I don't think I ever give games another chance.  My decisions are final!!!  wahahahaha

Well this is more of a "normal" SRPG from the looks of it so maybe you'll like this one better.

wow.  I was barely keeping up with the news on it at all and I just so happened to look on April 1st?  too good

I played Act 1 a long time ago and liked it.  I might download this not sure.  I was kinda annoyed when I read they were gonna do some kinda subscription thing to get full functionality (like being able to save anytime you want).  Did they actually go through with any of that?  Or do you just download it and get everything?

edit:  whatever I'll find out one way or another lol.  *begins download*
edit2:  looks like they didn't do it, I can save anywhere.  guess people told them it was a stupid idea and they gave up.  no one wants save checkpoints in a game like this

yeah this one is really good
261  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Atlus Game Announcement Thread - Mark 2 on: December 24, 2011, 09:10:15 PM
the fact that anyone is even talking about the PSX version in here is making me go "wtf"

Cyril's got it.  I'm just not interested in western games for the most part.  Atlus hasn't really been picking up as many cool 3rd party Japanese games in last couple years and I've been disappointed by the lack of any new Growlanser releases (though that may change soon).  I started liking Xseed a lot ever since the Falcom partnership and they prettymuch took Atlus's place as my favorite publisher.  Atlus's mods aren't always so nice on the forums too (though a lot of times it's cause of people saying stupid stuff)


that Cursed Crusade demo though......*shivers*

Wow... My faith in atlus is returning!

I know right.  lol

patch is out

The red dress she wears in the game is rather lovely, but it's odd that they would make the front part see-through like that just for guys to go "ah-tee-hee-hee." This is more of a criticism on what's wrong with anime these days than the game, I guess.

I haven't played it for a few days (I was on a trip to Vegas over the weekend), but I am hoping that the dungeons in the second phase will be bigger and more interesting.

I really like her dress.  I'm cool with the see-through but I think only middle schoolers will go "ah-tee-hee-hee" lol. 

The dungeons don't change dramatically but the floors do get larger and the background graphics do get more detailed/unique.

Yeah... but... Saber's wearing a see-through dress this time. You can see her panties. That has to count for something, doesn't it? :)

it does count for something :D  +10 points!



......(I'm joking about the +10 points part)

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

Haven't you just described it as a good book but a bad game?

If it was purely a visual novel, then (at least for me) I'd give a higher weighting to the story category. But it has a substantial amount of gameplay too.

No I haven't cause it's not a book.  There's gameplay (not all of which is combat), artwork, graphics, music, etc.

Dincrest - OT but I like Thousand Arms as well.  The dating sim stuff was fun.  I can't remember a thing about the combat system or the general story though 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.
