Whee, I have over 500k SPP. I think I am going to grind out 1 million just for the heck of it. Also it is a good way to work towards getting 500 hours. But first, Killsight grinding with everyone!

Side note, the SP Crystal is amazing!

Just got to chapter 6, I didn't realize at the end of chapter 5
Code:
that dying was basically the requirement for continuing. I rage quit to the menu twice because the dragon was killing my characters in one hit and I thought the difficulty spike was absolutely ridiculous, but then some lady that I can't remember her name comes and summons Bahamut Zero after you lay there dead for so long. Only reason I laid there for awhile was because I was in disbelief at how a boss was this powerful and that they expected me to kill it (without abusing special training and getting to 99 easy, which I have not done. I'm in the 30's right now) Suffice to say I was excited that I got to continue the game haha.
Well that is going to be annoying. Also...
Code:
I am betting the woman's name was Tiz. Because I know Tiz is a woman in the game and she has yet to be introduced yet where I am in the game.

Whee, 8I've been grinding SPP basically nonstop for the pat day and I am now at 270k. Don't have time to finish the mission before work.....so I guess I'll end up somewhere north of 400k by the time I finish.

Movies
Terminator series. Loved the first two, but then after that they started rehashing/retelling history than started to convoluted the storyline. The new one coming out this years looks interesting visually (and has the girl who plays Daenerys in Game of Thrones), but I'm not sure where this story, "Genesys" fits in the general Terminator timeline...
Genesys is an alternate timeline version of the original Terminator movie. Side note, first two Terminator movies were both done by James Cameron while the rest were done by others.

They don't want to discuss when it is coming to PS4 apparently. Just said it'll happen and be patient. It's like a slap in the face honestly. As part of the agreement with Microsoft they cannot discuss how long it is timed exclusive. Fuck you Microsoft lol.
Of course it is part of the agreement, the point of Microsoft giving EA money is to create a sense of urgency that makes people feel compelled to pick up an Xbone. You get less of a sense of urgency when you know it is coming out next week (or more likely next month).

Just relax, it will come out soon enough and you aren't missing any important story points while waiting.

its because they have a deal with microsoft for dlc to be on xboxone first.
Which I think I recall hearing months ago only applied to the first DLC. Then again, I have been hearing that the DLC is basically just a new zone like all the others in the game, so it might not even be worth getting. *shrug* Not like I know since I have the game on PS3.

... I believe in a sequel ...

Well, "in THE sequel" than "in a sequel" soon enough, and if so, I agree 1000%, I'd love them to work with what's here because it shows a ton of promise (and is still a unique and fun for what it's worth!!).

Maybe spoilers? http://www.siliconera.com/2015/03/23/square-enix-showcased-artwork-final-fantasy-type-next/

Oh, anyone know how to get the Summer uniforms?
Score 30 killsights with the character that you wanna get the uniform for. For the formal uniform, you need to have a rank of supreme commander which is obtained from collecting a total of 20k spp.

Cheap advice for spp farming, do the mission where yoh fight brionac in chapter 3 and bring in someone lime deuce who can buff from far away. Only bring her put first, and have assitance on so you get the sp guysand when you get to the sewers, jist let the allies beat on flans and stuff for a while. They never stop spawning, so you can cheaply sit there for a while and build up. I got like 13k off an hour long attempt.
Alternatively, get avoid magic and a rubber band. Equip Deuce with the avoid magic and equip your controller with the rubber band over the attack button and leave Deuce in the sewers while you sleep. Her constant attack combined with avoid will keep anything from killing her and the allies will keep coming in all night. Once you get the SP Helmet you might not even need the attack button (assuming you mess with your power save settings) since you can avoid all day then. I've seen reports of people getting 35k to even 70k (in a really good sitting). I actually did this last night and it looks like I got somewhere north around 21k . Pretty good considering that my Deuce is OHKOing anything that gets near her significantly cutting down how much I am earning.

Although if you do sewer grinding, make sure that you turn off reinforcements before the mission is over after you have stopped grinding because I have read that if a reinforcement dies during the mission, you lose all SPP earned by characters with the same name, so you can end up losing everything you earned as a result. The final fight will basically OHKO any NPCs......so yeah, be careful.
52  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, Rated M on: March 24, 2015, 06:51:55 AM
Killsight grinding finished on Ace and Duece, doing this on everyone is going to take forever. >.> Taking a break from it though so that I can get through chapter 3 and get access to the best map for SPP farming!

Apparently, Deuce is a monster. Give her avoid magic and you can pretty much stand behind a wall and murder everything. Don't ask me how this works, I keep dying everytime I use her.
I think there are two ways to pull this off. One is to use her basic attack which has an area of effect and also a whisp which goes and attacks enemies (although I don't fully understand how that thing works). The other is to use one of her abilities to constantly force your allies to attack. That is the secret to SPP grinding.
53  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, Rated M on: March 23, 2015, 07:07:55 AM
Well I have now finished leveling all of my characters up to 99. I have now started killsight and just general kill grinding to unlock some weapons at the shops.....not that I'll be able to afford them all for a while considering that I have 14 characters to equip, but I am using this as an opportunity to get used to everyone. Side note, Duece is a pain in the rear to get Killsights with.

Don't get me wrong, level 99 for a single character can trivialize most stuff, but you get fights like a random eidolon that will eat you up, and overworld enemies at 99 that hit stupid hard... being 99 doesn't give you a free pass, just makes it easier to deal with.
Wait a sec, do world map enemies level to match you? Oh god this is going to be interesting if I don't get some better weapons.

Great Maker, Solas really hates my guts in Inquisition.
O.o I will never understand how it is possible to get Solas to hate you. He hated almost every story choice I made in the game, and he still considered me his best buddy.
55  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, Rated M on: March 22, 2015, 07:26:40 AM
Just beat the first mission of chapter 6. Last fight of chapter 5 pissed me off hard, my rem kept dying so I reset like 15 times, then I finally gave up when the boss had like a pixel of health and my fire spell missed the breaksight and I got 1 shot (level 99, 160+ defense, 2300+ health, still 1 shot).

For any of you that didn't know about it, there's an abusive trick you can do for free level ups. Use at your own discretion, but bear in mind that even my 99 rem was getting slapped around by some enemies, so it doesn't exactly break the gamebut you will be hitting like a freight train early if you max rem since she has the highest magic ratings in game.

Code:
Start the secret training in the arena, jump to your psn menu and go to the options menu, then date and time, and move the date forward. I just jumped it up a month every time since it's the first option but I think the max bonus caps out at 24 hours, so your call

I think I'm at like 400 killsights with her already, maybe more. Rem is the most op character in the game, with Queen and Cater as my number 2 and 3, and Seven as my number 4. Eight's kinda fun, but overall I hate the male characters. They all feel oddly clunky, especially king and nine. Nine ia just a dopey fuck and his sword can eat a massive wad of used toilet paper.
I learned about the trick last night on gamefaqs and proceeded to max out Ace. Planning on maxxing everyone out today. Sad to hear though that enemies can still slap you around though. Oh well, still going to max them all out....because managing the levels of 14 characters (when you can only level 3 at a time) is just insane.
56  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Digital VS Physical on: March 21, 2015, 07:55:46 AM
Physical edition all the way! Collector's edition if available. I detest the concept of my access to a product being at the whims of another individual/company. It may be that it is their best interest to ensure that the product is always available to me, but there is no guarantee that that won't change in the future. For example, I am pretty sure that Sony will pull the plug on PS3 access to PSN someday as at some point it just won't be economically justifiable. At that point, I would be losing access to any games thqat I might have had to delete for space on my PS3's harddrive, and if the system ever died then I would permanently lose access to all digital games and DLC (which is sadly a larger number than I want to admit).

Plus, I like having a large game/manga/dvd collection to show off in my living room (although I need to buy more shelves >.>). I will always buy the physical edition unless there is no physical edition available or the physical edition is out of print and getting a copy is unreasonably expensive (and sometimes I'll do it even then....looking at you Fire Emblem 4 soundtrack).
57  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, Rated M on: March 19, 2015, 06:26:00 AM
DIFFICULTY/ Does anyone know if there is a content penalty for playing on Cadet?? I have been playing on Officer just in case, because I heard rumor that certain things can only be done/seen on officer and up but I haven't been able to confirm this. I ask because some of these side missions are seemingly impossible without turning down the difficulty, grinding my ass off or simply tackling them on New Game +
I checked on the Gamefaqs message board and according to what I saw, no difficulty does not impact content or trophies.
58  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: March 17, 2015, 07:02:24 AM
Made a top tier dimension bomb in Atelier Shallie last night after a lot of work.....unfortunately it is extremely underwhelming. >.> At least my auto full heal elixir works how I expected it to. I guess I should work on making some more top tier items to see if I can make better bombs with either of Stera's unique bombs.

That's...not a good system. :P

I should be able to tell what I've to do at a glance, it doesn't really matter what I did to unlock it, just what I need to do to complete it.
As I said it was poorly thought out. :p The secondary tasks are where the system messes it up. It should just list the next task you have in each category and have no tasks unlocked when you reach that next task. But that's not what they did, and what they did is confusing design. But at least you know what to do now.
59  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: The Atelier Series on: March 16, 2015, 06:14:49 AM
Atelier Shallie is out but no one here is talking about it. I've not played much yet but it seems like it will be another good game. It is different to play not having any time mechanic but Iam starting to get used to it. The two stories seem ver different from each other unlike Escha & Lodgy where they meet up right away I am in chapter 2 and have not teamed up with the other Shallie yet. From what I hear the stories are much more different this time so replaying is pretty much a must.

The only thing to point out is that there is a bug that makes the game crash when opening the Growth System menu that you unlock at level 40. A patch is one the way and people say you can finish the game without it (you'll just be less powerful).
Eh they meet up around chapter 4, so half the game is mostly the same (I assume).

The game doesn't crash when you open the growth system menu and you can actually use nearly half of it. Basically you can move around the stat boost icons without fear of the game crashing. I'm currently grinding end game properties (damn it phoenix drop Super Properties already so I can make an uber bomb to make grinding you faster >.>) without having touched it for the most part.
60  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: March 16, 2015, 06:09:58 AM
I'm starting to worry quality control didn't exist in Atelier Shallie. As far as I can tell all the descriptions for my free time events are mixed up with one another and not to mention the game breaking glitch regarding the Growth System when you hit level 40.
They aren't mixed up, the naming scheme was just poorly thought out/explained. The names of the free time events are what you have to do to gain the free time event not what you have to do to clear the event. So as a made up example, if you talk to 10 people you get a task for beating 3 enemies. The task would be called "Talk to 10 people" instead of "Beat 3 enemies." Reason for this is probably because this gives it a unique name as there are many instances of beat 5 enemies or make a magic tool. Also this way you can quickly tell which events you have already unlocked and which ones (based on patterns) you still need to unlock. You can quickly view what you need to do for your unlocked ones by hitting square.
