I agree that by the end of Ys, and a fair bit before that, the combat became completely useless. Once I got to level 10, there was no more point for me to fight enemies, and I just wormed my way through them. Dark Fact is seriously an excellent boss though, hard as nails, yet epic at the same time.

Ys 2 the leveling thing seems like a non-issue now. 55 levels, magic, and tougher enemies seems like it will keep me invested for the longer runtime.

Yeah I'm playing Chronicles. I had beaten him before I posted. He was just a giant asshole. On to Ys 2! Really surprised how much I liked the game. I used a PS4 controller, and the bump system just clicks when your using a analog stick instead of a keyboard.

So I saw this topic pop up, and the Ys series has been on my radar since IV was announced for localization. So I bought the first one. Try it out. Six hours later I emerge with one thought. F*ck Dark Fact.

At least they aren't letting the milking of Persona 4 hold back a new Persona. I've been waiting for this for awhile. It looks like I'm gonna keep on waiting too. PS3...grumblegrumble.

TBH, the differences aren't THAT huge. Your going to get the same game story and experience from either side, just go with what you'd rather play as. And in any case, the anime is never a replacement for the video game.

So far I've logged about 61 hours, and am kind of on the fence whether I should try and platinum this game for my first ever, or move on to my back log, or start playing P3.

How much of a change is it going from P4 to P3? The only series I've successfuly played in backwards succession is Suikoden, everything else just felt too dated.

What kind of time investment is P3? About the same length?

Though I have yet to see the ending, this game...just wow. Not sure how I missed it in it's PS2 incarnation.

Unless you have very good resolve, getting the plat on this one is difficult. Really hard. Not because of the difficulty of the game, not because you need to max all the social links, not because after playing this three times I got really bored of it, NO. The challenging part...Hardcore...Rise...Fan...This trophy keeps me up at night.

Also P3. I much prefer P3 to P4, but its personal preference, and many disagree. My main point of the betterness within this beast is the story. Much closer to its Megaten roots then P4. It starts off slow, but it gets REALLY good.

If the AI fighting thing is too much, then get P3 Portable. I prefer FES though.

Am I the only one who still thinks of Indiana Jones when I hear fedora?

Anyway. Just got done with the second Gym. The gyms are a lot more creative this time around. They are straightforward so far, but they each have more of a cool asthetic too it.

I'm also regretting grabbing Fennekin. I love it, its just that I should have picked a grass type for the first one, seeing as I can get a free fire type from that mystery gift, and then a water type later on. Really enjoying the game though. I do not like the huge time gap between gym 1 and 2 though. Gym battles are always the progression chart for me, and if I don't fight one in a long time, I don't feel like I'm making any progress. Anyone else feel that?

Great. I'll go buy Y tomorrow. This is going to be very shallow, but as a person who hasn't played Pokemon in forever, I am now judging my purchase of each version based on the fact that I like the color Red more than Blue.
Also I hear you can get the original gen 1 starters. Is that true?
39  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Gen6: Pokemon X & Y on: October 13, 2013, 04:35:50 PM
This has probably already been answered, but I'm on the edge of getting this. I haven't played Pokemon since Diamond, and I'm wondering if this has anything that will actually make me enjoy the series again.
40  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: So does anyone think the Vita will get better? on: October 13, 2013, 04:34:43 PM
I love my Vita. People calling it the P4G machine, however much of a joke it is, is wrong. It has so much more to offer than an RPG that everyone has already played. So many great games coming out for it soon, not to mention that Killzone Mercenary. Seriously, best handheld shooter ever. You have no shortage of rpgs either, with all of the ones already on PSN. Seriously, great console.

I'm going to say, if that was the actual ending...I'd give the game a twelve. I love how as soon as he realizes whats going on, he just goes with it.
42  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Grand Theft Auto V on: September 22, 2013, 04:09:27 PM
I find the shooting completely pitch perfect. Hell, I have friends who played RDR for years, and say the shooting is pretty much the same. Hell, It feels to me like the shooting is the same. Its goddamn perfect.

Also I beat it. Freaking awesome. The game was not as boring as GTA IV or (don't shoot) RDR.
43  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Megami Tensei Topic on: September 18, 2013, 07:49:15 AM
I was rooting for Sony, but that would have probably been a step in the wrong direction. Owned by any 1 hardware company wouldn't be that great.
44  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: Grand Theft Auto V on: September 11, 2013, 11:16:40 PM
I was so excited for Tuesday, I mean GTA V is going to be amazing! Then I found out I work from 4-9 tuesday, wednesday, and thursday. I have school 8:40- 3:25. I. Am. Going. To. Never. Sleep. Again.

Anyway, according to Rockstar, 500 missions ship with GTA Online.
45  Media / Miscellaneous Games / Re: XCOM: Enemy Unknown on: August 21, 2013, 09:45:25 PM
Not even a year yet, so its ripe for expanding :D Its called Enemy Within, its standalone for 40 bucks on consoles, and 30 on PC. It adds a lot of new features like mechs, genetic enhancements, a new resource called Meld, 40 new maps to add to the 80 already in the game, this includes UFO's in cities now, which is something I wanted to see in the original.

Overall it looks like Firaxis is taking the quality of expansions of Civilization and putting it in an XCOM. Day one buy for me.
