Nope, I'm playing on the PS2. I haven't noticed any battle loading times longer than maybe a minute. Sometimes they take longer, though? Hope it doesn't get any worse for me @_@


At worst maybe 5-10 seconds... you don't think you're exaggerating?

Probably was, but either way, they take longer than is reasonable.

More specifics?


Gizamaluke's Grotto, as I'm trying to catch up to the princess. I save the moogle, climb up, and there this big ass dragon.

You're not supposed to go there yet (as I recall). The dragon appears on the overworld, yes? That's a great grinding point later, once you can handle it, but it's kind of a "trap area" at this stage of the game. IIRC the moogle explicitly tells you not to go there, you rebel you.

Think I'm probably only a third of the way through Persona 2. I really need to turn off battle animations to speed up combat. I wish more games did an auto battle feature though.

So, where do I go? I think it was Freyja who was telling me that's the way I needed to go.

Edit: Is it the other exit from the bell room I couldn't open?

Edit2: Apparently that is the way to go according to walkthroughs.

Been replaying Ancient Ys Vanished aka Ys I (via Ys I & II Chronicles+ on Steam) this weekend and am near the end, though it looks like I'm currently missing an item. Really liking this remake, though it seems that it's harder to figure certain things out than in the Turbo CD version (it's been awhile since I played that, though, so I could be wrong). Having Adol and the enemies being able to move diagonally has also made battle a little tricker/more interesting.

If this is your first time going through, I think you want to skip going up.

I play bad games

If anyone isn't going to use their code I'd love them forever.

I don't like Godzilla.

There are just so many un-Godzilla like things it should be easy to see why people didn't like it (also the annoying cast). Zilla being killed by missiles was the biggest thing that bothered me Godzilla is supposed to be far stronger than that. The army shouldn't be able to hurt Godzilla unless they are using something like MechaGodzilla or Moguera.

Honestly I am so biased in favor of that game that I didn't mind the loading at all. Also I have a later 50001 model PS3 which seems to run a bit better than my old model. I was never a huge Tales fan until Abyss. Symphonia was alright but Abyss and Vesperia are two of my favorite games of all time. I think the free-run option was what Symphonia was missing.

Correct. I remember dying up there too.

RPG update: Uhh... I got nothing. Might start on one of the Atelier games soon, or Tales of Graces.

Why is that thing wearing the tabard of the Cenarion Expedition? Nonetheless, I actually like the design.

Man, it's almost as if Project Eternity is just stealing ideas. I'm already disappointed.

For all that you can joke about it looking like Link or whatever, the bottom three heads are pretty much just D&D's "Genasi". If someone had told me that they were concept art from Neverwinter Nights 2, I'd have believed them.

On to Ys II and after searching everywhere and finally backtracking to a dungeon am at the part where all the monsters come out of the wall. It freaked me out the first time I played it, but I also think I remember the strategy I used to get past it, so using that for the second attempt.

Also a fucked up nose and ears, moss growing on his skin, and flowers growing from his head.

Very naturey. And I thought s/he was female.

Looks like horns, so a combo human-deer-ram-flowerbed?

She is female. I was using male pronouns only in response to the "Link" comment.

As for the antlers bit, I was responding to GhostShark comparing the tree on her jack to this thing from WoW:

Which looks to me more like a set of antlers and a leaf than tree branches. Those are very much horns on her head, not antlers.

My apologies, I was thinking of Guardians of Hyjal, which is a similar tree on a brown backdrop with some green edging mixed in. Then again, there isn't much else you can really do if you're doing a nature theme for a design.

Have any of you played the Hyperdimension Neptunia games? Are they any fun?

I have Graces, Vesperia, and Legendia still sealed on my shelf.

I love the series so much that I try to get other games out of the way first.

That tactic doesn't really work.

Let me know if you start playing it.

I play bad games

I only played some of the first one. It's not good. Imagine an indie studio trying to make an RPG.
