Ni No Kuni.... I always feel like I'm talking about an Italian-Japanese boy.

My thoughts on meeting the Cowlipha in what was a seriously frightening case of Gluttony.

I'm kinda sick of some Ghibli tropes, they seem to have a penchant for drawing people gorging, I don't really get it.  I also felt weird with her gorging on cheese...made from milk..... and shes a cow..... hopefully it's goat cheese....?....!!

I'm sure her IQ is lower than the average MTV viewer

I hope there's a jump button.  Hate that "press up" stuff.

Already officially confirmed.

Saaay whaaaa

Anyways, yay, may play through it this time then (hoping I get a Vita by then and it goes down in price)!

From what I did play though, it's a weird thing to admit than I liked the faux-Shakespeare from Odin Sphere than the legit-Japanese dialogue in Muramasa.

I'm considering on my free time to go into the Mall I work at to leave a sign on the back of every bathroom stall door that reads:


Numbs my mind how basic etiquette is lost.

Anyways, yeah.  Speaking of that, I hate -- in Gamestop -- when people leave their fucking food on the shelf.  There are two garbages ten steps to the left AND right of our store and we have an IN STORE garbage people just don't feel like asking about.  Fuck people, I hope for a plague that takes the dirty people of the world if these basic things can't be done by a person.

I have never seen someone look forward to working in gamestop before. :P

My life has slowly been ruined just knowing the type of people that live out there and come into the store... . S:

I've got no beef with you updating what good monsters are, I'd rather avoid trial and error myself.

Ni no Kuni

*sniff sniff*.  Smell that?  I smell Dragon Quest all over it!  BLEGH. 
It's a good game (betterthandragonquests), but some parts feel really stiff and compromised of a few poor game design decisions. 

For one, the monsters are a bit of a pain, micromanaging (and slow eating animations for very minor stats boosts), equipping them, and then evolving metamorphisizing them back to level 1 makes the grind of the game worse (made worse when trying to "power up" before a boss still stuck with underleveled yet freshly evolved monsters or toughing it out with a high leveled but weaker monster).  The micromanaging can make it a pain whether to gauge getting a new monster or keeping with the ones you have.  The low capture rate is irritating as well, making a few quests a lot of trouble (or at least time consuming) than it should.

The episodic nature of the storyline is just downright silly and the result of uninspired writers or something.  I'm not finding much drive in a plot that has me doing fetch quests so, literally, story-relevant NPCs can "feel good" again because they lost whatever virtue.  The inconsistent voice acting to cutscene ratio really breaks the flow of the dramatic parts as well.  Made worse because there aren't too many of the cutscenes that are really entertaining either.

The saving grace has to be the overall addictive quality of the gameplay, even in spite of its flaws.

This is probably something I'll enjoy but trade in if the value is good enough.  That and given the time I have free these days, it's not really the type of game I can see myself pouring into the bonus content with.

There's a fantastic guide on GameFAQS for how to grab all the missables AND get Excalibur II in time. I've done it twice, and I can attest to its efficacy.

Also having Excalibur II means you can show off to all of your friends what an FFIX boss you are.

If my time wasn't so tight, I'd love to take that challenge (wait, that's silly, obviously going for a speed run implies it'll be quick so nothingshouldreallystopmeindoingthat....).  But then I'd miss the charm of the storyline.  I'm so sad ATE's haven't come back, they really fleshed out the game better than a lot of the others in the series and didn't need voice acting to do it.  You compared it to Tales skits, but these one showed a whole scene (well; there's only 75 ATEs and they unfortunately end abrubtly after the last town in the game a credit to Tales where they do between 200-400 per title...I'm just wondering which style is better though).

Fuck I'd kill for an HD version of this game

Heck, I wish I was them. At least one thing in life would give me blissful pleasure.
Not that I don't enjoy anything... but clearly not as much as they do.

Normally I'd agree, and while I'm sure the one fella was a minority, I have very, very little respect to a guy who says "Before MLP, I had nothing".  That's the aspect of any fanatics I hate, any of the peeps who take their hobbies to an 11.
