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.

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.

I actually love the game despite its flaws. One of the best soundtracks I've ever heard and I actually really enjoyed the story. As for most people not disliking it, this is the one FF that I always find people bashing on... more so than FFXIII because people actually played FFVIII lol.

Shoutout to the Compression of Time which is so strange yet so sad sounding.  Blue Fields as well for being rather calm and similarly brings out a feeling of poignancy in me.

I also find the beloved opening sequence another ambivalent topic with me that straddles between beautiful and incredibly kitschy looking full of pseudo-wannabe-artsy effects (when the rest of the FMVs do much better, mostly because they don't try so hard).


"Whiiiiee!!" - Characters, probably

I love Blue Fields! The songs that I always listen to are Balamb Garden, The Man With the Machine Gun, I'm a Lion, and the underrated final castle song :)

I've been pissed since last night that they didn't include PS4. It's bullshit, but whatever. I guess they don't want my money.

Great Maker, Solas really hates my guts in Inquisition.
O.o I will never understand how it is possible to get Solas to hate you. He hated almost every story choice I made in the game, and he still considered me his best buddy.

Haha this same thing happened with me. He hated every decision I made, but was still like best friends with me.

See, I always like playing the tough nut bruisers, so my favorite character in Type-0 is Cinque. She can take quite a few hits and takes down most scrubs in a single hit.
You should use nine. He moves slower than poop unless you dodge, and hebhits stupidly hard.

I'm using Jack. He moves ridiculously slow unless you dodge, but he kills like everything in one hit and has counter.

Like you guys have said, the small font is ridiculous. Even the HP numbers at the bottom right are too small. They need to be bigger. I died a couple times because I couldn't tell what it said and it's in a weird spot.
43  Media / Game Journals / Re: A Game Journal Reborn on: March 21, 2015, 12:07:54 PM
Been playing Type 0 HD. At first I was hesitant because there's SO much crap they throw at you as soon as you start it is overwhelming. After literally just walking around and talking to people for a couple hours I know what I'm doing and the game has been pretty enjoyable, but this is dense stuff. The story is still all over the place, but the combat system is fun when the camera and lock on isn't ruining it. I'm finally starting to have fun, so hopefully it keeps up. Just started chapter 3.

The ONLY reason I'd say you should finish it is because the finale is absurdly awesome. And also because from what I understand, this scenario won't actually be in the full game!

Well, you convinced me. Gotta finish this tonight after work now haha. Thanks for the info!

I liked what I played of the demo, but I didn't finish it. I liked the voice acting so far and the graphics are great. The problems mentioned in the hands on preview for the site are pretty spot on. Camera goes crazy sometimes and needs fixed and they need to speed up some stuff. Other than that though, I came away pretty impressed and hyped up. I kind of don't want to finish it just so I experience this segment in the game the way it was intended on the final release. Sounds weird, but I always do this with demos. I hardly every finish them. I just use them to get a good feel for a game then quit.
