And here I did DDS first because a) there's two DDS games and b) people said they're easier than Nocturne. :P

Well whatever. In any case, 'Chinese' covers all of those diale--- languages, and whatever you want to call them, there's still a hell of a lot of speakers as a whole.

I made the right choices to at least get the normal ending on my own, then got a tip on the boards to get the true ending.

P3 felt easy (generally) to me but uh.. that's why I'm going to do hard mode next time? :D And maybe it feels that way because I've died 100 times in DDS in comparison?

Gen: no worries. He is an interesting character, sure he pisses me off (story-wise.. meaning the writers did their job), wish he was more useful in battle. I try to use everyone but using Serph, Gale and Argilla gives me the most balance so far. Have gotten away with lots of physical attacks too (yes alongside exploiting magic weaknesses), so long as as I'm not using Cielo to do so. His strength stat is atrocious. :P

Mesh, you'd be surprised how many places you'd hear Chinese, even if it's not necessarily in your own area. Chinese also has quite a few dialects too (though  how often do you hear one that's not Cantonese or Mandarin outside China?).

I die plenty in DDS1... I caved and bought a guide for Nocturne, just in case. :P

Honestly.. when you point out difficulties in PERSONA 3 (another thread), I have to wonder.
2945  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: August 06, 2009, 10:42:59 AM
I was agreeing with you.

Unfortunately we can't control Junpei completely, but we can control Heat. Hell, I've barely used Heat lately, and have since taught Serph fire spells :P

Reminds me of that guy who had a car fetish.

The song is good, yes.

I got to the northern part of the sewer. Swimming thing was a tad annoying. Still getting my ass kicked a lot.

I never played P3 before FES came out so I know zero firsthand about the differences between the two, I got that info secondhand :P

Heat's magic sucks. I just let him do physical anything.

Digital Devil Saga: Heat pisses me off.

And so do sewer dungeons. Fuck.

I'm sure Junpei has cast Fire Break also. In fact, I'm going to take out DDS just to find out. ...Junpei has Fire Break in my save, while Koromaru doesn't. :P

I actually didn't do it all that much, it was in some random battle(s) and I already had him in my party. If I was doing it, it was probably because his physical stuff AND his fire stuff really were both useless for whatever reason. Honestly, it was months ago, so whatever.

Although *who* learns Fire Break might be different in Persona 3 than in Persona 3: FES. Wow, random change much?
2951  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Most Annoying Playable Character on: August 05, 2009, 08:43:46 PM
I do remember a lot of people getting annoyed with Teddie in Persona 4 regarding his un-bear-able puns and jokes.

But I found him alright though.
It came and went with me. Sometimes he really was unbearable (especially as support) but I really adored him in some scenes, especially if they involved Nanako.

I realize that the 'Cloud having no personality' thing is intentional, but it doesn't stop me from loathing him. He might actually be one of my most hated protagonists. :P

I do have to agree with Shinra being a rather realistic villain, though.

I actually liked Fei from Xenogears. Okay, I didn't like that he was like 'I DON'T WANT TO FIGHT :(' for a while but hey, it was different than every other protagonist ever going 'OKAY LET'S FIGHT' like five minutes into the game :P Otherwise, I liked him, his background, etc etc.
2953  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: August 05, 2009, 08:33:35 PM
I rarely had issues with AI in Persona 3. When I did, it was against Nyx when he had that shield thing up and you could hit it and die (EVEN WHEN BEING TOLD TO HEAL/SUPPORT WTF), and I bailed all their dumb asses out with Samarecarm. :P You're right, they did use less buff/debuff spells as the game wears on but if you want them to use one so bad, Heal/Support's enough for a turn. If I left them on Heal/Support, it's just because I don't want them to attack. :P

Besides that, the MC can easily have all the Break spells handy. If I really want Junpei involved, I'd cast Fire Break myself, although he did it on his own a lot. (I'm sure that a high enough level Akihiko must have learned Electric Break at SOME point, otherwise that would be kind of ridiculous.

Maybe it's because I juiced my personae with all those damn cards/cups/wands etc but my MC always went first among the party, unless he had some ailment or other. OKAY NEVERMIND Gen covered this apparently :P

 But for most of the time, I let them Act Freely and I rarely, if ever found Persona 3 difficult.

Then again, I didn't get into Tartarus' basement...

...what? I hear Nocturne is pretty damn hard overall. :P

As for DDS, we'll see when I get through both games. I hear the end boss in 2's a pain though :P

As for P4, the first couple bosses are a HUGE pain. Even with a guide. And I have to concur that just getting the game's true ending was pretty damn ludicrous.
2955  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Best Upgrade systems in RPGs? on: August 05, 2009, 11:06:07 AM
I dunno about you, but I kind of expected DDS to be more dark and not like, Persona 4-colorful. You're in a post-apocalyptic world, how rainbowy is that gonna be?

I like the mantra grid so far because it makes sense. Plus it makes it easier for characters who are weak to Fire (for example...) learn Void Fire etc.

I find that I can die really easily to new enemies, yes. After a death or two I realize what they're weak/immune to, but yeah, still annoying. :P
