I have a knight...any good strategies?  Is everyone a wizard? 

I'm playing a Knight as well, and am up to 20th level.  FWIW, I use very few spells and concentrate more on regular skull attacks.  I do 13 damage on a standard 3 skull combo, and will occasionally use the Stun spell to get in an extra couple combos.  I've mainly been pumping up my Battle and Morale skills (they're both at 21, iirc), and have only put a couple points each into the masteries and cunning.  I've also crafted a couple decent weapons that give me pluses to damage and mana.

Not sure how this build will hold up over the long run, but I've only lost a few times and can take on enemies 3-4 levels higher than me with no problem.  The nice thing is that I'm really not dependent on any particular mana type to succeed.  I can play defensive and try to keep the opponent from gaining mana, but I find that simply focusing on basic skull combos is pretty successful.

Quote
And forgive me if this is in the manual I haven't read it, but what is the downside to losing a battle?  Several battles I have lost, it tells me I got some experience and then I still have to fight that monster again and win for the story to move on.  It seems like it would be a good idea to lose so I could get more experience.  Do I not get as good of items? or some other penalty for losing?

The only disadvantage I see to losing is that you don't get the extra EXP and Gold bonuses you would normally get if you win.  I don't think there's any kind of XP ding for losing.

While in the same genre, FFTA & FFE are vastly different games.  FFTA is about developing individual characters, while FE was much more about team tactics & strategy.  I much prefer the former, which is why I loved FFTA and could never get into FE.

I also think the "kiddie" storyline turned a lot of people off from the get-go.

Actually, there are quite a few RPG's coming for the 360.  I think the PS3 will be the RPG console of choice in the long run, but there are quite a few coming for 360 that have potential to be very good.   I picked one up now for that very reason, since I'm mainly an RPG gamer.

Remember guys, in GoW it's all about taking cover.

That's the biggest problem I'm having with GoW.  The few FPS games I've enjoyed have been all about run & gun, while GoW seems much more tactical.  Having to constantly duck behind cover is a foreign concept I'm having some trouble wrapping my brain around.

I'm a pretty decent FPS player with keyboard & mouse, but for some reason have never been able to get a handle on console FPS controls.  I feel like I'm trying to control my guy with an Etch-A-Sketch.

Then never play R6:V. In GoW you at least have a chance of surviving gunblasts to the face and chest. In RS:V you are D double E to teh A back upta da D.

Yeah, can't see myself enjoying that one much.  I tried both GRAW and whatever the latest Splinter Cell game is, and completely lost interest within about 15 minutes.  Part of it is that I simply don't like the military setting, part of it is that I simply don't have the patience for that sort of thing.

Mind you, I'm not opposed to a more stealth-oriented game.  Hell, I loved both the Thief & Tenchu series.  I guess if I'm a ninja or medieval thief, it's just far more appealing.

I'll choose to believe, for the moment, that the 360 will age nicely like a fine wine.

Don't you guys think that this console system would be a great platform for a full blown MMORPG?

Don't feel too bad.  I just got my 360 this week and I'm already discovering that there's not many games currently out that I want to play.  About the only game that interests me so far is Enchanted Arms, and I've tried quite a few.  Bought the system with Gears of War, Ghost Recon, and Tony Hawk 8, then purchased Enchanted Arms, Table Tennis and rented NHL2K7 and Madden 07.   Out of all those, EA is probably the only one I'll keep.  I might enjoy GoW if I was better at console shooters, but when you can barely make it past the first level on Easy mode, that's a pretty good indicator the game isn't for you.  I was really hoping that at least one of the others would grab me, but none of them have.

That being said, I knew this would be the case right now and purchased the system more on potential.  With games like Blue Dragon, Lost Odyssey, Mass Effect, Assassin's Creed, Bioshock, etc., there should be plenty of stuff for me to play in the next year.  it might gather dust for a while, but I'm sure there will be enough to keep me busy later.  smile

I just bought a 360 Premium system with the 20 GB HD from a fellow GT'er.  I went through and deleted all the stuff from the previous owner that I didn't want (i.e. demos, profiles, movies, etc), so there's only about 300-400 MB that I'm using right now.   However, when I check "Device options" on the Memory tab through the dashboard, it says the storage capacity of the drive is only 13.9 GB.  It lists 13.9 GB total with 13.7 GBavailable, and there's a note below that says "remaining space reserved for system use".

It seems crazy that the system is using nearly 30% of the HD capacity for "system use", whatever that is.  So do I have something wrong with my HD?

I wouldn't worry to much about it being down; it's a rare occurance. I think maybe 3 times in the past year and a half. (IIRC).

As to arcade racers, I'd say burnout is the best they have right now. I hear good things about NFS:MW ... never played Carbon. You could also pick yourself up some platinum titles on the cheap.

Arcade racers rank like this:
Burnout Revenge
NFS:MW
NFS:Carbon

everything else way below. Those three games are superb.

Maybe I'll give Carbon a shot.  I've already played Burnout & NFS:  MW to death on my XBox.

Having never played online before, I've got one question about XBox Live.  It's a monthly subscription service, right? I think this system comes with a trial month, so I'll give that a shot.  Just wondering how much to expect after that if I decide to actually play online.
Once you try XBL for a month, you'll want to get a subscription  icon_biggrin

We'll see.  I've never been a big multi-player gamer, so I'm not sure how much appeal it will have to me.  I'd at least like to give it a shot with the OO crowd though.

On a related note, didn't I see somewhere that XBox Live is down today (3/27)?  If the on-line service is down the day the console arrives, then maybe that's an omen that I really don't need to play online.  slywink

Having both GH & GH2 on PS2, I'm going to wait on the 360 version until I see what kind of add-ons and downloadable stuff they come out with.  The extra 10'ish songs do nothing for me, so there's no sense buying it again at this point.  If they start doing regular downloadable songs, I'm sure I'll pick it up.

Definitely looking forward to it after I saw a preview in Game Informer (or some magazine anyway) a while back.
I was under the impression that you controlled an actual character in the game - while the minions were AI controlled (but you could tell them what to do as you were their 'overlord') Now I'm not so sure anymore.

Bought one two weeks ago made in Nov 06. Not a problem what so ever. But it is a tough call with the supposedly new and improved ones coming out this spring.

I also need to add that this is my first console. Although I've had no technical problems with the "box" I am having another dilemma. I don't find myself drawn to use it as much as I thought or hoped I would. I have Ghost Recon, Gears of War, Call of Duty 3, and rented NFS: Carbon, Tiger Wood 07. Other than the initial wow factor from the graphics of a couple of these titles they just aren't grabbing me.

I love gaming, and when I have time to game but find myself banging around on the PC still instead of enjoying my very expensive new toy, I have to wonder why.

I have the box set up in my bedroom on a dedicated 27 inch HDTV...I'm comfortable and secluded to enjoy the box, but I'm just not enthralled with it.

I think part of the problem is the games I have for it. I'm a MMORPG\RPG lover...Also flight simming is deep in my gaming roots.
From what I can tell shooters seem to be the majority of what most people like about the box.

I hope that eventually I find some titles now or soon to be released that make the purchase of this system\TV\peripherals worth the money. 
YMMV>.

Interesting. This is actually the thing that has always prevented me from taking the plunge. I always go back to the more immersive RPG type games. I'm going to get one of the new Xboxs, but mainly to start playing sports games with my son. I don't think i'll ever be able to give up the PC.

The lack of RPG's was my main hold-up with the 360 as well.  However, there are a few coming for the system that look pretty interesting.    Most of them are western-style as opposed to JRPG's (with Blue Dragon being the major exception), but I think there may be enough to tide me over until I can afford a PS2 for my JRPG fix.

Quote from: TiLT on March 26, 2007, 12:18:12 PM

If you pay close attention to the hints the AI gives you during your own turns, you'll see that it sometimes recommend picking mana over damage as well. This happens when certain colors of mana becomes a rare commodity, or when it's vitally important that your opponent doesn't get any more mana of that color. Sometimes this stuff is far more important than a few points of extra damage, especially if your Battle is low.


Thanks Tilt.  Since I'm playing as a Knight and my Battle skill is pretty high (20, iirc plus a couple item bonuses), it's almost always better to take the damage.  I've found that trying to prevent the opponent from gaining a certain type of mana is damn near impossible (they're almost always going to get it on combos from the top anyways), so I go for damage 99% of the time.   Although I'm sure that playing a more magic focused character might change that play style a bit.

2: I've had no problems with the captures I've made so far. Then again, I'm pretty decent at puzzles like these in the first place. Perhaps there is something wrong in the approach you choose to take with these puzzles? In any case, I don't get the impression that capturing enemies is vitally important. So far I don't even use any of the spells I've been able to research from captured enemies; My own spells are simply better.

Yeah, I generally suck at those type of puzzles anyways, so I'm glad they're not really a "required" part of the game.  They're more frustration for me than anything.  Although I would like a cooler mount than a Giant Rat...  slywink



10152  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Overlords on: March 26, 2007, 01:10:35 PM

I'm now at Level 19, and have been having a really good time with it.  Switching to Easy mode seems to alleviate much of the "cheating" feeling, although the AI can be pretty suspect (i.e. sometimes passing up obvious major damage combos for lesser mana).  In general though,  switching levels has made the game playable for me, where it was simply an exercise in frustration before.  I actually won my first city siege last night, which I though was pretty impressive since the city started out with 100 more HP than me!  With my upgraded towers and keep, that'll be a nice gold-producing addition.  smile

A couple questions:

1.  Is there an advantage to upgrading your mount?  I've upgraded my Giant Rat to level 8, and I don't see any noticeable difference.
2.  Is it just me, or is the "capture" mechanic endlessly frustrating?  I've pretty much given up on trying to capture enemies, since I can never figure out their stupid puzzles. 

Overall, I'm enjoying it much more that I expected I would.  I thought after the frustrating first few hours that I would be giving up on it quickly, but it's certainly got me hooked.

They'll probably exchange it for you no problem, but you'll have to raise holy hell to get a refund. 

On hardware?  Pretty much everybody will let you return hardware no questions asked for 30 days.  Software is where it's a bitch to get a refund. 

Maybe they've changed their stance then.  I have tried to return hardware to them twice, and had to raise a massive stink both times in order to get a refund.

First time was on an unopened X-Box with a purchase receipt from the day before.  I was told they had problems with "people stealing systems then counterfeiting receipts" so they weren't accepting hardware for returns, only exchanges.  Second one was on a GBA SP that I had for a week, then decided to return and wait for the DS release.  Had to battle it out with a manager on both occasions (the X-Box one turned rather unpleasant), but they finally gave me the money back.

As much as I love the game, like Unbreakable says, it cheats far too much.

I know Bejeweled is at its core a luck game, but the computer cheats. It has to. I am a lvl 19 Warrior, and fights now are trivial stupidity.

At this point, the mobs I fight usually get the first turn, and will almost always proceed to get 3 and 4 combo skull hits, which end up in giant chains of 4's, giving them tons of mana and knocking me for like 20+ before I even get to move. At this point, even if I try to build up mana, the computer will usually start to move pieces at the bottom, and somehow magically whatever falls from the top is EXACTLY what it needs for giant chains and tons of mana/skull spam. It knows exactly what to move to get different tiers to fall exactly into 4 and 5 chains, and even starts to anticipate the moves. I knew the game was a cheating son of a bitch when I watched it avoid a 4 skull chain, move a yellow for a 3 the opposite direction for no seeming reason, only to see what dropped new from the top of the screen was more skulls, which then auto proc'ed and kicked my ass.

The fact no matter what mob I fight can get full mana in each category by turn 14 pretty regularly...well, I give up.

Its fun when you start out, but then it becomes a clusterfuck of so many abilities and items, that the computer is just too good and has a clairvoiant anticipation of the board. Thats not fun.

I haven't played quite as much, but I'm starting to agree here.  My level 7 characters just got taken from 56 hit points to 3 in the space of 2 opponent moves.  Suppose it wouldn't be as frustrating if I saw something even close happen for me instead of just against me.  It's not a game-wrecker yet, but I can see how this could become a problem pretty quickly.

Why must we do this?  Why must we really care.  It's all personal.  If you like one system over the other, then fine.  I myself want them both to do very well, as i am a gamer and could care less about what company makes the games as long as they are great.  I only own a 360 right now, but I KNOW I will be purchasing a PS3 down the road, there is no if's and's or but's about it.  Can't we agree that both are pretty good next gen systems with potential to deliver us some great games and move on.  Let's just talk about the games man...  You'd think people were arguing over their penis sizes as much as people argue over 360 vs. PS3.  And this is nothing directly toward you Hetz, I'd just love to see more direct game talk on this board overall.  I love the impressions and personal game screen shots people give of games.  It's why I visit this forum.

Dude, just stop.  We'll have none of that rational thought 'round these parts.

This weekend will mainly be spent trying to figure out how the hell I'm going to get online access for my 360 that should be arriving next week.  I don't really want to start anything new with a new system on the way.  With any luck, I'll be able to join some GoW multiplayer games soon.  smile

Might play some Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, but that's about it.
