Don't worry, it's not missable.  I only used that term because I wanted to reference a certain something without spoilers.  You'll understand when you get there.

I will say what is missable, however - no spoilers:

After every major event, go back to the Deep Dark Woods and speak to the NPC there.  You'll get new dialogue and an item.  The dialogue is missable, but, fortunately, you can get the items elsewhere.  It is a bit of a pain to walk back, though, and arguably not worth it.  This doesn't have anything to do with the ending and doesn't influence the story, it's just a nice bonus to those who remember the promise from the beginning (ie, coming to visit).  I think the most important item you can get from him is a ring that increases your attack speed by one-star.  You can make it later, but it's nice early on.

I am sorry I didn't get to giving you a proper "thank you" for your prompt response to my inquery... so here it is.... "thank you!"... LoL

In truth I got some terrible news and was too depressed to even come and visit RPGfan for a few days... ok so I visited, but I was too sad to post.....

In Ni No news, my German Wizards Edition finally came.... only to be flung up against the side of my house by the fed ex dude.... I nearly had the f****r's job on my "to terminate" list.... then I opened up the Wizards Edition and looked at drippy... calmed me down a bit...

ahhhhhhhh two freakin' awesome games I have yet to get to.... i haven't come across a good deal on a copy of SoA yet.... how "must play" is this game??.... I mean I've read a great deal about it... but from someone who has played it.... is it good in a timeless (suikoden 2) sort of way.... or is this a case of "ahead of its time but not something you'd care to visit again at present..."??? i've got enough rpg's to keep me busy until 2020 at this point but I've seen this title brought up so many times I can't help but wonder....

Gotta say, the more I play Ni no Kuni the less I like it.  Just got the boat and the third party member and I'm really getting tired of melee characters missing because something is in their way and they won't properly rearrange to engage the enemy.  Also, the AI on your other party members is flat out stupid and gets me killed more than anything else.  Either they use too much MP or nothing, and the lack of a solid middle ground is baffling. 

These are honestly my biggest issues with the game. It's not just the AI, which is undoubtedly a problem, but the pathing in general.  With the very large monsters, your Familiars just don't know where and when to attack.  They'll simply run around it, despite being in range.  And, of course as mentioned, Familiars running into each other pointlessly for the entire attack round.

I mentioned another issue a few pages back, but the true ending really, really soured the experience for me as well.

On the other hand, the final post-game quest had, in my opinion, the most emotional moment in the game.  It saddens me that most people probably won't see it.

But what the hell was Level 5 thinking?  The entire post-game quest series is the literal rehash of every
boss in the game, recolored.  It was horrible.  I get that they wanted to add extra content, but that's not even new content.

Uh-oh.... klyde detects something missable..... i have been crossing my t's and dotting my i's so to speak, whilst playing thus far.... i REALLY don't want to miss the true ending but no way in hell i'm spoiling anything by checking a guide..... this is troublesome

Game is fun, though I have to say the "comedy" routine during a certain segment in the game was particularly awful.  The game has limited voice acting, and I can't believe they dedicated that much of it to so much unfunny.  You know those moments in movies or TV shows where it cuts in to the tail end of a joke and everyone is laughing and allegedly are having a great time?  It was like that, except you were there for the entire five minute routine from start to finish and everyone in the scene is laughing hysterically, and you, the onlooker for this piece of entertainment media, is left completely bored wondering where the funny is.  There had to be something lost in translation.

Good god, I seriously can't get over how bad that was.  Why.  WHY.

I actually thought the comedy routine scene was a good parody of weird euro-humor.... which I actually like even though I never really find it funny... just weird.... LoL

I've gotten 6 platforms in the last 6 years, that's too much for me.

not to perpetuate the de-railing of "Witcher 3" talk..... but I hear ya mickey.... sure this gen has been around for awhile.... but I personally could still go another year (easily) without even thinking next gen.... I still haven't even broken into the lovely (albeit small) collection of Xbox RPG's I need to get to.... and lets not even talk handhelds.....  there was A LOT worth playing over the last few years, boy....

Their only chance to get me to try this game is to send me a beta code.


you and I both good sir.....

Target 30 min away has it and is holding one for me :) Success! Thanks Klyde!

Seeing this made my day!! I'm so happy my obsessive search for day 1 releases worked to someones benefit!! Made me feel less like a freakin' nut then I usually do when I go mad of procuring a game or LE.....

And now back to the game.... gee golly guys... this is my first Fire Emblem.... of course there was NO way I was going the casual route.... but wow... its devastating to me when I lose a member.... to think of what I could be missing out on down the road in my play-through.... brutal I tell ya... brutal.... and I'm loving it! Really makes you care.....

EDIT: And I refuse to restart chapters.... seems to me to defeat the purpose... aside from reduce the fun-factor considerably

I ordered the german wizard's edition myself.... book is in english... and even though I am currently playing an english copy of the game I can't freakin' wait for that book to come..... why????..... I don't know.... because every time I get a "new tale" in the game I want to read it in the hard copy damnit..... the wait on delivery is taking FOREVER!!

if you keep watching like a hawk though I'm certain you can score yourself a German or UK edition somewhere on the net.....

if I see anywhere gets one back in stock for retail I'll be sure to post it here.

The picture looks like Pac-Man eating a piece the cake.

holy heck man.... does it ever....
The picture looks like Pac-Man eating a piece the cake.

That's all I can see now. Thanks Ygg XD

If I had the photoshop skills to make it yellow..

I'm working on some art now but later when I'm finished if no one pac-man-ified this yet.....

So I just finished baking a cake. :D An "oreo" cake!

Chocolate sponge. Fresh cream filling with crushed oreos. Chocolate fudge ganache.

Picture! With an uhhhhh, "healthy" slice.

EDIT: Swapped ganash for ganache, thanks Grim.

I would trade a testicle to be able to eat that....

.....Klyde's got severe gut problems for those who have not heard him bitch about.... that slice could put klyde in the hospital.... klyde talks in the third person when discussing this ailment to psychologically sidestep the realization that he cannot safely indulge such things.... klyde's strategy does not work.... klyde weeps....
1152  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fire Emblem 3DS on: February 04, 2013, 04:24:43 PM
damn..... sorry to hear that... i was just replying to your other post wishing you luck.... there is always the option of a short road trip (call first and make sure their selling it, as they are not supposed to until wed. according to my local target folk)

as for the game.... i think this may finally be what I needed to break me of my problem with handhelds... granted i've only been playing for about 2 hours but its sure has been an impressive 2 hours!
1153  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Fire Emblem 3DS on: February 04, 2013, 02:41:22 PM
For whomever is hit by the shipping delay and hadn't pre-ordered/paid/been set on a retail copy and/or the retail bonus, the game IS out on the 3DS eShop tomorrow.

Scratch that (unless you're on the East Coast), it's out right now.

That would be me :( Called the Gamestop in Indy and they won't get it until Friday. I didn't want to play the game this week apparently.

Try target even if you are on the east coast.... I live in Northeast Pennsylvania and I just walked out of target an hour ago with my copy.... I walked over to gamestop and grabbed the artbook of a cancelled pre-order immediately after...... tis' a goooooood day!

Thanks D!! I'm actually trying to talk him into the whole Rugrats gang with Angelica squaring off against Reptar as a backdrop :) For the time being though here is the pencil drawing of chuckie....

So I've finally been able to play it since my friend visited. I really like it. Oliver is kind of dense, but it looks really pretty and the story is interesting so far, along with a pretty good battle system. But the difficulty does spike after reaching the desert.

wait until you get a little freedom to start exploring..... not only are areas accessible with baddies who completely own you before you can select "escape" but a few boss battles that followed left me coffee-less and nickle and diming em' with straight up physical attacks praying for healing sphere drops to survive.... i'm a gluten for this kinda stuff... luv it
