    Oh, what do you think of it?

    on 20 August 2014

    I got up to Ending B with it and watched the two other endings on Youtube.

    I liked it but thought it was overrated character and story-wise. The entire story is just a big collect-a-thon, with not a whole lot of character development or scenes that flesh out the background. There's more on NG+ with Kaine's backstory, and a few Shade stories, but more would've been nice. Things also seemed to be happening too fast sometimes; like Emil's relationship with the cast. We barely know this character and he acts like he's been us his whole life. Same thing with Nier and his relationship with Kaine by the Aerie. There wasn't enough time to flesh anything out, but again the game acts like they've known each other for a long time.

    Speaking of Nier and Emil - they're really ho hum. Emil has a very sparse backstory and he's not that great of a character anyway. Nier is just very simple. I suppose that works in contrast to the slightly more complex stories with Shades, but he's still not a strong character. Kaine is the best character by default, plus she actually gets a backstory even if it's just through text.

    The villains were lame. The Shadowlord is like a non-character. He's just a copy of Nier, and just as simple, but now an antagonist. Devola and Popola are also very simple, but make no sense. There's not much reason for them to fight the main cast. I also thought it was weird how Popola starts whining and freaking out that the party kills Devola. Well, why did you instigate a fight with us in the first place? WTF lol.

    The best parts of the story are the little Shade and his robot and the wolves.

    Other than that, the soundtrack is good. Didn't think it was *great*, but I liked about all the tracks. My favorite track was probably Gods Bound by Rules. The boss in the Barren Temple was the best one too.

    The gameplay was fine. The combat isn't exceptional but I didn't have much of a problem with it. The game had too much backtracking though (at least Nier runs fast) and needed a better fast travel method than just the boats. Also the sidequests were bad...I only did 65% of them. The game would've been better if there were more meaningful sidequests, possibly elaborating on more Shade stories and stuff that happened in the past which is lightly touched upon in the main story.

    I think I'm gonna post this on GAF.

    Wait I forgot Weiss who was also good.

    How do you feel about Codename: S.T.E.A.M.? It seems right up your alley.

    Seems interesting. I don't think the art style is great but the gameplay should be good if it's an Intelligent Systems take on a Valkyria Chronicles style battle system. I'll wait for impressions.

    It's a month late, but how are you finding it/how did you find it?

    on 26 June 2014

    I wrapped it up not too long ago. I'd give it an 8/10. I didn't think it was really remarkable, yet at the same time I was never really bored by it. It's weird.

    On the battle system: I have some mixed thoughts. In some battles I'd say the battle system is very good, yet for most fights I was able to just use Thundaga and auto-battle and win. But for some reason I wasn't too bothered by it. Before I bought the game I played the demo and didn't think it was too exciting. Overall I don't think I "understood" the battle system till a certain boss battle in Yaschas Massif. The point of the battle system is to be quick on your feet with what paradigm you want for offense, defense, healing purposes, buffs, debuffs while also trying to raise the stagger battle as fast as possible or when you can. It can be a race sometimes basically. I don't think there's even a comparison I can make with another battle system. In tougher fights I'd say it was pretty good, but most fights are on the easy side.

    On the story/characters: The story is alright. There was a bit too much focus on solving the paradoxes which doesn't make too interesting of a story IMO. The major characters are also weren't developed that well, but they're not annoying.

    On the soundtrack: A couple good tracks. I didn't mind the screamo tracks lol. Caius' theme might be the best one. I'd probably say the soundtrack is decent-good.

    Other stuff:

    In Academia 400 the enemy spawn rate is too high. I don't know why they decided to make it like that. I'm also not too fond of the random encounter system they put in place.

    The action cutscenes were good.

    Finally I thought the graphics were pretty nice

    on 26 June 2014

    Also I plan to get Lightning Returns when it's cheaper.

    on 26 June 2014

    Yeah, I'm waiting for Lightning Returns to get cheaper too.

    I really enjoyed the soundtrack to XIII-2. This piece in particular:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K3aB92PW9Qw

    And the final boss theme. Plus yeah, Caius' theme was really fitting and I enjoyed that.

    Battle system was ehh. Same as XIII really, I agree with you that it got a lot more fun in the more difficult battles.

    I really enjoyed it though. Can't quite put my finger on why, but I had a really good time playing it.

    Congrats, you are almost nerdier than I.

    I wonder if I'll get knocked out the top 10 someday.

    I did go ahead and buy Symphonia Chronicles. Will be starting after I get through some of my portables.

    Nice. I'm playing Yakuza 4 now. Beat it yesterday but I still have a lot to do.

    Still have to finish Chrono Cross too.

    on 05 May 2014

    I see. I'm making my way through DanganRonpa primarily. Playing Xenosaga on the side (almost done with episode 1!) and a few other pick and play titles.

    on 05 May 2014

    Is this your first time playing Xenosaga? I thought ep 1 was alright, 2 as well. 3 is great though,

    on 05 May 2014

    Yeah, I've been playing through games with Zucas and we choose that to play through. We've only got like 3-4 hours left.

    on 05 May 2014

    Oh cool. I would read the Perfect Guide after you're done with the games:

    One of my favourite RPG of all time! When I was in high school I played that game almost a whole year straight. I beat it like... 7 times! Great game indeed!

    on 09 April 2014

    I'm at the Viper Manor...it's decent so far. No random battles is great.

    on 09 April 2014

    It gets better the more you play! A cool feature that the game has too is that you can escape ANY battle in the game... yes, even on the final boss battle you can escape :P.

    on 10 April 2014

    Yeah I realized that...bosses still block you off though :x

    But I'm still on here :P I don't care about console wars and have little interest in sales anymore so there isn't a whole lot to talk about.

    Not true though! I had 22 posts-per-day ratio and I've hardly ever talked about sales in this site!
