I finally managed to get Firaja, but I only survived the first boss with only Cloud left and he had like 5HP...
And for the second fight I had to reset 5 times to get rid of the sin spawn without loosing someone on turn 1. (Tipp: If a battle goes badly, force close the app. It'll allow you to do the battle over from the start without losing Stamina. It's a cheat, but for some insane stages like this, I don't feel bad about using it as a last resort. Especially if I have to spend Mythril healing after the first boss).

Holy craaap. The boss rush they just added isn't gonna happen for me. As with Phoenix in the last event, I don't care that much about summons anyway.

In good news, I managed to collect 50 Mythril. Just waiting for this current draw event to have a day with equip I want. Looking for Terra's or Vanille's SBs specifically.

222
If anyone wants to add me my code is 9efR. I have a few Lv50 chars, but they don't have any equip soul breaks, so they are probably uninteresting to use for now, but who knows where they'll take the system in the future. I have item soul breaks for Black Mage and Bard, but they are still Lv1. I'll level them up when I have nothing else to do, which might be quite a while off...

So many opportunities for Mytril right now. The quests, the new events, the revamped dailies give clear rewards all over... Going to save up for the 11 draw for the first time, usually I'm not patient enough for that.

223
I'm not a huge arcade gamer, but everytime I do open up Mame for whatever reason I end up playing NeoGeo games pretty much exlusively. They have the perfect balance between presentation and playability. Newer stuff emulated on Mame is usually butt ugly early 3D and I was never a fan of Street Fighter so SF3 doesn't get me to ignore NeoGeo either.

My favourite is Garou - Mark of the Wolves.

224
Maintenance is ongoing right now.

And it looks like the official wiki has been taken over by KKK and hentai images, I guess that happens when you take the kid's toys away for a few hours.

225
Facebook likes isn't really metric for anything.

Before that were was a celebration for 5 Million (!) downloads in the Japanese version alone.
The (International) Android version has 66k ratings. The Android store puts the number of installations in the 500k-1M bracket.

I wouldn't be surprised if the number of downloads globally and across all platforms crossed into double digit million territory already.

Also, even if it was only 1.1M earnings, that would still be a profit, considering this game was extremely cheap to make. But I'm sure they made a killing on it and continue to make it.

You have no idea how insane some mobile players are. You can't approach this with a hardcore gamer's logic, those people don't play by our rules :) They just throw tons of money at useless things. I played quite a few F2P games over the years on the side (Star Trek Online, Marvel Puzzle Quest, Neverwinter, some Game of Throne thingy now this) and it's always the same mechanisms. It may look illogical to us, but all of those games were successful with a businessmodel based on asking a ton of money for little in return. If 1% of the playerbase is retarded enough it's sufficient to carry the other 99%. The F2P industry runs on the principle of exploiting "whales".

226
They profit from the rich but stupid people who'll buy 3 or 4 11 draws in a row in order to get that new soul break they want. It's sad. I would prefer it myself if there was something in the game I could get at a reasonable price to support the game. But currently the only way to spend money is to throw it away. 25 bucks with a very real chance of getting nothing but crap is just not a worthwhile offer.

227
Of course, presumably Phoenix can multi-revive and inflict fire damage all at once.

It can be crafted too so you can check out the description in the crafting menu :) It revives one dead party member and is AoE, so you got it mostly right. The combination with revive is indeed very neat, but still, 1 use is just too much of a waste of a slot IMO. I could almost craft it too, only missing one 4* summon orb.

What I could really use is a AoE heal. But I think those only exist in special weapon soul breaks so far  :-\

228
You could jump straight ahead to the Phoenix stage afaik and ignore the others for now. I read it has 180k HP though and I just don't have enough ice skills to even begin to scratch that, even if everyone of them hit for 9999 damage. But eh, I don't care, I never use summons, not worth it for the limited amount of uses they have and how rare summon orbs are. I'm happy having finally crafted Quake and Bladeblitz last week, that's enough AoE for most fights.

229
I am, what does the friend feature do?

We'll know Monday. The annoucement says something about sending one of your heroes to your friends. I'm guessing there'll be bonuses involved, maybe it's a 6th party member. I hope it doesn't replace any existing one, that could make it pretty unattractive if you already have a pimped out team.

230
So is anyone still actually playing this? Looks like they'll roll out friend features on Sunday/Monday.

I play new games when they excite. I usually only play old games when something, it might be an IRC discussion, a podcast, or a news article losely related to the series, reminds me that they exist and gives me a craving to play them. So currently I'm playing Witcher 3 which is brand new, but for the next game I'll play I have Persona 3 Portable lined up, because Persona Q on 3DS made me want to play that.

Oh and as a general rule, I almost never replay a game I've beaten before. Considering how many completely new games to experience there are, it's a huge waste of time. The only exception being games that are in my absolute Top10. I do replay stuff like Jagged Alliance 2, KOTOR or System Shock 2 once every few years. But those are the exception to the rule.

There are lot's of things that can draw someone into an RPG. Story (Xenogears), characters (Shadow Hearts), mechanics (SMT). If some people go so far and will play a 40 hour game just because of the music, then no one will stop them either.
MQ still fails at RPG, story and mechanics though. It doesn't matter which you value, it'll disappoint in every single way. Stuff like being able to avoid battles is just an incidental side aspect that can't negate a broken core gameplay - terribly boring one-dimensional combat. There is really nothing to reward you for going forward. No awesome characters to meet, no surprising story twists to see, no awesome battles to conquer. Just a stream of endless meh.

All the points that were supposedly good about the game (except the music) boil down to: the game can be played from start to finish without crashing. Congratulations.

hehe One of the main reasons why I kept going with this is because I assumed that this was one of those cases where most people's opinions were being warped by what is usually heard about the game rather than the way it actually is. It's easy for that to happen some times if the right people speak loudly enough and there is no one to effectively counter their point.

If your driving along a road and everyone is driving towards you, maybe it's YOU who's going the wrong way. Also possible at least...

Seriously, if people have to reach for "the grass tile is not hideous I guess" to say something good about the game, you know you are in trouble. Saying FFMQ is good is like saying E.T. is good because if you read a FAQ you'll see that there kinda is a point to the game after all.

The "difficulty" of a RPG is how much patience the required grinding takes.

Unless it's SMT, then it's how well you can memorize the weaknesses of 10 enemies at a time.

Can't contribute anything worthwhile to the topic, but I had to chime in to say that the shortened board preview from the main page for this topic is priceless.

In the meantime, why not take a look at Skullgirls? Everyone seems to appreciate that one.

Good one  :beer:

What did you find so bad about that one? I liked that game a lot more than Ys VI.

Having a party didn't add anything gameplay wise except more annoying micro management. The AI controlled character's damage was artificially limited, if the AI decided to attack at all instead of standing around. So it was just a couple of extra HP bars (that controlled worse than Adol) you had to switch to. Also, Ys was never big on story. It was always a useless throwaway story about the chosen one having to kill some ancient evil. And that was fine because it didn't get in the way of the excellent action. In Ys 7 it feels like they upped the talking and cutscene time by a factor of 10. Only the story is still the same shit. And it does get in the way and they are massively wasting your time with it.

Then when it came to the final boss and I saw that I was fucked because I hadn't levelled and equipped my whole entourage, it was time to put the game down and never look back.

Ys 1's final boss is so shitty it ruined the whole game for me sadly. Don't remember anything about Ys 2 even though I just played it last year or so. Might be alzheimers settling in or it just wasn't memorable at all.

The series only gets brilliant with Oath of Felghana/Ark of Napishtim and then everything till Seven. Seven was terrible too sadly. Haven't tried Celceta yet because of that.
