    I've played like 3 hours so far, so I can't really say. There are conditions you can toggle on or off to make fights harder or to disable the use of certain items and a few others, so if it gets too easy I'll probably try those out a bit. Also there's post-game which I'm guessing ramps up the difficulty.

    No, it is not at all easy with the Draconian Quest "Strong Monsters" in use. It's one of the most rewarding and challenging JRPGs ever released. Where did you get the impression that it was super easy?

    I don’t know about the i. Charter has some little quirks like that, which give it personality. You can see it there:

    It is also perfectly possible that you are right: MacType isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution and requires some tweaking, if only for choosing between the various profiles. That said, if it is really wrong, don’t ruin it for me because then I will bug me all the time. :D

    I would recommend getting your news of JRPGs almost exclusively from these fine Codexian forums.

    If not using the Draconian Quest, the game is quite easy. But that is the same for all JRPG, so can't blame this game for this. Now, with Draconian Quest(which is the right way to play this game) things gets truly better.

    Ah ok I remember now. Those were goblins in that game.

    I knew it looked familiar. Dragon Knight Saga is a favorite of mine.

    Death Rally, the first game from Remedy, I remember playing the shareware version back then, and it's still fun for a few hours:

    In between races you can improve the engine, tires and armor of the car, and buy a few bonuses, like sabotaging an opponent's car.

    That's what you get for shooting up my ride :cool:

    The goal of the game is to gain points in each race, in order to become first on the rankings, and then challenging the final boss, who cheats by using a more powerful car than anything you can get :argh:

    Koudelka, 1999 JRPG with a horror setting. Things I like:
    1. The voice acting is really nice.
    2. Fixed camera angles, like in Resident Evil.
    3. The writing so far is interesting and non-animu. It would appear "dark" or "edgy" is apparently the one setting where JRPGs throw their animu tropes out of the window, a big positive.
    4. You can distribute points upon leveling up.
    5. Equipment appears to make a big difference.
    6. Koudelka (main character, the chick) is really hot.
    7. The game is really nicely animated during conversations. For instance, if a character gives something to the player, you will actually see the character giving it to the player (as opposed to a random "here, have this" -> "Potion received").
    Things I don't like:
    1. Battles are slow.
    2. The battle music gets repetitive. No "victory fanfare" upon winning.
    3. You don't even get to see your EXP gain upon winning. This is basic game design: you show EXP gains so that the player feels good, even if it is ultimately pointless.
    4. No tank controls. I got too used to them with Resident Evil.
    5. Fade out/fade in transitions as opposed to seamless transitions from Resident Evil when going from one background to another in the same scene.
    6. The map interface is interesting in presentation but it is a mess which makes it hard to understand where you are standing at.
    7. Not enough panty shots of Koudelka.
    8. Though cinematic in nature it doesn't make use of camera angles at all during conversations.

    One of my favorite games from childhood. I never played the full version until it became abandonware, though.

    Last time I took Death Rally for a spin I was a bit disappointed in how much worse the rubberbanding was than I remembered.

    Codex 2012
    Won as Jews against Romans in an online match

    [​IMG]

    Was a hard fought victory. We were neck and neck until about 40% when I started to pull ahead.

    [​IMG]

    The front of the battle shifted about 90 degrees throughout the course of the match, since my Jews managed to punch through the center of the Roman line, but my right flank fell apart as it was mostly Rebel Spearmen who are easily outmatched by the Roman troops. Luckily I had kept some Jew fanatics in reserve so I sent them to reinforce that flank, and their superior morale meant they could keep 2 or even 3 roman units at bay for quite a while, as the bulk of my forces continued to tear up his middle. I put almost all of my archers on my left flank, on a hill, and that successfully kept most of his cavalry at bay so I never had to worry about an attack from the rear.
