Wow are the sub-scenarios in Chapter 2 DARK. The entire Rose Legion is just positively unsettling. It makes for interesting story telling, I'm just surprised they went for this tone.

Finally defeated the summoner, and didn't even need to grind any more. I just really need to get better at taking advantage of Default, since that's what won the battle for me. Defeated the Ranger afterwards without a single problem.

I feel like I'm getting stuck in this game every other day and it's not very encouraging.

This time it's that summoner. Did a bunch of grinding and I'm still dead as soon as she starts summoning her allies. The archer takes way too many hits to go down, even spamming Thundara doesn't take her down fast enough. So the Summoner uses her summon, and then whatever the help uses kills off whoever they hit.

"It's almost 6 AM, you know what that means."
"I just wanted to warn you that 6 AM is approaching."
"Remember at 6 AM you have to return to the Ark no matter what."
"6 AM is coming up fast!"

>_>


Also, I didn't mind Majora's Mask because it was simple enough to reset to the first day, unlike in this game where you start with 6 days and have to extend it into a full 13 days to beat the game.

So, uh... two things that intimidate me in video games is too much freedom and calendars/clocks. So to say this game is a bit stressful for me is an understatement (and yes, despite what that creator said in that interview I can't remember, the clock *is* pretty intimidating).

I can't say I don't like the game though, the schema system is all kinds of fantastic, and I love exploration. I just really wish the clock ticked a little slower than it does. Especially when that blabbermouth Hope starts talking and I'm trying to pay attention to what he's saying only to waste 40 minutes to hear him wax inane.

Surprised Shadow Hearts hasn't been mentioned. Joachim and To the New World excluded.

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.
