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.
189  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.

Too much of a grind for my tastes. They also seem to have no endgame in sight. What about all the players who complete the main story? I want more hurdles, more flappyness and more romance!
191  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Bravely Default: Flying Fairy on: February 11, 2014, 06:06:24 AM
I only used SP to complete that tutorial quest. I think most people who do use it, use it to break the 9999 limit to send attacks up to 999,999 to their friends. You will probably have your 3DS in sleep mode for Norende village anyway so you will easily get 3.

Also how do I get more Nemeses?

You can get more nemesis by updating your data once a day. Basically the thing that gives you new villagers once a day.

Speaking of kicking ass, omg Ranger. First job I maxed out, and with the support ability precision, I'm landing 4k crits on enemies. It's ungodly. Forget it if it's flying, it roughs out to a 7k hit on crit. Amazing output.

Ranger is great early game but falls down later. Angel bow is great until chapter 4

So does anybody know what the deal is with the guy in the Wind Shrine? I half expect him to be some sort of sidequest related but usually there's more of an indication as to what's up with somebody than "You're not good enough. Come back tomorrow.".

It is part of the summoner sidequest. Once you get the job he will "test" you to see if you are worthy of that summon.

Monster Hunter 3 Unlimited

Near the end of the five star villager quests. Managed to get to HR2 at Port Tanzia. The larger monsters are finally starting to appear. Surprised at how much fun I am having. Action games are not usually my cup of tea.


Seems fun so far. I like the humour in it.
