Dincrest - I'm mostly talking about the score.  I know you'll say the text of the review is what matters but I feel that it deserves at least a 70 because the story is good.  I agree the combat/dungeons suck but it's broken up often by town/cutscenes so it's not as horrible as it could be.  Basically, 62 on this site is really really bad lol

Greg & Dincrest -  Random dungeons would be nice if the combat was good but since it's not I'd say its actually better with the static dungeons because it lets you finish them easier and get back to other things.  I have nothing against random dungeons (I love Evolution) but in a game with cruddy combat and limited customization it just wouldn't feel fun/rewarding enough.

I think the ratio of dungeon time to town/cutscene time is pretty balanced.  This may be more difficult with other servants but with Saber most encounters don't last more than 1 or 2 turns (been jacking strength the most followed by endurance).  I find that if given the opportunity to explore a dungeon floor uninterrupted by story scenes (like encountering enemy servant) I can generally map a whole floor in 1 "day."  Almost every week (currently on week 5) I actually throw the last day's dungeon crawling by entering the arena and then leaving immediately to make the day end.  

edit:  harsh review!  http://www.rpgfan.com/reviews/Fate_Extra/index.html  XD

I'm glad I got it though cause for whatever reason the dungeons and combat aren't bothering me as much as they probably should be.  It's probably cause my expectations were so low from the start.

For all I rant though, the story is quite fascinating (as it should be, to keep your interest as a VN) and other than a few typos and grammar errors, Aksys did a very good job localizing the game.

I'm really liking the story too.  The combat isn't as bad as I thought either, at least the music is good and the fights are fun to watch.  Makes up for the overly simplistic battle system a bit imo

I've never heard of a PSP game that only allowed for one save file.  Is that even a thing?

Wyrdwad from Xseed said that Grand Knights History only has one save file so that's at least one game I suppose

I have ZHP, I've never even tried to make another file on it.  I think I remember seeing empty file slots though so I'm under the impression you can make more files, its just that it autosaves on whatever file you have loaded.

souls for skeletons and ghosts is a nice change

and you can buy twinkling titanite!!!  =D

^ I also use Zweihander as my main weapon so Poise is vital.  Hope my lightinging one didn't get nerfed too hard by the "rebalancing" to elemental weapons

Guess it's time to move to whatever has the highest poise now.  Hope Black Iron Armor didn't get the poise lowered too.  you could always use the ring that raises poise, but I'd rather not take up a ring slot with that
262  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dark Souls on: November 02, 2011, 07:20:08 AM
Oh my god.  Seriously?  I use Havel armor -_-  without the poise there would be no point  :(

I'm gonna just go for the impulse buy and get this.  Saw some vids on youtube, I like the music.  

think I'll pick saber

I'm reading some reviews and realizing that going to that site spoiled all  the servant identities and that mighta been bad to look at if I actually get it lol.  

some (positive) reveiws:

and yeah you get choice of male/female master but not servant, you must choose from those 3

My main thing is that, if the story is good I can deal with (what looks like to me) a weak battle system.  If the battle system is weak though I want the battles to be FAST....so I wonder if the battles in this game are fast if the combat is weak like it looks.  Also I don't like that all the dungeons are cyberspace looking, seems like that would be dull.  Even so, if the story and music are good maybe I'll take a dive on this and see how it works, cause the number of games I'm looking forward to is so absurdly small that I can count them on one hand.  -__-

I'm a bit confused.   The descriptions of the gawain, robin hood, and nursery rhyme make it sound like they are NPCs.  Are they choosable or not?
266  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fate/Extra on: November 01, 2011, 07:06:02 PM
I've only seen female saber, male archer, and female caster.  having trouble finding pics of the others....anyone got some?

Horror story time!!!

so Bed of Chaos....I get to the heart inside right...and I swing my blade in a horizontal slash and it goes right over it so I slash again and hit, but at the same time a fire column kills me in one hit.  YOU DIED > YOU DEFEATED > GOT LORD SOUL and I got sent back to bonfire.   Then I was thinking "hey does that mean I don't get any souls for beating the boss?  maybe they got added to my bloodstain?"  so I go back and i see my bloodstain in distance in the room and......I fail the jump and slide off the branch to my death.  So I have no idea if the boss reward was in my bloodstain or not.  -___-

Just wait a bit longer and I'm sure more Americans will catch up.  I certainly have no where near that high lol
269  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dark Souls on: October 27, 2011, 07:05:55 PM
it's not that bad if you use RECORD OF AGGRO WAR to make them all kill each other

still a really stupid area though

you don't actually need to buy many transient curse to get through new londo.  I have only bought 1.  It last a while and by the time it runs out you should have aquired more from killing the ghosts, which often drop 2 at once.  Plus I think theres one or two that are just item pickups in the stage.
