Hm... I'm nowhere near leveled high enough to speak to that yet, but I tend to be against difficulty nerfs on principle unless the encounter(s) in question are legitimately unfair.  Perhaps they'll adjust the difficulty once again in another patch to push it back if it becomes clear to them that the dungeons are now too easy?  I certainly don't want to give anyone excuses, but Rift is a relatively new MMO, and balance can be a very touchy thing (particularly, I imagine, in light of all the possible class and spec combinations in this one- I imagine there must be significant variance in group makeup and abilities, even in the endgame).
They nerfed them into the ground to the point you can almost ignore the boss fight mechanics entirely.

Newest patch lowered the Expert dungeon difficulty levels to bang your face on the keyboard easy. This has made alot of people upset since most of them were on the level of being just slightly lower difficulty then The Burning Crusade Heroics pre nerf. I see this as a stupid move really.  What are they going to do when everyone has all the gear? Most people do not  raid so the experts and warfronts are pretty much their endgame.

The original soul caliber was the best. The series steadily went downhill from there . Hopefully V won't be broken to hell like 3 and 4 were.

Cat has drill hair, thus loses by default.

I really have no hopes for this and am rather miffed this is what they chose to do with P4. (P3 gets remade twice and all P4 gets is a "Oh yeah; you still exist. Have an animated adaptation instead of any new material across any medium.") XP Until I find a show that proves me wrong I really have no faith in present-day Japanese ability to tell a proper story through the anime medium without botching it up horribly somehow. And if Sakura Wars New York NY has taught me anything it's that the Video Game to Movie stereotype applies to Video Game to Anime as well; expect a train wreck, be pleasantly surprised if it comes out anything above "below average".

Edit: Sorry, three times. I forgot about that cell phone thing for P3.
Tales of the Abyss anime  turned out ok

I still prefer the originals a lot more  then the  remakes and the lunatic festa osts are arranged,  not exactly what you hear in game.

I can see why you like them I just prefer the originals.

There are plenty of JRPGs competently writtten. Competently translated is a different story.

But wait a minute. For an JRPG to be competently translated as you say it has to be competently writtten too, don't you think?

A lot of things in Japanese just does not translate well into English.

It should be pretty good if they stay faithful to the source material . The high school comedy that the Japanese love and some mystery suspense . I just hope to God that it does not end up being like Trinity Soul.

Wouldn't surprise me, Im still running a P4 3ghz Hyper Thread :p

What is your graphic card? It supposedly has issues with  some  ATI cards as well.

Thanks man, I actually got to play the trial last weekend, a buddy of mine got a similar type of thing.  It was ok, though for some reason I couldn't get it to look good on my machine.  No matter what I tried it looked rather..blurry and whatnot.  Still had some cool ideas though.
Its a bitch to run. Well at least getting a acceptable fps with everything maxed. I hear people's cpu are bottle-necking  gpu's.
569  Media / Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Rift on: April 08, 2011, 01:33:42 PM
It may be lame to ask, but does anyone have a trial key?  I heard they gave some out to new buyers?  I would like to give it a shot before I buy, since I live on a fixed income currently.  If someone could help me out here, I would greatly appreciate it.  Thanks!


Here you go a link to a free trial. I play Sunrest Defiant, but i do not have any low level characters.

I found it new, I played the prologue today and I have to say I am happy I have it and I think i will like it.  I never played another other game from this company so its all new to me, I really like how its making fun of the whole gaming industry - but I dont get all of it yet (maybe lost in translation?)

My thoughts exactly.
There are tons of  obscure references all over the place. Even the item descriptions and abilities contain  references to other games  and the gaming industry. I found it odd how xbox360 is perceived in Japan as compared to here though. I was really surprised at the amount of anime series references they threw in. One thing I really hate about the game is how half-assed the graphic ares. The characters look nice when they go into visual novel mode, but in game it looks like a mid-life cycle ps2  game, and most of the enemies and backgrounds are bland and recycled. I like the game, but they really could have put a lot more effort into it.
