I have mixed feelings about all this. But that's probably at least partially based on my mixed feelings about XSEED. But that's probably at least partially based on my experience meeting these people at E3. *shrug*

I was reading a review for SC, and then it said: "It is no exaggeration to say that the game takes almost 25 hours to get going." I enjoyed FC, but I don't have the time or energy to do a game as slow as it all over again.

I think I'll be getting a 4 anyway, since gaming isn't top priority for me on PC and I do need to replace my current laptop. If you haven't got one by the time I do Took, I'll let you know how I go with it.

Hmm. You'd think the i5 would suffice since, at least on the Pro 4, it's the new 6th gen. But I guess "gaming" is quite broad - if we wanted to play The Witcher 3, for example, then I can see why the i7 would be necessary. But yeah, I am not getting an i7 - the cheapest Pro 4 model of it here is $2300!!

Typos happen.

Fire and Water I find the most useful (as all-out assault and cautiously ranged, respectively). Earth I enjoy, but on Semi-Auto I seem to often end up attacking too far away to hit an enemy so I don't use it much. Wind feels kind of awkward so I tend to only use it if needed to attack a weakness.

A tip for Water Temple I found useful: Work sequentially. Drain the water and start on the bottom floor, going through every room currently available. Then up the water level and do the same on the 2nd floor, then the top floor. You'll have to do a few cycles (it's far from a perfect route), but you'll get there eventually. When you get the piece of equipment in there, navigation becomes much faster.

While I never found Water Temple frustrating and annoying in the same way a lot of people seem to, it's certainly a more enjoyable experience when you've played it enough to know where everything is, haha.

I've only started playing this seriously in the last couple days.  Edna has just joined my party
Yeah, I'm about there too and Mikleo is such a pussy.
Tells me to run at the boss right after but I win the fight instead.

So... errrr... can you actually run from it?

Yes, you can run.  I had to. ^_^;

On Hard I was OHKO'd. :P

My thoughts so far...

The Good
- Fun characters and dialogue.
- Fast-paced battle system.
- Great art design.
- Story mostly well paced so far and enjoyable, if cliche and a bit predictable.
- Good voice acting, for the most part.
- Large, open areas.

The Bad
- The large, open areas are basically empty.
- Weapon/Armour skills are extremely complicated and annoying.
- So few artes, particularly on Sorey, is a real shame.
- Textures vary in quality. They're serviceable, but not wonderful on PS4.

Has anyone played any of the Fatal Frame games? I noticed no one has mentioned them (I've never played any of them myself, but want to). They have a reputation for being pretty danged spooky. Some would say among the best of the genre.

I played Crimson Butterfly on Wii. I enjoyed it for the most part: definitely spooky, interesting gameplay mechanics, intriguing story. However, the controls were awkward and it wasn't much fun to actually play.

Well played, Dice! I enjoyed following the journey.

These are amazing. Must experiment!

I'm enjoying the fact that Zestiria isn't filled with senseless jargon like Abyss and Xillia were.
74  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of Zestiria on: October 18, 2015, 11:28:20 PM
I've loving it so far, though admittedly I'm only a few hours in. There's been a couple of really awesome scenes and great environments to explore, even if the graphics aren't the best.

Ah, I see. Fair enough then!

Experiencing Ciel is worth the trouble. I think it would be extremely hard to enjoy Ar without it - or know what's going on, for that matter. Though I'm sure many have managed fine.
