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.

Well I just picked up Blue Dragon and I don't know if its because I downloaded all the extra content from the Hong Kong account, but I have all the difficulty options which are:

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.

This is a maybe for me since all I have been using my PS3 for is backward compatibility.  I still have to get my friends list up and running.

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 should've pre-ordered this game in hindsight.  I live in San Jose, CA and I couldn't find a copy within 15 miles!! I got lucky today since an employee at Gamestop sold me a pre-ordered copy that no one picked up.

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.

Finishing a great series is always a little depressing for me.  Whether its a great movie series, books, and especially videogames does this to me.

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.

Hopefully we will get more traffic when the Red pack goes freebie. 

And when we play game mode "Assassination", and Harkonis ends up being the VIP with a glock, I will have my revenge.....oh yes.....

Hey DarkEL! I enlisted in '93 and got out in '04 after two tours in the great beach with no water.  Jesus, you were in Crypto? Smart guy. I came in open contract and landed the 0331 heavy gunner.  Got injured during my last tour and promptly fell in love with video games during rehab and the rest is history.

Ex-Marines are usually classified as dead marines.  So that would make me a former Marine.....but one of the Marine Corps' motto is, "Once a Marine, always a Marine" so.....

Eh whatever, Semper Fi!!!
