If you can't slam with the best (aka RPG Thread XVIII), then jam with the rest!

You should probably beat Graces first or something.

You should probably stop playing Left 4 Dead 2 or something.

Party's at level 27 in Etrian Odyssey IV and I am loving the SHIT outta this game!

Is there any quick/easy way to get back to a point in a dungeon after exiting? I use an ariadne thread (usually to go back to town to sell shit cuz inventory is full, not cuz I'm needing a rest) but then have to trudge all the way back down to whatever floor I was in...

What's the point of the pole stones? They warp you to the last used entrance/stair/warp pillar but can't be used from towns (to just teleport back into a dungeon). Why would you use those insteade of an ariadne thread?

My party's currently around Level 36 or so. If previous Etrian Odysseys are any indication, I'm just about at (or close to) the halfway mark.

As far as I know, no, there's no way to get back to a deeper floor in a maze after exiting. The shortcuts make backtracking a bit easier, thankfully.

I guess their advantage is that they're cheaper than Ariadne Threads plus you can get back to a pole and save without having to leave the dungeon. However, they're pretty useless for me, too; I also tend to stick with Ariadne Threads.

Managed to finish FFXIII-2. I might've been underleved or something but that last boss took FOREVER. Like at least an hour. Probably moving onto X-Com: Enemy Unknown next.

maaaaaaaaan let me tell u guys about Breath of Fire Dragon Q.

I wanna like this game, I really do, but what ruins it for me is Save Points of all things...

they are way too far in between, and even when you do find one you can only save if you have a Save Token item.

which means u cant play conservatively, u really needa be very firm in what you're doing and save only when necessary, only after you've been sitting at the game for over an hour once the next save point appears.

game is supposed to be like 30 hours, and I'm all for playing a 30 hour game, but it needs to be 30 hours on my own terms. I'm old now, I cant play as much as I want, and if I have 45 minutes to spare an evening I'll be extremely reluctant to spend it on this game.

I put FF7 on hold and finally started Gravity Rush. Man this game is great. I think I'm a 1/3 through the story. Now I'm just going around fixing the town and doing challenges so I can get enough gems to level up.

I'm done with Ni No Kuni. Made it to the final form of the final boss of the final bosses, got him down to a sliver of health, but then he killed me and I rage quit with an epic string of profanity. I'm gonna just Youtube the ending and move on. Its a fun game, kinda drags at the end, but I'm in the mood for something else. Not sure what yet, though.

Speaking of long-overdue Squeenix games, what's everyone's thoughts about the rumor that Final Fantasy Versus XIII is going to be Final Fantasy XV? Here's the basis for said rumors (from this week's The X Button):
 

The best evidence for Versus becoming Final Fantasy XIII may come from fashions and perfumes. Roen, a Japanese clothing company, was originally tapped for design work on Versus back in 2008, and the firm's online bio mentioned them working on Final Fantasy XV earlier this year. In a turn less likely to be coincidence, there's a new eau-de-toilette named after Noctis, the hero of Final Fantasy Versus XIII. As game-industry legend Nick Des Barres observed on Twitter, other character-based Final Fantasy scents are branded with specific game titles, but the Noctis one is simply called “Final Fantasy” with no Versus in sight.


It's an interesting theory, but they'd have to buff up those graphics some. I mean, they're seven years old now...

I really never expected Verses XIII to be released anyway. I always thought they would shift it to Vita and rename it The World Ends With You Too or something lamer.

I started White Knight Chronicles II. Beat the first game and thought it was ok.

Made it to the World of Ruin in Final Fantasy 6. This is getting to be a chore fighting these monsters with an underdeveloped Celes, but I guess now is the best time to Esper her up.

It didn't look good 7 years ago, either. Let's be honest. They scrapped it and may have reused some assets for FF15, but altogether, Versus is no more. We won't see that game again, or it's going to look completely different next time we do.

for some reason i started playing valkyria chronicles 3. i've had it for years but only picked it up now.

it's funny because my confidence in japanese went up when it comes to general use, but when i play this game i'm not sure i understand it at all.

 

pretty cool how you can switch your characters classes though. haven't experimented with it yet because you still have to level up the classes themselves by accomplishing objectives... but i expect it to be really broken later on.

I'm about to start episode 9 on Gravity Rush. I'm trying to leveling Kat's abilities as much as I can but I hate that I have to collect gems to level her up. The challenges are fun but they keep kicking my ass. I Silvered each challenge but I'd mess up when I go for the Gold.

Gravity Rush is an RPG? Actual question here-- I really don't know much of anything about that game, but I got the impression it was more of an action/adventure title.

I wouldn't consider it an RPG at all. Definitely more action/adventure.

 

Question for people who have beaten FFXII. I just got to Phon Coast. Any insight to how far along I am story-wise?

Terrible design. Just bad. But I will still play it because I played the other two and I'd feel bad not playing this one. 

 

Along with FF6, I started playing YS: Origins. I have no idea what is going on, but I dig the game so far.

But it is called "Lightning Returns" this time... might be weird if she wasn't on the cover.

Didn't stop her from not being on the cover of the second game.

 

Should have put Snow front & centered on this one.
