Future Arc has the best skits.  Try to get them all.

That way is so boring.  I got my Future Arc under 60 seconds trophy as the last one before Platinum, so I waited until after I had cleared Zhonecage on Chaos mode.

It was an overkill, but a good finale, I suppose.  You could do it on Easy mode long before that.  I didn't use Malik, but instead controlled Richard and used him as my caster. He just spammed Shade Imperial over and over again and probably took off more than half of the boss HP by himself.

The key to doing it really fast is Hourglass items.

It has nothing to do with not being badass guy.  It has everything to do with telling me absolutely nothing about the games inside the package, or even catching my attention.  It just doesn't do its job as a cover.

You would be correct, you can't get that without Online.

I never really found it helpful, personally.  In my opinion it's not really worth it other than beyond completion's sake. Especially because of how obnoxiously it fills up your screen.

Playing as Artorias. . .it's like a lore-fanatics dream.

I love Hubert sometimes, hate him others.  It's probably because he goes on some amazing rants about women and children in the future Arc skits that sound just like a friend of mine. I probably laughed at him harder than I should have.

More DLC.

Snow, this time. Probably to compliment the novel about him (in Japanese) that's supposed to be coming out this summer.

Generation of Chaos is pretty much IF's best SRPG series.  The older ones at least were much better than their newer games, with true strategy and lack of grinding. That's not to say it's a brilliant SRPG, but it's unquestionably better than their recent offerings.
I wasn't aware of any Generation of Chaos game that played like a traditional SRPG? I wouldn't call it an SRPG, anyway.

You must have a very narrow view of what a SRPG is, then.  

Honestly, that they're changing things up so drastically makes me more cautious. They might accidentally throw out what little good they had.

Eh. Not who you're asking, but in most, if not all, cases you actually only need one Dualize to change it to the requested type.  If you don't have the right Shard you'll probably need to do some Shard farming (for best results, set to a higher difficulty).

This is pretty much just copied right from the Japanese wiki.

There's also a guide on the Bamco Tales forums that gives combinations, but I don't have the link at the moment.  Someone on GameFAQs might have moved that over as well.

It's a Japanese cultural thing.  Blood type "supposedly" gives some insight to their personality traits.

Also on RPGFan's front page.

Tons of new screens and info today.

I have to hand it to GUST, their character models are getting very impressive.  Regina's (red-head) model looks incredibly similar to her art.  The issue more now is the longer hair modeling, and lack of animation, but that's always a problem. Not all games can do it as well as Alice did - nor do I expect them to.  The 3D backgrounds are cleaner and more detailed as well.  I think, no matter how you feel about the gameplay in the series, there's no doubt that GUST has graphically been improving non-stop.  Very impressive for a company of only 30 people split into multiple projects.

Keithgrif is pretty nice as well, but we'll see how he compares to Gio.

Very curious to see how Siliconera's mention of the lack of time limit works here, because I am seeing a calendar in the corner. Possibly they've simply removed it while changing areas?  That alone would make it much less strict.

Demon's Souls servers to go Offline next month

Fuck, no. :(

I'll have to play the shit out this game soon to see if I can finally get the dumb Pure Bladestone. I need that Platinum Trophy in my life.

wait you can't get it without the servers on? do you have to get phosphorecent pole for platinum too? (can't remember) i wish there was a way to patch it so it wouldn't matter the servers are going down.
 

You can get both offline just fine.  I think he just doesn't want to farm it and wants to have someone drop it for him. Platinum in both Dark and Demon's are both possible with no online at all.

Honestly, considering some of the subject matter in Xenogears, I'm amazed they hesitated with a name.

Riot Peak's pretty easy in this game.  If you die, you don't have to go through all of the battles to go up again, you can just skip right to the top.

Even the "final" Riot Peak battle is relatively easy.  The only issue is that one of the girls has pretty much a perpetual Ironstance on (not as bad as in the battle in Zhonecage, where it's almost impossible to stun her), so it can be annoying.

Tip: In Future Arc, the boss in Riot Peak is the best way to farm money.  On Chaos, NG+, you earn about 130,000 Gald per one minute battle.

More of the Prada pics have been revealed.

I suppose it was a bit too much to hope for a clean-shaven Snow?

On the other hand, Sazh looks best. Again.
