Whee, I beat the Tower of Agito last night! Not looking forward to going through it a second time next go round.


Like Klyde, the story made little sense to me.
Code:
I also did the same thing you did during Cid's trials. I sent all my melee people down the magic path and was cursing up a storm at the stupidity. Gilgamesh in the purple door was harder than the final boss.

So what exactly didn't make sense about it?

Code:
Purple door? What purple door? I think I missed that.

Code:
Did you accept becoming a l'cie or no? It changes the trials and cutscenes afterward. I declined. I guess the annoying part of the story for me is they use all these words from the FFXIII universe like Etro and l'cie without ever explaining them and it just compounds. Unlike Dragon Age, the extra lore stuff is required to completely understand what is happening. In Dragon Age they completely make sure you understand the story regardless if you want to make the extra effort. Reading the lore codexs and whatnot just enhances the story. Not so for this. I needed explanations. I didn't understand all these concepts when they were in FFXIII and I damn sure don't remember it now that it's been several years. That's the whole problem I have with the Fabula Nova Crystalis games. I doesn't help that you have to play through the game twice to get the full story... I am not doing that so I just read what happens on a second playthrough and it helped clarify some things, but still don't understand how any of the Etro stuff has to do with the civil war they were engaged in for 7 chapters. It felt like two different stories to me.

I have not seen a single Fast & Furious movie yet, but it is getting harder for me not to start because this is three in a row that have gotten solid to good reviews and I like a good action movie. Should I start?

Just got the platinum trophy for this. Only took 28 hours. It was pretty easy really. Don't really have any enthusiasm to keep playing through a second play through, but I got enough enjoyment out of this. On to Bloodborne!

I'll take the world map any day. Loved having that in Sacred Stones.

Yeah if we don't get this the exact same way Japan is I'm going to be pissed. It's how it was originally intended so leave it alone Nintendo!

Doing the Tower of Agito right now. Three hundred enemies down. 201 left to go.


Yeah, I just finished Chapter 8 and wtf just happened.
Code:
You go from "Yeah we win the war!" to "The world is getting attacked by random dudes we can't see and everyone is dead with little explanation!" Woo buddy that last chapter was stupid. I was kind of enjoying the story and then it went completely bonkers. It kind of reminds me of Star Ocean 3's ending sequences somewhat.
Oh no, that wasn't my complaint at all.

Code:
What I was complaining about was Cid's trials as those were just a pain in the rear. For example I sent basically all melee characters on the use magic only trial because I had no idea of what was coming. I had no problem with the story

Ok it's official, one run is enough for me. After the last chapter and ending I don't even know what to say or think. That's probably because I am apparently not supposed to get it yet. And that my friends is bullshit.

Happy as I am that I experienced this, I will not be returning for sometime to fill in the blanks. An experience I will not forget that will sort of hurt to remember in some senses.

Well if you have any questions, I can try and help out, although I won't be getting to the new missions and such till this weekend.

One of my biggest gripes is that the game doesn't pause when you are going through the items menu and you can't see anything to move your character around causing you to just stand there and die and you can only equip one item at a time for quick use. Most of my items didn't get used because of this. Terrible implementation.
23  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Age 3 on: April 01, 2015, 09:51:28 AM
Finally beat this.

I killed all fucking 10 dragons and no trophy pop.

Fuuu,,,,

Also, I didn't get any sex scenes. What the?

Like others said,  there's two dragons that are glitched and don't count. I had to reload a save from like 20 hours earlier and slay two dragons that counted to get that trophy to pop. It's ridiculous that they still have not patched it either.

Also as a side note, F chapter 8. That is all. >>

Got the airship last night! Then proceeded to beat the second mission of chapter 7 to get a BOM 2 spell to use in the Tower of Agito.....only to discover that you can't use the airship after beating the second mission of chapter 7. Dammit. >.>

I think I am going to end up doing a speedrun on my second playthrough to clean up a few last ends before doing a best possible outcome run in round 3.

Oh yeah and to get the airship (which stays with you in subsequent playthroughs), you need to do the mission in the second half of chapter 7 which goes to Baz. Then do the mission for the persin there to kill the irons golems or w/e.

I just got the airship last night too. I'm in chapter 8 now. I feel underleveled alot in this game (I'm high 30's and low 40's right now), but that last boss was easy. I'm like 5 trophies away from a platinum, but one of them is getting 6 eidolons which I'll have to do on a second playthrough which sucks.

The amount of content you are barred from in this game without power leveling or doing things on consecutive plays is nuts. And by nuts I mean slightly discouraging. It is like they dangle in front of you the fact you are really only in the preliminaries from chapter 5 on.

Just got to chapter 8 and don't feel like I've seen nor completed a fraction of this game. I don't know whether to consider such a demand on the player to do more playthroughs a design flaw or clever bait.

If nothing else I can safely say the structure of all this coupled with the mechanics has made this one of the most unique final fantasy experiences to date for me.

Totally agree! Unless you cheat the system and get to higher levels using the secret training and moving the dates around you really have to spend way too long leveling up and there's not as much opportunity to do that because half the game is locked out for most of the playthrough and you have limited time. I consider this a design flaw because I've already spent 25 hours and almost finished the story, but barely was able to experience everything else. I don't have enough patience to play through it multiple times with games like Bloodborne waiting in the wings.

Finally finished grinding yesterday. x_x Well maybe not finished since I have yet to level grind Eidolans, max out spells, or such, but I don't need to do anymore training. Quickly got through chapters 5 and 6.

Code:
I beat the bosses at the end of both missions....I never got to see Bahamut Zero as a result. Going to have to go through 5 again and intentionally lose to see what happens.

Definitely do!
Code:
Bahamut Zero absolutely obliterates her with Giga Flare haha.
27  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD, Rated M on: March 28, 2015, 09:18:42 PM
Whee, I have over 500k SPP. I think I am going to grind out 1 million just for the heck of it. Also it is a good way to work towards getting 500 hours. But first, Killsight grinding with everyone!

Side note, the SP Crystal is amazing!

Just got to chapter 6, I didn't realize at the end of chapter 5
Code:
that dying was basically the requirement for continuing. I rage quit to the menu twice because the dragon was killing my characters in one hit and I thought the difficulty spike was absolutely ridiculous, but then some lady that I can't remember her name comes and summons Bahamut Zero after you lay there dead for so long. Only reason I laid there for awhile was because I was in disbelief at how a boss was this powerful and that they expected me to kill it (without abusing special training and getting to 99 easy, which I have not done. I'm in the 30's right now) Suffice to say I was excited that I got to continue the game haha.
Well that is going to be annoying. Also...
Code:
I am betting the woman's name was Tiz. Because I know Tiz is a woman in the game and she has yet to be introduced yet where I am in the game.

About that...
Code:
It happens again at the end of Chapter 6. Gilgamesh shows up on the big bridge (it's literally called the big bridge lol) with his theme in tow for a huge FFV throwback and destroyed me. He was also killing everyone in one hit, although I did damage him some and he is beatable if you are high enough level. I was only mid 30's and he is level 50. He killed all my characters and the game still continued without showing what happens with him at all, which is weird. Never seen a game let you die on purpose so much.

Anybody else think the trophies in this game are way easy? I'm only in chapter 5 on my first playthrough and have 72% of the trophies already.

They don't want to discuss when it is coming to PS4 apparently. Just said it'll happen and be patient. It's like a slap in the face honestly. As part of the agreement with Microsoft they cannot discuss how long it is timed exclusive. Fuck you Microsoft lol.
