That being said, new focus that I literally do not care about (4 star Fir's already on my A team (and dragging it down since she's only a 4 star), and I've got two Adult Tiki's to begin with).
Oh yeah the next focus is going to suck. I think all four of the units in the next focus are usable...but that is about the best that can be said for most of them. Although I think my Hawkeye might have helped make Female Robin's mission easy for me thanks to his high res and attack debuff aura. But that was a specialized case.

Eh, I don't mind giving some money to support the game. *shrug*

Not familiar with Cordelia's kit. I vaguely recall hearing that she is one of the better lance users though. Camilla on the other hand has issues with the red heavy meta/enemy units.

I have no intention of going for the lunatic arena mission. I think I have enough dueling swords to pull it off, but no that is a ridiculous amount.

Cordelia's kit is all about Alpha Striking Red Units. She sports a Brave Lance/+, a fairly large Atk score (40 at lv 40 4 star; Brave Lance+ would make it 44 before 5 star growths), and Triangle Advantage (which ups type advantage damage at the cost of type disadvantage damage). At 4 stars, the best you can do is Astra for activation skills (takes forever to charge, but adds 150% damage to the next hit), but at 5 stars you can choose between Astra and Galeforce for hit and run shenanigans (though it still takes forever to charge).

Camilla meanwhile is all about Savage Blow and not dying immediately. Even with Brave Axe+ and 5 star growth, my Camilla has 37 Atk, which isn't all that great, but she does get a +6 Spd bonus for attacking (which can lead to some unlikely doubles, even in the face of the Brave weapon penalty) and Moonbow is relatively quick to charge and can turn a series of light hits into a one-round KO. Of course, Camilla still lacks power and her HP total keeps her from tanking for any significant length of time.

What really draws you to it, Peter? I'm interested to know what you find appealing? Not a criticism at all, I'm just curious. For me, it'd definitely be in my five worst at this point (somewhere in front of II and III).

That is, essentially, what happens.

I would rank XV in my top five of the series. Not even kidding. Unrealized potential or no, I *really* like what's here.

You know playing all these old games made me realize something that RPGgirl mentioned and it's just so crazy true.

1. Pretty much every RPG of the PS era etc was of very high quality, like just about any PS1/PS2 era RPG is more fun to play than it's PS3/modern successor.

2. The PSP has a lot of amazing RPGs and is a very fun system to play on (UMD discs underrated)

Like it's just mind blowing how much higher standards they had for gameplay back then, there is something kind of soft and unstable about more modern RPGs, especially JRPGs that just makes them a lot less fun to deal with, it's all the details, little things.

PS1 excelled (in almost every genre) because there was drastic leap in console ability over the 16-bit era. Manufacturing went for around $10-20 /game all the way down to less than a dollar. Games looked so much better, soundtracks became CD quality etc etc. All the while production costs dropped significantly. You could experiment with new things and not lose your shirt if its a failure. You can make games that were impossible in the prev gen. Everything created seemed to be fresh and new. It was really a perfect storm.

I do like the PS2 gen a bit better but that's really just personal preference.

I'm old enough to live an era when arcades were a thing.

Here is the best shooter of all time: Darius. 3 monitors placed side by side.



Microsurgeon. Intellivision deserved better it was such a great console.

Now see, I've yet to drop a single cent on this game because I know it isn't worth it, but so far I've been doing well enough just with whatever came my way. Admittedly, even having a 5 star unit doesn't mean anything since it seems that Raven just straight up sucks, while my 4 star Cordelia kicks more ass than my 5 star Camilla.

That said, I'm still not looking forward to the Lunatic Arena grind since 80 goddamn battles is a bit much (60 would've not have been so utterly ridiculous, or if they had given us a full month to spend the daily Duel Swords on).

And with that said, yeah. 50 Stamina is just too low since a bunch of Lunatic Story Mode Battles require somewhere between 16~23 stamina per go, and though the recharge rate is generous enough, the low cap means that ideally you're back at it within 3~4 hours which is a rather inconvenient amount of time.

Pretty sure it's just a PS2-On-PS4 title, unless I'm mistaken. I doubt they'll do much more to it than what we saw in Wild Arms 3 or Ape Escape 2...or any of the others, I haven't been keeping up, okay?!
