Is it worth playing on Hard the first time through? I enjoy a little bit of challenge, but don't want to be banging my head against a wall.

Ah, glad I asked! Thanks Klutz!

Piggybacking off this topic... if the Wi-Fi and 3G models are at the same price (they are here pre-owned, at the moment) - is 3G the only difference? And is there any reason to not get that model, even if I'd probably never use the capability?

Few people actually stick to their words. If the game is good they will buy it and eat crow.

I think Lard meant it differently than a boycott. I know that very few people who threaten to boycott a game actually follow through but losing interest in something is pretty different. Even if they hear it got good reviews they might wait until a sale to pick it up. Less of a "Stick it to the man" and more of a "Probably safer to buy something I know I will like"

This is my mentality with a lot of titles and series now. I'm very interested in FFXV, but there's no way I'm paying full price on release, simply because I haven't enjoyed the series as much as I used to, not because I have anything personally against SE.

Yeah, though I didn't explain it in the editorial, All-Ages is a hilariously terrible term. I've played one or two "All-Ages" titles that are still very violent and strongly sexual, even if there aren't any actual sex scenes.

I think it's the... Chapter 7 (?) fight against them where it is "explained".

From my experiences, Dark Knight is the most powerful of all damage-dealing classes. With Adversity, Gloom and Rage, outputting massive damage is pretty easy and reliable. If you've also got someone restoring BP to them (Merchant, Performer), then they're pretty much unstoppable.

That said, Spiritmaster is the most broken/OP class due to Stillness.
68  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: April 17, 2014, 04:02:49 AM
Yeah, a lot of important story stuff comes at 6 (and at that point they explain how you can
break a crystal
). I don't know why they even let you do it in chapter 5.

Grind it, I guess, Dice. Level up Dark Knight/Spell Fencer (Rage + Drain) and White Mage/Spiritmaster (If necessary, abuse Stillness) you'll be fine. If it's still tough, setup a Performer to use My Hero (+1 BP all characters) and your Spiritmaster will be able to maintain invincibility (Stillness and/or Enigma) pretty much the whole time.

If you have enough money (and have done Norende) buy the Egg items from the Adventurer too; they'll help the grinding for job levels a lot.

So why again am I pre-ordering a download-only title?

I'm only assuming here, but maybe is because you liked what you saw despite of potentially being a very jaded person? Dunno.

Yeah, something like that. Really looking forward to co-opping this with my wife. From what I've seen, it's like they made a game specifically for the two of us. The story, art, and music all look superb. I still can't believe they're only charging $15 for it...

I would just assume it's going to be incredibly short.

I've pre-ordered the collector's edition at EB, so I'm looking forward to that!

Yes. http://www.rpgfan.com/reviews/Tales_of_Hearts/

I haven't played the "R" version, though.

The problem with Escha and Logy localisation was the inconsistency, particularly with missions. I can't recall specific examples, but I know there were times when a task would require you to "Make [this] item" or "Imbue with [this] property," but the word they used in the task was different to what it said when you were synthesizing. Pretty sure there was one that was completely different (Meteor -> Lava Cube? Or something like that).
72  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: April 10, 2014, 06:37:53 PM
If you're a completionist, you get multiple chances to get every "missable" (I think) - just make sure once you unlock the Thief class that you steal from bosses each time you encounter them.

Other than that, like Greig said, just enjoy!

I realised the other day that I'm now quite a few years passed the average JRPG hero's age. I was younger than them when I first started playing them. That's the first time I've ever started to feel old. :P

3) There are only 5 songs.  Yes, 5 songs.  In the whole game.  No secret unlocks or anything.  It's a music game (sort of...) with only 5 songs...

I had to do a double-take on that. Only 5? Wow... I just finished Shiny Festa (which was pretty much just another cash-in for iM@S) and it still had 21 songs (though only one or two were brand new, I guess).

An aside: Can anyone recommend an exploration focused-game with a Myst-like feel to it? In the mood for playing in a world I can explore, but with a notebook and pen by my side as I discover things and take notes for potential puzzles. No/limited combat would be good. Just an adventure.
