So...why does no one ever mention how mind numbingly terrible the healing/re-try mechanics are in this game?

Blood Packs pretty much vanish from drops once you down Father Gassy and currently cost about 7200 Blood for a full refill. So anytime you want to try learning a boss you have to take a 15 minute grinding break (due to the convoluted paths between way too distant checkpoints) between every major attempt; completely wrecking the learning opportunity. (Not even counting if you need more Quicksilver Bullets.)

It's like they took everything good about the Souls Flasks, chucked it out, and magnified all the bad. XP

Am I missing something here? Because this is pretty much a deal breaker for me at the moment.

Rejoice since Dark Souls 3 has the glorious return of the estus flask!

I think most players don't complain about because they grind all day every day. Its what you do in this game as a long term player.

In terms of immersion, anything Looking Glass (inspired) naturally wins, after all they invented the immersive sim genre. So System Shock 2, Deus Ex, Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines all rank up among my favorite RPGs (Ultima Underworld 1&2 and Arx Fatalis are also really nice) and overall the most immersive games I've played alongside the Thief series and few other titles like that.

The most moving experience would have to be the ending of Planescape: Torment. Persona 3's ending also kind of came out the left field and left an impact.

ME is the Great American RPG. 
Not by a long shot.

i've never understood he point of a fps rpg.

Fast based combat combined with the roleplaying of a western RPG? At least, its why I enjoy mass effect. Though to be fair, I dislike the first mass effect and find ME2 and 3 great improvements.

LOL, well nowadays they don't have to worry about persona series having fans outside of japan. Not after persona 3.

Of course, I'll mention Valkyrie Profile 2's final boss, Lezard Valeth.


So many great lines

"Know that thou are truly fortunate, you are able to witness the birth of a new god!"

"Soon Lenneth Vlakyrie and I will become as one. You shall be witness to this marvelous happening. And once the deed is done, i shall destroy you all."

"Pitiable fools, does your folly never end? Very well, you are the first blasphemers to defy the new god. You shall burn in the fires of Hel for all eternity!"

"Lenneth Valkyrie, whom I sought, is no more. And it was you who killed her. ITS WAS YOOOOOUUUUU!

""If you stood with me you could rule the world under me. Why? Why do you oppose me?"

"I grant you the rights accorded to an enemy of the gods. You will live from now and forever, in an endless cycle of rebirth. Condemned in each life to be hated, feared, scorned, punished, and obliterated."

And, of course, who could forget THAT insane laugh:


Liam O'Brien is an amazing voice actor.

I think we'll just have to agree to disagree. lol I might be SRW obsessive though so my opinion is biased.

I love Z2 though that might partly be because it has many of my favorite Mecha. Heck, even though I hate Gundam 00, the 00 gundams are some of my favorite Z2 mecha. Go go Z2 all gundam teams. lol
36  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: 13 Sentinels: Vanillaware's Hot 2D Mecha Action on: September 19, 2015, 04:42:49 PM
WOW, love at first sight. Altus + Vanillaware + Mecha? Take my money already! I don't need to know anything else, just give me that game NOW!

The trailer makes me excited to hear the soundtrack for this game. Vanillaware games always have awesome soundtracks.

"I may or may not have lost faith in Japan's Giant Robot genre; thanks SRW!"

WHAT? You mean SRW games have kept your love of Mecha alive. Anything else is heresy. :P


LOL, you do look like that woman from gone girl. lol Must have made watching that movie surreal. lol

Valkyrie Profile 2 is my favorite PS2 game. I love the music, the characters, and the RPG elements. Its a wonderful full package.

I'd have to mention a lot of Bioware games since they all tend to have wonderful single player stories. Everything from Baldurs Gate to Dragon Age Origins.

Ugh, just got the game and sadly this seems the rare time I have to use a gamepad. :( The mouse controls are horrible with no way to change them. Ah well, at least the game runs well. For once a good working Port. lol
39  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, Rated M on: August 20, 2015, 12:48:24 PM
I play most of my games with keyboard and mouse including dark souls. I will probably do the same with FF type zero when I get it. I do have a gamepad for my PC but its rare I feel the need to use it.

I wish someone would make a SRW like indie game with original Mecha. Though I know its not going to happen because that would take a lot of work. Designing cool mecha, setting up interesting maps, writing good story....yeah, its not happening. But I can still dream.
41  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: super robot wars topic on: August 07, 2015, 12:23:41 PM
Oh I know that but the SRW OG mecha also get their own upgrades. Which is stronger seems Mecha dependent. Wing Zero is going to be more OP than Weiss for sure but the R-1 vs Exia is debatable and very close, even both pilots are similar since both have zeal.

That said, some of the gundams are clearly stronger than others. Wing + Deathscythe and Dynames + Virtue are clearly better than rest of their team.
42  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: super robot wars topic on: August 06, 2015, 10:58:30 PM
I'm finally able to play SRW Z2 hakai-hen. And WOW. I love it. Being able to play with both Gundam wing and Gundam 00 in the same game is awesome. (not much a fan of 00 but I like the mecha design and their theme song enough to use them).

However, having played SRW OG, its kind of funny how the original mechs feel like they outclass the gundams. Just looking at in game stats, some of the gundams are down right underwhelming compared to powered R-series or the ATX team. The animations in combat are really nice though. As others have mentioned, the MC's mecha animations are over the top and its funny to see him outclass gundam heroes.

Oh and Code Geass is included too........OMG, this is the greatest SRW game ever. I can have spinzaku, Kallen, and Ledouch on the same team. O.O

I'm all for dramatic change, FF7's dated combat system bores me nowadays. I'm all for DBZ VII. :P

Though, the be honest, I'm more expecting visuals similar to FF13's combat systems. With characters juggling enemies in the air.

OMG, one of my favorite games is being remade and updated. YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! RPG GODS, thank you!

Personally, I found the game much easier than others here because I was obsessive with crafting potions and food. Seriously, it makes the game so much easier and so much longer if you craft a ton. Oh god, the nightmares of trying to S RANK each area with every character. A challenge for the hardcore fan. lol HINT: It requires using a ton of potions for various magic effects.

My favorite was Velvet. Sigh, why did she have to be the last one you play. lol
