Got my Cris Tales CE in the mail today. A bit underwhelming but I wanted to support the developers. Be warned the outer box wasn't sealed and is extremely flimsy and prone to damages and creasing. At least it was shipped in a well protected and sturdy shipping box.


Thanks for the insight. I was excited about this game and ordered it as well, even if it wasn't the greatest looking, so I'll keep an eye out.

Really? I think the first boss is one the easiest boss with all the visual cues to parry. Aside from Sephiroth 1-hit KO at the last battle, Roche (very subtle cues to parry, the one boss I could not parry a single hit) and the Arsenal (straight up endurance fight, if you don't manage MP right for Shell and Protect, you're done!) should be some of the hardest bosses on Hard Mode.

Gotterdammerung makes most bosses easier, so get that before running Hard mode.

Isn't it more difficult to get the Gotterdammerung than beating the entire game on hard? Haven't beat the game on hard or got the Gotterdammerung, but so far the hardest thing for me is to beat the pull up challenge.

Anyone know if nba 2k21 $100 edition ever went down in price on Black Friday?

Physically, unsure. Digitally yes, several times.

FFVII Remake is a good game though it took a very long time before the story got interesting. A lot of fan service in the game that degraded the game imo but towards the end the game picked up. Thankfully the battle system is fantastic and kept me going.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed the game not being interesting.  I got to a village where you had to pick some flowers and got bored with it.  I never played the original and the remake didn't win me over in the hours I put into it.  I may continue it later, but have to find time to be motivated enough to start it again.

Those are the boring side missions. I think they were intended as a game design that helps you explore and learn the new area.

I'm pretty sure it was main story stuff. With Aerith and going to her house?

I was able to beat the pull up challenge after like 10 tries but there were tons of things in normal that I could not do like beating the boss to get the Gotterdammerung, could not beat Leviathan and obviously didn't even try Bahamut. Clearly not like the old days when you could just grind for an hour and basically be overpowered... LOL

Oh yeah that was but the flower collecting was really short and was contained to one section.

I think with the Remake you really have to exploit the enemies weakness or utilize your materias setup well, so definitely not like the original.

I meant the game in general bored me, not the flower picking specifically. That's just the last thing I remember doing.

The price for the steelbook version on amazon.de is high either way.  ebay prices start at half that cost.

Which is understandable and that's why there are hundred different types of games made each year.

Oh for sure! I've enjoyed plenty of games that have plenty of people didn't like.  Sony got my money once and I gave it a try.

That's how I felt with the flower section too. It looked nice but I feel like it could have been a cutscene instead of a full gameplay segment. It's great fan service but for those of us that didn't play the original, it just felt unneeded to progress the story in a meaningful way.

 

I did beat the game and it does get much better towards the end though still a bit stiff at some sections. I'd say go ahead and finish it.

Also got my Cris Tales CE in the mail. Was wrapped in bubble wrap so no damage to the box, but I could def see some ppls getting dinged up in transit.

Most of the box is taken up by the plushie, with the extras securely stored underneath a flap inside. The game itself has it's own little pocket in the bottom, actually like how they packaged it.

$48 for the steelbook or $87 for the steelbook and game standard edition. Ouch.

That is a nice looking steelbook though!

I am working on this platinum right now, I just need hardened veteran and I'll be done.

 

Getting the gotterdammerung requires some maxed materia that you'll want for hard mode anyways (HP/MP up, elemental, etc), so getting ready for that VR battle will save you time later, assuming you haven't maxed out all the ones you need.

 

I'm in chapter 17 about to face swordipede so maybe I haven't reached the toughest bosses yet, but this accessory has definitely helped me a lot. Lots of encounters have been shortened by Cloud starting with an Ascension. I gave it to Tifa for the fight against those dogs that jump out of the cages (this encounter gave me hell even on normal) and the fight was over in seconds. There is a reason people recommend you get it before starting your hard playthrough.

The house boss was hard but once you get level capped and equip the max materia etc the battle system really shines. The intergrade episode is awesome because of the difficulty of the end game hard fights imho. They’re not so hard that you need to be a great player but you do need to understand the system and equip correctly. My only complaints with remake are the walking sim time wasting tactics and the shortage of bosses. They made it crawl along to lengthen the game when more boss content would have added replayability- especially in the battle sim etc.

I agree with this, but I'm playing base game/not intergrade version. Hard mode gives the game teeth and its honestly a lot more enjoyable for it. Strategy is more important whereas on normal punisher Cloud pretty much shredded everything. 

 

Hell house on hard was pretty nasty, especially what they threw in at the end there.

I platinumed this when it first came out. There were some strats back then that you could use to cheese most of the arena bosses, there are probably even better ones now, just look up some youtube videos. Hard mode is pretty difficult at first if you're used to grinding since everything assumes you're at max level.

I completely forgot about those parts... fully agreed, those parts were annoying AF. 

 

The flower picking part was def meant to be fan service. Back in the day, it was a sight to see Aerith's house for the first time after seeing the green/gray industrial sights of Shinra and the gloomy slums of Midgar.

For the Amazon.jp site, it has a built in language selector.  Hit the three dashes and scroll to the bottom.  Tap the third to last option with a globe icon next to it.  That brings you to the language selector.  The second option is English.

I just got a shipping email with tracking number from shopto.  I don't remember them being this slow.

I also got an email from the Bandai store about Scarlet Nexus and they are going to resend the order.  I hope I still get a steelbook from it.
