So I'm at the boss in the Desert Temple.

I have *no* health potions.

I suck at bullet hell shooters.

I am literally stuck.

I don't think I'm going to be able to complete this game, which is incredibly frustrating.

Yeah I can get past the rings, and even kill the arms, but once I get to the last part, I just die repeatedly.

The frustrating part is that if you continue you start with almost zero health.

I don't know if I can be bothered starting this over.

I got past this part eventually, might want to look up videos or a strategy of some sort. The Dark Lance spell helped A LOT with the earlier parts.

Also, if it's any consolation this is pretty much the only part of the game where this can happen, I suppose it could theoretically happen at the end too but 1. there's no save points anyway and 2. you're probably ridiculously overpowered and thus can make the game a non issue.

ALSO: you CAN adjust the difficulty on the fly unless I'm misremembering, so you could try toggling down to Easy if you don't give a damn about achievements (if there even ARE difficulty achievements).

You can change it to easy at the main menu and there aren't any difficulty based trophies.

I actually looked in the options in the game but didn't see it - do you mean the main menu before you load your game?

Correct. Not fully sure if it'll apply to your current game, but at this point anything's worth a shot, yes?

Yeah, you can only change the difficulty before loading your save file and it will apply to all saves. Additionally, having the game on easy decreases the drop rate of rare items. It's not really that much of an issue seeing as how you will still get enough items to upgrade at least a few weapons.

Aside from changing it to easy, use Dark Lance for most of the fight with words that increase the damage and decrease the cost. Also check if you have any words that will increase magic regeneration and magic defense.

Yeah, it worked. I got past the boss and now I'm in the Forest of Dreams.

Text adventures! :D

Thanks for the tip, I appreciate it.

Are there any differences (Technically) with the PS3/360 versions?  I really want to buy this game now that its $19.99 brand new on Amazon.  From what i've heard of the soundtrack....holy crap its amazing!  I may have to buy both the game and soundtracks.

So I got the "halfway" mark or whatever you want to call it tonight.

Holy smokes. The game really, really picks up after the desert temple. Didn't expect it at all.

Really sucked me in, and I can't wait to continue playing this weekend.

Code:
Poor Emil

I think they're damn near identical, with perhaps a slight advantage to the 360 version. It's the version I got and it ran fine, and it was the lead platform so it's a safe bet.

Just finished my first run and got Ending A.

The only thing I didn't like was
Code:
Popola and Devona being villains - seemed a little Shymalan twistish for my tastes, otherwise it was good.
