Yes she shows up a lot more or yes she doesn't?


I suppose I should have clarified a little bit more.

Opps. Just finished the prologue. Took me about 4 hours and I did about 60% of the quests.

Just finished Chapter 1 last night. lol. There's like 38 hours on the in game clock.

Game is a lot more fun with 4 characters and when you aren't living on Mexican wages like at the beginning, but there's way too much dialogue. Good translation, but the dialogue itself is inane and too long. I'll probably stick with this till the end. I'm betting there'll be over 100 hours on the in game clock by then.

Well, at least you're getting a nice amount of time vs money paid? I think you'll enjoy one of the longer cutscenes that occur in Chapter 2.

I play pretty similarly to Dead of Knight. My play clock is insanely long. I am at 27 hours right now and still in Chapter 1. I just like to play for a bit, browse out on the web, watch a game, and come back to it. So it is hard to say exactly how long it really is taking me to play.

I'm doing some of the quests, but not all of them. Trying to do the ones where you run into the bosses on the trail, but sometimes they don't appear.

Add me as another person who is confused about how the spell and orb system works. They didn't explain it very well, and for the advanced spells, it seems like you need more crystals or whatever than you have slots for?

I wish they'd just pay you separately in gold with monster kills rather than crystals or whatever. Reminds me of Lunar for DS in some ways.

I can't really say specifically how it works as I rarely ever paired up for top tier spells. Usually it seems to involve getting a rare orbment and pair it with two other level 3 orbments of the same element (I never tested). You have enough slots for them as everybody has like 4 'slot anything' slots and 2 element specific slots.

And I never had an issue with gold until chapter 4. This was probably because I ended up missing so many quests in chapter 3. Though I just sold a bunch of old equipment at that point and some of my stockpiled septia elements (Only time I did this). Then at the end of the game I had a good amount left over money and septia left over. I think more or less they went with a system that was a bit more 'realistic' than having monsters drop gold when they can't really carry it around.

Final Chapter is well underway now. Might finish it this weekend.

Gold was an issue for me in the Prologue and Chapter 1, but after that I didn't have many issues.

You still have several hours of the game left, don't worry. :lol:

Though I guess I'll be curious to hear your thoughts on the game. I assume you'll bring up that the game has a lot of text and that the story takes a bit to pick up as those are more facts than opinions.

So I'm on the final chapter and I'm going to go get Zane so I can be apart of his team in the arena. Is there anything I should do before I go to the arena?
Joshua and Estelle are both 24 I've bought all of the equipment I can.
Is there any items I should be getting updating my quartz etc?

Also in Grancel are there ever any requests on the board?
What level were you when you faced Carna and the others in the arena?

Just bought this game. I'm in the prologue right now doing various bracer quests. I really like it so far. Much better than I thought. It has a lot of dialogue like people said but I think it's really well done.

My only disappointments so far are that
1( It's on PSP & the graphics took quite a hit going from the PC version (although if you only play on the tiny PSP screen you may not notice)

2) There's no defend option! The closest I have is to move away...but I can live with that :)

Anyway good game...maybe great game..we'll see. Any chance the sequals will come out for NGP or will it have to stay on PSP?

2) I wouldn't bother moving away in a majority of cases. It wastes too much to do too little.

And we *should* see it on the PSP. XSeed (Well, one of their translators) said the game sold "well" which is a good sign. They (XSeed & Falcom) are having issues trying to figure out how they're going to put the second game on PSN. If they manage to solve this hurdle, the digital copy will be playable on the NGP if it releases on the PSP. However they said that if they have to they will look into releasing it on the NGP if the PSP has more or less phased out in North America. Well, not the exact words but more or less what they said.


EDIT: Didn't complete a sentence apparently.

I don't think a stretched resolution will make much of a difference. Unless XSeed could somehow secure slightly higher resolution textures from the PC version through Falcom. Very doubtful though.


I would prefer to keep it on the PSP. I have no plans to buy the NGP for quite some time. Cost is way too high for me to even consider it.

Beat the game last night, finished watching the ending this morning (it was late!).

Some random thoughts in bullet point:
-Game was way too easy for the most part. Only hard times were in the beginning when you only had 2 people and had some difficult monster exterminations. Once you get more people it gets ridiculously easy. Even the final boss was easy. After a while I just completely stopped fighting regular encounters in the game because I didn't get much EXP, no money, and they were just a waste of time. I never had problems doing this. Even in the final dungeon the toughest enemies weren't hard, they just had a lot of HP so they took a while to kill.

-Way too much dialogue in this game. Xseed did a great job with localization but they had TOO much to work with in this game. Hell, I would have been in favor of them decreasing the amount of text in the game. It's just too much, not much of it is very interesting and it's repetitive.

-Too much animu.
Spoiler


-You really need to follow a guide to get a lot of things in this game. I don't mind using a guide but if you feel using a guide is shameful, you'll miss out on a lot of stuff because it's so needlessly time sensitive.

-The multitude of quests means the story moves very slowly, when it's a slow burn as it is.

-Like one review I read said, the game brings nothing new to the table. It's a decent ride, but there is nothing here you haven't seen before, generally done better.

There was one particular chest encounter 'group' in the final dungeon that actually posed a pretty decent challenge unless I used a special. I had the 'no battles' orbment on me, which is rather nice, but it won't get rid of chest encounters. Though I skip battles pretty frequently in RPGs anyways. Outside of that, yeah, it wasn't difficult for me either. Although the final boss did almost kill me at one point.

And I actually liked the first thing you put in the spoiler tag. It was refreshing to see one that was actually played out instead of having it skip around or short and feel like a complete waste of time. Though I find the non-battle in-game fight scenes pretty amusing in general. Especially with sprites involved.

As for the guide, I don't really feel it's needed outside of maybe a few missable quests that you don't get on the boards. Even then that's only if you go for 100%, which nets you the highest rank and gives you a bonus for transferring your save to the next game.




Though in the end, did you get any enjoyment out of it? I would like to think so since you did play such a long game to the end, lol. What was your final play time anyways? And I have to ask... did you see the post-game stuff coming?

If you want to have ANY hope of getting the best weapon, you NEED a guide. That was the main thing I was referring to. The window to get the items required is absurd. However, at the very least they aren't much of an upgrade from the 2nd best. It's almost not even worth the trouble.

Yeah, I enjoyed it a bit. I have played shitty, shorter games through all the way to the end (Sands of Destruction for example), but this was a long game, and I wouldn't have beaten it if I didn't get any enjoyment from it. My clock was a bit under 80 hours, but again, a large portion of that was idling.

And I got spoilered on a good portion of the ending stuff

I am selling/trading this game, but I will probably pick the second one up. This game was enjoyable in the end, but a bit of slog, so I don't see myself playing through it again.

So I just beat the arena only took me two days.
It was really fun though. I though I was going to lose again'st the Special Ops battle though because there leader kept using body split I'm like oh crap if there as tough as the original im in trouble well they turned out to be weak. :drool: Well now I'm off to the castle are there any battles should be leveling up for? Joshua and Estelle are both 29.
I was hoping for a lot of EXPerience from monsters in this battle turned out to be wrong only about 150 from a boss battle or a guild job.
Other then that it's been a fun game. I played 2 of the first 3 but I never beat them so I gave up. I want to play the 3rd one though has anyone played it?

I hope the second one comes out sooner then later I really want to play a game like this again are they any you would recommend?

Now here's a question about the next two games does any of them have Adol from the YS Series if so then that one looks better then the first.

I have to agree with DoK. The battles are pretty easy, although you really have to watch your HP and keep it topped off because monsters can mob one pt. member.

The rewards in XP and money or whatever it is is pretty minimal except on boss fights.

I'm kind of getting sick of this game, but I always do at the 20 hour mark of just about every RPG I play.
