You know you want to.



It's out so soon. I can't wait!

Reviews are pretty good aren't they? So many games in September!

Yeah. Apparently the story is great (yay) and the gameplay is a bit pants (boo). But I'm a massive fan of janky Japanese action games, so I reckon I'll love everything about it!

Well at least the story is good. Is that not the most important thing? Would rather have it that way around in this context...

"I have reserves of it, built up, weeks and weeks of... juice" Those outtakes never fail to make me laugh.

Cannot see.

on 19 August 2015

You can't see either link?

on 19 August 2015

Oh, now the second one works for me, excellent!

Well, what a fine pick up young man. Have you played Xillia 1? If so, prepare for a great experience. Does to Xillia what XIII-2 did to XIII. In both cases, I thought the sequels were a vast improvement over the originals and I genuinely enjoyed them.

on 19 August 2015

Excellent and you know I have! Came all the way from Hannover!

Might be Day 1 and sealed but I'll try it out soon for sure.

on 19 August 2015

WTF are you smoking Kresnik. XIII is miles better than the water-down XIII-2 version.

Xillia 1 is awesome tho.

on 20 August 2015

Xillia is awesome but it feels unfinished...

on 20 August 2015

Xillia 1 was okay. I was expecting a lot better, to be honest. Story had too many holes that required you to play through the other half, and in general it just felt a bit... flat. I liked that they were going with slightly older themes than the "we'll be friends forever" vibe from Graces, but generally I found the game dragged a bit at times.

Xillia 2 improves on that in every way. It's shorter; more focused; combat is tweaked for better (although Ludger is massively OP) and the story is miles better. The problem is the money grinding you have to do, which I wasn't a fan of.

Regarding XIII and XIII-2, I just can't agree with that at all. XIII was a massively disappointing game that I failed to have much fun with. It takes too long to give you any control and when you do it's in the penultimate chapter. Story is serviceable and combat is okay but otherwise I can't give it much praise. XIII-2 improves pretty much every aspect, and apart from the horrible ending, I can't really fault it as a JRPG. I've completed it twice already, I enjoyed it that much.

< Wright posted something on Kresnik's wall:

Just a heads-up: the game is extremely flawed. It has tons of strange design decisions that can put off a lot of players (like your pawns being unable to shut up, although I found amusing the amount of "junk commentary" they're bound to say, like, for example, when you get soaked in water), mixed with some strange monster-hunter Elder Scrolls gameplay-ish done the japanese way. The story is extremely cliché up until the final hours (which takes a daring and extraordinary turn), and there are some difficult spikes that should have been tested a bit more (game can be relentless at times, more on the unfair than on the challenge side). Also, if you didn't get the Dark Arisen version (which brings the expansion plus some other things), then be prepared to do some massive backtracking through the world (expansion included more than one single teleport stone, which is nice). Also, erratic NPC behaviour at times, some minor glitches here and there, and some annoying navigational menus, especially when your character is crowded with things.



Why am I telling you this, though? Because I love the game, a lot. It's unique. It is flawed, but a flawed gem is still a gem nonetheless.

It has an awesome character creator that, while limited at times, allows you to modify several properties of your character, like height or weight, and those influenciate your character in-game (an obese character has less stamina than a slim one, but can carry much more items. Likewise, a large character might reach places a small one can't, but the later is much more agile). The gameplay is addictive, fun and gratifying. There are some interesting sidequests, and some side bosses that tune up the challenge. And the story has a superb ending. Plus, the OST kicks ass. And the "pimpin'" mechanic with the pawns is interesting, as you can share your creations with other players that will play with them while you reap the benefits, and you also get to play with other people's pawns.

I'll be getting Dark Arisen, yeah, no reason not to if I'm just starting it.

Thanks for the write-up. I can live with all of those flaws, apart from possibly the difficulty spikes one - that's caused me to quit more than my fair share of games at times.

Hey Krezzy, check this out:

Your feedback is always greatly appreciated ;)

on 13 August 2015

I will get round to reading it at some point, sorry :P

on 13 August 2015

It is cool. Nice to know I put a load of time into it on a game you enjoy for you to TLDR it.

(I kid ofcourse)

on 13 August 2015

That was joking tinged with real feelings, imo :P

Sorry, I haven't had as much time as I'd like for VGC and stuff lately. I will get around to it, I swear.

on 13 August 2015

I have no doubt you will :)

on 13 August 2015

One day...

on 16 August 2015

So demanding these days. I go away for 3 days and you expect me to spend all evening reading posts on VGC the second I'm back!?

on 16 August 2015

Well that's because I'm leaving now as well you see so, yeah. VGC is more important than irl, we both know this!

And yes, September is going to be very expensive, even if I don't somehow try to get Ar Nosurge!  I deviated from my original plan purely because these were all from actualy physical stores and I'd rather support Vita that way as opposed to online.
