Also yes, Spiky Tiger can eat a dick. He's infamous as being unfair bullshit given when you encounter him and what he's packing. Fortunately, magic mostly solves the combat/supply issues by being hilariously overpowered if properly leveled.

Yeah, Spikey Tiger was the worst, but the other 3 bosses I fought so far were pretty bad, too when it came to each of them having some bullcrap attack that was practically impossible to dodge...

And I did upgrade the weapons but they didn't seem to change until after the last boss fight I did? That was weird...

Also, I should note that despite my grievances (I also agree with Mesh about the hit detection, and I have noticed some of the things Aeolus mentioned, too), I'm still enjoying this game quite a bit, and really want to continue with it. I haven't said that in quite a while...well, actually I said that about my replay of FFXII. But before that I hadn't really said that since, like, 2009 or 10...

And I still don't know how I'm supposed to get to the Ruins? I mean, this game has been good about telling me things (every major screen seems to have at least one sign), but unless I missed something, I can't find anything telling me where those ruins are? Am I supposed to talk to Cannon dude?

...isn't Crunchyroll airing it uncensored?

Oh wait, I read it wrong, they'll get them some time in the future, but don't have them yet.

I dunno, I kinda liked FFA more, which came before it, and they're more similar than I expected. There's not quite as much to the combat in FFA, but I think trying too many things kinda hurt SoM. Though I guess I'll have to play more to see what I think in the end...

Playing Secret of Mana on the VC. I just got magic and now I'm lost as hell...

I will say that it's weird that I'm enjoying this game, yet I still feel it's kinda overrated. It doesn't feel like a gem so much as a diamond in the rough, what with the crappy, barely adjustable AI characters that love to get stuck in places, the bosses with some pretty cheap and seemingly unblockable attacks, only being able to have 4 of any item, combat that feels a little too random (I seriously think there's no skill to blocking or dodging, it's just RNG)...I think a true sequel or even a remake someday would greatly benefit this game.

To be quite honest, one of the main reasons I love Turn-based RPGs is that they rely heavily on simple resource management. I don't think I could handle an RPG where I actually had to think several steps ahead, because that's shit I don't do ever. Like, in Life. Just force enough thinking that I feel involved, but not enough that I start getting anxious about everything I do, and I'm fine. Life is stressful enough, man. I don't need games giving me grey hairs. Unless it's like Tactic Ogres, where you can turn back the clock if you make a mistake. That's pretty much the main reason it's one of the only strategy games that actually require some strategy that I enjoy.

@Kevuda - Did you see any of Sword Art Online II? If so, how is it holding up compared to the novels?
22  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: October 10, 2014, 04:17:59 PM
Yeah, I meant to get a trackball mouse a few months ago, but I didn't like the prices...

People are going to make fun of me - but I've never been able to get into Vagrant Story.

I keep hearing how awesome the story is, but I can't get past the awful combat/inventory.



I tried really hard to get into it, too, but I just got way too confused and overwhelmed, and I played it back when I demanded every game have over-complicated systems (which was just late 2010...).

Just for reference, I have 9 upcoming simulcasts I want to watch:

World Trigger
Gundam Reconguista in G
Fate/Stay Night
Rage of Bahamut: Genesis
GARO: The Animation
Laughing Under the Clouds
When Supernatual Battles Became Commonplace
Denki-Gai
Gugure! Kokkuri-san

In order of interest, of course, with my most hopefuls at the top.

Course, I'll probably wind up giving up after a couple episodes, like I always do, but I really gotta get into watching more shows at a slower pace, as I've been finding it incredibly difficult to marathon stuff these days, and now work's limiting my free time, so...I gotta get into a new rhythm at some point.
25  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: PS1 RPG Games on: October 08, 2014, 11:43:34 AM

Yeah, that's the video that finally got me to play Chrono Cross. Can't say I'm disappointed thus far.
26  Media / Anime, TV, and Movies / Re: Anime/Manga Journal on: October 07, 2014, 09:27:34 AM
I like a big cast, but even Bleach is too big and drawn out, IMO.

The first one was boring, but I kinda liked the sequel as "Dynasty Warriors with a slightly deeper combat system and more agressive enemies". That was before I played Ken's Rage, though.

Thanks to JesuOtaku, I guess I'll be watching Space Dandy for a while. At least for the next 7 days or so, while I wait until I can watch some of the new shows coming soon. I already rewatched the first episode. Hopefully this really is one of the lesser episodes in the series. It's funny, but also kinda tame for this style of comedy, like its holding back.
29  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: PS1 RPG Games on: October 06, 2014, 09:14:03 PM
Yeah, PSOne era was a pretty painful time when it came to voice acting...and the fact that at least half the games featured in that video being on the PSOne really proves it.
30  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: PS1 RPG Games on: October 06, 2014, 08:22:24 PM
Okay, in retrospect, I think at least 40% of my problem with VP was the voice acting. I can handle bad dubs in things that I'm not supposed to take seriously, but VP is not one of those things...it doesn't help that I had to sit through the intro cutscenes several times because I had trouble getting the game working...
