My characters are all level 15, with at least lvl 11 in generalist, and level 13 in their primary classes (lvl 16 for black mage on the girl). Is this over-leveled for the area or is it going to get harder from here on out?

Just finished the section you are about to come to next, the Dead Forest. That part was pretty easy too, as was the boss, but there were a couple of mobs that did a bit more damage. I have no idea what level my guys are though, so I don't know if you are ahead or what.

Love cheese, although the good stuff is hard to get around here. I love English sharp cheddars especially. I will occasionally order some off of iGourmet.com. There is one they have that has a mold going through it that is amazing. Localing I can get a Canadian cheese, Black Diamond Cheddar which is great, but not cheap either.

Sage Derby is another favorite.

Oh and you can never go wrong with some real Parmigiano-Reggiano, salami and bread.

Unfortunately you can't get real good cheese in the US do to strict laws on pasteurization, so we miss out on a lot.

Ahh ok, I thought someone else said that the patch just added the incredibly hard mode. I guess I will either make a HK account or put it on hold (probably the later, I am lazy), becuase I am not having fun with it right now. The potential is there, but when I get a new skill to try out but never have to use it because I can just use attack to win a battle there isn't much point.

Does it get harder in normal mode later on though? Or is it still a cake walk 20 hours later?

I am confused. I am about 6 hours in and going through the sea passages, and only had about 2 boss fights and they were easy. I started a new game to try it on hard, but I never saw the option. I am getting really bored with it because combat is just clicking battles without any strategy.

Where do you choose the difficulty??

i always thought that the wind and water spells hit everyone because it flows or blows,instead of like fire being controlled in one place....hmm,does that make sense,because i have just woken up sorry paranoid

Makes sense, but the spell description on screen says "one target" for wind, and "one row" for water.

According to the manual charging wind causes "Range." Guess that means hit everyone. Thanks for the help guys.

- We need to be able to see the HP on the baddies, sometimes I forget which mob I already attacked, or which mob was healed

Agreed, I really dislike that. But I don't know if you noticed but in the settings you can choose how to default target, it defaults to lowest HPs, so your guys will automatically aim for the most damaged enemy.

My question is, the black magic wind spell says it hits one target, so why does it hit every target in both rows everytime I use it?

I am loving this game, I am surprised it isn't getting more talk. I would think people like Animal Crossing would love it since there is so much more to do.

About halfway through Summer of the first year and finally cleared out the first cave. I just wish I could upgrade my house so the game would open up even more, but at this point I still only have 600 wood.
2652  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Blue Dragon Getting Some Poor Reviews on: September 02, 2007, 04:00:07 AM
About 4 hours in, and so far it's OK. It's not hooking me like I hoped. Combat is way too easy, and it should be a lot more fun with all those skills to play with, but ends up being a chore. If you put some effort into character developent things get even easier (HP and MP come back so quickly they aren't an issue). It is satifying my need for an JRPG, but I would really like something a bit more detailed and thought out.

And Ridah, most JPRGs are childish, no matter what the system. FF started out on Nintendo even.
2653  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rune Factory Impressions / Friends Codes on: September 01, 2007, 12:04:26 AM
Really enjoying this game, even if I don't feel like I am too far along.

Is there anything you can buy to store stuff in your house? I don't want my upgraded seeds to stay in my inventory when out of season. A trunk or something?

Also what does "expirty" mean? Fruit/veggies have this stat, but it doesn't seem like they rot, but then again I have never kept something that long.

Yeah, I think NBC might be hurting themselves a bit here.  It may not be a huge revenue generator but I've heard that iTunes has been responsible for for keeping increasing the buzz for shows like The Office.  $5.00 pricing is ludicrous as well. 

I think 1.99 is too much personally-5$ is just laughable.

Agreed. I wouldnt even consider $5.

I like that Apple is fighting stuff like this and at least trying to get ride of DRM.

Are we going to get the difficulty level patch here in the US? (I don't want to mess with creating foreign accounts just to get a patch.)

Also can you change the difficulty in mid game?
2658  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Blue Dragon Getting Some Poor Reviews on: August 25, 2007, 05:05:09 AM
A 78% on Game Rankings after 20 reviews? I wouldn't call that bad, especially for a game that appeals to a very small US market. The game also has a number of very good reviews. Quite a bit actually. It appears to be a love it or like it ok kind of game going off of Game Rankings.

Ran it on and AMD 4400, 2gigs RAM, and a 7800 GTX at 1280x960, not perfect, but not bad, way better than I expected. After playing both the 360 and PC version I am without out a doubt buying the PC version, for the controls alone. I felt much more comfortable playing with a mouse and keyboard. Plus this is one of those games to show off your PC down the road. Once I get a Dirext X 10 card, I think the game will be near perfect performance wise.

Can't get File Planets stupid Download Manager to update, so I can't even get in line for the demo.

I already played the 360 demo, I just want to see how it runs on my PC.

Any time there's a vote to condemn Israel's aggressions towards their neighbors, the U.S. always vetoes it. It's like we're their puppet.

Or a close ally. i think we are trying to protect the one trustworthy foothold we have in the Middle East.

The shipping bin is pissing me off. Can you ship fish in it? The history doesn't keep track of fish, I didn't see any money from them. I have been trying to keep track to see what works and what doesn't but I am still confused. The money is supposed to arrive sometime the next day, right? What time? It seems like I ship stuff, and don't see any pay off. How does the bin work?
2666  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Irony: Israel turns away Darfur refugees on: August 19, 2007, 11:31:24 PM
I am not sure we can talk too much shit as Americans seeing that out government is doing it's best to ignore Darfur.

It does seem a bit odd that the Israelis would reject them, but it is against their laws. I can kind of see why they wouldn't want muslims in the country.

5 hours into it, and I haven't had the need to grind. A couple of battles were tough, but everything has been winnable so far. The game could use some random battles (the inbetween battles are the same everytime you enter them).

Really? I'd swear that the one I reentered at least had different starting positions. It was the spot North of Carwee Town.

Hmm, I only entered 2 or so, and they looked the exactly the same to me. Will have to look into some more of them.
2668  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Rune Factory Impressions / Friends Codes on: August 19, 2007, 02:28:35 PM
I started last night. Still not sure what to think of it. Seems like a more in depth Animal Crossing so far, but it hasn't really grabbed me. I just planted some crops and wandered the city a bit. looks like there is going to be a lot to do, but at this point I am struggleing with the interface. Character models kind of suck, but all the backgrounds looks great. Music is decent, I haven't turned it off yet at least.

I don't run my network in WEP, so I can't post a code. All the DS games I have been playing, maybe I should switch it back.

Yeah, my biggest gripe is that you can't just move a cursor around the screen to examine units as far as I can tell.
For instance, it'd be nice if I could hop around between characters to see how much xp they currently have, so
I can decide if I want someone else to finish off a character for the xp bonus.

You can, once a character starts a turn press B, then you can move the cursor around. You do have to press A on a friend or enemy to see their stats though. It will show their stats and highlight their move distance on the map.

Put it in a couple hours today. Some random thoughts.

* The cut scenes drag on a little long. There is a lot of chatter going on and while I am enjoying the story, sometimes I just want to fight.
* Very linear. Couple random battles, next story battle, repeat. So far no decisions to make.
* Can be a bit hard to see who is where when everyone is clumped up, would help if you could rotate the map.
* I went with the stylus-less controls and they are pretty solid.

Enjoying the game, but it's not anything special.

Oh boy, I finally played the demo last night and I was disgusted by the frame-rate. As much as I want to support the game, I'm skipping it. I simply can't stand slowdown in my games, especially if it is going to be so commonplace.

Really? I barely noticed it. I mean I did notice it, but it didn't bug me enough to want to skip the game.
2676  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Luminous Arc Impressions on: August 17, 2007, 07:08:12 AM
One thing that does bug me. On the world map, I can use the buttons fine. Once I get into battle it's stylus only, which is a bit clunky in areas. I believe you can change it to buttons only, but I like to mix it up, I don't want to be limited to one control method.

it doesn't necessarily mean 'fuck off' in a negative tone.  Ie, positive 'Hey Calvin,  finger' or negative 'ATB?  finger'.  I do agree Zeke should have kept his gripes to PM's though.

No, I am pretty sure in the above context it meant fuck off. Obviously me and Zeke aren't friends.
