  • Wait is the "super tough dungeon" in SMT4 supposed to be Naraku? Admittedly, the Minotaur fight can take a couple tries, but that's the height of the difficulty?

    Yeah, SMT4 has no difficulty, just humps.
    dacencora
    Haha yeah I kept waiting for it to get more challenging. I like the game a lot, honestly. But Nocturne is much much more challenging.

    I'm fairly sure both peanut butter and jelly eventually freeze your brain and make you retarded. It's not his fault.
    Should I play Bravely Default?
    Thac0
    Thac0
    Only if you played and liked Final Fantasy III-V. If so definitly, it is a straight homage and in many ways improved.
    thanks for reminding me about the Bravely Default OST, posting the best EO track, and defending the objectivity of art

    The title alone is already so evocative.
    What Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest games would you recommend for someone with no previous experience in either.
    Or with JRPGs as whole for that matter.
    Thac0

    For Final Fantasy I tend to recommend either V or Tactics to CRPG fans, since they are the ones with the best gameplay. VI is not a bad call aswell since while it has mediocre gameplay it has excellent characters and story. For a good allrounder however, if I do not want to shill my favourite IV again, Final Fantasy X is pretty damn good. You just need to be able to tolerate Tidus as an MC.

    Don't play X first if you never played a Final Fantasy. That is when the series really declined.

    How much I hate Katakana. Almost feels harder to read when you know English than when you do not, because you assume wrong words to be there.

    WhiteShark
    Yeah it really takes a while to get the hang of how they butcher English to be able to consistently recognize what words they're trying and failing to say.
    You're not allowed to change your rating after an edit. I'm thinking about reporting you to the authorities.

    Since you're apparently so shocked by my post, I have to ask: what 5E CRPGs with that level of verticality, environmental interaction, rule-based freedom of movement, and visual representation of numerical mechanics have you been playing (besides BG3, which I haven't touched yet)? Please give me recommendations!
    Jinn
    Jinn
    And about the verticality: I feel it kind of goes beyond gimmick status for me, simply because I think freedom of movement can add so much more to not only possibilities available in combat, but also a whole new dimension to exploration too. Those are a couple of the most important things in RPGs for me, so an enhancement or evolution of them in a top-down game is a special addition for me.

    Using Jump and Misty Step and Spider Climb to collect hidden chests which then contain +1 shields and the like really is a high point of the game. That was when my opinion shifted from mediocre to good. Shame that all of the other parcour hidden items can be solved by autopathing.
    Jinn
    Jinn
    Yeah, that's the kind of stuff I'm talking about. And I agree that autopathing can take the fun out the more accessible caches. I still try to find my way there one platform or level at a time just because it's more fun.
    In case you missed it while walking your dogs, this is a summary of the New Covenant in the words of Saint Athanasius: "God became man so that man might become god."

    I have seen it, it is definitly interesting. It would make sense that the new Christians, who now carry (more of?) a spark of divinity in the Holy Spirit, be no longer subjected to the same rules as the prior Christians.

    This kind of behavior is only acceptable in blobbers and old RPGs like Daggerfall. There is no excuse for newer games.

    Never thought we would get the best definition for what an rpg is from the Japanese. I guess the debate is over.

    Jo stats würfeln im DSA system ist komplett bescheuert. Heutzutage wärs point buy. Heutzutage werden aber leider kaum noch Spiele in dem Stil mehr gemacht ^^
    Ich mag es aus allen Zeiten zu spielen, das älteste was ich im Moment durch hab is nen Jahrzehnt älter als ich. Ich schau mal ob ich noch eins aus den 70ern dazukrieg.
    Scroo

    Spiele aus den 70ern hab ich tatsächlich noch kein einziges gespielt, ich würde aber tatsächlich auch n Textadventure von damals mal testen (falls es sowas damals schon gab lol) :D Und ja, mein Rekord ist auch irgendein Spiel aus den 80ern und somit bevor meiner Zeit ^^

    I just remembered that I played Ni No Kuni once and I kinda liked it. Oh my god, am I an anime/JRPG now?

    Also the card minigame in the casino makes for a great drinking game IRL. A shame I couldn't get into the sequel.
    Thac0

    I have not touched the sequel yet myself.
    Combat was never good in Ni No Kuni, but I sure as hell prefer janky ATB wannabe Pokemon with problems to whatever pikmin action disaster Ni No Kuni 2 has.
