Actually I found all the dungeons in town. Except they have hidden doors. I have yet to find the *hidden doors* *within* the dungeons.

I found them by watching NPCs. They tend to just randomly wander into them for some reason.

Also did some SGF instead of, uh, cleaning out my dorm because it's not like I'm moving out tomorrow or anything. Even though I totally am. Got some decent thing for Nasukan's Boot slot, so that his wil and str are now +25. Increased Riki's HP a bit. It was lagging (well, I mean, he's still the HPest guy in the party, but...) because I had a hard time getting Shrieker stable.

I also get the impression that a dedicated magic user in SGF, like a dedicated magic user in FF2, is completely a bad idea.

By the way, is int only relevant to *learning* new magic? If so, I'll ditch my lich absorb for something that beefs up Will once I have Shadow and Mystic magic mastered.

In regards to Eternal Sonata, I thought it was a good game but it was linear to a fault. I'm all about exploration so it was a big negative against the game in my book.  Still worth playing though, for sure. Btw, I've only played the 360 version and I think the PS3 one added some junk.  Lately I've been playing C&C: Red Alert 3...Ha, that Rhymes.
Anyway, the PS3 "ultimate" edition of this has tons of value with lots of content and it seems to run better than the 360 version. I'm doing the allied campaign now and will probably check out the Empire of the Rising Sun afterward.  It's quite fun but I still suck at RTS's.

I'm still patiently waiting for UFC 2009. That game is gonna kick ass if the demo was any indication.

INT is only relevant to Gun damage and technique learning in general (not just magic).  So yes, ditch the Lich once you have all the spells you want.

And spellcasters in Frontier are amazingly powerful.  Blue is probably the single most brokenly powerful character in the game.  It just depends on which schools of magic you learn, and in what combinations.  You shouldn't really pick up Shadow magic unless you are using Blue/Rogue, because the best Shadow spell is a support spell that makes your next few spells more powerful(Shadow Servant), and you need high-damage spells like Megawindblast or Vermillion Sand, but in your case just go see Time Lord or Kylin and get Time Eclipse or Reverse Gravity instead.

But yeah, the biggest thing is to get high WIL so you can do lots of damage.

SOTN - Thoroughly enjoying this game now. Damn medusa heads drive me crazy, though. I turned into a wolf and was thinking it was pretty useless until I found a pot roast. Apparently, the dog allows for item finding. Doesn't appear to be useful for anything else. This game is addicting.
Bought me a copy of DMC4, cause I love these games. Better have an easy mode.
Saw that Fable 2 dropped in price to 29.99 on Amazon. Ordered that up.

I've played Ultimate Alliance for 7 hours now. I'm digging it. I'm on act 3 out of 5. I primarily use Wolverine and he is the only person I have been powering up with all the coins, but i just unlocked Blade last night so I might start powering him up as well. I think I like playing with 2 people better than 4. I played with a friend for like 3 hours and highly enjoyed, but when 2 others joined in it was too hectic and I just wasn't having as much fun. I didn't hate it like that, just prefer 2 or less people.

I beat Atelier Iris 2. I didn't think I could beat the final boss, but I persevered. Moving on to my game save of Kingdom Hearts. I left off at the final boss, but I need Aerora or Aeroga to stand a chance.

I played Phantasy Star III on the PS3.

The towns look the same and the character is slow and lots of weird dialogues.

Not sure if this is a spoiler:
At the start, you go to prison because your bride gets kidnapped by a demon. WTH

Regarding SOTN:
It will become easy when
Code:
you get the Crissigraem from Schmoo, inverted library
and you'll pwn the game. Yeah the game is very addicting, it's my 15th time to play it.

I was under the impression that it worked with every tech except DSC.

Jeez, yeah. Riki's is the highest right now, at around 70~ish. I want to get The Good Doctor up to around maybe 90 or something so that I can use status attacks. For the lulz.

Did some Terranigma last night. Freedom and Liore are now fully evolved. Just... need to do more sidequests, I guess. Did Dragoon Castle, which was... sort of probably the most sloppily done part of the game (They kept giving that fake-chinese accent to the wrong characters) and it also kept glitching out on me and stuff.

Also played Actraiser. This... is interesting :>

And apparently Actraiser 2 takes out the civ and RPG elements. Okay. Will not be buying that.

Oh, you go to prison because you try to commandeer the nation's entire army to go look for her. The king throws you in prison so you can settle down and act rationally.

The game's pretty sci-fi though. It just becomes apparent a little later on.

Also, yeah. All the towns do look the same. That's early Phantasy Star for you.

Hmm, it might.  I generally only used it with pure Mages though, so I'm not sure now.

FF: Nearly 14 hours.  Latest item I got makes a black wizard even MORE useless in this game.  Nice.  Still wish my ninja didn't suck though. :(  I'm starting to regret not throwing a white wizard in that slot.

Edit: I got my copy of Super Robot Titsen in but I didn't have the balls to play it during my exercise time at work.  I could have, but frankly it's weird enough playing video games.

It's never too late to start learning; it's always too early to stop learning.

Just for kicks. Before you go off to prison sell some of your equipment and buy an escape pipe. Then when you get thrown into the slammer use it to make your escape.

Played a lot of Dark Spire today. I'm about five hours in, and am still trying to figure out how to get up to the third floor. I'm having a lot of trouble with this pirate crap.

I think this game would be leagues better if my attacks didn't miss 50% of the time.  Battles just seem to drag on and on, even with me holding down the A button the whole time.

Morrowind:

Killed some dudes with my axe. Freed some slaves. Made them party members. So now including my main I have a party of five people. Yey. I don't have a clue what quest I'm going to do next. I'd honestly just like to get some money, wood, and a wood-carving kit so I can make myself some furniture, but I'd also like to start exploring the main questline and seeing what's what in the storyline as I've never, ever done that before.

Actually I have a thieve's guild quest to do. It's just that my thievery skills are too low. Namely pickpocketing.

I think this game would be leagues better if my attacks didn't miss 50% of the time.  Battles just seem to drag on and on, even with me holding down the A button the whole time.

Warriors are the only class that have decent hit rates.  Though Thieves can get better hit rates via using Hide/Attack and Accurate Attack.  If you're feeling a little grindy you can add a few levels of Warrior to any given class to slightly raise their hit rates and give them all the special attack options, like Accurate Attack and Rage Attack and what, but for the most part the only reason to ever get Warrior levels is to have one character who can wear all the heavy armor so they can stand in the front line and absorb/not take damage.  The actual physical damage from your Warrior is almost irrelevant past floor 2(The only enemy they're useful for that I've seen is Cloud Giants on floor 6, since they resist almost all magic.)

That said, learn to rely on your Mage spells.  Sleep has like a 90% chance of working and makes your hit rate pretty much 100%(You have to roll a critical failure to miss), and once you get to floor 3 things start appearing in VERY large groups so you'll want to abuse the hell out of group-target spells.  By floor 5 it's not an uncommon occurrence to hit upwards of 20-30 enemies per battle.  Also don't underestimate the power of the OHKO spells, they have good chances to work, especially on human enemies(They've saved my life countless times on floor 6, when you run into multiple groups of 9 Ninjas, ugh)

Early on, get your Priest to learn a few Mage levels(For sleep), and eventually you'll want all your characters to learn to use Mage spells and their associated prestige class(Warrior upgrades to Samurai, Thief upgrades to Wizard, and Priest and Mage upgrade to Druid)
