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  :-\

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.

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.

244
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:

Gaming Discussion / Re: Ys Chronicles I+II
« on: May 23, 2015, 03:41:37 am »
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.

If you own a dualshock 3 at leas, tehre are drivers for it that amke them believe its totes an xbox controller all the time.

I didn't have much luck with those drivers personally. I'd recommend just buying a wired 360 controller for PC gaming in general. It seems to have gotten slightly cheaper since the XBOne released too, at least from what I remember paying for mine.

A NeoGeo emulator with a few KoFs and Mark of the Wolves is way better than either...

Jagged Alliance 2 is real time? :D

I'm sure it was a slip up given the huge list, I think it's otherwise pretty excellent and should keep a newcomer busy for a decade or so.

Beat Shadows of Mordor.

Pretty fun game. It takes the concept of Assassin's Creed but builds an actual game around it. There is still some useless collecting, though not as much as in some current open world games. The main missions are great though and the core mechanic of scouting out special Orks and planning how to assassinate them is very engaging. Good game, should start to be affordable now too (I got it for 18 bucks).

ROM Hacking Discussion / Re: Dreamcast ARC Files

Arc(hive) is a generic data file that could be anything. Game or developer-specifc. It's like asking how to extract sound from a SNES ROM. It's just a data blob and you need to reverse engineer the internal formats.
