@Aeolus: I meant more the initial turn order when combat starts, especially wrt. set encounters.
I didn't say it was better, I'm just pointing it out since he might have overlooked it or not obtained it yet.
I don't have Haze yet, and I skipped out on Eagle Vision because you... mostly if I can't see an enemy it's because they're behind a tree or something, and not because of the /fog of war/ thing the game has going on.
In any case, I'm at the start of chapter 2 and just past 15 hours. This is the part where I heard it's... supposed to get interesting. I'm willing to give it another two or three hours to do that.
wrt Japanese HIB: I liked the Astebreed demo. The full game is... not very fun. Gigantic Army is pretty terrible. I'm wondering why I got this HIB now -- I guess because a couple of the games, uh,had demos that I liked/looked interesting. I keep forgetting that as a whole the Japanese indie game scene is
/not very good/
brazenly awful these days.
Whatever, I have spare Pixeljunk Shooter and Ys: Origin keys if anyone wants them.
--- edit ---
Okay I tried out Pixeljunk Shooter and it's like a less good combination of Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet mixed with a less good version of Sub-Terrania. Maybe it picks up eventually but it's supposed to be really short idk the fluid physics sounded interesting, but...
Eschatos - Got up to like... somewhere after area 14 on two credits, and up to the Chichen Itza boss before I had to continue.
Espgaluda 2 - Ran out of lives on the level 2 boss when it had a sliver of health left. I feel like I'm getting better at this. Going to screw around on level 3 in training for awhile.
LoH - Also seriously did the game just say that magnolias were a type of hibiscus? Christ it didMAGNOLIAS ARE NOT A KIND OF HIBISCUS, JOSHUA. I WILL STAB YOU I SWEAR TO GOD.
... Also was that merchant selling (misspelled) azalea fruit? Wouldn't those kill you?
