do you really need 100% of events to get a girl's ending?  I would think some of them wouldn't be required.  That would also mean you can't keep a save near the end of the game and get multiple endings from it because of the choices where you can only pick one girl.

I'm doing a lackluster job with the quests and side dungeons myself :p

You get a "pick a girl" choice after the 4th boss and another after the 5th boss.  It would be a good idea to keep a save at these choices so you can try the other events and get them in the database.  They probably don't affect the ending.  I haven't looked up how to get endings cause I might see a spoiler but I assume getting most of the endings just requires max affection with the girl and making an obvious choice.  This game has a very straitforward feel to it so I doubt it's more complex than that.

I've noticed something about the database.  You know how it will shade out the choices you didn't make and you will only be able to pick what you have previously selected in the database?  Well....if you're at one of the choice points where you pick a girl for an event and you pick one then after the event make a new save continuing from that.  If you then load the choice point save you can pick a different girl than do the event and you don't even have to save it cause it autosaves to database when you do an event.  The interesting thing is that if you do this then the only girl with shaded out options will be the one you actually picked and saved to the file you are continuing from, the others will have all their options available in the database.

yeah "all ages" is very misleading; what it really means is "no porn"

I'm strongly anti censorship so I disagree with the editorial.  If there is an "all ages" japanese release and they bring that over like Aselia then whatever, it's not a big deal depending on the title.  In Aselia's case the all ages actually had some new content that wasn't in the original version and I wasn't interested in the erotic content for that title, though I could understand some others may be.  The problem is when you get something like If my Heart Had Wings where the changes take out a drastic amount of content.  Admittedly I didn't look into the game myself much cause it didn't seem interesting to me but I heard the changes where pretty major with tons of CGs getting removed, kissing censorship (lol) etc.

Yea the classmating is hilarious to me now lol

I'm just about to finish the 5th dungeon.  Imo best girls are Torri and Ellie.  3rd is probably Feene because her events have good music and don't annoy me.  Chloe is indeed a massive mary sue and it's a shame cause I like her char design but damn do her events suck.  

Also I think it's funny how in this game finding a mimic in a chest pleases me more than getting an item.  Exp is nice
36  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Conception II on: April 19, 2014, 04:27:51 AM
I'm pretty addicted to this game now.  Still not sure what I think of Feene but what I do know is her theme music during her events is awesome so I'll be doing them lol.  I like Torri's theme music too

I think I saw someone mention "genius" children on gamefaqs but didn't know what they meant.  maybe it's that
38  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Conception II on: April 18, 2014, 02:48:57 PM
Yeah I just got Torri last night I like her a lot.  Her and Ellie have the best events.  The others >_>  Don't have Feene yet so can't speak for her but my only impression so far is that I hate her voice.  Having more fun with the game now for whatever reason though (probably just cuz Torri lol).  I haven't actually used Ellie much at all in combat, what are her skills like?
39  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Conception II on: April 17, 2014, 11:44:05 PM
It's not really an eroge anymore if it doesn't have any sex scenes though so I feel it's weird to keep going back to Aselia (though yeah the original Japanese version was eroge)
40  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Conception II on: April 17, 2014, 01:19:25 PM
I'm not sure how much the elements matter though.  I assume you could go through the game only using one girl if you wanted.

I stopped right after that boss but I assume I'll have Torri and Feene soon.  Mostly been using chloe and serina.  Chloe cause uh....dat costume.  Serina cause her first big special hits the whole field. Do any of the other girls learn an all enemy hitter quickly like Serina?
41  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Conception II on: April 17, 2014, 10:44:30 AM
 just wanna point out that the version of Aselia JAST brought over was the "all ages" version (I have it)

Tintaglia - not as low as the Witch and the Hundred Knight's metascore :P  Played that right before this prettymuch.  It is pretty disappointing in some respects but I'm still being entertained enough

Beat the chapter 2 boss last night (greed dungeon).  The boss was a freaking joke.  It only got to attack twice before it died.  I'm kinda annoyed about the waifu heroine switching, it seems kinda a pain to use more than one or two because they don't level automatically at all.  They REALLY should too cause if you keep switching around I don't see how they are supposed to keep up with the main char's level at all.  I also don't like that at the dorm room (menu hell) when you switch girls it doesn't let you compare their full status and skills without actually picking each one manually and looking.
42  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Conception II on: April 16, 2014, 06:23:57 PM
Well I play eroge too and I'm doing Chou Dengeki Stryker at the moment.  Much much funnier than this game but no gameplay.  I know my brother likes Kamidori a lot but I haven't played it myself. 

This game is rather underwhelming for me so far but entertaining enough.  Really bad sign when you are already seeing re-used monsters in the 2nd main dungeon.  -_-  The convos with the girls are usually not very interesting either.  Fuuka is boring, chloe is...i dunno, and narika and serina are super cookie cutter.  Ellie is pretty fun though.  Her favorite food has an...interesting name.

Well please don't get the impression I am suggesting Conception 2 deserves Editor's Choice cause that isn't what I was suggesting.  I just started going off topic when Zeron mentioned the South Park game.  I can't argue with most of the things said in the Conception review from what I've played so far I just took issue with a couple of the comments in it.  Even back in the demo I was skeptical of the battle system because it seemed like it wasn't worth it to try to chain anything.  However, I liked it enough to get the full game so here I am :P

"Conception II does has some decent art direction when it isn't being pervy."  > Why doesn't it have decent art direction while being pervy?  Or are  the transformation scenes and jiggling 2D portraits not pervy?
44  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Conception II on: April 16, 2014, 04:59:28 AM
2. There is absolutely no correlation between the Editor's Choice award and a game's "mainstream appeal." We all love RPGs here. Nobody cares if they're niche or mainstream, we just care if they're good. Conception II is not that good.


You can't say nobody does cause the Gungnir reviewer clearly passed on giving out the Editor's Choice due to lack of mainstream appeal.  I understand it's not in the official blurb about Editor's Choice Award on the site but I remembered this one cause I asked about it.
45  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Conception II on: April 16, 2014, 12:56:15 AM
^  I agree about the South Park thing.  I was thinking the same thing and thought how since that's mainstream it's apparently ok.  Back when that review came out I noticed that it got an editor's choice award with a 90% yet I remembered Gungnir also getting a 90% (I just checked and it was 92%) yet that didn't get editor's choice because it wasn't mainstream enough.  Something about "broad appeal" iirc. 

Also I know Bravely Default was reviewed by different people for this site but how do you explain that game having a significantly higher graphics score than Conception 2?  I played the demo for both (in Conceptions case I did for both consoles) and I just don't see any way to explain it other than dragging down the graphics score for the Conception 2 review to match up with the 60s it got in the other categories.
