When in DDS2 do I encounter Abaddon? All this talk about him makes me wonder what this fight is going to be like.

Off to start a game of DDS2.

Will start DDS2 tomorrow.

I'm at, apparently, the second last boss in DDS. This dungeon is HUGE. I teleported the hell out of there to find a vendor, and damn - I made 1.3 million Macca off those cells, holy shit.

Need a break before I go beat the game though.. I spent all day playing. :P

I must say that a good story MUST have both good characters and well-constructed situations. Themes portrayed by these characters and the situations they are in are also very important. It's the whole package that matters or else the quality of the story would be hindered.

In the case of Xenosaga, I really liked the story. By no means is it perfect, because a lot of the most important plot points are crammed and resolved at light-speed and without much fleshing out at the very end of the last episode. It really felt like the series should have spanned six episodes instead of three. But the overall themes and the characters were quite endearing, even if they're still plagued by the overdramatic characterization and self-importance that is quite common in both JRPGs and anime. And speaking of anime, here's the thing: I really liked Xenosaga, but I can't stand Evangelion. So, where does that leave me in regards to this?   

Last I checked, Xenosaga's director wasn't in a mental institute when the last episode came out. There's that, for starters. And XSIII is probably much less retarded than oh, the last ep or two of EVA.

But I never got to III so what do I know!

You distribute his stats yourself though, so he can grow either way. I taught him most ice, quite a lot of fire (so far) and basic healing. Since I ditched Heat, I needed someone to have STR, I have Serph's magic and strength about equal. Plus I like everyone to have decent Hunt skills, even if their STR blows (I'm looking at you Cielo)

I paid 44+ shipping. The EBs here don't have it/never got the re-issue.

Well, it was more like 57 in the end, but eh. I justify it by recalling that I spent 40 Canadian tops on Nocturne and DDS2 each.

Yeah, they're physical. And really useful. I plan on teaching him the last Ice one after whatever the hell he's learning now. I may have ditched Heat a couple dungeons ago, oops.

I uh... never got a red key either. Or green! Fuck.

Ah yeah. I have the spyglass. Very useful indeed even if I forget about it half the time.

I hate escaping from battles though. Dunno why. Too much pride or something :P
2918  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Super Game Journal Turbo II - The New Challengers on: August 09, 2009, 03:49:12 AM
That can make it hard for some people. But you're right, the battles can be really easy or kick your ass real quick. Plus you can learn Void Death, and Gale comes withit. A lot about DDS is trial and error from the dungeons to the enemies. I've probably died a hundred times (or two) but I figure if I give up now, what the hell did I pay $60 for? :P

From what I hear, DDS2 provides much more of the games' plot. Hence my wanting to play it as soon as I'm finished with the first one.

Anyway,.. I'm near the end. The temple is HUUUUGE. I've spent HOURS in it, deaths aside. In the process, I made Serph something of a badass. I taught him Cruel Leader, and War God (Executioner and Revelation oh yes please), and even though I have yet to teach him the last Ice mantra, he's doing well. :P

There was an episode of The Simpsons when Homer becomes an ordained minister thanks to the Internet and marries anyone to anything, like the sailor guy to his ship's figurehead/"hood ornament." 

Yeah, once again something ridiculous in real life reminds me of an episode of South Park or The Simpsons. 

I recall Peter marrying a piece of pie in Family Guy and eating it seconds later.

Kyuusei: I had the same problem.  I was stuck on Catoblepas for some time before I realized that.  I kept looking for a Null Petrify or for it to be listed under one of the status ailment null skills.
Yep. I was doing the exact same thing when looking at skills and mantra - looking for a Null Petrify.

And eventually it occurred to me that since Void Death nulls curses, let's see if it can null petrification too! And it worked. DURR.

I am now inside the temple. Beat one boss so far.

Hmmm... Digital Devil Saga is cheap again at Amazon! I finally got me a copy.
Good idea. Get the second if it's on sale too - or when it goes on sale. They really are two halves of a whole as I'm in the process of finding out.
2922  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Super Game Journal Turbo II - The New Challengers on: August 08, 2009, 05:54:20 PM
Still, the plot thickens in DDS.

What plot?

I need to get to DDS2 and find out.
Yeah, that's kinda the point. The plot won't mean much when you only get through half of it (DDS1).

PS. before I beat Varin last night, it didn't quite click that Void Death included nullifying petrify spells. Duh. Hence I was stuck for a while on one of the other Brutes bosses.

Boy did I feel dumb after.
2923  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Think you had a bad day? on: August 08, 2009, 04:22:40 PM
Some months ago after being essentially laid off, I had a nosebleed. Well, that's nothing new with me. Except it wouldn't stop for hours and it was, while sparing the details a heavy nosebleed. I ended up having my mom take me to the hospital at something obscene like 3:30 in the morning. They cauterized it but didn't pack it. So it bled AGAIN the next morning seeing as I woke up and immediately spat up blood. So back to the hospital, where this time I wound up fainting from such low blood. :P But hey, I got to lie ona gurney because of it, but even then I was in the waiting room for hours until they finally did it right this time. The packing hurt like a bitch and I was stuck with it for two days, making eating, sleeping and basically everything else a pain.

But at least I don't have nosebleeds anymore. :P

Well damn.

Not that I have anything against Oregon, mind you. It's very nice (at least in its present state, can't exactly comment on post-apocalyptic Oregon :P). Just it's a bit of change from a, well, junkyard.

Still, the plot thickens in DDS.
2925  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Super Game Journal Turbo II - The New Challengers on: August 08, 2009, 01:39:03 PM
kyuusei, here's a single super-mindfuck spoiler about DDS2 if you wanna read it and be confused.

Code:
DDS2 takes place in Oregon.
Good one!

Wait.. you ARE kidding, right? :P
