The only RPG type game I liked more was Fire Emblem Awakening but that's more of an SRPG, so it's a little bit of an apples to oranges comparison.
Started Ni no Kuni but put it on break, the beginning to all jrpgs is always so slow with the battle system and such basic battles, will start it up in a bit or either after I get through a non rpg game. I love the voice acting and story. Music sounds movie quality.
Some new Persona Q clips are up:
X can't come out fast enough. I hope that at E3 we get a bit more insight into the game, as the latest only showed some short gameplay. We don't even know what the setting is, or even the faces of the characters.
Oh, and the mechs makes me squeal every time is see one. All I'm thinking the reason for the lack of information, is that the developers are simply just having fun playing the game, but can we really blame them?
Atlus revealed that there will be a big Persona announcement on May 2nd. Hopefully it will be more Persona 5 info (e.g. characters).
Started Dragon Age Origins, but Im using so many guides for it, so much reading just to start out building a mage. Anyway spent two hours yesterday to start the Harrowing hopefully get farther today now that Im all set. Love the reading material in game, such a well thought out world.
Never played as a mage, only assassin/duelist. To me in most WRPGs, assassins are the more difficult to play through the game with,so I always go the thief/rogue/assassin route. In Origins the spell combinations were very useful...it's one of the things that should have been built on in DA2 but they removed it.
I just recently finished The Witcher 2. It's been a long road for me beating that game.
Even though I had actually bought it on day one, at first my graphics card wasn't good enough and I didn't really like the combat anyway, so I set it aside. Then later I tried it again after the Enhanced version came out and had I heard they fixed broken blocking system. Was enjoying myself a bit but my computed died and I lost the save. Third time was the charm though.
Still can't say I loved the combat. Especially when your dealing with multiple enemies, and I ended up really wishing for access to more magic. It's such a tease the way the mages can do tons of cool stuff and you don't have access to any of it. I found Igni and Aard underpowered and fairly useless. Axii too situational to help in most fights. Quen was ok but usually not worth the vigor; yet somehow when the enemy mages use it's an absolute defense. Yrden was the only spell I really liked using.
Liked the story though.
A barrier for me really getting into the Witcher series has been that I really don't like a lot of the characters. Like Triss and Dandelion, I'm just wasn't that interested in them. But toward the end the Witcher 2 I got a dose of characters a liked a lot better. I've always liked Zoltan and his friends were all great. Then there was Saskia, Cynthia, even Iorveth and Roach started getting traction with me. Even the lodge Witches, despite their pseudo villain status were characters I wouldn't mind seeing more of. I hope most of those will end up in the sequel.
So anyone plays Child of Light? I got that with 2-3 DLC and it seems like a fun game. Not sure if it's difficult or not though.
I heard that it was rather short but a fun game nevertheless.
Older Ken in P4UA2 looks amazing!
