Return of the Gangsta Bear!
Apr 26th 2019 at 9:04:28 AM

So, I just restarted Breath Of Fire 2 on my Wii U.

I believe I'd just gotten Sten the last time I was playing, so I got a ways to go, but hopefully I can get a bit farther this time.

Just going to get Mina's cat from the Harpies, but I remember that the levels of enemies was high, so I'm doing a bit of Level Grinding before hand. Any advice on where I should be?

Once again, wokka wokka!

Phew. Did not grind enough and kept getting stomped by enemies.

Fortunately, I realized that water fountain near the earlier part of the level could restore health, and I eventually got myself high enough to get past the three harpies.

Now I've got Suzy, Bow is level 8, and Ryu is 7. Both know Cure 1, and I'm high levelled enough that I shouldn't have to worry about enemies on the way back doing too much damage. I feel like I forgot something though.

Edit: Also, what do you buy to restore MP?

Bah.

I'm at Coursair, and I decided to do a little grinding to get new armour...

...but I got killed by those damn plants that put you to sleep. I'm at level 8, but I lost a good half the money I had and I didn't save before hand (I had been before, but I thought I was at the point where I didn't have to worry about being killed in battle).

So yeah, now I gotta start all over again on money grinding.sad

Phew. So I took care of the business at Coursair, then took care of the business with the Joker gang.

So now I have Ryu Katt and Nina, and am heading towards Windia, where I'll get Sten. That'll bring me back to around where I was the last time I was playing.

Things are much easier once you have more than two party members, I'll say this much.

Ryu and Katt are at level 11, while Nina is Level 8 (or was it 9). I do look forward to having better heals and being able to save up for better AP restoration. I picked up a bit, but it'll be nice when I have a bit of a surplus.

Alright. I'm in Windia and I have Sten. Right now, I'm cash grinding to get everyone the latest weapons and armour.

It's slow going, namely due to it taking a while to build up cash, and said armour and weapons costing a lot.

Once I'm done with that, I'll continue on with the story.

Still playing BOF2.

Just took care of the monsters in the Well with Ray's help. Then went back to Bow's hiding spot. Now Ray is offering to teach one person Renew (since I saved all the people in the well, though apparently Cure 2 is better).

I've looked around and seen that Nina or Sten are the best choices (with Nina apparently edging Sten out), but I wanted to see what you guys thought (that is, if anyone even says anything, since I don't think anyone has commented on my play through so far).

I'll probably go with Nina, though Sten is faster (right now, only Katt beats him out in speed), so if I really want to use him as a healer, he'd be guaranteed to get it off quickly.

So in my continued play through of BOF2, I gave Nina Renew.

I got the dragon puppy forms (and I only have enough MP to change once...plus I here they aren't actually elemental due to a glitchsad) and am now trying to choose a Carpenter for our new fusion friends.

Any advice? Any at all?

Iím interested in Breath of Fire but I have never played

The ordinary carpenter can cook you things from your inventory for free consumables and the 2nd carpenter has a minigame that can win you gear.

The 3rd one is mostly only for flavor.

So that would be the dude in the first house (ordinary carpenter) and the dude in the tree house (second Carpenter).

....Any chance I might be able to get the two I don't choose later on? I'll probably go with normal house dude for now, but I'd like to know.

Also, any advice on hunting? It's stupidly hard to line them up for Katt's stick or Bow's crossbow when they move around as much and as fast as they tend to.

Tokyo Xanadu eX+ is on sale for 80% off on Steam right now if anyone is interested

I was thinking about getting it myself, but I do have a bunch of JRP Gs on my to play list including Cold Steel 1 + 2, so I think I'll hold off on purchasing, since if its dropped this cheap, I'd think it will again before I get around to playing it.

So for you guys who noticed I bumped up the Wii U thread, my play through of Breath of Fire 2 is on hold until I figure out why my gamepad is no longer working.

Oh boy, in between my current Hyrule Warriors obsession I'm playing Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology edition. I'm starting with the base edition; being unfamiliar with the original story. (I had the first version of the game, but didn't get very far into it.)

Guess I'll report on my progress here.

Edit: Rosch STILL looks like he came out of a hair product commercial. His flowing locks are gorgeous. XD

I heard so much good things about Radiant Historia, that as soon as the remake was announced, I ordered.

May 8th 2019 at 4:45:50 PM

I like RH a lot, but I prefer the original for the art style and not tying up the loose ends as completely as the remake does. The remake has a true final boss be behind everything and I felt it kinda cheapened the original game's final boss/true ending, especially the message, as well as how it was in one of the sidequests that the heroes enabled someone else to find a key to save the world.

Remakes with blatant sequel hooks that make the original ending a downer or not quite saved enough annoy me, but remakes where everything is so tied up there can't be a sequel in the future annoy me too XD; I really hope the Link's Awakening remake doesn't change the ending.

I grabbed it mainly because of how often I'd seen it mentioned around this wiki. Also the demo was extremely fun to play.

I'm quite glad I did, since its massively shot up in price.

Although I think you can get it digitally, which is very handy. I didn't realize how handy it would be at keeping prices of 3DS games from ballooning out when out of print. With this game the very limited run in Australia means physical is still expensive, but the option for digital is still there.

I lucked out and got the last copy they had. Apparently it was still the release copy, so I got the sticker sheet and art book and box to go with it. Which is nice, because the box has very nice art. To bad I don't really have a way to display it, since storage is at something of a premium in the space I have.

Anyway, I really like the voice acting in this, but it gets a little silly when the main characters are fully voiced and then the minor characters just give you a grunt.

So, after finishing Parasite Eve's 1 and 2 I finally found myself wondering something:

...why did Aya have her gun on her when he was off duty? Are New York cops allowed to do that?

Once again, wokka wokka!
May 13th 2019 at 9:59:29 PM

Yep.

It's pretty common for police officers to carry their side arms with them at all times, even off duty.

Yeesh.

Well, it worked out in universe, but considering the shit that's been going on in real life in the past few years, that's not a comforting thought.

Cops in America are pretty much required to have concealed carry licenses, I think. And concealed carry licenses aren't restricted to cops, so basically, yeah, a lot of people are going around with a side arm. That said, there's lots of places that don't allow fire arms in the building. I work at one of them, and Joe Random can't come in with a weapon. Cops are the exception, but they have to be verified by one of the cops assigned to work at the building as a security check.

So, yeah, a cop having a gun on them when off duty is not an immersion breaker.

Looking back, considering the real life basis of the story, Aya carrying a gun on her person due to being a cop was probably a convenient moment where reality coincided with the direction of the story.

Ok, so I'm not very far into it, but I'm at the point where I have to decide to join Rosch or not. I think joining Rosch is the right decision at this juncture? I'm pretty sure we're supposed to explore every possibility anyway to figure it all out. I think staying with Heiss is supposed to be the thing you do second. I'm not entirely sure how progression works in this game.
