Hey don't ever play a Drakengard game.

When I opened my Nier case last night, there was no disc. Now I'm wondering if I never got a disc (I bought it from game stop 6+ months ago), or I took it out once, and left it somewhere else...

 

I played Drakengard 2 on the :ps2: only for a few hours though.

 

Maybe I'll start Dragon's Dogma after I finish Brothers.

I don't see anything fun in them. Then again I'm staring at the ceiling for every battle encounter, so maybe I'm missing something.

I like RPGs where dungeon strategy is important (how and when to conserve MP, multiple trips to clear, etc.) so it's nice in FF1. There's also that feeling when you find a cool item (doubly so if it has a helpful active, which is important in FF1 because of inventory space) or getting a cool spell like FAST, and it has basic/general stat progression that you can follow along with.

Heck, even grinding is easy in FF1 with hallways that spawn giants on every step, or the Eye defending the Floater.

 

The Ice Cave... oh man. Now that's a difficult dungeon, which really doesn't have a true boss unless you want to count the Eye...

So, Etrian Odyssey? =P~

I played the first one and got pretty far, then I got distracted by something. Maybe League of Legends.

 

Strangely, after the Dragon Quest series, the only other game that comes to mind with that style is Might and Magic VI. Kind of. You can still take naps in the dungeon.

Play Nier because it is a great game. Ending B is my favorite but ending C and D are pretty epic. New Game+'s go quick since it puts you in the middle of the game, not start all over.

 

I'm not sure how Drakengard 3 connects to Nier, because the world of Nier is based off the ending/outcome D or E of Drakengard 2, and Drakengard 3 is a prequel to Drakengard 1.

Nier's definitely on my list to knock out this yier. I'm looking forward to it.

Really? I thought ending B was too similar to A and one of them should have been cut so C and D could have been shunted to the second playthrough instead of being stuck on the third because even though you're starting in the middle the second two times, three runs of a game is a lot.

I just got the Bravely Default CE! :whee: Amazon shipped it in a bubble mailer, but amazingly enough, there's no major damage to the thing! Might start it up this weekend.

 

Oh, and Persona 4 is going well. I was dying a bit yesterday, though; it certainly has that MegaTen-style difficulty.

Is there any point to cooking in Vesperia? I find myself rarely cooking even though I have quite a bit of recipes. The only time I really cook is before a boss fight comes up. Because yeah, I gamefaqs the boss fights to get those secret missions, wanna fight about it?

Are there any console differences I should be aware of as far as Nier goes? Thought I remembered being told to go PS3, but I might just be making shit up.

Only reason I ever cooked was for the titles.

I don't believe there are any major differences between the two unless you are getting a Japanese import. I heard the PS3 version can have more frame-rate drops when alot is happening on-screen, but the game isn't real strong graphically anyway, so I don't think its very important.

I was expecting a DQ8 remake sometime in the future...

 

But I never imagined the platform that it would be on.

You shouldn't be too surprised. More and more games (classic and new) are being made exclusively for phones and tables. However, I would love an HD version on consoles and PC.

Massive spoilers to Nier behind spoiler tags, do not click!

 

I could be remembering wrong,

Though they were epic endings.

Anyway, one of the best reasons to play through besides new endings is hard to explain without spoiling the game. Basically, you get new story in a 2nd+ playthrough.

Fuck you Amazon for still not shipping my Bravely Default (who's title this whole time I have had in my head as Bravery Default, forcing some sort of Engrish twist on it...).

Yeah, the extra stuff you get in the second playthrough is fucking amazing. I just wish you didn't need an arbitrary third playthrough that doesn't really contain anything new in it to unlock the last two endings. Endings A and B are certainly good and the game stands up as fantastic on its own, but ending D is god damn "Kobayashi mug dropping"-tier. I'm not sure I can think of any game that ends as well as NieR's ending D.

I'm really enjoying Bravely Default. Thank God for the demo, I probably would have died a lot if I didn't know what I was doing. I just finished the first dungeon and got the first 3 jobs. I'm going to do a bit of grinding before going to the next dungeon.

Bravely Default is real good!! how do I add friends? lol

 

I clicked on the street pass or internet or whatever thing out of random and the game gave me 5 "guests" so my town population is 25 instead of 20!

I've been playing this game all day. So far I'm on the 2nd chapter with a level 26 party. I'm going to do a bit of grinding before the next boss.

You will have to register friends on your system. There is a Google doc on the Bravely Default tread in the deals section with a list of friend codes. To add guests, go to any traveler(dude in red coat), click save, and update data. This will add villagers and enemies to your town. You can do this daily. Click add friends to add the friends you've registered in your system.

Glad to see the love for BD, I can't put it down myself. I wish people would update their 'summon friend' attack instead of just leaving it as the default (pun) attack. Granted I don't need them, even on hard, but I like to use them in random battles and I like to see the effort people. I really don't feel like I'm grinding in this game, I mean its actually fun to farm job points just to see what ability is next. Turn off exp gain, encounter up and go to town.

Man, I dunno. I adored P4G, but Bravely is shaping up to be a classic for me. It's got pretty much everything I love about RPGs going for it. Obviously too early to tell, but I'm hooked.
