I thought they had photo shopped Daniel Radcliffe's Twenty something year old face onto some kid for a second.

I am on Chapter 4 of Resonance of Fate. Finished the escort mission. Just need to do some of the guild quests before moving on. Game is great fun but boy does Leanne ever have a bad dose of the crazy eyes.

Kyle is not the right person to listen to if you're remotely interested in JRPGs.  His staff page shows some of his favorite RPGs being Planescape, Mass Effect, and Fallout, which is fine, but it's obvious he wasn't going to enjoy this (or Bravely Default for that matter).

I think that is a bit harsh man. Those are some of my favourite games and I also love JRPGs. People have different tastes and it is as important to hear those that dislike the game as it is those who like it. I was surprised Kyle reviewed this but more so because I had never seen him review a modern dungeon crawler before. Thought all the dungeon crawlers went to Ashton, Tooker or Hussey.

I was surprised by the review. I'm not that far in yet so I may not have come to all of Kyle's issues yet. The dungeon crawling aspect seems fine so far. Dungeons seem to look nice although I am only judging it by other dungeon crawlers. I can see how he can be bothered by the character designs but the voice acting seemed fine to me, pretty good even. I am guessing the fan service was what dragged the story score that low. Not a fan of fan service myself but I was surprised at the 10%. Especially since he said there were positives about the story behind the fan service.

The Persona knock off anime confused me though. I don't think I completely understand what he meant. I haven't heard much of the music so far but I don't think it has made me think about Persona. I could be horribly wrong about it though. I am horrible at spotting musical similarities.

Reviews are making me want this, but I have the first three Etrian Odysseys and have never made it past the second level in any of them. I'm terrible at making good characters/parties in these types of games, and I doubt this would be any different. Still tempting, though.

I've heard it isn't as hard as Etrian Odyssey and also has difficulty modes.

Edit: It is up on PSN if anyone is interested. You have to use search to find it though. Filesize is 463 MB.

Resonance of Fate

Thanks for all the tips. Didn't realise how useful Hero Charge was. It costs a Bezel to use so I made the mistake in thinking it wasn't that useful until you got more bezels to mess around with. Totally wrong.

I like the story so far. It really seems like the game was based off a bounty hunter slice of life anime with each chapter being an episode. The world itself is great. Hope they explain more about it.

Friend lent me Resonance of Fate and the Zone of the Enders HD collection.

Resonance of Fate kind of confuses me. I get the basics of the battle system but am completely out of my depth on the more advanced parts. My strategy so far has just been to use the machine gun first and follow it up with the handguns.

Great Quiz. I am going to wander arount to top 100, 16 bit rpg lists and the like before retrying.

Grimm

I have only seen four episodes so far but I like it. It reminds me of a brighter Supernatural.

And while I was able to figure out Baten Kaitos and Ar Tonelico from the intro, I'm still stumped on the RPG about a flamboyant vampire pro-wrestler who beats his enemies with telephone poles.  That sounds like a wild game.  

I could be wrong but wasn't that a Shadow Hearts reference?

Is anyone else planning to get this next week? I am looking forward to it. I do prefer the art style of The Stranger of the Village of the Sword but from what I have heard the gameplay is solid.

Beards are becoming pretty common in Ireland lately for some reason. No idea where it suddenly came from. Makes me happy though. As someone who looks slightly less bad with a beard and older :(, I am happy to no longer stand out.



Post may contain bad grammararer. Never completely sure with things like less bad. Sounds wrong but at the same time, not as horrible as less worse. I could have used something different but I like having some self esteem. Actually, my whole post could be littered with poor grammar.

"not as bad" or in the case of your sentence "doesn't look quite as bad"

I was trying to keep the phrase negative but couldn't think of any words that would really fit outside of unattractive My self esteem ;_;We have a phrase here but it doesn't translate to normal English well. Thanks for the tip though.

I have a bad habit where if I focus too hard on writing something, it sounds wooden or unnatural. Nowadays I try to only type something I would actually say out loud. Well no, that isn't completely true. If I did that, there would be a lot more posts of me saying Tis begor or Naer a chance of that happening. Sometimes words like anyways slip out. I know the s at the end is a pet peeve for a lot of people so apologies if I ever did it here. Not that it is a valid excuse for poor grammar but I really hate having my posts sound like I grabbed random words out of a thesaurus.

But...but Good game for a person that is abstinent?

Joke topic aside, it is just the same as always. As Dice said, it is just the small vocal minority saying the usual stuff.
