I'm at the beginning of Chapter 8, and was ready to say the game jumped the shark with a boss fight occurring at the end of the last tower's altered space in Chapter 7, but equipping all my fighters with deathblow/petrification-prevention items really helped. Didn't like having to find my way out of the dungeon to shop for said items, though.

Finished off Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. Years ago my initial impression to its announcement was "What's the point?" since the original is great as well, but there are plentiful differences, especially towards the end, to make it worth a watch.

The first game definitely got repetitive story-wise.

The third main VC was done by Media.Vision as well, I believe.

I read The Man in the High Castle by Phillip K. Dick in preparation for the television series. I actually found its alternate history, especially that in the book-within-the-book The Grasshopper Lies Heavy, to be more satisfactory than actual world events.

Destiny: The Taken King - Not sure what point in the game I'm at, but I think my level's 15 or 16. Has gotten a little less repetitive, and I can own enemies with my character's current pistol weapon.

The Legend of Heroes: Trails in the Sky SC - I'm in Chapter 3 and am in the sewers below the town whose name I don't remember, looking for the "colorless fish."

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D - I'm in the Spirit Temple, and the crawlspace in Kokiri Village has somewhat been helpful.

Tales of Hearts R - Definitely feels like an old-school Tales experience, and I actually don't mind random encounters since battles don't take too long anyway, and I dig the leveling system.

So apparently DQH sold well, then?

I didn't really care much for Demon's Souls and am thus wary to try the Dark Souls games and Bloodborne, which kind of makes me wish the glowing reviews critics give them would do things such as give helpful gameplay hints instead of mindlessly gushing over the titles that they tend to do so that average gamers can enjoy them as much as they did.

Wind is one that took a long time to get used to. It's default hidden arts can be a pain in the ass, but if you look at the rest of the moveset, it's actually a very versatile armatisation.

You mean *Its* default hidden arts. Remember, it's = contraction of it is, its = possessive of it, and its' = not a word. Sorry to nitpick, but that common error really irks me.

Back on topic I'll buy and get to this game eventually, but there might be others in the series I want to play before then.

Mostly I've overlooked drops to lower floors from upper floors, as I found when I looked at a guide to the game for help on the Forest Temple, and that seems the case with the Water Temple. I do sort of wish the maps showed how floors are connected.

I beat Lost Dimension for PSVita and definitely had a blast.

Destiny: The Taken King - I've been enjoying this, but "repetitive" best describes the gameplay since I've had to restart constantly the battle against three witches that give no experience followed by a storm of enemies. I'll be able to equip much better gear after one more level, though, so I look forward to that.

Disgaea D2 - I'm on my fourth cycle, having been defeated and kicked back to Episode 1 in what I think was the last battle of the game in Episode 10. Still having a good time, though, and am taking the opportunity to level and promote my weaker party members.

Dust: An Elysian Tail - Picked this up for my iPad, and I'm having a blast. My only big complaint is the horribly-derivative plot.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D - I hate the Water Temple. However, going to that crawlspace that reveals secrets to dungeon will likely help me when I pick up the game again.

I wish again that the Dragon Quest franchise would ditch that archaic interface crap. No excuse nowadays.

Destiny: The Taken King - My first PlayStation 4 RPG, although playing less than an hour of it hasn't given me a great impression, since I died a few times in the first mission and couldn't figure out how to upgrade my abilities upon leveling, and don't like how I can't quit anytime I want. It's not bad, but I do hope things improve.

Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness - I'm on my third Cycle, having gotten a premature bad ending in Episode 7 or so, and in this Cycle I'm working on using my low-level characters in battle so I can accumulate enough Mana to promote them.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D - I got massacred by moblins in the maze before the Forest Temple, though I learned the song to teleport to its entrance and will try to get another bottle of healing potion before I tackle the dungeon.

Lost Dimension - Been working on getting S rank in all battles (which I've done except for one unrepeatable character battle), and I'm on the Fourth Floor.

Typical Sakuraba, not that that's a bad thing.
15  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Dragon Quest Heroes, CE on: October 09, 2015, 05:21:04 PM
This may or may not be my second PS4 game (after Destiny: The Taken King) depending upon what else I pick up to play this month.
