Ps one of the previous games let you change your face a bit in some Mage lair. Is there anything like that here?


Did anyone find something like this yet?
Nope.

I know the game is old but recently I decided to get Mana Khemia from the PS store fro the Vita. I knew beforehand the port didn't run well on the PSP but I read somewhere it ran pretty good on the Vita and I can confirm it does.
It does take a while the get used to the muddy backgrounds but the game is great. It starts slow but the characters, the battle, the level up system, the alchemy, it all works so well and they all make the game so much fun.

I became a fan of the Atelier series during the PS3 era so I didn't play any of the previous ones. I didn't have much expectations for this game but I can safely say it surpassed them already and I'm only about 12 hours in.
If anyone here is like me and started playing the Atelier series recently and didn't play the old games, I can already recommend this game. From what I've seen playing it on a PS2 should be much better since it has better visual, loadings (although the Vita loads it instantly) and dual audio which the PSP version doesn't have.

I bought this game while waiting for my copy of Escha & Logy to arrive from mail and now it is still closed while I play this game.

So, anyone else have played this or the sequel, Mana Khemia 2?
Mana Khemia is one of my favorite games from Gust (and probably somewhere in my top 20 games). The characters and plot are great in MK. MK2....it isn't bad, but it is nowhere near as good as MK. In addition to MK2 having more annoying characters overall, the two major plots in it were forgettable (literally as I can't remember how they ended despite still remembering the major plot ending and most of the character endings from MK1).

Wow that is a lot of power. I guess you earn a lot more power later on. Or I have not played enough or doing the wrong things. I also feel lost when it comes to crafting. I still use the pre order gear. Most loot is just trash.
You gain power from just about everything you do. I'm a completionist so I did so much stuff before visiting the Crossroads in the first mission that I had already killed the first dragon you can encounter.....who is level 12. >.> Don't follow my example, just keep exploring and completing quests and you'll gain power naturally. Also just realized I worded my last post poorly, I meant the last story mission I had done not the last story mission in the game. x_x. Side note, wiped out a good chunk of my power unlocking optional areas yesterday.

Loot should get better over time. I think it is randomly generated based on your level for the most part.

there'll be requisitions that you can do over and over again by turning in materials and give you power and influence so don't worry too much about those. I'm just sitting on like 200 power, also, it does matter who you send on the war room missions so make sure to read what each of them want to do.

Eh I find requisitions to be a waste of time unless you need a quick point and happen to have the items.

Just got to Skyhold. Loved the mission immediately prior to Skyhold.

I think the affection system in this game is going to end up being my least favorite. I have absolutely no idea of what most of my companions think of me and barely any sidequests really seem to have any impact, so dragging them along doesn't seem to help. I'm sure the underlying number are the same as DAO, but with next to nothing to go on (other than divining their mood from their first line when you talk to them) it can be confusing.

I started going after the main story and I am enyoing it, but the system of power seems a bit strange. It seems very much like Saints Row 2 where you had to do side stuff to get enough reputation to do the main missions. 15 power needed for the next one and it seems fairly slow to gain. Not that I am not enoying it but it feels a bit restrictive.
Eh 15 power isn't that bad, I've got 91 power at the moment. Had 101 before doing the last main story mission. Of course I also killed the first dragon prior to entering the Hitherland crossroads....so yeah I'm doing things in a weird order.

Like the new Zelda costume and Dominion Rod is an interesting choice. I had seen speculation that it could be a weapon for Zelda so not too surprised. Betting there will be some reference to her armor form from one of the portable games(forgot what game that was).


The Postman Costume? Really!? Couldn't even go for something like the Magic Armor or Zora's Tunic, let alone anything from TP!?!

At least I called the Dominion Rod (and I'm glad it went to Zelda, since while the joke that Link's arsenal allows him to counterbalance his own harem is amusing in a *nudge nudge* *wink wink* sort of way, its definitely more preferable to be able to spend time elsewhere).

Also, what I wouldn't give to see Ganondorf hijack Kingdom Hearts. Especially now that he has the Keyblades for it.
The Zora Tunic and Goron Tunic are already in game.

Nexon (yes, that Nexon) is making a Ghost in the Shell FPS.  While it looks decent enough I do have to wonder...why Nexon...
Never heard of them, so could you provide context on them?
247  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Zelda Musou on: November 19, 2014, 05:18:55 AM
I also wouldn't mind if the new weapon is the Double Clawshot.

But we already have a Clawshot as an item. And what would Double Clawshots even do? Bring down two Majora's Mask's Moons at a time? That's just silly.
I can imagine the double clawshot being an absolutely crazy crowd control weapon where you fire it off and then swing the chains as whips. I'm hoping they go with something else because Link has more than enough weapons, but I do think an interesting move set could be made of it.
248  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Zelda Musou on: November 18, 2014, 04:39:10 AM
Does this count as a new member of Link's harem or an alt for one of the game's best characters?
Apparently she is the new character for the next DLC, so let's go with new member of the harem since her and chibi Midna can both be on the field at the same time.

Wonder what the new weapon is going to end up being.

I'm guessing it's deliberate that the very beginning of Xillia 2 makes no sense.

All I got from it is that I'm a failure and I have a fugly cat.
He is the king of cats, and you pay his royal highness the appropriate respect!

So on the topic of the Keep, I've been reading on the official forums that one of the options in the Keep has the potential of causing one semi-major character to become possessed by a demon (unless you kill the character when they are being possesed) or be perfectly fine depending on your choice in the Keep. Not going to spoil who or what choice, but yeah there are apparently some potentially major impacts based on the Keep.

Spoilers regarding who is in the game but not in what capacity or any context.

Code:
There are cutscenes that feature classic characters. Before these scenes, you're asked if you'd like to customize the appearance of that character, for example, Hawke. You get to use the DAI editor.

That isn't really a secret, the character appears in trailers and the character creator bit was mentioned in a tweet by one of the deevelopers.

You must have watched some seriously fucked up cartoons back in the day, because unless it was Itchy and Scratchy, there weren't too many instances of characters going full on no-face.


As for the VC thing kicking the AC thing's ass, all I want is for SEGA to recall that there are markets beyond Japan's.
She's talking about older stuff....well unless you get into anime. Then the caricature she is talking about shows up in more recent stuff. Like Mr. Popo in DBZ. Unless I am completely misinterpreting what she is talking about. >.>
252  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Age 3 on: November 08, 2014, 06:06:34 AM
It does not impact DAI. Data from your playthrough is saved to the Keep (currently not visible) for potential use with future games or maybe DLC. Personally found the game really fun.
253  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Zelda Musou on: November 06, 2014, 06:43:03 AM
Both preordered. I'm sure if there is a Gannondorf one in wave 3, we'll get a new weapon from him also.

Finally got around to playing Illbleed. What the hell :DDD This actually reminds me of Shivers for... some reason, which is weird because Illbleed's essentially Blue Stinger 2 and Shivers was Myst clones. Anyway Illbleed's legits creepy in spite of being /intentionally/ campy because of how screwed up everything looks.

Oh wow, I remember Shivers. That was an interesting game. I can't remember if I ever actually beat it or not.

Thinking about it, I now recall that I used mods to change the appearance of most of DA:O. I modded:
- Alistair
- Morrigan
- Leliana
- Wynne
- Sten
(no mods for Oghren or Zevran because I don't like them; not because they look any good)

In DA2 though, the only character I modded was Aveline (I've spoken prior of my opinion of her chin/jaw)

I guess the DA2 characters did look better.

Same here. Although I played the games several times on 360 before I played a modded version on PC.

Keep is being released soon right? Is there a release date?
Keep's open beta started yesterday.
