Yo! You beat SMT 4, I have a question since I got lost in the game

Ask away lol.

on 21 May 2015

Alright, so recently I wanted to get back into SMT IV and I realized I had forgotten like half the story since last time I played XD anyway, I'm at the part where the demon horse things want Eueno's head or whatever. Where is that dude so I can get past the horses? :-P

on 21 May 2015

He's in a park... I can't remember what it's called, but you'll know who he is because he's made of sewed, and the team is grossed out by how bad his head smells when you beat him.

on 21 May 2015

Oh the area with the fountain and stuff? Alright, I'll definitely get to him today then. Thank you!

on 21 May 2015

Yeah! Just walk to the area by the water and a cutscene triggers.

on 21 May 2015

KK, thank you very much

on 21 May 2015

TwT Hey, I played the game too... You could have asked me... Granted I finished the game a year or 2 ago, haha....

Heya Spemanig, I just finished Earthbound! I really enjoyed it and it's one of the best games I've played yet. : ) What did you think of it? Also, I'm starting Mother 3 already. Gotta get ready for Mother 4 ; )

I'm so excited for Mother 4! I'll refrain from spoiling my feeling on Mother 3 until after you've played that lol.

To be pithy, I thought Earthbound was extremely flawed, but one of the most magical gaming experiences I've ever had. I think a lot of unrecognized credit goes out to the English localization team, because they honestly made the game what it is. The final boss is unforgettable and collecting all the pieces of the melody feels like something out of a fairy tale. The hole world is uncanny and creepy and not quite right and is feels like you are stuck in the dreams and nightmares of a child, which is both scary, and beautiful. The music just adds to that atmosphere, and it is all put together so well.

The grinding is aggravating, and early on the limited access to items that revive your PSI is aggravating. The fact that the plot is loose and that there are no real characters with emotion and development also kind of stinks in a game like this, but in retrospect, maybe that decision was for the best.

Overall great game. Not a masterpiece, but great.

on 17 May 2015

Yeah, I found a lot of things in Earthbound to be great as well as interesting, such as enemies taking turns to be idle, doing their own odd things. I really liked the health countdown mechanic as you could recover health before collapsing in battle, or just beat the enemy before you fall. And overall it was just a really funny experience and I was laughing most of the time I played it.

But this game can be outright brutal and cheap. I'd either get swarmed at times, the flash attack taking out my characters randomly, or all my characters getting daimondized... The beginning was especially grueling losing so many times. At times, the game is poor at giving the player direction as to where to go next... I had to use to pay the hint guy to get a clue. And I found Poo's entrance to be the most poor and odd introduction to the team. He sort of abruptly shows up... That was handled rather poorly....

And yet, I can look past that. The rest of the game was so great. : ) Oh, can I also say that part in Ness's sub conscience was horribly aggregating. I died a couple of times, and redoing it was terrible....

on 17 May 2015

One of my favorite parts of the game was actually Poo's meditation lol

on 17 May 2015

Well, the meditation was cool, but I thought it was odd how you need magic cake to meet him, and then from Ness`s perspective Poo just appears out of nowhere and basically says he`s here to serve him. I don`t know why, but it bothered me a bit when this happened.

on 17 May 2015

Like I said, not a fan of the plot. I was just talking about the mechanics behind that part. It was pretty fucked up, if you think about it.

on 17 May 2015

Oh, I see. Gotcha. Yeah, that was very messed up indeed, as are other parts of the game possibly. x ) But yeah, I`ll let you know when I get through Mother 3 : )

on 17 May 2015

Please do!

on 17 May 2015

Just adding my two cents here but I never needed to grind in Earthbound. It's a simple game, if you never run away from battles you will never need to grind for anything!

The final boss was easy and there wasn't any overly complicated boss in the game. There is ONE boss that is very difficult but there is an item that you can use to make the fight a breeze so we can count that one out.

The one thing I would criticize about the game is that the battle system was too simple. There are only a couple of useful PSI spells to use and there is one character who uses items to attack, it sounded like a cheap way to introduce a new "mechanic" without introducing nothing new.

on 21 May 2015

I never ran from battles, and I was definitely under leveled. The final boss was scripted, which I assume is why I beat it my first try, though I definitely had trouble with many bosses because I was so under leveled. I never grinder either, but it was more out of spite than anything.

on 21 May 2015

Though, I actually thought it was a really cool mechanic how all the characters are completely different, especially the item user.

on 21 May 2015

That's strange... maybe I just did too many battles in my playthroughs.I guess it's different for everyone. Remeber there is a part in the game where you recieve a huge boost in EXP and raise several levels, maybe you where unlucky and recieved a minimal boost. (I heard it can greatly vary)

Paula,Ness and Poo play more or less in the same way... they all use PSI energy. Jeff just uses consumable items which is nothing new. It's like the throwable items in the Final Fantasy games, only it's specific to one character.

on 21 May 2015

By that part, the game is practically over, though.

I don't think they played the same at all. Ness was much better with his main attack while Paula was the PSI attacker. They all had different psi moves too.

on 21 May 2015

Oddly, I didn't really grind either and I went thru the game fine, except for near the end with Ness alone. Also, I thought the battle system was pretty good. Each character felt quite unique, and how I used each character was different, except for Poo... : x

on 21 May 2015

Yeah lol Poo was pretty fodder. I used Ness for physical attacks and barriers/support, Paula for PSI attacks as my main powerhouse, Todd for items, and Poo for whatever lol. He was a wildcard.

on 21 May 2015

actually, I kinda used Poo as a mix of the 2... he had some good attack as well as defense moves. I guess that`s what he kinda was..?

on 21 May 2015

Well yeah Ness Paula and Poo had different PSI capabilites but they where all "mages".

Poo was useless if we are being honest. There was a certain PSI energy he had that was useful but I forgot it's name! But that's the only good thing he had, also he could only equip a certain type of armor... what kind of bullshit is that!?!

on 21 May 2015

It was Starstorm. He definitely wasn't useless, though. He was just a wild card. He was good for exploiting weaknesses since he could double up with Paula to maximize "super effective" hits. Them being "mages" is kind of a misleading, because PSI isn't really comparable to magic in other RPGs from a mechanic POV.

Ness was much more of a medic than anything else, and his physical attacks hit harder than his PSI most of the time as non of hit moves could hit an opponent's weakness. Paula was the real attacker, with all of her attacks able to "super effectively" hit something. She was also the only one who could use PSI shields, buffs, and debuffs.

Poo only needed one suit of armor. He was a late game ally, and there was no need to decorate him with all these different sets. The only annoying thing was getting his sword.

on 22 May 2015

Oddly for me, both Ness and Paula felt like strong hitters in different aspects. Ness was my physical hitter, while Paula was my `magic` hitter, while both were good support as well.

Interestingly, I got Poo`s sword without even knowing the requirement to get it. I guess I got lucky...

on 22 May 2015

Like 1/162ish lucky lmao. You get it as a random drop from one of the dinosaurs.

Nice sig!

I'm glad someone finally noticed! My biggest pet peeve on this site having my well though out arguments rebuttaled with "Well, don't you know that's your opinion?"

on 23 April 2015

Works well, just like your previous one. Some people around here need a reminder every once and a while.
