My first SRPG was FFTA. No idea why I didn't try them earlier. I don't really remember seeing any for sale. I think FFT WOTL was the first time FFT came to Europe. Could be wrong though. Had a lot of fun with FFTA although I remember wondering when I would finally get to walk around and explore.

I haven't played the game in ages but I remember switching between roles all the time. Focusing on just one seems like a bad call as certain battles call for certain strategies. SAB and SEN were really useful for me during boss fights. Didn't use SYN as much though.

Are you upgrading your monsters stats too? It really helps although you will eventually need to upgrade to new ones. You can also sacrifice the monsters to improve others but I never did this and was fine. I am guessing you mainly use MED and SEN monsters since you only leveled RAV and COM for Noel and Serah. I usually switched into MED to back up the MED monsters if they were struggling.

Sorry I wasn't much help. I am sure someone else will be able to answer your question properly.

If anyone wants to get twenty villagers to transfer from the demo to the main game, there is a way. Credit goes to Super Yoshi at gamefaqs

 http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/729328-bravely-default/68255426

Note: You might need to disable auto-save for this. Also you have to start the demo again if you already got the extra villager and saved.

1. Play up to the point where you get the quest for killing the second boss, Adamantite.(That's when I noticed the extra villager being available from that one NPC, so could work earlier too)
2. Save your game before talking to that NPC.(He is somewhere between the spell shop and equipment shop during the day)
3. Go talk to him, and then check that your villager count has increased by 1.
4. Go talk to the Adventurer and choose "To title", and then load up your save file again.
5. Now just talk to the villager giving NPC again, and you should receive another villager!

Norende's progress is automatically saved, so the villager count doesn't change when you load your save file. You can just keep on loading your save file until you have the 20 villagers which is the max you can transfer for the full version, or just keep on getting more so you can get that normally so long taking Play Bonus much faster!

Something similar happened to me with Breath of Fire: Dragon Quarter. I hated the game when I first tried it. It just felt to different from the previous games. Fast forward a few years and I end up loving the game once I gave it another chance.

It only seems to happen to me when a series drastically changes though. I normally enjoy games that try to be different, either in story or gameplay.

I am waiting for the library to grow a bit before I get one. I already own older versions of most of the games I like on it.

I cant stand the beginning 5 hour crawl of most RPG's... There a few notable exceptions where it doesnt happen(Ys games, final fantasy VII, Chrono series, cant think of any other examples right now there are probably others)

I think my issue is at the other end. I have trouble with the final dungeon in a lot of RPGs. It is like they all try to make it obvious to the player that this is the final dungeon but it just makes them all feel the same. It is almost like if you have seen one final dungeon in an RPG, you have seen them all.

IOS?

*table flip*

Jesus Christ. Enough is enough.

Is there a specific reason for the hatred towards iOS? I mean, I understand it if the quality of the game suffers but I doubt that would be the case here. It actually looks as if it would fit in naturally.

Or is it something more similar to Valkyria Chronicles 2 where the fanbase was built on the PS3 but the sequel came out for the PSP?
294  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: 100 Turn Hero (sequel to half-minute) on: December 29, 2013, 07:10:23 PM
I really need to get something that can play iOS games.

Seems like it will be really fun. I loved 30 second hero to bits.

Cosmogenesis is weird. It seems to totally change its tone at the 2:50 mark. Last Resort sounds like one of those pieces that it is better to hear it in context. Not going to judge ieither until I hear it ingame though.

I liked both Divine Love and Almighty Bhunivelze. Actually, I like most of the battle themes from the FFXIII games.

The armour on most female melee characters really bothers me. I don't mind mage characters as much as they won't be fighting on the front lines but a lot of the melee armour makes no sense to me at all. I'm sure the question of how it protects them has been raised before so I won't expand on it. One thing that always confuses me is that when they are properly armoured in something like plate, it is designed with the shape of the breasts on it. I don't know a lot about actual armour but it seems off. Always thought that male and female armour should look basically the same. I can see chain mail being okay but plate mail just seems ridiculous. Basically I want more of Brienne of Tarth and Agrias and less... well basically any female character from Soul Calibur.

Bravely Default.

The game is totally awesome. I am up to chapter 3 and having loads of fun with it. The voice acting is pretty good with the exception of Agnès. Her voice acting isn't really bad but I get the same feeling with her as I did with Yuna's voice from FFX. I  like how most bosses have some development. The game is also pretty depressing so far.  Also D's Journal has me thinking crazy things that will happen in the plot later on. Some make sense while others are way out there.

Code:
Pretty sure that the Journal belongs to Alternis Dim. There are drawings of himself scattered throughout. Also, I don't think the journal predicts the future but rather comes from it. Makes me think that Ringabel is actually a future version of Alternis. Especially as Ringabel is not mentioned in the journal at all. Then I start expanding on it with crazier thoughts like the Sage and even Edea's father are also future D's.

Also thinking that the Vestal of Earth is going to be evil or at least on the other side. They keep mentioning how only a Vestal can remove another Vestal's barrier on the crystal and it is making me suspicious. Although they would not really need another Vestal if they had one themselves. Could be the Earth crystal already has a barrier and they need someone to remove it. Heck, I think half the cast will turn into villains at one stage or another. Airy the Cryst fairy, the Matriarch and the Sage all have me suspicious. Course, I am  a horrible judge of xharacter so probably wrong on all fronts.

That is great to hear. I was worried that it would be too easy. Thanks to the both of you. Guessing that abusing the village would break the game but it would kind of be your own fault if you do. Tempted to buy it now and play it over Christmas.


You know, because I can.

How is the difficulty in the game? The demo wasn't that hard once you got some equipment but the boss fights were decent challenges.

Insidious -

It starts out as a pretty typical Haunted house type movie, with a decently creepy vibe. The about halfway through they introduce some elements which tell me that they were trying to differentiate themselves from the typical haunted house flik. Unfortunately, all it does is add layers of confusion on top of simplicity. Add in people doing incredibly stupid things, and there is really nothing special about this movie. Plus, the ending was lame, and way too blatant about setting up a sequel.


Not a huge fan of the movie myself. The two ghostbusters were probably the highlight of it for me. They didn't really fit in with the tone of the first half but were fun to watch.

Code:
I thought the idea of the old woman slowly getting closer to the father in all those photographs would have been a lot more interesting to watch than the carnival of horrors they went with.
