Multiplayer RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy XIV: ARR, a Thread Reborn

I take it back, this expansion story is off the fucking chain. I love it.

THEY HAVE CYAN'S FUCKING THEME!!!!!!!!

Neat fact with a bit of backstory on why Cyan's Theme plays and tiny tiny spoilers for where you currently are in the story(your next quest or two tells you this info).
Spoiler: show
The obvious reason is that it is Doma, the more hidden reason that most American players won't pick up on is that Hien is the son of Cyan.  Kaien is Hien's late father and the original Japanese name of Cyan.  To really cement this home Gotetsu calls Hien Shun which was the Japanese name for Cyan's son in FF6. Who knows we may see Cyan in some kind of flashback in the future because of this.

Finished Trails of Cold Steel 2, fantastic game but after 5 trails games back to back for the last month and a half I am burnt out.  But man are they great games.  Not one has disappointed me, can't wait for more.

The art style is hideous and I am not a fan of the roster but it still something I'll play.  Looking forward to Venom if he is a DLC character.

Made it to Act 2 in Cold Steel 2.  This is much better pacing than the original.  Loving it so far.

Finished Trails of Cold Steel 1 tonight.  The ending was really good but a lot of the game I think lost a bit of fun/charm the Sky games had, I think it's the repetitive nature of each chapter but its still a great game.

Going to stream Cold Steel 2 soon as well.

Started Cold Steel a few days ago and I am enjoying it so far but man the orbment system really took a step back from Trails in the Sky, it kinda bugs me that its not as customizable and in-depth, I am hoping that changes.  Still having fun with it and I'll be playing it the rest of the week on our twitch channel.

Don't be, I quit my very well paying job in April due to issues with my terrible boss and working 6 days and over 50 hours a week .  I am just doing part-time work right now.

That's how long it should take anyone going for full runs of the games to complete them, assuming you read pretty fast.

Yeah, no offense, but don't go assuming things. I read pretty fast, and it still took me over 60 hours to beat Trails 1 and over 120 to beat Trails 2, and I didn't putz around or anything either.  Though I guess my 'pretty fast' is your 'slow as molasses', from the look of things.

None taken.  I guess I just do things fast.  I just felt like the games weren't as long as everyone said they were.  I was warned like by everyone that they were super long.  In fact the SC time would have been faster if I didn't backtrack a ton in the final dungeon to match characters to bosses for dialogue reasons or try to get the Anton Steam achievement which is a huge waste of time but worth it casue its fun to wtch him get rejected over and over again.

Here is a screenshot at the end of each game.  I only looked up what was missable/hidden everything else I did by myself.  3 is super straightforward though u can't miss anything.

Trails 1

Trails 2

Trails 3

And for the record I beat every fight as well in all 3 games including the two against you know who in FC and SC.

Nope those were 100% runs I did everything in all 3 games.  I had full BP in both 1 and 2 with all the books and optional scenes and did all doors and bosses in 3.

Eh I had nothing else to play and trying to get through backlog games before Stormblood next month.

So I went through my in game time stamps for each game to see how long each took.  The first two are 100% full BP runs and the third is 100% all doors and all bosses.

Trails 1 - 39 hours
Trails 2 -  57.5 hour
Trails 3 -  41.5 hours

That's how long it should take anyone going for full runs of the games to complete them, assuming you read pretty fast.  That's really not as super long as I think a lot of people make them out to be.  In fact, if you skipped a lot of the optional stuff, played on normal or easy difficulty, and played only for main story they would be significantly shorter.

So I started Trails in the Sky like 2 weeks ago.  I now finished all three games back to back.  I really loved these games and the world its set it.  Lookin forward to Cold Steel now.

I fixed your spoiler tag Ranadiel.  You had [/quote] to finish it instead of the spoiler tag.

At least the extra dungeon was a breath of fresh air compared to the tediousness of the last couple of entries.
Actually did it all which I haven't done since Graces F.

Yeah the EX dungeon was worth it for extra story reasons and the scene at the end.  It was also kinda challening but I think it had a lot to do with understanding how to heavily exploit weaknesses to make the time attack.  Or just get a bunch of kat souls and cake walk through it.

Nah you still got a while to go.  Game was kinda long, padded by boring dungeons.
