Save Nanami, "Best" Ending
- Gather the 108 Stars of Destiny before choosing to invade Rockaxe.
- Nanami must have a total DEF value of 121 or greater (you can use equipment to boost her DEF)
- You must select either dialogue option when she is deflecting the arrows; there is a time limit for this dialogue selection.
- You must get the "best" ending, which consists of not entering the meeting room in your castle but instead going to Tenzan Pass to meet Jowy at the place the friends swore to wait for each other if separated. Do not defeat Jowy in the duels he forces upon Riou, and when he tries to give you his true rune, keep rejecting it. Eventually, the end sequence will start.

Oh yeah, I was definitively on the right track there. It's all so obvious...
Was this a trick to sell the game guide or what? I mean seriously? This is retarded and the development team should be punted.
I don't even know why some game still possess dick moves like this. If you need a guide to discover the different endings (as in impossible by yourself) something is seriously broken.

VP1 was pretty brutal for that too.
Radiant Historia, fortunately the time travel mechanism is wonderful against this, but some of the sidequests are a pain to figure out where to go.  I won't lie I've been using a guide - mainly so I don't have to backtrack too much (I'm already over-levelled...).

I hate those "website only" secrets, the ones you would have NEVER gotten through common sense or whatever.  Y'know, the ones that involve talking to a corner or something.

Hard mode sounds neigh unplayable then; as there's some battles I've encountered in Normal mode I cannot imagine being beatable if that increase in enemy power holds constant. The tutorial battle for Purging comes to mind; as that boss-like enemy has a ton of HP and takes absolutely 0 damage from your physical attacks; while still slinging out nice shots of its own.

Add to the calculation that the AI doesn't seem very good at defending and drops just as fast if not faster than the player controlled character...

I'm still a pussy to do the top-tier levels of Star Ocean games...  I did Abyss' for a bit, it was easy enough, just boring when (same with AT3 here), you deal next to nil damage.

Fuck with me, that just doesn't look right for a hard mode - IIRC he said that was a tutorial battle too!!!

For Suikoden V, I suggest using a guide while you play.  I actually did and was able to get all the stars, but I was still a nervous wreck even following the guide that I'd lose one of stars in battle or something.  Luckily, that didn't happen.  I highly recommend using this site: http://www.suikosource.com/games/sod.php?pf=S5.  They even have a walkthrough that will tell you where you need to pick up the stars.

Nice site, it's showing me I missed about 5 or so stars already in my Suikoden 2 game...
-_-#

Yeah..... happened to me.  I was on a roll... missed one.  No save.  BOO.  Nanami wasn't happy.  Hur hur.

Shame the battle system isn't that good - people here know (maybe) I love real-time battles, keeps your mind more active than any turn-based title.  Shame this one isn't all that good... real shame. =(


Actually as a stand alone real-time battle system; it's not bad. Sort of "Tales of..." light. The only reason I'm terribly critical of it is it has to live up to the unique systems AT and AT2 created before it. Compared to those it's a let down; without comparing it though...*shrugs* I'd say it's not the worst RTB I've ever touched.

I appreciate it, but you're kinda bias to begin with (arguing for it even before release; then again, I'm sure I'd juin to defend SO4 again if the time came for it again).  But I do like the feedback, and so quickly.  I may give it a shot; again when it's cheap-cheap-cheap.  I loved Ar Tone 2's system a helluva lot (the rest of the game, and actual LACK of emphasis on the battle system was a disappointment).
Ar Tone to me has always been a weird series; the adopted kid who's a bit strange, but different and fantastic, but has trouble finding a home with people because it is different and strange (and, adopted kid analogy aside, lacks polish).

OOOOOOoohhhh my god.  PLEASE do me the favour and listen to this for AT LEAST the 30 seconds after I linked it to (which is 2-2:30 mark).  I don't know who she is, I pray not an up-and-coming, she's a bloody monotone.  But wow, those lyrics.  Me, me, me, so excited about this.

Oh, God!  Literally...!  Love it!!!  I have a similar, but meant to be less funny.... it's more extremely reasonable and thoughtful (I found it funny for how unbiased it is):


The middle being a favorite... go kanada

And now a whole bunch of other shit, then I'm tapped out - so COMMENT so I can care to scout more...[? is that too needy to ask?]


As a dog-person, this makes me want another dog to replace my dog by that dog by tomorrow.


I used this as a Facebook picture for a while; it met with mixed reviews.


I'd see this in theatres until it comes out on DVD; then I'd buy it.


I WANTED to make this a Facebook picture, for being ill-arious, but my boss is also on Facebook...soooo...


I posted this...once upon a time ago... deserves to be loved again, especially here.

Can't argue against 999 or Lufia, but I've played Disgaea DS, and I liked it a ton.  (http://www.rpgfan.com/reviews/disgaea-ds/index.html)

Pat gave Rhapsody an Editor's Choice award, so you probably can't go wrong with it either.

On the other hand, we had two reviews of Re: Coded, and neither of them is very good.  Knights... well, I played the PSP version, and it was bad.  The DS version is reportedly better, but I don't think it's as good as the 999, Lufia, or Disgaea.

I'm more impressed that a "musical RPG" gets as much esteem as it does on a predominately male-occupied forum.
Im a girl who grew up on Disney and the idea of "being a little princess", yet still found Rhapsody cheesy.

In terms of NDS games, I'm sure there's a few better available than the lot you singled out... but I guess it depends on what you've already played.

Any more impressions here??

Shame the battle system isn't that good - people here know (maybe) I love real-time battles, keeps your mind more active than any turn-based title.  Shame this one isn't all that good... real shame. =(

I'd pick this up if... IF I found it cheap.  A shame though, because NISA games are kinda hard to come by unless it's a Disgaea title and 8 prints have been made of the same first PS2 title...

I really loved this video, I especially love the crowds reaction. It's very sweet


http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/03/15/transgender-thailands-got_n_836048.html

Haha even given the heads up of what happens, I still got shocked when it *did* happen! xD
Crowd loved it - and I think that's a helluva talent.  Sure works to avoid paying for a male/female duet. :D

If you played the game you need to watch this.

Oh man that cracked me up.  Kudos to the game doing a good job of it, but the player's experience is sometimes..."that" fluid.

Official website just went live

Haha I love the 1940's kind of "up in air" design. x)

It's Suikoden.

Also, the story is very good - it just takes a while to get going.

And the music is excellent.

You'll also likely accumulate five gameplay hours to loading times
8248  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Suikoden Topic on: March 15, 2011, 09:31:22 AM
Seems like Konami could be interested in putting out Suikoden VI possibly by 2012. I remember Konami on Facebook said something like "We are not at the moment making a new Suikoden game but we would like to hear your opinions on the series."

I'm not sure what about that quote would make you think they plan on putting out another Suikoden anytime soon, all it says is that they're not making one right now.

Wishful thinking, goddammit!! Wishful.  Thinking.  >={

That girl is one twisted human being.  She explains that she was just trolling the whole time in this vid.  I believe her entire YouTube profile is devoted to her sick sense of humor.

Anyway, my condolences to all who've lost loved ones in Japan.  Things are not looking good right now with that nuclear reactor.  This incident has surpassed Three Mile Island.

I'll let it slide then - toss it to the fact she's a troll (or just received a ton of death threats).
One of her videos asks aethetists: "If god doesn't exist; who wrote the bible? Think about it"
If anyone is retarded enough to seriously ask that I'd hope she was a troll.....good grief.

Thanks for the link - everything reported has been pretty inconsistent.
