Went to Darkroot Garden, did some stuff, died.

Went back and suddenly everything seems completely different. I'm getting mobbed by a group of three plant guys that weren't active till I searched a corpse near them, and they won't deactivate.

Fire is especially useful on them. Try some of the item that enflames your weapon or some pyromancy, if you have it. Stand back, and don't let them do their 'grab' attack. They can hit from beneath you like Starcraft Lurkers, so be careful.

$20 on Amazon for Dark Souls.  If you're into good combat, Dragon's Dogma has the best action RPG combat to date.  Being able to manually control climbing onto large enemies adds a layer of depth missing from a lot of action RPGs.  Both games are completely worth playing.

Great deal, though I definitely think Dark Souls takes the trophy for "best action RPG combat" :)

It's got a really great presentation. I'm happy to see Nintendo making sure its "second-stringers" get some love.

Also new 2D-perspective Metroid and Zelda plz

I 99% disagree with Rob's point that developers should listen to fans. I'm a big fan of developer transparency and some level of community outreach, but if developers take more cues from fans then fans will feel MORE effacious and entitled (an effing disaster) and the analogy of the inmates running the asylum could apply.

Now, developers should 100% listen to sales (which they always do) and professional journalists and critics (which they sometimes do). I just think that fans should stay in the audience and not be a part of the creative process. Like, at all. Again, we don't want the inmates running he asylum.

I agree with your first paragraph, but not your second. Critics and journalists are just fans who get paid to write about games, and their opinions are just as subjective as any other fan. And I actually enjoy some degree of audience participation in the creative process. I agree that the developer needs to have a firm vision for their project and can't buckle to every bit of community pressure, but on the other hand, listening just to critics and, more importantly, sales means we'll get nothing but Skyrim and CoD-knockoffs for all eternity.

Music isn't great and the animations are too slow.

Otherwise, I'm really digging it.

I actually like the music! Also, I could be wrong but wasn't there an option to speed up the animations? I didn't want to do that because I was really enjoying them, but I can imagine after 40 hours of play I'd want to speed it up.

EDIT: I like the music, though I admit so far it's a bit sparse. The combat tune is fun though!

Playing the demo. I've always appreciated this series but never gotten into it. All I can say about this game is "fucking wow." *preorders*

Operation Rainfall was a complete success then. Too bad that this was the least interesting game of that fan push. I may get it later but prospects are not looking good at the moment.

I thought The Last Story actually looked the least interesting, because of Hironobu's past couple console games.
(irony intended)

One of Hironobu's last console games was Lost Odyssey.

So it's a FF that you play by massively humping you Ipad smearing you nether region all over the screen to make all those characters attack?

Isn't that how you play all your handheld games? It's sure how I do it.
1209  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Pandora's Tower is Coming on: January 16, 2013, 07:24:36 PM
I hear it wasn't a super great game, but still-- more RPGs is always a good thing. XSEED is doing nothing but building goodwill among a fanbase, if you ask me.

Maybe they can fight Square to the death for the localization rights to Bravely Default.

Looks like Taelus was right all along. It's a battle-focused RPG with an insane party size.  It still seems to use a lot of the FFV sprites, but it mixes other characters as well...but If you want the most popular ones, you have to buy them, I guess.

BTW, it doesn't seem to support the iPad 3 or higher...I'm hoping that's a mistake. :/

Womp. Womp.

Okay everyone go buy a bunch of premiums so Square will actually release Bravely Default. HUSTLE HUSTLE HUSTLE!

The reviews surrounding the game are surprisingly positive. I might end up picking this one up sooner than I originally intended.

And if Capcom Japan had put it out, it probably would have gotten shit on.

1212  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Square Enix is making an FF thing on: January 16, 2013, 12:10:33 AM
I recall reading a business thingy from Square saying they were going to focus heavily on social and mobile games this year. This is probably part of that.
1213  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Square Enix is making an FF thing on: January 15, 2013, 10:12:38 PM
My guess is a browser-based RPG where you buy coins to do special attacks otherwise you can do basic attacks only except if you use the social aspects to get your mobile friends to play.

Your guess is frighteningly plausible.
1214  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Square Enix is making an FF thing on: January 15, 2013, 10:03:39 PM


My guess:
a battle-focused game that mixes/matches FF characters and enemies from throughout the series

Currently in the middle of Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere. So far, so good. After this I'll be reading the complete works of Sherlock Holmes on a friend's recommendation.

You are going to be experiencing a great deal of good reading for the foreseeable future. American Gods, also by Neil Gaiman, is probably my favorite of his books.
