It's like the Strawberry Shortcake "characters named after food" trope made about 20% cooler. 

Reminds me of Galaxy Angel which does the same.

As for gameplay, the game lets you control another character as soon as you get one.

Since it's not covered specifically (not that I've seen), the character you want to control should be put in the top slot in the menu.
Use the Square button to swap.

My problem with auto Item is the AI behavior seems to only be on or off, you can't define how the auto Items should be used, unless I'm missing something.

???
Did you go in the menu for it?

Yup, that's where I got the comedy club game.
It's not great, but it's worth it for that price.

(Surprisingly, it's made by Capcom too)

Speaking of the AI: why is it that nearly every jRPG out there has a boss that burrows and comes out doing major damage while the AI runs around like beheaded chickens?

I mean, you just need to add a condition to the AI: If nothing targetable on the battlefield -> block.

Those who fought the boss know which one I'm talking about and the AI keeps getting brutalized for about 200 damage a hit. Contrarily, since I block, I am taking less than 40 (hard guard is good)

That is either a joke page or the very reason why I gave up on TV 5 years ago.

And also make me question the sanity of the architect that designed them.

Is that from the movie Thor?

I agree with you Rob that denoting your reactions his valuable for the reader. The problem is that reactions are personal.
I guess a perfect reviewer would be able to view a game according to himself while being able to also view it as his exact opposite.
1632  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Podcast (Random Encounter) Thread on: August 12, 2013, 05:12:07 PM
So...people with strong opinions shouldn't review games?

I'd say that they are more inclined to forgo objectivity than the alternative.
1633  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: RPGFan Podcast (Random Encounter) Thread on: August 12, 2013, 04:48:27 PM
This probably won't make me popular, but...

While I agree, as you guys said in the podcast, that a women is perfectly within her rights to review Dragon Crown.. I would also be inclined to say that some people (either genders) are not the best to review borderline games.

While aggregating the results from the multiple categories (music, gameplay, art, controls, story and whatever) for the final score, it sometimes feels like there's a hidden -2/10 because "it offended me" and I think that should not be there.

So yes, on one hand, anyone can review the game. On the other, having someone review a game that is against their values and morals will generally yield a less than pleasant reaction from the actual target audience.

Lastly, I'm not saying that the alternative, where only people part of the hive mind review the game, is a better, since that would just be a giant circle jerk.

For the bosses, I find that if you equip the right artes, the bosses are pushovers... and if not, you get my Jiao post above.
When a normal punch does 30 damage and an elemental weakness mystic art does 4000... there's a huge gap.

Also, the 30% elemental resistance skills, I find, are pretty much mandatory.

I've stopped upgrading the shops and I'm basically walking around with crap gear.
The normal encounters are still piss easy on hard, but at least the last boss I fought gave me a pretty hard time.

I've gotten used to dealing with endless swarms of minions because half the boss, at the point I'm at, summoned minions.
What's up with that?

Dice - I won't complain about the dungeons because up to now, it's still better than Graces F (not that that was hard to beat)
