I've beaten it and I liked it a lot.  I did 3 playthroughs which is rare for me to do back to back.  The game is really replay friendly thanks to being able to skip events and attack animations with L2, and you can run past basically all enemies and head straight for the area boss.  The main bad thing is the amount of environment/dungeon recycling is pretty ridiculous.  The frame rate also seems to be consistently garbage while you're running around.

Cheesy is fine, boring is not fine.  Of course, what I find boring or not is up to my subjective opinion.  :P  As for the combat, I can't even remember how the boost system worked.  I just remember combat moving really slow.  Maybe it just felt that way for some reason, I don't know.  Been quite a while.

I borrowed the trilogy from my friend and quit the 1st game after about 20 hours.  It's like watching a 3D anime.  Combat is slow and dull.  I also thought the characters were annoying and the story wasn't grabbing me.  There was basically nothing about it I liked but it was just barely entertaining enough that I played it as long as I did.  There's nothing especially positive or noteworthy about it from my experience.  Maybe the other episodes are better but I didn't try them (though the 2nd one is bad supposedly).    

I do like Xenogears and Xenoblade.  Xenogears has some rather archaic stuff about it but it has a strong story.  Combat is nothing special but it's still better than xenosaga 1's combat -_-

I got Fairy Fencer F.  I probably won't start it till this weekend.  Not a Compile Heart fan but I'm giving them another shot cause this one looks/sounds better than their other stuff to me.

Battle Princess of Arcadias is pretty fun btw but I can understand people not liking it.  It could certainly use some polishing up but I had a good time with it.  It's more of a beat em up than an RPG.  Other than having a fantasy setting it's really not any more an RPG than Senran Kagura is.  Better than Witch and Hundred Knight imo.

A lot of times i feel like kotaku is the gawker of video game journalism

Well they are owned by Gawker Media so it makes sense :P

stop giving them clicks

The name really sucks honestly.  Not only is "Story of Seasons" forgettable but it also sounds more like it would be a subtitle than a main title.

I wouldn't recommend Witch and Hundred Knight for the most part.  Its got some high points but the low points really suck.  The atmosphere is great but there's so many stupid things that make an otherwise fun game frustrating.

I really don't spend much time on GameFAQs so I wouldn't know, but it is normal to have much discussion on a niche Japan-only game?  I mean, it's not like it's been released here yet.  I guess I wouldn't actually expect to find much...

worth noting that Battle Princess has 2 pages on the gamefaqs board and Fairy Fencer F has 14 pages :P

they updated the official site

http://nisamerica.com/games/arcadias/index.html

I can't believe how excessively basic the story is.  It basically just says "monsters are attacking so the kingdoms sent out battle princesses to fight."  But hey whateaver :P

That might explain it.  They are clearly doing something very wrong during testing
13  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Mugen Souls Z on: May 27, 2014, 12:28:25 PM
I don't have this game but man does every game NISA puts out crash these days?  It's dumb

I saw that interview a couple days ago it's pretty great.  It's rare I will watch an interview that long for a game I'm not even planning to buy lol

My point games should be reviewed by people who like that style of game. You don't put someone who hates sports to review a sport game and say "football sucks". But it seems almost no review site have anyone who is into these kinds of games. Dynesty Warriors fans have the same problem, their games always get bad reviews too, although I understand that but that is because those games are not for me but I also understand the people who love them how upset they are that every Dynasty Warriors and games like it gets mediocre scores at best.

Yup, I can't wait for Monster Monpiece reviews.
