened to look at your post count Jubby, and was thinking to myself, "How the heck does that guy have that many posts already?  Isn't he new?".  Then I actually read the post, and it all made sense.
