Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.

Rule #2=same as rule 1, but in bigger font and more profanity.

Persona 3

"Hey guys, there's a demon over there trying to...do....something to that coffin which is a person who's asleep in this midnight hour abyss that doesn't seem to end, lets shoot ourselves in the head with our pretend guns and advocate that through death one can unleash raw power...or something?"

What, I said it, do something.

Loving the game so far, but I agree that it really needed a mini-map.  I think DQ9 spoiled me here, but I have to paint a mental image of the dungeon all the time, which is a little annoying.  Loving the battle system too!
You won't really need a mini map, the areas are pretty simplistic and in short supply. You'll revisit each spot multiple times in each timeline. Adding to that the fact that each area is only roughly 3-5 maps long, 7 so far being the big number I've seen (and I'm at I think the end of the game). Now where you're spoiled from DQIX, I'm more hardened from FFXI which has no mini map to speak of, so alot of my running was blind, but even then, Radiant Historia's maps =/= FFXI maps.

Kinda small spoiler, but meh most of you probably figured this already. Always try to do both options at a critical juncture. Yes, you will get a bad ending, but it completes more of the story chart, and it doesn't impede your progress. HOWEVER, when given the option to return after a /fin, find a save point and warp back to the juncture point. I saw a few people complain about it on other forums, so I figured I'd toss it out there. Anyways, gonna go beat (spoilers) now, and probably gonna have to fight (spoilers) shortly afterwards, since he's the owner of the (spoilers). Wish me luck.

It's more than simply re-doing wrong choices, the 2 timelines impact one another directly and indirectly. Without spoiling anything, one mini quest you start in timeline A can be completed via timeline B, and saving someone in timeline B will allow them to arrive for a future event in timeline A. It's just a shame that this is on a handheld system, as with some more power, this whole timeline hopping system could have some huge possibilities, like real impact if you make different choices. I don't mean the simple left or right, left=wrong choices, I mean if you go left, then you either die, start over, and try again, or go left, tangle with the odds you're given, and the story adjusts based on your interaction in said option. It's not a complaint, just a longing desire for a future title like this.

I've been playing pretty much all day today, some 25 hours in now. I love it, best DS game I've picked up this year, and last year for that matter. 3 points for atlus for this one.

30 hours doesn't feel long to me, but mabe I'm just spoiled from MMOs somewhat. 40 hour games are basically an extended weekend for me, so if this is about the same, I'll be done by sunday, which means back to Dragon Quest VI, which I'm about halfway done with, and then back to tactics ogre, which is also about halfway done. Hopefully by then, I'll be ready for the third birthday...hopefully.

Off topic, yes, my my experience with atlus titles may be slightly less than numerous, but the ones I named I really don't like at all. I played a couple of Shin Megami Tensei games, including digital devil saga (enjoyed greatly) strange journey and devil summoner on DS (not so much) and I think a few others I can't remember offhand. I'm not saying all of the current atlus titles out there suck, just a lot of them aim for some lame character design, shoddy "japanese meets american" feel, or try to play off on the whole emo scene by giving your team guns to shoot themselves in the head to unlock their inner power etc etc (I REALLY hate persona 3). Again, I like a few games, but damn I hated some of them hard.

On topic, THIS GAME IS WINTASTIC. I don't get it, I love it and it's just so....simple. It plays well, it's pretty, it's fun, the story is addictive, the time hopping is creative beyond anything I've seen in many other rpgs of late. This game definitely is a must have for a DS owner. Dincrest's review is spot on, maybe even selling it short somewhat. My only dislike is the fact that I can't hook it up to my 32 inch TV somehow and play it on a larger screen. That and I know it's gonna be short :(

Atlus titles tend to be overrated, artsy, and overall shit save a handful of interesting ones.

Sorry, I have an opinion, and my opinion is atlus is bleh 85% of the time. Wasn't fond of the games I've played from them recently.ESPECIALLY persona 3...my god that game hurt my senses.

This game does not fit that stereotype at all.

I didn't know that was a stereotype of Atlus games. What games are you even talking about?
Etrian oddysey, Persona (specifically 3), honestly those are the 2 sticking out in my mind, but there are more. Yes, Atlus is a publisher, but still, they publish a lot of crappy games, and a handful of awesome ones (like this, and the original lufia games).

This game does not fit that stereotype at all. It's one of the most intersting titles I've picked up in a while. The whole time jumping thing is pretty awesome thusfar, and the characters are well drawn too. The battle system is pretty easy to pick up and has one of the most interesting tactical fighting ideas I've ever experienced. I love it so far, and eagerly await my evening time to plow through it some more.0

I'm probably not using archers right. Besides from the guy with wings which is indeed an awesome archer, the regular ones I can't get to deal much damage with them, even against mages.

I was kind of stoppiing using archers to use more mages, but since you say they're so good I'll give them another shot.

He's right. Get trueflight, strengthen and tremendous shot and make sure that you use archers on hills or roofs, if you can. The damage multiplies and magic happens.

My archer can almost one shot wizards now.

Don't forget trajectory, it's especially awesome when you try to shoot past your normal range, as it shows if it can make it.

My archers both use trajectory, anatomy, bows (obviously), strengthen, trueflight, counterattack, and fortify, plus a move I forget offhand. I also worked my butt off to get advanced weapons by doing a lot of grinding. 2 hand bows>>>>>1 hand bows when you're an archer, though on Canopus I stick with 1 handed for the use of a melee weapon (axes). I can kill most any non-heavy armor unit in 1-2 shots in story progression, and 2-3 in a training run (random battle).

One last suggestion for archers is to always stay a square or two out of your firings range. If you're above your opponents height level, odds are you can land a shot from further than the 3-7 square range you're shown. On the last battle of chapter 1, I can hit ANY TARGET on my first move using my archers by firing out of their given range.

As I said earlier...archers rape ass.

I stopped playing this game for like a month to do some other things, and when I came back, I walked into jeuno, spammed a little bit, got kicked out of my LS by some jackass whom I thought was a friend of mine, and neither of the leaders got on in the 4 hours I idled around like a moron in my boredom. My account is getting canceled tomorrow and won't be renewed til I have a decent reason. Also of note, I got more completed in the last 4 months of abyssea updates then I did in the year and a half I played beforehand.

Gotta say, I'm pretty much regretting the amount of time I spent on it now, but I'll wait til the next update or so to finalize my decision.

On a quick note, if you download the game directly from PSN, you do not need to install data to the memory card, it has no effect.
2760  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tactics Ogre on: February 21, 2011, 11:18:26 PM
Archers as a whole rape ass in this game. Especially since you can equip trajectory and see if their over distance shot will connect, and if it misses, use the thing that turns back your turn and try it again from a different spot (since when they say doing the same thing has no effect didn't specify that doing it FROM A DIFFERENT PANEL would have an impact [it does, abuse it]). I managed to destroy some really evil situations where I just missed one shot by just doing it from a different panel and getting that successful hit. Oh, also, archers RAPE ASS.

....archers rape ass.
