Yes, it's 20%. I know this because I wasn't aware of this and was confused and surprised when Project Diva X only cost me $40 instead of $50

Enjoying Trails of Cold Steel a bit more once again.

Battle with Scarlet was a tough fight, but felt much more fair than Nosferatu, and I managed to take her down in just two tries. Then the boss fight at the end of Floor 6 of the old schoolhouse felt like a bit of a pushover.

Proof that Nintendo has always been the more forward thinking console developer.

And the most courageous

I had a dream last night where my mind implanted the members of Class VII into famous moments during the actual French Revolution. I found this strange since, obvious plot correlations aside, I haven't studied the French Revolution since it was a required part of the curriculum in junior high.

All the screenshots that Nintendo have posted on Twitter up to this point has reminded me way too much of Sticker Star.

Well I think part of the reason I'm frustrated is because the annual holiday game drop is almost here and this game is really starting to feel never ending. Combine that with very little time to play due to school and work, and I'm really getting anxious to finish this one. I'm at the very end of Chapter 5, though, so I'm getting closer. Hoping to finish it by the end of the first week in October.

Four months ago: "God this game is nearly perfect!"

Today: "Holy shit do I hate this game!"

Boss battles are basically puzzles, and in the latter half of the game it feels like those puzzles only have exactly one solution. Its complete bullshit and is probably the most frustrated I've ever been with an otherwise enjoyable game.

EDIT: ...Or you could just spam all your S. Attacks making cheap and easy work of an otherwise overly frustrating enemy.

Either way, I still feel like the combat system squanders a massive amount of potential due to a poorly conceptualized difficulty curve.
I can't really agree, though I did grind a bit for gear and levels. I found most of the boss fights fairly straightforward, the important thing I recall in most of the fights was just making sure to have buffs up, especially the defense buff and regen when possible.

Yeah, Elliot's Resounding Beat is pretty much the most useful skill in the game, and when you don't have access to him battles become that much more of a pain.

And of course stuck on the very next boss.

I do not have the patience for the latter half of Trails of Cold Steel.

Wow, Legram has such a beautifully relaxing atmosphere, both in visuals and background music. Might have to make a separate save file just to come back whenever I want. It makes for quite the "calm before the storm" setting, given the obvious foreshadowing of events to come.

Ended my AMAZING (pfffftt) day by sitting on a bag of chips I forgot I had set down while trying to reorganize my room from after our cleaners' visit. They do an okay job but are completely incapable of putting a room back together the way they found it. I have to hide half my stuff in drawers and shit so I at least know where it is when I get home.

Yep, can definitely confirm I am cursed to not finish Trails of Cold Steel.

Finally beat that boss I was stuck on thanks to Ranadiel's advice, then not 30 minutes more of game play I made it to the practical exam. Failed to meet the conditions on the first try, and then the game froze on my second try.

Like, it would be really nice if I could sit down and play this damn game for more than 45 minutes at a time without something going wrong.

I honestly think I'll hate the game but I'm probably gonna throw money at it because it looks fun.

I could probably say the exact same thing about DQ Builders, actually.

As for this, will probably get it at some point in the future, though probably not a buy-at-launch deal for me.

Whelp at this rate I'm never finishing Trails of Cold Steel since every time I sit down to play it I end up hitting a brick wall.

This time it's the boss at the end of Floor 5 in the old schoolhouse. The one that nothing I throw at it causes any kind of significant damage and that can one shot a party member whenever it feels like.

I'm really starting to get a very different opinion about this game than I initially had.

Sorry to hear that, Dice. Always a crappy thing to have to do.
