Tales of the Abyss [1]

Uh… late update much?

Okay, now I’ve already started this cool game several months ago, well, actually in late 2005, but anyway, that aside, I went back to playing it again. I’ve overlevelled a bit too much so right now I’m doing the sidequests I can do at the moment before proceeding onwards to Velkende and after that to the Meggiora Plateau or whatever it was called. I’ve defeated the second Sword Dancer easily. I also forgot to lens Synch earlier, but… bah. I can’t really do much about that… nyah. There’s really not a lot to talk about gameplay wise, since I haven’t really done much special, but there’s a lot of plot-related stuff I COULD talk about…. but that’s to come another time. I don’t have much time to spare at the moment. Cyz~

Ar Tonelico [1]

Officially le strange. Melodrama ensues within the first 10 minutes of gameplay. Mystery also ensues within the subsequent 15 minutes of gameplay. As they would all say, “Who is this Oriko and why does she deny the encounter she had with the main lead about 5 minutes ago?” but then again, with the presence of a creepy-ass knight dude who seems to care overexcessively about her, why wouldn’t she? “Are you scared?” my damn ass! :/ Oh yeah, I forgot the signs of abuse within the first 2 minutes of entering the first town. Must be some excuse for those damn Elenia knights or whatever they call them to come along and save the day. And who do we see? That Oriko, after the abusive dude runs away. I hate her already. Oh and the victim in question chased after the abuser, and it did NOT look at ALL like some attempt at retribution. This game whacks me out already. At least Shureria has an awesome getup AND sounds badass to boot. I guess she’s the only redeeming factor. So far. Oh yeah, and the main lead isn’t as dumb as he looks. Okay, maybe he is, rushing out to say “Oh are you that person blahblah” in FRONT of the damn guys who were with Oriko a couple of minutes ago. Sheesh, he could at least not seem “Oh, I think it’ll be a good idea to get her attention in front of 4 damn people who are already friends with her, ignoring the fact they could kick my ass if I pissed them off.”

Stupid Raina. :x

New RPGs Purchased [1]

I have purchased 3 new RPGs. It has occured to me that all of those RPG happen to be published by NIS America, but… It’s really kind of freaky when you think about it. Anyway, they are: Disgaea 2, Ar Tonelico and Atelier Iris 2: Azoth of Destiny. I didn’t opt on getting Izumo 2 and Atelier Iris: Grand Fantasm but… I was kinda scared that I’d be getting too many. Disgaea 2 and Ar Tonelico are in Japanese (obviously) and Atelier Iris 2 is in English. Haha, I can’t wait to be getting around to playing Disgaea 2. Well, this means I won’t be updating Disgaea 1 that much anymore…

Suikoden V [2]

Still in the training stages, I’ve already finished up with quite a few SoDs, as well as getting their epics to the current max (which is A rank magic, due to my Elementary Magic book). Average for current party I’d gauge is around ~49, give or take one or two levels. The enemies become far too easy now, but it’s annoying to find a good SP farming spot. I’ve almost hit the 10 million potch mark. I should be thankful that Prosperity Orbs stack!

Disgaea [1]

I just re-started Disgaea from a fresh file, and I’m currently on Episode 3, just finished the last area for Episode 2. Which was unusually hard, but that was because when I played it last time I had stronger units/people (average now is around ~8, before it was ~11) and I bothered to get a Star Mage and I had a gun-toting Green Mage who kicked much ass. But now I’m being a bit more realistic with my playthrough though getting a gun-using mage/cleric would be fun. Or a swordgirl. Oh wait, that’s what my warrior is for. Yes, I use Disgaea until I get Disgaea 2… :x

Makai Kingdom [1]

On my 6th runthrough! Of Makai Kingdom! No, seriously. I was bored, so that’s why I played it and beat it 5 times. Each with new game+ files… So yeah. Carry over levels, items, and all that. But it’s annoying to go through the storyline. I’m doing it mainly to get the remaining unlockables – Pram, Alexander, and the battleship Yoshitsuna. Highest levelled unit is a Samura Legend at level 1102. I wish I could get pictures. When I do, I’ll show them off and stuff. I’m training weapon levels… and Zetta kicks ass with a beam saber. Omega Force deals at least 20k and over without buffs. So that’s pretty interesting to me. But my Samurai still pwnz in the end. 30k+ with Storm Blade. Apparently Storm Blade does more output damage than Rolling Thunder does despite Rolling Thunder being a supposedly stronger attack. Then again her Katana is at level 22…

Suikoden V [1]

I’ve already started on this game several weeks ago but I still find it worthy to be posting some stuff here. Note that there will not be ANY pictures until I get off my lazy ass and install the software before actually taking the pictures and then uploading them. Alright, so let’s see.

I’ve already tackled through half-way of the game and have reached the next “free-point” of sorts where I have recruited all of the possible SoDs until this point in the game. I’ve also decided on training all my fighter SoDs until their skills have reached their peak (ie. until I can no longer raise the rank). I’ve finished quite a few, but with the advent of more SoDs joining my ranks I have to keep them up to shape. Yes, that means I’ve gotten the extension to my castle. Strangely enough, L range weapons have a L12 attack of 185, which is 5 higher than M or S range… I find that kind of strange. But that will be for another time. So at the moment, I’m in my training stages… I’ll post again whenever I can.
