Whelp, not going to go out of my way to finish VLR now.

Completely skipping this one. ~_~; Irritating people are even calling it an RPG (even though I know the term is so diluted these days that pretty much anything qualifies). If I want to play KH meets Devil May Cry I'll go play either of those games. If I want an RPG I want something turn based. IP System, Grid-Based, RTB System, heck I'll even take the good-for-not-much Command Synergy Battle System in its infancy from XIII before I'll touch this one. XP

o_O

Implying that only turn-based games can be called RPG's is... kind of archaic, yeah?

^ Congrats on the good news!

I've come to the conclusion that I have an unhealthy (hah!) obsession with health bars in video games. There's just something about watching an enemy's hp slowly (or quickly!) dwindle away to nothing. Part of the reason I started to pay attention to Witch and the Hundred Knight is because the first few screenshots I saw showed enemies with little hp bars over their heads.

This is more than likely due to my OCD, which often manifests in a compulsive desire to quantify everything in percentages. I don't care if an enemy has 100hp or 100,000hp, as long as I can tell how close to dead it is.

I was going to start a thread about this, see if anyone else had any love for certain arbitrary RPG elements, but the only title for it that I could think of was "Your RPG 'kink'" and I don't think that would attract the kind of posts I was looking for.

The Last of Us is definitely an obvious choice. Otherwise I tend to shy away from games that take themselves too seriously, so I don't have a lot else to contribute to this discussion.

Closest thing I've played to a "mature" (by my definition) RPG even remotely recently would be Valkyria Chronicles.

I also just arrived in Florem and it's around this time that my desire to see nothing but checkmarks in the tutorial quest log, and my desire to pay as little attention to the "social" elements in the game are starting to clash.

My problem seemed to be having too many low job-levels in my party at once., so I decided to focus my jobs a little better and it seems to have done the trick.

Yesterday was absolutely terrible for gaming. Lightning Returns never came in, spent a ton of time dying constantly in Bravely Default and thus made very little progress, and when I finally said 'screw it' and played some Kingdom Hearts 1.5, I not only realized I could not remember what to do after Agrabah, I also spent a couple hours grinding, stupidly never bothered to save, only to run into those sniper monkeys I knew nothing about and got my ass handed to me, thus either losing 2 hours of progress or giving up my no continues policy. I gave up the no continues.

Anyone else's damage output take a nosedive in Miasma Woods? Where four levels ago my black mage could hit an enemy's weakness for 500+ damage, now I'm lucky to get half that. Same with my physical attackers. And I Have all the best gear available outside of Norende.

I find Ringabel and the Yulyana sage incredibly obnoxious too, but I will say the banter between Ringabel and Edea makes me smile because it reminds me of a far less boring Edge/Rydia.
580  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, The Last 13 Days on: February 11, 2014, 04:31:39 PM
Yeah, I expect I'll enjoy it.

On another note, SE sent out their orders fast enough, about a week ago, with the free shipping option that it's arriving today.  Why pick anything but free shipping with them?  It seems like a waste.

Well it's getting pretty late in the afternoon and still no package, so I guess I would have gotten it sooner with free shipping than with two day shipping? Wonderful.

EDIT: At least my Collector's Edition strategy came in today. complete with an ultra-glossy slip cover.

Considering the main problems seem to be with the story, and I don't put nearly as much weight towards a game's story as I used to, I'm sure I won't have any trouble getting plenty of enjoyment out of this game.
582  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: February 11, 2014, 12:24:39 PM
The Brave/Default mechanic makes some enemies far too powerful. Trying to do the sub-scenario before the Miasma Woods, and those stupid thugs keep doing Brave > Psych Up > Strong Strike to one-shot a party member for anywhere from 1000-2000 damage. Add in the rarity of Phoenix Downs and *still* no Raise spell, and it's just an exercise in frustration. Best part is where Strong Strike only hits about half the time for party monks, for the thugs they don't seem to have any issues hitting their target.

The Asterisk people are some interesting characters, but it's a shame you have to kill them off to obtain their powers.

I felt especially bad for killing that crazy Ranger girl...but the Thief...

Oh dear god, the Thief. It was like fighting Tiz if his doomed hometown hit him bad.

I just tell myself that he's been an ass all his life and his parents just couldn't deal with it anymore, and then he started exaggerating how long ago it was that they abandoned him.

Have a party in your flat/house/dorm/whatever and tell him he's not invited.
585  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII, The Last 13 Days on: February 10, 2014, 09:03:05 PM
Hope mine comes in tomorrow. It was sent out on Wednesday and I paid for two-day shipping. Basically, Digital River just shipped it early standard and pocketed the shipping cost. Last time I order from that horrible store. If they keep up the SE Store exclusives, I'm going to start complaining loudly and hope others join me.

The idea doesn't even make any sense. Surely the more ways you distribute your product, the more business you're going to get and thus the more money you're going to make.
