I agree with your assessment about the gameplay.  I doubt it was ever intended to be more than second place to the storyline and characters.  It wasn't a problem for me, because I died over and over and came close to snapping my disk in half.  What you're asking for probably would have made it impossible for me to complete the game, turn-based or no, so I can't say I'm enthusiastic about the idea.

The sort of balancing you're talking about is generally more supported in games designed for and revolving around multiplayer.  For ball-busting AI, I hear the X-COM remake suffices.  In fact, that's the game VC was most often compared to when it came out.

Heh, well I guess it's good to know I'm not going insane as far as my thoughts go. ^^

Maybe I'll check out some gameplay vids of XCOM though, to see if it's more up my alley. I remember a friend who loved the series, but I didn't get into it at the time.

While I think the Lexus LFA only looks its best when it's in its usual snow white color, I thought this was a neat design.

Just finished the first story (Ceodore's) in FF4 The After Years. It took me a long time to get through Mist Cave. Both the Interlude and Ceodore's story ended kind of abruptly. I hope the other stories are good.

Playing Zero Escape: Virtue's Last Reward.  I had to pick up a Vita first, but it was worth it.  I don't think I'm going to be sleeping very much over the next couple of days.

edit: finished it this morning, though I had to cheat and FAQ through some of the nastier puzzles.  That was a total mindfuck. @_@

Got my Ys Celceta no Jukai Platinum on Sunday.  ;D


Since then, I've just been playing the hell out of Liberation Maiden. Just going to switch between Score Attacking this game, and replaying Ace Attorney 1, until my copy of Zero no Kiseki Evolution arrives.

Also fighting my urges to buy Ragnarok Odyssey. :P

Holy crap, that's out now?!? I've been waiting for years!

... Still would rather play as Spiritia, but eh.

Disappoint in the bosses, they are all the same as the first game except some Dolis Warmind who is replacing Freudia since you use her :<
I don't remember noticing many tributes in the first game, but here there's a ghost & goblins with one of the mid bosses.

They're the same, but do they at least have different patterns? And does Freudia get different stuff than Spiritia did?

If the answer to both are no... well, I'll still get the game sometime, who am I kidding.

I don't remember the patterns from the first game but the difficulty seems to be swapped. The easiest bosses from the first are the hardest here and the hardest the easiest. Libea is though now D:
And overall stages are also easier from what I can remember, may have to replay the first game to compare but I didn't have much trouble with most of the stages. Well from the main 8 bosses, there are some more which I haven't played yet.
Freudia doesn't have the typical megaman canon that shoots one bullet and charges if you keep pressing attack, she keeps shooting ice lances if you hold the attack button also her own weapon has a weapon bar that depletes just like any ability you adquire so you can't spam your main attack.
That said you'll be laughing at the stages and how they parody old games, they're all like a tribute to different games.

I guess I'll have to see where I can get the game from sometime, though it's like all the groups I'm watching will come out with their games in like... years. Looking at the progress of some of the groups I kinda idly watch, I came up with this.

Holy hell. In the meantime, I'm playing my friend's copy of Oboro Muramasa on his Wii since he's out on vacation. Here's hoping I can beat it before he gets back. ^^

Casually replaying .flow and getting started on Yume 2kki. I love me some Yume Nikki spinoffs.
