(although you have most of Jeff's stuff by then, so you can use his items instead of magic).

Jeff's combat items are a GODSEND latter in the game. Without his combat items I really couldn't imagine having had the patience to enjoyably finish the game to be honest.

Don't worry about conserving magic -- you don't really need to. Magic butterlfies are plentifulish.

It's really not a hard game by any means. And there is an in-game hint system.


I agree with everything you said Mesh, with the exception of these two points. I can recall quite often running out of magic and being in a catch 22 situation where roaming around to find a butterfly led to fights that would force me to consume more magic to win... thus exacting a never ending cycle of struggling to move forward whilst preserving MP to no avail (particularly a problem earlier in the game).

As for the difficulty... it jumps. While for the most part I didn't have a huge problem, some points in the game proved pretty freakin' challenging to me. And it didn't get better for me as time went on. I almost ripped my hair out trying to get through Magiccant (spelling??).

So I got all the talismans and made it to final boss dragon dude...but this guy is kicking my butt.  And suddenly you're not allowed to resurrect people, so no buying your way to victory.

I don't know, maybe I shouldn't be trying to solo him.  But AI companions are dumb as bricks and are you even allowed to do this fight in multiplayer?

I have most of this dragon's patterns figured out, but there are still some attacks (like the dual tornado thingy) that seem undodgeable and still do a ton of damage.  And when the skeletons show up in the second half of the fight...ugh.  It's not like I can't deal with skeletons on their own, but dealing with them at the same time as I worry about all the dragon's attacks is a pain in the ass...

2 nights in a row that dragon bested me after a quick level-up adventure... tonite I shall not fail dag-nabbit!!! I gave up my retro-gaming-weekend-agenda this week to beat this thing so I can start tales of xilia properly, with all my focus, and THAT IS what WILL happen. Kinda feels good to have this sort of grindy challenge at the end of the standard adventure albeit a bit of a jump from the difficulty of the stages.

But damn does this game need more than 9 stages.  Seriously, that's just not enough.  You will be going back to the same locations over and over and over.  The B routes help, of course, but they still don't cut it.  Much of the stages are repeated regardless of route and many of the B routes still feel very similar to their A counterparts.  Still, they do give you a whole new set of bosses and that's good because like I said I really like the boss fights.

Vanillaware, please make DLC for Dragon's Crown with more stages.  That's all I want.

That about sums up my only complaint and desire as well, but I have yet to reach the labyrinth either. Labyrinth aside the gameworld/length feels tiny and the narrative condensed in some sense. I feel like everything could easily have been fleshed out to greater length with more environments without feeling even remotely padded in the interest of prolonging the experience.

All talisman acquired! My level 26 elf was a wee bit too weak to conquer the game on normal yesterday, but I shall not fail tonite!!

And wow did this game take on a whole new identity with network mode. Quasi-frantic action turns bat sh*t crazy and depending on the variables the difficulty really varies and keeps you on your toes. I'm not gonna lie... I think I was quite the burden to some random groups I got teamed with at first-LoL. But holy-heck is it fun!

I just unlocked network mode before I went to bed last night.

Can you only play with people on your friends list, or is it anyone that has the game?
Random groups or friend list, no choices for the randoms.

And umm... this is probably an obvious and dumb question but how do I select available friends to play with? I've only done random... As in, I go off and hit continue adventure with network mode going and end up in a party.

EDIT: Forgive me if the answer to my inquiry is in the instructions. I am off to work and can't check ATM. I am not trying to be lazy or ignorant.

45 minutes or so with Jude and milla has led me to the conclusion I have to pick milla to enjoy this. Something About Jude really irks me. His disposition is to unlike my own for me to enjoy him as my MC. Milla is at least somewhat of a weirdo and I can at least relate to that. Lol

Network unlocked! Mission accomplished! I actually pulled it off before work and didn't realize it... Just had 2 story sequences and a visit to the stables to get things up and running!

While I've been pleasantly addicted to Dragons Crown, Tales is beckoning to me something fierce. I was going to focus strictly on DC til I was through but I think come this weekend I'm starting up Tales. I've been musing over whom to pick for my playthrough too much... only one way to exercise the demons so to speak...

And on that point. I've read that picking Jude has a plot advantage over Milla but I really wanted to go with Milla. Jude, just doesn't seem the type I can relate to in any sense (though I'm not saying milla is). Anyhoo, Tales vets, I ask, is there truly a disadvantage to picking Milla??

Yeah I heard for plot it's better to stick with Jude, you get a lame reskinned dungeon with Milla -- but you get a cooler "completion outfit" for her (Jude just gets his doctor gear).  I like Jude's battle theme a lot more too so I went with him.  Knowing me I'll be playing both sides anyways eventually.

Grrrr.... this is gonna prove to be one of those instances where I gotta try both or do some you tubing to decide... I don't know why jude doesn't appeal to me. I actually always wanted to go to medical school and become a doctor as an alternative to tattooing (oddly enough). Particularly, nutritional sciences and biochemistry fascinate me.

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.

It was definately the "mood" or "tone" of the game that I adored. Stylistically the game shined and more than made up for what it lacked in terms of plot and gameplay for me. I did however like the first half of the game more than the second and would say if it still feels bland and like a chore to you by the time you get your fourth party member there may not be much to look forward to for you. The plot itself does pick up at the end (becoming considerable different in terms of its tone and gravity)  but not so much so that I would play through the rest if it were grueling to me.

I love earthbound personally but I say there are waaaaaay too many stellar RPG's accessible nowadays to waste time on something you don't care for.

Everywhere I've been has this and KH 1.5 listed for Sept. 10

What!!? So soon... I didn't check... I would have to quit everything else in life to finish the maelstrom of RPG's this fall before the next sequential releases on my "must play" list hit the shelves. Gee golly. I'm still gonna be playing these August/Sept/October realeases this time next year.

They'll repair the system any time btw, Kevadu. Mine is a launch console, and they gave me no grief.

Multiplayer mode achieved. Who's ready to do some COOP!!!!

I'll be ready by tomorrow good sir! I'd be ready to join you in co-op madness by now if I didn't spend so much time with the wizard before realizing the elf gameplay was infinitely more enjoyable.

I just played the hell out of this thing today!! I am shocked... this typically isn't my type of game (action-ee) but seriously I've had illicit drugs that were less addicting than this.
629  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon's Crown (Vanillaware RPG, now 2013 all regions) announced for PS3/Vita on: August 05, 2013, 05:44:04 PM
That is true.  You know what infuriates me more, though?  The fact that it's release is right when Phase 4 of the XIV beta starts.  I have friends who will be playing the crap out of the beta and I feel like I'm going to rush through DC and not get a great experience.

I sort of feel the same way in a different respect. To be honest, I KNOW I am going to rush the hell out of DC so I can pop in Xilia.

August is a cramped month for gaming this year.  I've said it many times: Dragon's Crown, Tales of Xillia, DuckTales: Remastered, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F... time and wallets will be drained. 

You can say that again! My total gamestop purchase tomorrow comes to nearly 300 bucks! I'm stoked though I can't help but recognize I could have almost paid off a ps4 for that-LoL

I had no idea that Angelfire still existed... crazy. But yeah this is pretty cool

That brings back memories! I remember trying to craft Dragon Ball Z fansites and pages to feature my artwork using crude html and resorting to the angelfire templates back in my youth many moons ago. Ohhhhh the nostalgia...



Very nice sprite sheet. That is some serious size for sprites :)

But what I really like is the eggatrice craft from SOM. Cool stuff.
