So has anyone managed to play Magic Carta minigame yet?  Considering i had not much of a problem on Easy or Normal but Hard mode on the other hand....

Abuse the Pause function. Pause every second until you find the card you're looking for, then immediately go for it. That should do it.

I beat those three dragons, that counts at post-game content, right? I guess you could access them earlier (I challenged them before taking on the final boss of the main storyline), but that's a pretty bad idea. Cheria was infuriating. She had one task during those battles and that was saying save and reviving the other two AI-controlled characters. She fail miserably. That fire dragon even forced me to use and elixir because I ran out of life bottles! Stupid Cheria making me change my item hoarding habits...

Haven't tackled the optional dungeon yet and I don't know if I want to.

It's the enemies that start hitting that hard, not the bosses.  And the first few floors of the optional dungeon are relatively easy, you should be fine for them if you beat the Dragons.

Cheria is pretty much a must on higher difficulties in Zhonecage, unfortunately.  

An oh lord, if you think the AI is bad during the main game, you're going to be screaming at the post-game content.  There were a few times I literally shook my head in disgust when they got themselves killed immediately after being revived.  I mean, there's not much you can do when enemies start hitting for 2,000 damage even on normal mode, but it's still annoying.

I'm finding Malik's ability to stunlock very, very useful.  His high HP is nice as well.

Asbel is great because of flexibility. Also, Incineration Wave is wonderful.

Hubert is very strong, but don't let the AI play as him; he's too fragile.  Enemies sneeze and he falls over. Asbel is the better choice for the AI - even if you'll get more by controlling him yourself.

Try something about Nall. That's a big one.

I'm more partial to Mad Dance, but only because the violin always gets me.

To me, much of Dragon Quest's music doesn't really stand on its own out of the game. I'd compare Sugiyama to Jeremy Soule in that regard.

In-game it's usually very pleasant to listen to, mood fitting, and whatnot, but most of the time I just can't remember the songs, a few exceptions, of course.
For example, this song literally embodies Dragon Quest VII, despite none of the songs being particularly memorable on their own.

For the most part, I find Sugiyama's boss and enemy themes to be drastically lacking, where field and town themes are far superior.  The only boss theme I'm really fond of from Dragon Quest is IV's Estark battle, which hits all of the right battle theme notes for me.

I've haven't heard or read bad things about Theatrhythm. Othen than the classic "Who cares about a rhythm game? Give us Versus XIII already!", but that's another story.

Indeed, quite the opposite, I've only heard good things.  It sold out of its entire first shipment in Japan, too.

Nah, Gilgamesh should be next. Siliconera's been leaking the XIII-2 DLC for the last month, very very accurately.
863  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: March 22, 2012, 06:14:34 PM
Ah, Siliconera updated that link with English screens.

Looks like he's going to have some bad puns after all.

I'm in love.

Some new screens.  It definitely looks like they took the humorous approach with him.  The way his eyes go towards Typhon in one of the screens near the middle is hilariously creepy.

Code:
Asbel has heterochromia on the cover.  You've seen two characters get Heterochromia through the course of the game.
Richard's is more subtle, but he didn't have it at the start of the game and it's rather noticeable if you pay attention, and Emeraude.
It's obviously Lambda, since you see it in action before you fight her.  Just a glance at the cover shows you that it was going to
happen; I was more surprised it took so long.
866  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Merged Final Fantasy XIII-2 Thread on: March 22, 2012, 08:40:34 AM
He does look good.  Would it be too much to ask for him to have a witty one-liner or two somewhere?
867  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: March 21, 2012, 09:05:58 PM
Eh, I wasn't really referring to you with that comment. I was just clarifying for anyone else.
868  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: March 21, 2012, 08:52:30 PM
That movie doesn't really do a good job of showing the differing hairstyles.  You can't even see Asbel's part, Cheria's bun, or Pascal's braids, for example.

As for DLC - There's probably more, this is just what I got after a quick search.

Also, it's $4 for each costume, not the entire set.
869  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Graces F on: March 21, 2012, 08:05:37 PM
Also, it says right in the description that the costumes are to unlock the costumes early, as in, you can do it in game.  I haven't gotten far enough to unlock them in-game myself, but it sounds like you can.

The $4 costumes are not available in-game.  Everything else is.  There are only 2 costumes per character in-game, the swimsuit and another alternate.   Sophie, Asbel, and Cheria get a third, the ToV ones. Sophie gets a fourth when you do the Future Arc.

Speaking of the future arc, Asbel's alternate costume looks so, so nice with his new "look."

I just beat it earlier today. I have to admit the ending surprised me a bit...

I'm not sure why, given
Code:
it's spoiled by the cover boxart. Seriously Bamco? Seriously?
