Yeah, I agree.

Now then, on the opposite end of the "awesome loot and character building and skill system" spectrum... there is this little game I can't stop playing called PATH OF EXILE.

Vita is off to a good start this year. This is how it began with 3DS.

What was the last soundtrack Mitsuda did before Soul Sacrifice? I haven't heard about him in a while...

He was part of Kid Icarus, some soccer game, Play for Japan, and some other stuff.

I'm not much into Monster Hunter but I'm looking at Soul Sacrifice with an open mind.
I like this idea in those Monster Hunter type games, just there is something in MH which feels nice but at the same time doesn't.

The total lack of a plot of characters seem to be fixed. They don't have to be an over dramatic FF story, just a background story like Demon's/Dark Souls, even if you don't understand much at the end, just put something so I can pretend I made a difference.

Another thing is this game has mages! Don't take me too serious here but anytime given the option I will play a magic type chacter, and since there are a ton of ways to approach and a ton of magic, I'll probably be able to do a mage type character.

Anyway, after seeing the Soul Sacrifice Review Type Thing (Japanese Playstation Network Demo) I'm much more excited fot it!!!

I agree. I'm all mage, all the time. Also this game has a Mitsuda OST so I must own it, no matter what.

Also, I hope the Vita can turn it around this year. The 3DS did it-- all it will take are some good games and some price drops on the hardware.

Localization due April 30th.

Mitsuda involves with music.

Bought.

I like both styles, but if ATE's were POSSIBLE to be done in that quantity, I wouldn't complain. :D

There's a fantastic guide on GameFAQS for how to grab all the missables AND get Excalibur II in time. I've done it twice, and I can attest to its efficacy.

Also having Excalibur II means you can show off to all of your friends what an FFIX boss you are.

Isn't it 12 hours? 8 hours just sounds ridiculous. Cur scenes alone are about that long haha.

I'm not sure, I always just opened the disc tray to skip them lmao.
1134  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: A Step Back: Final Fantasy IX on: January 28, 2013, 07:33:06 PM
Yeah, play it blind. There are missables, but don't ruin the magic with a guide. If you're super OCD about those, you can play again :)

Plus, if you're going for 100%, you have to get to the final dungeon in 8 hours to get Excalibur II, which is... not easy.

Steal from everything, never sell anything, and use everyone.

Also, watch all the ATEs because they're like skits from a Tales game.

The new (relatively speaking) Pool of Radiance was pretty wonky, if I recall. At least it had Elmo.

That's the game with the infamous bug in the uninstaller that would remove your Windows folder as well as the game itself.

As infuriating as I might find that, I also would probably laugh.

"OUR UNINSTALLER DOESN'T TAKE ANY SHIT. GOT FILES? FUCK YOU! THEY'RE GONE!"

So I've got about 6 hours on the game now, I love it. Skill system kicks ass, and the diversity of different kinds of skills is awesome even at level 13 out of 100. Loot system is great too. Rob, I appreciate your complaint that the action feels weak, but I couldn't disagree more, because it feels just as tight as any other ARPG I've played, to me. Also I'm going to keep harping on you until you play it with me :)

Saying the barter system is confusing and turns you off is like saying "Learning Dark Souls is confusing and doesn't tell me what to do, so it turns me off." There's a ton of flexibility in it, and because of how it's built, it encourages trade and picking up things you might not normally pick up. Also, it encourages player interaction because someone else may have something you need, and usually you'll have something they want.

Anyone else playing this?

It's a rough game to play, but I think a lot of the hate stems from it being "different" rather than bad. There are some genuinely cool and progressive features. The tech balancing system is neat, the combat is generally pretty solid, generation thing gives you some replayability, and the music is great. Unfortunately it often gets a bad rap because if you sit on the command input screen, the combat music won't change and the loop is pretty short-- it's dynamic and shifts depending on how well each round is going.

Srsly though, it has one of the coolest final boss themes in the series.

If someone did a collection of the old SSI games like Pool of Radiance, Curse of the Azure Bonds etc., I'd be pretty happy.

That would be really cool. I played those as a young lad and had no idea what I was doing. It would be fun to play them again now with some semblance of cognizance. The new (relatively speaking) Pool of Radiance was pretty wonky, if I recall. At least it had Elmo.
