Meh, nevermind. I did some grinding with Aqua at neverland, got all abilties, picked the best commands for my deck, did a few arena battles, got bored and just made a new Final Episode save and beat the game. This is enough for me, it's just not as fun as finishing stuff in KH 1&2. I blame it being a portable game, though admittedly it's got a pretty good quality in being one. Anyway, back to waiting KH3.

So I unlocked the Final Episode in BBS. I was thinking of buffing up Aqua a little and maybe do a bit of Mirage Arena with her, but how does this save even work? Does it just use clear save from Aqua or something? I have to say this is one of the oddest save mechanics I've encountered in a while (basically the opposite of imaster sp, which has three games using one save and this has one game using three or four saves.)

I read a rumour there wouldn't be random battles anymore which would be a welcome change if true.

Or not. I just used Yangus's skill to avoid encounters and whistle to call metals.

As Terra you should have done at least a few of the Arena battles until you get the Xehanort Report, since you need to collect all of them to unlock the extra episode.

Okay, that sucks. Unless the game is smart enough to record progress on a complete file without the need to beat the boss again.

Impressions on Ventus: WEAK. Well, he doesn't die as easily as Aqua a the start, but going to playing with him after just playing with that absurdly powerful keyblade Terra got feels meh.

Also I started Apollo Justice. I like it, feels like Ace Attorney, even if it might not live up to the glorious build up and finale of the PW-trilogy. This is just what I need.

I should watch that one too, since it's probably the closest thing there ever will be to a fully animated Five Star Stories.

However, I started watching Gear Fighter Dendoh instead, the supposed would-be-last Yuusha-show that didn't end up as a part of the franchise. I've heard many say it's a hidden gem on par with GaoGaiGar and I'm digging the action and tech detail (dem tires yo). There also seems to be a ROBOT UNICORN in this and I'm really hoping that Dendoh will be riding it (though likely it'll be just a gadget). The only thing I'm really missing is a manly pilot screaming like crazy.

I also got Witcher 1 waiting. Played a whole hour of it. I also got Summoner and a bunch of King's Bounty, but here I am, playing KH.

Both Terra's and Aqua's story are finished and I just started on Ventus. I haven't pretty much done any optional stuff, except loot the worlds before moving on to new character. Maybe after Ventus I get some time to do that or something, I don't know. The fun curve in this game is bollocks.

That said, my top 10 for the OP's site would be:

Time and Eternity
From the Abyss
White Knight Chronicles (1 & 2)
Beyond the Beyond
The Granstream Saga
Criminal Girls
Lunar: Dragon Song
Lufia: Ruins of Lore
and two Idea Factory/Compile Heart games of your choice.

Fine picks, but come on... no Quest 64, Unlimited SaGa, Last Rebellion or Lord of the Rings (SNES)?
8  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Top 10 RPGs Poll on: May 18, 2015, 11:54:26 AM
Chrono Trigger
TES: Morrowind
Star Ocean 3
Valkyria Chronicles
Atelier Totori
Dragon Quest VIII
Kingdom Hearts II

Something like this. I'm not writing descriptions about 10 games, though. Also yes, I only play WRPGs if they're Diablo, Diablo clones or TES.

TitS is finished. Not a bad game, though I'm not certain if it is very good either. It's like playing Grandia with less fun combat and with 10 more text. The monster chests started to piss me off in the last dungeon, because every chest with something useful in it was guarded by a mob that needed some CP grind to defeat. That is like a dozen chests with the hardest mobs of the game in every one of them. I guess I'll join the sidelines waiting for SC now.

I also did some more Kingdom Hearts BBS. I'm at Neverland with Aqua. The deck system is still not to my liking, though I did gain more of it when I just started melding like crazy to gain abilities. Still the core problem remains, which is the random nature of it. Every few minutes I'm swapping out commands for others that are not necessarily even better or very contributing to the playstyle, but that's also the only way to gain abilities so it feels kind of counter intuitive.

Oh, I didn't mean to say it is short game or anything. It's definetely a long JRPG and I have a ton of hours clocked in it too. Not nearly as much as in FF XII, but yes... it is a heavyweight no noubt.
11  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Quest VIII on 3DS on: May 15, 2015, 02:37:02 PM
The only thing anyone should grind is metals, hopefully with both the axe critical for Yangus and spear critical for hero unlocked. Without those it can take a while. As for how far to grind... well, even to 99 shouldn't take over 100 hours with beating the final final bonus boss and getting extra ending, but that is overkill. It is doable with like hero at lv 63 iirc, when he gets the special skill. Anymore is just for skill points.

The one thing the game should do is reveal the skills, so players can plan a bit without a guide. Other than that it is fairly intuitive, especially the alchemy system, so I don't think it would be wise to mess with that too much.
12  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Quest VIII on 3DS on: May 13, 2015, 08:27:05 PM
Yeah, the reason is that the rest may be good on their own right, but they're also "classic", like overhead view and sprites stuff made for portables or older gen consoles. VIII is "classic" in many ways, but it's got a big 3D world and models that weren't atrocious tier either so it felt like a long awaited upgrade (that never happend again.)
13  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: What's the haps? on: May 13, 2015, 11:42:58 AM
Or don't bother at all and live as some sort of monk (prefer this word to neet). Not wanting things all day everyday.

Which is a real problem though. I think I haven't really grasped the concept of wanting things in my life. How to want stuff, I still don't know and most likely never will. Even though I realize that things are just a means to gain experiences. Meh.

Unfortunately this game is full of missables. I don't really care too much and won't be carrying over any save data anyway (at least now my own), so whatever. Also the gear in this game is super linear and classic to the point of boredom, probably the game could pretty much drop the entire system in favor of level gains/orbment and I wouldn't notice.

I'm quite glad I don't give a flying fuck about what costume my character's wearing.
Curently playing Xenoblade 3D. I mostly just see them as an inconvenience.

Naked Dunban on Valak mountains, yo. And everywhere else.
