The Official JRPG Thread (aka Japanese Role Playing Games) - Page 19

post #271 of 707

Sadly I never beat any FF games... SOMETHING always happens to the system/console. It's like it's fated to stop working when I reach X point in the game.

 

Materia system was pretty complicated compared to Draw system, but darn is Draw a pain.

The easiest solutions were
Everyone having:
All+Cure
Enemy Skill
HP Plus (multiple ones), MP plus
Then certain party members with:
Steal
Manipulate (to get your Enemy Skills)
All-Offensive Magic (Fire, etc) until you have the AOE Enemy Skill attacks
One summon each (not necessary)
The only offensive materia you really need is Enemy Skill. You nab Aqualung, Beta, Trine, early enough, and they will kill pretty much anything. Then you have Big guard, and a whole bunch of other fantastic defensive spells. Enemy Skill is the best materia in the game, assuming you know where to get your skills. You get two Enemy Skill materias early enough, and they should always be equipped.
If you use Tifa, set her up with Cover+Counter, and counter+2x/4x cute (later on in the game). Since her final weapon's damage relies on how high her limit break gauge is, NEVER use the Atk command or Limit Break with her (which isn't exactly useful to begin with). With multiple counters and 2x/4x hit, she'll be doing 9999x4 damage every time she covers someone and counters. She breaks the game. XD
Works for other characters, but Tifa is the easiest guaranteed 9999 with each hit and her Limit break maxed. I basically use her for magic/defense, whenever she's not destroying everything with her counters.
Sorry. I love FFVII. I've played it easily over 15 times.
Is it the best game? No. But it's my favorite overall in terms of mythology and characters.

 

Oh crap do I don't understand much of what you are saying. I actually stopped halfway of the game (I thing some part in disc 2, not sure) LOL

 

Not sure when I'll be able to continue/restart playing it since I've got Tales of Graces F, ICO/Shadow of Colossus, and Valkyria Chronicles coming in XD

 

@Kalbee, The only FF game I ever finished was FFX, FF13m FF13-2 and Crisis Core...That's really a sad list...

post #273 of 707

Well, I didn't beat any of em... though I did see a few endings, like 7 and 8.

 

Oh actually I did beat FFTA... THATS IT! lol. I never managed to beat the first stage of FFT either.

FFTA was for the GBA right? I had to use an emulator to play that. And I did finished that too lol

post #275 of 707

Yup, emulator for me too. Only had the original gameboy at the time hehe.

I think it was probably the easiest FF game ever made.

post #276 of 707

Really? That game was what I hate the most especially when I miss my attacks. Probably not my kind of genre. Didn't even finished Disgaea, except for the first game

Haha, well, Disgaea... Finishing the storyline is one simple task... beating the whole extra is quite a feat in itself.

I never got THAT far, beat the storyline a few times with different endings... that's about it? Still can't manage to do all the other worlds.

 

Disgaea 2 I also just beat storyline. Disgaea 3 was weird so I sold the game (huge waste of money, couldn't sell back for much T-T). Didn't get Disgaea 4, probably should?

D1 was still my fav, and I love tactical RPGs.

That game is insane... max lvl was like what? 9999lvl? Then you can reincarnate into lvl1 again and go all the way to lvl9999 AGAIN...Seriously, that game needs a lot of trophies...

Different endings? It has many endings? That's actually news to me LOL. I only saw when Laharl defeated the arcangel and then got reincarnated dood... And never touched it again

 

I think D2 was acceptable since the MC was kinda cool and all. And Laharl's appearance too. I wonder how big is that game really...

Tactical...not my genre...

 

Which reminds me, I need to tr that PSP game with that 40 endings and also dating sim system (from what I read in Kotaku). Not sure about the name though

post #279 of 707

you know what i hate about rpgs, investing like 40 hours into them and then for whatever reason taking a break, coming back like 3 months later and you forgot how to play or where to go and wtf was happening in the story :(

 

 

i cant even tell you how many rpgs i never finished when i was only like 4 hours from beating the game, never beat final fantasy x, vagrant story or persona 2 & 3 because of this, and thats just off the top of my head

If it was me, I'd play all over again. If there was any rare items, I'm sure to forget that I even had one. Thus It isn't a problem for me

 

Anyway, now playing : Growlanser - Wayfarer of Time

That's why I focus on one rpg at a time, and try to finish them relatively quickly.

I'm currently trying to play Kingdom Hearts: Dream Drop Distcance, but I'm turned off by the mess of things they have us doing. From the bullsh*t monster raising, to the drop system that switches the characters, etc. I'm no longer a fan of Kingdom Hearts at this point.

do people really like level grinding in jrpgs? i never understood how games like monster hunter are so popular, only games i've ever enjoyed grinding in were star ocean 2, legend of legaia maybe and chrono trigger, if srpgs count i pretty much obliterated final fantasy tactics lol

 

 

wierdly enough, the one game you SHOULDN'T grind in, final fantasy 8, you can pretty much break beyond repair by leveling squall and only squall by about 15 or 20 levels in the early game. fighting that t rex thing with quistis in the garden first chance you get pretty much lets you breeze through the game, killed omega weapon and esther in the final fight both in like 30 seconds or less

post #284 of 707
Grinding is one thing... Grinding by consuming items is a whole other level of pain...!!
I can think of Odin Sphere and specially Zweii at this point... Wasn't able to muster the patience to farm for food items, make better food items out of them and eat a bunch for leveling up.
post #285 of 707

Why we grind? LOOK AT THOSE PRETTY NUMBERS!!!!

It's psychological effect from seeing those big numbers that makes me I want a bigger damage points. I think Kotaku has an article on this. Look it up

 

Hopefully a KH bundle HD in the PS3 will be released at some point. Never finished the first one since it won't accept PS1 dualshock controller and everytime I bought PS2 dualshock, it just messes up quickly

 

Just got my Tales of Graces F (day 1 bundle) + Valkyria Chronicles + Ico&Shadow of Colossus

 

Can't wait for my holidays! 3 WEEKS OF RPGs GALORE!

 

Anyone here play Growlanser Wayfarer of Time? I'm hooked! First time that I played all day long. I played even when my PSP was recharging LOL
