2681  Gaming / Multiplayer Madness (MMO or otherwise) / Re: Will you be my Halo 3 buddy/buddies? on: September 22, 2007, 05:48:47 PM
Friday night Multiplayer 9/28? In my humble opinion the GamingTrend community is the best for MP and Co-op play. Everyone is really cool and just here for fun. 

Heck, I even enjoy it when I constantly get pwned by papasmurff, Harkonis, and PeteRock.

Got my pre-order and from what I can see, no difficulty option but the game comes with a dual language option (English or Japanese).  Oh well, it sure is pretty  icon_smile  Impressions a bit later, but so far so good.

Hey Ron, I'm pretty much done with this game as well. Can ya give me some help/pointers on beating the last boss? Thanks  icon_wink

I'm a sucker for these games, so I'll be picking this one up on release day  nod

After spending probably too much time with Blue Dragon, I think 20-30 hour RPG will be a nice change of pace.
2686  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Best Game Ever Thread on: September 11, 2007, 01:17:23 PM
My picks are:

Shadowrun for the Sega Genesis




and Star Control 2

Finished it! Had a good time... I'll give more thoughts later through. Just wanted to let you know that I did manage to finish with about 90 achievement points... You don't even get any for beating the game :-p. Despite that I enjoyed it though. Not sure I have the drive to load a save point and play another 20 hours with no real point other than to try to get some of the achievements. In the end I think my characters were in the low 50s for level and I had about 43 hours (+ a couple from redos). Overall I'd give it a 8.0 or so. Enjoyed it, and I played through, but I wasn't blown away.

Jesus, finally finished it.  29 out of of 43 achievements for a total of 525 points  icon_confused    Total Time: 78 hours  icon_eek     My party was around in the low 70's. 

Nice, solid game.  Now I can move on....

Just a quick update, I'm still on disc 2 (near the end) and I'm already clocking in around 50+ hours, party is around level 42-44 playing on Hard mode.  If anyone just started playing hard mode, you  really need to start to specialize you party right away...like a balanced mmo party.  For example I have 2 tanks in the front row and the last 3 are healer, damage caster, and ninja/support.

Even though I own a PS3 and 360, I hope that Microsoft doesn't ignore the RPG market like it "mostly" did with the original XBOX.  I know there are some great upcoming RPG/titles coming out, but beyond that, I don't know of any.  I hope some new RPG franchises makes its way to the box.
2691  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Blue Dragon Getting Some Poor Reviews on: September 05, 2007, 02:55:11 AM
Well for me I'm on disc 2 (maybe halfway through) and I have logged in about 40 hours give or take and hour or so.  I'm playing on the hard difficulty and I do have to grind just a little bit.

Well about 4 hours in on hard, and it's just that.  The boss fights right now are really hard.  I'm working my way through them, but it almost has me wanting to start over on normal before i get too far.  Anyone else playing on hard have any impressions on the combat.  I will admit I am having to really pay attention to my skills inorder to win.

Well, I'm almost 16 hours in on hard difficulty, and the boss battles, hell even the normal mobs are hard hard hard! I die so much during boss fights (I have to buy a lot of revives).  So if that kind of play style isn't your cup of tea, maybe a restart is in order.  Oh and yeah, I'm still having a great time.

At first I thought combat was going to be lame, but the more levels I get, and the more skills I unlock, the more fun it becomes.  There is actually quite a bit of strategy involved, which is great.  Now if only the game were more difficult, so the strategy actually meant something.

Edit:  Took out my complaining about how the game is way too easy.  I'll just restart it when the patch comes out in the US.  Love the game other than that.


I'm about 14 hours in with my characters around level 25-26 on hard difficulty and I'm having a great time.  Sometimes during the boss battles and the harder mobs it gets really challenging, but not impossible, with the hard download.

as i am half way through the game i will wait and hope it appears on our shores....the shuffle dungeon is 400points so i wont be able to download that from a foriegn account anyhow

I was able to buy the dungeon and item pack with a redeem code.  The dungeon description says 30 new items, 10 new bosses, but I need to be at least level 50! So I guess I won't be able to try out the new content in a while. 

I hope people disappointed with the easy difficulty downloads the Hong Kong content. 
So you definitely recommend experienced RPGers play on hard right? havent started yet.

Yes, in my opinion experienced RPGer's start on hard.  Especially in my case where I'm used to Persona 3 type difficulty. 

Oh and to sign up a Hong Kong account:

Sign out of current account

Select Join Xbox Live

Enter new gamertag, select new region (HONG KONG!)

going to need to input another email address, fake home address, fake phone number etc etc...

after all that just go to the games download section tab in the Hong Kong account, Find blue dragon, download the difficulty pack

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?

There is no doubt that we will get the dungeon and difficulty downloads, the question is when.  There isn't an option to change difficulty mid-game, only the voiced language options.

I'm glad I created a hong kong account to get the downloads, it is relatively painless. And just for giggles I bought the new dungeon and item/treasure pack and they work in the U.S. version.
2697  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Blue Dragon Getting Some Poor Reviews on: August 29, 2007, 09:42:27 PM
Well just for the hell of it, I played an hour on normal difficulty and another hour on hard difficulty so take my early difficulty impressions with a grain of salt.  As it stands for me right now, playing in normal difficulty is really way too easy just like some/most of the reviews have stated.  I can spam the attack button during battles and not worry about getting hit much or killed.  I never had to use any healing items.  So if some people out there just play RPG's for the story, this is your difficulty.

Hard mode,  now this is the one for me and hits that challenging sweet spot.  During my brief paying period, I've already had to change formations, used many attack/status/healing items, and actually pay attention during my battles in order to survive.

Thats it so far, now back to Blue Dragon. 

P.S. English Voice Talent seems solid as well so far, even though I prefer Japanese with subtitles.

Normal
Hard
Impossible.

Anyways, I'm going to start in Hard mode.

NIiiiiiice!! Thats what i wanted to hear-Kato, can you please come back after an hour or two of play and report on hard mode so we have an idea what to start with? reports are still that the game is just too easy in normal.

Yeah sure thing. I'm only 15 minutes in and I'll report back later on the difficulty modes.

Well I'm picking up my pre-order of Blue Dragon today and I created a Hong Kong account to see if the difficulty download option will work with my U.S. copy.  The available downloads for the Hong Kong account are the Ultra Hard Mode, Shuffle Dungeon for 400 points, and some sort of equipment/item pack worth 200 points.


is it only ultra hard mode?....hmm,i want the game harder,but i dont wanna be kicking the cat when i die every 5 minutes


and i wonder what the item pack thing is


Actually the download is called "Ultra Hard Mode" but in fact it is 3 difficulty levels which are "New Game Plus", "Hard Game Mode", and "Impossible Game Mode".

New Game Plus: Start a new game using a saved game file near the end of the game (while carrying over stats)

Hard game mode: An option when starting a new game thats twice as hard as normal mode

Impossible Game Mode: Ultimate Difficulty that should be played at level 50 or higher.

The item pack thingy is called "6 Treasures - Package of 6 handy items".  Not sure if these items are to be bought, found, quested for.

I guess that's another reason I don't like the "fight at the end" concept.  The expert doing the fight doesn't really want to get hurt or injured in what is essentially a meaningless fight, and isn't going to kick the living shit out of either of the hosts.

I agree with you on that point, however in the Escrima (spelling?) episode, I thought the Escrima champ was fighting pretty hard against the host.

Good communication goes a long way.  We were playing Streets 3v3 against Harkonis and we won almost every time.  I forget who was playing "Commander" but he had 0 kills but was key to our victory.

My suggestion would be to avoid conquest mode with 3v3.  With 3 capture points it mostly becomes a 1v1 match with little teamwork.

Yeah that was Jarrodhk doing the recon and commander work while Skystride and I were doing the shooting.  Great teamwork on that game.  Thats what I love so much about R6.  Even as good as Harkonis is, with a little teamwork we can take him down!  icon_biggrin

Harkonis: No need to Handicap yourself man.  It's great playing with you or against you because either way I get better every time we play.

PapaSmurf: Usually when we play I end up on your team, but when I play on the opposite team you seem to have my number just like Harkonis  icon_frown Oh well its all in good fun.
