Yeah, seemingly the only thing that changed from the site before is added animation. As expected, it tells us absolutely nothing.

As one of the five people on the planet who enjoyed SO4 despite its stupid characters, I'd be excited for a new entry in the series, but I'm not exactly sure where they'd go with the storyline.  I mean we have a concrete "end" so to speak, in SO3, and we've already seen the Universe 700,000,000,000 years before the series began in SO2.  And of course SO4 being a prequel as well.

Edit: Never mind. I'm an idiot who can't read.

A few bosses have some moves that they rarely use, it has happened to me before with Quelaag and The Sanctuary Guardian.

I didn't see the  Gaping Dragon's vomit attack until my fourth or so new game. I about dropped my controller in shock; its range is huge.

I'll second that.  The strategy to rush past the dogs is nothing if not dumb luck. If the AI gets particularly clever it'll wall you in you can die in a few seconds.

That said...The easiest way to deal with the Capra Demon is to rush down to the Gravelord Covenant using the shortcut of falling off the edge.  Get the Gravelord Sword from the Covenant.  That kills Capra in 3 or so hits.

On topic: I'm a bit wary of having a new director.  I know the old one is overseeing the project, but it still worries me.  Of course, having the fresh blood in it might do wonders as well.

Ah, damn, you beat me.  I was just posting that link.

The Hell Vine town was very, very interesting. Very clever, and a nice way to spice things up when you think that you're starting to get everything down to a science. Looking back, DQVII was surprisingly good at that, given its length. You think you're starting to understand, then boom!

Code:
The entire Dharma Temple section. Then, right after, the world gets flooded. Then there's the time loop.
Then all that drama you caused through three towns over the course of four people's lifetimes didn't end up with
a "happily ever after" like you first expected it to. Then God isn't God.

...I am not looking forward to grinding for Monster Hearts again.  It took me 15 hours to get the Jewel Bag one in my last playthrough.  Fortunately, Whistle and AOE skills made it relatively mindless, but still far more annoying than it should be.

you call that interesting? to me interesting would be reuniting FF13 cast along with noah and using FFX battle system.


That's the beauty of opinions.

I'm personally not quite sure what to think about this game yet, though.  I like what they're doing with the world, and some of the details sound interesting, but from a story perspective, I can't really say I'm too fond of the direction they took Lightning in XIII-2. Overall, I don't think we've nearly enough information to make any final decisions on the game's quality just yet.

Hell, even Steiner and Beatrix.

FFIX was all about sweet, sappy love stories.

Thanks a lot for the info, will definitely be buying this ASAP.  It sounds like it's exactly what I was looking for.
805  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Elminage Gothic on: November 22, 2012, 10:51:36 AM
How is the difficulty? Is it on the easier side ala EO, or does it take after Wizardry more in that regard?
806  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Elminage Gothic on: November 21, 2012, 11:49:47 AM
Erm, what's a Hotlet?
807  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Elminage Gothic on: November 16, 2012, 08:49:40 AM
I can never get enough of first person dungeon crawlers.  Very excited!

New screens. Purely from a graphical perspective, it looks like a completely new game. Amusingly, my first reaction was horror at seeing the return of those obnoxious crystal puzzles from the first island.

Also, no random encounters, as you can tell by the field screen.

PS: Gabo looks adorable.

So, I found the graphical errors some people were talking about, and, as stated above, they're mostly in ZoE2.  The background has some annoying seams and breaks, but, more importantly, there's one area in the game where the faces/eyes/noses on the animated faces are just big black boxes. I've encountered some bad slowdown a few times too, in both games, and ZoE2 runs generally much slower than the PS2 version.

It's not a horrible port by any means, and not nearly as bad as SH:HD, but I think it is worth mentioning that the problems are there.

I haven't encountered any glitches, but there are FPS drops and, in general, the FPS is lower than the original release.  Supposedly the patch speeds it up "some," but I've not downloaded it and can't confirm or deny.

The artbook is quite nice, especially compared to other artbooks in major game releases.  The CD "Soundtrack" is 10 tracks, and they're all remixed.  That Beyond the Bound Remix though...mmm!
