Quote- Lastly I recommend kingdom hearts: chain of memories. Not a general recommendation, because the fighting system is slow and does not revolve around crowd control like the other games (only one person can attack or use magic at any given time), but it can be enjoyable if you like the battle system. The system revolves about playing cards in order to use attacks or magic. They can be blocked with higher numbers, which can lead to frustrations if your stronger attacks are low numbered. Other general gripes are about world navigation, which can be slow due to using separate cards to progress and overall weak story.
Quote from: fairdenizen on January 10, 2013, 12:32:35 PMEver since I played the PS2 remake of this game, I've been thoroughly convinced that it has not only the best fighting system in KoH universe, but possibly the best fighting system of any RPG, ever.

Quote from: DankPanties on January 10, 2013, 01:28:49 PMThen why weren't you interested in Skies Of Arcadia you silly guy? This game offers both in spades. The Pyramid dungeon I did last night reminded me a lot of Zelda too.
Quote from: granz on January 10, 2013, 02:14:01 PMTrying to collect everything is a complete nightmare. I don't plan to confine myself to a particular location of the game for 20 hours at a time just so I can go around harvesting thousands of enemies for my bestiary.
Quote from: granz on January 10, 2013, 02:14:01 PMI played some of the original Legendary Starfy on GBA, (just the first title) then I made it half-way through the one that was actually localized on the DS. It's an okay series, but it feels too monotonous. After completing a few stages, there's no motivation to keep pressing on, and the story doesn't conclude by the time I've already seen all the game has to offer.
Quote from: Garoth Moulinoski on January 10, 2013, 02:27:26 PMWhat you've spoken about it does make it sound a little interesting (except for the encounter rate)
Quote from: SargeSmash on January 10, 2013, 05:03:38 PMUnless, of course, you're talking a sealed copy. $70-$100 is about right on that.
Quote from: granz on January 10, 2013, 02:14:01 PMMega Man Zero - I never could get into Mega Man. I tried to play some of the classics, then X6 on PS1, then some of the Zero games. It seems like it would be right down my alley since since I like Metroid. I can't explain my disinterest. One of the games I played was simply too frustrating, though. I had to keep up with this whole ranking system, then something about collecting "Elfs." Being a perfectionist, it was just too difficult for me to achieve a perfect score on every stage and simultaneously keep track of any items or power-ups that could be permanently lost or missed. I like challenging games, but there's a distinction to be made between challenging and demanding.On a similar note, I didn't like Sword of Mana for the same reason. Trying to collect everything is a complete nightmare. I don't plan to confine myself to a particular location of the game for 20 hours at a time just so I can go around harvesting thousands of enemies for my bestiary. (when you defeat 999 of an enemy, it's replaced by a superboss version of itself) What's more, there are very rare enemies that appear only at a rate of 1/256 or so. Trying to collect just one instance of that enemy for your bestiary can take hours. Because it's impossible to return to some areas after leaving them, that makes certain bestiary entries (and superboss enemies) permanently missable.
Quote from: Gideon Zhi on January 10, 2013, 01:03:45 PMI always ended up running out of cards, especially in longer battles or boss fights, since it seems cards can only be refreshed a certain number of times per battle. What was I doing wrong?
