Interesting point about Nintendo needing to innovate more.  I was just thinking, when was the last totally original IP they came up with?

Wii Music.

I think if Nintendo went to an all-software company, they might be able to get away with trying to make some new IP, but the only way they're going to move systems is to have Mario, Zelda, DK, Metroid, etc.  Even that isn't working for them so much anymore.

I don't think this golem counts as a boss.  He's just a big dude on the overworld that you have to fight to get to the first city.  Honestly, I only tried fighting him once.  Could be that I could do better a second time, but the random mobs I had to fight on the way were tougher, so I do think I need to level a little.  It also doesn't help that I switched some guys to some new first jobs.

I don't remember that fight, I must not be there yet.  I think I'm near the end of Chapter 4.
It's right at the beginning of Chapter 4, basically.  Big thing on the map on your way to Eternia.

Heh...got to the ice golem and he wasted me (well, not wasted I guess....I stayed alive for quite a few rounds, but couldn't get him killed).  The mobs leading up to it should have been a hint.  Might need to do some grinding to get stronger before moving on with Chapter 4.
167  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (02/24) on: February 24, 2014, 03:34:04 PM
Games I am interested in:

PS3:
Castlevania: Lords of Shadow 2

PS4:
Thief


Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare


3DS:
Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy

PC:
Shadowrun: Dragonfall




Not exactly sure yet what I will be getting.  Layton is a definite, but the others are up in the air.

Had my first real challenge with the boss on
Spoiler for Hiden:
Grandship
 At first I just kept trying to pour on the damage, but he did so much himself, that I had to tone things back and manage heals and Phoenix Downs.  Managed to get him the 4th or 5th time, which was the first time I decided to change my strategy.

I really don't see why they would even entertain this.  49ers would be stupid to let him go, and Harbaugh would be stupid to leave a team that is arguably the top 3 teams in the NFL.

I'm all for incentive based contracts. If he reaches the goals laid in place, pay the man.

Wait...you actually LIKE the 49ers?  If I took all your posts on them and looked at them, I would assume you have a deep, burning hatred for them. Tongue

I should clarify my earlier statement by saying that this is more of an action/adventure game like the NES Strider, but the events of the game and the story and such are centered around the arcade/Genesis version.

Some folks here are well beyond where others are, especially someone like me with limited play time. I need to get a better handle on the whole job / ability thing before anything you see of mine becomes any kind of 'interesting'.  icon_razz

As far as the ability-link thing, I think I may disable it on all my characters.  For me, it's taking away a good bit of the discovery and feeling of progression to unlock a new job and instantly have all its skills through level 7 unlocked.

I disabled it. It took the fun out of leveling.

For me, I do it as a time saver.  I can get the abilities of the job now and not have to really just go waste time grinding to get them leveled up.  Not all my characters are abilinked, though, because I don't have enough people with higher levels in all my jobs.
175  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Re: Bravely Default coming to North America on: February 19, 2014, 03:04:24 PM
When I unlocked Pirate, I thought, well there is the first job I'm not that interested in.  Then I took a look.  Then I thought about it.  Then I put it on Tiz with Ranger as the second job and took the Knight support ability to two hand an axe.  His physical attack is now way over what it was with Ranger as main.  Plus he doesn't look like a furry.

anyone get this yet?  after seeing that it's a metroid-vania style game, I am close to pulling the trigger on it. 

Yep got it and it seems more Metroid than old school Strider I agree.

Remember that the NES version of Strider was not like the arcade game.  I think this one is more like that than the arcade.

178  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Xbox One Discussion on: February 18, 2014, 03:28:55 AM
For me, it's because it would be so cool if it worked great.  It listens to most commands just fine, but I guess whatever low power state it is in makes it seem to not respond very well to XBox On.  It seems like it has been better for my daughter since the update, but worse for me.  If it worked every time, it would totally be better than the controller, but it doesn't.  I've not given up on it yet, though.

I had a glitch in the matrix tonight.   Was playing Ryse and hit the X button and had to run out of the room for 5 mins.   Came back and the TV screen was blank.   I couldn't see anything but black but I could issue my Xbox One commands and hear myself move around the unseen menu.   Nothing worked to get the display back.  I couldn't see TV, rebooting didn't work, etc.  

On a whim I powered off and forced it into low resolution and it came back up in super low rez where I could see.   I then reset my settings to 1080p and all was fine.

Any ideas what this was all about?

This happened to me today.  I launched Dead Rising, got to the main menu, and then went to the Home Screen and it went black.  Could hear the sounds and everything.  Shut it down through voice and it was still blank when it came back on.  Had to hold the power button down to power cycle it and all was well.  This is the glitchiest console I have ever owned.  Later in the day, the satellite box wouldn't put any sound through.  Had to XBox Turn Off/Xbox On to get sound back.

Edit to say that obviously I keep my console set for standby mode.  I think this is the root of the problems, but the thing takes so long on bootup fresh that it saves me on the number of full boots in the end.  When these weird things happen I just power cycle.

Yeah, I couldn't believe Cloud Strife was the final boss, either.

For the summon thing, I assume you've refreshed the update?  Not sure how those summons really work.  Might just be a one and done thing.   I know the ones you get randomly each day seem to be.

Beastie Boys - clearly can't happen with the full crew anymore, and I would have preferred to see them 20 years ago
Tom Waits - still a small chance, but he's getting old and his concerts sell out immediately
Tool - never had a chance to get tickets, hopefully after their new album

Beastie Boys would probably be my number one answer as well.  I've seen Tool and they were great.

True, but in most RPGs you could get there when you get there and that'd be just fine.  Go solving side quests, level up your characters, etc.  Now we are forced to say "Well, I only have an hour so I better run and be past that gate before it closes or I can't access that area.  Oh shit, but that means I can't do this other thing till tomorrow".  It's arbitrary and that's what bugs me.

Funny, because this is actually one of the things I like about this game.  You have to make decisions about what you can do and how much time it will take.  I'm on Day 3 right now and really loving the game.  I haven't had any issues so far remembering where people are, but that was just the first city.  On Day 3, I went to the Wildlands, so we'll see how much more complex things get, but having a schedule is one of the things I adored about Majora's Mask.

I've read complaints from other people that the quests don't have markers (though you can make your own on the map) and yet you get tons of people complaining that games today hold your hand too much.  I'm of the camp that likes to see exploration left up to the player, just like in the old Final Fantasy days.  It's one of the reasons I love the Souls games so much.  I've been enjoying the game a great deal so far.  We'll see how it goes, though.

I'm wondering if they really did sneak in some voice recognition improvements as rumored. My "Xbox On" , which worked maybe 20% of the time before, has worked like a champ since the update.

I felt like it has been better.  It pretty much never listened to my daughter and it seems to respond to her now on all commands, not just turning it on.  That being said, I had some issues with it earlier, but I decided to recalibrate with whatever they might have changed to see if that improves things.

I love Ringabel's voice, though!

So, I've reached that dreaded point where I want to be every job, but I can't.  I had just settled on:

Agnes: Sword Fencer/White Mage
Tiz: Ranger/Thief
Edea: Knight/Sword Fencer
Ringabel: Time Mage/Black Mage

But I just got Summoner (and have three summons) and Red Mage.  Now I'm thinking:

Agnes: Red Mage/Something Else (I figure if I can get my Black and White Mage stuff to one person, that is great)
Tiz: Ranger/Thied (Probably will keep this)
Edea: Knight/Sword Fencer (until I get Valkyrie or something else)
Ringabel: Summoner/Time Mage


This will likely change when I get the next jobs.  Too many choices!

Oh, and forgot to mention that I would love to get someone in Merchant because I like the idea of it.

Also, Gratch, I am with you in that once I pick the game up, I have a real hard time putting it down.

Lol, you are?  nifty!   You have to keep track of which gate is open and when.  For instance, to get the the Warrens (aka slums) they are only open between midnight and 6am.  After that they close the doors and you can't get there until the next day.  There are only a handful of days to finish the game, so getting there to find a closed gate is just annoying.  

It writes those times on the map.

Edit:  Well, that didn't take long.  I doubt they'll make any of the stretch goals, but they will get funded.  They did mention opening up paypal after the Kickstarter to try to reach some of the stretch goals. 

The problem is the only way I will pay money on this is if they hit the Vita goal.  Would love this on a portable.

I actually bought this on Tuesday and have played a fair bit.  It's a Monster Hunter clone, but they don't have all of the item crafting that you get in that series.  You can craft weapons and armor and stuff from things you get from monsters.  What it does have, though, are Mitamas, which are Japanese spirits that you can attach to your weapon and that give you abilities and boosts.  I've been enjoying it.  The graphics are very nice, but not so sure about the online part as I've had some bad luck with having groups stay connected.  Did manage to get some time in, though, and it was fun playing with others.

Edit - I put my Vita's IP in my router's DMZ and it seems to have fixed things.  I think the issue is that the Vita and PS3 have the same ports you have to open and I am already forwarding those ports to my PS3 IP address.  After I made the move, it works great now.  I'd never really played anything online with the Vita before.
