Never got all the hate for Stella Deus, honestly. It wasn't a revolutionary game, but I thought it was well executed. I liked that game.


Its just what people do on this forum. A lot of haters here. I prefer the simple Srpgs like Stella Deus to the big fancy FF tactics advance because 1) its simple 2) actually has a story 3) is on my blessed PS2.

gah... i really don't want to replay Nocturne game a third time...


We have a heretic. You should have played Nocturne TEN times by now if not more!

Since the Xbox 360 isn't popular in Japan, Atlus games will most likely go to the PS3.

Me want Eternal Poison :D
438  Media / Single-Player RPGs / IGN on Star Ocean 4 - No ridiculous plot twist on: July 21, 2008, 07:36:16 PM
I liked SO3's plot twist, it was hilarious to me. I do aim to be amused by video games. Its not like the game's story was taking itself too seriously at any point in the game so it seemed fine to me.

Well with both FF13 and SO4 coming to the 360, I might just get a 360 instead of the PS3 afterall.

As for devil may cry 4, I can get that for my PC.

Count me in as a hater of final dungeons too. Usually by the time I've reached that point in a RPG I just want to see the ending, not trawl through a three hour long epic multi-level maze.


Heretics. I love the final dungeons like in Final Fantasy 4. Classic.

Prehaps people would like the stright up boss battles at the end of the game of Odin Sphere?

Septerra Core was made by a new company that want to make their own games. Sadly, as often happens with new video game companies, they just could not secure a new contract for a new game before the company ran out of money. Happens all the time in the video game industry.

use short charge attacks, its an easy fight and you kill them after a minute of smashing them.


I know. Doing this took forever.


Well, if it bores you thats a differnet matter.

For me, it was, specifically, those crabs you face on the second island on the shell you start on. When you're looking for that redhaired kid and the weapon smugglers?


use short charge attacks, its an easy fight and you kill them after a minute of smashing them. I never really time the battles. Just watch out, crabs are slow but have decently powerful attacks. Always have plenty of healing items.

but they themselves hyped it up as being their serious RPG


Rogue Galaxy a serious RPG? ROFL. So glad I missed the hype.

After all the times I've played the original Final Fantasy it hard for a game to seem repetitive to me.
447  Media / Single-Player RPGs / RPGs Only You've Played. on: July 10, 2008, 11:44:21 PM
Well, hey. This is coming from a guy who loves Rogue Galaxy and Odin Shere which are not liked on this board. So I might just be a crazy geeky mo-fo. And while its not the most obsure game out there its still not well known unless your RPG geekys like us. ;)

As for fully charged attacks, a walkthrough read explains it quite while. Some character have a very slow charge but their attacks are extremely powerful and can hit all enemies in a line. Against high defence enemies or low hp ones its best to use small charge attacks. However, against your average enemy you can often one shot kill them with a bigger charge. Sometimes a medium charge is needed or even a full charge to one hit kill enemies. Battles don't take long if you exploit this and experiment with every enemy you meet to see how much charge each of your characters need to one hit kill an enemy if they can one hit kill them.

The  strategic depth really comes from keeping track of what you hit the enemy with. If one character hits with a full charge then a small charge on another is all that may be needed to finish the enemy off.

As for the magic, its for specific situations only and like Final Fantasy 4 is really useless at the start of the game but very powerful late game. At the start just use heal magic to help you out. Read an FAQ to know when a specific spell is quite use in a boss fight. There are boss fights that are just impossible without using magic and with magic the battle becomes manageable.

I really recommend reading an FAQ just for the insight into the magic system because if you just use the basic one card attacks then magic will be useless. The summon creatures you can get from mixing cards are much more powerful and very much need in the game.

Most SMT games that have shown up in America have a soundtrack included upon release except for SMT: Devil Summoner Raidou Kuzunoha vs. Soulless Army.


Yes, I know. Hence the god bless Altus for being so kind to their fans.

Well, walkthrough exist for when you get stuck. ;)

If you liked it I say its worth playing through it. If not, oh well. Can't satisfy everyone.

septerra core (PC game)

As you can see the website is still up somehow even if the company is long out of business. That's probably thanks to monolith, they like their older games.  It is a little know RPG that holds a special place in my heart. Its an American game made to seem like a JRPG. I honestly enjoyed it more than the very much overrated Final Fantasy 7. Of course, this is seeing the game through rose colored glasses but I just loved playing the game.

I just love the setting, a Planet with 7 layers with the rich at the TOP and the poor on the lower levels. And you are a scavenger. From scorching deserts to fighting zombies to fighting the "chosen" angelic ships its just a fantastic game. Nice that the characters get a nice side quest to put the spotlight on them. Also helps unify the team since not all start of liking each other. Add in a little card based magic system where the card effects can be combined for more powerful spells and all this sums up to an epic game that sadly no one knows about effect for a few scattered hardcore gamers.
