Quote from: IhsoyOhcysp on November 19, 2015, 04:59:56 PMFor those were fans of Symphonia and are curious about the game:The good:-Battle system is fun, but really complex. Most skill-ups are tied to your equipment rather than leveling up. Easy to pick up, hard to master, like Tetris.-A lot of difficulty levels to accommodate people from faceroll easy to eye-claw-out hard.-Game looked nice even at 30 FPS, and there's now a fan patch to get rid of the 30 FPS cap for PC.-The transitions from overworld maps and cutscenes into battles are incredibly smooth, probably the smoothest I've ever seen in a game.-For the most part, likable party characters. Sorey and Mikleo are (I think?) the first male same-sex couple in a AAA JRPG, yet Bandai made the relationship more three-dimensional than intercourse ing Bioware and their "LGBT RELATIONSHIPS MUST HAVE ANGST AND POLITICAL COMMENTARY" bullpoop. No one gives a intercourse other than party members occasionally shipping/teasing them, and it's present without being overbearing. Edna is a chan-tier troll.-Skits, the filler voice conversations between characters, are good.The meh:-Dungeon design is kind of uninspired, but not as bad as the press is making it out to be. There's more variety than, say, Persona.-Music. Couple standout tracks like the water trial and earth trial, but most of it falls into the "pleasant but ultimately forgettable" category.-Story. Traditional JRPG fare thus far, with all the good and bad cliches that implies.-Had some game-breaking bugs such as 7.1 audio causing CTDs upon release, but Bandai responded quickly.-The difference in difficulty between trash and bosses is jarring, with most trash taking 30s or less to kill and hitting like wet noodles, while bosses can one or twoshot with standard attacks. You really feel like bosses are bosses, but sometimes it's kind of intense. Symphonia was, for the most part, like this, too.The bad:-Battle system is fun, but really complex. Most skill-ups are tied to your equipment rather than leveling up. There's no "training dummy" or the like where you can really sit down and practice mechanics.-AI can be charitably described as "dumb" and uncharitably described as "suicidal." It's not like Symphonia where Raine is always there to clutch you with heals after big hits, and your party members have problems staying the intercourse away from hard-hitting bosses that will wreck their face.-One character, Rose, is a blatant writer's pet.Overall: B/B- game; strong recommendation to JRPG fans, recommendation with reservations to general audience. Worth about $30.

Quote from: Spud on November 19, 2015, 09:19:46 PMThe camera can really intercourse you over sometimes. I can't fight anywhere near walls without the camera pointing directly at the ground. Other than that though, I'm really enjoying it. It's a shame what happened to Alisha though.

Quote from: viewtifulboy on November 23, 2015, 02:41:33 PMWorst is Vesperia, right? I completely forgot about that game because I moved on to better, more interesting ones.
Quote from: Zero on November 23, 2015, 06:33:19 PMCan't decide if I want it on PS4 or PC.
Quote from: viewtifulboy on November 23, 2015, 07:47:10 PMFine? Characters have almost no character and nothing ever seems to happen outside of random events that have nothing to do with each other and what plot points there are are mostly forced. WAH I WANT SYMPHONIA
Quote from: IhsoyOhcysp on November 23, 2015, 09:04:26 PM-Get it on PC if you a) want to encourage Bandai to make more PC ports and b) aren't afraid of jumping through a few additional hoops to get the optimal play experience. The controls feel much better on a PS controller than kb/mouse, and if you want to use a PS controller, you'll need to download some custom drivers. You also have to install a fanmod to get rid of the FPS cap. Neither of these are particularly difficult to do, but some people want an experience that Just Works™.-Get on console if neither of the above points apply.
Quote from: viewtifulboy on November 25, 2015, 09:11:14 PMDawn of the New World was more of a spin-off. I didn't want a sequel I wanted a game that was as good. Yuri and Judith are pretty well developed, kind of, but Raven seems one-note through the whole thing and anytime he changes that note it's only brief.
