Time for a long overdue update!


God is this game fun. I spent an my daily hour today just learning about the gathering and crafting systems and I'm not even mad because there was so much to it all. Nothing about the game is complicated, difficult, or "hardcore," but there's so much to it I think I'm going to be sticking with this for a long time to come. My main level is 31 so far and my class level is only 12 because I just unlocked the Hunter class, which is the one I want to mainline for end game content.


I'm surprised it only took me one try to get through that third stage in the Shrine of Scales. The switching door mechanic was basically useless at that point, and the only thing that saved me from the last wave was the fact that all 4 party members had max tension and I was able to spam each Coup de Grace and finish off the two Archdemons and one Killer Machine that had the poor Goddess Statue down to a sliver of durability. Then the boss on the next level managed to kick my ass on my first try, but then I remembered bosses have weak points and was able to take him down the second try. The surprise second boss was thankfully much easier, and even with my health in the yellow from the get-go, I was still able to take him down quickly.


This one seems to be less about the songs and more about the modules. Still just the same 30 songs, but I have about as many modules as there was in Project Diva 2nd and the game says I'm only at 30%. Which is cool, I guess, but man is it disappointing to have so few songs with such a high percentage of Miku songs.


Barely just started it before heading to work, but really getting back into it already. Graphics feel even more dated now, but it's hard to ignore just how cute Recette's sprite is. That little animation from the intro where she's making the shop sign is pretty much the most adorable thing ever.

So it sounds like Crunchyroll and Funimation are *basically* merging without going through the legal rigamarole of actually merging. Even if this results in a price hike, it can only be good news for any anime fan.

Well there is something to be said for simple melodies you can get stuck in your head and hum along to in the shower.

I felt the added bits in Golden watered down the otherwise perfectly paced character arcs in the original.
I felt the epilogue in Golden kind of "undid" all the growth that the characters went through
I hated Golden's version of "Never More"

Not that I don't appreciate some of what Golden did.
It gave us not one, but TWO kickass remixes of I'll Face Myself for the Marie battles.

Am I the only person that preferred the original Persona 4 over Golden?

As long as we're sharing personal lists:

In no order, but numbered for my own sake

I. Final Fantasy V
II. Valkyria Chronicles
III. Shadow Hearts: Covenant
IV. Super Mario RPG
V. Diablo II
VI. Dark Cloud 2
VII. Phantasy Star Online
VIII. Harvest Moon: Back to Nature/Boy & Girl
IX: Persona 4
X: Parasite Eve

Far from a list of my favorite games, this is a list of ten games that I feel are all beyond exceptional and that all offer a unique experience from each other.

The problem with Zelda is that Zelda 2 exists (and it looks like BotW will be right up there as well). While heavily skill dependent, AoL has honest to god stats and ability progression.

That shouldn't really be part of the consideration, though. Super Mario RPG, Paper Mario, and Mario & Luigi are all RPGs covered by the site, but that doesn't mean the site suddenly needs to cover all Mario games.

Will probably make an actual post here soonish but I just re-installed Reccettear after getting bored of Starbound. So look forward to me sharing my adventures in my second attempt to play through that game (I liked it the first time, but got distracted after only a few hours)
38  Media / Game Journals / Re: Retro Encounter Podcast Thread on: September 06, 2016, 03:32:22 PM
Only issue I take with that post is: In what way is Destiny not an RPG sofar as coverage from this site is concerned? If you think about the FPS aspect as just the game's chosen combat system, then where does it differ from any other RPG?

I wish Radiata Stories would show up on PS4 as a PS2 Classic

Isn't moving to a country illegally and without the consent of the original inhabitants and then preceding to murder/rape/force like several centuries of de facto genocide on them the most American thing of all?

I didn't play a lot of the closed beta of Twin Saga to avoid getting burnt out on the early bits before the game proper started, so I didn't realize the game is an MMO with an old-school (Still 3D, not *that* old school) world map used to get from area to area, hence the game's Terracottage mobile-housing system. There's a bit of stuff to do out on the world map too, so it acts like a nice lobby type area for players without *feeling* like a lobby.

Just finished up the last few episodes of Is the Order a Rabbit? And now I need something else silly and inconsequential to watch when I want to just relax after work

I'd want just the Toon Zelda amiibo to add to my collection of Zelda (the princess, not the series) figures. Too bad it's not actually possible to buy limited edition Nintendo products.

On another note, this thread has gotten a lot more intense than this game will probably ever get.

Pretty disappointed so far with the tracklist in Project Diva X. I like the addition of medleys, but the 15 main tracks I have access to so far are all Miku songs (as far as I can tell, the game doesn't actually make that abundantly clear) and only 3 of them have genuinely caught my attention. Sure, some of them could grow on me, but compared to Project Mirai DX where I'm hard pressed to think of a track I didn't instantly fall in love with it's a let down.

I also kind of miss the Sim Vocaloid portions of the series. I felt they took it a bit too far in Project Mirai, but they've dialed it back so much it might as well not even be there (okay, mostly I just miss decorating the various rooms differently for each Vocaloid)

The one thing I do like that others might not be a fan of is the replacement of the usual item shop with a gacha-style reward system at the end of each song where you're rewarded a module and some items depending on your performance.
