43 hours in and im not bored yet.  ive kiiiiinda been obsessing over the titles lately so a lot of those hours have been used through title grinding....which has lead to me being overpowered when it comes to the boss fights. 

I'm only pushing 30 hours or so in Vesperia but have encountered the same problem. Grinding for materials for synthesis has left me a wee bit too strong. The difficulty balance is the only problem I've found thus far. On "normal" fights are way too easy for me at this point, but "hard" mode doesn't so much make the battles difficult as it just makes them lengthy and (after quite a few in a row) annoying to a point.

I hope the difficulty ramps up a bit (I just polished off the events at the colliseum with Belius after the desert, really cool part BTW!!).

A Labrys

Klyde always comes armed to the fight... or just likes shouting "and my axe!"

Wow.... does that fit the bill or what!?

Based on my hints thus far, I feel like that is what should be on my finger! Lol... I was unaware of all the meaning behind the Labrys. Great wiki link. Very cool stuff.

While that may have been the perfect guess, I'm afraid that is not the answer to this riddle.

Excellent guesses! I've got a funny feeling my other open fingers will not all remain so after the fine idea's you folk are throwing out here. Of the last four guesses, I really wouldn't be opposed to wearing any of them in all honesty.

However, my right ring finger is not adorned with any of those I'm afraid.

This hint will still be somewhat vague, after this I will start getting more and more concise.

HINT 3: the SYMBOL IS OLD and while present in modern pop culture, its origins date back from long before MTV, Atari or Leave it to Beaver.

NOTE: I do not in fact think, or know, that the symbol has appeared in Leave it to Beaver. But it was a great sitcom none the less..



Keep the guesses coming and by tonite we will be on to more narrowing clues!

Nope no one got it yet, remember I was being "REALLY VAGUE" with the first one!

Actually, upon reflection it was unreasonably vague. So first I will expand on hint 1.

(The new and improved) HINT 1: a particular SYMBOL associated with or related to a particular FEMALE GIRL OR WOMAN. In other words, this symbol is associated with someone who does not or did not have a "man part".

And now, for HINT 2: the SYMBOL IN QUESTION also appears elsewhere, aside from the association with the particular female.

And lastly..

 
I just noticed your PSN name is in your signature and I do not believe you are on my friend's list. This must be rectified. Probably tomorrow.

A valued addition to my friend list you shall be Klutz!! Thanks :)

Post-hints, that's what I was going to guess. Pre-hints, I was going to guess a green lantern ring.

In case that's not right... A broken heart.

Although I'm not a lantern fan, if I were I would totally get that ring. Good idea. I may make money off the next lantern fan I run into thanks to you Took.

WOW-EE good guesses guys!

Thats plenty to get things rolling! But first I must make a few comments on these initial guesses.

@ Dincrest... It (sadly) is not the griever ring. But I may steal that idea from you for another finger. Thanks.

@ Monsoon... I actually do appreciate the Caduceus for its greek relevance but alas, not on this finger my friend.

@ Darilon.... While it is not a winking duck you get +1 for confidence in your answer.

Now for the first hint! Remember I am going to start vague.... REALLY VAGUE!

HINT 1: WOMAN, FEMALE, GIRL

Thats it. This hint will prove more relevant in narrowing it down with the hints to come, unless of course someone knocks it out of the park pre-emptively by chance.

Yep, so this week I have felt pretty down.... I wanted to do something to cheer myself up/amuse myself and decided to make this creepy creation for a lucky member of the community here!

A while back I did a little Klyde Chroma trivia/riddle contest for one of these and it was fun. So here it is folks, enter KLYDE'S CREEPY CONTEST PART 2!!!! Muahahahahaha!!!

This is the prize, an ugly piece of art created by hand by yours truly...



The contest will go a little something like this....

-First one to guess what I have tattooed on my right ring finger wins it. Simple as that. I pay shipping... don't worry :)

-For every few guesses from the community I will drop another hint, becoming more relevant and concise until someone gets it. I don't want anyone to get it right off the bat, so I will start the hints off as being pretty vague.

-Additionally there will be a surprise RPG-related bonus gift included with sculpture.

-Last but not least, I will NOT drop the first hint until a few "shot in the dark" guesses get tossed out there to ensure there is even an interest. This won't be very fun without at least a few participants... SO GET GUESSING!

not to further derail the topic but I must say I feel like a fool right now...

@ Blackthirteen- I have been coming to this site for a LONG time and somehow Eternal Eden escaped me. I just looked into it and it looks AMAZING. I am really stoked to get to this game in the not so distant future.

@ Dice- Thanks for bringing my attention to the title with your exclamatory remark about Blossomsoft's work.

Thanks Ultra! Between what you and mesh have said, I'm sold! I've got a lot of good gaming on my plate now but these Siera titles have peaked my interest and on the list thanks to you guys.

@Mesh- Summoner 2. I would have NEVER stumbled across that if it were not for you and that game looks pretty awesome man! To these ends I thank you. I will, without a doubt, be procuring this one. Something about the screenshots Remind me of Xena Warrior Princess. That is a great thing BTW... I loved that freakin' show.

I'm really glad I had the chance to complete XIII-2 before jumping headlong into this one.

So bummed I couldn't finish XIII-2 due to the extraordinary motion sickness it caused me. I was really looking forward to LR.

I have literally been somewhat down since tuesday when the demo arrived...

I've put in healthy sessions with various games of different genre's just to test it and have confirmed XIII-2 is the ONLY game that does this to me.

Its silly it bothers me considering the vast amount of other games I have to get to and how much I am enjoying Tales of Vesperia at the moment. I feel like a whiny little girl over the whole thing to be honest.

In any event, thats enough of that. I am happy hear a (somewhat) positive response to the demo. Whether I can play (without puking) or not, I still want to see Lightning do well... *sniffle sniffle*

There's always White Knight Chronicles.

I only played WKC briefly to try it out but I remember my very first impression of the battle system was that of a poor mans Xenoblade.
626  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy VI announced for iOS/Android on: January 19, 2014, 06:47:55 PM
I should have been more specific earlier.... I stand corrected. Not all of Nomura's work looks space-ballsey.

It seems to me that the space-balls style is more commonly present in games where Nomura is credited with having greater visual influence. Final Fantasy X, Musashi, The World Ends With You, Kingdom hearts and a few others all fall into this category.

Parasite Eve, FF7 (to a point...), his monster designs and some of his other work is perfectly fine to me.

I agree with Dice in the respect that it seems his earlier work is more to my liking. Whether that is because he had less creative control or his style changed/evolved I don't know...

What I should have said earlier was something more along the lines of when the Nomura signature "sci-circus from the hood" style is present, it bothers the heck out of me.

I will also reiterate my point that I don't in fact think Nomura is a bad artist by any stretch. A great deal of what he does is just in direct contrast to my own personal taste is all.
627  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy VI announced for iOS/Android on: January 19, 2014, 03:23:43 PM
Everything Amano makes is blond. The guy has a clear fetish.

And Akihiko Yoshida has a thing with thighs, and Tetsuya Nomura with stylized clothing. Every artist has a sensibility towards something in particular, that's hardly something to make a big deal out of.

Nomura's clothing disturbs me enough to bitch about it. Blonde and overtly blonde I can take. Thighs are fine. But Normura's space-balls style of dress up is just too left field for me.

I can appreciate the aesthetic of his style well enough, I'm not saying he is a poor artist. Far from it actually. In fact there are innumerable artists that I think are fabulous in their own respects. The fact alone that an artist can render beautiful art does not, in my opinion, translate well into every setting and RPG.

It is a purely subjective matter. Not an argument anyone can win really. All I am saying, while the subject is on the table, is I can really see how Nomura's style (being so different) can prove either a real draw, or turn off depending on both the setting/game in question as well as the given gamers tastes.

Whenever I see any Normura character/clothing/setting I feel like I am viewing a super-deformed sci-fi, hip-hop circus. Cool to look at. I would probably love it in an anime or movie. But I don't like sci-fi and have no particular affinity for the circus nor hip-hop and it greatly inhibits immersion for me.

Truly I would take 16-bit sprites, that leave more to my imagination, than a Nomura-heavy visual influence in my RPG's.

I sort of want FFIVDS for some reason.



So a game I've been dabbling with at night for the past year or so is Final Fantasy IV: Complete Collection. The reason I don't play too often is because I'm a bit confused. Others have assured me the game isn't any more difficult, but I've played multiple other versions at least a dozen times and I certainly don't remember enemies hitting as hard as they do in CC, or healing spells healing so little.

After failing to get a shred of enjoyment from XIII-2 I was considering IV the complete collection for the after years. I played through the original IV last year and had loads of fun. The after years content is totally on deck for me this year at some point. But I am a wee too engaged with Tales of Vesp to jump ship now.

Anyhow, I found the complete collection IV to be adequately challenging myself for better half of the game. By the end, the difficulty was waaaaay easier than the original but for a good while I thought it was really tough.

Mario 3d-World/ World 6. Not one moment of boredom whilst playing yet... good stuff... peach is the most fun to play as. I wish water in real life looked like mario water. Not much else to say about it.

Vesperia

Ghost Ship.... SO COOL! Maybe my second favorite RPG Ghost Ship ever. First favorite goes to Seiken Densetsu 3, even if the boss was cheap and damn near impossible without a magic user.

The environment of Vesperia's ghost ship was everything a ghost ship should be. The ghost enemies were adorable to boot! Although ghosts probably SHOULD NOT be adorable... I appreciated their cuteness and charm.

Mario 3d-World

Made it to world 4.

IT FEELS SO WEIRD TO PLAY SOMETHING THAT IS NOT AN RPG!!!

I put that in caps to emphasize how foreign and weird I feel playing it....

Very creative levels in this one. Thus far I feel like nothing has been recycled level to level and the game constantly feels fresh.
