EWatLO must be a decent sized RPG. the few i'm listening to now sound real...peaceful too though i'm sure not all of it is...oh! here we go, Brave Way sounds more like a theme for a major event. yet it still has a similar feel to the others...

It's huge. It basically set my standards for an epic JRPG. It also needs to be huge, since items age as you play depending on game/real time. Bamboo shoots that heal become sticks you hit the enemy with. Photos (the main way to get money) develop (you have a fantasy equivalent of a Polaroid camera). Sake becomes vinegar. Bananas go from green to ripe to rotten.

looks like 5 of the videos in that playlist were deleted and this one (violent storm) must be a battle theme. pretty good one too, reminds me of star ocean's battle themes somewhat. or perhaps something from one of Gust's Atelier games. think i'll go ahead and download that one. :) violent storm...with a name like that it must be a nice battle when you first hear that theme.

now for origins...Valedictory Elegy, hello star ocean though this is less electronic sounding. this one has some big similarities to a few star ocean battle themes. but unlike those it's got very little, if any, electronic instruments to it. gives it a bit of a different feel this way.

Believe it or not, that's the music for an ordinary battle. The one for EWatLO is The True Mirror, which is on the soundtrack for both. I won't spoil anything, but it's the theme of a character you never see, but know the most, and while that character is your enemy, in 20 years they will be on your side.

awww... gamecube games? i can't play them even if i wanted to then. no gamecube and my wii is long gone since it broke and started suffering severe overheating issues. well, at least theres the good music and i can always watch let's plays of them.

There's a lot to miss in both. In Origins, Savyna's reason for showing up in EWatLO can be accidentally skipped by having her be somewhere else (I can't say why). There's also the matter of who the infant is at the end of Origins. Fans have argued whether it's Kalas due to one wing, or Melodia due to Sagi and Milliarde not being present in EWatLO and being close friends with Geldoblame.

One thing you'll like about EWatLO, the cliche of age in JRPG being stuck with 20-somethings or teenagers who are unphased by being soldiers is gone. The 36-year-old is physically the strongest (and most of that comes from being a fisherman/bouncer), and the 14-year-old is physically weak enough that their magic is the only reason they can fight at all (though living in a place where the air is dangerous without a mask filter is part of that). Lyude shows what being a child soldier does to people, as do Skeed and Valee (and all three treat it differently, with one being too scared to act against things he knows is wrong, Valee seeing it as consequence-free leverage against people stupid enough not to fight back, and Skeed just controlling Lyude because it's a moment where he gets to be in control of something). Not much to say about Xelha. Not much I'm allowed to say about Kalas.

Also, I won't say why, but there is a reason you have the option to be a boy or girl in EWatLO but not Origins.

Nintendo offering Virtual Console channels for their own games isn't piracy. You're still paying for the game.

I'm talking about the Wii homebrew called Nintendont, the Wii U doesn't have gamecube Virtual console. If you were to play gamecube games on your Wii U I feel like the Smash 4 Gamecube adapter or a Mayflash Gamecube adapter would be best since Nintendont works with non Wii controllers. I mention piracy because Nintendont loads dumped Gamecube games perfectly, or at least almost perfectly.

bayen kaitos info

so not only are those some really long games but they also make use of the consoles system clock in a way you rarely ever seen in a RPG. that sounds VERY impressive for the time they came out.

i've seen aspects of that time system in other games, sure, but not to such an extent. sure, theres plenty of games like Tales where you have certain items that will regrow in real time (herbs). in others such as skyrim it would be tied to respawning enemies and harvest points around the world (same as with tales basically). not sure if i've seen any that have items which grow into weapons though (you find a living weapon that grows like that...man, let that thing become ancient. it'd probably grow into something legendary.). i think i've seen some where the characters age like this...maybe? might not have been tied to the system clock though.

but i've never played any where the entire games time, growth, aging, etc. is ALL tied to the system clock. it's usually just 1-3 aspects of the game, not the whole in-game world.

i wonder if that affects the final boss of those games in some way such as making them easier or harder.

and while i'm here, i think i'll just go ahead and make that list i spoke of in my last post. 20 areas with 20 treasures...wonder how many are references to other bamco games and the main Tales world as a whole.

▼ expedition areas & treasures

Leymon Sea - Red Jeweled Pendant
Diomell Islands - Twins' Clothes (the clothes 2 master mimics wore)
Exsphere Sea - Yggdrasill Goddess Statue
Astas Sea - Fantastic Landscape (a painting of a tower of rebirth and a castle in the sky)
Kanonno Island - Portrait of the Three Guardians (they look like cats)
Normin Islands - Empyrean Tablet (has 5 symbols on it)
Soma Volcano - Spiria Core Crystal
Barbatos Archipelago - Bone Mask (looks like a helmet made of bone)
Force Islands - Antique Tarot Cards (with the edges honed to sharpness like a blade)
Amarcian Subcontinent - Valkines Cryas Trinket
Crystaliron Sea - Oresoren Brothers (3 dolls of the oresoren brothers)
Centurion Isles - Crimson Crystal
Teepo Island (also known as "Pinkist Isle") - Snow Globe of Growth (has a flower inside that grows as the owner grows)
Kresnik Island (is ruled by cats) - Glowing Gear (a glowing set of gears that somehow move of their own accord)
Krityan Archipelago (tales of vesperia? it mentions a "Vesperian Star" in the description) - Bodhi Blastia Bracelet
Cheagle Island (think i've heard the word cheagle before but i don't remember what they are) - Replica Key of Lorelei
Isles of Noct and Dia (time flows at different speed in different areas) - Moon and Star Earrings
Albane (civilization with the power to transcend time and space) - Cleric's Staff (it's pretty much just that. nothing much to say of this one.)
Swordian Peninsula - Eye of Atomoni Statue (says a large scale version was in a floating city)
and lastly we have Quickie Peninsula - Model Craymel Cage (craymel? first i've heard of this object or whatever it is. looks like a small glass or crystal container with a shard of something reddish orange held inside.)

i wonder how many references there are amongst these. i'd provide pics but i don't feel like scouring google right now, sorry. that tablet has me curious as to what the story behind it is though. i mean, that kind of thing is a pretty interesting find. especially when it's from an ancient civilization.

oh and if anyone wants to see this games intro, check the edit i made before typing this list in the music thread. they did a VERY good job with the animation and it looks awesome. good music too that lines up perfectly with the animation. but...minor spoilers i suppose as it does contain scenes from later in the game. then again, that's not uncommon for games.

Also if you live in Europe, there's actually no other way to play Origins. There is no PAL version and the game is region-locked. That also means you'd need a separate Gamecube specifically to play that one game, which is also against the terms. In other words, because of Nintendo's terms, there is no possible way for anyone in Europe to legally play Baten Kaitos Origins.

that is pure BS and i just hit some MAJOR trouble. Dire Enemy!

Sacred Babboon: 17,417 hp and as a dire enemy it makes all other monsters in the fight invincible until this mighty beast falls! now THIS is a dangerous monster.

edit: O_O holy... get a load of this babboons artes & skills.

Artes:

Rush (stun 20%)
Backflip
Right Chop (25% paralysis)
Impact (Defense down 40% - Defense up, it debuffs the target while buffing him)
Burning Break (Stun 90%)
Deadly Scratch (slow 30%)
Blood Moon (burn 8%)
Dash Uppercut (Defense Down 35%)

i think the %'s are the chance of inflicting those effects.

Skills:

+30% attack when hp is 32% or lower

this. is. BAD!

edit2: yeah...there was no way i was gonna win that fight currently.

there is the Freeloader exclusively for PAL regions that essentially makes your Gamecube region free, although due to how saving Gamecube games and Gamecube memory cards work, you're better off just hardmodding your Gamecube in such a way that it is region free with a modchip called XenoGC, or importing an American Gamecube if you don't want to risk breaking your gamecube.

I always read the terms even back then. Just playing the console while not currently located in the region it was locked to is considered a violation. Technically, if I moved to Europe and brought either the game or the console with me just for my own personal use, it would be a violation of a legal agreement, even though it's my stuff and nobody else is using it.

I always felt the japanese version was just the same as the american version back then only with the difference that the japanese version was in Japanese with no option to change to english. I only discovered this wasn't true when I started hearing things like how Australia and Germany had their games censored for violence, like German Half Life 1 being robots and scientists becoming depressed as the dying animations. the only game I own that isn't my region's funnily enough is Monster Hunter Portable 3rd, a Japan exclusive PS3 remake made as the PSP version of the third generation of the Monster Hunter series.


think i'm almost to the...current main villain of Berseria. i say current because this guy doesn't strike me as final boss material. seriously dark and twisted, yes, but not final boss dark.

this games world is twisted...not to give spoilers but basically this dude has exploited the masses from the start by bringing forth demons into the world then later, using the same ritual, bringing forth the means to defeat those demons. now he sits at the head of a theocratic empire with people worshiping him as a savior.

i've known for a while now that when the truth comes out about what hes done...things are going to come crashing down and the whole world will suffer for it.

or maybe video game logic will take over and magically no one will notice much. it would REALLY suck if they did something like that though as it'd take away a LOT from the drama to come.

walls around a capital city with everyone inside told that said walls are to keep the demons out while those protecting them let demons roam the sewers without the townsfolk knowing? lol that's a sinister plan they're waiting to start. i can easily imagine some terrifying ways that setup could play out and several would lead to mr. villain getting more praise as a hero & savior of the people.

a darkness cloaked in light. that's what this villain is.

oh and, kamimatsu? i am STILL unlocking things! i finished the expedition stuff early this morning before going to bed but this damned shop thing keeps going. lvl 10 now and it keeps giving potentites (those items that unlock features/abilities) and increasingly rare equipment items. i don't know how long this game really is but the shops currently sell rarity 6 while hitting lvl 10 gave me a rarity 17 item. and that 17 item STILL doesn't use the highest crafting materials so even that keeps going higher too!

i'm beginning to wonder when this stuff ends. NG+ perhaps? oh and i even unlocked a new difficulty lvl too earlier. easy/normal/medium/hard and now intense.

if it's in this game i haven't seen it thus far so no synthesis yet.

edit: i'll sit around and exploit the f out of that ex[edition system later to try and finish the shop lvls. you need a lot of high value (i'm talking 30k+) items to throw away to raise that shop lvl beyond 10 without wasting a lot of time grinding and buying/selling junk.

edit2: er...nevermind the expedition thing. >.> that lvl 10 was slow when selling items at 30k+. 11 will be even more so.

AND...taking a peek to see how much i have left to see and unlock... O_O i'm not even halfway through this game. just started part 3 of 6 just now accordinbg to that guide.

▼ yet MORE DLC related BS!

what?! why you greedy... all of the stat and gold/exp boosting DLC is New Game + stuff! you buy it in the NG+ Grade shop.

+1k HP, double grade, double gold, and double or even triple exp payout... granted theres not many of the listed features offered as DLC but even so... to think that people can just throw irl money at the game to get what you otherwise would have to beat the game to EARN. just more reason for me to dislike DLC BS.

moving on... wait...what? this dude lists all the item names but no descriptions or what they unlock or do, no stats for equipment... @guide author: dude...wtf? why even include those sections in your guide if your not going to add any relevant information? item names alone tell us nothing about them.

5:00 let me stop you right there, buddy. i call bullshit on that claim and have seen multiple dumpster dive videos to back up my accusations. it is a known fact that you gamestop employees take a knife or something and scratch discs as well as cutting the cords on controllers and other stuff to damage consoles then throw all that stuff in your dumpsters out back.

how likely is it that those games in question might be laying in a dumpster after a gamestop empoloyee to a knife or something and scratched them.

balance inventory...please...

edit: well, that's interesting. i'm watching the openings of the different Tales games right now and i was right about the treasures being references. costumes in berseria as well.

that skull helmet belonged to a Destiny 2 character. and one of the costume dolls is a main character from the 1st Symphonia game.

Oops.

I mean, I could understand arresting the guy for unlawful loitering, but that's not what he was convicted of. I'm with the leadership's opposition, arresting him for his viewpoints is just a condemnation of religious beliefs.
Yes, I know, this is Russia, not USA, but they have their own constitution which grants a freedom of religion. This law was created in 1997.


furballs_dc said:

from the TASS article: "The video stirred up a controversy among believers while a criminal case was initiated in accordance with the Russian Criminal Code’s articles citing incitement to hatred and enmity, denigrating human dignity, as well as violating the right to freedom of conscience and religion."

o_O what does "denigrating human dignity" mean? and i'm pretty sure playing a video game isn't violating anyone's freedom so that's more of those dumb claims.

"In January 2017, a new charge was brought against Sokolovsky under an article citing illicit trafficking in technical equipment, with the intent of covertly collecting information, since a pen containing a small camera had been found during a search of his apartment."

ok, this just sounds like they were looking for something to punish him for. not actual evidence of a crime. unless owning a pen camera is illegal in russia,

also, exactly how is playing a video game "inciting hatred"? that sounds like a BS claim that could've been pulled up on the spot to worsen the resulting punishment, not an actual crime.

the whole situation sounds pretty stupid imo.

edit: huh, something interesting appeared in my "up next" side bar.

Snip

The game world doesn't age. Just the items. Some get weaker. The prequel, Origins, has a sidequest using the clock where Pac Man catalogues items by moving randomly in the inventory one space every few minutes, blocked by quest items, and eats what he runs into. The cards basically contain the essence of things, so the deck of cards being an inventory is not an abstract representation. It's literally a deck of cards used as storage.

Though there is one character who ages, though the age is just fluff. Their birthday and when it happens is a bit of a spoiler though, so I won't say who.


Coffey25 said:
like German Half Life 1 being robots and scientists becoming depressed as the dying animations.

what? i mean, i know europe has always been pretty big on the "no humans in video games" thing (i first learned of that with the contra games aka Probotector, the european version) and knew that was some form of censorship (i don't remember if i ever found out the exact details behind that form of censorship. i think they still do that to this day actually, though it partly depends on the game...maybe.). but that thing with the death animations sounds really strange.

and still chugging along in ToB here... and STILL unlocking potentite and pieces of the tutorial as well. really now, over halfway through the game and STILL unlocking more stuff...when will it end?

though i guess it's better than one lengthy tutorial or something and as it's simply text pop-up you can just skip it if you want.

edit: 123... lol just how big is the inventory in berseria? i mean, non-consumables don't stack at all and i just counted a total of 123 accessories (been fighting in a combat arena area for grade to train and master equipment skills which also leads to mountains of items piling up.) currently.

if, somehow, you can have 99 of each variation (skill combination) of each equipment piece... well, let's just say that there is over 20 possible skills and you sometimes get 2 skills (at this point in the game at least) on one item so... that is a fuck ton of items.

i don't know the inventory capacity on each category but it's clearly very high. cause so far, i only have a small fraction of these equipment items locked so i don't accidentally sell or dismantle them and it's already a good sized pile.

1 of each characters weapons, 1 of each characters accessories, 3 of each armor piece (3 female characters, 3 male so 3 of each), 6 of each ring, 6 of each boot then 3 of each gender locked footwear.

all of those together make up a fraction of what i'm now carrying and i rarely ever sell them. instead, i enhance/dismantle them for crafting materials.

or "er" if the words are moved around. >.>

oh and i'm past the point where i can speak of berseria's plot without major spoilers now but i can say this much. if you play it to the end...expect things to get majorly fucked up towards the end. i'm talking emotional mind break shit. this kind of stuff is hard to watch anyone go through... it's one of those times when i can say your better off not developing feelings for the protagonist as it'll hurt in the end.

and also...Magilou... pay close attention to what she says and how she talks throughout the game for she tells a lot more than it may seem at first and knows a great deal of about what's really going on. even though she makes me want to call her something less civil than "witch" at times. >.>

oh and yep, you bet i'm still finding potentites to unlock stuff. lol i think the last one is in the post-game dungeon and it does something awesome! it..it...it lets you upgrade your equipment from a mere +9 to the almighty +10!

...yeah...that's all. lol isn't that the Infinity+1 trope? the one where you go through a huge amount of trouble only to find something that is, by that point, worthless? always fun but at least it's not one of those stupid 100-floor dungeons, lazy devs like to put in RPGs as extra content. those are never fun and NEVER worth the trouble except maybe in a MMORPG but i know not of any MMOs featuring such dungeons.

edit: oo...that was good...

symphonia? and 2nd edit just now for something frightening.

glad i didn't have to fight that dragon to the death. that things roar alone could shatter my defense and stun lock (granted it'd just hit once and hold you there but still...not good).

edit: well, survived the hellkite only for the true villain to unleash his power.

Innominat The Suppressor. the nameless empyrean (a god in that world). basically, he has suppressed everyones sins and negative emotions and desires...so the population of the world is in a zombie-like trance state.

overall, the whole situation just feels...wrong and completely unnatural. is this what it's like when a religion finally reaches its logical conclusion? throwing away everything, even your own life for what you believe to be the "greater good"?

well, they certainly did use a sick theme for this games villains. all this to gain the power of a god and lead the whole world into religious subjugation.

disturbing, nauseating, revolting...would be just a few nice words to describe this situation if your immune to the suppression effects. nothing good could ever come of this.

edit2:

▼ yet more Tales stuff

oh looky, a red orb... (around an hour later on the 3rd floor and with a holy bottle active at that!) hmmm this goes in this slot to open the portal and... Lawless Vessel...? geez, is this thing guarding a characters ultimate weapon or something? can barely scratch it and that's with rokurou who's my heaviest hitter. stats...

58.8k hp, 1,555 physical defense... -_- seriously? tanky as F.

well, the final dungeon is good. nice location, nice appearance, great BGM. *sigh* makes me wish for another opponent like good ol' Nerifes of legendia. now that guy had great music for his fight. out of all Tales games i've tried over the years (granted i've only ever beaten a small few of them) Nerifes was always one of my favorite bosses with his great music.

yeah...you don't get a fight like that very often. :/

to play legendia again or not....hmmm...eh, i'll settle for a let's play since i already beat it once. that and listening to that epic theme song!

well, that aside, there is still one thing that bothers me about this game: when the F do these Fing herbs RESPAWN! the entire game, all the way up to near the end and not a single harvest point has EVER respawned! even if i fiddle with the system clock nothing happens. how am i supposed to buff my characters with herbs if they never respawn?

...i am NOT replaying multiple times JUST for that. oh and endgame...not even lvl 50 yet... which leaves me thinking that they really weren't pushing things to the lvl cap this time. you know, the lvl 200 cap.

come on, final boss fight. gimme another epic battle theme to listen to and a good hard brawl.

edit3:

▼ post-game Tales!

oh boy... well, the final boss was...easier than expect tbh and the BGM wasn't as epic sounding as Nerifes' track but it was still a good fight and ending.

now to grind Grade and check out the post game before i try NG+ for challenges on a higher difficulty!

ghost island, huh? sounds dangerous if it gathers power from all of existence. you don't see things like that too often.

and what's this? a new class 4 zone? bosses you say? what...the... O_O oh YES! Boss Rush Mode has been unlocked! aw YEAH! SWEET!

the loot from that island must be wonderful and the challenge high. ^_^ now THAT will be fun.

ok...this is unexpected but still awesome. not only is the class 4 zone: Elite Quarter a boss rush but it's MULTIPLE of each boss at once! >:)

...w...t...h... that is "ghost island"? i've seen some pointless quests before but come on. that isn't even a reward, it's a joke...literally. screw it, i'm going for the REAL post-game dungeon.

lol see the 2nd section for a real challenge, kamimatsu! it's not just boss rush island, it's multi-boss rush island!

well, that "boss island" was a let down. >.> only about 4-5 rounds of bosses. not the boss rush fight i expected. and since i don't care enough to finish all the sidequests i guess that's it for Berseria.

pretty good game overall, nice length, good story which leaves things somewhat subjective in that...who is the real villain?

velvet for fighting for vengeance...F the consequences.

or artorius who fights for a world of peace, free from suffering and pain.

when you play through it all the way and stop to think about the overall plot it actually leaves that question rather subjective. it just depends on how you look at it. some may see velvet as the villain for her role while others like myself (for his methods) may see artorius as the villain. though i won't say velvet's a hero...shes not as much a villain as artorius imo.

guess it's back to Fate/Extella for me though it's unlikely i'll stick with that one for too long. the monotony of the Dynasty Warriors style of game design gets old reeeal quick. it's not a form of game design i can handle for too long without growing bored.

That's a reference to ToS:DotNW. I can't say how without spoiling the plot of the game or any major twists, but I'll hint that the exact thing it referenced is something I gave a hint about earlier, and knowing how the reference applies is itself the spoiler.

the first 2 Jazz Jackrabbit games. i know the first one has a pretty nice soundtrack as i downloaded that long ago but i've yet to try the actual game. 92.94%...i'll see if i can get those once this finishes downloading in a bit under 2 hours. heres hoping they're decent games.

next 2 gamefly games are... well, i'll know in a little while once they scan the 2 i sent back.

edit2: uh... well, they might run on 3x. well, the first game maybe. but i don't remember how to install it through dosbox so i'm still stuck.

such a shame...

the Jazz Jackrabbit games should work perfectly in a Virtual Machine and Wine, so you can run the games on Ubuntu in a Virtual Machine with no trouble.

The first game only needs DOS. So any OS with DosBox should do.

No need to install anything, that was before installation became a thing lol.
Unpack it somewhere, mount the dir, and run jazz.

▼ Click to collapse

If say the game is in ~/dos/Jazz/, start dosbox and type
mount c ~/dos/Jazz
c:
jazz

Edit: Jazz2 needs Win9x. So yeah try Wine. Also abandonia.org exists, right?
