So, the simultaneous 3D/2D feature on the 3DS version is apparently only limited to the introductory portion of the game. After that, you choose between which style you want, though you can switch between them on the fly.


I am totally cool with that. 

That is a neat feature, and I'm glad that choosing one or the other won't lock you out of switching. Still, I like to see attack animations, so I'd probably have to opt for 3D. I know attack animations aren't really necessary; I just like them. Due to this, I'm still on board for the PS4 edition due to the HD 3D it offers.

Unless I'm mistaken, I think Ultima Online had a choice between 2D and 3D visuals...

I'm currently working on Eureka Seven and am enjoying it, even if the protagonist is somewhat asthmatic, annoying, and sounds like he's in the middle of puberty. I hate how they don't enforce the pronuniciation of "Eureka," which often comes out as "El-Rekka," and I heard one character say it as the traditional "Yoo-Ree-Kuh" instead of the classical and intended pronunciation "Ay-oo-reh-kah."

I like Dragon Quest, but I do hope they eventually ditch some of the archaic elements such as random turn order in battle and endless dialogue/confirmations when shopping and saving.

This image sums up my opinion of FFT:

That aside, I find the Fire Emblem series to be equally flawed, though I have been enjoying Awakening, even if I've had to grind a little.

I rewatched the original Fullmetal Alchemist anime on Netflix and the follow-up movie on YouTube, and it being my first anime, I definitely have fond memories.

I hope they rectify the loading times, in addition to the slowdown. Given that the company developed my favorite RPG (Muramasa Rebirth), I'm definitely hyped.

Does anyone know if there are points of no return in this game akin to the SaGa Frontier games? If not, I might look into this, since I did like the WonderSwan Color version of the first SaGa and the DS remake of the second.

They sound fine with character nicknames (i.e. "Ai-chan"), but full, more complex character first names, on the other hand (i.e. "Akihiko-senpai")...
25  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Re: Persona 5 on: June 25, 2015, 05:33:45 PM
I just hope, as I have before, they don't reintroduce the negative elements of older Persona games such as the conversation system in the first and both parts of the second game, which drove me to a guide, not a sign of good development. I'd also say ditch the honorifics since they make the dialogue often sound unnatural especially with the voice acting (and I hope to God they don't have the protagonist's allies address him as "Leader"), and another game that takes place in Japan, The World Ends With You, did just fine without them.

I downloaded Atelier Rorona Plus recently, having played the original version yet getting stuck with a Game Over since I couldn't fulfill a request in time. This time I'll make it a point to keep multiple save files in case that could happen again.

Personally, 3 is my least favorite SO due to the vague item creation system, but 4 definitely wasn't perfect, I'll concur.

Beat it today. Was generally enjoyable, and I don't mind short games at all.
29  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Transistor (iOS) on: June 15, 2015, 06:18:53 PM
I picked up the recent iOS release of this game, and it has a bit of a learning curve but sort of feels like a cross between Final Fantasy XIII and Parasite Eve.

Any one else play previous versions or are working on the latest release? This is my first time since I don't own a PS4/Xbone/graphically-advanced PC.

I can live without 3D.
