The more I play Rogue Galaxy, the more comparisons to Final Fantasy XII I find.  Action battle system

FFXII didn't have an action battle system...
hiu aren't wrong, but FF XII and RG really feel similar in little ways like character movement. I still contend that the two games have several mostly-superficial similarities.

The more I play Rogue Galaxy, the more comparisons to Final Fantasy XII I find.  Action battle system, similar types of environments, lots and lots of loot, etc.  I think that Rogue Galaxy has more interesting and distinctive characters; more constrictive, less interesting stages; and a fun battle system that would've been better with something like FF XII's gambits.  FF XII has more skill selection, but RG's make the characters more unique and both games have totally wacky skill-learning systems.  RG's items and loot system (weapon fusion, revelation flow, factory, et al.) is SO MUCH BETTER than FF XII's rare drops and Bazaar items. 

Bottom line - Rogue Galaxy is totally fun and I'm going to see it through to the end.  Working through the Gladius Towers, going for the third Key Piece.

Whatever, I just want to solve locked-room puzzles and watch anime characters of questionable or erratic moral fiber do some crazy shit.  Zero Escape sounds like the place to be for that.

So, a direct sequel to one of my top ~20ish games of all time? Sure. I'm listening.

If and when I eventually get a Vita, this will be one of the first games I download.  I loved 999 and will totally play Zero Escape.  When I have a system that can play it.

FINALLY got far enough in Rogue Galaxy to be able to change my characters at will.  I can try out Jupis for the first time!  I get to use Zegram again!  Jupis sucks!  Zegram doesn't!

The only KickStarter projects I'm in on are Project Eternity and the OCRemix FF VI project.  This game could be really cool - hopefully I manage to replay Baldur's Gate II and finally play Planescape: Torment before it comes out.

I took a break from Torchlight 2 to hit my PS2 backlog some more.  Rogue Galaxy is pretty good, but it has weird difficulty spikes between chapters.  I need to pay more attention to those lists of beast hunts.

Argo was fucking fantastic.

move on, move up


Yeah, I know.  Still stressing out when I shouldn't be, though. 

I kickstarted for my first time.

They totally needed it, too.  Barely made those funding goals.
I lost my KickStarter virginity on that one too (since then I've also indulged in the OCRemix FF VI album).  You never forget your first time....

Reconnected with girl-acquaintance at friend's party last night, getting dinner and a movie with her tomorrow.  First time I've gone on a date since breaking up with the girl who I thought was "the one".  Gonna be awkward times.  I'll consider it a victory if I don't spend all dinner talking about my ex.

Hey, good podcastin', fellas.  I think you were a little vague in your Ragnarok Odyssey discussion, basically leaving it at "it's a Japanese action RPG with loot, like Monster Hunter" and explaining some basics. That all sounds dandy to me - I sunk 200+ hours into Monster Hunter Freedom 2+Unite and another 30-40 into Gods Eater Burst - but I have weird, specific questions that I suppose I'll ask on the RO forum topic.  ...there is an RO forum topic, right? 

EDIT: Okay, I couldn't find a Ragnarok Odyssey forum topic.  I have some questions if it's cool. 

...what is the game like?  You guys mentioned multiple weapons, classes, and loot, and compared the game to Monster Hunter and Phantasy Star: Portable.  But you didn't mention anything about variety of weapons, environments, and skills or what the differences between the classes are.  What is the weapon variety like in RO? (i.e. how many weapon types are there and how do they feel different from one another, if at all?).  Is there any kind of skill/magic system and how does it work?  Are the environments big and open with large hunting targets like Monster Hunter or is it more of a dungeon/corridor grinder with a boss at the end?  What are the differences between different classes?  Can you use AI party members or is it solo-only if you play offline and without ad-hoc or AHParty?  Thanks in advance.

1.  DC gets its first playoff baseball in almost 80 years. 
2.  Make the first home game of those playoffs available only on the MLB Network (as in, not local television or basic cable)
3.  Profit?

Fuck you, baseball TV blackouts.

The Five Guys at Dulles Airport opens at 6:30 AM. I love America.

Brilliant.

Currently rolling a summoning Outlander. Starting out just throwing around debuffs, but I know it'll get better when I have more points into Bane Breath and learn Stone Pact. Still Act 1 on Veteran.
