All jobs mastered on all characters, all 99. Chapter 6 still...

I wish I had that kind of dedication. I'm still struggling through the end of Chapter 2...
It's a safe bet your game will MAKE you have that dedication...if you're playing Hard Mode.

Nah, apart from the bonus boss and maybe the final subquest nothing in hard mode requires you to be at that level. Every boss has a pattern and once you find it, the fights become a hell of a lot easier. Like how the chapter 4 subquest boss in the castle at the northwestern part of the world map only uses Energy Blast right after he drains BP from you. Nothing in chapter 6 requires those levels to beat it. I think I was level 75 entering the final chapter in hard mode.

The Netflix description is
Residents of an Irish island must get very drunk to survive attacks by alien monsters who can't tolerate a high blood alcohol level in their victims.

Despite what the description might suggest, it was actually a fun movie to watch. It was weird that the main character was an English actor playing an Irish Garda as his accent was kind of noticeable. It was pretty cheesy throughout but the movie wouldn't have worked otherwise. You won't get a great story or deep characters but all the same I don't regret watching it.

^The 'shouting scene' sounds something out of X-2 to me.

Nah, I am talking about

when you have to shout at Hope from the future to the past during the Proto Fal Cie Adam fight. I understand the logic behind it but it doesn't stop it being ridiculous.

My issue with the story was more that FFXIII finished up nicely and had tied up most of the loose ends it had than its actual quality. FFXIII-2 came along and tried to continue a basically finished tale. The time travel in the game isn't that hard to grasp although the shouting scene was pretty ridiculous.

Belated congratulations CluelessWonder.

6 month gym membership for 200 bucks, or ps4?

Choices sucks.

I am with Mesh on this one. You also seemed to really enjoy the last gym you were at so if money isn't an issue, I think it would be a shame to stop. The PS4 library will only increase and the console may also have a nice price drop when you do get around to getting it.

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate
HR3 and 7 star village quests. Currently upgrading equipment as enemies are hitting a lot harder now.

Dead Space
Really liking it so far. I am horrible at conserving ammo but it seems to be plentiful so far.

I really like salve maker and how it's competent beyond ffvs 'mix is OP, but I hope you have a spreadsheet handy'(Potion + phoenix down is pretty sweet though). Good passives, manufacturing attack items with experiment is cool(And another of those abilities that works well specifically because of the brave system) and first aid is the kind of heal I'd like to see more of in rpgs, a preemptive one. And if you want to mix stuff with compound some of the tooltips pretty much tell you 'mix this with a elemental item to lower resistance to that element.'

I love Salve Maker. I had Performer/Salve Maker up to the very end of the game. Giant's Draft is awesome if you are finding yourself being one shot by bosses. It doubles your health even going over the 9999 mark. I think it was Beast Liver and Dragon's Fang. Widen Area costs 1 BP but is great in that it can basically turn an Elixir into a Mega Elixir. You mentioned Resurrect which is one of my favourite abilities. Being able to resurrect someone at full HP for little to no cost for a large portion of the game is great.

Was the voice acting in Xenoblade really that bad? I enjoyed it myself. Thought it was a nice change.

I haven't really timed it, sorry.  I will say it seems rather intimidating at first, but as you continue its pressure lifts. It's not as lenient as something like Breath of Fire V, though (in which you were never going to hit the time limit if you just ran around exploring).

You do have an ability that you can use rather liberally that stops the flow of time, but keeps everything else around you, including NPCs and quests, moving. This essentially doubles the amount of time you have, or more if you can find a nice group of monsters to replenish your EP supply.

Thanks for that Cyril. Answered a lot for me.

How fast does it move exactly? I have been avoiding articles since release in case the plot gets spoiled but I am curious about the time aspect.

Anyone else find that the villain's plans make no sense?

Okay wind temple continent, the evil plan is to extort people and force them to labor to make them love progress.....they are going to end up hating the merchant and the king. Why would they ever believe the bile coming from the guy forcing them to work 18 hour days and allows a guy to take all their earnings for basic necessities? He is the source of their suffering.

Water temple continent, we've made a city full of religious nuns into a bunch of teeny boppers who only care about fashion.....okay, I guess that works. Oh and our fashions kill them.....why?

Fire continent seems better so far? Although the pirate seems to have been doing absolutely nothing to anyone, so I'm slightly worried that it is going to get stupid soon.

I think the Time Mage was just doing his own thing for the most part. He was doing it for Anti-Crystalism but I don't think he was ordered to do anything specific by the actual Eternian forces. Plus he seems kind of gullible and was probably being manipulated by the Merchant for the most part. I am guessing the only reason his plans worked as well as they did was probably because the people saw Agnes as the bad guy rather than him.

I am guessing the plans with the water temple area were done to make sure that the locals did not rise up in rebellion against the hunting of Crystalists. I saw it as Einheria was doing the main task, hunting down crystalists and locating the Water Vestal. DeRosa was a bit of a creep too yet since he was the commanding officer, the three Venus sisters had to follow his orders.

Barbarossa seems to be searching for a way into the fire temple. Guess he could also be taking part in naval warfare but we never really hear about that. The guy also has his own personal quest he was doing on the side too.

5 Hours into FF XIII-2. The story has great potential, the characters are likeable and great and SHIT THE GAMEPLAY ROCKS!
Im really digging the improvements and the monster collecting/leveling up thingy. It's much more fast paced, to the point and it has fantastic music aswell. Damn, Im really surprised.

I really liked the gameplay in XIII-2 but found the story in the first game a lot better. I agree with your opinion on the gameplay though. Thought it was a great improvement over XIII whose gameplay I also enjoyed. Can't really remember much of its music but I played it a long time ago. Overall I had a lot of fun with it. Didn't mind Chocolina at all, it was Mog and his voice that I found annoying. I thought XIII was a bit harder although that could be a combination of it being a new battle system to me and XIII-2 allowing me to play defensively against every boss unlike XIII.

Spent a lot of time today cutting down trees that had fallen due to the wind. Crazy amount of trees fell. Unfortunately I didn't have a chainsaw so I had to make do with a handsaw.

Just beat the vampire, everyone's level 83. I was cheap and had everyone sub ninja for utsusemi casting and turn tables for free bp. Pushover fight that way.
Jesus man, I was less than half that at that stage of the game on hard mode. Where did you even grind? Guessing it was around the world map where you go for chapter 4 but it must have taken forever.
195  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: February 11, 2014, 09:27:08 PM
Now I'm fighting a series of dragons around the world map for access to the last class quest and they're ruining my damn life. I've resorted to the cheapest abuse for wins, lots of utsusemi and ramparts. I feel dirty not just plowing through battles with regular hits.

Not really a spoiler just a really cheap way to beat the dragons.
You are already using ninja but if you attach swordmaster or the counter skill, you can dodge and counter attack. You don't even need rampart then.

A more legit way would be timing your attacks for every third round and playing defensively the other two. They always seem to do the attack that makes you weak to their element every third attack.
