Hey, this was what I was referring to a while ago in my analysis of Nintendo's next portable.

It appears that graphene is very promising for battery life in the near future. I've known it for 2 years now but it looks like Samsung is getting ready to rev it up. And we know that that means it's going to be big.

Is there more than one save file in Etrian Odyssey Untold? Or is it always either story or classic mode?

The latter. Which is really stupid, of course.

Boo! I also know from the demo that QR codes will be back. Another downer.

Do grimoire stones replace subclasses?

2 days ago

Yes, albeit with an asterisk: there's not only no restrictions on what skills you can put on a grimoire, they also can contain monster skills. I'd be happier with the flexibility, if the whole system wasn't incredibly dependent on luck

2 days ago

With a bit of patience though, grimoires can break the game fairly easily

2 days ago

Almost all skills in the skill trees can take up 10 points. I miss the lower amounts of EO4, they made it easier to create balanced characters.

Also not fond of the story. Interruptions like all the damn time. Question about difficulty: Is normal the new casual and expert the new normal? I suppose expert is the actual standard difficulty for EO.

2 days ago

More or less, with a caveat: on Expert, enemies do 2/3 more damage and take 1/3 less. In the early run it's not a big difference, but by the fourth stratum the difference is pretty obvious, and your weaker party members get one-shotted fairly easily if not buffed.

2 days ago

I played the demo on normal and it was really easy. But that's just the first stratum as you say (demo ends at the first door of BF3).

But one-shotted you say? That sounds tough. With my most of the time terrible skill builds I have to give this a second thought. Although there's only a two level penalty for resetting skill points and probaby a ton of QR quests. Playing EO4 with QR quests actually forced me to hold back on killing FOEs, otherwise I would have reached level 70 before unlocking the dragons.

2 days ago

Definitely leave it on Expert: it takes quite a while before the going gets especially rough, and the one-shotting is mostly at the hands of bosses and FOEs until the sixth stratum, when they start getting creative at screwing you over. But then you remember that stratum from the first game: it's different in kind, but not in type.

Besides, you can always change between difficulties at any time without penalty. Great for grinding a new party, although I didn't figure that out until my third go around >_<. Speaking of, easy mode is insultingly easy: a level 30 party can do just fine all through the first five stratums, and several floors on the sixth. They REALLY want folks to get through the Story Mode, I guess...

2 days ago

Although on that note, the story mode is mostly intrusive in the beginning and the end: the middle is largely story-free, save for some "guess we gotta do this now!" stuff.

2 days ago

Okay, if it's FOEs and bosses that do the real damage, then I'll be playing on expert for sure. And yes, the game tells you that you can change the difficulty in the options after you've started.

Hey, I apologize for the late reply. Let me know how I can make it up.

Don't sweat it dude. Your avatar more than makes up for it. :-P

Your approval of my avy had me genuinely smiling :)
In any case, do let me know, though.

Uh-oh, you got reported. Be grateful for your mod protection.

I'm all paid up for a reason. Ain't no thing like an insurance policy!

You have no idea how much it took me to stop ConeGamer from coming after you. I can only hold him off your trail for so long... run!

What say you about this Super Smash Bros. fiasco?

I've got to say, I go to dinner and then come back to this huge mess of a thing... only Nintendo.

Not a fan of the 3DS version coming out first?

on 08 April 2014

I personally don't mind it. At first I was confused as to why they would do something so seemingly stupid, then I noticed everyone was complain because now they "have to buy the 3DS version too." Which I'm willing to bet was their reasoning for this.

But the question was directed at you. What do you think about it?

on 08 April 2014

I don't mind it at all. On the contrary, it suits my purposes to stagger the two; I have more time to enjoy one before switching to the other, the one released sooner is for the system I currently own, and I have to wait way less than I was expecting to.

I also don't think it's a bad business decision. Releasing them simultaneously would likely mean fewer sales for both of them, as few of us are so irresponsible with our time and money as to blow $100 on two games which are extremely similar and will each consume hundreds of hours of playtime.

And if you're going to stagger them, having the Wii U version release in the holidays gives it (and the Wii U) more oomph: Summer tends to be a relatively weak time to release a game, while the holidays are a big boost for releases. I also have to imagine that the Wii U version probably isn't done yet, as I don't see them sitting on it for so many months. For that reason, holding off on the 3DS version until after the Wii U version strikes me as equally wasteful, especially since the 3DS is doing good-not-greeat

Basically, it suits me personally, and it's probably better strategically to boot.

on 08 April 2014

So we agree.

I must say, my few years of being on VGC has really opened my eyes to how much people overreact to things. It's quite funny reading through the posts.

Also, your dates battle is quite hilarious. I mean, 2014 does indeed mean 2014.

on 08 April 2014

I'm increasingly noticing that his method of "persuasion" consists exclusively of asserting something as an indisputable "fact" and then reporting folks when they point out that it either isn't or that the fact is largely irrelevant to the broader point. Fun times though!

on 08 April 2014

And yes, the internet is full of whiners, and we're no exception!

I didn't contact Nintendo though, I just sent it into the shop where I bought it from(it's a big chain of stores here in Belgium).  *whew* Bullet dodged!...
