I trulu regret starting this game on hard. I'm an action rpg vet, I can run brave fencer musashi with ease, zelda games no problems, alundra pfft, and many others. This game makes every one of those games seem like easy mode. I would rather fight Gannondorf in the original Legend of Zelda, with only 3 hearts, and no armor than continue at the rate I am going. Between the super tiny screen, the horribly tiny sprites, and the poor coloring of enemies vs backgrounds, I am having a horrible time advancing. Bossfights are harsh, with most of their attacks doing at least 1/4 of my health per hit and hitting multiple times, and regular enemies offer roughly the same idea, ravaging me with sheer force of numbers in some cases and ridiculous power in most others. My poor thumb joint is so overworked, it's amazing.

But I refuse to give up. I will continue and I will beat this game. Not because it's good (it's not that good, maybe shoddy voice acting getting to me), not because I have some weaboo sense of honor to fulfill, no none of those weak reasons. I'm gonna beat this game because by god, I refuse to let a video game make me ragequit. 2 weeks, tops, til I finish this (I play these games for only an hour or 2 a day at most, not good with psp stuff for extended durations).

You CAN turn off the VA if you don't like it, I suppose you could even argue that it's a more authentic experience though it seems you'd scoff at that logic anyway.

Everything else is... yeah, that's why I'm on normal. Still having some difficulty with bosses, but not an unreasonable amount. Bonus in that if I try hard I'll have been prepared for it.

I'm sorry, but the voice acting stays on. As much as I dislike it, you gotta admit, the old butlery-sounding dude who does the narration doing Adol's "responses" is truly hilarious. I had to laugh the first time the narrator says "Adol gave [person in question] his name." Truly remarkable. Dogi's voice actor, however, should really take a note from the Shining Force III school of VAs.

I think honestly I'm just really not used to having to see how to deal with enemy patterns so much. I'm so used to games like Devil May Cry, fighting games as a whole, and basic turn-based rpgs that this style of play is new to me. No counter attacks, no stunning an enemy by hitting them during a move, no dodge roll (REALLY miss a dodge roll). It's so oldschool, and it's killing me more than the bosses I think, lol.

Well, you can still turn off everyone else (and vice versa) so you can have the best of both worlds. But yes, that narrator's performance is amazing, though I have a different thought than just 'butlery'.

I'm playing on hard pretty much because I played it ages ago on PC in normal difficulty, and the enemy patterns change up on harder difficulties along with just hitting harder. I'm still loving it as I did before, and loving the rush. I think its a great call for no healing during fights. Levels and equipment heavily matter, but like a more skill based approach to it, but practice makes perfect.

Really? That would not have been my guess. Oh well.

Well, it seems we have a new Ys fan.

That's never a bad thing.
