Not silencing the debuff is just asking for a wipe. That I can understand being really frustrated with (as well as standing at the center doing nothing, but that's the awful strategy some people are told... I myself had to unlearn that one)

No, I know the two attacks. Most of the time I panic when she doesn't show up in the middle and take a while to find where on the edge she is, but there has been at least two occasions where I have been just about 90 degrees from where she is and still gotten hit by it.

I eat the charge. I've been on the very edge of the battlefield long before she charges and still gotten hit. That attack is messed up, I'll at least give folks that much.

The second to last area* in Kingdom Hearts Re: Coded is brutal. There are enemies called Danger Bugs, and where all types of "Bug" enemies are walking versions of the blocks in the game the Danger Bugs are walking versions of these yellow blocks that hurt you and knock you back every time you touch them. So it is almost impossible to kill them without using abilities, which takes time. What's worse is like every other enemy in this particular area, they don't stop respawning. Absolute torture.

* - I'm only assuming this based on the story's completion percentage in the journal and the context of the story itself.

Code:
The only thing I can't remember for the life of me from XIII and XIII-2 was why Serah "dies" as a result of killing Caius/Heart of Etro

6 hours in FF XIII
Finally I have been given more options, the paradigms finally came into play and they also introduced the crystarium system which is completely pointless, you might aswell just have traditional leveling up and call it a day. With that said, I will interpret it as an overglorified traditional leveling up system with a few options because of the different paradigms you can evolve, I dont see it as a negative.



The Crystarium does eventually have little branches that allow you to decide how to level your character, but it's more like "Do I want this ability now, or in six more levels?" Plus it's really pretty, so there's that.

Had an odd experience last night where our healer in Pharos basically suggested we abandon the duty before we even start the dungeon. We convinced her to stick around and ran the dungeon just fine, only dying to Siren and then only twice.

The dungeon isn't hard at all once you know what you're doing. The first boss can get pretty chaotic, and for Siren all the roles need to be paying close attention to at least one of the mechanics, but otherwise I find Haukke Manor to be more of a challenge than Pharos.

EDIT: I kind of want the soundtrack, but my computer doesn't have a Blu-ray drive and that would kind of defeat the purpose.

I do hate when people criticize Necron like it was completely new to the FF series for the final boss to have no other role in the game other than being the final baddy. FF1 did it, FF2 did it to an extent, FF3 did it, FF4 did it, and you could argue the other FF's did it in the sense that the final bosses' final forms were never given any context. Hell, at least Necron gives a better excuse than "It was me pulling the strings all along!"

Sorry, had to get that off my chest. Carry on.

I find Solaris to be helpful to a fault, at least during the little time I spent in the group. The attitude that was coming across to me is "Our skilled players will help unskilled players get the stuff they need." I appreciated teh sentiment, but I left because I felt if I stayed I'd end up having the game spoon-fed to me. This is of course just a personal problem, as Solaris aren't the type of people that would force help on anyone. But I know if someone offered me help, I'd feel like I was being rude to decline it. So instead I chose to join a small group of folks with the same skill level as me to work with and develop our skills together.

In the end, I think it's hard to be hardcore without being a little bit elitist, depending on your definition of either term.

This article has put me in a bit of a philosophical quandary. I always assume I have the opposite problem, that I find it tough to admit to myself when I'm not having fun. I like to root for the underdogs all the time, sometimes to a fault where I simply will myself to enjoy something that I would actively dislike if it wasn't so unpopular.

But this article has got me thinking that maybe I've just grown weary of silver linings. Maybe our community's growing culture of cynicism and hatred is starting to rub off on me. Is it really so wrong to look for the good in games or other media that others can find nothing but faults with? After all, that's why I switched up my career goals from one in video game journalism to one in video game PR.

I can't remember if it was Vesperia or Abyss, but in one of the serving mini-games I was struggling even using pen & paper, and then found out you didn't really have to perform that well to get the outfits and felt like a complete tool.

I'd venture to guess it was Vesperia as the same thing just happened to me!! LoL

I was so happy to finally get another outfit for Estelle. I like her character enough but her outfit bugged me.

I know I've said it multiple times before, but just wait until you unlock all the events in the Coliseum and can get her Magical Maiden outfit. Favorite costume in the game, hands down.

Haven't listened to the songs on the video yet, but seeing as this is at the top of the forum again and I'm busy procrastinating, I think I'll do as Dincrest and create my top 10 list of songs from Project Diva F. Only including songs that were in the Rhythm Game section just because.

1. Odds & Ends
2. What Do You Mean!?
3. Tokyo Teddy Bear
4. Melancholic
5. Sweet Devil
6. World's End Dance Hall
7. "Block Roke Shuta"
8. Urbandonment
9. Time Machine
10. DYE

Started working on Kingdom Hearts Re:Coded again. Was near the end of Olympus Coliseum and was able to finish that up fairly quickly. Then Agrabah was kicking my butt, so I went back and did some "Questploration" in previous worlds to gain another level up chip and some other stat chips. Seems to have done the trick.

The big pigeon behind the tree looks like a skull at first glance.
