I played up to Threed. I tried guys, I really did. But I am not seeing why this game is so loved. This game's insanely tedious. I keep getting my ass kicked, and since they let you keep your levels and stuff, I've basically been strong-arming my way through the game. I knew the plot wouldn't be very deep at all, but I still expected something charming. Besides a few funny-looking enemies, and some random one-liners, there's almost nothing here. Each town's plot has been paper-thin, it took waaay too long just to get Paula (and she's level fucking one, wth?), it's usually unclear on what you need to do next, and it feels like there's hardly any strategy to the battles at all. The game really just seems to be famous for the mood whiplash of Giygas and his battle.

Pleeeeaaaase tell me this gets better. Because I've been anticipating finally getting around to playing this for a long time, and I really wanted to love this.

I've heard it isn't the Link from ALttP/OoS/OoS/LW, but it does take place where I hoped it would, oddly. XD Between LW and TLoZ1.

You could just pick the other character with a new game plus, yes? That's usually when I make a different choice in a game; when I get to play it again with extra bonuses.

Picked up Xillia this morning. But I won't be able to play it or Graces f until I buy a PS3 next month. Haven't touched the series since Vesperia in 2008 and I'm itching to hope back in.

Also, quick question about Symphonia's HD release coming out next year: are they revamping the battle system to include the whole "3D plain" thing that Abyss introduced. Because that was my favorite addition to the battle system.

Well, shit. Delete all the other topics; this is all we'll ever need.

I've been using the guide on Thonky to find the reals from the fakes. My real challenge with the game is some of the deep seas diving stuff. I can't seem to catch half the stuff. XD

This may very well be my favorite entry in the series, especially after how disappointing City Folk was. The amount of customization with the house and the town is great, and the way Main Street grows feels like actual progress is being made. Also, the new type of male villager? The sort of mellowed out, philosophical one? Hilarious. The one I have is a squirrel named Marshal and he constantly sends these letters with random musings. I think a lot of the dialogue in this game is more humorous than it's been in previous entries. I've even spotted some internet memes in there, like a "Seems Legit" choice when a villager is trying to sell you things. And when I visited a villager's house, they commented that they don't use their TV much because when they get into a show, it gets cancelled. I love that.

Christ it doesn't have to be a sequel, but why can't we get an Earthbound style game released in this day and age? Silly humor, modern day aspects, giant slime piles, an oddly alien yet benevolent race of strange beings who know everything and have a single word used as more of a gag than an actual term....damnit I want more Mr. Saturn!

There was Contact for DS, but I wasn't overly fond of that game. 

Contact was riddled with flaws, but that ending really did leave me wanting a sequel to it. :\

Well then... I will think about it. *strokes beard thoughtfully*

Though I still want a Wii U. The Lego game actually looks pretty awesome, from what I've watched on YouTube.
129  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Tales of PlayStation(s) revealed on: April 10, 2013, 10:42:46 AM
Well that stinks. :/ Looks like I'm just missing out on these ones then.

I wanted to play Graces and Xillia, but I'm probably going to buy a Wii U over a PS3 at this point considering it's at the end of its run and there's not much else for the system I want. You think I'll be able to download/stream them on the PS4 when that comes out? I already know buying the actual discs would be useless because of the "no backwards compatibiliy" thing, but I'm not really sure how the other two are going to work.
131  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Annoying Moments in otherwise Great Games on: March 21, 2013, 01:25:40 AM
Yeah, Ocarina Of Time's is probably the best one. You can see everything going on in each section and stay still as long as you want to see the patterns, and the patterns are really straightforward. I appreciate that.

I think the first time they ever really bothered my was the two Subrosian brothers in Oracle Of Seasons. Those annoying, jittery buttholes. *shakes fist*

(Funny enough, it's my second favorite Zelda, too.)
132  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Annoying Moments in otherwise Great Games on: March 21, 2013, 01:07:51 AM
Pretty much any time Zelda has a stealth section.

Not even half an hour after starting Spirit Tracks and it had the obligatory stealth section. I put the game down right there and haven't touched it since. And I know it's probably easy, but I don't care. I'm sick of stealth in Zelda. Even when they aren't hard, they can be stupidly annoying.

Just tried taking on the fire dragon... It effed me up. XD

But if I use the guest fighter's move's in an effective order, I think I can royally destroy that thing. I ended up doing over 4000 damage in one turn, which was awesome.
134  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Etrian Odyssey IV announced for 3DS on: March 17, 2013, 10:58:26 PM
Man, I do not like the 6th Stratum. Not only is it genuinely creepy, but the second floor just made it worse.

Finally managed to stop him with a well-timed Geo Impact. :)

This final battle is really making me wish I had chosen different subclasses for some of my guys though.

EDIT: Of course, as soon as I post that I realize that resting the characters clears the subclass too. Time to fix some things.
